Merry Christmas!

With the exception of a post scheduled for January 2nd, I’m out of here for the next two weeks.  A couple of days after New Year’s, you can find me geeking out with other fellow Gryffindors in Harry Potter World at Universal Studios – can’t wait!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


Thoughts on: Teri Polen, Sarah

A wonderful dreary Monday morning surprise! Drop by Rebecca Howie’s blog to read her thoughts on Sarah. Rebecca’s new book, A Woman Scorned, released earlier this month.



Minor spoilers ahead.

It’s almost Christmas, and I’m almost finished my A-Z reviews, and since there’s been a ton of indie books appearing on my Instagram feed for the #dectheshelves challenge, I decided to start reading more of them, and I started with Sarah by Teri Polen.

Horror stories aren’t my thing, so I was out of my comfort zone with this one.

On the Edge of a Raindrop ~ Published #NewRelease

Something FREE for Cyber Monday by Sarah Brentyn!

Lemon Shark

My lovely, little flash collection is here!

On the Edge of a Raindrop is now available in eBook.

As I mentioned in my post, Hinting at Happiness: “Good flash fiction packs a punch. It heightens emotional responses, engages readers, makes them think…and keeps them thinking.”

I hope to engage readers this way with a glimpse of lives on the edge.

Thanks to all my amazing tweeps, lovely blogging friends, and fellow writers who supported and encouraged me. You are, all of you, awesome. ❤

Blurb for On the Edge of a Raindrop:


These are stories of lives on the edge.

A girl tortured by the world within her. A boy powerless to escape his home. A mother doomed to live with her greatest mistake. A man lost in a maze of grief.

Each raindrop provides a microscopic mirror of ourselves and…

Are You Ready for Body Armor, Because It’s Finally Here!

It’s finally here – Staci Troilo’s new book in her Medici Protectorate series!

Staci Troilo

Body Armor coverWell, I think it’s about six months late, give or take a week or so, but at long last I can happily announce the release of Body Armor, book 3 of the Medici Protectorate series.

Many of you have asked when it was coming, and I’ve been vague in my answers because a litany of bizarre issues kept pushing the release back. But it’s finally here, at least in a limited capacity.

The eBook is available on Amazon, and more eBook carriers will be added soon. The paperback and hardcover versions are also on the way. I am sharing the Universal Purchase Link because other vendors will automatically be added to it as the title becomes available at other retailers.

Thank you for your patience in waiting for its release. I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I enjoyed writing it.

The Authors Bookshelf – Teri Polen @TPolen6

I’m a little late reblogging this – out of town this past weekend. Book lover and indie author supporter Claire Ayres interviewed me for her feature, The Authors Bookshelf – jump over for a visit!

BrizzleLass Books

Welcome to The Bookshelf. Each week I feature an author or book blogger and talk about their bookshelf with them. It’s a light-hearted, book focused, Q&A.

This week I have Teri Polen, I’ve been speaking with Teri via our blogs for a while now, and her horror novel, Sarah has received some fantastic reviews from bloggers I highly regard.

I hope you enjoy peeking into her bookshelf…

What was the first book you remember having on your bookshelf?
I know there were plenty before, but the one I still remember is Summer of Fear by Lois Duncan.  It was my first ‘age appropriate’ horror novel – I think I was 8-years-old at the time.

What was the most recent book you added to the bookshelf?
The Wangs vs. the World by Jade Chang – I heard it’s an entertaining read about a dysfunctional family, which is something everyone can identify…

New Release: A Desolate Hour by Mae Clair #KensingtonMystery #Mothman #RRBC #TuesdayBookBlog

Happy Release Day to Mae Clair! I’ve had this final book in The Point Pleasant Series pre-ordered for months – can’t wait to dive into it, but hate saying goodbye to these characters.

From the Pen of Mae Clair

I’m celebrating a book birthday today and hope you’ll join me! A Desolate Hour, the final novel in my Point Pleasant series, is finally available for purchase. I’m wrapping up all the plot threads begun in the first two novels, A Thousand Yesteryears and A Cold Tomorrow. Caden Flynn and all my regular characters are back, along with a few new ones. The Mothman, of course, is front and center.

When I set out to write the Point Pleasant series, I envisioned the mystery relating to the origins of the Mothman spanning all three books. But I also wanted each book to focus on an aspect of Point Pleasant folklore in addition to my favorite cryptid.

In book one, A Thousand Yesteryears, I shared the history of the Silver Bridge tragedy. Book two, A Cold Tomorrow, saw the introduction of UFOs and Men in Black. The final…
