New Friends and Good Reads

I've picked up a few new followers over the last week.  One of them, Milo James Fowler, asks an interesting question on his blog.  Do you call yourself a writer or an author? Go see what Milo has to say about this and perhaps leave a comment for him on your opinion.

I wanted to remind people to visit my short story posted on Goodreads.  I'm still working on a second short story about two other characters in my book.  Tamarin is an important sorceress introduced in The Keepers of Sulbreth.  In the second book in The Futhark Chronicles, Beyond the Gate, she acts with wisdom and courage as a leader.  In the the yet to be released third book, Beneath the Mountain, Tamarin will show the courage of a true heroine.  The short story found on Goodreads will delve into her background and the events that molded her into the strong woman we meet in The Futhark Chronicles.

I'd like to thank L. Diane Wolfe for the Stylish Blogger Award.  It means a lot coming from her over at Spunk on a Stick.   I need to pass this on to a few stylish friends.  The choices are tough but I hope you'll visit these fine bloggers:

If you're not on Goodreads, I hope you'll join.  The great reasons to be there are too many for this post.  If you have time, follow a few of the links and perhaps find a new cool blog to follow.


  1. Congratulations and I saw Milo's post yesterday.

  2. Congrats on your award. Milo poses an interesting questions.

  3. Congratulations on your award.

    I am on GoodReads, but don't go often except to post book reviews.

  4. Great idea, posting a prequel freebie story. I'm off to check it out... I still need to pick up a copy of Beyond the Gate too. Hoping to catch you at a signing.

  5. congrats on your award. Milo's question is a good one :)

  6. I call myself an author if only because I took the extra step to have my MS edited and then self published it. And I belong to Goodreads too. Haven't been there in a few weeks but I enjoy the groups and the conversations.

  7. I love your site and as I browsed your blog I decided to award you the Beautiful Mommy Writer Award.

    Go to and pick up your award.
