Hooray for Read a Book Day!
Hooray for Read a Book day! Here in North America, it’s our Labour Day weekend, so we can extend our “bookish” holiday into another full day of reading enjoyment.
What’s your preferred medium for reading? Are you a fan of ebooks or do you prefer print, either paperback or hardcover?
And then there are genres? Which do you like to read? Crime? Thrillers? Horror? Romance? Historical? Or a blend of all of the above.
I’m lucky in that being an author, I’ve met authors from other countries around the world – England, Scotland, Australia, France, the US, and back here at home in Canada.
I write in a number of genres, but my favourite is romance. You can see my books here. To find out more about any particular title, click on the cover and you’ll be taken to the book’s page where you’ll be provided with the description and buy links should you be so inclined to purchase.
My brand “where fact and fiction meet” stems from the fact I take real events and spin fictional stories around them, changing place and characters’ names to protect the ‘guilty.’ 😉
Now before you think this blog post is all about me, I’m going to introduce you to two authors you might not have heard of before.
I’ll start with Chris Longmuir. Chris and I first met virtually in early 2001 when she contacted me asking permission to use a photograph. We met in person later that same year and see each other as often as possible.
Another is Wendy H. Jones. I’ve not known Wendy as long, but she Chris and I make up the Princesses of Pandemonium. While their books are crime – gritty, humourous or historical – we have a great time when we get together.
Here we are outside the Old Town Jail in Stirling, Scotland.
And inside one of the cells.
I hope you enjoy Read a Book day, and maybe even discover some new-to-you authors.
Think this girl will get through that stack of books today?

I love the images of your books stacked on top of each other. So clever! Your writings are treasured by many, especially me.
Never Give Up
Great photos of you, Chris and Wendy..on one of your many research jaunts. As for ‘read a book’ day..yeah! Who knew? Should be every day, although maybe not ALL day, else nothing else gets done. It’s print copy and audio for me.
Hi Joan, I’m happy you like that picture. I’d seen another author do that and thought why not? Mind you, my stack of books isn’t nearly as tall as hers. Thrilled with your comment that my writing is treasured by many, especially you. Thanks as always for stopping by and showing your support.
Hi, Dorothy! The pandemic has helped with my reading, although not so much with my writing. I’ve not tried audiobooks yet. For me, it’s print and ebooks.
It’s great to utilize new ideas and make them our own! Right?
Enjoy your day!
Never Give Up
You’re right, Joan. Utilizing new ideas is great … it’s coming up with them that’s the hard part.
