Here it is! Finally, the cover for my soon to be released new book.
I’d like to thank Pablo Taylor for crafting such a beautiful cover for me.Thank you Dimple!
My new book is coming along, and will be ready to release before very long. I’m finishing up the last of the editing, so it will be in the next couple of weeks if I can get everything lined up in time.
So here comes the part where anyone reading this can help out. I would like to get some early reviews up on Amazon and Goodreads when I list it. Because of this, I’m willing to send out a free copy to about 10 people in hopes of getting honest reviews posted. I can’t require it, but if you’re willing to give it a read and then later post a review if you like it, I’d appreciate.
Keep in mind, this book is about a teen girl who ends up in the faerie realm (not the Tinkerbell kind of faeries).
Anyone who is interested please contact me. I’ll add you to the list of potential reviewers and let you know.
It has been a while since my last post. I’m going to have to get better at that. I really intended to post last week, but on top of still getting over a bad cold, I just had a lot going on.
Despite that, my new faerie story is coming along very well. I’m maybe 80% done with the main part of the story, I think. That’s not to say there isn’t a lot of work left. Here’s what I think I have to finish up:
So yeah, there’s a lot left. 80% done with the main story doesn’t mean the work is almost completed. The editing and revising process for me is almost as time consuming as the writing. Sometimes even more. Add to that, I have plans right now to include a basic map of this new world, and I have to create that map as well. Lots of work to do!
The local team is back in the World Series! Woo Hoo! I was not a huge Royals fan before moving up here, but once you live in a city you kind of feel a need to root for the local team at least a little. And then you get caught up in the excitement of everyone else, too. And then to top that off, it had been so long since they went until last year, and last year they weren’t able to complete the task. It all adds up to a lot excitement!
Way to go Royals!
Undertale is a really cool game that we were introduced to by my brother-in-law. We spent hours and hours the past couple of weeks just… well, basically watching him play this. Amazingly, this game is as fun to watch as it is to play. Especially if you grew up with NES and
The whole game kind of keeps references to your character’s gender completely neutral, which was interesting. You don’t choose to play as a girl or boy, you just name the character and begin. Plus, the character is neutral in design, so you don’t wind up with a male character named Allison, or whatever, so that’s really good. The programmers went out of their way to do this, and it shows and it is very pleasant.
And not to be a spoiler, but there are many characters here who are quite possibly bi or gay. The really cool part about that is that it’s not even talked about, it just is part of the story and comes across as completely natural and normal. Such a rare thing when it comes to relationships in games.
I’m not going to spend a lot of time telling you the story or ruining the game for anyone, but there are a lot of fun little secrets and puns in here, and the whole game is just wacky. I recommend everyone give it a try, it’s definitely worth it. And very long, amazingly, though it never drags and time flies as your playing, so you just end up getting a great value when you buy it.
I give it a 4.5 Temmie’s
