BOOK & BLOG BLOCK PARTY

BOOK & BLOG BLOCK PARTY

MY “DAUGHTER” IS ABOUT ONE MONTH OLD NOW !!!



Since I’m participating in the Rave Reviews Block Party today Friday, April 28, 2017, let me get a formality out of the way. I’ll be selecting four winners today, and the prizesare:

2 – KINDLE Editions of “I Kissed a Ghost”

2 – KINDLE Editions of “Micro Fiction – An Anthology
 
NOTE: You’ll need to leave a comment to be eligible.  If you don’t win. I hope you’ll consider getting a copy as a gift or yourself.

While I hope you’ll consider get a copy of either of my two books, so I can fund some of my two writing endeavors “His Darkest Secret” [an adult Contemporary Romance] and “The Secret of the Well” [a MG/YA Urban Fantasy].

For those of you who have followed my blog here on a regular basis will know, about a month ago I decided to allow my steamier, erotic side [Kathryn Heart] to come out of hiding since I’d completed writing about 52% of my debut erotic, shapeshifting, GLBT novella entitled “The Transformation.”

The strange thing is that the moment Kathryn got on line with a blog, FaceBook and Twitter accounts, I’m allowinf her to finish writing a debut erotic novella I had started entitled “The Transformation.” Since then I’ve gotten an idea for another erotic novella “Your Hubby-Sitting Company.”

If you’re interested in connecting with my steamier side, you can find Kathryn’s side and more information at:


And if you’re interested in me I’m at:


As you can probably tell the group that is holding this event is quite supportive and if you’re interested in possibly joining it, you can check it out at, remember to mention my name if you do decide to join:



Hoping to see many of you there.

STATUS REPORT # 101


Well to start with I’m very happy to say that my steamier, erotic side, “my daughter” Kathryn Heart, has ordered PROOF copies of her first erotic endeavors “Haiku Becomes Erotic.” And if all goes well, a KINDLE conversion will be order and the book will be released shortly thereafter.

So, if anyone is interested in following the writing endeavors of my other half, Kathryn Heart, you’re welcomed to do so at:




With above I can once again return to my own writing endeavors as well as my reading/reviewing of books, which I’ve fallen behind in. I can also concentrate on doing a more timing and regular posting of on-going entries for the several series of posts I’ve been doing.


Having concentrated on the writing endeavors of Kathryn for as long as I have, I’m decided to start a new re-read and self-editing of my adult Contemporary romance novel, “His Darkest Secret.” I believe I’ll be looking at what I’ve written through a “new set of eyes.”

Lastly I’m about to start of new round of heavy duty marketing for each of my two books, as I need to raise funds to self-publish everything Kathryn and myself would like to publish.


Here’s the links to both of my books, which are available as a Paperback, KINDLE, and can be read for free as a KINDLE Unlimited download.

HAIKU HORIZON #10 - DROP


This week’s prompt from the Haiku Horizon site is “DROP” and here are my three Haiku response endeavors:  


 

Jill dropped her school books
Jack picked them up, gave back, smiled
Puppy love begins

 

Betsy was overweight
She dropped over hundred pounds
Boys think she’s gorgeous

 

Steep drop in Dow Jones
Wall street investors nervous
Will it go back up?

BOOK REVIEW # 2017-017 - WEDDING DREAMS


Reading the stories in this anthology, I couldn’t help but remember growing up when I was 13 years old that one of the songs I always heard being played on the radio in 1964 had been “Chapel of Love” being sung by The Dixie Cups. If you’re not familiar with the words because you’re too young, here are the lyrics.

 

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Gee, I really love you

And we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel of love

 

Spring is here, th-e-e sky is blue, whoa-oh-oh

Birds all sing as if they knew

Today's the day we'll say "i do"

And we'll never be lonely anymore because we're

 

Because goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Gee, I really love you

And we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel of love

 

Bells will ring, the-e-e sun will shine, whoa-oh-oh

I'll be his and he'll be mine

We'll love until the end of time

And we'll never be lonely anymore because we're

 

Because goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Gee, I really love you

And we're gonna get ma-a-arried

Goin' to the chapel of love yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Goin' to the chapel of love yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Goin' to

As you read the stories in this collection written by 20 best-selling authors, just allow yourself to fantasize you’re in the shoes of the female protagonists in each of these stories walking down the aisle to marry your guy of your dreams. As you do; this song should remind you of why you’re there and the HEA that waits afterwards.
 

To add to your reading enjoyment you’ve got deliciously sexy guys wish you could call your own, in a variety of cozy romances, thrilling international and holiday adventures, and sweet heart-melting stories. You’ve got your women who are looking for their second chance at a romance to brides who are seeking to get revenge on a previous failed romance.

With a wide variety such as this you’ll should definitely find at least a few stories to satisfy your taste; and at 99 cents for 20 great stories how can anyone go wrong, which is why I’m giving this collection and their authors 5 STARS.

STATUS REPORT # 100 !!!


WOW !!! This is a BIG STATUS REPORT for me as it is my 100th,

 

I knew I had a lot of my erotic side penned up inside of me, but I really didn’t know how much there was. My erotic side, the one I gave “birth”, Kathryn Heart, on March 25 has already finished compiling a collection of 250 Erotic Haikus, and has finally taken the first step in self-publishing it. And has already added over 15.5% towards the completion of an erotic novella I’d started back on 9/3/2016 with the last time I worked on it being 11/26.

 

With my erotic romance author “daughter” still taking up almost all of my time, leaving practically nothing left for me during the course of a day, my book reading/reviewing as slow down to more than a crawl, to a point where there’s actually none getting done at all; which surprising has not really affected my ranking on Amazon all that much. [Actually, I needed a break from doing this for a long time].

 

I really must make a concerted effort in getting my time back as I’ve got my own WIPs I’d like to working on again, as well as my blog here.

 

To find my “daughter’s” social sites you can go to:

 


 

Hope everyone had a JOYOUS Easter with your families. !!! :-) :-) :-)

STATUS REPORT # 99






While it doesn’t appear like I haven’t made a Status Report since March 14th [#98], I actually did on March 25th when I wrote about my making the decision to allow the steamier, erotic of me to come out of hiding. After running a quick poll through all of my media exposures I decided on the name this side of me would be using, and the next day I gave “birth” to my “daughter,” Kathryn Heart.



Since then, Kathryn has run amok writing and instead of taking over the completion of the erotic novella I had started, Kathryn started on a totally different project has already compiled a collection of 250 Erotic Haikus, which should now be released in the next ten days, if not sooner.

While my writing has apparently suffered slightly I’ve been able to read/review 5 books, whose reviews I had posted en masse on GoodReads, LibraryThing and of Amazon US/UK [where appropriate].

I’ve now got to sit down with myself to figure out a schedule where both of my identities can exist and do the things we’d like to within the same 24 hours. Perhaps allowing my erotic side to do what it would like to do might assist me in completing my adult Contemporary romance novel, “This Darkest Secret;” as Kathryn’s erotic creativity begins to blossom.

HAIKU HORIZON # 9 - SINK


This week’s prompt from the Haiku Horizon site is “SINK” and here are my three Haiku response endeavors:  


 

Friends get together

Mix many ice cream flavors

Eat kitchen sink

 

When I was baby

Mother wanted give me bath

It was in the sink

 

Take care in jungle

Must watch out for the quicksand

Step in it, you’ll sink
