Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag

There's this tag that's been going around, and I find it amusing since I don't talk about what I read nearly as much as I ought, so I thought I'd do it. I stole it from Cait over at the Book Chewers, since she said anyone could.

1. Greed. What's your most inexpensive book? What's your most expensive book?

I'm a cheepstake when it comes to my reading. Most of my kindle collection was free, (Because I've bought maybe 30 books, rounding up, and I have over a thousand on my kindle at the moment.) And much of my physical collection I've picked up at my library's yearly books sales when I can get children's books and paperbacks for a quarter apiece.

So epensive? I don't know, since I didn't buy any of them. I have a few, though, that I suspect were pricey when they were bought, but I wasn't the one who shelled out the cash for them, so I wouldn't know. I do know that I've never spend more that ten bucks on a single book.

2. Wrath. What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Oh ... tough question here. I think I'll go with Piers Anthony. On one hand, I love the puns of his Xanth series, but on the other, he likes to more ... spicy stuff than I like to read. Xanth is his tame series, and even there, it's borderline what I read.

3. Gluttony. What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?

That's a list. I've got a number of books on my shelf that I wander over to whenever I'm bored and just ... read.

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine (because it's a genius retelling of Cinderella)
Chronicles of Narnia (for obvious reasons, and I recently picked up a single volume of the entire series for a dollar)
Lord of the Rings (And my copy is again, single volume, as Tolkien intended)
The Moorchild by Eloise McGraw (I don't know why I love this book so much, but I do. Mebbe it's the accents)
Or Give me Death by Ann Rinaldi (A historical fiction about Patrick Henry's family. It is ... tear-jerking.)
The Claidi Collection by Tanith Lee. (Because epic world building. Also, a single volume, I love single volumes)
Fairy Tale Collections (And I own SEVERAL)
Elsie Dinsmore by Martha Finley (I have the entire series - not single volume, though - plus Mildreth's series)
Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. (Because it's funny, and again, lovely worldbuilding)

And there are more, but I think I shall stop now. Basically, I highly recommend any of these books, and I read them frequently

Wait, I forgot a few:
The Ankulen
Sew, It's a Quest
Do You Take This Quest?
Water Princess, Fire Prince (notebook edition)

Yes, I'm the author, no I have no shame.

 4. Sloth. What book have you neglected due to laziness?

Um, well ... that's a list equally long. Books on my shelf are in one of two states. Either I've read them a million times, or I've barely picked them up. I've spot read at these books, but I've never taken the plunge and actually devoured them. They include:

Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. (I own the whole series except Brisngr, which happens to be the book I've read the most of. I ... uh ... snuck into my mother's closet and read at it while she had it out from the library several years ago.)
After the Twelfth Night by A. G. Werff. (I have it on my shelf. I bought it. I loved the first part when I edited it ... but I just can't seem to pick it up and finish it.)
Only a Novel by Amy Dashwood. (Again, on my shelf, and I loved the first few chapters that I read on Amazon look inside, but I can't seem to finish it!)
Second Son by Janelle Leanne Schmidt. (I won it in a giveaway. I loved the first book in the series. But unfortunately, the book focuses on a character that I was perhaps the least interested in - don't shoot me Brant fans, he's a great guy, but with his secrets and all that in the first book, he and I just didn't form a good relationship.)
Kestrel's Midnight Song by J.R. Parker. (Again, won it in a giveaway, and I love the concept, but I just can't get into it!)
Ben Hur by Lew Wallace. (I recently moved it down from currently reading to to-read on goodreads. I own a really nice copy, but I just can't get any further in the book. Incidently, I'm stuck at the same point in both book and movie)


Again, there are more, terribly good books that are having trouble cracking into me. I've doubt that one day I'll pick them up hit a point in the story, and then I'll be useless the rest of the day, but that just hasn't happened.

5. Pride. What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?

Mostly classics, including David Copperfield, Pride and Prejudiced, and The Lord of the Rings. 

6. Lust. What attributes do you find attractive in male characters?

I require a snappy voice, or brains, or both. He needs to be open and talkative, especially if he's the POV. If he's a POV and is keeping secrets from me ... that's an automatic on my bad list (actually, this is true for any POV character, but we're talking about guys right now). I like some heroics, and if he can save the girl, that's great (though I prefer it if it's a joint effort.) Accents are a must. I melt for accents.

But oddly enough, I don't really find myself attracted to guys in the books I read, not permanently, at least. Unless of course, they happen to be the rightful ruler of the land of sweets and is going to kill a mouse king. Yeah ... have I brought up my undying love for the Nutcracker before?

7. Envy. What book would you most like to receive as a gift?

Last Christmas, I could have answered this one easily. But between Christmas last year, and the fact that I've had money this year, I've managed to acquire pretty much every book I've been wanting to own. Besides this, my bookshelves are very full. I need to replace one of them with a taller one before I can go about expanding my collection some more. Maybe the Lunar series, because they're a pretty awesome spin on Fairy Tales. Or ... I only have two of the five Borrower books, I need the other three ... and, now that you mention it, my copy of Pollyanna is only abridged, and lacks a few of my favorite lines. I a full edition - and the sequel, because it's amazing.


And now, because we're talking about the books I own, my shelves.

This is the shelf that greets you as you enter my room. It starts with my Great Illustrated Classics, which, though they're abridged, have such wonderful illustrations, I love them. Then I have it organized as a proper library from there. ALE (for Lloyd Alexander) through JUS (for Norton Juster) on this shelf.

As you can see, it's taken up mostly by my Elsie Dinsmores. I'm quite proud of my complete set. It is gorgeous.


And then we have my other bookshelf, which is a bit busier. LEV (for Gail Carson Levine) through to WIL (for Laura Ingalls Wilder) here, and then we have my picture books, which are arranged by author (if I remember right) and then on the bottom shelf is Nonfiction. I need more shelf space for my nonfiction.

As you can see here, I also have a largish collection of Boxcar Children. Not a complete set by any stretch of the imagination, and I actually lack the first one. Need to get it, but haven't run across one for sale. 

And, yes, those are furby feet you see at the top of the shelf. Her name is Ta-ta. I have a second, Toe-lou, but I'm not sure where he went. They both have dead batteries, so I haven't played with them in a while.

In the Kastle

Folks, folks I did it! I did it! I finished NaNo twelve days ahead of schedule!

It's a glorious feeling, truly, to be done this early, something I've wanted to do, but haven't managed before. But last night, I reached 80,000 on Water Princess, Fire Prince! I had to write 7,342 words yesterday to do so, totally creaming my previous record of 4,819 (which was set last Wednesday. I've been breaking record all month!), but those words were no match for me.

I'm nowhere close to being done, but I did finish part 3 and plow into part 4, as evidenced by the fact that the wordcount bar on the sidebar is now gold for The Kastle. I'm not exactly sure why I chose gold, but it seemed like a good color. You may noticed that the expected wordcount has gone up from 100,000 to 120,000. I knew I was going to do this at one some point, but I wanted my word count to be higher so that the percentages looked better.

Anyways, since this is cause for celebration, snippets!

Slowly he bent down and pulled his sword out of the dirt where she had left it and sheathed it. He met the eye of the young man who had met them when they entered the camp. Jakob, she had called him, the son of Lord Erik, according to Abraham. He gave Andrew a sympathetic smile.
    “She’s testy around strangers,” Jakob explained. “You intimidate her.”
    “I, uh, sorry?” Andrew swallowed. “She…”

    “Oh, don’t worry about it,” said Jakob. “It’s about the only language she understands. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her speechless before.”

Oh, I get it,” Karlos nodded. “Well, you have some pretty cool animals.” He picked up the giraffe figurine. “This one has a pretty long neck. Why?”
“So it can reach the leaves of pretty tall trees,” Andrew explained. “In real life, they’re about seventeen feet tall, and their tongues are about seven inches long, and blue.”
Karlos’ eyes widened. “Really?”
“Really. I took my brothers to feed one at the zoo once. I think you’d like them, they’re pretty cool.”
“So why did you seem so upset when I showed them to you?” Karlos asked. “They seem pretty cool to me.”
“They are pretty cool,” Andrew agreed, placing an ostrich, the last member of the collection onto the log. “But the problem was, they weren’t supposed to be in my backpack.”

Honestly, that guy was the absolute last she would have picked had it been up to her. His sword skills were subpar, and he was a redhead. She hated redheads. Before she had met him, she’d had nothing against the hair color, it was true, but now … well, she had what she considered a good reason. If she was honest with herself, she still had nothing against the hair color, but between Kath’s constant teasing back home, and the fact that he was one – but, to be fair, what else would you expect out of a Fire Prince? she had blue eyes, after all, as would be expected of a Water Princess – she was willing to declare war on the whole redheaded race.
    It was truly a pity that Amber was said to have brown hair, because her ire had to go somewhere.

What’s with all the papers?” asked Jasmine, sitting down on the other side of the box, and pointing to all the fake money.
“Well, in my world, we have this funny idea that paper is worth something,” Clara explained. “We put special patterns on it, call it money, and use it to buy things. This isn’t real money, but we use it to buy things in this game.”

What’s that?” she asked, pointing to the mug.
   He glanced down and blinked slowly, as he swirled the brown liquid around inside. “Hot chocolate,” he said, at length.
   “Hot Chocolate?” she repeated.
   He nodded. “Want some?”
   “If you’re offering, sure. I haven’t had anything except Hot Pommel Cider since I got to Klarand,” said Clara. “The stuff may be good, but there are days when only chocolate will do.”

People aren’t the only ones to fall through doors, not always.”
Andrew spun around, waving his flashlight around violently until it fell on a girl seated on the top of an overturned helmet – there was a good deal of armor in the room as well – dressed in a tank top and jeans, her hair pulled back in a ponytail. Her hand went up to shield her eyes.
“Didn’t your parents teach you not to shine those things in people’s eyes?” she protested.
Andrew lowered the flashlight, frowning. “Who are you and what are you doing here?” he asked.
“The name’s Laura, though most people call me the Doorkeeper,” she answered. “As for what I’m doing here – well, it’s a room full of things from all sorts of worlds. I sorta belong here.”

The silence was awkward between them, and she was getting tired of it. Casting a glance towards the strange combination of water and fire that flowed beside them, she exclaimed, “Movie magic, I love it.”
   He turned towards her with a confused expression on his face. “Movie magic?”
   She pointed towards the chasm. “Don’t you just love movie magic?”
   He got the joke this time and chuckled. “Water Princess, this isn’t a movie,” he pointed out.
   “Oh,” she let the silence sit for several seconds before she added. “I just keep getting mixed up.” She sighed. “But now that you mention it, you’re right, I just don’t think this is a movie. Probably just a book.”
   “A book?”
   “And, knowing our luck, not even one of the good ones. Probably some self-published work.” She shook her head. “I’d hate to know what the cover art looks like. Probably some photoshop fail.”
   He laughed. “That would be just our luck.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And before I go, I'd like add one more thing. Since I've finished NaNo, I'm going to give opportunity for one (1) person to read what I've got written so far (because I'm brave like that and let people read my unedited stuff sometimes). To enter, all you have to do is comment on this post and let me know that you'd like to read the story. I'll announce the winner next week, and then send them the 80,000 words (or 90,000, as the case might be, depending on how eloquent I wax. I've reached the point in the story where I flew through an entire notebook in a matter of weeks last time.) My goal is to finish the book completely before Christmas, so we'll see what we can do.

Also, don't forget that anyone who has left a review of Sew and Take is eligible to beta read Kingdom. (Although I'm willing to be lenient if you've only reviewed Take, because I'm nice like that). If you have reviews up, go ahead and send me links so that I can add you to my list. I'll be announcing information about the cover reveal shortly, which should be taking place on the 31st of December, should my cousin get the cover art done. I've been working on what I'm going to do for the release party as well, and I'll give you a hint - It'll be very Arthurian based. You guys will love it.

On another note, the prophecy from WPFP actually inspired a girl on pinterest to write a book of her own, except that they're both princesses. Her pinterest board is pretty neat, and I stole some of the pins (though mostly for Fire and Song, because I'm like that.)

Cliche with Kendra - Prophecies

All right, first off, you can now add My Kingdom for a Quest to your Goodreads page! I'll hold tight while you go do so. If you're feelling especially generous, I wouldn't minded it if you voted for it on this list. (It may or may not be there yet, depending on whether or not someone else was nice enough to vote for it. I have a non-interference policy when it comes to my books on Goodreads. I don't rate them, and I don't vote for them on lists. It just feels tacky to me.)



I have a prophesy in Water Princess, Fire Prince. In fact, the whole series is very much driven by them. And I'm willing to say that they are very well done.

However, the use of a prophecy is one that is frowned upon in a lot of fantasy author circles. And I do agree with their reasons.

These days, the prophecy, like the love triangle, is called more and more to be less of a plot element to being more of a plot crutch. It's a simple formula, really, A kid is either a. whisked from another world (usually earth) or b. just going about their daily lives inside the fantasy world when they meet with this elderly man who may or may not be a wizard and probably won't even appear in the story again. (Or at least not until the end of the book where he shows up to give the hero the reward or something like that) The man tells them this prophecy that no one knows the meaning of (which is about two pages long and in beautiful rhyme), and tells him of the terrible evil that is plaguing the country.

The Hero dismisses the man's words, but through some event, sets off on a series of events that somehow brings him to the realization that he (or she) is the hero of the prophecy, at which point they attempt to rebel against their fate for a short while, until they personalize the goal, defeat the villain in a way that was obvious in hindsight (though so frustratingly vague when looking at the prophecy), and then ride home to a terrific celebration.

I'm not saying that every prophecy in every book pans out this way, and truth be told, I've never read a book that pans out exactly like this summery. However, the point I'm trying to make is that the writer depends on the prophecy as sort of their outline. The only difference is that the prophecy actually gets into the book, is a bit vaguer, and is in rhyme. I'm not sure where the practice began, since most of the books I find prophecies in are newer. There is, of course, the small prophecies in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but for the most part, the founders of fantasy left the device alone.

But this does not make prophecies bad things. In fact, I believe that we, as Christian writers, should use them. Why? For the simple reason that God uses them. We're big promoters of Biblical Prophecy in my house, my Dad even has a show on Rapture Ready Radio. I can list a whole slew of interesting facts about them, but I'll limit myself to one (for now):

Every book in the Bible contains prophetic passages.

It's true! Even if it's a prophecy already fulfilled, such as those about Jesus' first coming, or Elijah telling the king it won't rain for three years, it's still prophecy. God likes giving hints about what is to come, and as such, I believe it is an element that we can, and even should include in our own writing.

However, we must do it right.

And to find out how to do it right, we need to look at the Bible. What is prophecy's role in actual history? To show us where and when we need to act and to foreshadow the future. The same should be true for a prophecy in a book. You use it to tell your characters what they need to do, and to foreshadow the plot for your readers. Take WP,FP, for instance. Pretty much the whole thing has been fulfilled as soon as Clara and Andrew arrive. It was just there so that the Klaranders would know the Water Princess and Fire Prince when they came. However, there is some foreshadowing in that last line.

Prophecy comes in varied forms throughout scriptures. A lot of it is in poetry (the Hebrew version, but that's a topic for another day if you don't understand it already), but then there are the dreams (which I also see a lot of), parables, and fingers on the wall. I love rhyming prophecies as much as the next next author over, but I'm sad that we've limited ourselves to it (and dreams, because everyone knows that dreams are cool). Why can't your prophecy be the fairy tale bedtime story that your hero has grown up listening to? (I actually have something like this in a future Bookania Quest) Or if you must have it in verse, try coming up with a new version of poetry for your people - which is a wonderful facet of worldbuilding. For instance, the prophecy in The Trilogy of One are written in what I call Hourglass Poetry, which doesn't rhyme. I'll share more about this when I'm closer to finished, though.

Very important is where the prophecy comes from. Of course, as Christian authors, we need to have them traceable to the God-figure of the world, but even so, you need a way to verify it coming from him. In Rizkaland, prophecies predominately come through one of two sources, either through the Book, or through a Bookdaughter. To just have a prophecy floating around with no source is tacky. Also remember the test God gives for a prophet: short term prophecies. Make sure your prophecy source had successfully predicted something during its own time.

Remember that Biblical prophecy isn't exactly nice and neat. Yes, there are long prophecies devoted to one event or another, but usually those are small events, such as the destruction of one city or another. For the big events, God gave the hints a little bit a time. First telling us that the seed of the woman would bruise the the head of the snake, and not for hundreds of years later before it's hinted at the Crucifixion, and then several hundred years after that before the virgin birth is mentioned. Frequently, the so-called big prophecies were tucked into the smaller prophecies where they're hard to notice.

And don't forget that double meanings are always fun. For instance, the prophecy about the virgin birth also had a short-term meaning based on a looser meaning of the word. Play with words and see what you can come up with. Perhaps a line may mean one thing at one point in the book, but when you apply it to another scene, it takes on a larger, much more profound meaning. It mean both things, depending on how you define the word.

And last, but not least, remember that not every message that a prophet brings from God is one that tells the future. Yes, future-prophecies are fun and make good outlines, but a lot of them were actually rebukes or instructions. Not nearly as much fun, but just as important

So, I hope I've given you some thoughts to think about as you write your prophecies for your prophecy stories. Any thoughts of your own that you'd like to mention? A facet of prophecy that I missed?

Cover Reveal - The King's Scrolls

 If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, You probably know that I'm a huge fan of Jaye L. Knight (Formerly Molly Evangeline.) In fact, she was the only person I managed to do the IndieFan thing that I tried to do at the beginning of this year. (Need to get back to that though, I know who I want to do next, I just need to contact her.)

Anyways, I told you on Monday that I'd be participating in the cover reveal for Book two of her Ilyon Chronicles, The King's Scrolls, and today is that glorious day.

But, you guys know me, I'm not going to give you the cover that easily. First of all, I'm going to point you over to her blog, where she's holding a giveaway for a 5$ Amazon Gift card and one of the gorgeous necklaces she makes:


And now I'm going to share the book blurb and author info:

About the Book
Following the harrowing events that brought them to Landale Forest, Jace and Kyrin have settled comfortably into their new lives and the mission of protecting those under the emperor’s persecution. The fast approach of winter brings with it the anticipation of a quiet few months ahead. That is until the arrival of four mysterious, dragon-riding cretes who seek aid in a mission of great importance—not only to their own people, but to all followers of Elôm.

Hidden in the vast mining valley north of Valcré, a faithful crete has spent years sharing his knowledge with the destitute miners and their families and is known to possess what may be Arcacia’s last surviving copies of the King’s Scrolls—the Word of Elôm. Joining the cretes, those in Landale must find the crete teacher and bring him to safety, but it is a race against time. Should Daican’s men find him first, execution and the destruction of the Scrolls is certain.

When disaster strikes, all seems lost. Could Elôm have a plan even in the enemy’s triumph?


About the Author
Jaye L. Knight is a homeschool graduated indie author with a passion for writing Christian fantasy and clean new adult fiction. Armed with an active imagination and love for adventure, Jaye weaves stories of truth, faith, and courage with the message that even in the deepest darkness, God’s love shines as a light to offer hope. She has been penning stories since the age of eight and resides in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.


You can connect with Jaye on her website, blog, Facebook, Google+, and Twitter.

Delightful sounding, isn't it?

Now for the cover.


And folks, I almost squealed when I found this in my inbox earlier this week. It is gorgeous, and I can't wait to read the story it'll cover.

Now, one more thing: a lovely little excerpt from the book itself!

Excerpt 

The other younger crete took a swig of his coffee and set his eyes past her. Kyrin peeked over her shoulder at Kaden who, of course, was staring at the dragon. The female creature stared back in mutual interest.
“Go ahead,” the crete said suddenly. “You can touch her. She loves attention, and she’ll only attack if I tell her to.” A sly glint sparkled in his spring-green eyes.
Besides Jace, Kyrin had never seen anyone with such bright and colorful eyes as these cretes.
Kaden looked at him, his brows rising. “You can do that?”
The crete nodded. “Dragons are highly intelligent. You can teach them almost any command. Storm here is young, but she learns fast.”
Kyrin smiled at the delight in her brother’s eyes as he stepped closer to the dragon and ran his hand over her bluish-gray neck scales. A grin split his face.
“She’s so smooth. Kyrin, come and feel it.”
Kyrin stepped to his side and laid her hand on the dragon. The scales were indeed very smooth, reminding her of the polished marble stair-railings in Auréa Palace, but they weren’t cold. Warmth radiated through them. The dragon, still watching them, let out a little rumble, almost like a giant cat’s purr.
“I told you she liked attention,” the crete said, grinning.
Kyrin chuckled and glanced at Jace to see if he wanted to touch the dragon, but he made no move to come closer. This certainly had more to do with the crete than the dragon. He was very fond of any type of animal. She faced the crete again.
“So they can breathe fire?”
“For short bursts, but that’s usually all it takes to deter any threat.”
“That’s incredible,” Kaden breathed.
While he continued admiring Storm, Kyrin observed the dragon’s rider. He appeared to be in his early to mid-twenties—about ten years younger than Captain Darq—though his exact age was impossible to guess. Cretes were said to mature faster than humans, so he could be anywhere from seventeen to twenty-five. He too wore a sleeveless jerkin. Brown tattoos, a little darker than his skin, marked both shoulders. Darq and the other cretes had them as well, but Kyrin hadn’t taken a good look at them until now. This man’s were a complicated pattern of spirals and dots, but the shape of a fox stood out in the center of his right shoulder.
Though she tried to be discreet, he must have caught her studying him and suddenly extended his hand to her. “I’m Talas, by the way. Talas Folkan of the Fox Clan.”

I predict ...

All right, first of all, I've passed 50,000 on Saturday, and I finished part 2 on Sunday. That means that my bar on the sidebar has changed color again! Now it's dark blue. I was going to go with silver, for The Mountain, but then I decided I didn't like it, so I went with dark blue instead. I like it.

At my current typing rate, I should finish NaNo by the twenty-first, but since I've hit the part of the book where have the clearer road map (i.e. the notebook version was better written) I should be speeding up. Today, I get to write the scene where Clara and Andrew meet, and I seriously can't wait.

Now, onto the topic of my post.

As ya'll know, I'm going to be publishing the third book of my Bookanias in February. At the moment, I think I'm going to hold the cover reveal on the 31st of December, though I haven't talked to my cover artist about that deadline. (And I still need to send her the back cover blurb.) If you're interested in showing off my cover on your blog that day, email me at kendraeardnek@gmail.com, and I'll add you to my list.

But I was thinking that it was about time to hold something of a contest. A predictions contest.

I've posted a lot of hints round and about my blog and the rest of the internet about what's going to happen in this book. Now, I want to hear what you think is going to happen, or what you want to happen, that sort of stuff. You can make a list on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, you may post your predictions in the comments section.

For every prediction you get right (or close to right, I'm generous) I'll enter a point for you into a contest to win a free paperback version of Kingdom. If you predict something that will happen in the series, though not in this book, you get half a point. If you post an idea I think is really good, and I decide to use it, you also get half a point. (And also a mention in the acknowledgement of the specific book)

For an example so you guys have an idea of what I'm talking about, I'm going to post a list of predictions for a book I've been really looking forward to: King's Scrolls by Jaye L. Knight, book two of her Ilyon Chronicles. (Partially because the cover reveal is this Friday, and it's gorgeous.)

1. Kyrin and Jace will grow closer. I happen to know already that they are a potential couple (and their first kiss is in book 3!), but I expect to see some depth added to their relationship in this book. 
2. Kaden will ride a dragon. I mean, there are going to be dragons in this book and Kaden, so if Kaden doesn't get to ride one, I (and he, I'm sure) will be terribly disappointed.
3. Epic worldbuilding, especially into the society of the Cretes. In book one, most of the focus was on the humans, with some appearances from the Talcins, but we have Cretes in this book, and from what I can tell, they're most of the focus, so yeah. I'm eager to learn about their society.
4. Jace will struggle with the soul issue. I think that this will be something he faces throughout the series, especially since there wasn't enough closure for it in book one. I expect to see at least one relapse for them.
5. A dungeon escape. Not much of a prediction here, since Jaye let slip on facebook that every book except either four or five (don't remember which, exactly) has one. So I'm going to take a step further and say that Jace will be the one in prison. Reason? He's one of the few characters who didn't end up there in book one. I expect that this may be where we see his soul struggle.

You get the idea.

Also, I'll also like to remind ya'll that anyone who has read and reviewed both Sew and Take is eligible to beta read Kingdom. So if you have, feel free to contact me (email above) and let me know that you want to read it. I'll be sending it out in December, after I give it one last comb over. Feedback will be needed before January 20th.

Have fun!
