Weekend Roundup

Just a reminder that the OBSESSION Blog Tour is still going on. The grand prize is a $50.00 e-gift card and there are two runner-up prizes of $25.00 e-gift cards.  Go to my home page for the schedule of blog stops where you can enter.

I’m a tad less stressed now as my awesome editor for Entangled gave me until Dec. 1st to turn in THE COWBOY MARINE. Of course, in exchange I may have agreed to write another book. I’m not sure how that happened, but frankly, I’d have given her anything short of Bailey Dog for the extra time, LOL! I don’t have many details on the new book I agreed to, but I’ll share more when I do. And frankly, I jumped on the chance as soon as she asked me :-)

Overall, Wizard and I had a good weekend. We went to see the movie GRAVITY. Sigh…I didn’t love it as much as I wanted to, and neither did Wizard. But others obviously do love it since it’s kicking butt at the box office.  Everyone has different tastes.

I finished writing all my blogs and interviews for the blog tour, so now I can full concentrate on the COWBOY MARINE! And I need to keep rehabbing my leg at the gym.  I really REALLY need to get back to my full workout routine.  All that sitting and eating shows.

So how was your weekend?

    Yay! More books from you. Now that’s a good thing ;).

    I had a feeling about Gravity sounds like it was dead on. You’re the fith person I know that really didn’t like it as much as they had thought they would.

    I spent my weekend moaning about my lack of computer and having to borrow the hubs iPad. Because it’s a property of work I can only do certain things with it and am not allowed on a ton of sites.

    Computer repair man arrives tomorrow. Thank heaven!

    On a great note I spent a good amount of time playing with Spunk. He is one sweet kitten.

    Have a great day :)!

    Yay for the extended deadline even if it means you have another book to write (which is good for me). ;o) I haven’t really had an urge to watch Gravity. I like Sandra Bullock, but I’m not a fan of Clooney, so the whole thing is like meh.

    I did more yardwork and housework over the weekend (yeah, it seems like I’m always working around here, but there’s a lot to do and if I was as hard a worker as I seemed all this would’ve been done months ago. LOL) I also read a lot and watched football – so a typical weekend here.

    Viki, no computer is awful! Hope the guy shows up and fixes it with no problems. I really really hate those trolls!

    Awww on your kitty! Spunk sounds like he’s stolen your heart.

    I really wanted to love GRAVITY. Sadly I was bored half way through.

    B.E., you’re smarter than me. I guess I got sucked in and wanted to see Sandra Bullock do something ground breaking.

    It does seem like you work on the house and yard all the time! I always feel guilty reading your comments :-) Glad you had some downtime too!

    Any time someone can twist your arm to write a new book is a win in my opinion! ;)

    I’m “suffering” from trip hangover, plus, it’s Monday. :P

    Oh, that’s only because I never say ‘I spent the weekend laying around except for that couple hours I raked leaves and washed windows’. Trust me, you work way harder than I do. ;o)

    Silver, hope you got all caught up today. Mondays are bad enough, but also just getting home from a trip makes it even worse. But you had a great trip, right?

    Are you going to RT in NOLA? I just booked it.

    B.E., raking leaves and washing windows is better than me. I worked on blogs, interview, business but I need to write pages. Badly!

    It’s okay to relax, you know! I’m going to do it someday, Seriously. I’m grateful for the work this year, but relaxation is important too.
