April Monthly News

Welcome to the April edition of the monthly news!
It was kind of a boring month. 
My husband's birthday came and went. We went to The Keg. It's our favorite place to go, though this particular experience was sub-par.
Easter came and went, and I went to my brother's. My sister-in-law is a champ. She fed 28 people!! And to think, we weren't even all there. 3 of my sisters and their families were absent.  Yup, I sure do feel blessed when I look at how big my family is. Having so many siblings is awesome sometimes.
I'm averaging a book a week it seems. The older I get, the slower my pace. I wish I could read more but I just don't have the ambition at the moment. With work, and life in general, I guess I am happy I still read. Do you see a change in your reading habits?

Realm hopes that with each past he helps to recover, he’ll be able to reclaim a small bit of his own in this spinoff story to Suzanne Young’s bestselling duology, The Program and The Treatment.

Six months after the fall of The Program, ex-handler Michael Realm is struggling with his guilt. After all, he was instrumental in erasing the memories of several patients—including one he claimed to love. With a lifetime of regret stretched before him, Realm vows to set things right.

Along with his friend (yes, friend) James Murphy, Realm will track down those he’s hurt in an attempt to give them back their lives—starting with Dallas Stone. He’s not looking for forgiveness or redemption; he’s not a hero. But helping others may be the only way to save himself.




Suzanne Young is the New York Times bestselling author of The Program series. Originally from Utica, New York, Suzanne moved to Arizona to pursue h…

Starting over sucks. When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring...until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth. Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marks me. You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. If I don't kill him first, that is.
