Discover new worlds – KaLiCon style – intro

Hello and welcome!

As I make the final preparations for my trip to RTC in a few days, my thoughts turn to KaLiCon in October. I will be returning, as ‘bossy’ PA to Mary Ann (M. A. Abraham) I look forward to it, planning a few surprises for the Elven Games v2.0 😉

Andi Lawrencovna came up with this great idea and a few of the authors signing at KaLiCon 2019 joined her to make anthology, where each share a short story, giving the readers a chance to get to know their writing styles and the worlds they created. It will release August 1 and will be available FREE until the event starts. How awesome is that?

I invited their heroes, heroines for a chat and starting August 1, 2019 I will have them posted here for you to enjoy, one each day, give you a little more than the books and have fun while doing so.

Until next time… read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!

RTF 2019 – thoughts and a giveaway

Hello and welcome!

It’s been a while since I posted… you know… LIFE !!!

Today I would like to give you my thoughts on the latest adventure in the book world. I attended Romancing the Falls 2019 on May 18, I mentioned in my last post.

Freya Barker! Congrats on another awesome event and kudos to your team, the volunteers were exceptional.

Look at this beautiful stand-up banner that greeted the readers this year! I am jealous of my friend who won it, but I am happy for her too. I wouldn’t have the space to display it in my little place LOL

RTF2019-StandUp-banner

Got to ‘boss around’ M. A. Abraham again 😛 (sorry … inside joke), help with the table and got to sneak away to get my pre-orders and get a few more of course 😉

These are the books I got… I did pretty good, right? Just a tad over my budget.

books-bought

Also got a few prezzies too.

Finally got a ‘squishy willie’ I had my heart set on for a few events now but never managed to snag one, thank you Tricia MUAH

squishyWilie

I adore Renea Mason and love her books, got a few BBF in her various series. I listened (a few times) to the audiobooks, narrated by the scrumptious voices of Erin Deward and Noah Michael Levine and cannot recommend them enough, if you like ménage that is.

books-fromRenea

Received these colouring books from Christine at Sweet & Spicy Reads for blog giveaways Thank you Christine ❤ Check out their website, you might find some new books to love.

colouringBooks

Awesome swag too, these are a few that stand out to me

Jannine-swagfave-swag-3

Got to hug again authors I met at previous events, shared some laughs and of course the signature jello dicks were present too, along with some jello hearts, thank you Kerri ❤

… there were also a few authors I read, but met for the first time and a few new-to-me authors.

J.S. Scott was one of the ones I met for the first time, she donated a book for the giveaway on this post. I discovered her books not long ago and from what I read so far, I will continue for sure. Melanie Moreland donated an audiobook for a giveaway in the Aural Fixation group I am part of on Facebook. A great group for audiobook lovers, just reached 7,000 members WOOT !!! Janine Infante Bosco was so much fun and so was the duo who makes up Kindle Alexander. The upbeat energy that another duo, Morgan and Jennifer Locklear, gave off was contagious. Jen Luerssen is a new author for me, the book covers got my attention, so I bought some. Shiloh Walker is another new to me author, some titles caught my attention that will have to check out.

I wish I had time to meet them all, but missed a few because there was a lineup every time I got a change to get away from the table or the ‘shiny’ kept me busy LOL

For the first time since I’ve been going to these events, I got snubbed / ignored by a couple of authors when I approached them. It wasn’t a pleasant feeling, and believe me, I do not expect royal treatment, I am a nobody, but a hello or a ‘goawaybecausemyphoneismoreimportantnow’ would have been enough. I will not mention names, but they lost a reader/reviewer. Not a big deal in the big scheme of things, but I could have used that time to go see the others tables I missed visiting. Moving on…

Overall it was a great event, seeing my book ‘tribe’, the people I interact on FB often or see at events and consider friends, left me ‘high’ again. Such a positive feeling! THANK YOU for the hugs, laughs and your friendship. And the prezzies too XOXO

The silent auction was a resounding success, with the generous donations from authors and bloggers and proceeds going to Niagara Falls Public Library Children’s Literacy program.  I think it was over $2,500 that was collected. My contribution was this basket, it didn’t go for the cost of it all, but was a good sum nonetheless. Every penny counts, right? I bid on a few baskets myself but didn’t win any.

Now to the best part… because you are all amazing and I love sharing my loot with you.

Giveaway contents:

  • a VIP bag

  • swag and books

Q: Tell me who would you like to meet if you could?

Until next time… read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!

Christmas Wishes

Hello and welcome!

When I saw this pic years ago, it spoke to me and my Dad came to mind. He was a lover of nature, animals loved him, even wild ones, plants grew under his care like you’ve never seen. I came across it again recently and I thought I will share with you too.

xmasTree-onWallsource

It has been a hard year for many, including me. Christmas is a time when we feel the loss more acutely of those we lost recently or many years ago, be that to death or to parting ways.

I am hopeful that next year will be better, I am a survivor and a fighter.

Here is my Christmas Wish to you… even if you don’t celebrate it.

Hungarian is my mother tongue, so I’ll start with that 😉

Boldog Karácsonyi Ünnepeket!

which means in…

English – “Merry Christmas!”
German – “Fröhliche Weihnachten”
French – “Joyeux Noël”
Spanish – “¡Feliz Navidad!”
Hawaiian – “Mele Kalikimaka”
Irish – “Nollaig Shona Dhuit”
Welsh – “Nadolig Llawen !”
Italian – “Buone Feste Natalizie”
Swedish – “God Jul”
Danish – “Glædelig Jul”
Dutch – “Vrolijk Kerstfeest”
Croatian – “Sretan Bozic”
Greek – “Kala Christouyenna”
Portuguese – “Feliz Natal”
Russian – “Pozdrevlyayu s prazdnikom Rozhdestva s Novim Godom”
Chinese – (Mandarin) “Kung His Hsin Nien bing Chu Shen Tan”
Thai – “Suk sarn warn Christmas”
Vietnamese – “Chuć Mưǹg Giańg Sinh”

and for us nerds 

Quenya (Lord of the Rings) – Alassë a Hristomerendë

Sindarin (Lord of the Rings) – Mereth Veren e-Doled Eruion

Klingon (Star Trek) – toDwI’ma’ qoS yItIvqu’

Este mikor kigyúlnak a karácsonyi fények, a gyermekkori álmok egy percre visszatérnek. Ekkor a szemekben a szeretet fénye lángol, s a gyertyafényénél még a csillag is táncol.

my translation…

When the Christmas lights come on in the evening, childhood dreams return for a moment. This is when love is shining in all eyes, and even the star dances in the candlelight.

After seeing again the picture above, I went in search of alternate Christmas decor ideas.

Book world adventures – Autumn 2018 edition

Hello and welcome!

As I posted about these in September and October, I attended two books signings this fall. It will be a long post but bear with me, it will be worth it.

In September there was Ignite Your Soul Author Event in London, ON Canada.

banner.jpg

Love their slogan: Real books. Real People. Real community. Come ignite your soul with us!

I was a PA for the day for M. A. Abraham but also got to mingle with the other authors, bloggers and readers. Here is my haul.

books bought
swag collected

This year it was the Alzheimer Society of London and Middlesex who was the recipient of the silent auctions proceeds. The authors, bloggers donated some great prizes to bid on. I bid on two and won one, which is not too bad.

After the signing, the VIP guests attended the Autumn Harvest Dinner After Party where the buffet dinner was delicious, there was dancing with DJ entertainment and photo booth to goof around in, I got to use the spanking paddle on a few friends LOL the night ended with tears rolling down my face and holding my stomach from so much laughter. Yeah I am looking at you Tricia and Angie … I am still waiting for the demonstration on how to eat the tiramisu properly 😛

All in all it was a good event and we had a good time, kudos to authors
Crystal St. Clair & Erin Cristofoli and their awesome team of volunteers, looking forward to next signing happening in 2020. Check out the website for more info.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In October there was a brand new 2-day event, KaLiCon held in Belleville, ON Canada

It went beyond expectations and thanks to Kali Willows and Kacey Hammell, along with their amazing team, the event was a great success. Friday schedule was packed. There was the Elven Games I got to put together with M. A. Abraham where we had musical chairs, musical toys (a variation of musical chairs for those with mobility issues), puzzles, crafts, frog games, bow & arrows, also pin-the-tail-on-the-dragon, also games involving balloons, spoons and knees too 😀

There was the Author-Sponsored Luncheon, then Author Speed Dating (chat with the author for 5 minutes then move to the next one), then Cider Sampling with Kayleigh Malcolm. I have to say I never really liked cider before, now I certainly do. Later on was the VIP Cocktail Party where we got to try some yummy cocktails. I tried the KALICON DRAGON and BOOK WHORE… YUM … got to keep the menu sign YAY

We also had virtual signings from authors who could not be at the event and we chatted over video link. Lots of prizes were won, I did too, got a dragon eye necklace from Kali Willows.

On Saturday morning there was the Guess Whose Line is It, where there were lines read from various books and who guessed right won the book. I won Clone – Book of Eva by Paxton Summers got to keep the board and signed too. Also won a t-shirt from her.

Again, I was assisting M. A. Abraham at the signing but also got to sneak out and check out the other tables, meeting new authors along with hugging my faves. My haul is smaller this time 😉

books bought
books won or gifted to me
swag

The silent auction was a resounding success, with the generous donations from authors, bloggers and a few local companies.  My contribution was this necklace I made using aventurine, chalcedony, corralium, turquoise and 925 silver. The chosen charity was the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.

The plans are already in place for next year, I will be there helping M.A. again, plotting the Elven Games. Make sure you reserve your spot as soon as possible, go to the website for more info.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now to the best part… because it is my birthday tomorrow and you are all amazing and I love sharing my loot with you, there are two parcels, each containing:

  • two signed books chosen at random from the ones below. I purchased a copy of the Word Search for Warriors from C. A. King then got thinking, it is for a great cause, so I bought another one to share with you. Shaded by Love – Coloring Book was gifted by Kerri Anne, Clone – Book of Eva was gifted by Paxton Summers and Essence Derived was gifted by Carey Decevito specifically for this giveaway.
  • swag
  • VIP bags from both events
  • a tote bag from me, also this fan made by me

Sexy Mr. Random will pick the 2 winners, after 3pm EST on Monday, November 26, 2018, from the comments. Open internationally! GOOD LUCK!

Until next time… read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!

New Year Wish

Hello and welcome!

Another year has passed … where did it go I ask … this year I passed a huge milestone and I’ve been thinking more than usual about … life, family, friends, loyalty, love, health.

This past two years have been challenging for me on many levels and what I learned is that I need to be more loving and more forgiving towards myself, reach for things that I want, be more selfish with my time, say NO more often and do more that make me smile. Books make me smile, discovering new worlds created by such amazing minds make me smile. I will keep collecting book boyfriends … and girlfriends … and new voices to whisper in my ears 😉 found a few that I crush on and I hope I don’t embarrass them when I tell them so.

As we grow older, people leave our life, for various reasons, some by choice, some not so much and it affects us, sometimes with sadness, sometimes with relief. I read this quote recently and it stayed with me: “Celebrate endings – for they precede new beginnings.” It is hard to celebrate something ending, especially if it was not by my choice, but I believe that everything happens for a reason, as life showed me time and time again. I am ready to focus on the hope and light of new beginnings.

Thank you for being here, for your kind words, funny comments, for your support and I hope my posts make you smile and laugh, make you think and make you fall in love. Thanks for being so awesome!

To Wolf Lady

girlWwolf

I am writing these words with tears in my eyes. The world lost a bright light today, my friend, Fran, who we lovingly called Wolf Lady went to join her loved ones in the Myst. Sending hugs and my deepest sympathy to her family. I know there are no words to lessen the pain, but know that time will help. Celebrate her life and she will live on in your hearts as she will in mine.

Met her on-line close to 8 years ago and became friends fast, we had that connection that we are rarely lucky to feel. We shared a love of books, she embraced new authors as I did and was one of my biggest supporter of this blog, old and current one. I was so happy when Sexy Mr. Random picked her name for the winner or see her happy face when I surprised her with a small packet from time to time, sharing my book signing bounty.

We chatted by email, on-line, on PM and Skype and made me laugh with her unusual way of writing typos, I dubbed ‘Fran-speak’. We shared happy moments and the not-so-happy ones too. We talked about meeting face-to-face and kept saying one day soon, but life got in the way… and now the only choice left is to ‘meet’ one day in the Myst.

I light a candle and remember her bright light. You will be missed Wolf Lady!!

My recent adventures in the book world

Hello and welcome!

allaccesspass.pngI am so happy that there are more book signings in my part of the world. I am ticking off names from my bucket list of authors I love and want to meet.

KallypsoCon-july15.jpg

I attended the KallypsoCon signing in Burlington, ON back in July, and only the signing on July 15th because the full event tickets were sold out like hot cakes.

I was so happy to finally meet Cherise Sinclair, Kallypso Masters & Lexi Blake SQUEEEE

I got to see again Ainsley Booth and meet her Frisky Beavers co-author Sadie Haller, she is such a sweetie, also got to see and hug again Cara Covington.

New authors for me were Julie Morgan, Sasha White, Ella Dominguez, Sierra Cartwright.

Of course I blew my budget again, but that is nothing new for me LOL

2017-07-16 10.25.48.jpg

Bumped into a few friends, also authors who attended as readers. Thanks to Kayleigh who gave up her registration bag, I have a memento from the event, and I got it signed by the attending authors ❤

All in all was a good signing, despite being short for me, collected swag for you too. Keep on reading 😉

RTCbanner02_300dpi.jpg

Moving forward a few weeks which were filled with preparations for the Romancing the Capital in Ottawa, Canada, attended the 3-day event as a ‘bossy Elven helper’ to M. A. Abraham 😉 this being her first signing and all. I think it went pretty good, she was a trooper and took everything in stride. It was a learning experience for both of us, that’s for sure. We as readers do not realize how much time, money, energy goes into preparing and delivering to a signing event. MY HATS OFF TO ALL THE AUTHORS. We participated in a few events, we dressed up for both dinners and the signing went off without a hitch. The only thing we forgot is our capes, but there is always next time 😉

Screen Shot 2017-08-27 at 1.59.24 AM.png

Got to wear a few t-shirts, one M. A. ordered for me with my love Loth, the Elven Warrior King and it says “I RATHER PLAY WITH LOTHRARIEL IN THE ELVEN EMPIRE”, and a couple of t-shirts I designed, one with my book boyfriends who came for a chat on this blog and one with my fave Eargasms voices. Alas the two I made, didn’t make it thru the wash so I have to come up with something more permanent.

I think I am still on a ‘high’ from the event. The generosity of the authors, the friendliness of the readers, the whole atmosphere is electrifying. Eve Langlais, despite promising that she will not do another event again, delivers every time. She is such an awesome hostess, thanking her & her minions, the sponsoring authors for another awesome event.

Screen Shot 2017-08-27 at 2.21.37 AM.png

Meet Dreamy Eyes, a surprise from M. A., the dragon that accompanied me to the event and was my sidekick for one of the dinners when I dressed up as an Elven Dragon Rider. I received a goat from Kate Reedwood, too cute aaaaand I finally got my hands on the EveL Ducky SQUEEEE

I recently joined a group on FB called Aural Fixations, an awesome group of readers addicted to audiobooks (my wallet is terrified when I go to check out what the group has posted LOL), authors and narrators. So I made a sign/fan and got pictures with all the authors who have audiobooks so I can share with the group. I even gave away one audiobook CD set I won in Deborah Cooke’s event.

It was great seeing again authors I met in the past, Deborah Cooke, Zoe York, Sadie Haller, Ashlyn Chase, Opal Carew, Anne Lange, Carey Decevito, Viola Grace, Milly Taiden. Finally meeting ones that I love, more crossed off my bucket list 😀 Sarah Castille, Elle James, Susan Stoker. Discovering new ones, Cathryn Fox, Desiree Holt, Kristine Cayne, Susan Hayes, M. K. Eidem, Anna Markland, A. M. Griffin, Barbara Devlin, Sharon Page, Angela S. Stone, Sara Hubbard, Cat Johnson, Mandy Rosko, Lucy Farago, Amy Ruttan, Sheri Lyn, Cara Addison.

Made a few new friends, hugged old ones, it was like a big family reunion, without the drama of course LOL

bags.jpg

I have two bags filled with awesome swag & books from both events plus I raided my stash, I even found some extra t-shirts and would like to share the bounty with two readers, open to Canada and US. Here are the books, split between the two at random 😉

books.jpg

Tell me which authors would you like to meet.
Can be any author, not just the ones listed here 😉

Two names will be picked by Sexy Mr. Random after 3pm EST on Tuesday, August 29, 2017. GOOD LUCK!

Until next time read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!

Mother & Child

motherWchild.jpg
Relationship! What is a relationship?

The Wikipedia version is “… an association between two or more people that may range from fleeting to enduring…” & “… a connection between two individuals… “ & “… involve some level of interdependence. People in a relationship tend to influence each other, share their thoughts and feelings, and engage in activities together. Because of this interdependence, most things that change or impact one member of the relationship will have some level of impact on the other member… “.

Freesia.jpg
source

It’s my Mother’s birthday today, she would have been 81. Her fave flowers were freesias and I remember the last time I saw her alive, it was winter, I bought out the flower shop, she cried when she saw the armful of freesias.

So today I will write about Mother & child relationships.

Think back, how did you see your Mother when you were 6? How about when you were 16 or 26? The relationship changes over time with each memory or lack of it. How do you remember a certain moment or day and how does she?

My Mother passed away 26 years ago and my memory of her changed as years passed, it softened. When I was a teenager I wanted her to be different, to be cool, like my best friend’s Mom with whom you could talk openly about anything. After becoming a Mother myself, I understand her more or why she did certain things. After digging into her childhood, understanding her temperament, I came to realize she was the best Mother she could be, she sacrificed a lot for us kids, she spent many sleepless nights worrying about us and the most important thing, she never gave up on us. In a way she helped me become who I am today.

Having a child changes your life completely and irrevocably. I remember when I found out I was going to be a Mom… I was scared and elated at the same time. Thinking back to my life before becoming a Mom, I would change many things, but never the fact of becoming a Mom. Even after years of non-existent sleep, backaches, tears of frustrations … kids don’t come with an instruction manual you know? …. and I didn’t have the benefit of my Mother’s or Grandmother’s wisdom to draw from, I would not change a thing. I think of those early years of my “mommy brain on auto-pilot” years.

As I keep telling my son, he is my life and my sunshine. His smiles are more precious than diamonds. His face is like an open book to me, I know every twitch and frown, or his rascal up-to-no-good smile.
“ How did you know, Mom? ”
“ Because I AM your Mom!!! “
Baffles him every time 😀

I look at our relationship how it changed from year to year and try to give him all the love and the hugs and the support I can as he goes thru each stage of his life. I keep reminding him that I’ve been there, done that ( got lots of t-shirts too… 😀 ), and that he can come to me any time, no matter what. We have many talks, every day and encourage him to be the best he can. It is a bit harder now with the teenage years in full bloom and there are days when I think I will not survive this stage LOL

As our child grows, we age. I never thought about death, I mean really seriously think about it, until my Father passed away 10 years ago. With the generations before me out of the picture, I am on the front line. It is a scary place. I want to live to see my son grow up, finish school, get a career, find THE girl, fall in love. I want to be there to guide him to become a good man like his Dad and both his Grandads, and make sure he is set in life.I hope he will remember me with fondness and he will remember the good times. In the meantime, I plan to live each day to the fullest. Maybe my house is not as clean as it used to be or I forgot what it used to feel like sleeping in on weekends, but I have memories of laughing, arguing, crying or being silly with my son and planning to collect many more.

peonies-2.jpg
Peonies are my fave flowers

I became a Mother a few days before Mother’s Day, so with Mother’s Day approaching, I would like to salute all the Mothers out there, and I am fortunate to call friend many wonderful Mothers. My hat off to you all, YOU ROCK!!! Especially the single Moms who have so many hats on. I know because I am one of them now. Mothers should be celebrated every day!

Happy thinking!

‘Till next time.
