Zombification of the Daylight Savings Time Writer Guest Blog with SM Blooding

Writers are crazy people. I don’t know if you knew that previously, but they are. Congratulations. Now you know.

We have this wicked tendency to become “inspired” to write something that’s completely different than the book we’re supposed to be writing. Sometimes, we decide that we’re going to publish two books in quick succession while trying to write a complete novel in that same month. Why? Because we learned through NaNoWriMo that we’re a super fast writer and it was EASY to do in November, so why not? Or we decide to write a novel while filling up a can with book ideas, one per day, and then get sidetracked with these neat ideas and wonder why the book we’re supposed to be writing isn’t…writing…itself. O_o Yeah. We do that.
This is just the writing part of our day. This isn’t the work part of our day or the family part of our day or the barfing child part of our day or the…


We’re already pushing ourselves past the point of no return. There’s writing and editing and Tweeting and reviewing and BETA’ing and promoting. Good grief! There aren’t enough hours in the day!

And then…we get daylight savings time!

WHAT?! You mean to tell me we’re going to CHOOSE to take an hour OUT when we already don’t have enough hours IN the day?! Voluntarily?

Do the cows care? I mean, really. I know, after coming from a farming background, that daylight savings time came about to help the farmers. But do they really pay attention? When I was a kid spending time at my grandparents, we woke up with the sun. We didn’t have an alarm clock. The cows didn’t care when we came. The chickens were just as ornery when the clock said 5 or 6 or the 5 that should have been 6.

And when you’re sitting there asking yourself about the cows, ask yourself how you’re going to get everything done with one hour missing from your already busy day.

But it’s not just the one hour. It’s the domino effect of all the things you had to get done in that one hour that needs to now be crammed into your other hours…and a WEEK later, you look like a zombie.


Happy Daylight Savings Day! You’re a zombie.

*zombie walk* Braaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnssssssss!

As Night Falls

A Scarred Skies Novel

SM Blooding
Available: March 13, 2012
Format: E-book


Earth 4112:

Raven Dubois refuses to allow himself or his Vampiric Nation to dissolve into myth. He’s trying to find a way to save his people from the President’s New Order. With sanctuaries disappearing continuously and his people dying in numbers, his only hope lies in the ancient texts of the Watchers.

Raised by the Watchers and by the President, Becca is torn by two mortal enemies. The Watchers have raised her to protect the very people the President is trying to destroy. She holds the key to the ancient texts that Raven so desperately needs. However, can she believe that the man so like a father to her is trying to murder innocent people?

Raven’s only hope for turning her already chaotic mind is to use her highly sensual nature and bind her to him using her heart instead of her mind.

[Night Fall] is a novel of political debauchery. The manipulation of society’s minds is overwhelming and scary.

What makes the bile rise to my throat is how close to reality Frankie’s tale really comes.This story is spectacular. [Night Fall] I gladly recommend it and advise college English professors to add it to their syllabuses.
