My curent blogs are a guest post on medieval weapons from Jeri Westerson, author of the Crispin Guest series, at www.bluebellstrilogy.com/blog and a post on my book being made available at bookshare (a service to provide books to the vision-impaired) at http://bluebellstrilogy.blogspot.com

(Actually, the two blogs have very different looks, but the same content, I'm just lagging way behind in transferring posts to the blogspot blog.)

I redecorated my blog Wysardessence today, and posted the third and last installment about my recent three weeks in Taiwan, Visions Of The Mystic East, featuring lots of my photography.

I wrote about a dream I had.   ::)   I swear it's the first (and only) time.  LOL 

Yesterday I mentioned the KB book of the Day and tomorrow I'm doing something else writerly and link loverly but today I woke up and it was all a dream.

I've been... but I didn't know we were supposed to announce them here.

In that case, only today I blogged that I decided to release six short tails--er, tales of my misguided sporting youth. Written a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, and in the tradition of one of my favorite writers, Patrick F. McManus, these stories are absolutely, positively 99 44/100th percent true. (With some reservations.) Deer, horses, fish, raccoons, camping with Mom...and mad Dutchmen with Lugers. Read a bit more about it here: http://tmroy.teryvisions.com/?p=216

Now, it's HERE

Ooh, can I get in on this? 

Yesterday I posted my latest Monday Microfiction installment.  So far, all stories have been written by me, but I'm always looking for contributors!

Today on Bibliophilic Blather: What's the difference between "affect" and "effect?" Also, is "irregardless" a word?

Great find, Ryne.

You would think it would be the opposite of what King says; as people's attention spans decrease, the short story should be the perfect length. Too bad it is not.

Thanks,
Karen

I posted more sales numbers since I lowered my price to 99 cents.  Things seem to be slowing down a little lately, but I'm still very happy with the numbers.
