Cat was kind enough to give me the heads up that pages to buy the first seven novellas of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, along with summaries, have been posted on Amazon. So here I give you the masterlist, 1-10, with short summaries.
In the film, “The Hanging Tree” starts as an acapella performance by Katniss (Jen Lawrence). She is joined first by birds (Mockingjays), then groups of rebels as the song morphs more into score. James adds choir and orchestra and it builds to an amazing crescendo with an enormous action shot. It is a huge musical moment in the film.
Sure, 12 is still our number. It’s the number of months my book was on the bestseller list. It’s the number of job offers Tom turned down before we found one close to home. And each day it’s the number of times I’m thankful there’s such a thing as family.
21 songs for when life gives you lemons and you don’t make lemonade because fuck that, you’ve worked hard enough this week, this time it’s life’s turn to make their own goddamn lemonade, and anyway, you’re drinking something a little bit stronger tonight.

This photo was taken over 20 years ago by Todd Robertson during a KKK rally in northeast Georgia. One of the boys approached a black state trooper, who was holding his riot shield on the ground. Seeing his reflection, the boy reached for the shield, and Robertson snapped the photo.
I think the officer’s expression says it all. This child standing before him is being taught how to hate even though he doesn’t understand it. He probably doesn’t understand the difference between this and Halloween.
If any post on my blog gets really big, I hope it’s this one.
