KJ's Book Review Blog

Hey, all you infinitely patient watchers! How have you been? I wanted y'all to know that I've started a book review blog where I yell about all the things I used to write journal entries about. So if anyone has missed my grumping about writing and storytelling, you can find me sharpening my claws on other people's books.

Thanks for the fave on my Terra costume! <3
You have a very nice art style, lady! :D
I'm glad you like it! 'Fraid there's not much happening in terms of future art, but I appreciate the compliment.

Hello! I'd like to invite you to our group, LegendofDragoonArt after seeing the LoD artwork in your gallery. Please help our new group grow, even if you will not be contributing further. There is an immense lack of art for this particular game, and we want to put the best out there for fans to see.

Please consider our request and we hope to see you soon!
