Dianne Bright Dianne Bright's blog:
Most people haven't heard of me as a mainstream author yet, and I'm okay with being an indie gal. But sometimes, it's just nice to feel noticed.

This happened at one of my Barnes & Noble book signing events for my first novel, SOUL READER.

A lady came up to me in the bathroom and asked, "Aren'... Read more of this blog post »

Cliff McNish Cliff McNish's blog:
It's a curious thing that most people's reading tastes become progressively less dark as they age. While I see many of my middle-aged friends settling down to read nothing more scary than Pride and Prejudice if you please, a sizable proportion of their 9-12 year-old children are actively ignoring...

Flood Gates (They Met Jesus #5) by Katheryn Maddox HaddadThe scripture for today, October 20 (10/20), is Deuteronomy 10:20 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

"Fear the Lord your God and serve him. Hold fast to him."

In the Hebrew, "fear" is yirah. It means to revere. Psalm 111:9 (KJV) says, "Holy and reverend is His name." The Bible does not te... Read more of this blog post »

'Mindfulness' is the name of my short story that orginated in a chapter I cut from my upcoming book 'Murder in the Comfort Zone' for reason of pacing.
It was painful though necessary to discard it, and I'm glad I've found a way to give it a second life here.
Happy Halloween/Horror Week!

This was an interesting way of looking at it, so it latched onto me and I’ve been mulling it over ever since. And since I knew I’m overdue... Read more of this blog post »

Creatures howl
From day and night.
They could not resist--
A pray that walks alone.

They say sweet nothings
To give their "mates" attention.
They reveal a grin
That is sweet and deadly.

You could say they're horrid,
But it's in their blood,
Printed in the veins.
They could not resist.
