Ahead of the game.

It really is nice to have so much free time again. My wallet is suffering, but it'll all be fine. The freak outs haven't lasted long enough to kill the spirit. Something ALWAYS comes up somehow.

And besides. I missed escaping to the outdoors. Even the vampire needs some scenery and peace. Shadow enjoys having me around more too. I do love that fluffy boy.

I started on my new system of posting reviews here on my blog! Just see the entry below this one. I usually just post on Amazon and Goodreads (my activity on Goodreads is linked to my Twitter account as well), but the more places to share my fellow indie authors' work, the merrier. I'm still really behind on my read and review list, sadly. It's every book lover's dilemma, where more books are added to the collection than being read. So many indies to read, so many novels from a plethora of series that I've followed for years...

I'm working on it! I really am! XD

Now onto the publishing news!

Cloak of Shadows by C.K. Dawn - my review.

"Well, she does like to say that you're drenched in arrogance."

C.K. Dawn brings us into the world of Lourdes Reese and Abigail Thorne, a hunter and apprentice in the King's Court. Everything we know about the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is a lie; dark creatures lurk in the shadows (netherwalkers) and the hunters throughout the ages descended from the first Knights fight them. There are Courts all over the world and Lourdes and Abbey serve in the one located in New York.

Abbey adores her mentor and strives for nothing but perfection, though she does fall prey now and then to caffeine highs, a teenage girl's mindset about attractive guys, and the wonders of gaming and Star Wars. Both characters are so relatable that one does not wish to stop following their adventures, whether i…

Ambitious stubborn masochist.

Yup, that's me.

This is probably the longest I have gone without updating here and I feel a bit ashamed. Time did get away from me. The side job took a lot away from me too.

Speaking of which, I no longer have the side job. Long story short, I ultimately had to decide to choose between uncontrolled chaos and peace...and sorry, but the career will always win. The kitsune tattoo on my wrist painting the kanji for "dream" serves as a reminder to never forget what is really important and the dream to have writing be the sole job is pretty much what I live for. I regret nothing.

I am looking for another side job though, one that really won't interfere so much. And truth be told, I do miss a ton of people from my former job.

I also need the side job to help me with my Comic Con adventures (and the dreaded school loans, ugh). I still want that book booth next year. Plus I truly enjoy dressing up as my favorite characters, whether I've created them or not. I'm nearl…
