Packing my Bags

I’m on a cyber journey to C.S. Boyack’s blog today. He invited me as a guest to promote my latest, Posed In Death. I’ve mentioned Craig off and on here. He writes speculative fiction I enjoy, especially his Lanternfish trilogy with Serang, a character who will stay with me a long time. At his place, I’m talking about why I decided to write something darker than a cozy. I mean, it’s not like I needed to start another series. I already have three mystery series I like to write, but…

I meant to get up earlier to share my guest post and give it a roaring start:) But our daughter stays at our place when she works as a traveling nurse in town. I don’t usually hear her come home, but she got off at 3:30 and walked in the door at 4:00 but couldn’t sleep. She was still awake at 7:00 and I heard her moving around in the kitchen so got up to check on her. (I know. She’s in her forties, but old habits die hard). Anyway, . two of her patients were sent to hospice last night (not Covid), and it made it hard for her to relax. I’m glad I got up. After she talked it out, she could go to sleep. I went back to bed, too. One of the joys of retirement:) So I got a late start for the day, but life happens. And I woke up to the fun of being Craig’s guest. Yay! I hope you check out his site and my guest post:

  1. That must be so hard for your daughter. I’m glad you were able to talk with her so she could get some sleep. That’s a great post over at Craig’s place. I’d be happy to host you on my blog as well if you’re looking for additional promo. Just shoot me an email.

    I already grabbed Posed in Death and it’s next on my read list!

  2. She’s lost enough patients, it doesn’t usually bother her as much as it used to, but she’d had the one patient for a while and grown fond of her. She’s been in and out of the hospital a lot. Then to have 2 patients go to hospice in one night–and both of them really nice people–got to her.

    Thanks so much for volunteering your blog to me, but you usually review my books, and I don’t want to wear out my welcome with your readers:) But that makes me think, I’d be so happy to host you on my blog when your book comes out. Just let me know when you’d like to visit.

    I hope you like Posed In Death. You’re an expert on thrillers, and mine doesn’t exactly follow the rules.

  3. I would get attached to patients too. I think the job your daughter does would be so hard.

    I just finished the book I was reading, so I’ll be starting Posed in Death tomorrow night. I can’t wait to see what you’ve done with it. And, yes, I look forward to sharing my review on my blog 🙂

    Thanks for the offer of hosting me. I’m working on promo posts now. Let me see what I can throw together. I am so out of practice on this, LOL!
