Publishing News!

I’m so excited to announce that my novella, The Light in the Cave, is now available on Amazon here! It’s been a journey learning all about self-publishing, but I am glad I took the leap and will finally publish this novella!

Here is the description:

Karisa Meyers has just taken a position working in a cave as a government contractor in order to be closer to her boyfriend, Fox Greene, a Staff Sergeant in the Army. She’s a little worried she won’t be able to pass the tests and keep her job. Fortunately, Cole Brooks, her sexy trainer is there to help. However, soon she will uncover the secrets of the cave and need to battle a biobot vampire, a quantum computer, and her own growing feelings for Cole.

The Light in the Cave blends the genres of Paranormal Romance, Science Fiction, and Mystery while touching on metaphysical topics such as frequency, remote viewing, synchronicity, the power of the mind, and the gift of free will.

33% alien 33% vampire 33% quantum computer and 100% entertainment is found within this action-packed story!

This original novella was inspired from Tricia Sankey’s short story, The Reset, which received an Honorable Mention in the prestigious L.Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest.

From the Afterword of my novella:

A few people have asked me about the inspiration for the cave setting in my novella. There was a time I did work as a contractor for the government, redacting immigration records inside a cave in Missouri. No, I didn’t encounter any aliens or vampires (that I can speak of) but I did spend plenty of time daydreaming, (during my breaks, of course) and perhaps my frequency increased while I spent so much time underground. I did and still do notice 11:11 and 1:11 quite often, but I just consider it a fun synchronicity.

I also appreciate the synchronicity of my novella releasing for pre-order on 2/22/2022!

Unsteady #dVersePoets #Prosery

In a parallel universe, in space, in time, I sit thousands of feet above the sea, dressed in clouds. My imagination grows a tail and sailors think they see a dragon. They’re not wrong.

I used to hang with loose thumbs from the edge of the moon, so I’m accustomed to the swing of wild waves. I anchor myself to passive verbs in boring stories, where I can slice my soul, and release the ancient sludge in chewable pieces to hungry seagulls.

The dark bits dissolve under their tiny tongues, and they lean forward, head down, and produce a horrid choking call. Their eyes turn from warm brown to cool black as they digest the knowledge they were never designed to comprehend.

The grey sea casts its spell and I’m transformed, once again.

What am I now? Just a distant star, praying for oxygen.

Travel Light #dVersepoets #OLN (In memory of Glenn Buttkus)

Very sad to learn of the passing of Glenn Buttkus a member of the dVerse poets pub. He had such an original voice and he never held anything back. Lillian hosts Open Link Night this afternoon, where we can share any poem prompt free. I am sharing a poem I published this morning on my YouTube channel that speaks of traveling through life and ends on a note that we all have a safe place waiting in the mists. Glenn is home. 💗

I was lucky to befriend a nice photographer in Belgium who gave me the footage for all the nature reels in the following videos (KK photography). They are taken in #Austria. I’ll have to keep snagging his videos for furture poems! Hope everyone is having a great week and will try to catch up on my reading here today!
