Well Phooey! February 2019 Sneaked in While I was Looking the Other Way.

This stunning banner was created by my good colleague and writer, Jacquie Biggar. That girl has a world of talent.

February 2019 Sneaked in While I was Looking the Other Way.

Boo-ya. I’m still trying to work out what happened between Thanksgiving and Christmas of 2018. I know I missed Christmas and New Year’s because I was sicker than a salted slug, melting all over the place. January wasn’t much better. Think: Hospital, nurses, a raft of doctors and a physical therapist. Then there’s the storm troopers in my family and my darling Keeper who insist I follow all instructions. Huh? Those things are piled up thicker than any book I’ve ever written. I put ’em in my TBR pile. Bottom of it.

Falling Leaves Giveaway~ Useful things plus an array of Great Books

Hello all of you awesome people and welcome new subscribers to Accent on Romance.

Before we get to the wonderful array of books and our special Falling Leaves Giveaway, which by my lights are super special, I want to introduce you to Morris, the Feral Cat.  He showed up on our back deck a few weeks ago, skinny and perhaps elderly, and hasn’t left. Won’t. He’s the spiritual image of another Feral, Big Red, who was with us for five years.  Big Red refused to come in the house during rain, sleet, freeze or flood.  He spent his old age lounging on a step railing. We lost him to a coyote.  Morris has his sweet personality, adores a belly scratch, and kindly grooms our fifteen-year-old house cat, Allie Mae. Happy Days on our back deck.

Book Talk ~ Pocketful of Bones

Pocketful of Bones

Brilliant. Inventive. Dark.

Telling you up front I don’t often talk out loud about books I read by my colleagues. Yet once in a while along comes a book that knocks my socks off.  Some indie-authored books I read show raw talent that need polish, although most are well-written and entertaining–which is what a fiction book should be. I’m a writer. I’m a published author. My stories are not going to set the world on fire or earn a million dollars. I don’t expect them to do so. But I know a story teller when I come across one. C.S. Forester is a story teller. His 126 page novel, The African Queen, that I first bought for 35c was made into an unforgettable movie. Canadian author Farley Mowat is a story teller. Even his non-fiction enthrall because they are so honest.

The Real Skinny on Artificial Intelligence

New Contraptions. Old Brain.

No, I wasn’t born under a rock, but I was born during the Depression which means I am not a Millennial. My kids aren’t even Millennials. What I am is O.L.D. and I’m trying to grasp artificial intelligence. An online dictionary says AI is a noun: the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. Also, AI can drive cars–which I’m not allowed to do, so that piqued my interest.

Lagniappe ~ A Little Something Extra

Lagniappe: A little something given by good measure. A bonus.

We all need a little romance in our lives. Kissed by a camel works for me. But once is enough.

Oh, my goodness. Tragedies abound since September. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria and two earthquakes in Mexico just flat out decimated parts of our American Continent. Add the awful event in Las Vegas, the raging fires in California and it just rips your heart out. We got a little hit by Harvey in my corner of Texas and are getting that put to rights. Now, along comes Nate and it is gonna snag a half dozen of my family. Just hoping they keep their roofs. I’m watching travel shows on TV showing many lovely beaches and islands I’ve visited–but most don’t exist now, and others along the Gulf Coast won’t once Nate rips through.
