Reviews, Awards and Anthologies, Oh My!

As summer begins to come to a close, I am surprised by how busy I still am. In fact, I’ll admit I feel a bit overwhelmed.

Now, you may be asking, why? The weather is going to get cooler. You won’t be doing outside events. Why would you feel so overwhelmed?

Well, let’s just summarize the past couple of weeks:

I read and reviewed Rachel Caine’s Sword and Pen, the latest book in her The Great Library young adult series for New York Journal of Books.

The Rite of Wands was a Top 10 Finalist in the Author Academy Awards. You can still vote for my book in the Fantasy category up till October 24th. On October 25th, I will be driving down to Columbus, OH to compete for the win and attend the amazing Igniting Souls Conference.

Today, I learned my short story, which is a mesh of #DoctorWho and #StarTrekVoyager, was accepted into the Unknown Realms anthology from Fiction-Atlas Press, coming out on October 28th.

And I’m also involved in a BIG secret project, which is so big, I am not even allowed to talk about it yet publicly. Phew!

Find out what my GR8Blog author friends have in store for this First Friday.

Mackenzie Flohr Joins The New York Journal of Books #tuesdaybookblog

DKQIJ2hUQAAc9IJ.jpg-largeDelighted to announce I am now part of the New York Journal of Books, a VERY highly regarded review source (like Publisher’s Weekly!) Reviewer Panel.

This panel includes bestselling and award-winning authors, journalists, experienced publishing executives, tenured academics, as well as highly experienced professionals across a number of disciplines and industries.

What does that mean? Well, that means you’ll start seeing me review both traditional and award-winning books exclusively in the Fantasy and SciFi genres on their website with a link to the review here!
