In my current WIP, I am having to think about how a human toddler would respond to having few adult aliens as playmates. The child in question gets to play with an octopus-like alien, a giant insect, and meter-tall poisonous hedgehog. All the things that would make an adult say "Nope. No way." are the very things this little one delights in. 
This is a rough draft of one such interaction.

“Hello, Kimberly. It is good to see you as well,” Bazal said. After greeting Heroc and being introduced to Doctor Tsao and his wife, Bazal turned upside down in his tank and waited for Dalek to get within his reach. Once the child was near enough, a tentacle came down from the top of the tank and slowly extended toward the boy. As it touched his belly, Dalek giggled and began scrambling up the appendage.

“Is it always like this, Kimberly?” Lian Tsao asked.

“My son thinks every alien in the galaxy is his playmate, Lian. And those two are the worst offenders,” Kim said while pointing at Heroc and Bazal. “They spoil Dalek like they were his grandparents. I guess in some ways, they are.”

“They clearly love him, Kimberly. That is never bad.”

Bazal now had the boy upside down, and was dunking him in the tank, causing Dalek to laugh and scream and sputter all at once.

Book Three is out, folks. 
Special thanks go out to +Fiber Babble, +Jonah Miller, and of course, +Lorelle Jones. Without the three of you, this couldn't have happened.
 
Since I screwed up the dates for the sale on the earlier books, I thought I would release Warrior's Realm a day early for those of you who have already purchased the first two books. 
Thanks for all your support!
Shawn

Mea Culpa.
 
An apology to all of you is due.
Yesterday I posted a sale on my first two books to recognize World Book Day. It was a great idea, and I flubbed it up. Somehow, in the start/end settings, when I chose 12:00am for the beginning times of the sales, the dates changed and I didn't notice it. Unfortunately, that means the books won't go on sale until midnight tonight PST, because I cannot edit the sale details within 24 hours of their scheduled start time. Lesson learned. Next time, the sales will start at 11:59pm.
On the upside, Warrior's Scar and Warrior's Blood will stay on sale for 48 hours, and I am working on a way to make it up to you as I type this. Stay tuned.

Yes, I did wrap fish sticks in bacon, bake them, and make fish tacos for lunch. Don't judge me. It's petty and hurtful.

I grew up Republican. Ronald Reagan was and is a god to me. And in many ways, I am still conservative. I believe in the death penalty. I think welfare programs, while necessary, are riddled with abuse. For instance, lottery winners with millions in the bank can qualify for food stamps because they are 'unemployed'. That kind of crap makes me sick to my stomach.
But I've become disgusted when it comes to the conservative agenda. From campaign finance, to gun rights, to social programs, and basic human rights, I think a corporate oligarchy has taken over the conservative movement, and abuses the 'letter' of the Constitution, at the expense of its intent. A year or two ago, I changed my voter registration to 'independent', not the American Independent party, just 'Unaffiliated'.
I realized this morning that I have become a full blown Democrat. Last week, I added +Nancy Pelosi to my circles, and have been impressed with what she brings to my G+. This morning I reshared a post of hers about wage disparity in America. That was the moment. When I reshared her post, I realized that I have to change my voter registration again. 
My name is Shawn Jones, and I am a Democrat.

I hate to be all politically incorrect, but all the guy with the broom needs to do is plunge the tip of it through the fat rich guy's throat and we'd be buying the ticket to social and economic equity. Just sayin.

This is why I don't support the Boy Scouts anymore. The program does a lot of good, but as long as it excludes anyone, I won't support it.

+Stefani Pederson I would mention that not all troops have these issues. Down at the boy to boy level, his experience will be strongly influenced by the den leader. If you can be around all the time then I'd say cool. But as an org...Boy scouts is a big fail.

BOOK SALE! 
 
Hey, you know what? Tomorrow, April 23rd, is World Book Day. And the next day, April 24th, is the day Warrior's Realm will be released into the wild. You know what that means, don't you?
BOOK SALE!
I know you guys need to catch up on The Warrior Chronicles so you can be ready for Thursday's release of Warrior's Realm, right? So here's what you do...
Take Wednesday off, and read the first two books. And since you will be missing out on some $$$ while reading the story of Cortland Addison as he travels through time to find his destiny, let's take some of the sting out of it for you. Wednesday and Thursday only, you can pick up Warrior's Scar and Warrior's Blood for just 99 cents each! That's two books for less than two bucks! Then Thursday you can pick up Warrior's Realm for just $2.99! That means you can get three complete novels for just five bucks over on +Amazon.com.

Plum Healthcare just took this facility over from Sutter Health, and I've been impressed with the changes made. Especially in the rehab department. There is a new energy and vitality throughout the building, and I hear patients talking about how much they love the new rehab team.

I work with seniors all over the Sacramento area, and Eagle Plumbing is the only company I refer to them. To the best of my knowledge, they have never been dishonest or coercive with a single one of my customers. Great company.

Great food. The ambiance isn't there, but it was clean and the service was prompt. The food had great flavor. Not too salty. Great tea.
