Happy Friday!

It’s Friday? How did that happen?

Okay so…Monday is the release of HER TEMPORARY HERO! I’m excited but somehow, I’ve forgotten all the work and anxiety involved in the release of a book.  Carla (my assistant) and I’ve been working on promo, including a FB Party next Wednesday (the 16th) and other stuff.  But both have Verizon and are having the same internet issues even though we’re on opposite coasts. Sending files and pictures that we’re working on back and forth is a time-consuming challenge  when our internet connection keeps dropping .

This weekend I want to go to my RWA Meeting, but I just don’t know if I can get away.

Now a random aside: Wizard was reading the paper and out of the blue said,  “Someone’s birthday is coming up.”

I ignored him because I don’t care.  By summertime, I’m birthday-ed out.

“Do you want a blender?”

“What?” I stopped reading. “Why would I want a blender? I have a blender.”

He laughed. “I have your attention now.”

Every year Wizard gripes because I don’t know what I want. So this year I decided to surprise him. “Fine. I want a French bulldog and I want to name him Frankie Frenchmiester Apodaca.”

Wizard stared. “That’s a stupid name and we’re not getting a dog.”

“No its not a stupid. I’m a writer and I would know.” I grinned at him. “This year I know what I want, am I getting my French bulldog?”

He tilted his head, and I can see the wicked filling his eyes. “I don’t know, have you been good?”

“Yes.” (What? Sometimes I’m good.)

“Reaalllyyyy?” Wizard asks, dragging  it out. “Is your book done, Witch?”

I shut my kindle and stomped off to the computer. I don’t know I talk to him. Seriously. He’s so annoying.  And Franking Fenchmiester Apodaca is an awesome name.

So what are your plans for the weekend?

My air conditioner is fixed! Man it was brutal without air in the 100 plus degree weather. It turned out to be an easy fix and I’m so grateful!

I’m still working away on the book and gearing up for the release of HER TEMPORARY HERO. And dealing with the same old internet troubles. I don’t know what’s up with Verizon. Once I turn in this book I need to look into other options.

Here’s our candidate for Wednesday Worthy:

Weekend Roundup

I missed posting on Friday, sorry! So how was everyone’s 4th of July? Ours was good until our air conditioner died. It’s a 100+ degrees here and rather unpleasant (understatement!). Naturally the place we use for air and heating repairs was closed over the weekend so I’m calling them today. I’m leery of randomly calling places–I did that about 10 years ago and had a really REALLY bad experience. Hopefully the air will be fixed soon.

To escape the heat, Wizard and I went to the movies and saw THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. We really liked it. I knew it’d be emotional, and it was, but I liked it a lot.  I’m really fortunate that Wizard likes these kinds of movies, a lot of men don’t.

I just saw the first review for HER TEMPORARY HERO.  I’m so relieved that the reviewer liked it :-) I just can’t ever tell if a book will resonate with readers or not.  The full review is here if you’d like to see it.

How was your weekend?
