Reviews and Writings Recap: January and February edition

So what has been my writing output during the first two months of 2017? I can't show any of my novel progress - although I do now at least have some sweet commissioned art to help with the eventual promotion process.

Otherwise, it's been the usual combination of cross-media-spectrum reviews, features and fan fiction. Here's the full set of posts, articles and stories, and where to find them.

P.S. January started with the birth of all-encompassing entertainment and lifestyle website Critical Hit, the product of a merger between specialist sites TheMovies.co.za (who I was associated with) and LazyGamer.net. Check it out sometime.

Love the ending tagline for your review of 'Sunstone.' Very true. :)
