Linda G. Hill

It’s Thursday, and our contest is closing with six designs in the running for our 2017-2018 Stream of Consciousness Saturday Badge. The winner will have his or her badge displayed both here and all around the Internet by whomever participates in the weekly SoCS prompt.

I would normally post the outgoing badge here, but as it turns out, it’s in the running again. Therefore, I’ll let you visit John’s blog to have a look at it.

A Public Apology to Myself

A very powerful public apology to a person I respect and admire very much.

Annette Rochelle Aben

Dear Annette,

I want you to know, that I am sincerely sorry for not treating you better. For not seeing you as worthy of honor and respect. For not being more supportive in those times when you needed me the most.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

I am delighted to say that Volume Two of What’s in a Name: Stories of Life and Romance is now live on Amazon and shortly on Smashwords in EPub.

The theme is still related to the names that we are given.. In the first volume the stories were about people who were given names that were already famous or had significance within a family that they felt they needed to live up to.

In this volume the names are ordinary but their owners are anything but.

There are 16 stories and a bonus story to promote a new collection of stories in 2018.

About What’s In a Name – Volume Two.

Our legacy is not always about money or fame, but rather in the way that…
