Here are a few Reader Responses to Feeling Human:

“I’ve never read anything quite like this. You have a misunderstood youth, sure, but he’s very different from anyone else in the world or in literature… Engaging from the start, satisfying to the end.”

“I really lost myself in it. I liked the variety of characters and experiences…It felt real. A great job capturing a boy who was so hung up on his past he couldn’t move forward in life…both fun and heartwarming…very original and refreshing.”

“It was brilliant! Intriguing, unusual and yet so human and familiar.”

I can’t wait to share this book with you! After you read it, leave a review on Amazon, and let me know what you thought about it.  I’d love any feedback you care to share. Thanks! -Sheri J. Kennedy

A Look Inside – Feeling Human

Feeling Human Back Cover FinalSince I put up excerpts of one of my other novels on my Miss LiV Adventures blog today, I thought I’d post an excerpt of Feeling Human here. Only 3 more days until the April 12th Release!

Jac’s adventures inside other humans vary from hilarious, touching to terrifying. This is a fairly light excerpt with a bit of a cliff-hanger from when Jac’s occupying a thirty-something guy named Bruce:

‘Bruce looked up when the outside door opened and laughed a hearty, “Hey Benny!”

“Hey Bruce. What’s happenin’?” The short, lean man in a high collar leather jacket full of zippers, popped onto a stool, and a beer from Arnie appeared in front of him.

“Finally talked to Minnie.”

“Alright. Way to do it. Is she into you?”

“Aw shut up, Benny.”

The two men smiled and sipped their beers. Jac was again lulled with the easy vibe Bruce carried. Even with this guy right at his elbow.

“How you doin’ with Carol?” Bruce’s brow cocked at Benny.

Benny smacked Bruce playfully up side of the head.

Whoa…Crap! Jac thought as he was suddenly staring at Bruce’s mock threat of retaliation and laughing with Benny’s voice.

Yikes! This guy is already kinda drunk. Benny’s wooziness hit Jac like he’d just jumped off a merry-go-round, but it didn’t cloud his mind. Weird, so I can feel Benny’s buzz but not be affected by it? This should be fun! Mmm, it’s bizarre when his eyes swing too fast. I hope he doesn’t walk around.

“But seriously. Have you seen Carol?” Bruce asked Benny.

“Yeah, yeah. Seen her. I always see her. But I’m a short drunk, Bruce.”

Jac mentally winced for the jump of bodies as he saw Bruce’s paw come up to pat Benny on the back.

Nothing…what? Oh, I get it. Clothes. That’s why Minnie didn’t lose me when she bumped into Bruce by the door. He grabbed her shoulder through her uniform. It has to be skin to skin. Or hair, I guess. Human contact. Wow.

“Don’t take it so hard, Benny. You got a better chance than I do. At least you’re agile. And you’ve got a car.”

“Oh yeah, my sexy Taurus with one wrecked fender. That’ll win her over.” Benny guzzled the rest of his pint and wrestled a crumpled bill out of his pocket onto the counter. Jac’s mind would’ve been spinning, if he’d been in charge of this body. “Well, I just stopped in for a quick one,” Benny explained, “I’m on my way out to One Shot Charlie’s.”

“Okay. Drive safely, Benster.” Bruce nodded.

“Yeah, yeah.” Benny caught his balance after jumping to the floor.

Jac changed his mind about not being affected by the alcohol. Just because he could still analyze clearly didn’t mean things were normal. Benny’s vision was all over the place and his messed up equilibrium and corresponding body checks were really disconcerting.

“Later,” Arnie called.

“Say hi to Carol from me,” Bruce cheered as Benny and Jac left Nick’s Place.

When they hit the pavement, Jac worried they’d hit it for real. We’re getting in a car like this?’

First Day of Camp

 

What a day…2 hours of editing Miss Livingstone for my Camp NaNoWriMo 75 hour goal, a post for ‘A’ of the A to Z Blogging Challenge, 5 hours to FINISH *Yay!* the full cover wrap for Feeling Human, and 1 hour down, probably at least another 2 to go doing the final check on the ARC proof for Feeling Human.

Somewhere in all of that I managed to hang out with my husband a little bit, but not much else. At least I changed the scenery several times – home, library, my office, Starbucks, and home again. It really helps me stay to task to change environments when my attention flags.

How do you keep on editing or writing when your brain wants to move on?
