About Desert Rose

Rose started Desert Rose Reviews after realizing that book reviewing and blogging combine two of her hobbies and passions: reading and writing.  The name "Desert Rose Reviews" is both literal and metaphorical for her, Ken and their life.

While Rose is the main reviewer and blogger, Ken also reviews from time to time, and shares in the posts and updates.  He'll soon become the co-blogger and reviewer, and main editor for Desert Rose.

We have also started a tour service, Desert Rose Tours.  While we create the website for that service, we'll be using this blog for our services as well!  Info can be found on our Desert Rose Tours page. 

This blog is mostly used to share book reviews, thoughts, book promotions, tours, blitzs and blasts.


I've also started another blog! :D  I've started an Unplugged blog, which is Version 2.o of Desert Rose Reviews.  Since this site has become very professional and service centered, I've started a blog focused on goofy, fun, and expressing myself.
I'll have reviews and fun, random stuff there as well as here, but warning, my posts there *May have spoilers*!

Desert Rose Reviews, Version 2.o


Curious About the Blog Banner/Button? ~

Our business banner image was created by Ken, the co-owner of Desert Rose.  Each part of the image has a meaning for both of us.

~The Dragon Image:
The sword is a representation of Ken (he spent his high-school years growing up in Japan, and his name in Japanese means "sword"), and the rose in the hilt of the sword represents Rose.  Then the yin yang sign covering the rose, which covers the sword, is the balance we create for each other, and together.  Then the dragon represents our life, how it's dangerous, yet equally mysterious and beautiful :)

~The Cartoon/Anime Characters:
Rose created the characters in the banner and around the blog, simply using free online character makers from deviantart.com.

Rose has always loved Disney characters and princesses, so she created several with the help of Azalea's Heroine Maker, and Dolldivine/Madmoiselleclau's Disney Princess Maker.  

We also chose a Disney Prince Character for Ken, and his character was made using Prince Maker.  We also have another character for him, made from Azalea's Warrior Maker.  As Ken grew up in Japan, we may also have an anime character for Ken sometime, which was made using the free anime maker.

*Huge shout out to Azalea- her games are fantastic!!  What an amazing artist, guys!  If you're bored, or want to create an amazing cartoon character, check her stuff out!  Totally awesome :)
