Some of them want to destroy me, and not in the hot breaking furniture, crashing through walls destruction.

But, can I trust them?

I am the Devil herself, and every Demon in Hell would jump at the chance to rule by my side. Can I open up my dark heart to let in more than just passion and lust while I figure things out? And while I'm at it, what in the Hell is Shax up to?

Check It Out: GenderQueer





GenderQueer: A Story from a Different Closet by Allan D. Hunter 
Gender Studies Fiction

Derek is a girl. He wasn't one of the boys as a kid; he admired, befriended, and socialized with the girls and always knew he was one of them, despite being male. That wasn't always accepted or understood, but he didn't care: he knew who he was.

Now he's a teenager and boys and girls are flirting and dating and his identity has become a lot more complicated: he's attracted to the girls. The other girls. The female ones.

This is Derek's story, the story of a different kind of male hero — a genderqueer person's tale.

Review: In My Attic





In My Attic by Lina Hansen
A Magical Misfits Mystery Book 1
Cozy Magical Mystery

Sometimes all it takes is murder to discover who you truly are. 

Myrtle Coldron shared her parents’ practical view of the world, so when she was orphaned as a teenager and sent to live with an aunt with more than a few Wiccan leanings, her worlds clashed. Intent on escaping from all things witchy and an aunt with a decided idea of who should be given her magical lineage, Myrtle settles herself in academia, far from the small medieval village of Avebury.

But when she receives a call about her aunt’s mysterious death from a fall from the attic, Myrtle’s carefully constructed world falls apart. Guilt-laden from ignoring her aunt’s pleas for help as simply more of her witchy ramblings, Myrtle returns to Avebury to bury her aunt, sell the Witch’s Retreat—her aunt’s witch- themed inn—and put this part of her life behind her forever.

Yet the sleepy, historic village will not let her be: at turns met by cryptic folks and strange happenings, including threatening notes, footsteps in the attic in the middle of the night, and a plant with a mind—and legs—of its own, Myrtle determines she owes it to her aunt to find out what happened. Distraught and hounded by a selfish cousin, two daft but well-meaning sisters, and two equally handsome—and equally suspicious—boarders, Myrtle soon discovers that taking a practical approach to things otherworldly isn’t the best plan and that denying her lineage—and her powers—may just cost her her life.

Happy Four Years!


WOW! Can you believe it's been four years?

Four years ago, I started this blog as an outlet. In 2013 my life completely changed. In 2016 I was coming to terms with it and needed a project to try and get me out of the funk I'd slipped into. So, I started the blog. I figured I'd maybe have a few friends or a family member or two who would visit it to be nice, and maybe someone would read it. Mostly, it was for me. Then I joined a few Facebook groups and learned about blog tours. So I signed up for a few. The further down the book blogging rabbit hole I went the more this blog started to mean to me. 

It's had a few graphics overhauls over the years. I've added 3 other contributors to the blog, all are dear friends to me. I don't know how they cope with my insanity sometimes. I'm so grateful to have them in my life and on this blog.

I've met some amazing authors through this blog, and have even become friends with a few. I love being able to bond over books and life. 

I'm so grateful to everyone who comes here even once. I'll admit, sometimes I just feel so overwhelmed with life, the universe, and everything. But in the end, the blog is always worth it even when things feel like they're falling apart around me. 

Stay safe, and keep reading!
