On my previous site angelahighland.com, I did a lot of general series of blog posts. As part of porting the site content over here, some of that content came here, and some of it went to annathepiper.org, my personal site. If there’s a particular series of posts you’re looking for, this page is the reference point for them.
Posts About Books and Publishing
Advice on Self-Publishing
This is a series of posts I’ve been working on about my experiences self-publishing Faerie Blood. There’s more to come on those posts, which are here.
How to Read Ebooks (2010-2011 Posts)
I’m an ebook author, so it is of course in my best interests to make sure that any of you folks who might want to read my work have the ability to do so! And since I am also a voracious reader of ebooks myself, I periodically get asked questions like “what format should I buy ebooks in?” or “what ereader should I get?”
These are the posts I did back in 2010 and 2011 about how to read ebooks.
- Part 1: Ebook formats
- Part 2: Ebook pricing
- Part 3: Touchscreen vs. e-ink
- Part 4: Do you want a dedicated reading device?
- Part 5: How to read ebooks on your computer
- Part 6: How to check out library ebooks
- Part 6.1: More on checking out library books
- Part 6.2: Adobe Digital Editions on Linux
I also have a pretty long history of writing book reviews, both on my blog and on Goodreads. I’ve backed off on this pretty hard since I started publishing my own stuff, but nonetheless, my book review posts can be found here on annathepiper.org.
The Trilingual Hobbit Reread
Because when you’re a Tolkien nerd and a language geek, reading The Hobbit in one language just is not enough. When the Hobbit movies started ramping up for production, I was also ramping up on wanting to improve both my French and my German. Over the course of many, many months, I slowly re-read The Hobbit not only in the original English, but in French and German translation as well.
All my posts on this effort can be found over here on annathepiper.org.
Posts About Music
I had quite a bit of post activity about my favorite bands and genres of music on angelahighland.com. That content has moved over to annathepiper.org now.
Great Big Sea
Great Big Sea, my all-time favorite band, dominated my posts up until they broke up in 2013. So they got their own category. You can find those posts here.
Quebecois traditional music is my other big musical fandom, and I post a great deal about the various bands I follow in the genre. All my posts about that are here.
While I’m operating purely as a fan here rather than a formal reviewer of any kind, I semi-regularly post reviews of albums I like in the folk/trad genre–particularly Quebecois trad. You can find those posts here.
