"One of my bitches gave birth to a litter of mongrels. Before, they were too young to tell. But now... Well, I'd hoped for purebreads."
"Are we speaking of dogs or women?"
"Which would you prefer?" He gave her an impish grin.
"Oh, hush up," she hissed, and he chuckled.

  8. The cover looks really "bad". I have not read any of Sarah's work, but that cover alone would make me give it a shot.

  13. That is a funny passage. Mine is much tamer. It came from the newly released Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography by Laura Ingalls Wilder and edited by Pamela Smith Hill.

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  17. I keep seeing this book being touted but I have to say that quote didn't win me over either. I didn't find that even remotely amusing. Sorry.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void.
