Guest Post – Gloria Weber: E-book Covers (Historical Fiction)

As a writer, I like trying to write in different genres, because I love to read them and to push my limits.  As a reader, I try to vary my reading, because I like discovering new things to love.  Often, what I read I write. There's one exception: Historical Romance. I love reading knights falling … Continue reading Guest Post – Gloria Weber: E-book Covers (Historical Fiction)

Focusing my energies – WIPpet Wednesday/ROW80

I usually start with my WIPpet, but it relates to my ROW80 update, so I'll begin by saying my goals have taken a back seat this week, or should I say, all but my writing goals. I dedicated the time to working on my NaNo novel and things are progressing at a steady pace. I'm … Continue reading Focusing my energies – WIPpet Wednesday/ROW80

Not much of a progress report – ROW80

You may have noticed my absence on Wednesday, so I apologise I didn't have time to participate in either WIPpet Wednesday or ROW80. I've been preparing for the release of The Fifth Watcher, and juggling a busy workload, so this week has been chaotic to say the least! I almost didn't post today, because I … Continue reading Not much of a progress report – ROW80

Fire in their hearts

LHN shared this beautiful poem, for the daily writing prompt – Seductive Saturdays.

LOVE HAPPY NOTES - The Home of Inspiration, Happiness and Fun

Wanting more than whispers of affection, 
years plodding alone, needs veiled.
Below the shroud, two hopeful hearts wait.  

By chance they meet.

Beneath the words, True Love speaks:
integrity, devotion, joy, innocence, acceptance. 

Without warning, the dream is real.
Hearts full, they can breath.

We will stand together whatever we weather,
 joined but not tethered.
Care of each other, preceding all else. 

Regardless of circumstance, near or apart
we choose to be joined at the heart.’

The photo is unedited or cropped, (apart from the frame and copyright). It is a mystery to me how two fiery hearts photobombed my camera. I was in my element watching the fireworks with him, and taking photos … but when I saw this shot I was astonished and delighted to receive such…

Authors Supporting Our Troops 2015 #ASOT2015

This is an awesome project. I’m sure you’re as ready to get involved as I am.



Hard to believe we are only three months away from the official kickoff to the second year of Authors Supporting Our Troops. I figured now would be a good time to get everyone up to speed and explain the program again so I don’t have to spend so much time this year telling helpful people what we do and do not need to make this another successful year.

First off, we never really stopped collecting author-signed books, we just haven’t posted too much about it once the official end date of May 15th came and went. We collected 2,500 books from authors and publishers in the four months we promoted it. I think that is awesome.

Since then we’ve managed about 75 more books and sent out another shipment overseas to a soldier. the goal for 2015 is to break 3,000 books collected and shipped. We can only do that…
