Preparing to Celebrate

How does one prepare to celebrate? In some ways it depends on what you are celebrating. It does not have to be a special occasion, it can be just because you are happy or you found an entertaining book. Of course finding an entertaining book is as easy as clicking through to Amazon and getting a free Kindle download. You are welcome to do just that: Click here. Of course the multiple award winning scifi/fantasy, The Blood: The Stone’s Blade, Book One, is available as a free download through August 15, 2016 in celebration of the upcoming publication of the second book in the series, The Balance: The Stone’s Blade, Book Two.

Scheduling this free download is the second step in celebrating. The first step was exhorting followers, friends, acquaintances, even family to pass on the word about the upcoming publication and that they should read or reread their copies of the first book. I have heard from several early purchasers of The Blood that they have reread it and that they found clues to the identity of The Balance and they are eager to find out if they are correct and how Ani and Renloret will find out who it is and then what happens next. They are pestering me with questions about the survival of the Anyala Stone and what is going to happen to Ani if it dies.

They will “read all about it” in the second book – well, at least most of it. I am already working on the third book of the series. And I guess that is another reason to celebrate.

Simply, I am passionate about writing and dancing. I also love reading, quilting and hunting. I have written stories since childhood. I have a degree in English, taught in a parochial school, substituted K-12, raised three daughters, coached and refereed youth soccer, square danced since I was seven, and created and hand quilted award winning quilts. When not writing I assist my husband teach square dancing 3-4 times a week, co-coach an historical dance exhibition team and I hunt with my family and friends to fill the freezer. I have two award winning novels. "The Blood,"published in May 2014 is a multiple award winner, placing third in both the Science Fiction and Fantasy categories of the 2014 EVVY Awards, from Colorado Independent Publishers Association and received a four star review by Foreword Clarion Review in May 2016.
