Welcome! I'm Riv Re, teenager and aspiring author. I post Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Tuesdays are for book reviews; Thursdays are for a weekly meme called "Character Dolls," which showcases character depictions I made online; and on Sundays I just wing it.
This blog is for my writing misadventures, my reviews, ramblings, and rants. My favorite genre is fantasy, so expect a lot of the unusual.

Warning: I've got an awful sense of humor. Don't blame me if you keel up and die from reading the jokes I crack.
Notice: I hold no responsibility for any deaths caused by previously mentioned jokes.

Enjoy and happy reading!

Sweet Venom Cover Release

Hey Blogger Buds!
So, ya know Tera Lynn Childs? She's the author of Oh. My. Gods. (mini-review), and Forgive My Fins. And I'm one of the bloggers helping her publicize the cover for her latest book about one evil gorgon's* triplet descendants.
You can add the first book on Goodreads here. And if Librarything is your thing, it's here.
The webpage over at TLC's site is here.
And over at Books, Boys, and Buzz Tera Lynn posted the character collages, right here.
There's even a Facebook page, here. I like it. Do you Like it?
The release date isn't final, but it's currently October 4, 2011.
No official blurb yet, but here's the teaser line...
Three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful gorgon maligned by myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in a world where monsters lurk in plain sight.
Awesome, no?

So, the cover!......

Isn't it gorgeous?

  • I love the font and the curlicue  thing around it.
  • She's really pretty, if you ignore the, ya know, frightening lump on her back. Don't you want to know what that lump is?
  • That braid looks almost vicious. It curls like a certain serpent we all know...


*If you're not too well-read up on gorgon's, I'm talking about Medusa. (Ya know, snake hair, men-to-stone, that lovely lady?)

What do you think of the cover?

  2. OMG--LOL!!!!!!! Seriously, I am still laughing!!!!! Still laughing...ok, breathing returning to normal.

    I LOVE Tera's books, and I've been checking all the links for the cover release--yours is the first one to mention the lump, and I didn't even see it until you pointed it out!!!

    OMG--I love the cover, and now I love it for another reason!!!!

  3. LOVE IT! I love how the hair seems alive and you might not think much of it until you figured out what the story was about, then it takes on a whole new meaning:)
