Now On Etsy!

Lately, in my spare time, I’ve been working more than ever with parachute cord, or paracord. It’s fun, attractive, and functional. 

para1

Parachute cord 550, the material I craft with, is made up of 7 strands woven together, and covered with an colored slip. Each of those 7 strands holds up to 50 lbs of weight, and the colored slip holds an additional 200 lbs. So paracord 550 will hold a combined weight of 550 lbs!

This makes the bracelets and keychains not just an attractive accessory, but great survival gear. Everyone in my family carries something made of this material now, just because you never know when it might be useful. The attractive design can be easily unwound if necessary! Some of us carry keychains, several of us have bracelets made of paracord, and my daughter’s bookbag is even decorated with paracord attached to the zippers!

Why I Write…

What career are you in? I’d bet for most of you, someone has asked you why you chose that path. A doctor? “What made you choose to save lives?” A teacher? “What made you choose to teach elementary school?” And the list goes on…

I’ve been writing for more than 3 years now. True, that’s not an extremely long time, but it’s a huge deal for me, as this is, literally, my dream come to life. I’ve done blog hops, guest posts, interviews, and I’ve answered a lot of questions since publishing my first book, Love Bite, in February 2012. I’ve been asked what made me write that particular book, how I write, where my ideas come from…

And yet, it dawns on me no one has ever asked me WHY I write. No one has ever asked me why I’m an author, or what my goal is. Maybe it seems to obvious… but I don’t write for money or fame. That’s not my ultimate goal. It’s not to see my name on the NY Times bestseller list someday, although that would be amazing, of course. It’s not even just because I have to write, because I’m compelled to, because I can’t do anything else.

I have a lovely dream in my head. Someday, hopefully, there will be money. Trust me… there’s precious little of that now! *winks* My husband and I are big supporters of the military. My husband was in the Army, we have friends in the Army, Navy, National Guard, etc. We have people that matter to us who serve.

And we know those who’ve come home on medical discharge. We know someone who suffers from PTSD. And we know how very hard it is to keep them from falling through the cracks… and how many each year do so.

We also are HUGE animal lovers… and I won’t bother answering how many we, personally, have that we take care of!

My dream combines those elements. I have to hope that, someday down the road, there will be money, and we can afford to make a dream come true. In my head is a vision of a no-kill ranch, a place where people can come to find the animal that fits their household. It would be staffed entirely by veterans, those who’ve served our country and come stateside only to have nowhere to go. Staff would live on the property, earn a wage, and have a roof over their head, food in their bellies, and a job to do that would, hopefully, soothe their souls, their spirits.

THAT is why I write. Because, someday, if I’m very lucky, I will have the money to give back, the money to make that dream a reality. I write because I must, because I can’t see myself ever doing anything else, but also because I hope to do something that matters for those who’ve served.

That… that is why I write…

Description

Nadine Chesterfield was a forensic technician when the first body sat up in the middle of an autopsy, changing the world as she knew it. She was engaged and pregnant, and her life was all she’d wished it would be. 

All that changed in the blink of an eye. The government was testing a new vaccine- a cure for the common cold- but it had deadly consequences. 

Now Nadine is on the run, not just from the creatures that were once human but from the military who want to stop her before she can tell the truth. She’ll meet other survivors along the way and learn that instinct is the only thing that can truly keep her alive.

Date Night is Here!

I’m a huge fan of erotica, and read quite a bit of it. My one dislike? Erotica with cheating spouses! All erotic stories I write are written about things I enjoy reading. That means erotica for couples. I love stories about couples, or even better, writing stories couples might enjoy together. 

With that being said, you’ll be seeing a lot of erotica from me for the next little bit. All Kendra Glenn erotic short stories will be re-released as Kay Glass erotic shorts! Almost all are 99 cents, and perfect for a quick read. And let’s face it- if you’re reading them as a couple, quick is what you want! ;-) This of course means 18 and older, please!

Reading Rainbow!!!

If you were a child, or had a child, raised between 1983 and 2006, chances are that child grew up with Reading Rainbow. LeVar Burton was the amazing man behind the show, and the host of every single episode. Reading Rainbow taught millions of children the love of reading, and I was one of them. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIhbYmO6aks

“Take a look, it’s in a book… Reading Rainbow…” 

So you can imagine my happiness to learn that Reading Rainbow is making a comeback! The goal? To bring the learning to children on their favorite devices- tablets, XBox, Kindle Fire, etc. And more? To bring it to the classroom! 

Reading Rainbow has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise money. Their original goal was $1,000,000. They’ve more than tripled that, and the next goal is $5,000,000. Why $5 million dollars? With that amount, they can bring the Reading Rainbow app to all mobile devices (it’s already available for iPad!), and they’ll give Reading Rainbow to 7,500 schools…. for free! 

This is a cause I wholeheartedly believe in.. and so do thousands of others. But the word needs to reading farther. Right now they’ve reached more than $3.2 million dollars, and there’s still 30 days to go. But that’s not enough! So let’s spread the word… and the love of reading! Help us reach more… share this blog link, or the link posted below. The link below takes you right to the Kickstarter page for more information. And more… donate, donate to this cause. Every dollar helps! And check out the prizes for donating set amounts on the right-hand side of the following link. Help raise money for a wonderful cause- I did!
