Is this Love? #MFRWauthor #firstlove #amwriting #blogchallenge

Yes, my first love was David Coverdale of Whitesnake. Heck, I may have even crushed on his wife Tawny Kitain or at least dreamed of being her. Let’s face it. David was gorgeous, his face his hair his voice, the way he moved, all perfect in my book. I even loved him in his first group Deep Purple.

As a matter of fact, I was a fickle little girl and loved all the big hair bands in the 70’s and 80’s. They had competition tough with Starsky and Hutch and Don Johnson.

Then real life comes along in the 80’s I graduate meet my first husband have a child and real love ensues.  (My husband had thick curly sandy hair too though not as long as the big hair guys. I never was able to convince him to grow it that long.)

Ok, so I am sure this isn’t what week 42 of the MFRW blog challenge meant. The topic is my First love and when I saw this I was at a loss.  I had written about my first puppy love and first kiss.   I talk about my love (obsession) of books all the time.  I didn’t want to be repetitive. I decided you guys haven’t seen my less serious side so I am being silly cat today. It is true though what I said. I do love book hair bands. Now I’ve moved on to cowboys, anti-hero, detectives you name it whatever my mood is I can find a new love daily in books. I still have that fondness for my 80’s bands.  I guess I am really showing my age too LOL!

Now let’s go see who the other author’s first loves were.

 

My Heart’s Not in It # MFRWauthor #blogchallenge #amwriting

It’s week 41 of the Marketing or Romance Writer Blog Challenge. This weeks topic is blogging inspiration. My post will be very short as I am not very inspired to blog.Truth be told, my heart’s not in it anymore. I never know what to write about that will draw readers. I have tried umpteen things but all a fail.

So my blogging inspiration is this MFRW challenge. I have managed all but one week and that was because my computer was broken and I fit it in the next week. I do post an occasional spotlight and review for a few friends releases. I hope soon to begin posting a teaser again once I get more of my story edited.

That’s my inspiration. what’s yours? Any tips to inspire me? now let’s go see what inspires the other bloggers.

Favorite Quotes from books #MFRWauthor #blogchallenge #amwriting

This is week 40 of the MFRW 52 week blog challenge.  This weeks topic is hard for me since I have memory issues and I can’t remember things word for word. I read so many books it is hard to pick quotes. I am going back to where i began with my favorite paranormal Authors Laurell K Hamilton. here is a few intriguing quotes from her books.

I love Laurell K Hamilton both the Meredith Gentry and Anita Blake series. they were very different but fun.

30281

“I talk to myself everyone once in a while. Give me very good advice. Sometimes I even take it.”
― Laurell K. HamiltonGuilty Pleasures
“Love is too precious to be ashamed of.”
Incubus Dreams (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #12)
“Sometimes it’s not the optimist you need, but another pessimist to walk beside you and know, absolutely know, that the sound in the dark is a monster, and it really is as bad as you think.
Did that sound hopeless? It didn’t feel hopeless. It felt reassuring. It felt – real.”
Blood Noir (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #16)
“And then there are the rare ones who know love, who understand it. Who freely give of themselves, demanding only a return of that love , that trust.”
A Stroke of Midnight (Merry Gentry, #4)
“Accidental sex. He made it sound like I fell down, and there just happened to be an erection in the way.”

I fell in love with Rachel in The Hallows series. I don’t usually read books over but these i could read over and over.  I even fell in love with all the bad guys.Trent stilll can make my heart speed up.

Every Which Way But Dead (The Hollows, #3)

― Kim HarrisonEvery Which Way But Dead

 “Hey, ah, does anyone want a cookie or something? Oh yeah. A cookie. That would make everything better. Dunked in a shot of tequila, maybe? Or better yet, just the bottle? Yeah, that ought to do it.”
― Kim HarrisonEvery Which Way But Dead
“But a slow, deeply satisfied smile came over him, and his breath quickened. ‘So softly it starts,’ he whispered. ‘Foolishly clever and with an unsurvivable trust. It just saved your miserable life, that questionable show of thought, my itchy-witch.’ Al’s smile shifted, becoming lighter. ‘And now you will live to possibly regret it.”
” ― Kim HarrisonEvery Which Way But Dead
Pale Demon (The Hollows, #9)
“Smile…it makes people wonder what you’re up to.”
“Come on, Rachel!” Jenks shrilled. “You’re a badass, not a bad witch!”

Now for some contemporary romance

“Kiss my fairy dust, Bitches!”
Wolfsong (Green Creek, #1)
“Way I figure it, if I’m forced to have a partner, might as well have one with benefits. If you’re annoying me, fucking you will be more satisfying than punching you.” Prophet grinned, then added slyly, “And I could punch you afterwards.”
― S.E. JakesCatch a Ghost

This one was a tear Jerker.

Keeping Promise Rock (Promises, #1)
“I love you. I want to shout it sometimes. I know you worry about our letters and texts getting read–shades of WWII, haunting us still, I guess, and I’m well aware that nothing’s safe on the internet. I worry too. You need to know that when I say it, when I ask you to say it, it’s because my lungs feel full of dark water, and seeing it or writing it lets me breathe.”
― Amy LaneKeeping Promise Rock
I hope some of these inspire you to try a book. I could go on and on but let’s go see what book quotes the other authors like.

My Mama taught me well. MFRWauthor

It’s time for Week 39 – MFRW 52-week Blog Challenge. #MFRWAuthor~Words to Live by

I did some researching for great quotes on this topic and found this awesome page. of  50  inspirational quotes to live by. I highly recommend you bookmark to go to when you need a lift. As always I try to overthink things hence the research for over half an hour. I decided to stick with the one thing my mom and grandma taght me and I always try to live by.

“Do to others what you want them to do to you. This is the meaning of the law of Moses and the teaching of the prophets” (Matthew 7:12 NCV, see also Luke 6:31).

The King James version…Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you: do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

 

Put simply the way my mom said..Do to others as you want them to do to you. So every time I begin to say or do something I try to think about if I would want someone to do that to me. She also taught me to turn the other cheek.  I try to be a good person but I am only human so I do like the words.Karma is a bitch and hope it doesn’t fall back on me. LOL So I sit back and watch.

Let’s go see what the other authors live by.

I like winter too. Yes, I am one of the weird ones. I like cool weather. I like snow. ( i didn’t say I loved being out in it.) I like Christmas and all the lights and decorations. My Birthday is in winter.

 

I like Spring too. I like to see the flowers emerging, here the birds chirping see the squirrels frolicking and all the new life being born. The allergies I could live without. So I spent much of my spring looking out.

 

Summer, I really have to think about that. It is my least favorite month. It is too hot so I can’t get out much with my asthma. I guess I can say I like the fresh garden food, fruits, and veggies. I like to go on trips when we can afford to and this past summer I did enjoy the water park with my brother and his family.

 

I do like the fourth of July and Memorial Day cookouts.

these are the things I like best about the seasons. What are your favorites? let’s go see what the other bloggers like best!
