During all of October, we’ll post teasers for the stories, interviews of the authors and blog posts. Find them all on Kallysten’s blog, along with a FAQ, and of course the link where you can donate and help this worthy cause.

 

As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last year, the first Shades of Pink event raised over $10.000 through more than 1300 donations!

For our second year, 22 authors have allied for 1 cause: fundraising for research. Their gift to everyone who makes a donation? A romance anthology (ebook) titled Shades of Pink (volume 2), totaling almost 150.000 words / about 400 pages as a PDF.

The suggested donation is $5. Funds are raised via Stayclassy.org and all proceeds go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Readers can also donate to the charity organization of their choice (with a focus on breast cancer) and email their receipt to receive their copy of the anthology in either PDF, ePub or mobi (kindle).

The Teatime Author Interview…with R M Ridley… hey that’s me!

A New Blog!

Posted: September 17, 2014 in MIscellaneous, Publishing, Writing

My beta reader has started her own blog!

She also is the beta reader for a number of other authors of all different types of genre, so I’m sure she’ll have plenty to write about if your interested in books… and I’m sure you can get her to talk about fly fishing too if you ask.

I expect this will be a fun blog to follow so head on over and check it out.

BookNerd’s Sneak Peek

It’s just me now

-for the whole week

-all alone

-in this house

-in the middle of nowhere

-with a hell of a lot of animals!

I managed to get up somewhere between my usual waking hour and my wife usual waking hour. So the animals were eager to get out of the Barn and Coop, but not frustrated and irate – a delicate balance.

I hope that there is no excitement, no noteworthy moments, and no struggles this week. A nice, boring, repetitive, one day pretty much just like the ‘nothing to write home about’ one before.

I have enough on my plate – I don’t need more. I don’t like surprises, keep your exploding cake, or stripper coming out of a candle to yourself.

I want to relax at my desk, get work done, and let the days slip, slide by.

 

Here is a link to a blog that is debunking the newest Vaping ‘Health Hazard’ that Health Canada is spewing out as reasons to stop people from using this product to quit smoking. Please read, inform yourself of the facts, and then share this. I’m not even against smokers – many of my friends smoke and I never give them any grief – I am against these lies and scare tactics. I am against the public being told what are half truths, at best, to swing those not associated with issue into crying ‘Danger Danger’ for no real, honest reason.

Please just read so you can know all sides to the issue
