I’m sorry, that I don’t come so much around visiting blogs, as I use to. My energy level is very low at the moment, why I don’t do so much, as I use to, not either my nature posts. I will be back, when I feel the energy again. Know that you are in my mind and I try my best to visit as many blogs, as I follow and as I can.
In the meanwhile I do my best to recharge my energy in the nature and create new jewelry, when possible.
The weather here in Spain, where I live are going against autumn and my body is not so satisfied with this, even I feel, that it is now possible to walk long walks again without being exhausted by the heat. Like many people with rheumatism my body needs to warm up, before I’m able to do so much. This I almost forgot in the nice summertime, where I only had problems in very wet periods.
A new follower at my Facebook for my shop told me, that she could not visit my blog without receive a warning, that my blog could be dangerous for her PC’s security. Have you received same kind of warnings? Please tell me, thank you.
For your knowledge, I take very much care of my own PC’s security and don’t allow bad things inside my PC.
For you to know, what I do, when I create a new post for my jewelry: I go to one of my shops at either Etsy or DaWanda and create a new selling there. After that I copy the photo and insert this in my blogpost and create my post in here. I think that can be the problem, just because I copy the photo from another website.
Even I change this, I will have to change all my blog posts for you not to receive this warnings, so I have decided to go on in same way as I use to and I hope that you will not be scared for visiting my blog. I didn’t know, that I could get this problem before after very, very long time, when this kind woman told me.
I hope to hear from you, also about your experiences in same way.
First of all thank you very much for taking part in my Blog Tour for Angelic Business 1. Pink Matters. Reader, don’t worry, I’m not here forever, just twisting the arm of your favourite blogger and borrowing a bit of space.
Author Olga Núñez Miret
My name is Olga Núñez Miret and I’m a writer, translator, reader, psychiatrist, I love movies, plays, fitness, owls and recently have taken up meditation (mindfulness). (I thought I might as well summarise and not take too much of your time). I’ll leave you some links at the end just in case you want to find out even more about me (I’m not sure I’d recommend it, but hey…do your worst!).
I’ve been writing since I was quite young and I write in whatever style the story I have in my head wants to be written in. So far literary fiction, romance, YA, thriller…and a few unfinished works.
Around five years ago I discovered and read quite a few interesting Young Adult books and had an idea for what I thought could be a series. At the time I wrote the first of the novels and after trying to find an agent or a traditional publisher without much success, I started self-publishing, but decided to publish some of my other books first. Since then I’ve published 12 books (6 original books and their translations, as I write in English and Spanish).
I kept thinking about Angelic Business and a few months later wrote the second novel in the series: Shades of Greg. (No, nothing to do with…)
And last year, as part of NaNoWriMo I wrote the third novel in the series, Pink, Angel or Demon?
As I had written the three, I thought I’d publish them pretty close to each other so people wouldn’t have to wait to know what happened next (at least not too much).
The three books in the Angelic Business collection are now available for pre-order at the special price of $0.99 each. It’s a bargain price and they’ll go up shortly after publication.
Don’t worry. My writing is better than my video-creating skills, but as I’d been taking all those pictures of angels, I thought I might as well.
And here, the series:
Angelic Business 1. Pink Matters
Angelic Business 1. Pink Matters
You are Pink, not the prettiest girl, but smart and with plenty of resources. What do you do when your best male friend offers to have sex with you, because he thinks you’re a lost cause? You plot your revenge with your two best female friends, of course!
It seems you’re in luck when a new and mysterious student appears. And, to top it all, he seems interested in you too. He could take part in the plan. But then, he seems to have a plan of his own… He insists he’s not just an ordinary boy. And what seemed so easy to begin with, gets more and more complicated when Heaven and Hell come knocking at Pink’s door.
Pink Matters is the story of Pink, a 17 year old girl, good student, articulate and smart. What she has never been the centre of attention or made the top ten of the most popular and attractive girls at school. When two guys, both claiming to be angels, insist that she is, indeed, ‘special’, fight for her attention and help and tell her she is the key to the future of the universe, she can’t help but ask: Why me?
And a snippet:
“Who are you?” Lorna asked. Before she could say anything else, she froze as if paralysed. And the same happened to Sylvia.
“Oh no, not again” I said.
“Hi Pink. I’m Azrael. I’m…”
“Let me guess…You’re an angel.”
I could say he smiled but it was more like a white light radiating from between his lips. His voice also seemed slightly “otherworldly”. He was nothing like G. Flesh and blood didn’t seem to be his priority.
“Yes. I am.”
“O…K….And…to what do I owe the pleasure of your visit? If you are going to make an announcement of some sort…I could have done with some notice.”
The light now seemed to radiate from his whole “body” if that was what it was. Somehow his show was much more believable than G’s. And scarier.
“It’s not an announcement as such. But you should know…G…”
“I know he told you he’s an angel.”
I looked at him. Maybe he was different to G but he could be as annoying as him. And interfering.
“Yes. I also “know” things…In my case it is because “I” am an angel. He has not been truthful about his identity.”
Pink Matters is currently available for pre-order and will be published on the 26th of June 2015 (Amazon time). So, if you’re reading this post after the 26th of June, you’re in luck and can get the book straight away! (I’m also publishing it in other platforms although as their processing speed is different the dates might vary. Do check there or in my website, that I regularly update).
In case you’re intrigued, I leave you the cover (reveal!) and links to the other two books:
Angelic Business 2. Shapes of Greg
Angelic Business 2. Shapes of Greg
What more could happen after the death and resurrection of your mother? What could Heaven and Hell toss at Pink to top that? Well, to start with, she gets a new hellish babysitter, who is seriously hot. And although everybody likes him, he only has eyes for her. When she learns what the price was for the ‘miracle’ of saving her mother, she realises that she must be careful, as Hell doesn’t lose gracefully.
One of her friends wants to find the perfect man, the other one gets into a relationship she refuses to talk about, there’s a demon who doesn’t know when to give up and an angel who seems to have his own agenda. What on Earth, Hell or Heaven is going on?
Shapes of Greg is available for pre-order and will be published on the 15th of July.
OK, OK, OK. Pink gets it. She’s the Elected, whether she likes it or no. Heaven and Hell are closing in, and their envois are closer home than ever. So close she can’t ignore them. And she’ll do everything but.
However long she has, she’s determined to make it count. She’ll sort her friends out, she’ll help her family and, she’ll live a bit. And then, she’ll take charge. Because no one will say that Pink went down without a fight. However big and bad the enemy.
Gender benders, romances, old loves that come to fruition, new challenges, divine interventions, tears, laughter and magic. All of that and more. Because, if you’re gonna go, you might as well go with a bang.
Pink, Angel or Demon? is available for pre-order and will be published on the 30th July.
Thanks so much for allowing me to visit and post, thanks so much for reading, and as I always tell them in my blog, if you’ve found it interesting, like, share, comment and CLICK! Oh, and I love reblogs! Ah, and thanks to Lourdes Vidal for her covers.
As you might know, I have been away from blogging caused my Son’s visit here in May. Since then I have tried my best to catch up at all your blogs to follow, what has been going on, while I was away.
This seem to be very difficult for me and I found out why. There are so many wonderful blogs in here and I checked up, how many I was following, there are 721 blogs, then I understood why I found it difficult to reach all.
I still have problems by using my tablet and WordPress App, best as I sit and read your posts, it just lock and I need to restart the tablet, go to my Reader and UPS now there are new posts to read, where is this one, I just tried to read? Away…..
This is very annoying and I really do my best to catch all of you, but you will need to keep your patience for a long while, I think, because I don’t know, how to read so many blogs very often. I promise to do my best.
If you think it is long time ago, I visited your blog, then give me a visit and like or comment and I will be back. I have tried to search for some of the special blogs, as I often like to read, but I can’t find you. So much are changed here at WP, new updates all the time and not for the good, not always.
I don’t know from where, that WP sort out, what we can read from our PC, Tablet or Phones, but I could wish, that no one post more than few posts per hour, because if you do and I open my tablet in same time, I only get to read your posts, because they only show me the last 20 posts at time. This can be a reason for me to unfollow you, because I find it very difficult to catch up and read at all the blogs I follow, if you post many posts in one time. Not because I don’t like your blog, but I need to use my tablet for most of my reading, which gives me problems.
We have nice weather here in Spain now, which I also love to enjoy outdoor with coffee at my terrace.
Keep up your good mood and enjoy every day you get.

After having had my son at vacation for 10 days and not been much online this time, I opened my WordPress today and saw it was 2 years ago, I started this blog and I did never expect my blog to grow so much, as it has done.
Thank you to every single one of you, without you this would never have been possible 😀
I’m looking forward to continue and develope my blog and hope that you will enjoy, what will come up.
A happy Odin waiting for me to take photos for you
Remember that you can enlarge the photos by clicking at them
Where I walk with Odin there are areas, where no one take care any longer. Some places there are left houses too. In one of the areas, there are several big Almond Trees, as now are growing wild. They do carry almonds, but not so many as the better kept Almond Trees. The almonds are growing very well now, why I wish to show you these photos
Journalism can be many things. Sometimes we can read articles, as were they found in the air of something not existing, which then lead us to think, why at all write an article, if nothing is true anyway.
There are good journalism too, the one that call for us to read all the article and not just some of it. Some have this ability to be able to catch us, just like a great author. They write what they think may be the truth and nothing else…
Years ago I worked with journalism, while I published first newspapers and since magazines, I found out how easy it was to be an honest writer and how unpopular I could be, if I was too honest, while I wrote reviews for books, restaurants etc.
I had the minding that I denied to write at all, if I did not like what I should write about. It could be a book, where the publisher send me a box with different books, as they would like me to write reviews about. Or a restaurant who wanted me to write they were the best, which I denied to do, unless they really did create great food.
Journalism can be a great way to keep track at our lives too, we can create our own kind of journal with goals, dreams and hope for our lives. To write what we dream about is also a great way to kickstart the mind about going for our dreams.
Do you go for your dreams?
This post is part of the prompt SoCS by Linda, as you find here:
I just read that we should have 330 days with sun per year here where I live now. We do also have sun now, even it is only in the middle of the day. In the evening, night and morning here is really cold. Many got snow in Spain, I feel lucky, it was not here. I need the sun to feel alive, for my health and mind.
Untouched snow are beautiful and in the cities mostly ugly. We need to go away from the city to find the nice and beautiful snow, at least to see the beauty.
When I think back to the winters in Denmark, I don’t miss them, they were so very cold. Not always snow, but freezing all over, which resulted in a life, where I needed to take good care not to get damages. I really hope, that my family in Denmark take good care of themselves now, where they got a lot of snow.
I do my best to stay warm here. The houses here are builded to avoid the sun and not the cold. Mostly of the houses are not isolated, many so bad that you can look out through open holes around windows and doors, which makes it very difficult to keep the warm inside, when we have heavy wind like now. Then is wool blankets a great idea.
My cats have their lamb skins, as they love to lie at. I do understand them 😀
No matter the weather we are going out for long walks first in the green nature for playing and training, then we visit the beach and play more there and sometimes Odin is swimming, which he enjoy all the year. The water doesn’t feel so cold, when I wash my face and hands in the sea, maybe that is why Odin love to swim so much.
I feel that the salt water helps me to get rid of bad emotions or mood. Just to stand at the beach, look over the Mediterranean Sea, listen to the waves gives me so much peace in my mind. Sometimes I do my meditation by the beach and I use to feel totally recharged, when we go home after that. Even Odin come very close to me, when I do my meditation at the beach, he want to be a part of that and maybe he receive love this way too.
Odin at the beach
We have several kind of beaches here. Many are with stones, as are not sharp any longer. The sea did shape them, so they are nice to walk at, also for Odin. I do check him to avoid any damages. The beaches with more sand are the beaches, where it can be difficult to visit in the summer caused the many tourists. Then I’m happy that we have our nice beaches close to our area with stones. Not so comfortable to lie at, which give us chances too 😀
I love to take photos, when we are out at our walks. Sunsets are very beautiful here, why I also photograph these very often and show you the best of them 😉
