International Authors' Day Celebration
A look Into One of My Favourite Authors

Cover Reveal! Project Us by Ottilie Weber

Rachel is used to being in control of her emotions, never letting anyone get close to the real her. Nick is exactly the kind of guy Rachel has been trying to avoid getting involved with. Yet, when their school arranges a mysterious project that puts them together, they soon become trapped in a marriage that turns out to be real and legally binding, and they aren’t the only ones.

While their parents try to get four hundred students out of these marriages with legal help, the teenagers must live in a compound with their respective spouses for the duration of the project. Being trapped together leaves no room for denials. As Nick begins to fall for Rachel, she does everything in her power to avoid his charms and protect her heart. All she wants is to get out of the marriage, but does she truly want out, or is she only lying to herself?


Release date: August 7, 2015

My Recovery

The pink paper is proof :)
Today I passed my Military fitness test. For some this is a normal annual thing, and not a big deal. But for me in December 2013 I had a minor surgery that resulted it internal bleeding and was rushed in for emergency abdominal surgery. My recovering was long; I lost almost all my core and hip strength. As someone who never before that day, never even had a single stitch, it’s been a long year and a half. Today, for me, was a big deal.

As my military friends know, the new force test is almost all core, and I’ve been terrified that I would not be able to life the require weight, or hut myself trying.

In my 9 years, I never failed a fitness test; never fear it. My fear was just as much of a mental hurdle as it was physical. I've always been an active person, even as a child, I was never afraid to push myself or turn down a change to play. Starting from zero was hard, and going slow was even harder.

But today, all that work has paid off. I didn’t falter, I took my time, I felt no pain, and after the test, I felt great.

I'm back to 100%, I still have minor pain, so I’m more like 98.9%, but that’s something that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I can live with that. I passed, the fear of never being what I was, is gone. To my family, my friends, the doctors, the nurses, and my physio, thank you, you got me through this trail, and thank you for telling me over and over, that I will get there, that I will be me again.

For all of you that have had major surgery, I know that the road to recovery is long and terrifying. You mustn’t give up. It will take time, hard work, and at times you’ll need a shoulder to cry on. That’s okay; I’ve had a few power cries myself. I started crying while writing this. I know I’ll never be the same, but I’m close to what I was, juts a step under, and I’m okay with that.

I feel great, I’m happy, and for once I don’t feel like I’m suffocating. Your recovering is for you, not for others. If they don't understand then you don’t need that poison in your life. Listen to your doctors and physio; believe it or not, they do have your best interest at heart.  

Happy Weekend

The cover for GLASS SWORD, the sequel to Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, is here!

Amazon accused of 'Big Brother' tactics over customer reviews

"Author Jas Ward has launched change.org petition after it emerged that the retail giant is monitoring social networks to screen would-be reviewers."


What the hell Amazon? I opened up my news feed and this is what pops out at me. Not impressed with you right now. It’s bad enough that I have to make sure I don't use obscene words in my reviews, (I had one review I had to revise three times just to find out what bad word I used. To this day I still don’t know, because I didn’t use any!). But now you’re  telling me who and what I can't review because I might be "friends" with the author/seller, through social media?

Of all damn things to look at. Social Media is a big part of advertising, and connecting with fans. Taylor Swift has master this. In saying that, all the fans she has connect with can no longer review her works because they're now, according to Amazon, are “friends?”. The hell, really?
I don't know about you, but for me, and who I call a friend, is none of Amazon's business. Not only that, but how the hell can Amazon tell if you're truly "friends" and not simply acquaintances, or business associates? I mean, if I tag an author on Twitter or Facebook, that links back to my review, does that make us "friends."? No, that’s like saying, oh I saw George Clooney in the airport, we didn’t talk face to face, but I twitted about it, we’re like totally best friend now.

I’m not a biases person, unless it’s about family (because they’re awesome), and no-one in my family is a published author; nor do they sell things online. (I could be wrong about the selling part, because my family is huge.)  
Every fan wants to connect, show support and follow what the author is doing. Fans what to be the first to know when a new book is being release, a cover reveal, or grabbing an interview for their blog. Now, that brings up the question, if you interview an author, are you now considered their "friend" in Amazon's eyes? Or, when you receive a book for free, for your honest review, from the author, will amazon forbid you from posting a review because you had directed contact? I want to scream right now.

A petition has started.
"The policy has prompted allegations of “Big Brother” activity and sparked a petition calling on Amazon toreverse the decision, organised by US romance author Jas Ward, which is heading towards 11,000 signatures as of Thursday morning. Ward has penned an open letter to Amazon on the change.org petition site, writing:"
Amazon, you disappoint me.
What do you think about this? Read the Full article and tell me what you think in the comments below, or tell us if you have been snagged by amazon for this obscene policy.

Review Update! Otomen, Vol. 1

If you're looking for a dose of super cute and feel goods, then this manga is for you.

I'm in deep feels with this manga, and it now graces my ever growing manga collection. I love all the characters, and love that the typical gender "roles" are swapped.

Review Update! The Last Knight (Pendragon, #1)

The Last Knight (Pendragon, #1)The Last Knight (Pendragon #1)
By Nicola S. Dorrington
My rating: ★★★★☆

( I received this book free from the Author In exchange for my honest review )

After reading a slew of books that made my head hurt, this was refreshing. I was captured from the first chapter, no the first sentence. This story drew me in and immersed me into a beautiful, freighting world of legends, knights, honor, and kings. Before I knew it, the tale was over; and I was left with a bitter-sweet ending that left me wanting more.
