Flower Child Blog Tour

With thanks to all those wonderful friends who've offered their support, their help, their advice, and even their blogs as Flower Child begins my first ever blog-tour... Here's a list of all the places I'll be visiting. I've put a nice sparkly banner at the top of the page too, so readers can get back to this list anytime with just one click.

I'll update, fix errors, and add addresses as things change, but, so far, I think it's okay. And again, thank you all! These are all great blogs to visit anyday--why not check them out now? I'll post links and reminders all through October so you can visit them again and meet me there.

More book reviews as the evenings start to lengthen

Will I read more books as the evenings grow long? I'm not sure. Football (soccer) season's started, so the guys are watching their matches in the evening--that certainly gives me time to read. But October's the month of my blog tour (see yesterday's post) so maybe I'll spend all my spare time visiting friends around the internet. Watch this space for a list of all the generous bloggers who've been kind enough to host me!

Meanwhile, grab a coffee (brew type to be determined, and remember the stars aren't ratings). Then read on to find out what I've been reading...

Literary fictionMichael Stein's The Rape of the Muse is a beautiful literary novel that reads like a painting or a sculpture--more allegory, more image, more surprises waiting with every turn of the eye. Read and enjoy with a 4-star rich and elegant cup of coffee.

Non-fiction: Heather Lende's books of essays, If you lived here, I'd know your name, was a gift from my husband, bought…

Quoth the raven...

It's nearly October, cold winds blow, and there's mud on the ground. Makes me think of ancient Britain and the Romans, so don't forget to look at yesterday's post, meet author Minnette Meador, and read about the history of London.

Elsewhere the season's turning to scary horror stories. "Who's your favorite horror writer?" says the poll on Goodreads. ("Quoth the raven" comes to mind, obviously, but I suspect Stephen King wins the title for me.)

Meanwhile, I'm still working on my futuristic novel Elijah's Children after time off in Alaska. Erin O'Riordan has given me a perfect image to keep in mind as Elijah, Lynnie and Boy meet up with those ravens. Go to to find out more (and see the picture!).

Drum roll... 
Flower Child has been released! My third Gypsy Shadow book, and the first for which I'm going to be doing a blog tour. The drum's still rolling and I'm crawling under the d…
