One of the characters is loosely based on real-life photographer Anne Brigman, a passionate traveller and artist who was a leading figure in the Photo-Secession Movement in the arts. The real-life photographer was in California later than her fictional counterpart, but the real and fictional women share a common artistic style and pers
  7. Crazy Stupid Bromance Crazy Stupid Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams is $1.99! This is the third book in the Bromance Book Club contemporary romance series.

Alexis Carlisle and her cat café, ToeBeans, have shot to fame after she came forward as a victim of a

  12. A Thousand Beginnings and Endings A Thousand Beginnings and Endings is $1.99! This is a YA anthology that focuses on mythology and folklore. It includes fifteen stories by authors like Julie Kagawa, Roshani Chokshi, and more. What I think is most interesting is that after each story, there is a little note from the author on which folk tales or myths were their inspiration. Star-crossed lovers, meddling immortals, feigned identities, battles of wits, and dire warnings. These are the stuff

Things are puttering along here, though I’ll be flying to Florida over the weekend to visit my parents. It’s been over a year since I last saw them after having to head down there last June for some not great reasons. However, I have my masks and I’m fully vaxxed.
