Forty Fat and Fabulous

Last Christmas, my husband and I happened upon a new store in the St. Louis Galleria called Altar’d State. I’d never heard of the brand before, but the exterior was cheerful and inviting, so it drew us in. Altar’d State is a beautifully decorated store with plants, chandeliers, and inspirational quotes on the walls. Think […]

Sometimes you meet a makeup artist that is so beautiful, skin so flawless, eyes so clear, that you’re fairly certain she’s landed on the wrong side of the camera. This is what happened when I was set to get glam for The Critics Association panel for Suits, and in walked Kayleen McAdams – celebrity makeup […]

“If someone were to ask me the scent of my father, I would say my dad smells of juniper and sawdust. My earliest memories of him are flooded with the sound of a table saw and tiny bits of wood fluttering about him like golden powder. It is a sound and smell that takes me back to the safest and simplest of times.
Sea spray and the rocking motion of a center-consul, flat-bottom boat also conjure up the essence of my father.
He is an old salt.
The sea runs through his veins as it does mine. My mother jokes I was most likely conceived on a sailboat in the river’s tide…”

BOOK EXCERPT & GIVEAWAY |

SYNOPSIS: Magic. Sailing. A murderer among heroes.

Gravedigger Volke Savan wants nothing more than to be like his hero, the legendary magical swashbuckler, Gregory Ruma. First he needs to become an arcanist, someone capable of wielding magic, which requires bonding with a mythical creature. And he’ll take anything—a pegasus, a griffin, a ravenous hydra—maybe even a leviathan, like Ruma.

So when Volke stumbles across a knightmare, a creature made of shadow and terror, he has no reservations. But the knightmare knows a terrible secret: Ruma is a murderer out to spread corrupted magic throughout their island nation. He’s already killed a population of phoenixes and he intends to kill even more. In order to protect his home, his adopted sister, and the girl he admires from afar, Volke will need to confront his hero, the Master Arcanist Gregory Ruma.

A fast-paced flintlock fantasy for those who enjoy How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida
Cowell, Unsouled (Cradle Series) by Will Wight, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan.

Just because you woke up to a new release from Bruce Springsteen, an album from Madonna, a retrospective set from Cheryl “Got To Be Real” Lynn, and a live recording from Stan Getz, doesn’t mean you have entered into some sort of Frank Zappa zodiac 80’s mind-warp. No, It […]
