Ambrosia’s little note:

Happy Teaser Tuesday everyone! As always I hope I find you well this Tuesday and enjoying your reads! Hello November and hello sort of fall weather in Tucson. Cool enough in the mornings and some evenings to need a hoodie. I adore hoodie season and it is so short here compared to Minnesota, LOL. Alas it is here and I am very grateful for the cooler temps.

Now onto this week’s teaser. A re-read for me this week as it has been more then 2 decades since I picked these up and the new movie is great. *feels old now*

Ambrosia’s little note:

Happy Teaser Tuesday everyone! As always I hope I find you well this Tuesday and enjoying your reads! Short and sweet without an updated teaser for me this week (sorry) gave myself a little bit of heat stroke helping someone trap a cat that needed serious medical help in the 114 weather we have here. Worth it though got kitty to the vet and he’s gonna be ok.

Anyways, onto this week’s Teaser:

Comedy of errors I tell you. My quote is the same this week as last because I have been having some issues getting my laptop to load so I am posting this mobile. I haven’t had a chance to grab my read and I hope this goes through from my phone! I tell ya it’s like a series of unfortunate events here lately 😂

Book Review: The Book of Deacon (The Book of Deacon #1) by Joseph R. Lallo

The tale of Myranda Celeste, a young woman orphaned by a century long war, and her chance discovery of a fallen soldier’s priceless cargo. The find will change her life, sending her on an adventure of soldiers and rebels, wizards and warriors, and beasts both noble and monstrous. Each step will bring her closer to the truth of her potential, of the war, and of the fate of her world.


This is one of those books that I just really am not sure what I should say about it. The book was not bad by any means, but it also was not what I would call a good book. Overall for me this one just came up as a bit meh and forgettable, sorry if that sounds a little bit harsh but there we have it.

The first chapters of this book were very boring to me. There were many times in fact that I wanted to just delete it from my device and not worry about it any further. I am glad that I didn’t do that as I really am not a big fan of DNF but it does happen. This is a book that I am glad I finished, but beyond that I really just could not feel a connection with any of the characters. It just feels as if none of them really fully formed enough for me to like them or “feel them”. There were a great many errors in the book which does tend to happen a lot with self published work. I try not to judge authors for that because I know I don’t write perfectly and it is incredibly brave to put your work out there. However, in this instance it was bad enough for me that it began to interfere with reading the book. Myranda was not the character I hoped she would be, I just wanted to tell her to get with the program and light a fire under her butt.

So for me, I wouldn’t say to read it, but I also wouldn’t tell you not to read it, maybe you will like it better than I did. Perhaps characters get better fleshed out in later books, I am not sure I will carry on past this one to find out.

Pardon the dust

Please pardon the dust around the blog as I work on getting the new theme completely installed. It is a wonderful theme and I am very excited to be taking this next step forward in my book blogging adventure! It is a little scary leaving behind Fire & Ice, but I feel like the same was right.

So welcome, have a look around and mind any dusty areas.

Can you hear the bells yet?

The time of year that everyone (but me) seems to love is right around the corner. As soon as the Halloween decor came out of course so did the Christmas items. That is one of the biggest reasons I have issues with Christmas, every year they seem to put out the decorations earlier and earlier and intruding upon my favorite holiday. With all of that said, I am trying really trying this year to get into the spirit and enjoy. I gave my word that I would try.

Of course I make most of my holiday items by hand, anyone who has taken a look at Creations of Bastet has seen how obsessive I can be about my handmade items, I just love them. However, I also know there are somethings I just can’t make on my own, sure would be fun if I could! I have a lot of musicians in my life and there is no way I can make instruments or most of the things that go with them. Luckily I can shop at musiciansfriend.com for everything that I need for the musicians in my life. Then I can go ahead and make a fun crochet guitar strap or some other fun accessory that goes with the instruments. See I can still work my own fun obsessions in with things I can’t make myself.

You better work!

Insert snappy fun fingers here, but all kidding aside, this is a new age of work and some of the best jobs are a form of online work. Whether you are marketing yourself as a blogger or influencer or working to get your company going the place to do it now is online.

Yes, there is still a place for face to face networking and having business cards, but the majority of marketing in today’s society needs to take place on the world wide web. We are a society that is constantly connected via computers, phones and other devices. You really can’t escape it. The tough part of that kind of marketing is there are so many subtle nuances it can be hard to stand our or even know where to start. That is why hiring a professional is always a good way to go. Companies such as Triangle Direct Media know exactly what needs to happen to make your website come up in searches and to get your brand out there. Brand is important and getting your work seen is too!
