Who Has a New #Book? Featuring author Tina Frisco

A great, wonderful, sensational book. And the author ain’t too bad neither.

Colleen’s Book Reviews – The 2016 BOOK AWARDS

🌼Colleen Chesebro Fairy Whisperer 🌼

WELCOME TO MY FIRST ANNUAL BOOK AWARDS PRESENTATION

I have been reviewing books for a couple of years now but never had the time or opportunity to do an annual awards post. 2016 has been filled with so much to be thankful for that I decided to recognize some of the books and authors whose writing made an impact on me, with the hopes that someone else will read these same books. It is a way that I can pay forward some of the enjoyment that I have received and recognize some outstanding Indy authors.

First, I must share that at the drafting of this post, I have read and reviewed a total of 63 books in 2016. That in itself is quite a feat! If you are looking for last minute Christmas Gifts, this is the place to SHOP!

Here’s how I chose the winners of my 2016 Annual…

My New Novel Is Now Available on Amazon!

TINA FRISCO

I am so pleased to announce that the Kindle version of my new novel, Vampyrie: Origin of the Vampire, is now available on Amazon. CreateSpace should have it out in paper shortly.

v-cover-csI’m also very relieved! Talk about birthing a baby . . . I did most of the work myself, from formatting to cover text — not to mention writing the 388-page book.

Don’t let the title fool you. This is not your typical vampire book. I’m incapable of writing a book without a spiritual bent. Vampyrie also has a basis in science, specifically medicine.

I’ve always been intrigued by the myth of the vampire and often have wondered if the phenomenon actually could exist. My background in medicine led me to speculate about how this might have a basis in reality. If rooted in science, how might this myth come to life? The most likely answer would be as…

A Conversation with a Friend – Anonymous

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

I was sent this piece by a fellow writer who asked if I would publish it here and do so anonymously, because, “the message is more important than selling a few books.” I’m inclined to agree.

A Conversation with a Friend

I was hanging out the other night at the Tiki Hut, minding my own business, when a voice behind me said, “Hey, man. What’s up?”

I should first explain that the Tiki Hut is an edifice at the marina where I live. The denizens of said marina congregate there on occasion to commune with one another. I, on the other hand, avoid it like the plague. It’s not that I don’t like people; it’s just that I don’t like being around people. But that particular evening, I had the place to myself.

I turned around, and standing there was this dude I had never seen before, although he did…

Even MORE impractical gifts for #writers. #SundayBlogShare #Christmas

Barb Taub

It’s been a tough year for writers. Sure, we tell lies about our imaginary friends write stories, but it really works best if our worst fears stay within their 85K word count instead of becoming presidential candidates.

Frankly, as the holidays approach this year, that special writer in your life needs more from you than pretending (again) to read their book or even buying it on Amazon. (Again.) They need you to go beyond reminding them about personal hygiene, putting on pants before they go out, or if they’ve been arguing with their characters out loud. (Again.)

Right now, your special writer needs some love. And what better time to show you care than the holiday season? Luckily, there are a lot of absolutely senseless gifts to gladden the heart of any writer. Last year I offered writerly-gift suggestions–

Practical gifts are out, of course, because if writers were practical…well, they certainly wouldn’t be writers. [see:It’s…

*I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader’s Copy of this book*


“Through no fault of his own, a young man is thrust into a new culture just at the time that culture is undergoing massive changes. It is losing its identity, its lands, and its dignity. He not only adapts, he perseveres and, over time, becomes a leader–and on occasion, the hand of vengeance against those who would destroy his adopted people.

Yellow Hair documents the injustices done to the Sioux Nation from their first treaty with the United States in 1805 through Wounded Knee in 1890. Every death, murder, battle, and outrage…

Ani’s advent

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

dog-009

Dear Santa, as the season’s here

And just to keep in touch

I thought I’d write you every day…

I’m after nothing…much.

dog-004

I’ve been a good girl all the year,

Or if not, I forget,

Or maybe she just didn’t see…

Or hasn’t caught me yet.

dog-011

I’ve tried to help with household chores,

I’ve laundered all my balls,

I’ve chased the pigeons from the shed

And spiders from the walls.

dog-013

I’ve done the food disposal job;

The stuff she left, I ate…

(Although she’d left it in the fridge

And not upon my plate.)

birddoggled

I’ve learned I shouldn’t bark at cows

Unless they come too near…

(Though any cat that trespasses

Will flee in mortal fear.)

dog-006

And yes, I know, that cupboard thing,

I wasn’t going in

To help myself to treats and stuff

‘Cause that would be a sin…

dog-001

So Santa, if you wouldn’t mind,

The baubles on the…
