Welcome to my official blog on WordPress! For those of you who’ve joined me from MySpace or read my newsletter Musings where I’ve shared my thoughts for years, thanks for following me here so we can continue our chats. If you’re joining me for the first time, I hope you enjoy your visit.

Please visit regularly as I share bits and pieces about reading, writing, and anything else that strikes my fancy. In other words, I don’t intend to bore you with the litany of “me”. I’m interested in a number of things and would like to share those interests. I want to get to know you, too.

I will post at least three times a week.

• Monday Musings – Let’s talk reading and writing! In addition to my thoughts and musings, I’ll occasionally host guest authors and professionals with their own insights into the book industry.

• Wacky Wednesdays – Articles, fun trivia, photos, whatever catches my eye. It’s a big world out there and I love to share my interests with my readers.

• Friday Fixin’s – Looking for something new to make for your family? Want to cook from scratch and save money? Each week, I’ll share a new recipe from my extensive personal cookbooks with you. A little help in the kitchen gives us all time to read more of the books we love!

If you have a recipe you’re willing to share, give me a shout at kldocter@yahoo.com. Feel free to send articles of interest, too. No guarantees I’ll post all of them but I’m interested in hearing from you, my readers, and will post what I can.

Looking forward to chatting with you. Have a great day!

  3. Karen,
    Congratulations on launching your blog. I haven’t taken the plunge yet. I’m still caught up in getting my books uploaded to Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, which has been a gigantic learning curve for me.
    Best regards, Meb

  4. Hi, Pamela! Thanks for checking out my new blog. I used to blog on MySpace eons ago but it became problematic and I stopped. Going to feel good to climb back in the saddle again. 🙂 The tagline captures my writing style, so glad you like it. I’m doing the three regular blog features for now but I’ll add the occasional extra blog when the spirit moves me. I like variety! Thanks for your warm welcome!


  5. Thanks, Meb! Congratulations on getting your books uploaded. I have yet to tackle that monster. :)) Should finish Killing Secrets by end of the year so I’m looking at January to delve into that aspect of publishing. You’ll be an old pro by then, I bet! I may have to probe your brain for tips! Wishing you HAPPY SALES!! I hope you’ll keep in touch and let us all know how your writing career is going.


  6. Karen, welcome to the world of blogging. I’ll definitely look forward to checking your site out frequently. Enjolyed a glimpse into your everyday life! You’re a warm, smart, funny gal, and we are so glad, again, that you came to our Retreat & spoke!

  7. Waving wildly, Ellen! Thanks. I thoroughly enjoyed spending the weekend with all of you gals in Tennessee. Came home with aching ribs from laughing so much. You all are so much fun. I’ll come back any time. Can’t wait to chat with you more often now that my blog is up and running.

    Have a lovely day!
