Reba and RaLain – Girl’s Night Out
Part II

The entire bar is riveted by the antics of the blond that is slurring her words as she argues with a barmaid, “What do you mean, too much to drink!” she shouts, “Is there ever too much to drink?”

The drunk empties the contents of her pouch onto the counter. She begins rummaging through the various coins. The older, gray-haired man eases away from the bar as the woman throws a coin at the barmaid, who catches it in mid air, “I have the money to pay, now...

Part 1

A few years back, I was a guest at various Renaissance Fairs. It was a wonderful way to sell my books. I didn’t have to pay the 40-50% fee that bookstores charge for putting my books on the shelf, so I kept more of the profits. The only drawback was that they like you to be in costume.
John, one of the other vendors who had also purchased a copy of my books, mentioned that he thought Prophecy of the Flame would be perfect at a convent...<![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 9]>

No More Tagging? Amazon Discontinuing Tags?

I just received notice from Amazon (Kindle Really) that they are discontinuing "Tags" and replacing them with other search and navigation features. It seems strange to me that Amazon would make this change without notifying customers.  I received the email below from Amazon (Kindle Support) today re: tagging. Please comment is you have heard similar reports or received similar information from Amazon.

Email from Amazon:

There’s so much more to becoming a great writer than just getting published, but for most people, that is their end goal. There is a truth about what it’s like as a published author that I’ve learned over the last few years.L.E. Modesitt Jr said it more eloquently then I ever could:

“No author, not even in a book the length of War and Peace , can describe and cover all the aspects of a society and the people with which he or she populates that culture. What authors do is provide bits and pieces...

Tell me, were you a reader before you were a writer? What do you enjoy reading?
Yes, I’ve always loved to read from as far back as I can remember. My favorite genres are historical fiction, memoirs, and any character driven stories. Lately, however, I have been broadening my choices and have been enjoying some paranormal, YA, and fantasy stories as well.

We have a wonderful treat today... Zoe Brooks, author of Love of Shadows has stopped by!
Tell me, were you a reader before you were a writer? What do you enjoy reading?
I am told by my parents that I was making up poems before I learned how to read and write. So I was a writer (well a poet at least) before I was a reader. I love magic realism – books where the real world meets fantasy. I didn’t know that was what I liked until I went to fantasy conference in Leicester and was talking...
