Mike Names the Lights, New Kilty Conscience Cover Vote, Book Giveaways and Deals

By Kidfreeliving @kidfreeliving

A Light by Any Other Name…

My husband Mike is obsessed with “smart bulbs” and “smart sockets” now, so instead of clicking a button now I have to ask Alexa or Google Assistant to turn on my lights.

But do I say, “Hey Google, turn on the bedroom lights?”

Nooo….that would be too easy.

Mike gave all the lights names.  I have to walk into the bedroom and say “Alexa, turn on Hanky and Panky.” That turns on our two bedroom lamps. And in the front room, I have to say “Hey Google, turn on Love and Hope.” That turns on the two family room lights. But that also means when I turn them off, I have to ask Google to TURN OFF HOPE AND LOVE. And when I do, Mike looks at me disapprovingly and clucks his tongue, shaking his head sadly…like I’ve ruined all his hopes and dreams.

*sigh*

Kilty Conscience Cover

So I have a new cover for Kilty Conscience (Kilty 2) to run by you!

Without giving too much away for those of you who haven’t read it yet, in this book, Broch (Kilty himself) goes though a bit of a romantic struggle, which pulls him away from the main lady (Catriona). So I

thought a cover where he looks like he’s walking away, all sexy like, shakin’ that kilt would be a good idea. Sexy, drama…and still a little funny, because there’s a time-traveling Scottish dude walking down the street.

I think this sticks with the new dramatic thrilling theme that I just added to the first book Kilty as Charged (which is 99c if you didn’t know…)…

Let’s take a quick vote, and feel free to leave your comments at the bottom too!

Do you like the new cover of Kilty Conscience?

  • Yes! Shake that kilt, Broch!
  • Nope.
