Chris McMullen: Read Tuesday, Black Friday
I’d like to introduce those of you haven’t heard about Read Tuesday to this spectacular event!
I’d like to thank Jennifer, Writings of a Mrs., for the opportunity to do this guest post. (*my pleasure Chris*)
The problem with Black Friday for book sales:
Every year when Black Friday arrives, customers do plenty of shopping, buying products for themselves and gifts for others. Stores offer enticing discounts, at least on select products, and shoppers stand in lines for hours before the stores even open. Continue reading
Guest Blogger: Laura Lord
I’d like to introduce you all to Laura Lord. She is not only a great writer but truly a kind, generous and giving person. Laura, without even really knowing me, designed my cover for my e book with the image that I chose. I am very grateful to her.
That being said, I couldn’t pass up this short story submission that Laura wants to share with us, because it’s so creepily good!!
Enjoy the read and Happy Halloween to you all!
Hi guys! It’s me, Laura A. Lord, aka the Mama. I’m a mother (obviously) of two wonderful little monsters, with another on the way, an author, a blogger…the list goes on and on. I am blessed enough to be able to spend most all of my days writing, and have published three books in the last few years. You can check them out on Amazon, and I’ll love you forever, or at least really, really like you. Better even, follow me on wordpress and check out my, almost daily, musings and snippets of life with children, family, the Husband, and my dementia-suffering uncle. Laughter truly is medicine, and I medicate daily.
It is Better
“And so put to death the sinful, earthly things…” Brian began, pausing as his lips fought with the next words. “…lurking with you. Have nothing to do with sexual immority…”
“Immorality, Brian. Immorality,” their teacher, Ms. Grayson, corrected him.
“Immorality, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, ‘cause a greedy person is an idolater…” His words came faster, catching up and running over one another. “…worshipping all the things in the world. Because these are sins, and God is angry and coming.”
“The anger of God is coming.” Continue reading

So I have been ‘working’ on my fb page as of late and giving the social networking some love and attention. My facebook page has been growing slowly but surely and I have enjoyed all of the wonderful pages, images and blogs that I have stumbled across over the past few days. ( you can join me on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/writingsofamrsjennifer?ref=hl , head on over and hit like, you can receive snippets into my life there along with all of my blog posts )
My face book page was mentioned in an article posted earlier this week by Joy Findley that features Zee Southcombe and she discusses social networking and blogging that you can take a look at here if you’d like :
This morning was by far my most favorable day on facebook when I happened upon a blog post entitled Resolve by Mostly True Stuff.
Isn’t resolve such a fantastic word?
The resolve of the human spirit has always been a fascination of mine and this post puts it all into such beautiful, raw, real and compelling words.
If you have a moment please check out her blog post. I promise that you won’t be disappointed.

Exclamation points, a childrens poem
I over use exclamation points!
It must be my passion trying to pour out of me.
I really don’t mean to yell.
I often feel like a young child, bouncing up and down trying so patiently to not interrupt. Big eyes looking up longingly, waiting for the right time, unsure when that is, all the while pulling and tugging at arms and pants to help hold back the words, until it erupts, interrupts.
It’s exciting to write and it’s exciting to be alive!
So I will over use my exclamation marks!
Live with passion.
Live the life that you were meant to live.
Pour over into the lives of those around you.
Cup of Water
What’s the matter?
Father, father I need some water
Daughter, daughter, here’s your water
“Dedicated to my husband, the Father of the Daughter that gave the cup of water, many a night!”
