A Change of Mind Cover Reveal!

Today, I'm helping out fellow blogger friend Nick Wilford with his cover reveal.  I'm so excited that he has a book out!  It sounds like a great collection of stories!  Congratulations Nick!!

Title: A Change of Mind and Other Stories
Author: Nick Wilford
Genre: Contemporary speculative fiction
Cover Design: Rebekah Romani
Release Date: May 25th 2015

A Change of Mind and Other Stories consists of a novella, four short stories and one flash fiction piece. This collection puts the extremes of human behaviour under the microscope with the help of lashings of dark humour, and includes four pieces previously published in Writer’s Muse magazine.

In A Change of Mind, Reuben is an office worker so meek and mild he puts up with daily bullying from his boorish male colleagues as if it’s just a normal part of his day. But when a stranger points him in the direction of a surgeon offering a revolutionary new procedure, he can’t pass up the chance to turn his life around.

But this isn’t your average surgeon. For a start, he operates alone in a small room above a mechanic’s. And he promises to alter his patients’ personality so they can be anything they want to be…

In Marissa, a man who is determined to find evidence of his girlfriend’s infidelity ends up wondering if he should have left well alone.

The Dog God finds a chink in the armour of a man with a megalomaniacal desire to take over the world.

In The Insomniac, a man who leads an obsessively regimented lifestyle on one hour’s sleep a night finds a disruption to his routine doesn’t work for him.

Hole In One sees a dedicated golfer achieving a lifelong ambition.

The Loner ends the collection on a note of hope as two family members try to rebuild their lives after they are torn apart by jealousy.

Thank You So Much!

Here's a springy bouquet of lilacs from Skagway, Alaska to say thank you! :)

Thank you!

My family and I were so touched and overwhelmed by all the wonderful comments and well wishes for Jess in the Blog Blitz!  I can't thank you enough or fully express how much it meant to both Jess and me.  

Thank you DL Hammons, for starting the Blog Blitz campaign and making people's days just a little brighter.  It really does make a difference.  It reminds me that even a small action can make a huge impact on someone; that we don't have to do something huge and world renown to make a difference.   We can make the world a better place by giving even a little bit of happiness and joy to those around us, those friends, family members, and acquaintances that maybe sometimes we take for granted.  Sometimes I wander around too in my own head and focused on my own day to notice someone else that might need even the smallest pick-me-up. Today I'm going to try to be more conscious of the people I see and take the opportunities I'm given to make their day a little brighter.

Thanks again everyone!  
I hope you are all having a good week.

Kathy :)
