Celebrating Being Odd
Hi Jessica! Thank you for having me on your blog today! I’m honored.
Coming into my own has taken a long time. I’m still not on the level that I would like but these things take time. And I’m convinced that it’s a life journey. Okay, enough of the reflection and on to a funny story.
You should have seen the face of the dishwasher repairman face when he entered our condo. When I tried to figure why he had a confused expression, I decided to look at the rooms from his point of view. First, I had a compromising (racy) scene on my TV, a re-run of True Blood. The particular scene of naked Sookie, ahem.
Second, he asked why I have a sign in my living room that says, ‘Vampire on Duty’. What could I say? I told him it just sort of stayed there from Halloween and I thought it was funny. His eyebrows raised another half-inch. Great. Now I’m a super freak. Pshhaa! I was fine. I didn’t care. It’s my house. My taste. Whatever.
Third, he says, “Nice lights.” Fine. This one is on me. *Hangs head in shame* I still have my Christmas lights up. I love the lights at night. Plus, my dear mini-dachshund, Leela knocked over my living room lamp and it shattered. EVERYWHERE.
We didn’t chat much after that but he eyed my writing table full of notes, papers, books that were scattered everywhere. I wanted to scream! Look guy, I’m a writer and I’m sort of weird. Deal!
That’s half of the reason why I write odd heroines. I like to have a bit of fun and paranormal. I should’ve mentioned that I’m very suspicious of normal folk. Nobody can be that vanilla. Those are the people that have the stuff in the closet nobody supposed to find. 0.O
I like the odd in the world, odd places and odd people. That’s what makes life fun and interesting! Celebrate being different!
Desperate Soul is my paranormal contemporary novella. I’m so excited to promote this book because its sequel is coming out later this year. Grand Rock is my fictional paranormal little town in Colorado. Trust me. There’s a lot going on.
Thank you so much Jessica! I would love to give a free e copy of Desperate Soul to one lucky commenter! Good luck and happy reading! Hillary Seidl
