Operation: VITRO

Operation: VITRO

You might have heard that Jessica Khoury (author of Origin) has another novel coming out on 14th January called Vitro. Last night she launched a unique contest called Operation: VITRO-a fun, interactive game where you can complete challenges, unlock exclusive bonus material and enter to win lots of amazing prizes! The contest is quite different to others I’ve entered in the past, with unique activities like designing a pair of Vitro-inspired converse shoes, an outfit and a logo for the fictional corporation ‘Corpus’.

U is for Unicorns #atozchallenge

  [by A V Brown, using stock images. See here for full list of sources.] Today I’m continuing with the Blogging from A-Z Challenge hosted by Arlee Bird and his team of awesome bloggers. My theme is: Elements and features of speculative fiction and entertainment. So throughout April I will be blogging about characters, objects and themes that appear in sci-fi, fantasy and dystopian series. Today’s post is all about Unicorns. Unicorns are legendary animals from European folklore that resemble white horses with large spiral horns on their foreheads. They appeared first in ancient Greek natural history, rather than Greek mythology, as the Greeks were convinced that unicorns actually existed, believing that they […]

If you’re a big fan of Divergent by Veronica Roth, you will have heard that a movie is in the making for 2014 and will have probably put quite a lot of thought into who your ideal cast would be.

Redesign a Book Cover Blogfest: Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

Redesign a Book Cover Blogfest: Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

Today I’m taking part in Brenda Drake’s Redesign a Book Cover Blogfest Contest. I think the blogfest was an awesome idea and I was really excited to take part as I love playing around with Photoshop and I enjoy making my own mock book covers for my WiPs (see here). I must say the prizes for this contest are exceptional, thanks so much to Cassandra Marshall for her very generous contribution of a professional cover art design- how exciting?! For my entry I decided to redesign the book cover for Audrey Niffenegger’s novel Her Fearful Symmetry, which I’ve just finished […]


A-Z Challenge: P is for Pride

A-Z Challenge: P is for Pride

Today is the sixteenth day of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Just to remind you, I’m doing an A-Z of human emotions, feelings and mental states.Today is the letter P and I have chosen Pride. Pride is a feeling of satisfaction that comes from your own achievements. We are accepting of people who are legitimately proud because they have worked hard to succeed, but we frown upon those whose pride is excessive. Those who hold too high an opinion of themselves appear vain, arrogant and attention-seeking. They say that pride comes before a fall and in some sense that’s true- we […]

As you probably know by now, I’m doing an A-Z of human emotions, feelings and mental states.Today is the letter M and I’ve chosen Melancholy.
