So Much Rain – No Cookouts – Flowers doing well!

We have had so much rain the past two weeks that we haven’t been able to have our usual cookouts and enjoy our deck. Sigh! I wish we could send all the rain to other parts of the country that are arid and in dire need of some precipitation. I will curtail my complaining since I think they are in a worse place without rain. I would do a rain dance for them but I’m afraid we would get more rain ourselves here.

Some of my flowers are doing well while others are dying from being overwatered. Yikes! I will share only the good ones. The one good thing about all the rain is that my husband who usually waters all the plants (also plants them) got a reprieve from watering for a little while.

Mini petunias
More petunias
Petunias on the wall
Petunias and Sunflowers
Dahlias
Passion Flower plant with lots of blossoms at the bottom
Mint plant
Pond lush and green

The pond in the back of our yard is lush and green. The bittersweet along the fence is abundant and spreading out profusely. It will have to be cut back in another year or so. The red winged blackbirds along with other birds love the pond and all its vegetation. They nest in there and care for their young.

Today we got a shock as we were sitting at breakfast a good-sized hawk went flying into our window and startled us. He must have been after one of the birds at the feeders nearby and veered the wrong way into the window. Of course it happened so fast I didn’t get a photo. Oh well. I don’t think he got the birds. Thank goodness.

Yesterday I got a surprise from a little chipmunk. I was doing a workout downstairs in our basement on my tapping routine when I heard a scratching sound at the slider. When I turned around I saw a chipmunk tapping on the glass. I asked him what he wanted and he scurried away. I resumed my routine and he did it again with the same results. He hurried away and didn’t come back again.

This has happened also with birds who tap on our windows or peek in to try to get our attention when the bird feeders are empty. They are clever creatures and know who feeds them. They must think we are feeble and forgetful. Haha!

Rose of Sharon
Rose of Sharon

We have 17 Rose for Sharon plants in and around our yard. They are so gorgeous! Many of them used to have purple or lilac blossoms but now more of them are showing only white blossoms. I am waiting to see how many of the ones that did not blossom yet will have purple or white flowers. Ten of them are still not showing any flowers. I will share them as soon as I see some.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. I hope you will come back again real soon. Thank you also for your kind support of me, my books and blog and also for all the reviews you have posted wherever my books are sold.

More Additions to Saltwater Tank!

Life in a 95-gallon saltwater tank is fleeting. If you have been reading my posts about our fish tank you will note that we had three anemones. They were flourishing and happy but they are no longer here. They passed. We still don’t know what we did wrong. We fed them and provided rocks for them to settle on – but all to no avail. They might have made it if the clown fish had hosted them. Sigh!

Anemones who passed recently and wrasse above them

We have added a couple more fish to the tank. We had a die off recently and the only two fish that were left were two clown fish. They became territorial since they owned the tank by themselves and got used to that fact.

It is difficult to keep track of which fish we have had over the years, reason why I am always snapping photos of the tank so I can remember.

We now have two clowns, a gamma, brown tang, wrasse, spiny puffer, rabbit fish and coral beauty. The newest ones are the puffer and brown tang.

Rabbit fish, 2 clown fish and a spiny puffer – tail showing

Puffer, rabbit fish, gamma (on left), clown fish, brown tang in front with bluish tail, coral beauty on right
gamma (purple & yellow), brown tang (with blue tail), rabbit fish (yellow), 2 clown fish (striped)

Puffer has been hiding up at the filter. It may be that someone in the tan was bothering him. We had that happen to the brown tang when we first put him in. He was being harassed by the coral beauty. They are now getting along fine. Sometimes the fish become territorial and assert themselves with the other fish. Once they settle their differences and where they want to sleep they fall in line just like a bunch of kids.

We do keep a close watch on the new arrivals so that they are safe. We scold the ones who bully them. The coral beauty would hide and leave the tang alone when I raised my hand and pointed at him to stop bothering the tang.

Puffer hiding out
Feeding time – everyone is out except puffer who is still hiding

We used to have another puffer who grew to be quite large. He had beautiful blue eyes too. He was featured on a fellow author’s blog, Tori Zigler, and I also did other posts about him. Check out this post and others by putting in fish tank in search.

Thank you for stopping by to read this post. I hope you enjoyed seeing our new fish in their home. We will keep a watch on puffer to make sure he eats. John already called the fish store and they said he was probably being bothered by another fish. We hope he finds his place in the tank soon and makes some friends.

Thank you for your kind support of me, my books and blog and for any reviews you may have posted wherever my books are sold. I greatly appreciate the reviews! Please keep them coming! They are the only way that Amazon will recognize our books as worthy to promote. Please help make that happen! Thank you, readers!

Busy working on my WIP! Sorry for no Posts lately! Watch for this new Book coming this summer!

Sorry for writing less posts lately. I have been busy with my WIP! I have a cover for it but not ready to share it just yet. I want to complete the editing stages of the story then I will post it for you. My husband did a lovely job on the cover. I hope you like it as much as I do.

The story keeps growing as I edit. I keep thinking of other things to add or change. This YA fantasy series is intended for 13+ audience. But I think it is suitable for the 10+ audience in Book 1 at present unless I add more violence. But don’t hold me to that just yet. I plan on adding more scenes that may cause my characters to have more violent behavior. I never know what they are going to do. They control the story line through most of it. I watch them closely and will rein them in if need be.

Being a writer of off-the-cuff material or a pantser is an exciting thing. I never know how the story will end because the characters keep changing things up a bit. I am like a reader and I read along as I type. My fingers fly across the keyboard and my husband who is close by working on another children’s book usually asks me where I am going in such a hurry. I guess my fingers on the keyboard sound like a runaway motor though softer.

I am already thinking about Book 2 in this series. I don’t know where the characters will go or what they will do. I hope they have some ideas because I am clueless. When I think about the task I have ahead of me with five more books, I cringe! Yikes! What am I going to write about? Will they lead the way again as they did in the first book? Will anyone want to read this series? I hate to think about that! It is always a worry that one’s story will not be accepted or liked.

When I began this story over ten years ago I had no idea where it was going. It was just a fun thing to do. As I mentioned before in another post I wrote this story the same time I wrote Lubelia Alycea. I was a little nervous about publishing the historical novel dedicated to the memory of my grandmother. But once I completed it and received such wonderful reviews I was thrilled and relieved. I guess I feel the same way about this new book. Will readers like it?

In the meantime get your children into magic/mystery/time travel/ghosts/friendship with Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series 1-6 and Abby & Holly Series Books 1-6. These multi-award winning books will hook your children in and they will be reading all summer and learning important life lessons at the same time. Parents are reading and loving them too! Check out all the wonderful reviews of these series on Amazon.

When I wrote these two series I tried to publish two books a year to keep my readers interested. I hope to do the same with this new series – two books this year, two next year and two the following year. If I get really energized I may two three next year and finish off the following ear. Sigh! We’ll see! I’m not getting any younger or getting more energy that I noticed each year that passes. I promise to do my best. I don’t want to tarnish my reputation for publishing 4-5 books a year! My goal this year was four books. So far we have published two with two more in the works. We will make it! Yay!!

Are you ready for a new YA fantasy series? I would like to hear your thoughts about it. I will keep you abreast of new developments with this series. That is if the characters let me in on their plans.

A Guest Post on Chris Rice Cooper’s Blog about Hunting Mariah!

It’s funny how we can stumble upon a link and realize it was forgotten. Well, I was looking over my FB account, messages and such and came upon this guest post on CHRIS RICE COOPER BLOG is ART and HUMANITY Framed In The PhotoFeature Story : Search results for J.E. Spina

It is quite old news now but I thought it would be nice to share it since I don’t think I ever did. I had only 31 books books at that time. Now I have 35 with two more in the works. Thank you, Chris Rice Cooper, for the post!

Hunting Mariah – Kindle edition by Spina, JE. Mystery, Thriller & Suspense Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

Hunting Mariah by [JE Spina]
Hunting Mariah – my first novel

BLURB:

An insane killer, obsessed with blood and death, seeks revenge with those he perceives wronged him. He is now on the loose. His next victim may be Mariah.

Mariah has lost her memory. Will she remember what has transpired in her past? Can Mariah escape this deadly killer’s grasp. Will she finally be safe? Will the killer be apprehended?

Hunting Mariah was my first novel. It was quite a change for me from writing children’s books for PS-Grade 3 and MG/PT/YA chapter books. They were sweet and innocent with life lessons for children. Writing them I could be a kid again. It was so fun!

Once I began writing this novel I had to grow up a lot. I had to think like an adult and share the ugly side of life and the horrendous things that happen to people. I didn’t like it but I had no choice but to write this story.

Why, you ask? Well, some of my stories come from dreams I have had – and they are not all pleasant. In fact, they are quite violent in nature much to my chagrin. I wake up shaking at times and don’t want to go back to sleep. I feel as if I am in a Steven King movie and it keeps going around and around in my head. The only way I can get it out is to write it down and then I can sleep peacefully. Of course, that is until the next crazy dream comes to me. None of my dreams have been as violent as this one, thank goodness!

I say a little more about this in the above quest post. I hope you enjoy learning more about my writing and if you have not yet read Hunting Mariah or its sequel, Mariah’s Revenge, please check them out on Amazon or Barnes & Noble today. I promise you will not be disappointed. In fact you will not be able to put either book down! Hang on tight for a wild ride! Forget the dishes, laundry and dinner. You will read right through all of that and more until the shocking ending! Pick up the sequel to continue the story. Both of these books were Finalists in Authorsdb First Lines Contests!

J.E. Spina: Hunting Mariah – A Wonderful Review!

It isn’t because Hunting Mariah reminded me of my own in progress novel that I really loved this book, although that didn’t hurt. There’s a serial …

Book 1 of a New Fantasy Series for Young Adults (13+) coming from Jemsbooks! Watch for Cover Reveal!

I am excited to announce that I have a new Fantasy Series coming soon – Book 1 will be published (fingers crossed) in August of 2021! There will be six books in the series. I wrote this story many years ago at the same time that I wrote my historical novel, Lubelia Alycea. I wrote these two books simultaneously. When I grew tired of writing about history I swapped over to the fantasy one. It was fun and stimulating at the same time. I found that my creativity was sparked even more when going between two completely different genres.

I am in the editing stages of Book 1 of the Fantasy Series now. It’s funny how one’s writing can change over the years as practice and knowledge of writing increases and improves. I have had to make many changes in my sentence structure, grammar and punctuation, and content. I hope to finish up soon and send it along to my Beta Readers. This is another different genre for me to share with them. I hope they like it.

A sneak peek of the cover will be provided as soon as my husband creates one for me. He is busily working on Book 6 of the dragon series so I hate to disturb him just yet. He has to create the cover for that book too. Poor guy. I am such a slave driver! Sigh! I may have to give him a raise but I need to sell more books first. So please help me out with that – buy more books soon! Ha!

Even though I have books for MG/PT/YA like the Davey & Derek Series and Abby & Holly Series, this new series will be for ages 13+ while the other two series are for ages 9-13. The first book can be read by 9-13 but the next books may not be suitable for them. Though there is so much violence on TV, on the news and in books that this series is mild in comparison. All my books for children and YA will never have any foul language. Even with my 18+ books I never use certain language since it disturbs me too. Parents will always feel good if their children read my books.

This series is still in my mind and not completely done in stone. I think ages 10+ could read the first book. But things may change in the succeeding books that will make them more suitable for 13+. As I write the other five books over the next year or so I will keep parents abreast about the content and whether it is safe for 10+ or not. I think this middle-grade age group needs to have more entertaining reading. As for the 13+ they need something that is not too grown up just yet but entertaining enough to keep their interest. I will do my best to entertain both age groups without alienating the parents with too much violence.

Please check out all my books by clicking on the covers to the right of this post or by going directly to Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Thank you.

Here are some of the award-winning MG/PT/YA books to read while you wait for the new series to begin. Enjoy!

MG/PT/YA books are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. I hope you will come back again real soon for more entertaining posts. Thank you for your kind support of me, my books, blog and for all the reviews you may have already posted. Please keep your reviews coming wherever my books are sold. They are deeply appreciated! Your help is needed in getting me to reach my goal of being a successful author before I leave this world. Blessings!

Some More Fish Added to our Tank!

We now have two clown fish, three anemones, a Foxface, Lubbock’s Fancy Wrasse, Gold Spotted Rabbit Fish, a Coral Beauty and a Gamma. They all appeared so far to be getting along.

Foxface in front to the left with black on face, above him is the Gold Spotted Rabbit Fish, above him is the Gamma.
Foxface on left with Rabbit Fish (same family), gamma above and Anemones in front – orange with white tentacles
Gamma, Rabbit fish, Coral Beauty, Clown fish, Wrasse all swimming together around the anemones.

I think the anemones are trying to entice the fish with its tentacles. If a fish gets too close the anemone can sting the fish and pull it into its body and eat it slowly. The fish will be stunned and not be able to get away. It hasn’t happened yet but I hope the fish stay alert and away from it.

It is fascinating to watch them. I could stand there in front of the tank for hours glued to it. But Foxface doesn’t like that and neither do the clown fish who feel as if I am threatening to infringe on their territory. As I write this Foxface has hidden inside one of the rock caves and has turned brown with his fins standing up in defense. I guess it’s time I move away and give them some space.

Here are a couple more photos I just snapped of most of the fish and one of Foxface hiding out in the cave.

Foxface In cave, wrasse out front with anemones
Gamma, Coral Beauty, rabbit fish, and anemones

I noticed recently that one of the anemones looks like he is gone to the fish tank beyond. Now we are down to two anemones. I have a feeling that the large anemone might have drained him of life. He sat on him for a long time and now he looks a little decrepit. So sad.

Small anemone hanging in there, large one finishing off the third anemone

I guess it is the fight to the finish where only the strongest survive. It’s the way of life in the animal kingdom. Sad to say. The fish are all doing well so far. The wrasse is swimming around the anemones hoping to get a taste of what is left of the third anemone. He doesn’t stand a chance to grab a tentacle. They are all gone already.

Having fish as pets is fascinating. I love watching them in their environment. It’s so relaxing. We do take good care of them for their duration of life. They eat well and grow large and look healthy. The larger the tank the larger the fish will grow.

The two fish we lost recently had long lives and grew to be several inches long. Here is a photo of the trigger and the hippo tang (blue fish like Dori in the Nemo movie) who were well cared for.

Hippo tang (Dori), Tang (dark blue) another Foxface, two gammas, (purple and yellow), tip of a wrasse on left, tomato clown on right, and two blue damsels in center bottom

The photo above is of several fish we had in the past. The last two to die off from this group were the Trigger and Hippo Tang. Notice how close they stayed next to one another while they ate. They did that until the end. They were best buds!

It’s always sad to say goodbye to one of our finned pets. They each have their own personalities and will be remembered in photos. I have taken many of each group of fish we have owned. That way we can always remember them.

Thank you for stopping by to read this post. I hope you enjoyed seeing our fish and learning a little about them. Please come back again real soon. Thank you also for your kind support of me, my books and blog and for all the reviews you posted wherever my books are sold. Keep those reviews coming. We indie authors love them and so does Amazon. Reviews are the only way Amazon will recognize our books enough to promote them.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

My Favorite Way to Celebrate my Birthday! Not Counting Anymore!

I can’t believe that I am this old! Celebrating another birthday this year I will have my favorite meal – steamers, lobster and corn on the cob. I love seafood of any kind but this is my favorite combination. I’d rather eat this at home then go out to dinner.

Each day I wake up I feel fortunate that I am still here albeit with some daily aches and pains that nag but don’t kill me. I say ‘thank you, God, for another day on this earth.

I was thrilled to receive some roses from my thoughtful husband. What more could I ask for on my birthday – flowers and lobster?! Perfect! Life is good! Ha!

Red & Yellow Roses
Birthday roses from my husband

Lobster & clam bake – yummy! Can’t wait to dig in!!! I love to eat them but I can’t watch them cook or even put them into the pan. My husband does that for me. Thank goodness! I’m a wimp!

Lobsters

I hope everyone out there who shares my birthday today will have a special day filled with love and all good things. Happy birthday to you!! 🎶 🎼 🎵

On this day I will do all the things that I like to do – write, write, write and of course read too! I will also do some tap dancing and hula hooping to keep the blood flowing and ease the aches, pains and stiffness of my old joints. Most of all I will spend the day with my wonderful husband.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. Please come back again real soon. I hope you will have a lovely day today and every day. Stay safe and well. God Bless!

Thank you also for your kind support of me, my books and blog and for all the reviews you may have posted wherever my books are sold.
