And what a week it has been.

Last Wednesday my husband went in for a total hip replacement. While he’s been recovering nicely, things have been a bit on the chaotic side around here. Our daughter, who is a nurse, came up to give me a hand with all the medications and exercises, not to mention keeping the house managed.

So I’ve been absent for a little bit.

What’s been happening in your world?

If you need a break, I have three different “vacations spots” for you to choose from. The fares are pretty cheap and you don’t even have to leave home to visit.

Vacation spot #1: Esperance.

This spot has the advantage of being a slower paced world with a lot to offer in the way of natural beauty. The people are friendly and you might catch a glimpse of some paranormal Talents among the locals. And watch the romances develop!

Vacation spot #2: Gambler’s Folly

If you like life in the fast lane, this world might be for for you. Whatever you like to do, you can find it here, from casinos and night clubs to scenic mountains; from white or black sandy beaches to skiing resorts. Just be warned. The law enforcement there is tough on contraband and they have a whole department of shifters to help sniff it out. There may be some who are finding mates, so watch for the sparks!

Vacation spot #3: The Cote d’Or

For this spot we’ll travel across dimensions to a Pacific Northwest quite a bit different than the one you’re used to. Go back to a time where horses and carriages were the main means of transportation in a world where magic is just a part of every day life. And one of the wealthiest men in town is trying to sort out his love life. A weather-shaper and Master of the Fleet, Richard can command wind and water, but can he win his lady’s heart?

Don’t have time for a full length novel? Check out some of my shorter works at Vocal.Media!

There are several different types of stories there from The Walk and The Box to Moonlight and Shadows.

No, not like that… I mean as in Vocal.Media, the online place for those of a creative bent to share their work.

I’ve had a few things up on Vocal.Media for a little while now. Sometimes I write about events in the news, or things on my mind. Sometimes I create short stories to share with others.

Either way, it gives people a chance to check out my work without buying one of my longer novels, and for free at that!

Looking for a short fiction work?

How about The Reward, Warrior Priestess, or The Walk?

Maybe something more down to earth…

There’s Diabetic and Confused, What’s Different, and The Digital Age.

Go over, check it out, and if you like it, leave a tip.

Want an excerpt? Here’s something from The Digital Age.

I know many of you have grown up in this digital age, where everything is available online, on your phone, or on your tablet. And I will admit, it can be extremely convenient when doing research, especially thinking back to all the hours I spent in the library before this digital age. College papers would have been so much easier if I could have researched them online.

The thing is, though, that we are now dependent on all things digital. At the moment, I’m having a real problem.

Talk to you later, everyone.

about Vocal.Media?

It is an online platform where people can publish their work and get paid a little bit for every view. Or people can tip the author of the article if they are so inclined.

Maybe you’re in the mood to read something short. You might find what you’re looking for at Vocal. There are several categories to choose from, so nearly anyone can find something of interest there.

I discovered them a while back and have several articles available to read. Some of them are musings on this world of ours and how it differs from the world when I grew up. Others are fictional.

Interested?

Check out my page on Vocal and see if there’s something for you. Here’s the link to my oatest article., Of Wall Street, Reddit, and Total Chaos.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Sometimes I have an idea I like, but it isn’t enough for a novel. Just a brief thought sparked by a conversation, an interesting face, or some musings of my own.

So what to do with them?

Vocal.Media!

I have several article length stories on Vocal from my inner conversations. The first one is about the Digital Age and how dependent we’ve become on our electronics.

The second one discusses how different things are now from when I was growing up on a farm in Ohio. One of our grandsons asked me what had changed since I was his age, which set me to thinking.

The most recent article is called The Box. It came in the form of a dream, touching on the subject of that hidden place in our minds. That place we keep secret from the rest of the world.

What if it were are a real place? What would it look like if you could visit it. And how would you react to what is inside?

The Box, a story about sunlight and shadows, darkness and light.

For the others:

The Digital Age

What’s Different?

You may have to sign up with Vocal to read them, but there are thousands of interesting articles and stories on many topics there.

So go on over and take a peek–not only at my work, but browse around and see what else you can find.

Have a great week!

Now that my short stories are beginning to move, I will be adding my first novel to my Kindle         selections available on Amazon.  Jareth: First Lord is a romantic fantasy set on the world of Esperance.  Our hero, Jareth is First Lord of his clan. A descendant of the original Seekers, his psychic Talent overflows in all directions.  Alone again over two years since the death of his wife and First Lady, Jareth finds a new woman to court while in negotiations with a neighboring clan. Taking her back with him as part of the spoils, he now has the task of convincing her to be his wife. But this will be more difficult than he imagined, considering she is a daughter of the First Lord of her clan and as strong-willed as he is.

Jareth: First Lord will be available by September 15th, on Amazon’s Kindle.  See my author page for current selections.
