Hiatus »

Hiatus. That’s how I think of this is. It’s not so much that we are coming to the end of a great idea as that we are taking a little break from it. We’ve decided to stop blogging here for now, knowing full well we might be back some time in the indefinite future. We’re [...]

Monday’s Question »

Today’s question is very simple. Who is your absolute favorite author and why? I’d have to say that mine is Shakespeare. His insight into the human condition and mastery of the English language is timeless and without equal.

To Self Publish or Not to Self Publish? »

My friend, Lori Brighton, has a new book out that she self-published. I read the book, I critiqued the book and I enjoyed the book and that got me thinking… (when I say that, my husband says UH OH!). I have a book that’s all finished and although I haven’t queried e-publishers with it yet, [...]

Dark Characters »

I found a dark character that intrigues me. He’s a serial killer. His fictional name is Dexter Morgan. Dexter is the main character in a series of five books written by author Jeff Lindsey. Showtime has taken the character and created a hit show around his life as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami-Dade [...]

Travelogue-Nepal »

As most of you know, I’ve been in Dhaka for almost four weeks now with dh, who is working here, and the ‘boys’. Bangladesh is as opposite to Luxembourg as night is to day, at least night and day are close neighbors. It takes a day of traveling, connection time included, for us to get [...]

Writers and Weight Gain »

I realized I was unhappy with myself when I went to get blood drawn last week for routine tests.  The nurse asked me to step on the scale and I declined until she told me it could mess with our insurance as the insurance company encourages us (I mean threatens!) to take this yearly test.  [...]

Talking about Gerbils »

I can’t believe I put on my blog that I would be talking about gerbils here today. Frankly, it was off the top of my head, and I had every intention of changing it, but it took me too long getting around to it, so here we are. Gerbils. We are fresh out of gerbils [...]

Wednesday Weirdness — This cake’s got eight reasons to either love or hate it »

I’ve got a deliciously weird picture for you all today. One of my favorite oddities when looking up pictures are photos of strange and bizarre cakes. Being a Redwings fan, I’d be all over this cake. But all weirdness aside, the work is very impressive. I can only wish to decorate a cake with so [...]

Monday’s Question of the Week: Writing–A Guilty Pleasure? »

Okay, so I’m a stay at home mom.  I try to balance piano lessons and homework, play time and  housework.  When I’m in the writing ‘zone’ I don’t really want to stop.   But then someone comes into the room.  “Mom, I need….” , “Mom, she hit me…”, “Honey would you…” And I stop.  The muse has taken [...]

Judging a book by its cover… »

My alter ego recently had a book published.  The title and the cover art would lead the reader to believe it’s something that it isn’t.  The description of the book however does NOT indicate these things.  So, that leaves the reader in an age old quandary.  Do I judge this book by its cover or [...]

Without further ado (using the glory of random.org), the winners of the free copy of Wings of Desire are: Keena Kincaid and Sandra [...]

Wednesday Weirdness – Pumpkin PC »

Hi all! As most of you are aware, I am one of those technophiles. I’ve worked in the IT field for almost 15 years. One of my favorite things to Google is interesting computer case mods. One of these days, I’m going to try my hand at designing my own case mod because I’m a [...]
