Busy Time of Year for All

It's been a long time since I've been on here! Spring was too crazy for words and now that it's summer... unrelenting busy-ness! I love it, though.

The grandkids have visited a few times, and in July we will camp with 6 of the grandies, and a son and daughter in law. With six I really need reinforcements.

Needless to say, my personal writing has been put on hold for a while. I lost momentum when the external drive containing all my editing work and my own MS fell to the floor and just couldn't get up. 

I'm booked through the year for edits, though I usually am willing to squeeze in when I can... that means no days off for a few weeks, but it also means I don't clean house either... I love a clean house, hate cleaning it!

I apologize to all the authors I've not taken the time to blog about. I will fix that as often as I can!

Also, I'm so excited for Jane Taylor, an author I edited for a few years. I just saw that she had a television interview on Page One with Zita Christian. I love Taylor's books, and am so proud to say I've worked for her. 

For all of you, I hope your summer is busy, fun, and productive. I am grateful to all authors; books will always be my passion.

The Cull By Donna Shelton and Janet Bessey

Product Details Book blurb:

I often reflect on the way this disaster came to be. How could a democratic society allow a duly elected government to label some human beings as human-animal, and demote them to a level of no more importance than any other head of farm stock; subject by law to compassionate care, market sale, or humane CULL, as deemed an appropriate business decision by the government itself or the corporations who owned them.
However, we all stood mutely by when in 2022, the “human-animal redefinition law” passed the world Congress.  The classification of people as human-animal chattel had been a long, slow process, filled, in the beginning, with many protests and arguments. The whole classification process was innocuous enough to start—a mandated micro-chip implanted in all humans—this was intended to allow the government to be sure money and food was allotted in the correct amounts. Touted as a lifesaving tool, it also allowed tracking and immediate identification. This implant opened the door for a much darker usage. At first, this set well with many families who had non-productive family members and friends who would not, or could not provide for themselves. Letting them live in their home and having food and care paid for by the government was a huge relief. Since no criteria had yet been published concerning the level of care for “human-animal chattel', unsuspecting family members naively believed it would be sufficient and welcomed the strays back into their arms as soon as they were safely on the government dole. Looking back, it would appear that some merit had now been added to the comments made by a well-known intellectual shortly after the 2010 bill passed, “due to a lack of transparency and the stupidity of the American voter."

Meanwhile, happy, busy people quickly forgot all about that awful “label.” They were soon lulled back into the false sense of security that living in a three hundred year old democracy can so comfortably provide.

Advertising the book I co-authored! What an experience this has been. I had no idea what work was involved for the self-published authors. I salute you all!

Work in Progress

It was quite a while ago that I lost all the links to the books I've edited. The page was to highlight what work I've done, but it was also for my personal feeling of accomplishment.

Since then, I've listed the authors with whom I've worked, and am in the process of linking their Amazon pages. I don't think the page looks as cool, but I do think it advertises the authors in a better way.

I'll have to figure out a way to jazz the page so that it's fun. Any ideas are welcome!

OMG I messed up! Big time!

So, somehow, I managed to delete my edited works page, along with the entire list and pictures of the books. The page is gone. I'm so sad... Not sure what to do about this. Any ideas?

Witch Bound: Heir Hunters, book 2

Product DetailsThere are enough side plots to keep everyone happy in this, the second of the Heir Hunters Series. Sometimes the second in a series can seem a bit disjointed from the first. Not so, with this book. It is so well written that it appears seamless in the telling. You will not be disappointed when reading Witch Blood... More, please‼

Blood Hunted-Heir Hunters Series by K.E. O’Connor

Product DetailsThis is an original story that I found fascinating! I like the style, the descriptions, the action... just everything about it.I’m very happy it’s a series... Highly recommended reading.

Loving the Enemy by Cate Dean

Product DetailsThis book was wonderful. The character development was such that you felt their anguish, and their love. Ms. Dean developed the plot well, built her story, and made it possible to feel involved with the happenings. The love scenes were steamy without being overdone. This was definitely not a cliff hanger, for which I am extremely grateful, but the promise of more to come, again for which I am extremely grateful! Thank you Ms. Dean, for sharing your wonderful world-building with us.
