"The Seventh Man" Book Release & Rafflecopter :)


When a young writer is kidnapped by a man who can't be seen, her only hope of escape rests on the one London cop who believes in ghosts.

Man oh, man, I'm having fun this week as another blogging friend releases her newest book.

Lisa Buie-Collard has written The Seventh Man, a "Gripping mystery and love story rolled into one."

Book description:
On a cold, white, before-Christmas day, an assassin completes a job only to be pursued by police. Dodging through crowded city streets, the assassin nabs a young woman for cover.
Celia Wight, a reclusive American writer is shopping between engagements during a book tour. When a knife is pressed against her back, she loses her tenuous grasp on her carefully controlled existence.
Assigned to the homicide case, Detective Alban Thain, of the Metropolitan Police, suspects an assassin he calls the Wraith. The problem is, only Thain believes the assassin exists. Disregarding the consequences, Thain, who is the only one who believes there is a connection between the murder and the kidnapping, will do whatever it takes to exploit the Wraith’s first and only mistake: the kidnapping of an innocent bystander—if she is innocent.

Available now in ebook and soft cover on Amazon.com

Woven is Weleased !!!


It is with *great* pleasure that I am helping promote two authors who are realizing their dream with the release of WOVEN.

Written by Michael Jensen and David Powers King, Woven is available now and is published by Scholastic :)

 Book description from Goodreads:

Two unlikely allies must journey across a kingdom in the hopes of thwarting death itself.

All his life, Nels has wanted to be a knight of the kingdom of Avërand. Tall and strong, and with a knack for helping those in need, the people of his sleepy little village have even taken to calling him the Knight of Cobblestown.

But that was before Nels died, murdered outside his home by a mysterious figure.

Now the young hero has awoken as a ghost, invisible to all around him save one person—his only hope for understanding what happened to him—the kingdom’s heir, Princess Tyra. At first the spoiled royal wants nothing to do with Nels, but as the mystery of his death unravels, the two find themselves linked by a secret, and an enemy who could be hiding behind any face.

Nels and Tyra have no choice but to abscond from the castle, charting a hidden world of tangled magic and forlorn phantoms. They must seek out an ancient needle with the power to mend what has been torn, and they have to move fast. Because soon Nels will disappear forever.

Available now wherever books are sold, including these here places:

New Year's Revolutions


For whatever reason [I'm a lazy bum] I really did suck at achieving many goals in 2014.

Out with the old...Sunset on O'ahu, Dec. 29, 2014

Now, don't get me wrong, it wasn't a *bad* year, but more of a quaffable year, definitely not a year I would put on my shelf and wait ten years before thinking.

I sit here tonight on a patio by a beach cottage we're staying in... thinking about the last few New Year's we've spent here and knowing this will be our last.

2015 brings a whole new set of challenges... we'll be moving to Virginia soon (+/- 90 days), so there's the whole deal with finding a house, school, pub, wineries... you know, the usual stuff.

But, it's going to be okay.

Anyone in the military reading this is just nodding and going, "yup, been there, moved here."

We've been *blessed to have spent four Christmases in Hawaii and while I don't know where next Christmas will be, I know it will be surrounded by love.

So, no New Year's resolutions for me... I'm going with the Revolution.

It's time for change -- and that includes my blog name, too :)

Happy New Year to you and yours -- and golly gee whiz, may *all* your dreams, hopes and aspirations come true.

Write on, dude.

New Beginnings... New Year's Eve Sunrise...
