A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

I've written yet another ode to someone lost, an in-law who elevated the family when he joined it and who always made sure I know I had family and a home where ever he was... Yet one more thing hurricane Maria took from us.

Well, it's been a while since I've posted here, but I'm still doing a thrice-weekly blog article.  It's also been a while since I've done a gun article on the blog, so this week there will be two. Today's is: Interesting Collectables: "Old" 1st issue Ruger Bearcats

With photos, of course (samples):

I recently posted my curiosities about the state of publishing in the next five years. I have no answers. If any of you have speculations about the state of indie publishing in five years, please feel free to comment: http://tscook.blogspot.com/2017/11/curious-case-of-indie-publishing-in.html

Recently? No. So far, I have but one blog post, and that was a while ago. https://futuretravel.today/here-be-mecha-dragons-fb8dd0d8765

But I'd like to post semi-regularly. Every time I start thinking of topics to blog about, though, I'm hit with a combination of "Meh, who'd want to read my rambling thoughts about that?" and a pinch of Impostor Syndrome. I mean, that's ridiculous. My first post, as you'll see if you click the link, was picked up by an online publication. I've been writing stories since I learned how to draw letters, and I've had some interesting experiences in life, in Hollywood and elsewhere.

I'm new to KBoards, though, so I'm not certain if I can ask questions in this forum. (If not, please ignore or delete.) But, any advice on staying motivated to blog?

Sure you can.  Ask away.   :)

Just make sure you read the forum decorum.  Politics and religion are off-limits, for example.

Yep: low standards.  Not kidding.  Set your quality/length standards for your blog posts to near-zero.  This will take the pressure off, and you'll blog more.  Over time, you can build up to more substantial posts.  Or not; it's up to you.  But I've seen a lot of people who wanted to blog more often, but they didn't because they seemed to think every blog post had to be dissertation-quality or else it wasn't worth posting.  That sort of thinking induces paralysis.  Break the paralysis first; worry about the rest later.

Hope that helps.   And welcome to the site.  :)
