Aloha Outlet is Helping Me Pack For a Luxury Cruise

Taking a sabbatical from writing, marketing, and fretting over sales has been the best decision I’ve made in a long while. I do miss the writing part but it was necessary to wipe the creative slate clean. In the past year since my dear husband died, I’ve made several new beginnings, regained my confidence, and have been throwing out the old. I’m sure my neighbors  are wondering if a tornado hit my house seeing all the stuff that has been shunted to the curb for pickup.

Ralph and I used to travel a lot, especially to Hawaii. It was tempting to buy a plane ticket to Honolulu and revisit our favorite haunts (we lived there for four years). But then, something in my gut said that wasn’t a good idea. Travel brochures kept arriving in my mailbox, perhaps a hint from the travel gods to look in a different direction. After several hours, okay months, of scanning the possibilities, I broke out of the shell that kept me feeling I couldn’t travel without Ralph. There staring at me was a trip that we had considered but it was always quickly sold out. This trip, Wonders of the Ancients, was in the midst of a brief promotion for early bookings. So now I have two years to look forward to, to plan and pack.

Who out there wouldn’t go on a luxury cruise. In TWO YEARS (yes, crazy far away) I’ll be in Dubai, boarding the Nautica ship with Oceania. Twenty days later I’ll arrive at Rome and head for home. Already, I’m planning my wardrobe. What do you think about this dress (see link below) that I plan to order from my favorite Hawaiian shop, Aloha Outlet http://www.alohaoutlet.com/Shops/108/en/ItemDetail.aspx…

Romance Under Fire Novels – Unique

Romance Under Fire (RUF) Novels – One of a Kind

Romance Under Fire (RUF) novels by Feather Stone are full of fire. Sometimes gunfire. Always, the plot is a blaze of fast-paced action. The character’s passion – intense heat. From page one to the final word, the fire will remain with you. Bring your flak jacket, your wine / beer, and enjoy the heat.

What makes a RUF novel special?

iStock_000027370170_DoubleHaving witnessed and/or experienced thirty years worth of tragedy and horror as a paramedic, Feather Stone has  the fodder to create intense plots. RUF novels portray the mind numbing fear, hopelessness, desperation, gut-wrenching grief Feather Stone’s patients experienced.

Feather personally knows of the heroic actions of the police, fire personnel, and her fellow advanced life support staff. Sometimes they won the battles with death’s dark angel. Sometimes they lost. But always, there was passion – deep, unrelenting passion to never give up regardless of the risk to life and limb.

I’ve Died and Gone to Author Heaven #suspense #review

Had I not been asked to read ‘Forbidden’ by its author as part of a cooperative project among mystery writers (Mystery Thriller Week Annual Event), I would likely have missed the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and allow myself to be transported to the year 2047 in a land called Samarra, an Islamic city. Sadly, I also would have forfeited my seat on a fantastic thrill ride.

I read these nearly 400 pages in two evenings.  I was compelled to keep turning the pages by the life-threatening events experienced by paramedic, Eliza, as she sought to help others while recovering from the loss of her husband and children in a tragic accident that she should not have survived.

Scenes of mass murder, imprisonment, passion and a culture which both mystified and frightened me carried me breathlessly from beginning to end and left me feeling sorry to find that the story had reached its conclusion.

ROMANCE UNDER FIRE – Unrelenting Heat

CIA agent, Frank Hutchinson, tracks his suspect. He’s determined to capture the killer of the 15 Americans. That fact that the bastard is a cop makes him even more determined to get revenge.
