Reading, writing, etc.!

You did not want to be in the Nichols house today, especially if you aren’t a Dallas Cowboys fan, because I was going absolutely ballistic the entire game. I have no idea how J.C. (my big brother unit) doesn’t slaughter me, especially since I was yelling and screaming only a few feet away from him. And in front of him. Sometimes sitting right next to him. Maybe even on his shoulders occasionally… 😀

Yeah, I’m a bit much when it comes to football.

And we won by the way, motherfuckers!

Of course, it wasn’t all about football today. I also sat down for a little over an hour and managed to crank out 1,400+ words of my new Deep THOT story, then laid back and used my big brother as a footrest while I read Judy Blume’s Forever in its entirety.

My rating: Heart Rcating

My review: It was a good book, though it did feel a little rushed and hard to believe at times. For example, the end. I don’t know about you, but the first time I’m away from my significant other, I’m made of a little sterner stuff than to fall for the first person that gives me attention. It’s like Katherine (the main character, along with her beau Michael) was madly in love one minute, and a few pages after just said fuck it and went to the nearest thing with a penis. It left me feeling a bit conflicted, and the ending was a bit…anticlimactic.

I still gave it a five-heart rating though, mainly because it made me feel something, and that’s a hard attribute to find in a book nowadays. And it was well written…kind of…

Anyway.

All in all, it was a really relaxing Sunday. I loved it. I’m looking forward to getting up in the morning and jumping on to Deep THOT, which is a bit…more profound than I originally intended. I am fighting to keep it somewhat simple though (and short!), but when it comes to its sister book, Girl Fight, all bets are off. That motherfucker is going to be epic! 😛

Anyway, I saved the best for last: the cover reveal of the Lolinomicon! Here you go, the first in the world (outside of my design team) to see it!

I loves it. Deeply. They really hit it out of the park. But then, they always do.

Until tomorrow, my loves…

    That cover is really epic, Alexa! I love it! I’m dying to read it very soon! 😍😍

    I love the cover but not necessarily the text. It’s hard to understand.

    Hi Alexa, seriously, every time I read those 6 basically non-intelligible words under Lolinonicon ( I really only know “OF” and “AND”)
    I’m not inspired to read the book. Maybe I should be. But since I don’t know what those other four words mean in this context, i’m dis-inclined to take a chance on it. I hope you understand what I’m trying to say. It’s kind of a risky ‘distraction’ so why risk it? Of course, just my opinion. Can you say what you want to say with more understandable words? Or are you trying to tempt them with ‘unknowns’?

      I was going for a…dark and mysterious feel. The Necronomicon, which I actually own, inspired me to write this. The Lolinomicon is not a story at all but a type of encyclopedia for the Loliverse. It details the flora, fauna, magic, myths, and legends of the land, and to be honest I didn’t know the words I chose were that unknown. I knew ineluctable would be iffy, but the rest I thought were fairly common. But then, I’ve studied the occult and theology in general for much of my life, so maybe that’s why they are to me. I guess I could have gone with “of weird and sinister or ghostly secrets or mysteries and unable to be resisted or avoided darkness,” but that just doesn’t have the same ring to it. 😛 Your advice is invaluable to me though. Let me think about making it more clear, or maybe doing away with the text entirely…
