Intro Teaser Tuesdays



AMAZON

I'm going to die tomorrow morning.
That's what the Inquisitors tell me, anyway, when they visit my cell. I've been here for weeks--I know this only because I've been counting the number of times my meals come.
One day. Two days.
Four days. A week.
Two weeks.
Three.
I stopped counting after that. The hours run together, an endless train of nothingness, filled with different slants of light and the shiver of cold, wet stone, the pieces of my sanity, the disjointed whispers of my thoughts.

  5. It's an opening that does make me want to keep reading but it looks like a fantasy which I don't read much of so would need to know more about it before continuing.

  6. I would hate to be in prison and have my freedom completely taken away! I literally cannot imagine anything worse, especially when you know death is waiting for you, rather than release! I do like the sound of the beginning because I definitely want to know more! Thanks for stopping by :) Have a good week!

  7. Sounds a little depressing, but the opening makes me want to know more about this character. Why is he going to be executed? Will it happen? What led up to this scene?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
