Don’t scream… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: The man claiming to be her father, who died 23 years ago, just disappeared. He was standing there one moment then poof he wasn't.

Now for the snippet...

***The story is in the very early stages and has not been edited.


She blinked and blinked again. Had she really seen her father's spirit? "No. Not possible."

However before she could fully convince herself, a shimmering light appeared where he'd been standing seconds ago and the floor lamp dimmed and brightened. Then the Lars Lookalike was zapped right into existence once more as if he never did his disappearing act, looking vibrant and alive and definitely solid.

"Don't scream," he warned with his hands up in a calming gesture.

"I'm losing my mind," she said to herself but the Lars lookalike seemed to think she was speaking to him.

"You're not. I've been trying to make contact with someone, what seems like forever."


Well, he's made contact now. lol


Lars Gunner, the frontman for Silent Plaids, died 23 years ago and is trapped in limbo until his daughter, Cecilia, unearths his journal and is able to see him. His death was ruled an unfortunate accident, but he's convinced it had to be murder despite the fact he can't recall what happened in his last moments of life. Cecilia seeks the help from Kaleb, a psychic, but as they resurrect the past, the secrets and lies surrounding Lar's rock and roll life just may be the death of them too.

Time to Remember… @KMNBooks

Remember all those who served...
Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. The day was originally known as Decoration Day and had originated following the Civil War, but didn't became an official federal holiday in 1971.

On the first Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery. Over 5,000 participants decorated the graves of the Union and Confederate soldiers buried there. Many Northern states held commemorative events the following years and by 1890, they'd made Decoration Day an official state holiday. Many of the Southern states honored their dead on separate days until after World War I.

Decoration Day eventually became known as Memorial day.  It originally was was known to honor those who died in the Civil War, but then when the U.S. found themselves in a major conflict of World War I, the holiday evolved to commemorate all American military personnel who died in all wars.

Memorial Day was originally observed on May 30, the day of the first Decoration Day. But in 1968 Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May in order to create a three-day weekend for federal employees. The change started in 1971. The same law also declared Memorial Day a federal holiday.
