It’s been a long time…

•January 11, 2017 • Leave a Comment

A long, long time….but, I digress. I want to share some thoughts. Some of you may agree; some of you will not. That’s okay, it’s all part of the human condition. Part of what makes us who we are.

I’ve had a lot of opportunity to sit and reflect on my life, as of late. Not just on a personal level, but a spiritual one, as well as a political one.

Here’s what I see. 

On a personal level, I’ve battled some of my own demons; made peace with some others. I’ve tried to look inward and take a good long look at the person I AM. I recently watched a show, a reality series, the title doesn’t really matter, but it made me take a larger look at people in general.  Made me think. About love, and loving your fellow man. Bottom line? Be a good human. Period. End of story. You never know what someone else is going through. 

Spiritually? My walk with God, or whatever you may call your particular diety of choice, is MINE. I do not need anyone to tell me if how I do it is right or wrong. 

Politically? I’m a Deplorable. Not a secret. I love Trump. But I am, in no way, a racist, misogynist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, or any other phobic you wanna throw at me. I am a human being, with fucking feelings. Just.Like.Everyone.Else. I don’t need a celebrity to tell me it’s okay.

At the end of the day, I’m a human being, with feelings, desires, dreams, and wishes. Like everyone else I know. We just need to remember to be good to one another, or we lose something that makes us unique. Compassion. 

WOW…has it REALLY been THAT long???

My last post..October…Freakin’ really???? OK, OK, so I’ve been neglectful of my little ole blog….There’s been a lot going on, ok..OK? πŸ˜‰ But I digress…..<Ahem> I do hereby solemnly swear to be better about posting on my….oh look…a parakeet….


ANYWAY….’Nuff about that….Haven’t really been reading much..I know, you’re thinking “REALLY? YOU…not reading? WTF is WRONG with you?” BUT,I have been editing, altho’ it has slowed down a mite or two.

Just recently reconnected with some old, dear friends, George Newberry & Randy DelTurco. As fate would have it, George is an author, & I just recently finished the edits on his newest book, which we’re hoping with our heart of hearts, goes somewhere BIG (read between the lines, people….s’all I’m sayin’). If it does, & I truly do believe in my heart it will, George is blessed that way, there’s big things in the works…..Looking so forward to working on this project!!! Super excited!!! But again, I digress….

Life, as we all know too well, has a tendency to get in the way. I know mine has. Any of you who really know me, know what the day to day is like for me, & let me tell ya, it ain’t pretty. But I truck along, what else can I do? Anyway, just a quick update to let you know I’m still breathing, at least for the moment, and that all is as well as it can get in my world….;) I promise not to let 7 months go by before I post again….




A little more conversation & a whole lotta action…

I’ve had so much going on lately. I know, I’ve neglected my blog….Just to give you, my loyal followers, some updates on the life & times of Susan:

I finally launched my own professional editing company, Top Shelf Editing & Publishing. Yes, it also has publishing in the name. I have (perhaps delusions of grandeur) plans toΒ open up a publishing division at some point. It seems as though, and maybe I’m just crazy, since I did this, my editing gig has really taken off. It’s almost like people are taking notice. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I was ignored before, but it just seems like I have authors coming out of the woodwork now. And I am so very thankful for that. I have three new authors that I’m supposed to start working with, one of them as soon as tomorrow, Derrick LaCombe.Β I’m so excited to get started on his book. He’s very passionate about it, & I have no doubt in my mind, that it’s gonna be great!!

Zombies Eat People. It’s a fact, yes, but I’m talking about the organization. LOL. CW Beier, owner of ZEP, came to me & asked me to join the team. What does that mean? Hmm, good question. I now work for ZEP, as well as their magazine publication, BRAINS Magazine. I’m a featured writer & copy editor for the mag, AND I’m a social networking representative. If you want to check it out, go to either one of the links below. Trust me, it’s well worth the peek.

Zombie Walk Palm Springs, October 25, 2012. Found this on accident. Decided I wanted to go. I’m going as a journalist for BRAINS. How fucking cool is THAT? I’m doing photos, interviews, all that crazy shit that a normal journalist does. The guys who put it all together are super stoked about me coming, and have pretty much told me they’ll give me whatever I want. Again, how cool is THAT? Greg & I are spending Halloween in Las Vegas this year, with our good friends, Jeff & Laurie Dill. It’s gonna be a blast!!!! We were in Vegas once before, when Patrick was about six, and it was, by far, the coolest Halloween I have ever had. Sooooo looking forward to it. It’s gonna be da bomb!!!

Other than that, kids, life is as it always is; SSDD-same shit, different day. The band is playing, the business is good, & everyone is healthy & happy. I appreciate each & every one of you for hanging in there with me, being my friends, and listening to my ramblings. Much love to you all!!!

Review of Zombies of Iwo Jima by Dane Hatchell

•October 1, 2012 • Leave a Comment

5 Stars-This just reinforces why I’m a Dane Hatchell fan!!-Zombies of Iwo Jima by Dane Hatchell successfully combines history & zombie fiction, to make a wonderfully frightening and superbly gory little tale. Our boys are fighting the war, stuck on Iwo Jima, trying to survive the visciously cruel Japanese. As if that isn’t bad enough, toss in Japanese zombies, munching away on their enemy. Hatchell does an amazing job of integrating zombies into historical facts, to make another new twist on the genre, and makes for a very entertaining, and even educational, read for all lovers of the genre. Way to go Dane!!! Here’s the link:

Review of Beauty Is A Beast (Zombie Fairy Tales #5) by Kevin Richey

•September 12, 2012 • Leave a Comment

5 Stars-Undead for all time…Probably my favorite so far, Beauty Is A Beast, the fifth installment in Zombie Fairy Tales by Kevin Richey, is the story of Belle, who’s father sold her to royalty, in order to be eaten by the undead son. He refuses to hurt her, and the two form a bond that cannot be understood by anyone who knows him. As they plan their escape, the relationship becomes much more, & will stand the test of time, so to speak. Another tale for any horror fan to enjoy!!
