Life Tools: Turn on the Light By Susan Hanniford Crowley

This particular November has been very hard with illness and a cold that seems to blow through you. These are the times when you learn to rescue yourself.

I have said many times that you are important, and you are. A single person can make a difference. It is an odd thing that sometimes what a person does outlives him.

Vincent Van Gogh did sell some of his work during his lifetime but not enough to escape death in poverty. Some of his friends were already famous, but he was unknown. Today he is considered one of the most famous and beloved artists in the world.

Emily Dickinson wrote for herself. Only a few of her poems were read by others. Emily struggled to force those few into the accepted structure for poetry at that time. She even left wishes for her remaining work to be destroyed. But the family member that read them couldn’t bear to do that. 1,800 of her amazing poems exists today.

Galileo Galilei is the father of physics and invented the telescope. His concepts about our solar system were revolutionary for his time but they went against the accepted religious beliefs so his life was more than troubled. The Inquisition found him guilty of heresy. He had to recant his scientific findings and spent the last years of his life under house arrest. What do you do when that happens? Write down everything you know, of course. He persisted and his work survived him.

Leonard Cohen wrote and sang many songs but the one that everyone knows is “Hallelujah.” Other singers have covered it but most people remember the version Jeff Buckley sang. Jeff had a multi-octave vocal range and did such a stirring performance of the song, that other singers wanted to sing it too.

I could go on about all the people who have done great work during their lifetimes that were relatively unknown to the great populace.

As we go through our daily lives, we don’t know what we’ll do, say, discover, or inspire in someone else a deed that will make a difference to the whole world. We just live our lives. That’s what makes each one of us important.

I know during this bleak time toward the coming winter, it’s tough emotionally. I’m posting these numbers to use if you need them or if someone else does.

The 988 Lifeline

“988 is now active across the United States. This new, shorter phone number will make it easier for people to remember and access mental health crisis services. (Please note, the previous 1-800-273-TALK (8255) number will continue to function indefinitely.)” You can call, text, or chat 988.
Their website is: https://988lifeline.org

Life Tools: Inspire Yourself and/or Inspire Others

  1. Encourage a person who is doing a great job. Compliments are like a hug to the heart.
  2. Indulge in your favorite activity and join an organization that does that activity too.
  3. Never compare yourself to someone else. Henry David Thoreau said, “Life isn’t about finding yourself; it’s about creating yourself. So live the life you imagined.”

*

This is a thought for all of us when faced with darkness!

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” — Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

Giving Thanks

This has been a trying year to say the least, kind of like the last two years of dealing with Covid have been difficult years. Still, it is during these times that I believe it is important for us to be more cognizant and thankful of what it is that we have, and for me personally, I truly feel like both myself and my family have been very blessed. I’m not going to pretend as if everything is a walk in the park each day because it’s not. But overall, we have more to be thankful for than not.

My kids are always asking me the worst and best of everything. What is the worst memory I’ve ever had? What is the worst dream or the best dream or the best vacation or the best food… You get the point. Perhaps this is a copout, but I always remind them that there is always something better or something worse. The last two years have been a reminder of this.

So be thankful, not because you have to but because you want to. Forcing ourselves to think about our blessings is a helpful exercise and goes a ways to lightening one’s mood.

Happy writing this week and Happy Thanksgiving!

In Search of Warmth Paranormal-Scope

With the progress of autumn falling asleep in North America, the wind starts to howl deep in the night and blow cold over the land. Snow is expected. Stay warm!

While I am not qualified to read either stars or planets I am intimately linked to the paranormal in the world in many ways. So are you.

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

Aries:
Most hobbits shut their doors against the wind, but the rare few smell the excitement of an adventure brewing. An opportunity will arise for travel and learning more about who you are.

Taurus:
As werewolves go down a snowy trail, they find someone who has already passed this way. Time to get advice from someone you trust that knows the lay of the land.

Gemini:
Dragons soar and find friends touching wing to wing. This is the time to embrace the ones that love you.

Cancer:
Pixies know only you can change yourself. Focus on making a plan for a better life.

Leo:
Mermaids love self-expression. They sing and have been known to paint with their tails. Indulge your creative talent.

Virgo:
Elves love traditions and rituals. They record their lineage for the younger generation. Delve into family history or create a new tradition.

Libra
Faeries fluttered here and there with excitement in the air. You have many choices from traveling to working on new projects to taking a course or simply visiting a friend.

Scorpio:
Shapeshifters care not only about the shape they are in but the shape of their home. Time to give away those things you no longer need.

Sagittarius:
Centaurs are spending more time in meditation and reflection. Self-care is at the top of their list. Do the same.

Capricorn:
Vampires can become homebodies. You are becoming too reclusive. Get out more if you can. If you can’t, put that creative energy to use with making plans.

Aquarius:
Ogres really do have many layers. They volunteer in the community and go on trips. You will have the opportunity to make some new friends.

Pisces:
Gnomes usually think of their home life. This is the time to go beyond that. New friends and new adventures await you.

Enjoy life and be safe.

A Writing Tool & Life Tool: Proofing & Lists By Susan Hanniford Crowley

Cover by Cindy Samul

Tis the season for everyone to be overwhelmed. There is just so much to do.

Where I live there is storm preparation. You want the yard tidy and outside items stowed so they are not picked up by winter winds. A dead tree leaning toward the house needs to be taken down.

I need to shop not only for particular foods but also for gifts. We have a lot of birthdays, and an anniversary too, in addition to holiday gifts to get.

So in the midst of all this, I am doing the final preparation before sending my novel back to the editor for formatting. I am doing a read-through and proofing. I am finding typos and missing words even though this book has gone through so much editing, they escaped.

Writing Tool: Proofing

  1. Sit quietly with no distractions, especially tv, and read it. Keep a pad of paper and pen at hand to write down the page number and sentence, circle the error, and write the correction underneath.
  2. Do the above but on your computer. Keep open the document on one side and a new page to type on.
  3. If something strikes you as off, read it aloud.
  4. It is always better to have a 2nd proofer.

Life Tool: Lists

  1. Make a list of things to do around and outside the home and put it on the house bulletin board or the fridge.
  2. Make a list of each person you are gifting and the type of gift (Birthday, Anniversary, and Holiday). Put it where you have constant access to it.
  3. When you have achieved your list, buy some gifts for unexpected holiday guests. Also, don’t forget the newspaper and mail persons!

*

Enjoy those happy moments that life gives us.

Truly,

Susan

For The Love Of…NaNoWriMo 2022 Raw Excerpt by Artemis Crow

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is marble-crow-logo.jpg

I’ve been rocking and rolling through the month, and I can’t believe we’re just over the halfway point. Wheee!!! I wanted to share the raw (and I do mean raw as a cow standing in a pasture) opening for Virgo’s Touch, book 12 in my Zodiac Assassins series. It starts exactly where book 9 left off. I hope you enjoy!

 

The first arrow struck Virgo, sending him to the ground. He rolled to his side and watched the rest of the Zodiacs get felled.

A bright light appeared in front of him, a tiny ball of shimmering light just a couple feet away from where he lay. The pain is so bad it must be messing with my vision.

He watched the light swirl and grow until it was as wide as four men standing abreast. The swirling light began to pulse faster and faster; purple and pink and green and gold mixed in with the white like a damn Stargate had been activated. Yeah, I’m delirious.

Virgo wrapped his arms around his waist. He’d never heard of hallucinations when dying, but what else could this be?

He heard a muted scream, and a woman leaped out of the light, landing on top of him with an oof. The force of her body hitting the fletching end of the arrow sticking out of his chest drove the sharp head through him and out of his back, pinning him to the ground.

He stared at her, on the verge of passing out from the pain. “Who the hell are you?”

The woman shoved off of him, rolled to the ground and sat up. She pressed her hands against her chest and looked down as if expecting to find a wound, but she appeared to be uninjured. Unlike Virgo, who wondered how he was going to survive getting the arrow out of his body.

She ran her over her chest then waved her hands over his chest, a frown pulling down the corners of her mouth. “I’m Regina. Who are you?”

“I’m the guy stuck to the ground like a dead bug pinned to a display board, no thanks to you.” Virgo raised his head to stare at the arrow’s shaft for emphasis. “What the bloody hell?”

Half of the shaft, no all of the shaft length that should have been sticking out of his chest, was gone, sheared off cleanly as if a sharp blade had cut it. He ran his hands gingerly over his open flesh. The end of the shaft was barely visible, but it was there—he wasn’t that lucky—and it meant he still had to find a way to get off the remaining shaft.

The woman looked back the way she’d come. “The portal. It’s gone.”

The desolation in her voice distracted Virgo from his immediate predicament. “Portal? Are you Fae?”

The woman, Regina, curled her lip in a laudable sneer, turned her head and spat on the ground. “I’m Memoria. Answer my question.”

“I’m Virgo.”

That caught her attention, her stare piercing him as surely, but not as painfully, as the arrow. “One of the Zodiac Assassins?”

He raised his left hand and pointed to the other felled men scattered around him. “Yes, and so are they. Can you move on from this inane conversation and give me some help here?”

May your words flow freely,

Artemis

Lesser of Two Evils

I go about my life as I please. I’ve never truly been anywhere that I am not welcome. Sure there are some places where one may not feel as safe as others, but I’ve never been made to feel like I don’t belong or that my own survival is at risk.

This week, I spoke with a friend who is considering fleeing her country. I know it happens all over the world. People looking to escape atrocities, war, or simply looking for a better life. Those who have been displaced due to famine and genocide.

My first reaction is to talk her out of running. Why? It is risky and I fear she might not survive. But then when I consider her reasons for fleeing I realize she may very well be choosing the lesser of two evils. It is a stunning consideration and another confirmation that for all the hardship I find in life, I still live a charmed life compared to many others. It doesn’t mean that my feelings are invalid, but it does put situations in perspective.

For now, I only wish my friend safety for whatever she decides. And for the rest of you, I wish you an inspirational week of writing

A Hidden World Paranormal-Scope

Photo by Pedro Cunha on Pexels.com

Trees are bare and look black in the moonlight. November becomes a shadow world with the diminishing day. It is up to us to make the most of daylight hours and cozy in when the night brings blustery winter winds.

While I am not qualified to read either stars or planets I am intimately linked to the paranormal in the world in many ways. So, are you.

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

Aries:
Dragons put their attention on their cave to make it warm and cozy away from the mountain winds. Time to look around and consider making your home feel more comfortable. Blankets are nice.

Taurus:
Werewolves are gathering the pack for a great feast and fun time. Start your planning now.

Gemini:
Goblins are going over the balance sheet. Make more frugal purchases. Get only what you need.

Cancer:
Pixies are sad the gardens are done. They are looking grim and hiding away. Call a friend who could use a friendly voice.

Leo:
Elves love books of all kinds. Collect a few new volumes, movies, or music. Choose whatever makes you happy when the night is dark and stormy.

Virgo:
Mermaids are going into the depths. The seas are rough and getting rougher. Consider getting extra food and emergency supplies.

Libra
Faeries love this change in the season. They dance between raindrops and snowflakes. Time to change over the closets and make seasonal wear handy.

Scorpio:
Centaurs love to run and keep up their exercise. Consult with your physician about the kinds of exercise best for you and what to do instead when there’s inclement weather.

Sagittarius:
Shapeshifters are shining at work. People are starting to notice the quality and your upbeat nature.

Capricorn:
Vampires are eager to take a bite out of life. You’ve been reclusive long enough. It’s time to get out and experience life. Pick an event you want to attend this weekend.

Aquarius:
Gnomes are smart when it comes to self-wellness. Stress is at high levels for everyone. Meditate. Contemplate. Take a bubble bath or a nap. Do things that make you happy and relaxed.

Pisces:
Ogres have their good side. Sometimes it takes time to find the other side, but you have a gift at seeing the inside of a person’s heart. Get in contact with friends.

Enjoy life and be safe.

Good News, Contests, & Cover Reveal! By Susan Hanniford Crowley

Cover by Cindy Samul

A lot is happening all at the same time.

Personal Cancer News

I visited my oncologist Thursday, and I am relieved and happy to celebrate 3 years of being free from breast cancer. It is 5 years before you are officially called a survivor.

I want to tell you that I had a mammogram 6 months prior to finding the tumor more rock than lump on Christmas Eve 2018. It was underneath where it would have been on the edge of the machine and not seen. It was a fast-growing type, so waiting for the next year’s annual would have been bad news. Self-checking every day could save your life!

You are important, so please, self-check both standing and laying down and underneath, and if you find something get your doctor right away. Don’t wait even months to see a doctor. I started out Stage One and by the time the doctors had gotten back all the tests in January, it was growing toward Stage Two. This shows you how fast cancer can grow.

You are important, so treat yourself that way! Cancer is an urgent matter!

Contests


I have three contests happening over on Facebook in the I Love Romance Books! Group. Go on over there and enter https://www.facebook.com/groups/262774088092512/

The contests closed at 12 noon Eastern Time! They are for Kindle ebooks and for people in the US.

Cover Real and Blurb:

I am also happy to reveal the cover of EverNight, EverWarm’s sequel, a sweet romance for ages 13 to 113. This will be coming out before Christmas first on Kindle and Amazon paperback.

For your enjoyment, here is the blurb:

Blurb:

Maya Angelou said, “The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”

*

A year ago in a dark alleyway in Manhattan, twenty-four homeless people were murdered by a savage vampire and his apprentice.

Sixteen-year-old Maeve had been living in a cardboard box in that alley. Her only thoughts back then were how to find food and stay warm. She was not there when they came.

Now, she stands in a cold rain, alone in the night mourning her lost friends. Though Maeve lives with her boyfriend’s parents and attends a private school, she is troubled and longs to have parents and a home of her own.

*

Last Christmas, sixteen-year-old Mike met Maeve in front of a store window with an animated ballet display of The Nutcracker. He was entranced by her red hair and green eyes. When she ran off after he invited her for hot cocoa, Mike tried to follow.

Instead of finding Maeve, he was murdered by the savage vampire. Later, he woke up in the morgue with memories of her weeping for him. He didn’t know what to do. He was a vampire now. Mike did the only thing he could do. Find Maeve.

Now, Mike is heartbroken. Maeve wants to move out of his family’s home. What if she moves on and away from him?

*

According to Max Vander Meer Vampire King of New York, there is something evil in the wind.

*

Enjoy those happy moments that life gives us.

Truly,

Susan

A Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse Paranormal-Scope

Photo by Pedro Cunha on Pexels.com

For Connecticut viewing hours, the eclipse will start at 3:02 AM. The total eclipse will be 5:26 AM and will be at the maximum at 5:59 AM, when it is close to the horizon. It will look all red. The moonset will be 6:37 AM, with the ending of each part of the eclipse happening before the horizon. I recommend a porch seat away from lighting, a blanket, and some cocoa.

While I am not qualified to read either stars or planets I am intimately linked to the paranormal in the world in many ways. So, are you.

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

Aries:
Vampires don’t like to share and aren’t the ones to bail you out when you’re in trouble. You would benefit by maintaining a low profile and watching your expenses.

Taurus:
Werewolves love the moon. This is a good time to team up with colleagues to get the job done.

Gemini:
Elves know how to shine. Focus on work and you will shine too.

Cancer:
Faeries enjoy the company of friends. Plan an event to invite friends over.

Leo:
Goblins love balancing their work life with family life almost as much as they love keeping track of money. Balance helps reduce stress in one’s life. Consider this.

Virgo:
Pixies are easily distracted. You might struggle to focus on work, try harder to get the work done. It will benefit you in the long run.

Libra
Mermaids sing to the sound of the surf. Indulge in your hobbies. Have fun and relax for a change.

Scorpio:
They say if only Medusa had a great hair stylist then her life would have been different. Update your appearance to make you happy.

Sagittarius:
Dragons are great secret keepers. Some secrets are better off kept. You will be entrusted. Honor that trust.

Capricorn:
Centaurs are known to have generous hearts. With large expenses coming up that require saving, volunteering for a good cause would be better.

Aquarius:
Ogres have limits. They do not enjoy others encroaching on their property. Setting limits work in all aspects of life to achieve balance.

Pisces:
Gnomes make cookies and lists. They plan out the steps to achieving their dreams. You can do the same.

Enjoy life and be safe.

Life Tools: Enjoy Life! By Susan Hanniford Crowley

We have gotten to that time of year. It’s getting colder where I am. Believe it or not, we’re doing a lot of cleaning and getting rid of things.

I’m also giving a final look-see through EverNight, Young Supernaturals of New York Book 2. I’m excited and a cover reveal will be happening on Friday, Nov. 11, 2022, on the I Love Romance Books! Facebook group. Be sure to join us! I’m excited.

Enjoy those happy moments that life gives us. Go out and have fun or sit by a warm fire! Do those things that make you happy.

Truly,

Susan
