Slush Brain Holiday

Embrace the Debauchery on 16 December 2016

We’re giving away stuff all in the name of…we really don’t know why we’re doing it. If you love Science Fiction, Fantasy, all things nerdy, and well…booze, join us for this one day on board the HMS Slush Brain!

It’s MLK Day! – 2016

Please do not copy this image. Click here to visit Pinterest and share, share, share.

It’s not so much the man I admire as it is what he stood for. History has proven, time and again that heroes and the ones placed high on pedestals are often the ones to fall hard from their elevated status, in one way or another. I’m sometimes saddened by how people’s opinions and, even, their actions are so wrapped around the perceived character of a public figure. I, however, choose to follow ideals and principles that matter to me and don’t put all my hopes in the character of another.

Veering away from that tangent, I’d like to praise MLK for the symbol of peace and equality he is. Though we have come a long way, we still have so much further to go. Thanks to people like MLK we now live in a world where people have to think twice about how they treat others different from themselves. My hope is that one day no one will have to think about their actions because everyone will finally embrace the ideals of equality at their very core- perhaps people will be born colorblind and have an appreciation for humanity never before experienced in history.

Like MLK before me, I have a dream and hope that one day, World Harmony, will become a reality.

Merry Christmas 2015

Xmas2015

I know not everyone celebrates Christmas. I also know that many who do celebrate it aren’t Christians.

I am a Christian and I celebrate Christmas.

Whether you are or aren’t, whether you do or don’t…

 I wish everyone good health, peace of mind, and joy on this day, and all days, throughout the year.

Greetings anyone tuning in today. This is going to be short, as I have been too busy to put much effort into this post, but simply couldn’t bring myself to miss an IWSG post.

1. I’m gearing up for the second leg of my book tour extravaganza. This mini tour will feature a quiz I put together about Love Triangles according to my book, It’s Like the Full Moon. Anyone interested is welcome to try it early, but please share it if you do.


2. This may be the last month of my blog hop adventure depending on the response I get when I reach out to the handful of participants I have so far. I’ve really enjoyed this and hope some of them will continue the journey with me into the new year. Please check out the BooktagsBlogHop, if you’re interested.

3. I’m hoping this holiday season will bring on some much-needed rest, but it’s not likely. In any case, I am looking forward to spending time with family and celebrating Christmas, just because I can.

Got any big plans for the holiday, whichever it may be?
Gonna give my blog hop a try?
Who were you in my love triangle quiz?
