There’s a definite sense of excitement when I see so many of my posts from last year coming together into a single form.
For the second year in a row I’ve compiled an ebook with the content from my blog though this time I’m selling direct via PayPal. You have your choice of PDF, EPUB or MOBI formats and you will receive your copy via email after payment. Patrons, if you haven’t already got your copy, go to this post on Patreon and it should allow you to download the version you want – if it doesn’t work let me know ASAP and I will email you a copy.
Buying the ebook helps support the work I do on 100 Word Anime and hopefully I’ll be able to continue to grow the blog and produce content people would like to read. Though I would like to take this moment to…
CAVEAT: IN MY OPINION Hi all, I know I have been quite quiet as of late, part of that is I am just rushed off my feet lately but another part is that I have been binge-listening to a whole world of new podcasts I’ve stumbled upon, one of which is Potterless. Potterless, the name […]
There’s a good chance a lot of people reading this will already know the ins and outs of Pinterest Traffic, however, I know there will be a few out there who, like me, have yet to stumble on this relatively easy and effective method of attracting new readers. I have to give the credit for […]
Lately I’ve been working a lot on my idea generation skills as one thing I struggled with a lot when I first started blogging, (gosh, I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year) and still do today, is coming up with interesting ideas for original content besides reviews and I’d be willing to bet most […]
I am just loving Kickstarter since I started using it – here’s another great campaign that David over at Another Anime Review has turned me onto. A great new EP by singer/songwriter Rachael Kilgour – check out this interview with the lady herself and go on over to her campaign to pledge your support (I have) any […]
Hello! So today I want to tell you about the brand new, exclusive comic book called Science! by Jason Inman & Ashley Victoria Robinson and how you can get it because let’s be honest, just knowing it’s exclusive makes you want it already, right? Right. Some of you may already know but Jason & Ashley […]

Hello, everyone! You know how I’ve written not so long ago a post about reading slumps, well I figured out that I could also write ARCs 101 and I’m going to try to make a detailed post about everything you should know when it comes to Advance Review Copies from what they are, how you can get them, the pros and cons of them and so much more. Stick with me, hope it’s going to be a fun ride!
What is an ARC?
ARC is the abbreviation for Advance Review Copy, they are an uncorrected edition of an upcoming release that publishers usually send to bloggers, booktubers, librarians, booksellers and more. Its main purpose is for marketing, people that get ARCs for free will promote the book and spread the word about the new release therefore making more people buy it and read it.
A bit of promotion for a cause deserving of it … Into the Woods is the title and theme for this assortment of short stories, poems, essays, music, and one walking meditation. Each piece is unique in tone and genre and the result is that the collection captures the fascinating, frightening, fun, healing, and fantastical […]

I know I’ve been quiet as of late (so very, very busy) but this article is interesting and has catalysed a good discussion in the comments.
I have been avoiding the news lately as I am one to do when things become difficult in my life and I have to shut out some negative influences so I heard about this issue quite late – essentially once Trump had decided to discontinue these actions. I try not to comment on politics as it’s usually controversial but having experienced inordinate levels of stress and trauma growing up and knowing the effect and changes it has had on me then and as an adult in everything from my views on the world to my methods of processing emotions, I cannot even begin to imagine the suffering these children are experiencing and will experience in circumstances that are five, ten, twenty times worse than my own were.
It is more than reassuring that the majority of what I am reading about this particular issue is centred around recognising the long-term effects of childhood trauma (such as this article) as opposed to a way to push political agenda (though, there is some of that out there but you won’t find it on my blog).
Thank you, Diana.
This child was not removed from her mother at the border, but her cries demonstrate the stress these children are under even without being separated from their parents. Time Magazine cover.
This isn’t a political blog. and yet there are times when it’s vital to speak out and use whatever platforms we have available. This is such a time.
The US is in the midst of a moral crisis as the Trump Administration continues a border policy that results in the systematic abuse of immigrant children. Many Americans, of both parties and of all faiths and walks of life, are horrified, and we are doing what we can to support these children and their families by sharing our outrage, time, talent, and treasure.
There are some people who insist that these children are just fine. And physically, that may be true. But that comment conveys a lack of understanding about…
Hey guys! First unboxing post, ooo exciting! I doubt there will be a lot of these (unless I inexplicably begin to get much more interesting post than I have up until this point) so I don’t know how good I’ll be at it but … here goes nothing eh? Backstory A couple of months ago […]
As mentioned in my last post, Secret Book Exchange is a Facebook group I’m an admin of that organises book exchanges every month – however, things have changed recently. With a new name and hopes of becoming something more of a book club, I present to you: We chose this name (which we know we share with […]
As mentioned in my last post, Secret Book Exchange is a Facebook group created by Isha and Cassandra that organises and coordinates monthly book exchanges! Simple as that! And exciting news this month is … I became an Administrator! I’ve so enjoyed being a part of this group so when they put out a call […]
Hello! So this is a tad late but I really wanted to share with you all this awesome group of ladies I’ve met recently! Several weeks ago, I saw a post in the Owlcrate Society Facebook group asking about possible interest in joining a group that arranged exchanges between the members anonymously each month. I […]
