Wrap-up of 2018 in #Books

My goal for 2018 was to read 25 books. I read 26! I know it was a small goal but with being a new mom, it was a good goal that could be met. My top favorite 10 from that list are: Shear Magic The Harbinger Delightfully Witchy Happily Chevalier Land of Stories The Nanny Song Aggravated Momentum The Things we learn when we’re … Read More Wrap-up of 2018 in #Books

Does writing speed matter? Does the word amount count? #authorthoughts

Writing speed. All of us know that it’s not about the word count or at least it shouldn’t stop us from continuing our WIP’s. We strive to meet the 50k count, 60k, 100k but is it about getting to that number? Or we strive to have a certain amount of chapters and get stressed out as soon as we get to the last one. … Read More Does writing speed matter? Does the word amount count? #authorthoughts

Why do authors write? #amwriting #amreading #books #author

Is it because we’re good at it? Is it because we enjoy it? Everyday, authors post about bookish things – well, the authors who blog anyway. We post about writing tips, about our own books, and about our author journey. Once in a while, we write about random stuff. But, that is blog posts. Why do we write books? I can’t talk for every … Read More Why do authors write? #amwriting #amreading #books #author

Something new coming soon!

Good news to my readers, friends, and fans! I have finished my next book project. It turned out to be a novella, but I love it, anyway! Here’s a possible book blurb. Tell me how much you love it! ———– Television Lied. Being a witch isn’t as cool “as seen on TV.” Twitching my nose doesn’t change my outfit and snapping my fingers doesn’t … Read More Something new coming soon!

23 days until release of Follow the Snowflakes- Post # 3 (see pinned post for contest rules) #swag #bookswag #contest #prereleaseparty @kernerangelina

  Rules The story happens someplace unnamed close to Chicago, Illinois. Why it is left unnamed? Easy. Because, a story like this can happen anywhere…well as long as there’s snow. ^_^ I live in California, but I have friends living in Chicago. Over the years, we had road trips and or Amtrak trips to see them. I have never been there during winter, only … Read More 23 days until release of Follow the Snowflakes- Post # 3 (see pinned post for contest rules) #swag #bookswag #contest #prereleaseparty @kernerangelina

24 days until release of Follow the Snowflakes- Post # 2 (see pinned post for contest rules)

Rules My main character Catherine (Cat) works as a manager at a bank. She deals with customer relations and event planning. Since the story starts on December 16th, 2017, she’s all about event planning and not customer relations. Anyway, I’m getting off topic. When one walks into a branch (at least in California), it’s all about the look. The tellers, the bankers, the managers … Read More 24 days until release of Follow the Snowflakes- Post # 2 (see pinned post for contest rules)

25 days until release of Follow the Snowflakes – Post # 1 (see pinned post for contest rules)

Rules I just love the holidays and one of my favorite holiday drinks is not eggnog, it’s Glintwein. It’s a mulled wine drink for adults. The idea goes back all the way to ancient Rome! Glintwein is a Russian name for it, and other cultures call it Glühwein (Germany), Glögg, gløgg, glögi (Nordic countries), vinho quente (Brazil), greyano vino (Bulgaria), and karštas vynas (Lithuania) … Read More 25 days until release of Follow the Snowflakes – Post # 1 (see pinned post for contest rules)
