I know that religion and politics are the two things you aren't supposed to bring up at a dinner party or in polite conversation, but I've always enjoyed thumbing my nose at things like that. It should be fairly obvious from my blogs which way I lean, but if it isn't I just want to say that I am a very liberal...

Nicely put together my dear

@ainoa thank you so much, my dear! xo

I am so happy that I finally got my 2nd book out! It's the sequel to Arcanist's Lament and it's called Invoking the Fallout. I'm going to list the places it can be bought, either as an e-novel or as a physical copy. So far, I have sold 50 copies of my 1st novel; while that may not seem like a...

Well, my plans to have my 2nd novel out by the end of the month are looking less and less likely. I have been fighting with the cover to get it uploaded to both sites different specs for over a week now, and to say I'm frustrated would be a colossal understatement. I just uploaded it to both sites for the umpteenth time, and...

@ainoa thank you my dear! I hope your weekend is lots of fun as well xoxo

Sunday night I got to bring my dog Jax home with me. We (my ex-wife and I) had gotten him when he was only 4 months old, and he will be turning 14 in April. He is an Aussie border collie mix, which if you know anything about dogs, the fact that he is this size and this old is wonderful, and it doesn't...

@midnightsun thank you! And illness is just part of life, and not one to be feared or avoided :)

Exactly☺️

So, since I had finished my detective novel that I had been working on, I had decided that it was time for me to release the 2nd novel in my Chronicles of the Dragon Kings series, Invoking the Fallout. I had already revised it and finalized it a couple of weeks ago, but as they say, you can't ride two horses at the same...

This month has not been kind to celebrities, with all the deaths since Lemmy back before the New Year: Natalie Cole right after that, then David Bowie, Alan Rickman, the guy who played Grizzly Adams, and now Glenn Frey yesterday. I read a post that said (jokingly), since Terry Pratchett died Death has been out of control and is just snatching up anyone he finds...

Exactly!!! It's the same as watching a sports game and feeling anxiety for your favorite team, or crying in a sad movie. We have these lovely little buggers called mirror neurons which link to emotion and enoathy. You're right, ta only human! And without them our lives would be drastically different.

@midnightsun thank you! There's nothing wrong with feeling connections

So I just read the blogs that fear and skull (not tagging them if they want to keep what was said private) posted, and I'm very taken aback. Granted, I didn't have quite the level of interaction with those two ladies that a lot of you did, but it's still shocking to realize that someone who you have talked to for a...

That's too bad. I hear you and I feel for them. There must be something there that makes them think they need to behave in such a way. I am honest and fairly blunt. Take me as I am or not at all it doesn't matter to me. That took me a long time to get too to. ;)  Hopefully we all take the best path whatever that may be. ❤

@user8992 this is very true, and I do wish them well, since it takes too much energy to wish them ill :)

Today is my 42nd birthday; I know the answer now, so now I just need to figure out the question (been years since I read that, but bonus points if you get the reference LOL). Yesterday I went to my friend's music event and also celebrated mine and my GF's birthday (we are only 4 days apart, I'm the older one). A...

sheashannara:
@midnightsun thank you so much! And yes, it was very nice my good friend xo

So, as I mentioned in my previous blog I finished my latest work and sent it out to my beta readers. Normally, I would take at most a week off until I started doing something again, but I was contacted yesterday by a friend. They are doing a play about what takes place at a comic convention for a local theater next month, and so...

This is a really beautiful blog. Hope the theater thing goes well :)

@ekka thank you so much! I hope so too :)

Today, I finished the first edit on my fantasy noir detective novel, Shadow's Ascendance (the title of this blog is my word count), and sent it out to my 3 beta readers. If you don't know, a beta reader is someone you trust to read the novel, to help spot any mistakes or grammar errors, and to give you constructive criticism. It's...
