Healing Summer And Idiots In Bunkers

Happy Monday!

Today is a super duper exciting day! Why? Because I've got the remedy for all your winter blues. In fact, this page is steaming with hotness. You may have to take your shirts off to cool down. Just remember to leave off your web cams.

ROARRRRRR! How's this book cover for pure sizzle?!?! Everyone check their temperatures.... Are we good? Should I call an ambulance?

Okay, before we all have heat strokes, I'll continue by introducing the awesomely amazing author, Elizabeth Seckman.
If the first image didn't melt away the chill, then this beautiful smile is sure to do the trick. Elizabeth is the brilliant creator of Healing Summer. While she's a mind-blowing writer of  romance novels, Elizabeth, also has a  sense of humor that rivals the best of stand up comedians. So, when she told me to pick a question to ask for her Healing Summer blog tour, I chose one to demonstrate her wit.

I asked, "Hey, Elizabeth, do you think those idiots who thought the world would end on December 21st are still hiding in their bunkers, and should we tell them it's safe to come out, or do you think the world is a better place with less dummies running around?"

Okay, Elizabeth...let's have your response.

Hello Celeste…leave it to you, my best writer buddy, to put me on the hottest seat!

What a question: Should we tell the end-of-the-world fearing, bunker loving scaredy pantsers that the world didn’t end on December 21st?

A less opinionated person might not be able to answer this, but since you know me well, and know I have a thought on every subject…I do have a suggestion.

Have you ever watched National Geographic when they film some South American tribe surreptitiously from afar? I'm always amazed at the Nat Geo staff documenting in hushed tones of whispered awe, gaping at the native tribesman who is crushing grain on a stone pestle. All the while, the poor guy swats at flies, just like his ancestors did hundreds of years ago because no one has told him about the wonderful invention of  OFF.

Then the viewers are comforted by the assurances of the documentarian, “We won't interfere with them. We don’t want to upset this rare pocket of history.”

To which, I say…screw that! Maybe they want the OFF. Maybe they’d like to see a TV or an iPod. Perhaps some medical care? A stinking refrigerator?

Yeah, yeah…pocket of living history…blah blah blah.

I’d rather see them have a better standard of living than be human zoos.

How very anthropologically insensitive of me, I know.

But now we have a chance to drop the debate since we have the perfect solution:
We’ll NOT tell the scaredy pantsers the world is still in existence. We’ll just install a few hidden cameras in their Happy Apocalypse bunkers and observe them over the next couple of centuries! We can see  how they evolve or un-evolve. And we can justify it with the knowledge that they CHOSE to separate from society.

Nat Geo has their zoo people and the rain foresters can finally get a pair of Nikes. 

See? What did I tell you guys? Isn't she hilarious?!?!? If you enjoyed your time with Elizabeth, and I know you did, you can discover more of her awesomeness, and check out her books by clicking on the link: Amazon

Last but not least, to sum it all up and entice you further, here's the Healing Summer blurb.

Maybe Love, Not Time, Heals All Wounds

Ditched at the altar…biopsied for cancer…Mollie Hinkle is having a bona fide bitch of a summer. When life sucks so hard it takes your breath away, what's a girl to do? Pack a bag, grab a few friends, and leave the past and the worry in the rear view mirror. What wounds can’t be healed by a drive across the Heartland, where quarter flips at cross roads determine the route and the future? All roads lead to Craig, the second son and bad boy of the haughty Coulter line. Has fate brought her to the miniscule Montana town to find happily ever after or will it just break her heart?

“Healing Summer” is the second book in the Coulter Men Series.

FYI, I've read the book, and I can tell you, it's a must read! So, snatch up your copy today!

Until next time, happy writing, friends!
