Thank you and Haunted Bedtime Stories news.

I have a busy week ahead of me. You wont see me for a few days I am to have surgery on my foot. It's badly needed. My fun crazy friends suggested I tweet while on pain killers. No not a good idea! I would be swearing at the telly or something. I will be fine, you just can't kill evil. So this is for all of you thank you for #MM #WW which is writers Wednesday, wine Wednesday or Woof Wednesday take your pick. I hope to be back by #FF if not I am sorry. I will miss having coffee in the morning with you. Also Thank you so much for all the well wishes makes me so happy I have so many kind friends.
At last the next book has a title it is 'Haunted Bedtime Stories' It will have 5 to 6 short stories and most are ghosts. I still have a bit of work to do on it. Its at the editors now so far I hear good things about it. I hope you will like it. The few who have read Haunted Bedtime Stories love it. There is a bit of fun in it as well. Every great horror writer I have met has had a great sense of humor. Check out Jack Ketchum or Stephen King videos.
As you know I live in Arizona and we have so many fires going on. So many people and pets have been dislocated. Sadly many have lost their homes. If you want to help Please do make a donation to  They do great work and need anything you can give. Money helps them they can use it to do so much. Please RT.
Again thank you so much for your support. I will see you soon. So now is time for me to be #amwriting. What are you reading this summer?

Fathers Day

This is Father's Day weekend. Most know that, some have Dads and some not. Dads are not always men some are women who are both Mum and Dad. Who ever Dad is in your life tell him/her thank you for caring and being there. Even if he/she doesn't wish a big fuss just say I love you.
Here in Arizona, most of the state is on fire. I live between fires and can smell the smoke and see it. Many have had to leave their homes not knowing what will become of house they call home. I hope you will pray for them and their pets. It is very dry here if you live here please be careful with BBQ's, camp fires, fireworks and no cigarettes butts out the car windows.
I want to thank you all for following and well wishes. Also thank you for buying my book. I am working hard on the short stories book. It is being edited now. I will let you know when it is coming out.
So summer reading, how about passing on your favorite Independent writers site or Amazon link. Support each other and pass on the links. Kindness never hurts and they need the support as much as you.
If you are new to following me say hello. I will be spending the summer relaxing from surgery. I hope to get loads of writing done. Here is the link to a new friends books Paranormal Urban Fantasy stories. Also a bit of fun link to of mine. What are you reading?

Animals and writing

I don't rant very often but I have today. It is wrong on so many levels to harm, kill and dump an animal. So I had a good rant after I tried for days to get that poor dog taken off the side of the road. I know the fires here in Arizona are important. I can smell the smoke. Animals are too.
The last few weeks I have been thinking what can I do to help animal charities, I know that are legit. So here goes. How many writers I know would take just 1 day a month and give half or all their profits? Deposit that amount in a papal account, that only a charity can get? Just once, not every month.  This is only one idea I had about helping animals. I would love to do that for the entire month of July. Please think about. If you want to, let me know. Kindness goes a long way.
Oh, if this bothers you I care so much about animals I don't give a damn. I don't feel strong about politics they all lie. Animals always love you. When you walk in the house they greet you with love.
I have 3 stories at the editors for the next book. I will have the forth by the end of the week.
So I have a very busy week ahead. I do want to thank Leland and Draven guys you're very kind. Also the girls at pub-met for all you support and love. You all keep me going and remind me how important my craziness is.
Princess says Yes she is crazy old lady. Thank you all for your support and kindness. Hug your pet.
Check out this book too It's a new friend of mines book from the UK. Joseph V. Sultana. Tell me what you think of it, better yet tell him.
Princess and I are reading The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. What book or story are you reading to your pet?
