Win Healing Crystals in Blog Hop

December 10, 2012

holiday-blog-hop-2aWelcome Holiday Blog Hoppers! Grand Prizes Include TWO Kindle Fires!

hAin’t Love Grand? was my first book. They say “write what you know”–and who did I know better than myself and my husband? While the storyline of the plot is fictional, the relationship between The Healer (me) and The Lawyer (my hubby) certainly hits close to home.

My interest in holistic healing has grown through the years. Today, I am a Reiki Master Practitioner, working with healing energies on my clients. Each client gets to take home a small bottle of energized healing water. I considered offering that as a Blog Hop prize, but the post office isn’t too keen on sending liquids through the mail. So, instead I’m offering  two energized  amethyst  rock crystals as prizes. Each stone will be infused with a high frequency to promote healing and a sense of well being.

 Two Prizes: Amethyst Crystal Rocks infused with Healing Energy

Ain’t Love Grand?

December 6, 2012

hWinner 2005 Best First Book Golden Quill Award

The Healer vs. the Lawyer. Energy healer, Persephone Jones, has a new neighbor in Peeler, Oklahoma—hot shot lawyer, Jason Brooks. They meet in June; it would take a miracle to bring these two together by Christmas. She’s a vegan; he likes his steaks rare. She’s about saving Mother Earth while he protects the interests of Big Business. Their attraction is mutual, but disturbing. And life gets even more complicated when the whole town is caught in a conflict that pits these two on opposite sides of a political fence….Foreword Magazine says AIN’T LOVE GRAND? is “written with a fresh voice, an impeccable sense of comedic timing, vivid narrative, and fascinating characters.”

Grab a cup of cocoa and get in the holiday spirit!

Available as an ebook for at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.

Raise your spirits with these stories of hope, family, and a touch of the angelic.

Shiny Green Shoes–Oklahoma, 1935. An unlikely friendship between a young black child and an aging white actress brings hope to a town down on it luck.

Refiner’s Fire–San Diego, 2008. As fire destroys her home, a woman comes to understand what’s really important in life. Based on a true incident.

Patty’s Angels–Los Angeles, 1960. A little girl changes lives and brings people together, with the help of her celestial best friends.

Red Adept Reviews–The ending was wonderful, with all threads of the story tied up neatly. I’m a fan of Hallmark Christmas movies, which are quite often based on short stories. I could easily see a movie being made from this one.

What people say about HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Available as an ebook for $1.99 at Amazon  Barnes & Noble

Featured at Daily Cheap ReadsE-Reader News Today, and The Frugal E-Reader

L.C. Evans:

The three holiday stories in Hope for the Holidays are uplifting and enjoyable and I loved all three. My favorite of the three was Patty’s Angels. When I was a little girl, I delighted in stories about angels, especially guardian angels. I longed to actually see an angel and, though I never did, on one occasion I believe an angel saved me. Patty’s innocence and childlike wonder are precious and eventually this sweet child and her angels help to bring joy to the lives of others.

Mazie in Shiny Green Shoes was a delightful character, as was Peach Knight. Their unlikely friendship led to great things for Mazie’s future. But the holiday part of the story made Christmas of 1935 a very special one for all the people of Luther, Oklahoma, who had struggled through the depression. All the townspeople came together for an unforgettable and heartwarming celebration.

The shortest story was about a woman who didn’t want to accept her daughter’s husband, until a disaster taught her what was really important in life.

Lynn O’Dell at Red Adept Reviews about Shiny Green Shoes:

This adorable short story drew me in from the opening scene of a deserted theater. Mazie McDonald was there, contemplating her rise to fame and how it all started with her friendship of an elderly white woman who was an actress back in her prime.

I enjoyed this story from start to finish. Mazie’s friendship with Miss Peach was expertly built. The scenes were interesting, and the tale was pretty fast moving with no wasted words.

I began to wonder, about halfway through, how this story was going to tie into Christmas. Soon, it flowed nicely with some holiday spirit as Mazie and Miss Peach showed a town how to celebrate even in the depths of the Depression. 

The ending was wonderful, with all threads of the story tied up neatly. I’m a fan of Hallmark Christmas movies, which are quite often based on short stories. I could easily see a movie being made from this one.
