Okay, it's not dark right now, but it will be eventually.
I have been away from my blog again. And after I promised I'd try harder. Naughty.
Let me give you a little update. I have been writing. The first draft manuscript for the fourth book of my Scarabae Saga, Shadows Amongst the Moonlight, has been completed for awhile, as has the collection of short fiction that will comprise the fifth book of my Scarabae Saga, Illusions of Darkness: The Forbidden. Work has also begun on the sixth and final book of my Scarabae Saga, The Lair of the Scarabae; it's only in the formative stages of writing, but I do know where I want it to go and it will answer questions and have a conclusion.
I've also been working on a shorter non-fiction book that will at first be a Kindle-exclusive of my ghostly experiences. People have asked me over the years to write something like this and I believe it will not only be a good way to share some of my experiences but it will also let people know not every experience is like those portrayed on those television shows--and we all know what I'm talking about. I call it These Ghosts of Mine, and it will feature an exclusive cover design by Laura J. Meese. Originally, I wanted to have it ready for October of this year, but I am holding off until most likely after the first of the year, 2015, because, since these are my true stories, I don't want them confused with or seen as a Hallowe'en publicity stunt. Understand? I think you will enjoy reading about some of the experiences I've had.
In other news, I broke my toe. The toes beside the little toe on my left foot. Walking by my antique red sofa in the living room, the one with the wood feet, I was watching the fish in the aquariums and not paying attention. Fishies fascinate me. Sure enough, I whacked my toe and heard it snap. More like a subtle crack. It doesn't hurt really. The swelling has subsided a bit and the purple that spread across all my toes and the top of my foot is slowly going away. I can still function and go to work even though I must take smaller, slower steps, so all is well. The last time I had a broken toe it was the toe beside my big toe on my right foot, That was a pain. Not only did it hurt, it threw off my balance completely. It's not the first broken toe I've had and I highly doubt it will be the last.
Fall is setting in. It's my second favorite season, Winter being the first. I enjoy the cool evenings where I can have the windows open. I love the colors of the changing leaves: the reds, oranges, yellows. They make the mountains look like they are ablaze. My mums are blooming--red, orange, and yellow. Those colors remind me of flames. In the Spring, I have lilies that bloom in those colors. Now if only I could find flowers for Summer.
