    October Reads: 2019

    Hi! (waves) ^_^ I had to go a little easier on myself this month, because I think I overdid it a bit in September. Lol! 52: Batman: The Killing Joke Author: Alan Moore, Illustrator: Brian Bolland Genre: Comic Book, DC Comics Rating: 4 stars Reviewed: No I like how we get a Joker origin story and we still don’t get his name. This was quite dark. Like, the Joker is an actual psycho. Alan Moore also wrote Watchmen, which is super violent and super dark as well, so I really should have expected it. I didn’t, but I thought this was good. On a side note, I decided to read…

    September Reads: 2019

    Happy October! 😀 You guys. This was such a great month for reading. I just can’t. I’m so happy. ^_^ But I’ll stop gabbing because I finished 11 books this month and have stuff to say! 😀 41: The Poison Diaries Author: Jane, The Duchess of Northumberland Genre: Horror Rating: 4 stars Reviewed: No This was kind of like a handwritten journal with drawings. It’s a fictional account of a boy who can communicate with plants, and the ones in the poison garden try to convince him to kill his evil overseer with their help. They tell him stories of how they’ve killed people, and it’s weird but interesting, and…

    Release Day Party: Garden of Ravens

    Poetry book is out today!! 😀 To celebrate, I thought it would be fun to go over the different sections and talk about them or whatever. ^_^ I organized things in a way that I thought would make sense or at least a way that made sense in my head. If you’ve been around the cafe for a while or have read any of my books, you might recognize a few poems, as everything that’s published on this blog or in a novel are also in this book. That might account for maybe ten poems, but they’re here. I’ve mentioned that I write song lyrics for fun sometimes, so some…

    May & June Reading Wrap Up (2019 Edition)

    All righty, I finally feel like I’m not dragging my feet with the reading so much anymore. I think it really slows me down when I read stuff I don’t like. I just get all kinds of deflated. As it stands, I’m still on track for my goal, but I lost the nice lead I built up at the beginning of the year. Haha. I’m trying to tell myself that it’s okay if I don’t meet my goal. Like, if I only read 50 books, that’s still really good! Plus, I’m still two books ahead of schedule, so… ^_^ 27: I’m A Narwhal Author: Mallory Loehr, Illustrated by: Joey Chou…

    Cover Reveal: Garden of Ravens Edition

    Still getting things together, but the cover is done and I didn’t want to wait to spread it around! ^_^ When it came time to get a cover together for my first poetry collection, I knew what I wanted in theory. But poetry books aren’t often very elaborate. They’re mostly simple with a lot of negative space. It probably goes without saying, but a typical cover wasn’t going to work for me. Luckily, I have a designer who knows what she’s doing, and she was able to talk me into a happy medium between something plainer and something that would grace the cover of a paranormal book. ^_^ I wanted…
