Enter for a chance to win a singed copy of my latest release, Kindred Spirits.
A quick teaser to my upcoming short story collection. Due out Halloween 2013
Whether you’re getting married, moving into a new place or about to have your first baby, you go to your favorite store and what do you do? You register, that’s what. You go through the store adding things on a list that you would love to have. It takes the guess-work out of what people should buy for you to mark the special occasion. Some love these gift registries and some dislike them. But there’s no denying the popularity of said service.
After you’ve selected everything your heart desires, people are more than happy (We’d like to think ) to run out and purchase these things for you. Those near and dear to you hurry to grab those big-ticket items as if it’s some indication of their awesomeness. The satisfaction they derive from sitting at your bridal shower or house-warming party when you’re opening the gifts–hey, it’s just what you wanted!
Now imagine if you could do that for life, in general. No special occasion, just being able to put what you most desire on a list and people clamoring at the chance to oblige. How awesome would that be? I’m not suggesting here that others are responsible for providing you with things you should be attaining for yourself. This is just a whimsical little post so don’t shoot me down.
One of the things I’d put on my list would be, endless opportunities to travel. It’s probably my favorite thing to do. What would you put on your Life Gift Registry?
Yesterday I revealed the cover to my upcoming release titled, Kindred Spirits. It’s a short story collection. There’s bloody murder, family secrets, hauntings, insanity and more. I got so excited about the cover so I wanted to share it. Here it is designed by Hi-Rise Visions who did a fantastic job!
As part of my Enchanted Summer Games, I gave the participants a chance to do a guest post on either one of my blogs. I’m happy to post the first entry now. It comes from a woman who I interact with on Twitter. We connected because of a mutual admiration of, The Great One, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. She and her young daughter have been participating in my games daily. We’ve come to find out we have a hell of a lot of things in common. I’m enjoying getting to know her and her beautiful family. This is the reason I cooked up these games. It warms my heart when she tells me that competing in the games has brought her closer to her daughter through the friendly rivalry going on and time spent playing the games. The participants were told that they could write about any topic they wanted. Yet this woman chose to make her blog post about me! She suffers with a medical condition and is a mother of two! And she finds time to show support for little old me. That’s something I take note of and will never forget. Now on to her post.
When Did Support Die? by Christine
I joined Twitter ~3yrs. ago, all be it to follow Dwayne “Rock” Johnson, an to my surprise met quite a lot of people who took the same interest as me, not just “Rock” related ,but wrestling and reading. Through the years I have gained n lost a few followers, but “the best ones” Thank God have stayed around. I am ,with my daughter Bethany, playing a game hosted by a GR8 Follower..now better known Friend May Torres. She has written a book called Enchanted Island (which I am enjoying reading) an has come up with #EnchantedGames to allow her followers an friends to get to know her n each other better. It pisses me off with all the people on her list and mine that a handful play along. I ask WHY? ..The events are fun an the questions an tasks allow her to know you better and vice versa. It doesn’t take up all your time(as I am a Mom of 2 n go to rehab for my bone disease everyday).I am having a great time playing game n meeting new people but most of all learning MORE about May who I have been following for so long. I do understand that everyone’s life is busy, but 10 minutes of your day isn’t a lot to get to know more about your “friend” an give her support. Who knows one day you may need support an “word of mouth” to get your projects n dreams off the ground, yet your past actions might make it that much more TOUGHER. So I say Where is the support an not just pertaining to this but in life in general ?
