Blogmas, Day 6: Las Vegas Speedway Light Show (#blogmas)

For the first time, we went out to see the light show at the Las Vegas Speedway. For one thing, we’re now living closer to it than we had before; otherwise, I doubt if we would ever go. It was a fun drive-through light show with a local radio show synchronizing the lights with Christmas music.

It’s always hard to take good photos of lights, but here are the ones that came out the best.

 

Blogmas, Day 5: Poem for Déjà Vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon (#poem #blogmas)

No new stops on the tour today so, for blogmas, I thought I’d write a poem. I’m heartened by all the interest in poetry these days, not only on WordPress but Twitter, too. Come join us in the #WritingCommunity.

Déjà Vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon

Everything in Vegas looks better at night
Gazing for miles under the desert starlight
Roaming the streets just before daylight
Clickety clank clank breaks the silence of the morning hush
Tucked away in a casino away from the commuter’s rush

Nikki fled from the Blue Diamond Saloon
Away from her assailant unseen by the moon
Taking refuge in a City she once knew
Friendships and lovers too risky to start over
Memories and fears locked in a heart frozen sober

The past leads you where you swore you’d never go
Lessons unlearned like a missile-seeking foe
Next time be careful by what you do choose
This time around with bigger stakes to lose
Too late to escape Déjà Vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon

Please join us on the Déjà Vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon publicity tour.

Blogmas, Day 4: Interview on The Writer’s Life (#blogmas)

“Everything in Vegas looks better at night.” – Nikki Durrance, Déjà Vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon

If you’re keeping up with the December blog tour for Déjà Vu…, you’ll want to to check out my interview over on The Writer’s Life.

Note: In addition to Kindle, it is also now available in Paperback.

Blogmas, Day 3: Confessions of an Eccentric Bookaholic (#blogmas)

Day 3 of #blogmas, which is actually day 2 of the Déjà Vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon blog tour, you’ll find me over at Confessions of an Eccentric Bookaholic. Check out my confessions. Check out the entire blog tour for December.

Here’s a bonus confession: Déjà Vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon is my first published suspense novel. I’m normally known for chick lit or rom com. But those who know me know my natural suspenseful way of expressing myself and keep pushing me to explore that genre. So, there you have it. With another on the way.

Blogmas, Day 2: Blog Tour Kickoff for Déjà Vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon (#blogmas)

We’re kicking off the December blog tour for Déjà Vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon over at the PUYB Virtual Book Club. Come along for the tour for everything you ever wanted to know about this psychological suspense novel and the author, who is, well me, of course.

You can peek ahead by checking out the highlights here.

Happy Blogmas, Day 1 (#blogmas)

I was watching a Maxwell Gluck (Mr. Cheezypop) video (one of the few vloggers I watch) and noticed he was doing “Vlogmas” so I thought I’d do “Blogmas” (this thing where you blog/vlog every day until Christmas).

After all, my psychological/suspense novel (Déjà Vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon) is going on tour for the month of December. You can find out the details of the entire tour here. You can also check out each day’s blog post on my web site (right where you’re at right now) for a link to that day’s tour (if there is one). On the non-tour days, I’ll blog about something (maybe what music and/or writing project I’m working on next). Who knows? I guess that’s the fun of Blogmas.

Hope to see you around!
