Uh….ooops?

Have you ever wondered why people blog? I have.  I think about it every day, to find the reason that I’m blogging.  A problem though, and a bit of a hiccup to it all…

Back? Maybe not, maybe just more vocal…

So. I went my quietest that I’ve ever been in the last few years on social media.  I’ve cut back massively on Facebook, I’m not on Twitter at all really, I’m rarely posting photos to Instagram.  I’ve become slightly more active on Goodreads, but only because I pledged to read 500 books this year.  I’m well on track, I just need to record that, but I’ve spent the last few days…weeks…months really, hiding in my room.  Sleeping.  Watching TV.  No games on my computer, but I did spend a lot of time on my Kindle fire.  I did also do…

The 34 Seconds tour: Deltaville Steamed Blue Crabs

Welcome to the tour for Stella Samuel’s book, 34 Seconds.  To kick off the tour, I asked Stella to share with me a recipe with me that meant something to her for her or her book. Stella told me she was sharing recipes with me – Steamed Crabs and Hush Puppies.  I live in the UK, so I was understandably confused by Hush Puppies – they are a brand of shoes here…But we cleared that up and I’m delighted to share. I’ll let Stella explain: When I was growing up in Deltaville, my grandfather would spend the morning on his boat…

Heaven’s Vault release – Pavarti K Tyler #newrelease

Kai’s note – Pavarti is one of the indies I think should be watched – she’s smart, literate and writes amazing stuff. HOT NEW RELEASE Maia watched for more than a millennia, waiting for a second chance at life on Earth. A hot, unforgiving desert greets her upon arrival, but her surroundings aren’t her only problem. In human form, fleeting memories of a past life haunt her. Will she be whole when she rediscovers who she is, or will the reality of her existence require she make yet another sacrifice? This short story by Pavarti K Tyler is a literary…

Why I failed at the #AtoZ challenge this year and #Kaiatus #Mondayblogs

Challenging myself to write three 26 blog, along with a book launch, and everything else going on in my life was probably a bad idea. But I’d planned it a few months ago and couldn’t back out. Now though, I’m planning a whole new project – I’m calling it #Kaiatus, and I’m hoping that I can finally finish up the niggling stuff, get some space from social media and find my way back to my ‘happy place’. There is no way I can put a positive spin on backing out of work, but there’s a good reason. I’m going to…

I’m interrupting my social media posts to offer you something neat. How would you like up to 150 images free?  Of your choice? How would you like five images a day, for $4.95 a month? I’ve been testing it out,… Continue Reading
