The Lavender in Bloom with Honeybees and a Comment About Short Stories

Picture of lavender growing in New Mexico in gardenIt feels great to have the media files on this website working. The lavender is in full bloom here in New Mexico, so here’s a picture of lavender in the back yard.

Close up picture of lavender blossoms and a honeybeeThere are honeybees all over the lavender right now, so I took an up close photo of a honeybee. This second picture has the honeybee hidden in the photo.

In other news, it turns out the short stories Parallels and A Maze of Cubicles will be reissued in 2nd edition e-books under the Lynn Kilmore name, but all the other short stories and novelettes will not.  They will be taken off sale instead. However, the short story collection Tales from the Threshold will be made available as a Lynn Kilmore 2nd edition, and will have every short story and novelette published so far.

But if there’s a particular short story you want to buy on its own, you’ll need to do it before Fall 2014 (except for Parallels and A Maze of Cubicles). Writer’s Flight has already been taken off sale, but it’s still available to read in the Parallels short story e-book and in Tales from the Threshold.

I hope you all have a peaceful week.

Cheers, Lynn

Two Weeks in Pictures

Picture of ripe Bing Cherries in treeWell, the pictures are back up and working on the website. Hurray! So for this blog post, I’m going to attach pictures from the last two weeks. This first picture is of ripe Bing cherries, up close. The robins have had a grand old time eating them.

I also took another picture up close of a single rose. Picture of a rose up close The hot desert air has now dried it out, but two weeks ago it was still fresh and fragrant.

And then for this week I took a picture of four roses that are blooming in the shelter of the rose bush. Right now the sun and heat are intense, so it is only in the shade that the roses are still blooming.

Picture of four roses by Lynn KilmoreIt’s great to have the website images working again, and I want to thank the support staff at WordPress for helping us fix things.

I hope you all have a great week.

Blog For This Week Delayed

Hello,

Just a quick note that the blog post for this week will be delayed. The web people are getting ready behind the scenes to do the fix for the broken picture links on this website, and I need to hold off on posting until after the attempt is made.

Until later this week, Lynn

Broken Pictures on My Blog and the Goodreads Giveaway Ends

Well, Murphy’s Law is in full effect here right now. The Goodreads Giveaway ends tomorrow, and we’ve been frantically trying to get the hiccups in the transition from lmmay.com to lynnkilmore.com sorted out before then, but this latest bug just hit thirty minutes ago

Most of the links to pictures on this website are now currently broken. Sorry about that.

I uploaded the pictures of the Bing cherries to get ready to post about them to the blog tonight … and accidentally triggered a bug that broke the links to almost every other picture on this website. We think we know what happened–and it’s something that would’ve broken as soon as I uploaded any sort of media after the transition. It may take a bit to fix, but we’ll get there. In the meantime, please pardon the blank spots where the covers and photos should be.

Sooner or later the pictures and the book covers on this website will work again … and in the meantime I can look at the website and see what it would look as mostly text (and laugh).

I’ve got my fingers crossed that the bugs are shaken out of this website by next week. I’ll do a blog post with pictures once they’ve got things fixed.

Cheers, Lynn

Rajah Poses for the Camera (Part Two) and a Goodreads Giveaway

Picture of Rajah with slightly glowing eyesThe internet, of course, was created so that cat videos and pictures could be easily shared (huge grin–I’m kidding). I realized it’d been several weeks since I last posted a picture of Rajah, so here’s one of him with a slight “glow” to his eyes.

He is doing well despite being almost 13 years of age. He had to have dental surgery last week, but is recovering well and has a great time getting in front of my computer screens every chance he can.

As I’ve already blogged about, my pen name is changing this year from L. M. May to Lynn Kilmore. There’s a Goodreads Giveaway for a signed copy of Soul Cages that will end right about midnight on June 9th. This will be the last time that a print copy of the 1st edition is offered in a giveaway under that old pen name of L. M. May.

A second edition of the novel is going to be coming out in August 2014 with the new pen name on it.

Have a great week.

Cheers, Lynn
