A Note from A Stranger


As most of you know, I am fixing to undergo a hysterectomy. I ordered a book USED called Through the Land of Hyster: The Hyster Sisters Guide. This book contains pre-op and post-op information, checklists, helpful hints for recovery and more. Advice given in the book is shared as a form of sisterly advice and women to women support. “Bedtime Stories for Hyster Sisters” are included to add to the sisterly charm of this book. This book reflects the solid information along with a bit of humor known at the Hyster Sisters website. I adore the website. It is a great place for any woman considering, getting, or recovering from a hysterectomy.

Regardless, the book I ordered was a USED book in perfect condition. Inside this book, I found a note that made my day. I thought it needed to be shared. People are wonderful. I just thought that people should know that. A simple note from a stranger can make a whole day brighter. God is good. 

I also want to thank everyone donating to my GoFundMe. You have no idea how much it means to me. <3

An Update on Me


553217_545272995496112_688697614_n (2)

Hi y’all,

I don’t do this often. I mean, write a blog post about myself over everything book related. It just seemed like a good time for it. 

I go November 15th for a full hysterectomy. I’m only thirty, I have three kids (10,9, and 3), and I am extremely nervous about this procedure. However, the last three years since my son’s birth and my tubal ligation have been hard on me. I have pretty much chronic pain in my abdomen, pelvic area, and back. It hasn’t always been as bad as it is now. It has gotten progressively worse over the past three years. It is now constant. Along with a plethora of female problems that I won’t get into because well, it is just TMI, and that, life hasn’t been that great in that sense. I’m ready to get my quality of life back. In the sense that I love my job, love my authors, love my books, and of course, love my family, life is great. However, I can’t wait until I have a day where there is no pain.

I just wanted to let you know I may not be around as much for a while. I do not mean work-wise. I am still working, and I always will be. I am just going to concentrate on my family and work leading up to the surgery. During the recovery, I will take a few days off, but then I will be right back to work. Lucky for me, I can do my work while lying in bed in my jammies. It is one of the many reasons I love my job. I’m not exactly sure how long recovery will be, as it is different for everyone, or how it will all turn out. I hope it all goes through easy as pie, from the surgery to the recovery.

Please keep me in your prayers. You are always in mine.

For editing needs, you can still get me on Facebook or at my email. cynthiashepp@yahoo.com

I do have a gofundme. Please do not feel obligated to donate. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to anyone who does.

SPOTLIGHT & GIVEAWAY (SHATTER POINT by JEFF ALTABEF)


3D-ShatterPointAbout the book: Maggie met Cooper at a young age, but even then she sensed something was wrong with him. His charm, good looks, and wealth could not hide the danger that burned in his sapphire eyes.
Some nightmares don’t go away. He’d been haunting her from a distance for as long as she could remember.

Now things have changed.

When her sons Jack and Tom discover she’s been taken, they set out to rescue her and uncover nefarious family secrets, explosive government conspiracies, and a series of horrific murders along the way. Only their colorful great aunt and a covert resistance group can help them navigate the dark underworld full of political subterfuge and class warfare.

All the while, Maggie struggles to outwit her tormentor in a life and death psychological battle of tense desperation. Will Jack and Tom arrive before Cooper reaches his shatter point?

Midwest Book Review has described Jeff Altabef as an “articulate and engaging story teller” and “a contemporary novelist of considerable merit and imagination.”

Read an Exceprt!

I’m a killer. No better than a common murderer, and worse, really. More like a serial killer who can’t help himself as he takes life after life, unable to stop even if he wished he could.

Darian frowned at the corpse on the stainless steel autopsy table. “Damn it, Zeus, I thought you were going to make it.” His frown deepened until long lines etched into his face. Remorse wasn’t good enough. It was useless. Pointless, really. Remorse would not bring Zeus or any of the others back.
He glanced at the video projections of Zeus’s brain development. His original brain on the left screen appeared normally formed and perfectly functional. The one on the right showed Zeus’s brain after he had injected him. Misshapen and grotesque, it was so overdeveloped it strained against the skull.
Darian shook his head. “Not again. I can’t lose another batch of test subjects.”
“We’re making progress, Doctor Beck. This time, the brain enlargement slowed at the end. With some adjustments, next time it might stop before….” George attempted to smile, but only the tips of his lips responded. Twice Darian’s age, he was so optimistic he could see the silver lining in a hurricane, but this lethal turn of events left even him speechless.
“We’re missing something critical. We need to stop the brain development before it overwhelms the subject.” Darian peered through the glass wall that separated the autopsy room from the rest of the laboratory. The remaining five subjects sat perfectly straight and stared mournfully at the glass as if Darian and Zeus and the table with death hovering above it drew their gaze.
An icy chill tickled its way up his spine. The others had no idea Zeus had died. They were often separated. To them, the glass wall was a simple mirror. They had no idea—could have no idea—a laboratory sat beyond the glass, yet he suspected they knew the truth: that Zeus was dead and he the killer.
Darian nodded toward the remaining subjects. “It’s odd that they haven’t eaten their breakfast. It’s already past noon. They must be hungry.”
Color drained from George’s face. “It’s unnatural for them to stare at the mirror like that.”
Darian pressed a button on a keypad and the one-way glass window turned gray, blocking the other subjects from view. Led Zeppelin started playing. “It’s just our imagination. Hand me the circular saw. Let’s hope we can learn enough from Zeus to save his friends.”
George handed him the shiny autopsy tool, but before he switched it on, the lab door swung open and Brenda Callaghan darted into the room. The normally composed, rather attractive young researcher appeared ashen, her jaw clenched tight.
“What’s wrong, Brenda?”

Always Forever cover (small)

Excerpt:

“Where the hell is Nolan?” Reese Perkins, our drummer, asked unhooking his drum set.

“Wills grabbed him,” I answered.

Reese huffed, rolling his eyes. His blue spiked hair was losing shape as he started carting equipment down the stage. I know that he’s thinking that Nolan was trying to get out of work, because he usually does.

“Hey, Don Juan,” I whistled at Evan. “Wanna help?” I pointed to the items around us.

“I’m trying to get laid,” Evan informed me.

“Well, as long as you don’t break your hand loading up the equipment then you will,” I smarted off to him.

Evan placed his hand over his heart, gave me his sad, puppy dog eyes. “Are you saying I couldn’t get laid by those two, very hot ladies?”

“I’m saying you’ll have better luck with your hand.” I give him a fake smile.

Evan winked at me, knowing that I’m being serious, and then begins to gather up the wires and cords around us.

Once everything was loaded into Nolan’s truck, he decided to make his appearance.

“Where the fuck did you go?” Reese barked at him, jumping down from the tailgate and slamming it shut.

“You three won’t believe where I was?” Nolan’s face was practically glowing like a high watt light bulb.

“Did aliens abduct you?” I asked.

“No,” he growled at me.

“Did you get laid in the bathroom?” Evan questioned.

“Shut up,” he narrowed his eyes, “I was in Wills office and the manager of Shine was there, too.”

“What?” All three of us asked at the same time.

“Yep,” he popped out the ‘p’ with force. “We have a three o’clock audition tomorrow. He’s checking out bands to open for Shine’s latest tour.”
