I’ve always loved the Winnie the Pooh. In this article Mark Pygas collects 19 of the best quotes from these wonderful books.
All of Rocking Horse’s titles including P.A.W.S. are part of the new Kindle Unlimited program. I (like Misha) believe that is a good thing.
Amazon has just launched a new program that they call Kindle Unlimited.
The short form is that subscribers pay $9.99 a month and are able to borrow any of the books (e-book and audiobook) that are in the Kindle Unlimited library.

People out there will be reading our books for free! The sky is falling!

Anyone who has read P.A.W.S. will know that a good chunk of it takes place in St. Louis – around Forest Park to be precise. St. Louis is a great place to be a writer. We have lots of libraries and indie bookstores that are very author friendly. Here are a few of the locals . . .
“Books Are For People Who Wish They Were Somewhere Else” – Mark Twain
I love my town. St. Louis is an odd place. It’s not really a city, not in the way that say, Chicago or Los Angeles is a city. Historically, what happened is that a whole bunch of different people all decided that just west of the Mississippi river was a good place to settle down and start a town, and so a whole bunch of small towns got started in the same general area, and as they grew they kind of grew together, but they never really merged to make a city, they stayed a bunch of small towns.
Part of it is that when Saint Louis County was formed, Saint Louis City elected not to be part of the county. This put a limit on the growth of the city proper and the little municipalities that…

So, join in the fun and while you’re entering the contest or buying a sale copy of Caught Between Two Curses, join in a rousing rendition of “Take me out to the ballgame. Take me out with the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks. I don’t care if I ever get back. . .”
Cover reveal for The Provider.
Okay, it actually happened on Saturday, not today. I’m sorry. I wanted to get back to my regular blogging schedule, and waiting these 48 hours has been so hard! But, I don’t have to wait any more! Here it is!
It’s nothing like what I pictured, and that is totally okay. I’m a writer, not an artist. 🙂 I think it turned out beautifully. I can’t wait to actually hold the book in my hands. I can pretty much guarantee I’m going to cry.
Eight days until we find out! 😀
