I tried to make my ebook Desdinova available for free but it wouldn't allow it. It is now available for $2.99- the cheapest they would let me offer it and still remain on the market... It is available for any e-reader, or use link below to get it from Amazon... You can also read it on your computer. Thanks.

     Wow. It has been so long since I posted, that I don't even know what to say! So much has happened. Isn't it funny how you take health for granted. Then all of a sudden, everything just starts to fall apart. At the same time. I don't want to get into any details, but every day I am beyond exhausted. I hope to start writing again soon. I have fought the dust bunnies over my works in progress and got them in order. I sure wish I could do November NaNoWriMo, but I don't know if I can set up that quick, as the time is nigh. I am having to reconfigure my life to deal with a serious illness, and streamline my expectations of myself, and my goals. Hope all is superfantabulous out there in blogland. Miss you all. I haven't even been on my own blog in so long that I have to figure it out again. Life sure is interesting. Have a wonderful day, world.

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time.
check them out here.
     Is it the New Year already?? Can't prove it by me. Still running around and going in circles like crazy. I am just kind of slowing down a little after the holidays, and getting my thinking somewhat straightened out. Halfheartedly making goals for the year. This year will be focused on simplifying our lives. We are still unsettled here, which is causing too much confusion on things. And the world lost a good kitty, in case you all didn't know it. RIP cute little Pirate-boy. Be careful of your pets, everyone. Feline bladder disease is terrifying and expensive. Painful for all involved.
     I hope everyone has a good start to the year. I don't re-set til mid January myself... I hope to be able to write more this year. I am not off to a good start. I just really want to go back to bed.
(Just noticed that this plopped in drafts folder & did not post!! OOPS! Sorry!)

Time to celebrate the small things. This is a bloghop.

     Christmas music. The quickest way to get me to hightail it out of anywhere. So sappy, and commercial. But I have found that there is a place for it, and that is in the home and in the heart. It is more commonly used as a weapon these days against harried and stressed out holiday shoppers. It does not enhance the mood of Christmas shopping. Usually the only Christmas music I listen to is a Christmas cd made by one of my friends, Shannon. Beautiful. I love her voice. Here is a link to check out her music. And here.
     Well this year, I happened to pick up a Mahalia Jackson Christmas cd. And then an Elvis one. I will be on the search for Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash. Yeah, the traditional & homey music. Played at the right time, in the right place, to enhance the season. It fits. Please, consumer traps (i.e. "stores"). Please leave the Christmas music until Christmas Eve & Day. Please don't start playing it before we even finish Thanksgiving leftovers.
     If you are one of the people that enjoy Christmas music all year round, then carry on. But personally, I prefer it only played at Christmas.
     What is your favorite Christmas music?
          Happy Holidays (Holidaze, Howlidaze, however you celebrate it) to everyone across the globe...

Time to celebrate the small things. This is a bloghop.
     Greetings, gentle readers... Well this is the time of year to celebrate family, and the memories have been scrolling thru my mind lately. I remember the aunts and uncles, some respectable married folk, some young and full of the devil. All approachable and loving. And all the cousins. I had a million cousins. still do, minus a few. But the ones who are gone are still the same in my memories. Jimmy and Terry, who died young. Passed a schoolbus on their way to school and hit a car head on. It was hard for the family, and their mother never got over it, of course. She has gone to join them now. They were our age, so it was hard to comprehend. That young, you always think you were invincible and have the gift of life eternal. I wonder what they would have grown up to be? They loved baseball. Obsessed by it. When they came over, they would bring their baseball stuff and we would play. I got a blue catchers mitt, just because of them. I think of my family a lot, especially as I get older, and am grateful to have had them all in my life. And when I dream, I always dream of the ones who have passed on already. When I dream of the whole family together, we are in one house -- but the ones who have passed are only in another room, and we all are still together. God might have called some of them Home, but I have never let them go. So I want to wish my whole family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I want to wish all the new young'uns in the family the best of luck in this uncertain world. If anyone can make it, they can.
     Happy Holidaze to all out there in Blogland. Be safe.
