Christina Victoria Grimmie (March 12, 1994 – June 11, 2016)
I had no real idea of what to draw for this. All I know is that when I heard Christina Gimmie had been shot, I felt I had to draw something.
I first found out about Christina Grimmie when I watched her singing “Titanium” on Youtube. I found her singing to be incredibly moving, and that is as much as I knew her. Yet I feel terrible when I heard of her death, as so many of her fans did.
I don’t want to say much; just this. I think Christina was lost far too early, and I think her death was tragic. And while she might be gone, her songs live on. I’m not sure what kind of legacy that is, but I believe it is a kind of immortality. Christina, I can only say that I’m sorry you’re gone.
I’ve got a certain song on repeat. And while I’m at it, I have to wonder how people apologize. Do you give a gift, beg for mercy, or hope the offended person forgets? In Knight’s case, I’d say running for your life is the best approach.
More on Pirate’s Story! I’ve completely finished all the editing of the book, which meant reading around 240 pages in a few days. That means all I need to do is convert the book to Kindle format, upload it on Amazon and get details like the book description done. It looks like we’ll hit the Friday deadline after all!
In the meantime, let me share something special. In the first chapter of City of Mists, Pirate sings a song at sea. Since WordPress doesn’t allow me to simply paste music onto the blog, I’ll link you to that song on Youtube.
And finally, I feel it would be disingenuous (see? I can use big words!) to ask you to buy or recommend my book without trying it first. Thus, I’ll be making the first chapter of City of Mists free to read when I put it up on Amazon. Now I just have to figure out how.
