A Magical Irish Cottage and How It Isn’t Connected to The Dead Shall Live

A Magical Irish Cottage and How It Isn’t Connected to The Dead Shall Live

Well, isn’t that a fetching title for post? But it’s true. There isn’t a cottage like this in my book. But I have to admit I watched Bealtaine Cottage videos from time to time to get me back into the Irish frame of mind whilst writing The Dead Shall Live. If you want to get a glimpse of this magical cottage in the west of Ireland and imagine yourself living in such a place, you’ll be blessed with 18 minutes of calm, warm, Celtic beauty. I’m sure I’ll share more about Bealtaine Cottage but for now, get...

The Dead Shall Live is Available Everywhere and Early Reviewers Rave

Yes! The Dead Shall Live is available in digital e-book everywhere, with trade paperback and hardcover soon to follow!   And about those reviews–not only are the early reviews raves, but–   Reviewers have even started swearing like Vespasian.   “Buggering, rutting hell! Why did it have to end?” “Holy moly, or should I say, buggering hell! My head is spinning as I’m finally released from the spell of words…”   I can’t begin to tell you how widely I’m grinning over...

Hamilton’s Battalion: A Trio of Romances — A  Read-a-Long!

What is Hamilton’s Battalion: A Trio of Romances?   It’s the book of novellas I am dying to read. I can’t right now. But I am dying to. Why am I so excited and intrigued by this book? Well, just read the blurbs on each book and you’ll see. Read them and tell me you aren’t at least intrigued and possibly chomping at the bit like I am. This trio of diverse romances includes f/f, m/m, and interracial love stories in the time of Alexander Hamilton. Because nothing is new in history. I have it on my Kindle. So...

A Preview and Hints about The Dead Shall Live, and oh yes, Researchy Goodness

I guest-blogged at Word Wenches yesterday, and if you’re interested in Ireland or Elizabethan history and how they crop up in The Dead Shall Live, you should  dash over there and check it out! Not to mention my favorite new character is introduced there! Also, a reminder that we are only [omg!] THIRTEEN DAYS AWAY from The Dead Shall Live ebooks landing on ereaders and in apps automagically! [Unfortunately we have a production issue that means print will be a lit later.] So as a reminder, right now– You can buy This Crumbling...

The Dead Shall Live — The Book Trailer!

  This is a sneaky, stealthy, and devious way to announce the pub date for The Dead Shall Live. But it’s also fun and fabulous. Because I want you to see my new book trailer. So watch it, and then you’ll know when to expect the book to drop into your inbox if you preorder at the special preorder price. I’m getting ahead of myself. Watch!   I hope you love it as much as I do! Please, give it a thumbs up at youtube by clicking that image and feel free to leave a comment, if you’d like! Pre-Order The Dead Shall...

This Crumbling Pageant–The Book Trailer!

I never intended to create book trailers and yet suddenly, wow, I have done it. I am going to ask you a huge favor! Will you please go like this on youtube and facebook? The more it gets liked, the more it will be shown to random strangers who don’t move quickly enough to avoid it! Wait. That is not what I intended to say. Ahem. The more it will be offered for the reading enjoyment of those whose algorythms share an affinity with other people who loved the book! [Is that better? I think that’s better. Ahem. Am I punch drunk?...

Pssst. I am sharing a secret with you.

This is not an official announcement. I have hooplah planned for that. Hooplah, I say. But the pre-order links are being set up for The Dead Shall Live. So let me give you the deal. Pre-Order is only $3.99 at Amazon  & Kobo and other stores are coming soon.     At midnight-oh-one on Samhain [that’s Halloween to some of you] two things will happen.   One, this digital book will land on your ereader and be waiting for you if you have pre-ordered. Like magic!   Two, the price goes up a dollar. Yes, when this book is...

Watching the Moon’s Shadow in an Unexpected Way

Watching the Moon’s Shadow in an Unexpected Way

I had no idea you could watch an eclipse–watch the moon’s shadow–without special anything. I did not know that what we see as ‘sunshine’ is actually myriad overlapping circles of light, and during an eclipse, the become slices of light. My Resident Storm Chaser shows me these kinds of things. He’s so smart. And watching the ground, various places around the yard, was beautiful. “Oh, I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow, moon shadow, moonshadow— Leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow,...

Deep In My Heart, I Do Believe

Deep in my heart, I do believe, we’ll walk hand in hand, we are not afraid, the whole wide world around, we shall overcome, someday. Gospels at Heaven, a German gospel choir “We Shall Overcome” was based on “I’ll Overcome Someday” by Charles Albert Tindley first published in 1900. The lyrics recorded and popularized by Pete Seeger: We shall overcome, We shall overcome, We shall overcome, some day.   Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe We shall overcome, some day.   We’ll walk hand in hand,...
