My #RRBC October-ween block party winners

Last month, the Rave Reviews Book Club had a festive little block party that gave the attendees a fairly large group of blogs to visit, each with a wonderful post of the author’s choice.

Each stop had a giveaway, and I am excited to tell you who won mine! 😃

(1) $10 Amazon gift card – Beem Weeks

(1) ebook copy of ZOMBIE DAWN… – Karen Black

(1) ebook copy of MEGAMAX – Shirley Harris-Slaughter

I want to thank everyone who supported the October-ween Block Party! It was a lot of fun and I am already excited about next year’s event.

I especially want to thank those of you who stopped by during my day on the tour. I hope you enjoyed taking a small step behind the scenes of #ZombieDawn. It was such a fun story to right and I’m hoping I will be able to expand it into a full-length novel at some point.

It got pretty crazy in my little world for a while, but now that things have settled down a bit, I hope to get back on track with all things writing. 😁

Thank you for having me on your blog for day seven of the Just Her Poetry Spotlight Tour!

Finn Facts:

I love nature, and my poetry reflects that.
My favorite genres to read are fantasy, mystery, action, romance, and horror. It’s a bonus when they’re blended.

Take a journey with D.L. Finn as she blends her love of nature with her deepest emotions. Sit with her on the forest floor observing its tranquil beauty, or stroll along the ocean’s shore admiring the vastness of its horizon. Here in these peaceful moments you’ll be able to experience her thoughts and feelings in the light—and in the darkness. This is a thought-provoking collection of poetry that invites the reader into all the seasons of a soul.

Excerpt from Just HerPoetry:



It hurts less each time you leave.
But still you take a piece of me with you.
I think of you in your youth.
A sparkle in your eyes…
Joy in your laughter…
Holding you in my arms…
It all stays with me.
You grew and became.
I was amazed and perplexed.
At times you brought me joy and pain.
I always knew you’d leave,
There was never any doubt.
I felt a bit of pride and sadness,
When you walked to your car.
You’re doing what you’re supposed to do.
So am I.
You’ll always be:
In my heart…
In my mind…
In my prayers.
Every day.
So, leave as you must,
And become what you are.
Distance doesn’t mean a thing to me,
Because when you go, a part of me goes with you.
You’ll always be my child.
I’ll always be your mother.
I know the world deserves you,
And you deserve the world.
I’ll go back now into my own world.
Watchful now for that text, I made it home safely.
Because mothers never stop worrying.
They never stop being proud.
Or ever stop loving even when their child leaves.
