Please feel free to leave a comment on any post that tickles your fancy. I blog mostly about the movies I’ve watched and the books I’ve read, but there are other rants here and there. I’m a passionate person, so given the right topic, I can write far more than some may want to read. Consider yourself warned.

My Review Policy

Filmmakers, authors, publishers or publicists: please send an e-mail to flyingmonkeys78 [at] gmail [dot] com with “Review Request: Insert Film/Book Title” in the subject line. I will do my best to respond to every e-mail in a timely manner.

Please take a few moments to browse this page for an idea of what I typically read or my IMDb profile for what I typically watch. I’m most interested in works by women of color and Indigenous peoples, specifically science fiction and fantasy.

Note, I rarely post reviews for movies or books I did not enjoy. Reason being, if I didn’t like something, chances are I don’t want to spend more time on it by writing up why I didn’t like it. There are exceptions to this practice of course; for example, if I read something that’s offensive or outright hateful. But, for the most part, I like to keep things positive, which is why you won’t see many reviews under 3 stars.

Important: I only review hard copies; I do not accept ebooks, audiobooks, or digital downloads.

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Hi Leah,
    I can totally identify with the struggle. The fact that you write as often as you do is amazing. I am also a self-employed mom and often find my business taking precedent over my dream and first love… writing. I am horrible at the administrative part of getting published too. I have 4 books (all unpublished). I don’t send out nearly enough queries. It’s like I just wanna write and not have to do the work to get published, which is probably why I’m not. LOL!

    I did have some success with lit mags though. You might try that. There are a ton of them out there that accept e-queries and it’s a good place to build your publishing repertoire.

    Keep writing. You’re great.

    BTW… True Blood rules!

    Adding ya to my blog roll.

    SeLiNa 🙂
