The Delta Pearl — Dry dock due to bad Internet

Saturday, September 19, 2020   Apologies, my chuckaboos.

This is  my safe haven where we can relax in the comfort and encouragement of each other’s presence — free of bullies and passive aggressive princesses.  Although, I’m allowing certain “punks.”  That’s my prerogative as proprietress and bouncer.

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.

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)

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.

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

Saturday, January 11, 2020 Happy weekend, my chuckaboos!  You must be tired of hearing me complain — I’ve had “the everything flu” for two weeks.  I’m finally doing better, although sinus and tummy issues are still trying to hang on.  Anyhow, after two weeks of it, I’m purely exhausted and couldn’t get a chapter of  … More Delta Pearl Delay

Wednesday, January 8, 2020 Announcing my first non-fiction book!  Well, not exactly. In my long career of writing and editing in the “Federal world,” I produced volumes and volumes of non-fiction.  However, I didn’t get the credit for that work.  So, I should say that this is my first independently published non-fiction book.
