Ted volunteered for the mission because, after all, it was just a routine trip to Mars. What could possibly go wrong?
In the deepest, darkest reaches of space, one must fill the vacuum, the void, the emptiness. Yet do we humans have the "psychological stuff" for deep space travel? If not, we may end up like Ted.

Today’s Weekly Shorts features Lane Diamond who is the author of the one book that I had to stop reading because it triggered my PTSD. What does this say about him? He is a damn fine writer. In fact, a year later I plan on finishing the book I think I can handle it now. He has a lovely way of being able to draw you in to the story and he certainly did so with this short. Take a chance,
Verses of Athine

Take what you know about mythology and throw it out the window...
Do you have any idea what Zeus, Odin, Pandora's Box, Atlantis, Machu Picchu, Hera, Nike, Dragons, Vlad, Clones*, and Vampires have in common? Athine does!
The Daughter of Ares Chronicles follows Athine as she uncovers the secrets of her destiny while interacting with key figures from many mythologies. Athine is not your ordinary immortal born goddess. Learn of her mysterious origins, learn why Zeus hates her so much, find out where vampires come from, and learn what really happened to the dragons.
Contains books 1-4 at one incredible price! This allows you to catch up on all the action in preparation for the next book Cursed Bloods (Winter 2014).
*Clones-for a full understanding of this also pick up The Secret of Genetic Corp X.
Today I welcome someone whom I have worked with before and today I am thrilled to be just another stop on her virtual book tour with Bewitching VBT. She took the bait and dove in with all ten dirty fingernails – keep reading – I had a lot of fun with this one. Usually I get to play with the food, but this time I got to play with a huge casting call! For someone who claims she stinks at casting, she knows how to pick them! Thanks for being on at the Cabin today, Shannon! Maple Bacon Praline cookie? *smiling* sit a spell and enjoy a marvelous Alaskan afternoon while your fans and new readers find out even more about you!

CG – Is there a genre, other than the one you currently write in, that you wish you could break into? (If you want you can – I would love it if you did – a max flash fiction of no more that 500 words with the prompt of “LIGHT” since summer is here (Yes this could work with romance, mystery, humour, textbooks on quantum physics.. own it, title it and GO!)
I’d like to break into all of them. :)
We interrupt your Fourth-Wall Friday to bring you a fresh new find!
I have had one hell of a week, on top of fighting the regular ol’ flu with the upset tummy and the fever which has hovered between 101-103 for three days, launching a new release, dealing with a psychotic squirrel who just won’t stop his partying at 4 AM and the fact I am not getting to bed on Alaskan time but Australia time, I am beat. So when I woke up this morning and checked my 4K+ messages and prayed the author had gotten back to me after his *coughing* reminder and
I, A.B. Shepherd, am a stowaway.
Did you know I can turn invisible at will? Of course I can. I can make you invisible too. Or Cass, or Rhys. Anyone. No, I’m not a magician. I am an author. I can do anything. All I have to do is write it, and it magically becomes truth.
In the dark of night, on that cold, wet beach, I watched, that terrible, terrifying scene unfold. I knew what was coming, but was powerless to stop it. Yes, I did just say I

A great new book that I’m adding straight into my April mystery and crime reads.
I haven’t read too many mysteries this month, so I was thrilled to have this become an excellent choice in a tour book. I’ve been stuck in horror and thrillers and right now I’m actually reading this hilarious urban fantasy. January Justice is a straight up mystery crime thriller full of some really neat and interesting characters and it was kind of this trio of amazing characters and I really am
Hot Dragons/men/brothers, Explicit Sex, Sex in Water, Magic.. Sex.. (this review is intended for 18+, (no one under that age should be caught close to the computer while reading) and a giveaway following reviewSo ya…. this was my warning provided by the synopsis:
Product Warnings: This novel contains explicit sex, sex in water, four super-hot dragon brothers, and a curse born from magical power that has left them wondering who they are all their lives.
OH BOY oh ya, OK yes… but…Let’s break this down for you, I wanted to really love this book but in the end I liked it, but I did not love it. It was …

Just when you thought it was safe to have a birthday…I got this text message last night, it was a ninja like invite from an unknown number. Like one of those Rave invites or Friday night shows you see papered the day of all over downtown PDX for some show at some random local. All it said was, “Charles Coylott – good blogging fodder – 9/7/2012 – 2 AM.” Curious, I clicked

I finished this book a bit ago and have been sitting on the review for no real reason, other than I think I like having Jessica Lay harass me constantly about posting my review since she recommended it to me. By the way, she really has some amazing recommendations and she loves zombies almost as much as I do. Since I consider this one of my “Best Of 2012″ I finally finished my review.
I am kicking back today with a Cabin Goddess Bacon Bloody Mary, a bag of Lindt Truffles & the ManBeast tethered to his gaming console to give me time to read in peace. I recently featured three great ladies in their Dog Days of Summer Sale and featured both Ann Charles, Terri Giuliano Long as well as Rachel Thompson, (to follow). I had a blast on the radio show with them and really am glad I know these three great ladies.
*swirling my drink with a green bean wrapped in crisp bacon* I ended up getting a lovely flu and decided that vodka, bacon and a nice plateful of home-fries will be the cure that ails me this morning. Later I will be found hiding with my Kindle giggling as I spend at least an hour reading selections from The Mancode: Exposed while sitting on my pity pot!
This is one of those great books you can pick up and turn to a page and just start reading. It is full of a great collection of essays and is one I think we all need to have in our arsenal! I keep coming across things that make me laugh so hard enough I start snorting, and if anyone has talked to me live, once I start snorting there is no stopping me! SO check out my post HERE and grab Rachel’s book or any and all of the THREE books by THREE fabulous ladies. You may have missed the sale, but that does not mean I won’t be yodeling from the top of the mountain tops to state “BUY THESE BOOKS!”
(Make sure you check out The Indie Exchanges Blog Talk Radio SHOW SPECIAL & Spreecast on Rachel’s channel. OMG it was the Charlies Angels on Literary Crack for the WIN! I will embed the shows below but now? Let’s talk about snark!)
