Many thanks to Dirk Greyson for donating an ebook copy of his forthcoming paranormal m/m thriller, Challenge the Darkness, for a lucky commenter to win! Challenge the Darkness will be released by Dreamspinner Press on August 31.

When alpha shifter Mikael Volokov is called to witness a challenge, he learns the evil and power-hungry Anton Gregor will stop at nothing to attain victory. Knowing he will need alliances to keep his pack together, Mikael requests a congress with the nearby Evergreen pack and meets Denton Arguson, Evergreen alpha, to ask for his help. Fate has a strange twist for both of them, though, and Mikael and Denton soon realize they’re destined mates.

Denton resists the pull between them – he has his own pack and his own responsibilities. But Mikael isn’t willing to give up. The Mother has promised Mikael his mate, told him he must fight for him, and that only together can they defeat the coming darkness. When Anton casts his sights on Denton’s pack, attacks and sabotage follow, pulling Denton and Mikael together to defeat a common enemy. But Anton’s threats sow seeds of destruction enough to break any bond, and the mates. determination to challenge the darkness may be their only saving grace.

Make art journal pages, not Misadventures

No Misadventures today because art journaling yesterday instead. :)

All pages posted from my “Art as Journal” class journal.

These are marker and colored pencil.

The color wheels are from a Kaleidoscopia coloring book, colored in with colored pencils by me. The other writing is unusual words for colors (using gel pen).

The last page and inner back cover.

The assignment for this page was “Connections”. Sharpie and watercolor, with some washi tape in the margins.

The inner back cover. The top picture is ballpoint pen doodles of my name. The bottom is some stamped books and colored pencil. Quotes are strewn hither and thither. :)

And here’s the outer back cover. Very random! The quote on the tiny page of (stamped) paper says, “Everything in this book may be wrong.” (Richard Bach, from Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah)

Reading Update
The Annihilation Score (Laundry Files #6) by Charles Stross. A very good addition to the series, this book was from Mo’s perspective (instead of Bob’s) as her life changes direction abruptly – possibly more than once even. Life is unpredictable when you wield a possessed violin made from human bone… I can’t help but notice that many of the lower ratings on Goodreads are from men and have to wonder a bit about that, what with this book having a strong female protagonist. :/

Reading Update
Artists’ Journals and Sketchbooks: Exploring and Creating Personal Pages by Lynne Perrella. Very good idea book/peek into the art journals of a number of artists. What’s particularly interesting about this book is it was published in 2004 – apparently the term “art journal” was just gaining traction.
Drawing from Life: The Journal as Art by Jennifer New. Very good look into the journals of 31 people whose journals fuel their creativity and work. Many of the contributors aren’t artists per se – an engineer, a volcanologist, a gardener, travelers – but all the journal excerpts are highly individual and artistic. Also, the book’s graph-paper themed pages give the impression that the book itself is a journal.
