Dad’s Plumerias

Missing my Dad on Mother’s Day. I wish he was with us to celebrate my 10th year as a mother🦋

These plumeria came from sticks of the original Hawaiian plumeria Dad got while we were there in 1984, When I was 2 years old. By keeping my flowers blossoming, I feel like some part of him is still with me, always sending signs. Love you, Dad

I’m sure for some, you can relate if you’ve lost a parent. My dad suffered from Alzheimer’s disease for 15 years before he finally let go of his suffering and passed. I was glad his pain was over more than anything when he died. 

For others, perhaps you have a crazy parent or family-member who drives you nuts, or may not have spoken to for a while. Believe me, I can relate to that too. Been there. 

You can’t choose your family, only what you learn from them. I have a person in my family, not my mom, that I have learned to walk away from this past year. She has too many problems for me to deal with aside from my own. It really has been better for me that we haven’t spoken, and I prefer to keep it that way. 

Maybe it helps to search for signs. I feel the plumeria help me to keep my dad’s ‘memory’ alive. If they never bloomed, I doubt I would take that as a sign that he was completely gone though – I would probably find something else to help me cope. 

So, for now the best I have to offer are the plumeria. 

Woes of Advertising

It’s been interesting getting this whole self-promoting thing going for my book. I happen to think it’s a great book. So do my mom, my friends (who have read it), and a few others.

If you haven’t noticed from my previous posts, I’m a bit of an introvert, so I tend not to go around shouting, “I’m an author! Read my novel!!” But you should… you’ll like it a lot!

Great features like this are very helpful and exciting to see! I simply asked for the post, and @digitalbookgirl posted! Thank you, @digitalbookgirl!

If this helps anyone, or if there are other ideas you may have for self-promoting without the shouting, I’d appreciate some comments!

Thanks,

Indelible: About the Novel

Corbin had lost his way in a literally ‘dark place’ until he met Christine. She turned his life around for the better. Now, the dreams he’s had since they met are more than just the weird dreams ordinary people have. As their relationship grows, and other strange events occur, she tries to convince him to believe his dreams are clues about his past life, but he doesn’t want to believe because of their dark and terrifying nature.

When she is taken, Corbin learns how the dreams of fighting, falling, and flying are connected, and more about his past. He joins forces with allies in hidden realms to get Christine back from her abductor. His mission to find her leads him to extraordinary worlds where the realms of myth and legend meet the supernatural – and he has played a major part already. He has sworn to go through Hell and back to find her, and he may have to do just that.

The novel contains fantasy, epic adventure, paranormal, fallen angels, dry humor, a car chase… everything except sparkly vampires. Indelible leaves an everlasting impression; an Indelible mark on the soul. Although memories may fade, true love endures.

Check it out and pick up a copy! My website, jedipalo.com has a download for a Free Sample of the first three chapters AND one of Corbin’s dreams.

Divided, Book 2 and the namesake of The Divided Series, is currently a work-in-progress and will be released in Fall 2017. I will make an announcement to all of my followers before the release date and offer a giveaway!

Divided; After the Battle (Work-In-Progress)

After the battle, Corbin and Gabriel stand alone.

“All is still. As if the world has stopped breathing,” I said.

“Peace that follows battle is a futile peace. It is time to count dead and to assess which side stands closer to the win,” Gabriel said, looking amongst the fallen. “There are no winners in a battle. Only those who remain unbroken.”

“Unbroken?” I said. “No one in a battle comes out unbroken. Uninjured, yes.”

Read more in Divided, my novel TBA, Fall of 2017.  Visit jedipalo.com for updates!

Thank you,
