Looking for a good read for the weekend/upcoming week?

Street Magic by William Hammett.

An original story that I enjoyed from start to finish!

Happy Reading and Weekend. 🙂

Street Magic by William Hammett 

From the Amazon product page:

The people of Pace, Indiana, are jolted from their routine small-town lives when a street magician, Lark the Magnificent, begins staging one incredible show after another. There is seemingly nothing this man in an electric-blue suit can’t do, from levitating above the sidewalk to making it snow on a sunny day.

But Joe Bailey, meek bachelor and town archivist, notices that things in Pace aren’t quite right. People are going missing, stores are closing, and someone—or some thing—is living in a row of abandoned homes on River Road.

In this homage to Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes, William Hammett has written a chilling novel in lyrical prose about the evil locked behind the doors of small-town America, an evil that Joe Bailey will have to combat with his own brand of street magic.

New Cookbook Progress and Reviewers Needed

potato soup

I’ve been working on my third cookbook for several months now and have been making slow but steady progress on this project.

This will be the second book/Ebook in the Groovy Green Kitchen series.

This one is all about yummy soups along with a selection of easy, interchangeable side dishes to go with them.

I ♥ soups so much and all year long, so this is definitely an easy topic/book project for me to take on with a lot of interest and enthusiasm!

I have had some unforeseen delays in getting this book completed (most beyond my control) but now I’m thinking that wasn’t such a bad thing after all. 😉 Summer is NOT the time to release a new soup cookbook, the fall is definitely better.

And by autumn: The Groovy Green Kitchen (Volume 2): Simply, Super, Supper Soups will definitely be a “done deal” 😉

In the meantime, I am also still promoting all my other books, including my newest one:

Laughing AT the Grim Reaper! Gems of Wisdom for Aging Well

 that I just published in April.

I need more Amazon reviews for all my books and here’s where you come in. 😉

If any of you are interested in reading/reviewing one of my books: 

Amazon Author’s Page for Geraldine Helen Hartman (click to see list)

send me an email (subject line: book reviewer) at:

veggiecook @ myway . com (spaces removed)

and I will be happy to send along a review/gift Kindle copy for this purpose.

I have 6 Ebooks now available so this is definitely not just for the cooks who are reading this! 😉

And thanks to everyone who has already written reviews for my books/Ebooks! Most appreciated.

Happy Reading, Cooking and Mid-Week!

Looking for a Quick Knit Gift to Make?

kindle cover for post 1

This pattern post has been getting quite a few hits lately, based on my stats, so thought I’d feature this easy knit project again, here at Veggies.. just in time to make for Christmas.

 I made the one pictured above and am working on a couple for gifts right now too.

What I really like about this cover is not only how it looks but how protective it is too. Nice and thick because of the seed stitch used throughout, so it really cushions the ereader; unlike some of the other ereader cover patterns and even the commercial covers, that are available.

This pattern was one that I found over at Ravelry.

Laura, the designer has graciously provided a PDF of the pattern: Kindle_Cover

kindle cover for post 2

Just seed/moss stitch throughout, knitting in the round  (p the k and k the p) to form this lovely, textural yarn fabric.

I used some wool from my stash. The yarn color shown is Fire Tweed by Lopi.

The only thing I am changing this time is to make it an inch shorter than the pattern. If you decide to make one of these, measure your own ereader and make the cover (up to flap) just 1/2″ more  than the length of your ereader so it fits snugly. It will stretch a bit too, with repeated use.

Another tip, if using a wool yarn for this project, DO give it a soak in a wool/delicate wash detergent after making the cover and before using it, to soften up the yarn. I used Eucalan (click to read my review of that great product) and it softened up this yarn beautifully. Wool yarns can be a bit rough and you wouldn’t want to scratch the screen of your ereader.

Who needs to spend $20. +  for one of those generic ereader covers? 😉

And handmade gifts are always so special.  

Happy Knitting! 🙂
