  It’s sadly incongruous to be sending my Jewish friends a Happy Passover greeting during this time of a terrible war in Israel. I pray the Lord will comfort those who suffer great loss, as I pray for peace.


  Plan an in-store or online celebration at your favorite indie bookstore April 27, 2024. 
   Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country. (Happens every year on the last Saturday in April.)
   If you find you’re not able to support a local indie book store next weekend, not to worry. Any day will work fine.


For Writers:

  On Jane Friedman’s blog, editor Tiffany Yates Martin offers some thoughts on Why Your Flashbacks Aren’t Working | Jane Friedman


  The Mobile Writers Guild members are putting together a new anthology, using song titles as the title of their short story or poem. There is, however, a huge caveat: Writers (of all kinds of work) need to avoid quoting actual song lyrics “like the plague.” 

  If you’ve thought about using song lyrics in your story, read this:


Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go. 
    E. L. Doctorow


  Remember how I had to miss posting a blog recently because my computer quit working? This week, it’s my minivan. Aaaarrrggghhh! I have to get it towed to my mechanic on Tuesday, so he can determine if the problem is fixable. The vehicle is only 16-years old. How can it not be fixable? Fingers crossed.

  Okay, that’s it for today. You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same. Raising prayers for a happy and safe you and yours.


Now some words from my sponsors:

Escape the mundane via my novels, THE DAWGSTAR and DEATH ON THE YAMPA─fast-paced, thriller/suspense stories with sassy banter and a touch of Jane Bond romance. 

  The books are available on Amazon or through your favorite eTailer and bookstore. Got a library card? You can read the ebooks free from Hoopla.

  Nota bene: Angela Trigg, the RITA Award-winning author and owner of The Haunted Book Shop has a few signed copies of my paperback books in stock. TO ORDER, contact:
