Before I forget, today’s blog tour stop is Ramblings From This Chick
I’m exhausted beyond words and Wizard is not happy about it. But I’m thrilled that THE PROPOSITION is out and that THE BABY BARGAIN (written as Jennifer Apodaca) should be out on Monday March 4th. I truly didn’t mean to have two releases 6 days apart, but sometimes there are scheduling shifts that are beyond our control
But lets talk about something else. BLB (my son aka Broken Leg Boy) called me on Monday. First, he was so excited about THE PROPOSITION being out. That made me so happy. I doubt he will read it, but he has seen first hand all the work that goes into a book from creation to publication and respects that. But he called to talk about his leg, and this is how he led into the it. “He mom I saw the doctor today, and I knew you’d understand this…”
And I thought, man that is awesome. He knows I understand what he’s dealing with. Frankly, it would be easy for him to lash out at me, but he doesn’t. He knows I live in chronic pain (at times, now always) and truly understand it. He rarely ever complains, but instead, deals with it like a man and I’m just so proud of him. The phone call was basically discussing his options, but he had it pretty well worked out. I agreed with his decisions.
I really wanted to share that with you because you all went through so much of BLBs recovery. He’s moving on with his life, getting very excited about his new degree after the accident destroyed his chances for the career he’d been working so hard for.
I’ll stop now Let’s move on to our hunk today!
Do you find him worthy?

Oh Jenn – I agree with Wizard. You need to rest. Try not to push yourself too much this week.
Thanks for sharing BLB’s phone call. You must be so proud of him and rightly so. He has handle it all with intelligence and grace.
I’m not too sure about this guy. The red “undies” don’t do it for me and he doesn’t quite have the look.
Congratulations on THE PROPOSITION! I loved it :).
Have a great day!

Yay on The Proposition being out! I bought it for my Nook
I’m glad BLB is doing okay. I hope he ends up loving the new career choice.
The candidate can follow me home any time!! YUM
I started my new job Monday. So far, so good. I like it waaayyyy better than handling freight.
Gotta run so I’m not late! Happy Hump Day, witches!

You know…he might consider going into forensics, especially with the degree. There’s more to the field than crime scene stuff. Just a thought… I know how proud you, Wiz, and the bros are of him. He’s a special young man!
Jen? GET SOME REST! I know you are crazy busy with both launches but getting sick in the middle of things is a Very Bad Thing(tm). Don’t make me send the flying monkeys to tied you to the bed to rest…
And Jen? DANG, WOMAN! You kept me up WAAAAAY past my bedtime and then ended THE PROPOSITION at a spot that kept me up even later chewing over the ending! The ending that is a beginning of a whole new chapter!!! I just want to say, Sloane can give the Wing Slayers a run. Wow. And Kat is…she’s perfect. Needless to say, LOVED the story.

OH! There was a hunk today. D’uh. Uhm…He’s okay. But he doesn’t hold a candle to Sloane or the Wing Slayers. Maybe he could be Sloane’s driver?

Viki, thank you so much for your review! I saw it on Amazon, I think. I appreciate that!
I’m doing fine, just tired. I’m on my third complete manuscript turn around to Entangled in a week. I don’t think this is normal for them, though. Things got compressed there due to some big changes.
And thank you on THE PROPOSITION!

Awesome on your new job, Dawn! I’m really happy for you!
Thank you for buying the book! Now don’t be late, LOL

Oh Silver, thank you so much! I just saw your review on Amazon too. I wish I could convey how much that means to me. I’m grateful!
But I’m sorry for keeping you up last night.
I’ll be fine. I have to be, it’s just the way it is right now. My insomnia is a bit better so that helps.
Sure, he could be Sloane’s driver!

WOW! I haven’t been here in a while. Sheesh. Really need to come here more often, but like you said, some things are out of our control. A couple days ago I had to bring my mother to the ER because she fell down our concrete stairs and bashed herself up really bad. It’s not bad enough that she already has a bad leg, but gravity is trying to take her out completely now. She keeps cursing herself even though it isn’t her fault, so we’ll see what goes on with her doctor’s appointment which will, hopefully, be soon. Apparentally, they’re booked and we need to wait for a cancelation.

Stephanie, I’m so sorry! You’re poor mom. I hope you can get her into the doctor’s soon.
Take care of yourself and your mom!

The Proposition came out while I was away?! Crap. I’ll add that to my to-do list for the day. (Buying it, not reading it – because I’m on another book and I’ve got a lot to do otherwise.)
I’m so happy BLB is moving on. Life throws a lot of curve balls at us and sometimes you just have to move out of the way or get beaned.
Not sure about the hunk. He’s not doing it for me today, but that could just be me.
