                                                               It's not what is said
                                                               It's how it's stated;
                                                               It's not what you write
                                                               It's how it's written;
                                                               It's not what's implied
                                                               It's what's inferred.

My severed heart cries
Your razor desire cuts
Love pools at my feet

Recovery, New Story and Library Talk by BJ Neblett

Well I am still here, although there were times this past week when I thought I might feel better dead. I now have a greater appreciation for my friend Kristin and what she must have gone through. Having your gallbladder out is no picnic, no matter what the doctor or anyone else may tell you. I had the ‘simple’ procedure on Monday, five days ago, and am still very sore and achy. I was off work all week and when I return I am on light duty, no heavy lifting for three weeks. And here I thought I’d be up and about, doing well in a couple of days! Anywho, the doc says everything went well and it was the wise decision to have the operation now as I had quite a few stones built up and they were partially blocking one of the tubes… whatever that means. Thanks to everyone at Swedish Hospital First Hill in Seattle for making my stay an easy one, and to my friend Alissa for being there for me. And thanks to all of you out there in blogland for the wishes and prayers.
I didn’t get as much work done while off as I had hoped, meaning basically none. I did manage to finish a new story; more on that another time. Also, as mentioned before, I will be guest speaker at December’s It’s About Time, at the Ballard (Seattle) Branch Library. I did manage to get my talk on Flash Fiction finalized. Those of you in the area please plan to stop by Thursday, December 10th, at 6 PM. It’s free and only lasts about two hours, with a Q&A period and an open mike segment.
December 1st the new edition of Paradox Ethereal Magazine hits the ether, available on line as a free download for all. It will feature a story by me as well as a powerful, touching short story by my friend and fellow author KJ McPike. Be sure to check it out and leave comments for the magazine’s wonderful and hard working publisher Mary. If you are not familiar with KJ McPike and her new young adult fantasy Xodus, justclick here.
Thanks for taking time out to read my blogs and for putting up with my ranting and ramblings. As always, link, like, comment and be sure to share the love. C’ya next time.
Peace,
BJ

Surgery, Gallbladders and Reviews by BJ Neblett

From the good news and, well… not too bad news department. Below you will find two recent reviews to my books, Ice Cream Camelot and Elysian Dreams. Both books are still doing well, thank you, and I look forward to the paperback release of my memoir, Ice Cream Camelot, sometime late next spring or early summer. (In publishing speak that means probably mid-summer). Stay tuned! By the way, both of my books as well as all of the magazines my stories are featured in are available by clicking the link to the right: BJ Publications.
As for the rest… yes, I am not crazy about hospitals, and yes, I will be having Tommy John surgery before year’s end. But closer to home, I will be having my gallbladder out next Monday, November 9. The good folks at Swedish Hospital, First Hill, in Seattle will be taking care of me. This is the same place that did my facial surgery and metal implants last year. Despite my dislike of being in hospitals, they really do a good job of making patients feel at ease. My stay should be a short on… hopefully, with surgery at noon on the 9th, and released late Tuesday or possibly Wednesday. I live alone and they will be keeping me captive until they are certain I can take care of myself. Afterwards I should have plenty of time to do some serious writing.
Thanks loyal readers. As always, link, like comment and share the love.
Peace,
BJ

Elysian Dreams
BJ Neblett
Brighton Publishing
ISBN: 9781936587735
Reviewed By Margaret Dolan
Official Apex Reviews Rating: ***** (5 Stars)

Elysian Dreams, by BJ Neblett, is an intriguing offering of fantasy fiction. Though it may seem difficult to combine such disparate elements as mob violence and space/time travel, Neblett pulls it off with aplomb. Add to that a motley mix of characters and their curious backstories, and you have a page-turning literary delight.
Elysian Dreams chronicles the lives of a trio of individuals from various different backgrounds – lives that are about to change in ways they could never imagine. Whereas the answers to most of life’s problems tend to lie in either our past or future, the protagonists in Neblett’s tale are drawn to the solutions they seek in another time and place altogether. As their lives repeatedly intersect, the unwitting characters find themselves drawn together for reasons only a mysterious, mystical figure seems to understand, and their resulting adventure soon reaches multi-dimensional proportions.
The telling of such a fantastical tale as Elysian Dreams is not an easy task, particularly when it comes to character development, but Neblett does an excellent job of providing just enough detail and crafting compelling, convincing characters in the weaving of a winding narrative sure to leave a lasting impression on the reader. The variety of issues Neblett addresses, along with his highly skillful storytelling, sets Elysian Dreams apart as an insightful volume worthy of longstanding reflection. Sure to create a healthy following of fans eagerly anticipating Neblett’s future works.

Ice Cream Camelot

Reviewed By Margaret Dolan
Official Apex Reviews Rating: ***** (5 Stars)

There’s a famous saying that goes, “If you remember the ‘60s, then you weren’t really there.” While that may be true for many who came of age during the turbulent decade, B.J. Neblett is the exception. Throughout the pages of Ice Cream Camelot, Neblett introduces the reader to his own personal journey through an era that reshaped an entire nation – both for good and bad.
Touching on everything from his first school boy crush to his forays into substance abuse and juvenile delinquency, Neblett bears no shame in revealing some of the most intimate moments and events of his young life; however, rather than just serve as an anecdotal retelling of his formative years, Ice Cream Camelot skillfully intermingles Neblett’s personal sojourn with the prevailing cultural and political events of the time. As such, not only does the reader get to witness the developments that caused Neblett to lose his personal naiveté, we also bear firsthand witness to the “waking up” of a collective nation.
As a bonus treat, some readers may be surprised to learn that Neblett’s sundry youthful adventures ultimately led him to become DJ Billy James, the popular radio DJ who still carries much sway throughout the music industry.

One doesn’t have to be a fan of the ‘60s to appreciate the lasting impact the decade has left on our nation’s history. Likewise, you don’t have to be a fan of memoirs to enjoy Ice Cream Camelot; you need only be open to taking an introspective look at your own impactful history

Things

Things I miss the most:
Walks, talks, tears, sighs, holding hands;
the touch of your breath.
Things I’ll never know:
Youth, innocence, childish dreams;
the warmth of your smile.
Things I can’t forget:
Yesterday, the day before;
all that we once shared.

I have a new story in October’s Romance Magazine. Just click the image to the right!
Recently, I had a fairly serious gall bladder attack. This came almost exactly two years to the day to a similar incident which I spoke of right here. (Blog: Saturday23, 2013, Stepping Out Of Format For A Moment) Regular readers of mine know well the large part irony plays in my life. I’ll leave the comments, like sleeping dogs, lie, and simply say I believe my altruism that day two years ago was not only tested but cursed. That curse has come to fruition. As they say, no good deed goes unpunished. I have an appointment with a surgeon this week and we’ll discuss possible dates. At this point I am sure it would be wish full thinking to expect the young lady in question to return the favor. I am not a fan of spending time in hospitals, visitor or otherwise, and yes, all things considered, am a bit apprehensive.
I have been asked once again to speak at the Ballard (Seattle) Branch Library’s excellent monthly series, It’s About Time. I’ll be the lead speaker and will talk on the art of Flash Fiction. If you are in the area, please come join us. It is free, lasting just a couple of hours, and will be on Thursday, December 10, 2015, at 6 PM.

Also, in December, the new issue of Paradox Ethereal Magazine will feature a powerful fiction story of mine. I’ll post a reminder as time gets closer for both events.
Thanks, and as always be sure to like, link, comment and share the love. We love to hear from you.

Chaos, Quotes, Farewell To A Friend And A New Story Published by BJ Neblett

This used to be my playground...

I've been doing a lot of thinking here recently... one of the perks of having time on your hands. Only sometimes the things that I get to think about are not always pleasant or happy... one of the perks of life. A quote I stumbled upon sometime ago popped into my mind as I was dealing with some personal issues. Why such a quote would make its presence so powerfully and literally at such a time is another question to ponder at another time. The only thing I've managed to come up with in the last 3 or 4 weeks is another quote from American poet John Greenleaf Whittier:
                       "Of all sad words of tongue and pen
                        The saddest are these: It might have been."
Powerful words indeed. Give them a ponder yourself sometime along with the ones that seem to have taken up residence inside of my brain:
                        "And I'd chose you; in a hundred lifetimes; in a hundred worlds;
                         in any version of reality, I'd find you and I'd chose you."
                                            The Chaos Of Stars
In the meantime, enjoy my latest offering in eFiction magazine, available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the publisher, fictionmagazines.com Just click the image to the right.
I've got more thinking to do...

Saturday February 28 A Month Of Love from BJ Neblett

We've come to the end of another month. Spring is almost here. Just as the day's go on... let your love continue. Just as the earth is renewed with the blessings of the new season... find new, fun and exciting ways to continually renew your love for one another.

"See with your mind...
      Speak with your heart...
            Touch with your eyes...
                  Love with your entire being."

Time goes by so slowly and time can do so much/
Are you still mine/
I need your love/
I need your love/
God speed your love to me/

I hope you have enjoyed this month of love as much as I have enjoy bringing it to you. But just because we have come to the end of the month doesn't mean that the love has to end. As mentioned here before, love is a marathon not a sprint. It isn't easy, but it is well worth the trip. And like any journey, there will be detours, obstacles and rough spots along the way. But in the words of Bob Marley, "... if she's (he's) worth it you won't give up..." Thanks for all of the kind words and comments to this blog and my writer's blog. As always I will continue to make irregular posts of my poetry and other thoughts and musings here; and more stories to my writer's blog. I look forward to a great 2015 including more stories, more romance shorts and maybe even a new novel or two. So, as they say, stay tuned! God bless and continue to share the love.
BJ

By CA Griffin

We are lovely in our pain
Individually sparkling like diamonds hewn by pressure
Capturing light and glowing
Glistening with the dew of our tears

Beautiful in our despair
Raw and open
Passionate and honest

Ah the purity of truth as revealed in conflict
How revealing it is
Sloughing the detritus
Removing the shell
Exposing what we feel

And growing
There is no value in only joy
Endless sun scorches the flesh

And evolving
There is no value in only pain
Swirling waters drown the body

But in balance
We welcome who we are meant to be

Whatever you do wherever you go
You will always know
My love is yours

Though near though far I’ll be by your side
A heart to abide
My love is yours

Thru space and thru time although we’re apart
You stay in my heart
My love is yours

From valley below to rainbow on high
I’ll shout and I’ll sigh
My love is yours

            As tender as a kiss
            My empty arms enfold you
            And as strong as a tear
            My empty heart longs for you

By day or by night you’ll never regret
Please never forget
My love is yours

I pledge and I vow the words of my song
To never do wrong
My love is yours

Whatever you do wherever you go
May you always know
My love is yours

Whatever you do wherever you go
So you’ll always know
Mi amor es tuyo

                                        Afraid to open                        As long as it lasts
                                   The longings inside             Don’t question your heart
                                Untouched and frozen                And love will be ours

And everything I need/
I talk about her I go on and on and on/
'Cause she's everything to me/

Friday February 6 A Month Of Love from BJ Neblett

Hello again. Look for a new romance story Sunday on my writer's blog. In the mean time enjoy this week's story along with today's nod to love from my friend, writer CA Griffin

Love is never easy... especially when it come to expressing it...

Every time I tried to tell you the words just came out wrong/
So I'll have to say I love you in a song

Love is….

Love is a gift
Wrapped in embraces and ribboned with kisses

Love is a treasure
Long searched for yet found buried deep inside one’s own heart

Love is a blessing
Sent from above on a dove’s wings and
Felt with every caress

Love is a song
Its melody reverberating in your soul
And heard in your loved one’s sigh

Love is a summons
From your heart to run into his arms
And feel safe and warm

Love is a request
From her soul to your heart to hold her tight
And never let go

Love is an epiphany
When all the turmoil is quieted and the clouds
Lift at the mere thought that they are near

Love is a wonder, Love is a comfort, Love is a dream come true,
Love
is a sacrifice, Love is devotion, fulfillment, endearing, thoughtful, kind, caring, peaceful, strength, honor…

Love is the two of you together at last.
