Beneath the Surface by Lynn H. Blackburn

series: Dive Team Investigations
Genre: Fiction/Suspense
Publisher: Revell
Publication Year: 2018
Purchase and Synopsis:

4 out of 5 stars.

This book was well done! I enjoyed it greatly and it kept me reading. The overall storyline was easy to follow, but hard to figure out the ending, just like a proper suspense book should do. The plot kept moving quickly enough that I was constantly turning pages. I think I broke a current record for myself in how fast I read it. It felt good to breeze through a book because it would have been hard to put it down.Read More »

Feelin’ Spring // Outfit

It has been a bit warmer for, like, two days last week? What can I say? Us northerners get even a tiny taste of spring and it’s time to break out the tank tops. LOL! It was warm enough one day that we had the doors open. *swoon* So I am definitely feeling motivated and inspired by spring for my wardrobe. I am going to be doing a HUGE overhaul of my wardrobe, which is really phase two because I got rid of garbage bags full of stuff a while ago, so know that the fashion posts might be a bit few and far between still for a bit. Thanks for sticking with me anyway!

Writing Prompt 059: Part 6

My apologies for getting this to you a day late. Life happens. ;D


FREDERICK: 6th character from the left.
Phrase to include: “Wow. I didn’t think that would work.” “Neither did I.” “It was your idea!” “So?”


Frederick smiled softly and settled down for sleep. The others were already in varying degrees of sleep. The embers from the fire burned low and cast a soft glow over the campsite. He shivered slightly and scooted closer to the little bit of heat the emanated from the coals. The smell of acrid smoke and musty wood filled his nostrils. He pulled his book closer to himself. He never let it get out of reach. He hugged it to his stomach as he curled on his side and closed his eyes.Read More »

How to Write More: The Shelving Process

Writing Blog Post

The Shelving Process.

When it comes to writing, us creatives are, well, creative. We have so many ideas flying around that it can be hard to keep it straight. But in the defense of productivity, we need to utilize a process called shelving.

I don’t know if Shelving is a real thing, but it is for me and I made it up for my own peace of mind. Others may call it something else, but that is what I have chosen to call it. The definition of Shelving is taking something, usually a project, dream, or idea and putting it on the shelf for the time being until it can be taken down again in it’s proper time and used or achieved.Read More »

Coffee Lover’s Book Tag

Coffee Lovers book tag

I am super stoked about this post! Thanks so much to Kate from Once Upon an Ordinary for tagging me! I love coffee and books, so this is going to be fun! Hold on just one second, I need a mug. 🙂

1. Black coffee–name a series that is tough to get into but has hardcore fans.

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I have been absolutely shocked by the amount of people that love these books. They sound so weird to me, I’m not going to lie. My mind literally hurts from trying to understand when I read the synopsis of book one, then two gets worse, and three just looks downright creepy. This is my personal opinion of course, but maybe someday I will give the book a skim-read try, but as for now, they hold no appeal to me.Read More »

Writing Prompt 058: Part 5


JACK: Fifth from the left.

Jack’s stomach started to feel queasy after eating that frog and he wondered if he had cooked it over the puny campfire long enough. He rolled over to see Frederick studying his book again. He rolled his eyes, of what use was book learning.

“You, know! There really is no use of you keeping on reading like that. It’s not going to help us any.” Jack was testing Frederick.

He looked up calmly at Jack. “You may think so, however, We all do need what I read in this book. Would you like to read some?”

“NO! I don’t want to read your stupid book!” He rolled over irritably and lay on his side, pulling his blanket closer.Read More »
