Kathryn Bain - One Last Breath

Good Monday Morning Readers!

Today, Kathyrn Bain visits Lagniappe.
Her post gives great tips on things to do for Valentine's Day if you're single.

Welcome, Kathy!


Romantic movies on every station. Boxes of chocolates and heart candies in every store you enter. If you’re single, around every corner, there’s something announcing you’re alone on Valentine’s Day.
As much as we might hate it, sometimes we are meant to be alone. Being single can give you time to become better acquainted with God. According to 1 Corintians 7:34, “…but the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband”. When married, you find yourself dividing your time between God and your family obligations. Whereas, single people have spare time to devote to Jesus.
I know the last thing you want to be is alone on Valentine’s Day when all your friends are coupled. There are several things you can do to get through the holiday.
1.     Form a Bible Study for that evening. Focus on God’s love. There is nothing more powerful or precious.
2.     Join the single people who celebrate International Quirkyalone Day held February 14. First celebrated in 2003 with parties in San Francisco, California, New York, Providence, Rhode Island, and Glasgow, Scotland, this holiday was created to celebrate what is extraordinary about you.
3.     Get a bunch of friends together to watch a good movie. “God’s Not Dead,” “Mom’s Night Out,” and “Courageous” are great movies without all the romance.
There’s no end to what you can come up with. All it takes is a little imagination. And once you start sending out the invitations, you’ll discover you have a lot more single friends than you think.
So rejoice in being single. Enjoy being able to make any decision you want without checking with another. And most importantly, be happy you get total control over the remote.

Kathryn's latest release: One Last Breath

BJ Owens can’t calm the anger she still feels toward Ransom. After all, he used her years before to prove a friend was trading secrets to the enemy. But when a child trafficker goes after a family member, she must accept Ransom’s help to keep the girl safe. 

Ronald “Ransom” McNeely is after a demon – the man responsible for the murder of his sixteen year-old granddaughter. When he discovers the next possible victim will be a relative of BJ Owens, a woman he’s never stopped loving, he pulls out all the stops to keep the girl safe. But when the devil hides in plain sight, BJ could be a distraction that costs someone their life. 

Award winning author Kathryn J. Bain, finally stepped out into the self-publishing realm with a short fiction piece, The Visitor, in 2014. Quite a feat for someone who considers herself technologically challenged.
The release of her latest mystery, One Last Breath, brings her number of released books to seven.
She has garnered several awards, including Second and Third Place in the Heart of Excellence Readers’ Choice Award and First Place in the Royal Palm Literary Award for Inspirational Fiction.
She was the President of Florida Sisters in Crime from 2010-2012 and is currently the Public Relations Director for Ancient City Romance Authors. Kathryn has also been a paralegal for over twenty years and works for an attorney who specializes in elder law.
Kathryn grew up in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. In 1981, she moved to Boise, but it apparently wasn't far enough south, because two years later she headed to Jacksonville, Florida and has lived in the sunshine ever since.

Kathyrn, thanks for sharing such great ideas for Valentine's Day!

Readers, thanks for visiting Lagniappe.

I pray you find 
"a little something extra" 
in each of your days.
