My Help for January Blues - Playing With Publisher

January is such a blah month from my perspective. The holidays are over, long stretch to spring and basically not a whole lot to do. So, to help my January blahs, I've been playing with Publisher (as you can see from previous post), and today I made a promo page for my Riley's Journey Trilogy.  I like it!  What do you think?

Forge Ahead With Hope to 2019

I'd have to say 2018 wasn't one of my favorite years. The past five years haven't been so great either. Lost both my parents and my mother-in-law, brother-in-law had a stroke, hubby was dealing with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, subsequent AFIBS and then, this year in February, he had a stroke. Ultimately, he had to have a very rare form of brain surgery and then spent quite some time in a nursing home and then finally in late spring, he got to come home.  Added to all that, youngest son decided to join the Marines! Mommy is still wondering why. Been tough but my hope is that 2019 will bring some really positive changes to this downward slide I've been on.  Not complaining, as we all know, it can always get worse.

No New Years Resolutions other than to try to make 2019 a better year.   

Here's hoping that each of you have a wonderful 2019 and every year thereafter.  

Sending hugs.

Clueless at Christmas!

We've all had those significant others who are just clueless when it comes to Christmas gifts and I've had more than my share of the clueless and ridiculous, the worst of which was a float tube for fishing and I almost drowned the only time I went out in it. All these crazy Christmas gifts are the basis for my free read, The Christmas Diary.  Shhhhhhh - some of these incidents are based on my own personal experience and if you check out the dancer picture, you might see someone you recognize.

Thankfuls and Not Thankfuls - Tis the Season

charlie brown thanksgiving GIF by Peanuts  Tis the season - Thanksgiving at least - and we all have those precious things we are thankful for.  I have a short list:

- My family
- My friends
- My home, the state I live in, the city, etc.
- For surviving the past five years with my hubby still intact (cancer, stroke)

Another Great Review for ABADDON RISING

Another great review from "Whiskey With My Book":

"The story is nearly epic and the romance keeps the pace. I truly enjoyed every page of Abaddon Rising."

Thanks for the great review!

Vampires - Love 'Em or Leave 'Em

My childhood was filled with scary movies. My older sisters dragged me to every scary film there ever was, and back in my childhood, you could go to the Saturday matinee - which always involved two movies for the price of 20 to 25 cents per child.  It was a win/win situation for my family. Mom got some alone time and we kids got to go to the movie.  Although at times, I would rather have stayed home, given the amount of horror films I witnessed during that time of my life.  

Vampire movies were the bane of my existence, but I have to admit, now I love watching them.  

Nosferatu (one I have never seen) was a silent picture that was produced in 1922, the very first vampire movie. Ugly as sin and his image evoked the very heart of evil.  

Me, I'd rather watch a movie or TV series where the bad guy is a hunk - like Gerard Butler as Dracula.

Or, Alex O'Loughlin in Moonlight

Or, Alexander Skarsgard in True-Blood

Or, Luke Evans in Dracula Untold

Or Lyle Schmid in Blood Ties!

And for you male bloggers, who can forget Kate Beckinsale in the Underworld movies?  

So many to choose from so why waste your time on the hideous ones?

In the spirit of Halloween, I'm giving away an e-copy of Absolution! My first and only vampire love story.  Leave a comment to be entered to win!

Happy Halloween!
