I'm Alive!

Hey Everyone! 

My deepest apologies for the lack of posts and reviews lately. Things have been incredibly hectic at the lair as of late, and I have had lot of other things going on as well that have had a major impact on my blogging. 

So, what have I been up to the past two months? 

Well, I've been through a big health scare, I've had family come to visit over Easter, and I've been flat out working for Cohesion Press (be sure to check us out here). 

The last one is particularly important, because it means I have to change things up a little in order to maintain a healthy work/life balance. As the stay-at-home parent (well technically, work from home) for my beautiful daughter I also need to prioritise caring for her alongside work. 

So what does that mean for Smash Dragons?   

Well, it means that I won't be posting large reviews in the future. Don't worry, you'll still get reviews,  but they'll just be shorter and sharper. As much as I enjoy going into depth with my reviews it just isn't feasible anymore given my commitments. It also means that I'll probably only post a review once a week. As an editor, proofreader, and slush pile assassin for Cohesion Press I literally have a stack of stories and books on my desk to check out and work on over the coming months. Cohesion is also gearing up for something massive later this year, but that's top secret right now! So yeah, I'm incredibly busy. 

But fear not... my vision for Smash Dragons in the future is for it to still be very active (albeit in a learning and meaner form). 

Next week I'll be posting a review of Robin Hobb's latest book Assassin's Fate

Spoiler Alert. It's awesome! 

Oh oh... I almost forgot. Smash Dragons will be getting a much needed makeover in a few months. A new coat of paint, some tinkering etc. More on that in a few weeks. 

Be good to each other peeps, and keep on reading!

  1. Good to hear from you again, Matt! I'm going through a bit of a blogging/life balancing struggle myself so I know where you're coming from. Looking forward to you "sharp" reviews:-)
