LOST IN THE STORM


  pale-womann Source:   The storm approaches the shore. Dampness coats the air. Mist sprays against my face. Strands of hair fly in the wind. Thunder rumbles in the distance. I feel it. It’s almost here. Will I lose myself to it? Let it take me to its depths. I spread my arms, Lift my head high. I let myself fall. Arms pull me under. Lips reach for mine. I’m lost for eternity, Lost to the rushing wind, Prisoner of the ultimate despair, Partner in pain and sorrow. The choice is made and done. I float away with my dear one. Together we will forge a path Through darkness and hell To a heavenly place beyond. Original link Original author: Susanne Leist

Are You Aware Of Errors Needing Your Attention?


Attract the Right Job Or Clientele: Every endeavor requires that you be aware of errors needing your attention. Unfortunately, only some of us are motivated to do better. “Today’s disaster can be tomorrow’s silver lining.” My Story We each envision the best possible outcome as we attempt to build our business. Most of us know that not everything will work out as we expect. Two factors make all the difference: The motivation to review the errors  Adjust the plan for future endeavors Throwing our hands up in the air and saying, ‘oh well, next,’ will never improve our game. Instead, be aware of errors  needing your attention.  Make the time and effort to learn from the poor experience.  As othe...

Weekend Reads: “The Long-Lost Love Letters of Doc Holliday”

The Long-Lost Love Letters of Doc Holliday
The Long-Lost Love Letters of Doc Holliday by David Corbett My rating: 4 of 5 stars When attorney Lisa Balamaro agrees to help her former client (and current crush) Tuck Mercer ensure that a friend of his gets her unusual inheritance, she’s in for way more than she anticipated. The inheritance? A set of love letters between Doc Holliday and his cousin Mattie … letters which may or may not be forgeries. Soon, Lisa’s up to her neck in bad guys … some of whom want the letters themselves, and other who just want to see the letters destroyed. Along the way there are subplots involving immigration, art forgery, and veterans with PTSD who also have a stake in the game. There are abductions, fist fi...

Special Guest Post by Matthew Harffy, Author of The Bernicia Chronicles


New on  Amazon UK  and  Amazon US AD 643. Anglo-Saxon Britain. A gripping, action-packed historical thriller and the sixth instalment in the Bernicia Chronicles. Heading south to lands he once considered his home, Beobrand is plunged into a dark world of piracy and slavery when an old friend enlists his help to recover a kidnapped girl.  STORM OF STEEL and the ships of the Anglo-Saxons One of the many great things about writing historical fiction is doing the research, particularly visiting sites that appear in the novels. There is nothing quite like walking on the same ground as the characters you are writing about to get into their mind-set. My series, The Bernicia Chronicles, is set in se...

A Kickstarter for a Clark Ashton Smith-based movie


OK, guys, we need to move fast: the Kickstarter for The Last Incantation, an indie fantasy movie based on a short story by Clark Ashton Smith will last only 9 more days and the crew needs still about 500 dollars to hit the target and actually make the movie. You can see all of the details here. If you read this blog, I don’t need to tell you who Clark Ashton Smith was, what an indie fantasy movie is, and why these could be the best ten bucks you spend this year. Original link

Readers' Favorite Review of 'The Two Faces of Killer Kilbride'

The ambiance and period of the setting serve the story’s dark element well. The Two Faces of Killer Kilbride is an apt title; the townsfolk are enthralled with the lead character so much that they appointed him as the mayor. It seems they made the right choice until this likable man shows his dark side to the ones who are unfortunate enough to be his victims. Kilbride is so infallible that an unexpected turn of events only rattled him a bit. Nevertheless, I’ll say no more, just know that this short story will make readers ponder about the real 'Kilbrides' out there who know how to woo and eventually silent their unsuspected victims. With lyrical but tight prose, Kearns gives readers an enjoy...

3 Challenges to writing historical fiction – by Margaret Skea | A Writer of History

Firstly, my passion is for historical authenticity – providing a ‘you are there’ experience for the reader. Now, of course, they aren’t there and neither am I, but I want readers to be so immersed in the period and the story that for a time they forget the 21stcentury and feel as if they are. One of the keys to that is extensive and rigorous research. Along with lively and cinematic writing. via 3 Challenges to writing historical fiction – by Margaret Skea | A Writer of History Original link

Do you attract wrong people?


It happens that you wish to attract a certain person. Your vision is about someone who will support you, offer a shoulder for crying, someone you can lean on. Instead of this, you got a passive person who will not move a little finger for you. Or you got an egoist who just thinks of himself and his needs. It is wrong to blame a person who is in your life now. You could blame your choice, or research your character. What is inside of you that you attract someone like this?  What kind of impression you leave? If you are a fragile woman, kind and obedient, you will attract a tough guy who will stand by your side and protect you. If you are a strong, independent woman, you will attract a soft ma...

He hopped off the couch and ran to the front door barking his head off. And from outside the door, came, “Yip, yip, yip!” He scuttled back to the couch and wiggled his way underneath it.           Something brushed against the back door.           “Go ‘way! I shouted.”           “Go ‘way!” the thing echoed.           I heard others at the windows. The creatures had sur...

Crazy Country Living and a New Lease on Writing


I've always dreamed of living in a more secluded area than the one in which I grew up. The yard I played in as a child was full of trees, many of which collapsed during hurricanes. The same was true of our neighbors' yards, and though living in the suburbs isn't exactly the same as living in the city, I still longed for that feeling of seclusion one can only get from being in a remote, wooded area. I've always written my best work when surrounded by beautiful scenery. To have it all around me, what excuse could I have not to write the best book possible? When my husband and I started looking for a house, it came as no surprise to me that the ones capturing my attention were in rural neighbor...

The death of Sir Charles Brandon, Tudor Knight, 22 August, 1545
