A Review of Blood Immoral by Astrid Cooper

Blood Immoral by Astrid Cooper

There comes a point in a story where something is revealed about a character which matters. Whether that is their beliefs, expectations, or simply the humanity inside of themselves that they aren’t supposed to have, it matters. Telling that story, explaining not just they why but the what comes next matters. It’s very difficult to …

A Review of Nocturne by Megan J. Parker

Nocturne by Megan J. Parker

There is such a thing as history in characters. There’s meaning to who they are now, who they were, and, with some luck, who they would be eventually. Telling the history of a character is important because without understanding that, what happens to them can be, at time, confusing. Hinting at the past in a …

Yet another so-called Red Hot Devil Costume that isn’t

Red Hot Devil Costume

Another shiny devil costume that simply doesn’t live up to its name I think. That’s not to say that it isn’t trying or the model isn’t doing her best in trying to make it look attractive… It’s simply that it just has too much tacky to manage that by far. This is called the Red Hot …
