New Author Page Needs Some Blog Love!

Path of the Writer
The Path of the Writer

 

Sojourner McConnell has increased her writing over the last months and will be releasing at least 1 new book by May 2017. With that in mind, an author page just for her work alone has been created. Now, she needs some love. She needs some lovely Google Plus subscribers and Blogger friends to follow her page. She just needs some help. Lonely Sojourner misses all her Friends on WordPress.

I have the best followers and friends in the world and would never impose, but I sure could use some support on the new page.  I will continue to do reviews and there will, of course, be some overlap on our content, but I felt this was a good fit for Sojo.  I hope you feel welcome at both sites and find enough to keep you entertained.  After resting up from the marathon posting on MTW I am finally back in the groove and am anticipating

After resting up from the marathon posting on MTW I am finally back in the groove and am anticipating Camp NaNoWriMo and completing another book. I am so excited about this new story. It is trying to get me to write it before next week and I am taking copious notes from what the characters are sharing. I can tell you this much though when someone close to me read the first few pages, they said that it had a Sean Connery vibe.

One ping only, please.

You know I love The Hunt for Red October, so I was beyond thrilled with the comparison. I am having to make myself not talk about it on here. It is just too much fun to chat about, and write about.

There is another quite different anthology coming out soon in which I hope to be included. I will know more about that later and will share as soon as I know.

On a totally different note, my cat Mufasa has a man cold. It is pitiful to see him unable to hunt and glare at us as we walk past him.

Thanks for always being so special to me. I have from the first day I started reviewing and sharing been so supported. I hope you feel I am supportive of you as well.  Thanks for your time!

An Hour with Vicki and Sojourner McConnell. Fun with Yvonne Mason

I was so honored to be asked by Yvonne Mason to be on her online radio program. She is a mystery/thriller writer in her own right, and I was excited to say yes.  I am starting her book The Mad Hatter this evening and I can’t wait.

The hour-long event was so fun. Once I put my nerves aside. I am not the most outgoing person, but I am in line for the most talkative award.  The interview was about my writing as Sojourner McConnell and I was able to share the story behind The Path of the Child. I was also able to discuss Mystery Thriller Week and my WIPs .

A-Z PE Challenge Day 17 (Q)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with a letter a day from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the quirky letter Q!

The Blog dejour is:

Captain’s Quarters

Yes, I know you can see what I did there.  This blog is quirky and I love quirky.  I love that The Captain labels her categories in Sailor terms.  She is  witty with her reviews and makes you want to read more about them. When she gives a review, you can tell that it is not holding back. I like that. It is nice when you see a reviewer growl in a review. I am a growler, so I appreciate that.

I have been reading her review list and once again I am impressed.  There is a Map Legend that shows all her reviews.  When I saw it, I was extremely jealous.  I must read more about this creating new pages.  Perhaps she will throw me a line and share how she made it so neat and tidy.

This Captain has it going on. She writes about Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Young Adult novels.  Each type has a unique seafaring category that just rocks!  I love her blog. It is so cute, clever and different.  You should check her out and see what you are missing.

When asked on one of her many Blog award nominations, In which country is it your dream to live in? She replied,

I don’t have a country that I want to live in permanently.  I currently like discovering new ports and cultures.  Though I have lived in over 10 American States and London.  But settle down?  Maybe when I am old and grey.

Enjoy your special letter day today. Pirate Captain.  Today is all about you!

A-Z PE Challenge Day 16 (P)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with a letter a day from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the precious letter P!

The Blog dejour is:

Psychedelic Bay

I have been looking forward to sharing these two bloggers with everyone. They have a pretty new blog and they are so special that they got 1000 followers in one month!  I was curious as to how they did it. They have produced an eBook called  Unseen Blogging Tips for Absolute Quick Success on how to earn that many followers.

The two bloggers are Cezane and Michelle and they are so friendly and supportive of the other bloggers.

I enjoy when Michelle and Cezane write together. They have a very heartfelt look on life and it is a good read.  The way they equate the mind to a knife is quite interesting in the blog post called Mastering the Mind and Heart.

The site’s purpose is best described on their about me page,

We aim to inspire many to a better life style and spread smiles like the showers of rain at Debudscha! Driven by a writer and a fighter, you’ve found yourself at a site where every beat of your heart rhymes to the smile on your face derived from the magic of words.

Welcome To Psychedelic Bay – Home to a Writer and a Fighter.


Enjoy your special letter day today. Cezane and Michelle.  Today is all about you both!

A-Z PE Challenge Day 11 (K)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with the letter from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the Keepable letter K!

The Blog dejour is:

A Kinder Way

Nikki writes her blog in order to promote a kinder way of living.  Her blog’s motto is : Think Kinder Live Kinder Be Kinder.  She strives toward this in every post. Her joy is infectious with adorable photos challenges, Articles on Mental health, Kind thoughts of the Day.

Nikki’s blog truly is an uplifting and enjoyable place to visit with each post.  She has been blogging for several months now and recently did a makeover on her blog’s appearance.  I think it looks amazing.  I hope you will jump over and visit her page, it is a very pleasant place to visit.

When writing her “about me” page, she was quick to share the purpose of the blog. Here is her mission in her own words.

My mission here at A Kinder Way is to get you excited about living a kinder life. This is is not a place for perfection. No one can do everything ”right”, but we all can do something to make things better every day. Whether that’s buying a cruelty free product, eating a meatless meal, taking a long hot bath to soothe our soul or simply smiling at someone as we pass by. Each of these things adds kindness to our lives and the world around us.

Enjoy your special letter day today. Nikki.  Today is all about you!
