To be honest, I’m confused. When I first heard about plans for this book I thought it would be a shoo-in. I’ve heard fans complain repeatedly about the lack of multicultural urban fantasy, and this one is deep and rich and characterization. The world building is particularly stellar and now there’s proof. Check out this review from a fantasy review site.

Can you tell I’m bubbling over with excitement? I haven’t been this excited over someone else’s book since I don’t know when. Anyway, here’s the blurb:
Bounty hunter Perish Blackburn has an unquenchable need to make money. The world is a dark, dangerous place in 2075, a place where only the strong and the wealthy survive. Perish is strong, but she wants to do more than just survive. And to do that, she needs money. Those without money are little better than slaves, a fate she is determined to avoid. Fortunately for her, in a world where paranormal beings are literally falling at her feet, she has a unique arsenal of skills. Her talents are quite valuable, especially for someone who isn’t squeamish about putting those abilities to use, or particular about whom she uses them for. Things are going quite well and she’s on her way to accumulating another sizable sum of cash when she comes to the attention of the one organization that can totally derail her plans, end her life, and quite possibly the world in the process. They have need of a talent Perish has just discovered she has, and given that they’re not the kind of people you can just say no to, she has to figure out a way to say yes and live to tell about it. She’s pretty sure she can, even with the unwanted help of a werewolf with the disposition of an Old World gentleman, a housemate who can only be described as eccentric and a couple of relatives who have been dead for centuries.

So last year I had the joy of finally getting my linen closet organized. It was absolutely thrilling. (Yes, I know I need a life). This year I’ve decided to organize my scarf storage. Odd as it might seem for someone who is not into clothes, but I absolutely LOVE scarves. I’ve got a ton of them. I used them hang them on the back of my closet door in my old house. They were like art and made me happy happy. We have those yucky bifold doors in this house, so now they’re crammed in drawers. I forget to use them because I can’t see them anymore.
I’ve been pinning some ideas in Pinterest that I like. As always it has to be relatively easy and most importantly, CHEAP. I really like this one. They used these cheap rods you can get at Ikea and simply tied the scarves to it. I don’t want it out in my room and my closet is too small. So I’ve got to find somewhere to hang them.
I like this one too, but with the scarves all balled up they’ll wrinkle (which is one of the things I hate about having them in drawers). It’s more flexible and I can literally configure the cups around a wall in my closet. So I dunno. Anyone have any ideas?
