Weekend Roundup

Notice anything new? It’s my redesigned website :-) Imagine my surprise when–after working straight through the weekend without checking email or anything–I logged on and saw the new design, LOLOL! My web designer has been busy!

So…one more week until POSSESSION comes out! And it looks like I’ll get it up by, or at least close to, the 28th of the month.  After endless days of work, I  sent POSSESSION off to the formatter last night.  I’m hoping the book is good :-) At this point I’m way to close to it to know for sure.

Next weekend, Bailey Dog is coming out! Middle son is bringing him out Saturday evening.  I can’t wait to see Bailey or Middle Son. I’m actually going to take some time off (Hush, Wizard, I know you’re shaking your head and saying, “That will never happen.” But I am–really!)

How was your weekend?

    I love the new design of the site! It’s so fresh.

    Wonderful news that you are really going to take some time off. I hope you really do because you deserve it.

    I rally can’t wait to POSSESSION. I normally finish whatever I’m reading before picking up another book but I promise you that as soon as I get it I will put down the current read and dig into to POSSESSION. The sooner we give you feed back the sooner you’ll relax.

    Our weekend was nice. Saturday just the hubs and I went out for dinner. When I made the reservations I asked for our favorite table that’s tucked away in an alcove – kind of romantic. She said she didn’t know and then asked if it was a special night out. I told her it was his B-day. Well we got he table and as soon as we were seated they brought over flutes of Champagne. It was a very nice dinner. Last night the entire family went out to celebrate the two B-days. Again a nice time.

    Have a great day!

    I cannot wait for Possession! Tell Wizard if you want to take a weekend you can, just because you get distracted doesn’t prove anything. If that doesn’t work sic Bailey Dog on him. :) . I went to a friends graduation, and while her class was smaller than mine, it seemed to take longer (maybe it was the sitting there for so long) but oh well. Love the new design. It’s fresh and while I liked the other too, this one is like an evolution of that, almost like how a character will change and mature or evolve in a book, the site does too. it works, really well. I can tell you know when Possession does come out I’ll be buying it ASAP! Ask Middle son to help you prove Wizard wrong and take a break, you really do deserve it, have some fun, and try not to spoil Bailey too much, or Middle son for that matter :wink: .
    Have a great weekend!

    Great new site design, Jen. Very fresh and now, and so you. (I do miss the old design a little, though, but I know you had to do it, so I’m embracing the change.) I’m sure POSSESSION is awesome. I can’t wait to read it. And YAY for Bailey-dog time! =o)

    The weekend here was pretty great. We did the tourist thing most of the day on Friday – went to some restaurant called The Rowdy Beaver down in Eureka Springs, AR, and then drove the countryside. It really is gorgeous here. Then Saturday, I went home decor shopping at the local antiques mall. Yesterday was just for vegging.

    LOVE the new site. It’s very much your “brand” now–encompasses all the things you do. Kudos to your web designer. YAYAYAYAYAY for POSSESSION. I’ll have to go back and reread THE PROPOSITION so I’ll be up to speed when it comes out. *happy dances*

    Other than the stupid tornadoes, we had a good weekend. I submitted a MS to a publisher ;) and started work on my next two projects–a novel and novella set in my Penumbra world while waiting on edits on ROGUE MOON.

    Hooray for Bailey coming. You definitely need PT (Puppy Time)! :-D

    So cool. The site is niffy.

    Possession next week. I am looking forward to it.

    Viki, thank you on the site! My designer did a great job giving me exactly what I asked for. The difficulty in working with me is that I’m not visual at all. So interpreting my requests is a little tricky :-)

    That birthday dinner sounds perfect! I’m so glad the restaurant helped make his birthday AND your night together special. We all need that.

    I hope Possession is good. I made myself go work out this morning to try and get my anxiety under control. But thank you so much for being supportive!

    Amanda, thank you! On the site and on Possession :-)

    Middle son is only staying for the evening, and we’re going to celebrate his b-day. then he’s taking off for vacation and bailey’s hanging with us.

    Graduations are always longer when you’re sitting in the audience! But it’s awesome that you went to acknowledge your friend’s achievement!

    B.E., thanks on the site, and yeah, I know what you mean about the old design. I loved that one so much. But it was time for a change.

    The Rowdy Beaver, LOLOL!!! Great name! That is my smile for the day :-) Sounds like you guys had fun exploring.

    Silver, those tornadoes looked awful! I thought of you last night when I saw it on the news.I’m assuming you’re all safe?

    Congrats on the submission! I’m excited for you!

    Thanks on the site! The brand thing is what I was going for. I’m not sure how my designer managed to decipher my ramblings, but she did it!

    We’re good so far. Those on the south side of the metroplex not so much. It’s really bad. :cry:

    Stay safe Silver. The news reports are just awful. Thinking of everyone in Oklahoma.
