Hotel Pastis

I have loved everyone of Peter Mayle’s works that I have read, so it was a bit of a nail-biter when it seemed this might be a depressing story. That characters weren’t getting along, deadlines weren’t being met, lives were teetering on this edge, and that. Then something amazing happened; the protagonist did what they wanted to, not what they thought they should.

It is true I normally read about murder or beyond the grave, but once in a while a glass-of-wine book is needed. This one should be at the top of the pile.

As I said on Good read:

Better than a vacation! You can smell the fabulous foods, hear the click, click, click of that woman’s heels on the marble floor, feel the tension of those thieves.. whoa, I’m getting carried away – giving it away. It’s enough to say: Peter Mayle never disappoints.

I love the characters, and wish I could be one of them.

NaNoWriMo 2020

Hello again NaNoWriMoers ~

This year I thought I would add a list of some of the music that gives me mental images of what I’m writing, with links so you can join in the fun, if you like. These are YouTube suggestions, and many have their own directions. For me, the common thread is the unseen ‘other(s)’. I can see things in my head fairly clearly, but I don’t always stay on task, so other artists visuals of spirits, memories, or wraiths, are my muses. Thanks, guys! When you’re ready to back to NaNoWriMo.org just tap this link.

2020 has had so many scary things happening, if one wrote about it (and we had not lived through it), readers would not believe it was true. That’s what is so great about fiction; you can make it seem bizarre while you are really telling others the story of your life… without divulging and thing personal because it’s FICTION! So don’t be surprised that some of these tracks are somber, melancholiac, or dark. However, there are bright spots, too, just remember, these are coming from YouTube so there are the occasional ads. This first batch are rather electronic:

Then there’a the basic tunes with vocals:

I’ll have more for you later, but I gotta get back to writing… thanks for stopping by.

About Niki

Niki Chanel is a character created by Alexandra Kent, author of Supernatural Suspense.

This website is written in Alex’s point of view; her view of an insecure “Creative”, driven to write, draw, compute, sculpt, paint – anything to break out of her personal prison of shyness.

In the first book of the Niki Chanel series, two teenage girls, Alexandra and Monique meet and become the best of friends. Together they create a stage character named Niki Chanel. They quickly find that either of them can use the Niki persona to collect information, gain entrance to high levels of society, and that fame is not always fleeting. They also realize Niki is in danger.

This notebook website is written in Alex’s point of view; she says it keeps her sane.

 

Author bio ~

Alexandra grew up in Europe living in a three hundred year old farmhouse, complete with a ghost. Is it any wonder that her characters get involved with altered states of reality, be it through a deck of Tarot cards or a glass of wine? She folds her own weird experiences into tales filled with neurotic neighbours, frustrated friends, eccentric relatives and little known history.
