Sometimes it’s both, lol! I’m going to be short and sweet! I’m on my way to Omaha Nebraska and I’m leaving in the snow. Ugh. I hope that goes away, but I can’t guarantee it. Guess I’ll see! Google says it is an 8 hour drive. I figure 10 hour. If it is snowy, who knows! It may change my plans on when to leave to get home. We’ll see. I’ll be safe either way.
In the meantime, check out the two anthologies I’m in!
A collection of short love stories to warm the heart. Compiled by four authors, all proceeds from the sale of this collection will be donated to a charity which supports homeless veterans.
Broken Prince Charming by Beverly Ovalle
I lost my way. Discharged, broken, I sought comfort from a bottle. A lot of bottles. I wore a mantle of guilt that I had survived, while most of my buddies died. My life spirals downward. Rock bottom is ugly. I realize I need help and reach out for it. Hidden among the homeless and despair is a bright light, with milk chocolate skin, bright blue eyes and a smile that cheers my soul.
Grace. She smiles and carriers a beacon of hope within her. Despite circumstances that would bring anyone else down, she forges her own path. A path different from her mother’s. Determined to support herself and leave the shelter behind, she has a plan. Nothing and no one will stop her.
She deserves a fresh start, and I’ll help her get it. Even if it means I’m left behind.
Finding a Memory by Mona Casey

During their time on earth, it was unheard of for a single caucasian woman to live unsupervised with her African American butler and driver but that didn’t stop them. Their story is timeless and heartwarming with a tragedy tossed in.
On the Home Front by Tina Susedik
War is Over!
With a shout, radio host Erna Huber gave the battle cry that brought hope back to all the women waiting for news of their husbands, sons, and fathers. World War II was finally at an end, but what does that mean for all the women that kept America running while the men were away?

With her sharp wit, and bombshell appearance he was hooked from the get-go.
Can they successfully navigate the war between the sexes on the home front? Or will their relationship prove to be more than either one of them bargained for?
You know what they say, all’s fair in love and war.

Pavolok is amazed at how different life on Earth is. Tasked with safely bringing aboard colonists, the Storm Area 51 Raid is the perfect opportunity to round them up. When the US Military tests a weapon on their own citizens, he steps in to save them. What he doesn’t expect is his body’s reaction to one of the human women. Her purple hair and violet eyes draw him instantly to her.
Amy joined the raid for the heck of it, along with her siblings. Naruto running and clapping cheeks appeals to her sense of humor.

Transported to a space ship that really doesn’t live up to her expectations, she can’t seem to keep her hands off Pavolok.
Amy hadn’t planned on having an alien in her life, but once she clapped him, she’s not willing to give him up.
