Tumblr post: Anticipation

duncandahusky:

The latest book I’ve started has a brief scene and then is told in flashback leading back up to that scene. It’s good so far, and all I can think is, “Don’t fuck this up. Don’t fuck this up…”

Also, I would rather be home reading it than at work right now…

To follow up on this, the author didn’t fuck it up, thank heavens. The book was Wake Me Up Inside by Cardeno C. Despite the dreadful Evanescence-inspired title, it’s well-written and enjoyable. I’d give it a 4 out of 5.

In Light of the End

Ah, my first finished piece since graduation (I’m kind of ashamed this is the only thing I’ve completed since graduating…errrk….) This is a commission for Nightwoof.

Feels really nice to post something that is ‘up-to-date.’ It’s been so long. Four years, in fact. I think it shows. 🙂

I know nothing about Fallout, but the technique and detail in this piece are simply wonderful!

I really want more werewolf/non-werewolf couples where it’s less “I’m an alpha and you are my mate and WE ARE INTENSE” and more

Werewolf: Omg you’re my PERSON! You’re my person and I love you and you’re so COOL and *Wags tail with happy happy fervor*

Non-Werewolf: You are so fluffy and silly. *Hugs*

Every month. Like all the non-weres in the pack get together and go “Ah yes. Our dorky partners.” because occasionally they all just need a moment to laugh at the fact that they are basically loved by a bunch of GIANT ENTHUSIASTIC PUPPIES.

(Werepack cuddle piles are the best.)

One of the things Patricia Briggs did really well in her Mercy Thompson series – cuddle piles helped pack bonding among werewolves and was as much a part of pack life as dominance displays. 

I would read the hell out of books like this!

Tumblr post: And while I’m chattering on about reading…

Have you ever read a scene in a book that was so powerfully emotional and vivid that you can still see and feel it clearly even months after finishing the book?  For me, it’s in Amy Lane’s Keeping Promise Rock. The reviews on Goodreads are interesting – many low-to-middling ratings by people who say it’s “too angsty” (these are offset by more reviews raving about it, which makes me glad because that was how I found the book!). I don’t know if I’m approaching it differently, or if I can visualize the characters and their situations more, or maybe it’s just that others are just looking for a light and fluffy read, which this definitely is not.

I can’t really go into the details of the scene due to spoilers, but for those who have read the book it is the one with Deacon in the storm with Crick’s horse. It really sticks with me and I don’t know why, but I’m glad that I read it and that it could invoke that depth of feeling. I guess the book is going into my to-reread pile!
