Hi everyone, Trynda here.

Finally back from my YouTube hiatus, I was swamped during the holidays and ended up moving into a different apartment during January/February so, I haven’t had a whole lot of time to film as you’ve probably noticed. So, I’m gonna bring you up to speed on what I’ve been working on on the side between all the craziness that life has thrown at me.

First of, I’ll start with Patreon. I have,reworked the rewards and the goals for Patreon, I haven’t put up a new video yet but the rewards and the goals have changed so you can also go over there and have a look if you haven’t already. There’s also a new short story called Behind The Mask that’s up for 1 dollar Patreon. So, if you’re a one dollar Patreon, go over to Patreon and have a look, Patreons also have access to exclusive discord channels on the discord channel I set up and that’s actually going to be my next topic so I’ll go and transition into that.

I wanted a place for my readers and my community to go where they could kind of talk about their passions and speculations and really what ever they wanted to so, there are spoiler and spoiler free rooms, there’s also some characters from the stories in the universe that are hanging out and chatting as well. So, that’s it for the discord channel. You can go over and have a look, I will put a link down in the description along with all the other four and I will move on to the giveaways.

Right now, my short story, the diary, that is usually only exclusive to Patreons is available in the magic mystery and adventure giveaway over on Instafreebie so head over there if you want a taste of the kind of stories that Patreons get to see for 1 dollar if you’re ever curious and to celebrate my Instagram reaching 200 followers and my twitter reaching 500, I’m going to be running a giveaway for revival debrief which is a collection of all the Revival episodes up to this point. The first place I’m gonna announce that giveaway is over on my instagram and my twitter so, if you’re not already a follower over on those social media sites, make sure to go ahead and follow me over there. So last up, I’m gonna be talking about what I’m working on in the next month or so.

I’ve been tagged by a fewer other tubers to do some Authortube tags so you can expect to see some of those videos coming up soon. I’m also going to be participating in Alina Popescu’s Authortube readathon at the end of March so you can expect to see a to-be-read video coming up soon hopefully by the end of the week if not early next week. I entered the right practices spring writing contest so you can expect to hear me talking about that on my social medias as well as form the next month or so probably.

And once my attention with the spring writing contest is done, I’m hoping to get a new short story typed up and edited for Patreons over on Patreon called The Grimoire. I’ve been thinking about that a lot and I’m really excited so, I can definitely guarantee that there’s a short story coming for Patreon. So, I think that’s it for now guys. I might be forgetting something, I probably am ‘cause at this point, there’s so much stuff that I got done that I just didn’t have time to record and talk about.

If you like this video, make sure to leave a like and subscribe to my channel for more like them and I will talk to you guys later.

I’m Back! It was a busy holiday season, followed by an apartment move, but I’m back with an update of everything that’s been happening. I’ve also got some news on some upcoming videos, giveaways and readathon news.

The Bookbag | The Lovecraft Compendium & Twilight Of Avalon

https://youtu.be/g0EG1LiyJSE

Hi everyone.

Trynda here, today I’m going be bringing you a book bag video where I talk about HP Lovecraft, the Lovecraft Compendium as well as Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliot.

I started reading the Lovecraft Compendium back in October sometime and I finished it up at the beginning of November and I just haven’t had a chance to shoot a video for it. But I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I thought I would, I really couldn’t connect with a lot of the characters because they just seemed to talk down to other cultures and it didn’t really sit well with me, I knew going into HP Lovecraft Compendium, what kind of writer he was and I thought that I could kind of get past it but it really just stuck with me and rub me the wrong way. I like how he often chose academically driven characters that were interested to know more about this culture of this like squid monsters but they always came off condescending and just downright disrespectful to other cultures and that didn’t sit well with me even remotely. I think of the short stories that were included in this collection, I really like The Call Of Cthulhu the best, it still had those same things that I didn’t really enjoy very much from the others but for the most part, that was really the only one I enjoyed and near the end, I was kind of just pushing through just to be done with it because I wasn’t enjoying it at that point.

All in all, I’m glad to have read this Lovecraft compendium but it didn’t really sit well with me and I probably won’t read H.P. Lovecraft’s work again.

So now that I’m done with the Lovecraft compendium, I’m actually going to be reading Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliot instead of Victoria and this is because I’m going to be working on the draft for Time to let go instead of On Fallen wings and I wanted something that had more of a Tristan in his old field because that’s what the main characters are kind of based off of in my work in progress and not so much of a strong queen-like female protagonist that On Fallen wings has. I really wanted to get my head in the Tristan in his old theme so, that’s why I’m going to be going with this one instead.

So, I think that’s it for now guys, if you like this video, make sure to leave a like and subscribe to my channel for more like them. If you have a recommendation that you’d like me to check out, then feel free to leave a comment down below. And I’ll leave links to all the books that I mentioned here today. And I think that’s it.

So, I’ll talk to you guys next time.

Back with another Book bag video after finishing The Lovecraft Compendium in November. In this episode I talk about my thoughts on The Lovecraft Compendium and Twilight Of Avalon jumping to the next book I’ll be reading.

The Bookbag | Neverwhere & H. P. Lovecraft Compendium

https://youtu.be/16z-NIBAaYc

Hi everyone, Trynda here.

Today, I’m bring you a BookBag video where I’ll be talking about Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, I started this book a few months back and I just haven’t had that much time to read over the summer but I finally got around finishing it and now, I’m gonna talk about it.

If you’re not too sure what Neverwhere is, it’s basically an urban fantasy set in London where Richard Mathew, a regular everyday man is kind of pulled into this underground London society that is based around magic and the feudal system.

I couldn’t really connect with Richard very much, I didn’t understand why he didn’t want to go back to a fiancée that didn’t treat him very well, and I could understand why he wanted to go home but it just felt like a lot of time he was blundering through when he was smarter than how he was acting. I really liked Door, I really wish that we could have seen more from her perspective and just see how she felt about the London Underground and i just wanted to learn more about her and her past and more about what she thought about the everyday life that she knew opposed to Richard who was thrown into something unusual.

All in all, I really like the book and I’m glad to have read it, I just wish that there was less of head hopping and the main character of Richard was a little bit more relatable in the sense that he was actually working to go home towards something that actually mattered and it would have made Richard seem a little more believable to me because it just didn’t make sense that he was going to return to someone who just didn’t deserve him in the first place.

Next on my to be read list is the H.P. Lovecraft compendium and I’m really looking forward to reading this because I’ve never actually read any of H.P. Lovecraft’s work so, I’m really excited to get into all the stories that people always talk about. I think that’s it for this week’s video so, I will talk to you guys next week. If you like this video make sure to leave a like and subscribe to my channel for more videos like it. If you disagreed or wanna talk to me about anything I said in the video, leave a comment in the comment section down below and I’d love to chat about it. If you haven’t checked out my Patreon, I suggest heading over there, I put out short stories, worldbuilding and behind the scenes content for all my writing. So check that out, it might be something that you’re interested in.

If you’re looking for something quick to read you can check out my mailing list and get a short story or you can check out Revival prologue, it’s available for free at the link down below and I think that’s it for now guys.

So, I will talk to you guys later.
