New tools

logo_todoist_schema
I just started using a tool that is likely to improve and streamline  somewhat the way I attack my workload. It’s pretty popular, as far as I know, and it’s called Todoist . Basically it is a list-making tool, a scheduler. You put in the stuff you have to do, with dates and details. You can flag and prioritise the single entries, and it’s got a lot of nifty bits. You can use it on your smartphone (I don’t) or on your PC, where it appears as a plugin for both your browser and your mail client. I usually key in Title, brief description of each interesting open callThe URL with the complete call descriptionThe deadline And this is helping me a lot. Right now, I’m looking at a call that goes lik...

My heart went into overdrive until I talked it back


Chaos reigned. More men were fleeing the compound than were rushing inside. I rushed forward, but based on my mental picture of the basic layout and the smell of gas in the air, I guessed the explosion came from the kitchen at the back of the main house. If I remembered correctly, there was a service entrance there for food and supply delivery. God bless, Bella mia. I veered away from the front door and ran toward the side of the house and hoped to hell I could make it to the back service entrance without anyone stopping me—and without anyone following me. Because there was a damn good chance I’d find Isabella there. Somewhere. Maybe driving a truck escaping down the service driveway to free...

FEATURED AUTHOR: SHELLY FROME


ABOUT THE BOOK For tour guide Emily Ryder, the turning point came on that fatal early morning when her beloved mentor met an untimely death. It's labeled as an accident and Trooper Dave Roberts is more interested in Emily than in any suspicions over Chris Cooper's death. For Emily, if Chris hadn't been the Village Planner and the only man standing in the way of the development of an apartment and entertainment complex in their quaint village of Lydfield, Connecticut, she might have believed it was an accident, but too many pieces didn't fit. As Emily heads across the pond for a prescheduled tour of Lydfield's sister village, Lydfield-in-the-Moor, she discovers that the murderer may be closer...

Teotihuacan – Empire of Enigma

Two pyramids at Teotihuacan,
Pyramid of the Sun, Pyramid of the Moon at Teotihuacan Teotihuacan: Central Mexico Empire With Wide Influence into Maya Regions. A huge city was built in the Basin of Mexico, not far northeast of modern Mexico City. It flourished in these highlands between 150 BCE-650 CE, and for much of that time it was the largest city in pre-Columbian Americas. Population at its height was estimated at 125,000, making it among the world’s top 10 cities at the time. The architecture and layout were unique. There were multi-family residential compounds, apartments of several stories, towering pyramids, streets laid out in a grid pattern, and a 1.3 mile-long central avenue bordered by splendid elite residenc...

Shopping suggestions mystery

fadfae60-1061-4d45-b1ab-b2f7e14d41cd
What would be our life without a little mystery. Here’s my little mystery from the last two weeks or thereabouts. I get mails from Amazon.it. My favorite pusher of books and assorted stuff sends me a mail once in a while suggesting stuff I might like. Because evidently Amazon.it likes to play it safe, these lists of stuff I might like usually include ten items, eight of which are taken from my Amazon wishlist and/or from my recent browsing history, including stuff I have actually bought, with two other titles thrown in for good measure. Now I find it markedly stupid on Amazon’s part to suggest to me I buy something I already wish to buy, but who knows, maybe it’s one of those psychology thin...

More writing, more stories

pulp_writer
Some people make their plans for the new year in December, but I still have this schoolboy attitude, to me the new year begins in September. Or something. Anyway, I think I mentioned my idea about writing more stories, and submitting them to magazines and anthologies and publishers. Sort of a good proposition for the coming year. Well, the experiment is working. In the last thirty days I have submitted five stories to as many publishers, for a total of about 20.000 words. Two thrillers. Two science fiction shorts. One horror story. This not counting the things I wrote for my Patrons, and my other stuff that I will self-publish, or my gaming material. Not bad, but it could be better. What I w...

Copy of A Penny's Worth by Cynthia Austin (REPOST)

Damn, she did it again. The last time I read one of this woman's books I absolutely was sucked in and loved it. This one is even better than the last one!  I’ve been a fan of this author since I read her first book, and when this one came out it went right on my reading list. Finally I get to it and it didn’t disappoint. This book exceeded my expectations and then some. Not to mention the fact that she totally surprised me, didn't see that coming at all! And let me tell you, I'm damn hard to surprise.   Her characters are just so good. Real, conflicted, layered people. Not one dimensional bits of fluff that I've read in other books.  She does a brilliant job creating this world and the peopl...

Lots of Author Stuff You Need to Know

february-calendar-page-clipart-1
This blog is all about sharing ideas and information about writing, to writers and authors. Mostly, I share this information solely by way of a post, or two, on this blog. Occasionally, however, a blog post is not enough. The amount and complexity of the information given are far too great, as with the following. In these instances, I find it best if I assemble all the information and bind it together in one place. In other words, make it into a book. Recently, I have published a second book dedicated to answering questions I am frequently and regularly asked by novice and established writers and authors. This post is an introduction to that book. In February this year (2018), I published an...

How I met my husband


No, this isn’t my version of the TV show How I met your mother. I certainly am not that funny. Yesterday was my husband’s 46th birthday. We met 26 years ago last month and began dating two months later. I always tell people who ask how we met that he just one day turned up on my doorstep. And for the most part that is true. Twenty-six years ago, I was in my junior year of college. I shared an on-campus apartment with three other women – my best friend Kate, our friend from high school Joy and Barbara, a friend of Joy’s. It was a pretty nice arrangement. We each had our own bedroom, two bathrooms, a common area living room and a full kitchen with an attached dining area. There were two doors ...
