Here's a sweet story for children. Brady is a sensitive young boy who takes his blanket wherever he goes. After traveling with his parents to visit his new cousin, Brady accidentally leaves his blankie behind. Can Brady learn to get by without his blankie?

Oh my goodness. My daughter had one of those blankets. For some really odd reason, she walked around with it stuffed in her mouth. *Laugh* Kids....
Here's another great story for this time of year: Night of Magic.

Product Type: Kindle
Amazon's Price: $ 0.99

Night of Magic…Samhain—Dark…Dangerous…Powerful…The year is 800 A.D. on the Emerald Isle, and Prince Jasper is determined to regain that which has been lost to him.

Five years past, Princess Aithne was taken from her father, Prince Jasper, by the forces of the Other World. On Samhain, the veil between the worlds is thin, and can be breeched more readily—especially if one walks amid the ceremonial bonfires.

When Princess Aithne disappears, her father vows every year to bring her back. He tempts many champions with a chest of gold, but only one man can succeed.

This year, Finn is determined to lay claim to that treasure, but to do so, he must tempt Fate. Will he survive his journey to the Other World to bring the princess back? Will he dare follow his heart? Or will greed determine what lies in store for him on this NIGHT OF MAGIC?

Mind you, I'm always looking for reviews to book marketing sites so if you don't mind rating or reviewing, it's much appreciated. Let me know and I'll drop you a merit badge. *Smile*
Busy as a Bee here in SoCal. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I always enjoy the cooler weather and how beautiful the leaves are when they start changing. Do you decorate your lawn for October? I used to make a graveyard but I'm thinking of turning it into a pumpkin patch this year.

Here's a great story for the fall:
Product Type: Kindle

Rachel’s secret would have Cotton Mather rolling over in his grave. She’s been raised from an early age to use magic for good, despite her temptation to cast a spell against Phil the bully who can’t stop teasing her.

Joe thinks Rachel is cool, especially when she weaves her healing magic on him, but he’s got his own problems. It’s not easy keeping Rachel safe from Phil’s constant threats.

When Phil poisons Rachel, can love and a little young witchcraft bring Rachel and Joe together or have the years of Phil’s bullying ruined their relationship for good?
Hey! I just figured out I can watch DVD on the XBox. (because my dog ate the remote for the DVD player downstairs.) -- Back to watching The Winds of War !! One of my favorite mini series. Anyone else want to share their favorite 1980's mini series?
I can't even remember any '80's miniseries. Lol

I'm glad you can watch your DVDs again. You should also be able to buy a universal remote for the DVD player. Get the brand and model and ask at Best Buy. *Smile*
I *HeartO* "The Winds of War." I was in love with Jan-Michael Vincent. I swore if I ever had a baby boy, I'd name him Byron. *Wink* But I had a girl. LOL Other good '80s miniseries: "War and Remembrance," "Shogun," "Masada," "North and South," "The Blue and the Gray," "Centennial"... so many good ones! I feel like I watched them all.

Oooh, who could forget "The Thorn Birds"!
You didn't name your girl Byrona or Byronette, Cass -- Harvest Spirit? *Laugh*

I was actually named after the little boy in the book, The Yearling. Mom read it at aged 12 and decided, boy or girl, that was going to be the name of her first born. She had me at 33, so I KNOW she loved MY name! *Bigsmile* My brother, on the other hand...they were still debating on the way to the hospital. *Laugh*
Happy Labor Day to all! I'm working the holiday. The family and I went to Ventura on Saturday and celebrated with a fish feast at one of the local restaurants called Andria's. Love to hear your plans.

Memorial Day Flowers 2021
Yes, I remember. We worked all holidays at 911. I remember the 'shock' when I changed jobs. 8-4, M-F, holidays off. I almost felt normal. *Smile* Hope its' a reasonably quiet day.
In the Army, I was always stationed in hospitals so I never got holidays off. But now I'm a student so I'm out helping a friend decide which new workout clothes make her look thin enough to go to the gym. Hahaha
Hope everyone had a great summer!! Let's just say I'm still recovering from vacay. Hope to have more that adventure soon. For now, I'll leaving you with my latest poll:
What attracts you to buy a romance novel?
      The Author. I've read them before and like their writing style
      The cover, for sure!
      The blurb hooks me!
      The title sucks me in.
      I'm a sucker for a happy ending
I'll read a series of books when I like the author. That said, I seldom read a "romance" and if it's formulaic or cliche? *ack* I prefer romance mixed wih mystery, ghosts, history, fantasy, LGBTQ... something.
I hear ya when it comes to formulaic or cliche. Heck, I grew up on Victoria Holt. I loved the gothic style romances. I think Rebecca Brandywine also was another gothic author I enjoyed.
Here's a great young adult story for this time of year. Appreciate the support. Let me know if you review it on Amazon and I'll send a Merit Badge your way

I just bought Young Witchcraft. Read the first four pages. I believe I am hooked. Recognized the Author's Name. I like to check on romance every once in a while. The truth is I don't normally read them. As a Sci-fi and Fantasy writer I steal Ideas from Romance writers on dealing with romance. The problem is I get hooked on the book especially the way StephB spins a tale.
Awww... I'm glad you are hooked! Nothing wrong with stealing an idea, spinning 'em your way and applying them to fit you. Glad you enjoy it so far! If you don't mind --- let me know if you drop a review. If I get up to 8, I can start booking more marketing sites. Appreciate the support.
July is National Ice Cream month so I made this poll:

How many licks does it take to finish a single scoop of ice cream?
      35 licks
      40 licks
      50 licks
      65 licks
Well, depends if it's coffee flavored ice cream.
Most puppies? 5 or 10? A dog? 2?
Depends on how hot it is outside!
I just want to THANK everyone who sent me a merit badge. What a WONDERFUL surprise to pop in and find my inbox filled with such love. I was happy to judge the Quills in such a challenging category. ((hugs)) to everyone who sent me a badge. I really appreciate it.
It's vacation time! Just an FYI -- I am finally taking a vacation!!

Sun 27 June through Sat, 3 July I am on Catalina Island at BSA Camp Emerald Bay.

Then on 4 Jul to 15 July I fly out to NH to visit family and friends. and I'll be back 19 July maybe the 17th or 18th, if I'm done decompressing.

I will definitely miss my WDC family while on VC.
