It’s that time again, dear readers. Time for our monthly author spotlight!
*cue wild applause*
This month, our spotlight shines on Kimberly Davis Basso – author of I’m a Little Brain Dead. She is an award winning author and playwright, and has worked as a stage director and producer for over twenty five years. Her book is a true life account of the stroke and all of its little repercussions she had to deal with a the young age of 44.
Nominated for several awards, including: INDIES Book of the Year in Humor from Foreword Reviews Winner, Writers Digest Self Published Awards – Honorable Mention for Life StoriesWinner Finalist for Humor, 2018 International Book AwardsWinner Finalist for Humor, 2018 Readers Favorite AwardsWinner Top Ten Indie Book of 2018.
Having just read and reviewed the book myself, I can easily see why it was nominated for so many awards. The book is available on Amazon as well as other book sites. Or, if you’d prefer, you can get in touch with the author herself:

My little blog has hit another milestone today.
Thank you to every one who has liked one of my posts.
Emma would like to express her thanks as well, though you might want to turn your volume down. 😀
When @the_writereads approached me on Twitter to join their queue for Site of the Day, I of course jumped on the chance. As I looked through my posts to pick some to share, I realized that while I have plenty of actual reviews, there weren’t many other kinds of posts.
So now, I’m going to rectify that issue…
My business cards. If you’ve seen my reviews on Goodreads, you’ll see that I use them as my logo.
These are my actual current bookshelves. I had twice as many books at one time, but the great flood of 2016 destroyed a good many of them. Believe me, there is nothing harder for a book lover than having to shovel sodden books in to a wheelbarrow to be taken away.
These are some of the books I’ve purchased or were given to me since starting this blog. Because of limited shelf space, I don’t buy books like I used to and instead rely on e-books and my local library.
And finally, my partner in crime and the best friend a girl could ever have. That is Emma and she is my baby. She also oversees any photoshoot I do, as you can see. She makes sure just the right amount of dog hair is included.
So far it’s been an interesting whirlwind of a ride. My 5 year anniversary will be coming up soon and I am hopeful there will be many more!
Hello to all my dear readers!
I apologize for my brief disappearance, but if you are following me on Twitter, it is easy to see why. For those who do not, allow me to give a brief summary of this past week:
On Saturday the 15th, I was at work and received a text from my mom. She said my dad was being taken to the hospital as he had slipped and was feeling nauseous, etc. Turns out he had had a mild heart attach and in doing the heart catheterization the doctors learned that he had several major blockages. He was admitted to the hospital where he had open heart surgery Tuesday morning and ended up having a quadruple bypass.
As of today (Friday) he is still in the ICU but is doing well and will hopefully be moved to a real room in a day or so and after several days there will be able to come home.
Naturally, this has taken up the majority of my attention and I am sure you all understand.
It is during this time of the year that I generally go on hiatus from posting. I continue to read and one can always keep up with what I’m reading by checking out my Goodreads list, but new reviews won’t be posted until the new year.
Until that point, I want to wish all my readers a happy end of year. Whatever you celebrate, may it be a enjoyable time. As always, I can be reached via my Twitter or my e-mail and I look forward to seeing you all in the new year!
Check it out – I finally made it to 100 followers! Thank you to every last one of you!
Good afternoon dear readers!
In an effort to update my blog and make it a bit more visually pleasing, you might notice small changes over the next few updates. They won’t be large changes as I am already happy overall with how my blog looks. It will just be small tweaks and such, especially in regards to linking all my social media accounts together.
As the changes take place, if there are any you like or dislike, or if any of the links do not work, please let me know. I welcome any and all feedback.
Wow, it is so hard to believe that it’s been 4 years here already! Four years – and while there have been many ups and downs, I haven’t regretted a single moment. So far it has been a fun ride and I am looking forward to many more!
I’m so proud, dear readers. I’ve got my first badge! Hopefully it will be the first of many more.
Today is my birthday, dear readers! I received some very nice gifts from my family this year. Including a book that I have been wanting to read and will be reviewing some time soon.
As I’m sure you can see there is a bit of a theme. Can you guess who one of my favorite characters is?
Aside from my love of reading, one of my other loves is sewing and the creating of costumes. My most recent creation is this purple jacket here:
Astute readers will likely recognize the jacket as resembling the one worn by Missy in Doctor Who. A matching skirt is being made to be worn with it.
