I can’t do much because things (life-wise) are still… not where I want them to be, but I wanted to do a giveaway for 2 copies of the compact version of BTS’ upcoming anthology album, Proof. It makes me feel happier to share the love with fellow ARMY and get a copy to someone who couldn’t afford it at all or would have to choose between it and an essential item. 

So, here’s how to enter:

Comment below with:

  • Something the member you’re most attached to (either your bias, if you have one, or the member you feel you’re the most similar to) has done or said that lives in your head rent free!
  • A moment or memory that made you feel like you’d proven (to yourself/the universe) that you were an ARMY!

(It could be something like “I never miss a Live. When I first got into BTS, I was up at 5AM to watch their lives even though my grasp of Korean sucks” or “I cried so hard when I rewatched their MAMA 2018 acceptance speech… you know, the one”. Something that made you think to yourself “hey, I… I’m really here”)

Small Stitch Giveaway 2019

Can y’all believe it’s been FOUR YEARS since I started running Stitch’s Media Mix?

I know I can’t!

I started this site in 2015 because all I had for an online presence as a blogger was Tumblr and I wanted something more stable and permanent in order to get a shot at writing for outlets like BookRiot or The Mary Sue. (The latter did happen, by the way! So neat!)

I’ve had good months and bad months, but at the end of the day I love having my website and this space to talk about the things I love and the stuff I can’t stand. I love that I have been able to become a better and more accessible writer thanks to y’all! I love that I have loyal readers who pop in to see what I’m wailing about now, folks who are interested in my thoughts on fandom and urban fantasy.

But most of all, I love y’all!

I couldn’t do ANY of this without y’all supporting me and my writing!

So to my fellow Anita Blake hate-readers, my “frustrated with fandom, but still a part of it” nerds, and everyone that’s ever gone into a reading spiral on my site:

Thank you for reading and for sharing my work! I am so grateful for you all!

And I’d like to show that appreciation with… a giveaway.

A tiny giveaway because I’m beyond broke, but a giveaway nonetheless.

One lucky website subscriber will win ebook copies of two of the novellas in Alyssa Cole’s Reluctant Royals series, the F/F romance Once Ghosted, Twice Shy and her upcoming M/F story Can’t Escape Love (out March 19).

Two other winners, if there are enough comments to justify expanding the giveaway a bit, will simply each get an ebook copy of Once Ghosted, Twice Shy OR Can’t Escape Love (depending on which book you already have).

Basically, this giveaway is open to anyone that:

  • Subscribes to my website
  • Who comments on this post using the account/email address they subscribe with
  • Has a US Amazon account

So folks, if you want in: comment away! I’ll announce the winners at the end of the month!

Giveaway Post #1 – Strange Special Interests

This is the first of several giveaway posts meant to celebrate the second anniversary of my website and share the things I’ve been focused on this past year.

Giveaway Post 1

I have a ton of strange special interests.

For the past six or seven months, one of my most obnoxious interests has been cannibalism in fiction and nature. Normally, I’m a big baby. I can’t watch most horror movies and only made it three episodes into the Hannibal series before I had to turn it off. I don’t do body horror.

But then, I had two back to back hits with fictional cannibals and hello new conversation topic that made the people around me incredibly uncomfortable.Read More »

If you could be in charge of any film in the DCEU and had all the different characters in the DC multiverse, what film would you make?
