Romantic Wednesday Tamera Alexander Within My Heart

I want to thank everyone for such a nice response to our first official romance day; I was stunned. Let’s get right to this novel as it’s something that really found a place in my mind and heart very quickly. I guess

having a wife and seven daughters rubbed off on me a little and I was able to

channel my feminine side during this read. I really am enjoying the historical

romance category. I am going to try others, but right now I am grooving on this

Back from the funeral -- now I have to return for ANOTHER funeral. Death is so inconvenient.

Went to my sister's funeral, and got back to Southern California Monday night. On Tuesday, my kids' grandmother died. Yep, another funeral this weekend. I'll do my radio show first, with special guest Susan Murphy Milano, then fly back to Seattle. <sigh> Death isn't part of the "circle of life," it's a damn cul-de-sac.

Christopher Payne The Gargoyle Prophecies, Part I The Savior

I have been reading much more sci-fi and paranormal then I usually do, I have no idea why. That being said, I thought I would just start to get into a groove and sit back and enjoy the reading. I hit a couple winners

for this week. Today I am featuring Christopher Payne and his debut The Gargoyle Prophecies. Debuts are a

mixed grab bag; this one sits near the top. The plotline is different from

anything I have read or seen about gargoyles. He…

Daniel Carter The Unwanted, Part One of the Trilogy

The sci-fi, paranormal parade continues with another barnburner that is a series. Trust me, when you read this you will be glad it is a series, there is so much info, backstory, and plotline crammed into this

installment, reading the next two is a must. The plotline is complex, the

reading enjoyable and fun; there are just so many facets and elements to it.

Without further ado, here is the synopsis of the novel:

this genre of novel happy. Have I piqued your interest at all? Hopefully. Here

Self-Published Sunday Julie Ann Weinstein Flashes from the Other World

I am going to have to split some hairs on this one. The title Flashes from the Other World is for a grouping of short stories by Julie Ann Weinstein; it is not just one story. The way I have justified using it

today instead of on Digital short Saturday (where it could also fit), is that

if you get the e-version of the book you

can read as just that, a bunch of digital shorts. This is a very eclectic grouping

of stories, but I think that for the…

Swallow semen, identify penis: Helen Fitzgerald’s Writing Life interview

It will be a long time before anyone thinks of a better way to open their first novel than this: “My best friend Sarah was asleep. Her husband was lying beside her, and I was swallowing his semen.” That’s paragraph two of “Dead Lovely” by Helen Fitzgerald, a fabulous crime novel which manages to amuse, titillate and disturb. Since she published Dead Lovely in 2008, Helen has released three more adult titles and a teen novel. Born in Australia, she lives in Glasgow, Scotland,…

Digital short Saturday The Kindly Stop Cafe Mark Maciejewski

We are going with a double shot of fun with two digital short posts today. The first one is The Kindly Stop Café brought to us by Stone House Ink. The other digital short we have is a self-published work by Julie

Ann Weinstein. I need to stay focused here. Mark Maciejewski has put together a

very compact, concise, and moving narrative in The Kindly Stop Café. It really

hits the mark and then some. To be honest with you, I am still thinking about

it. I…

What a blissful Saturday, I've been up since six, drank a few cups of coffee, and had a delicious slice of Panettone (a big slice of Panettone) and I will spend the rest of the day writing. It doesn't get much better than that. Panettone and coffee are perfect together.…
