Good morning, y’all! Welcome to Wednesday and the Weekly Blog Challenge sponsored by the fine folks over at Long and Short Reviews. This week’s topic: things I collect. So, honesty time here.

The Love Language

Good morning, y’all! I’m running late again this week. Seems to be my norm lately. I’m not sure if it’s that I have too many irons in the fire or I’m just distracted. Maybe both? I digress! Onward. This week’s topic of discussion for the Wednesday Weekly Blogger Challenge sponsored by Long and Short Reviews …

Times They Are A-Changin!

Good day, readers and insecure writers! The first Monday totally sneaked up on me. Times they are a-changin’…I think that’s a lyric from some song or other that I can’t recall the name of or the rest of this morning. It’s been a wild week! And a busy month. Since last time we met, I’ve …

From Alpha to Zulu: Life as a Military Bride, Echo

Echo is for: Enlisted Life I’ve been writing military romance for many years now and reading it even longer. I’m picky when it comes to who I’ll read when it comes to military romance because I lived military life and I have a few sticking points when it comes to how it’s written. I’ve deduced …

May Old Glory Fly

Photo by Todd Trapani on Pexels.com One of the things I really miss about living aboard base is the constant presence of the American flag. Today being Flag Day, I thought I’d talk a bit about the stars and stripes, Flag Day, and what it stands for. The first Flag Day was celebrated in 1877 …

Just a Quickie

I have to tell y’all I believe it takes an enormous amount of talent to pull off a short story or novella. I mean, as a writer, when taking on such a feat, you’re agreeing to give your readers a complete story in a condensed form. You agree to supply the beginning, middle, and end …
