Yep. November arrived last week, then daylight savings time ended, and we Fell back. I hear the pitter-patter of holiday feet and, of course, Christmas decorations are already in the store windows. However, I refuse to panic…yet. I have more important things, like my Featured Follower of the Month. Ta-Da! L.X. Cain is a writer of horror fiction and she does a great job at scaring me, yet keeping me reading, so I’m excited to feature her here this month.
“Lightning flashes. Another child disappears…” This is how the book starts, and you’ll have to keep reading because the terror doesn’t stop until the end. You can enter to win either an eBook or an AudioBook by leaving a comment with your choice and a contact email.
There’s an anthology that’s just out, and I’m plugging it because all proceeds go to an excellent cause. Full Dark is a benefit anthology. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization that does many wonderful things for our country’s active military, its veterans, and the countless first responders who sacrifice so much to keep us safe.

And what about France? Well, it was much more than I expected. I’ll be boring you with snippets of my adventure, so be forewarned. First, there was Limoges. We didn’t stay in Paris. We had other plans for this trip, and that included heading south. Limoge is about four hours by car. Four hours and many toll roads. Think $$$$. Of course, there was the adventure of one of our gang losing a credit card the first day out. We hit French soil and within hours were trying to use our rusty French to stave off financial disaster. Amazingly, we did. And we discovered our cards didn’t work at the gas pumps. The French have a card that’s like our debit card with a password. They spit ours out, or just don’t return them from the machines. Oops! The images below show our first night. We are all still pounds thinner than at the end of the journey, so this was a good picture to reveal. Kind of a before the after!
