Bored Of Self-Isolation? Go On An Adventure Instead #Fantasy #Kids #Book #Sale

If you’re bored being stuck at home in quarantine or self-isolation because of COVID-19, why don’t you try to escape for while and go on some fun, lighthearted Fantasy adventures instead.

To get things started, I’m putting my Fantasy short story anthology on sale to make things a little easier on your pockets.

Confronting evil sorcerers. Fighting monsters. Dueling metal golems. Searching for a sea monster. Hunting lost treasure. Finding a missing show dog. Competing in talent contests. Helping lost children. These are just some of the widely varied exploits that the young mercenary sorceress Marissa “Riss” Cobalt shares in this second Adventures in Sorcery book. Riss reveals how she ended up as a mercenary and chronicles some of the many adventures, ranging from fun to serious, that she’s had prior to the events of Kismet and Tell.

Chronicles of Riss will be on sale for $0.99 for the Kindle starting April 8, 2020 until the end of the month.

And although it’s not on sale, you can also get the first Adventures in Sorcery book:

Marissa “Riss” Cobalt is a young sorceress-for-hire known throughout the world not only for her blue hair and temper but also for helping people with their problems if the money is right. So naturally, when the nephew of one of the ruling lords of the city of Westover disappears while searching for a legendary treasure, Riss is called on. Since she’s on retainer to the lords, she has no choice but to accept, despite feeling there’s more going on than she’s being told.

Get Kismet And Tell in e-book or paperback from Amazon here.

If you need a new book for the kids to enjoy and help them escape being cooped up in the house, how about letting them go on an adventure traveling around the world and visiting different countries without even leaving the house.

Young Luca receives a handmade wooden chair from his grandfather for Christmas – a chair that comes to life for him and takes the small boy traveling to different countries.

Let your child join young Luca on his travels and learn a little about places like Germany, France, and Egypt. Get The Little Italian Traveling Chair in paperback on Amazon here.

Quench – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Amber heaved a huge sigh as she settled into her airplane seat. It was finally over. No more being shot at by rival treasure hunters. No more narrow escapes from tribes of native cannibals. No more trekking through a jungle and being eaten alive by huge mosquitos or having to watch out  for large, poisonous snakes or spiders. Yes, her thirst for adventure had certainly been quenched. She would definitely think twice about following another old map to a lost treasure. Just how did Indiana Jones manage to do it all the time?! she wondered as the plane lifted off to take her home.

30 traits of an Empath (How to know if you’re an Empath)

via 30 traits of an Empath (How to know if you’re an Empath) | The Mind Unleashed.

This is an interesting article that I looked up at my mother’s request the other day. A lady at her church had mentioned being an empath to her and told her a little about it. My mother found it interesting, and similar to things she’s experienced, so she mentioned it to me and her belief that she might be an empath, and had me look it up.

As I was reading through the list of traits, she nodded her head and commented her agreement on just about each trait. I found myself agreeing with most of the traits, as well (at least half to 2/3 of them), such as: being a good listener; not much of a crowd person; a need for solitude; people coming to me with their problems; seeming shy and aloof; being creative and easily bored; daydreaming; loving nature and animals; liking adventure and travel; always looking for answers and the truth; having a hard time doing things I don’t enjoy; feeling the emotions of others and taking them on as my own; an interest in the metaphysical and supernatural. There are other traits I somewhat related to, also. And I also noticed that some of the traits seemed to echo traits of an introvert. So now I wonder how much of my introverted nature might also be me being empathic.
