Whoohooo – It’s Party Time!!

by Tawny I’m so ready to celebrate the holidays!! I love this time of year. All of it- the baking, the crafts, the gift wrapping, the pretty lights and the fabulous music. I’m a sucker for a holiday movie and a sap over anything wrapped by a kid. I adore the whispered secrets and have been known to get teary eyed over watching my kids decorating cookies with my husband’s questionable help. And this year, I’m celebrating a little bit extra. I am so excited to have a holiday story out, it’s like that extra sparkle of tinsel on the

A VERY SIMPLE CRIME

by KJ Howe I had the pleasure of reading a fabulous book this month, A VERY SIMPLE CRIME by Grant Jerkins. Grant explores a few hot topics, including mental illness in a marriage, extreme sibling rivalry, and just how far people will go to get what they desire. I was compelled to reach out to Grant, hoping that he would join us in the lair and share some of his thoughts about these fascinating facets of his novel and I’m thrilled he agreed. Please welcome talented author Grant Jerkins!!! Thank you all for the opportunity to play a small role

Been Experimenting Again

by Suzanne We just had Thanksgiving so I’m sure a lot of you are tired of cooking. It takes me from Monday to Thursday to wrangle that particular meal for thirty minutes of eating! But the fun and family being togther is soooo worth the effort. And Lyndsey’s Caramel Apple Pie is the topper of the evening! There are two times I experiment in the kitchen. 1. I’m bored. 2. I’m procrastinating. Uhm, this week, it’s probably the latter as with Christmas fast approaching boredom is NOT on the agenda! So here’s my latest creation: SUE’S CHEESY CORN BISQUE 4

Passing on Fame

by Jo Robertson Fame. It’s such an illusive quality. Who determines when a person achieves it? Is notoriety fame? If so, the headlines that screech about Paris and Britney would be blasting the fame of those dubious divas. This past March Paul Scofield died at the ripe old age of eighty-six. He’s best known for his portrayal of Sir Thomas More, the historical cleric who defied Henry VIII in the classic A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS based on Robert Bolt’s play. Ah, what wonderful lines Scofield had! And Robert Shaw as Henry wasn’t half bad. My point is that Scofield

Other People’s Castoffs

by Nancy “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” How often have you heard that? Maybe you know someone–or even are someone–who can go to a yard sale, buy the clunkiest looking bunch of stuff, and turn it into something gorgeous. I suspect such people are related to the ones who actually know what they’re doing when they browse the aisles at Michaels. They’re the same people who can go to a flea market or an estate sale, buy a moldy old piece of furniture for a song, and refinish it so that it regains its former beauty. Or buy

Happy Thanksgiving!!

By Kate It’s Thanksgiving Day here in the USA and many of us are looking forward to celebrating the day by cooking, watching football, and eating too much. Oh, and we also give thanks for that which we’ve been blessed. 😉 Now, as some of you may know, I am officially known as the worst cook in the world. No, really. I burn things. All the time. Our smoke alarm gets a real workout whenever I step into the kitchen.And yet, for my family, I took a chance and cooked several side dishes for the holiday. So what do I

Gone With The Print

by KJ Howe Please welcome the fabulous Amy Atwell who is sharing her very unique and entertaining perspective on her publication journey! Welcome, Amy! A huge shout of thanks to all the Bandits for inviting me to blog today. I’ve been on a whirlwind tour celebrating my debut release Lying Eyes from Carina Press. Today, I want to share my journey to publication and why I think I’m smarter than an iconic fictional heroine. When I say the name Scarlet O’Hara, what sort of images does it conjure for you? Spoiled beauty. Cold-hearted businesswoman. Hard-working daughter. Stubborn and blinded by
