After the death of his mother, Devin Maxwell joins Titan Force, an organization that collects supernatural artifacts using super powered agents. Devin quickly rises to become a brash, yet successful agent under the field name: Streetslam. He forms a pseudo family with his friends and fellow agents at Titan Force.
Devin’s allegiances are put to the test after an enigmatic billionaire offers him the chance to revive his mother, but only if he turns on his new family and steals a mysterious item from the Titan Force vault.
Super Excited To Announce My First Book’s Release!
The Corpse Garden is a collection of fourteen of my short stories, including four, previously unreleased tales! In addition to the new tales, NoSleep and Tumblr favorites, such as The Murder In My Backyard and I Buried My Fiance On Our Wedding Day, also make up part of the garden.
If you guys are interested in purchasing a copy, it’s available for Amazon devices here.
Obviously I will continue to post new stories on both here and NoSleep, but the four unreleased stories are book-only!
Thank you for all of your support! I appreciate you all!
I’ve been so busy these last few months, that I think I completely forgot to post about this brand new thing I did and finished in the summer.
A new book with Comme des Géants, story written by Céline Claire, “L’Abri”.
This won’t be out until next year, but I will keep you guys updated when it’s out! All the illustrations were done with ink and watercolor. Super exciting challenge, as I have in the past colored all my books digitally. But I think I’ve found a new technique I love too much and moving forward, will be doing all my illustrations with watercolor!
Does anyone else have the problem where you want to start a book, which was bought months ago, yet you’re terrified you’re not in the right mindset or stage of life to start it? I’m a firm believer that books come into your life when you need them most…but does that work when there’s so many other books on my shelves and my kindle that are waiting the same treatment?
I picked St Albans almost arbitrarily to set the new book in, but after my reccy there on Saturday, I’m thrilled to be writing about such a lovely city! My notes are about as good as they’re going to be, and I have a solid timeline, so it was about time to start actually writing lol. And at 2.5K words, the first draft of Chapter One is complete!! Quite a way to go yet, but it’s always starting from nothing that’s the hardest!
SUMMARY: Whatever you’ve heard about Caraval, it doesn’t compare to the reality. It’s more than just a game or a performance. It’s the closest you’ll ever find to magic in this world …
Welcome, welcome to Caraval―Stephanie Garber’s sweeping tale of two sisters who escape their ruthless father when they enter the dangerous intrigue of a legendary game.
Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over. But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner. Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.
REVIEW: Caraval has been the most beautifully written, most enchanting, super magical story I have read thus far.. It quickly became my favorite fantasy novel.
We meet Scarlett and Tella, sisters who grow up with an abusive father, and they want nothing more then to move far away from their father and their home island of Trisda.. Meanwhile on the ‘Isla de los Sueños’ (Island of Dreams), something magical is about to start. Caraval, “.. it doesn’t compare to the reality. It’s more than just a game or a performance. It’s the closest you’ll ever find to magic in this world.” Page 19. Scarlett’s biggest desire is to someday be able to attend Caraval.. after a turn several letters sent over the years, Scarlett finally gets a letter from Legend, the leader of the greatest greatest performance there ever was, with an invitation to Caraval. With this invitation they begin their greatest journey of all.. but everything comes with a price.
Caraval is not all that it seems, magical.. yes, beautiful.. absolutely, full of secrets and lies.. can it be any other way?
The romance is a subtle romance, but you find yourself rooting for the two characters involved in this romance.. we meet super interesting characters who I can’t wait to know more in the next novels.. (I can’t believe I have to wait over a year for the next one).. I will have to read Caraval,, a million more times until the next one releases! If you haven’t already added it to your wishlist and TBR list I highly recommend you do, It’s a wonderful read and I couldn’t believe it ended.. I would have loved to read more and more of it.. and hey, let’s all rate it what it deserves so it can become a movie someday!! ❤️Ellie RG
