About

Zigzag Timeline is a blog about anything having to do with books. The title, "Zigzag Timeline," refers to the storytelling device some writers use in which the narrative, after chugging along for a while, skips ahead in time for dramatic effect and then fills in what happened via flashbacks.

Unfortunately, between my day job and my own writing, I don't have time for new review requests at the moment (I'm still catching up on requests from over a year ago!). However, I am happy to host author interviews, book spotlights, guest posts, and cover reveals in all fiction genres except erotica. If you're interested in scheduling something, don't hesitate to email astralcolt (at) gmail (dot) com.

I, Mary Fan, am the author of Starswept (YA sci-fi), the Jane Colt trilogy (space opera), the Flynn Nightsider series (YA dark fantasy), and the Fated Stars novellas (YA high fantasy). I am also the co-editor of Brave New Girls YA sci-fi anthologies, which are dedicated to encouraging girls to explore STEM professions.




In accordance with the FTC Guidelines for blogging and endorsements, Zigzag Timeline would like you to know that while I do purchase my own books for review, you can assume that most books reviewed here at Zigzag Timeline were sent to me by the publisher or author.  Receiving a book from a publisher or author in no way guarantees a review, and I will always give my honest opinion about  a book.
