Autumn Reading: Murder They Wrote

Today is the autumn equinox in the northern hemisphere. As much as I love summer, I do love the crisp days of fall, filled with cinnamon and gold leaves, bright orange pumpkins, and tall cornstalks. It’s also a great time to curl up with a book on your Kindle.

May I recommend Murder They Wrote? 🙂

You can learn more about this anthology of murder mysteries by visiting me today at Harmony Kent’s blog. If you’re roaming about the blogosphere, pop in and say hello!

Murder They Wrote and a Blog Visit

Hi, Friends! If you live in the U.S., or Canada, I hope you had a long and enjoyable Labor Day weekend. I’m forgoing my usual Book Review Tuesday post today to share the news I’m once again out and about with Murder They Wrote, the mystery anthology in which I have a short story. Today, I’m visiting my friend and Story Empire colleague, Joan Hall.

If you get a chance, please drop over and say hello. And if you’re not already familiar with Joan, I recommend following her blog. She and I are kindred spirits in that we both love legends and folklore. Joan is working on a new legend-based series, but until book one is ready to roll, she has several other compelling mysteries you can explore.

I’m off visiting today, sharing details about the anthology, Murder They Wrote, in which I have a short story. Should you be out and about, please hop over to visit me at Mark Bierman’s blog.

While you’re there, poke around Mark’s corner of the blogosphere if you’re not already familiar with it. Mark is a skilled author and a great guy with a fun sense of humor. His posts cover a variety of topics, and are always engaging. See you there!

Writing a Different Type of Story #InSearchofMcDoogal

In Search of McDoogal is a short book—a 90 minute read. As a result, I’ve only done a small blog tour for the story. Today’s stop is the last. I am visiting my SE colleague and friend, Harmony Kent, with a post about writing a different type of story. I’m out of my genre realm with this one, but it was fun to experiment.

Hop over to see what the post is about. And while you’re there, poke around Harmony’s blog. She is a talented author and lover of books, and I know you’ll enjoy following her.

Harmony, McDoogal, and I hope to see you THERE!

Out and About with Blog Visits

A beam of light shines out from an open bookHi, friends! It’s almost the end of the week—I can taste Friday and the weekend. So close! We have been fortunate to have 40ish weather in Central Pennsylvania. Earlier in the week we had high 50s and a record high in the low 60s. SCORE! That’s my kind of winter!

Beautiful weather makes me want to be outside. Much like those gorgeous temps that have me spending time outdoors, blog wanderlust can kick in any time. Today, I’m making the rounds as the guest of two fabulous bloggers.

James (Jay) Cudney is interviewing me at his site, THIS IS MY TRUTH NOW. I had a lot of fun answering his questions and hope you’ll pop over if you have a moment. Jay is also a talented author (I’m a fan of his Braxton Campus Mystery Series) and has an excellent blog, so be sure to give a looksee when you visit and consider following him. He’s an excellent blogger, writer friend, and supporter of others.

Also, my dear friend and PenderPal, Marcia Meara (she gets the PenderPal reference, LOL) is shining a spotlight on Eventide today and helping me spread news of my Hode’s Hill Mystery Series sale. I hope you’ll pop over to Marcia’s place, THE WRITE STUFF to check it out. And if by some unimaginable hiccup in the universe you are not following this talented and funny author, be sure to check out her blog. I guarantee she’ll make you smile.

I’m closing comments here but hope to see you out and about! Happy reading and happy Thursday!

Wednesday Weirdness: A Personal UFO Encounter

pathway between large, gnarled trees with words "on the path of Wednesday Weirdness" superimposed over imageToday’s Wednesday Weirdness is a little different than usual. I’m visiting with Hugh Roberts of Hugh’s Views and News to share a personal UFO encounter. If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you may have seen a post on this before—although I have expanded on the detail.

In October, I participated in Teri Polen’s Bad Moon Rising. One of the questions she asked was something along the lines of “would you rather be a ghostbuster or a member of the X-files team.” My answer included a brief reference to seeing a UFO as a child. Hugh commented he was interested in hearing more, which lead to an invitation to do a guest post on his blog. Between NaNoWriMo, and the holidays, we put everything on hold until after the first of the new year.

Today, I hope you’ll join me at HUGH’S BLOG while I share a memory of a long-ago summer night when something very strange happened.. I’m closing comments here but hope to see you at Hugh’s place 🙂

A Blog Visit Today #Eventide #GhostFiction

Hello, friends! This spot is usually reserved for my Tuesday Book Reviews, but I have nothing new to share this week. Yes, I went a whole week without reading a book—shocking I know 🙂

I did, however, do a beta read for a friend, so I still had my nose buried in something.

If you’ve followed any of my mini-tour posts, you’ve already met Madison, the heroine from the present day timeline. Today, I’d like to introduce you to Hollande Moore, my heroine from the past.

You can find the post HERE. Drop by if you have a spare moment, and say hello. And, by all means, if you’re not already following Joan, now is the perfect time to click FOLLOW on her blog. She always has something interesting to share, especially her Mystery Monday posts, which I love.

‘Nuff said. I’m outta here, and hope to see you at JOAN’S PLACE. 🙂

A Top 10 Honor and A Visit #Hode’sHillSeries #SupernaturalThriller

I’ll be releasing the final book of my Hode’s Hill Series, Eventide, this December. Look for more about this book leading up to the release. My goal is to have some fun posts planned with a cover reveal and an introduction to several new characters (and returning favorites) who take center stage.

In the meantime, you can catch up on the series with End of Day (book 2) and Cusp of Night (Book 1). I hear they’re not bad reading 😉
