About Vampires and other paranormal subjects

I now have six books published with Smashwords. Of these, the subject matter often has turned to Vampires and the Paranormal.

I like to think, what if, and that leads me to science fiction of all kinds.
When I was a child, I saw my first vampire movie which scared me so much I would not look at what I myself called "a scary movie" for years.

Nonetheless, curiosity about the unknown, and ancient history studies in college, lead me to relook old subjects.

There is a fascination about these subjects. There is something about them which draws curiosity, and then, well, it just continues to be a subject matter of interest to many people and in many parts of the world.

My latest book, The Dead End Survival Project, does include a family of vampires. I am still curious and want to explore this subject further.

The Challenge of the NaNoWriMo

This month I entered the NaNoWriMo feeling I was all set just to enjoy the challenge and the input from great and enthusiastic writers everywhere.
But I have had some strange things happen and that has slowed me personally up. One of the things was I was at my computer working and had an experience with my first Earthquake. My husband and I felt something rolling under our feet, or at least it felt that way, and the house shook. We didn't know what it was, but somehow sensed it was an earthquake so we tried to find out.
It really was! but we were feeling aftershocks in Arkansas of a 5. plus earthquake in Oklahoma. We also have seen tornado weather, sirens running at different times, and things like that. Needless to say, sometimes these things can even pry a NaNo participant from the word count that day.
Anyway, I am back on line today, hopefully working towards meeting a 50,000 word goal.
My novel in progress is available at the Smashwords site as part of their NaNoWriMo participation and also on the regular Nano site. Links are here:

Dealing with Outer Space issues


I decided this year at the last minute to once again join the international writing event, the NaNoWriMo. As part of this a person must write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. I imagine it was kind of like going around the world in 30 days, because it is a frantic drive to complete a novel from beginning to end. I was able to do this twice in the past years, and thought it would be a good idea to do this again. This year, I joined with the Smashword Publishing to let readers see how this work in progress is going, so I am posting a copy of the work as I go along. I am trying to do this once a week, so it gets rather wild trying to keep up with everything at once. For inspiration, I definitely fall back on years of being an avid fan of Space Adventure Books and Movies. So I am thinking of these beautiful memories of fantastic fantasy.
The influences for myself include: Dr. Spock!

Just Fooling around on the computer

Since my latest book is about witches, "Witches and Wolves and the Witches Exile Road", I thought I would look at images which come up on a search of this subject. Look what I found!

My Smashwords book, The Egyptian Pharaoh's perilous search for a wife, can be found in many places such as Diesel books, Barnes and Noble, and Sony ebooks. I was glad to receive a Google alert concerning the fascinating subject of the ancient rulers. I want to thank them for sharing it with me as I continue pursuing this intriguing subject
