The Sunday Post #8

What’s Next?

The COVID-19 vaccine is starting to be distributed. This is a good thing, but we still need to be cautious. The country is going for “Herd Immunity.” And this can be a good thing. It’s what stopped the Zika virus in Brazil. It took TWO YEARS for enough people to have been exposed for the virus to be stopped. That’s a long time to ask people to wear a mask and keep their distance. We already have people refusing to do, citing “my body, my choice.”

That’s a slogan people my age (Baby Boomers) have heard before. Then it was used to refer to the choice of whether to have an abortion or not. That was a personal choice that didn’t affect the people you passed as you went along your way.

Today is a totally different scenario. Simply breathing can affect the people around you when you are out of your house. You can be affected by others who aren’t wearing masks. The best guess scenario is that it could be next fall before we get back to something we can call normal. You don’t want the vaccine? Fine, that’s your choice. But for the love of God, please at least wear a mask!

Weekly Cup of Coco

That’s my pillow!

Coco doesn’t want to spend the night in our bed but apparently has no problem claiming my pillow. The changes in in our little girl are like night and day since we got her.

At her last vet’s appointment, we received the good news that she is officially not anemic anymore. YEAH! I shudder to think to how she suffered with all the fleas that caused the anemia. I try not to blame the individual who gave us Coco for not doing more. But there was somethings he was doing that are just plain wrong. He had 4 dogs and would feed them by cutting off a piece of ham and hand feeding it to them. I didn’t see any evidence that this was supplemented by regular kibble. So no way did any of the dogs get enough to eat.

Newsletter Coming in September!

In trying to promote my blog, I took note of something I hadn’t seen before. Essentially, I have two main streams of posts going. First are the book reviews which are the reason I started this blog. But here of late I also have what I call “Kitchen” stories. These are the recipes and COVID-19 posts. I enjoy both and I have noticed that more people are starting to follow me.

I don’t think everyone is interested in all the posts. Some people are definitely looking for the book reviews. Others are more interested in the recipes.

Since I plan to start a newsletter, I want to give you, my readers, the opportunity to choose which one to receive, Reviews or Kitchen Stories. You may even want both. Besides the post rundown, there will be recipes and stories that are only available on the newsletter.

So, please take this opportunity to join my newsletter. You can always unsubscribe later if you want.

Also, starting this week, I’ll be updating older posts and reposting them. Along the way, I plan to standardize the layout of the posts. The author biographies will now be found on the series page. Clicking on the “About the Author” graphic will lead you to the page.

Box sets will be linked to the individual books so you can read my review of them individually.

Chasing Magic – The Last Witch Coven Book 1

Chasing Magic
The Last Witch Coven Book 1
by Rachel Medhurst
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
An elemental witch with limited magic falls in love with a human. Standard really.
My story is a typical one. Girl meets boy, drama ensues, and the warlocks try to kill me. Okay, maybe not so typical. And yet, it’s on point. My whole life, I’ve been one of eight members left in the last witch coven. Cursed to continually revisit the earth until all eight of us unite with our soul match in one lifetime, we fight the warlocks in order to reawaken magic before the witches finally die out.
Antony is my hunky bodyguard, assigned to me by the last witch elder. When I’m kidnapped by the warlocks, he stops at nothing to find me, even though he’s in complete denial about our connection. Still, can’t blame a guy for freaking out when he finds out that he’s a witch, destined to be my soul match. Only time will tell if we’re able to fulfil our fate or will magic fade, along with my happiness?
THIS BOOK WAS PREVIOUSLY CALLED PISCES – ZODIAC TWIN FLAME BOOK 1. IT HAS BEEN REWORKED AND EDITED
**Only .99 cents**

This is an author that is new to me, but I like her style. The book was so well written that I actually sat and read it all in one setting. Once upon a time, that was my normal, but not any more. So for me to say that it caught my interest is saying something.

There were times when I wanted to smack Antony along side his head and tell him to WAKE UP! There were times when I wanted to tell the entire family to “Get A Grip!” Those points could get really frustrating for me.

Chasing Warlocks
The Last Witch Coven Book 2
Bring magic back to earth? Easy peasy. Until my life gets blown apart. Literally.
With a witch elder missing, and a mission to complete, I’m in the perfect position to plan a counter attack on the warlocks. That’s until a disaster at work rips my world apart, leaving me defenceless against our enemy.
My ex-girlfriend Natalie is determined to get me back on my feet, pushing me to become a better witch in order to fight the warlocks and find my soul-match. If I don’t embrace the new me, my magic will fade along with my chance at being happy.
THIS BOOK USED TO BE CALLED ARIES – BOOK 2 IN THE ZODIAC TWIN FLAME SERIES. IT’S BEEN REWORKED AND EDITED.
**Only .99 cents**
