Oi Vey... Blog formating from hell.

Posted on November 22, 2013 at 4:05 AM

Ok so due to some formating issues with the company that hosts my website and this blog I've decided to slowly but surely move all book and movie reviews to my blogspot and wordpress. You can view each review on either site depending on your view preference but each site will have basically the same blogs.


With that said, I've also decided to keep this blog strictly Tipsy-Ink News. So anything pertaining to writing projects and what not will be posted via this blog! It's a simpler blog that barely accepts html so I was spending wayyyy more time then I should have formating reviews and giving myself a shit ton of headches. It was crazy and turned me into a grouch while on the computer lol. I literally had to add the html coding for fonts, on each line I wanted to change. When your dealing with a review you've already written it kinda makes it a hassle. Oh and then there is the whole no text box thing which is just ridiculous. If webs ever get back on the ball and starts working on this app I might consider using it again but as of right now it's way too simple for my taste.


But on the bright side. Now, I can spend the free time I have writting my own books and releasing teasers for you all :) I still encourage you to follow this blog via Bloglovin so you can get an email whenever I post something new! If your a linky user then you can follow that way too. I'm post the clickable follow links at the bottom of this blog post. Now if your interested in the schedule for any book review/cover reveals/book blitz/guest posts/inteviews for the time being you can find them on the right hand sidebar on this site. Once I've intergrated a calendar to my wordpress and blogger you can find them there.


Review submissions will continue to be done the same way, via the contact box under the tab contact or on the blog of your preference. For each blog there will be a page in the navigation entitled Book Reviews, the submission form is located on that page. You can navigate through all my pages pretty easily as they all have a way to get to the Tipsy-Ink website. I hope you continue to follow my blogs and stay tuned for updates on any Tipsy-Ink Project.


Also, I'm working on the edits for a short story series by Mike Antony Antonietti titled Plain Jane. I'll make sure to post on the blog once the buy links go live ^_^

The Road To Recovery: News From Tipsy-Ink

Posted on July 31, 2013 at 2:10 AM

So let me begin by giving myself a pat on the back and saying I completed the 'Evil Dead Challenge" which I'm a couple of months late reporting on... oopppssiiee  :P


But really I've always been a fan of the series so there was no way I was gonna miss that one. The movie was great, really I loved the direction they took it. The movie had the right amount of gore and the perfect creep factor. I didn't jump as much as I anticipated but I definitely cringed. The actors did a superb job, and the character development was pretty realistic. All in all, the Tipsy-Ink team gives this one and 9 outta 10.


I've also had the pleasure of crossing a couple of movies off of my list but I gotta admit I'm behind on that as well.

 

Any-who, this post isn't really about that, now is it? As the title suggests, you'll be getting a quick rundown on whats been going on and what's up with the ghost act I kinda pulled the last couple of months.

 

First, I feel obligated to apologize for the lack of any sort of contact but I recently got sick, a pretty severe case, and I've kinda been focusing all my energy on recovering. I needed a bit of time to myself to get used to the limitations I now have to deal with and get used to my new routine of sorts. 

 

NO, I have not nor will I stop working on my books and they still have a projected release date. I love my characters and the story they helped me create so not writing that and sharing it with all of you is not even an option to consider. YES, the promised excerpts for Knock Me Off My Choos were scraped but the story is still very much in development. I have a tendency to go through my work a million times over before I'm happy and the chapter I was hoping to release was still way under-developed so I scrapped the release of the excerpt and kinda went back to the drawing boards. There will be a release sometime in the near future with a small excerpt for this series but until its typed and undergoing the editing process I won't be announcing the release for it. So please bear with me.

 

Birth Curse is coming along, slowly but it is coming along. The characters all seem to want to tell there story at the same time so sifting through whats absolutely necessary for this particular book has become a tad grueling. I do have a couple more excerpts planned for this series but they might not necessarily be for this book.

 

Also, I'm actively seeking an artist that I can trust and can mutually benefit from a joint project. The cover art for my series are still in development and while I'm not entirely sure that the cover art will be in the form of art it is a very strong possibility. I kinda have this image in my head and I'm not sure how to go about that lol so my first thought was find an artist. As soon as one is secured I'll be sure to post news on that as well as the release of the song I've chosen to represent this series. I'm really excited about the demo and I'm just waiting for the musician(s) involved to finish up the clean up process as they like to call it . I won't say much more except that, THEY ARE EXTREMELY TALENTED! :D The song will be posted on this site with the name of all musicians involved and where you can find more of their work.


And Lastly, I'm working on an anthology of sorts featuring  10 short stories and novellas. The book should be available for purchase sometime in the next couple of months so keep your eyes open for any blog posts I may put up with information on this and its release.

 

I would like to thank you all for your continued support. Without you this series would be nothing.

Its Movie Review Time.... Hansel & Gretel

Posted on January 30, 2013 at 3:15 PM

I've gotta say, I love this movie and I'm usually the first to nit pick at movie based on fairytales and/or books.

 

It was a continuos pace, no boring lag time and it had a lot of action sequences. I seriously love the little stuff like "sugar sickness" and the way they both got there assess kicked. It made the characters more relatable.

 

Even tho a lot of the storyline is predictable, it doesn't take away from it. It was so well done you barely had time to register your victory at being right.

 

The actors were very likable as their characters but I must admit that at times thechemistry between the two main actors bordered on awckward. During a couple of scenes I didn't feel the brotherly sisterly love, instead I was left sitting there feeling a tad uncomfortable and thinking they might have been better suited for a different storyline or different characters.

 

Not to say Jeremy Renner wasn't a great Hansel or that Gemma Arterton was the best Damn Gretel yet but I noticed my bestfriend and I awckwardly glancing at each other through certain scenes between the 2.

 

Also, even tho I was pleasantly pleased with the crew's ability to make such beautiful women so gosh darned ugly, I felt like the 'henchmen' of Famke Janssen's character Muriel were lacking in the story department. Once again, I'm not saying the actresses were great in the capacity of the roles given to them but I do feel like the writers should have spent a tad more time on the story boards when creating those 2 characters to say the least.

 

All in all, I'd say this was well worth the theater fare. A solid movie, good pace and a noticeable amount of attention to detail that didn't dry up the story or drag it out.

 

4.5 stars means I think it was nearly perfect. I'll definitely buy it once its out of dvd
