I have pretty severe ADD, so the fact that this book was able to keep my attention for as long as it did is saying something. I really felt like I was in the middle of a murder mystery. The characters were entertaining and the whole thing felt like something that could really happen. The perspectives blended really well together and it felt like it was written by one author instead of three. Really well done..

Romance Kills is a collaboration which brings out the best of three authors. The murder mystery being solved by three female investigators had a very surprising ending. I was on the edge of my seat throughout.

This is a great read with great detail. Without spoilers, I will just say that the three writers did a great job. It’s difficult telling a story from three viewpoints. Weaving the plot lines together was skillfully done. The three individuals were written with precise detail that didn’t detract from the enjoyment of the story. The story also has some great humor and I would love a series with our protagonists again. At the end, there is a spectacular twist which left my heart pounding. I highly recommend Romance Kills!

How to Survive COVID-19 Psychosis

COVID-19 nearly killed Stephanie, yet that was only the beginning of her nightmare.

At the height of the Coronavirus pandemic, active, dog-loving mother of two Stephanie Colbert nearly died. Hit hard by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, she was forced into a medically-induced coma to protect her failing organs.

Yet when Stephanie awoke, she found her ordeal was far from over. Bound to a hospital bed, Stephanie had no idea where she was or who the people treating her were. In fact, she didn’t even recognize her own husband or children.

Wracked with vivid, psychotic delusions and initially unable to even walk, Stephanie’s “recovery” from COVID-19 was actually just the beginning of a years-long struggle against the “long haul” after-effects of the disease – and her story is far from isolated.

Since 2021, journals including Neurological Letters, the Lancet, and General Hospital Psychiatry have chronicled new-onset psychotic episodes following COVID-19 diagnosis – yet in this divisive era of politics and misinformation, it’s been difficult for those who’ve suffered these effects to have their stories heard and taken serious.

In this brave, raw, and visceral account of her own struggle with COVID-induced psychosis, Stephanie Colbert finally gives validation to those similarly impacted by the chronic ‘long haul’ symptoms of COVID-19. Supported with the testimony of her husband and verified by her physician, Stephanie’s story is intended to expose the misunderstood, misrepresented, and often ignored impact of the devastating pandemic.

Hold Fast Your Dreams
Hold fast your dreams!
Within your heart
Keep one still, secret spot
Where dreams may go,
And, sheltered so,
May thrive and grow
Where doubt and fear are not.
O keep a place apart,
Within your heart,
For little dreams to go!
Think still of lovely things that are not true.
Let wish and magic work at will in you.
Be sometimes blind to sorrow. Make believe!
Forget the calm that lies
In disillusioned eyes.
Though we all know that we must die,
Yes you and I
May walk like gods and be
Even now at home in immortality.
We see so many ugly things—
Deceits and wrongs and quarrelings;
We know, alas we know
How quickly fade
The color in the west,
The bloom upon the flower,
The bloom upon the breast
And youth’s blind hour.
Yet keep within your heart
A place apart
Where little dreams may go,
May thrive and grow.
Hold fast—hold fast your dreams!
-Louise Driscoll

“The stars stare back
In that deep,
Soul-shattering blackness
And from the depths of existence
Comes a cruel, icy wind
Raising the hairs
On the back of your neck
And suddenly it feels
Like you’re walking a tightrope
Over that endless abyss
On one sad, fraying, thin
Violin string.”
― Justin Wetch, Bending The Universe

“Sleepless nights
Spent looking at the ceiling
Searching in those etched patterns
For some sort of adhesive
To glue together the broken pieces
Of a soul crushed
By the weight of the fact that
Life is profoundly sad.”
― Justin Wetch, Bending The Universe
