On The Drawing Board: Taylor Loves Peeps!

Hello, Internet! As you may or may not know, I got involved in a deep controversy yesterday over marshmallow Peeps.

To settle the score…Dude Princess Taylor Hatflield of Americana Fairy Tale demonstrates the proper way to eat a Peep. Because Taylor is quite the proper gentlemanly princess! #HatersToTheLeft!

At The Movies with Lex Chase: 10 Cloverfield Lane

Aaaah. 10 Cloverfield Lane. I was pumped. As often as I invoke the name of Saint. J.J. Abrams, my expectations were in the stratosphere. Seriously. My own author bio that appears in every one of my books states I unapologetically loved the ending of Lost. Even five years after the show ended, I still talk about it. But back to Cloverfield. Or should I say 10 Cloverfield Lane. We all know the original Cloverfield was J.J.’s over-hyped love letter to giant monster movies. A found footage monstrosity, and while the intention was pure, the execution was a mess. As you can see, … Continue Reading →


At The Movies with Lex Chase: Zootopia

Hello, Internet! As my weekly Facebook check-ins indicate, I watch a lot of movies. So much I have to budget for IMAX 3D tickets. And today, I’m talking about Disney’s Zootopia AKA Breaking Baaa-aaaa-aaad. The premise of Zootopia is we meet Officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), a sweet bunny who’s a little left of center. She’s determined to protect and serve the “mean” candy-colored streets as a part of the Zootopia PD. She’s resourceful, full of ideals, and has an iron-clad sense of right and wrong. She’s sent into a cotton-tail spin when she meets sly, hustling, fox Nick Wilde … Continue Reading →

Assembling Friendship at Joyfully Jay!

 Hello, Internet! It’s time for the Some Assembly Required blog tour wrap-up! Yesterday, the tour concluded at Joyfully Jay, where I reveal my quirky relationship with Bru Baker via 100% real text messages. We’re terrible influences on each other and obviously we need adults. Previously on Valentine’s Day I was over at Sinfully Gay Romance Book Reviews giving a happy reading of one of my favorite scenes from Some Assembly Required. If you haven’t checked it out yet, give it a watch! I have a good time getting super into it. Blame it on my art school background! Don’t forget! The … Continue Reading →


Scale Tales: Don’t Forget to Track!

Hello, Internet! How we doin’? How we doin’? It’s another week of Scale Tales! Woot! Let’s get the bad news out of the way. I seem to be flipping trapped in a damned holding pattern about dropping weight. AUGH. The fantastic news I guess is I’m down 0.2 tenths of a pound? Yay? At least it’s something! When I started this adventure I was at 246, now I’m 239.4! Well. It’s moving. Very, very, very slowly.  It’s not a race, y’know? Though anyone that knows me I move faster than the speed of sound. The good news and today’s topic, the … Continue Reading →
