Barbara Meyers, Author – July 2013 Newsletter

Did I miss June? There must have been nothing newsworthy to report. My Guilt Trip took up the first week in June. You can read my four-part series about that by simply looking at my previous blog posts. Upon my return home, I work work work the day job. No…

Barbara Meyers, Author – April 2013 Newsletter

No, no, it can’t be April already, can it?  The days zip by so fast I am constantly checking the calendar for the correct date.  Writing news?  Efforts for THE FIRST TIME AGAIN shift into marketing/publicizing.  The local newspaper features local writers, at least a cover and publication information, so…

Barbara Meyers, Author – February 2013 Newsletter

Time is flying by if it’s time for another “news” letter. Where did the first month of the year go? As I write this, it is January 22nd which is my mother’s 82nd birthday. I sent her a card and a Valentine cookie and some extra thick socks. I read…

My Alter Ego

An alter ego is a second self, believed to be distinct from a person’s normal or original personality. The term was coined in the early nineteenth century when dissociative identity disorder was first described by psychologists. A person with an alter ego is said to lead a double life. In…

Picky Reader – 26

Roadside Crosses by Jeffery Deaver. (Paperback) Took me a while to get into this, but when I did, I was in all the way. Lots of unexpected twists and turns. Haven’t read much straight suspense lately so it was a good pick. Forbidden Magic by Jo Beverley. (Trade paperback) Jo…

Addiction to The Forbidden Bean

What if you had an addiction to a substance for which there was no rehab? What if you couldn’t tell anyone about your addiction? In Tee Rutledge I may have created the ideal fictional addict, but there are many correlations to real life addiction. First of all, she has no…

Picky Reader – 25

Flirting in Cars by Alisa Kwitney. Sort of a women’s fiction/romance story. I liked it.
Glitter Baby by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I thought I’d read everything of hers, but I must have missed this one. True to form, SEP never disappoints her readers.
Violet by Design by Melissa Walker. I don’t normally read young adult fiction. This was a pretty good book, although if young adults tend to annoy you, don’t bother. The character of Violet is full of contradictions and waffles between being wise and immature. But that is the nature of young women her age.
A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolff. I enjoyed this book. It has a lot parallels in it and connections made from past to present through the main character who owns a vintage clothing shop. She heals her own emotional wounds by helping a dying woman put her past to rest.
Fools Paradise by Jennifer Stevenson. I read this on my Kindle. It is a laugh-out-loud romantic comedy about stagehands and union infighting. There is one bedroom scene in particular which I found wildly hysterical. Fun and entertaining.
Picky Reader - 25 Here is another book I’m recommending. Scattered Moments. I am still working on a good blurb for it. (Don’t get me started on the angst of writing effective blurbs.) What’s a married woman to do when she meets her soulmate thirteen years too late? Sure there’s lots more to the book than that, a frenemy with her own agenda and a hidden camera, a husband she doesn’t know as well as she thinks she does, and vows she made to herself long ago which she now must re-examine. Scattered Moments is available for 99 cents on Amazon.com and bn.com right now. P.S. I would have posted this blog much earlier if WordPress wasn’t being a pain and not letting me upload my gorgeous cover. I still don’t know how I did it!

Drinking Alone

You’d think I’d be used to it by now.  If you follow me anywhere, Twitter, Facebook, etc., you are already aware of my white zin addiction.  It’s sad but true.  The cheaper the better and I drink it over ice.  Anyone shuddering out there, yet?  Sutter Home is okay, but I…
