So many things have happened since my last post. I have taken my education and applied it into another direction. To those of you that are or were a patient of mine I will always cherish our time together. I have become part of the Jack Cooper Transportation Corporation. I have been busy learning their ways and trying to incorporate good habits. Lol, well at least try! I work in the shop and work with the mechanics and their shop managers. They have been really nice to not roll their eyes at me!!! In truth, I ran/owned a trucking company and my father was a mechanic. So this change is like when I was young back in the shop of my dad’s.
On the book end of things:
May 30th the book was introduced at an expo for new Authors. I have had positive feed back from this.
I met with Ms. York at the local restaurant in my town. Ms. York is a writer for the Owosso paper in my area. I was honored by being interviewed for the local paper. The print is supposed to be released this Wednesday. (hopefully)
The plans for the future:
Well, thanks to my mother I am lucky enough to go to England, Ireland and Scotland. My mom, niece and myself leave on this wonderful trip in Aug. I have been working on the second book to Master of the Spirit (The new Rein)
And this trip will bring so many wonderful things to the book. As I stay at each hotel, I am leaving a copy of the book in hopes that they will enjoy it as much as I do.
Hint for this blog
She is one of the oldest legends of the water……..
Well I’m happy to inform you all that I have received very nice reviews on Barnes and Noble. Thank you to all that have purchased my book. I am curious to what you feel was one of your favorite parts of the book? If you have read the story or even the blog here. Please let me know what part you found interesting or a part you enjoyed. I have several parts that I particularly enjoyed. The BBQ part where she is tested by Pharaoh. Where Lulu kicks some butt, and how Lulu and Mani work as a team to not only help their future but those of the dragon spirits.
Ok, here is my little bit of information for this blog. Each dragon is tied to an earth element.
Pharaoh- named after Egyptian times-Pharaoh of the waters.
Azulure- means of the sky/air
Nile- The river Nile
Nimbus- water and air
Hope you find this little bit of information interesting. See you again soon.
Since the last post here, my book Master of the Spirit, has been sent to online sales. A big Thank you to all that have already purchased this book. It is getting good reviews and I am open to comments and questions here on the blog. As for you here I will say that yes there is a sequel in the works and I must say I love the intro. I want to give you a little glimpse of the other main character Mani Davis.
Mani Davis was a typical young man until his mother became sick. He vowed to his mother, to make the best out of the life that he was given. As she became worse he cleaned up. No more parties, no more recklessness. He devoted his time to taking care of his mother while she fought for her life. When she passed it was Matthews friendship that kept him on the promised path. He became a music sensation with his heart felt lyrics. When He purchased his club looking for other opportunities he ran into Master Nu and his unusual proposition. He had already became friends with some of the locals in the area. Mani became family to one in particular. Dede, she had quickly become the second mother he was pleased to have. As Master Nu kept on about training and becoming a guardian, he knew there was more to this strangers story. He and Mathew would keep the enemy close, watching and waiting.
I really am thankful for the support! I hope you enjoyed the journey and even it’s frustrations as I did. The book is on Amazon and at Barnes and Noble. You can also get it straight from Dorrance. The actual promotion will be March 30. Not quite sure what they have planned, but I am sure I will enjoy the journey.
Well I have been away for a while but with good results. I was going to do a story on each character. Well tonight along with a very special photo I am going to share Pharaoh, and the cover to the book. There were a few bumps in the road but Dorrance has made an effort to work with me. The book is currently at the printers, with much happiness from me. Now with out further hesitation I give you Pharaoh.
It was time, I was to look for a human to combine my soul with. They must be strong of spirit, courage and mind. I am, an omega. It is expected that I connect with another omega of the human world.
Centuries old, I have had many and yet only a few that I would consider the keeper of my soul. With this gift comes great responsibility. I am the power behind all water. Yes, Pharaoh of the waters. Not human, but something of legends. I have the power to do many things. But we rely on the humans to help protect us from the hunters of our kind. If one of us are destroyed by a hunter the world of the humans will suffer the earth element attached to the alpha/omega dragon. Yes, I am the Dragon, Pharaoh of the waters, and I am omega!
Beyond excited I hope you all are too!
I was struggling to decide on who to write about next. So, I gave it some in-depth thought. I figured you have heard enough about Lulu, Gram, Dede, and you will learn about Master Nu. I am not ready to go into Mani as of yet maybe after this one. So I figured that the next best would be for me to introduce Matthew. Now where to start…..
Matthew knew from a young age that he was different. He was always good at physical activities. The problem wasn’t that he was good at them, the problem is he could feel everything. He knew when someone was coming, knew if they were a threat of not. He was always deemed a giant because of his size, and that’s why others tried to sneak up on him and beat him up. Unfortunately for the poor kid wanting a fight, Matthew also knew how to battle with whit and agility, not just bruit strength. And as the years went on along with the foster homes he found his best friend.
Now Matthew knows just what he is, he is a spirit hunter by blood. But being raised as a foster child he grew into his own man. Made his own choices and dared anyone to tell him he was wrong. He never became the hunter he was supposed to be, mainly because of his friend/brother Mani.
As a hunter Matthew was to seek out the Spirit guardians and their spirit and destroy them. So the legend goes… But Matthew had been with Mani when he seen exactly what happened when one of the spirits were killed. From then on he made his vow to protect them at all cost. So when his best friend is to become his enemy, it only makes his bond to Mani stronger.
Because this is my destiny, this is who I am.
More in book 2 about their past. ENJOY
It took many years for me to become what I am, and now they expected me to just turn over “MY” power. Ungrateful, pitiful, and weak bunch of so called spirit guardians. They can’t get rid of me that easily! I waited once for a sign of weakness I can wait for another.
What can I say! this character is sneaky, underhanded and someone to not turn your back on…..
The next character I am going to introduce is Gram, Or Grandma Ren. This is Lulu’s mothers, mom. She was a powerful woman in her day and continues to be the strong support in Lulu’s life and her new life to come. Here is a small part of their legacy that has fallen into Lulu’s life…..
She talked about our ancestors and our heritage since I was little. My grandparents had moved here from Greece. I sat there and listened to my mother go on and on about this ancient prophecy and how my grandmother was some Omega and how the time has come again for a new member. My mother was always going on about spirits. It wasn’t completely out of the norm for her to talk about spirits. But now she was making me a part of it.
“So you’re telling me that Grandma has a spirit within her. And now it’s time for a new one in our family?”
“So, why can’t it be you?”
“Because I am not the right age, and I have already had you. When your father and I had you, it meant that the next generation was to carry on the legacy”
“What does age have to do with it?”
“Because one needs to be strong and healthy and without a mate. Our bloodline has joined with that of the spirit for generations. We protect our kind. I am too old for this, Lulu, and I don’t have the strength needed to accept the beast.”
See you again soon with another character from Master of the Spirit..
