An Anniversary Giveaway & Cover Reveal!

Four years ago today, on a day not unlike today, Nikki Duncan signed her first publishing contract with Samhain Publishing. That story was kicked off by a one sentence story idea tossed out as a challenge. With its inception, the Sensory Ops series was born. Since that story, Nikki was also challenged, by her first editor, to write contemporary novellas. Now, with 13 books available, she’s revealing the cover of what will be her 14th books. To celebrate the anniversary [...]

BLOG AND BOOK ANNOUNCEMENTS

BLOG AND BOOK ANNOUNCEMENTS

So, you’ve possibly noticed that I haven’t blogged in awhile. A long while. There are a few reasons for that. First, we moved for the first time in 17 years so the month of January was spent getting ready for that. The month of February was spent getting settled. Second, I have been teaching creative writing classes for a local college and that’s taken up more of my “free” time than I’d expected, not that I had much while moving [...]

The summer I went temporarily insane. I’m often asked what I do to relax and rejuvenate. How do I refill the well? I figure if doing crazy things doesn’t qualify, I don’t know what does. For the past seven years my daughter, granddaughter and I have left the husbands at home while we girls traveled the world seeking adventure. And I do mean girls, the baby was seven when we went in search of our first big exploration. She’s like [...]

700 Miles to Santa

If you keep up with me on Facebook you’ll know I’ve confessed about not really being in the holiday spirit this year. We’ll say I’ve been busy and have a lot going. I’ve struggled to get in the mood, which is bizarre for me because I LOVE Christmas. There’s a feeling in the air that’s… cheerful. I’m missing it this year, but then I find stories like this one that make me remember why I do in fact love this [...]

Making Moments

We’ve all been told, probably several times, that we should stop and smell the roses. Embrace life. Enjoy the little moments. Maybe it’s the holidays, maybe it’s just that we have a lot of changes going on in our family right now, but I’ve been thinking about this stuff lately. The more I think about it, and the more hubby and I talk about our plans, the more clear things become in my mind. Hubby and I have always talked [...]

Kids Giving Miracles

It’s that time of year where everywhere you go you see a tree full of cards. Each card represents a child in need of something. In need of someone with more having the heart to choose one. I blogged a little about this last week, about a lesson my youngest taught me in regards to giving at the holidays. We chose to select someone from the angel tree at school. I figured, for the girls, it’s great to give something to a random [...]

And then their mommy learned…

And then their mommy learned…

My kids have always picked an angel off an angel tree at Christmas, either with me or one of their grandmother’s. They give things for kids through the church and never question why they’re doing it. It’s just something you do. You give back to others. Last night I was looking through the angel tree list for the kids in our local school district and was talking about it with my oldest. My youngest, Meme, said she wanted to be [...]

The Time is Coming Quickly

The Time is Coming Quickly

I was joking with the family the other day that we should have skipped buying Christmas presents because if the “forecast” is to be believed, we’re not going to be here to celebrate. I mean, it’s almost 12/21/12 after all. Okay, so I’m not at all worried about the end, but I figure now is as good a time as any to thank each one of you for being a miracle in my life. Whether you read the blog regularly [...]

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH A SECOND CHANCE?

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH A SECOND CHANCE?

Have you ever wondered what you’d do if you had a second chance to do over something in your life?  Maybe right a wrong you’d done somebody.  Or finish something you’d left unfinished.  The possibilities are endless. I’ve often wondered what I’d do differently if given such an opportunity.  Most of us never get that second chance.  Then I had a dream.  A wounded soul, grieving for a lost brother, the brother who didn’t get to fulfill the thing he [...]
