Here I thought I could be lazy and do a release blitz for another authors book. NOPE! I was off by a month. It is January 29! So I have to post any how. Late, but that’s okay. Hopefully everyone is having a lazy Saturday, or is so busy that you didn’t even notice, lol.
I’m super busy right now. I’m getting ready for retirement. Filling out the paperwork, setting up retirement seminars, and setting up book signings for the coming year. Adding to that, I haven’t had time to write in over a month. I’m trying to find a location in my house to write. I’m going to try to be a full time writer, but that is even going to be hard as I’ll be babysitting close to full time.
We’ll have to hash that out, lol.
I want to be able to write, but I need space for that. Right now every space is occupied. Over occupied even. I’m trying to find a space that I can write without being bothered. I need peace and quiet to write. It gets a bit expensive going to the coffee shop each day. For some reason the background music and talking don’t bother me. Of course, they are not trying to get my attention.
I want to get three books out by the book signing, Authors Invade the Beach (Myrtle Beach SC) in May. May 4th to be exact. So from my retirement on February 28th to April, I’ve got to buckle down and get working. Luckily, I’m close the end so shouldn’t be too bad of a stretch! Keep your fingers crossed for me!
In addition, I’m taking a couple of classes at the local community college. Welding for art is one of them. Figuring out the cloud is another. I just don’t get it, so I’m willing to go to a class on it. Hopefully that will make my brain click.
To end today, here’s a sneak peak at a bit of Finding Faith, unedited of course.
Skinning the rabbit, careful to keep the skin intact, she laid it on the largest leaves she could find. Sprinkling some rosemary on it, Faith wrapped the leaves around the meat. She tucked it in the outside of her satchel. She needed to keep moving. If anyone was out hunting and saw a fire, they would join her. Then expect her to return with them. So, a little further along and she’d feel safer from being found.
Circling the outside of the meadow, staying hidden in the trees, Faith headed further from home.
Hopefully no one would realize she was gone until tomorrow.
Her eyes widened at the snarl of a big cat. Faith froze. The sounds of the forest stopped. The cry changed to a snarl of pain. Faith crept beneath a tree, hiding from sight beneath its branches. Curious, she moved silently, trying to peek in the meadow. She gasped.
A shadow flew overhead, darkening the grass of the meadow. A large cat dangling from its claws.
Faith gasped, stunned. It couldn’t be. Fairy tales depicted them, showing the devastation they caused. She stared, heart thundering. Hidden beneath the drooping branches of a pine, she was invisible from the sky. A second one swooped down, snatching its prey and flying away. Faith shrank back then froze. The scream echoing through the woods, was all too familiar. It faded, more and more distant as the dragon stole away his prey.
Her breath caught, her heart stuttering. Oh no, it was Hope! Faith couldn’t help but recognize her own sister’s voice. Frozen, she stared, watching the monsters fly away.
Shaking her head, tightening her lips, she scrambled forward. She had to rescue Hope. There wasn’t time to go home for help. Sliding her knife in her belt, she ran, taking care to stay out of sight in the trees. Crossing the meadow might be shorter, but if there was one cougar there would be more. No use becoming a meal through carelessness. She had a sister to save.
No matter how long it took, she would follow. Hope would do the same for her. Thoughts of finding a new life fell away. She had to save her sister.
