Hello, all!

No one will ever accuse me of being a master promoter. I recently had a new release and it just

The latest one is called Shadow's Edge. It's a psychic detective sort of thing. Of course there's a healthy dollop of M... Read more of this blog post »

Anne Mateer Anne Mateer's blog:

I confess, I wrote and deleted a very different post to mark my birthday today. It was much more . . . melancholy. But the morning after I wrote it I realized that my mindset is the fulcrum on which the emotional see-saw shifts, and I can control my thoughts. So I had this crazy idea–to write dow...

by Nancy Bilyeau

At about 4 p.m. on January 4, 1698, during the reign of King William III, a fire broke out in the Palace of Whitehall. The possible cause was linen left to dry by a fireplace. The "devouring flame," in the words of James Vernon, destroyed the king's and queen's lodgings and most o... Read more of this blog post »

Michelle Franklin Michelle Franklin's blog:
It is widely asserted that Lucentians will do anything to maintain their youthful looks. They are not above lathering themselves in a mix of products or the use of strange devices, which Frewyns, of course, will find a more practical use for.

Tim Challies Tim Challies's blog:
