A LITTLE TEASER FROM MY NEWEST BOOK! 'WHAT'S YOUR POISON'
“You are not helping us. I bet all the beds are open!” the man interrupted. His fingers curled tightly in a fist. He could feel his fist smashing into EMT’s nose, splattering red blood all over the dirty walls. That would have made him feel better. “If you wanted to help, you would have given me a blanket and a sandwich,” he said instead. Throwing up his arms he stomped to the door. “F#$@ you!” he shouted as he kicked the door so hard it slammed against the wall.
I have a new book called 'What's Your Poison'. It is about drugs, alcohol and homelessness. It is fiction but the idea has come to me from real events.
So I am writing this section to talk to you about this subject. I myself have never been on drugs or alcohol. I have come close to being homeless. I do remember when we had five kids, no jobs and lived in 3 bedroom apartment with my son's bed under the stairway. We ate a lot of peanut butter and mac & cheese.
I work with a lot of people who are recovering addicts. They are some of the nicest people I have ever met. And their stories will make you cry.
I have never really met people on heroin or meth before I got this job. And I would be lying if I said this isn't scary.
I was almost killed at my job one day. Not sure what this patient was on but it is in my book. I would love to hear stories from you. Do you know anyone on drugs or alcohol or maybe you have been there yourself.
Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you.

special people. I met this young lady about four years ago on Twitter. She wrote the sweetest comments that were up lifting and beautiful. She would also retweet her friends. I am lucky enough to be one of her friends. Well I got the chance to go to Australia and when I told her I was coming to see her beautiful country she made sure to meet me. This makes writing even more wonderful when you meet people on line and than in person. I hope to meet other people who like to read my books. This was a special event for me. Thank you Ruby Mitova for taking the time to meet me. You are a beautiful person.
Well for you authors out there, I am trying some thing different to get attention to my books. I am trying a P.A. Personal Assistant. Her name is Nicole McClanahan PA is who I am using for this month. I will let you know how it goes. Maybe you can let me know if you have ever used a P.A. and how your experience was. Thanks.
Just a follow up. I found that using a P.A. is not selling any books. I may try again with someone else but this experiment showed me that I was advertising my book more than the P.A. was. And that even though I was putting posts on 30 book sights, no one was commenting or even looking at what I was trying to show them.
