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.

Christmas Shopping

Christmas Shopping:

How many of you have already started your cross stitch Christmas project and your Christmas Shopping? Are you making a quilt for Christmas or any other Christmas Prezzies? If so we want to hear about it today and have you found some really great Christmas bargins?

I know it is only September 2nd but the holidays are right around the corner and if you're book buying for Christmas you might be able to find some really sweet deals right now and the same goes for cross stitch patterns.

I usually pick up things all year round but this year I have been so busy it hasn't happened and I was just thinking today that I need to start thinking about what I want to do this year. I do know I am doing a stitched Christmas Sampler for my house.

However today I am starting my fall and Halloween stitching then will return to the sampler. I stayed up until 1:45 this morning to finish the snowman I was stitching and now will put the sampler aside until my fall projects are stitched.

So what about you how is the pre holiday stitching and shopping going for you this year?




  1. I am still thinking Halloween....


  2. Yeah I'm at Halloween right now but sooner rather than later I must begin the dreaded holiday shopping. Holiday stitching no problem. Holiday shopping seems rather overwhelming at this point so I fear this year I will break it down.

  3. NO! I'm not ready. I haven't done a tenth of the things I was going to do this summer. I can't even think of Halloween much less Christmas!

    (Do you think this is the mind set that always allows holidays to sneak up on me and catch me unprepared?)
