Number 1 1950 (Lavender Mist)

Number 1 – 1950 (Lavender Mist) by Jackson Pollock

I’ve known I wanted to tell stories since I was six. I didn’t realize that meant writing, but I knew stories were the thing that made up my core. I would send my Barbie dolls through epic Amazonian adventures, I would stay up hours after being sent to bed telling myself stories, I would go on crazy adventures in my backyard with my invisible companions (companions, not friends, because the cast was constantly changing). And when I started to take language arts and literature classes, writing beckoned me temptingly as I hurried through my grammar and spelling lessons.

Obsession Sessions: Cup (of tea) cakes

I am a firm believer in the afternoon tea and treat. And lately — the last few Wednesdays — that treat has been cupcakes. A fantastic little cupcake shop opened up in our town a few months ago and it may be the wonderful end of me. Fabulous, tiny, paper-cup wrapped bites of happiness. Really, somethings just can’t be described. So instead of using words, which we authors are always trying to do, I’m going to be quiet and just let the pictures do the talking.

Manly May 2.0

image credit: vectorportal

Wow, did April fly by quickly. And we all know that April showers (wind storms, snow storms, random hot days) bring Manly May! 🙂

We are keeping it simple again this time around. Manly Hero: A Small Tale, is now on sale for $0.99 on amazon (Only the Kindle version is on sale, the paperback is still regular price). So if you haven’t read it yet, there is still time before we finish Manly Hero book two. And let me tell you, some crazy stuff is going down in book two. Crazy. Stuff.

However, next year we want to make Manly May a little more, well, Manly? Let’s just say we’d like to mix it up. So we’d love to hear your ideas for what we can do next year to make Manly May more fun. Contests? Special book covers? T-shirts? Feel free to drop us a comment with your great idea for Manly May 2014 and we will put it into the mix.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already purchased a copy, grab it for now. Or later. Later is good, too. We’d just love you to read it. 🙂
