I found out about Carl and his book The Time Hunters just last year when he came on the forum to tell us about it. It was about time traveling and only .99 cents, so I took a chance and bought it. Wow, I was blown away by it. It is written for young adults but is enjoyed by young at heart readers like myself and his other fans. We are now waiting for the next book in the series and Carl is such a tease, giving us a few clues to where he is going with the story line. One of the nicest things about Carl is that he is so down to earth and keeps in touch with his readers.

I enjoyed the book as well and am hoping for a sequel.

He is writing the next book in the series right now, and he say's it will be out before the end of the year. He keeps in touch with us and lets us know how the book is progressing.

Hi everyone,
Carl's blog is a great place to find out about indie authors he recommends, as well as what he is up to with writing. I loved the Time Hunters trailer: http://carlashmoreauthor.blogspot.com/

Thanks again,

It looks like you could go back 50 years in time just by climbing in. That's what I call a distinguished looking ride.

LOVE the cab! But won't it look out of place in 1920's Chicago? Although I guess it is better than an ice cream truck or the VW...closer to the time period!

I am also a member of the fan club! I've read the book twice already, and can't wait for the next book.

Hi all,

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. Lisa , Alice and I have just got back from an afternoon coffee at a canal barge marina. Lavender, it would have been right up your street.

And hello to Bob :) Nice to meet you, sir.

Glad you like the cab, Petrona. It does alot of more things than just drive around, too. But that's a clue for another day :) Trust me, it's a very, very cool car.
Now, Lavender, you, of all people, should know that all time machines are fitted with a standard G6 Invisiblator :)

Heidi, big hugs for you .xxx

canal barge marina????? *makes note in notebook* That means you could be a stop on my grand tour! *makes another note* Cool!

I've been having so much fun the past few days. I now have my laptop and my desktop on the same desk. So I've been playing games on the old computer, and watching movies on the laptop! Have you seen the movie 2012? It has a Japanese Chin in it! I've watched it 3 times....just to see the Chin. I watched Tremors 1,2,3, and 4....the first was definitely the best. And last night I watched the first season of Numb3rs. I really liked that series - about two brothers, one an FBI agent, and the other a mathematical genius who helps solve FBI cases using mathematics.

This morning, I've moved the flat screen back to the bedroom. I just have one problem. This desk, although beautiful, is just a little too tall, causing fatigue in my wrists. And sitting in the computer chair is not helping my legs much. I just wish I could figure out a way to get the lounger in here....and I would have the perfect set-up! (And I would never leave my bedroom)

Hello to all new and old members!*BIG Smile and Wink*

Yippiee for the CA Fan Club! I am a member too.
Waiting for my paper back to come in so I can start reading it again and share it with my non kindle friends. ;)
Carl I am loving the black cab! I want one, very cool.

Lavendar, have you thought about gettin a laptop desk for your laptop?
I use mine all the time while reclining on my livingroom sofa. That way I am still hanging out with the hubby but I don't have to watch what he is watching if I don't like it. I love mine!

Hey, Carl got any other little tidbits for us? :-D

Hi all,

Happy Sunday to you guys. Lavender, I've not seen Numb3rs but I'm always on the lookout for new TV series boxsets, and you know American TV shows are my favourite. I've just finished series four of 'The Office, an American workplace' and I have to say (and this is a huge compliment) I think it might be even better than the original British version.

Hey, Bob. Excuse my ignorance, but what's a Motrin?

And K, here's a little tidbit. It's not a major plot clue or anything but I'm just writing a powerful scene concerning Maria (who's in floods of tears) and Becky. The reason, well, Becky is wearing something like this :

I love the hats from the '20's....what did they call them? Cloches? When I was watching the Kentucky Derby, they were interviewing some famous person, and she mentioned that word. The '20s was such a wonderful time for fashion. They threw away the corsets, bustles, long skirts, and all other restrictions, and the clothes were very loose and free flowing. It was great if you were tiny - not so great for those "Gibson Girls figures popular at the turn of the century!

I'm getting used to the desk. But I tend to slump and prop on it - not good for long-term working. And if I ever did try to write, I'd be in trouble....my carpel tunnel (and back) acts up after a while.

I cooked a Southwestern Tilapia today for lunch - it turned out pretty well. I breaded the tilapia and baked it in the oven. Then we had a black bean, corn, and salsa mixture to spread over it, with tortilla strips sprinkled on top. I was aiming for the tilapia served at Logans Roadhouse - not as good, but good in a different way.

I'm going to be getting another rescue Chin to foster. She came from a puppy mill in Arkansas, and is now in Mobile. There is a possible home available in north Georgia, but I need to vet her, and make sure that she is house-trained and leash trained first. I'll be driving partway to get her (2 1/2 hrs one way) either tomorrow, or next Saturday. There is another girl in Mobile, and she will be going to Clearwater, Florida.

Carl .. Motrin IB is a brand name, here in the states, for the ibuprofen (NSAID) pain pill. After giving High Fives to all your friends here, I would need more than just one.

Love the clothing from the 20's, nice clue Carl.

Carl Ashmore says:
Hi Johnna, glad you've found this thread. I'm using both forums now. Oh, and I'm not sure I've thanked you all enough for supporting me over the many months. It means so much . We've been together for ages now :)

Yes, Lavender, they are called Cloche hats, and trust me, Becky is not happy wearing the hat or indeed the bubble-gum pink dress, that Uncle Percy has selected for her.

Ah, Bob, I see. Thanks for Americana lesson. It's one of my fav things about the relationships I've struck up with you guys. I've found loads out about US culture.

And hi, Petrona. I love the 20's clothing too. And I bet you gals would rather like Will Shakelock in his tuxedo :)

Lavender Lib says:
Yum! I love guys in tuxedos!!! Becky needs to get into "dressing up" - I think that would be cool. Although I would not be happy in a bubble gum pink dress either.... *leans over gagging* I have always HATED pink!

Welcome Bob! *waves enthusiastically* I know what you mean about needing Motrin. My arms/shoulders are fine, but my knees are shot. Thankfully, all my arthritis seems to have settled in my knees. Usually it is hips in my family, but mine seem fine for now. (My dad has had 3 hip replacements, my uncle 3, my mom had 1 hip replaced, my grandmother had a hip replacement....)

Carl Ashmore says:
That is a lot of replacement hips, Lavender. I hope (in that area, at least) you remain unaffected.xxx

And believe me, Lavender, pink is just about Becky's least fav colour, too. :)

I'll be unveiling a little something about book 3 in the next few days :)

Posted on May 23, 2011 11:17:57 AM PDT
BOOK 3, that sounds good. Lavender,one of my sisters has arthritis thru out her whole body. Like you I only have it in my knees and am waiting to have them replaced.

Posted on May 23, 2011 4:52:25 PM PDT
Hi Carl,
Love the 20s dresses and hats, but I have to disagree with Lavender (sorry). Keep Becky the way she is, disliking "dress up" unless, of course, it is to wear something other than a dress. Maybe in TH3 they could all end up decked out as hippies? I like the fact that you let the characters have their faults (although I don't see disliking wearing dresses as a fault) which is what makes them real.
