Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 4/5/2020
Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip. Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.
*Talk about a weird world we are living in. My grandmother told me about the Spanish Flu in 1918-19. She told me (I was just a kid when she passed) about how strange her world became. Her words are coming back in color as our world is turning into a replica of her world back then.
I don’t always trust the media to give me unbiased news. We have an author, L.D. Rose, who is a doctor in real life in Rhode Island and she has shared on her blog what the real world is like for a health care professional. I love her as a person and professional. She is kind and caring and a hell of a writer. I trust her to give me the straight stuff. Please read excerpt:
There are clearly WAY more positive cases than are being reported. The majority of people are not being tested (and asked to simply stay home and wait out their symptoms) because there are not enough tests, and frankly, not enough PPE to administer them. I’ve been wearing the same mask for the past week and plan to until it’s no longer functioning or soiled. We’re conserving as much as possible without risking lives, but other states are not so lucky. Many of my med school friends in NYC have told me the situation is a disaster there and looking pretty dire.
I am sad for everyone because it’s a situation that no one can just “fix” and it’ll be better. We have to do what we can. If it’s staying home and away from people, it’s still doing something. Here is the part where she gives me some hope.
This is not about the mortality rate, per se, because most of us will survive this.
She explains more in her whole post, so I hope you’ll take time and zip over to her blog to read her post. You’ll find it here: L.D. Rose blog
In the meantime, she also offers intel on getting the SOUL MATE TREE box set for 99 cents. Be sure to get it by end of today because the offer will expire quickly. L.D. Rose wrote Sweet Sacrifice. Here’s the publisher’s description:
Heaven is hell without her…
Former Navy SEAL Sebastian “Bash” Lockard died in Afghanistan after leaping on a grenade to save his comrades. Little did he know his act of heroism would grant him a ticket into Heaven’s elite army as one of the few and powerful Archangels. Struggling with his new existence, Bash still retains his human memories, leaving behind a wife he loves with all of his heart. Although he’s forbidden to see her, he can’t resist her lure, or the mortal desires he harbors for her.
As a young widow and nurse, Irene Lockard still mourns her husband two years after his untimely death. His absence is everywhere, and when her best friend weds, she hits an emotional rock bottom. As if summoned from the skies above, Sebastian appears before her, and they share an unforgettable night. But when he once again vanishes, she wonders if she’s truly gone mad with grief.
The only way Sebastian can remain with Irene is if he makes the ultimate sacrifice. But will she overcome her fear of losing him again to another war?
