Welcome to Sea Witch

This is from the introduction piece I have posted on Smashwords. I took a couple of introductory pieces and combined them into a short freebie on Smashwords and All Romance.

"You came up here now to see me, hmm. Didn't you get enough of talking to him earlier?"

"Well, I'm Cherise and it’s very nice to meet you today. He's pretty interesting, glad I decided to go with him when he was leaving. It's been a lot of fun for me traveling to all of the islands we have gone to. Make sure "

"Where I'm originally from is a place called Esquebel Island where my Sister has a cattle ranch. Got tired of her trying to hook me into a marriage to someone I didn't really like. She also broke up any relationship I did want because she didn't think the guy was good enough. I don’t think that she would approve of Timothy either but it doesn't matter what she thinks since I'm not living on the ranch now. I came to the point that I just had to leave, won't have her telling me what to do!"

"I like sitting up here to see what's out front of us. It's kind of a discovery for me, seeing something new every day with the man I love. He's never far away from me."

“What do I want most now? I guess I would like to settle down somewhere. Maybe even we could settle down in Christiansted. We’ve been traveling a long time now.”

“Oh, you’re leaving now?

Okay, I’ll see you some other time I guess. Have a great day.”

Meeting the characters

Would you like to meet Timothy and Cherise? Well, you can.

I've produced a short freebie that's now on Smashwords and will be on most book sites soon.

I hope that everyone really enjoys this little book. Unlike anything else that I've written this little book is only the characters talking.It's done from their point of view.

I've sat trying to write in a cold house and its not fun. Your fingers just don't like to hit the keys and your thoughts slow down. It's not as fun to watch TV either as you're needing to wear a jacket or a sweater in the house. I don't personally watch much TV, too busy writing these days.

I'll recommend doing your best to winterize your place the best you can. Some of the things to do are kind of annoying but high utility bills can be more annoying. Last year I put in more insulation which paid for itself the first year.

This year, I replaced two old windows. I also added some awnings that I built to the house. There was one main reason for those, to keep the direct sun off of the windows to keep the house cooler. An added benefit will be a bit more warmth this winter, they will help direct the wind away from the windows.

Did you know that windows lose more heat than anything else in your house? If you can afford them you should get double pane windows. If you can't, then get some plastic to stretch across them even if it's a cheap clear plastic drop cloth. Even better in my opinion is that if you're rather handy in a wood shop is to build your own which I will be doing later on.

My wife and I were discussing my making new kitchen cabinets so I'll probably be doing that before the windows. I'll post pictures of that project after I complete it. Actually, it shouldn't be all that much material after I started thinking about it. Probably the worst part of it will be getting the glass home for the upper cabinet doors. I think they'll look really nice though.

21 Days

Today is the last day that 21 Days will be on promo. If you don't have a copy you may want to grab it, just click its cover to the left. Tomorrow, I will be putting it on Smashwords and one other site.
