Have you ever noticed the blogs listed in my sidebar? If you have awesome! If you haven’t then I want you to consider taking a moment and visiting those Partners and helping show your support. When I first began my page I learned, from bloggers like Jason at Harsh Reality, to build a community. My belief is that if each of us focus on building a community then it makes every blog that much stronger.
Take a few minutes and visit those bloggers in my sidebar and say hello. I guarantee you most of them will return the effort and engage with you! The more you network, the faster you will grow!
My guest today is one of the very first I met on Facebook and he has been one of my most supportive friends. We have the same sense of humour and all Rick’s books are funny and off the wall. He’s written a wide range of quirky novels, including talking dogs who operate in gangs, the topsy-turvy world of black plantation owners employing white slaves, to a man who loves his vacuum cleaner. You never know quite what to expect when you open one of Rick’s books.
Instead of a photo of the author, here is the Dog – his owner is very shy. Over to you:
I decided to enter the world of writing a few years ago because I knew I couldn’t spend all of my time eating banana Moon Pies and waiting for Sandra Bullock to wake up one day and deciding that she was head over…
So this happened today! I’m split equally in three ways. Gratitude (thanks Kim!), excitement, and obssession are all three pulling me in their direction!
I can’t believe I have my next cover!!!
I think this makes it all real (or sureal, take your pick!) Four novels in four years, I’m setting my goals and then killin’ them. You can probably just call me ‘the goal slayer’ from here on out.
Also, on a side note, completely off the subject — I’m about 92% sure that I’m going to get a tattoo on the back of my neck that says ‘Edit Me’… If anyone has any thoughts on that then please share, I’d really love some input, or encouragement. Lol really though, my husband thinks it’s silly so a few votes in my favor might shut him up a little because we all know that I’m going to do what I…
There is a truth that exists in this world–no one owes you anything. It doesn’t matter if you are different, odd, weird, pretty, ugly, successful, smart, dumb, etc. Life owes you zero, nada, nothing, zilch. You can pout and complain all you want, but it isn’t going to change your circumstances.
You can hope, wish and beg.
Ultimately you have a decision to make. Will you be the hunter or will you be the hunted? Are you a wisher or are you a doer? And make no mistake about it, it is a decision. Trust me when I say that there have been people far worse off than most of my readers who have dug themselves out of less than nothing to reach their goals.
Which choice do you make today? Do you get outside today and walk even though your legs scream at you to stop? Do you choose to eat some vegetables today instead of fast food? Do you choose to eliminate pay television today in order to reduce your debt? Do you choose to read the Power of Habit today instead of watching television?
It’s release day!!! Well in the UK it is, according to Amazon The Suspenseful Collection Volume One is on sale now! I have the pleasure (and satisfaction he he), of saying this seven hours before my partner in crime. Hold onto your e-readers people… There are some excellent thrilling stories. I had a ball, picking up where Didi left off as author two, and writing the start as author one in our first anthology. No matter what I wrote, I loved every moment and I’m so proud of us both.

As a reader, I get lost in the lyrical words of authors and story-lines, often entranced by the images they portray. This kind of imagery creates an addiction for narratives- intense, dramatic, romantic, provoking and all the above. I crave the emotion and thoughts put together in stories, and will stay up all night to see it through.
I’ve never realized that this kind of joy, alters the way I view my life. It’s an amazing tool we have, to string together sentences in endless forms, having the ability to capture a heart and mind, and teach them just as well. But what I am caught up in, is the emotional high, which then turns into personal desire. I expect my life to playout as though a book might, not in the characters and their specific endeavors, but the ease of knowing there’s a plot, and it must end.
The Stranger is a short read about a woman named Julie Williams, the owner of Uncommon Grounds coffee shop, the wife of a loving man and two grown children who are doing well for themselves. Julie’s life is stable and put together and everything seems fine except the feelings Julie has of her mother.
Margie Smith has just passed and there are only a few people at her funeral. As the minister gives his words, it becomes apparent that both Julie and her husband did not like Margie. She is remembered as a mean woman who cared about only herself. Not only does Julie and Mark feel this way, but even Stella Green, the nurse who worked for Margie, found the woman difficult. It seems…
