[Recall the theme, if you will: an animal, an amusement and an author/book]
I had a tough time here... I'm really a cat person. But I find Chinchillas fascinating. My best friend housesat one once... she thought it was sick, as it just sat there all day... then her dad came to stay for the weekend... in the chinchilla's room... and she learned they really are just nocturnal...
They are the size of a smallish rabbit, and SUPER soft like that, but with curly tails and mousy ears...
Oh scary monster, how I love you... especially when somebody makes mockery of your badassness and turns you into a cute little thing...
I am a huge fan of HP Lovecraft... not his writing so much—he reads like a clinician—but his imagination was FABULOUS. He is the granddaddy of modern horror and one of his most frightening creations is the great sea monster... head of a squid, but with a man-like torso, claws and wings. EEEEEEEK!
But then I really love this version even better...
It's just the way I roll... delicious contradictions...
And FINALLY... Yesterday was a special book release, but I'm talking about it TODAY, because Both CAROL and COMPASS start with C!!! I read Carol's first book, IN NAME ONLY, and it was fabulous, I look forward to this one!
SOLOMAN'S COMPASS by Carol Kilgore
Full Blurb and Bio
A missing belt—her uncle’s prized possession. The lure of buried treasure. And a sexy former SEAL who makes U.S. Coast Guard Commander Taylor Campbell crazy. What more could any woman want. Right?
Taylor is in Rock Harbor, Texas, on a quest to unearth her uncle’s treasure—a journey far outside the realm of her real life. There’s one glitch. Taylor's certain the buried treasure was all in Uncle Randy's dementia-riddled mind. Now he’s dead.
Former SEAL Jake Solomon is in Rock Harbor under false pretenses to protect Taylor from the fate that befell her uncle and the other members of a tight circle of Coast Guardsmen called the Compass Points who served together on Point boats in Vietnam.
Jake is definitely not supposed to become involved with Taylor. That was his first mistake. Taylor is attracted to Jake as well, but she refuses to wait for him to locate the killer when she knows her plan will force her uncle’s murderer into action.
But the killer's actions are just what Jake is afraid of.
SOLOMON’S COMPASS is available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle.
