On the 9th Day of Christmas...

On the 9th day of Christmas my readers said to me
praise the best titles you couldn’t refuse...

Many things make me look, but just because I look doesn’t guarantee it’s going to be a good book.

These were the books that caught my attention solely based on the title and turned out to be just good on the inside, as the outside.

A Boy From Down East by Larry B. Gray
Cats, Scarves and Liars by Kathryn White
Easy Like Sunday Mourning by Jennie Marts
Grumpy Old Menopause by Carol Wyer
She Likes It Rough by G.V.R. Corcillo
Ugly to Start With by John Michael Cummings
Who Owns America’s Past? by Robert C. Post

Other books read in previous years that caught my attention by the title... and ended up being one of my many favorites...

Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker by Marla Martenson
How to Be Black by Baratunde Thurston
Life On the Color Line: The True Story of a White Boy Who Discovered He Was Black by Gregory Howard Williams
Out of Captivity: Surviving 1,967 Days in the Colombian Jungle by Marc Gonsalves
Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern
Something's Wrong with Your Scale by Van Whitfield
The Black Russian by Vladimir Alexandrov
The Broke Diaries: The Completely True and Hilarious Misadventures of a Good Girl Gone Broke by Angela Nissel
The Life and Laughs of an at Home Mom: A Humorous Look at the Daily Joys of a Wife and Mom by Chris Liefer
You Ain't Got No Easter Clothes: A Memoir by Laura Love

I love it when I select something based on what first meets the eye, to find out my eyes have good instincts.

Seasons Greetings to All.

Genuine Women Rock!

Funny thing about genuine women is they rarely say much when first meeting one. Oh, she’ll look me up and down, sizing me up I’m guessing, taking in most of what she thinks she sees before ever imparting any real piece of her mind. Gossip is just not her thing; mines neither, which is why when she unleashes one of them pearls of wisdom, Baby Look Out, I know this is a Woman Who Rocks!
Genuine Women are as Compassionate as Passionate

Doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes, do wrong, be wrong, get mad and have those bad days. We all have our hard days, ugly ways. Name a human who doesn't. And still, turning the dial back upbeat, I know one-hundred-ten percent a genuine woman’s words are not cheap.

A Toast to the Writing Resolution Blog Hop Ball

I've been waiting to attend this ball all year, and now here it is…the perfect spot to slip in another Top Ten list, and call it my writing resolutions.
Before …oh boy…I get started, please know that Meg Waite-Clayton at 1stbooks is hosting the blogger ball. All the rules can be found (and followed) by clicking the icon pic in my caption, which also should be your caption as well. But before you get to clicking, here are my writing resolutions going into the New Year.

SHEWRITES Blogger's Ball #7 – YipYip HOORaY!!!

I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been…
