Three Awesome Things

This is your brain playing musical instruments…

 

You may remember me talking about The Kraken King this summer.  It was a serialized Iron Seas novel from Meljean Brook.  It’s going in the roundup because this week, the FULL NOVEL is available.  All 576 pages of glorious story.

A former smuggler and thief, Ariq–better known as the Kraken King–doesn’t know what to make of the clever, mysterious woman he rescues from an airship besieged by marauders. Unsure if she’s a spy or a pawn in someone else’s game, Ariq isn’t about to let her out of his sight until he finds out…

After escaping her fourth kidnapping attempt in a year, Zenobia Fox has learned to vigilantly guard her identity. While her brother Archimedes is notorious for his exploits, Zenobia has had no adventures to call her own–besides the stories she writes.

But when she jumps at the chance to escape to the wilds of Australia and acquire research for her next story, Zenobia quickly discovers that the voyage will be far more adventurous than any fiction she could put to paper…

 

And in other news, there was a kerfluffle earlier this week when Victoria’s Secret posted a new campaign about “The Perfect Body” in advertisement for some new line of bra.  Per usual they were promoting the stick thin underwear models (probably airbrushed) as this unrealistic idea of beauty.  Well, underwear company Dear Kate, redid the ad in a much more body positive light.  I have to say I really love this.  Bravo Dear Kate.
