I still haven’t gotten to where I want to be editing wise. I need to balance my hours in the day better. I want to try and get These Haunted Hills in for consideration in the next few months. It’s been done for more than a year but my injury took up all of last year.

So have some more of Cassia and Josh talking about his relationship with Brendan.

Cassia turned her attention to the tv, popping a piece of tofu into her mouth. She chewed slowly before asking, “Do you think it’s possible that his son is haunting him?”

“God, I hope not. He’s never said that he thinks so, but he keeps Connor close. That pendant he wears, it contains a little bit of Connor’s ashes.”

That’s somewhere between beautiful and depressing as hell.”

“That’s a perfect description of Brendan, truth be told.”

She bumped his shoulder. “Are you happy, Josh? I mean you’re usually very upbeat. Are you going to be able to handle this relationship?”

He shook his head, wishing to hell he could say yes without reservation. “I wish I knew. All I can do is try, right?”

Welcome to 2022. I have no real big resolutions other than maybe to be more present on my social media and do a little better job of editing my stuff because last year was a wash. Given the fact I spent months hospitalized I think I can give myself a break though.

I’m picking back up with <i>These Haunted Hills</i> Josh is talking to his BFF Cassia about being an official couple with Brendan (and her bashing on his idea to grow a beard)

Josh chuckled. “I think I’ll get Brendan’s opinion on the beard.”

“Don’t make the poor man flee in horror!”

“Don’t worry. I’m pretty sure the ghosts will do that. Brendan seems…skittish is the word for it.”

Some are,” Cassia agreed. “Of course, you have gone to a pretty scary place alone.”

“That’s where he first kissed me.” Josh let his head drop back against the couch pillows.

Are you serious?”

Shocked the hell out of me. And the ghosts didn’t like it one bit.”
