Junebugs? What Are They? Bafflement from an Aussie Author
So it’s June, and for some bizarre reason, the word “junebugs” popped into my mind. I had no idea what they are, so I googled. I have to admit, I was expecting something cute. Perhaps with shiny rainbow wings. Maybe a firefly. I found a plain, boring beetle!
In some ways, the world was better before Google. There was more mystery. Now, curiosity is so swiftly and easily indulged. It makes research a heck of a lot easier for me as an author, but still … I’m old enough to remember using card catalogues in a library! Now, they were satisfying. You felt that knowledge was earned as you tracked it through a library.
Nevertheless, I wouldn’t go back to those days – not if it meant giving up my kindle and the instant gratification of ebooks!
Speaking of which…
Tina Glasneck has a new book out. Napoleonic France and a dragon! Ooh!
How far will she go to change history, and the man she loves?
In this third book of the Dragons series, time travel and fantasy weave together in a passionate romance.
Left at the altar, Mia DiMarco’s perfect world comes crashing down. She retreats to the only place she’s felt safe in this foreign land, the castle where she works, and a fervent wish launches her back in time to Napoleonic France.
Mia will have to face history in her present with a man she’s only ever read about, Lord Greyson Dumont– who can set her heart on fire and who she knows is destined to die.
She’ll do anything to change history, even if it means sacrificing her mortal heart to the powerful dragon.
Autumn in Australia
I was walking by the lake the other day on a beautiful still morning. Gorgeous, isn’t it?
A little white dog was sitting on a park bench with its owner by the lake, so happy to see people that it was wriggling all over. It had such a cheerful part-poodle face that I asked her owner if I could say hi. Poor little pup was a rescue. She was really happy to see me, but totally afraid of being petted. So I chatted with the owner just letting the dog know it was all okay and the situation unthreatening, then continued on. Poor pups. The mistreated ones remember.
Anyways, I don’t want to end the newsletter on a sad note!
Look what I found in the garden after rain. I don’t know if they’re the same species, but I’m going to believe they are.
