Twelve Hours Later — BOOK BY BOOK PUBLICITY Reader Views

The authors have all done an excellent job of creating intriguing characters that sparked my interest. I enjoyed following the heroes and heroines as they set out to find answers to mysteries and challenges with which they are faced. via Twelve Hours Later — BOOK BY BOOK PUBLICITY Reader Views The publisher of Twelve Hours Later, Thinking Ink Press, sent the book to this agency quite some time ago, and just received their review. I was part of the editorial staff on this project, as well as having two stories in the book (“Nous Sommes Deux Heures” and “Nous Sommes Quatorze Heures,” now available separately as “A Light Across the Lake” in my Pocketful of Stories series). I’m honored to have r...

Waste not, want not...

Last night's supper was a hearty soup (more of a potage) made from Sunday's leftover roast lamb. Sauteed chopped onions, carrots and garlic. Add lamb cut into cubes, the lamb bone, leftover gravy, potatoes, 1/3 cup red lentils, half a Swede, chopped, a teaspoon dried thyme, teaspoon chili flakes, salt and pepper. Simmer for 45 minutes stirring often so that lentils become creamy.  Delish! Photo copyright SvD. Original link

Beware what you wish for…

As the saying goes… because your wishes might come true. And no more that six weeks ago I was saying to myself what a damn chore – not to mention the expense – would be trying and putting together a decent collection of The Rise and Fall of the Trigan Empire. A decent collection, mind you, not a complete one. And now I found out Rebellion Publishing will issue the first 340 pages volume of the Trigan Empire in 2020. Finding the stuff is no longer a problem – but expenses might become critical. The series, written by Mike Butterworth and drawn by Dan Lawrence, ran between 1965 and 1982, and this means a lot of pages. Sort of a sword-and-planet/space opera story, The Rise and Fall of the Triga...

Stevie’s second Hard Case: Joyland

Having spent most of the day writing, I decided to take a break at 4 pm and dug out another Hard Case ebook from the big supply I have now on my reader. My friend Flavia posted about starting to re-read once again Stephen King’s Joyland, and I thought, why not? I always liked the cover of this one, time to see if the story is up to it. Apart from the cover, another reason I wanted to get a copy of Joyland was, I heard a lot of King cultists say very bad things about it – and this was to me a certain guarantee of quality. I don’t like King cultists very much (and I am sure the feeling is mutual). So, I am now past the first quarter mark (the novel is quite fast) and I must say I am pleased. T...

Dealing with chronic dry eyes

I’ve been wearing contacts or glasses for over 30 years. At each yearly checkup, there is little change to my prescription. But I am getting older, and last year finally started needing reading glasses in addition to using my contacts to sharpen things in the distance. When I went to my last eye appointment in October, the doctor suggested trying progressive lenses for my glasses and trying monovision for my contacts so that I would not need the reading glasses. Monovision is where they correct one eye for distance and the other eye for reading. As strange as it sounds, it does work though the viewing of things in a distance is not as perfectly clear as it would be with regular contacts. I a...

The Inspiring Muse Award – May 2019

The Inspiring Muse Award
#JIRogers #IndieAuthor #Inspiration #Muse #Award #Blog #Poet #Share #Motivation #Writing #Art #AwesomeAuthor @ jeanneRichard11  The Brief History of ‘The Inspiring Muse Award’ I’ve been ‘Shamelessly Promoting Someone Else’ for as many years as I’ve been online and I decided to take it one-step further. Despite the internet’s reputation for trolls, I’ve found that I interact with a brilliant collection of people on a daily basis. Each offers a gift whether it’s art, knowledge, a story, or just a well-timed joke. I wanted a way to thank them for inspiring me that was more permanent than a typed ‘thank you’. This is a personal award that I bestow on people who I feel are excellent examples of d...
