Fantasy/romance writer Mona Hanna. I like kittens.

Please please please donate if you can.

I really hate to do this... But I need your help...

Reblogged from Archer's Asylum:

Last Thursday Lissa (my better half) and I adopted a new cat.

 

She is gorgeous, the sweetest little thing ever. She loves cuddles and is so squee she made my heart melt... And I'm not swayed easily. 

 

But when we got her home we noticed something was wrong, see she sneezed on Lissa and the discharge was streaked with blood and one of her hind legs didn't move properly... We took her to the vet. They ran blood tests and determined she had a cold like infection. They did X-rays and then we got some bad news.

 

This sweet, adorable little one year old cat had been living wild in the middle of nowhere in Australia. She has scarred little ears. She's skinny and small... And she was hit by a car. Her pelvis and leg had been broken and her hip had been dislocated. The fractures healed quite well, if not perfectly, but the dislocation didn't. The ball at the top of the femur is out of place and needs surgery to fix it.

 

The diagnosis cost us nearly $600. The surgery could cost us another 1500. We need help.

 

We have set up a GOfundme account to help raise $2000 to cover all the vets bills.

We want to make her life as happy and comfortable as we can. And we want her to be healthy...

 

Please help us.

This series is a spin off to my High Witch Series.

 

Seventeen years have passed since Ariel and Hallie worked together to defeat Innes. The child High Witches Erica and Julia are now teenagers, facing their own challenges.

 

When Erica meets Gareth, she feels excited that she may have found her first love and wants to see him as much as possible. But a vision featuring Erica and the dreaded test darkens her world and leaves her wondering who the mysterious blond man from her vision is.

 

Gareth is falling for Erica, but he’s hiding a dark secret. If she knew, she would despise him forever. He hates deceiving her but feels trapped. He has to choose between saving his father or protecting the woman he’s falling in love with. He can’t bear to hurt either, but a dark stranger has other ideas.

 

This is a NOVELLA of approximately 22,000 words.

A note about depression

It's weird. I'm going through quite a bad bout of depression at the moment, and it's weird how distorted your thinking becomes. You go to such a dark place, become so trapped in a morose state of mind, that you forget how it is to see and feel things normally.

 

I found a note I had written to myself when I had been feeling badly in the past, and it said that I'm a good person and am not doing anything wrong, I'm just feeling terrible right now. I looked at that note and I thought, "Really? I'm a good person? Me? And I'm not doing anything wrong? You've got to be joking."

 

That's how messed up my thinking has become. The thought that I might be a decent person who isn't doing horrible things astounded me. I'm not saying I'm perfect and don't make mistakes, but I'm not a terrible person who's doing everything badly. Yet that's what I truly believe when I'm in a depressed state.

 

I've got to not be so hard on myself. I've got to realise that I'm alright, my bad feelings are not my fault, and I'm NOT a bad person. I was feeling quite good for a long time but a change was made to my medication and now I'm really suffering. Unfortunately all I can do is wait for my drugs to work again, however many months that takes.

 

But I needn't hate myself. I needn't blame myself. I'm okay. If I can only remember the dark way I feel isn't an indication of who I am, and try to cling to the positive things I know about myself. Then I can get through this. Hopefully other people suffering with depression will find positive thoughts to cling to too.

I WANT A SANDWICH.
But you've eaten all your calories for today.
*thinks about it*
SANDWICH TIME.
Mona, this is why you've stayed the same weight for six months.
IT HAS VEGETABLES SO IT'S OKAY.
Oh, you.

 

Currently Writing - High Witch Next Generation

Hi everyone! I just wanted to tell you about the book I’m currently writing. The working title is “High Witch – Next Generation,” and it’s set 17 years after my High Witch trilogy. The main characters are the children of Ariel, Hallie and Alexandra, with the primary characters being Erica, Ariel’s daughter, and Seth, her love interest.

 

I’m having a lot of fun writing this book and am nearly done. I’ve written eleven chapters and think there’s about 5-6 more chapters to go. I think the book will be about the length of the first High Witch book, maybe a little longer. I’m really happy with it so far!

 

The book is still a while away from publication as once I finish it it still has to go through the beta reading and editing process. I’ll let you guys know when it’s close to being published.

 

I wanted to apologize for abandoning my book Darian (Prentor Book 3). I wasted a lot of time trying to write it and only managed about five chapters. I usually finish my books but for some reason this one wasn’t working, and I finally had to leave it and move on to something else. I’m sorry to anyone who was expecting it. I don’t know if I’ll ever finish it, but I’ll keep a third Prentor book in mind as I feel there’s more to do with those characters.

 

That’s it for now. Smooches!

 

Love, Mona :)

Blurb:

 

Ariel is getting used to being a new mother and is excited to see her best friends Hallie and Sean again. She just wants to spend time with them and relax and hear about their wedding. Unfortunately, relaxing is the last thing any of them can do on this visit.

 

Thrust into a new place, the High Witches are delighted to find the fourth—but the circumstances couldn’t be worse. A group of men are determined to stop them from casting a spell that could change the world, bringing immense joy but also great disaster. The risks of the spell might be beyond their ability to handle.

 

A great darkness is coming. It will take more than two High Witches to stop it: it will take a coven.

 

High Coven is the third and final book in the High Witch series.

 

Thanks everyone! :) <3
