Travelogue Video: Nova Scotia Adventure Part Two with J.Q. Rose

Travelogue Time
Hello and welcome to the Travelogue. I am thrilled to be your host for the second part of our Nova Scotia Adventure. Part One covered the south shore of Nova Scotia. In Part Two we continue driving through the Pudnico area to visit a turn-of-the-century Acadian Village, up into Prince Edward Island to see the *actual house with green gables made famous world-wide by Lucy Montgomery's series, Anne of Green Gables, and a drive along the PEI National Park shoreline. Gardener Ted and I are anxious to get  the tour started. Let's go!

Smartphone Era, Blueberry Muffin Recipe

Image from
Photo by adamr
Hope you had a wonderful, but warm, weekend! Mine was good except for the frustration learning how to use my new Smartphone. Yes, I finally gave in to joining the Smartphone era. We moved our pre-paid account from my simple little phone that showed how many minutes and the date I needed to renew the service to this monster. That info is no longer on the screen. I had to download an APP to have it available to me. Now the screen shows how many minutes I have, the texting, and data usage. Say what? The other phone took off minutes when I talked and texted.

I don't want to become one of those folks who pay more attention to their phone than to their friends who are sitting at the table eating dinner with me.

I don't want to fall over a street curb because I was texting instead of looking where I was going.

I don't want to become so addicted I can't go without looking at the screen twenty or more times in a few minutes.

But then again, I don't want to lose out on the perks that people find so wonderful with a Smartphone. I know authors who write their blogs/books while sitting in traffic on their cell phone.  Crossing my fingers that I can find some advantages to having one.

Do you have a Smartphone? What do you like about it? Don't like about it? Please tell me in a comment below.

Blueberry Muffin Recipe

It's blueberry pickin' time in Michigan. Oh so good blueberries on bushes taller than Gardener Ted. No he doesn't grow them, but there are a LOT of blueberry fields near us. Picking blueberries is such a peaceful, pleasant venture. I'm afraid my DH and grandkids come home with just as many berries in their tummies as in the buckets!

My daughter called and wanted my friend Carol's recipe for Blueberry Muffins, so I thought you may be looking for one too. Carol's recipe is below. Enjoy!

Blueberry Muffins
1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. blueberries
1 c. sour cream

Mix together. Put in baking cups.
Bale 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Please let me know if you try these and how you like them. I'm always looking for blueberry recipes. Do you have one?

Travelogue Time
Hello and welcome to the Travelogue. I am thrilled to take my turn this week on the Travelogue. You're invited to join my husband, Gardener Ted, and me on our tour of Nova Scotia, Canada. Because we stayed only one night in an area, we drove 1700 miles (not counting the ferry boat ride back from Prince Edward Island to Nova Scotia), You can bet I have a LOT of photos, so today I present Part One of the trip. 

We truly enjoyed the people and places in Nova Scotia, Canada. Now that we've had an overview, we might make another visit in the future to the spots we want to explore more thoroughly. 

Enjoy the video!

The Writing Process: First Drafts, Revisions, Synopsis Creation

Summertime glads
54,911. That's the number of words in my latest mystery manuscript, according to MS Word. And may I also add, the manuscript is finished? Woot woot...What a wonderful feeling, for the moment.

I sent the story out to two trusted beta readers, so I know there will be changes to be made when they return their comments.

First Drafts
The first draft is only the beginning.
First Draft
Sometimes the final scene isn't even in my first draft. Things change during the writing. Those characters seem to have minds of their own, so how I planned the novel to end is not always the way it ends!

I've learned not to share the first draft scenes with my critique group as I'm writing the story because these ladies are so brilliant when brainstorming. They give me too many great ideas and I cannot implement them all when I want to, so I get frustrated. Then I get confused and lose my way in the story. It's better to just scratch it out, straight through to the end before sharing. Don't stop to re-write it. Perhaps you have the same problem as author Laini Taylor. 

The one thing I have learned about writing a novel is--it is never done. After the first draft, I set the story aside for a week or more. (I began my manuscript for this story in June 2012 and didn't even look at it again until 2015!) With this novel I have four manuscripts, each one progressively edited not only for line edits, but for fleshing out the story and filling in the holes.

Just as arranging flowers, a floral designer has to fill the vase with the blossoms, perhaps add a little babies breath, step back, add some purple statice. Her eye has to decide if the floral arrangement is complete. A writer too needs to step back and decide when the story is complete. Knowing that important step takes practice, just like it takes practice to develop the eye for floral design.

Ask for Help
After tackling three mysteries, short stories, and non-fiction books, I have learned to ask for help with the writing. It takes a village for a writer to actually get the story idea to a published book. 

My "baby" has been sent out to fresh eyes for feedback. Don't you feel like your manuscript is your baby and you want to hold on to it and protect it from any harm? Don't be afraid to share what you have written. The insights you gain from getting feedback is worth having a queasy stomach before you send it off online or share it in your critique group. In fact, reading your story could make someone's day.

The Dreaded Synopsis Creation 

I won't touch the manuscript for another week. So now what do I do? I face the most daunting task for a writer, creating a synopsis to send to publishers. How do you condense 55000 words into a two page synopsis? (Be sure to check guidelines for the publisher you have in mind to submit your work. Some like shorter, some prefer longer synopses.)

If you need some advice on writing a synopsis, (and don't we all?) Joanne Broadwell shared her Perfecting the Pitch Synopsis Toolkit on the J.Q. Rose blog on the J.Q. Rose blog. Please click on over to read her tips on creating one for your book.

I'd better get to writing that synopsis. I'm so excited to share this book, Deadly Undertaking, three years in the making. The synopsis will introduce you to the characters (Lauren is the protagonist), setting (a small town and her family's funeral home), and situations (she's dealing with her mother's illness, a murder in the funeral home, a nosy shadow man, and falling in love.)

Travelogue: Europe by Rail--through the Mountains in Bavaria to the Casino at Monte Carlo, Free eBook

Welcome to the Summer Travelogue series! Award-winning British  author Helena Fairfax gets us back on track for a great  trip through Europe by Rail.( I believe in the USA we would say a train trip!)

Thank you, Helena, for sharing your adventure with us!

Europe by Rail: through the Mountains in Bavaria to the Casino at Monte Carlo 
by Helena Fairfax

Map of Europe from Deluxe Travel site
Not Helena's actual trip

Eight years ago (and I can’t believe it’s that long!) my husband and I took a rail trip through Europe.
The whole of Europe - so much to see and do! But we only had just over two weeks, so our trip involved careful planning and ruthlessly abandoning thousands of cultural highlights.
So, on a very, very rainy day in the north of England, I left work for an exciting adventure. We flew to Stuttgart and from there took a train all the way to the heart of the Bavarian Alps. Many, many years ago I spent one summer working in a hotel here, and I still have dear friends from that time. We were all going to return to our hotel – only this time not to wash dishes or serve foaming pints of beer, but as paying guests.
Here’s the view from our window. As you can imagine, as young people working in this hotel we missed the clubs and pubs to be found at home. The cows were a poor substitute for night life. But it was wonderful to return and rediscover just how fabulous the Bavarian mountains are:
The Bavarian Alps
We had a fabulous two days recalling old times and drinking Weissbier, and then we said goodbye to my friends and carried on further south, on a train journey through the even more magnificent mountains of Switzerland towards Italy. Look at this for a view from our train window!
View from the Bernina Express
After the Swiss Alps, we came down into the flat lands to the border with northern Italy, and the shores of Lake Lugano. Unlike northern England, the weather was now HOT.

And then we headed over the border and further south into Italy, to the fabulous renaissance city of Florence. If you’ve read my novel The Antique Love  you might recognise this view of the river Arno, which I used at the end of the novel. (The ending of The Antique Love was voted “Most Romantic Love Scene Ever” by readers of Love, Romances and More. With inspiration like this, it wasn’t hard to write a romantic ending!)
Sunset over the Arno
And then we headed back up north, stopping off at the city of Genoa – a jumble of red houses and steep slopes by the Mediterranean – to take the train over the border and on to the French city of Nice. 
    Whilst staying in Nice, we took the opportunity to visit the tiny little principality of Monaco, once ruled over by Prince Rainier and his wife, Princess Grace (formerly Grace Kelly), and now ruled over by Albert II.

Helena, you certainly packed a lot of splendid places to visit into a short time. Thanks for sharing this amazing trip with us. Now tell us about your new book to be released August 2.

My latest release, Palace of Deception, is a romantic suspense novella. The setting is a fictional principality in southern Europe – a country a little like Monaco (although of course the characters aren’t based on country’s real Royal family!) The heroine travels to the principality of Montverrier by rail.
Here is the blurb to Palace of Deception:
A sinister housekeeper, a silent bodyguard, and a missing princess - mystery and intrigue in a gripping romantic suspense.

Lizzie Smith is contacted by her old drama teacher over the summer and offered the acting job of her life. Princess Charlotte of Montverrier has disappeared on the eve of her Investiture…and Lizzie must take her place.

But in the run up to the ceremony, all is not what it seems in the Palace of Montverrier. Why does the housekeeper insist Lizzie keep to her suite of rooms? What danger lies outside the palace walls? As Lizzie learns her role, her only confidant is Léon, her quiet bodyguard…but what secrets is he keeping from her?

Mystery and suspense against the backdrop of a beautiful Mediterranean city.

Palace of Deception is available on pre-order from 
Amazon US
Amazon UK  
and international Amazon stores.

Thanks for inviting me to your blog, JQ. I’ve loved reading through all your own travelogue posts, and those of your guests. Here’s to many more happy times travelling!

Writing Tip: Using the Kindle for Editing, This Week, Travelogue

One of the gorgeous roses in the Halifax Public Garden
Hello from Michigan!

Summer is half over and I still have not finished my WIP for my Beta readers. I swore I would have the manuscript (ms) done for my funeral home mystery by the end of April, then the end of May, then the end of June...mmmm....My mother always told me not to swear. At this point in time, I only have seven chapters to go. I plan to get it finished up this week, even if I have to stay up all night, every night!

WRITING TIP--Using the Kindle for Editing
Before allowing Beta reader eyes on the story, I use the Kindle reader as my final tool. I email my MS Word doc to my Kindle address. The address is found on your amazon account information. Then I can read the ms on my Kindle similar to an eBook, but the formatting is not perfect. It's a different way of looking at the words and pages making it helpful to find errors.

Reading the manuscript on the  KIndle
and yes, I do have this old Kindle too.
When I see wording or punctuation I want to change in my ms, I highlight it and make a note. After reading through it, I then pull up my ms and make changes on the ms. The errors are easy to find on the Kindle page because they are highlighted. Sometimes I have a hard time locating the line or paragraph in my Word doc though. I don't know if a program like Scrivener would make it easier for me.

I was amazed at how many punctuation errors I made. No period, too many periods, commas I needed to add or delete, and punctuation marks where they shouldn't be and where they should be.
I also noted awkward or long sentences, sentences that sounded like a second grader wrote them, and formatting issues such as indenting a new paragraph.

The text-to-speech program on the Kindle is helpful too. Listening to the story catches many oddly written conversations or sentences. Yes, the Kindle voice is rather monotone and boring, so I can't listen for long stretches at a time.

Have you ever tried using the Kindle for editing? Please share some of your most helpful ways of editing your stories.

If you would like tips on editing, the writing process, publishing and marketing, check out the eBook, Romance and Mystery Authors on Writing. Fifteen romance and mystery authors share writing tips they have gleaned from their experiences as “on-the-job” writers. The tips are organized into the main topics of writing, publishing, and marketing. The novelists also reveal the “light bulb moments” in their writing journey, questions they are asked most often, and the best advice on writing they have received. By offering their expertise, the authors hope to smooth the sometimes rocky road for new writers toward a rewarding career in writing. All proceeds from the sales of the eBook will go to local public libraries. Find the eBook on amazon.

Thursday, July 17-Please join romance author Helena Fairfax on the Travelogue series. This week we are traveling Europe by rail as our British tour guide introduces us to  Europe by Rail: through the Mountains in Bavaria to the Casino at Monte Carlo.

Travelogue: Green Gables, Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, Canada: Step Back in Time

Join the Travelogue every Thursday this Summer on the J.Q. Rose blog.
In this contemporary world of digital books and developing genres, L.M. Montgomery's books published beginning in 1908 are still popular today. Readers fell in love with Anne of Green Gables, a feisty, red-headed orphan who persuaded an elderly farmer and his sister to take her in even though they had wanted a boy to help work the farm. Her adventures are chronicled in a series of eight books which take place on Prince Edward Island (PEI), Canada.
Green Gables, Prince Edward Island, Canada

We visited Green Gables as one of our stops in PEI on our trip last month. Join me as we step through the portal back to the late 1800's at this charming farmstead rich in history and beauty.

This house actually existed during Lucy Montgomery's time. She could see it from her home she shared with her grandparents in Cavendish, PEI, and roamed the countryside around it. The house is furnished as she wrote about it in the books, much richer than the real occupants would have lived.

So here we go. Grab your bonnets and I'll show you around.

The path from the Green Gables Heritage Place Visitors Center leads you to this enormous barn. Inside are tools and machinery from the 19th century. This would be a fun and educational field trip for kids to learn about farming when there were no air-conditioned tractors or multitasking combines.

The green gables certainly signal you have arrived.

The furnishings were rich and lovely. Amazing wallpapers and carpeting in every room.

The kitchen was stocked with beautiful dishes and no modern conveniences. 

Where's the microwave, the running water, the refrigerator?Life would be hard in the 19th century. We complain, but this step back in time made me appreciate our modern way of life.
This is the entrance to the Haunted Woods.

The scenery in the area is breathtaking. No wonder Lucy Montgomery always referred to it as "home" even after she moved away to Ontario. Her final resting place is the Cavendish Cemetery.
# # # #
Have you read Anne of Green Gables? I started reading it before we left on our trip and throughout the visit (when I could keep my eyes open long enough to read.) The story is sweetly told. Now considered a children's book, Anne is a great gal to help the reader, young or old, to escape this modern world for awhile.

If you're interested in getting the Anne of Green Gables series , I downloaded this eBook and I'm happy with the formatting. All but two of the series are in the book, plus many other books by L.M. Montgomery, and also the classics, Pride and Prejudice and Call of the Wild.

Nova Scotia Travel, How to Get into the Mindset for Writing

Hello and welcome to the J.Q. Rose blog!

Along the Cabot Trail in the Cape Breton area of Nova Scotia
I hope you had a wonderful Canada Day or Fourth of July holiday. In my case, I was in Canada for Canada Day and home in time for the Fourth! We spent twelve jam-packed days in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada. We met friendly folks, tried the local food, and saw spectacular scenery. Yes, I'll share some of the photos and stories on the Travelogue in the near future. 

Lunenberg, NS, Canada
After a vacation from the everyday routine, it takes a bit to get back into the writing process. But the break was so helpful for my writing. I was inspired by our trip and filled with new energy for writing, especially wrapping up my WIP. This week I am making a conscious decision to write, setting my mind into getting into the groove. How do I do that? Here are a few ideas you may want to try to help you focus on your writing mindset.

How to Get into the Mindset for Writing by J. Q. Rose

Mindset is an attitude about what you are going to do. It's not just for writing. You need to have a mindset to lose weight, stop smoking, cleaning the house, going on vacation, etc. The mindset determines how you approach your plan.

  • Be positive about your writing. Don't second-guess about your work. Just sit down and write it. Nobody else is going to see it but you. You don't need to please anyone. Writing is like learning to ride a bike.The more you ride the better you get. The more you write, the better writer you will be.

  • Believe that you do have a story to tell and one that will entertain and/or inform others. Think how much you can enrich lives with your writing. 

  • Remove distractions. You know what I'm getting at here, don't you? No cell phone, no Internet, no throwing in another load of laundry. 

  • Take time to breathe. Calm your mind and focus on your story or article. Don't even start a sentence until you can concentrate only at the task at hand.

  • Schedule a time during the day to write. Just like keeping your doctor or dentist appointment, make a time for writing. I decided to write fiction after lunch every day and soon it became a habit. I felt cheated if I didn't get to sit down and write at that time. I don't set my mind to a fixed word count or certain amount of time for writing. I don't want to quit when I'm on a roll or feel I HAVE to fill up the time slot. 

  • Say with pride and certainty, "I am a writer.
# # # #
How about you? How do you set your mind to write?

Celebrate the Fourth of July, Travelogue: 2014 Rose Bowl Parade

Happy Independence Day-Fourth of July! 

Today I am re-blogging a popular post on the J.Q. Rose blog, The Rose Parade Travelogue was originally published in January 2014. 

What is more American than apple pie? The traditional New Year's Day Rose Bowl Parade  in Pasadena, California. In 2014 the parade celebrated is 125th year. Sit back and enjoy the parade!!

Dreams Come True was the theme of the 2014 Rose Parade. That theme certainly fit our situation because it was our dream to actually attend the parade one day. Finally, in June, my hubby announced he was ordering the airline tickets to Pasadena, California, and to the Rose Parade! This trip was even better than we had ever imagined. The people, places, and even the weather, was delightful. I only wish I could share all 1000 pictures with you, but, um, no, I won't. Only 900?? LOL!

The Rose Parade celebrated 125 years in 2014. This unique parade did not begin as the elaborate high tech- jaw-dropping extravaganza we now know. Instead this new year tradition began in 1890 by Pasadena's Valley Hunt Club. According to the Rose Parade Guide, "the members wanted to promote the "Mediterranean of the West" so they invited their former East Coast neighbors to watch games such as chariot races, foot races, polo, and tug-of-war under the California sun.

"The abundance of flowers, even in the midst of winter, prompted the club to add another showcase for Pasadena's charm: a parade to precede the competition, where entrants would decorate their carriages with hundreds of blooms".

The tradition of floral be-decked entries into the Tournament of Roses Parade continues, but now on a much larger scale. Flowers and natural materials from all over the world cover every inch of the floats. No paint allowed. Only nature's true colors add the excitement and texture to the elaborate designs.

We visited the float building areas and watched the organized chaos of this huge operation mostly done by volunteers. The tedious process of gluing on each petal or seed, yes tiny seeds, boggled my mind. 

Teen volunteers gluing on flower petals to the opening Rose Parade float. All generations work together to decorate the floats. Kids through senior citizens offer their skills.

These folks are tearing up straw flowers.

The volunteer brushes on glue, then sprinkles the petals in the box all over the gluey section.
Three locations offered views of the decorators in action. I was worried the floats would not be ready by step-off time at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, January 1. When we visited the sites on Monday morning, a lot of the seeds and grasses were glued on, but the delicate flowers had to wait till the last minute to be fresh for the parade judges. So, the volunteers work all day and all night. Such dedication. By the way, the floats were all done in time!

Okay, get ready. The parade is about to begin!

The United States Air Force Thunderbirds zoomed down the parade route thrilling parade viewers.

Opening banner to kick off the parade. This is the float the teens were working on in the picture above. Finished it too!!
A salute to a famous dreamer, Henry Ford. Behind is a rendition of the Spirit of St. Louis honoring dreamer Charles Lindbergh. 

City of Glendale Let's Be Neighbors. The float is based on a real bear who kept coming down into Glendale and raiding the trash cans.

The marauding bear earned the name of Meatball because he always ate the meatballs.
He wouldn't stay in the mountains, so they had to move him to a preserve. 

I wonder if they serve him meatballs there.

So Close, Yet Safari Away

TheK9s4Cops dedicated its float to the heroic K9 law enforcement units across America and to those who serve and protect our communities. This non-profit organization donates highly trained dogs to agencies who otherwise could not afford them.

A salute to the WWII Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) 
For more information go to the Girls Succeed blog 

These cute kitties are riding the RFD-TV float, You Make My Dreams Come True. Can you find the calico on the float below?

RFD-TV float

Gorgeous, elegant float. Of course, it's Beverly Hills. 

Sea World Park's Sea of Surprises

Adorable candy train

These 3 aliens surprised parade viewers by driving out of the space ship and traveling along the parade route. This was a first in parade history!

Wonderful Indonesia--This float got my vote for the most dazzling and exotic float.

Photos never can give the viewer the complete picture of this amazing design.

Monster truck--Had to take a lot of pictures of this monster truck for the grandkids! Made me giggle.

Trader Joes, a grocery store in CA, Relish Your Dreams. It's relish dish with cheeses and olives, etc.
A pickle followed along behind it. So clever.

Butterflies fluttered among the colorful flowers.

The dogs have stolen the dog catcher's truck in this animated float. One of the most humorous floats

Yep, he's running after them. What do you think? Can he catch them??

Have no doubt. Your dreams can come true too.
