Cover Update

I’ve been milling around wondering what to post, so I decided to do a shout out to my friend, Heidi. A few months ago, she mentioned she was taking commissions to do art work. I asked if she could help me out with a cover for my novelette, Mine.

I was not disappointed. The cover is still in the works, but she sent me an update.

Isn’t she beautiful ^_^ I was so surprised that it looked so realistic. I can’t wait to see the final project.

If you want a commissioned piece, send her a message at heidi.reyes2@gmail.com.

Now, I’m off to procrastinate and re-read some novels.

New Books!

My new books came in last week! (Still waiting on one, but it’s coming from the UK, so I’ll give in another week :3 )

Behold, the Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix. I absolutely fell into love with these books 025when my friend, Lily, lent them to me. It’s been at least two years since I’ve read them and I love rediscovering all the characters once more ^_^

Sorry, nothing quite gets me excited than new books (even used ones). I was bouncing up the steps of the house, humming as I hugged the packages to my chest. Luckily, the neighbors weren’t around. My other friend Mollie has to talk me out of spending all my money on books (she doesn’t know about these yet).

027The other book I bought was Dead Men Do Tell Tales by Dr. William Maples. I was first introduced to this book in my first year of college. It was my English Lit class. We were paired up and an assigned a chapter to do a presentation on. My chapter?

Dismemberment ^_^

It might be weird but I find this subject utterly fascinating. Maybe it has to do with the dramatizing of TV shows like the X-files, Forensic Files or Dr. G (one of these things is not like the others), but its so enticing. Perhaps I’ll do a crime drama (probably not).

The funny thing is, I shy away from gore, but skeletons, I’ll take them by the dozen. I’m still trying to convince someone to go to a body farm with me, but no takers yet /:

Really, if I could go back in time I would force my younger self to become a forensic anthropologist or a pathologist instead of accounting (or really anything besides accounting).

The great thing about literature is that we aren’t bound to one life, we can choose to live many, we can be anything.

(Right when I wrote that, the Shakira song from Zootopia played in my head). Anyways, happy reading to all, my books are calling my name.

So…

Hi again.

I have this horrible habit both off and on-line because when comes to not talking to people or posting something for awhile, I grow anxious and keep postponing the inevitable. Yep, that means going silent for sometimes up to a few months (I’m basically a hermit to my friends). It’s been an end to a few friendships in the past. However, I finally sucked it up to write this post…

So, hello again.

School is out for the summer but I’m playing catch up once again (yay summer terms).¬†On the plus side, I haven’t failed any classes (yet, still crossing fingers). I’m still trying to balance writing, crocheting and school. My goal is to finally finish up my novel, I want to finish it before my birthday. I have to go edit a fanfic I’m writing with a friend, and finish up more birthday presents (and start up on Christmas so it doesn’t sneak up on me again >_<). My hand is still sore from finishing my nephew’s birthday present.

Here is my nephew’s Baymax. With ‘The Big Sleep’ for scale. I finished it about two weeks after his birthday >_< I got the pattern from BlueRabbit on Etsy. Used double strands to make him bigger. You possibly can’t tell from the light (thank goodness), but I accidentally used two different colors x-x (good thing he’s four ^^;)

I need to get back into the swing of things and I have so many posts I need to read because school left me with little time to keep up with the blogs I follow.

Also, I just ordered the Old Kingdom trilogy by Garth Nix. I’m so excited! It’s a race to finish all three books again so I can read the fourth book, Clariel (it was the only one my friend didn’t have and I just stumbled across it on amazon). This is one of my favorite fantasy series and I highly recommend it.

Have a great week and happy writing, everyone
