Minnesota Furry Migration 2016 update

Update: September 9th, 2016. 

Yesterday, I spent my time having so much fun at Furry Migration 2016, whose theme was ‘Quest for Shiny’ amid a treasure hunt I sadly didn’t take part in. Although it wasn’t as massive as something like Anthrocon in Pittsburgh, the convention is still a ton of fun. After the Opening Ceremonies and a greeting to the Guests of Honor, the convention began with heavy cheer and barking! Oh, and some fursuits :3

This week as I’m enjoying Furry Migration 2016 (and having so much fun! :D), I thought I’d take the time and do a review on this book trilogy I’ve been wanting to review for a while. This is a book trilogy made by the artistic illustrator/prodigal writer in the furry fandom, Rukis Croax.

I am Currently at Furry Migration 2016

Hello everybody! I just wanted to inform you that today is day one of me visiting Furry Migration 2016, a furry convention held annually at the wonderful Hyatt in Minneapolis. Today, I’ll be visiting fellow furry writers, including the artistic Ursula Vernon, author of the Hugo award-winning “Digger” webcomic, and the talented Kyell Gold, author of “Waterways” and countless other books!. I hope to give you photos, advice for writers and artists, tales of what I’d been up to, etc. I can’t guarantee I’ll give consistent updates, but I do hope to share my experience at my second furry convention!

Have a wonderful day, and I’ll give you updates soon! 🙂

Review: “Pax” by Sara Pennypacker

What makes the bond of an owner and a pet so special? What makes that bond so inseparable in someone’s youth and adulthood? These are questions I’ve asked ever since my first dog died over a decade ago, and I’ve learned the answer to as I grew up.

“Pax” is a novel I initially noticed while visiting a local bookstore, and was drawn to how simple yet detailed Jon Klassen’s illustration of the cover showed. Add Sara Pennypacker’s heartwarming and poignantly timeless writing style similar to “Coraline”, and you get s novel that left me yearning for a good ending.

Review: “Waterways” by Kyell Gold

“To any gay teens who feel like they can’t keep their head above the water. Remember: you’re an otter. You can swim.” ~Kyell Gold

~*~*~*~*~

To conclude LGBT Pride Month, I’m going to review a book I’ve actually ben wanting to talk about on Reader’s Boulevard for a while. It’s actually the first Kyell Gold novel and first furry fiction I’ve read, and it really influenced me as a writer and as a member of the fandom. This book would lead me to be writing anthropomorphic animals in my written works, and I am proud to talk about Kyell Gold’s first installment into his collection of novels, short stories, and novellas set in his fictional Forrester Universe, “Waterways”.

At Number #1 from last week’s ‘Top 10 LGBT YA Novels I Recommend’ List, you’re still probably wondering why this is at the top of the list, am I right? Well, allow me to start from the beginning.
