The Joshua Tree


Good morning and welcome to Thursday Thoughts. This month, we’re focusing on paranormal books. There will be a lot of visitors making an appearance but on Sundays and Tuesdays, this blog will be all about things that go bump in the night! Ghosts, ghouls, demons, you name it and I find it fascinating. Anything that can’t be proven becomes a story in my head, a way to explain those mysterious bumps in the night or things moving when no one is near them. Oh, I’ve heard all the explanations about how it could be cars driving past or a minor earthquake—good luck proving the second one to me. I can feel earthquakes, having grown up in an area where they abound. Welcome Vicki-Ann Bush to the blog t...

Kate Morton Visits Kitchener


Yesterday evening, I attended “An Evening with Kate Morton” at the central branch of the Kitchener Public Library. A packed auditorium and overflow room greeted the international best-selling author of The House of Riverton , The Forgotten Garden , The Distant Hours , The Secret Keeper , and The Lake House . Her latest release, The Clockmaker’s Daughter , is one of the Top 10 books of 2018 (Indigo). After reading a short excerpt from The Clockmaker’s Daughter, Kate participated in an armchair conversation with Kitchener writer, Kayleigh Platz. The time flew quickly as Kate shared her writing journey and details about her novels. One of three daughters, Kate was born and raised in Australia. ...

Are you prepared to feast with your enemies?


Every year, I work hard to prepare a perfect Thanksgiving feast. At times, the thought of quarrels flaring up between family members during this feast may dampen my enthusiasm. Maybe you face similar concerns in your festive meal, do you? Imagine how much more explosive the occasion may become, when the feast is a royal one, and the family members are those who would like to throw you off your throne, take your place, and obliterate your legacy. With this in mind, here are three excerpts from the three volumes of my trilogy, The David Chronicles. Each excerpt describes a royal feast in my heres life with its underlying intrigue. For an entire week following the wedding I have found myself ob...

The Hyborian Cookbook, a Gimmick

567bfbd07a1d79c3f8c62956c11cc7c4
The problem with insomnia (yes, she’s here again 1 ) is that while you lay awake in your bed at 4 am, you get the weirdest ideas. Like… The Hyborian Cookbook A series of recipes written in the style of Robert E. Howard at his worst, or his clones and copy-cats at their average. Stuff like… He flexed his mighty-thewed arms and closed his fist on the eggs. With a swift motion, he cracked them on the rim of the bowl, a sinister sound like the breaking of a human neck. I let the yolks fall in the bowl and then slashed at them with his fork, blue steel glinting, the fine porcelain from Kithay ringing like a bell as he mixed them. He added a pinch of salt, from the shores of the Sea of Vilayet. Pe...

Most Misinterpreted Scripture Verses – Matthew 7:1

Texas Jewel by Melissa Alexia

Those of you that know me, or follow my blog, you know that I don’t often post books that I don’t care for. But this one… let’s let the review speak for itself. First of all, I am from Texas and It really bothered me that this character is supposed to be representing us down here. We have a hard enough time with the rest of the world thinking we are all bow-legged country folk that chew straw and ride horses to work as it is, without this crap. But let me back up a touch. When I opened this book I had high hopes, sounded like a nice chick-lit style suspense. It was disappointing when it fell flat right away. While reading this, I got lost and confused so many times. I found myself flipping b...

Power of Creativity and A Sultry Performance Cover Reveal


Sitting at breakfast at the New Jersey Romance Writers Conference several years back, I remember being especially moved.  Conferences are designed to motivate us as writers, to bring together a community of people who share a similar passion so that we can all learn, motivate and inspire one another.  But this particular speaker blew my mind.  I'm embarrassed to say that I can't even remember who our breakfast speaker was at this particular conference but she had me walking away from the table feeling like I was going to change the entire world by writing romance novels. I don't believe I've done that as of yet, but give me a little time! I started writing very young, and have been motivated...

Visit Mordavia for less than 10 bucks

177744
Halloween draws near, and you have still 19 days and a handful of hours, at the moment I’m writing this, to get hold of the Leagues of Gothic Horror bundle at Bundle of Holding. For about ten bucks you can get the basic set-up including the Leagues of Adventure roleplaying game handbook, and the two books, Leagues of Gothic Horror and Mordavia: Land of Horror, that will allow you to play a solid game of Hammer-style horror.

FEATURED AUTHOR: CYNTHIA KUHN


ABOUT THE BOOK English professor Lila Maclean knew drama would be involved when she agreed to consult on Stonedale University’s production of Puzzled: The Musical. But she didn’t expect to find herself cast into such chaos: the incomprehensible play is a disaster, the crumbling theater appears to be haunted, and, before long, murder takes center stage. The show must go on—yet as they speed toward opening night, it becomes clear that other members of the company may be targeted as well. Lila searches for answers while contending with a tenacious historical society, an eccentric playwright, an unsettling psychic, an enigmatic apparition, and a paranormal search squad. 
 With all of this in pla...

Rent-an-Uncle

ossan
OK, it all started with an article that came out one month ago on the Strait Times. For $12 an hour, a middle-aged Japanese man will listen to your woes, do chores and offer advice on things like love and life. Now that’s not a bad rate, right? I mean, 12 bucks per hour makes almost 100 bucks a day working 9 to 5. Turns out in 2012 a guy called Nishimoto Takanobu started an online service from his apartment, called Ossan Rental, basically Rent-an-Uncle, where uncle is not exactly a compliment, but rather a disparaging term to label fifty-something men. The service charges 10.000 yes per month (roughly 3 bucks per day) the “uncles” that want to make their services available to the public. Ser...
