Live Your Dream!

I think we all start off hoping to start changing into that mythical supermodel with the long thin legs, that impossible Barbie waistline and cleavage we always wanted as soon as we embark on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)... Meanwhile, it doesn't happen for everyone quite the way we hope it will, and certainly not overnight, if at all. I think it's an unrealistic expectation we all have.

After a lifetime of living inside a shell that doesn't match what we feel we look like on the inside, we want the exterior to match the interior. We feel like beautiful people on the inside, and we want the outside to reflect that image we have been taught from an early age, a woman 'ought' to be.

"I don't think my face is feminine enough". "I don't think I pass". "I look like a dude in a dress"... These are some of the many, many self-critical comments I've heard from many of my sisters over the years. Some of them I've heard crossing my own lips.

Many people tell me I'm a beautiful woman, and these days it's not so much that I believe them, eventually - it's more that it doesn't really matter to me what other people think of my looks anymore. You see, while I am not unappreciative of the compliments people pay me, it really has nothing to do with how others see me - but with how I see myself.

Demonspawn by Christina Engela

"Demonspawn" - the second book in the Galaxii Series by Port Elizabeth author Christina Engela, now available on Amazon.com via J.Ellington Ashton Press. (Local distribution and coverage would be nice ;)

"Imagine if you will... A warship stranded in deep space...no hope of rescue... no way to call for help... enough food and water for 6 months... air and power for 2 weeks. The survivors begin to lose control. Suddenly out of nowhere a lifeless derelict crosses their path, changing the rules... offering them a chance of survival... but only... a chance." 

“Christina seems to have a knack for writing villains. With the Akx she really raised the bar. I felt suspense filling my whole body while reading. It kept me reading up till late to find out what happens.

A clearly written sci-fi novella with an interesting theme on confronting fear. The characters are well done and it has a villain that will raise suspense.” – Mr. Green
