Friends of Authors Society

Who knows the best way to show your love for your favorite authors? (I’m one, right? Your favorite?) Besides the obvious of buying and reading my books, leaving a review on Amazon tickles their calculations and formulas and moves my books up in their ranks, which in turn means more peeps see my books, which means more peeps are likely to buy them.

There are other things you can do, as well. Suggest my books to your library or book club. Tell your friends, buy gift copies to give to your friends. Heck, tell ME how much you love ‘em!

 

Robin’s Readers Flock

I appreciate every one who has read or will read my books, and this group is for you!

“This group, as with my blog and (languishing and sadly neglected) website—and my writing—are all about community and family. It is a place to gather to chat and discuss my books, but also to become better acquainted and to encourage and pray for one another.”

If you’re interested, gimme a holla! I’d love to have you as part of my Flock!

 

Robin’s Nest, Stories by Design

I have been diligent this year to revive the blog. The second half of 2018—after publishing two novels and my knee surgery in June—depleted me, and I’ve had a hard time making a come-back. So the blog is looking pretty good, with all daily features restored…

 

FourSquare, the Series

… while the new series is gasping for air like a fish out of water. The characters—all of them, for all four books—are milling around in my head like circus performers before the big show! I’ve been working on details, at least, things I’ve learned through the process of writing seven novels. For instance, I have maps of the main town where the series takes place, the college campus where four of them met, the road to and layout of the retreat in the mountains. In an exercise that may or may not be ‘slightly’ excessive, I know all the key players and their birthdays and anniversaries—and all their family members… You know, in case Main Character’s best friend’s sister has a fight with her husband, or Other Main Character’s cousin celebrates a new job, or Other Main Character’s sister in law has a baby… ‘Cause you never know when that will show up in the story! Right?

 

FourSquare, the Covers

I have the covers for all four books laid out; it’s how I do this series cover thing. I’ve purchased the images of the models, and am working on the background images. And blurbs.

 

One for the Price of Two – The Blurb

* subject to change

Twin sisters Elizabeth and Meredith Elliott are so identical their own parents can’t even tell them apart. And the pranks abound. Their identities are so entwined, wrapped up in each other, it becomes near impossible even for them to tell where one ends and the other begins.

Even as their distinct personalities emerged, they mimicked one another, living parallel lives, mirroring each other.

It’s all fun and games till Bethy’s reticence holds her back from love. And Mere’s flamboyant personality nearly casts her in the midst of more trouble than she bargains for.

 

 Also in the works

Yes, I’ve got my next series in mind, The Steppe House. A literary tribute to Frank Lloyd Wright, the Steppe House is fashioned after Mr. Wright’s Falling Water House. Built into the side of a mountain, each of seven (I think) levels is home to a different family, each with their own story. It’s set in the 1940’s, a la Dame Agatha Christie, along the lines of Ten Little Indians (And Then There Were None,) and there is a character named Francis Llewellyn Wiggins; beyond that, I don’t know much about it at all.

 

AND

A Christmas novella, The Key on the Christmas Tree.

* not the final cover

I started this story a while back as part of a series, The Key, and have a short story, The Key in the Mailbox, included in an anthology by my friend, Mary Blowers, Blood Moon, that can be found on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Blood-Moon-Anthologies-Heart-2/dp/1511811897/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

 

All in the Family

I turned sixty this year. Six-oh. Six decades. As The Steve Miller Band says, “Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’…” That’s about how I feel. Time is slipping away and there’s so much I want to do. Guess that’s called a bucket list.

 

Not a bucket list item, but a pressing need is a car. Being on Disability, it’s not in the budget to make loan payments, so I have a GoFundMe Campaign set up. Please pop over and take a look, and help if you can.

A robin with clipped wings is a sad thing indeed.

The manifesto short version is,

“Stories for Christians to see or remember the ugly effects of the lies of the enemy, and for unbelievers to see the beauty of the Truth of the Word of God.”

And my author tag:

“the battle for identity, one story at a time.”

Robin’s Nest, Stories by Design

Executive decision—the blog is on summer break, aka R&R, through August. Perhaps some mini-reviews, and I already have the fellas lined up for Manly Man July Interview Blitz in August, so there’s that at least…

 

Seasons, the Series

IT’S DONE! COMPLETES! FINIS!!

All four books are released and out in the world!!

 

The southern town of Saisons lies at the crossroads between North and South, progressive and genteel antebellum life. Between East and West, between history and heritage, and new frontiers. Downton Abbey meets Gone With the Wind.

 

It’s 1912, in a world where slavery is dying and women’s rights are rising, and four young women who once shared a bond—and experienced a tragedy—question their own truths.

 

The Long Shadows of Summer

The Tilting Leaves of Autumn

The Silent Song of Winter

The Whispering Winds of Spring

 

 Seasons is ONE | GIANT | STORY, told by four main characters, each with their own contribution and perspective to the story. One set of characters, one fictional setting, one timeframe to research (1912 – 1913.) Get your copies today:

http://www.amazon.com/Robin-E.-Mason/e/B00MR5IQ9S
Or email me for your signed print copies! $20 each

 

New Writing Genre…

…CHILDREN’S STORIES!

Something I’ve noodled with for a while, and when neighbor kids started asking me for a story, well, I set my digital pen to the task. The Adventures of Charley the Horse is a mid-grade story.

 

 

Coming in 2019

FourSquare, the Series

Book 1, One for the Price of Two, in which twins Bethy and Mere are so identical their parents can’t even tell them apart. In a departure from the dark tone that creeps through my earlier stories, One for Two ventures into RomCom—quite the change-up for me!

 

The Steppe House

And in another effort I’ve not attempted, I will attempt to juggle two serieses. (is that a word?) The Steppe House. is a literary tribute to Frank Lloyd Wright. The house in the story—the Steppe House—is fashioned after Mr. Wright’s Falling Water House. Built into the side of a mountain, each of seven (I think) levels is home to a different family, each with their own story. It’s set in the 1940’s, a la Dame Agatha Christie, along the lines of Ten Little Indians (And Then There Were None,) and there is a character named Francis Llewellyn Wiggins; beyond that, I don’t know much about it at all. And in yet another new trick for this author, Agnes Renaldi, daughter of Mercedes Renaldi of The Long Shadows of Summer. In her forties and married now, to architect Alan Steppe, Aggie is a former opera star and childless.

 

BUT FIRST

A Christmas novella, The Key on the Christmas Tree.

* not the final cover

I started this story a while back as part of a series, The Key, and have a short story, The Key in the Mailbox, included in an anthology by my friend, Mary Blowers, Blood Moon, and can be found on Amazon.

All in the Family

HOLLA!! After 20+ years working restaurant business, my oldest son, Doug, has a new job in a new field! Hello nights and weekends OFF!!!

Son #2, Russell, is a biker. He has ridden in the Ride for a Cure for a couple of years, and will be riding again this summer. The link for anyone who would care to donate (or share) is:

My poor daughter, Maggie, has had a most horrific struggle with asthma complicated by allergies and, sadly, smoking; I have read / heard that is the single most difficult addiction to break! She’s had a few set-backs, but she is really making the effort to be smoke free!

 

The Knewbie Kneebie, Part 2

By the time you’re reading this, I’ll be recovering at home. One of my besties, K, will be staying with me for a few days and after she leaves I’ll have help coming in every day as well as home PT for the first few weeks.

Robin’s Nest, Stories by Design

Writing first, blog second. Is that rude? Perhaps, but the blog supports the writing and if there’s no writing, then the blog is, well, a solo act. And while I love blogging, and welcoming readers and other authors, writing is my first love. I have guest post topics for the rest of the year, if not actual guests… Interviews will reappear hopefully in June, possibly as early as May—and I do have the fellas lined up for Manly Man July Interview Blitz so there’s that at least…

 

Seasons, the Series

The southern town of Saisons lies at the crossroads between North and South, progressive and genteel antebellum life. Between East and West, between history and heritage, and new frontiers. Downton Abbey meets Gone With the Wind.

It’s 1912, in a world where slavery is dying and women’s rights are rising, and four young women who once shared a bond—and experienced a tragedy—question their own truths.

The Long Shadows of Summer…

Mercedes has always been an avid reader and devours each new Sherlock Holmes mystery as soon as she gets her hands on them. When one of her friends comes to her, Mercedes vows to keep Simone’s secrets and uncover the truth.

But as Mercedes plays detective to her friends’ questions, she discovers something far more shocking—she herself is not who she thought she was.

Scarlett was the shrinking violet in the group. Faithful to her friends, and hiding secrets of her own. When Mercedes steps in to rescue her, she unknowlingly plucks the thread that unravels Scarlett’s whole world.

But as Scarlett strives to hold fast to what is familiar the fabric of her life continues to come undone and secrets that are best kept hidden are exposed.

… The Silent Song of Winter…

Pearl had lived under the impossible taskmaster of perfection. Nothing she does or ever did pleased her mother. And nothing she ever did could disappoint her father.

Caught up in the mystery of her friend’s curious—and secretive—return, Pearl wrestles with her own decisions, and flees lest her own secrets are exposed.

… COMNG IN MAY—The Whispering Winds of Spring

Simone Bishop’s life was unraveling. All she had known and held dear was gone from her. At ten, all she wanted was to escape beneath the black waters of the Edisto River. She couldn’t know her whole life would be stolen from her.

When she returns to Saisons fifteen years later, she has no memory of ever having been there. Not even that it was her birthplace. Enlisting the help of her childhood friend, Mercedes, Simone encounters misty memories, and stirs up more mystery than she started with.

This summer, after Seasons wraps up and my surgery (see below), I plan to write a fun departure from deep dark secrets, One for the Price of Two. Twins Elizabeth and Meredith are so identical their parents can’t even tell them apart.

 

BUT FIRST

 

A Christmas novella, The Key on the Christmas Tree.

My poor daughter, Maggie, has had a most horrific struggle with asthma complicated by allergies and, sadly, smoking. After yet another trip to the ER, this time in an ambulance, she is making every effort to quit smoking. I have read / heard that is the single most difficult addiction to break!

 

 

 

The Knewbie Kneebie, Part 2

 

Scheduled for Tuesday 26 June! After the book launch and blog tours, after this amazing series is done and I am SO excited! Reviews may or may not happen later in the year as I plan to read whilst recovering, and work at a more leisurely pace (yeah right! bwahahahah) on the Christmas novella and the twin story before launching (see what I did there?) into the next series.

BLOGWORDS – 30 September 2017 – NEWSLETTER – a little birdie told me

3o September 2017

Edition V


 

Robin’s Nest, Stories by Design

 

 

 

The blog is semi-suspended, on hold, AKA sadly partially neglected. I’ve read a few posts lately about over commitment, one specifically addressing the blog VS writing deadlines. And since I’ve such a tall order with this series, the blog is the most immediate way I can scale back. Temporarily, though. After the final book releases (and my second knee surgery) the blog will be back up and running. And I don’t ever plan to slam myself with such a grueling (okay, maybe not actually grueling… ) schedule.

 

Newsletter Sign Up…

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, again, still… OY!! (see above, re grueling schedule) Among other things, the mail list tutorial is languishing. So for now, Little Birdie is a special edition blog post. Hopefully by next-next (‘cause I said that last time) edition (31 December) I’ll have that pesky little tutorial mastered, and sign up button properly displayed on the blog.
