    Three years later and where I’m At with Writing #ROW80

    Four years ago today I never once had it enter my mind that I was going to have written four going on five books. My first book – Friends of Choice – was just a pipe dream. Now I am able to say I am closing in on the first draft of Along Came Neil. I have a minimum of 14k words to go. I never even thought back then that I would consider writing a romance. My book, Friends of Choice, it was written for me. I had fears living deep down inside me that needed to come out. This book banged around in my mind after my daughter left home…

    Great Grandma got a Kindle

    This year I found the perfect Christmas gift for my mom. You see, she had been having trouble reading for the past few years. She has tried using reading glasses. In fact she even has bifocals, but they really don’t help her when it comes to reading. She is in her mid-70s. So I got her a Kindle. No, not a Fire, not a Touch, and not a Keyboard. It is just the simple plain Jane version. At first I was not sure she was going to like it. She has never really been much into electronics.

    Linda and Linda #Book-signing in Stereo

    Announcing… Linda Kepner and Linda Nelson will be visiting The Toadstool Bookshop in Peterborough, NH on October 6, 2012 to discuss and sign their newly released books.

    The Board Game of Death The Rest of Chapter ~ 2

    The Board Game of Death The Rest of Chapter ~ 2 “Who did you get this from anyways?” Jordan asked. “Mrs. Krendall, she said it was her son’s. He must have moved or something. I haven’t seen him in a while. In fact he has not been around since Carley died.” “Oh, Brian?” Jordan held the necklace closer to her face for further inspection. “Yeah…I haven’t seen him around either. Didn’t know he was into this sort of stuff.” She then set it down on the game board. “Isn’t he one of Lucas’s friends?” Shawna asked. “Yeah…I think he is.” Alexus shifted herself, crossing her legs in front of her,…

    The Board Game of Death Chapter ~ 2 ~ continued

    Alexus had to walk around the garage to get to the barn. Tall grass grew in the field behind the house. Cows had not grazed here in years. Her grandparents were the last ones to keep cows. The barn was now only used for storage.Inside the barn, Shawna had set them up in the upper loft. The barn had three stories. The ground level held an antique car, a mustang to be exact and an old tractor. The second level was where things were kept that would not fit in their attic.There was a set of stairs leading up to the second level. After that there was nothing but an…
