Greetings lovelies! Hope you're all doing well and enjoying 2016 so far (minus the loss of many wonderful artists, jeebus). The picture above is from my Albuquerque Comic Con escapades! Link made a return, but sadly Alucard did not (I did not go Sunday as I originally planned...there's always next year!). Nonetheless, it was a good time and I look forward to Sabaku Con in May. And yes, I will be going Saturday and Sunday for it; Yoko Kurama and Vampire Princess Miyu will be on deck for that event, yay! I just have to get started on them, heh. I've got other cosplays I'll be doing this year as well and believe me when I say I am relieved that my original idea of 6-7 new cosplays will NOT be happening. One day perhaps, but not this year.

Anyways! Onto the writing and authoress goals for 2016. Yes, I am still working in retail, but this year I will be focusing mainly on the marketing and advertising of my Artemis Ravenwing brand. You read that correctly: BRAND. It's …

Five Seven Five - My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Review:

"Because you've never seen these things before. You'll be able to describe them in a way I can't. As human beings we take things for granted so much because we're too used to seeing everything."

Imagine living in a world where you never see the sky, never smell the rain, never hear the thunder. Imagine living in an environment where "the Chosen ones" are the only souls allowed to leave the safe haven to grab supplies and food. Imagine living in a place where everything you know now, such as how you live your everyday life, is only a dangerous thought to a colony.

Meet White Frost - a girl who lives in the dark and is only comforted by the scraps of paper with words that feel like a puzzle to her. Her cousin and only source of genuine human connection, Shade, loses his life to the unknown of the "outside" world. His friend, Salt, continues to help White gain more pieces to the puzzle of the world she longs t…

Scroll: Keepers of Genesis II - My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.

Review:

Light. Dark.

Sage Woods. Saffron Woods. Seventeen year old twin girls, two sides of a coin. In SEED, we learn about Sage being a "Wise One", but twists and turns within SCROLL reveal that not is all as it seems.

Book two is written in Saffron's POV, and the tone of the novel is far more dark than the first. But that is precisely why I love it. While Sage is the bookworm, Saffron is the common teen with the need to prove herself while enjoying the wild bits of life. Minus the often placed modern life references, I enjoyed Saffron's struggle between the dark pull to Finn and the intrigued light pull to Gabriel. And who could not enjoy the history and mythology placed within the series? Besides the dark tone, that is what is greatly enjoyable in this series to me. I look forward to book three.
