Those of you who follow me on Facebook will already know that I have been receiving calls regarding my recent ‘motor vehicle accident.
It is gratifying to know that people from the Indian sub continent are so concerned about my welfare and the seemingly endless ways in which they are prepared to go out of their way to help so that you can claim compensation for whiplash, sustained injuries, time off work, inconvenience, etc. All this is of course ‘entirely legal’, which I do find a little concerning because surely the last thing it would occur to you to say if something were entirely legal, would be that it was in fact ‘entirely legal’. Perhaps they should rephrase it and advise you that their main selling point might be a little ‘iffy in the right side of the law department.
So, suitably chuffed at…

The Finest Grain…

Cyranny’s Cove!

Cyranny's cove

“Just look at it”, he said
“The greatest moment
of the life of a tree.
All those years, capturing
sunlight, making it stronger
growing straight and true, sacrificing
itself in the end, for yet a more noble
existence.””Just feel the perfection” he said, running his
fingers along the surface of the flooring.
“Smooth, lacking knots, such beauty,
I’ve never before owned”.A voice wafted up towards him, a bit less
appreciative, than his noble thoughts.

“Are you going to do me again, or would
you rather make love to your precious flooring,
being Oak, no less, because this whole experience
is beginning to bore me a bit…….”

Father’s Day. He always started off the week leading up to Father’s Day coming up with all the possible excuses not to visit his father. A presentation that needed tweaking, a new romance that needed coaxing…something. However, when it came right down to it, he always made the trip; this year would be no exception. He sat on the edge of the hotel bed, staring at his hands, thinking about how different he and his father were. He slowly rotated his hands around looking at the well manicured nature of them, the pushed back cuticles, the perfectly trimmed nails and the buttery, softness of his hands, and he felt acutely ashamed. He clenched his fists, feeling his trimmed nails bite into his palms. He would wait until dark to make the trip, so there would be less chance of other visitors.

A few hours later, he walks out of the…

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…

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…

No Security Without Trust.

Horse Addict!

HorseAddict

This weeks Word Press Photo Challenge is the word  “Security”. How does that relate to riding a horse?  How “secure” do you feel on a horse?  Can you be secure if you do not trust the horse? Let’s face it, riding horses is dangerous.  People can die riding a horse. Well,to be precise they usually die or are injured when they come off the horse.  It can happen even to the best of riders.

Horses are prey animals. They have survived the millennia by being aware of potential dangers and being ready to flee in a heartbeat.  In my experience there are two types of horses. There are horses that perceive a danger and decide they must flee, immediately, and they must get rid of that person on top of them to do so. The rider is seen as an added danger.

The other type of horse is the one…

Later is not right now.

Later is the future.

Later is a dream,

a dream of hope,

a hope that I have a purpose,

a hope that I matter,

 a hope that someone loves me,

a hope that I will always be a good person,

a hope that I will have a later

a hope that I will be here tomorrow.
