On My Must-See-Someday List

Wow. Cool statue in Ballantre, somewhere in Dublin, by famous artist Sophie Ryder is most certainly a threesome dedicated to Bitty.

Bitty is a fictional character in the story of the man behind the myths of Easter.

This news is not quite as thrilling as the fact the best publisher ever said Harey, the historical romance that Bitty plays a part in, is in the works for print and maybe audio.

On .99 cent sale from now until April 5th.

Print is Much More than a Five Letter Word.

This pic is worth about 480 thousand words.
Started ten years ago writing in a notebook, and look what January 2015 brings.

In starting her life over, Joss had expected some resistance, even some trouble, but not this. The bedroom floor boards trembled beneath her golden-slippered feet. Tendrils of an unseen power curled upward from deep within the ground, tingling through her toes. She paused to steady herself, then continued to put the finishing touches on her costume. The tremors grew into rumbles and their hum seeped beneath her skin. When their tiny wisps twined through her mind, she clenched her hands. Enough. Go away.
Thick as starlight on a clear summer’s eve, sweet as the lavender blossoms she had yet to plant, energy whooshed up through the cracks of the worn wood and out into the October night.
She gripped the bureau until it passed, the vibrations rolling over her in lessening waves. Bubbly, effervescent waves. “Third time tonight, Taz.” Each departure took longer, and more of the essence remained.
When the dog whined, she stroked his fur. “Don’t worry, it won’t hurt you.”
Even if tonight the waves were palpable enough to make her hairs stand on end. Oh, no, please.
Nothing could ruin tonight. More than a party, this event would determine her future. And after three years of grief, she’d never allow anything to trap her in its clutches again.

I Have A Buy Link

Amazon-Kindle

Family calls for help and I run to the rescue like I always do, to work cheerfully and politely, for as long as it takes. 
And I wind up in a jam. 
Mocked by flowers and non-existent fiends, I do what comes natural, perfectly normal for a guy who doesn't want to hang in a retail shop or funeral home—I freak out and hide. 
Then—she—joins me in my dark and cramped isolation, and I do something that goes beyond natural, surpasses supernatural and becomes, for me, a cosmic phenomenon. Struck not by lightning, but lust. A once in a blue moon, great-balls-on-fire infatuation. 
To get to the point—without knowing who the girl is, what she looks like, or anything about her—I fall for her. 
My name is Joel. This romance is the story of my death and my life. Trust me, after you read you’ll understand. 

In Lieu of Flowers is a sweet romance, new adult, for general audience.

A Special Easter, thanks to Harlie's Book Reviews

bookreview
It wasn’t until I finished Harey that I finally got the Easter origin story.  I’m a bit slow because I was completely fascinated with the history that Ms. Webb weaved into her story.  Times were harsh back then and the clash between the pagans and Christians were brutal at best.  What drew me into the story itself was Harey.
Harey is an abused man-child that had never known the touch of a man or woman without fear.  When we first met Gareth and Harey it’s not a very pleasant experience for Harey but one that would change his life forever.  But it was Harey’s innocence and purity that sets him apart of any historical/medieval character that I’ve read before.  He had trust issues but when it came to Gareth, he trusted him from the beginning.  Warming up to Maura took a little longer.
Don’t worry about the smexy times in the book.  Sure there is m/m and m/f but the m/m is so tastefully done that its sweet in nature and not too graphic.  Harey has an instant attraction to Gareth and feels like it’s a sin but if you go back in history, it was actually very common.  His time with Maura is also sweet and Ms. Webb does a great job of writing their scenes together.
Gareth, oh my Gareth…He is a dream but conflicted as well.  The scenes at the monastery are brilliantly written and the history of the early Briton wars with the Saxon were great.  It made for a fascinating read and my realization that not everything is sugar-coated in history.
Do yourself a favor and pick up Harey.  The history that Ms. Webb weaves with a sweet love story is not to be missed.  Plus, it will definitely give you a better perspective on the Easter Bunny.  Did I mention that there is a bunny in the story and its name is Bitty?  Nope…will, you definitely need to read the book to found out.  ;)
