March 25th is #TolkienReadingDay! @Genreundregoun

Hi, all, I hope you had a good week.

Sorry I was so silent. Aside from being away at mom’s for the solstice, I had trouble signing into WP. *grr* (Isn’t “Save This Password” supposed to, you know, save your password and not redo your password?) Anyway, movies. I have a review to write up of The Hobbit–I’m still gestating it but in a word–wow! Also, I missed the ending of Once Upon A Time!

Again! (Note to family: do not call me on Sunday Nights, after 8PM or before 9PM unless it’s an emergency ! Grr!). *sigh*

Anyway, speaking of Tolkien, the Genre Underground is hosting a Tolkien Reading Appreciation day sale.Image

And featuring 20 fantasy novels in honor of the master of Fantasy! Organizer, fantasy author Christopher Kellen, author Karin Rita Gastreich, and several others are involved, along with…oh, yes that’s right. Me. 🙂

The Artist’s Inheritance is $.99 at AmazonBarnes and Noble and Smashwords.

Y’all know this one, right? 😉

The balance between good and evil can be an art… or a curse.

Trevor and Caitlin were once happy newlyweds, profiting from Trevor’s art. Until Trevor inherits his brother’s house, and with it, his part of a family curse. Now, Caitlin will stop at nothing to save her beloved husband from insanity and suicide, even if it means she must embrace her destiny and become a witch.

 

 

And if you’d like a fantastic dark short story (so I’ve heard it’s fantastic. ;)) House of Cards also is involved in Tolkien Reading Day Sale.

House of Cards, supernatural fantasy story by Juli D. Revezzo
Available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble and Smashwords

House of Cards

Can you gamble with Fate?

A young nobleman escapes the Reign of Terror in 18th century France to find himself dragged into an even worse fate–a hellish underworld wherein he is cajoled and put on trial by a demon tribunal for crimes he never committed. Can he  thwart his fate, one worse than the guillotine?
Genre: Horror, Supernatural, Mythic. $.99

Author’s Notes: In this story, the hero faces a trickster who gives him three tarot-related riddles and puts him on trial for crimes he never committed.
You can see Christopher’s post and the list of participating authors here: http://www.genreunderground.com/?page_id=336

So…go poke around, check out some great stuff, and spread the word. ;)Meanwhile, I’ll be catching up on some writing work I must catch up on and hopefully getting that review up here soon. Meanwhile, Happy Monday!

Fantasy Book Sale

The Magic Appreciation Tour, a lovely little group of Fantasy authors with which I’m involved is having a sale–and some free goodies are involved. All books are magical fantasy to some degree, all books are under $5. Do check it out , won’t you?

Witches Have a Fashion Moment – NYTimes.com

This may or may not qualify as “Weird” or freaky, depending on your point of view. Personally, I always find it kind of…odd when something I’ve loved…oh, forever hits the mainstream. So…Witches are fashionable now? Wow!

Since I include them in most every story I write, I think it’s a nifty development. What do you think?

House Wife Blues and Chihuahua Stories: It’s MY room! Bloggers Help Paws With a Cause Fundraiser Day 2.

This is something I’ve been sharing on Twitter this week. But I wanted to share it here too. Y’all know I did the charity anthology Dark Things II: Cat Crimes in 2011 and with losing my favorite pooch this last year and because Veterans are dear to my heart, I wanted to get in on this event too. Alas, time got away from me.  But my friend Jackie and some other fine bloggers and authors are participating, so I couldn’t help but point you in their direction. Do go check out their fine posts. I see some that have giveaways too. So do enjoy.

And Ladies, *salutes* Fine job!

Hello all, I hope you’ve had a good week so far. I’ve been doing tons of revisions, so busy more offline than on.  My goodness! I can’t believe we’re already halfway through February! Wasn’t it just Christmas a second ago?
