Warped Lives

Listening to the Grandbabes today has just made me laugh.  But more than that I saw that our home is both fun and memorable to them.  When the word play went on today of how our home was, I was set back.  Then I noticed just how true it was.  This is how it went.

"Coppie and Nonnie, y'all are weird!"
"No not weird....wackyo, yes wackyo!"
"No no not wackyo....warped.  Yeah y'all are totally warped!"

Well they are right.  Who has color fairies flying around their home making the noodles in the chicken spaghetti turn red and blue and green and Purple!  Yeppers it happened here.  Dinner turned into a pretty colorful event.

Then when it was served, somehow sharks jumped on Coppie's plate.  Now for you knowledge, Coppie is scared crazy of sharks.  Yes any kind, live or not!

Well, Coppie (aka Dear Hubby) agrees.  We are warped!  He is already in love with the book Warpworld.  Here is his take on this book by Kristene Perron and Joshua Simpson.

It is two totally separate cultures and worlds that was meshed well together. Especially with two authors creating each culture and cast divisions, I was taken away to their worlds.  Each author wrote of worlds they know well from our 'fishing goddess' to our West Texas road rat.  I especially loved the line "Life is a bloody business." For all the ups and downs we experience, life comes with unexpected twist we all take.  Very enjoyable read and well worth the time.  Can they hurry up though and get the next book out?

We want to thank Tribute Books for adding us on the Warpworld blog tour.  I know that I did not get to pry this book from Dear Hubby's hands til this last week.  Now it is my turn to get lose myself in it's pages.  Well right after the Grandbabes go home next week.

Warpworld Book Summary:
How far would you go…

On his first crossing through the warps, Seg discovers a world rich in vita – fuel to save his dying world. Cold, brilliant and desperate to prove himself as a Cultural Theorist, Seg breaks away from the recon squad sent to protect him, to scout out prime vita sources. But to find his prize he must face his biggest fear: water.

Fiery and headstrong, Ama receives an ultimatum from her people’s tyrannical overlords: betray her own kind or give up the boat she calls home, forever.  When a wealthy traveler hires her as a guide, Ama thinks her prayers are answered – until a violent murder reveals Seg’s true identity.

On the run, over land and water, hunted by a ruthless and relentless tracker, and caught in the schemes of a political powerhouse, Seg and Ama will have to strike an uneasy truce to survive.

The fate of two worlds is in their hands.

Kristene Perron's Bio: 
Kristene is a former professional stunt performer for film and television (as Kristene Kenward) and self-described ‘fishing goddess’. Pathologically nomadic, she has lived in Japan, Costa Rica, the Cook Islands, and a very tiny key in the Bahamas, just to name a few. Her stories have appeared in Denizens of Darkness, Canadian Storyteller Magazine, The Barbaric Yawp and Hemispheres Magazine. In 2010 she won the Surrey International Writers’ Conference Storyteller Award.

Kristene is a member of SF Canada. Her novel, Warpworld, is the first in a five book adventure science fiction series, penned with her Texan co-writer, Joshua Simpson.

She currently resides in Nelson, BC, Canada but her suitcase is always packed.

Joshua Simpson's Bio:A career nomad, Josh Simpson has driven trucks through the lower forty-eight states, treated and and disposed of hazardous waste, mixed mud as a stonemasonry laborer, failed abysmally in marketing, gotten on people's nerves as a safety man, and presently gets on their nerves even more using nerve release techniques in musculo-skeletal pain relief.

He lives amidst the scrub and mesquite of West Texas, cohabiting with the requisite writer's minimum of two cats. Warpworld is his first published novel.

  1. Lenore, it's great to see the video of you, Dear Hubby and the grandbabes! Loved it :) And I'm glad he enjoyed Kristene and Josh's sci-fi adventure. It really is a treat getting to read a novel written by two different authors, isn't it?

  2. Thanks so much Lenore & Dear Hubby! We're working around the clock to get the next one out, I promise. ;)



Yippee! You came to talk to me. Thanks.
You know how special that makes me feel?
Like I swallowed the moon and the stars and I just shine now!
