Writing from the Dark Side

Heh! I started out calling this blog post "Blogging from the Darkside" and then went to "Writing from the Darkside" and then went on to finally arrive at "Pubbing from the Darkside".  This little tidbit of information should be able to give you a little hint over what has been happening at the Oliver Homestead since I last posted.

Big News! I am part of a great collaboration with a collection of Writers who decided that if a romance book should be done, it should be done by us! Hence, the beginning of what is now know as Welcome to Serenity Harbor, Maine.

This is huge! This is ginormous! All of the books are set around the fictional coastal Maine town of Serenity Harbor. We didn't limit genre, only that their characters fall in love in Maine.

For me, this was a return to something that I love... well, yes... it was a return to writing. I've blogged a little bit about some of my struggles with illness that left with being unable to write for a whi…


Yup! I'm entering my latest contest into the Beach Bum Book Bonanza! For anyone who signs up for my new yahoogroups reader list at I will put their name into the monthly drawing for a bunch of goodies. In celebration of my latest release I'm giving away a download of The Three Truths of Katie Talmadge... it's been getting great reviews and it's the perfect summer read. Love, hope and a little magic all in one great story! Also, I'm giving away a book thong (sorry, not a better word for it yet...) that is one of my own fabulous creations along with a charm bracelet that I am specially making to go along with the release of Three Truths. (When you read the book you'll find out why this is so appropriate!) So, if you want to get in on the action and have a great read for those long summer nights then go ahead and sign up... And don't forget to check out The Three Truths of Katie Talmadge on my website


It's hard to believe that it is actually available. I sold this book on my birthday almost two years ago! Let me give you a bit of a peek at what it's about... Katie Talmadge is perfectly content with her staid, predictable... sometimes boring life. Yes, she could definitely use a helping hand in the little flower shop that she runs in Salem, Massachusetts. And sometimes there just aren't enough funds to cover all of the extra costs and repairs that have to be done. But for Katie, having a routine means safety and consistency. So... with just one week until Halloween and Salem in it's usual scaling up of events for the holiday Katie gets the surprise of her life when Rita Thorton enters her shop. Rita is every eccentric aunt, odd relative or just plain charming-but-slightly-batty-and-loveable person we all have in our lives. And Rita is on a mission. She's convinced that Katie has one week to discover three very big trut…
