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.

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.

Kids (and Pets) in Hot Cars- The Preventable Tragedy

A very important reminder! Don’t leave kids or pets in cars, please!

Dogpaddling Through Life

Today is Heat Stroke Prevention Day. It’s designed to remind people of the danger of leaving children in cars.

I know, we talk this subject to death. And yet death is the result for 19 kids so far this year. The adults responsible include a hospital CEO and a foster father. And who knows HOW many animals have died?

As I've said before, Rumpy loves to lie out in the hot sun. I stay out with him and make him come in after a few minutes. As I’ve said before, Rumpy loves to lie out in the hot sun. I stay out with him and make him come in after a few minutes.

So why DO people leave kids in cars?

A study of the phenomenon found that: 

51% – child “forgotten” by caregiver

29% – child playing in unattended vehicle

18% – child intentionally left in vehicle by adult (yes, they knew what they were doing, but didn’t think anything would happen)

1% – circumstances unknown
