Showcasing Author Clients


It has always been my belief that hard work shouldn’t go to waste. I also believe that if something is not a good fit in one place, there’s always a place for it elsewhere. The following showcase was deemed incorrect for a magazine I submitted to, so I’m sharing it here with you. Greetings to … Continue reading Showcasing Author Clients

Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.

I hope all of you are well…and had a good week.

On the home front 4 tons of stone and 16 tons of topsoil are now waiting for new lawn to be laid and after spreading and raking all of the materials my husband is looking decidely lean and mean.. beats running a marathon. He is supplied with regular infusions of liquid and food and has gone through several audio books in the process.

I have been working on a few projects and begun a declutter process starting with my clothes, handbags and shoes. Most of which have not seen the light of day since we moved in… which implies that I don’t really need them… do I???? I have to bite the bullet and pass them along to someone else who might enjoy using…

hurricane, a children’s book


Wanda Luthman's Children's Books

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Wanda Luthman’s Book Blog!

Today, I have an unique children’s book about a topic that is quite near and dear to my heart, Hurricane. You see, I live in Florida and every year, hurricanes whip up in the Atlantic and threaten our (and other states’ and country’s coastline). It can be quite frightening. Indeed, one year, our house flooded. That was in 2005 with the Hurricane named Wilma. The very last one of the year. Just when we thought we were in the clear and then we just got more rain than the little pond behind our house could handle and in the water came. It was a mess and took months and a lot of money to clean up our home and replace furniture, cabinets, and other items lost to water damange.

So, with no further ado, let me share with you…

Smorgasbord Health Column – Women’s Health Month – Breast Cancer by Sally Cronin


Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Having spent time on some of the more common health issues we might suffer from, over the next few weeks, I am going to focus first on women’s health first posted in 2015 and a number of times since as I consider it to be an important issue.. It will be followed by men’s health.

Apart from looking at specific problems faced by women, I will also be sharing some guest posts from writers who have experienced health issues associated with the reproductive system or have worked with the medical field associated with women’s health.

These systems generally conform to a set pattern of development, however there are times when nature has its own agenda, resulting in changes that we are now embracing more fully. I am going to begin with the female reproductive system, how it works and links to posts that I have written on related diseases such…

Smorgasbord Cafe and Bookstore Update #Reviews – #Fantasy Barbara Spencer, #Fantasy P.L. Stuart, #Poetry Annette Rochelle Aben


What wonderfully written book reviews.

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Welcome to the Wednesday edition of the Cafe and Bookstore with recent reviews for authors on the shelves.

The first author with a recent review is Barbara Spencer for The Drumming of Heels ((Trilogy, The Children of Zeus Book 3)

About the Book

1944 approaches and Europe is haemorrhaging under the yoke of their oppressors. Of the three children who survived the massacre, only two remain. Yöst has given his own life to rescue Rico, the boy he loved, and Maestro the musician and, in so doing, has bought himself immortality as people tell stories of the angel who gave them hope. Now it is up to Zande and Tatania to face both the majesty and complexity of the carinatae life – or will they renege, as did Albert Meijer, and choose a human life instead?

A recent review for the book

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Memories, Music and Movies – 1963 Part One – Glen Miller and Lawrence of Arabia


Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

I cannot remember a time when music and movies where not a part of my life.

Me (far right) with some of my friends I had left behind in Malta in 1961

The Memories

By the time I was ten years old I had lived in Sri Lanka (then Ceylon) and Malta, the family joining my father, who was in the Royal Navy, on his overseas postings.

We had been home for just over two years in Portsmouth where I attended a local Primary School and enjoyed living next to the seaside. I seem to remember that turning ten was a big deal and there was quite a bit of discussion about my future schooling as my father had been posted to Cape Town in South Africa. My brother being four years younger than I was would be going to a private school, but as I was due to move…

#Baking #Biscuits #Cookies

Retired? No one told me!

Coconut Biscuits

I don’t make biscuits very often…I love a homemade cookie/biscuit far more than my waistline does…over the last 18 months I have not walked as much and the pounds have crept on…as I am very close to my 70th birthday…yikes…the motivation to get those pounds off has increased.

I have started walking again however because my feet have gotten soft I gained a glorious blister the other day although I did push it and walked further than I should have… however as it was my first week back on the exercise circuit  I know it was stupid of me..

.I am on week 2 of Sally’s…Smorgasbord Magazine… 6 weeks glycemic plan… it’s going well and I am sticking to low glycemic foods plus staying within the boundaries of medium rated glycemic foods and have totally eliminated the high glycemic foods…maybe I will have one cookie as…
