About the Author

BECCA VRY

Becca

A Chicago native who prefers highrise living and hasn’t owned or driven a car in over twenty years, Vry is a married, stay-at-home mother of two daughters. When not doing the mom thing, she can be found at Art Galleries, poetry readings, creating something on a canvas or through her keyboard, bounding in the mosh pit at a concert with her beloved husband Maximilian, or on the dance floor of her favorite Chicago Goth/Industrial haunts. No matter the setting, she is usually wearing black and her sidewalk-stomping Doc Martens.

Vry is now branching out into original prose with her first release, Hopescapes. It’s an inspirational short story that will appear in Musings: An Argyle Empire Anthology. The story is about the evolution of lifescapes and how the promise of new beginnings inspire many dreamscapes. The theme of this story centers on emerging from the embers of profound loss and hopelessness, to realizing the importance of survival, ongoingness, and the power that comes from re-learning the language of happiness…Two strangers discover that the journey to happiness often comes at a tragic price – the conversation between them, and the connections they realize they share, will alter their perspectives in the most unexpected ways. They will never look at the Chicago skyline, or the broadening hopescapes that expand before them, in the same way ever again.

Vry hopes to release a couple of steamy romances in the near future…if her muse cooperates.

KRIS BABE

Kris

Reader, writer, editor. Marketer by day. Politically opinionated. Not fully dressed without a scarf.

So many books, so little time. And so many favorites: The Blind Assassin, Jane Eyre, The Poisonwood Bible, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, The Goldfinch, The Gargoyle, The Dead, the vastly underappreciated Forsyte Saga, almost everything by Dickens.

Outlander and Twific, Shakespeare and Tolkien. IKR?

Yes, I’ve read Ulysses. Yes, I liked the Dublin Murder Squad series better. (And I never did read Finnegan’s Wake—sorry, Professor Boyle).

SHARI IVEY

Shari

A graduate of Valparaiso University, I have dabbled in creative writing on and off since middle school days (first place in that 8th-grade creative writing contest!). My novella, Stranger in a Stranger Land, in Musings: An Argyle Empire Anthology, is my first published work.

When not working or writing, I am an avid music fan, concert goer, television binger and movie watcher. I am divorced with five children – two furry, three not. I am also probably the person in the car next to you, singing like a mad woman or cursing like a sailor.

My genre tends toward fantasy, paranormal and supernatural.

Mensaje de Sylvain Reynard.

Queridos lectores,

Una vez más, gracias por su amable hospitalidad. Quisiera desearles un feliz Día de San Valentín a todos y darles las gracias por su continuo apoyo. La comunidad de lectores en español es una amigable, entusiasta, hospitalaria y leal. A pesar de que solo interactuamos por las redes sociales, siento como si fuera invitado a sus hogares para reír con ustedes, comer y beber con ustedes y también compartir sus historias. Gracias por invitarme a través de mis libros a sus hogares. Es un honor sentarme en su mesa.

Quiero que sepan que sigo trabajando arduamente para traerles las ediciones en español de The Shadow y The Roman. Espero que pueda tenerles buenas noticias pronto.

 Deseándoles todo lo mejor y, una vez más, gracias por leer,

SR


En las propias palabras de SR, si te gustó la trilogía de Gabriel, también te gustará su nueva serie florentina. El sigue siendo el mismo autor que, con su estilo único y romántico, te robó el corazón en El Infierno de Gabriel. Deja que Sylvain Reynard te tome de la mano y te lleve a Florencia una vez más.

“—Me has atrapado, Cassita —susurró—. Y nunca había tenido menos ganas de escapar.”

My 2016 in Books ~ Mi 2016 en Libros

Hello Book Lover:

On this occasion, I’m going to tell you about the books that I’ve read during 2016. They aren’t in the exact order in which I read them and some of them have a link that will address you to my reviews (some in Spanish and other ones in English), plus, some of the reviews are written on my blog and other ones on Goodreads website.

Making this list I realized that I had read a lot of books even though this year had been a year full of emotional storms, which led me to think that perhaps it is because I’ve read enough books, perhaps to escape the unkind reality.

Thanks God I still have a lot of books on my “To Be Read List”, so for 2017 I hope I can read more books.

~*~OUaBS blog

~*~

Hola amante de los libros:

En esta ocasión voy a contarles sobre los libros que he leído durante el 2016. No están en el orden exacto en el que los leí y algunos tienen un color diferente porque son links que los dirigirá a las reseñas que he hecho (algunas en español y otras en inglés), además, algunas las escribí directamente en mi blog y otras en la página web Goodreads.

Haciendo esta lista me di cuenta de que había leído bastantes libros a pesar de que este año ha sido un año lleno de tempestades emocionales, lo que me llevó a pensar que quizás es porque leí bastantes libros, quizá para escapar de la cruda realidad.

Gracias a Dios que todavía tengo un montón de libros en mi “Lista de libros por leer”, por lo que para 2017 espero que pueda leer más libros.

~Perling LG.
