Telling tales – Burlington County Times: Medford

There is a really nice write-up in the Burlington County Times today on a charity event I will be speaking at this coming Saturday.

There’s even a few very unflattering photos. [Hits head on desk] Note to self: Next time think twice about agreeing to have your picture taken after a long day at work.

This is promoting Tall Tales and Short Stories from South Jersey.

Tickets are still on sale if you’d like to come out and support a great cause.

I’ll be hanging with Dawn Byrne, Joanne Costantino and Maria Gilbert March first, speaking to the Medford branch of the AAUW, the American Association of University Women, at Medford Leas on Route 70 at 11:30 a.m. Tickets for the champagne brunch are $30 with proceeds going to a scholarship fund for women returning to college. Contact Mary Ann Brookes at Mbrookes@comcast.net or 609-953-4035. Visit http://medford-nj.aauw.net

Here’s the article if you’d like to take a look.

2013 in review, as compiled by WordPress

Here’s my year-end review compiled by WordPress. I found some of this a bit amusing. It seems you guys like to read about the really fun stuff I blog about… Like my struggles with raising a challenge child (Who just came in and gave me a hug, thank you very much) and the great fun I had last year with skin cancer surgeries. Yeah, and you liked to read about my rejection letter too.  I see a trend, here!

Hey, it’s all good. I share because we are all human, and we Homo sapiens gotta stick together, right?

And for my Top Five Commenters, I’d like to offer your choice of one of my ebooks as a “thanks for participating”. Everyone hanging out makes this more fun. :-)

Happy 2014!

A Different Kind of Christmas Story. Well, kind of anyway

Here’s a Christmas story with a twist for you. (Well, there’s a Christmas tree at least) Check out Book Three of the Whispering Woods series by Brinda Berry.  Catch it while it’s hot!

swish swivel sparkle

Senior year should bring fun, friends and happiness. Not portals, treachery, and murder.

Seventeen-year-old Mia Taylor, gatekeeper to an interdimensional portal, wants nothing more than to heal from her romance gone wrong. Illegally falling for her co-worker Regulus had been a huge mistake. But when Regulus goes rogue to hunt down a murderer, Mia must forget her broken heart and use her unique abilities to save him.

Sound Cool?  Need more to tantalize you?  Here’s a mini excerpt:

Jingle Bells

I detested planned surprises.
I could read the expectation in the air from the shimmery orange vibe that glowed like a Cheetos binge gone bad.
A few months ago, my friends had discovered my secret. The secret I’d hidden so teachers and doctors wouldn’t treat me like an amped up sensory perception freak. So friends wouldn’t ask.
Synesthesia. The condition sounded like the name of an electronic punk band. I’d made the full round of emotions about my sensory perception and being able to find portals. First, I’d hid it like you hide an ugly rash. Later, I’d learned to trust my friends with my secret. I’d even embraced it.
Now, I was back to wishing for normal.
Working with Regulus and Arizona was like playing Pop Goes the Weasel—a surprise around every corner. And did I mention I hate surprises?
Give me predictable any day. Then I could be ready. It’s why I made sure I knew the contents of every box under the Christmas tree.

With Great Power Comes Great Responcibility

“With great power comes great responsibility.”**  It’s one of the most famous movie quotes of all time.  Thanks Uncle Ben!  Great words of wisdom. (From the first “Spider-Man” movie, 2002)

Now Available from Jennifer M. EatonDid you now that Stan Lee, the creator of Spider-Man never actually wrote that?  Well, he did, and he didn’t.  The original comic actually read: “With great power must also come great responsibility”.**

Did you know though, that this phrase was common far before Stan Lee? (I’ll give Stan credit for making it famous, though.  Kudos!)

You can trace this back to Voltaire.  Yep, that far back.  In 1817, a member of UK parliament actually said that the phrase had become cliché.

Cliché?  Maybe that’s because it can be applied to so many things, and it’s great advice, isn’t it?

So good, in fact, that you can…

Cover copy:

When dreams become reality, reality becomes a nightmare

Maya dreams of perfect skin, beautiful hair, good grades, and Eric Brighton—the boy she’s been crushing on since middle school. No matter how hard she tries, all these things elude her, but when a creepy college recruiter arrives with news that Maya has omnipotent powers, things change quickly.

Having everything she wants is a lot harder than Maya expects, though. Will she give it all up for the chance to be normal again, even if it means losing Eric?

The First Day of the New Tomorrow Releases on September 27th, but remember, if you want to be the first to read it, you can pre-order it in on my publisher Muse It Up’s Website right now for 20% off.  Way cool!

Holy Smoke! 1,000 Followers? How about a givaway?

Today my Web Site hit 1,000 direct followers. That’s 1,000 people who have logged in here through WordPress and hit the “follow” button.

My handy-dandy little stats calculator now tells me almost 7,500 people follow this blog through different outlets.  That is incredibly cool, and a little humbling.

Unbelievable.

I know that’s nothing compared to some other sites, but for this little author, I think it’s huge.

Thanks so much everyone for reading and participating. It means a lot when I see your cheery avatars, and you make it interactive.

And A big old Alligator “Hi and thanks” to everyone who reads my rantings faithfully through email and streaming, but choose not to comment.  I appreciate you as well!

I’m glad everyone gets something out of all this, even if it is only a little chuckle now and then.

Anyway… to celebrate, how about an impromptu giveaway?

It’s Release Day For My Book Paper Wishes! Wahoo!

I am super excited to announce the release of my sweet romance “Paper Wishes”

I have to admit that this feels a little weird in August because it’s Winter in the world of “Paper Wishes”, but what better way to cool down then cuddling up on the beach with a book that makes you think of snow!

Paper Wishes FinalPaper wishes is about a single mother who writes down a wish on a piece of paper, but quickly forgets about it.  Funny thing about wishes.  They have a way of coming true even if you’ve forgotten about them, and when her best friend Jack makes a wish that might tear them apart, a little girl’s completely unrelated wish could bring them all together… if their wishes can be twisted to make them all come true.

This theme may seem familiar because “Paper Wishes” was originally published under the name “Jack and Jill”.  The title was not picked up when Still Moments Publishing was purchased by White Rose Press.

I am thrilled that Astraea Press loved the story as much as I did, and “Paper Wishes” has been completely revamped and tightened for a brand new audience.

And at the bargain price of $0.99 I’m hoping everyone will take a chance on my little gem.

Paper Wishes Final
 To celebrate, I have an ebook copy to give away to a random commenter below.

I’ll also have a copy to give to a random person who shares on Facebook or Twitter.  Be sure to tag me so I see your post. :-)
