Rainbow Snippets June 30th

Happy last day of June! Wow…where has this year gone to? It dragged at the beginning, but since beginning a new job it’s been flying….

Bernard is back out in the world!!! Wooooo. Plus, I’ve created him and Jack in the Sims 4…they’re roomies right now…so I’ll update you on how it goes. As promised, here are the buy links to Amazon, and multiple other sites:

Blurb:

Bernard Covington, suicidal and not the most-handsome man in the world would be happy to leave the world behind altogether.  That is until he meets Dr. Jack Larson. The physician takes his wounded heart and soul and patches them back together, but is he Mr. Perfect?

Bernard and Jack develop a romance, but soon the tide begins to shift as Jack’s past is revealed and it becomes a game-changer for the couple to deal with.

Will Bernard and Jack have a happy ending or will he succumb to his desire to end it all or will dealing with Jack’s phantoms keep him going? Only Bernard’s diary knows what secrets lurk in his soul…

“Ten. I wanted to make sure this time,” he answered quietly.

She walked away from the computer station and sat down next to him. “You keep saying this time. Sweet Jesus, Mr. Covington, how many times have you tried this?”

He scratched his scalp and cocked a thick eyebrow. “Oh, this is the fourth time in the past 10 years. I keep getting a little braver every time.”

Nancy cocked her head and her long brown ponytail that had been resting on her shoulder fell out of sight. She leaned her thin frame forward in the chair, and adjusted her bright blue scrubs. “Is there someone I can call or refer you to? We have some excellent psychiatrists—”

“No, please. Don’t,” Bernard pleaded. “I’ve been to some of the best in this county, hell even in the city. No one can help me. I’m not worth saving.”

Rainbow Snippets June 23rd

Back on schedule (mostly). This week has been brutal…due to illness and the weather being a nasty combo. Rainy most days and a cold/upper respiratory thing that took me out of the action. I’m still besieged with it; but it’s a bothersome item now rather than making me feel like death warmed over.

Bernard is being re-released this Friday!!! Wooooo. Plus, I’ve created him and Jack in the Sims 4…they’re roomies right now…so I’ll update you on how it goes. This is my final snippet from this book, so the links will be up later this week (including Amazon).

This week we are back with Bernard’s Diary, and things had taken a drastic turn…ending up en route to the hospital 😦

“Well, hi there, sleepyhead. Wondered when you’d wake up,” she was way too chipper but he was too tired to notice much.

“Where am I?” he asked groggily.

“You are at Adams County Hospital, Mr. Covington. I’m Nancy, your nurse.” She shut off the call light and checked his vital signs on the monitor. “Looks like your numbers are back down to normal, since we got those pills out of you. You were in really bad shape when you arrived.”

Bernard lowered his head in disappointment. “Oh. Damn,” he lamented. “I was kinda hoping they’d stay in and just finish me off this time.”

The nurse crossed her arms and shot him a look with her dark brown eyes. “Now why on earth would you want to kill yourself? You’re lucky to be alive. If you’d cut yourself any deeper you’d have severed the nerves. Your hands would lose function. How many of those pills did you take?”

“Ten. I wanted to make sure this time,” he answered quietly.

Rainbow Snippets June 15th

A day late and a dollar short…or two in this case 😦 Sorry but not sorry. My hubby was hommmmeee alllll weekend and we ran errands together and dined out and saw my family. No time for much else…which was sweeet!

Today we are back to the ‘ol grind, but with great memories of Father’s Day. This coming weekend will be eventful as well; but I think I might just have to create Bernard in the Sims and make him more ‘real’. Thoughts?? Only two weeks to go til this middle-aged bellhop warms your hearts.

This week we are back with Bernard’s Diary, and things had taken a drastic turn…ending up en route to the hospital 😦

Bernard finally came to three hours later.

“What the—where am I?” He glanced down at his wrists and saw the thick gauze wrapped around them and remembered everything. He gritted his teeth and swore under his breath. “Shit! Can’t I even get my own death right? You’d think just once I could get something right. I’m such a fuckin’ loser.” Well, time for the routine, he guessed. He pushed the button for the nurse to come. She arrived four minutes later.

Rainbow Snippets June 7th

Weekend world is in full swing at my house. Whilst hubby is being worked to death like a dog; I’m trying to keep order to the chaos that is our house. LOL Dishes, laundry, etc. all suffer since we’re gone. Luckily, kitty is forgiving and cuddles with mommy when he can (which I give him loads of opportunity)!

This week I’m posting from an up-n-coming re-release. Bernard, Diary of a 46-yr-old Bellhop has been transformed into Bernard’s Diary. I’ve set a release date of June 28th and will tease up to that date.

“Alright, go prep him and pump his stomach. Keep him on constant watch.”

“Yes, Doctor.”

The nurses and two assistants wheeled him away. An hour later, the female returned.

“Doctor?”

“Yes?”

“We pumped Mr. Covington. He’s stable now.”

He shook his head. “Good thing after doing all that to himself. Guess he was trying to make sure.”

“Appears that way. Start him on soft food?”

“No, he’ll be able to eat in a little while. Is he still unconscious?”

“Yes, but he should wake up soon enough.”

“Let me know when he does. I’ll be in my office.”

“Yes, sir.”

Bernard finally came to three hours later.
