Rats, Books, and Good Causes!
1. Kudos to Laura Johnston and Donna K. Weaver! These ladies set up Authors United Against Child Slavery.
It's inconceivable that someone could hurt a child, but sadly, it happens every day. There isn't much we can do alone, but united, we can do something. We can donate books, buy books, and/or spread the word.

Hunter and Troy.
3. The Seckman family has a new member. Meet Wilbur, the lab rat. He was my oldest son's psychology test rat. Wilbur's college days were over, so my son had the choice of bringing him home or euthanizing him. The rat comes to his name for crying out loud- he had to bring him home!!
Welcome Chrys Fey!!
Thank you for letting me steal your blog for the day, Elizabeth.
Since I’m releasing two short stories nearly at the same time, I decided to put both of my first paragraphs up for a battle.
First paragraph from Ghost of Death:
Jolie Montgomery didn’t know how she died, but all of a sudden she stood over her body in an alley. Her dark hair swam in a pool of blood. Her pale skin glowed in the moonlight, making her look like a porcelain doll, and her blue eyes shone with the metallic sheen of death. Across her throat was a deep slash. No blood pumped from the slit in her flesh as all her blood pooled outside her body.\
The first paragraph from Witch of Death:
The moon was a ceramic bowl overflowing with milk in the amethyst sky, and all the stars were sugar crystals. At three o’clock in the morning, the suburban neighborhood slept with its manicured lawns, matching mailboxes, and cars parked in spotless driveways. All the residents were asleep in their beds, dreaming dreams of beauty, emptiness, and horror. Outside, insects hummed a chorus of noise. Even the frogs roared.

Jolie Montgomery, a twenty-one-year-old woman, wakes up in an alley next to her corpse. She has no memories of her murder or the night she died. She didn’t even see the killer’s face before he or she took her life. Wanting justice, Jolie seeks answers in the only way a ghost can...by stalking the lead detective on the case.
Avrianna Heavenborn is determined to find the person responsible for a young woman’s death. She gets closer to the killer’s identity with every clue she uncovers, and Jolie is with her every step of the way.
But if they don’t solve her murder soon, Jolie will be an earth-bound spirit forever.
Available for PRE-ORDER:
Detective Reid Sanders doesn’t believe in the supernatural, but when he’s faced with a crime scene that defies the laws of nature, he has no other choice but to start believing. And solving a magical murder involves working with a witch.
Liberty Sawyer embodies the look of your classic evil witch, so, it’s no surprise when she uncovers the murderer is a witch that she becomes Reid’s number one suspect. If she can’t convince him otherwise, more people could lose their lives to dark magic, including her.
Chrys Fey is the author of Hurricane Crimes and 30 Seconds. She is currently working on the sequel to Hurricane Crimes that’ll serve as book two in the Disaster Crimes series.
When Fey was six years old, she realized her dream of being a writer by watching her mother pursue publication. At the age of twelve, she started writing her first novel, which flourished into a series she later rewrote at seventeen. Fey lives in Florida where she is waiting for the next hurricane to come her way.
