    • Yay! Wonderful to hear, Teri (we all know how dreadful Mondays can be). Thanks for the book birthday wishes and I hope Things Old and Forgotten turns this Monday into a Friday (or at least a hump day, LOL).

  1. Congratulations, Mae! I grabbed my copy yesterday, and cannot wait to dig in! And did I mention that drop-dead gorgeous cover? I absolutely LOVE it! Here’s wishing you a kajillion sales, my Penderpal! 🤗💗

    • Yippee! Thanks for grabbing a copy and for the wonderful comment, bestest PenderPal! I think the cover speaks to the type of stories inside (or at least that was the goal, LOL). I’m so glad you like it!

      • I not only like the cover, but I started reading the first story at lunch (almost finished it, but had to get back to work) and I have to say, I’m thinking it might be your very best writing EVER, and that’s saying a lot. There were some truly elegant lines that caught my eye. I’m a word person (can’t you tell?) and I LOVE beautiful use of language. I had to stop to underline several phrases that painted especially gorgeous pictures for my mind’s eye. If the rest of the book is up to the standards of this story (and I see no reason to think it won’t be), I’m going to love every single page! GREAT job, my Penderpal! 🤗💗

      • WOW! You have me doing a happy Snoopy dance with that comment, Marcia. I’m beyond thrilled with that compliment.
        I love painting pictures with words. I’m so glad the images in A Once and Future Life resonate with you. ❤

      • They really did, Mae! I finished that one up during break, and loved it. And not just the imagery, either. I was really touched by the story. Then I finished Sadie, and it was SO cool! I’ll be starting #3 tonight, and definitely looking forward to it. 😀

      • Oh wow I didn’t even realize you had a comment for me, Mae! I came here to tell you that I just finished the book and I had so much fun! My favorites are Kin-Slayer are Guardian, though I enjoyed all of them immensely. Anyway, I left reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, and I’ll put up a blog post for your book soon! It’s a must-read! ❤️

Thank you so much for the reviews and also for letting me know which stories resonated with you most. I love knowing that. Your comment has me grinning ear to ear! 🙂

      • That’s actually a good habit! I’m mostly away on the weekends too, though not entirely offline. And I absolutely loved the book! It was really hard to pick a favorite but those two stood out to me because I was surprised by their twists, haha 😉

  2. Reblogged this on Mark Bierman and commented:
    Today I just wanted to help spread the word about a new release written by a very talented wordsmith, Mae Claire. She’s an auto buy author for me. When I was taking my writing course, they said to be sure to include a ‘golden nugget’ at least once per page. Well, Mae does this at least once PER PARAGRAPGH.
