The Gift in Giving

I've read that giving is supposed to make you feel good, as good as the happy-joy-joy a chocolate addict - erm - chocolate connoisseur like myself experiences when indulging in my chocolate cravings. Aside from the five pounds I gained just thinking about chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, and so, so, soooo much more, I have to admit it does my heart good to give.

I don't have much, but when I give, I try to do so from my heart, which I suppose is why I get the good-feels when I give.

And so, I'm glad to share about this giveaway.

Please participate. You never know who may win.

2nd Annual Bookish Whaaaaaaa?

Amazon | Nook | iTunes | Google play
That would be the 2nd Annual Bookish Halloween Giveaway at O. D. Book Reviews. Spirits in the Water is up for grabs. Click here to review the prizes and then enter the giveaway to win!!

Book Description:
A haunted journey on a riverboat, water sprites borne of pennies, preternatural creatures, ancient serpents, and the Lady of the Lake lurk in dark waters. Raging storms and magical rainbow fountains. Water is spectacularly beautiful but also treacherous.

Gwen Gardner gives us Shake, Rattle and Row. Harlow Grayson has the chance to rid herself of a pesky ghost but she must first brave a haunted riverboat and recover a family heirloom. What she finds might be more than she can handle.

Jeff Chapman offers The Water Wight. When a drowned girl changes her mind about suicide, Merliss and her associates face a fearsome, preternatural creature.

M. Pax presents The Wallows. Evernee Weems wants to escape this world in the worst way. Her daughter needs everything, the rent is being raised, Evernee’s job barely pays minimum wage, and she has little hope for better. Inside a puddle is a different reality. She jumps in, happy to trade her problems for a life in which worries don’t exist. Or do they?

Angela Brown gives us Extraordinary. Puberty hits Angelique like a gut punch and brings about a change, forcing an unexpected revelation about her past. All seems well until a vicious storm tears through her Texas community, and Angelique learns there are worse things than a little change.

River Fairchild presents You Can’t Go Home Again. A young woman, filled with regret about the past, goes on a journey and discovers more than she bargained for.

Simon Kewin offers us The Waters, Dividing the Land. Hyrn the horned god of the woodlands is learning the meaning of fear. Death magic blights the land, threatening everyone and everything. To save what he can from spreading corruption, he turns to the ancient river serpents, but they’ve grown old and distant and may not hear his call at all.

Christine Rains gives us Frozen. A necromancer is on the frozen moon of Saturn where the dead do scream.

Meradeth Houston presents The Flood. Sometimes a flooded kitchen isn’t the unluckiest thing to happen to you.

Catherine Stine offers Maizy of Bellagio. April still searches for her mother who vanished nineteen years ago from the fountain at Hotel Bellagio in Vegas. Can Maizy, a water sprite who works the fountain’s pink colors, begin to help the three generations of eccentric women tortured by this tragedy?

M. Gerrick gives us The One Who Would Wield the Sword. Nikka is supposed to be nothing more than dragon bait so a real dragon hunter can do his job, but the Lady in the Lake has other plans for her.

Cherie Reich presents The Folding Point. Aimee’s fight against those who banned paper magics has begun.

From USA Today, Amazon bestselling, and popular science fiction and fantasy authors comes Spirits in the Water, a supernatural anthology of eleven thrilling tales. Spirits in the Water is the fourth, long-awaited Elements story collection from the dynamic and inventive Untethered Realms group.

Throwback Thursday

There are plenty of memories that stand out for me, both good and the not-so-good. This picture is from one of those really awesome times. Meeting up with Graeme Ing and Gwen Gardner really brought me so much joy. To see my writer buds, to put faces to names, voices to words we exchanged over the internet...

So. Much. Happy!!!

Have you had a chance to meet up with your author buds IRL? How was your experience?
