Everything Grows from a Good Night’s Sleep

Sleep nurtures minds and bodies in perhaps the most critical stage of development. In fact, The National Sleep Foundation finds that by the age of two, most children have spent more time asleep than awake and overall, a child will spend 40 percent of their childhood asleep.

Nightmares and night terrors, disrupting this healthy and necessary process, affects up to 50% of children between ages 3–5, according to Dr. John A. Cowan, Jr., MD, children are constantly adapting to an expansive world full of potential and mystery. And while children brim with creativity and opportunity, such rapid exposure to a series of unknowns can often create fear and uncertainty.

“That’s why I created NightBuddies®: to channel the boundless energy of children everywhere into wellness and imagination. NightBuddies® are designed to stop the problem at its root. Our toys ease fears and curb nightmares.”— Sally Connolly, NightBuddies Founder

I was super sick last weekend with sinus/ TMJ issues and these great reads missed their debut here. Please check these out now! We got a good mix going on here:

What happens when the line between good and evil blurs?

Michael’s Passion

The Archangel Michael has been on earth for thousands of years, but nothing could have prepared him for meeting a demonic seductress that he can’t bring himself to kill. Jahi has made a living as seductress, but she’ll be damned if she is going to trade one kind of slavery for another. Each haunted by their past, can they learn to trust in one another, the love that has grown between them? Will they even have time?

The demon horde has changed leadership, and a new drug is sweeping the streets of Los Angeles. With every evil entity out there looking for Jahi, can Michael keep her…

Sandra Daniels

 

Sandra Daniels is a small business owner, mother of three grown sons, and the wife of a Sheriff’s Deputy. She also just so happens to lead a double life as a writer of the books she loves to read—stories with relatable characters, humor, angst, hot sex, and just enough mayhem thrown in to make things interesting. And she manages to do it all with just a touch of southern flair. 

 

When she’s not writing, she loves reading, watching SEC football, lunching with friends, and spending time with her family—that is when she’s not chasing after the family’s chocolate lab, Rosco, who generally has one of her shoes. 

 

Lulu M Sylvian 

 

Bio-engineered to be the only redhead in a generation of blonds, Lulu feels that “aliens” may actually be the best answer for a lifetime of being asked, “Where did you get that red hair from?”
She did not come into writing from years of scribbling words on paper. Her background is rooted in visual arts and making pictures. Encouraged to make those pictures out of words Lulu began writing just to see what would happen. What happened was two full-length manuscripts in three months.
Lulu cannot ride a horse, a motorcycle, spin a hula hoop, or play roller derby. Yes, she has attempted all of those, even if it has been decades since she’s been on a horse or a motorcycle. She embraces the crazy that comes with that one little genetic mutation and attempts to live up to the reputation that proceeds her. Lulu would like to apologize for her contribution to the hole in the ozone layer from her use of hairspray in the 1980’s.

Barb Shuler 

 

Barb is a Carolina Girl by right and a Texan by birth. By day she’s a desk jockey for a rural transportation company and a book lover – reading through as many books as she can. At night, though, she turns into her alter ego, a writer. Cape, optional, depending on her mood.
Her stories are a mix of real life events, her own personal experiences, the crazy workings of her imagination, and the imaginations of her best friends. And with their imaginations together, it can get a bit nutty at times. Barb writes in multiple genres, encounters new adventures, creates new worlds and has a fantastic time breathing life into new stories. Creating something she hopes inspires anyone who reads them to fall in love with them as much as she has.
Barb lives by one little rule, tomorrow is never guaranteed so make sure you live each day to its fullest.

Sarah L Roth

 

Just a Long Island girl living in a Southern world…..
20 years ago, a Jew moved from the comfort of her Long Island home for parts unknown of South Carolina. She had to learn and adapt to the ways of the South, real quick like. For years, she was on a quest for Northern goodies in a Southern town. The journey for the proper bagel and the perfect NYC pizza always eluded her. The ever-loving theater geek, she craved the bright lights of the big city and planned to return some day. All her plans changed when she attempted to settle down. The “Experiments” came exactly five years apart (one boy and one girl) and both are every bit as eclectic as she. Boy Experiment sings The Beastie Boys and Taylor Swift on demand, while Girl Experiment shouts “Where is Thumpkin” with gusto of a head-banging Metal God.
Once adapted, she made a life with her B.A. in Theatre Performance in hand, and continued to find balance between Faith and the delights of slower Southern living. Now fluent in “Bless your hearts” and understanding the importance of pearl-clutching, she visits the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple, but loves coming home to her children. Her family humors her and the kids enjoy her antics.

Courtney Lynn Rose

 

Courtney grew up in Baltimore and is pretty sure she threw her ability to give a f**k into the Inner Harbor long before high school. Like almost every writer on the planet, she started writing at a very young age. Her “way with words” led to her being the go-to person for writing funeral speeches for a long time. She tried poetry during that typical teenage phase when, like most, she thought it was her sole purpose to contemplate the existence of life and love and all the other things she thought she knew about.

 

For fourteen years she left the writing world behind and worked full-time as a paranormal investigator and demonologist until retiring in 2014. During that time, she had three children, earned degrees in Abnormal Psychology, Criminal Justice, and English Literature, and eventually got back to writing. While all things paranormal will always be Courtney’s heart and soul, closing the door on that career opened up a plethora of ways to use that knowledge and experience to scare the hell out of people through her writing and public talks.

 

Today, she lives in East Tennessee with her children and spends a majority of her time writing things that make people smile while cutting their emotions deep, and running her own professional editing company— Full Bloom Editorial. Courtney is also proud to be the Acquisitions Editor for the small press publisher, Knox Publishing, LLC.
Her novels pull from life and bring to light the things she holds fiercely in her DNA— abuse and addiction survival, domestic violence, and above all, the notion and belief that love, loyalty, and friendship are the bonds which hold every relationship together. Courtney also dabbles in the world of cover modeling and is honored and humbled by every cover she’s asked to be on for her fellow authors.

Today is release day for Retreat, Anne Conley’s latest.  It’s actually the first in a new series, Rocco Securities, a spin off of Pierce Securities.  So if you love her Pierce Boys, wait until you meet the Rocco team!

Introducing, Rocco Securities:
When their vacation turns into another crime to solve, Evan and Jordan Rocco jump on the case. With the bad guys locked away, they’re ready to head home. Then, the unthinkable happens, forcing them to make a decision.
The brothers have struck out on their own—new team, new office, new city.
Join the Pierce Securities men as they write a new chapter in their lives: Rocco Securities.
Retreat, Book One (Special release week sale price of .99!)
Indie lives in hell.  Her life is nothing like she expected it to be, so when Evan Rocco and his wife Paige offer to take her away for a while, she jumps at the chance.
Montana is just what she needs:  mountains, streams, wide-open spaces … and Cash.
Cash’s life isn’t anything like he’d planned … until Indie shows up at the ranch where he works.
There’s something about her that tugs at his protective instincts, and he simply can’t resist her.
Unfortunately, finding each other doesn’t mean life is going to go the way they expect it to.
This book has triggers.  Lots of them.  That’s your warning.

 

Excerpt (without the triggers):

Indie awoke to sunlight streaming through the rafters and a rough horse blanket tucked over her. She was still in the corner of the stall, covered in kittens. The mama cat sat in the corner opposite her looking with lowered lids as if to say, “What the hell do you think you’re doing with my babies all over you?”
She’d slept here. In a barn. All fucking night.
“Indie!” Evan called from the yard.
If she’d slept out here all night, they were probably worried about her. She gingerly stood, trying to replace the kittens without dumping them, creating a raucous chorus of mewls.
Her back and neck were stiffer than she’d ever felt before, but even with that, she felt amazing. Maybe it was sleeping in the outside air? Under moonlight? No blue screens? No TV in the background?
She didn’t know, but Indie suddenly didn’t feel like Montana for a month was a mistake.
Indie managed to make it out into the sunlight, still holding the horse blanket.
Folding it, she called out, “I’m over here, Evan. Sorry.”
Evan trotted to the barn entrance, and she saw movement out of the corner of her eye. Glancing over, she saw Cash and the horse in the round pen next to the barn. He watched her closely but didn’t say anything.
“How long have you been out here? When did you wake up?”
She shrugged, not sure if she wanted to admit she’d spent all night there. “I’m sorry for worrying you. I was exploring and found some kittens.”
Evan grinned, relief written all over his face. “Kittens are good medicine. You want some breakfast? Mom and Flo have cooked enough food to feed a million people.”
“I’ll be inside in a minute.” Indie didn’t relish the thought of that many people around a table, not this early in the morning.
“Hey, I get it. This place can be overwhelming. Just let me know what I can do to help, okay?” He touched her shoulder but knew she didn’t like to be touched, so Indie was grateful it was just a graze. Evan was good at reading her and never touched her more than necessary. Paige was the same way. “The ladies are going to be canning later this afternoon. If you’d like to see how pickles are made, you’re more than welcome to join in.” His smile dropped. “No pressure, Indie, but don’t disappear again. I don’t have the Wi-Fi to enable your tracking device.”
She blanched. “You have a tracker on me?” His answering grin revealed he was joking. “Sorry. That was stupid.”
“Not stupid. It was a joke. I do that sometimes. You’ll like them. I promise.” With a wave to Cash, Evan trotted back to the house.
“Indie?” A low, deep voice came from her side, where Cash suddenly stood, blocking the low-slung sun as it ascended into the sky.
She involuntarily took a step back from the massive man. “Yeah?”
“Sorry. I didn’t mean to—” he began, his hands absently curling a rope between strong fingers. “Um, did you sleep well in the barn?”
He tugged the loops of rope in his hands, and Indie reminded herself it was a tool for him, not a sadistic thing. Not every man she met was him, and this guy was not about to tie her to anything.
She swallowed as his question filtered through the terror in her veins. “How did you know?” The words came out a choked whisper.
He motioned to the horse blanket she clutched to her chest, a barrier against the world. “You were in there when I came home, and I put that on you.” His low chuckle filled her tummy with lava, uncomfortable yet enticing. “You were still there when I came in to work this morning.”
She looked up to see his lips quirked into a small smile. It was a nice smile. His mouth was a bit too large by conventional standards, but nice lips, a dimple in one cheek, great teeth. Indie had yet to see his eyes—he had his back to the sun and the wide brim of his hat pulled low, but she imagined they were dark like him.
“Oh. Yeah. I did. Surprisingly so.” Her words didn’t work around this guy, but she spilled them out anyway. “Something about the barn was comforting to me last night. I didn’t mean to sleep there. I was just playing with the kittens. There was too much noise inside. Too many people.” Her fragmented thoughts vocalized themselves, and to her mortification, his smile got bigger.
“Definitely too many people. I get that. If you want, there’s a cot in the bunkhouse I can set up in that stall so you can sleep there more.”
Cash shuffled his feet, and when she looked up at him, all she saw was hat as he dipped his head to watch his feet. Was he shy around her?
“Uh, I don’t think I should make a habit of it.” Even if she wanted to. She’d slept better last night than she had in months. But the idea of people knowing she was sleeping in the barn kind of took away the anonymity of being there, which Indie thought had helped things.
Cash took a step toward her, invading her space as he lifted his hand to her hair. Indie froze as his scent overwhelmed her. Jesus Christ, did a man have to smell so good? Her body heated as the aromas of leather, some sort of body wash, and earthy man filled her. When he touched her hair, she flinched, but he didn’t move, continuing his assault on her senses. He twirled a piece of her hair with his fingers, and she stared at his chest covered in a long-sleeved button-down shirt with pearl snaps. It was worn at the cuffs and frayed at the collar, and yet another piece of evidence of how real cowboys wore clothes.
She closed her eyes and inhaled, trying to still her spinning thoughts as this man’s presence quickly stunned and frightened her. Her heart pounded in her chest, and she inadvertently took another step back, hitting the side of the barn door with her shoulder.
“You have hay in your hair,” he muttered, holding up a clump of the offending material.
Her hands immediately flew to her head. “Crap. Of course, I do.” She started running her fingers through her hair, trying to remove as much as she could before she went inside.
“You want me to distract them all while you sneak in the back?”
She looked up at him. “Would you?” She had no idea how to explain the bed was too bed-like for her to sleep in it and she’d spent her first night outside at these accommodating people’s house.
“No worries. They’re overwhelming on a good day. I get it.” He started to reach for her again, but she shied away, so he spun around. “Come on.”
His long legs took them around the back of the house to a door nestled in the corner between some giant flowering shrubs. He opened the door and let her in.
“I hope you made me some gravy to go with those biscuits, Ma!” he hollered before gesturing to some stairs she hadn’t seen. “These go up to the second floor, the opposite end of where your room probably is.”
“Thanks.”
But he’d already strode through the mudroom and to wherever the door led, so she followed his directions and made it to her room.
