Divergent (movie)

Today the family and I went to see the hot new movie Divergent starring Shailene Woodley & Theo James. I first glimpsed Shailene when she starred on The Secret Life of the American Teenager and I think she is a talented rising star.

The movie was…AWESOME!!! It held my interest the entire time – warning, it is 2hrs 20min so be prepared!! The story was actually decent and the ending left me wanting more.

Divergent is about a young girl, Tris (Shailene Woodley) who has to decide where in society she fits in. Which faction she is suited for. After her decision is made, she realizes there is more to the factions than what was being shown/told/believed and it’s up to her and Four (Theo James) to discover the plots before it’s too late. Tris and Four heat up the screen and together they keep you hanging til the end.

Shobou Con 2014

Soooooo today I was at a small local free anime con held at a library. I was there as a vendor just like last year. I have to say, this is one of my fav cons even though it’s small. Why? Because I get to sit and everybody comes by my table so I get to see all the awesome cosplay without the traffic…lol…

My table (FurrVille) did amazing this year!! I was so pleased with the success and the encouraging comments from the cosplayers. They did ask about other items that I did not bring with me – duh – but they took my business card so hopefully that will bring in more business for me…smile…I actually sold out of my hats so that deserves a big WOOT WOOT…lol…

I am hoping to have a table at this con again next year – gotta start sewing and designing more inventory now!!! …lol…

ROFCON Literature Track

I had an absolute BLAST running the Literature Track (http://www.facebook.com/rofconliteraturetrack) this year at a local multi-genre con (www.rofcon.com). We had five authors that helped kick off the con and they were awesome!! It was a pleasure meeting and working with these authors and I can only hope that future cons go just as well :)

Leona Wisoker – http://www.leonawisoker.com – Her science fantasy series, Children of the Desert, is now up to four books, all published though Mercury Retrograde Press; Secrets of the Sands, Guardians of the Desert, Bells of the Kingdom, and Fires of the Desert. Book five (the last in this series) is in progress, as is a followup series. Free samples of these books can be found on Scribd, here, along with samples of other Mercury Retrograde Press books.

Tony Ruggiero – http://www.tonyruggiero.com – Dark Fantasy more your taste? Check out Tony Ruggiero. He is best known for his dark fantasy thrillers about vampires being used by the US military. Ground breaking and fast paced, the novels are a characteristic mixture of the vampire lore and the clandestine secrets of the military. The concept led to a series of books released in 2006 through 2010, labeled the Team of Darkness Declassified Files. The books include: Operation Immortal Servitude, Operation Save the Innocent, Operation Face the Fear, and Operation Endgame.

Jim Bernheimer – http://www.jimbernheimer.com – Enjoy Science Fiction & Fantasy? Jim lives in Chesapeake, Virginia with his wife Kim, and daughters Laura and Marissa. By day, he works as a Systems Administrator on a government installation. Through Gryphonwood Press, he has published four novels and through his own EJB Networking imprint, he has published two novels, a short story collection, and two anthologies.

Blessed (or cursed depending on your point of view) with an overactive imagination, Jim has long been a fan of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Seeking to put that imagination to use, he has started to write his own orginal works in hopes of making his mark on the literary world.

Jim’s literary influences include well known writers such as Robert Heinlein, Edgar Allen Poe, J.R.R Tolkien, and the not so well-known C.T. Westcott.

Jilly Foo (Jill Fredrickson) – http://www.tpcth.thewebcomic.com – Jilly Foo has been making web comics since 2004. Her longest running series are Demon Eater and The Planet Closest to Heaven. Her current updating comic Demon Eater is life story about a weakling demon trying to survive in a dog eat dog world of cannibals. A comedy really. (www.demoneater.com)

She has an educational background in Art Education and Art Therapy. She’s been around the block a few times in the web comic world, so she might be able to give you a few tips on writing, publishing, and art, all while still open to learning new things too. Jilly Foo has also ran the blog and panels of the Giant Origami Challenge in which anime conventioneers attempt to fold really really big origami. Like human sized 6ft+ origami. http://giantorigamichallenge.blogspot.com)

Steve White is best known for the “Starfire” series of novels which he co-authored with David Weber and, more recently, Charles Gannon, including The Shiva Option, which was on the New York Times extended best-seller list. He also has fourteen solo novels published by Baen Books, most recently the “Jason Thanou” series of time travel novels (one of which, Sunset of the Gods, is currently out in mass-market paperback).

One Small Touch

He’s a cop that can see the past.
She’s an author that can taste lies.
One Small Touch may show them what’s happened, but it can’t protect them from what’s ahead.

The last thing Lt. Aaron March expected when he stumbled onto the scene of a fatal car accident was to be entangled in a mystery featuring his favorite author.

The last thing Laurel Wentworth expected when she opened her door to the handsome officer was to fall in love.

Laurel’s faithless husband – and her best friend! – were killed in unusual circumstances. Conflicting evidence at the scene whirl Aaron and Laurel into a world of danger as violence and fear turn their lives upside down.

Can Laurel and Aaron use their unique psychic abilities to solve the mystery of her husband’s death – and find a future together – or will the killer have two more victims?

Daughter of Oreveille

How much will Brianna be forced to sacrifice to protect the life – and the man – she has chosen? She has never been afraid to break the rules, but when she rejects yet another fine young man from a powerful House, she risks more than disapproval: since her father’s death in the jotnar wars, the House of Oreveille has been without a Defender. Her mother’s second husband has neglected his duties, and allowed the estate to fall into decay. Rumors are flying that Oreveille, which has stood on the border between Gaia and the Faeland for thousands of years, may soon fall. Brianna does not intend to repeat her mother’s mistakes, but to save Oreveille she must weigh the fate of her people, and the safety of the Faeland, against the desires of her heart.
