Updates: Scissorhands Was Here
Kel Wednesday, April 15, 2015I made a BIG change this week. After essentially five years of growing my hair out, this past Saturday, I cut it. (By which I mean, unlike that time in Spain with the mini-scissors and the mini-mirror, I was smart and let a professional do it.) I feel like I should hold up a sign: "Edward Scissorhands was here."
That's about 17.5" of hair I'm holding from end to end, and it's on its way to Locks of Love. I'm still getting used to the new length (which doesn't work well with my favorite clip), but it makes hair care much faster.
I'm also close to finishing my business cards for BEA. I have a bunch of designs prepped. Now I just have to choose one or two and order them. I haven't really done business cards since that Pub Layout & Design class several years ago, so I may send out some emails asking for opinions. Because y'all are smart cookies. :)
I finished two eARC's this week! Siren's Fury didn't grab me as much as Storm Siren, but it's still compelling, and that cover art! I decided to read the crime family story next when I realized how soon it was scheduled for review. Heads up: Hold Me Like a Breath is more a coming-of-age, romance story than a crime family saga. If you're currently anticipating lots of shady deals and back alley shootouts, I suggest adjusting your expectations or you'll probably be disappointed.
The Dragons of Dorcastle and Seriously Wicked are up next since their archive dates are fast approaching. Poor Rebel Mechanics will have to wait a bit longer; it doesn't come out until July, so we have time. :)
That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Omega City by Diana Peterfreund! In which a group of kids investigate conspiracy theories and secret Cold War cities. :)
