#AccountaClub: Aug 31, 2018


Reporting in for Isa-Lee Wolf's #AccountaClub. Each Friday we post an accountability update for our current projects/goals/whatever.

Busy, busy, busy....lots done, lots more to do!

1) Support hubby's Backend of Nowhere Garage project in any way I can.
The project continues despite several setbacks. Phew!

2) Write, edit and publish (ebook only) book four in my C'Mon Inn Mystery Trilogy, "Paradise Dream".
I did set up a Scrivener project and made a few plot idea notes.

3) In addition, I have three blogs that have asked me to write guest posts.
Working frantically on the second post,  should have it done in the next couple of days. The third is the easiest and will quickly follow.

August is gone and fall will soon here here. Time to set goals for September.
  1. Get the RV cleaned, sorted and prepped for the snowbird season.
    Time to slowly work on getting the RV ready for winter and our "move" to southern Georgia in early to mid November. Sorting clothes is a big thing as well as other "stuff" that needs to get cleaned out.
     
  2. Write, edit and publish (ebook only) book four in my C'Mon Inn Mystery Trilogy, "Paradise Dream".
    I need to start writing the fourth in my C'Mon Inn Mystery Series. This one will be titled Paradise Dream and will tell us some of the backstory for the Thompson Twins as well. Oh, and there may be a wedding involved!

See you next Friday!

#NewRelease: C'Mon Inn Mystery Trilogy - Now Available on Amazon

    New box set.  Get all three books in one!  Check it out...    


Paradise Down:
Aloha Nicholás! But will this be a hello or a goodbye?

When Lucia Santerez returns home to Hawaii to help her brother Nicholás with his new dive shop, she learns Nicholás has disappeared--and someone doesn't want him found. 

Enlisting the aid of hunky vacationing firefighter, Brandon Matthews, gets them the wrong kind of attention. They discover what lies under the water off the coast of the Hawaiian island of Kaua`i could make you rich or get you killed.

Paradise Dead:
Hawaii - paradise or a death trap? 

Ten friends gather in Kauai to fulfill the final wish of an old friend - the scattering of his ashes. One by one, they are beset by accidents. 

Are they really accidents?

Or could something more sinister be at play?


Paradise Drift:

A fiery explosion sets a new course for the passengers on a charter boat.

What is intended as a relaxing vacation for three childhood friends and their partners becomes a fiery inferno and not everyone will escape.

When the survivors gather a year later, they find themselves involved in a surprising investigation into the events of the prior year.

Will anyone’s life ever be the same?

#AccountaClub: Aug 24, 2018


Reporting in for Isa-Lee Wolf's #AccountaClub. Each Friday we post an accountability update for our current projects/goals/whatever.

I almost missed this today...still doing catchup from a week of having 10 & 12 your old grandgirls visiting. LOL!

1) Support hubby's project in any way I can.
The project is still on-going and will be for at least another two months. Our goal is to get it closed in for the winter. We were hoping to get concrete, too, but not sure that's going to happen until next spring. I'm the reminder gal - helping to keep things on track.

2) Finish the rewrite of my former Kindle World books, get new covers and republish them. I also plan on combining the three into a box set as well as a print version.
This is DONE!!! All of it...here are the links:

Paradise Down - book one
Paradise Dead - book two
Paradise Drift - book three
C'Mon Inn Trilogy - ebook
C'Mon Inn Trilogy - print


I love the new cover for the trilogy - what do you think?
I have also started to make notes for the next book Paradise Dream which will give the Thompson Twins (sisters) some backstory as to how they ended up in Hawaii, owning the C'Mon Inn B&B. Finishing this book will now be goal #2, replacing this one.

3) In addition, I have three blogs that have asked me to write guest posts.
One guest post is done, one is partly written (although I'm not happy with it so may start from scratch). Here's the published guest post #1.

Another week down...see you next Friday!

#Accountaclub: Aug 10, 2018


Reporting in for Isa-Lee Wolf's #AccountaClub. Each Friday we post an accountability update for our current projects/goals/whatever.

I missed/skipped last week....sorry!

1) Support hubby's project in any way I can.
Well, the contractors came and went and we have a pavilion. Check it out at the Backend of Nowhere Garage blog. I've sent out an email plea for help from family & friends, we'll see how that goes.

2) Finish the rewrite of my former Kindle World books, get new covers and republish them. I also plan on combining the three into a box set as well as a print version.
This is getting there. The covers are done and the first edit of the three are complete. I need to do one more run through, figure out a marketing strategy and hopefully get them published before we have a week of grandkids visiting.

3) In addition, I have three blogs that have asked me to write guest posts.
One down and two to go! I plan to get the other two done by the end of this weekend. Phew!

Two of our young grandgirls are coming to stay with us for a week, the 15th to the 22nd. I will be busy all week so will be skipping next week's post.

Another week down...see you next Friday in two weeks!

Never have I ever....


There is a drinking game called "Never Have I Ever". I've never played it but it made me start thinking about some of the things I've never done, things that it often seems like everyone else has. So I thought I'd list a few and see what things are on YOUR never done list.

I've never...
  • ...attended a high school football game.
  • ...eaten snails. (ugh!)
  • ...been a first adopter of new fashion fads.
  • ...driven a car over ninety mph. (We won't mention my motorcycle though.)
  • ...willingly eaten anything tasting of black licorice.
  • ...experienced a tornado (only a warning).
  • ...changed a flat tire.
  • ...liked the taste of whiskey, bourbon or most liquors. (Vodka & spiced rum only.)
  • ...driven somewhere on the spur of the moment. (I'm a planner at heart.)
  • ...visited Europe or really wanted to (other than Scotland/Ireland).
  • ...eaten liver and onions since I became an adult.
  • ...ordered chocolate cake! (Not even Carnival's famous chocolate melting cake.)
  • ...gone to an ugly Christmas sweater party.
  • ...willing swam under water. (No snorkeling, either.)
  • ...gone (or wanted to go) water skiing, parasailing, bungee jumping or the like.
  • ...visited the Empire State building.
  • ...participated in an on-line challenge (like eating Tide Pods, or dancing beside a moving car).
  • ...played Spin the Bottle.
  • ...lost anything to fire, hurricane or other natural disaster. (Blessed!)
  • ...worn stilletos! (Nor will I ever...)
What are some of the things it feels like "everyone else" does but you haven't?
