Anywho, if you’d like to get me a birthday present, you could pledge for the Kickstarter campaign! wink, wink, hint, hint…. seriously though, there are only 6 days left in the campaign and I still need $2,205 in order to make it successful! Please help! After all…it is my birthday…true story.
I love this movie!
I’ll even make it easier for you. Click HERE for the direct link to the campaign. Thanks!
YOU TO PLEDGE!!! ;D
Take Care and God Bless,
With 17 days left in campaign, although pledges may be slow going… I assure you the series is not! I have been working as much as time allows on finishing the second book in the TEAS series, now titled: Pieces. Before editing and cuts, I have 17 chapters and 170 pages written. Huh… that’s interesting… 170 pages, 17 chapters, and 17 days to go. Is this a good thing?
I will be interviewed by a local newspaper this week. Although they cannot promote my campaign without paid advertisement, they are willing to write a story on my book. I have to say, I’m pretty nervous and excited all at once! Hopefully this will help spread the word a little more.
We will continue to keep a positive outlook to this campaign and try to encourage others to take a look. We are updating all of our websites like mad, hoping the right people will come along and the word will start to spread. For now, take care!
By the way, click here for a link to the post about Pieces if you’d like to learn more.

First of all, the good news is the two suspects involved in the Boston Marathon bombing have been caught! One is in the hospital and the other was shot and killed. At least the authorities caught them in good timing and they still have one to question! This just proves, you don’t mess with America!
Now, back to business… as the title suggests, I am on a searching frenzy! The last few days were spent searching online for a futon for my teenage son. Funny thing, he still sleeps in the same bad he had since he was about six of seven! lol I know it sounds horrible, but really it’s not. The bed has held up rather well and there are no bars on any side so he can hang off and stretch out! Hehehehe He’s not one to be picky and he never really wanted a new bed… until recently. It has finally started to become uncomfortable for him and so a brand new futon is on the way… more his size!
In the same time I have been searching for the futon, I have also been searching for a new coffee maker (ours is dying), a new mouse pad (it is dead), and my husband was searching for a new bike (it’s beyond uncomfortable). Also, we are still searching for potential buyers for our house, new carpet and flooring to add value (and hopefully sell), and a new house to move into. On top of that I was searching for directions to a service recognition dinner for serving 10 years at job I don’t like, all while searching for a job I would. Ahhhh, irony! Don’t get me wrong, I’m thankful to have a job and some days it’s not so bad…. but lately the bad outweigh the good and I’ve been ready to move on from this job for about six to seven years now. And just yesterday, my son told me the drumline needs a faster cadence for their upcoming parade… sooooo, I’m searching cadences now too! Aaaaaahhhhhhhh!
I’m also searching for another puppy! (Just wanted to see if my husband reads this, tee-hee!) Seriously though, I’ve had puppy fever for about six months now! Wa’ za’ puppies!
Huh, I just noticed a lot of this revolves around six and seven. What does that mean? *stares out the wonder and thinks* Just kidding!
Anywho…. of all the searching I am doing lately, one thing remains at the top of my list! Right now it is number one, the most important, the mother of all searches, the.. okay I’m done. Out of all seriousness, I’m still searching for as many supporters I can find to help back my book tour. I know you are probably getting tired of hearing me say it (or reading it rather) but I’m not going to stop until it’s over… sorry. Please don’t just scroll by this post or hit like just because… especially if you know someone who loves to read Sci/fi – fantasy novels! Even if you don’t want to back the project yourself, you can pass on the message to those who might. I’m looking for my true supporters of my writing… I know you’re out there somewhere! There are only18 days left in the Kickstarter campaign and I still only have the same three backers. My total so far is $145… I need $2,355 more to make my goal. That’s a lot of money in a short amount of time, so PLEASE… if you wish to help support my writing and the TEAS series, spread the word, make a pledge and I promise you… it will NOT go unnoticed! Once again, here is the link… TEAS BOOK TOUR
Thank you and God Bless,
It’s been nearly 12 yrs. now since the horrific Sept. 11th terrorist attacks and sickening things continue to take place. I remember rearranging my house when I got the call from my sister to turn on the news. I’ll never forget the horrible scenes that were taking place that day. I also remember how we all band together, supporting one another and being kind to each other. What happened?!
I’ve been searching the internet, looking for more information about the Boston Marathon bombings and all I find is people bashing the president and each other! Really?! Has it really come to this?! What ever happened to humanity and thoughtfulness and caring about others… lending support when it is needed most?! I can’t believe all morals have been lost among these people! I just don’t understand.
I will admit, I rarely used the internet back in 2001… so if it was the same bashing nonsense then, I missed it. Oh, darn! I saw more good in people than the childish behavior of blame and ridicule. I think the internet makes it easier for people to behave this way because they don’t have to face the people they are bashing. It must make them feel more powerful to type hateful words to each other over the computer than stand in front of a crowd and face reality.
From the 9/11 attacks to school shootings to bombs and unfortunately so much more… I for one am tired of it! Instead of drowning myself in a sea of sorrow searching for more disgusting news and reading more disturbing posts… I’m going to do what I think matters the most right now. There have been countless lives lost throughout all these senseless acts of violence, the latest being two people form the Boston bombings… not sure if it is correct, but news trends an eight year old was of the two killed. So for the next two days, I’m going to vow to stay off the internet in honor and remembrance of these two victims.
To me, avoiding the internet means avoiding all the negativity and hatred which is not what this world needs right now! Instead, the focus will be on the victims who have lost their lives today and over the years past. A mind clear of negativity will be able to rightfully send thoughtful prayers to those who need it most.
I have been pushing my Kickstarter campaign a lot lately, because I would like to meet my goal. However, much more important things are on the rise right now. I feel everyone should step away from the internet in memory of all the victims throughout these past 12yrs. Take the time to clear your thoughts from all the hustle and bustle of the internet world, all the chaos that we have been drawn into, and really concentrate on what we all need… prayer! I realize stepping away from my campaign for two days may hurt my chances at reaching my goal, but I don’t care. If it does, then so be it. To me, this is more important. The world needs a “world-wide” prayer before we all destroy ourselves through these senseless acts of violence and hatred. Please join me. This will begin at 2:50 a.m. EST on April 16th and end 2:50 a.m. on April 18th. 2:50 p.m. was around the time the first bomb went off.
With greatest sincerity,
Two people were killed and 73 hurt when two bombs exploded near the finish line at the Boston Marathon today. Two other devices were found but dismantled before they could detonate. No suspect has been taken into custody and investigators are still looking into the situation. This is a sickening event to occur in the long string of horrible violence. I send all my thoughts and prayers not only to Boston, but to the world! May God be with us all!
Although it may sound like a lot of time, 23 days left in the Kickstarter campaign for the TEAS book tour is time running away from me! I received a few pledges so far (many, many thanks to those supporters) but I have a long way to go before reaching my goal! PLEASE help this self-published author achieve her dream of sharing her stories with the world and inspiring others!
Even if you don’t want to pledge anything, you can still help by directing those who love books to the Kickstarter campaign. Click here for an easy link. And remember, anyone who pledges (if I meet my goal) will get cool
mentos…the fresh maker… ahem, mementos like a signed copy of the paperback, limited edition hard cover, of course the e-Book, bookmarks, TEASshirts..hehehe, and so on. You can even pledge for a preorder, signed copy of Pieces (the second book of the series due to be released this fall) and be the first to get your hands on it!
Regardless of what you choose to do, your support is greatly appreciated and it will not go unnoticed!!!! Thank you soooo much and have a great day!
Take Care and God Bless,
With only 25 days to go, I’m looking for anyone and everyone who loves to read Sci/Fi – Fantasy novels! I’m running a Kickstarter campaign for my novel series titled: Through the Eyes of A Stranger. I’m trying to raise $2,500 in order take my first book (Beyond This Life) on a book signing tour. I need to be able to purchase a print run of 100 or more books plus promotional items such as bookmarks. Also, with the Kickstarter campaign, if you pledge an amount to help support the series, you can choose prizes as well!
To learn more about the series, check out the Kickstarter – Through the Eyes of A Stranger – The Book Tour by clicking here. You would not only be helping a Michigan local, self-published author promote her book, but you would also help her achieve her dream to help inspire others through the love of writing!
Thank you for your time and consideration,
It is official! The title to the second book in the Through the Eyes of A Stranger series is – Pieces!
I really find it fitting to the story, just as Beyond This Life fits the first. In the first book you learn about the Wallace family and a Phoenix prophecy that leads Gabriel to speak of other worlds. Throughout the story, Gabriel is lead through the magical and mysterious world of Pulse and learns of his purpose beyond the life that he knew. In the end, the characters involved also discover there is more that awaits them beyond the life they knew.
As the series continues, you meet new characters and learn of new worlds. All the while you and the characters are puzzling out the events unfolding. Also you both discover there are many pieces missing to complete the prophecy of the Phoenix. The action and danger becomes more intense as the characters fight their way through the darkness consuming their worlds, and each other.
One more thing, as a bonus, you will find yourself trying to figure out who some of these characters really are. Some will have other aliases while others will attempt to keep their past from being revealed. Throughout the series, you will learn who they really are and their reasoning’s for such secrecy, but I cannot tell you when. Pieces will give you the opportunity to try and figure it out before it is revealed! Pieces is due to be released this fall. Make sure you get a copy of Beyond This Life before then… so you will be ready to put together the pieces!
And remember, if you want to help support the TEAS series, go to the Kickstarter campaign and pledge your amount today! You will get cool mementos and help support and promote the series by allowing me to take the book on tour and help spread the word! You can also help spread the word too! Tell everyone you know and have them tell everyone they know! Direct them to the campaign and make a pledge for the items you want! You could even get a copy of Beyond This Life (e-Book) PLUS be one of the first to get your hands on Pieces (paperback) with the pre-order pledge for only $18!
Thank you and Take Care,
