It was a Dark and Stormy night #2

Today’s guest is Inez Kelley. She’s got some fabulous books out that can make you laugh and heat up your reading, with more goodness on the horizon. I’m going to let her take it away…right after I let you know that Stormchild is now live at the stores. Hurrah!! If you click the cover to the right, it will link you through. As well, the details of the contest are just over there====> as well.

Okay, NOW Inez.

Storms. I love them. Snow storms, rain storms, wind storms, you name it, I love it. The weather is so huge, so powerful, so completely uncontrollable. Human beings and all their might are just tiny specks compared to the massive intensity of Mother Nature’s wrath. From the electric sizzle in the air before a rain to the sharp copper-penny scent of coming snow, storms command every human sense.

I was a 911 Dispatcher for over ten years in the mountains of West Virginia. I have seen the worst and best nature has to offer– Blizzards where over 200 inches of snow piled into drifts more than fifteen feet high, rain storms that led to a hundred- year flood, wind that blew roofs off houses and sent farm equipment flying, a tornado that stripped a mountain side like a razor shaves a beard. I’ve stood facing the ocean during a hurricane and let the wind support me like I was flying as I leaned over the boardwalk. I huddled in a car with a tee shirt pressed to my face as dust funneled around me in a dust storm. When nature flexes her muscles, you are reminded how small you are. Buildings that took years to complete and are made of steel and stone can be twisted and flattened in a blink. Lives can be changed, the landscape itself can be redefined. Nature rules, humans drool.

In my upcoming Carina Press release Salome at Sunrise, Salome is a magic spell bound and fed by nature. Animals respond to her and she calls the wind. Bees, snakes and all other animals do not pose a risk for her. The timeless rhythms of the environment fuel her magic and she draws her serenity from the morning sun. Nature is powerful and has more might than any human.

Cruelty belongs to man. Through man’s evil, Bryton lost everything.  Now he’s bent on revenge and death, longing for the peaceful oblivion of eternal sleep in his dead wife’s arms. A beautiful magic spell with a strange, haunting melody of peace tempts him to forget, to let go of his anguish and bask in the glorious sunshine of her love. But no sun burns as hotly as his heart’s agony and he tracks down his enemy, intent on saving his homeland and avenging his wife.

When Salome unleashes all nature’s passion, let me tell you this… It is not nice(or smart) to piss off Mother Nature. But really think about it. After the fury of the storms comes an unearthly peace. The wind caresses with soft touches. The sky is filled with a palette of color and a refreshing fragrance rises from the earth. Life is change. Storms are the birthing of a new beginning.

I hope you check out Salome at Sunrise. If nothing else, if I did my job right, you will have a new appreciation for storms and the power they wield.

Great post, Inez! You get worse winter weather than I do in Canada as well as the southern tornadoes–aren’t you, um, lucky?

LOL Actually, I am. I come alive during storms. I love to sit and watch the sky. Hubs thinks I am crazy. Maybe he is right, but I love it.

Mother Nature is playing a joke on us this week. Today it is supposed to be 72 degrees, but we could have snow this weekend. Minnesota in Spring!

Thanks for blogging with us Inez! Storms I love, snow not so much. I don’t like all the slick stuff even more I hate being stuck somewhere lol.

I love the covers to your books so pretty!

If I wasn’t living in a single-wide, I’d enjoy storms a lot more.

but to your question, when I was younger, my favorite thing to do was wake up early, saddle my horse and be ridding across the levee as the sun came up.

I love moonlight, but because of the day job, I get to watch the sunrise every morning. It is pretty, but I am still a moonlight lover.

Congrats on the new book-sounds delicious.

I love rain storms… watching the rain come down, seeing the way lightning decorates the sky…
I love the moonlight, so my choice would be to stay up late and enjoy! :D

I’m a night owl I prefer to see the moonlight. I hate having to get up early so I hardly ever see the sunrise. I do get to see it the 6weeks I’m working nights because I see it when I get off work in the mornings.

I really don’t do either, but when I’m on vacation if someone tells me I must see something, be it the sunrise, sunset or the moon, I do it.

The covers are beautiful. I love storms!! I love being at the coast and seeing the storms and the waves crashing. We now live in the midwest and we have a lot of storms and I open the windows and pull up a chair watch the show.

Love the quiet of the night when the kids are in bed and I am the only one up, so definitely I would enjoy the moonlight.

I love the early morning hours all by myself. Love your covers. Great post.

Hmm… Inez, I like the idea of sunrises, but in reality I am much more likely to be up enjoying the moonlight. Maybe if I could actually get to bed earlier, I’d be a little more awake in the mornings. ;) Or not!

I’m a weather phobic when it comes to severe thunderstorms. They can be so powerful and, having been through a tornado as a child, tornadoes can come out of nowhere. I’m fascinated by the lightning and thunder and terrified at the same time.

You never cease to amaze me. That scent before a storm I could never quite name! Copper penny… wow. How do you do it, dude!

Congratulations.

So not a morning person so I will go with admiring the moonlight. And on that subject, I really enjoyed Myla by Moonlight and look forward to Salome.

I’m definitely more likely to stay up to admire the moonlight. There have been times I’ve stayed up all night and managed to watch the sun rising.
