Am I Coming or Going?

Time travel is great, but how about the ability to split yourself and be several places at once? I’ve been guest blogging to get the word out about Shimmer, and today I’m over with mystery writer Kassandra Lamb and the rest of the gang at Misterio Press.  They asked me to write about Conner Prairie itself – the living history park that was the inspiration for Through the Shimmer of Time.  And as a bonus for you, I even included some of the mistakes I almost made! I felt like I was splitting myself when, at almost the same time, the uber-creative Coleen Patrick hosted my dilemma over just how much creativity I can really claim.  I thought it was Blog Stop #3, but gee, let’s go back and count.  No, it was #4, which means I’ve done . . . hmm, I’m not sure my brain has the energy to … Continue reading

There’s Sunshine on My Blog Today!

I was wowed last week by author and blogger extraordinaire Suzanne Stengl when she passed the Sunshine Award on to me.  Well, to ten of us, but who’s counting? So yes, in the midst of Midwest clouds and thunderstorms, the sun also shining! The rules of the Sunshine Award are: •    Include the award’s logo in a post on your blog. •    Link to the person who nominated you. •    Answer the 10 questions below. •    Pass the award on to ten (or however many you want) “Sunshine inspiring” bloggers. Ooh – does that mean I inspire sunshine? Cool! Here are the questions, along with as many answers as I’m able to come up with: Favorite Color:  I used to say “blue” automatically, but it seems to have morphed to purple.  Or red.  I’m wearing a lot of those these days (although I’ve got a few years to go before … Continue reading

Shrilugh: Great YA Fantasy by Myndi Shafer

I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of Shrilugh, by Myndi Shafer this weekend.  Not for the possibility of a book review (I only review books I like, and there was no guarantee I’d like it enough), but because Myndi is a blogging buddy.  She offered and I accepted. And then the problems began. I started it Saturday when chores and homework were mostly done.  I was still reading it in the car on the way up to visit the grandbaby.  I kept reading it late that night, which meant I didn’t get my Primary lesson done for church the next day, and the kitchen remained a wreck.  I read in snatches on a busy Sunday, and then finished it on Monday instead of working on my own novel.  But hey, at least I got my Shakespeare assignment done first! So . . . Shrilugh (pronounced shree-loo) has … Continue reading
