Caves, Cannons, and Crinolines

YA Historical Novel

I know some parts of the country still have winder, but here in North Texas today was the typical southerly winds and sunny skies. Temperature in the 70s, a nice change from the freezing days of winter.

This is a picture from the past. We usually have bluebonnets and paintbrush, but have no wildflowers or butterflies so far this year. Many of our trees have died. We need rain desperately.
So how was your first day of spring?
Update on my MG contemporary story, STAR OF THE TEAM
Still waiting.

A girl.

A dream.

An accident.

A dream shattered.

Eleven-year-old Kate Taylor dreams of being the star of her basketball team, Angels. When Kate’s tooth is knocked out at one of the games, and her mother, who is also her coach, says she can’t play until the tooth the dentist replants heals, Kate’s dreams are in jeopardy. Add Emily, the new girl at school who claims she’s the best, and Kate faces a challenge to prove that she is the star.

Will Kate succeed? Or will Emily ruin Kate’s plans?

    Hi, Kourtney. Thanks for stopping by. This blog is WordPress. I use it mostly to showcase my work. I get a lot of spam but just delete it. My other blog is on
    On it I post reviews, interviews and other things of interest to writers and friends. Face Book is also a good place, depending on what you want to do. Hope this helps a little. :)

    Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll
    try to get the hang of it!

    Haha! You noticed. I’ve scratched my head over some of the comments. When I have time I hope to check the source. You have a very good idea. I will add links to my other sites. Now why didn’t I think of that? This blog needs updating, so will add them this week. Thanks for your fun comment. Nice to “meet” you.


    January 17, 2014 at 10:56 pm

    I don’t create many remarks, however I read a few
    of the comments on this page Beverly Stowe McClure | Author
    of Stories forr Children and Teens. I actually do
    have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be simply me or
    do some of these comments look like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online
    sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you make a list of the complete urls of you shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page
    or twitter feed?

    The main reason was to stay, as near to the sea as possible, though maps could be so confusing. It contains no eggs, no sugar, and no butter and is versatile enough to let you add more, should your taste vary.

    Will talk to you later. :)

    Thank you, beautiful mom, for your response. I have just sent you a personal email.

    Blessings to you and your family,

    July 29, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    Hello Hamza. Thank you for your kind thoughts. I’m well, yes. I wrote “Traveler,” and I’m so happy the story touched you. A writer loves to hear that she’s made a difference in someone’s life with her work. You’ll be happy to know that Traveler is still alive and well. He lives with our son now and has a very happy home. Thanks again for letting me know your feelings. I really appreciate your comment. Keep in touch. I have another Chicken Soup story coming out in the October book “Messages from Heaven.” I hope you’ll read that story as well.

    So nice to hear from you.

    Hello Ms. Beverly,

    I hope you are doing well. I am not sure whether or not you are the one who wrote the wonderful story “Traveler,” from the ‘What I Learned From The Dog’ book of the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series. The story, however, touched my heart and soothed my soul in a very positive way. Please let me know if you are the same Beverly McClure who wrote the story.

    Best regards,
    Hamza Hassan

    Hi Hot Picture…
    Sorry you’re having trouble with the comments. Here’s what I found on WordPress that should help you stop following the comments.

    “Managing Post / Comment Notification

    If you want to stop receiving comment notification or start receiving notification on all comments on a particular blog, click the “Subscription Options” link at the bottom of the notification email. You can also use the link shown below.” (The link is on your comment notification.)

    Have a nice evening.

    When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.

    There has to be an easy method you can remove me
    from that service? Many thanks!

    Hi, Lisa,
    I visited your site. You have a great idea there. Tried to leave a message but it wouldn’t go through so I’m posting it here.

    Thanks for your message on my site. I’m late on replying.

    This sounds like a wonderful program. I imagine, though, I’d have to check with my publishers before allowing my books to be sold here, since they’d be supplying them. How does this work?

    Thanks and good luck to you.
