Wednesday Writing — This Is The Sign You’ve Been Looking For

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 I tried to think of a post that would be positive for everyone.  I came up dry.  Then I thought I’d share an image prompt and challenge you to get going with whatever creation you want, inspired by the prompt. But what? I went to Unsplash.com and searched for a “random” … More Wednesday Writing — This Is The Sign You’ve Been Looking For

Book Review from the Pen of Mae Clair: Fiona Finch and the Pink Valentine @teagangeneviene —

Friday, July 24, 2020 I’m terribly late to the party.  I only just found this review by Mae Clair of “Fiona Finch and the Pink Valentine.”  That she read it this summer is proof that it’s not just a Valentine’s tale.  Mae took my breath away when she said, “the descriptions dazzle like a kaleidoscope … More Book Review from the Pen of Mae Clair: Fiona Finch and the Pink Valentine @teagangeneviene —

You READ – but do you leave REVIEWS? – by Chris Graham (aka The Story Reading Ape)

Thursday, July 16, 2020 I don’t reblog posts very often, but this one by Chris Graham was a must.  Many indie writers charge very little for their books.  If you don’t like a book then, fine — everyone has different tastes.  However, if you enjoyed it, leaving a good review in return for that pleasure … More You READ – but do you leave REVIEWS? – by Chris Graham (aka The Story Reading Ape)

Wednesday Review — Brother Love

Wednesday, July 8, 2020  First, I apologize to anyone who received my accidental posts. The scheduling option I typically use wasn’t working properly.  Actually it disappeared entirely…   Welcome to my sanctuary.  Last Wednesday’s post went to the cats.  This one is for the birds!  Or one bird anyhow.  I’m talking about Jinx, my magpie character.  … More Wednesday Review — Brother Love

Named the Kitten

Wednesday, June 10, 2020 Last week, quite unexpectedly, a kitten wandered into my novel in progress.  On a whim, I invited everyone to give me name suggestions for him. Those of you who know I’m a “cat person” are probably surprised that the kitten was a surprise to me… but I already had two other … More Named the Kitten

Name the Kitten

Wednesday, June 3, 2020 I wasn’t going to do a midweek post.  However, yesterday, I started playing with something on Facebook.  When several people came out to play along, I decided to continue the game here.  A strange little kitten (unexpected by me) poked his nose into my novel in progress.  On a whim, I … More Name the Kitten

Review by Teri Polen, Fiona Finch and the Pink Valentine! #bookreview #steampunk — Books and Such

Thursday, May 28, 2020 I’m tickled pink to learn about this wonderful review of my steampunk novelette.  Put your feet up and enjoy a whimsical break with this quick, lighthearted story.

This is … More Review by Teri Polen, Fiona Finch and the Pink Valentine! #bookreview #steampunk — Books and Such

Wednesday Writing with the Senses — Hearing

Hearing, Sight, Smell, Taste, Touch Wednesday, April 15, 2020 Traditionally those are the five senses.  I suddenly decided to rerun this mini-series on The Senses.  I originally did this series five years ago, so maybe it’s fitting.

Wednesday Writing — Characters & Social Isolation

Wednesday, April 1, 2020 Happy hump day, everyone!  In keeping with the current, surreal version of “normal,” I wondered what my characters might think about social isolation.  I’ve had a lot of characters.  The one who “spoke” loudest about the topic is Birdie Devovo, heroine of Brother Love — a Crossroad. You see, Birdie experienced more … More Wednesday Writing — Characters & Social Isolation

Laughter is good medicine — snorts are even better. #FreeBook

Wednesday, March 25, 2020 Laughter, they say, is the best medicine.  So, wouldn’t be even better when something makes you snort? I write all sorts of stories.  I’ve been told that I do some genre mash-ups.  However, there’s one thing you can count on with my stories — whimsy.  In the universe of Atonement, Tennessee, … More Laughter is good medicine — snorts are even better. #FreeBook
