I’ve been so busy at work and at home that I found this quote to be apt about how I feel about it.

#BookReview – Archmage by R. A. Salvatore – Guest Submission


This book review was done by my awesome husband! I’m so excited to have his POV on my blog. I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

I received this ARC ebook from NetGalley and Wizards of the Coast in exchange for an honest review.

The pall that had descended over the North is gone, and a new day has dawned on a victorious Mithral Hall, but no matter how bright things seem on the surface, Drizzt and his companions know that what lurks just under their feet remains steeped in evil and charged with unimaginable power.

The dark elves of Menzoberranzan, including the powerful Archmage Gromph, aren’t done with Drizzt yet. And consumed by their own power struggles, feeling backed into a corner, the drow may just be desperate enough to call on demonic forces from the deepest reaches of the Abyss, and unleash a disaster even the Underdark could never have prepared for.
 
Archmage has everything Drizzt’s fans crave: action, adventure, characters that resonate with equal measures of warrior spirit and deep compassion, and no shortage of wicked dark elves!

#BookReview – Eternally Bound – By K. A. Young


Their passionate encounter happened long ago binding Caroline and Thaddeus for all eternity. A century later, Caroline is living a new life yet the memory has never lessened its hold on her—tormenting her with mere glimpses as her body continually cries out for him in her dreams. 

On the brink of madness, torn between the past and the present, Caroline is the only one that can decide her fate. When she returns to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains the lines between time and space come full circle. Will she find the courage to face the passion and pain that awaits her? Or will she run from her past, dooming them for all eternity? Continue reading “#BookReview – Eternally Bound – By K. A. Young”

New Page Announcement!!


Happy Hump Day Everyone!!!

So to try and incorporate more into my blog and find my niche I’ve added a page letting authors know that I’m interested in reading their books, whether they be new releases or just a book that isn’t getting the attention they want or maybe expect and that I’m offering my services for free.

ATTENTION AUTHORS!

I originally set up my blog to be just little personal stories, to share pictures of my awesome furbaby and to reach out to people to help me get over my fear of voicing my opinion to anyone outside my immediate circle but I realized that reading is such an important piece of who I am that I couldn’t not review books and share my thoughts with friends and new people.

I currently use NetGalley to review books and I also read a few books from authors I’ve met on Facebook but I want to reach a wider audience. Is this added page a good start? I’m so new to all of this and would really appreciate any and all opinions and comments.

I’ve watched author friends struggle to gain readers and it’s not easy to promote a book when you’ve either self-published or used a smaller publishing company. There is no budget to help you reach the audience you want to read your book and let’s face it, unless you’re spamming the hell out of yourself you’re not really making the dent you want or at least that’s the way it appears to me. You can post on twitter and facebook but unless you’re spending the money to boost who sees your post it isn’t going to be seen.

I commend all authors who have graciously shared the stories in their heads with us and just really want to help them succeed. I hope by creating this new page that I am able to accomplish my goal and help new authors in the process. Wish me luck!!

Random Photos from Las Vegas, NV – Native’s Edition


These were on my phone and I thought I’d share them. Just random photos of landscape of Las Vegas and around my house. Notice the dirt, rocks and heat that just come though each photo…..or maybe that’s just me because I live it everyday. I prefer winter in Las Vegas myself. Enjoy!
