Musa Memorial Day Blog Hop

I am happy to take part in the Musa Publishing Memorial Day Blog Hop, where you can meet lots of other authors and win prizes, including books! Lots of books.

First let me take this moment to offer my gratitude to all the men and women serving our country, both now and in the past. I am very aware that freedom isn't free, and you have my total respect for all that you put on the line, day and night, in order to preserve the freedoms that we take for granted in this country. Happy Memorial Day, and a huge Thank You, to each and every one you.



Now to the Blog Hop. Every one of the links below should offer some sort of prize. In my case, it's a copy of one of my new eBooks from Musa Publishing. You have your choice of The Girl Who Remembered Horses, or Six Degrees of Lost (which will be available June 1, 2012.)


On of the characters in Six Degrees of Lost is a fourteen-year-old boy named David, who comes from a military family. His two older brothers are currently serving overseas, and his family expects him to apply to the Air Force Academy. David feels like his future is already set in stone, and is struggling with his decision. Here's a short synopis:

Olive’s mother is headed to jail and her brother to join the Army, so thirteen-year-old Olive is uprooted from sunny California and dumped in Washington state like a stray. That's exactly what she feels like surrounded by her aunt’s collection of homeless dogs, cats, and horses.

Fourteen-year-old David’s future is already carved in stone. From a military family with two brothers serving overseas, he’s been pointed towards the Air Force Academy his entire life - but a rafting trip gone awry might ruin his chances.

When a runaway dog is almost hit by a car, the search for its owner leads Olive and David, two kids from entirely different backgrounds, to an unlikely bond. Will their growing attraction to each other be enough to keep Olive from a foolhardy journey to find her mother? Will David risk his family’s plans to save her?

This hop is turning out to be so much fun. Olivia and David sound like an interesting match, but I still want to read The Girl Who Remembered Horses. That would definitely be my first choice. I hope this new one is a huge success, Linda.
