The writer misspelled rogue as rouge throughout (or at least the first third, there were so many other mistakes, cliches, and ridiculous premises I couldn't read the rest). Then I realized that other Wattpad writers made this same mistake.

And I wondered--what would a rouge werewolf be... ?

To my surprise, this novella is not a parody.

Book Covers

As some of you know, I design book covers. I'm currently in a fight with PayPal which is limiting my ability to accept payments from clients, so until that's resolved, I started finding random book covers that could use an update. Just to practice my own design skills. Picture Picture Of course, just waiting for inspiration from other Read more of this blog post »

even in sci-fi romance I expect actual sci-fi.
