Happy Leap Day!

Still in the middle of chemo and the tank’s a little dry.

So, just reminding you that this day comes only once every four years. So your social media will ignore what you did today for another three years. Make a leap today out of your comfort zone. I won’t tell anybody.

“This calls for a truly stupid act!” battle cry of Chameleon, leader of the Fighting Lizards.

Economical Squirrels

Readers definitely get tired of hearing indie authors shouting “Buy my book!”.  “Buy my book CHEAP!” is a slightly different story.

Thanx to the people at Hydra Publications, the ebook of “Squirrel Apocalypse” will be available for 99 cents from today through Feb. 23. You can stuff your Kindle with marijuana, gang violence, & GMO killer squirrels. What more do you need for the Presidents Day Weekend?

As always, remember to review if you like it. If you don’t like it, pretend it never happened. Link below:

This is as close as I can get to be two places at once, especially as I am still be treated for colorectal cancer. I am betting by then I will be on my feet and just as strange as ever. See you there.

Happy Imbolc

Happy Imbolc, Candlemas, or St. Brigid’s Day. It’s one of the pagan high holidays that’s been absorbed into folk tradition and religion. A time for light in the darkness and looking to the future. First fire from the hearth or first water from the well gifts a maiden with a vision of their future husband. People in North America obsess on the predictive skills of large rodents. I look forward to the halfway point in my chemotherapy.

Things are looking dark, Warriors of Every Stripe, but the advantage of reaching Things Can’t Get Any Worse (For Goddess’ Sake, don’t say that out loud. The universe takes it as a challenge.) is you also hit Things Can Be Made Better. I won’t blow smoke up you skirts, but things aren’t as dark as we fear.

Speaking of darkness, this is my latest blipvert for Power Tools in the Sacred Grove, where Jeremiah leaves a phone message from the Great Beyond.
