Exploding Meatball Bombs, All my books in KU, Book Giveaways and Deals

Exploding Meatball Bombs

Last night I reheated a meatball to throw on the spaghetti squash I was making for dinner (in case you were wondering how to shoehorn a bunch of fat and meat into a healthy vegetarian meal… oh, and don’t forget the metric ton of Parmesan cheese…butter soaked garlic bread…). My husband Mike was standing next to me as I reached into the microwave with my clunky oven gloves to grab the little glass bowl I’d sat the meatball in for reheating.

You know where this is going don’t you.

Yep. I dropped it.

The glass shattered on the tile floor. The little bit of leftover spaghetti sauce covering the meatball immediately multiplied itself by a thousand-fold and shot up from the floor to the ceiling, like some kind of sauce geyser, (do they have those in Italy?) splattering all over Mike’s arm, clothes and face.

The sauce was screaming hot, so Mike started jumping around…all over the shards of glass while I stood there with my chin hanging, watching it all happen in slow motion.

We regret to inform you that dinner has been delayed…

Just about the time I finished cleaning up the sauce, Mike went trotting by leaving a trail of blood in his wake. For fans of medical thrillers, this was where we shifted to the triage portion of our dinner service, while I cleaned and band-aided his foot.

For the next hour I had to listen to how he was getting weak from loss of blood and would I mind finding his will so he could cross me off it in case he didn’t wake up in the morning.


Back to Kindle Unlimited…

My apologies to the people out there who don’t read Kindle books, I tried. I really tried. But I had to bring all my books back to Amazon exclusive. There just aren’t enough people on the other sites (Kobo, Barnes & Noble, etc) to even come CLOSE to making up for the lost Kindle Unlimited page reads. So until I win the lottery…

The good news is you can read all my books for FREE! (if you subscribe to Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited Program)

From my Pineapple Mysteries, to Kilty Romantic Suspense, to Angeli Urban Fantasy, to Slightly Romantic Comedies… (even the one Young Adult Fantasy I wrote for my nieces) ALL my series and books are on KU!

Did you know even if you read on your iPad and not a Kindle, you can still read books from Amazon?

I know most of you know that, but occasionally someone will tell me they can’t read my books because they use their iPad. All you need to do is download the KINDLE APP. That’s how I read all my books, actually — Kindle app on iPad!

The Shadow Minds Journal

By Kia Carrington-Russell

Usual Price: 3.99 Sale: .99

In this world, there are creatures lurking in the shadows. As a child, I once played with them. As a teenager, I began to fear them and became victim to their attacks. As an adult, I now realize that no matter how much I try to escape the grasp of this world, I was inevitably born into it. Now reborn as a Guardian in the world of 2986, Vivian must uphold the treaty between Angels and Demons on the human world and city of Shabeah. Contracted to seven demons who she can shift into while taking direct orders from the Underworld Lord, Haymen, it wasn’t exactly her ideal rebirth. Still fighting those who try to possess her during her sleep, Vivian must now record and try to hunt the Volv through the Shadow Minds Journal. Suspicious after the death of a fellow soldier, the Angel of War, Gabe, convicts Vivian of murder and confines himself to her for thirty days. Stuck between the hatred and lust of two of the most powerful entities in all worlds, Vivian is involved inevitably in the upcoming conflict. Blood. Lust. War. She must kill before being killed.

    Still laughing….. believe it or not, something similar happened at my house with a broken ceramic plate fuuullll of spaghetti and sauce. Shards of ceramic, sauce everywhere, kids, dogs, yelling…. you get the picture. It’s all fun and games until somebody cuts something. Funny later tho!

    Even with all the crazy things happening, I can laugh with the best of them. I have been known to burst into laughter even in the emergency room of the nearest hospital during dire times. Laughing has gotten me through some of the worst times of my life, and I remind others that it takes less energy to laugh than to cry. Thanks for helping me feel “normal”.
