As one of the #CMCon19 featured bloggers, I get to have a little fun with a few of the fabulous authors who will be hitting the beach for Coastal Magic 2019 by showcasing their many stories.

Titans Trailer Disappointment

20 July 2018 Jackie 0

I get that DC Comics has this whole dark and gritty cinematic universe, but the trailer for Titans is really disappointing. My boys love the Titans; any Titans comics they see, they want; they love everything that has been released so far. When they heard they were getting a live […]

My Boyfriend in Orange by Non Tamashima

17 July 2018 Jackie 0

Last night I finished reading My Boyfriend in Orange by Non Tamashima, and of all the manga I’ve been reading lately, this one hasn’t given me a book hangover like the others have. I still devoured all four volumes in one sitting, but I’m not as anxious to see what happens […]

It’s the final day of 2017…

31 December 2017 Jackie 0

I. Can’t. Wait!! The first book in Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampire spin-off series has a cover! Add in the fact that we’re also getting the son of Gabriel Keene, and oh many is it July yet?! So yeah, I’m a huge Chloe Neill fan, if you haven’t figured that out […]

#CMCon18JunePics Contest

15 June 2017 Jackie 0

Last week LE joined Instagram, right…well happy coincidence, Jennifer started a #CMCon18 June Picture Contest.

But that’s not the reason I’m posting today. Well…it is to […]
