Bringing Good Cheer by Angela Rasch now on Kindle

Local custom has it that Benfield Academy's chances to make the state playoffs in football depend on the cheerleaders making all he players happy. The quarterback has proven to be a problem for even the most talented of them. These determined girls aren't going to miss their chance to look into the TV cameras and shriek, "Hi Mom!" - even if they have to add one more person to their squad.

Fortunately, one of the cheerleaders has a really cute, uh, brother...?

Welcome to M.Y.T.H. school

Starting soon, Bonnie and Melody will be joining a group of teenage magical creatures at a brand new school:

The magical youth training house AKA: M.Y.T.H. School.

Mundanes who go near will see the school name as the Micheal Yosef Tomas-Howe alternative school

And I am opening the school up to other authors. If you have an idea for a magical creature story that could be set in the school, please let me know!

Cherry Moone

Caution: 

Blog About: 

Author: 

Cherry Moone is a story I have been working on since 1996...and no...it's still incomplete.

The story is about a family that lives on the outside of town and life. It is based on life at my former high school and a lot of the dialouge (the car trip to school in chapter one, for example) is almost verbatim.

Ten Years of Bike

In terms of longevity, it seems my series on the trials and tribulations and occasional triumph of Cathy Watts, other wise known as Lady Cameron or the Dormouse Lady, has become something of a feature on BC, which I think readers only give kudos or make comments out of sympathy for the poor deluded author and her two cats - the fact that she talks to them (the cats--who else?) demonstrates beyond doubt that she's either barmy or a witch or even a barmy witch. In real life she's neither, or so deluded she doesn't notice.

Looking for Story

Long before I joined BC officially, I read a story that I've been longing to read again.

From what I remember of the story as a whole, the main character is a kid in either Middle or High School and is without his mother who "left" a few years earlier but it is found out later in the story that the abusive father had killed the mother and dumped the body in the septic system. I think at one point in the story the main character changes gender albeit I don't remember exactly how.

I hope that's enough for you guys to pinpoint which story this is.

Unaccounted Gains & Eve

The first two books in the Unaccounted Gains series are still available on Kindle (at a reduced price) whilst work continues on a new book.
https://www.amazon.com/Shiraz/e/B01M3YQLWV/ref=sr_ntt_srch_l...

There's one more chapter of Eve to come and that concludes Book 1 (properly this time!). There may be a Book 2 - but I have other priorities right now!

I Am Rosemary's Granddaughter Chapter 10: Had to Grow Up

Sorry, work and life has kept me from writing lately.

Chapter 10 takes its title from the song "Had to Grow Up" from the album "Life" by Aselin Debison,

While technically the song's lyrics have nothing to do with the story...if I could find a way to write lyrics based on the storyline...I think it would work.

Story note: Some parts of the the story are true...such as the part about the truck parked in the country...that did happen and we never did find the screw that was removed from the brake light casing.

I'll be gone and Psyren's Redemption

Hey, just a note, I'm not going to be in much the next week and a half. I'll be heading out for a long overdue vacation tomorrow morning.

Feeling Flackey because I am

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm not going to be around that much.

It is summer vacation, and my kids are demanding my full attention. I don't have that much time to review what I'm writing or spend time on the BC site these days. I think I'm going to return to writing another series in the fall.

In the meantime, I am going to be spending time with my family. Traveling around. Getting into trouble. Watching my kids get into trouble. And generally finding bail money. ;-)

I will continue to do solos.Just don't know how often.

Another entry in my Noise universe is coming.

Just wanted to give people who liked the start of my Noise universe that I had another idea come to me for a character. This may or may not be a one-off, I'm vacillating on whether he will end up substantially weaved in or not. He fits in perfectly with the spirits concept though this will definitely be intense.
I've got the ending mapped out, now I guess I just need to think backwards.

Eve

I was going through my files today and came across a folder I clearly hadn't looked in for a few years. I have six unpublished chapters which I will put together as a single story, it won't be a Book 2 but more of a conclusion to the existing book.

Tammy, meanwhile, is taking a break while I think about some new stories.

A gripe about English language usage.

I am getting very frustrated at the lack of spell checking on this site, (and others).
Do people not proof read and spell check before posting?

Lately in many of the stories I read I see the wrong word used or major spelling errors.
Now I am aware that not all people were brought up using the English language. But why not have a native English speaker go over the stories before submission?

I seldom see punctuation errors, which is good.

Wind of Change, last of the Elemental series now available on Amazon

WIND OF CHANGE

The third in the series 'Elemental'.
Actually, for those who know me, there might be further books in the series if demand is there.

Having put three novels up in a week, I am going to take a well-earned rest, and finish Torc 2!

Elemental Book 2 - Earth & Fire...now available on Amazon Kindle.

Earth & Fire is now available on Amazon. It is book 2 in the series of three, and Book 3 will be up by the weekend - hopefully. For those that are waiting for me to finish other series... Torc 2 will not be long and neither will the last in the William Knox series.

The paperback won't be long. They were put up at the same time, but never seem to finish reviewing at the same time.

Things can only get worse, so read as much as you can now!

'This is how it always is' by Laurie Frankel

This is a fictionalised account of real life. The author has a transgender daughter. It had very good reviews in the 'i' newspaper and on Amazon. I haven't read it - yet - but I'm sure I will soon.

It's available via Amazon so remember to buy it through BC so Erin gets the pennies.

Helpful hint:Bookmarks

Quite often I am asked to recommend a story. My answer is simple, just check my bookmarks. At the bottom of the story is the option to bookmark it. When I read one I like, I bookmark it. If that writer has more than one I like, I'll bookmark their collected works to save time. This really helps as my reading bookmarks don't take up my browser bookmarks and I've suffered from complete computer failure before. Have fun and enjoy the great works found here at BC!!

Sales are dipping, but new series on the way - Book 1 - ICE out now!

Hi everyone.
Things are pretty dire in the good old UK... and not just the political crap that has hit us recently. I refuse to say any more about that, but to say, sales have slumped and I'm aware that there is less money about.

However, I am please to announce that I have completed a series of three books.... The series is called Elemental and the first book ICE is available already as a paperback through Amazon, and hopefully within the next few hours as a Kindle eBook.

Another Milestone

I've just inched across another milestone: my first story to reach 10,000 hits, "John's Living Nightmare", just inched across today. It's the story with by far the most views, although very low (0.72%) kudoage.

2nd: The first four parts to "A Bikini Beach Summer" with over 5000 hits.
3rd: "BB: A Boy's Visit" with over 4000 hits.
4th: "The Family Council" inched over 3000 hits two or three weeks ago, IIRC.
5th: "Our Daughter's Prom Date" might reach 3000 hits in a few weeks.

Just a bit of trivia for y'all.

Wow!

I'm two for two now... Heh. Heh. I commented on a post by Erin, and as soon as I went back to the home page, my parable popped up as a "Random Solo". I just posted it, too. Gotta quit doing that. Too spooky... I'll be posting the Parable for yesterday in a few minutes (editing it now). Look for the Sunday's parable around noonish, and the 8th's around 6 pm, EST. That will catch me up for the month of June, I hope.

Tammie's Aftermath

Reading this chapter brought to mind a situation I encountered once. There was a potential assailant, and I realized that if he did not refrain very soon, I was going to do him. He was close enough, and an easy shot. My hand was in my purse, touching the instrument, a heavy revolver. Suddenly he got a strange look on his face and fled the scene. Threat resolved.

More Wildcat stories on the horizon

While The Wildcats story ends with Chapter Thirty next week, I'm having too much fun writing this tale to just let it go.

I'm in the process of rewriting the first thirty chapters and using our great team of editors to make it the best read possible. As I write, I'm adding chapters, more characters, and more details.

This will be given to Erin to publish on Amazon/Kindle. I want to support her efforts by giving any money to my team and Erin.

I hope to write a Jessica Jade story and many more stories about the Wildcats. Promise, LM

Simple question about BC

Okay, this may seem like a silly question.

I often go into my user profile to click TRACK to see if any new comments have been made on my stories, stories I have commented on, or blogs I have commented on too.

Today, like on other occasions, I see in red 'Updated' and no new activity in that story or blog in the way of comments.

When there is no activity as in new comments or edits I have made to a story I have written and I see a red 'Updated,' what was updated?

For example, I saw it on my Wonder, Woman? story.

a step back from the edge

Not for the first time, I have been reminded of the value of friends.

Thanks to several friends, I cried some tears, and then began the long slow slog out of darkness. I finally realized I was indulging in self-pity as well as self-punishment, and neither is healthy - or warranted.

To get myself further back from the brink, I decided I needed a distraction, and so went to see the movie Wonder Woman, which was excellent.

My deepest thanks to all who sent me messages of support.

Huggles for each and every one of you.
