Good News and Hat's Off Corner Welcomes Tara Tyler


Good News



Georgie Craig has a rare disability that affects his ability to walk. But with this Thera-Suit he's able to take some very important 3-year-old steps on his own. This suit was designed to help astronauts regain muscle strength after long periods in space. Now it helps right here on old Mother Earth.




Hat's Off Corner Welcomes Tara  Tyler


I'm so excited to be here at Lee's! When Lee visited me, she mentioned she doesn't particularly care to write short stories. But I'm just the opposite! That's how I got started, with poetry, flash fiction, and short stories. I love getting a good prompt and popping out a little ditty! It's details I need to work on.

And speaking of short stories, I'd like to present an anthology put together by my publisher...

Welcome to a hidden world of wonder, wiles, and weirdness. CHRONOLOGY by Curiosity Quills is a collection of riveting short stories sure to keep you up at night for more reasons than one. Twenty-four to be exact! There's fantasy, magic, sci fi, paranormal, historical, humor, romance, superheroes, and more!




My story is THE COMEBACK - A tragic teenage love story, but death won't keep them apart.

Here's where you can find CHRONOLOGY:


I'm also hosting a giveaway this month! Haven't done one in a while, so it's about time! (Get it? Chronology? Time?)

My Quote For the Day: "Nothing so dates an era as its conception of the future." Brian Eno, Music producer

What's our view of the future? Helping kids walk on earth while we learn how to walk on other planets, in other galaxies? Doesn't Tara's new adventure look exciting? Hope you'll stop in at Amazon and get your copy.

  19. I'm loving the cover! Seriously, wow!
    And that is fantastic that NASA tech has once again improved life here on Earth. People sometimes forget how much we've learned and gained by sending people to space. It gave scientists a reason to think in new ways, VERY out of the box, and has resulted in many achievements. Helping a child to walk instead of being in a wheelchair? That's worth every tax dollar ever spent. :)

  28. The suit is cool. I've used suits in several stories I've written.

    Congrats to Tara!

  29. can't imagine how much that Therasuit will cost.... makes you think how there are so many kids and people around the world who can't even get a wooden leg if they're missing one, let alone those space legs that legless sprinters use for running.... And while some are going up to Mars and other planets, other still have mud in their streets or donkeys to travel on....
