Today I am blogging at Carina's blog about Dark and Disorderly. I have three posts, up at morning, noon and night, that include an excerpt and some context, setting and backstory.
Since I am a total techidiot, my darling Kas, ie. K.S. Augustin--whose science fiction romance, In Enemy Hands, will be released June 7th-- uploaded the requisite pictures for me. Essays about her novel were posted on the Carina blog back on May 2.
I hope you will find time to drop by.
D&D is up on Amazon for pre-order at $6.79 in Kindle edition but without the cover and other stuff for the moment. I suspect there are Amazon things for me to learn about!

This Memorial Day I want to mention 4TROOPS, a new quartet, one girl and three guys, all ex-military, who perform in support of military charities. They have that rare, pure blend of sound that makes one want to weep.
A Hidden Magic, an urban fantasy by Angie (Angela Benedetti.) Visit Angie for links to Torquere and to read an excerpt.

More from the Ello Basket:
Muscat Gummy Candy. Heart-shaped, translucent green. Delicate true taste.
Gummy yummy. Addictive. Gone.
At physio Friday I thought the therapist was a little too knowledgeable about medieval torture techniques. The reference to the rack when he strapped me to the traction machine didn't bother me. "The rack" must be a common comparison/cliche in his business. I was good with that. But when he added, "If you're not taller after this session we'll have to bring in the horses..."
And a BTW:
This is my 1,000 post.
