The Things I Hold Dear

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. I absolutely hate trinkets. I don’t know where this loathe for trinkety things originated but I think it happened sometime between moves two …

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 …

Wander-lusting

Photo by Kristina Gain on Pexels.com Who could have predicted when the WWBC topics were chosen for this year where we’d be today? I’m sure the topic of travel is one a lot of folks’ minds today, particularly with a holiday weekend coming up here in the US. Technically the last place I traveled was …

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 …

Eight from an Untitled WIP #8sunday #wewriwa

My eight this week come from a currently untitled WIP I've had in my working folder for quite some time. Maybe in the near future these two will have their day in the spotlight.

The Things We Keep Hidden

Here I am just a few hours away from this month’s ISWG posting deadline and I’m struggling. How ironic, right? I think right now, though, the whole world is struggling. It’s hard not to struggle with at least one thing or other with the state of things right now. It makes one fearful of asking …

What Do Commas and a Simple Word Have in Common?

Good morning, y’all! Welcome to the Wednesday Weekly Blog Challenge sponsored by the good folks over at Long and Short Reviews. This week’s topic: things I wish I did better. Gravy! What don’t I wish I did better? LOL Oh! Wait! I got one… Saying no. Although I’m getting better at it now that I’m …

Eight From a Shortie #wewriwa #8sunday

As many of you may have figured out by now, I tend to post my eights from totally random sources. Some have come from current releases. Some have come from current works in progress. The truth is, I don't like to reveal too, too much of what I have going on, so I tend to …

A Nod and a Wink, Books Set Where I Live

I absolutely LOVE the topic for today’s Wednesday Weekly Blog Challenge! Thank you, Long and Short Reviews for not only hosting, but allowing us to toot our own state’s horn today (and maybe our own, too!). Books set in my city and/or state. Where do I start?! The first one which came to mind: Cold …

Eight from Reclaiming Raylyn, Just Released

My eight this week come from my just released military, second-chances romance, Reclaiming Raylyn, in which Gavin's buddy calls him out… “I think I have my life under control,” Gavin seethed. “Really?” Jay laughed and shook his head. “Right. That’s why Andy and I have been babysitting her all summer for you? And it totally …
