July was a bit of a mixed month. I've started my freelancing for real - I had 3 assignments - , I tried to keep up with reviewing (I clearly failed at that), I squeezed in some SPFBO reading and overall managing some related stuff, I also had a bit of holiday, and all the while I somehow tried to find a balance between all of my work, responsibilities and relaxing and doing some crafting. In the end, what had to give was spending time on social media. Of course there were a few other reasons behind my absence than time issues (anxiety, and getting fed up are amongst these), but I'd rather not go into details. Anyway, I'm always available to chat and do look at my messages, but I don't keep track of people's posts/tweets as much and probably miss pretty much everything. If you need me, give a shout, I'm never too far away 🙂
Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.
With August gone, summer is practically over. September kicked the doors in with a lot of rain over here anyway. August was all kinds of awesome as blogging goes. My stats hit a new high with over 1.100 views. I've got to knew a lot of new people and overall I keep going strong. Hopefully it stays that way. August also brought a brand new design, a new logo and feature images. I also launched a facebook group besides my page where I hope I can interact with you guys more!
Overall, Red Season Rising is a fast-paced, intriguing and promising dark fantasy debut. Maybe it's not perfect, and maybe not everyone will like it, but it has the potential to be epic. It has a ruthless, cruel villain you'll love to hate, a main character who fights with addiction while trying to keep his head clear, and side characters whom you might find liking. The red season is rising, and your soul is at stake. You better pray to Dajda to keep you safe until her children come to embrace you.
Well, June is over now, and it was another eventful month - both emotionally and otherwise. I attended concerts, read books, got awesome news. Find the details in my #MonthlyWrapUp post 🙂
"I truly enjoy what I love, we all do. We love to do this, we love to play for the fans, we love to create music. It's what we do. And we still belong, we still like each other, we still ride the same bus together, we still get to dinner together. It's a family. And I enjoy playing on stage with those guys, we have a really good time doing it. I think if it wasn't fun anymore, we would have to stop, but it's still fun."
This is my big day! Shinedown concert and interview, yay! Which didn't make choosing only one song any easier. I went with Black Soul from the new album, but I'd choose the whole The Sound of Madness album if I could!
May was a busy month and this post turned out to be quite personal. I share a lot of pics about my trip besides #BookReviews, my #MusicMonday and #MusicDiggingFriday posts and #Interviews with @benedictpaddy and @UlffLehmann. Enjoy!
Friday Kick Off Featuring: @Shinedown, @FFDP, @AliceInChains, Lola Black, @ForeignerMusic, @deadsara, @BlkStoneCherry. Also, I own an apology to @shamansharvest
It was an eventful month and I had some good reviews and music related posts. If you missed any of it, I was kind enough to get everything in one post for you 😉
