I want to say having Logan Hawkes as a guest last Thursday was amazing! His wonderful and well thought out insights were fantastic and I enjoyed reading every one. I am sure he was tired by the end of the day, but he didn't miss one answer, even if it took him to 9:00 at night. It was much appreciated! I hope one day I can have him back as a guest, everyone seemed to really enjoy his answers, and could relate to his musings, or even agree with his research.
Well, we do have a winner: Toni Burns - You will be sent Logan's book Ancient Aliens of the Americas!
I will be in contact with you for your mailing information and get it to Logan. Congratulations Toni! I hope you enjoy the book, and don't forget to share!
Back to the drawing board for me, or the writing board for that matter. I will post a teaser from my book and as always, don't forget to leave me your comments, and or critiques. It lets me know you care and your reading!
Stevie had hoped to have her friends at her side when she made the decision to look for signs of the mysterious man, but lacking that (and them trying to talk her out of it), She decided to head up the mountain with Tonka.
Deep in the tree line, Stevie scanned the area, feeling more nervous than she anticipated. The foliage was thick; making it was hard to spot anyone who didn’t want to be seen. Between the abundance of trees and bushes, even an inexperienced camper could hide easily. She watched Tonka, who always reacted to strangers, but the lab seemed contented to push her nose through the tall grasses and do her doggy business. She wondered how she would handle it if he did show himself. Would she run? Would she stop and try to talk with him? Of course you would run, she thought, you don’t know what he wants or who he is. Then again, she was curious.
As she neared the peak, Stevie lost sight of Tonka racing behind a large cropping of boulders. Calling the dog, Tonka finally responded by loping toward her, a leather pouch swinging from her jaws. Stevie commanded the lab to drop the item in her hand, and followed the dog to find out what she had gotten into.
A cropping of rock hid a small entrance in the mountain side. Stevie was surprised that she had never before come across the opening after years of hiking the area. Ducking her head inside, the cave opened into a comfortable large cavern. The sunlight illuminated the first few feet of the entrance, providing just enough light to see a rolled up wool blanket, more leather pouches that looked similar to what Tonka had retrieved, a knife, an apple, and a sewn together booklet.
Intrigued, she picked up the booklet and moved farther into the light. The cover had the feel of supple leather. It appeared to be handmade, and the front was embossed with a circle ringed in silver, like a pendant. She ran her hands over the silver inlay remembering the agate pendant the man wore in her visions. Opening the book, Stevie gingerly turned to the first page. The paper had the textured feel of parchment; thicker, but more translucent than normal writing paper. The book was filled with drawings and a language she had never seen. Although beautifully rendered, Stevie was unable to comprehend the meanings, and then half-way through, she saw something familiar. Flipping back a few pages, there it was, in full color, bold as can be—her birthmark.
Enjoy, and don't forget to leave a comment! Have a wonderful week!
