It's Summertime

Hello Everyone,

It is summertime, that hot time of year.  This is the time when families, friends, relatives and all will be getting

together for those big family reunions and family gatherings in the backyard.  I love summetime even though

it is muggy hot down south.  That is one reason some call it the "dirty south".  (smile).  I love all of God's

seasons.  They are all very special times of the year.  God made all of them for a reason.  The…

Book signing

The day of my book signing it was in the 70's here in Alaska. So everyone was outside enjoying the warm weather because we have short summers here. Everyone enjoys the light also for the same reason.  So Barnes and Noble was slow . I talked with one person about publishing books and one person bought a book.

Social Marketing Success and Counting!!!

A Big Thank You To Everybody!

Everyone makes choices, some good, some not so good.  The difficulty lies in learning to live with them.  I learned the long-term effects of one bad choice that led my life into a downward spiral. 

My sharpest memories were shrouded in darkness, and no amount of hope for the future could change the past.  I wanted to find my reset button, but the only thing I could do was put one foot in front of the other and continue onward, hoping each cloud had a silver lining. 

This is not…

Pusa kong Mataba


Umaalis nalang palagi dumarating pag may kailangan

Bisyo nyay kumain  at matulog ng walang haggan

Snabero ito at nang aaway kung wala sa mood 


Bakit ka ganyan

Di kita pinalaking ganyan

Walang magawa sa buhay kundi matulog nalang


Pusa kong mataba lumalaki sa kanyang mga gawa

Kumakain at natututulog sa araw araw na pamumuhay

Walang problema at iniisip ang pusang ito

Sya ngayoy…

   A book about a light in the dark.

while the entire universe waits for the morning rise, some one out there is working it out with the dark rays. could be a blessing to have an easy schedule out when the moonlight appears on time to help!

   It mostly centers on true African culture. Definitely; there has to be a 'light' a hope in the dark, somewhere, somehow, only if you search.

Book Pirates

Can barely contain hopping mad!

Today, while checking on my distribution sites, came up with one not on my list of designated retailers.

This company is selling copies of my e-book without permission. Adding insult to injury, their price is DOUBLE what mine is going for via legal sites.

These criminals are sitting back, collecting money for something I sweated blood creating, with no intention of passing along a royalty check any time…

Adult Truth #10


Bad decisions make good stories.”

I'll wager you are thinking of several bad decisions in your life and how those could be turned into a short story or a scene in a novel. You may have to change the names/locations/dates to protect the guilty (and save yourself a lawsuit) or you may have to embellish the facts a bit to make the anecdote play out a little better in written…

Do Something To Make Someone Else Happy

Each day we awake, we should feel oh so new.  It is just amazing that God has blessed us to live to see another beautiful day.

We should all be so grateful.  The thoughts of love and harmony should embrace our inner beings and our souls.  It is wonderful

and magnificent to be able to get up out of that bed…

Sound familiar? Dr. Seuss wrote the poem as an inspiration and promise to children.

Women Awakening Essential

Everybody who experimented any kind of  loses,from earthquake to death of someone loved,  put himself the question: Why me? Am I  guilty , am I blamed or I made a mistake in my life?

Those and other many philosophical questions about what our brains are, who we are, and why we're asking these questions all of our fears in life can be traced back to the most fundamental one: not knowing who we are.

And therefore, the goal of higher states of…

An excerpt from The Three Worlds of the Witches

Where were they she thought, the voices, they were supposed to join me after breakfast. Something small flying about near the ceiling high above caught her eye, she’d not expected to see flies in a place like this. She fixed her gaze on it there was something strange about it, that shimmer... As it got bigger and came slowly closer Delia was horrified to see it was a…
