Please welcome guest host, L. J. Kentowski!
(Pssst – she’s giving away a prize so be sure to read through to the end!)
Before I get into the nitty gritty details of my life, I wanted to thank you for having me on the blog today! It’s such an honor to be here with you and all of your awesome readers!
My author bio says that I’m living in disguise as the author of my debut novel, Guardian Of Fate, and to be honest, most days that is exactly how I feel. Like many other part-time writers, I have a maelstrom of responsibilities to get through before I even get the chance to sit down and enter writer mode. So, to give you all an idea of my writing life, I thought I’d break it down by the hats I get to wear.
My Hat Collection
The Hard Hat: I wear my Hard Hat every weekday from 8AM-4PM as a manager in a manufacturing environment. I don’t literally wear a hard hat, as I’m one of the office managers, but this hat fits well since I have to protect myself from a relentless amount of falling objects, debris, and weather, figuratively speaking.
The Baseball Hat, The Propeller Hat, & the Nurse Hat: These are the many hats I get to wear as a mom to my 14yr old stepdaughter and my 6yr old son. Once I get home from work, the fun begins: school, volleyball games, Tae Kwon Do lessons, homework, outdoor fun, dinner, baths, fixing cuts, scrapes, bruises, stings, reading stories, and giving out lots of love. Somehow this all fits into the evening hours and weekends.
The Dress Hat: I wear this hat in wife-mode. My husband suggested a witch’s hat, but I’m sure he was just kidding. We don’t get many date nights, so sometimes I just dress up when we have time to watch all of our various TV shows recorded on the DVR. I know, we’re wild, don’t be jealous. I won’t even get into our bowling league nights with you.
The Cowboy Hat, The Rain Hat, & The Sherlock Holmes Hat: These are the hats I need to wear with my Great Dane. He’s big enough to ride him, hurls drool like a discus thrower, and I’m constantly searching for things he got into. Need I say more?
The Maid/Policewoman Hat: This hat gets tons of wear as I wear it in all modes throughout my days.
The Newsboy Cap: Finally, after all of my responsible hats are thrown off, I’m able to sit down, throw on my headphones and get lost in my own fantasy life.
I’m thinking about making my own Dunce Hat for those times when I just want to feign stupidity so I’m alleviated from any responsibilities. What do you think?
What about you? Do you wear any of these hats?
Thanks so much for stopping by the tour today! I hope you enjoyed a day in my life!
Guardian Of Fate
Fate Series, Book #1
Fear of death is all too common. Visions of it chill the bones and skip heartbeats. Seeing it coming and knowing only you can rescue the soul of the victim from the fiery bowels of hell…that’s downright life-altering.
Cassandra Cosgrove’s life was altered at the age of sixteen when she found out that it was her responsibility to save the lives, and ultimately the souls, of innocent victims targeted by Hell’s demons. As impossible as it seemed at first, she was able to live a fairly normal life, while secretly fulfilling her obligation as a Guardian of Fate.
But years later Fate has its own plan when her visions begin drastically changing at the same time two mysterious men appear in her life. Cassandra suddenly finds herself caught in a battle between good and evil, with her own soul on the line. When it seems everyone in her life has a secret they’ve been hiding from her, who can she trust to be the Guardian of her Fate?
