The Enchanted Faerie on Amazon

Amazon lists the Kindle version of The Enchanted Faerie.

I know a few people who have Kindles (such as agent Krisin Nelson and who swear by them.

Meanwhile, for those of you who are eagerly awaiting a hard copy that is safe to drop in the tub, you only have four weeks left until the release.

Meanwhile, now that I am done with the January Faire, the Seminary play, school shopping and my YouTube Symphony Orchestra audition, I can now see my way clear to post some more Love Letters.

Ahh for a new year....

The new year brings out the deep superstitions in the average person. It's a time for renewal, new vows, new ambitions and fulfilments. To some it can be an achievement as monumental as a life change (giving up smoking?)
But with it comes a lot of hope.

For others it can start off a superstitious belief that it has brought a whole series of bad luck.

But what ever 2009 represents to you, the visitor to this place of hope and ambition, I wish you the best of this coming year.

post holidays set-backs

I'm a little late getting to this, but I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and that your New Year got off to an auspicious start.

My Christmas was lovely, but the day after I got home I came down with the worst cold...chest, throat, head...argh! And I'm now well into my second week of trying to shake it. It's meant a lot of time just lying in bed, and not nearly enough time focused on writing. But as of today, I think I'm winning the battle, so hopefully renewed writing energy is not far behind.

It was nice to see a review of EF. I hope many more will follow.

On a totally different topic, I couldn't help but drool over the dishy actor the most recent poll is about. I think we're really missing something here in Canada. Is this an Australian series?

Review of "The Enchanted Faerie"

Gina Marie Pettitt of Between the Lines has reviewed The Enchanted Faerie.

She says, "Each story on its own is well written and uses the theme very creatively... I love the use of other mythic races, and other paranormal aspects to the themes. In all this is a book that I think most would enjoy."

Aww, thanks. We're glad you enjoyed it.
