Cold, Fantasy, Slatternly Monkey

For once, I’m not talking about The Stone Monkey, Sun Wu-Kong, The Handsome Monkey King. I’m condensing my recommendations into a supposedly catchy blog title. Did it catch your attention? Then my work here is done.

No, no, no, it isn’t. I’m just getting started!

Okay, I’ve recommended this lady’s blog before, when it was Life on the Muskoka River. Now Cathy has moved to Cold Lake, and her blog is called — wait for it — Cold Lake Cathy. It’s just as funny and just as warm and just as well-worth reading.

I need to remind you about Ash Krafton’s Fall Into Fantasy Giveaway, wherein tens of writers (including me) are giving away FREE BOOKS between October 17 and 21. Come an’ get ’em!

SCRjacksuitI’ve been having a blast playing with PicMonkey online photo editor. You can click on Make a Collage, crop and resize it to the size you want, and save it — blank — to your computer. Then, on the PicMonkey site, click on Edit Photo, upload that blank, and mess around with backgrounds, words, and fonts to make shareable quotes like the one next to this paragraph. Because I needed another time-suck, right?

Finally, a blog that’s new to me, but I’ve subscribed, because I have the same love-hate relationship with Martha Stewart that Wendie Winslow has, but I’m much, much less funny about it. The Kitchen Slattern. Yo.

If you’re in the Corydon, Indiana, area tomorrow, October 19, 2013, come on over to the library between 10am and 2pm. T. Lee Harris, Joanna Foreman, and I will be selling our books.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: How does your main character prefer to waste time?



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.

    My vampire heroine, Callie London, likes Kentucky bourbon and (sometimes) branch. Her vampire friends, Meg, Rosie, and Carol, will drink widely in the clear liquor section, exotic vodkas,edible tequila, etc. They all, particularly Rosie, like to go pubbing and will select the most exotic craft brews they can get their hands on. Some examples: Blackened Voodoo from New Orleans, Newcastle Werewolf ;), Yeti Stout, Holy Grale Ale, etc.
    I will get going on your recommends. Thanks.
