Quotes, Reviews, and Tornados

This is going to be quick, so hold on to your shorts...

I was very honored to have a quote included in an article for the Huffington Post. Big thanks to Martin Perry for giving me the chance to spout my thoughts as if they are important ;)  Seriously, though, I think it is pretty cool. If you would like to check it out, click here.

My very first blog review is up! Stop by Tigers All Consuming Books, comment, and follow. She has a very insightful blog full of well thought out reviews. I really appreciate the time she took to read my book and give an honest review. I can't say this enough: Book bloggers make the world go around. Seriously. If they stop telling people what to read, the Earth will fall off it's axis. I'm so not joking here. So, be kind to your favorite book bloggers: show them love, comment, and follow.

Today has been a whirlwind. (Lame pun. Har har.) A small tornado came though my neighborhood and completely destroyed the wooden fence in the backyard. (Now you get the bad pun... go ahead and groan. I did.) It ripped off the gates (Huge, heavy gates) and flung them across the street into a neighbors yard. It ripped off a lot of the siding from the house and flung it around the subdivision. Thank God, no one was hurt. It was a terrifying afternoon with my toddler tucked up next to me under a pile of pillows in the hallway. That low, but loud whump,whump sound reverberating through the house as I attempted to calm the munchkin by playing peek-a-boo with all of the pillows. We were so very lucky. Things could have been much worse than they turned out to be. As it is, most of the damage was superficial. My daughter and I were unhurt. My dogs were unhurt. Somehow, the flying gates of hell missed the cars that were sitting in the driveway 15 feet from where gate posts were cemented into the ground.

I'm sorry this is short and abrupt, but I am exhausted after this afternoon. I have a few things to do, but I am calling it an early night. I hope you all are safe and had a wonderful weekend.
