Fiction Friday: Who Knows Where the Time Goes

Across the morning sky, all the birds are leaving . . . Friday came and went and I realized at the end of the day that as my summer winds down and I prepare for the journey south my writing has taken precedence over my Fiction Friday posts. Like the geese flying overhead every day,…

Fiction Friday: Book Collections

Welcome to Fiction Friday. On Tuesday I showed you a few of the “prized possessions” which now adorn our summer cottage.

Fiction Friday: Banned Books

Welcome to Fiction Friday. Over the past month I’ve featured book lists here, one made up of summer reading selections chosen by my readers, one with bestseller and most popular lists, and last week the 2014 reading list of the historic Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle. Today here’s another to share with you. Have you ever had to fight…

Fiction Friday: Popular Novels and Bestseller Lists

Welcome to Fiction Friday. I thought for fun today instead of excerpts, I would look for popular novels in four different places. Last week I listed ten novels from the most recent entrants in my July book giveaway.  In order to be eligible to win one of three copies of Somewhere Between Luck and Trust, Book Two of the Goddesses…

Fiction Friday: What Are You Reading?

Welcome to Fiction Friday, the “What are you reading?” edition. My last email newsletter offered readers a chance to win one of three copies of Somewhere Between Luck and Trust. I asked them “what are you reading?” All they had to do to enter was tell me a book on their summer list. Everybody who did…
