Fall means getting around

All summer I dally. Swim, smell the flowers, watch the butterflies dart from blossom to blossom, catch the stars and moon at their most beautiful. No city lights around here to dim them, they shine so bright I can see my way around the yard. But the snakes crawl at night, so be careful there, too. In my head, words I should put on paper come to life. On hot summer afternoons the crystal clear water of the pool beckons, as do the shouts of the family splashing. I join them.

Because it's… Continue

Vampire Trivia!

Thinking of vacationing down south? Well, keep an eye out for a rare mother/child vampire team! The Cihuateteo likes to keep her work close to home, so a woman who dies in childbirth wanders the night as a vampire with her

undead child close at hand, attacking children.

Aside from drinking the victim's blood the Cihuateteo also feeds on the lifeforce of their victim; sucking on the fear and panic their presence creates. Many times a…

Day 28 of VBT: read chapter 3 of Whale Song by Cheryl Kaye Tardif

For the first time, my publisher has allowed me to give you a sneak peek of chapter 3 of my bestselling novel Whale Song, a novel that author Debra Purdy-Kong called "unusual", "elegantly written" and "heartbreaking".

Chapter three

Authors of the New Millennium Renaissance

In a previous blog, I noted that I had created two groups here at Book Marketing Network. I only wrote, however, about one of them: Poets and Angels. The second is called New Millennium Renaissance, and it is devoted to identifying the themes, subject matter, imagery, lexicons, ideologies, and voices that comprise modern…

I Love Writing. No Bones About It!

Here is a sample of a poem I wrote.

She Danced

by Pier Marie Tyler

Inspired by my friends, R&B Pratcher who sent me a pic of

The Black Swan Dance. While looking at the pic and

listening to Dozie's "Gabriel's Lounge", this is what came to me.

She danced on the floor of water

Her feet told a story,

Wrapped in love

She danced like an angel

With swans by her side, synchronously.

The beat led her around…

Time is Life!

Hopes and Dreams

Greetings Book Marketing Network,

A Ringing Endorsement

It's not often one gets to blow his own horn, but I just received the most amazing letter from a grief counselor. I hope you don't mind me sharing it with you.

Dear Lynn,

I just wanted to tell you how much I love the book! Angel's Dance is part of my one-on-one bereavement support practice as well as my grief groups.
