Cinderskella Cover Reveal & The Great Cinderskella Giveaway #9!

It's here, it's here, it's here! The cover for Cinderskella is finally here! I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself!!! To celebrate, I thought I'd do The Great Cinderskella Giveaway #9 a few days early and make it one big party! I mean, who doesn't love parties?! And isn't a cover reveal the perfect excuse to celebrate? I think it is! Turn on the music. Make it LOUD! Pull up a chair. Put on your party hat . I've got drinks to go around. And there's plenty of chocolate . Have a slice of cake, some chips and salsa and don't forget your veggies. Wait! No veggies aloud at this party!! There's pizza, too, if you like that sort of thing. Toot a horn, throw some confetti, just don't break any of my china or we'll need to have a chat. So now the question remains.... Who's excited to see Cinderskella's cover? Me, me, me !! Hopefully, you, you, you, too, too, too! But first....   Back to the party. How's the p

Shadows of Valor by Elsie Park

Elsie Park is my publishing sister and her medieval romance novel, Shadows of Valor, released recently on September 7th! She's here with a guest post today. Enjoy!     Growing up in a small mountain town outside of Yosemite National Park, California, U.S.A., Elsie enjoyed playing soccer, playing piano, reading, writing, art and spending time with family and friends. Years ago she spent 18 months in Italy teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. Seeing the castles and old Roman cities only added to her fascination for ancient and medieval culture. In college she studied zoology, botany and criminal justice. She’s worked as a wildland firefighter, security guard and a police officer, but she is currently a stay-at-home mom, spending time with her children and husband. She loves thinking up new ideas for interesting stories and musical compositions to go with them.   E-mail: Blog: Twitter: @elsiepark1 Autho

They Really DO Exist!

Early last week I had quite the entertaining  interesting email exchange. My daughter is new to soccer this year and I was inquiring about uniforms.  And, well, read on to find out more... Me:          I ordered uniforms well over a week ago.  Could someone tell me why have I not received them yet? It would be nice to finally have them so my daughter doesn't have to keep missing games. Director:          This is the first email we have received from you. What type of information are you asking for? Me:           Ummm...I take it you didn't read my email.   Again, I asked when I was going to receive my daughter's uniforms. I ordered them well over a week ago.   Director:              Hopefully your daughter is not missing any games due to the uniform.     Are you kidding me?! *HEAD DESK*  Yes, internet, they do exist.

The Samaritan's Pistol by Eric Bishop

  It's Labor Day and you're probably enjoy some hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, soaking up the final moments of summer. Am I right? Oh wait, you're here! Reading my blog post. How thoughtful of you. I promise you won't regret it, either, because I have the fabulous Eric Bishop here dishing on his favorite cowboy movies.       ERIC BISHOP is known to to his friends and family as an “author version of Clint Eastwood.” As the owner of a successful marketing firm, Bishop spends most of his time on his Utah ranch writing with the music of his adolescence bouncing off the walls. When he’s not writing, Bishop enjoys spending time with his wife and four lovely daughters at his home in Nibley, Utah. Unlike Jim, Bishop hasn’t had any run-ins with the Mafia. Yet. Eric:  What are my favorite cowboy movies? Let’s get right to it. Here are my top six. 1)       The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Some say it’s long and laborious but compared to the jerkin
