February Martial Artist Spotlight: Edna Lima

So I admit I have no idea who scheduling a post works. This was scheduled to post February 28th, but the damn thing didnt post XD

So my February spotlight is about a day late, so I felt it necessary to add the extra intro. But no worries, 2015 is Twinja Book Review's year to highlight all the women, unknown or not, in the martial arts community.

Introducing February's Martial Spotlight:

Review: Jane by Michelle N.Onuorah+ Ebook Giveaway


So I decided to hop on another blog tour for a book we posted a guest post for last week. I(Libertad) decided to review it as well because the cover really drew me in!!! It's simple but eye catching. It's rare when I actually like Interracial couples on book covers that aren't YA, simply because I hate covers that fetishize Mixed Race unions. This one was really to my liking because the girl on the cover is darker skinned. Believe it or not, that seems like a rare thing these days. So off to my thoughts...

Here's what the blurb tells us about the book:

Orphaned. 
Neglected. 
Damaged and abused.

Jane Daugherty has survived what can only be described as the childhood from hell. After years of mental, physical, and sexual abuse, she has become a fiercely independent young woman - closed off from human connection. Unable to believe in people or their capability to be kind, she has vowed to build a new life for herself so that she never has to rely on, or trust, others again. At 24-years-old, she is fulfilling this vow, successfully working as the youngest tenure-track professor at the University of New York.

 Brilliant and remarkably accomplished, Jane's life takes an unexpected turn when she is reunited with the childhood friend she protected in foster care. Alexa Masterson introduces Jane to the family that adopted her, a family that includes her older brother, Aiden Masterson. Instantly drawn to each other, Aiden and Jane embark on a relationship that will either destroy them both or shape them into the man and woman they were always meant to be. Can what started as lust transform into love? And what will bring about the transformation that they ultimately need?

Since the 1970s humans have forced supernaturals to live in caged cities.

All she wants to do is graduate college and stop having to steal to survive. But when she stumbles upon a murder in progress, she catches the attention of a supernatural killer. Now all she wants is to stop finding dead bodies in her apartment. 

Enlisting help from her Were-cheetah ex-boyfriend MeShack and a new mysterious friend named Zulu, she is steered through the habitat s raunchy nightlife. But their presence sometimes proves to be more burden than help, as they fight for her attention. 

While the corpses pile up, and the scent of blood fills the air, Lanore is left wondering: will she find the psycho or die trying?

#BlackHistoryShapesAllHistory

It's Black History Month.

A part of me is grateful of the fight for everyone to know all the contributions Black people have done in the world. A part of me is resentful that Black History is one of the shortest months of the year, and often forgotten not more than a day or two after it ends, particularly the ones who don't care to learn about the Black men and women who've shaped history, and by history, I mean everyone's history.

January Martial Artist Spotlight: Kara Hui

Couldn't start the year off without doing it big.

2014 really started up our Martial Artist Spotlights, but we noticed something that we wouldn't have done intentionally had it not been based on opportunity.

We highlighted more men than women in Martial Arts, Stunts, Tricking, or Action Films. Granted, these were amazing martial artists, and while there are way more men to choose from, that doesn't take away from the fact that this is one of the major physical activities in the world, where it is possible for a woman to be just as capable as a man.
