Music Monday – Hold Back The River

I don’t know anything about this artists except that I like this song. I haven’t listened to his whole album, but I’m pretty sure one day soon I will.

Something about the lyrics get to me…

When was the last time you listened to a new song or artist and couldn’t get it out of your head? What are you listening to this week?

Music Monday – Blank Space

This is dark and emotional and twisted and dramatic and I love the story it tells…

I love how Taylor Swift has reinvented herself. She’s always been one to write her emotions and thoughts into her songs and I admir that about her. She might have been made fun of, teased, and maybe not taken seriously, but I like that she’s kept at it and created her own way through it all. She tries new things, new sounds, and she isn’t too big to talk to her fans, to communicate with them.

I like artists like that… Don’t do the same thing. Find themselves. Re-invent themselves. And are human.

Who are you listening to this week?

There’s a lot in this business that is open and honest and right there in your face that once upon a time readers weren’t privy to… And I count myself a reader. I always do. I always have. I was reading books long before I started writing them. (more…)

Sweet Saturday

Lone Star Sweets has new covers created by TEZ Graphics. They’re beautiful. Bright. Light. And reflect the series.

I’ve flipped out the older covers and inserted all the new ones. I’ve uploaded all new information to Amazon, All Romance eBooks, and Barnes and Noble. Amazon seems to be taking the longest to get everything going in the right direction, but eventually, they’ll all be there and looking good. (more…)

So, I talked with this author, Penny Watson, today and then, I read the blurb for her book and I laughed. And bought the book. That’s a sign, y’all. If you can make me laugh by the just the blurb, I’ll give your book a shot. There are other factors too such as originality. Curiousness. And samples. (more…)
