Book description:

Music is Larry Nunn's forte.
He writes of groups that stand out in the fray.
Owl's Nest locals like Doveshadow and
5CC both consummate bands.
And Larry's story, all his own
Of Manta will chill you to the bone.

THE SHUDDERS - BY TERRI DELCAMPO



Terri DelCampo wrote The Shudders three years ago. It's time for me to give it the love it deserves. This collection features some great tales of horror. All of them are different and draw you into their pages with a magical touch.

I have my copy. Do you have yours?

Blaze McRob


Book description:

It's all in your head with one helpful shrink.
The end's boundary is blurred, I think.
Friendly kids never need a guard dog.
The boko emerges from his bog.
Salvation for May in an attic trunk.
Blackhead squeezer vomits chunks.
Wrath of bully victim runs deep.
Mad beasts end up in tranqued heap.
So pampered are the slaughterees.
Not so the help, the worker bees.

PAUSE FOR THOUGHT - FREEDOM OF (EVEN REVOLTING) SPEECH - BY TERRI DELCAMPO



http://terridelcampo.blogspot.com/2016/10/freedom-of-even-revolting-speech.html
Terri DelCampo gives her opinions about free speech. Even with issues and people she feels strongly about, she does not think people should have to limit what they have to say. These rights are guaranteed in the Constitution.

As much as I might disagree with people and some of the stupid, revolting things they have to say, they have the right to say them. Of course, it's a double edged sword. I don't respect the people who are truly disgusting, and I have every right to attack them in print. Sometimes, it's not worth the effort. Things like this can be a huge time suck with opinionated people who don't care to approach things from a humanistic point of view.

A case of the good, the bad, and the ugly. Read Terri's post and see if you agree.

ARE THERE REALLY REASONS FOR THE BAD STUFF? - BY TERRI DELCAMPO




http://disabilitychallengeswithterridelcampo.blogspot.com/2016/01/are-there-really-reasons-for-bad-stuff.html
Terri DelCampo has added another great post to her Disability Challenges with Terri DelCampo website http://disabilitychallengeswithterridelcampo.blogspot.com/. This time she discusses ARE THERE REALLY REASONS FOR THE BAD STUFF? One thing I admire about Terri is the fact she refuses to let handicaps get in her way. When there is something she wants to do, she does it. And, it's not always easy.

Read her post above and others she has written there. She provides links to her other websites as well. Terri writes in many genres. She is best known for her horror tales, but she has much more to grab your attention.

Happy reading.

THESAURUS: DEVIL BOOK - YEA OR NAY? BY TERRI DELCAMPO





http://www.writenowwithterridelcampo.blogspot.com/2016/02/thesaurus-devil-book-yea-or-nay.html
Tips on thesaurus use from Terri DelCampo on her Write Now with Terri DelCampo blog:


"As with chocolate brownies, moderation and discipline is the key when using a thesaurus.  I know there are writers giving tips everywhere saying that the thesaurus should never be cracked, but I disagree. 

First, you can learn a lot from a thesaurus on the expand-your-vocabulary horizon.  However, the thesaurus should be an editing tool more than a writing tool.  Write the story using words you absolutely know.  If there are words you use that you are not one hundred percent certain about, look up their synonyms in a thesaurus first, to give you context.  But then, look up the specific definitions for the word and its synonyms in a dictionary to be certain.  Even then, if you look up the synonym you plan to use, and the definition is the less common one, chances are it might not be correct in your story. 

For example, the matriarch in my fictitious town of Owl's Nest is a witch, and I wanted to find synonyms for the word witch because it comes up in my stories a lot."
There are some useful tips that might help you out.
