Congratulations to Jim Webster on the release of not just one novella but two.. The first book is Swimming for Profit and Pleasure (The Port Naain Intelligencer)
About the novella
Benor learns a new trade, joins the second hand book trade, attempts to rescue a friend and awakens a terror from the deep. Meddling in the affairs of mages is unwise, even if they have been assumed to be dead for centuries.
An early review for the book.
The tale starts with a description of squid autopsy procedures.
Then, we find out how Benor learns the skill of deep sea diving, and running a bookshop.
The story soon develops into a ‘Benor needs to find and rescue a friend’ theme.
Luckily, Kara Halon (who works for The Purveyors of Magic) is on hand and joins him…

Check out this post from Staci Troilo’s blog announcing that The 2nd Emotion Thesaurus is LIVE!
Hi guys! Today I’m helping authors Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi launch their new book, The Emotion Thesaurus (Second Edition)!
You might know about The Emotion Thesaurus or even have it on your shelf. And if you’ve been reading my posts for the last couple of weeks (or many other posts by fans across the web), you knew this day was coming. I don’t know how Becca and Angela kept it a secret for as long as they did, but they’ve made a big splash with it recently (one I’m honored to have been part of), and it all culminates today.
The new and improved resource, The Emotion Thesaurus: 2nd Ed., is LIVE!
Your Favorite Book Is Now Bigger & Better
The Emotion Thesaurus is known for its powerful lists that help writers show (rather than tell) character emotion through body language, thoughts, visceral sensations, dialogue cues, and behavior.

Check out the book featured in the spotlight: Alonso Cueto’s The Blue Hour, from this post on the Confessions of a Mystery Novelist Blog.
Welcome to another edition of In The Spotlight. One of the tragedies of war is that it has an impact long after the guns go silent. The effects on individuals and families often hit the hardest. And stories about those individuals often have the potency that larger descriptions of, say, battles, don’t always have. Let’s take a look at that sort of story today, and turn the spotlight on Alonso Cueto’s The Blue Hour.
Adrián Ormache is a successful Lima attorney. He’s got a beautiful, intelligent wife, a loving relationship with his two daughters, and a solid career – in short, a perfect life. Then, everything changes. His mother, Beatriz, suddenly dies. That in itself is sad enough, of course, as they had a good relationship. But there’s more. He’s going through some of his mother’s letters and other personal things when he finds a letter that completely…

Check out the book, How Far is Heaven, by J.E. Spina, from this post on Janice Spina’s blog.
I wrote this novel, How Far is Heaven, under J.E. Spina many years ago before I retired. It was published in 2016. When I began writing it I cried to think of anything like this really happening to a family. As an author I took the liberty of portraying this family with so much tragedy and heartbreak that you too will be crying. This story came to me in a dream. Once I woke up I had to scribble down my thoughts before they were lost. I didn’t know how this story would end but it finally came to me as I typed away. Cover by John Spina. I hope you will enjoy it!
Please check it out on Amazon and read the reviews. Thank you for your support!
Parker and Priscilla Wilfork are happily married with two children. Life seemed perfect and peaceful…

Our Life In A Day
The rules are simple. Choose the most significant moments from your relationship – one for each hour in the day.
You’d probably pick when you first met, right?
And the instant you knew for sure it was love?
Maybe even the time you watched the sunrise after your first night together?
But what about the car journey to the holiday where everything started to go wrong? Or your first proper fight?
Or that time you lied…
