#Art Tuesdays #DeviantArt

Welcome to the celebration of Art on Tuesdays – Fan Art, Paintings, Drawings, Anime, Book covers

– pretty much anything I have absolutely no talent with 🙂

If you are looking for inspiration, an artist, or just want to see amazing art, check out Deviantart.com

They have amazing talent.

 

Here are some I found after a quick search: Of course, due to license issues, I can only share those I’ve found on Google that are “Free to use, share or modify, even commercially.” There are many more even better than these, but alas, I can’t afford licensing costs, etc. Anyone who is an artist or knows someone who is, please feel free to contact me as I’d love to have an actual Artist and their Artwork on my blog.

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.

Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it.

#Art Tuesdays – #Book Reveal – #romanticsuspense #MFRWorg #equills

My latest novel, Stolen Hearts Book 1 releases tomorrow! Even though Art Tuesdays is on Friday this week – I’m show casing my amazing book cover – which is art in my opinion – that my publisher SilverTree Publishing created.

Tagline: She stole a cop’s heart, will this thief pay for her crimes?

Genre: Contemporary Romance Suspense

Available: Now at Amazon Kindle

StolenHeartsFullSize

Crystal was raised as a thief, bent on revenge. She uses her talents to target the corporation that destroyed her family and her innocence.

When a handsome undercover cop enters her life, Crystal worries she’ll be caught before her mission can be completed – or lose her heart to the one man she can’t trust.

Kade lost his partner in Texas and is looking for a fresh start in the NYPD. Catching the thief whose been targeting the Westridge Corp. will help his transfer become permanent.

Will Kade discover the truth, or will he blame Crystal for stealing his heart?

Excerpt:

Crystal shimmied down the drainpipe with her trophies tucked inside her backpack and computer files loaded onto her USB, hung around her neck disguised as a locket. This was too easy. Not like the Warren job where the COO kept changing the menu and supervised their catering to ensure they had followed the strict rules of kashrut.

She landed on the concrete with a thump, then removed her mask. Usually she worked at night when the catering gig didn’t provide the necessary cover, but she had a date this evening.

A blind date.

Her sister’s fiancée had called earlier that day to let them know his cousin from Texas would join them for dinner and would Crystal come along? As far as Crystal was concerned, it was the closest thing she’d come to as a real date in a long time. She’d take it.

Thankfully, her catering appointment with Westridge canceled yesterday. While she enjoyed cooking, it was only a cover for her and her sister’s illegal activities. What she excelled at was computers, but having a career in that field, now, would be too suspicious. Her IT skills far exceeded a Level One Help Desk worker. She despised working for Westridge, the man who had her mother killed and her dad thrown into jail, but catering was the easiest way into her target’s homes without suspicion. And she refused to pose as a cleaning lady and scrub their filth.

Years ago, Dad found what he thought was a series of accounting errors. For his honesty trying to help Westridge correct the problem, he was thrown in jail to rot. Westridge and his company framed her dad for embezzlement and sharing confidential information with preferred suppliers to obtain favors. Now she and her sister were halfway toward exonerating him and exposing Westridge and his corporate crimes. To see the look on Joshua Westridge’s face when he was convicted would make all her and her sister’s sacrifices worth it.

Thunder boomed as she weaved through alleys, stinking of rotting food and urine. She barely made it to her car before thunder rumbled.

Crystal checked the time on the dashboard, almost seven. No time to waste. Paul and his cousin, Kade, were picking up her and her sister at seven-thirty. Her car hummed to life as she stashed her backpack behind her seat. The stolen cash, including a recently purchased blood diamond necklace, lay inside. Hopefully the money and necklace would throw off Westridge’s Sales Manager to the fact that computer information had been the real prize. And hopefully, they wouldn’t discover the truth until it was too late. For now, another piece of the puzzle to exonerate their dad and lock Westridge away lay on her chest inside her locket.

She whipped into traffic and hit the wipers as fat drops of rain slapped against the windshield. Great. Ahead, a red light flickered as taxis and cars lined up behind it. She debated taking Ninth, but decided against it. Construction was still ongoing and traffic would be worse than this.

Maybe squeezing in a job before dinner wasn’t such a great idea.

Tuesdays #Art – #Anime

Anime is from Japan, primarily, and is either computer animation or hand-drawn. And many of these are suburb artists. Which is why today on Fan Art Tuesdays, I’m sharing some gorgeous Anime pictures.

Of course, due to license issues, I can only share those I’ve found on Google that are “Free to use, share or modify, even commercially.” There are many more even better than these, but alas, I can’t afford licensing costs, etc. Anyone who is an artist or knows someone who is, please feel free to contact me as I’d love to have an actual Artist and their Artwork on my blog.

Fan Art Tuesday

Welcome to Fan Art Tuesday!

With the holidays, things have been busy. However, Today is my Birthday, so another light Fan Art post. As a reminder, I can’t draw, paint, or even pretend to 😉 If you have a book cover reveal or a before and after cover, send me a request. I’d be happy to post your covers. Or if you paint, draw, etc. or know someone who does, I’d love to feature an artist on Fan Art Tuesdays. Let me know.

 

What’s your favorite type of cake?
