Whoo hoo! It’s finally the big day!! Through the Cracks is officially launched! This new novel is a rich and honest relationship story with a good measure of mystery and a bit of a supernatural element. It’s also the story of three women that fall within a wide age span, so it carries a three-generation view of life and friendship, fear and trust, and growing into who you are. I’m thrilled to send this book out to you and into the story universe! Get your copy today… CLICK HERE
I don’t often review books here, but I thought the wild and weird in this one might entertain those of you who follow or stop in at Reality with a Twist. This is Book II of the Echo Falls Series, but you can read it as a standalone or after Wilderness Rim.
I expected adventure when moving forward from the fun Sasquatch-meeting story in Wilderness Rim to the next in the series, Tanner’s Landing, but this book also packs way more punch. Like Scooby Doo vs. Dark Shadows – both entertaining, mysterious, and flirting with the paranormal, but one definitely wins out on the creep factor. This amp up in intensity works for me in much the way the Harry Potter series does, since both are following characters that are growing up. It makes sense that 15 to 16-year-olds would get mixed up in deeper trouble and stranger circumstances than younger teens. Their relationships also gain complexity, and I relate to the push and pull of tension between C.J. and Janey’s friendship-or-more dilemma as well as the anxiety of all the Echo Falls gang as their peer group grows in new directions. Newly introduced character, Max, grabbed me right away and has become my favorite along with his Uncle Sebastian. I highly recommend this read, but keep the lights on, and get set for all things weird and wonderful!
The first blog review is here! Just a couple days before official launch date. Thanks, Rachel Barnard! I’m over the moon!! 🙂 -SJK

So this isn’t exactly a current event, but I came across this worldwide over 1 million user-created experiment/artwork and it’s explanation, and I’m totally fascinated by what happened and how well it’s shown here… What do you think about it? https://www.newsweek.com/reddit-place-internet-experiment-579049
I just learned about a more powerful Reverse Image Search tool, RevEye a Chrome Extension. Amazing!!

The first fun fact is I’ve got an artist crush on Matthew Inman, aka The Oatmeal. Not so much on his potty-mouth, potty-jokes, but on his curious mind and generous creative spirit. He’s awesome. He not only wonders about cool stuff, he takes the time to research it, draw it, and share it with the world.
Here’s the second fun fact… courtesy of The Oatmeal (CLICK PHOTO TO LEARN THIS FUN FACT… AND A FEW MORE WITH AWESOME ILLUSTRATIONS AND FLAIR.)
Who can resist a bit of science, a lot of engineering and a walnut heist? Enjoy!!

And I do keep my promises… I said my new book was coming very, very soon. Is this soon enough for you? (SECRET REVEAL INSIDE… shhh)
My petticoat muse has taken quite a turn. No sooner did I finish Miss Livingstone Book III: Dreams Key and set the Release and Launch for December 21st and she kicked back and quit helping me!
“It’s the holidays,” she says. “I’m getting a makeover and chillaxing until the virtual parties arrive.”
“It’s time for copious reading and tasty treats!” she insists.
I’ve been run ragged supplying her with books to read and refilling her bon-bons tray. Always more bon-bons!
I guess I could quit jumping to her command. She’s set aside the gun now. But I don’t like the look of those spike heels. Besides, when I brought her the last tray of treats, she shared a SWEET SECRET that you can click on and see too… (“PSSST…” she spit-whispered, “the Kindle of Miss Liv III is up already. Don’t tell anyone!”) And, she showed me this… COVER REVEAL!…
