Introversion and e-DNA in Loch Ness

Nessie

Parts of SOUL SIGN, the third book in the Zackie Stories, will take place in Scotland. All things Scottish draw my attention these days and I do have a fondness for monsters, so…

So, the Loch Ness Monster is an introvert. According to lore, the beast rarely makes public appearances, which is completely consistent with introversion. (Check this previous post on defining introversion if you don’t believe me.) The sparse history of all eye-witness accounts can be found on the Loch Ness Information Website, but a quick summary of the highlights is included below.

SOUL SCENT Book Trailer

HUZZAH!  For your viewing pleasure, using an excerpt from the story, a new SOUL SCENT book trailer has just been released. Why was an infant abandoned in an old churchyard?

From the back cover:

Troubled psychic Fia leads a double life. As a ground pounder for Search And Rescue, she finds the lost and vulnerable living and brings them to safety. As a servant to an ancient and indifferent Psychopomp, her mission is no less crucial – to help the suffering dead cross over to the afterlife. Her worlds collide after a distraught woman with a gun disappears into the woods and the rescue becomes a body recovery.

When a frantic hammering erupts from the empty SAR team trailer, Fia appeals for help to Cam, irascible Brit, mentor and Psychopomp aficionado. But nothing is what it seems and a straightforward case soon goes sideways. Will Fia and Cam be able to uncover the shocking truth behind the final act of a desperate woman and free her tortured earthbound spirit?

The second novel of the ZACKIE STORIES.

Introvert’s Guide to Immortality in the Digital Afterlife

budapest_reference_connectome

What if the last words said about a person are not the eulogy? Whatever is said as  someone’s mortal remains are laid to rest is probably the nicest things anyone will ever say. Faults and failings are overlooked and only the good things are remembered. Now, all this heartwarming and nostalgic reminiscence will be ruined as modern science looks for a way to bring back the consciousness of the dearly departed.

Introvert Wisdom: If you like it, put a review on it (with apologies to Beyoncé)

Phil Rickman’s The Wine of Angels has planted the seed for my next obsession. I need to read this series. The main character, Merrily Watkins, is a single mother and a stress-induced chain smoker, who occasionally gives in to swearing when provoked. She is also the vicar of a small English village who is on a path to becoming an exorcist, dispelling dark influences and cleansing the residue of acts that leave a mark upon the present.

The Introvert, Post-operative Delirium and Goats

My name is Reyna and I have a goat obsession. It seemed like a harmless eccentricity, so I never mentioned it to the doctors. But I wasn’t always this way.  Continue reading “The Introvert, Post-operative Delirium and Goats”

Readying for the New Year Introvert-Style

2018 arrives

Is it 2018 already? I am behind on my writing…

To ready myself for the New Year’s Eve festivities and to prepare for writing the Scotland portion of the story in the upcoming Zackie Story, SOUL SIGN, I’ve been studying RBN Bookmark’s guest post.  To quote RBN: “… the further north you travel it seems the wiser people become, so it`ll come as no surprise when I say the Scots are undoubtedly amongst the wisest in the British Isles.” And despite cultivating a reputation for being aloof and dour, a recent culture map created by Cambridge University describe Scots as being extraverted. But heck, no one is perfect.

Hogmanay is the Scots word for the last day of the year. Continue reading “Readying for the New Year Introvert-Style”

The Introvert Versus the Nasty Cocker Spaniel Ear

George

George the Cocker Spaniel was originally introduced in a previous post that told you all about the introverted Plott Hound, Zackie-O. George is typical of his breed, strongly attached to his family and perennially cheerful, forever wagging his stumpy little tail. This story gets more interesting when you consider that when I bring a dog to the vet, it is not the Plott Bear Hound who needs to wear a muzzle.
