A site that delivers what it promises


Hi, I don't get paid for sharing I just like Sandra Beckwith of BuildBookBuzz.com not just because she doesn't gauge authors but because she delivers what she promises, such as The 365 emails!

What's going in with my series?

Hi, final edits in book one of the series, The Sylph’s Tale, are going great. 

I am very gratefull for reader comments directly to me and on Amazon. Delighted that so many loved the story even though it got published incomplete and immensely grateful to those who want to comment on chapters before republication. 

Inerested  in reading chapters before republication? Please let me know.

 I will send readers one chapter at a time. With the first chapter, I will include character mythology, genealogy, and history that will include what to expect in the first three books.

Small steps, big changes

Spring is almost here, tomorrow we change our clocks, it's also a good time to take a small inventory about how we can make more time for ourselves on earth or just improve our health with steps.

My daily horoscope said, but I think it's good for everyone: "take a long look today at what you can do to improve your health. Developing a positive routine is an excellent gift to give yourself, even if you’re already hale and hearty. The good news is that science has proven it only takes three weeks to replace one pattern of behavior with another. Whether it’s altering your exercise regime, changing your diet, or ending a bad habit, starting now increases your chances for long-term success. Every day is a fresh start." 

I don't buy into all the other readings, have not found them necessary but I enjoy the Daily Horoscope reading. I get nothing for anyone signing up but here is the link  -- Signup now!

Used To Bee


All that was, and we were 
Being there done that

What went 
Leaving in memories how it was
When my faith was holier than yours

My church blessed by the ”real” god
As my priest or preacher assured
As he or she put robes on
And blessed all, 
With the hand of god
Given to him/ger by whom?

Told us who we were
Learned us on how to be
Where to go and do
Matter, or not 
For that's how we know
Not how to fly
But when to sidestep ditches

Lookout for the danger of feelings
Learn  how not to dig old land mines
And expect won't explode
Leaving us shattered
Lost and not found

Reflections for Lent

Grant me Ashes

My Lent Meditations


Grant me Ashes
God, as I understand you
grant me the valor to see truth
not what I fear, 
want to see, or want it to be.

An eye for reality
and another for day dreaming 
a mouth to speak truth but not 
push it on others. 

A mind to remember my messy tracks, 
mistakes and faults,
what I need to accept or change 
but please
don't bother me too much because 
it's my time 
to kick back, breakout and do 
my thing.

Compassion to accept
that reality can be hard or healing 
and good or rough at times,
can build esteem with mistakes
despite screams and frowns, 
from others.

Help me live this day not counting 
blessings nor messes
not taking everyone’s inventory 
and standing up for myself and others 
even when on my butt.

Great information and giveaways for authors!




Hi,

Are you frustrated and even overwhelmed by tons of sites that promise struggling authors a lot but only deliver rehashed stuff at a high price?

 As a struggling author and get bombarded with promises of help in writing and publishing but usually get rehashed stuff.

I am not paid to write this, just sharing because someone shared it with me and it has delivered as promised. I am talking about Sandra Beckwith.
