Do you ever struggle with your tongue getting ahead of you? Like when you say something and then wonder if maybe you should have kept those words in your head? That’s the challenge of communication. Sometimes, it’s god to be honest. Other times, maybe  not.

But how do you know the difference?

Main character Kassidy struggles with this in  They All Died Smiling. In this snippet, her childhood friend Russ is really getting under her skin!

No, Kass, you were great. But everyone wants to impress people.”

“No, they don’t.” I dug my nails into my palms. He was still just as ambitious as ever, but not willing to admit it. “You should be glad they like me. It makes you look good by association.” Now that was just plain catty, and I shouldn’t have said it, but I never said I was perfect. Someone rein in my tongue, please.

Someone rein in my tongue, please: Kassidy's thoughts while arguing with Russ in the paranormal urban fantasy novel They All Died Smiling, available everywhere in all formats

I think we’re all going to fail sometimes, no matter which choice we make. What do you think?
