Greetings!

Hello my lovelies. I hope the week has been treating you well. I’ve got a bit of a teaser for my second book up on my website. Check it out: http://ambercarlyle.com/2014/11/11/what-day-is-it/

What day is it?

It’s Monday! Woo…hoo? Oh, wait, I missed my Monday post. Again. My bad. I was busy, which is still no excuse, but hey, I was busy with good things? Like working on the second book, good things? How about as an act of contrition, I share a tiny bit with you? And no, I’m not […]

Battling Anxiety

Originally, my idea was to discuss diversity in characters today. I was inspired by the ongoing crusades of a friend of mine, but I found myself floundering in the worst way this weekend. So, for now, I am tabling that discussion or mine, in lieu of discussing something more serious to me directly. I’ve mentioned […]

Book Review: Give Me

Before I get into my next review of books that I’ve really enjoyed from the Love Potion No. 11 collection (insert link), I have to at least dance and squeal over at least one of my television shows doing something for me since they returned. It’s not even so much a spoiler, and I’ll keep […]

Book Review: Hanna, Hanna, One-and-Two

A couple of weeks ago, I purchased the Love Potion No. 11 collection of novels on Amazon. In between finalizing my first novel and writing my second, I’ve been slowly making my way through the books. I’ll freely admit that Paranormal Romance isn’t my typical genre that I read. I enjoy Urban Fantasy, but I typically […]

Inspiration: Table-Top Gaming

One of my favorite activities that I get to do each week is to sit down with my friends and play our tabletop RPGs. It’s a wonderful mix of socialization, creativity, and sometimes, just a good old fashioned beating the snot out of a monster/bad guy to make ourselves feel better. I’m very fortunate to […]

Not So Picture Perfect

My first, full length novel is now available at Amazon:     New Orleans native and private investigator Yumi Matthews finds herself steeped in a murder investigation – a far cry from the vision of reuniting people with their missing loved ones. Still, she devotes herself to investigating these supposedly unsolvable mysteries as a way […]

Argh! Where did the time go?

Yes, I’ve been bad again. Months have zipped by, and I find that I have not updated like I’ve said. Sometimes, it’s just hard to keep up with the writing of the book, and that day job that I need still. So, I’ve not put in the time here like I’ve needed to. That being […]

Adaptation: A Game of Thrones Rant

I am in the midst of writing my Good Guy vs Bad Boy article. I have to stop though to address, or redress, or just expound on something that bugged the hell out of me after last night’s Game of Thrones episode. I will be discussing, to varying degrees, ideas and scenes as they were […]

Dashing Rapscallion

I will be discussing spoilers from the latest episode of Once Upon a Time. If you have not seen that episode yet, you might want to wait until after you do. I’m going to be spoiling something fairly major that happened. Still with me? Okay, let’s start with the two words that sparked most of […]
