It looks like October is going to be a busy month. September ended with rain, four days of it, a nice gentle rain that we always need. The first day, Tiger and I were outside, so we stood in the garage and watched the rain pour down.

Tiger had a great view from top of the van.

Patches decided to stay inside and nap.
Friday we were happy to see the sunshine.


Now for the Blitz

SECRETS WE KEEP by Kelly Hashway is available now! Grab it today! 

→ iBooks:


Madison Kramer’s life is finally coming together. With her boyfriend and publicist, Trevor, by her side, her career as a best-selling author is sure to really take off.

But one thing hasn’t changed. Death follows Maddie wherever she goes, and a night that should have been nothing but celebrating the New Year in the arms of the man she loves, turns into the scene of another murder.

The bodies are piling up, and the murder suspect wants Maddie’s help in freeing his name. Her secret past continues to come to the surface, putting her life at risk in a deadly game where Maddie doesn’t know whom she can trust.


Kelly Hashway fully admits to being one of the most accident-prone people on the planet, but that didn’t stop her from jumping out of an airplane at ten thousand feet one Halloween. Maybe it was growing up reading R.L. Stine’s Fear Street books that instilled a love of all things scary and a desire to live in a world filled with supernatural creatures, but she spends her days writing speculative fiction. Kelly’s also a sucker for first love, which is why she writes romance under the pen name Ashelyn Drake. When she’s not writing, Kelly works as an editor, and also as Mom, which she believes is a job title that deserves to be capitalized.

  1. Sure lots of great things about for the month indeed. Tiger has the perfect spot to avoid the rain and watch it too. Patches has a good idea to nap all the way through.

    1. Yeah, Tiger is a character. Patches prefers the indoors.

  2. Sounds riveting! Congrats, Kelly!

  3. Those cats are adorable. I usually have to worry about my outdoor kitty going under the car, not on top of it!

    Hashway's book sounds exciting. As a writer, I hope to never have those kind of experiences in real life!

    Also, I have a question on publishing I'd like to run by you, Beverly. When you have a moment, could you send your email address to me at:

    tamara (dot) narayan (at) gmail (dot) com

    Thank you!

    1. I know what you mean, Tamara. Tiger gets under the car too but when the engine starts he runs.

    2. Thanks, Tamara! I hope to never have those experiences in my life as well!

  4. Wonderful interesting post Beverly and those pictures are just so awesome.


    1. Thank you, Yvonne. My kitties are good subjects for photos. :)

  5. Thank you for sharing my book, Beverly. Your cats are adorable!
