July Update and Friday Recommends

It’s the first of the month, so I’ve put a new Hot Flash up. I’ve also snazzy-jazzy streamlined my sidebar a li’l wee bit. I changed the name of my NOVELS page and tab to BOOKS and included my short story collections, and have added links to the Nook store for them as well as links to Kindle and Smashwords. Let me know what you think of the tweaks.

Now for some recommendations.

Yesterday, Mom and I went to The Depot at the Quartermaster Station for a NETWORK meeting. The Depot is part of the African American Heritage Trail. It used to be a segregated restroom, and now all races meet and mingle and sit down and break bread together there. Here’s a link to an article about the meeting.

If you’re a fan of fantasy and science fiction, hop over to Fantasy Cookie. It’s a wonderful, beautiful book review blog full of tasty treats. You’re welcome.

Speaking of tasty treats, I’ve stumbled onto a couple of keepable recipe sites: The Vegetarian Recipe Club is based in the UK; all its recipes are not only vegetarian but vegan. (Oh, keep your shirt on–you can add meat, if you must have meat.) Syvum is an interactive educational site that includes international recipes, vegetarian and non-vegetarian. It tickles me that the recipes are “vegetarian and non-vegetarian” rather than “vegetarian and regular”. 😀

Happy weekend!

WRITING PROMPT: What would your main character think of the book you’re currently reading or just finished reading? Write a book review of that book from his/her point of view.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
