Romance, Choices and Discovery in The Rocky Creek Series


, , , ,

I’m watching Season 5 in Downton Abbey (I know I’m several seasons behind, but that is how I roll).  It is the one where the main conflict seems to be Lady Mary choosing between two suitors, both of which are rich, handsome, dark haired men. Romance throughout the ages and around the globe is drastically different. From arranged marriages to finding love on their own, there are traditions and norms that are followed. Usually. Lady Mary sure seems to be breaking all the conventions of the times in Season 5 and earning the evil eye of her Grand’mama.

If you love romance, either on the screen, on the pages of a book or in real life, The Rocky Creek Series is definitely worth discovering.  The three books in the series contain all the secrets, broken hearts, rekindling relationships, and passion of lost loves that make romantic reads beautiful. Be sure to check out What it Takes, On the Line, and Into the Light to meet characters that readers will fall in love with!








Born and raised in Virginia, author, Kathryn Ascher tried her hand at poetry and fiction in high school, but put it all aside when she went to college. After graduating with her degree in communications, she married her college sweetheart and went to work for a local radio station. When her first child was born, she became a stay-at-home mom and began spending her free time crafting and reading.

It was after the birth of her third child that Kathryn decided to give writing another try. When she picked up her first romance novel, she immediately knew that it was the genre for her. Her debut novel, What It Takes, draws from the strong lead characters, the quirky secondary characters, the settings, the humor, and, most importantly, the feeling of falling in love for the first time that initially captivated her. Her second novel, On the Line, is the Book 2 in the Rocky Creek Series. Into the Light is her third novel and will release on October 4, 2016. It is available for pre-order now.

Kathryn resides with her husband and three children in Land O’ Lakes, Florida.

A book to learn medical intuitiveness


, , , ,

I had a headache one day last week that wouldn’t quit. It was the kind that splits skulls and pops eyeballs. While I was drinking my 104th glass of water, to make sure I was totally hydrated (because dehydration is the leading trigger of headaches for me) I wondered what causes headaches. The day started like every other with the same morning routine, same food and drink, same schedule… but the headache persisted.

The body holds many mysteries and a book like Tina Zion’s Become a Medical Intuitive can help readers learn to feel more connected with their bodies and those of others.

BecomeMedicalIntuitiveIn addition to writing this book, Zion has developed a complete weekend course to teach the intuitive skills that she is passionate about. She has recently been in Florida, Michigan, Illinois as well as New Zealand and Canada. She is a 4th generation psychic, registered nurse, Gestalt trained counselor, certified in clinical hypnotherapy, and blends all of her training and experience into her training and her writing.

And here is more about Become a Medical Intuitive: The Complete Developmental Course

This book provides a complete training experience to become a medical intuitive. Each chapter advances you, step-by-step, to intensify your psychic abilities and develop your x-ray perception. A medical background is not necessary to excel as a medical intuitive. “Become a Medical Intuitive” provides you with the following (and more):

  • How to take charge of your energy field;
  • How imagination and intuition work together;
  • See, feel, and sense the entire person on all levels;

  • Actual case studies and assessments to learn from.

You are already intuitive. It is only a matter of noticing all of the information you are receiving in a different way. The medical intuitive’s life is feeling, sensing, knowing, and perceiving on multiple levels with all of your senses. When you have completed the course contained in this book, you will have truly developed x-ray vision.

Zion has also written a book for Reiki students, teachers and practitioners:

A book for fans of Merle Kilgore


, , , , ,

thesearemypeopleOf all the American Idol seasons, my favorite winner is Carrie Underwood. No matter what size city I live in, I’ll always be a small town girl with a love for country music. I’m not sure if it is the guitar chords, the lyrics that always seem to feel authentic or the country twang that fills out the voices of its singers, but I love it all.

If you’ve been a fan of country music for a long time, you’ll remember a singer and songwriter named Merle Kilgore. He’s in the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame for his words and tunes are still heard today. His most famous song is “Ring of Fire” that he co-wrote with June Carter Cash. It just happens to be in the top four country songs of all times according to CMT.

Kilgore’s grandson, Mark Rickert, has written a tell-all book called These Are My People that can’t be missed by country music fans. The stories of double dating with Elvis Presley and carrying Hank Williams Jr.’s guitar are accompanied by many black and white photographs from the family collection.

Learn about Kilgore’s life on and off stage in this new release. It will be available from WriteLife Publishing on September 27, 2016 and is available for pre-order now.
