From Sky to Sky by Amanda G. Stevens {book review}

I've read a ton of books lately (nothing unusual there, hehe), and I thought I'd share some of my favorites over the coming months. There won't be a book review every week, of course, but they are pretty easy posts to do when life is otherwise busy. Right now I have an editing job I'm focusing on, so easy is muchly needed at the moment.

So, let's kick off the reviews of 2021 reads with a book that quite surprised me.

FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book. These are my honest thoughts.

From Sky to Sky by Amanda G. Stevens

This book blew me away and soared far and above how much I enjoyed the previous book in this series. The cover is gorgeous, and the story was too.

Abbreviated Hockey Season

Hey, friends. It's hockey season, but in a Covid-19 year, you know that means it ain't going to be normal.

This season is an abbreviated one, with only 56 games in 116 days or so. There are normally 82 games plus post-season games for the teams that qualify. It's much shorter this season, but at least we're getting a season.

Since several players on the Dallas Stars (my home team) had acquired Covid-19 right before the start of the season, they had their first four games postponed. Even now, many games and a couple of weeks into the season, there are teams across the league that are having chunks of games postponed due to Covid-19 outbreaks among the coaching staff and/or players.

Updates Galore

Hey, friends. How would you like an update on a few things in my life?


Since the recent acquisition of PayPal by China, I have changed the method of payment for my copy editing work. Rather than PayPal, clients now will pay by mailed check. They will still receive a professional invoice, which will be the trigger to stick the check in the mail. The quality of my copy editing work has not changed, so hopefully my clients will continue to be satisfied with my work.


So I caught Covid-19 on Christmas Eve. Yippee. From raging and unpredictable fevers to intense and draining fatigue like I've never before known, this illness wiped me out and stole all my energy to the point where I couldn't even read for about a week and a half. Recovery has been longer than that of most illnesses I've ever had (if not all others), but I have finally, about a month after first acquiring the illness, returned to normal with no remaining shortness of breath (as of Friday last). What remains to be done is rebuild my stamina, which, naturally, took a hit over the past weeks of struggling to survive the ups and downs of Covid-19.
