‘Willing Spirits’ – Free on Kindle
Description: “When a Prudence waits until the last minute to write a school book report, she finds help from an unlikely source: the dead author. What could possibly go wrong?”
I had fun writing this one. Hope you enjoy it.
A first for me: A post on Malcolm’s Round Table with 700 hits in the first two days: Okay, who in my zip code is an Ashley Madison User? As I mentioned on Facebook, this is an indicator of what’s even more important than mom, apple pie, little baby ducks, cats and rain. A friend said we should add warm fluffy puppies. Another said that we live in a sick society. Both comments are probably true.
Coming September 1 from my Publisher: Making Amends by Melinda Clayton: “On a beautiful fall evening, in the middle of a game of hide-and-seek, five-year-old Bobby Clark is kidnapped by his estranged father, a shiftless man with a history of domestic violence and drug abuse. Bobby’s twin brother Ricky watches, terrified, from his hiding place behind the bougainvillea, while mother Tabby, who also struggles with addiction, lies inebriated on the living room floor. Bobby isn’t seen by his loved ones again until a fateful morning twenty-five years later, when video of his arrest dominates the morning news. He has been charged with the murder of his father, but before the trial can begin, he manages to escape. As Tabby and Ricky absorb the news of Bobby’s return and subsequent escape, Tabby is convinced he’ll come home to the quiet Florida street from which he was taken so long ago. But when events begin to spiral out of control, she’s left to wonder: is a child born to be evil, or shaped to be evil? And in the end, when it’s time to make amends, does it really matter?”
Have a great weekend as we plough into September.
