Visiting with a Friend

If you don’t know Rob and aren’t following his blog, you’re missing out on something wonderful. His corner of the blogosphere is filled with musings, digital art, and photography.

Wait! Make that spectacular digital art and photography (and his musings are pretty outstanding, too, LOL). Seriously—I’m blown away every time I see his work.

I originally connected with Rob through Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene (thank you, Teagan!) when Rob was illustrating Teagan’s Hullaba Lulu serial. Teagan’s whimsical story and Rob’s insanely gorgeous artwork kept me riveted each week. I was flattered when Rob asked me to be his featured blogger for October. He does an awesome job of tailoring his questions to each guest, so I hope you’ll check out our interview on Art by Rob Goldstein.

Get Your Ghost On #BadMoonRising

We all know that October is a time for ghouls, ghosts, and things that go-bump-in-the night. Friend, author, and sister blogger, Teri Polen, hosts a paranormal-centric event this time of year called Bad Moon Rising. I’m delighted to be her guest today, answering questions about Ouija boards and haunted houses among other things. Some of my answers might surprise you. Intrigued? You can find our interview here.

And while you’re visiting, I encourage you to poke around Teri’s blog haunt and check out her books. She’s a talented author of YA, horror, and sci-fi. If you’re not following  already, I encourage you to click the follow button on her blog and get to know this friendly, gifted writer. I’m already looking forward to her next release!

Is Levitation Possible? #CuspofNight

Happy Monday, everyone! Today, the lovely Gwen Plano is hosting me on my second to final tour stop for Cusp of Night. I hope you’ll pop over to check out my post about levitation on Gwen’s blog.

If you’re not already following Gwen, please take a look around while you’re there. I first “met” Gwen through a book club I had belonged to in the past. It’s there that I discovered her moving memoir, Letting Go Into Perfect Love. She also has a new release which she co-authored with another mutual friend, John W. Howell. The Contract is high octane fiction with plenty of action and a bit of the paranormal and romance tossed in.

I look forward to seeing you at Gwen’s blog, where there’s a bit of magical “soaring” taking place 😉

Cooking Up a Mystery

I have the pleasure of being a guest blogger today at Esme Salon’s blog. Esme is all about “Share, Care, and Inspire.” I’m delighted to be featured there, along with Cusp of Night, and a…er…um…recipe. You’ll have to check it out to see what I mean. You can find the post here.

Esme is a delightful hostess who opens her blogs to others in addition to sharing wonderful recipes and inspiring posts. She has a standing invitation on her blog for guest posts, so check it out while you’re there and show Esme some blog love. 🙂

Visiting with Time #CuspofNight

It’s a very busy day for me today, and I hope you’ll indulge me—as well as the many wonderful bloggers who are sharing my newest release, Cusp of Night.

In addition to my other stops, I’m visiting D.L. Finn with a post about how a certain sequence of numbers plays into the plot of Cusp of Night. Denise is fabulous supporter of other authors and a lovely spirit who writes beautiful poetry, whimsical children’s books, even adult paranormal. Check out her blog while you’re visiting. You won’t be disappointed!  You can find my post about numbers and time here.

The Birth of the Spiritualism

Happy Monday, Friends! It’s a new week and a slower one as I wind down my tour stops for Cusp of Night. I truly appreciate all the support everyone has shown the first book in my new series.

Today, I am visiting with my good friend Debbie Peterson and sharing a post about how the spiritualism movement got started. If you get a moment, please pop over to Debbie’s blog to check out my post. And while you’re there, take a peek around. Debbie writes shivery paranormal romances filled with tender-hearted ghostly love. I’ve read them all and highly recommend them!

Visiting on a Friday

It’s Friday! Who doesn’t love the end of the work week? It’s gray and mucky in my area, but none of that matters given there is a weekend around the corner—albeit with a few inches of impending snow. Hopefully, it’s the last we’ll see of the white stuff until next winter.

Today I’m visiting with Teri Polen at Books and Such sharing one of my favorite novels in her Friday Reading Corner. Teri is a gifted writer, voracious reader, and fabulously supportive of others. I highly recommend clicking the “follow” button on her blog while you’re there.

Hop over and check out my post if you get a chance…you might even pick up a bit of news about my upcoming release, Cusp of Night.  🙂

A Friday Visit

It’s Friday and that’s always a cause for celebration for me when the work week winds down to a close. Not that I don’t love my career in the working world, just that the weekend means I have more time to devote to my other enterprise—building my brand as an author. With that in mind, I’m excited to be the featured guest at Teri Polen’s blog, Books and Such, for Indie Author Friday.

Teri invited me over to answer a handful of questions about my writing habits. Granted, I’m not sharing the secrets of rocket science, but it’s all good fun. Hop over and say hello if you get a spare moment while you’re roaming the blogosphere. And while you’re there, poke around Teri’s blog and consider giving her a follow. Not only is she an author, but she reads a ton of books, too. There’s no better combo in my mind! 🙂

Out and About the First Day in July by Mae Clair

Ah, ‘tis the launch of a whole new month today. I feel like June flashed by in a blur, thanks in part to all the promo I’ve been doing for MYTH AND MAGIC. Can we say “exhausted?”

Speaking of which, Cindy Fazzi (a.k.a Vina Arno) is hosting me today with a short series of questions. If you’re moseying around the blogosphere and have a moment or two to spare, I’d love for you to hop over and say hello.

In any event, happy hump day, and HAPPY JULY!

Romantic Suspense and a Research Trip by Mae Clair

It’s been a hectic week. Er, make that month. I love when I have a new release hitting booksellers, but wow, it can be exhausting. I know many of you can relate. Whew!

Today, I’m visiting Just Romantic Suspense, a fantastic blog that is dedicated to….well, romantic suspense. Although all of my previous novels have touched on this genre, MYTH AND MAGIC is the first that can truly claim it. I’m pretty jazzed about that.

As always, if you get a moment, pop over and say hello. The good people at JRS leave each post up for two days, so I am there today (June 24) and tomorrow (June 25).

Know what comes after that?  Okay, aside from Friday.

My husband is indulging my research whim again by taking me to Point Pleasant. Mothman, UFOs, the TNT Area. It should be interesting. This time I want to hit the Mason County Visitor’s Center. It was closed the last time we were there because we arrived too late on a Friday evening. I’m looking forward to coming back with lots of great stuff for use in my Point Pleasant Series.

I’m sure I’ll be blogging about it.

I probably won’t be able to shut up. 🙂
