The Grimm Curse Fun Fact II

THE GRIMM CURSE Fun Fact: The spell I created in Chapter 16 can be a legit spell! I researched, translated, and referenced each ingredient used, to correspond with the desired outcome of the spell. For instance, in ancient times, “Dew of Sea” was used to drive away negative spirits. In modern times we just call it “rosemary.” That spell was a bitch to create. I’m a writer, not a poet! ūüėú

THE GRIMM CURSE Fun Fact: During one of my all-nighters, the dog and I split a pound of bacon at four a.m. while I wrote. And by “split” I mean “I ate 95% of it.” I don’t even like bacon! Get your copy of THE GRIMM CURSE today!

It’s HAPPENING, people!!!

My 40th birthday is coming up in a few weeks, so it seemed urgent to cross something off my bucket list, you know, before it was too late or whatever. ¬†After years of ranting and writing, I’ve finally decided to publish something!

Here’s what people are saying:

“This book is awesome! ¬†I love it!” ¬†-Mom

“Usually your stuff puts me to sleep, but this one I can’t put down!” ¬†-One of my two friends

“I’d buy it and definetly not regret it!” -Aunt who has read almost every book in existence

“I haven’t read it yet.” -My husband

Seriously, if those compelling reviews don’t grab you, I don’t know what will.

My First Book Release!

Tomorrow’s the day! THE GRIMM CURSE will be available for purchase in just a matter of HOURS! 

I took a break from ranting to bring you THE GRIMM CURSE, a paranormal romance that contains everything from witches and zombies, to vampires that would scare the sparkle out of all the pretty vampires. 

It’s a laugh-out-loud funny, pee-your-pants suspenseful, give-you-goosebumps romantic, at times tastefully pornographic novel, out just in time for fall!

THE GRIMM CURSE: Desmond Grimm is coming off a two-hundred year curse for a crime he swears he didn’t commit. The warlock’s only reason for living is his long awaited revenge against the family that took everything from him. He’s decided the seductive, defiant Kassandra will pay the price for her ancestor’s sins. One of three powerful witches residing on the cliffs of Maine, the fiery red-head refuses to go down easy in this battle of wits and will. Further complicating matters is a race of super-zombies that have been unleashed upon mankind, driven by their insatiable desire to consume human flesh. To save humanity, Kassandra and Desmond are forced to work together while being pushed to their limits, in both life and love. Kassandra must decide who is more of a threat, the demonic zombies that have been released into the world, or the gorgeous Desmond, who she could never trust.

 I’ll post the link that will take you directly where you need to go…stay tuned!  I hope you’ll take the time to check it out. 

Almost famous

But not really. I know I haven’t blogged in a million years, but I’ve thought of you guys often. 

Things are happening over here.  Like, we got a new puppy, my five-year-old came ‘out of the closet,’ (long story short, it was a false alarm) and I WROTE a BOOK!

No seriously…I finally did it. And I plan on self-publishing in the near future. One week, to be exact. 

Check it out!


Cool, right?!  Well anyway…my mom thinks I’m awesome, so there’s that. 

And here’s a little info for you!

Demonic Light Switch

My husband’s a techie kind of guy, he loves electronic gadgets and devices that are fresh on the market. ¬†Anytime an Apple anything comes out, his pupils dilate and a line of drool drips from the corner of his mouth. It’s like watching National Geographic, a “tech in the wild” hunting his next catch. ¬†He can fix anything, which is great because I can break anything. Balance…it’s what makes our marriage work.

I don’t mind most of the technology he brings into our lives. ¬†As a general rule I just don’t touch anything that flashes, or anything with buttons. ¬†But sometimes when I just look at something electronic it malfunctions. ¬†It’s like I have superpowers or something.

Enter the motion sensored light switch in the bathroom. ¬†It seemed like a good idea at the time, and likely safe as I didn’t have to touch it…hence the “motion sensored” in its title. ¬†I don’t even know what happened. ¬†I stood too close to it or something and the button popped¬†right¬†off and landed next to the sink.

I picked it up, which was stupid because I know better. ¬†I took a look at how this piece of plastic might function, and it seemed simple enough, so…you know…I fixed it! ¬†Haha, suck it Tech Boy…look who else knows how to fix stuff around here now…

The next time I walked into the bathroom, the light switched on and I felt like a self-sufficient¬†genius. ¬†I sat down to …well, to pee…and the freaking light turned off. ¬†I sat in total darkness for a second, and then it switched back on. Oh thank God. Then off…then on again, then off and on. It was like a strobe light. ¬†What the hell? ¬†¬†Am I in a bathroom or at a damn rave?

So I sat real still, careful not to even breathe, and the light switched off.  Dammit!  I waited for it to switch back on, but it just stayed dark.  Terror set in, as I was sure Bloody Mary was going to jump out of the mirror at any minute and I tried desperately to think of anything but her name.

I couldn’t work under that kind of pressure, but I also couldn’t get over to the light switch to operate it manually. ¬†I mean, physically I could, but the switch was right next to the mirror with a demon in it. ¬†See the logic?

Just before I was going to scream, the light randomly switched back on.  As I finished up and buttoned my pants the damn thing switched off yet again.

“Oh come on you son-of-a-bitch!” ¬†I yelled across the dark room. “Mother f***ing Satan switch from hell…”

Bloody Mary.  The words snuck into my head.

“Shit!” ¬†I said, frozen in place.

Bloody Mary. Dammit!¬†¬†It happened again. ¬†Crap…that’s twice. ¬†Once more and I’m f***ed.

Then I thought “Speaking of ‘Bloody Mary’ I could really use a drink.”

Wait…what?! ¬†I was talking about the drink, does that still count?!

I waited for the mirror demon to take me to hell, but instead the light clicked back on. ¬†So I bolted out the door. ¬†The little guy was standing in the hallway and¬†pointed out¬†that I “left the light on.”

Trying to appear “normal” or whatever, I stood outside the bathroom and slid my hand around the wall to push the switch off. ¬†And wouldn’t you know it, no matter how many times I clicked that damn button, the light wouldn’t turn off.

Stupid demonic light switch from hell…
