#ReblogAlert – Author Teri Polen’s Review of Harbinger: Wake-Robin Ridge Book 3

Yesterday morning, I had a great surprise: Teri Polen posted a fantastic review of my 3rd Wake-Robin Ridge novel, Harbinger. This book features the  Appalachian legend of the Black Dog, or Ol’ Shuck as he’s called in the mountains. If you see Ol’ Shuck, it means someone you know (or perhaps you, yourself) is going to die, and there’s not going to be much you can do about it. At least, so the legends insist. 

My heartfelt thanks to Teri for sharing her thoughts on this one, and I hope you’ll stop by her blog to check out what she had to say. Here’s the link for you:

Some great posts from the wonderfully talented folks at #StoryEmpire this week. If you haven’t already stopped by, here’s what’s been going on:

MONDAY:  Is Your Writing a Business or a Hobby? by Mae Clair. You definitely need to check this one out, especially if keeping track of expenses and how you should be handling your taxes, etc, is a foreign concept you haven’t quite grasped yet. VERY helpful post! You can read Mae’s post HERE.

WEDNESDAY: Show, Don’t Tell by Gwen Plano. This beautifully done post from Gwen struck a real chord with me, as she reminds us that memories are tricky issues and photographs can prove yours might not be as accurate as your recollections would have you think. Good advice here, and some touching photos, too. You can read Gwen’s post HERE.

FRIDAY: Don’t Talk Like That: How to Write Good Dialogue – Tags & Beats: by Harmony Kent. Harmony takes another look at how to write dialogue properly, focusing on beats and tags.
