In what I hope to become a regular feature (if I don’t wander off again), I’m combining two of my favorite things: thrift store finds and book sales. A note for those who aren’t familiar with me. I love thrift stores, adore them. I buy stuff there as gifts for others, supplies for crafts, clothing because… c’mon, $3 for a shirt with the tags still on it?, and books. All the books! So, when I poke fun at the stuff found at thrift stores, I’m not trying to be mean or making a comment on those who shop there out of financial necessity. However, if you’ve ever gone to a thrift store, you know there are always a few… shall we say unusual items. Those are the true gems and what I hope to target. So… today, I focus on shoes!

Been a while since I posted because… life. But I thought I’d hop back in with a bit of flash fiction. Prompt came from Chuck Wendig. Hop over, read the prompt, give it a whirl, and then read all the other entries. This is mine. Continue reading “Flash Fiction: A Hero”
2017 has been hard. Hubby’s job fizzled and he was stuck searching for a job without warning in a very expensive area to live. When none of the possibilities moved fast enough, we had to leave the PNW that we loved to return to the southeast (which isn’t quite so beloved). Even reading wasn’t easy. Most of the books I read were re-reads of previous favorites while the new books failed to wow me. Continue reading “Monday Mumbles: End of Year Recap 2017”
Hot on the release of Journey to a Dream and Subject 5691: Petri, I’ve started the rewrite of the second in the Edgeworld Chronicles – Draxton’s Destiny. Most of this story is already written, but it’ll need some revisions, some reorganizing, and some expansion if it’s to fit seamlessly into the overarching plot. It’ll also explain some things left hanging in Petri’s story. I’ve included a tentative blurb (not finalized) and an excerpt from the new first chapter. Enjoy!

An idea scrolled across my social media feed a while back and bounced around in my skull for a bit (as these things are wont to do). Take a book, wrap it up, give only the barest bits of info on it, and then give it away. What a groovy idea! I’m weird. I like shopping for things I’ll give away. So, I rushed out, grabbed some books – some I’ve read and some I haven’t – and wrapped them up. Who wants one? Continue reading “Blind Date with a Book #1”
Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. This month, I’m shining the spotlight on a series that branched off an insanely popular Urban Fantasy series. Take one insanely dominant werewolf enforcer second only to the Marrok, add in a brutalized female werewolf who falls outside of pack hierarchy, and you’ve got a match guaranteed to provide a few ulcers to even the most powerful wolf. If you love Mercy Thompson, you really need to check out Alpha and Omega. Continue reading “Rec a Series: Alpha and Omega”
Just seven more days until the release of my sci/fi space boys. I’m giddy with excitement because I love these guys so much. Petri is an Amazon exclusive and will be available for reading via Kindle Unlimited. But, with only a week left until release, I’ve included another promo pic above and a snippet below. Enjoy!
