Don't be fooled. These stories are filled with romance,  suspense, and temptation. Oh, and no one seems to decline the opportunity for romps in public, with a stranger, a roommate, or the occasional affair.
Learn how forbidden love makes for strange bedfellows in these modern fairy tales of love, lust, and deception.

3T Writing Tidbit

My husband posts about creativity on Facebook. It's been helping me boost my own productivity in ways I'd never imagined.

Today (January 18, 2017) he posted one on how Isaac Asimov wrote the equivalent of a full-length novel every two weeks for 25 years (over 500, but over a lot longer period, lol). It's here: https://qz.com/886038/isaac-asimov-wrote-almost-500-books-in-his-lifetime-these-are-the-6-ways-he-did-it/

The whole article is worth reading, but what stood out was Asimov's take on the dreaded writer's block.
Frequently, when I am at work on a science-fiction novel, I find myself heartily sick of it and unable to write another word.
It's normal to get stuck. His solution? Set it aside.
I don’t stare at blank sheets of paper. [...] I simply [...] go on to any of the dozen other projects that are on tap. [...] By the time I’ve grown tired of these things, my mind has been able to do its proper work and fill up again. I return to my novel and find myself able to write easily once more.
I've done this before out of profound disgust for a project, and I practice interleaving projects to make them continuously fresh, but never have I walked consciously away from something. Going to give this one a try.

Published since 2009, over the years I've accumulated various items of writing wisdom. The Third Tuesday Writing Tidbit showcases these items in no particular order. Click here to see all 3T Tidbits.

2T Repeat Performance

In December 2016, the lovely Magical Musings crew decided it was time to close down their blogging shop. I had three wonderful years with them. I thought you might be interested in seeing those posts now.

Do You Candy Crush? -- Favorites #6 eGames--Originally posted September 17, 2014

Let’s get to know each other!

In these first months as a Magical Musings blogger, I’m sharing my 10 favorite things and hope to hear about yours.

I'm more pinball generation than video game, but I have to admit, there's something about playing computer games that appeals to me. I started out with role-playing adventure games like Quest For Glory and Baldur's Gate, though lately it seems all I have time for is three minutes of Secret Society or Candy Crush.

I'm not sure why, but electronic games give me the same feelings as seeing a bristling Christmas tree loaded with shiny ornaments or a Halloween candy bag or a beautifully wrapped gift box.

Maybe it just comes down to art.

To me, there's a sense of wonder and joy that playing the best games brings. It's like reading a book where you get to control the story. Or like living in your very own movie. The improvement in graphics and sound quality has only increased the experience.

Even quick pattern-matching games like Candy Crush and Farmville, casual games meant to while away a few minutes in line or between appointments, make life sparkle a little more. What would we do while waiting otherwise? Something productive, maybe, but would being productive pop just a bit of joy into our lives?

When my children were growing up, we read books at bedtime, and my children still are readers as adults. Books are an important part of our lives. But we also played video games and I think it gave them an appreciation of and familiarity with modern electronics while still exercising their imaginations.

Maybe not. :) But I just bought Baldur's Gate for my tablet, and it still feels like Christmas trees and perfectly wrapped gifts.

What brings you a sense of wonder and joy?

My son recently pointed me at a site that has older games updated for current operating systems called GOG. Quest for Glory 1-5 is here.

Howl with Guest Emma Nichols--PLUS GIVEAWAY

The Howl Series
by Emma Nichols
Kindle / Ebook GIVEAWAY
Click on this link: https://promosimple.com/ps/be50 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Raising the Phoenix
Book #1
The Alpha is the leader of the pack, a revered position, one that can't be inherited, only earned. For ten years my father groomed me to take over in the event something happened to him. I guess I never expected it to happen so soon. I thought I'd have more time. I thought I'd at least graduate from college first. Instead, life threw the Phoenix Pack a curveball. My father was murdered, and my mother died with him. Suddenly, I'm responsible for my twin sisters, and everyone else. I'm forced to make some tough decisions. And if everyone in the pack has their way, one of those decisions will involve finding my mate. They should've given me an easier task, like brokering world peace or curing cancer. After all, what male would ever volunteer for this, having a mate who's also his Alpha, leaving his pack to join hers, and giving up everything he has ever known?

In the Venom and Vampires Box Set!
23 ebooks for 99 Pennies!


Cursing the Moon
Book #2

Savannah Silver has met her mate.

Her wolf has chosen, but the Alpha who can silence others with a look and command her pack with a word has been refused. While she waits for him to come to his senses, Savvy works to find her parents’ killers, rebuild the homestead and ensure Shelby’s future.

Quinn Holderman has met his match.

Being part wolf and part husky has always been a disadvantage. Becoming a rogue was his only hope for happiness. Then Quinn met Savvy. In his mind, his reasons for denying her made perfect sense. In reality, he has suffered every second they are apart.

He needed more time. She needed her mate. Together, they’re cursing the moon.

Available on Amazon!
99 Pennies!

Healing the Heart
Book #3

Sometimes love isn’t enough. Sometimes love can’t conquer all. Sometimes healing a heart takes time.

Quinn doesn’t have time. Instead, what he has is a looming deadline. The mating must take place by the full moon or not at all. He thought he had made up his mind. He thought he could live with his decision. Then Savvy disappeared.

Savvy is an all or nothing kind of girl. She needs a strong mate, a decisive mate, a loving and supportive mate. Unfortunately, Quinn refused to be that mate. Losing him was breaking her heart. Staying busy was her only coping mechanism. Ignoring her needs and focusing on the pack helped her find everything she ever needed.

Sometimes the threat of losing everything can change minds and hearts. Sometimes the promise of a better future and a determined mate can heal a heart in record time.

Available on Amazon!
99 Pennies!
