“Day’s End” Is Live   1 comment

Darkness Falls. 

They fought the USDA, but winning the battle didn’t assure their survival. The fundamental transformation of America is still underway and the next blow may be worse than the first. When the power grid goes down and stays down, people begin fleeing the cities in search of food and heat, forcing Emmaus, Kansas to re-evaluate what is important to them and what they owe strangers on the road going by the town. 

While some distant community members undertake perilous journeys home through a human landscape that is rapidly becoming unrecognizable, others face life-altering decisions right where they are.

Darkness is falling and a new day will dawn, seared in blood and fire.

The first three books of the series are free today in honor of their new little sister.

Open Book Blog Hop – 19th November   1 comment

Stevie Turner

This week’s topic is a good one:

If you had the option to know the date of your death, would you want to know?

Well, I can see advantages and disadvantages to this one.  On one hand it would be good to know when I’m going to pop my clogs so that I could hand over all my book sites and the running of them to Sam  (if he hasn’t lost his marbles by then),  and close down all my social media sites and say one last goodbye.  I’d be able to transfer my bank account over to Sam, and say goodbye to family and also friends at work.  I could jettison the majority of my wardrobes’ contents, to give Sam one less onerous task to do.  I could then live it up if I’m able to, and do all those things I’d wanted to do when I didn’t have…

I heard recently that about 40% of Americans have never traveled outside of the United States and about 11% have never left the state they were born in. Wow! When you live in Alaska, which has no land connection to the contiguous 48-states, travel is sort of required to live.

The OP for this blog hop, however, says a recent travel experience. I flew down to Seattle a couple of months ago, but Seattle is just a gateway city for Alaska where my mother’s family happens to live. Kind of boring – Pike’s Market is only super exciting if you live in the vegetable-deprived northland, although I really do want to explore the Puget Sound area more thoroughly when I have time and a car and…

I’d Like a President #basketofdeplorables   Leave a comment

Just to point out that I didn’t get us to where we are today. Take a pause and ask “What might have happened, if only we had voted differently?”

aurorawatcherak

Image result for gary johnsonI would like a president who wants to represent the entire country and not put people in separate baskets with some designated as untouchable.

Either Hillary or Trump is going to give me that, so I am voting for Gary Johnson. Who cares if he doesn’t know (on a moment’s notice) where Allepo is? At least he’s not insulting pluralities of the nation’s voters in an effort to get bigots to like him more.

Image result for gary johnson quotesImagine if we had a president who asked all the parties to sit down and discuss things like grownups while allowing individuals to retain their rights to be themselves and not be dominated by others. What could we accomplish?

Just thought I would introduce some sanity into this stupid food fight.

Weary of Politics?   Leave a comment

 

Hullabaloo Tugawar Front CoverFor a committed democrat, it sure does suck when you lose an election.

You know what I mean?

Nearly half the country refuses to listen to the other half. We think we know what the other side means, but we never venture outside our own bubbles to actually find out. 

Libertarian Connor infiltrates both bubbles in a Midwestern town on Election Wednesday 2016 and brings readers along for a wry non-partisan tour of the “Bubble Battles.” He even offers a solution … not that any bubble dwellers will listen.

This novelette is a work of fiction based upon real-life events. Any resemblance to yourself or people you know is purely coincidental.

“In today’s crazy world of intense politics, Lela Markham brings a little bit of satirical humor to the table in Hullabaloo on Main Street. No party is safe from Markham’s humor in this quippy fun novel. It’s fun to step outside of ourselves and take a laugh at this book’s jabs. Great for anyone a little weary of today’s dire political tone looking for a bit of humor.” Joshua Grant

 

“I wrote it to make people laugh, to see that politics is not the end of the world, to help ease some of the tensions between the left and the right by showing that there is a third perspective. It’s been two years and we’re still having the same shouting match, now with physical violence. We surely need to take a pause and laugh a little at our own folly, because there’s always a winner and loser in politics and it’s interesting when the “winner” of the midterms still feels it is necessary to assault the wife of a journalist because they don’t like what he reports.”  Lela Markham

The World’s A Stage for Writers Too   Leave a comment

This week’s Open Book Blog Hop question is one I’ve  asked so many authors—”What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a writer?”

**Side note – I will send the first Open Book Blog Hop blogger who tells me the GIF reference a My Way to You  ribbon bookmark :)**

Okay, now. It is a staple question on my and many interviewers’ list because it’s very important.

Writers make writers.

Well-written creations offer examples and inspiration for those seeking to make a mark in the world with ink—hence the adage “read good writing to become a good writer. There is also so much to learn from talented writers’ blood, sweat, tears (real ones-’cause writing is no joke) and experiences.

Like most writers and someone who’s been at various layers of the writing process (teacher, writer, editor, author, mentor, etc.), I have a lot of advice, but…
