Don't know about that but always like reading Maria's posts. Maybe I should try your books Maria. How do I get hold of them & what are they about?

I went into the greenhouse today to find my tomatoes and peppers have all died. RIP! Will have to buy more plants!

I follow this forum on email, but I haven't posted in so long when I came back to look for it, I couldn't find it! Guess we've been a bit on the quiet side.

I think a couple of you follow my series so I wanted to let you know that Under Witch Curse (Moon Shadow Series), the third book in the urban fantasy series is out. It's on sale this week, but will go up in price on April 9. This lets me offer it at a discount for those already following the series.

In other news...that's about all I've been up to this past couple of months--editing, copyediting and more editing. I did get the garden in and then it froze, got hailed on and froze again. But I did not give up. It's out there growing now. I am waiting of tomatoes!!!

Hope y'all are doing well.

's tonight) on the problems parents have with getting children to sleep. (Watch that programme I think it's tonight). I remember my eldest became difficult when I had to go late at night for an emergency operation. I wasn't there in the morning when she woke up and we had only just moved her out of the cot into a bed. We had problems with her for the next 18-24 months...absolute nightmare. It only really resolved when I had the second baby (not a solution!) but then she wouldn't let anyone hold her except me until she was over a year old! Both are now doctors! Ha ....dealing with everyone else's' problems!It does come to an end but very hard when you're going through it.

I know what you mean, I am so run down. The newborn will not sleep except in mummy or daddies arms. my wife goes back to work next week so that means looking after both kids on my own for 14 hours a day at the weekend and 3 evenings in the week as well as running a depsrtment at work. I just hope I make it to my holiday without breaking down.

Sounds great. Another nice place for little ones is Cyprus. I went there last year with my brother and sister in law as they have a villa out there. She is Greek Cypriot. The beaches are lovely, great for kids and there's a lot of history if you like that stuff (which I do!).

I have always wanted to visit Rome and when the chance came to go I took it! I am with a Benedictine community for the first week and then several of us are staying on for a few more days just to do the sightseeing stuff. Really looking forward to it. This year has not been that great for me so far so will be a chance to relax and unwind.

Menorca, to Calan forcat. Ive read its great for the kids and only a 2 hour flight. I cant wait I work in a factory with no eating and although I am a supervisor and have an office I work with my team on the shop floor. So when its 3 degrees outside its probably 5 inside. I remember 3 years ago when we had alot of snow, I had a 2 hour walk to work and it was minus 10 in the factory. If you spilt water on the floor it would freeze within a minuit.
Rome sounds great, Somewhere I would love to go without the Kids. My little baby (Ethan) who as talepes now can have his boots and bar off in the day which should make the holiday more fun.

Oh I have seen it but becuase I have missed so much of it, it was hard to write something in. I was tring to write something about toast in there, maybe I will give it ago sometime.

Oh perhaps I have made a mistake. There is a storyline on Amazon which was started a long time ago with Come on - why don't we write our own book right here in the fiction forum ? I'll do the first sentence, and then jump in....hold on, here we go. It is ridiculous, nonsensical but very funny at times. There have been a few killjoys who have tried to bring it to an end because it is so daft. Anyone who takes themselves seriously on it doesn't last long. It isn't meant to be taken as a high art form or probably any kind of art form. It is just mad and a form of literary anarchy.

I thought you had contributed to it at some point but if you had you would remember it without a doubt. We all enjoy putting little posts on about the Rainforest Postmaster General (i.e. the censor at Amazon God bless him!) when something gets deleted by Amazon for being incorrect (politically or otherwise) which gives you, I hope, an indication of what we are like.

Sorry I do not know what this is? please fill me in as I do not know what this storyline is.

PS GDB..Don't think I've seen you on the storyline with Jack, Jill, Pet etc. Have you abandoned it ?

Isn't it sad how these things are going? Our local bookshop is now half the size it was and has just started a campaign to have the rates in the town reduced. The owner has tackled the local MP as he pays a huge rate per square foot which is massively more than Tesco's etc pay for their out of town stores. Losing all these shops leaves the town with no character at all and we are seeing how the 'pricing benefits' of the big stores has worked out.
Despite Cameron etc with all their politicking there is no real support for small businesses now and competing against the big boys is almost impossible. Talking of which must see the result of By Election. I want the coalition out but am definitely not a fan of UKIP.

Yes, join in. We talk aload of rubish alot of the time,toilet paper and toast are just some of the subjects. The last subject I talked about was the price in waterstones for books. I honestly feel they could be one of the next to go on the high street.
In Chesterfield there is a lovely old style multi story department store co-op.It is now closing after around 70 years with a loss of a hundred jobs.Some of the poeple who work there have been working there all there life.
The thing I will miss most is at Christmas.It is the last shop that does a christmas toy display in the corner window. I used to stand there as a child looking at the train set and all the toys. Now I have a boy of my own (3 now), I took him this last xmas to look in the window, he was taken aback by the dispay. We both stood there for a good half an hour just looking at the toys. Everytime we went to town last xmas we would stand there just looking. A great memory for a Father and son that will be know more. A shame he will not be able to do the same with his children.

I seem to have missed out on the postings so am a bit behind but looking at the comments on short stories, you have to be good at your craft to do a short story well. I think Stephen Donaldson is one of the best novelists around. I love his Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever but he wrote some rally good short stories as well. Daughter of Regals is magnificent; it could easily be developed and expanded upon but it works wonderfully well as a short story and allows you to use your imagination to develop it as well.

Last week I walked into waterstones and walkes straight back out, The prices are stupid,I don't know how it keeps going.Two paperbacks for £10. In Tescos you can get to latest Paperbacks for £5. I also went into HMV and there closing down 'everthing must go sale' were still more expensive than the prices off of Amazon. Batman cartoon £3 from amazon £8 from HMV on sale. There is no wonder the high street is dying a death.

I can't see prices in the UK for Kindle books, but in the US, The Mister Trophy: The Markhat Files Series, Book 2 by Frank Tuttle is FREE today. It's a wonderful read if you like any kind of UF or even Fantasy. Tuttle's latest book is also available for pre-order at a sale price Brown River Queen (The Markhat Files). I love this series so I grabbed the pre-order (you only save a dollar, but in my experience, it goes full price for a year on the release date.) I've read The Mister Trophy and it's good.

Well, it depends on whether they learned that perhaps possessions aren't the most important thing after all. Because if people cannot afford things and they learn that maybe they don't actually need them, they both win. But in general that is not the sense that I had from the story which is why I regarded it as depressing. It just seems messed up to me.

In a way it is Maria but then it is about 2 young people, very much in love who want to make each other happy at Christmas. Although I always felt that he lost the most, after all her hair was going to grow again but he could never afford to get his watch back.
