The Ink Drinker Series

There are four installments of the Ink Drinker series, which are about Odilon, Carmilla and Draculink - vampires who thirst not for blood, but for ink off the pages of books. They slurp up the ink through their ink-drinking straws and face adventure and drama at every turn. The Ink Drinker books are super-quick reads, each averaging about 50 pages. The latest book in the series is Little Red Ink Drinker and finds Odilon and Carmilla in quite the predicament. A strange turn of events leads the two to be sucked into the book they are drinking and they have no idea how to get out! The Ink Drinker books are perfect reads to get you into the Halloween vibe.

    thanks for posting this Kristen. I think that it is a tough subject to talk about with other people and honestly I think it's good to talk about it in a moderate amount. Now that more pepole are being diagnosed with learning differences or some sort of other mental health disorder, I think that talking about it and informing people will only make it easier for people to feel less awkward or the odd man out. That's how I found about that I am not the only person in the room who has ADD. I'm more willing to come out and talk to people and discribe what I have to go through on a daily basis to raise awareness. School will always be hard for me so I look at my strengths to help push me forward in life.

    Oh wow, a genuine trigger warning. Did the memes teach you nothing?  First off, an actual warning. Take no action based on what you've read here without first consulting a mental health professional.  Now, I have a lot of experience in mental illness. I have ADHD(Pre-DSMV), an anxiety disorder, and I've tested significant for bipolar (Pre-DSMV).  My best advise is to find a therapist that you personally connect with. It's not about being comfortable, because a good therapist will challenge your thoughts, but you need to be able to accept those challenges. And to do that, you'll need a therapist that you mesh with.  Aside from that, good medication can go a long way to helping you live with your mental issues. However, this isn't true for everyone, and it should be handled by a medical professional.
