[writing] Publication update  
I hate Michigan. I turned on the heat Saturday, which is way too early to need heat. It's only October. (Though last year I turned it on October 1, so at least I made it a few more days.) Only one last winter here, thankfully.

I'm not here to complain about the cold, though! I'm here with a publications update.

My reviews of The Vampire Diaries are going up regularly, even though I don't link to them here each week. Here's the set so far:

+ Gossip Girl Gets Fangs? The Successes and Failures of The Vampire Diaries 1.01 "Pilot"
+ Harbingers of Doom are Super Romantic: Themes of The Vampire Diaries 1.02 "The Night of the Comet"
+ Pun Already Provided: The Vampire Diaries 1.03 "Friday Night Bites"
+ Sometimes Vampires Burn in the Sun. Sometimes They Don't. The Vampire Diaries 1.04 "Family Ties"
+ Never Ages? Bites Girls? Drains Blood? What Are You Again? The Vampire Diaries 1.05 "You're Undead to Me"

I'm really having fun with this show, which surprised me. It's making me think about pacing and storytelling a lot, and at times it's just plain fun.

Finally, I've been adding Halloween icons. Yay Halloween! I bought caramel apple suckers earlier when I went to pick up more tissues. I've been watching horror movies like crazy. Halloween episodes on some of my favorite shows will soon air. I think we're going haunted housing this weekend.
Current Mood: sicksneezy

Rendered just for you, the third in the Ballrooms and Brimstone series. The second got lost in render hell so I need to redo it.

NICE! Oh, I love it so much, and I can't wait to see the second one. Damn you, render hell! Damn you to -- wait. That's not going to work.

I love how close they are as a family, and how tiny the daughter is in this scene. Sneaking into the woods with her parents must make such an impression on her.

Hey, what's your current email address? I have something to send you.

Thanks so much :) I'll be working on the second one, as well as more of the series today, should have a post in the next couple. Probably going to stick it at renderosity as well. I'm keeping my Artzone open, but it's a freaky little bastard about some of my art so I need a back up.

Oh the email is black.pearl_dreams@yahoo.com because I never got over my Barbossa obsession.

I wondered why you switched to renderosity. Makes sense to want a backup! I'm looking forward to seeing more of this series!

I sent you an email. Let me know if you don't get it.
