Happy Friday

Do you know the month of March is half over? I looked at a calendar today and choked on my coffee.

I’ve been swimming around in this set of scenes with Kat and Sloane for-freaking-ever and I finally figured out the problem.

It’s all Sloane’s fault.

I think of POSSESSION as more Sloan’es book, and every time I probe around in his emotions and back-story a little bit, he shuts down. The next thing I know, I’m online doing promo work instead of pushing through the scenes.

Sloane is sneaky like that. Or, and this is more likely the truth, Sloane’s issues are a little too close to home for me.  But since I don’t want to take responsibility I’m going to blame Sloane.

But look what I found online:

Tough Guy

This could be the elusive, never before seen, Cooper from THE BABY BARGAIN (except Cooper has scars).  Poor Cooper gets his story last though, if things go the way I think they will.

Not that I’ve been procrastinating or anything.

My weekend plans are mostly to clean the stupid bathrooms. So what are your plans this weekend?

P. S.  Bonnie Vanak (award winning author of TAKEN BY AN ALPHA WOLF, which is on my Kindle waiting to be read!) is doing a little feature on THE PROPOSITION tomorrow if you want to stop by here .



By the way, I’ve got a little guest spot on

    Sloane is very sneaky ;).

    I’m loving the Baby Bargain.

    Sat. I think I’m going to the mall. Need to pickup some Godiva eggs for Easter ;).

    I hope you have a great weekend and get those bathrooms clean – I did mine yesterday.

    Oh, those recalcitrant characters. You’ll whip Sloane into shape.

    Don’t even get me thinking about how March is half over. I have too much to do before the end of the month and only 16 days left to do it in. :panics a little: Ugh, and I have to clean bathrooms, too.

    I’ll be busting butt this weekend. And hopefully sneak in some writing time, too. I actually wrote a couple pages last night. It wasn’t much, but it’s something.

    Dang. Sloane and Rudy need to go have a boys’ night out or something. I’m ready to take a 2×4 to the Wolf. :P

    Okay, that guy doesn’t look like how I pictured Cooper at all. :lol: Isn’t amazing how readers get different ideas?

    I have chapter meeting tomorrow. I’m presenting the early Romance 101 class, on world building. Then lunch. Our afternoon program is a creative writing professor presenting on Edgar Allen Poe. I’m looking forward to it. Sunday, I have to clean house and do a heap load of laundry to get the guest room ready again.

    Have a great weekend, witches!

    Viki, thank you! The Baby Bargain has surprised me. I really had no idea what to expect with this book :-)

    Have fun shopping for Godiva Easter eggs!

    B.E., a couple pages is great! Especially with all you have going on. You get a gold star!

    I can’t believe how fast time is going. It’s crazy.

    Cleaning bathrooms is not my idea of fun for a weekend for either one of us.

    Silver, do you think you can catch the wolf? They run pretty fast.

    I was just noodling around with pics. Not sure that’s it yet. Plus I’m was pushed for time yesterday to get a blog up :-) Stupid internet is acting up again. No idea why.

    Good luck presenting at your chapter meeting! You’ll do great!

    Bad Sloane! You’ll whip him into shape, Jen. I have faith that you’re more stubborn than he is :D

    I plan to go shopping for new work clothes with my mom tomorrow. We’ll probably stop and have lunch somewhere. Sunday, I’m going to a hockey game w/ a friend. Plus I have some laundry to get done this weekend.

    I also have to share my news! My boss told me yesterday that she’s giving me $1 raise starting next week, instead of the 50 cents after 90 days she told me about in the interview. She said I’m doing really well and she wants me to stay. How’s that for good news?!

    Have a great weekend, witches!!
