LJ HOLMES PRESENTS HURRICANE WARNING


Muse It Up Publishing and it's COVER ART GODDESS is happy to bring Ginger Simpson's new tale HURRICANE WARNING to the reading world on January 1, 2011...what a wonderful way to celebrate the dawn of a new year and a new era in reading excellence.


Linda is newly divorced, free and has bought her new home in the temperate state of Florida where palm trees grow tall, oranges scent the air, and air conditioners, not heaters are the major appliance of necessity.


Isn't her new house adorable? And Linda is just glowing with pride when the real estate agent reaches out to hand her the...

...key. Humming all her beloved songs, she unpacks with a sense of joy and adventure. The past is behind her and the future stretches out with the richness of possibility before her...until she flips on the news.


A hurricane...a HUGE hurricane in barreling down upon them and there's little time. Linda looks around frantically. What is she supposed to do? She knows she supposed to board things up. Windows? Yes, she was pretty sure they needed boarding up. Doors? If you board up doors how do you escape if you need to leave? Oh Lord, was her precious little home going to be reduced to pulverized kindling? Her eyes darted wildly. Outside the storm squealed.



In her mind's eye she called forth a picture of the swirling clouds and the ominous eye at the center. How could a little thing like her prepare her home to survive that? A pounding knock at her door has her turning her terrorized gaze that way. Who would be insane enough to be out in this? Insane? Why did that word become a giant inside her panicked mind?





He calls out, and yes, okay, she remembered his sister. Did he need help?

Carlos her neighbor, was here to help HER? She closed her eyes and said a silent prayer of thanks to whatever angel was watching over her...and yes, he wasn't half bad on those eyes when she had them open either.


Together they prepared her home for the massive rage of nature about to unleash itself upon them, and he stayed. Did he stay because he thought she was afraid of the power of the storm, or did he stay because of the power of the unknown that was swirling into life because of, or in spite of the storm?

Linda and Carlos emerged from the storm to a rainbow, cloudless skies and future possibilities that seem so much brighter now that the hurricane warnings were past. Join them on January 1, 2011 and find out what they discovered during those hours while nature swirled, howled, and exploded around them.




Coming in October 2010, though Muse it Up Publishing is going to be opening its e-doors to the world with the release of five of its titles. (Please go to its website at http://www.museituppublishing.com/ for news about the five titles)

Oh my gosh, Lin. What a wonderful tribute to me and my work. I'm honored to appear on your blog, and you did a wonderful job of relaying the essence of the story. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. :)

Looks like another one for my reading list. I'm going to be so busy reading, I won't have time to write. That's not good, but these books sure sound good. Terrific job again, Lin.

Phyllis, everyone who knows Ginger is lucky. I consider myself very very lucky and now that I have found her I'm not giving her back :>)

Great tribute to your work Ginger, but you deserve all the accolades you get. You have worked hard, weathered the ups and downs and come out on top, because you are a talented author as well as being a gutsy lady.

Cheers

Lin, Ginger, what can I say but wow, wow, wow. I knew you had tons of books out there, Ginger, but reading Lin's build up simply astonished me.
