My girls and I were hanging with my BFF when I ran across DAWN AND DARKNESS by L A BANKS. Of course, I picked it up. I am hoping the other four already planned issues will still come out. If they do, they are mine!

Took a day trip to visit my BFF in Morehead City. We kicked back for a couple of hours on the beach. My awesome BFF waiting until I was chest deep in the Atlantic before telling me she had just watched shark week and we were probally surrounded by sharks but, just couldn't see them.

Okay, after surviving a possible shark attack, we grabbed a bite to eat and headed to beaufort and my friends art studio/store THE BLUE DRAGONFLY.

We had a great time checking out the antique shops. One owner even grew a cute little garden in the walkway beside her shop.

We had to take a break from fun for a bit when my BFF's soon to be daughter-in-law backed into my car. After taking care of business it was on to Blackbeard's house.

We plan on going back and taking the night walking tour. Not as scary during the day, huh?  We walked the graveyard that's suppose to have the grave of a man Blackbeard killed when he walked in on his wife dancing in front of him before he found out that was her brother.

The graveyard is a part of the ghost walk that includes Blackbeard's house. Well, that's all. Just a quick check in.

Today the writing world mourns the loss of Leslie Esdaile (L.A.) Banks, author of the Vampire Huntress and Crimson Moon series in the paranormal genre, as well as romance, thrillers, and motivational non-fiction. For the last several months Leslie had been battling adrenal cancer.

Leslie was known not just for her works which touched the lives of many readers, but also as someone who opened her heart and arms to new authors to welcome them to the fold.
One of Leslie’s proudest and most memorable moments was introducing President Obama at a Health care Reform rally in early March 2010.

All of us here at Bitten by Books hold Leslie’s family and friends in our thoughts during this difficult time.
