No Yesterdays is Available Now For Your Reading Enjoyment!

Gina Briganti

Natural Gifts, Book 3!


I am in danger of wearing out the ! key on my laptop, but when it has taken eight years to share this book with you, I will take the risk!

                                    Natural Gifts…where fate gets a good name.

A group of naturally gifted people have come together. One thinks he’ll surprise them with what he knows, but fate is playfully setting him up.

Fate has helped two couples to find their way to each other. To complete each other and unlock their gifts. Fate is done waiting. There’s no looking back now.

There are No Yesterdays.


I loved writing this story, meeting new characters and spending time with  the originals. We have seen a lot of these characters grow since we met them in The Dreaming back in 2010. Thank you for staying with us (you know they are like family to me, right?) throughout the three novels and two novellas.

There is more to come, as you will see at the end of the book, where I share a sneak preview of Deep In The Dreaming.


Thank you for reading and for waiting!

Recommended Books – The Winter King by C.L. Wilson (Book 1 of the Weathermages of Mystral Series)


C.L. Wilson will be at Coastal Magic Convention in February! Squeal! I heard about Coastal Magic Convention from her blog post back in July 2017. There wasn’t a moment of hesitation for me to check out all of the details. I looked up the tickets, which are still available, and started planning. The convention is in Daytona Beach, Florida from February 22-25. Our convention hotel is The Shores Resort and Spa. If you are going to be there, shout it out to me. I would love to see you there!


While we are on the subject of conventions, I’d love to hear about your experiences with them. Do you go to book conventions? Do you stay at the convention hotel? Do you stay for the whole convention? This is my first one, and I am excited!

Now, about The Winter King. Wilson is treasured for her detailed action scenes and elaborate world building, which we were introduced to in her Tairen Soul series. I definitely recommend the whole series and I hope you will share your thoughts with me when you read it (or if you already have). I love to compare notes.

There is a satisfying romance in The Winter King. The energy between Wynn and Kham zings through the page. You can feel their bond grow. There are scads and scores of details I’m leaving out that skillfully bring those feelings out. What fun would it be for me to spoil the discovery experience for you?

The lore of Mystral, the land where the weathermages live, is full and engaging. I loved the feeling that even as I read about new languages and customs, I could also admire Wilson’s skill in making them feel exotic and familiar at the same time.

There is a good dose of royal intrigue, similar to A Game of Thrones. Plenty of twists and turns to keep you flipping the pages.

The series continues in The Sea King (2017). I’m reading that now, and completely looking forward to talking about them at the convention. Hopefully Wilson will tease us with future books in the series.

Is there anything you would like to know about The Winter King that I didn’t talk about? Ask away!


Thanks for reading!

Low-carb Roasted Vegetable Snack Mix!

Would you like to grab handfuls of an addictive, savory, mouth watering snack that’s good for you? My answer is yes, and that’s why I played with my vegetables and came up with this delicious snack mix.


It started with a tomato and basil mini cheese ball recipe I made for a party. I didn’t want to put raw tomatoes in them, so I roasted some of my Thrive Life tomato dices by adding a hint of coconut oil, pink salt and Chef’s Choice seasoning. The tomatoes were luscious and my mini cheese balls were a hit.

Requests for low-carb recipes have been coming in lately, which has me looking at labels for new information. It turns out that tomatoes, zucchini and asparagus are all low in carbohydrate. I added them together, tossed them with a drizzle of coconut oil, some pink salt, Chef’s Choice and a bit of garlic…
