Bloodstone: The Curse Of Time Book 1 by @Marjorie_Mallon  #BlogTour

A wonderful post for Bloodstone The Curse of Time Book 1.

But I Smile Anyway...

I am delighted to invite my dear friend, and blog sis, Marjorie Mallon, to my blog today to let you all know about the re-release of her first novel, Bloodstone: The Curse Of Time Book 1. It has recently been picked up by a publisher, been given a makeover of sorts, and is back out there, in the book wild, and I, for one, am thrilled for Marje, because she has worked so hard for this! I read it the first time round, and I’ve also had a sneak peak at a very early draft of Book 2. Lots of fun in store for readers!

Let me pass you over to Marje!

Thank you so much Ritu for being part of my impromptu blog tour for my re-release of Bloodstone, The Curse of Time Book 1.

A love of writing, began for Annette when she was but a small child. Of course, she gives all the credit to her parents, who read to her and her siblings from the moment they were born. Once in school, teachers took over the roles of main influencers, as they required the students to do a lot of (wait for it… wait for it…) WRITING!

Over the years, Annette has been blessed with having both hobbies and jobs that required her…

May Book Reviews

Great reviews from myths of the mirror and a shout out to Colleen Chesebro and Teagan Geneviene excellent ladies.

Myths of the Mirror

Summer is Coming (or Winter)! Time for some reading!

Summer is always a busy time of year here in the Pacific Northwest. The rain stops and we all spill outside. My husband and I named our deck “vacation.” So every afternoon we go outside on “vacation” to read.

May book reviews include my4 and 5 star reads of a lot of poetry, two installments of a serial fantasy, a fallen angel fantasy, a thriller, and a prequel to a new mystery. I hope you enjoy them.

Introducing: Word Weaving—A Word Craft Journal of Syllabic Verse

A fantastic new site from Colleen and Jules please go and visit. ❤

📝Word Weaving📝

Word Weavingbegan as a creative experiment between two poetic friends, Colleen Chesebro and JulesPaige, birthed from our combined love for writing syllabic poetry on Word Craft: Prose & Poetry at wordcraftpoetry.com. Those Tanka Tuesday poetry challenges got us thinking. What if we published a yearly poetry journal of syllabic verse to encourage emerging poets?

Jules and I are excited to contribute to the writing community. Our aim is to be a small, online, and print poetry journal that shares thoughtful syllabic poetry with uplifting fresh voices while supporting established ones. There are no submission fees. Read our submissions page to learn more.

The proceeds from the sale of this journal will be used to sponsor a yearly poetry contest on Word Craft: Prose & Poetry atwordcraftpoetry.comto be announced in 2022. Prizes will be determined at a later date. We will keep the cost of the ebook…

Sally’s wonderful post for books with new reviews, including Wolfe Manor Thank you Sally. xxx

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Welcome to the Cafe and Bookstore Weekly News – where I will share recent reviews for authors in the Cafe.

Firstly some great news from Marcia Meara who has created a three book boxed set of The Emissary series for you to enjoy..

About the series and book 1

From Book 1: Was Gabe Angelino, the mysterious truck driver in Finding Hunter: Riverbend Book 2, really an angel, as Willow Green believes? Or was he simply a good man, determined to help a stranger in need? Find out, as author Marcia Meara reveals the truth in the first Riverbend spinoff novella, The Emissary.

An angel’s work is never done—that’s part of the gig. But angels hadn’t been created to deal with such a vastly over-populated planet, rife with misery, suffering, and general chaos. Helping souls in peril has become a nearly impossible job, and even angelic tempers are frayed.
