As an heiress to a Texas oil baron, Susannah Gibson’s future is secure. A hefty trust fund has allowed her to live out her dreams and pursue every desire of her heart but one.

Wednesday's Words for May 30, 2012

Growing up, I was one of the kids who always got picked last for whatever games were played in our schoolyard. On top of that, I attended a three-room school from grade 1 to grade 5. In one room were grades 1 to 4, in another, grades 5 to 8. The third room was used for music class (read dancing, mostly), and our country-school version of phys-ed—until the last year I was there, when it became the “special education” class.

Four grades, one teacher, it’s no wonder, then, that I learned how to get by on my own at an early age. There wasn’t a lot of structure to my early life at any rate. My dad died when I was 8, so again, I was left to my own devices a lot. I had school and I had home, and because we lived out in the sticks, that was about it. If I complained about being bored, I got put to work. I made my own fun, and wasn’t allowed to stay inside on a Saturday or Sunday if the weather was decent.

Of course, it was a different world, and really, I don’t think I would like to see us return to the way things were back then, fifty or so years ago. I’m intelligent enough to understand that while those times seem “better” to me on occasion, I’m peering at them through the prism of what I’ll call “filtered” memory.

No human rights, no medical coverage, and certainly even less sense of world security then than now (duck and cover, remember?) They weren’t really kinder, gentler times at all.

I never really wanted to turn into one of those older people who lamented that “back in my day things were so much better”. But I’ve discovered that I have from time to time, and mostly only when I seem confounded by the pace and the mores of life today.

Every generation takes its turn at the wheel, with the generation that preceded it becoming back seat drivers—and the one coming up whining for the keys to the car.

I do my best to keep up with modern technology. But I have to tell you, there are times when I find it a real challenge.

There are some things that I think are wonderful, and a few things I think are lacking.

Sometimes I think I spend far too much time at my computer. It’s easy to do. I try to write at least 1,000 words a day, but really would be happier to triple that figure. That takes effort, and how much depends on the fickle moods of my muse—and my degree of discipline.

I would be lying to you if I were to tell you that I keep a sharp focus throughout the day. Sadly, I’m weak, and get distracted easily. I like to look around on Face Book, and I like to play a few games here and there.

I think there is a danger in spending too much time with online friends and not enough with face-to-face friends. I think parents need to monitor not only what their kids are doing online, but how long they are doing it each day. I worry not just about the fact these children aren’t getting exercise; I worry that they get their heads too far into the ‘virtual’ world, at the detriment of their ability to learn to cope with the real one.

However, were it not for this modern technology, I seriously don’t have a clue what my life would be like now.

Long before I began to make a living with my writing – and through this modern technology, I might add – I thought the internet a Godsend for those people who were mobility-challenged. My first experiences on line were in “free game rooms”. I’d go and play bingo, and chat, and there were so many elderly people in those game rooms who were thrilled to be communicating with others. For them, their computers represented their entire social life, especially those who were “shut-ins”.

For the most part, I believe that, despite “text speak” and the various and sundry short forms we see like LOL and IMO, using a computer does help the cause of literacy. As far as I’ve seen, this is well and good, with this one exception—and this is a pet peeve of mine.

My grandchildren can’t read what the schools these days call “cursive” communication—what we referred to back in my day as “writing” , which was as opposed to “printing”.

And I’m wondering if that sort of writing will become a lost art.

Angelic Forecast ~ #195

"Hyper-dimensional physics as the one you know as Richard Hoagland would label it. It is an energy field that can be used to manipulate the minds of everyone present. Actually, the field has various uses."

"It's a worldwide broadcasting system for evil, isn't it?" I ask, as the knowing seizes my very being.

"Yes, my Sh’raka. That is the plan. However, as I spoke, there is a battle between the Good forces and the dark ones being waged for ultimate control of this universal broadcasting system."

"And that's where a stargate bridge from Mars, pyramid to pyramid... oh, I'm lost. Except if any worldwide mind-bending is to be done, why not for the sake of Good?"

"Precisely, my one. Once your energy completes the stargate between the pyramids that will assist the Good forces."

"Oh." I tremble, both with fear and excitement. Could I really be a link, a link between Mars and Earth?

Dhuroth reaches for my hand, enfolding it tenderly within his. "My beautiful woman, I will speak my earlier words to you. 'Your energy is of the Earth yet now your energies are beyond Earth.'"

My lion man draws me closer, and his gaze captures my soul. "You are the connection, my beloved. Your compassionate heart is the bridge of good that is required to create the stargate bridge."



The TIME OF ACTIVATION is here. The following week is about activating the extraordinary in everyone. For at this time, heavenly frequencies rain down on humankind like a superstorm. These diamond-sparkling energies will only continue, and will be adjusted to assist each one of us as future challenges unfold.

On the personal front, there is a raging thirst within your being to live anew, to create your life differently. Drink in these 'activating' frequencies by mentally accepting this gift from the Divine, and you will discover new trails to blaze. This is also the time to look at your personal genetic roots, to draw strength from your ancestors and your ancestral culture -- every heritage within you.

On the paranormal front, hold onto your hats for the next several months. There will be an 'explosive volcanic eruption' of new information and truth. That is, if you keep an eye on the alternative media sites. This is *one* reason every effort is being made by 'those' across the world, who are allied with the military industrial complex, to shut down freedom on the internet. As well, they are centralizing their control over the brain-drain media even more than before.

On the economic front, all hell breaks loose in several financial arenas. 'Hell, no! We won't pay' will become the mantra in several countries that have been diabolically driven to the edge. The resistance to the bankster gangster regime is on, and gaining strength on the home front, as well as in many European nations. Within the next two weeks, the dollar will likely take a beating after being propped up. To counter the public's fear of a bank run, there will be some 'moves' by the evil powers-that-be to improve certain sectors of the economy while belittling anyone who tells the truth.

On the truth front, during the month of June 'truth' comes down on humanity like Thor's hammer. At the same time, the fierce and righteous dragon energy of 2012 spins around evildoers, revealing them for all to see.

On the AWAKENING front, a huge shift in AWARENESS occurs this week. This is most easily observed by how the global controllers react. Watch where and how 'they' tighten the noose on humanity. For, that will be the 'awareness' the soulless ones battle. Meanwhile, resistance to any form of tyranny continues to rise across the globe. The word 'freedom' sings from the hearts and souls of many, and this energetic symphony surrounds each one of us -- and surrounds Mother Earth.

On the war front, likely several surprise events will occur during the next two months as war-machine pieces are moved on the global chessboard by both the demonic side and the angelic side. This is a reflection of the intensifying war in the heavens between Good and evil -- as is the massive sightings of UFOs that have been occurring worldwide for the last several years.

On the food front, with an heirloom food revival happening across our beloved country, the giant corporations will be using their 'brute muscle' to shut it down. One of the best strategies is to ignore any 'insane' dictates. Keep saving and trading seeds on a local basis, and create an 'underground' community as fast as possible. Heirloom seeds are the future.

On the land changes front, due to the energies being fired by the sun, volcanoes are being activated on a large scale. More and more eruptions are taking place in the depths of the oceans. Also, predictions are being made for major earthquakes from this point until mid-September. As well, more superstorms are on the way. Beware, take care, and as always, prepare.

On the really bad news front, like mountains tumbling into the sea 'what was' is coming down from this point onward. This is due to the global machinations of the dark side, as well as the new vibrations of the Aquarian Age. Catastrophes loom for the rest of the year, both natural and manmade. It's time to bring forth your fortitude, your strength of character, and take care of yourself and your precious loved ones.

Trendwise, at this juncture, with the crackdown on weapons' ownership, and the planned elimination of the second amendment, a new class of entrepreneur will rise, and fast. They will invent and sell innovative weapons systems far superior to what exists currently. There will be no shortage of buyers.

From the prior forecast: "The following week will be explosive ~ from actual explosions to explosive events taking place all over the world. For, the human spirit will no longer tolerate any form of enslavement." ~ Followup note: While actual explosions took place in several areas, they were below the news radar of most people. The real explosiveness was in the stunning amount of hidden truths revealed last week.

This week take a look at yourself. What can you give yourself or do for yourself that would be a treat? As well, treat others to something fun and entertaining.

Is it really possible to keep things Strictly Business?

I am very excited to see Strictly Business has finally pre-released for advance orders on the Siren Booksite. It was the brainchild of four of us Siren authors and came out of a lot of emails and one very fun afternoon lunch where we came up with the idea that four sisters would have an ultimatum of getting pregnant or they would be flat broke.

They are all very smart, intelligent women that have focused on their careers and not their hearts.

But even with this kind of ultimatum, they think they can get out of marriage if they can just find a stud willing to help them make a baby. This is far from the truth.

When it comes to my body, it is difficult to keep my heart out of it. So, I couldn't picture the heroine I was writing (Susannah) any other way. She may be headstrong, and logical like a scientist almost always is, but she still believes in romance at heart. She believes in love and really needs to be loved for who she is, not because of her family's fortune and who her daddy is.

I have to admit that I loved writing this book, it was really fun and it makes it that much more exhilarating to see that it has finally made it out to the general public. :) Yay me!

Anyway, in case you missed it on the release day, this is a little more about the book:

As an heiress to a Texas oil baron, Susannah Gibson’s future is secure. A hefty trust fund has allowed her to live out her dreams and pursue every desire of her heart but one. All that money got in the way of finding love. She had a collection of fortune hunters that could stretch the length of Texas, but she wouldn’t settle for anything less than love.
Susannah needs a suitable stud fast. Time is running out for her parents' ultimatum—give them grandchildren or lose her trust fund.
Some guys have all the luck. On a business trip to the Caribbean, Colt Vance is propositioned by a beautiful woman, every guys’ dream date. Red. Hot. Sex. No strings attached. The problem? The more he knows about her, the more intrigued and less willing he is to keep things strictly business and let her go at the end of their bargain

You can get your copy 10% until June 7 here:

Book 1 - Strictly Professional by Sandy Sullivan

Book 2 - Strictly Accountable by Tonya Ramagos

Book 3 - Strictly Business by Missy Lyons

What do you think? Is it possible to keep things strictly business or do you agree with me that it's hard to separate sexual attraction from the heart? Usually with my characters anyway, once the characters act out their sexual attraction, their hearts tend to follow soon after. For me, it's hard to separate sex from love. They go hand in hand together.

It's like strawberries just taste better when dipped in chocolate.

Lots of love,

4 days – 4 books in honor of Lt. Michael Murphy, fallen USN SEAL

On June 28, 2005 our nation suffered a great loss, as Operation Red Wing took 11 Navy SEALs and 8 Army Night Stalkers from us.  Many of you may have heard of the one remaining survivor and US Navy SEAL, Marcus Luttrell who penned the book Lone Survivor giving his account of what he and his team went through during the ordeal, however just recently more people have become aware of Lt. Michael Murphy who led the SEAL team that day in an effort to  kill or capture Ahmad Shah, a Taliban leader.  Lt. Murphy, known by some as "Murph" is being remembered in a book by Gary Williams, SEAL of Honor and more recently was honored by having the newest Naval Destroyer, USS Michael Murphy DDG 112 named after him.  Lt. Murphy was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life and above and beyond the call of duty.  While the memory of Lt. Murphy will live on in his family, friends and team members, he serves as a reminder to many of us that our U.S. Military puts their country before self and are willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms and liberties.

With that being said, there is an annual fundraiser known as Memorial Day Murph and this year marks the 2nd annual event. The workout which is dubbed "Murph" was originally called  "Body Armor" and was said to be Lt. Murphy's favorite workout.  The workout consists of (in this order): 1 mile Run, 100 Pull-ups, 200 Push-ups, 300 Squats, and lastly 1 mile Run with body armor.  There are four organizations which will benefit from this fundraiser.  They are:

Now, to my purpose behind this entry...For those of you who know my writing, you are aware that I have written four books about Navy SEALs, which I refer to as my Sweet Awakenings Series. And for those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook you also known that I am a proud military supporter and feel strongly about supporting our troops and veterans in any way that we can. Therefore, May 24, 2012 through May 27, 2012 (4 days) 100% of my author royalties of any of my SEAL eBooks purchased directly from my publisher's site (links provided below) as well as any SEAL paper back's purchased from Barnes & Noble or Amazon (links provided below) will be donated to Memorial Day Murph. I will have the transactions monitored by a 3rd party so we can all be assured that the funds are being handled appropriately.  Please see special instructions below for paperback purchases.
  • On paperback purchases I will need you to email me a copy of your receipts to: as those do not update in real time and I may not get those sales numbers for as much as 30 days.

Click on each corresponding book cover
for purchase links in ALL format options



I hope to see many sales during these four days so the donation amount is substantial.  Thank you all for taking the time to read this and stop by. And remember, whenever you have the opportunity express your gratitude to our Armed Forces for their continued sacrifice. 

If you are not interested in purchasing one of my books, but would still love to support the cause behind Memorial Day Murph, please click on the image below and go to the Memorial Day Murph website and register or donate.
