Writers' Cafe / Any problems with Babelcube these days?
« on: October 21, 2017, 07:45:16 PM »
It wasn't too long ago that authors were complaining about not being paid by Babelcube so I put translations to the bottom of my to-do list. Any change with that? Better or worse?

Raven's Witch - a novella

Rowena comes from a long line of witches reaching back some two hundred years. So, she wants to know, why is it that her lotions separate, her potions harden and she cant even cast a simple little love spell? Enter Allan, a raven that Rowena is sure is destined to be her familiar. But when the raven turns into an all too human man, Rowena knows she has failed once again.

Man or familiar, Allan soon realizes it is up to him to rescue Rowena from the two hundred year old legend that keeps her spellbound.

At the end, who do you think is saying it's time for the Jedi to end? GS says it's Luke. I think is Kylo Ren.

Not Quite Kindle / DWTS Season 24
« on: March 16, 2017, 07:52:58 PM »
Sorry I'm so late with this but I just found out tonight that Season 24 will begin this Monday, 3/20.

Here's a link to the stars and pros.

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/dancing-stars-2017-season-24-celebrity-cast-partners/story?id=45767534

Heather Morris is a professional dancer and we should see some good routines. Nancy Kerrigan as a pro skater should also do well. Two gymnasts, and they always do well. Then there's Charo. She should be fun.

Kym Johnson is now married to Robert Herjavec. Their romance was pretty obvious.

I'm looking forward to Monday!!

Kindle Accessories / Easel Back Case for Fire HD 8 2016
« on: January 05, 2017, 10:02:47 AM »
Amazon replaced the first HD 8 that wouldn't charge. My new one keeps randomly shutting down. I finally discovered the problem is the Fintie easel back case and the problem stopped when I removed the case.

I was looking for an Amazon case but couldn't find one. I'm reluctant now to buy something not made by Amazon unless I get a good recommendation from somebody here. Anyone have any luck with a case for this Fire?

Anything Else Amazon / Amazon Pop-Up Store
« on: November 05, 2016, 02:01:45 PM »
I was watching Project Runway and they did a show in a pop-up store. I'm really behind in this sort of thing so I had to look it up.

Surprise, surprise. Amazon has pop-up stores for their Fire products.

Not Quite Kindle / Anybody else in the "eye" of Hurricane Matthew?
« on: October 05, 2016, 05:22:35 PM »
I live on the Treasure Coast and as of now, it looks like Hurricane Matthew is going to make landfall within 50 miles of me. In other words, I'm right in the middle of the possible landfall. We're as prepared as we can be. Plenty of food and water, although we still need to put up our shutters and Mom's shutters. One of my neighbor's is going to help with Mom's house. GS and I can easily do our house.

Good luck to everyone.

I caught up last night and I guess there's another episode available tonight on Hulu.

There are some really good designers on this season and I think it's going to be very interesting.

I just finished reading it. Good story but being written in play form was a bit difficult to follow at times.

The sheer number of scene changes makes me wonder how they performed this on stage. I hope they publish the DVD soon.

BTW, if you haven't been to Pottermore lately, JKR's been writing about the American School of Witchcraft and Wizardry (Ivormorney) since January. All new houses to be sorted into.

Writers' Cafe / Audiobook Series - Different narrators?
« on: May 25, 2016, 07:25:01 PM »
Let me explain.

I have a three books series which is going to be my next audio project. The first two books are about the same woman in different phases of her life. She's a strong but quiet widow who works for her church and raises her daughter on her own. The third book is about Lena's daughter who has an entirely different personality. To give you an idea, the title of the third is The Bold Heart. Jackie is more of a damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead kind of gal.

I know when I listened to The Good Earth trilogy, Anthony Heald evoked the exact feelings I had when reading the first book. The second and third books were about the next generations and they used a different narrator. I understood why because the successive generations were entirely different from Wang Lung, but it did throw me at first. That's why I'm concerned about using a different narrator for the third book.

It's possible that I can find a narrator who can do both personalities, but I think it's a long shot.

So, what do you think about changing narrators for the last book?

The Book Corner / The Soul Identity series
« on: March 21, 2016, 09:05:03 AM »
Many, many moons ago, Dennis Batchelder was a member of this board. I remember his first book, Soul Identity, sold for $0.01. Unbelievable, right?

Anyway, I loved Soul Identity and it's sequel, Soul Intent.

     

Finally, the next book in the series is available for pre-order.



The first book is free and you should read it first.

Writers' Cafe / I just don't understand it!
« on: January 03, 2016, 06:34:23 PM »
How somebody can pick up a book, read just ONE PAGE and stop reading. I can see after two or three pages, but one?

I thought for a while these might be KOLL reads, but there's no way of knowing. If my books are just one-and-done, then I think I'm done.

Not Quite Kindle / Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
« on: December 19, 2015, 04:29:50 PM »
I went to see the new Star Wars movie this afternoon (wonderful, fabulous, epic) and there was an unexpected trailer. A new movie from JK Rowling's "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them."

"The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York's secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school."

I don't think I can hold my breath until November 18, 2016, but that's when it comes out.

The Book Bazaar / New covers and super sale
« on: December 07, 2015, 08:24:18 PM »
In celebration of the new covers for the Regan OReilly series (designed by Kerry Hynds of Hynds Studio), I have reduced the price of the complete series from $7.99 to $2.99 for five days. Get the story of this cool brunette detective 40s style while the price is hot.



May, 1942 - Regan O'Reilly comes from a long line of police officers. She would have followed her father and brother into the Force but women officers are rare and usually relegated to the status of social workers.

Now she's a private investigator with her own agency and the freedom to live her life the way she wants. That is until she meets widower Mark Harris and his delightful son, Patrick, who have plans of their own for Regan.

From an undercover assignment investigating a Black Market ring to working with French Freedom Fighters in Nazi occupied France, Regans thoughts are never very far away from the man and boy who are determined to win her heart. When Regan's final mission takes an unexpected turn, her only desire is to return to the man she left behind and her only fear is that she might not make it out of France alive.

Also available through Kindle Unlimited.
