LOOK IN MY DEFENCE!!!!

… people said they wanted a snippet?

They let you in for this. It’s their fault, really, if you think about it.

I don’t know what I expected

What doesn’t kill you leaves you totes ready to read the next book, that’s my motto!

Gavriel & Jared hitting it off (The Lynburn Legacy /The Coldest Girl in Coldtown crossover)
Yay! I finally did it! I wanted to do this one because I knew it would be super fun, and it definitely was!  It is a pretty crazy crossover, they make a weird but very sexy couple. 
Thanks to letmedrawsomething for letting me do the counter art but sadly I couldn´t come up with any good dialog for this two…:(

A sorcerer. A vampire. A crossover. IT IS FATE. (And super cute.)

"Doves had appeared from somewhere - Beauty believed that the furniture had kidnapped them somehow." is by far the greatest line in any fairy tale retelling I have ever read.  And I own an entire bookcase of retold fairy tales.

I feel this is an excellent clue to ‘How Sarah’s Uh, Retellings, Are, Um, Idiosyncratic.’ ;)

And an excellent compliment: I am so happy that some people like my strange ways.

Endless list | of favourite YA characters → Kami Glass (The Lynburn Legacy)

People don’t talk much about that sort of thing around here. And they would never write it down. Someone had told her that once. Everyone in this town was hiding things, so nobody knew enough, and everyone was scared.  Kami was not going to be part of that.


What a cute picture and what a lovely lovely quote for my reporter girl. :)

WOMEN WRITERS

Readers, look through your minds’ eyes
Imagine a glittering literary prize
Further imagine, if you please
On hard chairs, five nominees
Ladies sitting all in a row
Dude nominated is a no-show
What a shock—the dude has won!
Murmur to a friend: ‘Well, THIS is fun.’
Or picture what might have been
A lady’s won! Now there’s a scene.
Extra, extra, have you heard the news?
She has a prize! And she has boobs!
Every paper harps upon it
You’d think we were still wearing bonnets
See the amazement on my face
It’s like a potato won a race
George Eliot and James Tiptree
Not that different, you may see
From J.K. Rowling and E.L James
Don’t tell me there’s nothing in names
Lists of actual bestsellers I have hated, 
Eight men to two women-we sure dominated.
Online lists of ‘bestsellers’ to be decried
Eight to two again—on the other side.
Here’s another tale to tell
Six writers, doing very well
What kind of cash could they expect
To help promote their next?
It’s the truth: I wouldn’t fudge it.
All three gents got thrice the budget
The game’s fixed—and if you prevail
Then you’ll hear rather a strange tale
'My books sell well—I hoped they would
And some say they’re rather good…’
'Dear lady, you're a dark aberration
Sit down, you’re causing a sensation.’
See critics start to rip and slash
'Popular yes, but the book is trash.'
Hear the voices rise to a shout
She wrote it, but look what she wrote about!’
And if our novels at times seem cursed
For ourselves… it’s rather worse
At a festival or bookstore show
Let me tell you how these things go:
Either ‘ladies always make you wait, am I right?’
Or ‘No lipstick? Good lord, she looks a fright!’
'Did she just dare to EAT a SANDWICH?’
'Christ fuck, she's using vulgar language!'
Older lady—‘How dare that hag offend our eyes?’
Older dude—‘Heavens, he seems so wise!’
Guy jokes—‘He’s so deep, as well as witty!’
Girl jokes—‘God, she must think she's pretty!'
Some ladies I love with love holy and whole
Some ladies I hate with all of my soul
Seeing any ladies torn down my soul itches
To cry ‘Now, gods, stand up for bitches!’
Soon you will hear the world’s demands.
'Sit in this chair and fold your hands'
'Dress nice: be quieter if you will'
Answer: ‘No, I will not be still!’
I will not do what I am told
I will not let men take the gold
For doing half what women do
And saying we should be grateful, too
We must set our daughters free
When concerned folks say to me:
'Think of the children!' Girl, I do.
Change the times and the Times list too.

“Being able to depend on someone doesn’t mean you’re dependent on them.”

Awww. This was an important quote to me (because people are down on romance sometimes because codependency so terrible! only total independence means strength! and codependency ain’t great, but the people I love keep me strong) so I am glad to see it liked!
Plus, shoe matching font game is strong.
