Day 2 Denver pre-GRL #GRLRetreat2017

Day 1 was traveling and getting to the house Marc (M), MTSnow (S), and I rented before GRL. We all converged to Denver in one piece, hung out last night after dinner in a mall food court, and crashed.
Picture of the standing horse at the Denver airport. We had to circle a lot while we waited for M to arrive from customs. Not the best picture. I’ll see if I can get a closer one with my picture software. And crop it a bit.

Day 2 was leisurely awakening this morning, a Costco and grocery run for the week, and returning back to the house for lunch. Just finished lunch and now I’m ready to nap. I’m on vacation. I can nap if I want to!

Picture below is a bush full of finches, it looks like. They are so cute. Their was this morning on the way to Costco.

The house is beautiful and plenty of room. The owner lives in the basement and rents out the upstairs via Airbnb. He got me a candy thermometer for the making of Divinity, a little Goergia I’m bringing to the retreat. I’ll probably do that this evening or tomorrow. I’m going to bring some just for K-lee to distract/cheer up from the pain she’s been having. Don’t worry, I’ll have plenty for people to try if you are attending.

Bedroom I’m sleeping in awhile at the house. That’s my purse/belt on the end of the bed. More pictures of the house later.

We’re going to do a planning session and see about what we want to accomplish before going to the retreat hotel on Wednesday. Perhaps I’ll read or maybe write. I’m feeling a little inspired–something about not working helps–so I might pull out my laptop or iPad. I definitely would like to catch up on reviewing.

I’m planning on wearing my new Rainbow Gold Reviews (RGR) t-shirt or hoodie Wednesday that S brought us. I’ll try to post pictures once I get them. I brought my camera, but I have my phone camera too. There is something to say for ease of posting to social media with the phone camera.

I going to take my nap now. More later. ūüôā

Author Chat over at Rainbow Gold Reviews #AuthorChat #FacebookEvent #Prizes #Giveaways

Hola!

So, I’m being an official author (as opposed to an unofficial one??? *shrug* dunno) and will be doing an hour-long author chat over at Rainbow Gold Reviews (RGR) Facebook 2nd Anniversary Marathon Author Chat event. I will be online over there with Adan DePiaz (co-author of Coil Me Up) and Annabeth Albert starting at 10 PM CDT (Central) until 11 PM CDT. That’s 11 PM EDT (Eastern) for me. *G* There will be time zone converting on the event page. I think.

Come join us for a celebration of RGR’s 2nd Anniversary (of which I have been a part of since the beginning) where there are more than 50 authors to chat with in the LGBT writing arena (including myself), prizes, giveaways, prizes, chats, prizes… did I mention prizes? *BIG GRIN* It starts at midnight CDT 4/1/2016 and lasts until midnight 4/2/2016.

I’ll be in and out during the day because… work.

So bring your questions about our works. Bring your questions about any authors participating. Who knows? You may get a prize for participating…

‘Where There’s Smoke’ by Nico Jaye #LGBT #Review

I’m back over at Rainbow Gold Reviews!

Rainbow Gold Reviews

Eloreen¬†reviews ‚ÄĚWhere There‚Äôs Smoke‚Äô by Nico Jaye. ¬†Part of the 2015 Daily Dose ‚Äď Never Too Late package set. ¬†Published by Dreamspinner Press on June¬†1st, 2015. ¬†58 pages

We were provided a copy in exchange for an honest opinion.

Why I read:¬† I wanted to read something easy and short. I asked the other RGR reviewers for recommendations, and this one was available. Then I saw it involved a firefighter. I‚Äôm so there. Firefighters, along with most any story involving men in uniforms are always on the top of my list. ūüôā

Eloreen Moon gives 10/10 pots of gold for L. Dean Pace-Frech’s “A Place To Call Their Own”

Another review on Rainbow Gold Reviews. ūüėČ Enjoy!

Rainbow Gold Reviews

Why I read this book :¬†A big thank you to Dean for providing us with the book for an honest review. ūüôā I really enjoy cowboys/westerns/ranchers/historicals. ¬†This story¬†has elements of all of them. ¬†I wanted to read his book because Dean made my morning on a day that turned into a nightmare. ¬†Thank you Dean. ¬†Add men on horses in jeans? Bonus. ¬†Historicals? I‚Äôm there. ¬†Two men falling in love? Sold. I was glad I did.

Is it possible for two Civil War veterans to find their place in the world on the Kansas Prairie?

When the War Between the States ended in 1865 many Americans emerged from the turmoil energized by their possibilities for the future. Frank Greerson and Gregory Young were no different. After battling southern rebels and preserving the Union, the two men set out to battle the Kansas Prairie and build a life together. Frank…

Eloreen Moon gives 9/10 pots of gold for “You Can See Me” by A.E. Via

Another review over at Rainbow Gold Reviews: You Can See Me by A.E. Via.

Rainbow Gold Reviews

Why I chose to read: 

Thank you to A.E. for the opportunity to read You Can See Me. I really enjoyed the story very much.  I had seen some comments online that Nothing Special was about a character from You Can See Me; and so, I thought there might be a series, or at least a sequel, going on with these two books.  While Leo from Nothing Special is in You Can See Me, mentioned by Prescott Vaughan near the beginning of the story, he is not featured and these books can be read out of order.  Because I thought it might be a sequel, I read You Can See Me first before Nothing Special as I try to read any stories that have a sequence to them.  It helps cut down the confusion.

Normally, I review in order too, but Nothing Special had a blog tour on our…
