I am still hoping... To get over this bug that has been plaguing me since the beginning of January.

I am hearing... The fridge.

Around the house... Organizing and decluttering.

One of my favorite things... Space.

  1. Hi, what is Cast of Stones about?

    1. Here is the description from Amazon...

      An Epic Medieval Saga Fantasy Readers
      Will Love

      In the backwater village of Callowford, Errol Stone's search for a drink is interrupted by a church messenger who arrives with urgent missives for the hermit priest in the hills. Desperate for coin, Errol volunteers to deliver them but soon finds himself hunted by deadly assassins. Forced to flee with the priest and a small band of travelers, Errol soon learns he's joined a quest that could change the fate of his kingdom.

      Protected for millennia by the heirs of the first king, the kingdom's dynasty is near an end and a new king must be selected. As tension and danger mount, Errol must leave behind his drunkenness and grief, learn to fight, and come to know his God in order to survive a journey to discover his destiny.

      It was free for the kindle and I was looking for something different and I was surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this book. Medial fantasy is not usually my thing to read but this one I would definitely recommend.

  2. Give thanks for what you are now, and keep fighting for what you want to be tomorrow. ~Fernanda Miramontes-Landeros~ Love the quote! and the book sounds really good as well!
