Hey everyone! :w00t!: Once again, the wonderful Summer season has come and is nearly gone. I hope everyone had a wonderful season and spent time with family and loved ones. That's what I love Summer so much. It's a time to just relax, take a bit of time off work, and just be with those you love and care about. There's also traveling, outdoor cooking, and going to the beach or pool to swim! :D I've always thought it was so ironic that me...being born in October, can love Summer so much. :giggle: Anyway, there's not much new with me. I do want to take this time to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers. Last year at this time, my younger brother was going through so much with alcoholism and depression. For a while, we all thought we were going to lose him. But you all prayed for him, sent him your postive thoughts, and he's doing much better now. He's learning to be independent, confident, and taking responsibilities like he should. One of the first lessons an alcoholic must learn is that it's no one's fault but themselves that they are alcoholics. No one puts the bottle to your lips, so you must take responsibility. :thanks: He's learning that, and I want to thank you all.

I also wanted to say thank you for those few of you who finished reading my Okami No Hime story and letting me know what you thought. I recently finished it and even though I did not get much feedback on it from others, the few I did get was very heart-warming and encouraging. I get it, I understand that here on Deviant Art, most people...especially the teens here, don't want to really read anything, all they want is pics.......and pics by the "popular" artist that they can "SQUUEEE!" over like yaoi or yuri. :roll:  So no, I don't take offense to it because that's just how it is here. It's the popular artists and their pics that get the attention, and there's not much I can do about it since I'm a writer, not an artist. I'm okay with that, and I appreciate the few comments and support I get. Thank you, thank you for everything. :bow:

Anyway, speaking of pics, I'm looking for someone who would like to do a commission or request for me for my upcoming novel, The Light Of The Gods, which I talked about in my last journal update. It's for the main characters of my story. I figured instead of trying to describe them, I could find pics of actors and actresses that closely resemble them. :aww: So here we go:

- Billie McKnight - Black American and the avatar of Aja. She closely resembles the actress Keishs Knight-Pullian, and you can see her pic here:…

- Hazelyn Wilkins - Half Black American, half Italian, avatar to Oshun. She looks very similar to the 90's, early 2000's R&B singer Mya Harrison, and can be seen here:…

- Dante Jefferies - Black American, avatar to Ogun. He is similar to the singer and actor Tyrese Gibson from the Transformers and Fast And Furious movies, and can be seen here:…

- Kwame Jones - Originally from Nigeria, but adopted, and avatar to Eshu. He resembles the actor Chadwick Boseman, who can be seen in the movie 42 and the new movie Get On Up. You can see him here:…

- Maybelle Smith - From Jamaica and the avatar to the Ayao. She closely mirrors the famous female Jamaican athelete Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce. Her pic is here:…

- Antonio Sanchez - Half Black American, half Puerto Rican. He is the avatar of Shango. His likeness is very similar to the Canadian singer Drake, and his pic can be found here:…

- Keisha Sowande - Parents are from Nigeria, but born in America...and albino. She is the avatar of Yemaja, goddess of the ocean. She is close in looks to this albino girl found here:…

I really hope that helps. If anyone is interested, please note me or email me. I would really appreciate it. Again, nothing much new with me. Thank you all for your support and I'll see you next time. I hope you all had a wonderful 4th Of July in America! :iconbaibaiplz:

You're so welcome, it'll be fun watching you! :thanks: Awww, thank you so much for reading, I'm truly honored. People today are just so busy and in their own little worlds, so it's really such a wonder when someone like you takes the time to read. Thank you so much. :huggle:

It's true, the world is so much more....dangerous and desperate. But I'm happy there is still some good people in the world. I thank Heaven for that. :thanks:
