This just in: Long time blogger, Lisa Godfrees, has been found alive and well following a more than five month blogging hiatus. Followers were concerned after her abrupt disappearance. When asked where she had been, Ms. Godfrees dropped her head and mumbled, “I got lost.”
Apparently, Ms. Godfrees had been trying to Escape the Room but got stuck on the puzzle, “what to blog about.” She had been desperately searching for the solution in the cluttered corners of her brick and mortar house when a stray thought bombarded her in the night.
Bloggess Godfrees reports that she will now be writing about worth:
- Books worth reading
- Books worth hearing
- Questions worth asking
- Thoughts worth sharing
Only time will tell if our itinerant wanderer is home to stay.
In other news, Godfrees’s first full-length novel, MIND WRITER, released in August! (Could this have something to do with the author’s disappearance over the past few months?) The novel is available in Kindle and paperback at Amazon. Ms. Godfrees is also offering autographed copies at a discounted price. Please contact her if you’re interested.
Born with a rare genetic mutation, Eighteen-year-old Rinee Newburgh has been kept in a secret government facility all her life. Trained to enhance her skills as a Mind Writer, her unique talents give her the ability to transfer a person’s thoughts, memories, personality—their soul—into a clone created for those deemed vital to society’s continued survival.
When Rinee’s friend and right hand to the President, Andrei Malotetnev, is nearly killed in an assassination attempt, she discovers the terrible truth—that Mind Writers are regarded as disposable, and life outside the Facility is nothing more than a pollution-filled world on the brink of collapse. She also learns of Malotetnev’s plan to kill millions of people as a means of freeing up dwindling resources needed by the government. Horrified at the thought of a modern day holocaust, Rinee escapes the Facility in a desperate attempt to warn the people of his evil intentions.
Locked in a race against time, Malotetnev sends his most trusted assassin with orders to eliminate Rinee at any cost before the truth can be revealed. What he didn’t count on was an assassin with a conscience.
And finally, the anthology benefitting the Realm Makers Scholarship Fund released in July. If you enjoy science fiction and fantasy, be sure to check out REALMSCAPES!
