Working on my book
Listening to the birds sing
Nice morning routine

“I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I don’t talk about this side of my life or my blog for that matter, but I actually have covers on here to sell. I am only offering them up for ten dollars, not a professional, just trying to help people get their start in the Independent Business. I wish someone would have had cheaper covers for me when I was starting out. Hopefully, I can help out a few people and they won’t have to put in a ton of money up front. Sometimes, writing as an Independent Author isn’t for everyone. I myself am about to take a break in order to pursue Traditional Publishing (my dream and goal). Anyway, above and below are two of my covers and this link will send you to the rest of them: awrenfro.com/covers-for-sale/. Thanks for letting me rant and sale for a bit. Have a great day.
“I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and new.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relations.”
“Thanksgiving is the holiday that encompasses all others. All of them, from Martin Luther King Day to Arbor Day to Christmas to Valentine’s Day, are in one way or another about being thankful.”
Jonathan Safran Foer
“Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence.”
“He lives down in a ribcage in the dry leaves of a heart.”
“Invitation to Dance – It’s a Dance. And sometimes they turn the lights off in this ballroom. But we’ll dance anyway, you and I. Even in the Dark. Especially in the Dark. May I have the pleasure?”
“Despite my ghoulish reputation, I really have the heart of a small boy. I keep it in a jar on my desk.”
“[Horror fiction] shows us that the control we believe we have is purely illusory, and that every moment we teeter on chaos and oblivion.”
Dragging out of bed
Re-writing time once again
Filled with dread and hope
“I use social media not to ask new people to like my stuff.
I use social media to connect with that one reader who likes my stuff.”
This was a book I didn’t mean to own. I asked for the rest of The Vampire Chronicles series for Christmas a few years ago and I wound up getting this one as well. I am glad I did. This was a great read from start to finish. I am always hesitant to read new books by Anne because she has been hit or miss, but this one is well worth the time. I think Prince Lestat wasn’t as grand as the others in the series because she has moved on from writing about those kinds of stories. You can tell by reading Angel Time that she is passionate again about a certain kind of subject matter. Believe me, it shows. I am now curious about the others in this series. I might have to check them out.
I also read these three short story collections recently and didn’t write a review for them. I thought I would give them a nod so you can check them out for yourself.
Of the three I read, this one was my favorite. Unique and different with very original stories. There isn’t a bad one in this collection.
Most of these stories were amazing, King at his best, and a few even reminded me of the old King back when he wrote “It” and “The Stand.” There were also a few that I wouldn’t read again and one long poem that I read purely because it was King. If it had been anyone else I would have skipped it. If you like King (like me) then this is a must read. Even when he is off he is still great at what he does.
This is another great collection of short stories. It is a quick read, but there are some really good ones in here. I would recommend it, especially for the upcoming Halloween season.
