    Into the Drowning Deep: A Feminist Book Review

    In 2015, Imagine Entertainment sent a ship filled with media personalities, scientists, and crew to discover whether or not mermaids exist. No one truly expected for the made-for-TV voyage to be successful, but when the ship turned up weeks after being lost at sea with horrifying video and no bodies, it was obvious they had… Read More The post Into the Drowning Deep: A Feminist Book Review appeared first on F-BOM.

  8. It’s our birthday! Well, kind of. We began in November 2016 when Lindsey registered F-BOM as a business with the state of Minnesota. And before that, we were a media review blog Her Story Arc. And before that, we were Lindsey’s personal blog. As they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day. But one year… Read More The post Happy Birthday, F-BOM!

    The Werewolf Whisperer Book Review

    This past weekend I was lucky enough to get to sit down with Camilla Ochlan and Bonita Gutierrez, co-authors of The Werewolf Whisper, an independent urban fantasy series about a pair of women who team up in the aftermath of a “werewolf apocalypse”. When the Kyon Virus infects huge portions of the population, it has… Read More The post The Werewolf Whisperer Book Review appeared first on F-BOM. View the full article

    WisCon 42 Roundup

    We love WisCon! F-BOM founders Cecelia and Lindsey have been attending WisCon for the last 5 years and each time it has been a wonderful experience.

Located at the Concourse Hotel in Madison every Memorial Day weekend, the con features panels,… Read More The post WisCon 42 Roundup appeared first on F-BOM. View the full article

    What Do We Look For In An F-BOM Author?

    In order to demystify our process, and hopefully take down another barrier for indie authors, we want to talk about what we look for when authors submit their work to us. Read More The post What Do We Look For In An F-BOM Author? appeared first on F-BOM. View the full article

    Avengers excitement anyone?

    I'm watching Ant Man right now! For sure my family is excited about Infinity War. We've been gradually rewatching many of the films, and it's fun to see now how they all tie together, especially with the end credit vignettes on each film.

    Futuristic Lingo Quiz

    Interesting! I didn't realize there was a common forum of cyberpunk phrases used in fiction.

    Bookstagram Anyone?

    It can be time intensive. We've used the hashtag a few times with our F-BOM instagram, but ultimately we aren't trying to replicate what the bookstagrammers are doing. We just want to highlight the awesome F-BOM authors and their beautiful covers. I am in the Owlcrate facebook group and it is a super popular pasttime. It's similar to blogging though -a lot of people start and then stop after the initial rush of excitement turns in to the grind of content creation. As with anything you have to commit to it and realize that your excitement will ebb and flow, so you have to know what the goal is and reward yourself when you see it's results.

    Risk (why my book is like a Trireme)

    I love this comparison as much as I love playing Civilization. I discovered the game later in life but that didn't make it any less enjoyable. Now maybe can use this metaphor to get myself writing again....

    Women's History Month!

    Fantastic question. I think for me it is a more internalized path of self-care as I try to get my life ready for maternity leave. I've been steadily cutting back on commitments and figuring out where my new boundaries are (which are doubtless going to change again). For me pregnancy has also made me think back on how women have endured/celebrated womanhood throughout the centuries. There are so many unwritten women's names in history that we'll never know, but I take solace in the fact they achieved extraordinary things even when they knew they would get no credit. We know that women have done far more than what male historians have written down (or misinterpreted), and that often the role of home and hearth is vastly understated in our collective understanding of what influenced/influences our past and future.

    Futuristic Lingo Quiz

    I love this! Reminds me of the Neuromancer lingo. It was a hard book to follow, even after you get used to the jargon. I'm a sucker for wordplay though. I think you've come up with some cool ideas. I particularly like the screen scraper one

  25. Friends, there’s a part of me that dares to hope we might actually be in the midst of a lasting cultural shift. The explosion of attention on sexual harassment of women has reached every corner, from high-powered actresses to your Facebook feed. Living with, talking about, and managing sexual harassment isn’t new for women. What’s… Read More View the full article
