Katrina, it's the weekend here in Wales, UK as well. Funnily enough, I'm reading an arc too 'Notorious' by Nicola Cornick. Have a great weekend everyone!

Here's a second question. Since Twenty-Five Years Ago Today is about a newspaper in a state of transition (a small independent paper that's becoming more corporate run), how do you get your news? Do you subscribe to a daily newspaper? Do you read local weekly papers? Read newspapers on the Internet? Or do you prefer to watch the news on TV?

Post your response, and you'll be automatically entered to win one of 3 Smashwords downloads of my other book, Sink or Swim. (You'll get an entry for every comment or question you leave during my chat.)

That's a good point, CarolAnn. As a former reporter, I can attest that you have to read what's in the newspaper with a critical eye. Sometimes reporters make mistakes that editors don't catch, and unfortunately sometimes editors slant the story to have the big page one headline - ie. they'll interview 7 people outside a convenience store and then do a big front page story on how the majority of a town feels a certain way on an issue! Almost every time I've been interviewed in a newspaper for my books, they've gotten something wrong. TV tends to sensationalize so viewers have to be careful about buying into hype, but if you're just looking for the latest news, TV pieces are short so they have less time to get it wrong.

I prefer to watch the news on TV (BBC News) because I tend not to trust what's written in the newspapers unless I'm reading a reputable paper such as The Times or Guardian.

Oh coupons, I love coupons, Tracey! Luckily my mom gives them all to me! That is a definite benefit of a print edition. And I love the Thanksgiving edition, with all the ads. That's a must-buy. (though usually someone else will bring it over.) You can read the Thanksgiving ads online now, but I just don't like doing that - it's much easier to flip through printed ads.

I'm back again and thought I'd give a little of my background. I started my writing career as an obit writer and editorial assistant for a small daily newspaper, and later became a reporter. This inspired Twenty-Five Years Ago Today, which is set at a newspaper.

My college major, however, was exercise science. I discovered after graduating that working in this field wasn't for me, but all's well that ends well! I worked briefly in a health club during college, and worked my health and fitness interest into Sink or Swim, which is about Cassidy Novak, a personal trainer who works at a health club (when she's not appearing on reality shows or getting stalked!)

You sound good at math, Tracey - my weakness! I'll select the winners tonight after about 9:30 p.m. EST, when the family is settled down for the night! If anyone else wants to enter by commenting on one of my chat threads, there is a little more time.

I worked as an accountant for awhile (yeah, that was my majore) but now I work in the IT field. I'd rather stay at home and read, though!

I got out of the field but it did lead into what I'm doing now so it's good.

I usually like a mixture, usually either paranormal or historical but I noticed I am enjoying more of urban fantasy as well but like Tracey it depends on my mood.

I thought I'd share a little more about my current ebook, With Proud Humility so here's the blurb, I'll post an excerpt in a comment. Remember two commenters will get a chance to win this one.

Blurb:
Marie's mother died protecting something, but what? Determined to find answers, Marie is prepared to go to any length to locate her mother's legacy, even to pursue the man responsible for her death - Black Vane. No price is too dear to Marie, who gambles everything on a marriage of convenience to a ship's captain she knows she can't trust, but who may be one ally she needs.

This is a historic story of romance and adventure, set on the Caribbean seas of the early 1800's, a tale of betrayal and sacrifice in pursuit of an unknown goal.

Hi Ebony, and thanks everyone for the nice comments. I find picking a good excerpt the toughest part. I always want to just copy and paste in the whole book.

Great excerpt, indeed. Thanks for sharing.
