Rob's Day at the Baltimore Book Festival

Rob at his table
Sunday, Sept. 30, I (Rob) had my debut at the Baltimore Book Festival under the Author's Tent. A visit from a good friend and making 2 new friends made the day.
  It was a nice weather day (in the 60s) until the strong thunderstorms rolled in during the last hour. Regardless, it was a day to remember.
   Our friend Randall drove all the way to Baltimore from northern Virginia to say hello, check out the festival and get a copy of my newest book. What an amazing tribute to friendship. Of course, Randall made me laugh, as he always does.
Isabella and Darby
   I had the great fortune to sit next to and befriend a great author and her husband. Isabella is an author of Adult fantasy (vampires, demons, werewolves, etc.). She writes under the pen name "I.R. Harris."  Isabella and her husband Darby are so much fun, and think like us - same outlook on life: love everyone, everyone deserves to be treated equally, life is a gift, and they both have a great sense of humor, warmth and radiate love. So, meeting them was one of life's gifts, just like Randall's visit.

Familiar scenes of brutality and corruption; fear and cohesion—they were filtering their way into every part of daily life, slowly corroding the fragile balance between Bonders and humans. Like a cancer in every cell of our social and cultural autonomy, the rise of the Vampires, their monolithic need for revenge and control, threatened to destroy the collective body from the inside out. I felt sick. Not physically sick, but the kind of deep mental fatigue that seeps into your soul, your core. A sickness that makes you question your very presence on the earth and makes you wonder if letting go, if not holding on, if that’s the better choice.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
