In Botanical Inks erfährst du, wie man gesammelte Wildpflanzen, Pflanzen, Gartenobst und -gemüse sowie wiederverwertete Lebensmittel in Farben und Tinten verwandeln kann. Das Buch zeigt, wie umweltfreundliche, nachhaltige Farben aus der Landschaft gewonnen werden und wie sie als natürliche Farbstoffe für Textilien, Bekleidung, Papier und andere Materialien eingesetzt werden. Botanical Inks behandelt Techniken zur Färbung und Oberflächenanwendung, einschließlich Bündelfärbung, Shibori-Batikfärbung, Hapazome, Indigo-Zucker-Wannenfärbung, Holzblock-Druck, Siebdruck und mehr. Außerdem wird beschrieben, wie du deine neuen Kenntnisse über Farben, Färbungen und Techniken in wundervollen Projekten umsetzen kannst – vom Schal in einfacher Bündelfärbung bis hin zur Umhängetasche mit Blockdruck-Motiven. Über den Prozess, Pflanzen zu drucken, kannst du dich neu mit der Natur verbinden, einen kreativen Raum finden und einen bewussten Sinn für das Dasein entwickeln. Zudem wird die Achtsamkeit nachhaltiger Praktiken und die Reduktion unseres Einflusses auf den Planeten zum Thema gemacht.
Ezekiel has survived The Iron Maiden and has become the Ghost of Legend, a soldier that has free movement and dominion over herself inside of the Knights of Almaut. But there's another right that Zeika has earned: the right to directly challenge Adrik Thayne, the top dog and leader of the Ghosts of Koa, for his spot as Wraith. As these tensions inside KOA begin to unravel the insurgency, and as both Orders begin to back KOA into a corner on the outside, can Ezekiel successfully knock Adrik out his spot and take control before KOA itself is destroyed?
´´When the broken man with scarred skin walked into Heathens, asked for a job, and showed me a sketch of a phoenix, it felt like fate.´´ - Adam It started with an anonymous post by someone who didn´t want to live anymore. I read it over and over again, unable to get it out of my mind. What if my brother Johnny had posted something like this before he´d taken his own life? Would someone have been able to save him? I´ve been living a lie for 16 long years, and I´m not sure how much longer I´ll be able to keep it up. And when a beautiful, broken man walks into my tattoo shop asking for a second chance at life, I know I´ll never be able to turn him away. ´´When I was so far down I couldn´t even see the light, a stranger reached in to save me.´´ - Nox I didn´t have anything to live for, until a kind stranger pulled me back from the brink. With physical and emotional scars, I have nowhere to turn now but to that same stranger who saved my life without realizing it. But as my feelings for Adam grow, will I ever be anything other than a surrogate for the brother he couldn´t save? Am I even worthy of his love? From Ashes is the third book in the Heathens Ink series; each book in the series can be enjoyed as a standalone.

´´I never thought I could want anyone as much as I wanted Nash, then I met you´´ (Royal) When I was 16, I was afflicted with a terrible curse...I fell in love with my straight best friend. I never thought I´d move past my feelings for Nash and find someone who could love me in return - until the day a gorgeous marine plopped himself down in my chair and asked me to ink him. I´m falling fast for Zade, but my feelings for Nash are still very real. When life starts getting complicated and Nash speaks the words I never thought I´d hear, the only thing I want is for us to find a way to make this work...together. ´´What if I told you you´d never have to choose?´´ (Zade) I thought I´d stay in the marines for life, that was the plan. But after a traumatic event, I couldn´t make myself reenlist when my contract was up. Confused and unsure what to do next, I called up my best friend for a place to stay. What I didn´t count on was my best friend´s boyfriend practically throwing a sexy tattoo artist at me to keep me busy. Royal is everything I´ve ever wanted, and his roommate, Nash, is starting to grow on me, too. ´´A few weeks ago I thought I was straight. Now I´m sandwiched between two sweaty men. Can´t say I do anything half-assed.´´ (Nash) Of course I´ve noticed that my best friend, Royal, is crazy good looking. I have eyes. That doesn´t mean I´m into guys. Although when I start to notice that his new boyfriend, Zade, is pretty hot, too, that makes me start to question things a little. Not to mention the dreams I keep having of the three of us together. I´m willing to try if they are. This is NOT a love triangle, just good old-fashioned man-on-man-on-man love. Every book in the Heathens Ink series can be read as a stand-alone, but it´s way more fun to read them in order. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cooper North.

Clay: My mind and body are full of chaos; the only time I can truly feel free is when my hands, arms, and legs are secured. Just because I want to be bound, able to give over my pleasure entirely to another person, doesn´t mean I want to be controlled, humiliated, or made to endure pain. I´m a successful, happy, confident adult man who wants a lover to tie him up. Why is that so scandalous? And why is it so difficult to find? It doesn´t help that I´ve developed a hopeless crush on my straight roommate. Maybe a fulfilling relationship isn´t in the cards for me. Max: I´m completely out of control of my life. My ex is trying to take my daughter away from me...again, my dream of owning my own motorcycle repair shop seems out of reach, and somehow I find myself a 32-year-old man who can´t afford to have a place without a roommate. So it´s no huge surprise that the idea of being given complete control over someone´s body and pleasure is a major turn-on. I never had any inkling I might be into guys until my best friend told me he likes to be tied up. Now I´m losing sleep, imagining him bound and begging for me. I can´t figure out if it´s just the kink or if it´s possible I´m falling for him. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kenneth Obi.

From the streets of New Orleans and the heat of Midnight Ink, comes the happy-ever-after for a character whose story was begged to be told.

Though she might have had hand in each of those, she´s yet to find the peace she´s desired. When the men from her past come into Midnight Ink, she´s forced to face what she left behind and what could happen if she lets go of her pain and finds a future she deserves.
