The big disadvantage of being blind

Here it is. This past Saturday afternoon, a warm day, sunny and bright, I decided to eat my lunch outside. While settled in a lounge chair, safe inside the huge screen that surrounds our swimming pool, munching on a crisp salad, I listened to birds’ high-pitched melodic songs while a soft breeze played with my hair. When suddenly, a muffled squeal with a loud thud startled me. But it was the scratching that sent a chill up my spine A zillion options zipped through my head—a yucky snake, a… Continue

Wordpress plugin of the moment: Wordbook for your Facebook

I absolutely love this plugin. It's called Wordbook.

This plugin allows you to cross-post your blog posts to your Facebook Mini-Feed. Your Facebook profile will also show your most recent blog posts.

Up till now, my blog entries would show up as a note inside FB but wouldn't necessarily show up as part of the mini-feed. So I lose a few eyeballs. But with this showing up on my mini-feed, I will… Continue

My "Checkmate" Virtual Book Tour

At 7:21pm on April 28th, 2008, Jean Hackensmith said…

Sorry I haven't posted for so long. I've been busy writing and editing "Checkmate" and am so happy to say it is finally DONE and will be released May 1. "Checkmate" is the beginning of my "break" from the romance genre. It is classified as a "romantic thriller," but is actually more thriller than romance. My family and friends actually laugh when I say there isn't even one love scene in the entire book! (I'm known for my steamy love… Continue

That Charming, Plaguey Justin

When planning my novels I live on ‘Cloud Nine’ and give a lot of thought to my characters. (Of course, although, a lot of hard work lies ahead this part is nothing but fun.)

My new hero, Justin, is intrusive. He won't go away. He is so demanding that when thinking of him I nearly burned the spaghetti sauce.

Justin’s partner to be is taking shape in my mind - both her characteristics and physical appearance.

Oh dear, amongst other things, Justin wants me to go on… Continue

Rice pudding anybody?

While visiting with friends, and after delighting in a plate of homemade spaghetti, our conversation turned to rice. You know...the rice shortage. Some grocery stores already ration the amount sold. The panic button pressed and its sound spread through the media.

Rice shortage, controversial issues re election candidates, stock market going through concerning fluctuation, real estate industry facing dark times, the war.

What a perfect playground for the enemy. Doesn't he… Continue

My Most Guarded Possession

I just got a new computer; and you'd think I'd be cheering with gratitude. Instead, I’m crawling up the learning curve, sweating through every step, panting as frustration reaches heights that cannot be measured.

The problem is that my screen reader operates with specific key commands - which worked beautifully with my previous operating system. Those same key commands instead of allowing me to navigate through different applications now spark a most annoying "ding"… Continue

An Awsome Review!

American author Barbara Watkins is the latest reader of the book to provide a customer review, the following being the gist of the review which she has submitted to retailer Barnes & Noble for inclusion on their website.

On Writing, Finally

3. Stop, look, and listen. And smell and taste while you’re at it. Books are a wonderful way to convey your ideas, but if you want to add texture and substance, you have to use all your senses. It’s not enough to say you ate delicious Buffalo chicken wings, though to be honest that should be enough. From what I understand, there are a few people that have never eaten Buffalo wings before. For those people, you can tell them about the steam rising off the plate of red-sauced chicken parts, awash… Continue

If you read my previous post...

If you read my previous post, you learned the details of an experience about a snake.

A reader brought up the point that this scenario could not have taken place because of strict Air Traffic violations/security/ strict laws about carry-on’s. And when clarifying this, my friend writes: “P. S. This story happened in the ‘70s and quarantine had been enforced after my friend was able to bring his "pets" home.”

Isn’t that like life? Rules change, different measures are taken… Continue
