I had been unwilling to dive into the Facebook phenomenon. It seemed a frivolous pursuit, plus I don’t live a life of adventure so what would be the point? No great pictures to post, nothing to see here folks.
But for my 50th birthday my husband treated me to a fabulous stay at Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu. Of course I felt THIS was worth posting so I started my Facebook account. I embraced the connections with family and friends that Facebook facilitates. People I hadn’t seen since high school were now a part of my digital life.
And I met new friends. Complete strangers who liked my political diatribes and shared my views. Enter CG Blade. He liked my comments and I liked his comments. Eventually he asked if I would be interested in reading his first book, Cobalt and give him some feed back. Of course I would love to and promptly ordered the book. Since CG asked for comments I felt free to contact him with the “you missed a period here, or need a capital there” feedback. I was honored to be asked and I took it seriously wanting to help a friend succeed in even the smallest way.
CG was very receptive and thankful for my input so when I came to a part in his book that didn’t please my biologist training I let him know. Again, he welcomed my input and the recommended changes were embraced. CG encouraged me to take it further. He became my muse, opening my mind to a new pathway in life. Now I am editing his next book in the trilogy, Crimson.
CG I thank you for your friendship, encouragement and kind words. Now get busy and type because I’m dying to know what’s next for Petra!
