September Social Splash – Win $100 Amazon GC

Note: This page takes a minute to load because the Rafflecopter is so large. It’s $100, though! Totally worth the wait. Go get a cup of coffee. I’ll be here when you get back.

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I was first sucked into introduced to Adopt an Indie and what has evolved into The Indie Exchange.  I saw a tweet with a suggestion to “Adopt an Indie” (and I still remember who sent the tweet, but I don’t think said tweeter is associated with TIE these days), and replied with, “Do I have to adopt one, or can I just foster a couple?” I ended up “adopting” four authors for the event, as well as writing a guest post. I have since learned that indie authors are like cats: You adopt a few and it doesn’t take long for all the others to find you. I’ve made some great friends along the way, though, so I think I’ll keep them. As long as I don’t have to clean up after them. Continue reading

Recipe: Egg & Hashbrown Casserole

I haven’t posted a recipe in a long time, and after spending all day fighting with computers in one way or another, my brain is not up to writing a review, so you get a recipe! I know. It’s so exciting! Hey, try to keep it down over there.

As far as I know, this is my own creation. I cobbled it together from a Pampered Chef recipe and several recipes I found online (because I didn’t have the correct ingredients for any of the recipes).

#BlogFlash2012 Day 27: History

I love history. Real history, not memorizing meaningless dates from a textbook.

I’ve always loved listening to older people talk about the way things were “back then”. I love reading memoirs written by those who grew up in a time I can only read about and imagine.

I love historical fiction. Someone who has much more patience than I ever could takes a real event (or events) that I may have never even heard of, throws in a few fictional characters, and suddenly history is alive for me in a way it never was in school.
