Annette 3D Promo Oct plus B

Yesterday saw the release of the monthly magazine edited by Annette Rochelle Aben. Packed with articles including articles on Embracing your Weird by Linda Lang and What the World Needs Now by Annette herself.. Plenty for everyone.

It’s the first of the month, which can mean only one thing… well, okay it could mean MANY THINGS but for me, it means the latest edition of The Magic Happens awaits you!

We gave the writers the choice of 3 prompts this month, SLEEP, BOUND or WEIRD (gee, guess which one I chose). Come see what they came up with and leave a smallish comment if you are so inclined.

Read this month’s magazine:

Cathy Ryan

Time for another review from Cathy Ryan of Between the Lines and this time a romance set in Ireland. There is a very romantic air which circulates around this Emerald Isle. In the music the folklore and in the smiles of the people. A great setting for a love story.


Escaping to a remote Irish isle, journalist Marianne Coltrane had not bargained for a tumultuous affair with movie star Ryan O’Gorman.

When Ryan leaves to pursue his career, Marianne remains to care for those who need her most, but Ryan soon realises he cannot live without her and returns to woo her back.

Read Cathy’s review:

Darlene Foster

Time for an author interview with Darlene Foster.

Today I am pleased to introduce an author who I have been following for quite some time. She started writing seriously around the same time I did and was one of the first authors I met through blogging. I have read most of her books and thoroughly enjoyed every one. I consider her a hardworking, talented and diverse author. Here is my interview with Linda Cassidy Lewis.


Tell us a bit about you and your books I live in central California, just about midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco and an hour closer to the Sierras than the Pacific Ocean. This year my high school sweetheart and I will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary—yes, we married very young. We have four grown sons and seven grandchildren. I got a late start on writing seriously, but now I have four novels with a fifth to be released soon. I write women’s fiction, humorous romance, and, occasionally, darker fiction.

Read the rest of the interview:

For the last post of the day here is a non-fiction book reviewer who has some interesting things to say about our reading and learning potential. I read several non-fiction books every year that are health related and I have certainly read a great many management books over my career. But I must admit it is tempting to slip in to fiction for recreational purposes. Time to take a look at my TBR list I think an add in some books to expand my mind.  Here is Tyler Wright of The Wright Read blog with a review of the book on social media by Oliver Luckett and Michael J. Casey,


What is Social Media?

Is it a way to share thoughts?

Or a communication system that connected the entire world?

In The Social Organism, Oliver Lucket talks about what Social Media is, and how it works. He believes that it goes beyond communicating, sharing, and liking. He compares Social Media to a living organism, with memes for cells and trolls for viruses.

It was a really interesting way of looking at Social Media, and I learned couple of great things. On the flip side, this was a really bland book. So, in order to save you all the headache of reading this book, I am going to go over the parts of the book that will help you become more successful on Social Media.

Thanks for dropping by today and please don’t forget to leave a link to your latest post in the comments section.. Sally.
