I’m grateful for this sweet, beautiful soul little girl who makes my life so much happier. I’m grateful for a warmer day with the snow all melted. Grateful to be reading a good book.

What are you glad or grateful for today?

On the plus side of being sick I’ve stopped pushing myself to work and I’m just reading

On the plus side of being sick I’ve stopped pushing myself to work and I’m just reading and reading. I finished THE DELPHI EFFECT by Rysa Walker which I love so very much, and I bought myself the sequel THE DELPHI RESISTANCE as an e-book. I’m excited to dive into it. I love well-written books about psychic powers, especially YA.

I am reading and loving THE DELPHI EFFECT by Rysa Walker

I am reading and loving THE DELPHI EFFECT by Rysa Walker; it’s well written, and full of tension and depth. I love books about psychic and paranormal powers; it’s part of why I wrote HUNTED. I love the almost magical possibilities (and as a teen I wanted such powers to somehow help me escape the abuse and torture)

I really enjoy how Rysa incorporates people with traumatic pasts and some psychological issues with psychic powers. Love the way she presents the powers. As a cult survivor there are some things I find a little triggering, but that just makes me identify with the characters all the more. Recommended!

I am looking forward to reading WHAT IF? by Anna Russell about a boy with OCD

I am looking forward to reading WHAT IF? by Anna Russell about a boy with OCD, written in a poetry style. I so appreciate seeing books with characters who deal with mental health issues. It is published by @west44books and the hardcover looks beautiful, and has a pleasing, almost soft feel to the cover.

I’m editing my manuscript and I just turned to The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi

I’m editing my manuscript and I just turned to The Emotion Thesaurus by @writers_helping_writers_angela and @beccapuglisi to make sure that the physical reaction for the emotion I was writing fit, and to see if there was anything else I could add. Whenever I think I’m repeating myself too much describing emotion or need to change it up I pick it up for inspiration. Writers – it’s a good book to have around.

I ordered Petal’s pet food and treats from PetSmart with home delivery (I am so glad that they deliver!) and they tucked in a handwritten note and an extra treat for Petal. I thought that was such a lovely thing to do and also a great marketing because it made me feel good. It was a Whimzees chewie shaped in an alligator and Petal has been enjoying it! Thank you @petsmart ! Continue reading

I’ve been finding Halloween harder this year

I’ve been finding Halloween harder this year, including the weeks leading up to it-it’s a time when cults increase their torture-but I’ve tried to focus on ways to make it positive tonight: dressing Petal up, and me, and then going out with the three little girls and their baby sister. I love Petal looking cute and adorable as a butterfly fairy, love wearing butterflies myself (can you tell I love Monarch butterflies?), and I love the kids’ enjoyment and delight in spending time with me.

I wish stores and houses didn’t display gruesome decorations like chopped, bloody limbs; human skulls; skeletons; spiders; masks, and gravestones, all of which are used in cult torture and abuse (real ones, not fake), but I’ve been getting through, and now I’m back home cuddling Petal and relaxing.
