Monday.

Okay, I know I’ve been lean on content. Blog wise. Because oh man, the brain’s been hammering at Half Moon 2 for the past eight weeks and it’s dead. The brain. Not the book. The book is done but for the edits and once it’s sent it, I’ll release the Screaming Camel of Happiness.

So sooooooooon.

Today is America’s Memorial Day, a day we set aside to remember and honour those in uniform who gave their lives in the defense of our country.

I have been blessed in that while I know people in the military, I have not lost anyone but the hole in others’ lives, that sacrifice a family has made, is heart-wrenching and we can never say thank you enough.

These are not just lives lost in a war. These are also lives lost in peace… in assistance… in support to other nations.

But they are not lost in vain.

I hope you are all doing well. And that everyone around you is safe, healthy and happy.

Hugs. To all of you.

The Sinners/Crossroads Boys Go On Tour!

Absinthe_Malice_RhysFordThe Sinners/Crossroads boys go out on the road, June 22nd!

We’re getting the band back together.

Those five words send a chill down Miki St. John’s spine, especially when they’re spoken with a nearly religious fervor by his brother-in-all-but-blood, Damien Mitchell. However, those words were nothing compared to what Damien says next.

And we’re going on tour.

When Crossroads Gin hits the road, Damien hopes it will draw them closer together. There’s something magical about being on tour, especially when traveling in a van with no roadies, managers, or lovers to act as a buffer. The band is already close, but Damien knows they can be more—brothers of sorts, bound not only by familial ties but by their intense love for music.

As they travel from gig to gig, the band is haunted by past mistakes and personal demons, but they forge on. For Miki, Damie, Forest, and Rafe, the stage is where they all truly come alive, and the music they play is as important to them as the air they breathe.

But those demons and troubles won’t leave them alone, and with every mile under their belts, the band faces its greatest challenge—overcoming their deepest flaws and not killing one another along the way.
