Untangling The Knots In Time And Dealing With Minions

I have two items of note today. The first has to do with a book release by Meradeth Houston just out this week, called Travelers.

Sienna Crenshaw knows the rules: 1) no time traveling beyond your natural lifetime, 2) no screwing with death, and 3) no changing the past. Ever. Sienna doesn’t love being stuck in the present, but she’s not the type to to break the rules. That is, she wasn’t the type until her best friend broke every one of those rules to keep Henry, her twin brother and Sienna’s ex-boyfriend, alive.

Suddenly, Sienna is caught in an unfamiliar reality. The upside? Henry is still alive. The downside? Sienna’s old life, including the people in it, has been erased. Now, Sienna and Henry must untangle the giant knot in time, or her parents and all the rest of the Travelers, will be lost forever. One problem: the only way to be successful is for Henry to die...

Check out Meradeth's blog for details on a giveaway, and you can find the Kindle edition through her Amazon page.

Now for the other order of business...

Today happens to be the birthday of my dear friend, fellow writer, and partner in crime Norma Beishir. Minions, of course, seem a very fitting way to welcome in her birthday. Give her your best wishes here or at her blog on this day of days.

Happy Birthday, Norma! Have a blast!

And if you've got banana cake, make sure you hide it from the Minions.


  1. Happy Birthday, Norma! Love Shelly the Slacker!

  2. And thank you, William and Shelly!

    We can't keep bananas around our house. They just keep disappearing!

  3. All of a sudden I feel like a minion! Happy Birthday!

  4. That book sounds as crazy as my life usually is. Happy Birthday to Norma! If she's as you described, I think I'd like her a lot!

  5. The book sounds terrific. Best of luck to Meradeth.
    But from an artist, no white type on a wavy light blue background.
    Just had a eye seizure.
