Remembering Pearl Harbor

image

My Grandpa John Woodall could hardly speak of this war that the United States entered into after the attack on Pearl Harbor! Let us never forget the sacrifices, the bravery and the honor of those who served after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Never forget the lives lost during the attack and the call of action that was declared that those men did not die in vain. God Bless our brave soldiers!

****Eisenhower, commander of allied troops in Europe, delivered this message to allied forces just before they embarked on the Normandy invasion on June 6, 1944:
“Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you.”****

Plagiarism dealt with! Not by wattpad, but by readers & editor!

Thank you is just a,simple word for an author of a book series to use in regard to their work being plagiarized!
If wasn’t for the editor of the series and the loyal readers that took this serious offense to heart, I believe I still would be fighting for the rights to my book. I’ll let the images I post speak for themselves!

Now, let’s get back to the REAL DEAL! Getting Ancient Guardians Book III PUBLISHED!!!!

Before He was Superman…..

image

Most authors, as well as readers, have visual images of who they see as their characters…and I did the same thing.
As I wrote, “Ancient Guardians: The Legacy of the Key” I had an image of my main hero character. At the time, he wasn’t known throughout the world, until Man of Steel hit the silver screen! As I wrote my manuscript, this man… Henry Cavill was the only person I could relate to Levi…not only by certain looks he had, but his personality nearly fit Levi Oxley’s perfectly. A perfect gentleman, chivalry and most of all loyalty! Now, don’t get me wrong…before you hit Google of images of him, I have to say, there are only certain pictures of him that resemble Levi.
Anyway as I worked hard on writing, editing and preparing my book to be published, I was informed that there was a fangirl following and rooting for him to be the lead character in the best selling book series 50 Shades of Grey. (Have not read it, but from what I learned…definitely NOT Levi. Then another following for him to play in another erotica book series if it became a movie. With all this said, I had to let go of this image of Henry as Levi. There was no way I would associate him with the book as there were other well known book readers obsessed with him as their lead man! Perfectly fine!
And then came…Man of Steel! Mr. Cavill was now known around the world as Superman. Following this actor before this incredible breakthrough for him, made me so happy that he finally did it! He not only was known around the world, but he landed one of his dream roles…Superman! Way to go, Henry!
So, by chance and with great surprise, I came across another actor that really hasn’t had “the breakthrough” yet. Amazingly, he fits my image of Levi Oxley perfectly!
Well now that I’ve let the cat out of the bag…I’ll give some images of what I saw as Levi through Henry Cavill! Enjoy.

Make sure you keep up, Man of Steel 2, Batman vs Superman comes out soon!

New updates! Ancient Guardians Book 3 and more…

First of all, to my surprise…my fictional character, Harrison, just became “nonfiction!” As if he doesn’t give me enough trouble documenting his, Reece and Levi’s story…he goes and blows his cover! Now he’s on Facebook and when he’s on Earth, there is no telling what other social media sites he’ll randomly show up on! He better not give any secrets away!!! 👿

Harrison's new FB account

And now for a little sneak peek into my favorite book in the Ancient Guardians Series! Book III 🙂

image

Will the Guardian warriors risk everything they are known for to recover what is theirs? Book III brings us more thrills, adventures as we follow the Pemdai warriors as they journey into the unknown….You will not want to miss this third installment of the series, as Levi and Reece’s love grows stronger and Harrison steps up into a main character roll with them!
Still under edits and revisions, and hoping for a late 2014 release!
I promise to keep everyone who is excited for Book 3 in the Ancient Guardians series updated on release dates!

Happy Saturday!!!!

Teaching my daughter to overcome life’s obstacles…the fun way!

Yesterday we experienced a torrential downpour from out of nowhere! It was sunny one minute, omnious clouds and an incredible downpour the next.

My daughter stood staring out of the window watching the rain pouring down in awe. Amused at the sight of her, I came up from behind her and whispered, “Are you afraid to go outside?” She answered, “Yeah! It’s pouring rain and I’d get wet. Look, mom, the streets are already flooding!”

I laughed and softly sighed. Then said, “It looks like it’s time to go dance in the rain!

She looked at me like I was crazy.

I gave her a quick kiss and said, “We’re going to dance in the rain…go get the camera!”
Disclaimer: There was no thunder or lightning associated with this downpour!
The pictures below show our fun of dancing in the rain! The pictures may not show it, but it really was a torrential downpour!

     She didn’t think I was going to do it.

image

….but I did! Give me a downpour and I will be out, dancing in it!!!

Liberation 🙂

image

She laughed the entire time… Watching her crazy mom dance around, soaking herself in the rain…
Then I challenged her: You coming???

image

She screamed in delight, practically threw the camera and ran out into the rain….

I hope everyone feels the same! Life is too short to hide from the troubles it brings our way! We have to learn to find humor in the hard times, so that we can get through them and learn from them!

Happy Mother’s Day…as it backfires on me ;-)

image

Mothers Day is turning out to be everything I didn’t think it would be! Jaci decides to join me on a shopping trip to the grocery store…

Dad gives her free choice of anything in the store for her to pick out for Mom on mother’s day! Well, when you walk my daughter through a million beautiful displays of flowers…she’s going to pick those!

I managed to convince her, that it’s a waste of money, they will die and Dad already bought me a beautiful ring! My idea: I’ll take a picture with the display and it will last longer and we’ll consider them to be ALL MINE! IT WORKED!

image
Blurry, but they were all mine

Then we came across a particular type of flower and she just had to say: “Mom, they’re colorful flowers like the ones in your book! We HAVE to get them!”

image

Great! She just had to compare them to the unique flowers in Pemdas! So, Jaci wins….

image

She was so happy I gave in, she buckled them up! I had to snap a picture!

So, here I am with my beautiful flowers from the weeds of Pasidian Palace’s gardens and Jaci!!!

image

image

My oldest son appreciating the fact that Jaci pulled one over on Mom!!! Gotta love my fun little family!

Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mom’s out there! We do deserve the best! And Happy Mother’s day to my Mom, without her I would definitely would have never had the courage to play with my creativity and one day write a book series!

image

Me and my beautiful Mom! Wish I could spend Mother’s day with her…sending love all the way from Texas to the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California! Love ya, Mom!
