It’s my first time reading something from Jaimie Roberts and I did ask myself, “why only now?”. Sometimes, we miss all the pretties and it’s been an honor and a lot of pleasure working with this one of a kind amazing lady.

Check out some of my illustrations for her latest book–Scars. It’s twisted, dark and sexy! Continue reading

I admit, I’m not a huge fan of the paranormal genre…but I do have a few of my faves on the list.  I’m so glad to be able to add one more author for keeps. I recently had the opportunity to read Saving Evangeline by Nancee Cain. It was her debut novel and I must say, AWESOME JOB! She’s now on my radar for a must watch author.

So as I was saying…the author slayed it with a beautiful writing flow, an amazing story line, and characters to fall in love with.  I loved the journey of these two souls who are both lost and trying to find themselves. They learn the meaning of life together; they learn how to live it; and they both learn how to love. Remiel and Evangeline are two special characters that will make you cry, smile, laugh and hope.

Check out these teasers… Continue reading

Illustrated Temptations: Poughkeepsie Begins by Debra Anastasia

“You will never be alone! We’re together. Do you understand?.”Beckett

How could you not love Beckett? Cole? and Blake? These three have always been on the list of my favorite book boyfriends. They made a comeback after the happily ever after on Saving Poughkeepsie. It’s not a continuation though. It’s a rewind from the start, when the bromance blossoms between the three. I had a love-hate moment reading Poughkeepsie Begins. There were so many heart wrenching scenes that I truly cannot imagine happening to these young boys. But everything that they went through really defines and molds the strong foundation of their brotherhood.

Debra will always be on my top favorite authors.

Check out some of my favorite scenes…

Good heroines…

A few weeks ago I shared with you some quotes about books and fictional characters that I like very much. Today I want to show you some quotes about book heroines, that I find very interesting. I believe they are useful both to writers and readers. To me, a good heroine has to be inspiring. I want to learn something from her, to look up to her.
