Hello kind strangers!
I have an official PayPal account set up to accept any donations you may feel inspired to gift. I will not beg, I will not grovel, but I will humbly ask for your help and support if you find yourself in a place that ables or inspires you to do so. Art is my passion but art does not pay the bills (despite it being beloved and utilized by all). 100% of all donations will go directly towards paying off my college student loans. Thank you very much to all of you who frequent my blog, to all of you who choose to donate, and to all of you who wish you could but perhaps are not in a place that allows you to do so.

I am excited to share with you all the official cover for the new YA Fantasy CROOKED RAVEN! The first book in the Otherworld Trilogy by debut author Talis Jones comes out June 26, 2018! I’ve been lucky enough to read an eARC and as a total fantasy lover I gotta say I’m very excited to see where this story goes next. It’s a bit Peter Pan meets Game of Thrones in Narnia, which obviously had me sold right from the start ⚔

I am an avid reader and a dedicated book blogger but sometimes I get requests from authors to review their books and unfortunately I just don’t have the time in my busy schedule and/or perhaps it’s just not quite my thing. So every once in a while instead of reading/reviewing their book, I’ll agree to put together a little post to help pass along the word in case any of you readers out there will find it interesting. This time it seems the book roulette has landed on a sci-fi thriller. It sounds pretty unique and maybe it’ll interest some of you. Here we go…

Just a heads up that I’ll be going radio-silent for almost three weeks. I will be serving on a mission trip in Korea (South, not North lol) to work with kids and will be unable to connect with you. So if you email me, tag me, or comment on a post, please don’t think I’m ignoring you! I will respond as soon as I can upon my return. But also, I admit that even if I did have internet access I would still be choosing to drop off the grid for those three weeks because if I’m distracted by the internet and work then I can’t be wholly focused on the present and the people around me.
I’m sorry to be dropping off the grid but this is important to me. I look forward to hearing from you all and (if you’re also a blogger) catching up on all your wonderful posts that I’ve missed.

Q1: Worlds of Ink and Shadow is a book written in beautiful prose that weaves together magic and fantasy with an almost biographical look into the Brontë siblings. How did this idea come to you to fuse these ideas into a historical fantasy?
