I hope you're still following the Friday Blog-hop. My novel TELL THEM I DIED is a romantic adventure that centers around Angela and "Bodine" Beaudoin and their online friends. Like many baby-boomers they have discretionary time and funds to travel, and enough online friends to share the experience with. Check out the list of other authors participating this week, here:
Read a snippet from TELL THEM I DIED, below. This week, Angela's friend Jackson is still in the hospital all because of THAT woman.
A woman came into the room and introduced herself as the hospital social worker, Karen Stewart. She gave her prepared speech about being an advocate for all their Medicare patients. Jackson’s mind started to wander as he wondered how the hospital had gotten his Medicare information.
“Mr. Gooding, we want to make sure you are satisfied with your treatment and you aren’t sent home before you can take care of yourself.”
Jackson had his note pad with him and wrote, “I live in Memphis and I need help to get home.”
Ms. Stewart didn’t have a script prepared for Jackson’s circumstance, and while she stumbled with an answer, Jackson shoved another note at her. “I have to check out of a hotel and return a rental car. I don’t know where my wallet is.”
“Mr. Gooding, if you can’t talk, you need someone to help you with those things.”
Jackson wanted to write, “DUH.” But he wrote, “That’s what I’m trying to tell you.”
“Don’t you have some family here in Las Vegas?”
Jackson started fumbling with his cell phone, and found Bonita’s phone number. He motioned to Ms. Stewart to call the number.
