Sketch Ideas

I thought it would be easier to create a new post for this, but these are my ideas for having a sketch made for my Kindle Box Set cover. After spending a couple of hours looking, I think I'll have to have someone draw up an image. Here are some images that I thought I might use as examples. (I gave them numbers to simplify discussion.)

 

#1  What I would really want (except with white roses):

 

Some sample sketches:

#2

 

#3

 

#4

 

#5  This one would also need simpler white roses:

 

#6  Another illuminated manuscript, maybe I could have someone draw something from these roses:

 

Any thoughts on these? I was also considering requesting large white roses with a few small red roses too. I mean, if I am having something custom made anyway.....

 

Thanks again! You guys are an awesome author support team!

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW, & #GIVEAWAY - Losing You by Gen Ryan
Losing You: Trade Me - Hot Tree Editing,Soxsational Cover Art,Gen Ryan
Losing You is the sweet and hot story of Brad and Colton. Both of them have suffered in the past in various ways that can still have an effect, even if you think one way is worse than the other. They meet by chance, although there might be a hand of fate (sisters) involved. The sparks between these two are instantaneous, but they both have issues to deal with.
 
There is a little bit of everything in this book, which makes it a delight to read. There is love, danger, friendship, and betrayal, to name just a few. Losing You is well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and would love to read more by this author, and in the Trade Me series. Definitely recommended by me.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

January 2017 Reviews

 

Most of my January reviews never ended up on Booklikes because I skipped out on the site for a while out of frustration. Thankfully, BL seems to be back to normal (and will continue to work well, I hope).

 

The most enjoyable stuff I read was probably:

 

- Mayday by Chris Strange - I loved the Maydays (aka kaiju) and ended up enjoying this despite the overly violent and misogynistic main character.

 

- Azumanga Daioh Omnibus - A reread. The final volume in the omnibus adds emotional depth to the series' general ridiculousness and still has the power to give me warm fuzzies.

 

- The Ancient Magus' Bride, vol. 1 - This shows a lot of promise so far.

 

TV watching went even better:

 

- Big Windup! - A rewatch. Although I don't like sports, I am often drawn to sports anime. Go figure. This is one of my top favorite sports anime of all time, and it boggles my mind that it didn't earn Funimation great gobs of money.

 

- Big Windup! 2 - I'm so glad Nozomi Entertainment licensed the rest of this series. I didn't think it was as good as the first season, but it was still fun, and it addressed one of the weaknesses of the first season in a way that had me wishing there were a third season or that the manga was available in English.

 

My favorite covers of the month:

 

The Second Mango - Shira Glassman 

 

Although I'm happy for the author that she got her rights back from Torquere and was able to self-publish this, I have to admit that I prefer Torquere's cover (pictured here) to the cover the author used in her rerelease. That said, I think the new covers for the rest of the series are way better than Torquere's.

 

Mayday: A Kaiju Thriller - Chris Strange 

 

This cover is one of the things that prompted me to give Mayday a closer look.

 

Rocket Raccoon Volume 1: A Chasing Tale - Skottie Young 

 

I love how gleeful Rocket looks.

short, sweet and sexy!
Found You: Trade Me - Dahlia Donovan,Soxsational Cover Art,Hot Tree Editing
I was gifted a copy of this book, direct from the author.
 
Kent ran to the Florida Keys after his divorce. Finding your husband in your bed with someone will break anyone's heart. Kent never expected Florida to have such a lovely view. He also didn't know that view came with a 5 am wake up call and dogs! Dusk's vet clinic suffered badly at the hands of Mother Nature and he is doing odd jobs to raise funds to fix it up again. Offering to help Kent fix his house seemed like such a good idea!
 
OH!! I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Ms Donovan does short and sweet so well!
 
102 (according to Amazon) pages of drama, wit, love, tension, and conflict. With just the right amount of history of both men, of the now, of the build up, and oh of the steam! ;-) We get both men, their feelings, thoughts and actions.
 
And we get just enough! I can't stress this point enough, I really can't. Some short stories just don't have enough of anything to hold it all together, but Donovan crams the right amount of everything in and it's just perfect!
 
This is the first book I've read of Donovan's that is based solely in, and with characters from, the States. I was worried her humour that shines in the other books wasn't going to shine here. I need not have worried. The witty one liners and colourful language is all here and that made me a very happie bunnie!
 
Kent and Dusk are so well suited to each other, and that comes across right from the start. I loved the subtle signs from them both, loved how Donovan pulled them in.
 
short, sweet and sexy.
 
5 stars
