Blog Ring of Power miracle is this: the more we share the more we haveLeonard Nimoy

Five of us are embarking on a mission to boldly go where no blog has gone before. Okay, maybe it’s not quite that innovative, but Terri Bruce has introduced me to a new way of sharing information and hopefully introducing our guests to more readers. One of the features of our Blog Ring of Power, or BRoP for short, will be  “shared interviews” — we’ll  interview the same person over several days, with different questions on each of our blogs. We’ll also have contests and other fun things.

Today I’d like to introduce the other BRoP members:

TBruce, writer of genre-crossing speculative fiction – Terri Bruce Net

Fantasy writer E.M. LaBonte – The Realms of a Fantastical Mind
Sandra Ulbrich Almazan – Speculative Fiction Author
Fantasy author Dean C. Rich – The Write Time

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to check out their websites. I’m not sure when we’ll start the shared interviews, but it looks like Thursdays will be when I post my part.

SFFS #1 – The Fourth Treatment

Greetings! This is my first time to submit a snippet from my work for Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. Following is the beginning of my award-winning short story, ” The Fourth Treatment,” which is available free here on my website and in ebook format from All Romance:

“Remember how your growing bones ached?”

I tried to remember but maybe I was just too distracted.  I’m a visual person and it was taking a lot of effort to keep from staring rudely at Jorge’s leathery, wrinkled face. Tufts of coarse brown hair jutted over his dark eyes, which were almost hidden in the cavernous space beneath his bulging eyebrow ridge.

“That’s not a trick question,” he said. “You can remember if you try.”

It was about seventy years ago when I went through puberty. Still, I could recall the knocks and bruises from being out-of-sync with my growing body.  But bones aching? “Sorry, Mr. Jorge,” I said, throwing my hands up and smiling.
