Lots of News!

I missed the boat big time. I didn’t realize yesterday was the beginning of July. The DH and I vegged out catching up on the last 5 episodes of Game of Thrones. Damn show isn’t coming back until Spring 2012. Frustrating! LOL

Bittersweet Weekend

This weekend I said goodbye to the board I ran with for the last two years. While we had a good run it’s now over. In some ways I was looking forward to not being responsible for the newsletter. I needed a break and happy to turn it over to the new editor. Yet, part of me will miss it. When I didn’t come home with all my folders I felt like I lost a part of myself. It’ll be all right in the end. I’m going to be too busy come August to think about putting together the newsletter. I’m sure the new editor will do a fantastic job.
Our house if finally back to normal. It took some serious time, but the DH worked hard over the weekend.
I spent over 7 hours in the car…something I don’t like to do. It did give me time to reflex on certain things and make some decisions that have lingered for too long. That's for another post though.
I also challenged myself. I told my editor that I’d have a book for her by the end of this week. ACK! You know what that means right? I have to sit my butt in the chair and write those last 5-6k words and ship that baby off. I knew if I didn’t do something drastic I’d let it sit while I do nothing. I need to finish this wip.
So if you don’t hear from before Friday, you’ll know why.
Happy Monday!

Off for the weekend!

Off to Salem MA this weekend, along with 250 other family members and the timing couldn’t be better. Last night the DH, my youngest and I were at Best Buy looking at netbooks (my b-day is this weekend and DH needed ideas.) :0) Anyway, so all of a sudden my left wrist started hurting like crazy. I did have pain in it earlier in the day, but nothing that made me stop or wince.
I felt around where the pain was and noticed a small lump…so because we’re going away the DH thought it was a good idea to have it checked out. Off to the walk-in clinic. 30 mins later they decided it was bruised. Now mind you she didn’t want to do an x-ray, probably because they were in a hurry to go home. She bandaged it and said if I have any issues over the next three days come back for an x-ray. Yeah, I’m not feeling the love from that clinic. I’ll go see another doctor. I’d go see mine, but he decided to move out of state, so I don’t have one at the moment.
She told me limited use for at least three days. Shhh, don’t tell her I’m typing this. lol The wrist still hurts like a SOB.
Nano isn’t going as good as I’d hoped but I plan to resume intense writing next week. I’d like to sneak some in over the weekend, but 5 of us are sharing a two bedroom suite. I don’t think they’ll appreciate me getting up at 4am to make coffee and type away. Hopefully the time away will replenish my creative well as it seems to have run dry at the moment.
If you’re not a newsletter subscriber I’m running two contests this month. One ends Nov 7th at midnight est, the other runs all month long. Great prizes. You can sign up on the left to find out how to win.
Happy Friday and have a Fun-filled weekend!

Newsletter and Stuff

My newsletter will be late this month. Likely on the 5th or 6th, due to vacationing. I should have planned this earlier but...I didn't. Sorry.

The brighter side of this is you have longer to enter the contest for a chance to win. Don't know what I'm talking about? Join my newsletter over to the left to find out.

I have a secret. Don't you just hate when you're bursting at the seams to blab about something and can't? That's how I feel right now. Hopefully in a few days.

Went to the Red Sox game last night. They lost. We still managed to have a good time.

That's it for today. Time to pack and hit the road. Hershey Park here we come!!!!!!

So Much To Do!

I’ve been busy. I finished editing book three of the Freedom Fantasies series and sent it off to my editor. I had to get my chapter’s newsletter out and work, well, it drove me nuts.
This weekend the DH and I cleaned the sunroom from top to bottom, planted flowers got all the deck furniture out and cleaned off. What he doesn’t realize is he’s helping me prepare for his big birthday surprise party! LOL I’m evil.
Speaking of which, I’m I the process of planning TWO surprise parties. My mom has a milestone birthday THREE days before the DH’s. It’s getting confusing and hard to keep a secret. I’m an only child so there aren’t any brother’s or sister’s to help with the planning.
I meet with the cake lady this week. I’m getting him one of the real fancy specialty cakes. Something to do with the Red Sox. No worries he doesn’t read my blog.
I also started self-edits on a full length romantic comedy today. I finished Chapter one. I had to switch from 1st to 3rd person. I didn’t like the 1st person.
Today I’m getting back to my cougar story. I feel like I’m finally free to explore this more. Fellow cougar Dalton Diaz gave me a few suggestions after reading my synopsis and I want to go back and incorporate her idea.
In other news – I received a contract for Freedom Fantasies, Book Two – Spend The Night With Me. This is Brooke and Liam’s story. Let’s just say they have fun with a stripper pole and a swing!
Come back tomorrow when I have an interview with my good, good friend Katalina Leon!

Monday Again

The beginning of a new week. The DH and I went out for dinner and drinks with my brother in law and his wife this weekend. It was nice to be out of the house. I needed a night out more than I realized.

I have another busy week ahead of me. I’m editing a romantic comedy I want to submit to a contest, along with getting it ready for an agent appointment in March. Also on my lists of to-do’s this week is editing the Shea Manor series. I haven’t finished writing book two, but one and three are done.

I’m also hard at work on a new wip that needs to be finished and submitted by Jan 31st. It’s for a themed series so there is a deadline. The idea came to me last week and I had to put aside Brooke and Liam’s story for Shea Manor to work on this. Once I’m done I’ll return to the other story.

I’ve been planning out my week on Sunday’s, it seems having a schedule makes me more productive. I'm the queen of procrastination so this way I feel accountable for getting the work done. On top of my writing schedule I have little tasks around the house I want to tackle. Things I couldn't do if I were working the day job.

Our daughter just strolled in from a four day trip to Washington DC with the father in law. She went straight to bed after being on a train for seven hours. I'm looking forward to her waking up to hear all the details. My FIL surprised them with a trip to the White House, along with a tour of the Oval Office. He didn't think he'd be able to pull it off, but he did. She missed a few days of school for this trip, but hey, it was educational right? :)

Just waiting for the final approval on my new cover for Wild Lickins so I can share. I’m really digging this cover.

Eight more days until the release of Ignited, my newest ménage from Ellora’s Cave Exotika line.

Well time to get busy on my chapter’s newsletter and do some editing. Until tomorrow…

Getting Started on Christmas

Today I'm wrapping gifts. I bought a ton of stuff for the grand baby T and I'm wrapping her stuff. Once the toy box arrives I'll fill it with the gifts to put under the tree - that I haven't put up yet! I'm hoping this weekend, but I have my local chapter's meeting and my MIL's b-day party.
The DH has to go into the office, so that will give me time to wrap a few things I've picked up for him too.
I need to get the DH to bring the decorations down from the attic so I can find those darn Christmas cards I bought last year. Time to get going on them too. December is always filled with so much to do.
I have the music cranked, ready to go. Maybe I'll grab a cup of coffee and rock out. Oh and I have tons of editing to do thanks to Nano. While I didn't reach the 50k mark I did manage 42,090.

If you haven't signed up for my newsletter, I'm giving away 3 ebooks and a gift card this month. But you have to be a member to win! Why not sign up today.

Start of a new week


Had a bit of a scare this morning, just before I left for my monthly check-up. Told the DH he might want to come to the visit, just in case. Doctor said things look fine. They did a quick ultrasound and I just have to slow down. If I slow down anymore I might as well be on bed rest. So the scare is behind us.

Today I announced the first monthly contest on my newsletter loop. The contest is for member's only so if you want to join in on the fun subscribe to your right.

Still don't have a release date for Heat Waves. I thought it was coming this month, but something tells me, its not.

Received my ten Chicken Soup for the Soul(All in the Family) books in the mail today. That was a pleasant surprise. I had forgotten it was releasing tomorrow. Now if only the check would arrive too! THAT would be a bigger surprise. :)

Yesterday I drove in sleet, rain, snow, you name it, while in MA. Today it's sunny and 60 degrees. I can't win. I'll take this weather any day. I'm not looking forward to the snow.

Ghost Hunters and Life Changes

I was so excited about the review from Manic Reader's yesterday I forgot to mention the return of Ghost Hunters last night. They came back with a bang. I like GHI, but Jason and Grant are my all time favorites. Last nights episode Jason was scratched. He had five marks on his legs. Not that I want to see them hurt, but this is the stuff I WANT to see. That's what they're there to do isn't it? SHOW us that ghosts and other paranormal entities exist? They didn't let me down. I hope the rest of the season only gets better.

On the writing front I've got the editing for His Submissive just about complete to submit to Noble Romance. My next submission Research Required is a few scenes away from being done too. Not sure who I'll submit this one to. I've had some thoughts. I'm really considering Loose, Id or Resplendence Publishing. I'll keep you posted. Or I might keep it in house with one of my current publishers. It's a lot to think about.


Off to work on my local chapters newsletter. I volunteered to be the editor for the next two years. When I volunteered I hadn't expected some of the life changes I've been facing. (That's a post for another day!) Oh well, can't turn my back on it now, but this might turn into a one year run instead of two. I'll know more in the weeks to come HOW much my life will be changing! lol
Oh, and I before I forget to mention I'm blogging on Tuesday's at Six Sexy Scribes. I'm excited to be blogging with five wonderful and talented authors. So, drop by sometime! http://sixsexyscribes.blogspot.com/
