So I hope you will be one of the first people, to get your advance copy of my newest novel. I look forward to meeting all of you @ Miami Book Fair !! On a more personal note the last few months have been extremely busy. Not only have I been putting my finishing touches on my novel. I have been dealing with Hurricane Irma, we just started getting food deliveries @ my neighborhood grocery store two weeks ago. I have never in my life seen bare shelves @ a grocery store. Even though I live in a state that has hurricane season from June 1- November 30th every year. We lost our electricity for two days but that wasn’t as bad as TX & LA and Puerto Rico. So yes I’m not trying to  downplay any other Hurricanes we’ve had. I just hope and pray Texas, Louisiana, Key West, FL, PR and US Virgin Islands get back to normalcy soon. Then who can forget the horrific massacre in Los Vegas, NV!! I send the deepest condolences to the 58 people who passed and send Get Well Vibes to the 527 people still recovering in the hospitals.

On a happier note my little grandson celebrated his first birthday last weekend. I can’t believe it’s been a year since he was born. He totally shocked his grandma (me) when I went to see him. I had my back to the little guy turned to take a seat on the couch and OMG he was right there in front of me!! He has discovered his little legs he is starting to walk. Still a wee bit wobbly in his step but I have confidence he will figure it out in due time. Anyway, I hope to see everyone in Miami on 11/18/17. I truly hope you enjoy the new installment, of my Popstar Lover Series as much as I enjoyed writing it!! Please remember to write a review for any of the novels of mine on goodreads.  

Kindest Regards,

Heroism of USS Fitzsgerald Collision

Warning: got this article from Military.com!! I didn’t write this article personally & Take No Credit For It!!  Just a Heroic Article That Needs To Be Told!! Read with caution some content might be sensitive to some. Apologizing in advance meaning no disrespect to any family members. I just stand in awe of your love one’s Bravery & Heroism and Patriotism! I’m truly sorry for the loss of these amazing souls! 

An Article Written by: Stars and Stripes Writer via http://www.military.com on August 18th, 2017 by. Tyler Hlavac

Stars and Stripes | 18 Aug 2017 | by Tyler Hlavac


YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — An initial report into the USS Fitzgerald collision released by the Navy Thursday details the terror sailors experienced in the moments after the collision along with the heroic efforts crew members undertook to save lives.
The accident happened about 1:30 a.m. when the destroyer was struck by the ACX Crystal, a Philippine-flagged merchant ship, said the report by investigating officer Rear Adm. C.F. Williams. The Fitzgerald was hit on its starboard side above the waterline, severely damaging the commanding officer’s cabin. The merchant ship’s bulbous bow battered the starboard access trunk, a space that opens into the ship’s Berthing 2 area, which has space for 42 crew members. Thirty-five sailors were there at the time of the collision.


The Crystal tore an approximately 13-by-17 foot hole into the Fitzgerald, the report said. The door between Berthing 2 and a starboard access trunk pulled away from the ceiling and bent to a 90-degree angle. “As a result, nothing separated Berthing 2 from the onrushing sea, allowing a great volume of water to enter Berthing 2 very quickly,” Williams wrote in the report.

Within 30 to 60 seconds, the space was almost entirely flooded, he added.
Berthing 2 had three escape routes, two of which were on the portside of the ship — a ladder and an escape scuttle. The third, a ladder on the starboard side near the point of impact, was rendered nearly inaccessible because of flooding and debris, the report said.
At the moment of impact, some sailors described hearing “a loud noise,” Williams wrote. Others felt an “unusual” movement of the ship and some crewmembers were thrown from their racks.


“Still other Berthing 2 sailors did not realize what had happened. Some of them remained asleep,” wrote Williams, who added one sailor “saw another knocked out of his rack by water.”
The crew members of Berthing 2 spurred into action after they found themselves in a “rapidly flooding space,” the report said, with sailors yelling “Water on deck!” and “Get out!”


Sailors woke up fellow crew members, and senior sailors checked beds to account for their shipmates, it said. Sailors calmly formed lines to climb the ladder out of the berthing area, even though the water was soon waist deep and then neck deep. Debris, including mattresses, furniture and wall lockers floated through the area, impeding the evacuation.
During the evacuation, an unnamed sailor reported that Fire Controlman 1st Class Gary Leo Rehm Jr. pushed him out from under a falling locker. Rehm, 37, of Elyria, Ohio, was one of the seven who perished in the accident.


Heroic Actions


Two sailors who stayed at the bottom of the ladder to assist evacuees “likely saved the lives of at least two of their shipmates,” Williams said in the report. “They did what is expected of sailors in such a situation.”
The report said the two sailors overseeing evacuations at the ladder waited until the water level was neck deep before climbing out of the berthing area. From the top of the ladder, the sailors continued looking for survivors and, reaching into the dark water, were able to rescue two crewmembers who were completely submerged.


The last sailor pulled from the area was in the bathroom at the time of the accident when a “flood of water knocked him to the floor,” the report said. He moved toward the main berthing area and later found himself pinned between the lockers and ceiling of Berthing 2. After grabbing a pipe in the ceiling and pulling himself free, he managed to swim his way to the only light available, which was coming from the ladder area the sailors had used to evacuate.


The sailor was pulled from the water “red-faced and with bloodshot eyes,” saying he had taken his “final breath” before being pulled from the water, Williams wrote.
While the other evacuees left Berthing 2 from the portside ladder, a sailor who had a bed on a top rack near the starboard access trunk attempted escape from the starboard side ladder well, the report said. He initially tried to leave his rack but accidentally kicked another sailor, so he then decided to wait until everyone else was out of the berthing area. He then jumped from his rack, landing in chest-deep water. The sailor tried to make his way to the escape route, fighting against the water. He heard someone yell “go, go, go it’s blocked” but was already underwater, with his escape impeded by furniture debris clogging the escape route.


The sailor said he took some breaths in a small air pocket and began to swim to the exit, according to the report. The sailor said he at one point lost consciousness due to lack of oxygen and doesn’t remember how he escaped Berthing 2. He managed to make his way to Berthing 1, which was also flooding. There he caught his breath and made it to the main deck before collapsing.
That sailor was later evacuated by helicopter to the Yokosuka Naval Base Hospital. The report said he is the only one to escape through the starboard exit route.


Seven Victims


Sailors who escaped Berthing 2 immediately began to assist with disaster-response efforts, the report said. They took on a variety of roles, from assisting damage-control efforts to treating injuries and handing out food and water. One evacuee stood watch for 15 hours in aft steering after power was lost.
Of the 35 sailors in Berthing 2 at the time of the collision, 28 escaped and seven perished, the report said. The seven sailors’ beds were in rows three and four, which were closest to the starboard escape route and directly in the path of water rushing into the ship.


After the ship returned to Yokosuka, divers at first were not able to access Berthing 2 due to a lack of equipment and trained divers, the report said. The sailors’ bodies were recovered the following day, June 18, after divers were able to access Berthing 2 via the hole in the starboard side of the ship.


Williams said in the report that the flooding of Berthing 2 was unavoidable, but that the actions of the sailors prevented the tragedy from being worse.
“The sailors assigned to Berthing 2 should be commended for their response to the dangerous and deadly threat they faced,” Williams wrote. “They fought hard in the dark of night to save their ship. Through their swift and in many cases, heroic actions, members of the Fitzgerald crew saved lives.”

Downside to Obamacare For Middle Class

Hello Lovelies,

I usually don’t go into politic but as a concerned American. I just have to let everyone know my experience. Currently, just for my husband and I we pay $2,000 monthly with a $10,000 deductible. Not to mention it goes up higher yearly and it’s not right. So we pay for everything until deductible is met. 

Before O-Care Co-Pays  Prices:

Primary Care Doctor used to be $25.00  –  now $55.00

Specialist (Gyn, Orthopedic ETC)  Before $50.00 – now $75.00

X-rays ( Mammogram ETC) Before $40.00 – now $200.00

Not to mention the prices of Prescriptions (Epi-pens, Norflex ETC) and any other things that come with healthcare.  I have to go and get an X-ray because having an issue with my arm. So just for one little x-ray I pay $200.00. I have no choice as I’m  right-handed. If my kids weren’t grown I could only imagine the cost of healthcare. Fortunately, my sons are already established in their careers in life & starting their families.  Could anyone imagine what families could do with the extra money. I could start putting away money for my Grandchildren’s college education. Maybe go see my grandchildren more. Many other things!!

I understand that many American families are going through, the same thing if not worst. I feel as if we are being abandoned by our Government that is supposed to be protecting it’s citizens. But alas what do they care, they received free healthcare or laws don’t apply to them. It’s not fair that people not only have to struggle to pay for their own insurance, but pay for others. So my advice to House & Senate instead of trying to piece laws together. For once go after health insurance companies, pharmaceutical  companies make them lower their prices.  The American people are calling out for relief. DO YOUR JOBS  AND IF YOU CAN’T RESIGN OR BE VOTED OUT!!

Kind Regards,

Nicole Eglinger

Also wanted to give you a couple teaser from the next installment of : Popstar Lover Series:  HEART OF HEARTS, Book Three  releasing soon!!

Excerpts:

Feeling overpowering jolts racking through her body knocking her once again against the floor as the voices and her baby crying faded. Josie flashed to another scene of sunset on a beach on her honeymoon in Aruba. Colin and her sitting on a beach blanket as the sun was setting. He ran his hands through her long locks smiling down at her. He reaches out and grabs her face gently, pulling her into an embrace kissing her passionately while pushing her back against the blanket. Falling against her body unbuttoning her blouse one by one pulling it off of her shoulders gently kissing her shoulders along her sensitive neck down a trail between her breasts stopping to suckle on her nipples one by one down across her flat stomach moving southward down across the top of her hairline.

 

After several weeks, Colin had a thought as CJ kept spitting out the bottle, he pulled the curtain closed placing CJ across Jo’s lap long enough to unsnapped the front of her gown exposing her naked breasts. Picking up his son and placing him up to Josie’s breast he reared against his mum’s breast latching on.
Josie could feel her son suckling against her breast slowly rousing her from the twilight to the brightest light she ever saw. Her consciousness started to stir causing a twitch in her hand and her eyelids begins to flutter. Colin looked up at her while holding their son to her breast noticed the fluttering of her eyelids and a twitch of her hands.

“That’s it Jo I know you feel him…and you can hear me…open your eyes!” he demanded.
“Oh god baby come back…don’t leave us!” he cried
He saw her eyes flutter again and her hand twitch hitting the call button for the nurse to make sure he was sure Josie starting react.
“Yes…Mr. O’Connor…how can I help you?” walking into the room.

So I really hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Please check back in a few weeks to find out if you are one of our lucky 4 winners from my Goodreads Giveaway!! Take care of yourselves & Please be kind to each other!!

Kindest Regards,

Heart of Hearts: Popstar Lover Series Book Three

NLEglinger-72dpi-1500x2000 Heart of Hearts Ebook Cover

Hello Lovelies,

Just wanted to drop by and give everyone an update on things. So sorry it has been awhile since I have last blogged. I have been extremely busy with many things since then. I have had a new Grandson born in September 2016. I went up and stayed a little bit with my son to help out and of course enjoying my grandson. I  came back home making appearances @ two Book Fairs.  Then, I got one of those calls “Mom, I need you!”  so mom drops everything to help out. Oh and had extra time with grandson so it was so worth it. Then of course the holidays  shopping and all the festivities that goes along with them. While in between all of these happenings trying get writing done, on my next installment of  Popstar Lover Series. Also in January 2017 my youngest son made it home safely from being on deployment. He was gone for 10 very long month’s he had been deployed on the Turkey /Syrian border. We are so grateful to have him back safe on American soil!!

While I don’t have the exact release dates. I will keep you up to date as it gets closer. Also, I have fantastic news I have been meeting with a  few TV & Movie Executives it appears  that a few entities would like to use  some or all of my books. For possibly a series or movies. I don’t want to give out to many details as it’s not set in stone as of yet. Most of all don’t want to step on any toes and upset anyone. I’m so very flattered by this attention and humbled that my hard work has paid off. Even if nothing happens I will still be happy writing for my lovely fans. I enjoy creating  stories  and different worlds .

Anyhoo, I promise not to stay away to long next time. I just have been really busy with Family and business with my books. I hope you will stick with me and check back regularly to keep updated. Oh, and let’s not forget that in December we will be welcoming our second grandchild. We just found out a week or so ago a few days before my birthday. What a birthday present that was!! Oh, and finally got to have all four of my sons and daughter’s in law and grandson all in the same place together at once. It has been many years since we have been together like that.

Well, the family has been scattered across the US had a son and daughter in law was in San Diego. Another son, daughter in law and grandson in Wisconsin. Another son station in Georgia and another Son & daughter in law and soon grandchild living in north Florida as I live in SOFLO. Anyhoo, two sons have just moved back to Florida. So now we are all at least on the east coast. So yes have been rather busy which is fine with me keeps me busy. I will write to you all very soon and will keep you updated on all my going ons. So take care of yourselves and Be Kind To Each Other. Life is too short!!! Before you know it our time is gone.

Big Love & Hugs,

Nicole Eglinger
