Part 1: Lost Beginnings of the Fairy Races by Horatio Grin

In talking about fairies, we need to distinguish between the two types in popular imagination. The first are nature sprites or elementals, supernatural beings outside the scope of this discussion. The others are fairies of myth and legend. Tales as far apart in time and place as China and the Celtic fringe, speak of fairies as human, despite their extraordinary magical abilities.

When analysing fairy magic, much of it involves fooling mortals into seeing what is not there. Fairy gold turns to ash; palaces become caves or hovels; and splendid feasts, unpalatable muck. While the fairies…

How to back up your WordPress blog. Excellent advice!

suzannebowditch

So here are some easy steps that will prevent that and ensure you have a back up in place.

Cover Reveal: Delilah is coming!


Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]

Beguiling DelilahRomancing the Guardians, Book Six will be released by late June or early July. This installment of the paranormal romantic suspense series required extensive research since most of it is set in France. I’ve enjoyed learning more about Paris, where the story opens, and the breathtaking Côte d’Azur in the south of France, where Delilah and her hero flee in their rush to escape their enemies. Can’t wait to set this puppy loose!

If you like sexy romance, adventure, suspense and flashes of the supernatural as much as I do, I think you will enjoy this series. To catch up with the other Guardians and their loves, just click the covers and sample their stories on Amazon.

Notes from a small dog – On duty


Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

There’s something wrong with the two-legs. She’s not broken exactly, but she’s not working right. I keep having to remind her about impotant things… like my dinner.  ‘Off colour’ she calls it… I thought that only happened to the fish when they go weird, but no. This time she’s right…she is a funny colour.

Normally my two-legs is sort of pale pink. Well, she calls it pink. I wouldn’t … more like an earthworm or that pastry stuff she makes. By this time of year she is normally browning nicely with the sun, but well… she’s looking more sort of undercooked at present. Most of the time anyway.

Till evening comes and she gets weirder…

It’s not the heating…she turned that off ages ago, even though it isn’t very warm yet. I was glad about that though, ’cause it was playing havoc with my spring moult, you know… hair falling…

An Interview With Zoe The Fabulous Feline

An Interview With Zoe The Fabulous Feline


Fun, lovely interview with a beloved feline.

Aoibha Walsh

Q: Hi Zoe, how are you today?
Hello, Aoibha. I’m pretty excited, actually. My human’s been away and she just got home. I’ve missed giving her little love bites! The male human we live with is ok, but his skin does not taste as good as Emily’s. And he’s not as soft, either.
Q: Where did you get your fabulous name?
I first met my human when she came to the animal shelter with her daughter, who had gone there to adopt a cat she’d seen online. My human was just going along for the ride, but her daughter was pretty wise; she brought along two cat carriers…to pick up one cat. I spied Emily looking at me and gave her a fabulous grin. I was tweaking and rolling around and being very playful as well as vocal. She turned her back to me to talk to her daughter for…
