The Hum and the Shiver by Alex Bledsoe

I'm just saying... you should read this book!

 My Review:

It has been a long while since I've read a book that I really loved. I have to say that this is one of them. I've been stalking this book for months, waiting for it to go on sale, and then my dreams came true and it did. The Kindle edition is on sale for $2.99 for a limited time!
Even as I sit here and write this I don't want to be done reading this book. I'm sad it's over. The author created a likeable story with the mystery of the Tufa was compelling and I couldn't put the book down. I'm so glad this wasn't a typical fantasy/faerie story. I really liked Bronwyn's character being a war hero and the setting is easy to relate to current times. The one thing I would have liked was more description with the songs and the music that the Tufa hummed, I wanted a little more than just lyrics, I wanted to feel the songs, but I guess leaving that out contributed further to the mystery. And I love the cover.

Happy Nurses Week!

It's National Nurses Week! 

And you know what that means.... nothing really. 
I know, it's kind of anticlimactic, but, such is a nurses life.

We will still go to work, we will still take care of patients, 
and if we are lucky the shift-differential will actually show up in our paychecks.

When I'm not doing all of the other things that I do, 
I am a NICU nurse, 
and I work with some of the smartest, funniest, most caring individuals on this earth!

So Happy Nurses Week Ladies and Gentlemen!

I do hope you all enjoy this montage of hilarious nursing jokes:

On Choosing a Vampire...

When I'm thinking about what I want to write next I take a quick scan of the top selling books on Amazon. It's easy to see that the top 100 science fiction eBooks on Amazon that paranormal fiction is not dead.

And sometimes I feel this urge to jump on the bandwagon and sell-out and write some magnificently horrible story about Vampires and love...

And then I think to myself: Which Vampire would I choose, there's so many!

And then I laugh to myself. This will never happen.
