Update: Life and Books (Dec 2021) + Last Art of the Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! I don't know why I said that with so much enthusiasm. I don't actually feel enthusiastic about it. But it's still a new year, regardless of how I feel, so *shrug* I managed to squeeze in one last finished art piece though, and I am enthusiastic about that! It's Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Centaur! (His nose gets cold.) (Also technically he's a cervitaur.) I'm...
 
Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2021

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2021

I love pretty book covers! They can definitely entice me to read a book I probably wouldn't have been quite interested enough in otherwise. Or make me more excited for a book I already wanted to read. Or make me want a print copy, just so I can look at it whenever I want. So, as I think I've said before, this is a post I really look forward to each year. I included some runners-up, but I...
 
Book Recs: 10 Christmas-Themed Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books (4)

Book Recs: 10 Christmas-Themed Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books (4)

I know I already did one of these SFF Christmas books posts this year, but I have just SO MANY books written down, and each year I find more, so I have to do more than one post a year in order to try and catch up! And for this one I decided to gather up a bunch of the mlm romances I have on my list. (If that's not for you, don't worry, there are links to the other posts at the bottom, and they...

Quick Reviews: Hoofbeats & Heartache // Claw Marks & Card Games // Suspects & Scales // Rocks & Railways

For this batch of quick reviews, I have a bunch of books in Maz Maddox's Stallion Ridge series! It's a series of connected m/m romance stories, so I recommend reading them in order, though each focuses on a different main couple, set in a fantasy Wild West world filled with different paranormal creatures. All these books are quick, sweet reads that have uncomplicated plots and focus mostly on...

Update: Life and Books (Mar 2021) + I Finally Made Some Art!

So it appears we've made it through March? I've been pushing myself too hard because I need the mental distraction, but that means a lot of headaches, and I banged my bad foot against something, and I temporarily hurt my arm (though it seems back to usual tennis elbow pain now), so not my best month. But I made some art! Something I have not done for almost a year. And I really, really love it....

Update: Life and Books (Feb 2021)

Another month gone by. For some reason I keep thinking it's June? I've acquired some allergies(?) and new aches and pains to add to the list of health problems, none of which are serious, but they still suck, and they're conflicting with other problems, but I'm still chuggin' along. I've worked on some art (which isn't ready to share yet) and played some games! It hasn't been good for my...

Update: Life and Books (Jan 2021)

So. It's been a month. An attempted coup. A second impeachment. An inauguration. Stock market stuff. At least some of those things are good! Still, it's just been a lot, on top of personal life, health, etc. I decided to go back and add a background to the Jacovine vampire smut I shared over a year ago but never really got to finish because that was when my head nerve problem started. The...
