My favorite pup

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

dog-009

Dear Santa, as the season’s here

And just to keep in touch

I thought I’d write you every day…

I’m after nothing…much.

dog-004

I’ve been a good girl all the year,

Or if not, I forget,

Or maybe she just didn’t see…

Or hasn’t caught me yet.

dog-011

I’ve tried to help with household chores,

I’ve laundered all my balls,

I’ve chased the pigeons from the shed

And spiders from the walls.

dog-013

I’ve done the food disposal job;

The stuff she left, I ate…

(Although she’d left it in the fridge

And not upon my plate.)

birddoggled

I’ve learned I shouldn’t bark at cows

Unless they come too near…

(Though any cat that trespasses

Will flee in mortal fear.)

dog-006

And yes, I know, that cupboard thing,

I wasn’t going in

To help myself to treats and stuff

‘Cause that would be a sin…

dog-001

So Santa, if you wouldn’t mind,

The baubles on the…

Danny’s Dilemma

Another adventure of one of my favorite dogs (who also happens to own one of my favorite authors).

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Danny Happy
To run or not to run, that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them? . . . to paraphrase Billy Shakespeare.

Howdy, folks. It’s me, Danny the Dog. I live on a boat with my human, Andrew. Today, I’m here to speak about outrageous fortune. And the outrageous fortune of which I speak is the insidious leash he makes me wear. I mean . . . really . . . just because I’ve run away a few times, he thinks I can’t be trusted. I’m a big boy—I’m almost fourteen years old! I can go out catting (excuse the expression) around at night and still make my way home all by myself.

So here’s my problem. Andrew doesn’t use a regular leash like any sane…

Yellow Hair by Andrew Joyce @huckfinn76 #bookreview #historicalfiction #POTLReads

This was indeed a great book

POTL: All Things Books, Reading and Publishing

yellow-hair

Title: Yellow Hair

Author: Andrew Joyce

Genre: Historical Fiction, Literary Fiction

Book Blurb:

Yellow Hair documents the injustices done to the Sioux Nation from their first treaty with the United States in 1805 through Wounded Knee in 1890. Every death, murder, battle, and outrage written about actually took place. The historical figures that play a role in this fact-based tale of fiction were real people and the author uses their real names. Yellow Hair is an epic tale of adventure, family, love, and hate that spans most of the 19th century. This is American history.

My Review:

I’m a big fan of historical fiction. Why? I get to experience history and when it’s done right, reading it changes me as a person and I see the world in a whole new light. I’m fairly familiar with the atrocities foisted upon the Sioux Nation in the 19th century through my…

Legends of Windemere

Return to Windemere in Charms of the Feykin!

Cover Art by Jason Pedersen Cover Art by Jason Pedersen

To make a champion fall, one must wound their very soul.

Nyx is leading the charge to rescue Delvin and Sari, who have gone missing in the southern jungles of Windemere. Battling through the local predators, the champions are surprised when they reunite in the Feykin city of Rhundar. Instead of captives, the missing heroes have become the city’s rulers and are on the verge of starting a war with those that want to exterminate their new followers. Even with such a noble cause, Delvin and Sari have changed into brutal warlords that may kill each other and their friends long before they step onto the battlefield.

Introducing an Exciting New Author

Cute children’s story

Author Don Massenzio

I couldn’t be more proud this morning to introduce a new children’s book author.

My daughter, Lillie, has published her first book on Amazon. Her book is called The Scary Tower of Doom, and it’s a children’s book that was written completely by her. We found a great illustrator and now the book is live on Amazon on the kindle and will be out in hard copy later this week.

cover2Here is a blurb about the book:

A princess, a prince, a witch and a dragon; This story by Lillie Massenzio has it all. The best thing is, it’s a story for kids that was written by one. Will the princess and her friends be rescued? Look inside to find out.
