A World Without … Books?

A World Without … Books?

Sometimes I think about how awful it would be to live in a world without books. Usually it’s a result of watching TV and seeing old footage of people burning books.

But then I reach for my Kindle, admire the towering digital-to-be-read pile that awaits me there, and forget about my concerns. After all, even if every print book on the planet disappeared, we’d still have our digital copies to read and pass on to future generations. Right?

Or would we? To read the rest of this post, join me at the Women Unplugged blog.

Have a happy Easter, everyone!

Fool’s Gold Anthology with Baby Fever by Sheila Seabrook

Fool’s Gold Anthology with Baby Fever by Sheila Seabrook

Welcome to Book 15 in the Bandit Creek series, an anthology titled Fool’s Gold with the short story Baby Fever by Sheila Seabrook! Yep, that’s me. This is the book everyone’s been waiting for. Well, I’ve been waiting for it. 🙂

I loved writing the story BABY FEVER. The two middle-aged, baby-hungry mothers were so sweet and cunning. Plus, the story gave me the opportunity to introduce the heroine, Liz Templeton, from my upcoming story WEDDING FEVER. I’ll be posting the cover for WEDDING FEVER soon, so stay tuned.

Prior to publication, I had an opportunity to read the stories included in the anthology and they’re all super. If I had to pick a favorite … well, I can’t because they were all so good!

Included in the Fool’s Gold anthology are:

FOOL FOR LOVE by Louise Behiel
A woman is dragged from a contented, happy marriage to a life on the run.

NEVER COUNT YOUR CHICKENS by Victoria Chatham
Two boys play an April Fool’s joke on their employer.

WISHFUL THINKING by Alyssa Linn Palmer
CeeCee tells Ruth about her past, but how truthful is she?

AIRPORT SECURITY by Julie Rowe
On her way home from her tour of duty in Afghanistan, Dr. Abigail Westward discovers it’s not easy to leave her fellow soldiers or the memories of combat behind.

BABY FEVER by Sheila Seabrook
Baby cribs and baby swings and a winking, blinking doll. Oh my!

LUCY’S APRIL FOOLS by Brenda Sinclair
Will this be George Jack’s year to catch Lucy in an April Fool’s joke, or will his wife outsmart him again?

WHERE RABBITS RUN WILD by Trip Williams
Not all the rabbits in the mountains of Bandit Creek are cute and cuddly. Some come with a warning label.

Read Carla Roma’s interview with the Fool’s Gold authors or the Fool’s Gold story blurbs or buy the book. And be sure to stop by for the Facebook release party where you’ll have a chance to win some terrific prizes.

On the first and fifteenth of the month, check back for more new Bandit Creek books. There’s something at Bandit Creek for everybody!

Stay tuned for the follow up story to BABY FEVER. Coming July 15, 2012, WEDDING FEVER is Liz Templeton’s story.

Fool’s Gold is available at: Amazon and Smashwords

The Gift of Sight

The Gift of Sight

Join me at the Women Unplugged blog where I’m talking about The Gift of Sight.

My mother has macular degeneration, a medical condition which results in the loss of vision at the center of the eye. Eventually it spreads outward and causes blindness. This condition makes it difficult or impossible for her to recognize faces and read the newspaper. Although she still has enough peripheral vision to allow her to perform the daily activities in her life, there are many other limitations.

Walking on a Tightrope

Walking on a Tightrope

I’m rewriting a story. I’ve been rewriting this story for the past two years. Every time I pull it out, I stare at the words on the screen, then decide I’d rather become a tightrope walker without a safety net. Instead of writing, I fold laundry, walk the dust bunnies, and stare out the window at the still falling snow.

Come join me at the Women Unplugged blog where I’m seeking out your advice.
