More pretty images to make your day

It might be cold enough that I am wearing hand warmers, three pairs of socks and three sweaters (thanks so much roommate for leaving your window open when it is freezing outside) but there is nothing as nice as looking at lovely images and sharing them with you!

A Different Drabble for St Patrick's Day

Thought I would write something quick for the you go!

Wear Your Green

Come sit with me, my friend. The grass is still hidden by white, but listen to closely and you will hear a pipe on the wind. Spring is nearly here and the small folk are getting ready. Put on your green and look for them. If you are lucky you just might see a leprechaun, but don’t try and trick them. Those legendary pots of gold are not for you and you will just make them angry. Instead offer them a drink, a bit to eat and listen to their tales of days gone by. Just don’t mention Saint Patrick!

A review and art, what else?

Today I thought I would comment on a short story from Bitten by Cupid. This anthology only had three tales in it but they were good ones.

The story I am reviewing from this collection is Vampire Valentine by Lynsay Sands. Another story in her Argeneau stories. In this one we meet Mirabeau and Tiny. Mirabeau is a female hunter who lost her family at the tender of of 17 and Tiny is a human who works for the family. Together they are in charge of taking Stephanie to safety. This story is almost up her usual well written tales. As always she gives us rich characters with back stories that make you want lots more. In fact that problem is is that she did not quite finish the story. Two or three more pages would have made this novella go from great to amazing. It is obvious to me that Ms Sands is not quite used to writing in the shorter form. As a writer of short stories I can understand how hard it is to work in that form. She is a really great author and I plan on reading as many of those books as I can.

Now how about some lovely fantasy art from the past?
