THE Must Have Gardening Book

Don't laugh, but I totally stayed up until 2am to finish reading this. If you are thinking seriously about gardening now that we're all stuck at home, this book is amazing and will save you so much time. It's very readable, super interesting, and full of great info. It's so popular, hard copies are sold out, but the ebook is available.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

This one isn't the typical fantasy or paranormal romance read I usually feature, but I fell into it just like I fell into needing to get our garden going sooner as opposed to later. It's a lovely, verdant read with a soothing cadence full of renewal. If you've started pandemic gardening, add this to your reading list. You'll pick up lots of little gardening tips and the anecdotes are a quiet spot in the chaos. 

There Are Things in the Walls of this Place

For those who haven't heard, we bought an 1860 farmhouse that needs a pretty significant overhaul. It's a lot of work, but the house was affordable and my husband is handy. We are doing almost everything ourselves and relying on the hubby's expert network of friends who are also plumbers, electricians, carpenters etc... (Thank goodness for friends!)

We've taken about 80% of the first floor down to the studs (which I don't even think are studs actually, but whatever version of studs they had in the 1860s) now and little bits and bobs of things have been falling out of the walls.


Here's a re-cap of what we've discovered so far.

Not pictured: A half burned book that mentioned witches. I couldn't make out what book it was, but it wasn't a bible. So right there, you know the walls are spooky.

We think this could be a tool for darning socks. Or maybe the knob of a lid to a cooking dish. No one really knows. It tumbled out of a defunct chimney we took out of the walls.

This is an old pharmacy bottle we found. It's apparently sort of unusual and we've had interest from bottle collectors, however, we plan to keep it.

And this is probably why you're really here...the sex figurine. We found this naughty bit in the wall of what will be the kitchen. Apparently crude sex figures cast of metal have been a thing for a while, but I can't find anything that explains how they were used. Did people make their own or was there a company supplying these? What did you do with them? Give them to a lover? Gag gifts?  No one seems to know!

PS: In book news, I have a new release here (with witches!) and another book (with dragons!) has been nominated for a RONE over here. Spoiler: Nothing falls out of walls in either of these stories. Perhaps that was a mistake!

Michelle Fox...making spontaneous human combustion sexy.
Adara Brenton thinks she's an average girl: single and dreaming of romance. Also? In need of a job. As it turns out, horking up fireballs at work is the fast track to unemployment.
Yes. Fireballs.
See, in her family, spontaneous human combustion is red hair, only, you know, fatal, and now it's her turn to burn. What she doesn't know is the fire inside her is a legacy and the only way to survive is to be brave enough to claim it.
Endre Felman has lived deep inside a mountain for centuries, adding to his hoard and looking for his mate. Meeting Adara before she goes up in smoke gives him hope, but convincing her dragons are real, that he's the dragon of her heart, and keeping her alive through what's to come proves to be more difficult than he ever imagined. She fights him at every turn, resisting their shared destiny.
In the end, they may both burn to ash because no dragon lives forever without love.
