Celebrate Launch Day with a Giveaway

Five Magic Spindles officially gets released today!  If you preordered your copy, either as an e-book or paperback, you might have already started reading by now, as I've heard that the e-books got delivered to people's Kindles last night, and I know the paperbacks started arriving at people's houses earlier this week.  However, today is the "official" release date, and to celebrate that, I am giving away five metal bookmarks that I made myself, each inspired by the stories in this collection.
 

You can enter this giveaway on either of my blogs (Hamlette's Soliloquy and The Edge of the Precipice) or my Facebook author page

Getting to Know the Spindle Authors


Over the past four weeks, I have posted short interviews with each of the other Five Magic Spindles authors on my main blog, Hamlette's Soliloquy.  If you'd like to get to know them better too, here are links to all the interviews:





And if you'd like to read a sneak peek paragraph out of my story, I just posted one here on my book blog, The Edge of the Precipice.

Femnista May/June 2016


I wrote about one of my favorite John Wayne movies, Angel and the Badman (1947), for this latest issue of Femnista.  I called the article "Vengeance or Love," and in it I focused on the difficulties a gunman has when he falls in love with a pacifist Quaker, and what it would take for them to be together.  You can read it online here, or download it as a PDF file here.  I hope you enjoy it!

If you've never watched Angel and the Badman, it's available for free here on YouTube, thanks to the Paramount Vault.

The latest issue of Femnista is out now!  You can read it online here, or download it as a PDF file here.  In it, I've reviewed the film One Night with the King (2006), which retells the Biblical story of Esther.
