  1. Hey, looking forward to more entries! And results! See you on Friday, will you go with me, I want to go in early to hit Dutch Growers for some Leek plants!!

    1. Hi DF! Thanks for taking a peek 🙂 Please make sure you “follow” me if you’d like to get email updates when I write a new post. It’s fast, convenient, and it makes me look cool.
      We can definitely go in early on Friday, but you must promise to make me something delicious with those Leeks…

  2. Yep, I followed . . looking forward to the next entry! will call closer to Friday to see what time I will get out of work! Hey, nothing can ‘make’ you look cool . . . you just naturally ooze cool! Do you have a recipe for wheat free pastry? then I will give you the recipe for leftover turkey and leek pie, it’s a Jamie Oliver, soooooo good, then there is cock-a-leekie pie, baked leeks, et cetera, et cetera . . .

    1. I think I can just use a normal pastry recipe and sub in chickpea flour instead of the devil-wheat. It’ll still be a carb load, but at least I won’t feel guilty for committing slow-suicide. Turkey and leek pie sounds amazing! But now I’m intrigued by this cock-a-leekie business. Perhaps we can get together and scour recipes.

      PS I think our pastel paper is here, but I haven’t hit the post office yet. So we need to have an art date too.

  3. so looking forward to some art time! The ladies were asking me about the pastel paper,, I find pastels so much easier than watercolours . . . yet challenges are good for ya, right? I can’t pick up any parcels for you without your having signed a form saying I can, weird heh, post office, meant to be the meeting place of the community, now, it is sorry, can’t do that without written consent, nope, I know I know you, but, I still can’t give you anything, paranoid suspicion, is that how are communities meet now? So, I haven’t been sleeping well lately, may explain my rantings . . .

    1. And you, David in Maine. Thank you for visiting! I love your Haiku blog. I try to write haiku when I’m travelling, or when I’m stuck with my other projects. It’s a wonderful exercise for both the left and right brain, don’t you think? Mine never turn out a nicely as yours do, I’m afraid. But it’s a lovely art nonetheless. Thank you for sharing yours 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! I’m away from my computer right now but I’ll check it out as soon as I have an opportunity. I’m glad you’re enjoying my blog. I hope you keep reading 🙂

    1. Absolutely! I’m always open to suggestions. I have a good selection of SF classics on hand that I’m trying to work my way through. But I’m always looking for new reads (in any genre). What dud you have in mind?

      1. Well, to come clean – it’s actually my new novel, called ‘The Artemis Effect’. It’s character based rather than hard sci-fi, following three story threads of people coping with a crisis in different countries. It’s been out for about a week on Amazon as an ebook, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have some good responses, so hopefully it won’t be too painful to read! It will also be coming out as a paperback soon, so let me know if you might still be interested, and I’d be happy to send you a copy in whichever format you prefer. Thank you!

        1. Of course, I’d be happy to review your book 🙂 It sounds interesting. I’m always excited to support new writers (especially new SF writers, we’ve gotta stick together). I’m afraid I haven’t evolved yet, as a reader, to embrace the e-book. I’m a hard copy junkie. Please let me know when the paperbacks are available, and I’ll send you my mailing info!

          1. Yes, I am, absolutely! I will email you my mailing address. I can’t wait!

  4. Hi Cat,

    My name is Shelby Isaacson. I was unable to find an email to contact you directly, so I apologize for posting this in as a long comment. I am contacting you on behalf of Jared Sandman, author of five novels, the most recent, Blackstone, is a paranormal thriller of horrific proportions. We would be extremely appreciative if you would consider reviewing Sandman’s work. If you would like a copy of Blackstone, please send me an email (listed below). Thank you for your time and consideration. Also, if you would like to more information regarding Sandman and his books please check out his website, http://www.jaredsandman.com.

    Book Description:

    WELCOME TO BLACKSTONE

    Designed by a madman, built with inmate labor and home to the nation’s worst criminals, Blackstone Penitentiary was considered the Alcatraz of the Midwest. Over a one-hundred-year history, it amassed the more odious distinction of being the most haunted location in America.

    PAROLE WILL BE GRANTED

    No longer in operation and left abandoned; it awaits renovation for inclusion to the National Register of Historic Places. Spearheading the ambitious restoration project is Anthony Creighton, a caretaker seeking to unlock the reformatory’s long-buried secrets. He enlists four strangers to help in that mission, individuals who possess extraordinary psychic abilities. Along with a skeptical scientist, the group embarks on the first full-scale paranormal investigation of the notorious prison. Their goal: to confirm the existence of life after death.

    TO ANYONE WHO SURVIVES THE NIGHT

    Six guests. Ten thousand ghosts. And all of them fighting to escape.

    About the Author:

    Jared Sandman was born in Canton, Ohio, in 1985. He began selling his first stories professionally while in high school and wrote his first novel upon graduation. (That book, BLOOD MONEY, sits in a desk drawer where it will never see the light of day.)

    LEVIATHAN was his second attempt at the long form, which he wrote two years later, this was followed up by THE WILD HUNT, DREAMLAND and THE SHADOW WOLVES. His most recent novel, BLACKSTONE, was just released. He’s currently working on his seventh book.
    Thank you again for your time and dedication to the world of literature,

    1. I’d be happy to. I will send you an email with my contact info 🙂 thanks for reading!

  5. Hey, thanks loads for taking a look at my new blog, and what’s more for following me..really appreciated..and am so excited by your blog. I am attempting to write a sci-fi novel at the moment (is complete, at the review by friends / family stage), and so am about to enter the dreaded stage of recurrent rejections, ha ha. Will definitely look closely at your posts for motivation and inspiration. 😉

    1. Thanks for reading and good luck with your writing! You’re a great writer! I’ve been enjoying your blog since I found the link on Harsh Reality’s “Promote Yourself” link.

      Finishing a book is a hard slog. Every step throws new challenges at you, but every small success is so rewarding! Keep with it 🙂

      I’m trying to build up a network of sci-fi enthusiasts (readers and writers) so that we can act as a support group for one another. When your book comes out (and it will, I’m sure!) I will happily review it for you 😀

      Let me know if there is anything in particular you would like to see a post about, too.

  6. Thanks for the follow and nice to “meet” you. I’ve dabbled in writing sci-fi as well, but need to do some major re-thinking on that one. Congrats on your book getting published and looking forward to seeing some of your writing 🙂

    1. Sorry I missed this comment! Thank you 🙂 Sci-fi is fun, but not for everybody. It can be great for writing warm-ups even if you don’t want to focus on it for the rest of your writing!
