An Amazing Paranormal Fantasy Trilogy: BOUND

Paranormal fans like me always want to hear more stories, and I read my first Paranormal Adult Fantasy Novel recently and it's a page-turner! 
  I met author I.R. Harris (Isabella) at the Baltimore Book Festival in the summer of 2012 when she was presenting several of her novels, including the Bound Trilogy. (Her blog: http://irharrisbooks.blogspot.com/)
  I enjoy mysteries, ghost stories, etc. and had never read paranormal adult fantasy. When I started reading BOUND, I was hooked. The characters are vivid and very likeable. The complex relationship the author weaves between the characters (like demons who are bound to humans) and vampires will keep readers (like me) wanting to find out what's going to happen next. 
  The setting of the book occurs in the Philippines and is exotic and mysterious like some of the characters. You'll find yourself rooting for several characters and saying "why are you doing this" aloud when you read it. This is an amazing book by an amazing author who will take you to a distant place and make you enjoy the trip. I can't recommend this enough.
 It's available on Amazon.com here: http://www.amazon.com/review/create-review/ref=cm_cr_dp_wrt_summary?ie=UTF8&asin=1469953455&channel=detail-glance&nodeID=283155&store=books

An Important Message from a Cat's Spirit

The blog from 2 weeks ago was about my messages during my friend and mentor, Barb Mallon's holiday medium event on Dec. 16. This week I want to focus on a special message from a feline. Animals such as dogs, cats and horses can come through to me and other mediums because they have the intelligence of 3 to 5 year old children. Think about it: they know our language, learn commands and modify their behavior based on our communications. They can also give us messages after they pass, and this particular cat did.

- The third spirit that came through to me was a cat!  The gray cat was found on a doorstep, like a porch. The cat told me he was grateful to his mom for finding him and taking him in. He showed me a rainy day, and he would sit in the windowsill and wait for his mom to come home. He was grateful that she saved him, and gives her signs from time to time from moving blankets and comforters. He told me that she's either working for a cat rescue or thinking of working for a cat rescue, and that she should do it.

   It was chilling to me when a woman in the audience identified with everything I said, and that she was recently approached by her friend to work for a cat rescue as a foster parent. She was considering it, but was on the fence. After the reading I gave her, she said that she would go ahead and foster a cat!  Wow.

Happy New Year! - Make 2013 Count

Happy New Year! 
  I hope all of your dreams and expectations are met in 2013. Just keep a positive attitude and never quit. Sometimes we have to experience lows in order to appreciate the highs in life better. It's easy to take things for granted. 
   Assist those who are bullied, unhealthy, poor, struggling mentally, stressed, lonely or overwhelmed. Even if you're just lending an ear. It will make someone's burden lighter to listen.   
  Don't be afraid to hug someone, even someone you don't know. A lot of people need a hug and the contact can help. 
  Help a child or a homeless dog or cat. Adults can care for themselves, but children and animals cannot. 
  Make 2013 a good year in the selfless things you do for others, and it will come back to you. This is one of the lessons I learned from talking to people who have passed.
