Mars Rover and book launch


What you MIGHT NOT KNOW is that scientists are bringing back the concept of an ether through which electromagnetic waves travel through space. They debunked the theory in 1887 and stated that space was "empty." They've discovered since that space is not empty. 

What will the "experts" come up with next? NASA continues to amaze us with the Mars Rover and more, the stuff of Buck Rogers and H.G. Wells of my youth.

Follow your dreams. My dream was to publish a book. 

Welcome to the launch of the trade paperback on September 1, 2012.

Look for my guest post on Chris Redding's blog Saturday, September 1st.

ANNOUNCING: AUTHOR CHRIS REDDING

Hello, Chris, welcome to my blog. Can you tell us a bit about your latest release, Blonde Demolition? Perhaps an excerpt? Thanks, Chris.
Excerpt Blonde Demolition
She slammed her hand on the table. Her beer wobbled. She caught it. "You are not seducing me back into this life."
            He shifted away from her, his arms crossed. His expression didn't change. He hadn't even flinched at her outburst. Not even at her use of the word seduce, which she knew any shrink would have a field day with.
Had he predicted what she would do?
            When they had worked together, he'd known before she did that she had to pee. She'd never met anyone so in tune with her. Maybe she never wanted to have anyone know her that way again.
            "I'm different now. I have this great life." Her finger stabbed the air, punctuated every word. "You cannot take that away from me."
            "I'm not taking away anything. I'm giving you something. I'm giving you back the ability to make a difference."
            She stalked away from him. "You think I don't make a difference? What about the family whose house didn't burn down because I was here?"
            "You can prevent many more houses from not burning down with us."
            She shook her head. "It isn't the same."
            He would not pull her strings. He would appeal to her sense of honor and her strong desire to help people. He knew all the cards she held and how to play them to his advantage.
"No, it's better," he said.

Blurb:
You just can't hide from the past...

Mallory Sage lives in a small, idyllic town where nothing ever happens. Just the kind of life she has always wanted. No one, not even her fellow volunteer firefighters, knows about her past life as an agent for Homeland Security.

Former partner and lover, Trey McCrane, comes back into Mallory's life. He believes they made a great team once, and that they can do so again. Besides, they don't have much choice. Paul Stanley, a twisted killer and their old nemesis, is back.

Framed for a bombing and drawn together by necessity, Mallory and Trey go on the run and must learn to trust each other again―if they hope to survive. But Mallory has been hiding another secret, one that could destroy their relationship. And time is running out.
