Chaos reigns in my household #mfrw

I should be formatting the paperback version of The Saint of Quarantine Island. I’m not.

I should be visiting and commenting on snippets that people posted to MFRW’s Book Hooks blog hop. I’m not.

Because Fate is interfering.

You see, there’s a wildfire in the mountains just north of us. It doesn’t threaten our house, but my sister and her daughter are under an evacuation notice — so they’re at my place. Below was the view last night, looking uphill from near where my sister lives. (Photo from KOLD News –

We have no idea how long they’ll be here. My niece is trying to arrange altertnate accomodation.

Anyway, if you’re one of the people with a snippet I’m not commenting on, please bear with me. Thanks!



  1. Oh, Ed, that’s terrible and scary. Prayers for you, your family, firefighters, and everyone in the area.

  2. We appreciate it, Mary.

  3. Terrifying photo, Ed – though it would make a great book cover.

    Hope it gets under control soon.

    1. You write ‘hot’ books, Lisabet, so I can see why you’d think it”d be a good cover.

    I hope you all stay safe! Hugs!

    1. Our place is in no danger from the wildfire. Betty, on the other hand, lives half a mile from a National “Forest” which is where the danger comes from.

    How awful, Ed. I hope you and your family stay safe.

    1. The wind shifted. Betty and her daughter are now back in their home, I’m glad to report.
