Martak just stared at her with puzzlement, and she stared back stubbornly.
"You're mad at me, aren't you, Martak?"

PROLOGUE

Ten toes overlapping
Ten fingertips pressing
Five senses blending
Two hearts merging
Minds converging
Each half-soul swirling
In the universe
Unites and pours into
One seamless skin,

A perfect whole.

  1. I love the prologue, gorgeous. I like that she is feisty, as well. Going to possibly be a journey from the 56 to the promise of the prologue.

  2. Love the prologue, it is that type of month isn't it? To swoon and fully engross yourself in romance novels :)

  3. I love the sound of both the prologue and the first sentences! It has a very fairy tale-esque sound to it while the main character also sounds quite spunky! I wonder why Martak is mad. Thanks for hosting :) I hope you have a great weekend!

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…
