Last week at Smashwords. On July 31 the Smashwords computer removes all the discounts. Automatically. And everything goes back to full price. When you go on a book site, look at the right hand side and you will see where to click to be told the discount price. Everything of mine is 25% or 50% off.

Clueless in Seattle

School is out and oh yeah, the sun took a vacation and the rain clouds moved in. We adults are hiding out in the bookstores, libraries, any place quiet. Home isn't.

Looking for vampires off season...

We took a quick trip to vampire country, the inspiration for the Turning Vampire series, ahead of vacation traffic. Didn't see any vampires but did have lunch at a favorite restaurant and  came home with an armload of treasures from one of our favorite antiquarian bookstores.

Now it is back to work on book 7 of the Mudflat Magic series. This is scheduled for an autumn release date. 

In the meantime, Good Dog?,  another three story collection featuring another of Rock's dogs and other Mudflat problems, is scheduled for midsummer. The first two short story collections in the dog series were Guard Dog? and Watch Dog?  Okay, this did not start out as a planned series. It just happened. Like everything else in Rock's life.

What to do when it rains...

 Clean book shelves, discover missplaced books, read!

For collectors of children’s books, check out this site with its array of info and articles about book collecting. Now if I can clear another couple inches on a book shelf, maybe I can squeeze in another book. This month I have been rereading my way through the Mary Poppins books (yes, I have them all). And yes, I was inspired by the wonderful Saving Mr. Banks movie.

Two days a week to skinny?

Anyone can diet for two days a week, even me. I am currently reading a great book of recipes, plus menus total 500 calories a day.  Five days a week eat your regular choices. And wow, this has been tested and results are way above average. Anyhow, back to the cookbook, it is a delight with color photos of tempting dishes and all recipes are followed by a breakdown of serving size, calories, list of fat and cholesterol and sodium and all that stuff, laid out in large print and easy peasey to read and follow.

If I can stick to this, who knows, I may be dancing with the stars, them on TV, me in my living room. I might even again fit into those clothes I have retired to the back of my closet.

Oh right, what's the cookbook. It is The 2 Day a Week Diet Cookbook by Nancy Baggett & Ruth Glick who created and tried out all the recipes and menus, so if you see either of them, be sure to mention how svelte they are!
