Hi, readers! I’ve got author Tabitha Shay here today for a quick chat. Here’s the question I posed to her:
How do you deal with writer’s block?
She came up with a delightful — illustrated — reply. I loved it!
Good Morning Readers,
Writing is not only hard, but it’s a lonely job too. You’re always isolated, most times family is ignored because you’re working on a good action or sex scene and don’t want to stop to chit-chat. I almost always ignore the phone and tune out everything.
But every now and then, when I come up for air, it’s usually because I’ve painted myself into a corner and have no plan on how to escape. Hence, writer’s block rears its ugly head.
What do I do to get back in the groove? I shut down my manuscript and take some time with hubby and kids.
Or I watch movies, ones I didn’t take time to watch while writing. I’m also a hidden object game fanatic. This is when I order new games and spend two or three days solving them. It relaxes me, allows me to think on my own time and not my writing.
Once my writer’s block is resolved, it’s back to the Bat Cave and work, work, work!
Oooh! Hidden object games! I love them! What do YOU do when you need a break?

Death takes an unscheduled holiday…
Giver of Life—Nyra Winters has two abilities that no witch before her has ever possessed—the power to heal and restore life. However, her constant interference in Death’s plans makes her a target of the angry god, King Titan, ruler of the Underworld.
Seeker of Death—Dym Satarius, Prince of Death, is sent to the magical realm of Ru-Noc to collect Nyra Winters. Devoid of all emotion, Dym believes this assignment will be no different than any other—collect the witch’s soul and return to hell—job done—but something goes terribly wrong and he is stranded in Nyra’s world without his powers or the ability to return to his realm.
Injured and marooned in a realm he doesn’t understand, Dym desperately needs a stroke of magic from the one person who has every reason to hate and fear him…
