Things are shakin' on the 4th of July!
          	Southern California just experienced a 6.4 earthquake, centered near Ridgecrest, in the Mojave Desert. I live near the coast, about 150 miles away, and it felt like a long, rolling one, with the hanging lamps and plants swaying for a minute or so. Strongest one I've felt for awhile. Better excitement than fireworks! Happy Independence Day!

On hiatus for a few weeks!
          It's time to stop writing adventures for a bit and go actually live one, so I'm heading off on a road trip with fun-loving relatives, leading up to a Caribbean adventure on the seas. I'll catch up with reading and feedback about the third week in May. (And maybe I'll come back with some fresh story ideas, too!)

@kenwallin I’m on chapter 6 of Mountains of the Macaw. So far, I’m really liking this chapter. Mitch and Amanda are clearly portrayed characters. On the river, passing the mining boat with gunmen, etc. You paint a clear picture of the jungle, the river, and setting in general. Sometimes, I want to comment like I’m reading it on Wattpad, then I remember that I’m not.

          Great news! I’m pleased to announce that Mountains of the Macaw has finally been released and is now available on Amazon in both e-book and paperback formats. In every macaw’s life, the time must come to leave the safety of the friendly forests of Wattpadia and brave the wild jungles of Amazonland.
          As a thank you, it will be free for the first five days only, today through Sunday. Here on Wattpad, I'll leave the first three chapters up, with links to the page on Amazon. And thank all of you so much for your support, encouragement, kind words and feedback on Mountains of the Macaw and on all my works posted here. I couldn’t do it without you.

Free Book Promotion!
          
          In anticipation of the upcoming release of Mountains of the Macaw, I'm running a free promotion on my previous novel, Falling to Eden, announcing it here on Wattpad, as a thank-you for all the support, encouragement and feedback I have been given on Mountains of the Macaw and all my works posted here. The promotion runs today through Sunday, so feel free to pick up a copy and enjoy! (A review is always nice, too.)
          Here's the blurb:
           In September 1941, there were places still untouched by time, where a man could believe in miracles, if only he were willing . . .
            Set in the jungles of Borneo in a time when there were still blank spots on the map, Falling to Eden is a tale not only of adventure, but of self-discovery. It is about overcoming adversity, learning to love again after a great loss, and more importantly, learning to live again.
            When their plane crashes on a remote river, adventure novelist Dane McKenna, oil heiress Violet Delacroix and her son must make their way to safety, complicated by Dane's polio, his lingering grief over his late wife, and Violet's memories of an abusive husband. In a wild, unknown land, Dane is suddenly forced to live one of the adventures he's only written about before. Braving not only the country's dangers, but their own inner demons, their voyage becomes an inner journey as well as a physical one, as each comes to grips with their pasts and contemplates their futures.
           And here's the link:
