Enjoy some Mayhem & Magic!

Our blog is meant to evoke fun with the magic of myths, folklore, movies and the mayhem of murder and madness. We have to keep it interesting so if you like different genres of movies and books then you're at the right blog. Our authors are a wide range of experts and our readers know what is top of the line in their favorite genres. Sometimes we post recipes that might be fun to try if a culinary author has one in her book that we think is especially yummy or one that Terri and I have created and want to share with you. Enjoy Guest Blogger Alice Duncan's monthly muse on her books and writing mysteries.

Plus you won't want to miss our book reviews, author interviews or our guest bloggers. So grab your favorite beverage then join us for some magic and mayhem! The good news is that you don't have to leave the house or your comfy chair. We have something for everyone's taste and every month we have a different topic for our bloggers: ones we feel that might be useful in your own writing and reader points of view. Not to mention, life in general. So join us and be sure to have a notebook handy as your to-be-read pile will grow as you add books, recipes, movies and t.v. series you won't want to miss. Not to mention folktales, myths or ideas you may wish to explore. Be careful what you wish for because on mayhemandmagic2 you just might find it.

Email addicts unite!

Are you an email addict? I know I am and I think there should be a support group for all of us who are. I remember when I didn't have email and I got so much more done. My house looked better, I felt better and life did seem to be simpler. Now days when my computer crashes I have a meltdown, when email is sluggish I think "Was it something I said?" When I CAN get on email and everything goes smoothly then I can do other things (even cross stitch) but if email is down so it seems am I.

Am I the only one with this affliction? Watching movies or television isn't even the same. The only thing that gets me through no mail is reading because I read mysteries someone else is always has a worse day than I do and it's true - misery does love company. 

However what I really love is knowing that others come through their misery to a brighter spot. Last year I had a lot of misery when I went through email withdrawal several times as three computer bit the dust. I'm living proof you can live through no email but it isn't pretty. 

Since it's February and my computer is working and the weather isn't working for me I want to hear if you're an email addict and do you have to make yourself do other things? 



  1. I am addicted to many things - and email is definitely one of them.


  2. I am an email addict. I didn't think that I was until I read your blog. Sigh. I guess if it's reading in my world, it's all good. LOL

  3. See how it creeps up on you! LOLOL and I do think it's all about the reading. Readers and author just have to know....what we are missing! I know curiosity killed the cat oh that reminds me I need to order another Blaize Clement mystery.....LOL and Leann Sweeney's cat mystery gosh you never know when the computer will go down! LOL
