Passion Fruit Paranormal-Scope

Do paranormals eat fruit? They just might. I wonder which one eats passion fruit?

While I am not qualified in any way to read neither stars nor planets, I am intimately linked to the paranormal in the world in many ways. So are you.

The paranormal-scope is for entertainment purposes only and is not meant to guide your life by.

The week for:

Aries:
Werewolves go nuts for apples. Maybe it’s because they can chase them and eat them. It’s similar to chasing your dream. Go for it.

Taurus:
Zombies don’t understand bananas, but they will follow them anywhere. Take a class in a fun subject.

Gemini :
Shapeshifters love pineapples. Why? It’s challenging to get at the fruit but when you do it’s so delicious. A project you’re working on will bear fruit.

Cancer:
Vampires devour passion fruit! It reminds them of a simpler, kinder time filled with exotic excitement. Someone new is coming into your life.

Leo:
Pixies go for grapes, mainly because it’s their size and they can take a small bite and suck in the juice. Cool off and enjoy a vacation even if it’s a weekend away.

Virgo:
Elves eat watermelon. Then they run around and plant the seeds. Add to your home plants or buy something special for your garden.

Libra:
Faeries enjoy apricots. Take some “me” time and do your favorite thing.

Scorpio:
Dragons eat cantaloupe. It provides a natural energy boost they need when they fly. Take good care of yourself. Eat healthier.

Sagittarius:
Mermaids hunger for cherries and will often leave water just to get some. Stretch beyond your comfort zone to attain your dream.

Capricorn:
Sea dragons with climb out of the sea into cranberry bogs just to get some of that delectable tart fruit. Try out a new restaurant.

Aquarius:
Sirens are strong and will shake the tree to get the coconut. They can’t get enough of that flavor. It’s time to indulge a passion of yours.

Pisces:
Weretigers love blueberries. Sometime they end up wearing the blueberries. Add new items with style to your wardrobe.

Because Your Kiss Is On My List…By Ripley Proserpina

Next week, July 24th, my fairytale retell releases. While Beauty Sleeps, is my take on Sleeping Beauty. If Beauty had a different sort of curse, and four princes. It has a reverse harem twist, of course, because I love those.

Now, just for you, here is a teaser of the story. I hope you enjoy it! (Click the cover for buy links;))

Chapter One

Kumiko

“Kumiko.” This prince’s voice was a smooth baritone. He probably cultivated the tone—watched car commercials and repeated phrases, “Best in class…off-road towing.” Perhaps as a child, he’d been enchanted by a good fairy with a voice so perfect it seduced his listener.

Sort of like the way my face had been enchanted to keep people away from me… 

“Kumiko,” Prince Hideto said again—he loved to repeat my name, “these past days spent with you have been…” He appeared to search for the word and I rested my chin in my hand, staring at him through the glass. He was so handsome with his dark eyes and broad shoulders. And that voice. In the past week, I’d often closed my eyes just so I could listen to the cadence of his voice. 

Hideto couldn’t see me. None of the princes who arrived at my home could see my face until I showed it to them. 

And then? 

Well. Let’s just say, the evil witch who’d cursed me did a fantastic, and thorough, job. 

“…amazing.” I’d forgotten Hideto hadn’t finished his sentence, but now I let out a groan of disappointment. Amazing? I’d hoped for more. Not even his voice could mask the tone of falsity. He was lying. 

Next to the glass was an intercom and I pressed the button that would allow him to hear me. “Amazing?” I asked. “How so?” I bit my lip, and behind me, my older sister Miori gave a long suffering sigh. 

“Why are you encouraging him?” she asked. 

“Shh! Let’s see what he comes up with,” I said. Maybe he’d surprised me.

“Just tell him to leave,” Fuyumi droned. Next to me, she stuck out her tongue at the prince. With one word, he’d gone from having potential, to being yet another liar in a long line of liars. “Haven’t you seen him posing when he thinks we aren’t here?” 

I hadn’t, but still, I flapped my hand at her. “Shut up!” 

“I haven’t seen your face,” Hideto went on, oblivious to our decision. “But each word we speak to each other only shows me how beautiful you are. The curse won’t keep me from you. It won’t keep me from seeing who you truly are.” His dark-eyed gaze traveled over the mirror as if he searched for me. 

In that instant, when he spoke about seeing who I was, who I truly was, the fight went out of me. 

“Right.” I smoothed down the pretty skirt I’d chosen to wear today and stood. A waste of a nice outfit.

“You’re not going to just foist it on him, are you?” Fuyumi asked, but I was already moving.

With a yank, I opened the door that was hidden cleverly in the wall next to the mirror. Then I stood in it, framed like a spotlight illuminated me, and smiled at the horrified prince. “And what do you see, Hideto?” 

The beautiful prince with the beautiful voice paled as his gaze raked me from head to foot. Part of me wished I knew what he saw when he looked at me, but another part was glad I didn’t.

The Cat That Reads Books

Two cats are part of my family. One is Buffy who I’ll talk about another time and she ran away when she saw I was taking photos, and there’s Bella. They are sisters and we got them from a cat rescue when they were kittens. They are 8 years old now.

Yesterday when I migrained, Bella’s view of things was that I should get up, take some medicine, and go sit on the sofa. Bella has a portable house which we set up everyday on the bed. So techinically I was in her spot. Since she kissed my hand until I agreed with her that it was important that I take care of my health, I got up. (Laughs.)

When I’m writing, she comes by to check on how I’m doing. Books are very important to Bella, and she reads them from every angle. She’s also fond of sitting on them.

Do you have a furry family member that inspires you and keeps you on track?

Friday the 13th by Stacy Hoff

Today is Friday the 13th! Conventional wisdom dictates that I should hide under the table. Regardless, I am feeling brave.

I’ve had a round of good luck in 2018. My horse racing romance, JOCKEYING FOR YOU, recently won the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence.

 

Plus, my latest work-in-progress, a dystopian “cli-fi” (climate change related sci-fi), just won the Diamonds in the Desert contest.

It also entered the final round in another contest, the Rosemary Award of Excellence. I’ll be biting my nails for another two-weeks until the Rosemary winners are announced.

Lastly, as a bit of good news, I’ll be signing books this summer. You’ll find me, pen in hand, in Saratoga Springs, NY on August 17th at a wonderful indy bookstore, Northshire! Save the date because I’d love to see you!

Gut Feelings

Somebody very wise once told me that the “feelings” we have—those stirrings in our gut about whether someone is good or not, whether something is right or not—come from years of experience and learning. Over time, I’ve learned too that these “feelings” can sometimes steer us wrong, depending on our evolution from child to adult (meaning we all have things we can now look back at and say “____ was wrong”).

This week for me has been one full of feelings. Strong feelings about somethings and indifference about others. Either way, it has led me to a time of reflection on how our gut feelings are formed, how important they can be as in the most primal of senses, these feelings are very much about our base instincts for survival. But as with many human traits, more astounding to me is our ability to begin to separate which instincts we will and should listen to and which we should learn to ignore. It adds a layer of complexity to the mix because many times, we don’t know until afterward, which was the better “voice” to heed. I guess that is why we can easily say “hindsight is twenty-twenty.”

But alas, life is not easy and we are destined to make mistakes rather than always choosing the correct “voice” or path. And despite this, I don’t think I personally would have it any other way. I’ve certainly learned from my mistakes and they’ve made me a better person. I also feel I’ve earned my way and that gives a sense of worth that I know drives me to achieve more.

So moral of the story this week? Listen to yourself and reflect on why it is you choose what you choose. It can take time but the lesson and internal growth is well worth it.

Happy writing this week.

RTC Goodies Coming In by Mandy Rosko

RTC is just around the corner, so is RWA now that I think about it :S

I’m still getting items coming in. The other day three T-shirts came in for preorders, and they are lovely 😀

Tonight I will be doing more book preorders, as well as gettingt he next 5K words ready for my next Patreon book.

I’m still waiting on the cover to come in from Yocla designs. I keep twitching on the edge of my chair waiting for it. The final book in the series and I’m super stoked to see what it looks like 😀

I’m still nervous for both conventions. I feel so underprepared. Buttons need pressing, I need to get my business cards in order, and there are still a couple more books that need to be shipped out to patrons before I can make the trip.

I’ll be streaming live on Twitch today doing my writing stream, and then later some Stardew Valley. I have to redo all of my progress since my save file went and died on me ;_; still have no idea why or what happened. I was super bummed out, but luckily the game is fun enough where I was able to get over it fairly quickly and get lost in the fun of it 🙂

 

Though I’m seriously hoping that does not happen again. Losing over 30 hours of work majorly sucks. Makes me nervous to do anything in RPG maker for my visual novel.

 

Which will be another project I will discuss with you down the road 😀

 

I’ll keep you posted on that one, just as soon as I find out how to back up my save files,

 

Hugs and happy reading,

 

Mandy

Heat Wave Paranormal-Scope

I’m having a heat wave. Keeping cool is a challenge. What do paranormals do in a heat wave?

While I am not qualified in any way to read neither stars nor planets, I am intimately linked to the paranormal in the world in many ways. So are you.

The paranormal-scope is for entertainment purposes only and is not meant to guide your life by.

The week for:

Aries:
The heat rises and the werewolf heads for a vacation with family and friends. Open your heart to those closest to you.

Taurus:
Vampires keep cool at the office away from windows. Be eager to take on a new opportunity at work.

Gemini :
Shapeshifters look to increase the heat in romantic relationships to keep that beloved one happy. At work, be professional and get agreements in writing. Listen to others for hot opportunities.

Cancer:
The Siren sings of love but promises nothing. How do you get past someone like that? Focus on your life goals instead and move forward.

Leo:
Pixies see hot weather as a reason for a shopping spree whether in cool malls or behind the computer screen. This is not the time. Set a budget so you don’t overspend.

Virgo:
Elves avoid the heat in cool glades. Even though your popularity is rising both at work and among friends, reserve some time for yourself in a cool place. Everyone will want to come with you.

Libra:
Faeries love surprises. Keep cool. Surprises are headed your way. Share with those you love.

Scorpio:
Dragons soar into the higher atmosphere to keep cool and meet with friends. Such meetings have advantages. Invite friends over to your place.

Sagittarius:
Mermaids dive deep for the cooler waters. You will meet someone that could help your career.

Capricorn:
Vampires cherish the cool nights. Time for you to party. You’re working too hard.

Aquarius:
Sprites steam forward toward success. Don’t give up on your dream. Charge ahead, but keep cool, too.

Pisces:
Weretigers love lounging in a lake or river. Find a cool spot and work on your career objectives. Write steps to help you along.
