Paperbacks, Baking and a Contest

wecover9titleI have some exciting news. My novel, Whit’s End, is now available on CreateSpace in paperback and will be available on Amazon next week. The Ebook version is available now. On December 14th, they’ll be a goodreads giveaway contest for the paperback version. I will post a link when the contest goes live.

Switching gears, on November 1st, I posted about my short story memoir anthology, and gave a glimpse of the first of those four stories titled, Don’t Blink. The second tale in the anthology is titled, Hope Lies in Meatballs. I thought it was a funny and fitting title.

What does it mean?

Kindle Scout Saga Continues

But, before you go further, here is the link to my now published novel.

The Feet Chronicles

There is a curse upon our feet!

You’d think the stories I told about injured feet before were enough, but no, fate has brought me more.

Second Edition of the Second Edition

About every four to six posts, WordPress does not deposit my new post in their Reader for followers to see.  From what I could tell, my September 12th post did not go into the Reader, at least not on that day. Since I posted an important accomplishment, and few people visited, I’m re-posting. I apologize to those of you who came over to read this already. Thank you in advance for your support.

P.S. Would love some reviews on Amazon or Goodreads or both.

I finally did it!

Rolling Meatloaf

If you haven’t read my memoir anthology, you do not know about my fails in cooking as a newlywed. You might find it amusing about how little I knew.

When I got married, one of my gifts was a Betty Crocker cookbook. At the time, I was pleased to find an easy meatloaf recipe in there that helped me learn in the beginning. Since I haven’t shared a recipe in a while, I’m posting this tried and true meatloaf I still make on occasion. Continue reading “Rolling Meatloaf”
