As a child I wandered the moors of Yorkshire with my grandfather, mother and sometimes with my great-grandfather. Between them they taught me the old lore of the land; the myths, legends and folk tales as well as about the traces…

Lovecraft’s major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror: life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien. Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity. Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human-nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore. His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Christianity. Lovecraft’s protagonists usually achieve the mirror-opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality.
Although Lovecraft’s readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades. He is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe.

“There’s nothing wooden about Dead Man’s Carve. Roberts mingles a sparkling, unique voice with a great old-fashioned mystery.”Wendy Lyn WatsonMysteries a la ModePet Boutique Mysteries (as Annie Knox)
Rilee Dust isn’t your typical wood carver, she’s young and making a go of it in the small village of Tickle Creek, Oregon. She’s also the only one in town who isn’t determined to get rid of her strip club neighbor. Everyone else, however, is ready to evict the Girls, Girls, Girls.
When a dog adopts her and turns her life upside down, Rilee’s not so sure it’s a good thing. Especially when he leads her to a moose, a military man and a dead body. Because the moose kicked her butt, the man saved her life and the dead body is one of her customers.
Now Rilee’s smack dab in the middle of all the small town politics with a killer on the loose who has an ax to grind. And Rilee just may be the next victim to have her name carved in stone.
“Bogart!” I yelled, frantically circling and trying to locate the direction of his cries. “Bogart…Heeere!” Catching a glimpse of movement to my right I ran toward the commotion.
An eighty pound black and brown Boxer flew through the air in my direction. Ears cutting through the wind, his eyes looked crazed and his jowls flapped as he cried out in fear. The cause of his flight … an eight hundred pound Moose who was pissed off and raising cane. Or in this case raising Bogart with her nose. He landed on his feet — like a colt trying to stand for the first time — legs splitting, chest smacking the earthen floor.
None of that stopped his feet from moving. Bogart was back in the race of his life as the irate cow charged after him.
“Oh, crap.” My stomach dropped as I realized she wasn’t done with her assault, and I was the much larger target as Bogart led her straight to me. I turned and ran, with Bogart hot on my heels. The sound of the cow’s breath filled my head. The distance closed between us. Zigzagging through the trees, I couldn’t outrun her. Nor could I out-maneuver her. I just hoped she’d get tired and realized we weren’t a threat.
Unfortunately, she didn’t feel the same way.
Three career paths resonated for Kym during her early childhood: a detective, an investigative reporter, and…a nun. Being a nun, however, dropped by the wayside when she became aware of boys—they were the spice of life she couldn’t deny.
In high school her path was forged when she took her first job at a dry cleaners and met every cop in town, especially the lone female police officer in patrol. From that point on there was no stopping Kym’s pursuit of a career in law enforcement—even if she had to duct tape rolls of coins to her waist to meet the weight requirements to be hired.
Kym followed her dream and became a detective that fulfilled her desire to be an investigative reporter, with one extra perk—a badge. Promoted to sergeant Kym spent the majority of her career in SVU. She retired from the job reluctantly when her husband drug her kicking and screaming to another state, but writing continued to call her name, at least in her head.
Leaving it to you . . . Ghost? Reflection? Spirit? Well, more likely “Victorian-style Spirit Photography”!
Waiting for your comments!

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The annual burning of the Mexican boogeyman, known as El Kookooee, draws crowds to Albuquerque’s South Valley. At this year’s event, the burning may have drawn more than just people.
“All of us were just freaked out by this thing,” said Steve Vaughan.
The figure was captured in a picture taken by a pair of local firefighters at the burning Sunday. A ghost enthusiast said it could be some sort of wizard or spirit.
“It’s either a real humanoid figure up there hovering in the sky or it’s an extremely good projection from either a slide or some kind of camera,” said Rick Walter.
The image is getting a lot of attention.
“I showed it to them and they were all, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s wild,’ ‘I want to see that, text it to me,’ and then they put it on Facebook and it…

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Alright everyone, here is my teaser for Teaser Tuesday.
I followed his gaze across the dining room. A green-haired, slight-framed woman was leaning against the massive trestle dining table, balancing three pizzas boxes left over from our early lunch in one hand and eating a slice from the top one, which was open. She watched us as we entered.
“Emerald-green hair,” I murmured. Why did she look familiar?
“Werewolf,” Beau said, quiet and so, so scared. But it wasn’t the green-haired werewolf he was scared of. He was looking past her into the kitchen.
HA!! If you haven’t read them yet, you MUST READ Meghan Ciana Doidge’s Dowser Series!!!!!
Meghan has created a spectacular world! Jade attracts magic like honey attracts bees. Appropriate, when she owns a bakery called Cake In A Cup a creates cupcakes with names like “Love in a Cup” and “Bliss in a Cup”. Of course, the “trinkets” she creates from found objects is just a hobby . . . but when a vampire shows up, staring into her shop window, well, let’s just say that things get ‘interesting’ for Jade. In a very interesting, Chinese, May you live in interesting times sort of way! Set in Vancouver, BC, Canada, the Dowser Series is a creative new take on Urban Fantasy.
Now, she adds to that world with I See Me: Oracle #1. In this new branch to the series, we meet Rochelle Saintpaul, a deeply disturbed, (so says everyone else) difficult (ditto) teen with wicked nasty psychotic breaks (Yep. So say the multitudinous shrinks she has seen over the years). But then . . . are they Really psychotic breaks???
Aged out of the foster system, Rochelle buys a 21-foot Brave RV with her earnings from her Etsy store, where she sells her drawings of the scenes she sees in her mind when she has ‘incidents’, and hits the road to freedom. But what she finds on her trip will strain all her meticulously organized plans, as she finds herself dumped into a world of magic and terror. Crossing paths with Jade, her world becomes ever more dangerous and fraught with weirdness. Can it be that all her psychotic breaks truly are something very, very different?
You can read this new branch of the series without reading the first three in the Dowser Series – but why would you want to?!
Proofreading will be finished for Oracle today, and it should be out very soon. The holidays are coming, people . . . (hint, hint) And Book FOUR!!!! of Dowser is coming out soon as well!
Of course, once you get hooked on Dowser and Oracle, well, you can wait for the next books in the series by reading Meghan’s other books. These are in publication order:
Wow. Time flies, doesn’t it? Especially as you get older, it feels as if the hours and days, weeks and years simply fly by. This reminds me, as I look out the window and see the beauty, that time is so very fleeting. We should all make more of what time we have before it is all gone….
A couple of days ago the tree out front was absolutely covered with gorgeous, golden leaves. Now, she is dropping her finery, and I miss the fleeting beauty….
And finally, the last of the summer roses. One delicate blossom, now gone . . .

End of holidays.
One last pink blossom

its welcome surprise.
Now, it’s back to work.
