Things that go bump…shiver…shriek!

Author Day with Rita Trevalyan

This blog will be about what to do while you're waiting for your edits. A lot of it is just marking time. You could do housework, but as semi-– disable as I am, there is a limit to what I can do. When I'm in NaNoWriMo mode, I always assign. from 10 AM to 10:30 AM as the time to perform household tasks. There are also other projects you can work on. I have two: one is my story about Camelot's Merlin the magician awakening in the 21st century after a nap of more than 1600 years. The second one is a story inspired by the death of rockstar David Bowie. If the words just won't come, I will engage in other activities. I have a number of coloring pages that I can print out and color. I can also read. Right now, on my Nook, I am reading a translation of the Aeneid| by Vergil. I am also reading a book titled Outwitting Writer's Block and other Problems of the Pen by Jenna Glatzer. It is a book I got from Writer's Digest. One idea that I got from this book is the "u…

Book Spotlight~ Elaine Cantrell's Fortuna

Image
Series Name: NA

Genre: romantic comedy

Publisher: Clean Reads

Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancé into the witness 
protection pro-gram would land her in a haunted house in a town that’s 
downright creepy. She’d have laughed if she had been told the guy who 
lives down the road might be her soul mate, not the man whose ring 
she’s wearing. Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los 
Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling 
a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new online business, life in the 
country is anything but boring.
Excerpt: My heroine goes to a garden party in costume.

“Why don’t you take Aimee and show her the new gazebo? It’s very nice.”

“Aimee?”

“I’d love to.”

Cade held out his arm to Aimee. “Ma’am, I would be delighted to show 
you the gazebo. Do take my arm. The ground is rather uneven.”

“Why, thank you, sir.”

As they strolled toward the gazebo, Aimee allowed the setting to 
mesmerize her and capture her imagination. What would it h…

Will moved cl…

Meet the Character day with Kelli A Wilkins' Ashton Bailey

Image
Please give a warm welcome to Ashton Bailey, the hero from Dangerous Indenture by Kelli A. Wilkins. Today we sit down and see what makes him tick.
Q: So tell us about yourself. What got you in the cross hairs for your author? Where do I start? I’ve been described as “a bit of a rogue” by people: I’m opinioned, have a biting wit, tend to be a bit sarcastic… and yet, I’m utterly charming… when I haven’t been drinking too much at the local tavern. (Laughs.) Of course, these “good qualities” have driven members of my stuffy family utterly mad. They referred to me as the “drunken whoremonger with no sense of responsibility”—but I had my reasons.
When Kelli was writing about me, she was kind enough to see past all of my so-called faults and realized that deep down I’m a sensitive, caring individual who just needed to find my way in the world. Meeting Shauna, the love of my life, changed me for the better.
Q: What was it that drew you to your mate? Shauna Farrow is feisty, clever, and pretty. M…
