Monday Morning Musings

Hello, Fire Enthusiasts. Happy Easter Week to you and yours, whether you are religious, simply enjoying a week off from school or work, or looking forward to a long weekend.

I thought that I would take a moment to do a bit of PR for a buddy of mine, Anne Kleinberg. She is the author of a marvelous novel that I just finished reading Saturday afternoon, entitled: Menopause in Manhattan. As the title may suggest, it is not aimed toward the teenager demographic; however, though it is about "women of a certain age", I found it warm, funny, engaging and moving. I liked it so much that I am going to give it an extensive review and just thought I would give you a head's up.

If you have a moment and think you might be interested in adding to your Kindle's collection, take a quick glance at the reviews that Anne is getting already. If you need a break from all things Paranormal, now's your chance. At .99 cents how could you possibly go wrong?

Now for a bit of hardward to give away. My good friend, Carole Gill over at Bloody Good Vampires, and the author of The House on Blackstone Moor just received a blog award that she is now sharing with me. It is called: The Liebster Blog Award. The idea is to recognize those who have contributed to blogging. It is geared toward those who have less than 300 followers.

So, with that in mind, I have selected a mix of older and newer buddies of mine who span the spectrum in terms of the subjects that they blog about. We've got a little bit of everything with this group and I hope you'll pay them a visit and get to know them.

Thanks again, Carole. For anyone interested in a great, dark read, see my review of Carole's novel that I did over at Something Wicked This Way Comes here.


  1. Hi Jimmy!

    You and your family DEFINITELY need to visit Boston, you know I'm a fan!

    Congrats on your award and thanks for all the new friend linkage! I'm off to click around!

    Have a great week!


  2. Thanks, Kristi. That was very nice of you to stop by. You have a great week as well.

  3. Hey,Jimmy. Hope your week is good in all things.

    Thanks for the Plug!

    "Menopause in Manhattan"--mine would be called "Menopause on the Prairie" {;

  4. Happy happy Monday!

    I love the title 'Menopause in Manhattan' - sounds like a fun read. Thanks for the head-up; I'm off to check it out!

    Hope all's well with you.

  5. Ha! Thanks for the note, Lorelei. We should call it Menopause in Paris, and then go on a road trip there!! It really is a great read. I can't wait to review it. I realize it's a bit or work, but enjoy the award.

  6. Hi, Talli. How goes it? Thanks for stopping by. It's always nice to see you. I hope everyone checks out the novel. I thought it was great.
    Take care.


  7. Thank you, Jimmy! I really appreciate this!

  8. You're quite welcome, Michele. I know these awards can be a little bit of work sometimes. I hope it's okay and found you at a good time.

  9. The title of Menopause in Manhattan is one of the best I've ever heard. That alone is clever, so I can imagine how great the book is! And congratulations on your well-deserved blog award :D

  10. Thank you for the award, Jimmy.

    I'm glad I' finally online to see it. --at least until the next storm takes out my internet tower. It's been a long week.

  11. Congrats on your award, and I am looking forward to your review! Have a lovely Easter.


Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate you taking the time. I'll get back to you here or on one of the other social networks. It's not like we're not on all of them, right? ;) Also, if you're here to give me an award - bless you. However, your friendship and visits are more than enough. Thanks and blessings.
