In spite of numerous personal problems that I really, really don’t feel like rehashing… I’m trying to keep things normal around here. The hanfic world, as usual, is my refuge and right now, it’s a pretty damn good place to be.
Anyway, the August spotlight is just one story, but it’s a good one that I know a lot of people are enjoying right now:
You are a drug and it is quick by Juliet
Enjoy that, and check back in a few days for some reviews, and don’t forget to check Extemporaneous for my most recent fic updates.
Despite my wifi being in and out (mostly out) for over a week now, I was determined to get this spotlight posted on time. I had intended to have an interview as well, but things didn’t quite work out that way. So, enjoy this one story spotlight:
Changes by Elle!
Check back in a few weeks for reviews, if all goes as planned and my wifi cooperates.
I’m sorry. I think my post titles just keep getting cheesier, don’t they? Well, regardless, it is May 1st and that means it’s time for a new spotlight! Yes, singular. I’m trying out that new concept this time and only spotlight one story, but with a little bit more in depth of a feature than I usually do. So, without further ado, the May spotlight is…
Brothers Keepers by Aimster!
Check back later this month for a review of that very story, along with all the rest of my reviews of course. I also have a few more new things planned for this month that I hope to get done, but with Hanson Day coming up in two and a half weeks, it’s anyone’s guess as to how much I will actually accomplish. Nevertheless, be sure to check back, and if you’re going to Tulsa, don’t be too shy to track me down and say hi!
I don’t know how it’s taken me two weeks to notice, but somehow, I forgot to announce here that I have overhauled the spotlights section. It has bigger preview images and space to say a lot more about each of the spotlights. While I haven’t posted any new spotlights for April, you can look forward to more regular spotlights (though perhaps not always three per month) in the future.
This month, I’ve also updated the directory, bringing it up to over 4,200 links total, and added a few missing terms to the glossary.
And, of course, I’ve posted the new reviews. For April, the reviews are:
I also have one guest review this month! The wonderful Rhoda has reviewed The Innocents by Paola. You can find that review in the Shout It Out section.
And of course, come back next month for the following reviews:
It’s that time of the month again–spotlights time! But before that, I want to talk about something you may have seen promoted on my twitter and tumblr.
There is now a PTH newsletter! It’s something I’ve debated doing for a few years now, but finally decided to stop being lazy and do. It will come out once a month, on the first Friday of the month (debut issue out on February 5), and will feature updates from PTH, Extemporaneous and all around the web. Hopefully it won’t keep you all from coming here to get the news, but it will be the absolute easiest way to get all the latest hanfic news and updates delivered right to your inbox so you never miss anything.
If that sounds like something you would be interested in, either click here or fill in the little subscription box over there in the right sidebar. You’ll get a confirmation email with a link to click on to verify your subscription, and then you’ll get the first issue on Friday.
After you’ve done that, check out the spotlights!
Check back in a few weeks for the reviews and some other fun updates for this month!
