Book Review: Rio Bonito by Preston Lewis

Welcome back to another review with Lone Star Lit! The folks who love to highlight my fellow Texas authors and/or Texas-based stories. I've had a blast discovering new authors and books the past two years that I wouldn't have likely read, otherwise. As an author, and avid reader, I'm always looking to expand my literary...

Guest Author DiAnn Mills for Trace of Doubt

Happy Thursday, friends! Despite this past crazy year and half, I can honestly say one of my greatest enduring comforts has been books. No matter how chaotic, or awful, or overwhelming life can feel at times, I have found escape in the worlds and characters my fellow authors create. One of the reasons I decided to...

Book Review: Under the Bayou Moon

Reading Under the Bayou Moon was something of a revelation for me. Having grown up visiting relatives close to the Louisiana border, I often heard my family talk about Cajuns.

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ Lessons in Writing

It's been a while since I wrote about writing. Probably because I've had something of a love/hate relationship with my passion for the past year.

If I want to get anything accomplished in any of my current projects, it needs to become habit.

Tuesday Teaser: Blackbriar Cove

It wasn’t as though Jo had forgotten who and what they were. But life as a human had been easier in so many ways. Faye never quite let her forget, and the life their parents presented for Amie’s sake had been false.

The spell wouldn’t last much longer, because Faye was barely under control, and Jo was weakening.

Happy 100th Birthday to Us, Grandma!

I normally shy away from posting things online that I consider "too personal." But at the same time, I also believe in sharing some of life's difficulties with you. Because I know I'm not the only one who goes through things like this, and maybe hearing my voice will help those of you who have or are going through similar situations as well.
