True Love & National Novel Writing Month

We have all read a book or watched a movie that had two characters that were destined for each other. Soul mates. How many times have we witnessed it in real life?…

NANO is Only One Month Away!

2010 has just been disappearing! Poof! Nine months gone, just like that. However, this is my favorite time of year and I'm welcoming it with open arms. One of the many lovely things about this time of year, other than the leaves changing colors, scary movies and pumpkin spice coffee, is National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is for insane writers who crave less sleep, piles of dirty… Continue

Apple Picking & Carnivals

Yesterday was a long day, long and lovely. Started off with the breakfast of champions (pancakes, courtesy of my mom) with my 8 yo niece.

The two of us then set out for a music filled two-hour drive to Ochs Orchard

in Warwick, NY. I’ve

only been apple picking once before, a very long time ago, and don’t…

True Blood & HBO

Let me start off by saying that I am a huge fan of True Blood! I think Alan Ball is brilliant and all of the actors are so very, very talented. I also love coffee. I was very excited to find that the True Blood V coffee mug was finally available and ordered mine immediately.… Continue

So was it worth going as a pre pubbed author? And yeah the Ny comic-con isn't as wild as the one in san diego. But it sounds like you were in a nightclub getting pushed around and being packed in.

You're welcome. How was NY comic-con?

Jeepers, Viansa. I'm late myself in responding. I hope that you have a great 2009 and will have a very Happy Moo Year! Thanks for your words about Buster. I miss him quite a lot. He was the best furry friend I ever had. I know two people who had pets die recently: one a lady whose cat lived 26 years (unbelieveable) and a beagle at 16. I feel cheated that Buster died at just a little over 9 years. Hope your Winter is going great and that you have a wonderful 2010.

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Hi. Firstly, "The Secret Adventures of Charlotte Bronte," is now in paperback so I picked it up. Haven't had time to read it yet, because I've been crying for nearly two weeks about my little buddy dying. If you'd like to read it, I posted some comments on my page. I hope your year is going better than mine so far. Look foward to hearing from you. Dawn

Hi, Viansa. Glad to hear from you! Was wondering where you were. Guess that answers my question about whether you had gone back to school. What classes are you taking this quarter (or is it semester back there)? Weather here has been awful. I hid out at my grandmothers for 6 out of 9 nights as is a lot closer to where I work in Kent valley. (I live in the foothills.) Roads are very treacherous here due to the very hilly terrain. I got stuck on a hill one day on the way to work as someone was spinning out and I couldn't get around them. Another time, had to go downhill backwards as couldn't make it to the top (was about 15 feet away), then third time my car got frozen to the street near my grandmother's (her parking lot was snowfield). Four guys came by in an electrical truck: one drove it out of the parking spot alongside the street while the other three pushed from behind (this, after I spent some time chipping at the ice around my backtires with a snow shovel at 6AM). It it hadn't been for those guys, I never would've moved my car. One guy even took the snowshovel back to my grandmother's resthome for me so that I wouldn't have to stop again. So it's been positive and not so. I've been nearly adopted by an elderly couple whose spare bed I was borrowing while at my grannie's as she has no spare bed (just a chair, which was not comfortable). They even tried to send me to bed one night with milk and freshly baked cookies! I have five days off from work! Yoohoo! Spending NY Eve with my pup and working on getting Cattle Capers #2 finished. (YIPES!!!) How are the dragon drawings coming along? Gonna do some NY animation. Trying to learn the new Flash Program: has 3-D in it. Excited at the possibilities.
Gotta go and start on the animation (after I clean my bathroom. Yoohoo! I know how to live it up.) Snow made for a short holiday season (and couldn't meet with my buddies). Hope snow doesn't come tomorrow as having my annual get together with a friend who got laid off and left my company a few years ago. I am dreaming of moving to sunnier climates. I wake up in the grey gloom and go home in the grey gloom. Somewhere the sun is shining. But, I'm thankful for a warm home, food on the table, a snuggy bed, and hope for a brighter 2009. Take care. Have a fun NY Eve. Hope you're having fun. Too many drunks out in my area so I prefer a nice, quiet night. PS. Did you try reading "The Secret Adventures of Charlotte Bronte" yet? I got it from the library but couldn't listen in time, so am going to buy a copy and support a fellow author.

Hi, Viansa. Haven't heard from you in a while. Are you doing OK? Just bought the Flash upgrade. Am eager to see if it was worth the cost. Am on vacation this week. Finally! This year flew by. (Needed a vacation: I firstly typed, "This Word flew by." Hope all is well. Dawn
At 2:37pm on September 10, 2008, Dawn M. Kravagna said…
Oh, and I never did take that Flash class then they're planning a major upgrade to the program soon.

Hi, Viansa. Long time no talk. Are you taking any classes this Fall? By the way, I found out why I was so ill all summer: a family member was sprinkling something on my food that I'm really allergic to. Didn't know that paprika was a nightshade. Starting to feel better. After nursemaiding my grannie for months, had to take care of my mother for several weeks while she recovered from foot surgery. I hope the nurse maid duty is now over and I can get back into my writing/art work.

Take care. Have a great month. Dawn
