HELLO from the dark ages! Day 5 and there are still 14,000 some without power. Things in town are rather wonky as stores restock their shelves from having to toss their foodstuffs. The cell phones are for the most back up, though occasionally still a little slow and yesterday we lost internet until late in the evening.
But guess what?!! The town has been gracious. Everyone. So for all the bad press we get, strangers opened doors, ppl randomly made offers of hot food, showers or even dips in their pools to cool off. Even hot, tired and stanky from desperate needs of showers, the citizens of Tallahassee stepped up, stayed optimistic and jumped forth to help their neighbors.
Most common request we received were dips in the pool and charging of cell phones.
Our loss was the pool pump motor. Sucker won’t come back on which means a green pool until the hubs can get time off to replace it. Also, a ceiling fan oddly won’t come either. Power is up and down. Popped off this morning, but sprang back on quickly. (YAY!!!)
Utility crews have worked ROUND THE CLOCK getting power restored. Their families haven’t seen them since this storm hit, and MUCH GRATITUDE goes out to all of them.
THANK YOU GUYS!!! (And Gals!)
Now onto writerly related events.
Through the month of September Amazon has placed both, Books one and two, on super .99 sale! Yep, grab up Swamp Magic (Bk1) or Under the Full Moon (Bk2) at this amazing price.
My shifters are locally found critters and my heroes don’t turn into, but rather take on the unique qualities of these amazing underdogs of the southern region.
Check out this recent awesome review! (Or check out one of the many reviews found at Amazon or Goodreads)
Also, mark your calendars about the upcoming October 20th, 9 PM EST, Halloween Party at Writerspace featuring the authors of Loose Id, Publishing! Prizes will be awarded at the end of the party.
Wish me luck as I jump back into a semi routine state and hopefully finishing up this yet unnamed, super hero story.
