Last year, I made a bunch of goals. Let's see if I kept them and where I want to go this year. Also, please feel free to share your goals too.
Personal GoalsLose 20 pounds (I say this every year but I'll try to Wii Fit those pounds off this time!)Nope, I gained weight. Figures. I'll try to do better this year! Keeping this goal for 2017.Pass a few certifications so I can find a better job;
Bayonetta 2 is an old game but I didn't have a Wii U back when it first came out, now I do but the game is pricey so I rented it with my free trial of Gamefly. I have to say, I really like this game.
Yes, the story line is average, cheesy and often times, doesn't make any sense but that doesn't take away the charm of the game. Yes, there are often innuendos, sometimes blatant perversion, that accompany the game. And yes, if you tell people that Bayonetta uses her h
For those who likes ghost hunting shows, here's a good one I've been watching on YouTube: EVP Mediums (they also have a Facebook page). They don't have a lot of viewers but I personally think they do a better job than the ones with funding on tv. *cough, cough* Ghost Adventures! Don't get me wrong, I like Ghost Adventures, but most of the time it's too dramatic for my taste. I want to see the evidence captured, not watch theatrical displays by the cam
The holiday season can be a little stressful, especially when the purse strings are forced to stretch farther than my sweat pants! Wouldn't it be nice to find cheap gifts and maybe even make a little bit of money in the process?
In the past, I've done another post about making money from home. One of the websites I mentioned was Swagbucks. I've spent most of today's evening accruing points by doing a fe
I just heard from an otome-fan on Twitter that the new Hakuoki Kyoto Winds otome by Idea Factory and Otomate will include <3 Sannan-san<3 (Sannan Keisuke) as an obtainable character along with Shinpachi, Yamazaki and three new characters! Coming in 2017.
I love this series, despite the MC being annoyingly cliche. The characters develop well, the art is amazing and the voice actors are on point. Now, if you've read by bio,
Have only read about 15 story tickets and um... he's not what I expected. I thought Ritsu was the detached, aloof, semi cold person who would eventually show his kind side... typical tsundere based on my impression from Kakeru Yamagata's route. Boy, was I surprised to see him kiss the MC just like that! He pulled a very Kakeru move in the meeting room... maybe for a reason. Undoubtedly, there will b
From Oct. 30 - Nov. 6, Empress of Ning will be available for $0.99 instead of the usual $2.99. Trying out a promo to see if any interested readers will give it a try. This will only be available on Amazon.com.
I've been busy with my day job and wracking my brains for my night/weekend job (ie, putting together the third novel for Polaris). Finally, I've decided to go with Bai Hu and Dui..yep, the physician who replaced Master Yu from the first book, that Dui. So why Dui of all people? Didn't think he would ever be a main guy? Me neither. Actually, while I worked on the first book, I had random ideas and jumped to di
I've finished Yayoi's route! So, here comes the bashing! Just kidding. I like Yayoi in general, compared to the other guys in the story. And, I should have known they'd introduce a new character in this seemingly last route of the story... Ibuki. Although, I am curious if Kuroko will have his own route eventually. Let's ignore them for now.
Again, the heroine plays a small part in her own route, watching from the side and being protected while sh
Finally! They (Shall We Date? Apps) have put out Yayoi's route for Ninja Destiny 2. Why am I excited? Because I have higher expectations for Yayoi's story than the others... can't do much worse than some of the ones before (*cough* Ran *cough* Kiku!).
So, I'm not critiquing this based on an "otome" author's snooty idea of a good story because let's face it, my reader base will never be as high as Shall We Date? app's so it's apparent who writes better. &n
I went to a friend's farm yesterday. He grew these for me because they're so expensive to buy here: winter melon, bitter melon and Thai chili peppers. Made an omelet with the bitter melon and farm fresh eggs. Good stuff!
Here's what I've been told about these goodies, but of course I'm not a doctor or anyone who can recommend treatment in anyway so don't take my word for it.
Winter melon: said to clean out your colon really well and has a cooling effe
Been trying to make bread for a while, they kept coming out really hard. This one was perfect... well, perfect compared to the other batches. The crust is light and crispy, the inside is sumptuous. I might quit buying bread altogether and make my own... probably not.
I used these tips from Jacque Pepin:
- preheat oven (you'd think I would have done that in the first place but no!)
- throw some water inside the oven (or spray if you have a spray bottle)
So... this otome, Rental Boyfriends by OKKO, has been out for like what... a month now? I'm so bad with dates. What day is it?
It's pretty interesting if you haven't checked it out. Basically, as the MC, your uncle Mokki falls ill from overworking himself. When you visit him in the hospital with your bestie, finds out that he owns a rental boyfriend company calls Lipstick Kiss, and after some dramatic nonsense about this being his 'big secret,' decide to help
The second volume to Polaris is out! Polaris: Empress of Ning. This book can be read independently of volume 1 since it contains routes for Han Bei and Shu Jin. It's available on Kindle for $2.99 or read for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription or with Amazon Prime and an Amazon device!
The book can be found here:
Amazon Kindle Polaris Empress of Ning
**I'm still looking for reviewers so please let me know if you
I'm pretty much finished with everything for Polaris: Empress of Ning except review the final chapters again and edit hyperlinks... that means I'll be sending the second book to Polaris to production soon (hopefully this week!).
I'm looking for legit reviewers in exchange for a free digital copy of the book. You'll need to have an account with Amazon in order to redeem the download code. Please message me if you're interested or leave a DM on m
As mentioned in previous posts, I'm trying to branch out from Amazon Kindle. Amazon is great in terms of the KDP program where I get paid per page read but not in terms of sales. So far, a handful of people have read Polaris and Poetess Xuan but not Malphas. I wonder if it's because of the cover, maybe I'll update it one of these days with a hot guy, that should do it! :)
I figured I need to expand my distribution and since Malphas is not
