Home sale update

Well, we finally sold our house, after dropping the price again, and had to look for a new house. We love our neighborhood because of the stores in the big nearby mall and other businesses and restaurants so we concentrated our search here and found one close enough; it's on the other side of the mall, and it will make our northward treks longer, but it meets our needs. Okay, it needs work inside and out, including fencing and landscaping.

The home inspection there gave us a list of fixes needed, but the sellers will take care of some of them, and our contractor for the remodeling will catch the rest. We're looking forward to the move, but--after getting some mover estimates--we see that we will need to get rid of more stuff. We'll be having another garage/moving sale next month...

Our home inspection here, btw, passed with flying colors. Our remodeling and maintenance helped.

Cold New Planet available on Kindle

Cold New Planet, originally published in the anthology, Science Fiction Consortium, is available on Kindle. You can pre-order it here: Cold New Planet 

What mysteries will the colonists–and the consortium backing them–uncover on this slowly thawing planet? Are the colonists alone? This planet is supposed to be theirs; their backers, who had their own agenda, had paid enough money to ensure that. And they were a long way from Earth via that alien point-to-point ship. What lies under the snow and ice? How long will it take to find out? And where did all these humans–and aliens–come from? From landing on a barren, icy wasteland, now it’s almost like gridlock back on Earth.

What do you know about Jesus and his background?:

I enjoyed learning about the Jewish culture and the historical background and what Jesus' life as a child could have been like. Well written--and researched.

*Jesus of Nazareth, Boy and Man: A Novel of the Lost Years* by the award-winning short story writer and novelist G. Miki Hayden tells the story of Jesus from his early preaching as a boy in the Temple to his discovery of who he is in relationship to "our Father." A lifelong spiritual student, Hayden...
