Welcome to the Infirmary

Today is the release party for my sequel to Reluctant Guardian, The Elementalist! I am excited. I really am, but it's this debilitating cold I've contracted that makes it look otherwise. It's after nine in the morning and I'm still in my pajamas in bed, watching Captain Kirk act in a hotel commercial. There has got to be something better to watch  than this.

The alternative is to get into a nice, hot bath with a good book. That could clear my sinuses, but then I'd just lie there thinking of all the things I should be doing, like laundry, dishes, writing, ordering prizes for the release party, caring for my sick child. I think I'll just take a bath. The bathtub is truly a love/hate relationship, but he's loyal and always there, waiting. He's sounding better and better.

My 10 year old is home sick today too, but he has different symptoms, like puking his brains out. I'm grateful today that I'm not doing that.

So, now I will force myself into my loyal bathtub, I will read a book while I think of all the things I need to do, and then I will get out, sit by my window and watch the miracle of a winter wonderland in March... the first real snowstorm (for us) of the season.

Brevity is the the Soul of Wit

Brevity is the soul of wit? That explains a lot. My problem is I talk too much. I have always envied those who have a quick mind and a sharp wit. I want to be them when I grow up. I want to be able to write a turn of phrase to make butter melt. Alas, I don't think I fell into that talent pool. I try. I truly do, but when it comes to a great one-liner I have to think, and think, and think. I'm SLOW.

It doesn't seem to matter how hard I try, my old, Lyme brain has never recovered from its three years of non-use. Even though I have been Lyme free for almost a year now, I am still forgetful, ditzy, and I ramble on... and on... and on. My husbands does this quirky finger-across-the-throat-thing to let me know I've belabored a point for long enough. It's my signal to give it up.

I'm long winded. That is a talent I've had for years. I could talk, and talk, and talk some more. Give me a subject and I'll make it beg for death before I'm finished. THAT, I'm good at. Brevity? Nope. But I believe in miracles, and I have hope for the future. Here is a blog that I intend to study until my brain hurts. If you're curious and want to obtain a sharper wit, you might want to check it out too.

READ THE FIRST BOOK TODAY! 

(FREE for Kindle Unlimited Customers!) 




Guarding Brecken Shaefer—a dark and dangerous rebel—is harder than it looks. 

Death was nothing like sixteen-year-old Alisa Callahan thought it would be. Resting on pink, fluffy clouds for eternity with her gram and best friend sounded like a dream come true. After all, enduring one torturous experience after another in her short life deserved some kind of reward, right? Unfortunately, eternal rewards aren't given out so freely when you take your own life.

Required to pay the debt for committing suicide, Alisa must become a guardian. It sounds easy enough, but not when the boy she is forced to protect has a dangerous secret and wants absolutely nothing to do with her.

Brecken Shaefer isn't any normal teenager. He has special gifts that are sure to make Alisa's afterlife miserable. When feelings develop between them, everything spins out of control. Not only must Alisa face her own demons— but to protect Brecken, she must face an evil so heinous that it threatens to destroy their souls completely.

Alisa is tired of hiding from her past. When the easiest thing to do is run, can Brecken give her the strength to stay?
