Cinematic Dreams

A long time ago...a loooooooong time ago now, I wrote about how my dreams can become like movies. Well, for the past two days I've been having these really crazy cinematic dreams that play out like I'm really living them. They jar me so much when I wake up, that I have to sort of readjust my mind and remember what world I'm experiencing! So weird. This past one I can't really remember much of, or else I'd do some dream symbol research (for fun's sake) to see what my subconscious is pondering without me knowing...Hmm.

Anyway, I should start writing in my journal again (my print journal ;-)) to see if there's a sort of pattern developing. Who knows, maybe a story can come of it!

In other news, my mom got this fabulous new catalog from Gold Coast Africa and there are some beautiful things in there! Being a fantasy fan I noticed right away all of the Af-Am fantasy themes in there. I circled a porcelain Fairy doll, a knight and I was thinking of getting a mermaid also. This got me thinking how awesome it is in this day and age to have an variety of cultures within different themes. Fantasy is traditionally of a Eurocentric nature which started my drive in writing different cultures in the fantasy genre. Ursula K. Le Guin tends to write like this as well and she's one of many authors on my 'To Read' list.

I hope to continue to see more diversity in the speculative genre in literary format as well as the big screen.

Hi Rae,
Please be sure to post what you find out about your dreams. I'd be greatly interested in knowing too. Um, how about a peek into your mind? Any of those vivid dreams you care to share? :)

Hehe I'll have to do that.

Agh, I so should write them down because I keep forgetting and then I end up forgetting the dream! lol.

I'll try and think back though hehe.

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
