Love These Reviews! #requiem #plparker #spaceopera #aliens #deg'Nara


As an author, nothing pleases me more than good reviews.  I've grown accustomed to the less than good reviews and have learned to take them with a grain of salt!  Not always easy but it comes with the job!

Reviews are so important and it isn't always easy to receive the reviews, or as many of them, as we'd like, but when we get those good ones - Wahoo!

Here are just a few I've received on Amazon for my latest novel REQUIEM, Book 4 in the Star Brides (Deg'Nara) Series.

"...Requiem is the latest installment of P.L. Parker’s Deg’Nara series. It has a lot going on with a fast-moving plot, a full cast of characters, action, adventure, suspense, intrigue, a space pirate, romance, and more. Requiem is a well-written story from start to finish." N.N. Light

"...I found this book to be a well written story and exciting. Characters are easy to relate to. Loved it." jumperboo2

"...The book grabs ahold and not only won't let go but refuses to let go. It truly is a must read for any one let alone a P. L. Parker fan." Double J

Keep those reviews coming if you've a mind to!

Happy Reading!

Double J's and Mama's Search for Bigfoot - Part 2 - Background History #bigfoot #paranormal #searchingforbigfoot

As a preface to our search for Bigfoot, I thought I'd give you a little family background history as to the beginnings of our interest. 

Rumor has it that when my Grandfather Bryan (no nonsense man) was working on the railroad in Canada, something big was on a ridge above them and was throwing rocks.  It would come into their camp at night and leave footprints. Grandpa was not one to make things up.  He grew up hunting and fishing and knew what the wilds held.

Another family addition to the search happened when I was 25.  We were having a family campout in Eastern Oregon and were camped below Elk Meadows near John Day.  We were sitting around the fire visiting when about 9:00 p.m., the elk starting whistling in alarm and then we could hear them stampeding. Then this loud and long roar, the scariest sound I've ever heard outside of TV or the movies, echoed down through the area.  My father, also a hunter and fisherman, stopped, stared into the dark and said "What the f$#% was that?"  It wasn't a bear, a cougar or anything he could identify.  I was so scared, I got up and went into the trailer. My son and his cousin were sitting up in bed and their eyes were huge. "What was that?" my son asked. I personally to this day believe it was Bigfoot and he was hunting the elk.

We will continue our search.

Double J's and Mama's Search for Bigfoot #bigfoot #paranormal #searchforbigfoot

Well, having an interest in Bigfoot and watching everything the TV has to offer on the subject, my son and I decided it was time to dip our feet into the Bigfoot pool.  We purchased trail cams, night vision goggles, night vision cameras, a speaker to blast out Bigfoot howls, and various other equipment we knew we needed to do this right (none of this, of course, I have any clue as to how to use).

So loaded with all this techy equipment, we embark on our very first Bigfoot search.  We had planned a camping trip to Stanley, Idaho, and with all the wilderness and rugged areas up around there, we felt it was a perfect place to begin our search.

First night out, we went in the dark.  Note to self: don't do that again. Was too scared to even get out of the pickup and was terrified for my son who was
wandering around in the dark knocking on trees and howling.  As my son's partner in crime, I wasn't handling the situation too well.

Second night out, went out a little earlier, found a really good spot and set up a trail cam.  Made some knocks and son howled some.  Amazingly enough, he got a knock back and something responded to his howls!  Talk about the luck of the beginner! (I hid in the truck!)

We collected the trail cam the next morning but haven't had time to really look through the 50 pictures the trail cam took.  Who knows?  We might have gotten something.

Anyway, we did what we wanted to do and are going to keep it going.  I have to admit, I'm not as adventurous as I'd like to be. The thought of being alone in the woods looking for a creature 3 times my size and then some has me somewhat nervous but I will never be too far from the truck just in case.

Wish us luck!
