Not an Optical Illusion! I'm Back for Today with Optical Osmosis

      Yes, I'm still away from the blog, but I happened to have today scheduled as a stop on Jefferey Beesler's book tour for his new release Optical Osmosis.  Be sure to visit Jeff's blog which is linked below and do check out his book!

Thanks for hosting me today, Arlee! I’m proud to come on over here and discuss my new book, Optical Osmosis with you.

Throughout the blog tour, I’ve discussed most of the components of the book, ranging from the relationship dynamics between siblings to a kooky, snarky retired psychic who comes close enough to stealing the show with her antics. But there is one key element I haven’t discussed, and so today’s the day for it.

I’m a firm believer that most people in this life have at least one person they can turn to in times of need, even if that person might be, depending on the individual’s belief system, God. Without delving too deep into a theological discussion at this time, it can be understandable why people turn to places like church, community centers, or things of this sort. They’re looking for help. There’s a song out there that has a particular lyric which sums up what I think of this. “We all need somebody to lean on.”

In Optical Osmosis, the person my main character Greg Gnops comes to lean on the most is his sister’s best friend, Dani Staras. Both of them are genuinely concerned for his sister, Ashley, who only introduces them to one another because she seems to think Greg could use a female companion. A genuine friendship between Greg and Dani develops despite of all the setbacks going on in the story. At one point, Greg has to make the choice to tell Dani about what has happened to his eyes. Will she understand his dilemma? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
