On the other stove burner…

Jane_E, Friendless Orphan:  A Memoir

Yes, for the low, low price of $1.99, you can get a PDF ebook version.  The people on Amazon and Goodreads seem to like it.  Here’s hoping you will, too!  This offer is good through October 31, 2013.  In the meantime, if you haven’t already subscribed to my author page, I invite you do to so!

One Pot Wonder IS truth in advertising!

We followed the recipe for One Pot Wonder at Kim’s Simple Recipes.  It was a hit!  One might even say it was a wonder!

Review: Sons of Cain

Hey, Mackerelsnapperites!  I have a review of Sons of Cain by Catholic author Val Bianco over on my author page.

Go check it out, then check out Sons of Cain for yourselves!

St. Clare rocks!

I have some fun stuff about the book trailer we filmed this weekend, over at my author blog.  Check it out!

Yesterday’s 7QT over on my author blog

Here are seven thoughts on the death of our good old dog, Willow:  pro-life issues, faith vs. works, and do all dogs really go to heaven?

I’m also searching for a mid-1980s era CYO boy’s basketball shirt.  If you live in the PA/DE/MD/NJ area and have one of these, let me know?  If you don’t, say a prayer to St. Anthony.  I need to find one by next Saturday, June 1, to use in the filming of my book trailer.

That was the calm, cool, professional prayer request.  Now allow me to go all kinds of “SQUEEEEEEE I HAVE TO MAKE A BOOK TRAILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!”
