#CheckItOut – #ThatDarkestPlace – #Review by #DWallacePeach

What a fantastic surprise I found upon awakening this morning. Today was D. Wallace Peach’s March Reviews post. I headed right over because I always like to see what she’s been reading. Imagine how I delighted I was to find she’d reviewed my third Riverbend novel, That Darkest Place–and a super review it was, indeed!

I was in excellent company, too, as her reviews included Silverhills by Sandra Cox, Strange Hwy: Short Stories by Beem Weeks, Ghostly Interference by Jan Sikes, and Dead of Winter: Journey Twelve, Goddesses by Teagan Riordain Geneviene. 

Do stop by if you can, and see what Diana has to say about all five of these books. You’re sure to find something that appeals to you in this mix.

And thank you, Diana, for your wonderful comments on That Darkest Place, and the lovely reviews for each of the other four authors, too! I’m still smiling!

#InternationalDayOf Awesomeness – #SallyCronin – #SmorgasbordBlog – #Celebration – #StoryEmpire

A most remarkable thing happened on Thursday.
For those who weren’t aware (like me),
Thursday was the official
International Day of Awesomeness. 

While I may have been oblivious about this day,
the good folks over at Story Empire were not!

Nope. These wonderfully talented and sharing authors decided to celebrate the day in grand style by letting the world know exactly who they thought deserved to be honored in all her awesomeness: 

Sally Cronin

Now, I can’t speak for everyone, but I suspect that most of us who spend a lot of time blogging and/or writing are very familiar with Sally and her fabulous Smorgasbord blog, and have probably been the beneficiaries of her support and encouragement many times. I know I certainly have! And if you missed out on all of these great tributes to this lovely lady, I do hope you’ll stop by her blog to read her post about how she spent her Thursday, and what it meant to her. 

You can read Sally’s post (and find links to each Story Empire post) HERE.


Sally, I hope you continue to feel the love for a long, long time. You deserve it my friend! And as always, never forget YOU ROCK!
