Soon I will be posting form Europe!

I will not be posting daily as usual; I am busy editing and submitting some writing in addition to preparing for a month in Europe! 
Thanks to the encouragement and support from our kids we will be traveling to Europe in October and returning in November. I will have iPad and iPhone and intend to write about our travels. Some places we will visit we didn't even know existed until writing VIRGINS took us there. 
VIRGINS is an Urban Fantasy and a bit Paranormal Romance. Here I am proud to post the link to a news release about VIRGINS published by the Wildwood Literary Review, and  encourage you to enjoy the wonderful writers featured in the WLR

Make your glob a blog.

"Ok don't panic, just keep reading and maybe print a few things, Rome was not built in a day and  your blog mighty be a glob of words now but it might have the potential to serve you and others, so go forward and onward. Remember you learn by sharing and get by giving." This is what I told myself while reading this post on Jeff Bullas' site.
