Five Fun Science Fiction Novels to Read in 2019



What makes these five (well, six) reads so awesome? They're all self-published.

Show these authors some love by checking out their work and leaving a review. :)


The Girl From Thandar (Synchronicity Book 1)


"When college co-ed, Scarlett, wakes up she knows something is off, but she has no idea just how off! Finding herself on a ship going god knows where Scarlett realizes she’s in trouble. Trouble turns out to be an intergalactic hell hole where slavery, prostitution and violence are not only accepted, but are the bread and butter of corrupt governments, criminals and raiders."


The Inter-Terrestrial: volume 1


"An alien scientist has a half-human "inter-terrestrial" son on the primitive planet of Earth. Aliens from neighboring planets (Mars and Venus) think they own the Earth and are adamant that it not be used by higher species without their consent. For twenty years, this alien father has been trying to figure out a way to get back to this forbidden planet to see his son, desperately looking for an opportunity to present itself."


"'Dookimon' is the hottest TV show in the galaxy. Broadcast from a space cube orbiting Uranus, it is a place where those who are genetically unique (mutants) can come to shine. But when the cube's central computer becomes self-aware and starts abducting innocent mutants, it is up to Charlie, an inter-terrestrial child of two worlds, to rescue them with his amazing powers and an unlikely robotic ally."


"A dishonourable discharge left Margo unable to find honest work on Earth. Signing onto a colonizing mission heading to a new world promised a fresh start. Or at least that's what she'd thought. 
Strapped into a crashing colony ship, she realized how wrong she'd been."

"Willow Grace is a brilliant medical student who enjoys partying just a little too much. Nych Haywiyth is an engineering student with an underground lab and a dirty little secret. The two of them were never meant to come together. "


Honorable Mention:

Lives Of E


"After an accident involving a quantum computer built by his best friend, Erik's life changes. Almost every day, it seems. At first he notices subtle changes in his life. Other days the differences are so extreme that he begins to question whether he is going insane or if he is just having a lucid dream. Unfortunately for Erik, figuring out what is really happening to him will be nowhere near as difficult as finding out if there is a way to make it stop."

  1. I love the idea of a self-published book. Science fiction is not my usual genre, but these sound fun.

Etiquette Rules I (Personally) Find Pointless

Etiquette is a tricky realm in which to maneuver. Often, it varies from place to place and country to country. What's polite in one area of the world (slurping your noodles in Japan = 🖒) could be considered unfathomably rude elsewhere. So, let's approach this from a modern, millennial etiquette perspective, shall we?

Five Etiquette Rules I (Personally) Find Pointless

1.) Handwritten Thank You Notes- I try to be an environmentally friendly and conscious individual, truly I do. And I think that is perhaps why I have such a beef with "thank you" cards. Actually, any cards. Holiday cards, birthday cards, get-well-soon cards....it's all just paper. And it's all going to end up in the trash or recycling.

That tree died for something I glanced at for 30 seconds. If you truly want to thank me for something or wish me well, just email or text. Let me know in person next time you see me. If we are bosom buddies, you may even have permission to call and tell me.

What to Wear to an Interview: Creative Edition

Let me preface: It's been a while since I've been to a job interview and the last time I interviewed it was for an Admin Assistant position. How you dress for a formal office role can easily differ from how you might dress for a more creative role - like digital marketing or social media management.

On Friday, I have an interview in downtown St Paul for an entry-level 'marketing communications' job and I'm . . . for lack of a better word - scrambling.

I don't own a pair of simple black trousers or a dress suit. My one black blazer (as you will see) is a little finicky and hard to coordinate. And I do not have a single pair of weather appropriate shoes that would not look horrendously out of place in a corporate environment.

(With regards to weather appropriateness - we just got another 8 inches of snow today. Ewww.)

So, I decided to scour my wardrobe to see what I could put together that would not only be interview appropriate but also fit the role of a creative…
