A Horrible Ending or a Beautiful Beginning…how do you see it? #RRBC #RWISA

Watch Nonnie Write!

Goodbye 2017

(I wrote this post in January but forgot to publish it.  Now, in May, you get to enjoy it).

Yesterday I spent a full two hours sitting in my husband’s recliner, watching television.  Now, although this may seem mundane to you, let me explain why it was amazing for me.

I never have time in my days to just sit and watch television anymore.  Although I’ve never been a huge ‘tuber,’ there are some shows that I just couldn’t live without…in my old life.

Lifetime Television was once my closest friend.  That’s not to say that I don’t have very dear friends, because I do, but, I would spend countless hours on the treadmill, watching back to back Lifetime movies.  There’s a rule in my home that I can’t watch television unless I’m exercising, and back then, I think I was exercising more, just to watch my shows.

Book:  DESTINY’S PLAN

Blurb:

One empty bus seat. Two aching hearts. A future written by Fate…

When Raquelita Muro’s overbearing mother rips her and her little sister away from their beloved Papa, one tiny, rebellious corner of Raquelita’s heart is grateful that the bus is crowded, and the only seat left is out of Mama’s sight. Next to a handsome young man.

Matthew Buchanan’s beautiful traveling companion is more than something pretty to look at before he ships out for Viet Nam. Deep in her sad, whisky-colored eyes he glimpses a new dream to replace the ones he’s leaving behind. It breaks his heart to leave Raquelita in her tyrannical mother’s hands, but she gifts him with a token of love and a tender promise to exchange letters in secret.

But their first, shy “hello” has reached the ears of Fate. Fate is in the mood to see how far it can push two lonely hearts—to the brink of temptation, desperation, and despair—before they break. Perhaps beyond any hope of healing…

Book:
Blurb: 

Jerry Winslow is about to realize his entire life has been a lie. He never was a regular family man, living an ordinary existence in San Diego. His life was a deception crafted by his parents to keep him alive. But now, the Emperor of the Universe has discovered their hiding place and they must run for their lives.

The Emperor and his evil master are trying to achieve total dominion over the forty-five realms of the universe. First, they must kill the last Knights of Winterpast, including Jerry Winslow, his father and son. Once they are dead, nothing will stop evil from enslaving all life.

Whistlestop is a tale of friendship, family and faith; set in an eleven-dimension universe where fantastical beings and magical powers are commonplace. While dark and foreboding at times, it is ultimately a story about a family’s love for each other and their friends; and just perhaps saving the universe.

G-MOM PICK OF THE MONTH – 5 of 5 Stars – “TO THE TOP” BY DEONTAE HENDERSON

You are one of those people who surf the net and becomes elated when you find a gem?  I get excited to the point of wanting to share my big discovery with everyone. Do you want to share in my excitement? Read on!

Rocks from Pinterest.com

Looking for new stories, I came across an interview that a blogger did with a college student from Tennessee State University. His name is Deontae Henderson. Immediately, I re-blogged his story to my page. I went to high school in Louisiana and grew up with tons of children with the last name of Henderson. Naturally, I  researched his social media sites to see if I knew him. Even though I did not find him in my family tree, the connection was there. He must be…

Drillbooks – Meet Duncan Malone

Rhani DChae

As I mentioned before, the main purpose of my doing these Drillboks blog posts is to push my brain past the writer’s block that’s been kicking my butt for the last 2 years. I don’t know why I’ve had SO much trouble finishing this book, but I have. I think a large part of it is that I’m afraid #Winter won’t live up to what #Shadow started. I don’t know. But whatever the reason, I’ve spent way too much time trying to finish this book and not enough time working on other projects.

But, since I’ve started doing these posts, I’ve actually gotten quite a bit done. It’s anyone’s guess if the book will actually be finished by the end of February but at least things are moving along.

You’ve already read some bits and pieces about the people and places in Decker’s world. Today, I’m going to introduce you…

A Few Words With June the Prune!

The final stop on Gracie Bradford’s Spotlight Tour.

The Indie Spot!

I am thrilled to welcome #RRBC Spotlight Author Gracie Bradford’s June the Prune to The Indie Spot. June is the main character from Gracie’s book June the Prune & Lady Bird: Cancer Stinks. So, without further delay, take it away, June…

SMART STRATEGIES FOR SMART CHARACTERS

Interviewer: You have an interesting name. Do you know why you were named June?

June: My mother and her sisters were born in June. I was born in June. My mother probably could not think of another name.

Interviewer: Do you have any brothers or sisters?

June: Yes, I have one brother, Alex. I must take care of him because our Mom isn’t always available. I am younger than Alex. He should be taking care of me as my big brother. But, he is a little slow. I do what needs to be done around the house to keep the peace.

#RRBC Spotlight Author Gracie Bradford talks about favorite sites and apps

There is some useful information here from Gracie Bradford…

Bette A. Stevens, Maine Author

I WISH SOMEONE HAD TOLD ME

It is such a pleasure to introduce this “up and coming author,” Gracie Bradford, and her book about a child with brain cancer. The beagle, Lady Bird, takes on a leading role in this short story. Learn about the role of pet therapy in the healing process.

During her discovery journey and literary, educational adventure, Gracie relates that she stumbled upon software and websites that have proven to give a new meaning to work simplification. She used some of these in her business but discovered they could also be used with some of her writing projects. Most seasoned authors are already familiar with the apps and sites, but the “up and coming authors” may find some of these to be useful. She doesn’t use all, just those that she has the skill set to understand and can give a return on her investment…

#RRBC Spotlight Author, Gracie Bradford

Gracie’s tour continues today…

Life As I Know It

Hello, bloggers!

I am pleased to welcome this month’s RRBC Spotlight Author, Gracie Bradford


DO YOU LOVE WRITING BUT HATE SELLING?

Me too. Indie authors must be a jack of all trade. Like it or not, indie authors are entrepreneurs. Your book is a product. Your marketing is a service. Who has time to write and sell? Most authors prefer to write and leave the selling to someone else. Is it necessary to be hands-on in the selling process? As a businesswoman, I say absolutely.  It takes far less time to write than to sell. Once the book publishes, the most difficult challenge begins.
