Hello all.  I’m at GRL and I did my first Word of the Day of the conference.  Yesterday I was going to dinner with Amber Kell and J Scott and we talked about words for wasting time.  So I did a word of the day with mine.  I really hope you like it and I hope to do more words of the day while I’m here with some guest worders.  Enjoy!!!!!

Convention Odyssey – Stop 2

In the last week, I have travelled a lot.  The flight from Munich was long and I got to spend only part of a day with Dominic before heading to Baltimore to catch my flight to Tampa.  You all know that I love Dominic.  He’s the center of my life, but I am learning something with all this travel that I didn’t expect.  I need Dominic to keep me sane and from splitting into lots of little pieces.  At these conventions I am not alone and I am with people I care about and who take good care of me.  … Continued

The Death of My Car

Almost a week ago we got a bad storm and it knocked down the top of one of the trees between the sidewalk and the street.  I actually had a call into a tree service to come out to take a look at it, but mother nature had other ideas.  The crown of the tree broke of and landed on top of my car.  Needless to say my poor Mustang convertible went to car heaven.  The fire department came in and cleared away the tree and branches.  I called a towing company and they cleared away the car.  Everything was going smoothly. … Continued

Marty on Being the Cover Model for Backward

Marty is the cover model for Backward and I asked him to write a few thoughts on being a cover model.  He is a great guy and takes one heck of a photograph!!!! Last summer I was contacted by my good friend Jesse Jackman. He mentioned that he had recommended me for a book cover and that he and Dirk had done ones as well. He showed me theirs and I was floored! Such great imagery and the photographer really captured them well. Being a fan of both of them as well as close friends I was touched by their … Continued

Winter Guest Post

Yesterday I did a winter blog post with The Blogger Girls.  They were gracious enough to host me on their blog.  “I used to remember at eight years old, laying in my bed listening to the wind.  I’d get out and pad across the cool floor in my bare feet and flannel pajamas with cowboys on them so I could look out my bedroom window and watch the snow as it came down.  More than once my mom scolded me to get back into bed.  The power was out and we didn’t have any heat, so if I didn’t get … Continued

Hope & Love Anthology. A CHBB – LGBTQ Charity Collection.

    100% of all proceeds will go to the MKE-LGBT Community Center. It starts with hope. That’s what LGBTQ Centers all over the world give us, the hope, the community, the care and education we need in a world that is often hate filled, scared of the unknown, and down right scary. When first introduced to community many of us rejoice as it’s often the first time we’re able to be out and be our true selves without fear or shame. This anthology is for the benefit of one such center, one that touches many many lives, and like … Continued

A Heart for Robbie

My friend JP Barnaby has a new book releasing July 11, and this is what she said about it.  “On March 7, 1992 my daughter Kaitlyn was born with a pulmonary atresia, the same condition that affects little Robbie in A Heart for Robbie – because Robbie is her story. I wasn’t able to give her the same happy ending in real life, so I wrote her one. This book is her legacy.”     Waiting for someone else’s child to die so yours can live is the worst kind of Hell. Celebrated Young Adult author Julian Holmes pits the heroic characters … Continued

First Love

Hello all.  Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you all have a wonderful Easter morning.  I’m currently away from home at Rainbowcon and Dominic is at home, spending the day with my family.  I was very lucky in that Dominic was my first true love and we’ve been together now for over twenty years.  So he’s what I’m thankful for and truly blessed with on this Easter Day. I am participating in the Rainbow Gold Reviews Blog Hop. http://rainbowgoldreviews.wordpress.com/2014/04/14/easter-hunt-search-for-hidden-words-and-phrases-on-participating-blogssitespages-and-win/
