Good News, Meet the Muffin Commandos, and Hats Off Corner Welcomes Patricia Lynne

Good News with a touch of Gossip.

George Clooney received a lifetime achievement award and was roasted a bit by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. They pointed out that his wife, who is a human rights lawyer, has a significant list of lifetime achievements to her credit and didn't it seem strange it was her husband getting the award. Read More

Hats Off Corner With Patricia Lynne

There is only one path.

Born mortal along with his three brothers, Michael is an Archangel with a specific role: hunt fallen angels and send them back to Hell. He is determined in his mission, never straying from his appointed path, until he meets Lake Divine, and discovers there may be more to his beliefs than blind duty.

But Lake is not who he seems. Offspring of a human and a fallen angel, a Nephilim, Lake must choose his own destiny: give in to the coldness and embrace the dark, or seek the light and rise above the sins of his father.

Two paths lay before them, but only one has the potential to destroy them both.

Tweets to share:
Walk the path. Face evil. Defeat it. #PathOfAngels
#urbanfantasy #NA #NewAdult

Michael thought he knew what lay on his path, but he didn’t see Lake coming. #PathOfAngels #urbanfantasy #NALit

Lake knew he was divine, but is he strong enough to prove it to the world? #PathOfAngels #NA #lgbt

About the Author:
Patricia Josephine never set out to become a writer. In fact, she never considered it an option during high school and college. She was all about art. On a whim, she wrote down a story bouncing in her head. That was the start of it and she hasn't regretted a moment. She writes young adult under the name Patricia Lynne.

Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow, and an obsession with Doctor Who.

Hope you'll help Patricia by sharing her Tweets. And be sure to connect with her on her social media. Are you a George Clooney fan? Why did he have to marry and why did she have to be someone absolutely perfect? Are these Muffins fab or what?


  1. Hooray for the muffin commando! And congrats to Patricia!

    (Am I the first to comment? That is exciting in and of itself. It's usually Alex!)


  2. Congratulations, Patricia!
    Tammy is such a card.

  3. Tyrean I dunno, there might not be prompts in there... :) I'll have to tell my writing group about those books. They're always looking for prompts.

    Congratulations, Patricia!

  4. George Clooney has done a lot so I can see him winning this award, though it stands to reason he's got an awesomesauce woman supporting him in his causes who's win-worthy as well :-)

    It's so lovely meeting more of the Muffin team :-)

    And Congrats to Patricia on her release. It sounds pretty interesting.

  5. I remember when George Clooney first got engaged to her, in trade publications in her industry they referred to her new fiance as an American actor and the former star of the TV show ER. It definitely put it in perspective. We all know George Clooney, but there are stars in every field, not just movies.

  6. The muffin team made me giggle this morning. Yes, Elizabeth, one can do quite nicely with peanutbutter. Hmm, adding a bit of chocolate to it is particularly yummy. Tammy, lol! That's a pretty energetic muffin, just sayin'.

    George Clooney and wife are good for one another--both notable in their respective fields. More of an equal ground.

    Congrats to Patricia!

  13. Hi, Muffin Commandoes. Have fun.

  22. Congrats on the book! It was a brilliant send up of Clooney who was getting this award but meanwhile his new wife has done so much whereas he made "The Monument's Men".


Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
