Hey all! I hope you all had a wonderful and productive week! I myself have been a little busy bee, mainly with trying to get rid of this darn cough. I have no desire to be sick for Katsucon the weekend of the 15th, so I'm on major med/tea/chicken soup mode. It hasn't helped that people have been consistently sick at my retail job since the holidays, but hey, it comes with the territory. At the moment I'm currently trying to recreate my mom's chicken soup from scratch, so wish me luck!

Author news first! I'm going to go into red sharpie mode in a couple of days once I print out what I have currently done on CHAMPIONS OF ARRYGN. I have the Barons of Blackwen to spruce up (and that is all I can give for now, otherwise I'd spoil it for those who haven't read the series yet!). I CAN however, give a small teaser at the end of this entry. How does that sound? ^_^

I'm also going to be donating a set of my novels to my alma mater for their "Rogue" reu…

I'm back!

Hey all! I am super sorry for the extra long hiatus - 2017 was rather crazy for me! I did some book booths, traveled to other cons out of state, fell in love, finally stepped down from a management position, and a few other goodies as well. I also changed up the blog! I thought a simple yet dark look would work considering my style of writing. ^_^

I recently bit the bullet of creating a cosplay page too! While I have no intention of partaking in contests and such, I do enjoy sharing my cosplay adventures with everyone. When I posed the question to people as well concerning it, everyone pretty much replied "JUST DO IT!" so I did! It's also fun when the boyfriend partakes in them as well. We're going to be doing a group Fire Emblem cosplay next month at Katsucon too, and I am SUPER excited for that. If you wish to follow my cosplay Facebook page, simply click here.

I believe you all have a burning question as well - have I been writing? Well, I did make a big decision…

The Kiss That Changed Me - My Review

My Rating: 4 stars

My Review:

A lovely end to an intriguing trilogy!

Kristy Nicolle's final novel in the Tidal Kiss Trilogy expands into the other realms of the mer, whom both Callie and Orion both search for in order to stop the coming war from destroying the balance of their world. From the selkies to the water nymphs, we just get the all too familiar feeling that even though the cultures and beliefs vary, we are all part of the same world.

I enjoyed the growth Callie shows here in the final novel versus the 18 year old American who simply wanted to escape from the first novel. She grows into her own and becomes that ruler that she never believed she could be. Orion's growth is wonderful as well. Coming from the previous novel as someone who nearly strangled Callie with his love, we now see him as someone who has matured and accepted (well, understood would be the true word really, because Orion IS from the old world) that Callie could very well take care of herself. And Azu…
