Happy Valentine’s Day – I Survived Being Suffocated

Happy day, I’m alive! How ’bout that for a catchy article title? Nevertheless, it’s true.

It’s been a rough week all around. I spent the first three days with a virus and laryngitis, then today, I was blessed with yet another gift. Mishka has apparently developed a phobia for the sound of wind on a very blustery day. His solution? Squashing his mummy by sitting on her chest. And I literally mean my chest, while I still haven’t gotten over the cold and can barely breathe. Lucky me.

I managed to snap the photo about fifteen minutes into the squashing session and after having cajoled him into accepting my lap instead of continuing to suffocate me. He contented himself then by giving my Dell computer a tongue bath. The wolfster seems to think he’s still Pomeranian-sized and can safely use me as a human moon bounce machine. NOT.

Either way, I’m all excited because Black Hart is finally out today! Two releases in a matter of a week? Whew! No wonder I gave into a cold. This kind of work tuckers a gal out.

If you’d like to check it out, this the link. Meanwhile, I will marvel over free oxygen with a new appreciation since the elephant, er hem, Mishka is off my chest. Meanwhile, the GIF to the left is somewhat akin to what the experience was like.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Outfoxed and Black Hart are now available for your readership on whatever digital device you prefer. Also make sure to check and see if your library has them via Hoopla Digital.

Truly yours,

Author Maggie Lynn

Happy Thanksgiving Readers! Here’s A New Exclusive Clip of ‘The Cursed Ellipse’ – Gobble, Gobble

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you and your family are having a wonderfully blessed holiday!

To brighten the day of those who aren’t enjoying their day, whether because of work or in-law proverbial hell, here’s an exclusive sneak peek at my WIP The Cursed Ellipse from my Vaktare of All Realms series. Read on ahead and I think you are going to see why I felt this excerpt would be befitting for turkey day…

Unfortunately far from convinced, Heidi’s eyes flickered up to the rear view mirror, checking on the car behind us. But then they widened and focused on whatever was behind us. “Well, my, my. This ought to be good.”

I turned around in my seat to see Peter waltzing up to an enormous tom turkey that had been imperiously strutting across the road after its hens and blocking the car. We could see Brin leaning out the window and yelling after him, but Peter seemed determined. “Peter, I wouldn’t do that if I were you-“

“Get out of the way, you big, stupid oversized chicken! Go on! Git!“ Peter squawked.

“That flock has been living here for years,” Heidi murmured. “But that tom has a formidable reputation for being territorial-“

She never had to finish her sentence. And if she did, I didn’t hear it as I howled laughing.

Peter took one look at the now charging turkey and fled, arms outstretched with a yelp. The attempt he made to flee back into the safety of the car was unsuccessful, however. He gave the car door one haphazard tug before the bird got too close and he had to run for it again.

“Thank you, God,” I murmured as Heidi dug out her phone to film it.

We both chortled as they ran rings around the SUV; Peter running for his life and the turkey following close behind with its feathers fan out. The loud gobbling I could hear over Peter’s cursing did nothing to lessen the hilarity, however. I sat open mouthed as he let out a loud scream to his brother for help, still running.

Brin, of course, made no move to help him (he was probably just as thrilled as we were), other than to shout out his window, “get in, Peter. Get in the car-“

All attempts to remind Peter that he could produce Tru failed as he took a flying leap onto the hood of the SUV. This did nothing considering the turkey was able to fly. It only caused Peter to catapult off just as quickly when it flew up and pecked him in the butt with an irate cackle.

“This is gonna go viral,” Heidi snorted. “His mama is gonna to love this!”

But the hilarity wasn’t done as Brin got out to try and help. He’d no sooner stepped out when one of the hens went after him, enforcing the tom who was still chasing Peter. Brin tried to shoo it away but in the process, Peter darted around the back of the car unaware Brin had gotten out, too, and slammed into him. They both went down with Peter landing on top of Brin. And much to Heidi’s and my glee, the tom then proceeded to hop on top of them both, flapping its wings and still gobbling.

“Peter!”

Brin sat up with an angry grimace as Peter tried unsuccessfully to squeeze himself under the car to escape. All the fun ended as Brin promptly aimed a sleeping intent at the unsuspecting birds. They wobbled on their legs a few times and then fell over. Peter cursed and rubbed his ass, watching indignantly as Brin kindly picked it up and deposited it off the road.

Heidi at this point was too busy uploading the video to the internet to notice Fae staring out the back window. Fae had jumped up to watch, too. She turned to me, luminescent eyes aglow with humor. “Now that was entertainment.”

Did you enjoy this clip? It has roots in real life, as my father was once chased around our car just like this! It provided the perfect basis for this scene from my upcoming novel, The Cursed Ellipse from my Vaktare of All Realms series.

Scientific Breakthrough – The Giza Pyramids Channel Energy

I was right!

How crazy it is it that one of my scientific, er hem, ‘fictional’ theories in one of my novel series is correct? I’m still reeling around in my chair as I write this! As of tonight, there is actually scientific proof that the plot line is not entirely a work of fiction on my part, even though I started writing the book over three years ago!

In the first and second book in my Vaktare of All Realms series, I wrote that the main characters use the great pyramids (and other ancient structures), to channel energy up through the earth’s crust to perform Tru healings. Well, cue the trumpets because scientists have proven my book’s plot line to be true!

As reported by the Daily Mail just today, scientists have discovered that the famous Giza pyramid can concentrate electric and magnetic energy in its chambers and below its base, giving rise to distinct pockets of higher energy.

I guess that I’ll have to move the series from being a work of fantasy to being in the genre of science fiction now. Er hem. Please pardon my bad writer’s joke. I’m flying on cloud nine here!

And if any of you doubt me and don’t you dare suggest I’m just a copycat, I have copies dating back to 2015 and even further back for the first drafts on the novel. When one of my readers said that she felt my plot lines often had a premonition-like edge to them, apparently she wasn’t kidding!

If you want to read more about the groundbreaking discovery, make sure to check the article out on the Gizacan pyramid here. If you’d like to hear more about my Vaktare of All Realms series, book one ‘CURSED’ being released this fall, make sure to check it out here.
