The Patsy

My first novella, The Patsy is now on Kindle.  In light of the Autumn Equinox, on September 22, 2012 you can get a free copy. Now that days get shorter and the nights longer and colder, it's a good time to enjoy a good read.


Happy Mabon or Autumn Equinox!

Other names for this holiday are Alban Elved and Harvest Fest. Mabon is named in honor of Queen Mab of the faeries.

It's the time of balance and harmony of solar and lunar energies, when the light and dark are at equal lengths before the dark side of the year commences. It's the end of harvest, a time when the days start getting shorter, leaves die and animals begin their storage of food to prepare for winter and when we start turning inward to our inner places for introspection and meditation.

The equinox falls within the month of the Reed (tree calendar), it tells us that it's time for direct action, to focus towards what you desire and your intentions of your goals till year’s end.

Today is all about the end of harvest and preparing for winter. Nuts, grain, pumpkins are all gathered and stored along with our memories, feelings, accomplishments and failures of the year, all stored in our inner spaces for our evaluation in the coming months.

Enjoy the day's peace and harmony.

Happy Equinox

The Reading

Here's an excerpt of my short story, The Reading, that is available on NOOK.
A story of mystery and suspense with a touch of the occult.

Ben looked down the hallway making sure no one was around.

“Richie, I need you to cover for me this morning while I go see Rosen.”
”Sure, but what’s up?”
Ben thought a second.
”Ok, I’ve been having these strange dreams about choking someone ever since we went out last week.  I think I’m going nuts.”

Richie sat back in his chair.
”Really?” he laughed
”You didn’t believe anything she told you, did you?”
He ran his hand through his black hair and laughed again, tilting forward in his chair.
”Man, we were really drunk!”

He laughed again, tilting back causing the images on the computer screen to mirror across the lenses of his black rimmed glasses.  Looking at Ben’s dead panned face he realized the seriousness.

“Come on Ben, in all of the years we’ve know each other you never believed in any of that psychic shit, so what’s the real problem, maybe I can help.”

“I don’t know I just started having this dream almost every night.  Rosen said that it must have been something Madame Lena said, but I can’t remember.  Do you recall anything?” '

Enjoy the read!
