Cutting Cords

Jo Ramsey is blogging with me today at Downtown YA about her new novel, Cutting Cords. If you have an opportunity, please drop by and see hey to Jo.

When Shanna’s father moves out, leaving Shanna alone with her mother, her home life goes from bad to worse. At least she has Jonah to remind her that she deserves a good life, even if she doesn’t always believe him. Stressed about her parents’ separation and worried about what it will mean for her, Shanna is glad for the distraction of her friend Tammi’s request for information about guides. Although Shanna is still learning, she knows how to answer Tammi’s questions. The problem is, the entity Tammi is asking about isn’t really a guide. It’s a dead spirit who wants to take over Tammi’s life. And Shanna discovers that another entity, one with the power to destroy our universe, wants to use Tammi as well. Guided by Jonah and Tethys, and helped by another being of light, Shanna must send the dead spirit to the afterlife before it’s too late—for Tammi and for the entire Universe.



Oh yes...and I'm at the Book Boost today.

Are you about flowered out?

More orchids. All of these pictures were taken inside. The conservatory is huge.

Just got back from Lincoln Lawyer. Thumbs up.

I'll be blogging tomorrow at Night Writers on Declawing.

Pink Roses


A profusion of pink roses bending ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring. ~The Collected Later Poems of William Carlos Williams

Akasha Revisited


Seated in the clouds, the council of nine cats, along with the little tabby called Great Mother, stared at a spot on earth, their expressions grave. As they watched, the waters rose and the wind battered everything in its way. The little gray tabby placed her paw on the council elder’s shoulder and cried out in distress, “Oh, no, Ramses, not the kittens.”

He cut his gaze toward Great Mother and put his paw around her. “My dear, we must be prepared for the worst. Let’s go to the bridge.”

Orchids


We just got back from a visit to the baby girl. Besides getting to see my lovely daughter, I got to visit Longwood Gardens outside of Philadelphia. Have you ever been there? If not I highly recommend it. I've been to a lot of gardens, but this was the best I've ever seen. While we were there they had an orchid exhibit going on. I have never seen so many of these beautiful exotics or such a wide selection.

Ceiling Fans How Exciting

We went out and bought a ceiling fan.
You're probably thinking so? Well, its not so much that we bought one as why we bought one. I was making the bed and the sucker fell on me. No not the bed, the ceiling fan. I managed to jump out of the way and just got a few scratches. Lucky, for me I was paying attention to business and not mulling over a story.
Well, that was my excitement for the week. I would rather be reporting that I won the lottery or was on the New York Times Best Seller list. Oh well, maybe next time.

Speaking of Duct Tape



I blush to admit I've got some wrapped around my printer and battery operated toothbrush... What are you using it to hold together?

Duct Tape
