Happy Va-Jay-Jay Coffee
I recently discovered this new coffee that folks have been seeing me go on and on about it. I won’t go and tell you exactly just what body parts it makes me happy but it does give me a complete body-gasm. But I am always willing to try others and I had not had a good cup of coffee in San Francisco in a while and since it was Friday I decided to take advantage of of my Fourth-Wall machine and flash on down for some delicious caffeinated goodness. I opened my eyes and saw a bright red can of Coke and a woman with one eyebrow raised looking at me as I clutched the carabinger with my dinged up travel mug swinging.
“Hey, I need coffee!” I said defensively
“So does my husband. Me? Just give me Coke, and I am happy.. or a glass of wine.” she said with a crooked smile.
I glanced over and saw a good looking man with sun streaked hair with a glow about him. Something seemed familiar about him, maybe he was on one of those new paranormal shows? I needed coffee but the line was moving to slow and I was being distracted by his odd behavior. He was writing a note out in very controlled strokes and looking like he was trying to hard.
“Thulu, she is going to have to believe it is from us, if you make it look to perfect she won’t buy it!“
Ohhhhh man I jumped right into this weeks Fourth-Wall Friday and I was getting first peek at Maer Wilson’s Private Investigating Team La Fi and Thulu… Oh gosh, I think Maer is going to need more than one glass of wine when she sees the note!
*pssssssssssssssssssssst — Just in case this is all a dream, Maer wants to make sure you guys know she created these guys and is giving away copies of the short story, Ghost Memory to two folks and to one lucky person the full novel Relics and the short Ghost Memory of The Thulukan Chronicles. Enter the Rafflecopter below, and make sure you answer the comment entry, this is a FUN one!*
The Impossible Thulukans
The invitation was impossible on all levels. Impossible to have received. Impossible to ignore. Someone’s idea of a joke? A brief note, with an address in San Francisco and a round trip plane ticket from Las Vegas.
When I landed in New York, I had no idea I would also run into J.C. She and I had known each other for months, Allie had even had a chat with me in February about how to make coffee. But this was an even bigger surprise, she told me she was going to attempt to talk to both Allie and Revik. No one had seen Allie in months, heck longer! The war has been raging in this reality and I for one wanted to see how the orphan found under a bridge was faring as the bridge these days. I sat behind her at the bar and ordered a large soda water and half a sandwich, you never knew with these Seers!
It’s funny, as I grow older it becomes both easier and harder to remember who I was in the early days. Easier, because frankly, in some ways, I feel like I’m finally getting back to who that person was, and what she really cared about. Harder, because there is such a dense layering of life experiences and places and people since that time, I can’t help wondering if at least part of who I remember is an idealized imagining.
Rook: Allie’s War, Book One – by J.C. Andrijeski (a review)
One word, WOW. I realize that is pretty base, but this book was a complete surprise. Being the prolific reader that I am there is so much I want to say about how thrilled I am about this book and series! The proses are lyrical and the style adds to the story itself since it is a mystical journey of “becoming”.

Allie Taylor is the leading lady in J.C. Andrijeski’s – Rook and the other Allie’s War series. After reading the book I was struck with her love of coffee, one I share. So I decided to ask Allie how and why coffee was important to her and as a treat for us she also shares how she makes it!
