I would hire people to do all my work for me and I could just sit back and…write. Because I’m not…I have to periodically spend some time working on tons of other stuff–like updating my signature line with my latest book covers. I need to do that with my website too. Etc, etc, etc. Did you ever watch “The King and I?” Etc. I loved that line of his…
But really, I love working on all aspects of everything, just need more time. I changed out the cover on Ghostly Liaisons, a teen book I wrote about an area that I lived in Florida.
When I was a kid, I read all kinds of ghost stories, mysteries, true stories, folktales from around the world, and all kinds of other stories. Florida is known as the Sunshine State for a reason, yet we would have violent storms and my dad worked graveyard shift at the space center and we watched scary movies with mother and our toy poodle. We lived across the street from a jungle-like area full of swamps and my sister and I would explore it as adventurers where there were dangers untold–and real ones too–rattlesnakes, water moccasins and alligators. The perfect place to set a teen psychic ghost story.
Emily Rundle’s curious nature causes her big problems when she moves with her family to Florida. First of all, she’s different. Really different. Then the nightmares begin. The kind she can’t escape. Somehow she has to unravel the mystery of the ghosts who plague her before it’s too late.Michael Shipley just moved to town, too, and realizes at once Emily is trouble with a big T. If he becomes involved with her, his life will change forever. Premonitions he has that Emily’s life will be in danger forces him to make a stand to protect the girl who’s gifted with extraordinary abilities like him. They instantly bond as the two weirdest kids in school.
Both Michael and Emily have past histories, painful memories they’d rather forget. Faced with dangerous new challenges, they must overcome their past, threats at school, bullies in the flesh, and ghostly apparitions bent on a deadly game of revenge. What was once a simple matter, discover the secrets of the ghosts and appease them, becomes a race against time as Emily and Michael fight the evil that threatens to conquer them.
So I only got 2,000 words, which is my normal word count goal, for Cougar Magic yesterday, baby is due any minute, and that means limited word count for me today. We’re facing some possible rain tomorrow and the next day from Gordon, but it looks like the brunt it hurt further west of us. Hope everyone makes it through the tropical storm, and possible tornadoes that might come out of it.
Have to run! Have a great day and hope you’re not in the path of this storm.
