Real life

November 1, 2012 | Uncategorized

Reality interferes with the important stuff, like dreaming up new stories and writing down the ones in my head. So does blogging. In my real life there’s no time transporter. :sad: The stories come first with me, no great surprise to regular visitors.

At least once a week I’ll still post news and/or snippets. From time to time I’ll share a book I enjoyed reading. But (you knew that was coming) I’m not going to be running daily posts.

Check back when the mood hits, maybe there’ll be something new…

KevaD, my friend and critique partner has a release from Decadent, Kantu’s Heart!

When Sandra Harn drove her minivan in to Freewill, Wyoming, she had no idea her life would depend on the skills of a cave-dwelling warrior who died fifty thousand years ago. After all, she just came for the rummage sale.

Before the ice age, the warrior Kantu lost his tribe, his mate Sanda, and his life to a vicious band of cannibals led by the powerful Paool. What Kantu doesn’t know is his destiny lies beyond the death that took him and stole Sanda. When he awakens, he is plagued by a world beyond his comprehension, a civilization of towns with people who want to capture him and study his very existence. But at a festival honoring Native American traditions, Kantu sees Sanda… in the arms of Paool, and all of Kantu’s misery and strength meld into one goal – to win back his heart and kill Paool.

Sandra Harn was found abandoned as an infant and raised by her guardian “Uncle” Max. Submitting to an urge she can’t explain, she drives to Freewill, WY, for the annual rummage sale and, hopefully, to find a connection between herself and an ancient fang Max had given her. In Freewill, a second fang opens Sandra’s mind to visions of a past before the town existed, when few men walked the earth. As she questions her sanity, she finds a friend in Paul Carson, a successful real estate agent with questionable dealings.

The more Sandra learns of Paul, the more she wants to uncover his shroud of mystery. Still, Paul is everything she ever dreamed of in a man – handsome, wealthy, and seemingly devoted to her. Until she spots an exotic stranger with flowing raven hair, three claw scars across his chest, and an iron desire to kill Paul. Logic tells her to run, but her body screams surrender.

On Thursdays I don’t get a lot of writing done. I run around attending to the real world stuff, grocery shopping, gas, and errands are all lumped into Thursday. Add in the daily chore list, plus a little socializing, and it makes for a full day.

When Friday rolls around, I’m eager to get back to the story. The break works for me like a day apart from a new lover. :lol:

What are you eagerly anticipating?

You know how some people are all about their cell phones, keeping them charged, using them constantly to text, call, and surf? I’m pretty much the same way about my Kindle. :lol:

What can’t you live without?

Paper and ink versus ereader is such an apples and oranges kind of thing. It’s like comparing horses and cars. There will always be horses (I hope) and people who love them, but as transportation for the average city/suburb dweller they aren’t efficient.

While researching it dawned on me that there are at least one or two generations of readers who aren’t interested in reading digital ink releases. Places like Goodreads (a social media site for readers) only allow hard copy book giveaways. Dead-tree books will be around for a long time. Simple economics tells me they’re going to premium priced as their market shrinks. And the market is changing rapidly.

The reasons I buy digital titles are similar to why I drive a car instead of riding a horse. I read a lot, so even with an active library account, disposing of paper and ink books was an on going problem. The idea of moving cartons and cartons of books struck terror into my heart. Paper and ink editions don’t have adjustable font sizes, search features, built in book marks, or dictionaries. They’re frequently large and awkward to pack, the paperback edition fall apart after half a dozen gentle readings. and they’re a pain to dust.

Thanks to the Kindle, I’ve cut way back to five full size bookcases and two half size ones of the unwieldy volumes I need. I foresee further reductions ahead. :lol:

Do you see paper books going the way of vinyl records and beta max video tapes? Or will there always be a place for bound books?

Lauren Dane’s stories just keep getting better and she’s prolific. Two of my favorite traits in an author.

Who all is on your go-to list of paranormal romance authors?

Random research, dragons are usually portrayed as forces of evil, but the guy in the picture , zmaj is a protector. :heart:

This was one of the things I loved about Dragon Bound. Thea Harrison chose a dragon hero to begin her Elder Race series.

Do you have a favorite dragon?

Crab Apple blossoms from a few days ago. Like the cherry blossoms festival in Japan, I always feel I should stop everything and just enjoy the few, short days the apple trees are in full beauty.

Posted just so y’all know I’m serious about what I do when I’m not writing. For those wanting more details, you’re welcome to stop by Beyond The Garden Gate anytime. Now and then the mood strikes and I post new pics. :heart:

What are your passions?
