Welcome to the Blogger Daily and a quick look at some of the posts I have read in the last couple of days. It is Valentine’s Day and have tried to find a flavour of that amongst the selection… but all the posts are from talented writers. There are also some FREE books on offer to take advantage of. Don’t forget to leave the link to your latest post in the comments section so that I can share.
First is author D. Wallace Peach who is looking forward to her latest release in March.. Diana has shared some of the characters in recent weeks but today introduces us to The Goddess.. The Rose Shield is a four book fantasy series and the first book is Catling’s Bane. Here is an excerpt from Diana’s post where she introduces us to The Goddess.
Meet the Goddess
(Raker’s voice in the fog is no longer simply a voice)
Raker poled the raft through the narrow channels, wandering his way toward the floating village deeper in the swamp. Morning mists hovered as a forbidding sky scudded eastward, promising sheets of rain. The goddess caressed him, twirled in languid circles, veils of dew flowing from her arms like wings.
She stroked his back with a fingertip. “Your indifference is as disputable as your madness.”

Now for more than a touch of romance.. a poem and a tribute to love from N.N. Light on her blog Princess of the Light. And her book Poetry of Love: The Engagement Year is FREE today. https://www.amazon.com/Poetry-Love-Engagement-N-Light-ebook/dp/B01M13IKRH
Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s time to talk about romantic love and I dedicate this day and inspirational thought to the man who taught me the real meaning of love, Mr. N.
From the time I was three, I dreamt of my Prince Charming, the handsome man who would love me and make all my dreams come true. I know it sounds like the total cliche but that is exactly what Mr. N did.
Next Aurora Alexander interviews Don Massenzio in her Author Spotlight post.
- Are you still writing in the same genre as you did before, and if not, why did you switch – or would you ever think to change genres?
Interestingly enough, a couple of months before last year’s interview, I had released a terrorist thriller Blood Orange which, after writing three detective mystery novels, was a change in genre. I have since released another two detective mysteries, but I am writing a follow-up to that thriller as readers seemed to like the main character and his team. It will, however, crossover into the universe of my detective novels.
