Hi there. Hope you’re doing well today. Me? I’m wondering what the heck is happening. I mean, the world’s gone crazy. The Cubs win the World Series, Trump’s elected president, it’s a Federer-Nadal final at the Australian Open and the Falcons are in the Super Bowl! Is the world coming to an end or what? Whether you like what’s happening or not, you’ve got to admit things are getting pretty strange.
I, myself, have definitely had a Monday and this one was bound and determined to make up for any and every single Monday I ever missed! It fit with everything that’s been going on in the world. It even started out just plain wrong. You know what that kind of day is like? You wake up and there’s just something wrong. You can’t put your finger on it, but you know something is just not right. Then you start your day and everything goes wrong. And I mean everything!
That was my day.
I still don’t know what it was. But every single thing I did was wrong. I mean, I love my job and everyone I work with. But I couldn’t lick a stamp the right way today. It’s calmed down now that I’m home and doing nothing – of course.
You ever have one of those days? If not, what planet are you from?!
Days like today used to really get to me. But now, the main thing (other than my family) that keeps me going on days like today is the idea that I chose to come here. I chose this life and I’m still here. So there must be something I was wanting to experience or do or see that I haven’t yet.
What do you mean what do I mean “I chose this life”? Well, think about the idea. Does it make you fearful that maybe you did this to yourself and you have no one else to blame? Does it make you feel you’ve grown too conceited to think that all the wonderful things in your life could be because of something you chose – that you actually did something good in life?
By the way, if you read the story Tobin and I created, The Enlightenment Series, you’ll get the full idea – along with more explanations than you can ever imagine for all the greatest mysteries in the Universe. Of course, you’ll have to read all the way through to the end of the last book of the series to get the full scope of answers. And just by happenstance, the first book of the series, AWAKENING, is available online. On Amazon.com, you can access and purchase it as an ebook or soft cover physical book (and yes, they still make those) through this link: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_1_16?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=awakening+by+teagan+brody&sprefix=awakening+by+tea%2Caps%2C162&crid=1KTYN1WVT099K. (Sorry if I've done this wrong and you have to copy and paste. You know me - the old e-tarded one.)
On Barnes and Noble, you can access and purchase the Nook Book through this link: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/awakening-teagan-brody/1125546156?ean=2940157526245.
I’m hoping to have the physical book available on Barnes and Noble’s website no later than early next week. I’ve just got to get through this week, first. It’s fighting me though, so I’m not promising anything. I will tell you I’ve been prepping Book Two for its scheduled release in early June of this year. I’m excited about that and I hope you will be, too! I know Tobin is.
He’s doing well. He was so funny. The last blog entry he made, he did without me there. Instead, he had another of his friends help him. I think the power he felt at being able to "speak" to the world on his own like that gave him quite a thrill. I think that’s good for him. He is, after all, part human. I think it’s high time he took part in human society. Why not? After all, it’s partially his story and he should experience the thrill of having others comment on the ideas and scenes he helped me create within the story.
So my request to the people of planet Earth is simple: Read the story – the whole series. Discover what this simple half-human has to say about our world and the Universe itself. Maybe you’ll learn something about life you never knew? Maybe you’ll learn something about yourself? Either way, you’ll surely be entertained. Why not take a chance? Tobin and I hope you will and that you’ll send us your comments and / or questions. We would love to hear from everyone.
Truly amazing. I have been away for a while and I return to discover this available. Teagan has outlined the bare bones of this story and now anyone can access it. What they will think when they read about the different species that have been here for millennia, I can only imagine. But the fact that the information is finally out in the open for everyone to see makes me glad to be alive.
I have recently discovered a television program that reminds me of the story Teagan has created. Wars between families, mythical beasts, strange lands and even stranger explanations for the things no one can explain... these are the common threads I can see between that program and this new story. I am honored to have had a hand in its creation and I hope the common man gives it a chance.
Teagan is very pleased with the cover art of the book. It perfectly aligns with what Sarah sees whenever she passes through a rift. I wonder if everyone sees the same thing during their rift crossing or even if it will be mentioned again in the series?
Ah. I have said too much. Teagan has graciously allowed me access to the site to make this entry myself, which means she will see this entry for the first time when the public does. I hope the information entered herein does not upset her to the point that she makes this my last entry. Only time will tell, I suppose.
The person typing the entry for me has reminded me of the time and I fear I must go. There are so many things I would like to discuss about this first book. But I cannot until the public brings the questions out into the open. Once people read this first part of the story, there will be much to discuss and then I shall be glad to engage in conversation.
As always, I thank those who read this and I look forward to reading your questions and comments.
