Write What You Know!

So often blogs or articles give advice to authors, telling them to write what they know about.

This cartoon, whose creator I sadly don’t know but would like to give credit to, depicts this advice humorously.

It was my laugh for the day:

Prequel to The Alkahest to be released this month!

I’m excited to announce the upcoming release of the prequel to the Thoughtmover series entitled, “The Master’s Arcanum.”

This short story tells the tale of the beginning of the Great War of the Thoughtmovers. Royal Movers are forced into hiding to avoid capture by the rising of the  Tarconian army. Lord Magtor must race to get his family to the safety of the Golden caves if they are to have any hope of surviving.  As the keeper of the world-altering Arcanum, Magtor must avoid capture at all cost or the Land of Kaldanien would fall under the tyrannical rule of the dark Tarconian Lord as his slaves, never to see peace again.

A New Member to Our Family

We recently had a new addition to our family – a Siberian Husky.

Life in our home has certainly changed due to this one and half year old pet that my son has adopted.  I’m certainly getting more exercise with needing to take her for frequent walks. Better yet, with her energy, she is walking me.

We have only had her for a few weeks, but she already has become a family member. Amazing how quickly we all fell in love with her. 

 

 

I read a quote the other day about dogs and their personalities that I found interesting. 

A dog reflects the family life. Whoever saw a frisky dog in a gloomy family, or a sad dog in a happy one? Snarling people have snarling dogs, dangerous people have dangerous ones.” – Arthur Conan Doyle

I wondered  if  there is truth to this statement? As a new dog owner, I went to “Cesar’s Way” website and found this article written by Nicole Pajer that says what your dog’s behavior says about you.
