Quote for the week: I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”
I just finished reading the latest anthology from the IWSG. A new one will be coming out next year. Have you entered?
Below are my thoughts about TICK TOCK
A STITCH IN CRIME
An Insecure Writer’s Support Group
Are you in the mood for some good mysteries? Do ghosts hang around you? Have you ever been accused of committing a crime? Do you sometimes wish you could go back in time and change the past? I could go on and on, but if you can answer any of these questions with a “yes” then you’ll likely want to learn more. So, get a copy of TICK TOCK A STITCH IN CRIME, an Insecure Writer’s Support Group Anthology, and meet some very interesting characters. If you dare.
In this anthology, you’ll find stories by Jemi Fraser, C. Lee McKenzie, Mary Aalgaard, and Christine Clemetson. Also, S. R. Betler, Tara Tyler, Yolanda Renee, and J. R. Ferguson have contributed their work. Rebecca M. Douglass, C. D. Gallant-King, and Gwen Gardner’s stories are included, as well.
So, turn on the lights. You don’t want to read this Anthology in the dark.Get in a comfy chair and enjoy visiting each story and meeting interesting people. Oh, be sure to lock your doors and windows, too.

Wait! We're not finished yet. Here's a peek at a book that will be out March 5, 2019, from Dancing Lemur Press. You don't want to miss this one. Here are my thoughts. Another gorgeous cover.
By Tonja Drecker
Music boxes are lovely. One can picture a ballerina twirling and spinning on her toes to a beautiful tune. It’s enchanting. Many girls aspire to being ballerinas, even though it’s a lot of work and no guarantee they’ll succeed. In Author Tonja Drecker’s new novel MUSIC BOXES, Lindsey McKay’s dream is to be a star like the ballerina in her music box. Things look promising for a while. Lindsey and her family move from Nebraska to Manhattan to give her the opportunity. Madame Destinee says she is talented and will be a star. But weird things start happening, and her dreams are threatened.
Tonja Drecker has woven a fascinating tale of mystery and suspense. I cheered throughout the story for Lindsey to succeed in her quest to be the best. She’s a likable character, willing to work to reach her goal. Then, when things start falling apart, she learns what the important things in her life are.
This is a story that will touch the hearts of young and old. Young readers who are striving to reach their own dreams. Older readers who remember their dreams. MUSIC BOXES would make a great addition to school libraries and public libraries, as well as your own library. Recommended. Release date March 5, 2019.

Have a great week!
