Make Believe Blog Tour





Okay, I think I got my act together to tell you about Lynda's new story.


Lynda Young’s short story titled Birthright, published by J. Taylor Publishing in the Make Believe anthology, launched a couple of days ago. Make Believe is currently available in e-book format and includes Paranormal Romance and Fantasy stories inspired by the image on the cover. Congratulations, Lynda!



Birthright by Lynda Young

Christa can mask the pain and hide the scars, but running from a birthright is impossible.

She’s tried to escape her grief by fleeing to a small town in Florida. Much to her frustration, the locals think they recognize her even though she's never been there before. To make things worse, a man named Jack spouts outrageous theories about her.

Both spur Christa to bolt, to start fresh yet again, but there’s something about Jack that intrigues her enough to stay. The only problem? Someone else wants her to leave, and they won’t stop until she’s dead.

Lynda, way to go! You are an amazing writer and I'm so excited for you!



One quick story before I go:

Do you remember how my kids were making fun of me for being a psychotic basket case musician after we went to see the Cincinnati Symphony perform Beethoven's Ninth Symphony?  Well, guess what?  My daughter actually asked me to teach her a new song on the piano. (She hasn't wanted to learn anything for about three years!)  I taught her Ode to Joy, which is the theme from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.  She practiced it for a half hour.  (My husband of course, came in and complained about it, ranting about Beethoven being a senile old guy.)

Later, after I had practiced the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto,  I heard my son humming the melody from the second movement. 

I think there may be hope for them!

  4. Oh my gosh! There's hope! LOL. I was raised very classical with intense training too, and I want the same for my kids... I'm hoping they love it like I do! *crosses fingers*

    1. I know how you feel. It was so hard being a professional classical musician and not having kids who were interested in it!

  7. My mom was a piano teacher. I was awful at that, but played the string bass in school pretty well. I've always felt blessed by my musical education, and I hope your kids can get that too.
    Congrats to Lynda for her story - it sounds wonderful! :-)
