It’s my first time online and that’s because I had to do school with the new Kindergartener and 6th Grader. All done for the day, so now it’s time to settle them down for a bit of quiet time and get Riley to cooperate for a bit. I hope YOUR Monday is treating you well. Find something to smile at today – or someone. :)

KERRY-ANNE, A Station Series Novelette
Kerry-Anne is the third and final (for this summer, anyway) Station Series novelette, and now you get to see her cover!
You’ll get to read more about her past and how she came to arrive at the Station, just like Mallory and Niles. Read on for an excerpt…
“Some people think that when a loved one is in a coma, you should talk to them and touch them, so as to let them know you are there. This way the person doesn’t feel alone. They fight to come back – back from death. But no one really gets what it’s like. Being stuck in the middle of where you were and where you’re going – it’s not a choice the person can make. I know this now, because today I realized that the hazy memory fog I’ve been trapped in is a coma. As the Doctor stood over me, explaining to my parents what their choices were, I heard it all.
No chance of recovery, he’d said. Brain-dead. Gone.
But the Doctor was wrong. I’m still here – trapped. Screaming. Crying. Hurting. But they can’t hear me. They can’t feel me. Those experts have it all backwards – it’s me who needs to talk to them, to touch them, to let them know I’m here. But I can’t. Even if I was awake, I know my fingers are gone. And my tongue. The flames melted half my flesh away. I know my brain can’t work anymore – the connections that used to fire from one cell to the other are frozen in place – but I’m still here. Like my soul is stuck in time, waiting for permission to move on. I guess that means they’ll have to unplug me…”

COMING SOON to Amazon
A short and sweet tip for this week – and it’s all about the music! Most of us like music, and if you don’t…well…I’ve got nothing. But if you absolutely MUST have tunes in your life, then you probably write with music playing in the background at least every now and then.
But what do you listen to?
- Whatever you’re in the mood for?
- Whatever happens to be on the radio?
- Whatever your story calls for, genre-speaking?
Well, why not all of the above? If you don’t already create a playlist for each story, try doing this next time. Customize that playlist to be what the story calls for AND what you enjoy listening to. And shake up your playlist for each book. You can order your playlist chronologically based on what happens in each chapter of your book. I’ve done this and it’s an awesome way to go, especially at the end. But you can also put your playlist on shuffle if you aren’t particular. The point is – rotate through them, or use a different playlist for each story and the songs won’t get boring, and neither will your mood. ;)
Take a peek below to see what one of my writing Playlist’s looks like, and how MANY I happen to have. lol
Happy Writing, everyone!
