Clearing out the TBR pile. Last night I started (and finished) Gena Showalter’s The Nymph King. Loved it. I’m a big fan of her Atlantis series. Finished Samantha Hunter’s UNTOUCHED, the extreme blaze I got in my last ehq order and got halfway through Poison Study. The night before I made a dent in a couple blazes (The Haunting was one, still iffy on the ending. Might need a reread when I’m not in insomnia mode) Can’t imagine what I’ll be able to finish off tonight if its another up to 5am marathon like the last 2 days have been. If only my muse wouldRead More →

I’m not looking at the total of words I typed in the last week doing a biaw. All I know is I had 26K at the start and I’m at about 44K now. Not all the new words are going to make it to the next draft, but with working chats at divas it really helped the # climb :o)Read More →

of a half decent title. Right now it seems to me this blog entry is going to be more of a ramble – babble type of post. So, the writing seems to have kicked into gear this week. I joined a biaw group on yahoo, they were doing it the week before and I’d been in then and then stress hit and I zoned out. So I thought I’d join up again when they decided to try for a second week. I’m kicking butt so far, I’m almost at 10K for the week :o) I want to hit 40K on Chey’s story tonight/tomorrow if allRead More →

In the good news department I managed 3K on my YA ms yesterday. Picture me happy dancing. :o) I’m not sure all of the 3K is going to end up in the finished ms, but for now its there and its good. I’ve also recast the bad boy in the story. (okay he’s not that bad boy, but he’s been in and out of rehab, he drives fast and at times he’s been a playa…) anyway, originally I had him cast with Logan from Gilmore. But last night I was thinking of who plays Milo and I was thinking Sidney Crosby would make a goodRead More →

So today’s always a roughish day for me. 5 years ago I had to put my beloved 4 year old shih tzu down. Its weird to realize he’s now been gone longer than I had him. :o( Spent some of the morning sitting outside. Its finally nice enough (we had 2 thunderstorms yesterday. One in the afternoon and one at 7 that the thunder shook the house. Always nice lol) Finished reading my arc of Christina Dodd’s SCENT OF DARKNESS. Love that book!! Its a great, dark para that’s out next month. Just started the sequel, TOUCH OF DARKNESS and three chaps in. Writing’s goingRead More →

I’ve been a bad blogger. But its not all my fault. Its been a stressful week at best, and to top it off, we lost power about 3 out of the 5 days this week. Between that and thunderstorms taking me offline, I haven’t been able to get much done. I was supposed to go over and see a friend’s new baby boy Tuesday night but wasn’t able to. So mom and dad went without me and assured me the baby is cuter than the picture that was sent home with them. My writing’s dropped off too. I’m feeling so stressed out with a lotRead More →

When I was out running errands today, looking for Colleen Gleason’s RISES THE NIGHT (which I couldn’t find and I went everywhere. Either its completely sold out or they never had it in the first place) I was lucky enough to pick up some more books for the TBR pile. So at Wal-Mart I got Lois Winston’s LOVE, LIES AND A DOUBLE SHOT OF DECEPTION which wasn’t on my booklist but the back blurb sold me. Then I went to Zellers thinking they’d have Colleen’s book. Nope. But on the shelves of the $4.99 books I found a bunch of Jill Shalvis books (Seeing Red,Read More →

So its been about 25 hours give or take, since the Anaheim Ducks won the Stanley Cup. I think I’m nearing withdrawls lol I didn’t watch all the game last night but its on tape so I can go through the whole thing. I do kinda want to see Chris Phillips scoring on his own goal. Like my dad said last night, for whatever reason the hockey gods were completely against Ottawa. I don’t see the point though in benching players in a game 5, make or break game. Especially being down 2 goals already. Nuff said. But I’m sensing an Ottawa shake up beforeRead More →
