Hi all:

The holiday season is fast approaching and to celebrate, I want to bring you a giveaway I’m taking part in. As I’ve mentioned before in quite a few occasions (yes, I know I’m a bore), I belong to a number of author groups, and one of the authors in one of them, Elizabeth Marx , suggested organising a giveaway, where we would not only be giving a Kindle Fire away, but also sending a lucky winner our books for free (56 books in fact).

I wondered about trying to list all the books, but I thought you could have a look at some of them here

WETWEET2 PROMO1What do you have to do to take part in this wonderful giveaway and have an option to get the Kindle Fire with books by: Elizabeth Marx, Theresa Snyder, Olga Núñez Miret, Laura Taylor, Lisa Gillis, Tima Maria Lacoba, Jerrie Alexander, Sarah Jane…

Hugh's Views & News

I am delighted to welcome and introduce a very special guest this month. Sally Cronin is one of the jewels in the blogging crown that exists here on, what I like to call, Planet Blog.

Writer, Author and Blogger, Sally Cronin Writer, Author and Blogger, Sally Cronin

I was first made aware of Sally and her blog when she reblogged my post ‘Forget About The Oscars, Welcome To The Mildreds!’  By reblogging that post she introduced me to her blogging community and since then has been an incredible supporter of my blog.  She shares and promotes other bloggers’, writers’ and authors’ work and is always on hand to offer support to anyone regarding writing and publishing.

Those of you that already know Sally will have heard of her recent new book release, Tales From The Garden.

Tales From The Garden

I was hooked when she released the first of the stories on her blog and immediately asked for more…

One Lovely Blog Award…Thank you!

One Lovely Blog AwardI would like to thank Charles Ray‘s fantastic book review blog and also everyone that takes the time to read my blog.  I am very honored to be nominated for this award that I will proudly display on my site.

Now I reveal 7 things about myself you may or may not have known.

1.  I wrote my first novel in High School.  Chapters were sold for $0.25 cents each…It kept my car in gas.

2.  My favorite book is “Peck’s Bad Boy and his Pa“.

3.  When my son and daughter were born, I was in the room watching.

4.  I have the honor of being married to the same woman for forty-five years.  If I had to do it again, I would in a heartbeat.

5.  My first published novel, “The Wolf’s Moon” was written in longhand and took about a year or so to finish.

6.  I love to watch nature, watching flowers grow in one of our many gardens.  Sitting in the room where I write I watch the animals drink from the creek.

7.  Most of all, I love working with my wife each day, meeting all of the wonderful people around the world and reading their thoughts in blogging.

Oh yeah, did I mention anything about woodworking?  No?  Well, maybe next time.

Charles Ray: A Blog Award

Wow…humbled by the nomination by Charles Ray for The Lovely Blog Award. Thank you so very much!

Charles Ray's Ramblings

one-lovely-blog-award-e1447361998422I don’t normally pay a lot of attention to blog awards–too busy blogging, book reviewing, and writing–but, I have to stop and say thanks to Anatomy of Perceval for One Lovely Blog Award. I’m really not sure what I did to deserve it, but it’s always nice to learn that there are actually people out there who read what I write.

So, having that out of the way, I’ll follow the rules for this award.

7 Interesting Facts About Myself

I’ve been writing since I was about 12 or 13 – got my first short story published in a national magazine back then.

I have a short attention span, and get bored easily, so I write and read in a lot of genres.

My first full-length work of fiction took eight years to write–but, now I finish a book of 60,000 words in about a month.

I was a…

Trent’s World: If We Were Having Coffee We’d be Talking About Paris

Great post from Trent’s World about humanity…

Trent's World (the Blog)

Buildings by the Seine - 2002

Hello.  Come on in out of the strong, cold north-wind and grab a cup of strong French Roast or Tea.  Yeah, my normal greeting is a little muted today, but you know why.

Usually I let you guess where I am by the picture.  Well, I am only in Paris in my thoughts right now.  My body is in New Hampshire.

This was a week like any other.  Work.  Play.  Reading.  Writing.  Cold.  Rain.  But now that it is over, I don’t want to talk about it.  I want to talk about something else.  Oh, we can take time to chat about small things later if you want.  Perhaps I’ll do a repeat tomorrow that is a little lighter.

Yeah, we’ll talk abut what people the world over are talking about.
