Okay I freely admit it I am a blog addict. I love spending time every morning reading a few favorite blogs. It doesn't matter if the floor needs swept because I don't look down. It doesn't matter what I look like sitting at my computer laughing or spewing my coffee (there are some very funny authors who blog), because when I am reading a blog I get to escape into other bloggers reality or fictional world. It feels good and I don't have to turn on the television set and click channels to find something entertaining to keep me interested. 
Bloggers are my friends and true I mostly read author blogs but have been known to read other blogs.  I won't lie there are some days like the weekend that the weather channel can keep me amused but most mornings it's blogs that I look forward to especially this blog because I love to read the replies and we have a counter to keep track of how many visitors we get and YES I am addicted to checking the counter.
I have a life and I am an author I have family, friends and good books to keep me company. I have hobbies and a husband I definitely love my dog but what keeps me sane and ready to face each day are the blogs that I read. So bloggers keep up the good work. A couple I read are The Lipstick Chronicles, Cozy Chicks Blog, Margaritas and Mayhem, and The Writer's Plot. After that I might sweep the floor and look in the mirror. Right now I am especially interested in one of the blogs because the authors have set up where their characters are blogging and I wished I had thought of that idea because it's a good one. It's a way to get to know the character better and it's a way to know if you are going to like a series before you buy the book. I can see this idea catching on swiftly with other bloggers and I say brilliant idea.
Terri and I strive to be different we not only interview and guest author bloggers but instead also have quilters, cross stitchers, reviwers and a whole host of other bloggers. Our topics very and we NEVER want you to be bored when reading our blog. After all I know how important it is NOT to be bored first thing in the morning.



  1. And feel free to offer suggestions of topics you might enjoy....

  2. Well I noticed a few mistakes near the end. I should have FINISHED my coffee before writing it very should be vary and review is spelled review not reviw SIGH I shall chant the rest of the day spell check is my friend-spell check is my friend.

  3. I discovered your fun blog. Nice job!

    You might find that a tad more white space makes blog entries easier to read. Extra spaces between paragraphs is what I mean.

    I almost always go back and correct my blog entries right after I post and reread them. :)

  4. I do enjoy reading this blog.

  5. Recently discovered your blog and it is FUN!
    No coffee, no letters because the fingers don't work (or maybe the laptop needs the coffee?). Sometimes without coffee I read what I typed and it's worse than my handwriting!

Upside Down Post

Upside Down Post:

Yurn your frown upside down into a smile as this post is for those who do not enjoy the family gatherings at Christmas. You know who you are and why but today I thought it would be fun to have a little fun.

This is a "Would you rather" reply when someone asks what you would rather do get through the holidays than spend it with family?

1. I'd rather drop a house on my sister.

2. Have a root canal

3. Eat fruitcake even the store bought kind.

4. Have my neighbor tell me about her colon in great detail

5. Dust

6. Watch my cat chase and kill a mouse

7. Hear the neighbor's dogs barking all night long.

8. Shovel snow

9. Open my prezzies and discover everyone sent me clothes two sizes too small. What is family for but to get the sizes wrong even after they call and ask.

10. I'd rather read a good murder mystery set at Christmas this would make it a killer holiday for me.

Okay you all come up with your own funny list and I can't wait to see what you have. Oh one…

An Interview with Frances Brody

MM: Frances, give us the back story on how and when you became an author?
I started by telling stories. I’d walk home from school with a friend and spin some tale that would last till the parting of our ways at the corner shop. In my twenties, I wrote stories that were published in magazines and broadcast on BBC Radio. I then wrote radio and theatre plays and scripts for television. My first novel was based on stories told to me by my mother.
MM: Tell us about what you are currently writing and what has been released?
I’m editing the eighth Kate Shackleton novel, Death at the Seaside. My setting is Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Whitby is where Bram Stoker has Count Dracula land in the Russian ship Demeter in the shape of a black dog. Dracula doesn’t appear in my story. But if he did, Kate Shackleton and her trusty assistants, Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, would deal with him.My latest release in the US is Kate Shackleton #5, Murder on a Summer’s Day. In the UK, it’s #7, A Death in the…

Review - Yellow as Legal Pads by Fran Stewart

Biscuit and Bob are on their honeymoon when Bob tries to help someone dying with resuscitation efforts that leave him poisoned and in ICU.

The story time hops a lot and introduces a lot of characters and isn't really your typical amateur sleuth asking questions all over town.

It is a series of pieces out of the life of the Holvers family and events that led to the current situation she and Bob are in.

It is interesting and complex at times but satisfying as the pieces come together.

I saw several reviews where the number of characters and time hopping frustrated readers and I admit, I had to pause a few times to make sure I was in tune to everything going on, but I thought it was fun a non-traditional which was a bit refreshing.
