For the Love of Roses

I love roses! These are a few pictures from my garden. I had to fight rose rust and aphids this season, but I think I’ve won the battle. I had to defoliate due to the rust and have been manually killing aphids each day, so no chemicals were used.

Watercolor Class at CordeValle

I had some good fun in a watercolor class last weekend. Love to paint, though it’s hard to find time to do much of it these days wearing the hats of writer, dad, property manager, and Realtor. Prelude to my retirement I suppose. Some 30 odd years from now, I hope to make this a regular habit.

Lead by a local art teacher, the class was provided at Rosewood CordeValle, the home of the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open in San Martin, California. We were there on a partners’ retreat for my wife’s firm, and this art tour and painting class was a pleasant diversion for the spouses. As usual, if you click on the image, you’ll be directed to the amazon page for my free YA apocalyptic science fiction E-book. If time finds you, I hope it might be your distraction of choice. 🙂

If he loses her, he’ll lose his will to fight.

Shane and his friends survive the first major attack against the enemy, destroying the alien ships that came to harvest the children of Earth and turn them all into slaves. However, one ship escaped, and the aliens have captured Kelly. Shane will do whatever it takes to save her, but turning his back on his friends could jeopardize the whole mission.

The enemy invades Kelly’s mind, turning her into a slave soldier. She’ll follow their orders, even if it means murdering her friends, including her little sister and Shane. She is helpless, trapped inside her body while it performs heinous tasks under the direction of her new masters, while her sanity and desire to live fade.

Shane returns home to make a rescue attempt, only to find Kelly commanding an army of human slave soldiers, and she’s determined to make him join her ranks. Will Shane save Kelly before she gets to her sister, or will she help the enemy enslave the rest of humanity?
