Last reviews of 2014!

Well, here we are. Very nearly the end of the fifth year of PTH! In even better news (for me), I’m getting new, unlimited wifi installed as we speak! For now, I’m posting this from the old wifi, but the new stuff, sans data limit, will be up and running very, very soon. And that means streaming music! Streaming movies! HANSON LIVESTREAMS!

Okay. Sorry. Getting control of myself now. You’re here for the reviews, right? Well, they are…

Unfortunately, there was no Anthem era story finished for me to review this month, but I’m hopeful there will be at least one next month. Either way, I’ll be reviewing:

Those reviews may be just a bit delayed, as I’ll be reading some of the stories from my phone… at the airport… on the way to Cancun! :D

Last spotlights of 2014!

This year has gone by crazy fast, hasn’t it?! It’s very nearly been five years since I launched this site, and in that time, I have spotlighted some fantastic authors, stories and websites. This month is no exception!

For December 2014, the spotlights are:

I’ve also updated the directory today and added the fantastic Diamond’s site, Mirage back to the hostees page, as she’s been revamping it. Check those out, and head over to Extemporaneous for an update on how NaNoWriMo went for me.

See you in a few weeks for the reviews!

New layout?!

Well, I didn’t plan on this, but I got really bored while home sick from work for a few days, so…

It’s new layout time! will be celebrating its five year anniversary soon, so I figured it was time for another facelift. What do you think??? I’ve cleaned up a few sections as well and made a few very small changes here and there.

After you get done checking out the revamps, head over to the Blank Page Awards. The tiebreaker is only open until tomorrow night, and then it will be time to announce the winners!

Reviews and news

First, before I get into the reviews, I want to thank everybody who has voted in the Blank Page Awards! We’re in a tiebreaker round now that will end on Friday, so if you could please go vote in that and help me untie the handful of ties, I would really appreciate it.

And now… the reviews! I think I set some sort of record this month. All but two of the stories I actually reviewed are different from the ones on the list I posted last month. Thanks to missing chapters, missing content and stories that just weren’t complete like I thought they were, a lot of things had to change. On the plus side, an Anthem era story I’ve been loving was finished and… is archived again! I didn’t review any stories from there this month, but I did add a few back into my overall plan. I’ve had a few questions here about how to access those old stories, and I’m happy to say that the links I’ve provided to them do work again!

Okay. With the good news out of the way, here’s the list of stories I actually reviewed this month:

And up for review next month…

And with my reviews done for now, it’s time for me to dive back into NaNoWriMo. See you in December!

It’s November!

Yes, it is! And that means a couple things:

One, you have just a few days left to get your vote in for the Blank Page Awards. If you haven’t voted yet, go do it now!!

Two, it’s NaNoWriMo time and new review time, so I’m going to be very, very busy for the next few weeks.

And three, it’s new spotlight time. My picks for this month are:

So check those out, vote in the awards, and if you’re participating in NaNo too… good luck!
