Victoria Dougherty: A Cold War Princess with the Sultan’s Slippers – @VicDougherty

Posted by on Nov 13, 2013 in ASMSG, Authors, Cabin Cooking, Interviews & Interviews with Recipes, Photos | 2 comments

I have had this interview in my save for an AWESOME DAY for quite some time. Considering this week the Cold War is all over the news (Veteran’s Day and more) I decided today was the AWESOME DAY! I want to welcome one of the sweetest most awesome, fun, festive, exciting, supportive, feel good human beings and authors I have met this year…The original Cold War Princess, Victoria Dougherty

cold-war-princess

She is pretty fabulous, and she has a very interesting personal story and is well versed at weaving very amazing tales! Welcome Victoria! Sit down, have a cup of coffee and let’s show these folks just how awesome you are!

Oh wait, I really want to stress going and liking her page and trolling through her photos. She posts black and whites and often with some awesome descriptions, for example one of my favorites (we both love noir so I giggled a lot at this)

Cafe Noir: Take sip. Inhale deeply on cigarette. Keep your eye on the guy in the raincoat who keeps looking at you over his newspaper.

CG – Introduce yourself to the captive audience that you now have before you. (As in tell us something NOT in your bio, give us a dirty little secret not having or having to do with your writing)

If you’ve read my blog, you know I come from the ultimate Cold War family – daring escapes, backyard firing squads, Communist snitches, bowlfuls of goulash, gargoyles, spies, killers and dangerous pursuits.  All of these are part of my recent family history and go a long way in explaining why I write Cold War thrillers.

I also love to drink rye whiskey, will eat anything with butter and cream as ingredients, and have an illogically happy marriage.  I wrote erotica when it wasn’t cool to do so.  I miss Christopher Hitchens every day.  And I’m a devout Catholic.  None of these facts feel contradictory to me.

She is also into black and white photography, goes with the noir soul (as mentioned about) here are a few examples from her site. One is of a bone church which really does exist.

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 with the prompt of “LIGHT” since summer is almost here (Yes this could work with romance, mystery, humour, textbooks on quantum physics.. own it, title it and GO!)

YA! Although I probably have a pretty sick romance in me.

Blown away with “Fiery Edge of Steel by @Archer_Jill #review

Posted by on Nov 12, 2013 in Authors, Books, Reviews | 1 comment

I was going to do a series review but after realizing I never posted a review of the first one and since the cover reveal just launched I needed to get this up to you! I received these books so I could get prepped for a radio interview with the author (see below) and it was one of those gifts that just kept giving! I also received the paperbacks from the publisher and they are on my prized shelf because I am definitely a fan of Ms. Archer’s writing and world-building!

#AdamsOnGlee wearing #SteampunkGoggles & the #Gleeks are Excited

Posted by on Nov 7, 2013 in Entertainment, Music, News, Promotions, Steampunk | 3 comments

keep-calm-and-gleek-out-19I am not going to admit that I am a Glee fan. Nope… because that would be disrespectful to all the hardcore fans out here, the true fangirls and fanboys (like my son Nathan and his partner Alex). But I can say I am a budding fangirl, apparently called baby Gleek. I love musicals, (yes Nathan you get it from mom, not just the gay gene) and I knew once I started watching this I would be hooked, big time. I have been watching it this season and have been going nuts because I wanted to see this next episode so bad… but it took a pause and I lost focus. They left us all hanging and ………..
