I want to tell you about a writer friend of mine. His name is Brandon Hale and he writes paranormal horror stories. They're very popular. But lately most of Brandon's time has been taken up battling cancer, and I do mean battling. So a number of his writing friends got together and wrote about 30 short paranormal horror stories. The kindle version of this anthology tops out over 400 pages and costs $4.99 If vampires and werewolves are your thing check out The Bitten. Also look at other works by Brandon. Day Soldiers is well worth a read.
The title of my new book (or the new book of my alter ego, Jess Allison) is Shapeshifter Prophecy.
Thank you Suzy for pointing out my crazy spelling and for your kindness in attributing it to euphoria.
"Honest judge, I'm innocent. Euphoria made me do it."
Next time I'll post the new cover from my cover designer, Dawn Smith of DarkDawnCreations. I love it, and hope all the readers of The Cancordian Adventures will, too.
Lucky me, I've finally landed in Paradise, AKA Encinitas, a small beach town in San Diego county about 30 miles from the Mexican border.
I wanted a three bedroom house with a view of the ocean, and a walled yard with lemon and orange trees. It's nice to want things. Gives you focus.
What I got was a one bedroom apartment on the third floor with a small patio overlooking jacaranda trees and scarlet bougainvillea.
I can't exactly see the ocean from my patio but I can easily walk down to it, and I do. I love it.
Now all I need is more furniture and less boxes cluttering up my living room. It's nice to have a goal.
The picture above is the road in front of my place, leading down to the ocean. It constantly temps me from my computer.
Further adventures to follow. Oh, forgot to mention my new book, under the pen name Jess Allison, SHAPESHIFTER PROPHECY due out soon.
My friend, Nick Russell, a NY Times best selling author and all around good guy has a mystery series out that I think all you mystery fans will love. THE BIG LAKE mysteries have it all; small town, interesting characters and big stories. Follow this link to a good time? http://www.amazon.com/Big-Lake-ebook/dp/B00522RM48/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1321151688&sr=1-1
Enjoy life, read THE BIG LAKE by Nick Russell.
No, this isn't a pelican, unfortunately I was enjoying the view so much I forgot to snap a picture. But this is the Encinitas, Ca beach, my old stomping grounds.
I've thought of returning to beautiful Taos, NM, and I still may. But for now, I'm falling back in love with Encinitas and thinking of beach bumming for a few years. Writing and beach bumming, what could be better for someone like me?
For all you millions of my readers (and the few thousands who really do read my work) Encinitas is in Southern California, in San Diego county. It's about 30 miles from the Mexican border. The nearest Mexican city is Tijuana, also know as TJ.
I have mixed feelings about TJ, but since I haven't been there for years and years, I think I'll revisit it before I write anything denigrating about it.
Have any of you been to Encinitas? Been to San Diego? Love it? Hate it? Couldn't believe people really live as if getting up and jogging in the morning is more important than closing down the house?
Enjoy life, read a book.
The clock tower on the Ferry building and inside the building, where they have all sorts of wonderful restaurants and shops, the cheese shop.
By the way, my two main characters in my new mystery are behaving very badly. Each is going off on his and her own, completely ignoring me. But what do I know, I'm only the author.
Bye for now. Enjoy life, read a book.
I am so going to miss this town. The hills go almost straight up, to the point that you need ropes and climbing shoes with cleats. But that's nothing to coming down the hills... in a car. You hold your breath, say a prayer, grip the wheel with white knuckled hands, and go for it.
