February Monthly News

I hope you all had a nice February, especially Valentines Day. 
Yeah, I know it's a Hallmark holiday, but I love Hallmark and I love holidays. 
Win, win!!
I also listen to the groundhog each year, though, I wonder why. 
It's a fight as to which groundhog to listen to and who is right, but Willie says we'll be seeing Spring sooner rather than later. I can live with that. I need spring to be sprung like it was yesterday.... 
So, so far in the "genre count", I'm liking YA a lot more than I thought. Seems to be the pick for me... wonder if the trend will continue?

Review:
Sex, sex and even more sex is all that surrounds this 38 year old virgin.
Halfway through the movie, I was regretting watching it and wished I could turn it off. I couldn't though and give a real opinion. What if it came together at the end and I missed it?!
Well, I didn't miss squat.
It had a great group of actors, doing decent acting, with just an okay story. Really, it just wasn't my thing.

#22: Men Don't Pee Straight - Rick Dean

(Affiliate link)


Chock full of male stereotypes that every spouse, girlfriend, and mother has always recognized but never fully realized, "Men Don't Pee Straight" provides a humorous outlet for the irksome habits of that man in their life.
Short but sweet, these cartoon illustrated pages take male stereotypes to a level of ridicule that is sure to bring a smile - especially for those who can smile at their own quirks.


  • Paperback: 44 pages
  • Publisher: Rick Dean Books (May 15, 2012)
  • ISBN: 9780615642154
  • AMAZON US
    AMAZON CA


Author Bio:
Rick Dean is a true study of human nature. By carefully blundering through one relationship after another, he has achieved an astonishing level of understanding and experience with how not to maintain a relationship. He enjoys sharing that depth of acumen (or at least what he would like to believe is a depth of acumen) with cartoon illustrated literature.



Review:
If you're looking for the perfect gag gift for a friend, this is for you.
I laughed at all the stereo-typical, yet true reasons for why men are the way they are. The author really sums it up nicely and in a way that'll have you in stitches.
I used to hate the toilet seat being up, but now that I have a better reasoning as to why they do it, which is also in connection to them not peeing straight, I will not complain again.
A humorous read all the way through, but very much so for adults only.

Marilyn and her husband of 38 years consider their children and grandchildren some of their greatest treasures and delights.




Review:
I'm a total diva!
I like certain things and I like things a certain way. It's not always my best trait though, so I decided to check out this devotional. I thought it might tame my inner diva a bit, or at least help me use it in a better way.
This book shows you exactly how to use your inner for good and not doom. Using bible passages, helped make connections in showing how you can hurt or help a situation with your diva-like behavior. Making that connection is what I liked best about the book. You can only fix what you fully comprehend. I feel like this book helped me see myself in a slightly different light. 
I'm sort of saddened it's over too. Wish this book went on forever.

Giveaway & Excerpt: The Maiden Lane Series - Elizabeth Hoyt


“I would be grateful if you stayed away from the Viscount d’Arque,” Godric said as he led his wife onto the dance floor. He mentally winced at his own stiff tone, but in this matter he could not seem to see reason.

She was his wife and he’d damn well not take her straying lying down.

She cocked her head, looking more curious than outraged. “Is that an order?”

He immediately felt a fool. “No, of course not.”

The music began, the movement of the dance drawing them apart before he could explain further. Godric inhaled deeply as he paced, trying to subdue the incredible wrath that had overtaken him at the sight of Margaret with d’Arque.

When the dance brought them together again, he murmured low so the other dancers could not overhear, “I know it’s hard for you, wanting a child, but this isn’t the way.”

“What way do you mean?” she asked carefully. Too carefully.

Nonetheless, he could do naught but answer truthfully. “With d’Arque as your lover.”

For a second her eyes flashed with wild hurt before she could shield the emotion, and he realized he’d just dug himself into a hole.

“You think I’m a whore,” she said.

A very deep hole.

“No, of—”

But she whirled away, caught in the steps of the dance. This time he watched her anxiously, this wife he knew so little about. Had Clara ever thought she’d been so grievously insulted, she would’ve wept. Or perhaps stomped off. He truly didn’t know because he never would’ve gotten into a discussion like this in the first place with Clara. The very idea was ludicrous.

Margaret in contrast held her head high, her cheeks flagged with a becoming rose color. She looked like a goddess enraged. A goddess who might, if they were alone, assault his person—the thought of which unaccountably aroused him.

When the dance brought them together again, they both opened their mouths at once.

“I never meant—” he began.

“You convict me without trial,” she hissed over him, “and on pathetically thin evidence.”

“You were flirting, madam.”

“And if I was?” she asked, her eyes widening dramatically. “If every woman who flirted in a ballroom were deemed a slut, then all but nuns and babes would be thus branded. Do you truly think I meant to start an affair with the viscount?”

He hesitated a fraction of a breath too long.

Her beautiful brows snapped together. “You are the most maddening man.”

They were drawing stares, but he couldn’t let this bit of outrageousness pass.

“I? I am maddening? I assure you, my lady, that you are the maddening one. I’ve never caused a scene in a public venue before in my—”

“And now you’re on your second,” she flung back.

A childish retort, but also deeply annoying, as she managed to get it off just before they were forced to separate. Which, naturally, gave her the last word.

Appreciating the Beauty of Fountains in Your Home

Image credit


A lot of people enjoy having fountains within their homes because the flowing water helps maintain a calming mind and plus, if you are an avid reader, it’s a nice background element to enjoy as well. If you love to design your home elegantly, you can always buy indoor fountains and install them in your home. Not only will they add to a calming interior, but this type of element will be nice to enjoy on that rainy afternoon when you desire to read a book in the library, surrounded by a fountain. Of course you can order indoor fountains and cherish the beauty they exude. So, take your time and explore a huge variety of indoor fountains that are available and then place this beautiful element in a library space.
Indoor Fountains Not Only Look Lovely in Libraries, but Offices too!
If you work from your home and you have your own office, don’t be skeptical about whether an indoor fountain will look good. In fact, many houses that have office spaces have fountains. The sophistication and perfection that they portray helps by providing their office a perfect touch of professionalism. So, even if you are a work at home mom or an avid reader, look forward to enjoying classic fountains inside your office room.
Always Choose Quality Décor Elements
When you buy new elements for your home, or revamp your rooms with existing elements, you should never compromise when it comes to quality. A cheap piece of furniture or less expensive decorative elements might seem like a great idea, but over time they will wear down more quickly than a quality piece. So, if you’re able to, cut down on your budget in other areas but as far as buying home decor items are concerned, stick with the best. Buy fewer items, but buy quality items such as beautiful indoor fountains that will enhance your home.
Outstanding quality products will always stand out from the rest and the shine that comes with them will allow them to be a glitzy focal point in your space. So design your home with flawless perfection because once these décor pieces are placed, your home will feel and look fresh and flawless simultaneously.
PaigeOne writes about a variety of topics – from fashion to interior design!

Giveaway, Excerpt and Author Interview with Michael C. Hurley


Hello readers!

Please welcome author Michael C. Hurley to the blog. He is going to talk to us about his book, Once Upon A Gypsy Moon, and even was kind enough to offer 2 lucky US readers a chance at a copy.

So first we will get to know more about the author.

A lifelong outdoor enthusiast, Michael Hurley has practiced law since 1984. He is the author of Letters from the Woods and several essays about "slices of life." He lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with his wife Susan and three dogs. Together they have four children.



Now, let's take a look at his newest book, Once Upon A Gypsy Moon.




Michael Hurley watched his world unravel in the wake of infidelity, divorce and failure. In August 2009, he was short of money, out of a job, and seeking to salvage a life that had foundered. Deeply in need of perspective, he took to the open seas in a 32-foot sailboat, Gypsy Moon. The story of his 2-year outward odyssey, deterred by rough weather and mechanical troubles, combines keen observation, poignant thoughts, and deeper introspection with glorious prose. 

Once Upon a Gypsy Moon also presents a rare and much-needed point of view on the familiar spiritual-journey narrative. It offers a star-crossed love story wrapped inside a rollicking good sea tale, but it also has something important to say to the reader about relationships, faith and disbelief, life and death, love and marriage, and what really matters.

Purchase at Amazon US or visit the authors' website.




EXCERPT
A Voyage Begins
I stepped off a plane at Baltimore-Washington International Airport in August 2009 and made my way to the traffic of cars picking up passengers on the street below. It was an easy flight from Raleigh. I carried no luggage save what fit in a small duffel held with one hand. Walking into the bright morning sun, I felt the still, moist heat that, for a period however brief every summer, makes Maryland seem like Miami.
My boat, a thirty-two-foot sloop named the Gypsy Moon, lay just outside Annapolis in a shipyard on the Magothy River, where I had taken her for major repairs six months before. The strain of thirty seasons of sailing since she first slipped her builder’s traces had taken its toll, and the work necessary to fit her out for an ocean voyage had taken five months to complete. I had undergone some less visible but no less critical repairs myself in the past few years. Now the Gypsy Moon was ready, and so was I.
My sister and her husband met me at the airport to ferry me to the boat, but not before the obligatory lunch of Maryland crab cakes and farewells to my brother and his family, who live nearby. In the past year and a half, while the boat was berthed in Annapolis, I had relished weekends sailing around the bay in places where, growing up, I had only imagined I might one day stand at the helm of my own boat. Here, in my middle age, I had sailed the Gypsy Moon under the shadow of the statehouse that was America’s Revolutionary War capitol and the place where my service as a legislative intern, at age eighteen, had convinced me never to enter politics. Back in these old haunts, I had fun reconnecting with family and friends and imagining the life I might have had here if I had chosen differently between job offers in two cities—one in Houston, one in Baltimore—twenty-five years ago.
But before long, my plans to prove Thomas Wolfe wrong about going home again ran into reality. A sojourn of three decades in Texas and North Carolina had made me more accustomed to the civility of southern manners and less tolerant of the edgy combativeness of life up north. It’s not just that the drivers won’t let you in on the road up there. I recall passing abeam of another boat on the bay near Baltimore and leaning over the rail with a smile, ready to exchange what in southern waters would surely have been a friendly hello, and being startled by a broadside of profanity in- stead. (I had dared to come close.) Dumbfounded, I could manage no reaction but to say “I’m terribly sorry” and tack. It seemed that a good share of the population between Washington and Baltimore had grown accustomed to living with their dukes up. I decided that there is more to the warmth down south than the weather. I was eager to be off again, aboard the Gypsy Moon.
Over lunch, I answered questions from my family that gently probed the perimeters of my plans. Nassau seemed far away and nigh unattainable, not just to them, but to me as well. It’s not every day, after all, that one ships out to sea alone. It sounded more daring than it was, yet I not only understood but shared their concerns. The open ocean is no trifling thing, even on the best of days.
I feel right at home at the helm of a sailboat, although I didn’t come by that knowledge easily. Growing up in Maryland, I was the youngest child by ten years of a divorced mother of four, spoiled rotten by my two older sisters, too young to know my brother when he was growing up, and all but abandoned at the age of two by an alcoholic father whose absence was most acutely felt in a boy’s unfulfilled dreams of grand adventure. The world of seafaring was the stuff of Hollywood—unimaginable, and far from me. As a child I lived my dreams on a much smaller scale, on creeks and ponds that I could reach on foot, in nearby neighborhoods, and on scouting trips with the aid of the fathers of other boys. It was mostly about the fishing back then, and the smell of wood smoke, and the authenticity of living life in the rough—however briefly, and never far from the ready-to-eat suburban comforts of 1960s America. Those truant days in the woods were wonderful furloughs, allowing my imagination to inhabit a world apart from teachers and tests. I loved the unsupervised freedom of it all.
But Chesapeake Bay and the sea that lay beyond were distant and more impenetrable mysteries, brought closer to me only occasion- ally when my brother, Jay, would take me and my sisters out for day sails aboard various dories and dinghies—some he rented, some he purchased, and one he had built himself. I distinctly recall the moment when the bow of a Rhodes 19 sloop, with my brother at the helm, plunged out of the mouth of the South River into the chop of the broader waters of Chesapeake Bay. What was once a horizon of trees and houses became nothing but water and the unseen possibility of whatever lay beyond. I looked into the small space of the cuddy cabin beneath the mast, just big enough for a duffel of food and clothes, and wondered what it might be like if we just kept going.
We didn’t. When our hour was up we pointed that fearless ship of dreams sheepishly homeward, paid for the time used, and drove back to the city on dry land. But the infection of that moment and others like it remained with me and would reemerge often years later, beginning with the time when I decided to “borrow” Jay’s fourteen-foot sloop and take her sailing myself.


AND NOW A FEW QUESTIONS

               Tell us the story behind the story. How did, Once Upon A Gypsy Moon, come to be?
The book started as a series of letters that I published for a small group of close friends and longtime readers. I had decided to make a solo, long-distance voyage aboard a leaking and aged 32-foot sailboat, the Gypsy Moon, three years after my twenty-five-year marriage had ended due to my involvement in an extramarital affair. Events along the voyage became touch points that I employed in writing about the crisis of guilt, anger, self-pity, fear and longing that I was experiencing. The book helped me to see where I had been, decide where I wanted to go, and express the universal need of every man and woman facing a similar failure or loss for understanding, forgiveness, and renewal.
From Chapter 1:
This book is partly an effort to work out the navigational problems of the heart—to find true north; to account for set, drift, variation and deviation and measure the time and distance run, that I might better know my position within what Tolkien called ‘some larger way,’ and that others might better find the lights to guide their own voyages.”

What is the message you want readers to take from your book?
I didn’t write the book especially for men, but I expect that my experience and what I have to say about it may resonate particularly with men who, like me, have made mistakes that have irrevocably changed their lives. We men are hard on ourselves and are prone to guilt and self-loathing. We hold on to the criticism about ourselves much longer than the praise, and we often refuse to accept that every guy around is just as imperfect as we are. On this voyage, I learned to face the fact that while I can’t undo the harm I caused my family, there is nothing to be gained by wallowing in it. Like a ship at sea, life will move on from your mistakes with or without you. It is better to be aboard and going somewhere—anywhere—than to be adrift in your regrets and going nowhere.

From Chapter 4:

“The idea—now so prevalent in law and politics—that there are ‘good’ people and ‘bad’
people and that ‘good’ people always do the right thing is a fiction of the childish mind. The wisdom of country songs notwithstanding, every one of us, since the Fall of Man, has been ‘the cheating kind’ in whatever area of life that holds for him or her the greatest temptation. Humility requires that we understand this, but it is more important to know that we are not defined by our mistakes. A ship’s wake tells you where she has been, not where she is going.”


What are you working on now?
I just finished my first novel—a romantic thriller set on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I am currently working on a proposal to submit it for publication.
