First novel now available

Greetings, fellow writers and readers.

I am happy to announce that my debut novel CRY DOWN DARK is now available from Blysster Press.

Peter Toombs never stopped loving Diana Ward. Not after they broke up; not after she married someone else; not after she died. Peter never got over how he failed Diana when she needed him most when they were in college. Even as he became a successful TV writer, his failure haunted him more than the monsters he created to…

A happy day ~



Today I had planned a day of going to a horse event with my kids. Instead we set out to go look at possible horse for Lilly to replace our beloved Zip. Before we got there we decided that this was not the horse for her and we visited my new place of work instead; then went to McDonalds for lunch. It was a fun but not so successful day. On the way home we stopped at Hobby Lobby to buy beads for Elizabeth to make necklaces with. I really enjoyed this day with my kids.

When I got home…

Connections, commitments, and writing ~ My second meeting.

Today I went to my second ever writing meeting at Auntie’s Book Store.  I felt like I have always belonged to this group simply because of the connections and friendships I have made this last month.  Tonight was amazing; there were so many new people with new ideas, projects, and connections to share.  I truly enjoyed every minute of this meeting and look forward to many more.

I read the introduction to my new novel and was surprised at the reaction.  The comments and critiques were…

OK I am seeking all opinions ~

In writing historical fiction is it ok to go with a myth of a story even if it doesn't match up with the historical facts? I am stuck in my research and just want to start the story.   The problem is that this story I have heard does not line up with the facts I have heard.

I know that my several great grand mother was full blood cherokee.  The story is that she was adopted off of the trail of tears.  Problem: Dorcus Tabitha "Morning Star"…

My first meeting

Well I went to my first INWG meeting here in Spokane.  It was not all I thought it would be.  They were trying something different but it was not my speed.  I have never been fond of impromptu writing.  Sometimes, however, impromptu writing can be inspirational.  I have created some of my most powerful pieces from a prompt, but I am not so good with time limits.  I would suggest one writing prompt per meeting with the whole meeting to work on the piece then share, but that would surely take…

Becoming a Freelance writer

I have recently renewed an interest in doing freelance writing work.  I have scoured the internet over the years looking for way to do this and have discovered several sights that connect writers with potential jobs.  With my skills as a writer, illustrator, photographer, and creator of spectacular ads and flyers; I should have no problem finding assignments to sustain me.  The only problem I have found is that there are so many sites that promise to connect writers with jobs but they are…

Lilly’s Angel

When Lilly was four years old she learned to ride a horse.  She loved every minute that she was able to sit high in the saddle and feel the wind in her hair.  She loved the smell of a horse and spent every minute she could in the barnyard with the horses.

When she was six she got her first Pony.  He was a small little pony that was just her…

Getting serious about my writing.

Looking back at the last year I realize that I have accomplished a lot.  However, it seems that my year was full of road blocks and dead ends.  My job kept me so busy and exhausted that I didn't have time to think, let alone focus on my writing.  In December I switched jobs which has had an amazing effect on my writing and I am steadily moving forward.  I have more time to think, create, and plan.  I just hope that this move was wise.  I have been planning to attend the INWG meeting at…

This is a Test

Just a test to see if anyone is listening... I will ask at our meeting if anyone saw this message. The test will be if you know the secret word (happy!) and, if so, I will give you a free ARC from a small supply we have of upcoming books.

Tired and Worried

Is it just me, or is there a lot of tired going around? Just trying to figure out if it's the heat or something else. I mention being tired to anyone and they seem to feel they are too, so what gives?

Any ideas?

A funny / serious quick poem

Princess for a Day

By:

J.D. Allenruiz

 

 

 

 

The little teapot whistles as the water begins to boil.

She’s hunched over the sink enmeshed in her toils.

 

The hot sweat rolls on down her face,

And she wishes she was quit of this place.

 

She dreams of being a pretty princess to be,

A stunning beauty in a flowing white gown for the world to see.

 

A knight in shining armor comes…
