Shannan Drake

Recently I was given a novel by Shannan Drake (aka Heather Graham) named "When Darkness Falls."  My daughter gave me the book and I knew she had a passion for romances and, being a romance author herself, loves it when it has a twist. I normally do not read romances but I do love suspense romances and this definitely qualifies. I was so hoping when I started to read that this wasn't going to be another "fluffy" vampire. Don't get me wrong, it has its place for sure. I just was in the mood for some danger. Well, I got it. "When Darkness Falls" is the second novel in the Vampire Series. The heroin of the story is an architectural anthropologist named Jade MacGregor. Our hero, a vamp named Lucian DeVeau who demands (yes, I said it) that he protect her from unseen evils that she doesn't even believe in. The details that Ms. Drake has put in her adventures is outstanding. New Orleans, Scotland, battles and slaughters, all are in vivid details that could bring back old smells and sights whether or not the reader had experienced these places personally.  A story of love transcending time and natural laws, I definitely recommend the Vampire series to anyone who wants to step out of their world (and in the arms of a sexy vampire).

How to Breed Creativity

Is there something that you do during the day that just makes your mind burst with ideas? Is it driving in the car or folding laundry? I get mine at crazy times. I am in the process of organizing my cabinets. I am a week behind on the 52 Weeks to an Organized Home Challenge. Last week was organizing cabinets and drawers. I did drawers first day but it kinda dwindled from there. So, this week was supposed to be sorting out food storage and pantry but today I am finishing up the cabinets from last week. Enjoying it, actually. While I was emptying everything under the sun out of what was supposed to have been only a pan cabinet but held everything from a spice rack I forgot I had to two rolls of aluminum foil that I thought I was out of, my mind went to that pantry and how it isn't working for me. I suddenly got inspired to move my pantry and rebuild. Then I thought of my next book and a new way to outline that would take me to the top. I was on a roll. In the mean time, I had totall…

Homemade Mixes from the Hearth

It's time to get back to basics. We live in a fast paced world of instant everything. Even our browsers are full of shortcuts and instant access. I can't say much since I have all of these and more. This is true in my office, my truck and my home. The one place that I knew I had to take pause and start from scratch is the kitchen. No, I won't turn this into a homemaking page. Don't worry. It is still books, books and more books. I did, however, combine the two worlds in a cookbook that I compiled using the recipes I tweaked and twisted until it was perfect. In other words, back to basics.
Allow me the moment of a free plug of my other blog, The Pink Executive. I share my haphazard wisdom of the home while I write, promote and learn from other authors and readers, alike. I hope you take the time to check it out along with my new recipe book, Homemade Mixes from the Hearth. I hope you enjoy using the recipes as much as I do and please leave a comment below.

Unlimited Amazon?!

Unlimited reading? Unlimited listening? SOLD! I always tend to run out of things to read and have to hit my Amazon Kindle store to buy more e-books. I also have the same problem with audio books which I just can't get enough of. I saw something about Kindle Unlimited and had to check it out. With this program, and for a nominal monthly fee, I can read and listen to my little heart's content!
It's $9.99 a month and you can cancel at any time (always a plus for me).  I realize that it isn't something new to the Amazon community but somehow I just overlooked it. Check it out and let me know what you think of it. Leave a comment below and we will chat!
