a TeMPLe of WoRDS

I love to read.  Any free moment I have, that's what you'll find me doing.  My taste in books is rather eclectic - so much so that friends have actually commented on it.  I'm honest about what I like and what I don't like.  You can also find e on Goodreads - and on my bookish blog The Gal in the Blue Mask. :)

She who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten

A break from social media + The Gal's Halloween Frivolities

This spur-of-the-moment move to Florida has been quite stressful, but absolutely amazing, and definitely what I needed in my life.  Getting the house fixed up and furnished has been time consuming, and it's finally almost complete.  BUT... that left me needing a break from social media... even though I had just come back to some of them (i.e. BookLikes and Goodreads).

 

I didn't stop posting on The Gal in the Blue Mask, though, so if you follow the link, you'll get to see all the Author Interviews and Character Interviews that have been posted while I was gone.

 

I have them going up until the middle of the month, and then I will begin my Christmas Takeover stories.  There were a LOT of authors interested in participating via interviews this year.  I'm loving this.

Scares That Care 2017

This past weekend was my very first Scares That Care, so I decided to write a blog post (with pictures) to share my adventure.

It's been awhile

I know I know.  It's been awhile since I've been on here.

 

I got really busy working full time in retail... and after the horrors that I dealt with there, well, it's been hard for me to deal with anyone... online or in person.

 

I'm working on coming back out of my shell, so bare with me on this.

 

I do miss y'all... quite a bit.

 

I have started working for a couple of authors as a personal assistant (this may be a thing for me, considering how much I've loved being a PA in the past).  If you're looking for a new book to read, I have a couple from one of my authors (some audiobooks, too, if that's what you're into.  All fall under the horror genre, but with additional sub-genres that make them quite different from each other.  Reach out to me if you're interested. :)

The last two installments of The Gal's 62 Days of Horror...

Today is New Year's Day (I hope everyone had a fun time ringing in the new year), and to finish off The Gal's 62 Days of Horror, we have an Among the Stacks with Lisa Vasquez (author, and owner of Stitched Smile Publications, LLC) and the final Christmas Takeover story, one about New Year's Eve, from the amazing, talented, and oh so gorgeous Stevie Kopas-Starnes!
