My publisher is offering all of their e-books for 50% off after Hurricane Sandy. If you want a copy of The Oathbreaker’s Son, use code Hurricane50 to get your copy at half off!
The Oathbreaker’s Son is the tale of Zoe Striking, a shy reserved young woman looking to change her life, but never expects her new house to force it upon her! Not only do things go bump in the night, they show up in her mirrors and put their cold hands on her body when she least expects. With two 5-star reviews, The Oathbreaker’s Son is a great Halloween read.
Have a great day out there!
Five solid days of rain have already passed with a forecasted three more still to come. Staring out the window, the remaining leaves on the trees wave at me violently as if each one begs to be brought in to sit by the fire. Those that have fallen cover the storm sewers, creating lakes along the roadside large enough to drown the dog. Speaking of the dog, she is antsy, nudging me daily to the door only to step outside and immediately turn back around, the brown of her eyes blackening as depression sets in. Now, with Hurricane Sandy on her way to whip Southern Ontario around for a few hours, I feel caged in. I have so much to do inside – writing, reading my Illustrator course lectures and completing my assignments, a Halloween costume to sew, an online hockey coaches course to complete – yet all I want to do is go outside. One or two days of rain are welcome. When I feel like I should invest in a rowboat and sell my minivan, perhaps Mother Nature has been a little too cruel. I live in Canada after all, not England.
I’m staring at my laptop knowing full well what I should be doing, but instead I write a blog post about the pouring rain. Storms are emotional for me. If I had a covered porch, I’d be wrapped in blanket outside listening to the wind tell me its tales or singing a rap to the raindrops drumming the rooftop. Since my deck and front porch are wide open, I have to be content to sit inside, ponder my life and wonder how I will ever keep up with what I need to do. Life is like that I guess. Always striving, always working, never enough time to get everything you want to do, done.
I don’t need time management skills. What I need is for some miraculous addition of about four hours to the day. Of course if my wish were granted, two of those hours would be gobbled up, as I’m most certain labour laws would change to grant businesses an extension of a legal work day. I most certainly would take at least one hour away for sleep, since I’m seriously lacking there anyway. What would I do with an extra hour? Probably none other than waste it at the TV or playing a game.
Zoe Striking faced a storm of her own. Read about her in The Oathbreaker’s Son – available at the links below.

Enjoy your day!
I’m so excited, I could EXPLODE! The Oathbreaker’s Son is now available in print. As soon as I have a minute to breathe, I’m going to order at least 10 copies. The moment I hold my baby in my hands will be nothing less than pure contentment. After a year of writing and editing that novel, seeing her in black and white (colour cover of course) with my name in red across the front will bring the circle to successful completion. Five years of rejection, questions, writing and re-writing other work, research and editing has put me exactly where I wanted to be – PUBLISHED! Thanks to everyone for their support so far. I’m looking forward to completing my sci-fi and starting the process anew.
The Oathbreaker’s Son has two 5-star reviews, one on Amazon and one on Goodreads. You can purchase a print copy of The Oathbreaker’s Son on Amazon.com here:
Have a great day!
