Anniversary Judging Angels Officially Submitted to Publisher

"Red Death looked for typos all day on our 40th anniversary. It was like old times, trying to work our way through a complicated appellate pleading and submission on a deadline. Judging Angels was officially submitted to the publisher, Hope and Life Press, at 11:59 p.m. on October first.  A whole minute before the deadline!

"Look at that gorgeous long, red hair. Wasn't she a knockout? She still is. I love her so much. I've dragged her to Monterey, CA. (Twice); San Angelo, TX; Clarksville, TN; Newport, RI; Chicago, IL; and Sigonella Sicily. By the time we got to Sicily, we had a baby, Ragan, twin toddlers, Michael and Arthur, and Christopher a bit older.

"What a life we've had together. Happy Anniversary, my beautiful wife.

"Her expression is saying: "This is my man, and if you get too close to him, I will kill you in some interesting manner."

The above are comments from Timothy Capps, Esq. 

The Bear agrees that young Red Death is a knockout with a steely gaze. Too bad their anniversary kind of got eaten up by Judging Angels. It's their "Ruby Anniversary." But every anniversary is the Salmon Anniversary. The Bear is sure they would enjoy salmon being throw at then. Crazy Kids. 

Special thanks to the beta readers who gave some really useful feedback: Nightingale, Badger, and Brave Captain Ernest, who patrols the faraway colony of Facebook.

The Bear hopes Judging Angels (a Catholic psychological thriller ) is enjoyed by everyone.

  2. OH MY GOSH!...congratulations, on ALL levels! And my yes....Red Death is an utter knockout! I've no doubt that she, like most women of fine quality, has only gotten better and more beautiful. Happy 'ruby' to you both!

    1. Red Death is more beautiful now. And the only girl I have ever kissed. Thank you, Badger.

  3. Congratulations on the birth of your book! Oh, please Lord, may it be widely appreciated, if good writing can be widely appreciated today, if there are enough people with two functioning neurons somewhere, to comprehend and enjoy it.
    Red Death is a beauty, but then again, Red Death looks almost exactly as I did, back in the day! What a lovely photo! You write about her with such love and emotion, she is a most fortunate woman, but I have a feeling you know you are just as loved by her. Mazeltov to you both on the book, and life!

    1. Thank you, Kathleen. Her great grandmother was born in Ireland. Glad she made it over the pond. She has always been an inspiration. Being a Bear handler takes a lot of courage and patience.

    2. @katheen: she often wore her long hair in a braid as thick as her wrist.

  4. Congratulations to you and Red Death. I hope your book is very successful. Maybe a movie contract, a TV series, who knows, could come your way. Please let us know how we can get an autographed copy.

  6. You made Red Death work on your Anniversary? On YOUR project?! Bear! Shame on you. You're lucky she didn't celebrate the Ruby anniversary with some ruby red Bear blood.

    Did you allow for the difference in time zones? Or were you 59 minutes late?

    Well, congratulations! I'm sure it's quite a relief to be finished.

    I'm looking forward to reading it.

    1. Thanks, flea. Red Death understands. I made her go into labor on our anniversary. With twins. So today is their birthdays. She is some woman. I am so blessed. Truly, I don't deserve her.

    2. So, looking at your uniform, it looks like you just got out of basic (all I see is a rifle qualification badge--hard to tell, Expert?). Was that motorcycle trip to CA when you dragged her out to Monterey for language school immediately after the wedding? And inquiring minds want to know whether successfully completing basic was a prerequisite for the wedding, or was she still young enough that she would have taken you anyway?

  7. Congratulations to you both. Red Death looks just as my husband and I had pictured her. "Tho she be small, she is mighty" ...and BEAUTIFUL! God bless you both.

  8. A most happy and blessed Ruby Anniversary to you and the enchantress of Zoar, mother of heroes, tamer of Bears.

    1. Not only can Nightingale sing, but she can compose.
      Woodland poet indeed.
