Introduce Yourself – Introducing Guest Author Hope Destiny

Pearls Before Swine!

Pearls Before Swine

Its that time of the week again!  Welcome to another edition of Introduce Yourself, a new and exciting blog segment of The PBS Blog dedicated to introducing to you new and established authors and their books.

Today I’d like to extend a warm welcome to Hope Destiny. Welcome to The PBS Blog! Let’s get started.

What is your name and where are you from?

My name is Latisha. I write under Tisha as well as the pseudonym Hope Destiny. I live in Orlando, Florida.

The Sunshine state! I love it. Your pseudonym is beautiful. What made you decide on this name in particular?

I was airing out my dirty laundry to the world about what I did when I was younger that I shouldn’t have been doing as well as the violations I endured and my feelings about my parents, and I just didn’t want any family members to know…

ANGELIQUE CONGER

Lucinda E. Clarke!

This week’s author came up with a question many of us might have thought about for a moment and then dismissed it as one of those unexplained events.  Angelique Conger took this one step further and wrote a whole book about it. I think it’s a really novel (excuse the pun) idea. In Angelique’s own words …

Have you ever wondered about Eve? I did. I wanted to know how she managed life in a new world. How did she have that first child by herself, did someone help her? Then I wondered, how many children did she have? And how did they think about writing? And, did they live in a cave or in the open or build a house? All these questions left me wondering. The only way I could find the answers was to write a book.

I’ve lived a while, I’ve thought about this a long…

Today’s Featured Reblog is…Don Massenzio’s Blog!!

Don Massenzio's Blog

This is a reboot of one of my most popular posts from 2016 in my blogging incarnation. The words in this post are just as true today as they were when it was posted. I’ve made some updates based on what I’ve learned along the way.


indie If you are like me, you are aware of the thousands of other authors that are in the indie-author universe on social media platforms. We all belong to groups on Facebook and we promote our books, blogs, giveaways, and events. We start to see the same names over and over relentlessly touting their work.

As I first entered the indie author world, I viewed all of these authors as people that were competing for my readers. I wanted to out-promote and out-sell all of them. Over the past two years, however, my view has changed. Instead of viewing my fellow authors as competitors, I have come to…

August 2016 Reading List

I love book lists!!

It was John Wooden that said, “Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible.” Nothing can replace the Bible and all of its purity, richness, and treasure. No other book can transform your life like God’s Word. However, we should also be learners of all things, including people, places, and things. My goal is to broaden my scope of reading in the next few months, but here is my list for August. Be Blessed! Be Revealed!

Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth. Grit is the number one determiner of success. Gritty people focus on one thing and continue in the face of adversity. They may get disappointed, but do not remain so for long. They continue to practice despite setbacks because they are not only interested but also find meaning in what they do.

Introducing Misty Books!!

Have you got a mo?
It’s just that I’ve got a bit of news.
Oh you know already?

How, if you don’t mind me asking? After all I only just found out…
Sorry? You what?
You think that I’m going to tell you about the honeymoon!
Honestly, you lot!
All you every think of is sex.
Well it is, isn’t it – be honest.
In fairness I have done a blog about that little adventure, but I thought that I’d tell you about this other news first.
What?
No this is nothing to do with sex either.
Really! Get a grip!
And no, that’s not a euphemism for anything.
Yes, I know I wrote a blog entitled ‘Sexual Healing‘ the other week, but I’m not going to make a habit of it.

O.k? Are we clear now?

Right then.
Back to business.

Thinking of previous blogs, do you…

Oh, hello, nearly missed you there – huddled up the corner like that.
Do you want me to..?
No.
Oh, o.k.
Well I’ll just sit here for a bit if you don’t mind.
No, I won’t say anything.
I’ll be nice and quiet.

Dum, de dum de dum.
Pardon?
Oh sorry, I didn’t realise I was humming, no.
Nor drumming my fingers on the table.
I’ll just…
Humming and drumming. Heh! I made a rhyme.
Oops!
Sorry again.
Yes – quietly.
Like a church mouse, eh?

Did you do it?
No, I know we agreed, but I was just curious.
About that thing you said you were going to do.
The New Year resolution, yes.
That.
Did you!
Really!
And how did that work out then?
Oh dear!
Still, at least you tried.
Well yes, I suppose if you had a pound off everyone who said that you would be…

Food and Drink

I would like to introduce you to Fearless: Jo Ann Maxwell!!

Fearless

The holidays between Thanksgiving and New Year’s are typically a time when people overeat or at least eat things that they normally don’t eat. There’s a big turkey dinner, eggnog, cookies galore, special desserts, family gatherings, more big meals, football games, and any other celebrations that people can think up.
Since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, I’ve tried to really watch what I eat. I try to eat more fruits and vegetables, such as eating the rainbow. I try to limit my white foods, such as sugar, flour and white potatoes. During this time of year it’s even doubly hard to watch what I eat. Too many cookies, too many pies, and just a lot of good sweets. Since each of those white foods is inflammatory, I know that if I eat too much, my legs and feet spasm and cramp more than they usually do.
Since moving to the…

Blogging Away – Louise Wise author of ‘Wide Awake Asleep.’

This is Misty Books!!

mistybooks

Let me take you forward in time.
It’s Christmas Day.
You’ve eaten way too much.
Hold on, you didn’t have sprouts did you? Did you!
Oh dear!
You’ve watched the Doctor Who Christmas Special and stood to attention whilst Madge has told us how horriblius her annus has been again.
On Boxing Day you’ve queued for ages to get to the local mall, only to find that thing you wanted hasn’t been included in the sale.
You’ve got back home to find that you have to sit through all of the Back To The Future films – in reverse order.
And – hang on, what’s this!
You’ve got Tuesday off too.
What you going to do now then?
Well I don’t know about you but after these time travelling analogies I’m going to be downloading Louise Wise’s new book, Wide Awake Asleep.

And here to tell you about it in…
