I’M ONE ARE YOU?

First week of the month, so it’s time for my usual rambling thoughts. A while ago I gave an after luncheon talk entitled ‘The Golden Age’ – when was it? Well from a British point of view it was the Baby Boomer generation into which I was born. I thought I would share it with … Continue reading I’M ONE ARE YOU? Original link

Meet Suzanne Jenkins and Check Out THE BRIDE WORE LEATHER, her Contemporary Romance


THE BRIDE WORE LEATHER A Bittersweets: Oscar and Lisa Sequel by Suzanne Jenkins Genre: Contemporary Romance Lisa stood on her toes to reach Oscar’s lips. Muscle memory clicked in, remembering what the others lips felt like, how perfectly their mouths fit together, the line of their bodies melding. They were getting a second chance. The only thing they didn’t know is what total intimacy would be like, because Oscar had been too afraid. But he wasn’t afraid now. The sanctuary of Saint Albert in Germantown was abuzz as Ed Penn entered the church alone. Rather than walking down the aisle like he would have if his daughter, Lisa was on his arm, he scooted over to the side aisle and briskly marche...

A brief rant

11848986
Now something weird happened, and I think I will vent my frustration and my preoccupation here. Sorry to use you guys as a lightning rod, but sometimes blogs are also useful as safety valves. The thing goes like this. I am told that many of the ills of our current culture depend on the fact that we grew up with the Classics, that are basically books written by misogynistic, racist white heterosexual males, and therefore we all turned out—well, bad. Having enjoyed the works of, say, Charles Dickens, I am obviously a misogynist with little or no respect for other cultures 1 . The thing, in all honesty, reminded me of the old George Orwell warning, that any kid growing up with Tarzan would turn...

The Amazing Story of Cardinal Thomas Wolsey’s Tomb


On November 29, 1530, Thomas Wolsey died, having been taken ill with colic after eating a supper of baked pears. (I think it was rather convenient, as he was on his way to be tried for treason, and was not expected to go quietly – could the pears have been poisoned?) Sadly, Wolsey’s remains were lost, although it is believed that he is buried somewhere around Leicester Abbey. (In a car park?) The Abbey was destroyed during Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries in 1538, and only the outline of some buildings remain. Cardinal Wolsey was a wealthy man and had exciting plans for his funeral and entombment in a magnificent edifice of black and white marble and gilded bronze. He’d already ha...

Graffiti outdone

Graffiti outdone
For the last several years these walls have been covered with graffiti–the spray painted foul language kind. Every so often the building owners had the walls painted over, but within a few weeks the graffiti reappeared. Then, last year, they hired a young girl to do her thing. Today, I noted happily that her street are was fresh and graffiti free. http://www.darlenejonesauthor.com Original link

Planning a launch.

anthcov2
When my writers’ group put together an anthology recently we planned a launch for the beginning of March. We: Ordered extra copiesBooked a table in a local bookshop (who put the date in their Facebook calendar)Talked about it on our own blogs, Facebook Twitter etc.Mentioned it (more than once) to friendsOrganised a press releaseHad a slot on local radioPut the date in our own diaries to make sure we turned up to do our stint on the sales. What could possibly go wrong? Well, the weather could! On the Friday it snowed. And snowed … By Saturday morning roads were impassable so the bookshop owner couldn’t get in to open his shop, and most of us couldn’t get there anyway for the same reason. All ...

Writing the historical fiction of the present.


I love writing historical fiction because it is one of the most difficult genres of all, demanding a complete immersion in the era and studying every detail--in clothing, gadgets, hairstyle, manners and of course, the timeline of events--in order to make the story not only believable but utterly authentic. I pride myself on writing with a sensual slant, aiming to put you in the skin of the characters and stir your heart  where their passion touches yours . In writing, I often break the confines of the particular genre, because life as we know it–and my art, which mirrors it– constantly changes from one genre to the next. One moment is is humorous; the next, it is erotic; then, it might be a ...

Blooms and Thorns of May


Most definitely May 2018 was one of the most exciting and annoying months. When my heart bloomed and my soul wept with frustration. Good news? My  Twitter  profile got its first 10,000 followers! My  LinkedIn  profile hit the number of 4,000 friends and followers! Fantastic news! Care to join my old and new followers? Would be so cool! May 9 was a good day. An excellent day, because the  paperback edition  of my novella Look for Me Under the Rainbow has been released on  Amazon . Oh, happy day! Happy was also May 22 when my copies were released by Croatian customs and arrived at my home! Celebration! And then frustration! Boring and long frustration just like all those GDPR notifications pil...

Better Blogging Topics For Authors


No Wasted Ink Photo by Andrew Neel on Unsplash Traditional wisdom states that if you are an author, you should have a blog to attract readers to your work. The experts tell you to write about your characters, plots, world-building, how your novel is coming along and don’t forget to toss in a little about your cat. Now, I can already hear you moan: “Where is the traffic?” “Writing a blog is hard!” “Isn’t blogging a dead end?” “Nobody cares about my book before I publish it.” And you would be right on all accounts. Blogging about a novel when no one knows who you are is a wasted activity. If you are not publishing your story as a serial, few will care about plotlines or characters. The only pe...
