TENS LIST


What are 10 items on your bucket list?

 
Oh my gosh Laurie, because I’m such a space cadet I get all nervous when I do interviews because I am so afraid that I’m gonna say something that will make me look like a bigger space cadet than I already am or make me look downright stupid.  So when you asked me to tell you about my top 10 bucket list I was like YES! This I can do, lol how sad is that?
 
Just the other day I was going through my blog and looking at old posts and it’s just like flipping through an old photo album and I am going to share the link to my bucket list that I wrote back in 2010 because incidentally its exactly the same today as it was when I wrote it. Oh but because I am the worst social media updater in the world I have to warn you that my blog isn’t quite as awesome as yours is…but I’m trying. 
Thanks so much for hanging out with me today and super thanks for the easy question!

Synopsis:

Once upon a time, in a dark & scary place, in a frightening land way too close to home…

Crystal Connor’s …And They All Lived Happily Ever After! is a collection of short fables not meant for children; but for those who enjoy the madness of nightmares.

In the ‘Queen’s Pawn’ you’ll visit a magical kingdom full of wonder and splendor only to come to the sickening realization that when the Queen had a message…she sends her pawns.

The perils of eating forbidden fruit have been cautioned against since the Book of Genesis, but will our urban princess in ‘The Apple’ heed those warnings?

Embark on a mystical and treacherous quest to reach ‘The Ruins’, located in place so sacred that is should never be visited by mortal man.

These are just a few of the adventures you’ll have as you explore the dark imagination of Crystal Connor. Fourteen short stories of horror, science fiction, and fantasy; 65,306 words of terror by a single author who clearly intends to one day be known as a Master in the genre.

Monsters, Women, and Villains (oh my)!

Excerpt:

 
There's a whole host of benefits allotted to those, who like myself, possess these very specialized set of skills. One of the benefits is, that afterward, you sleep really good at night and I mean really good.

What?

Well, it's true, it's hard to believe I know, but trust me it's true. Sam, my uncle, sent me to this exotic land that used to smell of frankincense and myrrh. He sent us there, my brothers-in-arms and me, so that we could become proficient in the art of death. We were good at what we did too, because now it only smells of gunpowder, burnt oil, and death. That's a hellofa predicament you've found
yourself in, isn't it?

Well, at least now you know I'm good with a gun and thanks to my Uncle Sam I am also very comfortable with a blade. This ten inch beauty here is a staple, it’s sharp enough to be use as machete. But this one, with the gut hook, is my all
time favorite and I'll show you why here in a minute. Now, I can understand why you broke into my home, these are tough times, and a guys gotta eat I get that. I do.

Maybe I would have let you live if you had simply demanded my money and jewels, but, then again, I was never known for being charitable.
