Springtime in The South

I feel as though I’m in a sort of suspended animation lately. Thad and I decided to take a few days off from The Zombie Company Crusade Series this spring so that he can concentrate on releasing the Zombie Company Crusade mobile game app and I can concentrate on my other writing and research projects.

It’s been a rainy spring, but a lovely respite! I’ve spent time with family and taken time to read. I love being able to curl up with a book and just read. I’ve read all my newspapers every day and my magazines from cover to cover. In the last couple of weeks, I’ve read Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline and Adultery by Paulo Coelho. Right now, I’m just diving into Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. In two weeks, I’ve been to the rugged 1930’s era great plains of the United States tracing a harrowing, heartbreaking orphan’s journey, contemporary Geneva, Switzerland as a wife and mother struggles with her internal dissonance to save her marriage and her sanity, and Marquez is introducing me to early twentieth century colorful and romantic Caribbean. Great stuff!

I’ve been riding my bicycle, lovingly named Daisy, with my neighbor Carole whose cruiser is named Stella. I’ve posted a couple of fun things about Stella and Daisy on my Facebook wall https://www.facebook.com/jodi.koszarek and I toy with the idea of creating a children’s book from those posts. We’ll see, though. They’re a lot of fun to write and those rides have helped center my mind and spirit so I can get back to writing. I am not a voracious tweeter, but you can also find me on Twitter at Jodi Koszarek@JLKoszarek1, but be forewarned. I am still trying to get the hang of Twitter!

Thad is incredibly busy working the Zombie Company Crusade mobile game app and I encourage you to read his blog at http://www.thaddavid.com for updates and his amazing personal story. He is a remarkable man; a courageous young entrepreneur who, I think you will find interesting even outside of his creations. He and I have completed Divide Then Conquer, Book One of the Zombie Company Crusade Series and will soon offer preorder options tied in with the release of the mobile game app. We will keep you posted.

Our projected start date for the Zombie Company Crusade Series Book Two is in June, so rest assured we have more adventures to offer. Please feel free to download parts 1-6 individually today and catch up before we begin releasing Book Two. Currently, Thad and I are discussing the possibility of creating hard copies of Divide Then Conquer, Book One of the Zombie Company Crusade Series for those of you who would like a collector’s edition. Please stay tuned on that bit of news as we review our budget and explore our options.

My husband and I will begin preparing for our semi-annual migration to northern New Mexico over the coming weeks even as our gulf coastal engagement calendar keeps filling up with fun things we need to do before we leave.

There are lots of things going on, but most of all, I’m surrounded by great friends, a loving family, and abundant natural beauty. I get to keep writing and reading, too! My passion is alive and well never faltering and for that, I am eternally grateful.

J.
