Were Pugs Paranormal-Scope

Photo Courtesy by Matthew Henry on Unsplash

The Were Pugs have been petitioning me to have a Paranormal-Scope completely about them. Silly me. My first response was no. They hid my toys. Holding them for ransom.  I still said no. They ate all the cookies in the house. Then while I was watching Prince to calm down, they decided to sing along as the back up singers. All right. I told them they could have this Paranormal-Scope but, I wanted everything back. They told me they were sorry about the cookies.

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.

Aries:
You have a lot on your plate, but you don’t have to eat every crumb with a Were Pug in the house.

Taurus:
There is a scent of a new friendship or more in the air.  Were Pugs head into the kitchen for the new cookies. You are going to meet someone new. Bake more cookies.

Gemini:
Were Pugs love being in the spotlight. But it’s happening to you, too. Use caution with what you say and do.

Cancer:
Were Pugs love a schedule. Make one for yourself. This will keep you focused on work, deadlines, and finish those less than fun projects.

Leo:
Were Pugs love a good massage. Additional projects may pay off this week with more money. Don’t spend just to feel good unless it’s for a massage.

Virgo:
Were Pugs have seen misunderstandings escalate. Be a good listener instead and work on compromising with your colleages and family. Then give your Were Pug a biscuit.

Libra:
Spend quiet time with others especially your Were Pug. You may choose to do a spiritual exercise, meditate, or something that makes you feel spiritually connected.

Scorpio:
Socialize and join groups. However, your Were Pug will tell you, that it’s important to do one thing well rather than overwhelm yourself with too many small projects. One thing at a time.

Sagittarius:
A Were Pug has a very proud and joyful stride.  Walk in those pawprints. People are watching you that may influence your future.

Capricorn:
Were Pugs love to travel. Plan a day trip to a dog friendy place and enjoy the special companionship you share.

Aquarius:
Your Were Pug has been eyeing a new fuzzy bed. Check your finances. A small item that could make someone happy is fine. Avoid expensive things right now.

Pisces:
Scheduling your time will provide some me and Were Pug time, you really need. All work and no play, make you one exhausted friend.

Life is A River by Susan Hanniford Crowley

Photo Courtesy by Elias Maurer on Unsplash

Life is a river. For some it is a long journey to the sea. For others, not as long. Sometimes you get to the sea but not without being crashed against rocks and thinking you weren’t going to make it.

This year I have lost people dear to me. I have also struggled with my health, and I appreciate having such a fine hospital close by. When you’re in the hospital you can see yourself becoming well in increments. If you have an impatient and restless nature, it’s torture.

With all the meds, I appreciated my editor continuing on without me. I do have to say that no matter how dire your diagnosis, you must believe in yourself. You must be willing to fight for yourself and take to heart what the doctor and medical team tell you to do.

I had surgery on August 12th and stayed afterward for a few days. I don’t heal fast. This was the sunrise from my hospital room on the 15th. It had rained the night before and even though I am a hearing challenged person, I heard the thunder, saw the flashes of lightning and the stomping (not a patter) of raindrops on the hospital roof.

Going home again brought so much excitement that the pain was almost unnoticeable. Laughs. Almost.

So now while I recover, I write, promote my new book, and pack for the convention and booksigning in October at the Fall in Love with New England Romance Readers and Authors Conference. Below is The Vampire with a Blanket of Stars in Amazon Print and now in Kindle, too.

I always pack in advance, so I know just what I’m taking. Don’t you just hate the feeling that you’ve forgot something.

Life is a river. I’ve been through white water and falls and have found a whole new land inside me. I hope you are enjoying your river ride, too.

Time Lost or Gained

We live in a world of go, go, go! Lately, where I work has been going through a bit of a reorganization and while I know the end goal is more efficiency and better quality work overall, we are taking some time to get there. It really reminds me of how impatient we can all be (myself included of course). This shouldn’t really surprise me as it has been a reoccurring them in my life. I wanted to learn how to play the piano and once I found out I wouldn’t be playing Beethoven in a matter of week, I got frustrated. I tried ballet lessons but professed boredom after we continued to practice the same steps, class after class, we after week. As an adult, I can see the value of the practice and the importance of building a foundation. As a kid, all I could focus on was how I’d rather be playing outside or doing something I considered fun.

As an adult, I still find myself impatient with somethings, but for different reasons. I understand more about opportunity cost and I also understand the value of time lost. It’s an internal battle I wage because there are many times I believe that we as a society simply move to fast. We make things overly complex and we stress ourselves out. I still believe this but I also understand that this is a reality I live in. When it comes to my work and productivity, I hold myself to the highest standard. In my personal life, I’m willing to simply live a little.

Have a great week and happy writing!

Pirates Ate The Paranormal-Scope

Photo Courtesy by Alonso Reyes on Unsplash

Alas, Nights of Passion has been blognapped by pirates. There are tales indeed of pirates having supernatural talents or hiding paranormal natures. Arrgh and up the Jolly Roger. Let’s see what mischief they are up to. Hold on to something, mateys, we’re bound for a stormy ride.

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.

Aries:
Charlotte de Berry joined a ship dressed as a man in order to be with her husband. You know how it goes. He gets killed. She killed the man, and ends up as captain of the ship. Things will come to you if you work and stay out of the way of people with sharp swords or tongues.

Taurus:
Calico Jack loved the Bahamas and dancing. Jack is responsible for the black Jolly Roger flag of a white skull and two crossed white swords. You’re going to come up with some new ideas which will be to your benefit.

Gemini:
Anne Bonny was Jack’s wife. She was famed for her skill with the sword and her brilliant red hair. Take a look in the mirror. What not update your hairstyle!

Cancer:
Captain Kidd was betrayed by friends in high places. It all began with him doing them a favor. It all ended with a hangman’s noose. Be careful where you place your trust. Oftentimes, secrets are best kept secret by not sharing.

Leo:
Captain Jean Lafitte is best remembered for making an agreement with General Andrew Jackson. The general would secure a pardon for him and his men in return for their help in fighting the British in the War of 1812. Some good bargains are still out there. Keep your eyes open. Find out all the details.

Virgo:
Captain Charles Vane was renowned for his skills in navigation and ship to ship combat. Marooned during a hurricane, he was rescued but then turned in to the British authorites by his rescuer. Inventory your home. Do you have what you need in the event of stormy weather? Stock up now.

Libra:
Captain Bartholomew Roberts also known as Black Bart was one of the most successful of the pirates, taking over 400 prizes. Remember not all treasure is gold and silver. Wealth comes in many forms.

Scorpio:
Mary Reed, a widow, traveled to the New World to make a better life for herself. She met Anne Bonny and Captain Jack Calico of the pirate ship Revenge. Accept social invitations from friends. New friends are waiting to meet you.

Sagittarius:
Captain Henry Jennings was expert in attaining wealth and ships. When the British offered pardons, he accepted. It’s been said that he returned to Bermuda as a wealthy man to enjoy his last years with his family. Have you checked your finances lately? Are you putting away enough for retirement?

Capricorn:
Captain Samuel Bellamy acquired the greatest pirate treasure in recorded history. He became enamored of Maria Hallett known as the Witch of Wellfleet. Some say he left to find his fortune in Florida with the intentions of returning for her. Bellamy and his ship went down in a violent storm off of Cape Cod. Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today! This is important.

Aquarius:
Edward Teach also known as Blackbeard, though renowned for his terrifying appearance, never actually killed anyone. This goes to show that you cannot judge by appearances. .

Pisces:
Stede Bonnet was known as The Gentleman Pirate. He was always in the height of fashion. It’s time for a wardrobe overhaul.

Book Launch & Contest: Celebrating The Vampire with a Blanket of Stars by Susan Hanniford Crowley

I’m excited with the arrival of my books for the book signing in October at the Fall in Love with New England Romance Readers and Authors Conference. Presenting The Vampire with a Blanket of Stars in Amazon Print and now in Kindle, too.

This novel is the 3rd in the Arnhem Knights of New York series and features Prince Răzvan, the eldest son of King Maximillion Vander Meer of New York. What is it about?

Night fell with the snow. Vampire Prince Răzvan stood at a crossroads in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania. On that cold wintry night in 1938, something unseen spoke to his heart, and he led his companions into the forest. A flash of silver in the dark! A whisper to his heart so soft it ached!

Then he saw the gypsy encampment in the deep woods and knew they would take refuge there for the rest of the night. At first, she hid behind the others. But when she peeked out, his heart was lost gazing into the exotic blue eyes of the raven-haired beauty. He felt the excitement rushing through her blood like wine, making her reckless and wild. She should have been afraid of him. His dark visions of the future should have terrified her. Still, she remained spellbound by his gaze and would not turn away.

While the others slept, two hearts stood in the snow hidden behind a tree, watched by the stars. But it would not stay night forever.

Save the Date: The book signing will be Saturday, October 19 from 2 pm – 5 pm at the Holiday Inn & Suites Nashua, NH.

The Contest: One lucky commenter will win their choice of  the signed print book or Kindle ebook of The Vampire with a Blanket of Stars. To enter type, “I want Prince Răzvan”, in the comment box.  If you can’t manage the accent on his name, that’s okay. The contest with for US residents only and ends at noon Eastern Time on Monday, Sept. 9, 2018 and is void where prohibited by law. Good luck.

For the Love of Dogs and Human Connection

I have always loved animals. Horses, cats, dogs, hamsters, you name it and I love it. In light of that and in order to keep our home from becoming a complete zoo, my hubby and I restricted the species to Dobermans; our own, as well as a host of Dobermans we fostered for a North Carolina rescue we joined in 2005. Even after moving to New Hampshire, we have continued to foster one Dobie at a time for a local rescue. Over the years I’ve lost count of the number of dogs we’ve fostered, and the number of dogs we’ve had to let go to what rescuers call the Bridge.

Recently, we had to let our matriarch Dobie go, a dog we started fostering when she was 7 weeks old and adopted not long after that. It’s been a rough time, the pain and loss reflected not just in our human hearts, but also in the three puppy boys left behind.

Why bring this up in a blog post you ask? I write about our loss, not to depress you, but to illustrate how important this kind of pain is to our writing. My writing has been effected by her loss as I’m in the midst of pushing to meet the deadline for my next book. It sucks to not be able to curl into a ball and hide from the world, but I’ve realized that channeling my loss into my writing has been cathartic, and has helped me find the emotion that I sometimes struggle to express on the page.

Our characters can’t be like just us, and we don’t want them to be. As writers, we have to explore a range of emotions even those that make us uncomfortable or we struggle to understand. Only then can we more fully discover who our characters are and make them real to the readers so that they may see themselves in our stories. Touching the lives of our readers so that they feel seen, and heard, and understood should be the goal of every writer. By finding that level of connection we can better appreciate, not just the differences in the ways we experience the world, but when it comes to love and loss, how very much we are alike.

May Your Words Flow Freely,

Artemis

Labor Day Paranormal-Scope

Photo Courtesy by Henriette Welz on Unsplash

The lazy days of summer are coming to an end. Already stores are decorating for Halloween. My heart goes out to the lovely people of the Bahamas with Hurricane Dorian making a Category 5 landfall there. I know in Florida, areas were being evacuated. Wherever you all, please, be safe!

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.

Aries:
Elves are endlessly creative. This week extend yourself. New opportunities and ideas are coming your way.

Taurus:
Shapeshifters embrace their hobbies. It will energize you to do the same.

Gemini:
Faeries are removing clutter from their homes. Do likewise. If you have a tag sale, look up beforehand what some of your items are worth.

Cancer:
Werewolves enjoy hanging out with old friends. Make some new ones, too. This can make a difference in your life.

Leo:
Mermaids watch the boats being taken away. They wave with laughter. Change is in the air. This can be a very exciting time for you.

Virgo:
Yetis are filled with joy. They love the briskness of fall. Plan a trip or take a course on something you’ve always wanted to know.

Libra:
Dragons love chatting with those close. This is the time to make those relationships stronger.

Scorpio:
Zombies are packing for a getaway. They won’t notice you as you walk by. It isn’t you. They are just excited. Talk to a trusted friend or a counselor on how increase your happiness.

Sagittarius:
Sirens sing of distant lands. Add to your music collection. Go to a concert. Put some jazz in your step and see the good things in life.

Capricorn:
Ghosts float up, but they don’t get you down. Plan an event for family or friends. Take a “me” trip to refresh yourself before that date.

Aquarius:
Pixies are all abuzz. There’s nothing like an end of summer bash. Plan on meeting everyone at a hotel or resort. You need to relax. Resting means not doing dishes.

Pisces:
The vampire looks at the past, present, and future like a river floating by. He thinks of all those people special to his heart. There is someone special to your heart. Spend time with them.
