Happy Friday!

Holy Cow! I just realized that today is March 1st.  Time is flying!

Today I’m at Book Lovin’ Mama’s for day four of THE PROPOSITION Blog Tour if you’d like to stop by.

I really, really miss Bailey. So does Wizard. He keeps bugging me to go get him for a few days. But the thing is, without any of the boys here, Bailey will miss them and then I feel bad.

And the REAL problem would be this:

Bailey while I work 2

I can’t work with that cute little face watching me, waiting for me to finish so we can play!

So in good news, I’m not as tired :-) I’ve managed to sleep a bit more and that’s so helpful. Plus I’m getting a handle on my work load ( I think!).

In less than good news the release for THE BABY BARGAIN has been pushed back a week to March 13th.

And in fun news, THE PROPOSITION seems to be doing pretty well for the first week out. Because this is a little different direction for me, it’s going to take time to build. But so far, so good. And thank you to all of you for helping spread the word! Word of mouth is still the most powerful tool we have to getting books into the hands of readers.  I hope you know I appreciate it and never take you all for grated!

And speaking of books, I’ve had our own Silver Jame’s BRIDE’S MOON on my Kindle for a little while now and still am trying to carve out time to read it! I’m frustrated by that, but I will get it read this weekend so I can review it. About all I’ve had time to read is headlines, but that should slow down now.

On Monday i think I’ll be on B.E.’s blog, but I’ll let you guys know for sure that day.

In the mean time, what are you all doing this weekend?

    I love the photo of Bailey looking all cute :). Can see why you and Wizard miss him but understand not wanting to take him away from the boys.

    Glad you’re getting rest. Maybe The Baby Bargain being pushed back is a good thing in a way. Gives you a little more time between books and not so much rushed.

    I had a feeling the Plus Ones were going to do well :). I really can’t wait for the next one.

    We’re taking Daughter in law out to The Melting Pot for her birthday dinner Sat. We’ve never been there and I am not a fan of fondue but we’ll all put on happy faces so that she enjoys herself.
    In a off subject, John and Cassie were saved by PeeWee last Sat. night when a man tried to break into there house. PeeWee woke up at 2 Am and alerted them. Gotta love these small dogs. They are tough ;).

    Have a great weekend.

    Yep. Jen will be on The Unpublished Writers’ Guide to Survival on Monday, March 4th. I just set up the post and it looks great. Come on by and join in the conversation. =oD

    I just finished Bride’s Moon, Jen. It was awesome!

    Bailey’s so awesome. I don’t blame you for missing him. I got to spend time with my sister’s dog while I was in Michigan and I miss him already.

    Yay for The Proposition doing well, and even though The Baby Bargain has been pushed back, I’m sure it won’t effect sales. Might even help to have the releases a little farther apart. My fingers are crossed they both sell a ton.

    Time is flying. I got my daughter out to Michigan – now it’s time for phase two of my year of EMBRACE CHANGE. And that’s probably what my weekend will be comprised of. Right now I’m looking forward to maybe taking a break from the madness in April.

    Must be a weekend for Daughter Birthday Celebrations. I will be taking my daughter and a friend of hers out on sunday for a girl’s day. Not sure what we are doing yet.

    Viki- wow to peewee. Small dogs big hearts.

    Jen I have been trying to stop at some of your blog tour. Some I can get to but others not. I will drop by BE on Monday. I stop by there about once a week to read. I may not always post a comment but I am by there often.

    Ack! Viki! How scary. So glad PeeWee is ferocious. I’m not big on fondue but Melting Pot is a lot of fun and delicious. Be sure to let the waiter/waitress explain things fully and don’t be afraid to ask questions. I’ve only been once (friends took me while I was visiting them) and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. And Happy Birthday to your DiL.

    Awww, B.E.! :oops: So glad you enjoyed BRIDE’S MOON. I can’t wait to get back to work on ROGUE MOON. Now that the website rebuild and migration is finished, I can get back to my *real* work! Glad to have you home, too!

    Happy Birthday to your daughter, Kat! Enjoy your girl’s day out.

    Jen, I think it’s a good thing THE BABY BARGAIN got pushed back. You have a chance to take a breath now. So…BREATHE! :lol: Bailey is so freaking cute in that photo. Maybe the boys will come for a visit and bring him.

    As for my weekend, now that my website redo is done, I’m going to stretch out my birthday (why yes, the coolest people are born on and around the first of March, why do you ask?!? ;) ). I’m treating myself to lunch today, Lawyer Guy is taking me out for dinner, and then tomorrow The Only and I are doing a photo shoot. She’s photographing two covers and doing some new promo shots for me for my website and my books. Sunday, I’ll probably get back to work.

    Happy Friday, witches! The margaritas and birthday cake/cookies are on me!!!

    Viki! Everyone is okay right? Pee Wee doesn’t surprise me at all, those little dogs will guard with their lives. I hope he gets extra hugs and treats. Pee Wee is our official hero today!!

    So funny on The Melting Pot, I just put that in POSSESSION :-) I hope you enjoy it even if it’s not your thing. I was thinking of dragging Biker Witch there for lunch one day but ti’s a LONG ways way just so I can experience ti first hand,b tu I think it’s probably just too rich for me. Let us know what you think of it.

    Happy Birthday to your daughter in law!

    B.E., thank you for having me on Monday! I’ll post a link here.

    I’m so glad your got your daughter settled. Change is always hard to usually worth it. You just need a little rest now after that trip. And I’m happy you’re back!

    I’m really looking forward to BRIDE’S MOON!I have time now!

    THE BABY BARGAIN push back is fine, it’s more of a scheduling headache on my end than anything else. But it’ll work out. The publisher has solid reasons for doing it.
