I’ve been busy this week. In three days I’ve written over 25,000 words. One Christmas story is submitted, the other one was snatched up within a coupla hours, and the third one has to be done and turned in by September 15th. All this writing has taken a toll on my body. Bleary eyesight and elbows and shoulders that are aching more than usual. But, it’s what I do, what I love, so I pop the aspirin and put up with it.
The hummingbirds are slowly leaving to fly back to
America. There’s only about half a dozen left here at my feeders.
I’ll miss my girls (I’ve only seen one male this summer). They’re constant,
peaceful entertainment and they’re so accustomed to my presence that they fly
up to me and say “hello” from time to time.
Voodoo, the new kitty addition to the fam, killed her first mouse in the laundry room this morning. However, I did not have my glasses on when I walked in there to fill her food bowl, so when I turned on the light and found the dead rodent an inch from my toes, I did a jig and shouted “hallelujah!” Well, if I’m honest it was a more, uh, colorful version. Ahem.
Anyway, September starts tomorrow. All the kids are back in school, the days are quiet, and I sit and listen to crickets chirp all day. Bright leaves and cooler days are right around the corner, my friends.
Yeah, this is a rather laid back post for me, isn’t it? All I can say is that after the mental work I’ve done this week, my brain is sloshing around in my skull, lol. It’s mush!
With that said, I have another new release, Twisted Paths. It’s around 40 pages, and it’s three unique stores that follow the premise of twisted paths. Dead is Dead is a psychological thriller that will shock you. The Magic of Stolen Kisses is a two-part tale, one from the husband’s pov and one from the wife’s, but it involves some ancient history that tears one’s world apart and redeems the other—oh, and this story has extreme sexual content in it for the faint of heart. Lastly, in Without Camouflage, a woman running from her abusive spouse finds a coupla good friends from two entirely different realms.
Also, the publisher has the book 30% off for the next two or three days.
