Soooo... After the tragic death of their friend, four college pals set out to hike through the Scandinavian wilderness. (Count me out) A wrong turn leads them into the mysterious forests of Norse legend, where an ancient evil exists and stalks them. (Love Norse legend, and evil is even better. Still, I'm not going unless there's wine). 
Enjoyed. Making this gem better is its on Netflix. That's PJs and wine time.

Writer Writing~


Playing on the iPod~ Traded it for a smart TV... ummm not a stupid TV (don't tell the TV in my living room, poor thing, the TV in my office is smart).  Right... what's playing~ Pandora
 
Current Read~
Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night ~ Kresley Cole

Current Fav TV, Movie~ Python

Current WIP~
Urban Fantasy ~ Bone Chimes PLUS Halloween Short ~ Broken Halos 

    Bone Chimes, in all of its urban fantasy awesomeness, is scheduled for an October 31st release. I know, I love it, Halloween. You can read more about it by clicking RIGHT HERE.
     Broken Halos~ Posted here on Halloween! Disease. Devastation. Deviants. Poor parenting. Revenge. Am I missing anything? Let's hope not.

     Such as it is... Pretty excited this post has stuff about books. Hold on to your hats- I'm going to write something about writing. Ready for it? OK, it's a question.
      Question~ "Are you a pen and paper or electronics type?"
      Answer~ BOTH. I love pen and paper. Scrawling my notes all over those blank pages, it's like 'bam' there are my thoughts. Because of my obsession, with notebooks, I have a couple of covers- thanks to Mr. K.

I also love my laptop. I have separation issues when I have to leave it. Why- Copy and paste. And delete. The backspace. And I can read my typing. Some of my handwriting- wow.
     There you have it, my friends.

   


     As Halloween closes in, there will be all things horror, creatures, books, movies, and indie greatness on this blog. Be prepared.
     If you have a idea, a book, a movie, a podcast, leave it here, or at makinkslinger@gmail.com. I'm all over social media, cause that's fun and I'm witty.

Today marks the Summer Solstice and welcomes the first day of summer.



















Oh yea, it's also National Selfie day- so strike a pose. Unless you have a unwilling companion. Lol, took the picture anyway.

Writer Writing~ and... editing.

Current WIP~
Urban Fantasy ~ October Release!!!


May rushed forward and now I'm sitting in the middle of the month. How does that happen? Where is the year going?


I hit the road, drove along the Sierra Nevada mountains, and traveled to Northern California. I logged 1400 miles, worked on edits to my urban fantasy novel  (with views of the mountains and several cups of coffee), and maxed out the memory card in my camera (that's always a great feeling). Along the way, I captured Dogwoods, rivers, sunsets, rain clouds, cabins, barns, and wrote notes. Love the odds and ends scrawled in my tattered notebook . Of course, there was sitting back and relaxing with wine, a fire, and the great company of family and friends. Almost made a side track to Tahoe- but my girl, (sassy German Shepard and traveling companion) wanted to head home. So we did.











Forced back to reality- it's time to send out chapters to my victims, umm.. beta readers, hunt for a book cover, and edit the photos.  Hello coffee. Cause editing with wine, while humorous, isn't effective. Not that I know from experience. After all that- I can't forget to clean the pine needles, leaves, and mud out of my truck. That can wait, lol!

Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.  ~ John Muir ~


Until next time.
