I'm not seeing a thread for posting links to blogs, so starting one. Mods, if there's already a thread, please merge. Thanks.


I entered a writing contest to encourage others and here's my entry: https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2018/09/you-are-enough.html

I just posted some photos of fall foliage.

Goodness gracious, those are gorgeous photos! You certainly have an eye for photography. Autumn is so beautiful. As a lover of locomotives as well, I appreciated the picture of the train.  Grin

I posted on my blog today releasing two new things for readers: official artwork from my fantasy series, and the excerpt for the upcoming sixth and final book of the series. It was a pretty substantial update. I always love releasing art because it makes the site so beautiful and colorful (and it's just exciting seeing my characters come to life!).

Fantasy/dystopian/sci-fi. Writer of bloody warfare & witty banter. Provoker of questions.

Glad you liked my photos, Rosie. The weather and foliage was really gorgeous this weekend.

The train was a regular regional commuter train, though the different types of waggons and locomotives are interesting. There is a vintage steam train operating in my area, which is very cool, when you catch it.

Congratulations Cora! It's neat how these came from writing prompts. I think I am unable to write any story without some food in it. lol.

Mark, a lot of people don't interact but they still read so if you enjoy it, why not? Sometimes I feel if I don't blog my head might explode so I do. Still enjoying it after 10 yrs.

I toss up a blog post every few days, but most of them aren't things I think anyone here would be particularly interested in.

My last post was just an embedded video from the YouTube channel "The Great War."  Never forget the horror show that was WWI.   :icon_cry:

My just released perpetual calendar (paperback) that was a loooong time coming.
Partly due to not fully trusting the new KDP print, sorry KDP, it was a lot easier & quicker than I thought it would be.
Partly due to it being 400 pages & 365 of those pages having an original (by me) quatrain.
(A mammoth task that took longer than I thought it would but I still reached by self-imposed deadline for completion).

Was the book I am Legend better than the movie. I just wasn't impressed with the movie at all. I liked World War Z so much better.

Congratulations on "winning" Nanowrimo, dgcasey. I like the spreadsheet you use. I use to use Scrivener to keep on top of my daily wordcount but it's installed on my laptop where I rarely do my writing (it's usually on my phone or tablet).

Apart from blogging about the Cheap Quickies promo, I've also just put up Chapter 2 of my sweary scottish vampire story in a blog post.

Was the book I am Legend better than the movie. I just wasn't impressed with the movie at all. I liked World War Z so much better.

Apologies - only now noticed this. In my opinion, the book was (as usual) a great deal better than both movie versions I've seen. Like I say in the blog post, the ending of the book is deliciously dark and I wish the film makers had been faithful to the book.

As for World War Z, I don't think they made a terrible attempt with the movie but, again, the book for me is far superior. As an aside, one of the more interesting parts of the movie is when the plane is coming in to try to land at Cardiff Airport. That's about twenty minutes up the road from my house and it's not often I see it mentioned in a major movie. In fact, I can't think of another one.

Sam, I know the feeling. I was a latecomer to SM and still find it unwieldy. I do enjoy blogging though, and mostly it's become a great resource for me. You have no idea how many photographs are only saved because they're on my blog...many were lost with hard-disk crashes, etc.

Wishing you a happy and healthier 2019, DM Guay.

I forgot about this thread, but I have been blogging.  You can find some Christmas (one pic may not be quite safe for work) and New Year's Eve photos and I also waded into the hopepunk debate.

I also have a review of Ordeal in Otherwhere by Andre Norton and the recipe for spaceman's punch, a vintage 1960s party drink, at Galactic Journey, a retro science fiction blog I sometimes contribute to.

Finally, I also have a poem called "The Mystery of the Compost Heap" out in the poetry and photography zine Umbel & Panicle today.

Just got another author interview up on my blog. I like to focus on Indie authors, but I also interview small and mid press authors too. I'm doing the occational book review too, but the author interviews seem to be more popular.
Love giving back to the Indie community and it gets content on my blog too.

If you'd like to take a look at what I've done, here is a link to my children's author blog:

Couldn't stand Insomnia - I thought as I read it that my favourite author had taken one drug too many. The Green Mile upset me so much I stopped reading Stephen King books for a long time.

I used to preorder everything he wrote, but couldn't get into some of his later ones. I think that's me, though; my tastes changing, crumbling probably along with my bones.

It's good that our tastes differ so much - what a boring world it would be otherwise. And our tastes definitely change as we grow older. I used to get excited around November each year when he was due to release a new novel, but haven't felt that way for years.

As for Jupiter Ascending, it was/is a very divisive movie. I blogged about it and the very disparate reactions to the film back when it came out.

Another interesting read. I don't think my reaction to the film was down to being male - my younger daughter watched it with me and didn't like it, either. We both thought it was a mish-mash that didn't work for us.

Oh, there were certainly a lot of women who didn't like Jupiter Ascending as well as a few men who did.

Meanwhile, I continue my episode by episode reviews of Star Trek Discovery with episode 2, "New Eden".

I enjoyed Jupiter Ascending for the audacity of the scope and ideas. Where they lost me was in the third act with all the busy-work saving her family. It could have been just one favorite at risk. Then the owner of the galaxy goes back to cleaning toilets? Not happening, suspension of disbelief broken.

Yup, going back to toilet cleaning was a bit strange. Not that there's anything wrong about being a cleaner, but it's usually not a job anybody does for the love of it.

You know, this was such cool research, I have to share. I participated in a paranormal investigation at the Queen Mary last weekend with Nick Groff from Paranormal Lockdown. I just wrote up a blog post about the experience. Best research I've done for a novel so far. It was for my supernatural romance which involves a TV show paranormal investigator and a skeptic tour guide at the place he is investigating. So, got some first hand experience investigating and even witnessed a seance in the most haunted room on the ship: B340.

Here is the link to the blog post:

Like I said, some of the best research ever. Had way too much fun. -Tiff/Marilyn Vix

I upload a pic to imgur first.  Then I use the link they give me for BBS/forums.  But I think a photo has to be hosted somewhere off-site before you can post it here using the img tags.  I think.   :icon_think:

You don't have to make an account at Imgur.  I don't have an account there.  I just click the "new post" button and upload a pic.  Then I hover the cursor over the upper-right corner of the pic to get the link list to show up.  Then I copy the BBS/forum link and use it here.

Once you do it a few times, you get in the habit, and then it goes pretty fast.

I'm taking my books out of Kindle Unlimited, which was actually my last blog post.  This one has the last "free day" for my sweet Scottish romance.  Once I'm out of KU, free days will be more difficult to schedule...but I can have longer excerpts on BookFunnel and my website.  Here's the link!

That's kind of funny about the singer being nervous because "the lyricist" was there.  I can imagine how Mike must have felt when he heard her say that.

Reading your excerpt makes me want to write something in first-person again.  Good luck with the book.   :cheers
