Hidden - Please read

Hi Everyone!

If you hadn't already heard, I'd recently published a book called Hidden. It's about a two entirely separate creations that try and find a tangent. One of these world, that of the Beings, decides to send over a messenger that contains the soul of their creator. With such a mission in hand, they create a changeling who in turn grows up as a normal human would...or does she?

Here's the synopsis:
There had been a time before the humans, before life had existed. Since the start of time itself, Beings have inhabited the world, and with it, the deepest realms of thought. However, with the arrival of the humans, a deep connection had been wrought. Controlled by a fiery and bold Potentate, the Beings began to steer the creation of mankind. They Enlightened the ones they choose with potential. They created leaders, maniacs, civilizations. And the one Crawn, reincarnate of the Potentate, controls it all.
When Fanglae was born, she had been nothing. However, once she realizes that her world is occupied by the Beings, there is no longer any way for her to turn back to normal. With the help of her longtime friend, Jasperal, she discovers secrets about the Beings and herself that she would never have imagined. But with secrets comes dark consequences... Do you have the courage to unveil the Hidden?

The book is available in paperback for $6 or Kindle for just $3.99!
Additionally, it will be made available FOR FREE for all members of Amazon Prime!


Opening Your Pool



Here's a little something I'd written a while ago:

As I stepped outside, I could smell the fresh late-spring air. The birds were chirping, the grass rustling, the trees whistling. Best of all, the pool cover was about to be taken off.
It had taken months of preparing last summer to get the nerve to cover up the pool before the cold set in. Finally, it was time to start anew. With our handy-dandy pool-opening, stainless-steel-spring-removing gadgets in hand, old rags in the other, it was time for our mission to start.
Every groan of a spring coming loose, the boing of the safety cover letting go was only the prelude to what it would feel like once the cover was completely gone, to be stored away until the dreaded end of summer once again.
Until then, the opening of the pool, the time when you can feel the summer setting in, kids being let out of school, the season of freedom, change, happiness. That is joy.

Ender's Game

Since I'm not really expecting too many people to be reading this (800 hits? REALLY????) I will post a personal rant statement  that I am hoping will be out of my mind once this episode is over.

OMB Orson Scott Card is writing a movie for ENDER'S GAME!!!

In case you didn't know, Ender's Game is my all time favorite book. The rest of the series didn't quite...measure up...but that doesn't really matter because this is just too awesome to be eclipsed by something insignificant like a broken up series.

Okay, that may have been a bit too dramatic, but I'm still excited! The actors look like they're pretty good.
Check out this link that I found on the IMDb that might be dead by the time you read this:

And since Card's writing the script, I'm really hoping this comes out right. I know I'll cry if the movie comes up funky....please don't come out funky...

I've probably read the book five times already and I've recommended it millions of times after that...thank goodness because the school system actually agreed to make it a summer reading book for  the seventh grade (not that I had any influence on them whatsoever, though.) The school system just never listens to teenagers these days...


Any way, happy spring breaks for all you readers out there <snicker> and happy days!
