Time and tide wait for no man - Chaucer

I'm not waiting for the tide to come in - it's time to tell you about my latest release from Cerridwen Press TOO YOUNG TO DIE, my romantic suspense, has had a glowing review form Manic Readers. Here's a snippet. " about suspense and action all the way. Too Young To Die is a roller coaster of adrenaline, bullets flying everywhere and a big strong gorgeous guy to protect you..."
The cover is deliciously mysterious and below is a blurb to tempt your reading appetite.

When Ellie Paxton accepted the position of Nanny with Computer Skills to care for three month old, Nicki Blesnicoff she cheerfully moved to her employer's mansion located deep in the Cascade Mountains in Washington. She'd save money, rescue her sinking bank balance and revive her credit cards. Private re-hab to treat her shop-a-holic problem.
What she hadn't factored into her new job were threats of rape, torture and death by armed thugs who invaded the mansion during the absence of Nicki's parents. A city girl not given to feats of derring-do, Ellie wrapped Nicki in a soft blanket and escaped with him into a dense, terrifying forest. At midnight.
As dawn light filtered through the trees, Jack Merano and his two tracking dogs found Ellie huddling with the baby. A nanny and a baby. What could be more innocently appealing? Rescuing her and the baby from the dangerous forest was the easy part but Jack soon learned there was a price on Ellie's head and a master criminal stalking her.
Back to my time and tide heading. A picture in our local newspaper, The Times Colonist caught my attention. It showed a picture of a couple walking along the Cordova Bay beach at low tide yesterday. Our area has been experiencing unusally low tides for the past two days. This will be repeated on July 3 when alignment of the sun, moon and planets exerts a strong gravitational energy on oceans in the area. Do any of you goddesses live by either the Atlantic or Pacific?
Mark July 3 on your calendar and let me know if your tides are affected.
And does the gravitational pull affect us? Hmm. I'll see how I fare on July 3. In the meantime, have a pleasant week-end. I have to plant some wax begonias to jazz up our garden.
