What is my life right now??

From last night’s wonderful event at Enigma Bookstore in Astoria, Queens. Had SO much fun on the writing panel I took part in. Our crowd was small but interactive and awesome. And Kate was there, right up front! So nice when you have a friend there!!

And Kate and I look like the Kardashians or something in this picture haha

New York City is a series of colors, lights and overwhelming impulses when you visit it for the first time. It’s different when you return. Everything seems vaguely familiar, though there are still keyholes of magic in the shadows, in the reflection of certain store windows, in the tidal waves of human voices. (SOURCE)

Not sure I can ever wear any other sunglasses again. I love these waaay too much.

The front cutout (in some of the dresses) is a daring and very sexy move! Were you intentionally creating a sexy silhouette in this collection?
Dmitry: I think this collection was a bit of a transition from old me to new me. It’s important to constantly reinvent yourself but never lose your aesthetic authenticity. Artistic expression is always a reflection of who we are at the moment.

If you would like to read Inanimate Objects for free, in exchange for a review on your tumblr page and Amazon, I have TWO free e-copies to give out!! Let me know if you’re interested!! Feel free to reblog to share.

Inanimate Objects is a dark and glittering novel of artists and magicians, muses and immortals. At the heart of the story is Leonidas Bondi, a charismatic young artist who falls under the watchful gaze of Matilda August. Matilda has been a patron to the stars for hundreds of years, but this fickle muse is more than a little taken with her new protégé, blurring her own lines of work and obsession. Providing opposition is Matilda’s son, Elisha, a moody figure who holds revenge above all else after he suffers a terrible wrong.

I need one or two beta readers for a collection of 25 (mostly short) poems! I would need feedback by this weekend. Mostly I’m looking for feedback on poem order and layout style. Any takers? :)
