I Survived Blog Hop...

6:00 AM Elizabeth Seckman 43 Comments


I'm playing catch-up and operating on a computer that runs as fast as I do in a marathon. 


Translation? We both go slow and have to pause for breathers every other second. 

To save my sanity, I'm not going to try to do anything fancy with this beast. Instead, I'll pray that Best Buy calls me for a pick up tomorrow so I can do a better update next week. 

Until then, here's my contribution to Chrys Fey's blog hop!


Congratulations to Chrys Fey on the launch of her new book, Tsumami Crimes! To help Chrys spread the word, I'm participating in her blog hop...a pretend news story about a pretend tsunami. 

"This is Chrys Fey reporting for Disaster 5 News. I am in Nags Head, North Carolina where a tsunami hit yesterday morning. I have Elizabeth with me, a survivor of the tsunami. Elizabeth, can you tell our viewers what happened, and how you survived?"
Oh lordy! I saw it coming from way out. I was just sittin' on the beach minding my own business when I saw that wave coming right at us. At first, I was like, "Hey boys grab your boogie boards. It's a dandy!" But then I noticed it kept growing higher and higher until it seemed to block out the sun. I knew then, this wasn't a wave to play in. So, we took off running. My husband and kids...well they run a whole lot faster than I do. They kept trying to drag me along, but I was winded so I told them, "Save yourself. I'll be all right."

I didn't really think I'd be all right at all, but that's what you've got to say to get your family to leave you. Come to think of it, I didn't have to argue with those SOBs at all. 

But anyhow, they ran off to safety and I stood my ground- ready to take on that wave. When it hit, my body just sort of floated. I'm not sure if it was angels lifting me up on their wings or the higher than usual fat cell count in my ass. On way or another, I floated right to the top of that wave and was set safely on a the other side of the island. 

I like to call it my Twinkie induced miracle. 




Title: Tsunami Crimes
Series: Disaster Crimes #3
Author: Chrys Fey
Genre: Romantic-Suspense
Page Count: 272

BLURB: Beth and Donovan have come a long way from Hurricane Sabrina and the San Francisco earthquake. Now they are approaching their wedding day and anxiously waiting to promise each other a lifetime of love. The journey down the aisle isn’t smooth, though, as they receive threats from the followers of the notorious criminal, Jackson Storm. They think they’ll be safe in Hawaii, but distance can’t stop these killers. Not even a tsunami can.

This monstrous wave is the most devastating disaster Beth has ever faced. It leaves her beaten, frightened. Is she a widow on her honeymoon? As she struggles to hold herself together and find Donovan, she’s kidnapped by Jackson's men.

Fearing her dead, Donovan searches the rubble and shelters with no luck. The thought of her being swept out to sea is almost too much for him to bear, but the reality is much worse. She’s being used as bait to get him to fall into a deadly trap.

If they live through this disaster, they may never be the same again.

  3. Hmm. Does this mean I can start eating Twinkies right now for my health? Brilliant! (Loved the part where the boys outrun you. My kids might do the same.)

    1. Most certainly, especially if you live in a flood zone.

    1. You mean the computer? The motherboard went bad= on two of them. Perhaps I'm hard on motherboards.

      Or if you mean why does my cupboard not restock Twinkies by magic? I don't know why.

  11. OMG, Elizabeth - that was hilarious! I'm still giggling over here and I'd like to think my rather large bum might rove itself as useful some day. Congrats to Chrys and have a great weekend!

    1. There are plenty of uses for a healthy bum- extra seat padding, warmth in the cold, and a reserve area for nutrition in times of starvation.

  12. Fat obviously serves a purpose! I'd say embrace those Twinkies...kind of like a life raft.

    1. You could probably strap them all together and use them as a raft too.

  15. Hope Chrys' book is doing great. Loved the tone of your story. Ride the waves, I say.

  16. I love this. I can just imagine the dialogue between you and your family.

    You, dramatically: "No, please, go on without me!"
    Family: "Oh, okay. Sure."
    You: "What? No, you're supposed to be conflicted about this! WTH?"

  18. LOL! Elizabeth, you're a hoot. Yay for Chrys! Somehow I completely missed the signups for the blog hop--probably because I took December off and left town for a big chunk of January. Whew! Time to get back to normal, eh?

    1. I was out most of December too. My kids are growing up so fast, time spent with them is precious and I don't like to work when they're home.
