Impromptu Hiatus, Whoops!

I know this keeps happening, but I'm sorry!

Between having a full time job and a full time business, it's really tough to keep up. I am trying though!

As far as the business goes, I'm less busy this weekend than I usually am, so I'm taking that time to get ahead on orders. So I'll be able hopefully get back to reading, because I'm behind. As always.

Also on the agenda is ALAAC in NOLA! Omg I'm so excited! Is anyone else going? My sister and I are going together, and I cannot wait. If you're going let me know and we will probably run into each other. I know Tracy from Cornerfolds (aka my business partner) is going. And I've heard Amber from DuLivre is also going, so maybe I will see you there too!

Other news on the horizon...

My friend Erin in Houston is moving and couldn't take her cat with her. She looked for weeks for a home for him and couldn't find one. The shelters are all still full from Hurricane Harvey, plus it's kitten season. And so, because my heart was breaking, I offered to take Kaz from her. I'm picking him up at the airport tomorrow.

I cannot keep him, as my cats are all declawed (I don't want to hear the "don't declaw your cats" argument. I agree with you people. But declawed cats still need homes and I adopted them declawed, so leave it.), and Kaz is not. It wouldn't be fair to them, as if they got in a fight they couldn't defend themselves. But I have multiple homes lined up for him.

I think thats pretty much it for what's going on! I'm gonna try to get back to things on here.

Review: Furyborn

Title: Furyborn
Author: Claire Legrand
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Release Date: May 22, 2018

When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed...unless the trials kill her first.

A thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a mere fairy tale to bounty hunter Eliana Ferracora. When the Undying Empire conquered her kingdom, she embraced violence to keep her family alive. Now, she believes herself untouchable--until her mother vanishes without a trace, along with countless other women in their city. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain on a dangerous mission and discovers that the evil at the heart of the empire is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world--and of each other.
