SEiCENTO

"SEiCENTO" has been under construction for the past few months, since even before the new NEWS page. It's now ready for viewing! This page is for my Short Stories, Tall Tales, themed only by their unexpected endings. Check out: SEiCENTO: Short Stories, Tall Tales @ http://terrisedmak2.blogspot.com.au
       I hope to add steadily to their number as the inspiration takes me. This year will be full of travels and interesting experiences, so I think there'll be inspiration aplenty. 
       And there's some tale-telling regarding the Tall Tales when you visit Terri's Blog @  http://terrisedmak.blogspot.com.au!

Who doesn't love sweepstakes?

For readers in North America this March, there is the chance to win a copy of EMPIRE FOR LIBERTY in the Rebecca's Reads Sweepstakes! As you probably know, EMPIRE FOR LIBERTY has received some terrific reviews, such as this latest write up in That's Life! Fast Fiction

This second instalment in the Liberty
& Property Legends trilogy sees the
ghastly consequences of Ed Parsons’
land grab, and the accompanying
murder, begin to spread. Ambitious
reporter Emmaline Roberts arrives in
Cheyenne to investigate and is soon
relying on the not-so-tender mercies
of Sheriff Cliff Ryan to stay alive. A
sprawling Western, with the scope
and intrigue of a great soap, this
story makes for compulsive reading.

CAMPAIGN USA - Follow up

The official campaign has concluded but the follow up continues. Such is the nature of publicity. All sorts of good things for HEARTLAND are in the wind and time will tell where this trail on the journey will lead. I hope to be able to report on where you will be able to find HEARTLAND reviews and promotions in the coming weeks.

Fly away Blackbird, this is Osgood Pie!

Just yesterday I posted another culinary adventure on Blackbird Pie - the Osgood Pie. Can I tempt you? Sweet, scrumptious, packed with pecans and raisins, and with a solid tradition going back many, many generations, my humble efforts were gobbled up before the pie was even cold. 

Here is the link to take you directly to Blackbird Pie, where yesterday in the kitchen the Osgood was the pie of the moment.

Blackbird Pie

Kettle's on !

'Osgood Pie is one of those recipes that has been around since long before anyone can remember. And according to my research, some folks think it turns up most often in Texas cookbooks, but I haven't gone through a whole bunch of Texas cookbooks looking for it, so I'm just spreading folklore here. Speaking of folklore, the Osgood Pie could have got its unusual name three ways...'



New Look News Page!

If you have made it to here, chances are you will have noticed that my News page has just been updated. The page is more like a directory than a page of news, I guess, the point being that for me it's important to able to keep you up-to-date with everything that's going on, and although it's inevitable that at some point I will unavoidably be reliant on a web technician to update my website, I really prefer that where it can be prevented it not be a constant occurrence. Now, that was a mouthful to simply say I just want to be in control of my news page! And I love the immediacy as well as the conversational feel of this new arrangement.

So Over the Wire will keep you updated with regular news; join me on Terri's Blog for guest blogs, topics, thoughts & ideas, the album (which will have more added to it as time goes by), and all my reviews get posted there as well; In the Media page tracks the progress of my books (and me!) in print, over the airwaves and online; Blackbird Pie continues to be all about food from the Legends' era.

I hope you enjoy cruising around the News page features; there's more... click on the ad for eBooks and be taken to the General Store where you can purchase ebooks direct from my website for a fabulous introductory price. Seicento is another project I'm working on... it will be a little while till it comes online but not too much longer I hope.

I believe I mentioned at the beginning of the year that 2012 was going to be big for Tank & Ferry Entertainment!

There are plans for travel, location research, lots of writing and publishing, and a major book fair! 2012 is the year to get out there and be amongst it. And through my new News page I hope to take you along for the ride.


CAMPAIGN USA - Week Four

Monday, March 5 2012 : As we enter the final 'official' week of the campaign there has been lots of activity from regional publications, particularly Wyoming, which is very welcome considering, as readers would know, most of the Legends series is set in Wyoming. This week there will be focus on blog sites which are becoming so important now to writers. The world is changing at such a rapid pace! And those changes jostle for the coveted position of most popular; within those changes comes that cementing of what's to be the new norm, followed by the inevitable evolution of that into something else. I will be thrilled with whatever eventuates from this campaign. It is such a privilege to write and to be read.
