Conversations with Death, both books 1 and 2, are fun, fast paced and engrossing. Do yourself a favor and check them out 🙂
Conversations with Death: A Love Story, now available on Amazon Kindle.
“Death stopped by far too often, as far as I was concerned. I needed a way to deal with my rage. I was furious. So, I decided to hunt down and, if possible, kill Death.
When I wrote the very first Conversation, I was ready for a fight. I never expected to write a second Conversation, let alone an entire book full of them. But something happened when I met and started talking to Death…things got funny, gifts were exchanged, cats, birds and fish became involved, and while all that was taking place, I learned what Life and Death were really all about.
We all have our own truth and this is mine. Conversations with Death is a funny, loving and romantic give and take between a Party Girl and Death itself.”
Conversations with Death: The Love Story Continues, also available on Amazon Kindle.
“The relationship between Party Girl and Death continues. Her questions are never ending and breakthroughs simply lead to more questions. Living together means that Party Girl gets to meet some of Death’s coworkers, specifically the Death Angels, who keep things interesting. Death Cat and Pretty Boy move their relationship forward. And a spur of the moment decision on the part of Party Girl and Death, adds a new twist to their lives as they travel down the road between life and death.”

Brian and I went to Haslam’s today 🙂 It is one of my favorite places in St. Petersburg.
Haslam’s Book Store
2025 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, Florida 33713
The place is huge. It is so cool to wander around and see the diverstiy…they have old, used books as well as all the current best sellers. They have some rare first editions and signed copies…some of these are kept in locked cases but many are one the shelves next to $2 books. You never know what you are going to stumble across.
You really cannot see the size and scope of the place through these pictures. But I will tell you they actually have little maps of the place so you can find your way around!
Oh and by the way, Jack Kerouac is rumored to still haunt the store. He supposedly still moves his books to more prominent display locations as he did in life. It is funny becaus everytime I go in I always spot new and different things…AND I always see a couple Kerouac!
Haslam’s was started in 1933 in the Depression by John and Mary Haslam, both avid readers, to provide other readers with used magazines and books at bargain prices.
Haslam’s celebrated 80 years this past December. Amazing, really when so many other book stores are closing…both indepedent and big box stores.
Today was fun AND I had to show remarkable restraint… oh I wish i was independently wealthy so i could take stacks of these home with me!!

Reblogging her announcement below:
Do you know/follow Helen Valentina? I have been following her for awhile now and she is an amazing poet 🙂 AND she has just released her first novel The Seed, now available on lulu.com, iTunes (link via lulu.com) and Amazon Kindle.
Sara Fraser, a solitary artist, is haunted by her dreams of a past life where she is deeply in love—a concept and experience foreign to her waking existence. Just as she is becoming known for her artistic endeavors, Sara launches a new series of paintings based on her dreams.
Robert Masters, a journalist in a passionless marriage, interviews Sara about her latest work, only to discover a personal connection to her paintings: it seems he is the man in her dreams. But when Robert, a man who prefers to peer inside others’ lives instead of his own, suddenly finds the intrigue of a possible shared history catapulting him into an intense romance with Sara, a story from the past begins to haunt both of them. As the lovers contemplate leaving the waking world to follow their dreams, the possibility of happiness dictates them to take risks they never could have imagined before.
The Seed is a story of truth, loss, and the price two people must pay for love.
For lulu.com, you can find both the paperback and ebook versions at her Author Spotlight page plus also a link to iTunes to download if that is your preferred mode. The spotlight page is at:
