Caught Book Tour Spotlight

About Caught A collection of short stories, literary sketches and vignettes each capturing a moment in the life of someone a lot like you. Each story delves into human themes: expectation, desire, hope, loss, fear, joy, peace, suffering, redemption. The narrative is filled with subtle irony, humour and touching observations. The stories highlight our era of increasing social disconnection, in which technology is replacing intimacy and life occurs at a pace that challenges people’s ability to stop, observe and interpret their own existence and its relationship with those around them. It highlights the everyday moment and provides nourishment for the harried soul. The overriding message in Caught is: that any moment in every life can be viewed as worthy of treasuring. Whether that moment is filled with despair or joy; they provide entertaining relief and nourishing benefits. Read a Sample   Facebook   Website   Twitter   Follow the Author’s Tour   Amazon

Murder in the Worst Degree Marilyn M

Seven Random Things about Murder in the Worst Degree

I had the title before I knew what the plot was going to be. A friend said, “Why don’t you call your next Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery, Murder in the Worst Degree?” I thought that was a terrific title. Of course when I sat down to write the book, I had no idea where I was going with it. I had plenty of ongoing minor plots with the characters who appear in every book, but I had to come up with a murder that would qualify for being in the worst degree. I really wasn’t sure if I’d done that until I got near the end.    Because my series is based on the men and women in the police department, there must be more than one crime. Besides the murder, there’s also a rapist on the loose, and a couple of burglaries. And of course, you’ll also learn about

You Have How Many Christmas Trees?

A Christmas Kindness
Christmas is such a magical time of year. What's your favorite part about the season? You Have How Many Christmas Trees? By C. C. Gevry   A Christmas Kindness When someone asks me what my favorite part of the Christmas season is, I easily admit spending time with my family. People are busy, and our family is no exception. So, taking time around the holidays to catch up with everyone is a wonderful thing. But what I really love most is decorating. At one point, I had as many as 10 Christmas trees here. Most of them have themes: snowmen, collectible ornaments, handmade ornaments, angels, toys, and snowflakes and icicles. Some are fiber optic. Our girls each have a tree for their bedrooms: one pink, one purple. Decorating begins the week before Thanksgiving. My goal is to have the house ready for when family arrives on

The Lens of Grace by Kim Hilton Author of Closet Words

Closet Words Book Tour
Closet Words Book Tour The eyes are windows to the soul.  As fast as a blink moistens and changes the lens, I see pain quickly hide within her emerald eyes. I gaze deep, searching - knowing for a moment I had seen the true soul.

One who has struggled with forgiveness; the one who judges quickly from all her lens has focused
