Not much new to report this week. I’ve been busily stumping for the sale on Frigga’s Lost Army (which ends tonight!)…
…and Watchmaker’s Heart, of course.(And if you get them and like them, please leave a review!) I did try to take some hours away from it to try and experience the eclipse. Didn’t go so well. I think I went out too late or something. But I didn’t see nothing, live. (Boo…)
So I’ve spent a lot of time glued to the computer and let’s not forget all the blogging I’ve done this month. I also woke up the other day with my bicep hurting, likely from all the typing. Gah!
Yes, I’ve been a typing/blogging madwoman this month, haven’t I? I’ve been enjoying the challenge, and will be sad to see the topics end.What in the world should I babble about then?
(I hear you! “you should get back to writing your books!” I know.) I’ve also been in the post-release brain deadness (is that a word? If not, it should be!) since finishing Frigga’s Lost Army. But Druid Warrior Prince is coming along swimmingly.
Other books I picked up this week:Kitchen Table Tarot.Synospsis:
On the reading front, I’m about 2/3 of the way through Fires of Vesuvius
. Interesting stuff! At least, I think so. Also, about the same way through Second Summer of the Sisterhood
. I watched the movie, night before last, though, and so am wondering how much from the book they actually used. Doesn’t seem like much. We’ll see.

For years, Melissa Cynova has been sitting down with friends and neighbors who are curious about the tarot. She’s heard all the questions and misconceptions that can confuse newcomers (and sometimes more experienced readers, too). Kitchen Table Tarot was written as a guide for anyone looking for no-nonsense lessons with a warm, friendly, and knowledgeable teacher.
Join Melissa as she shares straightforward guidance on decks, spreads, card meanings, and symbols. Filled with real-life examples and personal explanations of what it’s like to read the cards, this book tells it like it is and provides the information you need to read with confidence.
Yeah, well….it sounds good, so I plunked down my gift cards. I hope it’s good. It looks like 2/3 of the book is card explanations. Since I have a book or two like that, I’m…skeptical. But a friend of mine recommended it, so we’ll see.
Lastly, to my friends in affected by Hurricane Harvey, please be careful out there, and safe. Sending you thoughts of healing and strength to get through! So that’s me, this week. How about you all?
AGh! Wait! Addendum. Blogger friends:
I have been stung by Photo(f)bucket’s slamming the doors in our faces. I was wondering…do any of y’all know, a) how much space does Blogger give us for images, and b) do you know of some place like PB where we can keep our images? I’ve got tons of photos from tons of posts (out of the 700+ posts here and I’d hate to try to count how many of them have Photo(f)bucket logos now. I’ve looked at what I *think* is my blogger images page (???) and I’ve used up roughly half of my space–that not counting everything that’s still linked in from PB. I don’t think I have the space to move all those images over here, + all my own. My only other
option, if I can’t find some place to save all those images is either just leave them full of PB logos (yuck!) or take them offline. I hate to do that to the authors I’ve hosted over the years, (to break their SEO hits by removing the posts or remove everything but one cover image from their posts) but… yeah. If I’m running out of space, I may have to. 🙁 Suggestions? Please let me know in comments! Thanks in advance.
(And that is the only time I’m going to let this friggin’ template throw big text at you because, I needs suggestions!)
