Calling Authors Who Need Book Reviews

Listen up - all you author's out there. If you want a thorough, honest review of your book you'll be interested in this post. The following site does book reviews for indie authors, but the book must be published and available on Amazon. They don't take every genre either - but they do take most of them. You'll have to check the following link for all the details. The main thing here is to be patient and professional when you list your book. You'll need to give book title, author name, publisher, genre, page count, a short synopsis, a reason why your book should be picked for review and a link to the book on Amazon. Good luck everyone! Here's the link:

And remember, it takes awhile to get reviewed, but it's free and we all need reviews, right?

Thanks to all who joined me on Book Brew in Nov

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to thank everyone who came over to take a look at my excerpt that was part of the Book Brew event over at Coffee Time Romance and More Book Blog. And congrats to Sandra Cox,the winner of my medieval fantasy book: The Medallion - Book One - The Prophecy.

Now the nanowrimo is coming to a close again this year and I barely got anything written on the novel I started. Just ended up with way too much on my plate, unfortunately. I hope the rest of you that entered did better than I did.

Time to bundle up and hunker down for the dreaded winter. It's supposed to be 14 here tonight! I hate that! Already counting the days until spring, but I know the trees need to rest.

Fall Is Upon Us - Is this good or bad?

That all depends on your state of mind of course.

Yes, I've been slacking again unfortunately, but I'm just too darn busy at the moment to keep up with everything I have going. Maybe that's a good thing because fall is here and that's not a happy thought for me. I hate having to play with the clocks. What a bunch of silliness that is. Now it's dark way too early for me and even dark lately when I've been getting up in the morning so that I can accomplish everything I have to fit into the day. Before long it is getting dark again and so early now. It doesn't seem like it was this dark at 5:30 pm by Nov in other years, but it must have been.

At least I can be thankful for the nice few days we've had lately - weather wise. So sunny and mild - no jacket needed. Now I can shout about that! But it won't last. They say we have a cold front coming by Mon. I imagine I'll have to drag out all my stuff and cover the plants soon. So far we haven't been below 40 at night and I wish it would stay that way, but I know better.

Soon it will be time to tuck in and just wait until spring. At least we still have leaves on the trees, actually still some of them are green too. I guess that's good. But around here all it takes is one good wind storm and it will knock off even the green ones. But I could live in a colder place. Although I was cursing the other day when I brought in my garden ornaments and put them in the garage for the winter, along with some tropical specimens I've moved from place to place. It would be a shame to let them freeze at this point. Anyway I had my hands too full, like I always do, and tried to carry too much at once and dropped a turtle and broke it. It's head and a leg snapped right off when it hit the tile floor. I was so mad, but mostly at myself for not making two trips to the garage, instead of one. I was so frustrated that I live in a place where putting things away in the winter is a concern. The tropics were looking real good about then as they will be again when the snow gets here. Ugh! I'm dreading that! But there's nothing I can do about it at the moment. Someday I'll move further south and when I'm still young enough to enjoy it, I hope, or to even care.

OK before this gets too depressing I better sign off. It's past my curfew anyway already. Never enough hours in a day. I think that will be engraved on my tombstone one day along with "normal is only a state of mind" since my husband is always telling me to act normal. So what exactly is normal anyway? I bet everyone you ask will have a different explanation for that one. But that's a whole other subject I can't get into right now.

Night all. Be blessed.
