Well, the holidays are pretty much over. Phew! They make me happy and sad. The end of the year always brings me down. First it hits you. You’re getting older! Another year has come and gone. What did I accomplish? What did I miss? What should I have done? So many questions, without many answers.
So now on to a new year. New adventures. New quests. New goals.
I don’t make new year resolutions. To me they are like broken promises and rules that are made to be broken. I’d rather wing it! :-)
I have set some goals for my writing, though. I have so many things in the works and last year I just couldn’t seem to get it in gear and move forward.
So a toast to the new year and to moving forward!
Happy New Year, everyone! May it grace you with love, kindness, compassion, and prosperity!
I love Halloween. The costumes. The decorations. The wind. The smells. The trick or treating. :-) And THE CANDY!
I also love the scary stories.
Give me anything by Stephen King and you’ll lose me for hours, not to mention that I’ll keep you up all night listening for things that go bump in the night. :-)
My house is haunted so there are plenty of noises.
Anyway, since this is the last day of the month and Halloween, and I wanted to share a few books for your enjoyment.
My favorite by Stephen King is “Cell”
But there are plenty of books by new and indie authors that will keep you up at night! Check out the slide show below.
And a paragraph from one of my short stories that will be in my collection, “Prompted by a Photo”,
“Tag You’re It!”
With arms wrapped around each other, the giggling girls wave goodbye to the old witch and walk along the path towards town. They see the old man in tattered clothes step out from behind the rotting oak tree. His once black fedora, now dingy and gray, sets cockeyed on his balding head. Deep lines etch his face and his scraggly white beard almost reaches his belt. Curious the girls follow him as he moves into the clearing, the dead leaves crackling under their feet. He turns and lifts a gnarled finger to his cracked, dry lips and in a raspy voice he whispers, “What took you so long? Did you talk to her?”
Still a ways to go and I will be doing some revising, but hopefully I will have the book out before the end of the year!
Now, Go put on your costume and get out there, Trick or Treating, whichever is your pleasure. :-)
See you soon and till then; HUGS!
Great review of Emily Guido’s, “The Light Bearer” Series and an update to the release of the next in line, “Seditious”!
Originally posted on A Mixed Bag:
Last year, I had the privilege to receive a book my Emily Guido. I found her blog and her books looked interesting. They were about a Light-Bearer and Blood-Hunter. They are Angels and Demons. Having read all three books, I was enthralled, and caught up in them. There are enough twists in it to keep you wondering what is coming and how it will plan out. With surprises aplenty.
Take a look at my review of Charmeine, the first book in the series.
Then I reviewed Mactus.
The third book is Accendo.
Soon, the fourth book, Seditious is coming out soon. If you want to catch up on what the story is before the release, then here are the links to the books on Amazon. The image is for the UK Amazon, and the link below is the US Amazon.

And welcome once again to Karen’s Different Corners.
Thanks for joining the Devil’s Nightmare Halloween Blog Tour and hosting me on your site today. So, what’s new with me? Well, something you may not know is that I’m about to participate in National Novel Writing Month for the first time, so I’m a bit nervous about the idea of attempting to write 50,000 words in only 30 days. Wish me luck!
For fans of Devil’s Nightmare, I’m excited to announce that the sequel Devil’s Nightmare: Premonitions is now available worldwide in print and for Kindle and Kindle reading apps.
Evil knows no boundaries.
Sequel to the Amazon bestselling horror Devil’s Nightmare, Robert Pruneda brings fans of the first novel another horrific thriller full of twists, chills, and a shocking conclusion. Two years have passed since Aaron Sanders retired from the Austin Police Department after what the media has called The Saint Hedwig Massacre. He moves his family out of the capital city to start a new life as a small town cop in Lost Maples, Texas, where the population count is updated more often than the murder rate. That bit of reputation is about to change when Aaron is once again caught in the middle of a mysterious investigation that has an eerie familiarity. This time, however, he is certain what is responsible for the violent deaths . . . Or is he? Evil knows no boundaries and it is up to Aaron to figure out how to protect the residents of his community, and his family, from becoming its next victims.

An entrepreneur at heart, he left his career in the newspaper industry in September 2011 and now focuses his attention on doing what he loves most . . . writing and sharing his stories with the world.

Pursue Your Dreams . . . And Never Look Back
I always enjoy having Eden stop by and share what’s new with her, and today’s no different.
Please welcome the lovely and talented, Miss Eden Baylee!
Hi Eden. What’s new with you?
Many thanks for doing this, xox and hope you are well.
“The Lottery” is FREE on Amazon. This novella is the last story in my anthology “Spring into Summer” and takes place in Thailand. You’ll have a chance to stay warm a bit longer before the end of summer!
If you’ve always thought erotica was nothing more than sex, and/or you’ve never read my erotic writing, then this is a great place to start.
Please grab it, and tell your friends. I want to give away as many copies as I can!
If you like it, a review is always appreciated. ;)
A most unusual lottery occurs in the Land of Smiles.
Westerner, Sierra Zhao, travels abroad and finds herself immersed in a culture with values very different to her own. Set in an exotic red-light district of Thailand, THE LOTTERY explores themes of sacrifice, friendship, and eroticism.
