I don't think about the afterlife very often. I keep busy so unless I'm writing about it, or something happens to someone I know, I keep it an abstract thought pushed far back into the recesses of my brain. If something does happen to me, I have had discussions about what I'd like done with my physical remains with my family members.(Got to get that will written.) I'm hoping that by the time I croak and wave good-bye to this plane of existence, they'll be shooting peoples remains to the moon or just out into the cosmos.  Perfect last trip for a die hard Trekie. I'll be able to go where no woman has gone before, mixed up with several other people.  But in the meantime two friends discovered the first two interesting things you can do with your CARBON BASED LIFE FORM remains. I just had to share them and others I've discovered since. A BOX OF PENCILS   Perfect last gift to your loved ones to remember you by, a pencil made from your ashes. With your name

It will be out in a few weeks. But I wanted to share the cover for the story, and the blurb, and give you a small excerpt to wet your appetite. THE BLURB: When lady’s maid Grace MacNab captures the eye of fierce warrior, Gabriel Campbell, the man she has loved for more than a year, she hopes she may one day wed the man of her dreams. But Grace holds a secret about her past that may stand in the way of their happiness. Gabriel Campbell desires Grace with a passion just as fierce as his loyalty to the Campbell Clan, but she wants marriage and he’s not ready to lay down his sword to raise babies.
