The Elfstones of Shannara

Those of us who have read "The Sword of Shannara" by Terry Brooks know what I mean when I say this about "The Elfstones of Shannara," its sequal. Flick Ohmsford hasn't changed a bit 50 years after he and his brother, Shea, returned to Shadyvale. His stoic attitude and drive for normalcy after such heroic adventures of his youth seems to be his only concern other than his grand-nephew. What is to be noticed is that the courage and strength of character displayed by the heroes is combined in Shae's grandson, Wil Ohmsford. Swept up in another dangerous mission that could change life in the four lands, Wil has to learn things about himself that frightens even him. Accompanied by an elven girl, a chosen, they find that what cannot be seen is more deadly than anything that the eyes can see. Can mankind escape from the brink of devistation? This was definitely a book I couldn't put down and a classic that can never collect dust. I recommend this book highly along with the rest of the trilogy: "The Sword of Shannara" and "The Wishsong of Shannara."

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!

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…

Kirkus MacGowan

I want to give a BIG shout out about a fellow author whose books have had me from page one. Kirkus MacGowan was nominated as a top 5 finalist in the 2012 Best Indie Books for "The Fall of Billy Hitchings." It is definitely a must read as it is and now even more so special to us all.  Check it out on Amazon
