Behind The Blogger ~ The Lucky One #BehindTheBlogger

The Lucky One ~ I am not usually that lucky. However as I type this I am sitting in a hotel room at Foxwoods Casino. How lucky am I that I can go for day trips with my loved ones and have a good time. I also have to admit that I do have a few lucky charms, I used to work at a gift shop that sold figurines and all sorts of things. Including Beanie Babies! I had finally gotten my license on the fourth try and was just starting to drive, A Boyd's Bear figurine was released of a guardian angel holding a car! I had to have her!

Since 2000 she has been attached by Velcro to my dashboard. She has also switched cars, She is my lucky driving angel. Her name is Carrie-B-Safe!
I can't drive without her, It was meant to be that she was released just after I got my license! Seventeen years later she is still in my car! What are your lucky charms?
Even though I am not really a lucky person, I try to bring myself as much good luck as possible. If I had to guess what my luckiest day was, it would be the day I won $1000 on a lottery ticket!
I also have a great family that I love very much! So I guess I am the lucky one!

  1. Hi,

            I thought you'd might enjoy a free advanced release e-copy of the brand new comedy fantasy sci-fi "11,984."  This is not a conventional novel. It contains a lot of creative innovations, including punctuation from the future. 

            Thousands of years in the future, humanity has finally eradicated war, poverty, and all forms of human suffering. With no problems or unanswered questions remaining in the world, everyone is bored out of their minds, that is until the sun starts putting on a light show, the first warning sign it's getting ready to supernova!

           Our heroes from the year 11,984 are your typical family of two mothers, three fathers, a couple of kids, and plenty of robots. Fun-loving Troll, so called because of her giant troll doll hair(They don't have names in the future, or wear clothes) is the world's leading hydrologist/interior decorator, whose plans to retire quickly change when faced with the drought to end all droughts. Bulb, bald head glowing like a lightbulb, is the cranky Minister of Rational Thought. His faith in science is tested by the total collapse of society. Last but not least is Litterbot, the clumsy garbagebot who gets no respect, and whose highest priority--to clean--is frustrated by a world without messes. 

           As the family works on building an escape spaceship, the sun bombards them in changing colors, which unbeknownst to them causes radiation insanity. The sky colors keep growing stronger, and these totally peaceful people are at each other's throats. It gets so bad their bodies mutate (which helps them work faster) and world computer crashes (forcing them to read primitive paper books, and rely more on Litterbot.) Will they launch before getting smashed to pieces? 

          My first humor novel, Foxavier and Plinka, was published in 2013, and is also available.

    May I email the complete 11,984 manuscript of 75,000 words?

    Thank you.
