Well it’s Father’s Day weekend (as of this writing), and I have a new book out… You DO see where I am going with this right?

In my new book Lady Hellgate, the lead character “Helga”, is influenced by her father and various father figures throughout her military career. Fathers have been the topic of many discussions throughout the media but more “spoken of”, versus “spoken to”. 

I would love to add something positive to the climate by putting together a few responses from real dads about how they love fatherhood. But I wouldn’t just ask… I know better. How about I give you some good reading in exchange for your voice?

Here’s an excerpt from Lady Hellgate:

The dark man in white stood up suddenly and touched Helga’s arm with the rod. It was cold to the touch and it made her happy. She was no longer thinking of (spoiler) or feeling sorry for herself as the room got lighter and lighter. It was as if someone was fading out all the colors and shadows of the world into pure, white light. She was happy for it to happen, the magic of the rod making her emotions lighten, and the past pain fell away like loose clothes as she closed her eyes in bliss and enjoyed it.

She thought of her father and how much she had turned out to be like him. It was unfortunate that he didn’t have a friend like Cilas MEC…
