Been quiet on the creative front, but I am working on the cover image for the catgirl calendar, and November is starting in a few days.  I will be writing the sequel to Aurius for NaNoWriMo.  I had never planned for there to be a sequel to it, but Jake’s story simply wasn’t over.

For now, the latest book I read:

Reiffen’s Choice, S. C. Butler – Three children live a peaceful life in a quiet mountaintop manor when two of them, a displaced heir to the thrones of two kingdoms and his friend, are kidnapped and the former whisked off to the stronghold of three great, evil mages.  Paired up with a dwarf and a shape-shifting bear, the other two travel a difficult journey underground to rescue him.

This was a really enjoyable read.  Right from the beginning, the story drew me in, the opening introduction to the world setting an easy pace before the conflict begins.  There was something distinctly classic about the author’s voice, yet he set up a very rich, unique world in this novel.  The whole story is fairly slow-paced, but the tension is ever-present and left me wondering what was going to happen next.  It’s pure escapism and was really a delight to read.  I’m looking forward to reading the second in this trilogy.
