My Breath HAs Been Stolen, Again

I know you are all tired of hearing my story, but every now then

a picture comes along that

grips my heart, squeezes it tightly, and requires me to wax again, not very poetically...more

parenthentically...since my heart strings have been

twanged yet again.

I mean look at this picture! This is the man whose brilliant writing saved my life in 1999 when I was battling cancer for the second time.


Good question.

He wrote a book. I was at the

library trying to gain control over my wobbly legs. (I was having both chemo and radiation done at that time.) My eyes were barely at shoulder level when what to my wondering eyes should appear,

but a book with a cover of stark power that talked to my drug addled brain, and I took it

home. I mean, seriously, who in their right mind would NOT be tempted?

Opening that book let my body and soul get lost in the wonder of Glenn's exciting imagination.

Somehow the weakness from the cancer treatment barely registered because I had joined Jeza and become a permanent and avid GLENN KLEIER fan.

My daughter and I have scheduled a special BTR show for the 12th of April...3 days before my next bout of surgeries, so we can talk about our favorite authors.

This won't be your typical "promo your latest work fest". It'll be more a thank you to those writers who have opened worlds of fantasy, anguish, magic, suspense, love, mystery, ghosts, time travel, and laughter.

April 12th at 6:00 PM EDT at Kat's BTR show. We hope you'll join us, because I fully intend to gush and gush some more about

Glenn's books.  Ohhh Didn't I say? Glenn has a new one coming out in July, and I can pretty much guess he's going to cause a bit of a stir in many venues. Why? Let me just give you the name of the book...that should help you figure it out...


Anyway, if you don't mind some well earned gushing about Glenn Kleier. join us in the chatroom at Kat's show...

I'll go and listen later, because I'm always busy when you are on.:) I do love listening and wish I could listen live so I could comment either on the chat room or call in to pester you.:)

Love you Lin!! You have a heart that is like a clown car. You have infinite room in it for everything!!!

I'll be talking about my writing hero, N.J. Walters. I am so looking forward to this. It's so different from what we usually do on my show.:-)

N.J.Walters said...

Ahh, thank you, Kat.

Books are powerful, Lin, and can make a difference in your life. I think all readers have one or two that have had a profound effect.

Kat said...

I'm still determined to eventually get you on my show N.J.:-) I'll wear you down eventually.
