I'm going to the Governor's Ball Music Festival on Randall's Island this year. I can't wait! It's going to be amazing. I was looking at pictures from last year and it looked absolutely nuts. Plus, I looked on the site and saw they're putting an emphasis on cuisine this year, which means plenty of cool food for yours truly to gorge herself between shows. I cannot wait.

I'll be posting pictures of it all, from hotel to shots of the ferry. My husband and I will also be meeting some people there, so it'll be a group affair.

It's super cool to be getting out and doing things. I feel like such a homebody sometimes, even though I've actually done more in the past two years than I have in my whole life. I guess I'm still getting used to it.

Next events I'll be looking at will be conventions and conferences of the writerly persuasion. Keep a lookout.

First Up!

I've made some changes to my REVIEW site. I'm not charging for reviews. I think I'm just going to have a DONATIONS button so that people can support the site. It seems the better route to go. I really want to get as many submissions as I can, so I'm making it as open as possible. Donations are definitely encouraged, though!

Second...

This site here is going to get a mini-overhaul. My review site is looking all kinds of awesome right now, and I'm looking to transfer that awesome to my writing site. I think I'll make it similar to the review site, so that it feels like they're connected to each other without being outright identical. So, I'll probably work on that very soon.

Third (and final)...

I'm really tired of working my 9-to-5, so I'm thinking about freelancing on top of everything else I Gaming and Then Some, which he also has a website for. I am currently doing an editorial series on the site on the game Dark Souls II (super hard game to play). I also edit most of the reviews on the site, and even some of the press releases. So, with some actual experience under my belt, I think I can get a pretty respectable CV together.
have going on at the moment (reviewing, publishing my own work independently, etc...). I already freelance a little, but not for money. My husband has a podcast called

I just really want to be working on what I love to do full-time: writing and reading! And taking some freelance work would be a good way to start on that, no? I know the freelance world of writing can be a bit iffy, so I'm going to dive right in and see what's out there. Plus, I've been thinking about submitting some of my unpublished shorts to literary magazines (or, perhaps, doing some especially for literary mags!), so that could be exciting. It'll, at the very least, be good for exposure.

(I'll be steering clear of those freelancer sites, though. They're pretty much quicksand.)


So, that's what's going on in my neck of the woods. Later, my little readlings!
Hey guys and gals,

M. Harrison Reviews is finally up and running. I'm reading like a maniac and plan on having a review out at least twice a week to start! So tell every writer you know that I'm now doing reviews for every fiction genre (excluding a few, which you can learn more about HERE)!

I plan on doing more than just indie reviews in the future. This is only the beginning!

In other news, I am also working diligently on the second installment of The Cafe Chronicles. There are only a few more scenes to be written and then I will be editing it and publishing. So, for everyone who is awaiting the next book, it's coming.

And if you have not had the pleasure of reading the first book, you can purchase it HERE. I appreciate the support so much as I try to make something out of my first loves, reading and writing.
