Thankful Time: Sunday was Veteran's Day, so I have to give my thanks to all those that have served and/or currently serving. It's so easy to take for granted all the great freedoms I enjoy...like blogging for example. I'm thankful that I live in a country where I'm allowed to write whatever I damn well please on here. And it's our armed forces that remain vigilant in the protection of these rights we exercise every single day.
I attended my very first military funeral just two weeks ago. It was a somber, yet incredible experience. I think everyone should go visit a national military cemetery. I think you will find it to be humbling, moving, and most of all patriotic.
Quick NaNoWriMo Update: I worked my ass off to stay ahead of the daily 1667 word quota. But I kicked it into high gear all this past week - especially the weekend. My oldest son had a robotics competition which lasted ALL DAY. So with all of that downtime, I brought my laptop and got writing.
This week is going to suck, as I'm going to be crisscrossing the Midwest for my job. But I'm already pretty close to the 50,000 WriMo goal. I will hopefully surpass that, as my first drafts tend to exceed 100,000 words.
M. Pax's The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear is HERE!
I always do a double-take when I see the title of Ms. Pax's latest work. I always think it says "Heather Locklear." Huh. Must be a mix of 80s nostalgia and adolescent hormones kickin' in.
A New Adult Urban Fantasy, The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear is the first book in a new series. And it’s now out! The main character, Hetty, is a twenty-two-year-old, stumbling about in an effort to become a full-fledged adult. She struggles with self-esteem, weight, relationships, and making the transition between college and the real world.
Graduation from community college isn’t the magic elixir Hetty Locklear counts on for becoming an adult. Her parents, who work the Renaissance fair circuit, insist she spend part of the summer with them. Hetty doubts pretending to live in the Middle Ages will help her find her way.
To make it worse, an entity haunts her at her dead-end job, warning her of a dangerous man she doesn’t know. The ghost leads her to a lover who has a lot of secrets. He pulls her farther into peril and into a strange, hidden world of genetic experimentation.
New Adult Urban Fantasy with a contemporary sci-fi twist. Mature content.
Available as an ebook at Amazon / Amazon UK / Smashwords / iTunes / Kobo
