Release Day!

You guys are so incredibly awesome, I just want to say a big THANK YOU! The last year has been wild. Seriously. Huge ups and downs.  And through it all, you guys have kept me smiling. Whatever happens with SOUL MAGIC now, at least I’m hanging out with friends :-)

How I want to share a picture that made me happy dance! Wild Witchlady from Facebook, known as Wildwitchca on Twitter, a bookseller in Canada sent me this pic of Soul Magic as her Staff Pick

Soul  Magic Staff Pick

You can see her review of the book here

Don’t you think that’s worth blowing off work and having appletinis all day? (If my editors read this, I’m just kidding! Really!)

One More Day!

Soul Magic is out tomorrow!

Over the weekend, a bookseller (wildwitchca) read SOUL MAGIC and commented on TWITTER.  She loved it, but it was quite an experience for me, checking Twitter to  see what she thought as she progressed through the story.  At one point, she said she only had about 90 pages to go when I signed off in the evening.

Did I actually get up in the middle of the night to check and see if she finished?

Almost. I woke up and thought about it, but then I knew that if I did it, I’d never sleep.  If she hated it, I ‘d be crushed. If she loved it, I’d be excited. If there was no comment,  my imagination would go into overdrive!

I waited until morning and was thrilled that she loved it and said she was going to make SOUL MAGIC a Staff Pick in her store.  So cool! I’m Appletini-Happy!

I believe my guest blog is will go up at RR&H Novel Thoughts today if you’d like to hop over. I scheduled these a while ago,  so I’m gong by my calendar.

Still VERY slow in reading–one book this week. SILVER FALLS by Anne Stuart.  I have to say, I found the actions of the heroine uneven and often baffling, BUT the plot caught me. I love the good brother/bad brother dynamics. All in all, it was an interesting read.

Your turn! How was your weekend?

Sutton or Axel?

Just for fun, I’ve posted random lines of dialogue from a random scene of BLOOD MAGIC.  For fun, take a shot at telling who said each line, Axel or Sutton? They are mixed up.

1) “Can you have sex with her and not kill her?”

2) “She won’t know how to remove the curse, I’m so screwed.”

3) “Yes, but she’s in me now.”

4) “We know that sex with more women helps us control the compulsion. Find out if same goes with a witch.”

5) “Is she still alive?”

6) “Felt it. She’s a witch. But does she know she’s a witch.”

I’ll post the answer on Thursday (assuming I remember!)

Monday Roundup

We had a really good weekend!

Saturday we went to a car show and lunch with our oldest son and his girl friend. Although The Wizard did fall ill with a rather series case of Car Fever.  Again.  I believe the specific strain of this particular fever is labeled “Lexus ISF. ” The cure is very expensive so he’ll just have to sweat it out.

Sunday, we went to see Couple’s Retreat. If you’re married, GO! We cracked up.  The yoga scene did the Wizard in–I laughed at him as hard as I was laughing at the movie.

I started reading another book, read about a hundred pages and stopped. Life is too short to be that bored.  Disgusted, I picked up Alyson Noel’s. BLUE MOON. It’s a YA series about immortals and I really enjoyed the first one.  I was hesitating reading the second one, not sure I was in the mood for YA.  As it turns out, it was just what I needed! I read the books straight through and only have one complaint– it ended too soon and I have to wait for the next book SHADOWLAND to find out what happens.

So how was your weekend?

My troll story for the week…

Trolls don't feedEvery couple months we get this yellow bag in the mail with a pick-up date. It’s for charity. We  put the items we no longer want in the bag, and set it in front. The truck comes by, picks it up and leaves us a receipt. It’s worked great for years.

On Monday the Wizard was home.  We both decided to give away the “good” stuff that we’d been saving. Okay, fine, for me I’m talking about expensive skirts and blouses that will never fit me again.

Ever.  And must you rub in it?

Sorry personal moment there :-)

So we fill the bag with some nice clothes.  The wizard takes it out and puts it on the driveway. Not the curb, not the street, but our driveway. We both go about our days. A couple hours later, the wizard hears a car door and goes to the front window.

Two people in a car stopped, grabbed the bag and threw it in the car then raced off. NOT THE  CLEARLY MARKED CHARITY TRUCK.

That’s right, these two drove around and stole the stuff off every one’s driveway.  I’m guessing they wanted to have a TROLL garage sale.

That’s my troll story this week. What’s yours?
