Invitation to a Party…

You’re invited. I have been working with Moonglade Marketing to handle my promo and a few other things. I am having a party to celebrate the unveiling of my site new streamline design and the release of Shadow Dance, my newest book release on Friday October 19, 2007. My fab web designer MMJ Designs has been hard at work to get everything ready for the party I have planned. Expect a few surprises and lots of fun.

So come on by on October 19 through 21, 2007 for a party. There will be fun and prizes.

Also coming is a new format for my newsletter and updates. Any members who are a part of Passionate Gazette, my current newsletter group and Crenshaw Times, my update groups will be set up to receive the new format for my newsletter/updates.
This is only part of my excitement.

In Crenshaw Café I will be posting random excerpts from various of my books as well as some exclusive sneak peeks to the group. They will get to see them before they are posted anywhere else. I also have some other things planned that will be exclusive to Crenshaw Café.

Musings: I remember ……

Today is September 11 and it carriers so much memories for me and many people. I debated if I should post this but I felt compelled to. I don’t talk about it much but I work close to the World Trade Center and was there that day. Here is what I remember.

I remember already being at work that day and a loud sound.
I remember calling my Mom on the phone and hearing those words the World Trade had been hit. Then silence as the phones went out and we could not speak.
I remember not knowing what was going on and then the fear racing through us all.
I remember going to the lobby of my office building and seeing people coming in blanketed in ash and anguish in their eyes.
I remember the indecision if I should leave or stay at my office.
I remember deciding to leave and that first step outside which brought the taste of ash to my tongue and horror in my mind.
I remember my first step in ash too deep to even leave footprints.
I remember going around the office building and seeing those lone shoes and briefcase sitting there discarded.
I remember meeting a tourist who did not know which way to run.
I remember a terrible sound then a cloud of smoke rushing at us.
I remember running, running and finding strength I did not know I could ever have.
I remember the rumors that the Pentagon was gone and the White House was no more.
I remember that first breath of air free of ash.
I remember the cup of water pushed into my hand by someone trying to help anyway they could.
I remember the droves of people walking without shoes, clothing, and no idea of how we would get home. No knowledge of what had really happened.
I remember the hours after struggling walking, running and finally able to catch public transportation.
I remember the bus ride done in anguished silence.
I remember walking up the block to my house.
I remember the door opening and my mom there to catch me as I collapsed crying and happy to be alive.
I remember the seconds. minutes, hour and days after still not believing that it was real.
I remember the TV images of people pulling together to help then I remembered once again the cup of water that kept me going and I cried more tears.
I remember going back to work that first day after everything. The guns, fear and uncertainty on each corner.
I remember to pray for those found but forever gone.
I remember to pray for those lost and never found.
I remember the hope and perseverance of a city that had lost so much and world never forget.
I remember to thank god each and everyday that I made it out of alive.

Today is September 11 and I remember.

Monday’s Adventure ~ Plotting.........

My current story has a plot that is taking a few unexpected twist and turns. It is surprising me but also making me wonder what is next. I love when a book does that. It is fun and exciting.
So I have been sitting here wondering if I made the twist I just wrote clearly understood. Oh Well as I continue the book I will see how it play out. At the end I will go back over it and see how it works.

This was my adventure for today. What was your Monday Adventure?
