The Last Dragon
by Daryl Devoré
Genre: Medieval Fantasy Romance
What do dragons, knights and romance have in common? Grab a copy of multi-published author Daryl Devore’s medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon and discover the answer.
A sorcerer craving dominance merged with a dragon, the power overwhelmed him causing him to split into three dragons. Demora ruled thought, but was lost in time. Yidithe offered protection, shining like the light of the sun. Ayrradex craved chaos, revelling in destroying souls.
Many knights died, attempting to slay the devil beast. One knight, Prince Hawkyns, did not fear death. He’d lost everything. Away on a mission when Ayrradex attacked his father’s kingdom, Penrythe, Hawkyns returned to find his noble father – feeble and defeated. His wise mother – crazed. His beautiful wife and unborn child – dead. Only a pile of ashes remained for him to bury. He knelt before his King and vowed to slay the devil-beast or be slain.
Derry was born with powers that terrified her parents. They delivered her to a nunnery to be raised in secret. Jathe, a wise sorceress, discovered the young girl and trained her to one day use the secret hidden in her soul.
Legends spoken around campfires hinted the sole way to destroy Ayrradex was when the hearts of a knight and a golden dragon became one. But after a vicious battle with Ayrradex, the golden dragon was thought to be dead.
Can Prince Hawkyns’s bravery and Derry’s powers end the reign of the devil-beast’s terror?
Two writers in one. Daryl Devoré writes hot romances with sexy heroes and strong heroines. Victoria Adams is Daryl Devoré’s alter ego when she’s inspired to write sweet romances with little to no heat.
Daryl (@daryldevore) lives in an old farmhouse in Ontario, Canada, with her husband, a large salt water aquarium full of fish, a black cat named Licorice and some house ghosts. Her daughter is grown and has flown the nest. Daryl loves to take long walks on her quiet country road or snowshoe across the back acres, and in the summer, kayak along the St. Lawrence River. She has touched a moon rock, a mammoth, and a meteorite. She’s been deep in the ocean in a submarine, flown high over Niagara Falls in a helicopter, and used the ladies room in a royal palace. Life’s an adventure and Daryl’s having fun living it.

Dragon Blood #Tour and #Giveaway

Dragon Blood
Draco Sang Trilogy Book 1
by Mary Beesley
Genre: YA Fantasy
Cal, a hungry sixteen-year-old sick of mining the sand, wants to fit in and make his ma proud, but instead, his violent tendencies bring shame. And the truth. He’s the son of a Draco Sang. Carriers of the Dragon’s blood, the Draco Sang transform into half human half beast as they mature into adults. And if Cal can’t control the dark impulses of his dragon blood, he’ll grow into a man-beast—and he’ll be hunted.
Ferth, son of a Draco Sang chief and last of his class to grow claws, needs to prove his worth to his father, or he’ll be sent to the slave house. Hiding his human heart, he joins the army headed south to conquer the fertile human lands.
Neither brother feels they belong. Cal is human, fighting against becoming a beastly Draco Sang, while Ferth is struggling to push back his humanity and transform into a worthy Draco warrior.
Before ever meeting in open battle, Ferth is sent to kill Cal. But when he learns they are brothers, he must decide which loyalty is stronger, blood or country. And whether to finally give in to his humanity.
Mary Beesley believes humans are born to create, and promotes creativity in all its beautiful forms. She’s learning calligraphy and watercolor. She loves exploring our magnificent planet and finding all the best places to eat around the world. But nothing beats coming home and sharing a pot of slow-simmered minestrone and homemade sourdough with friends and family. If she’s not in her writing chair, you’ll probably find her hiking in the Utah mountains with her husband and four children.

Is it obsessing if you dream about it? #Askingforafriend

Ha! I woke up this morning dreaming about the book I’m working on. Would you consider that an obsession? Me, I’m just glad. It’s been a while since that happened.

My husband asked if I was writing a memoir, lol. He saw a bit of my latest book I’d posted online. But, nope. I’m putting in some stuff that I lived and some I saw happen and stirred it with a huge amount of imagination.

The book I’m currently working on, the one I’m dreaming about is a contemporary romance. It takes place onboard the ship I was stationed on for four years. So, yeah, a bit of real life will be in there. They do say to write what you know! And honestly, we got up to a whole lot of hijinks on board the ship. I probably could write a memoir but why on earth would anyone read it?

I was the thirteenth woman to go through A school for Gunner’s Mate in Great Lakes IL. One of the first wave of women to be stationed onboard a ship. The USS Prairie AD-15. But seriously? Those are the most interesting facts about me.

Here is the Navy’s definition of a Gunner’s Mate. Check it out, but remember I was in the military from 1982-1987. Before they mashed the rate together with the TM rating.

I was a SAMI-Small Arms Marksman Instructor. I’ve probably trained 600 to 700 people minimum on how to use weapons during my four years on board the USS Prairie.

The GM Rating

Navy Gunner's Mate rating insignia

The Gunner’s Mate rating was officially established in 1794, and is one of the United States Navy’s original ratings. Gunner’s Mate is also one of the eight original Chief Petty Officer ratings. The Torpedoman (TM – Surface) rating merged with the GM rating on October 1, 2007.

The Navy’s computerized personnel system associates the rating name with an alphanumeric Navy Occupational Specialty (NOS) code. For GM, the NOS is B320.

Gunner’s Mates are responsible for the operation and maintenance of guided missile launching systems, underwater explosive weapons such as torpedoes, rockets and missiles, and the systems used to launch them, gun mounts and other ordnance equipment as well as small arms magazines. They work with electrical and electronic circuitry: mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems.

Gunner’s Mate class “A” school is located in Great Lakes, Illinois, and the school is approximately 27 weeks in duration. The GM rating requires a 60 month (5 year) service obligation for those leaving for boot-camp in Fiscal Year 2018 and beyond.

 COLLATERAL DUTY DESCRIPTION

The Navy Small Arms Marksmanship Instructor (SAMI) trains unit-level personnel required to be armed in the performance of their duties. Small arms instructors possess the necessary knowledge and skills to train, qualify, and sustain unit-level personnel in the safe handling and employment of pistols, rifles, and shotguns in accordance with OPNAVINST 3591.1 (series), and other U.S. Navy directives and guidelines that govern the arming of security personnel for the protection of Navy personnel and assets in direct support of Fleet-wide Force Protection requirements.

And that is your lesson today folks, lol. I’m going to head back into my obsession before hunger wins and I go make breakfast. Have a great week!

Seasons Greetings! #Christmas Tree Skirt assembly.

I hope everyone’s Christmas was good. If you celebrate Hanukah and Kwanza I hope those are going well or went well.

We celebrated yesterday, going over to our daughter’s to watch the granddaughter open her gifts and brought all of ours for her over too.

She had a ball! And yes those are all hers. The green ones were from us. The pink from her mom. The trolls are from her dad and the striped ones from her aunt. That isn’t even the ones from her other grandparents coming today!

But in preparation for Christmas I had to make a tree skirt for my daughter. I showed the first portion a couple of weeks ago. Here is the rest of it. I did finish it.

I bought 18 pieces of fabric at 1/4 yard each, and a blanket from a thrift store for batting. It ran me $6.99. The batting started at $9.99 so buying a blanket was cheaper. I used double binding tape for the trim. It took 4 packages. I did have a little of the binding left, but not much.

Here are the initials photos and the subsequent ones to completion. I’ll post the instructions at the end.

1. This is the one side
2. This is the ‘adult’ side, lol.
3. You can see the batting between the top and bottom.
4. Here the 2 sides are together and the trim is done around the center and the split.
5. The same view from the other side
6. Here is the completed skirt. It ties together to hold it closed. I didn’t flatten it out, lol.
7. This is the other side completed. This time I straightened it out, lol.

That is the whole skirt.

Items needed:

Large cardboard box, flattened

18 – 1/4 yard fabric pieces of 45 inch cotton fabric.

4 packages of binding tape

1 piece of batting 56 inches square or 1 throw blanket

scissors

straight pins

marking pencil or washable marker

sewing machine or 1 needle if hand sewing

2 spools of thread

Instructions:

I got a large cardboard box. I took a yardstick and put one end in the corner and held it. I put a pen against the 28 inch mark and in a 90 degree arc, drew a line. This was the outside of the tree skirt. I did it again at the 5 inch mark to give it a center. Then I cut the cardboard out.

I then marked it in half, and cut it. Then I marked that piece in half and cut it. That is how I made the templet.

This is what it looked like.

The tree skirt fabrics are 22 inches each tall. I cut the 1/4 yard piece in half so each piece was 1/4 yard wide and 22 inches tall. Once they were all cut, I took each piece and traced the pattern out on them using the marking pencil and cut them.

I pinned the sides of together until I had a pattern I liked. Then I did it to the other side. I laid the pinned pieces together over the blanket and cut the blanket to match the circle. (sorry I forgot to get a picture!) See #3 picture for the end result. I pinned them together and basted the top circle and the split.

Basting is using the straight stitch but at the largest stitch. Mine is 8 on my machine. This way you can pull out the stitches once your final stitching is done. Leave beginning and ending thread when you baste long so you can pull it out. Sew close to edges making sure to catch the blanket and matching edges of both sides.

Once you basted the skirt together, pin the binding tape to the edges. I started at the bottom corner of the split, went up and around the smaller circle and back down to the other side of the split. Fold binding tape neatly at the corners as you go turn to go on the circle. This took almost one package of binding tape. Sew. Pictures 4 & 5.

You can remove the basting stitches at this point unless you managed to cover them with the binding tape. Then you’re golden! If not, pull the thread to remove them. It sounds easy, but I always find this a pain, lol. I usually have a seam ripper handy to help if they don’t pull out easy. It’s okay but it takes a bit of time. If you can’t see your basting stitches don’t worry about it. Having them there doesn’t hurt a thing.

Then I took the binding tape and pinned the bottom circle starting at the split. Fold the edges neatly and pin. It will take at least 2 packages of binding tape, so be prepared. Make sure to fold under the binding tape when you start the next package so you don’t get loose threads.

Sew up the bottom circle.

Take the binding tape and cut six 10 inch pieces. Pin one on either side of the split at the top, middle and bottom of the split. Sew. I ran my machine 3 times over each strip to make sure they wouldn’t pull off.

Here’s the final product under the tree.

Here are pictures of my first tree skirt. I made it 28 years ago.

It is hard to see, but I hand embroidered a cross and a Christmas star all the way around this one to keep it together. I used a gold trim. On one side I used two fabrics, a solid and a print. For the other side I used a variety of prints. The whole skirt isn’t shown, I had it folded over to take a quick picture.

Call Me Dragon
Dragon Fires Rising Book 1
by Marc Secchia
Genre: Humorous Fantasy
Call me Dragon. It’s the last thing you’ll ever do.
Blitz the Devastator has never done a decent day’s devastating in his life. Fireless, artistic and shunned by his Dragon Clan, he struggles to pillage even the meanest village. A future full of misery and failure beckons.
This much is true until the day the burly brown Dragon successfully – imagine that – kidnaps the Princess Azania. As a black Princess of T’nagru, this spirited beauty is by definition the most unforgettable woman in the seventeen realms. Knights errant, men-at-arms and sundry Princes expire at her feet in drivelling worship.
Unfortunately, they all want his scaly head on a platter shortly thereafter. Goes with the territory.
To Blitz’s consternation, the royal nuisance refuses to behave herself and be a typical pampered Princess. With humour, unconventional flair and the odd stomp of her diminutive slipper, she sets out to reform her Dragon.
One question remains. Who will save the Dragon from the Princess?
Marc is a South African-born dragon masquerading as an author, who loves writing about dragons and Africa, preferably both at the same time. He’s the author of 25 fantasy books in 5 languages including 10 rip-roaring dragon fantasy bestsellers. Dragonfriend won a Gold Award for Fantasy in the 2016 IPPY Book Awards.
When he’s not writing about Africa or dragons Marc can be found travelling to remote locations. He thinks there’s nothing better than standing on a mountaintop wondering what lies over the next horizon.

An update on my office! And a few other projects

And none of those projects are writing, lol. I’m giving myself a pass. I’m still waiting on a bookcase and I need a chair or something to relax in, in my office, but it is coming along. Here’s a few pictures.

Yes, most of my artwork on the walls are stamps! I did work for the Post Office for 30 years! Retiring in 2019 as Postmaster in the town I lived in. The other wall (yellow one) has my swearing in oath in the offices I became Postmaster in. I loved my job, but it was time to go. And I don’t regret one moment of choosing retirement, lol. Though I do miss the money I had to spend with a full time job. I’ve had to be a bit thriftier! I even started couponing again.

Well, I said I haven’t been writing. Instead I’ve been spending more time with my daughter. Here’s what we did this past week.

We actually made two gingerbread houses. I got the mold from an online Pampered Chef party for the house. It worked great. I found the recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction. Great gingerbread. Worked well for the house and all the other cookies we cut out. Very sturdy and tasty. My granddaughter has been randomly munching on pieces of it, lol. My gingerbread men have started missing heads, and the trees are losing their treetops, lol.

I’ve also been working on a tree skirt for my daughter. We are still waiting on a piece of material to come in. A Game of Thrones piece for the one side of the skirt.

Each side repeats the pattern twice. We purchased nine 1/4 yard pieces and cut them in half so that the 45 inch became 22 1/2 inch high and a quarter yard wide. I cut out a pattern from a piece of cardboard. I took a thin pole, marked 28 inches on it. I went from the corner of the side, holding the one side steady and drew an arc so that I had a quarter of a circle. Then I halved that piece and halved it again. The I took a mixing bowl and cut out the center where the tree would be standing. That left me with a piece that fit the 22″ piece to a tee.

Each side of the tree skirt will have 18 pieces. These photos are showing the initial pinning together. That’s when I realized were were short material! They are just pinned together.

We went out to get the rest of the material, hitting up a thrift shop and picking up a blanket to be the batting material. It is a lot cheaper. Once each side is sewed up, I’ll pin it to the blanket and cut out all the excess material. I’ll run it on the machine to hold it in place and to keep it from buckling when it gets washed. This is extremely important as her cats love to sleep under the tree. It has to be sturdy and machine washable.

Once that is done, I have green double bias tape to bind up all the edges. I’ll put a split in it with ties so you don’t have to put it down before you put up the tree. Hopefully I’ll have it done by Wednesday. The last piece is due in on Monday (keeping my fingers crossed).

I’ll post pictures of the rest of the steps in a couple of weeks.

Stay crafty! lol.
