I always hesitate to mention that I’m writing again, because I’m afraid I might lose my muse.

Graham, Charlotte and Marlie
Welcome to Lori’s Lane for the first post of 2018. We’re in a deep freeze up here in the Midwest, with temperatures below zero Fahrenheit (below -18c). Remember when I used to live in Florida? Believe it or not, I still don’t miss it.
Living on a peninsula wasn’t too unlike living on an island. I didn’t care for it much. There was only one direction out of Florida when hurricanes came.
My friend, Anneli, lived on an island way farther north than Florida with a drastically different climate. She didn’t have to deal with hurricanes, and she had some breathtaking scenery.
A Road Paved in Copper
I have this young friend I met online. I’m old enough to be her, ahem, older sister….born when I was a teenager.
Last week I talked about meeting new friends through social media. Today, I’m going to share with you how I met one friend in particular. I joined an author’s facebook page that had quite a lot of members. If I’m being honest, I met a lot of snarky people there, except for three really kind authors. I unfollowed the page, but luckily was accepted as friends by those three authors. It always amazes me how the Universe brings us just the right people for our lives, if we recognize them.
Seventy-Seven Years and then Some
Life is so difficult these days, isn’t it? I mean, they had it so much easier years ago.
I’m super excited to introduce my first guest, Jill Weatherholt. Let’s get to know her and find out what she’s been up to. I’ve asked her a few questions to get the conversation going, and guess what I learned? She just released her debut romance novel, Second Chance Romance. So, I started reading it and, well…WOW. So far I’m loving it. Here’s Jill.
Thanks for inviting me to visit your blog today, Lori. When I started blogging in September of 2012, I had no idea I’d meet so many wonderful and talented people who I’d end up being friends with. Honestly, I don’t remember how we connected, but I’m so happy we did.
On Wednesday I posted about making new friends, but I also have friends from this blogging world that have been around for almost my entire five years. I will not call them “old” friends, because getting to know them through their regular blogs is always like new.
Remember when I wrote a post about how I have found some wonderfully, talented blogging and author friends? I said they are such kind, thoughtful and helpful people.
I’m very fortunate to have found some wonderful, talented blogging and author friends. I mean, such kind, thoughtful and helpful people.
If I’m being honest, there aren’t too many of them … perhaps a half-dozen, who have really made an impact on my life just through a computer screen.
One of them is Jill Weatherholt. I am honored that today Jill is featuring my novel, Whit’s End. On her blog, you can read what gave me the initial idea for my novel. And, also go there to click on my book and get it on sale for .99 cents this weekend only, January 20 -22 (2017).
Comments are closed here, but I’ll be happy to join in with the comments over at Jill’s blog. Would love to read your thoughts. The link to her post is HERE.
You may have noticed the re-blogs I’ve posted lately. You see, it all started when I entered Kindle Scout.
My First Time – Midwinter’s Eve Giveaway Hop
Here we go. This is my first time trying a blog hop. Please bear with me if I’ve goofed-up somewhere along the line.

We’ve had six inches of snow or better for the last three weekends in a row. On top of that, my husband and I had a cyclone hit our house. It was named JNC. A picture of it is below. Continue reading “Winter Cyclone”
One Week Contest
I have both good news and bad news. I’ll share the bad news first, but hang in there for the good news.
Slush, Snow and Exciting News
The recipe I planned to put on this post today is perfectly fitting for what we experienced in the Midwest this weekend.
Easing into Forgiveness
I read a daily affirmation magazine and have occasionally put up posts with some of those sayings. Most of them resonate with me, but once in a very great while, I find one a bit too idealistic.
Last Day is Today
I’m putting up a quick blog post just to let everyone know not to miss this last day my short story memoir anthology, Home Avenue is free. To get it, click on the book cover or the above link. Anyone who has already downloaded and read it, I’d greatly appreciate a review on Amazon and Goodreads.
Note: The above offer ended November 26th. The below sale ends November 28th. Both books ARE available on Amazon though.
Also, don’t miss the the special introductory offer price of .99 cents for my novel, Whit’s End. This special price lasts through Sunday. Reviews would be great for that one too.
I’m excited to learn what you all think of Ava and Meg’s simple yet complicated family lives. Simple, because these are real people living out every day lives, going to work, raising children, paying bills. Complicated, because their family relationships are all screwed up. Ava seems to be forever trying to fix things, while everyone else continues to live in their comfortable misery.
So, get them on special while you can. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Baking, Thanksgiving and Dysfunction
I hope everyone is enjoying family, friends, feast and some fine goodies. May those who don’t celebrate this American holiday be blessed as well.
I just finished making pumpkin cookies for Thanksgiving treats.
Whit’s End is Up and Running
I finally did it. I published my novel, Whit’s End.
NOTE: The special offers in this post have expired, but please do check out these books and see if they are something you’d like to read.
Have you ever been at your wit’s end . . . say about . . . this year’s election process? I’d venture to guess that most people in the U.S. reached that wit’s-end-point with the build up to November 8th.
Have you ever been at your wit’s end with a person? Maybe a coworker drove you nuts? How ’bout a family member? Or, perhaps computer problems?
