Floundering My Way Through the Fog

pier-407252_1280
  Is there anything more unsettling than not being able to see the path ahead of you clearly? Driving home on a foggy night when you mistakenly choose to take the back roads instead of the highway . . . Waking up to look out your window and realize you see . . . nothing but a dense, pale grey haze. It’s how my life feels right now, since I’m not really sure what my tomorrows will bring. You see, a few months ago I held a full-time job, plus spent every spare moment I could nurturing my life as an author. A trip, a tumble, and a broken arm later, my entire life has been halted in its tracks. I can’t work, I’m in constant pain, and even my writing is on hold. Typing, just recently at all possi...

Ghost Stories & Romance: Why the Combination is So Compelling

ghost story, spooky, paranormal books, novels
While conversing with a saleswoman in my local Apple store recently, I shared the information that I wrote novels. “What kind of novels?” she asked. “They’re basically romances, but they are all set in haunted places,” I replied. Her eyes grew wide. “With ghosts, you mean?” “Yes. There’s always a ghost story intertwined with the romance.” “Have you contacted someone to make them into movies? I’ll bet they would sell like crazy.” *Sigh.* If only it were that easy to get the word out to the movie industry about my ghost story + romance novels. Unfortunately, the path to silver screen stardom remains as obscure to me as the yellow brick road was to Dorothy—before Glinda arrived. Her remark got ...

The Fixer Upper by Maggie Mae Gallagher


Abby Callier is more in love with Shakespearean heroes than any real man, and she’s beginning to wonder if there is life for her outside the pages of a book. It doesn’t help that her esteemed parents tend to view her as they would one of their science experiments gone wrong. On the eve of finishing her dissertation, she escapes her staid existence to live in the house she inherited from her Great Aunt Evie in the small town of Echo Springs, Colorado. Because, let’s face it, when a woman starts comparing her life to horror films, it might be time for a break.Sheriff Nate Barnes believes in law and order and carefully building the life you want. In his spare time, he has been remodeling his ho...

Book Review: “The Bog People – Iron-Age Man Preserved” by P.V. Glob

517SwZg2I9L._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_
Unusual material and far from a new release, I just finished reading this title as part of the research for my upcoming novel, TimePeace. The book was originally published in 1969, and is not even available in digital format–I had to borrow it via inter-library loan. Outdated material, you say? Well, not when you consider the subject of this title–corpses found in peat bogs. Some date well over 2000 years old. The discoveries of these bodies is earliest recorded in 1640, when workers uncovered an extremely well-preserved corpse while cutting peat, which was used for fuel. But these bog bodies have been turning up ever since in peat bogs in most of eastern and northern Europe. When first unco...

Name the Goose

A friend and I meet once a week at a Mexican restaurant for lunch. It's in a shopping center that has a pond behind the restaurant. For years, a goose has been living there. She wanders around the shopping center. We often see her near the back door or even walking along the sidewalk in front of the stores.As a joke, we tried to come up with a name for her from the menu. We've narrowed it down to four. Let me know which you like the best and help us name the goose!(function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(d.getElementById(id))return;js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src='https://embed.playbuzz.com/sdk.js';fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}(document,'script','playbuzz-sd...

The Best Marketing Advice I’ve Heard from JR WARD

J.R. WardAugust 2 at 3:19 PM ·Friday is for Writers Marketing… …or in other words, it’s still all about the work. I spent most of last week at RWA National in NYC so a discussion about marketing seems particularly appropriate. As an aside, I’d like to thank all of the writers and readers who came up to me and said hello during the conference. I loved meeting so many new people, and I was blown away, yet again, by how kind and supportive folks can be. Without further ado, I’d like to take you back to a spring weekend in 2004, right before the release of AN IRRESISTIBLE BACHELOR, the fourth and final Jessica Bird single title. My husband and I had recently moved from Boston to Louisville, and ...

Ordinary Magic Series by Devon Monk


If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know I read a lot. I read mysteries, fantasy, and romance. I especially like stories that combine the three. Devon Monk's Ordinary Magic series does it well. It’s well written and fun. The basic story is about three sisters working in the police department of Ordinary, Oregon and protecting all the inhabitants – meaning mortal, creatures, and gods. Yep, gods. Ordinary is where gods go to vacation. The first three books are from the oldest sister, Delaney’s, point of view. They are interesting and flow well. The romance works. I really enjoy learning about the gods vacation "jobs". One small dislike is Delaney not sharing her plans and ...

Michigan


In May, my sister and I took a trip to Michigan. It was a lot of fun. We actually started in Chicago. I had never been there before and found it to be an interesting city. Lots of museums. Our next stop was Holland, MI for the tulip festival - beautiful flowers. The featured destination was to be Mackinac island. We had wanted to see it for years. We had a good time, but the weather was cold (in the 30s) and raining. The town was quaint and postcard picturesque. Our other stops included Frankenmuth and Dearborn. All-in-all a pleasant, easy vacation. Original link

Dieting

I've been wanting to lose weight for the last several years. I have started feeling the effects of carrying too many pounds. My back hurts and it's hard to do things like I used to. I've tied a couple of fad diets - just to see if I could do it. I don't know if it was because I wasn't serious enough or because the diet just didn't fit me, but they didn't work.I decided to try Nutrisystem. I wanted something that provided the meals so that I wouldn't have to do much else. That's not exactly how the plan works. You still have to supplement quite a lot, but at least the main part of most of the meals is set.I have just finished the first four weeks. It's working, but progress is slower than I w...

The Perfect Love Story…with Ghosts

boonesboro
Those of you who know me at all know I am a huge fan of Nora Roberts (duh, I’d have to be dead not to be), but my absolute favorite series of hers is the Boonesboro Trilogy. When I say favorite, I mean, OBSESSIVE. Favorite. Love of all time. I’ve listened to all three audiobooks at least twice. I have all three print books in hardcover, stacked on my nightstand (my good vibe writing mojo). I’ll admit, I’ve listened to books 1 & 2 the most, straying by the time I get to book 3. This week was book 3’s turn. The Perfect Hope. It really is my favorite because not only does the haunting of “Lizzy,” the resident ghost at Inn Boonesboro, play a bigger part than in the other books, but it’s because ...
