Welcome to the inner workings of my brain.

Must...write...

I find it slightly amusing that I can relate to many manic writers these days. (See above.) Must be that whole “Oh, you like to write? Guess you’re an English major at heart after all.” sort of thing. I digress, but only ever so slightly. If you have the chance, and you’re looking for something good to read this summer, I highly recommend the Johannes Cabal series. (Duo? I don’t know, there are only two books as of late in the series.) I just started to read it myself, but I love what the author, Jonathan L. Howard, has done. His writing style is slightly Victorian, and the main character, Johannes Cabal, is a little more Faustian. (In both practice and form.) I admit, I was drawn into these books by their covers. (I love the minimalistic style the publishers used.) But upon reading the blurbs of each book, I was further entranced. So far, I very much like the first one, and haven’t gotten into the second. If you’re down for a good summer read, these should be on your list, especially if you like interesting things, such as black magic. On that note, here’s the cover.

Love this cat! He must be a long lost relative of ours! I think I have a portrait of him – remember it?!
