Note about my posts, not looking for your money!

I like to post books I find on Amazon that are free for anyone who wishes to ‘buy’ them. Now I have always known html and coding and wondered what I was doing wrong on wordpress that I couldn’t get my links right.  Well, Amazon has this program that if you use their widget, and someone clicks on the image of the book, I’d get paid for each click. That is so not what I am about so I am going to keep going the way I have been. I’ll post the picture but you’ll need to click on the link below it to go to the book on Amazon’s website.  I’m nothing a bout money! And all about proving others with free ebooks, book reviews and helping authors get reviews for their books.  Okay, I feel better. I am disabled and I cannot earn a profit.  That’s why when I go to publish my own books, they’ll be free. I get two emails from two different parties that give me some free ebooks or low cost and I laugh when the rare moment comes when we choose the same title.  Rare but it happens. 

So today is Wednesday. Put the garbage out. I am not a reheated meat person. It tastes different to me, not to be wasteful but me and my younger son seem to be the only one’s in our household aware of this taste. I’d rather have a PB&J sandwich thank you very much.

Today was also the day my younger son’s school allows us to visit for lunch and browse their Book Fair. We got some good books for both my boys, two bookmarks, a huge pencil, a poster of a red sports car (Hint: Italian), and a bracelet.  The little things were impulse buys from my son. We got a book for his class too from their wishlist, the same title my younger son chose and seemed to like.

The pilot episode of Pieces begins the story of Samuel Leo, a resident doctor who slowly gets pulled away from everything he thought was normal and forced to stare unavoidable change in the face–and watch it in turn, change him.

Pieces is a unique serialized series that follows in the footsteps of scripted TV serials by introducing ‘seasons’ rather than books. Each ‘season’ will consist of 10-15 episodes ranging from 30-45 pages with–depending on reader interest–the potential for some to become super-sized episodes.

The year is: unknown.

People are not born in hospitals. People don’t buy food at supermarkets. People don’t go for walks. There are no cars or planes, no buildings, no cities, no nothing…

But there is, Tent City. The place most people are born in. So for them, it’s home and reality. There are a few simple rules: earn some money, survive, and make sure you have your Identification Card when the Protectors come check.

Brad Glee was born in Tent City. His daughter Jasmine, is sick. And the last thing you want in Tent City is to be sick. So to make serious money, Brad ventures into the underworld of illegal fighting. Not any fighting. This is Tent City fighting.

What is it like to be damned? Arturus knows.

Born in Hell, Arturus has never had the chance to meet his creator or seek redemption; but that doesn’t mean he has no destiny. He lives near the village of Harpsborough, whose people have torn a moment of peace from the unwilling claws of damnation—and damnation wants it back.

Future omens are poor. Infidels roam the wilds, devils are amassing, and the very stones of Hell themselves have begun to break apart. But even while they fight damnation, Arturus and the hunters of Harpsborough find themselves facing off against traitors from amongst their own ranks and a people they thought they’d left far behind.

All I ever wanted was to be a normal girl. I had dreams of joining the ranks of the Military Police and making my family proud. But the nuclear war that laid waste to our country destroyed any hope I had of being normal ever again. They took everything away from me, including my humanity. I am now half-human, half-machine, part of the never-ending freak show that is the Restoration Project.

They hate what they created and they fear us for being powerful.

And so they hunt us, destroying our lives so that they can bury what they built. What they don’t know is this: there is a Resistance out there and The Bionics aren’t going down without a fight.

Will they find it in their adventures with these fascinating creatures called humans? And will the earth-men give in to these tantalizing beings: submitting to their desires?

I used to matter… but now I’m just a girl in a ghetto, a statistic of the Non-Compliance Sector.

Shea Kelly had a brilliant career in technology, but after refusing to implant an invasive government device in her body she was sent to a modern day reservation: a Non-Compliance Sector, a lawless community run by thugs and organized crime. She’s made a life for herself as a resourceful barkeep, and hacks for goods on the black market with her best friend Wynne, a computer genius and part-time stripper. Life is pretty quiet under the reigning Boss, apart from run-ins with his right hand man, the mighty Quinn: until Danny Rose threatens to take over the sector. Pushed to the edge, Shea decides to fight back …

Publication Date: April 27, 2012
NIMBUS is a steampunk novel for people who don’t know they like steampunk! This is the first volume in a complete, four-part steampunk fantasy serial that came out of the authors’ desire to do something new and interesting with ebook technology, while also dealing with a wide variety of narrative goodies–from airships to demon possession.

(The collected omnibus edition of all four parts of NIMBUS is also available.)


Seedy corporations and airship factions, demons and rogues, zealots and thieves…an epic tale of power, greed, and corruption.

Jude Finley is a new recruit aboard the Gangly Dirigible, an airship that extracts water from rainclouds. Having only lived above the Skyline for a year, Jude is still getting used to the way things work in the world above the clouds. While working aboard the airship, Jude and his friends uncover a secret which may or may not help them against a growing uprising that could spell doom for everyone on the planet.

Meanwhile, Demetrius Rucca, wheelchair-bound son of a prominent religious leader, begins recruiting followers for his own subversive cause. As allegiances are sworn to him and his followers grow, he begins to discover the new powers that lie within him. This power could be the salvation Demetrius is looking for–or it could be the destruction of the known world.

music more than just something, love more than just living

Just finished watching Les Miserables, 2012. It was beautiful on stage and emotionally moving on film.  It comes second to Phantom of the Opera, the film.  I enjoyed the many stage productions but Gerard Butler’s performance holds so much emotion, in his eyes, his stance, he is the perfect ‘Erik/Phantom’.  Especially since he does not wear that darn pinky ring I’ve seen others wear. Too pompous for me. Mr. Butler’s ‘Erik’ is haunting and this movie’s soundtrack especially ‘Point of No Return’, is my haven from the pain of this world. If the clouds cover the sky and hide the sun, I have this music to be lost in.  Should my life prove to be harder than I could believe it could be, I have this music.  In music you can close your eyes, and lose yourself in it.  It lifts my depression, strengthens my soul and brings a smile upon my lips. Listening to this particular song, as Mr. Butler sings at first, tender then at that one point the tenderness is gone and the need, want, obsession with ‘Christine’ is emotionally warped but in a good way.  I’m always humming parts of this soundtrack, and my younger son will say, “Phantom of the Opera again momma?” and my response, “Of course my love! His voice haunts me. It is beautiful.” and he replies to me, “You sing that a lot” and me “yes I do.”  We exchange smiles and life continues.

If my life is meant to be a mother, daughter and granddaughter, ex-wife and whatever other label anyone wants to put upon me, is there nothing else? I know love, have felt its strength, if I cannot have someone love me (family not included), be alone with my soul for the rest of my days, soon I will be turning 40, and with one son who is 15 and the other turning 10 soon, what will I do to fill those years when they no longer need me?  Online dating is not an option as everyone lies. People ask me now and then, am I dating. Are you kidding me? My first thoughts, ‘who would want me?’ and then blocking those thoughts out, ‘no time right now.’ I have fought to live, and this is the life I am living. the path I chose to follow. Death will come one day for me but not at my own hands and not over something as complicated as the love of a man. I don’t need another person in my life telling me what to do, how to do it and all that.  I know, not all marriages are like that, some are fabulous and wonderful but those are shapeless dreams floating away on errant clouds. Clearing my soul. There is no escape from life but to go on. And any thoughts otherwise is time best spent doing other things. key word there was DOING. Which means live. Don’t take the so called easy route out of life, don’t choose suicide. I’ve been on both sides of that coin and I am here today to keep you on the same side of the coin I chose. Life, for me, for you. ImageColleen
