Matowak Woman Who Cries Tour

A murder enveloped in pain and mystery...

When Canada's retired Minister of National Defense, Leland Warner, is
murdered in his home, the case is handed to Corporal Danny Killian, an aboriginal man tortured by his wife's unsolved murder.
The suspect, 60-year-old Sally Warner, still grieves for the loss of her two sons, dead in a suicide/murder eighteen months earlier. Confused and damaged, she sees in Corporal Killian a friend sympathetic to her grief and suffering and wants more than anything to trust him.
Danny finds himself with a difficult choice—indict his prime suspect, the dead minister's horribly abused wife or find a way to protect her and risk demotion. Or worse, transfer away from the scene of his wife’s murder and the guilt that haunts him...

Mâtowak Woman Who Cries is available in eBook at the following sites:

The print copy is available at: 


When Joylene's father died in 1983, she wrote her first full–length manuscript to channel her grief. The seven-year process left her hooked and she began Dead Witness within a few weeks of finishing Always Father's Child. Today Joylene is the author of three suspense novels: Dead Witness, Broken But Not Dead, and the steam-punk collaboration Break Time. While she'll admit being published didn't fix all the wrongs in her life, she wishes her parents had lived to see her success. Dead Witness was a finalist in the 2012 Global eBook Awards. Broken But Not Dead won the 2012 IPPY Silver Medal, and its sequel Mâtowak Woman Who Cries is due for release November 1, 2016.

Joylene lives with her husband and their two cats Marbles and Shasta on beautiful Cluculz Lake in central British Columbia. They spend their winters in Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico.

If I Were A Mobster



Blake Herro is a cop in the Cleveland Police Force. Ever since he was a child he wanted to do right by the city he loved by cleaning up the streets and protecting its citizens. Red, a notorious mobster, has other plans.

Every minute he’s with these mobsters he’s in danger. Around every corner lies the threat of coming face to face with a gun. Will he make it out of the Mob alive or will he be their next victim?

IWSG Wednesday

The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Members post about their  doubts and fears, discuss struggles and triumphs, and offer words of encouragement to others who are struggling. 
Since I wrote on a different topic last month, I'm going to post on September's question: How do you find the time to write in your busy day?
The answer for me is really quite simple. I have no life. 
Actually, that's an exaggeration, it should be I had no life. Grin. Since I've retired though, time to write isn't such an issue. 
After the kids had left the nest, and before I'd retired, I went to work, came home and wrote. On weekends, I got up and spent most of the day and evening writing, and hoped for the sake of the house, no one dropped by unannounced:)  
I can remember writing in the parenting days. Like most working moms, I wrote at every opportunity--when  I wasn't working, there weren't student activities and or family outings. I wrote on my lunch hour, waiting in the car for a child, waiting at the doctor's office, etc.  
Being a working-parent-writer is not for wimps. So to the parents who work and write full time kudos.  My hat is off to you.

Legend has it that…..

Amber contained the soul of tigers.
Bloodstones were oracles and gave off sounds of guidance.
Carnelian was used to guard the dead on their journey to their next life.
Cat’s-eye made the wearer invisible.
Making chalices from chalcedony prevented poisoning.
Chiastolite warded off the Evil Eye.
Diamonds sprang from thunderbolts.
Diamonds fell from the sky after a fight between dragons.

Magnificent Seven.

Yes they were.

We hooked up with a bud and went to Davidson to a little theater that has tables and comfortable chairs, and you can order pizza and sandwiches from the concession stand.  
Magnificent Seven was a well done, diverse background, hold-your-interest movie. Though, a tad bit violent for my taste.
*Spoiler alert. Eating a raw deer liver (At least that's what the HH thought it was. I was too busy hiding my eyes)is not something a vegetarian needs to be seeing:) But once I recovered from that, I sank into the plot. It was fun watching the 'old western style' trick riding and fancy six gun shooting.  The whole cast did a great job. Overall, I enjoyed it.

That was our Friday night. How did you spend yours?
