The reason I’m asking -I’m on vacation in Lagos, Algarve. The place is a dream – golden beaches, a glittery teal sea, tangerine cliffs, white houses covered in the famous indigo tiles – and then there was a Portuguese water dog walking in the street. All black, all curly, and cute white paws. A whiff of barbequed sardines in my nose, I was thinking “What if?” What do you think? Let me know, if this sort of thing is worth writing about. Photo by Tim…Continue Reading “Would you read a paranormal romance featuring a Selkie and a Were-Portuguese Water Dog??”

You know you’re in trouble when your grandmother is a tree. Summers in the Fields of Bliss is a charming story filled with an amazing cast of (paranormal) types, none of which fits the mold. Vampire – check. But not your average blood-thirsty nightwalker. Fairies- check. But not your average cute fluttery beauties. Trolls, witches, and gods galore (the latter is a royal pain in the patootie). The author basically took her hometown, inserted her love for the place in the story, and then proceeded…Continue Reading “Book Review – Summers in the Fields of Bliss by Elisabeth Comiskey”

Foremost, it’s important to take every piece of information with a pinch of salt. Facts can be interpreted in different ways. That is legitimate. Facts can be faked. That’s not legitimate, but unfortunately very common. The key approach to steering clear of info traps is 1 – Never rely on one source for your…Continue Reading “How fake to do you take your news?”

Book 2 in the Kea Wright Mysteries, this one works quite well as a standalone. I’m the living proof; I never read the first. It’s called “Cold Flood” and features a volcano erupting under an ice cap together a sneaky killer causing accidents on icy mountain slopes. As Mysteries go, that’s certainly an original idea, and I get the impression the author’s USP is knowledge about intriguing biological, geographical, and other scientific wonders he aptly presents to the readers. For me, that works. Minor gripe…Continue Reading “Fiction Review – The Meerkat Murders by R.J. Corgan”

Compiling on Scrivener for me has always been a bit of a nightmare. The new Version 3 promised a much improved experience, so I upgraded. What can I say? The nightmare got worse? Hey, that describes the experience more or less accurately. The help function didn’t help much since it kept telling me how easy everything now was. Duh. For IT savvy peeps, perhaps. But all I want to do is WRITE, EDIT and PUBLISH. I already have to maintain a website, conduct marketing campaigns…Continue Reading “How to compile with Scrivener 3”
