Have a great week!
Have a great week!
While I can’t say 2012 was my favorite year, 2000 is one of those I’ll always cherish! So, personally, I’m staying very, very optimistic about 2021 and beyond—especially with Father Time (ol’ Saturn) and everyone’s favorite celestial benevolent uncle (ol’ Jupiter) talking to each other again—this is time to expand, in particular your mind and possibilities! Let’s be honest, after over nine whole months of practicing these very things during lockdowns, we should be very good at this now.
But as usual it’s a mixed bag of news for most signs. Avoid them ol’ circles. If Saturn and Jupiter can move forward, so can you!
Happy 2021, and Age Of Aquarius! Except for my ol’ friend who’s still waiting on the Age Of Taurus! Never mind, your news is still good, El Toro!

A bumper post to make up for one I missed. I intended posting about some of these in November and didn’t!
This TBR Love is part audio with my new podcast—Way I See It. In the first episode featuring eBooks For Travelers, I discuss three books from series I’m currently enjoying. And as it’s a vacation time for most, I’m adding a few more recommendations that I meant to tell you about, too.
Why eBooks For Travelers? Whether on the move or in armchairs, ebooks are lighter by far and—I believe—more eco-friendly!Tweet
As usual, I’ll be concentrating primarily on indie-published eBooks. I explain more in this audio clip.

Shrouded (science fiction romance)
I confess, I was more intrigued by the cover than by the blurb as alien-themed romances aren’t really my thing. To my pleasant surprise, the story engaged me from Chapter 2. The Shrouded are an interesting culture contrasted against the morally corrupted world. I loved the whole idea of The Shroud and the navigation system. The plot-twists were at times predictable and at others very surprising and satisfying. The romance is well handled and believable. So, if you’re looking for a classic feel romance set on a mysterious, isolated planet with no superhuman powers—just a wise crystal—I highly recommend this read 🙂
Scratch Deeper (crime thriller)
This police procedural set mostly in Manchester, England, is fill of surprising twists and candor. The tension is expertly manipulated so it’s maintained to the end. Relationships also grew and changed in interesting ways and most characters are well drawn and engaging. The terrorist plot and attitudes of those in charge of the officers investigating is, sadly, all too believable. Iona Khan makes for a wonderfully tenacious investigator, one you know who—with the aid of her friend, Jim—will continue scratching deeper until they unearth the truth and perpetrators. A highly satisfying read.
Native Bones (crime, small town mystery)
This murder mystery, set in a small town in Arizona, USA, is the fifth in a series. I haven’t read any others in this series, but found it a satisfying standalone. Though my early guess as to who the killed was proved right, the characters and the quirks of this small county and Reservation proved addictive. The plot is well structured and pieces of superstition, belief, traditions and inter-cultural interactions make for a good weekend read. However, there were times when the repetition of some information proved a little annoying. Nevertheless, crime lovers and small town mystery lovers, as well as the modern Western readers, will want to give this story a look-see.
Come On, Steal The Noise (Holiday, crime, humor)
One of those quirky, fun reads, this makes for a different holiday read. Set in a country hotel in England over the festive weekend, Zoe needs to retrieve a cassette from a hacker for her employer. Her colourful gran, and her repressed sister are her cover which makes for some hilarious moments. Very, very British in its humour and look at festivities (yes, Slade is mentioned) this story is a great, light-hearted fill-in before and during the holiday period. Particularly, if you’re snowed in, or stuck with family dramas.
Have you read any of these books yet? What did you think?
That’s all for this month. Happy reading!

Enjoy! And have an awesome week!
So, I’ve been working on getting out my first box-set of stories out before the end of 2020. With the technical bugs that had to be sorted out on the epub, I had some time to finally mess around on Blender and get a video on the book out!
It’s my first video in forever (the last I edited video was on iMovie back in the early 2000s) so it was a steep learning curve.
I created the map visuals on GIMP and am so chuffed that both programs work so harmoniously together without crashing my system! Interesting fact, I also created the 3D box image on GIMP. More about that in another post.
Next stop, animation!
But only when I have the time:-(
Check out the video (and the book just published today) and let me know what you think. Is it too long? Would you watch it to the end?
Thanks, and happy creating!
PS. Routes To Love will be at a special price with $2 off from mid December 2020 to early February 2021.

So, Mercury Retrograde will be affecting some of us more than ever, others may take a sudden turn onto new paths, and some may be carrying more heavy energy than they should because: They.Cannot.Let.Go. (You Taurus, don’t you pretend you didn’t see it coming. The Ostrich Look is not for you) Or: They.Can’t.Allow.Flexibility. Or Adjust to a new way of doing things. (You, Scorpio! You know the definition of madness, right?)
Still, it’s the end of 2020! And many of us have good news, great news, and fabulous news, too! Let’s give the Taureans and Scorpios a bit of a helping hand—and Leo, too—spreading some good vibes around 😀
It’s that fun time of year again–fortunately with more degrees of woo than spookiness for me! So, I thought I’d do a Trick Or Treat style video again for YouTube, much as I did last year. It was a lot of fun as I also used charms and my own DIY Tarot cards.
The end of September also marked y second year of creating Pick-A-Card videos, so I did a commemorative video that kinda recreated my first major video: Clues To Your Future Spouse. I imaginatively entitled the new video ‘Clues To Your Future Spouse Too!’
Both videos are linked below for your enjoyment.
Happy Halloween and Beyond!
