Good morning all!

It’s been a crazy hectic week for me. Only about 1000 words added to Work in Progress. We are setting up to get another batch of meat chickens, so had to finish cleaning up everything out in the coop, grab some more feed and shavings from the store, and get everything spiffy for the newcomers that will arrive this Thurs.

Took my son bowling Friday, as I mentioned in last week’s post. We did 10 pin, which I’ve rarely ever done. We were dreadful for the first 5 frames at least, in the first game, but improved. Out of 3 games, he kicked my butt twice.

Plus it was my nephew’s fourth birthday so there was a lot of prep for that. Check out this pic of his birthday cake! It turned out fabulous!!

Okay, so what’s ahead?

Book News this week — TODAY — I am doing an hour in Lynn Burke’s Release Party on Facebook. Join me at 11 a.m EST HERE. There will be prizes, excerpts and more!

I am still aiming to finish my current WIP. It’s an older woman/younger man premise and I really love the characters. They are giving me a run for my money with hitting bumps every so often.

AND I’m happy to say that I’ve seen the mock up cover for Fighting for Honor. Cannot wait to share it! It left me breathless!!!! Cover reveal coming soon!!!

My Latest Release: Stirring Up Dirty – Contemporary Erotic Romance. Learn more about that story, HERE. It’s received some great reviews already!

Movie Mention this week – Watched Insurgent over the weekend. Was okay, loved seeing Theo James of course!!, but I found the pace of it was much slower than the 1st movie. And I’m not a fan of Kate Winslet in this role as the bad chick. I felt she played the role one dimensional. The movie was just Meh for me.

Reading Mention this week – I finished up The Collector by Nora Roberts. Very intense book. Loved it!!

Personal fun this week – Chickens arrive this Thursday so it will be nice to have the babies around again. Kiddo and I plan to take at least one day a week and go bowling. He wants to do mini golf but I’m too scared … never done it. He’ll definitely kick my butt again for sure!! I am not super athletic, *snort* so I need something I can at least win. Oh well, it’s fun trying!

And a sweet pic of Peaches, who sends everyone all the best for the week ahead.

Writer Happenings #Musings #Writing #Books


Good morning all! Welcome to August!

tolkeinI’m trying new things on my blog from this point forward. So each day there will be a different ‘feature’, as well as a couple days off a week too. Summer has been wonderful and it has me in the mood to try new and fresh concepts!

Can you believe we are over half way through 2015? Time is flying by like feathers in the sky and there’s no way to slow it down. My kids are growing in leaps and bounds. My oldest is headed for year two of nursing school. Son #1 is heading into grade 11 & Son #2 is into grade 8. I’m not sure how to handle all this getting older … them not me, of course! LOL

Okay, so what’s ahead?

Book News this week — I am aiming to finish my current WIP. It’s an older woman/younger man premise and I really love the characters. Leah & Justice are dynamite together. Their history gave me a lot to build on, plus they have chemistry abound!!   This one has taken a bit longer than I thought it would. I struggle with usually the first 3-4 chapters of a story. Getting the build-up right, not rushing, not including too much backstory. I’m really excited about the story, the inspiration behind it. And when I write “The end” I’ll be even more excited. *g*

I received word from Evernight Publishing that my next release will be on August 26th!!! Fighting for Honor is my first SHIFTER story. Cats specifically – a panther & a Siberian tiger. It was a lot of fun writing this story, and probably the quickest one I’ve written in a very long time! The story simply poured out of me and I can’t wait to hear back from readers about it. I also hope to have a cover soon. Once I do, you know I’ll share!

My Latest Release: Stirring Up Dirty – Contemporary Erotic Romance. Learn more about that story, HERE. It’s received some great reviews already!

Movie Mention this week – Armageddon! Watched it over the weekend and love it every time I watch. Some far-fetched moments but how can I not love to watch a movie with Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck in it, and looking mighty fine in their younger years. *g* Plus music by Aerosmith – enough said!!

Reading Mention this week – I read a story for critique purposes, and it was wonderful!! It’s not in its complete stages as yet, but once the book does go live, I’ll post about it on my site!

Personal fun this week – I plan to spend Friday with Son #2. We’re doing lunch, shopping at his fave gaming store, and going bowling. It’s been years since I’ve bowled, but I’m sure it’s like riding a bike, right? I hope! I’ll tell you about it on my next “writer happenings” post!!

 

That’s all for now! See you next week.

Happy Reading!
