C. Lee McKenzie --
She is one of my oldest friends here in the blogverse.
When I read her posts or her books,
I always see her smiling.
Lee is not smiling now.
She has just lost her husband.
There are no words for such times.
C. S. Lewis, at the dying of his wife, wrote:
the death of a loved one is an amputation.
When Kathryn, my fiancée, died,
for long months, I would look long up into the night sky and whisper,
"Come back ... even as a shadow,
even as a dream."
But this is about Lee ...
and a tangible thing you can do to say "I care" during this time.
Lee is devastated by the death of her husband.
And promoting the book which took so long to write is the very last thing on her mind.
But we can buy it.
We can review it.
We can promote it.
It is not much,
but perhaps Lee will look back at the support she received from her friends in the blogverse and feel not quite so alone.

What is SOME VERY MESSY MEDIEVAL MAGIC about?
Pete’s stuck in medieval England!
Pete and his friend Weasel thought they’d closed the Time Lock.
But a young page from medieval times, Peter of Bramwell, goes missing.
His absence during a critical moment will forever alter history unless he’s found.
There’s only one solution - fledgling wizard Pete must take the page’s place.
Accompanied by Weasel and Fanon, Pete’s alligator familiar, they travel to 1173 England.
But what if the page remains lost - will Pete know what to do when the critical moment arrives?
Toss in a grumpy Fanon, the duke’s curious niece, a talking horse, and the Circle of Stones
and Pete realizes he’s in over his young wizard head yet again...
