I used to let my cats go out at night. I mean, they’re nocturnal, I’m more or less nocturnal so it made sense. Unfortunately there seems to be more urban and suburban wild life around in the past few years. We’ve always had a lot of possums, skunks and raccoons around but lately there have also been coyotes. They’re everywhere and thrive among people. But with people come pets. Coyotes eat cats and sometimes dogs. So if you hear of coyotes in your area please keep those kitties inside at night so they don’t end up being midnight snacks. If you have rabbits, chickens or other critters in outdoor hutches make sure they’re safe and secure.
While I am not doing NaNoWriMo this year I encourage any budding writers to give it a try. That is National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a novel in a month. Ready – Set – Write! It is a lot of fun plus you can interact and meet other writers with the same like-minds as yours.
November is also Movember. Guys grow some hair on your face in support of prostrate health and Prostrate Cancer Research.
Thanksgiving is coming the last week of the month (for my American readers). And why yes, Vampires DO celebrate Thanksgiving. Thank you for asking. I’ll have more on that in the coming weeks, including recipes (I kid you not.)
Everyone needs a little romance! You’ll find it in Passion’s Prisms!
As the weather grows colder and the days grow longer (for my Northern Hemisphere friends, for those to the south think beach books) we spend more time inside with a pot of tea (or mulled blood) and curl up with a good book. For a short time the short story anthology Passion’s Prisms. I love this book. And good news – for a limited time it is available on Amazon and Goodreads for only $0.99. Can’t beat that price. Plus, not only will you feel good reading this book but you’ll know that part of the proceeds go towards MS Research.
A collection of romantic stories and poetry by various authors. Love can be many things. For some, it’s sweet and sensual. For others, it’s tragic and painful. There are as many sides to love and romance as there are souls to experience them. Just as a prism transforms a beam of light into all colors of the rainbow, love blooms to its full potential, taking on a different shade with every heart through which it passes. The stories and poetry in this book are as diverse as their composers. You will find a bit of everything in here, from tenderness, sensuality and magic to the inevitable darker sides of romance – pain, tragedy and deceit. We are WPaD (Writers, Poets and Deviants), a group of writers from all over the world who have come together to collaborate on a series of themed charity anthologies. A portion of royalties will be donated to Multiple Sclerosis research in support of a fellow writer who lives with MS. Passion’s Prisms is our salute to romance, presented for your enjoyment.

Halloween is over but we’re still here. If you hear any reports of Vampire Hunters or rogue Vampires please call your local Circle so they can take care of it. Please educate your kids, especially your Vampire teens of the risks. Also make sure all new Vampires and those Vampires who are out of touch get the same education. It is now time for outreach folks.
