Wednesday Worthy

We’ve survived one week of Wizard’s retirement! That’s a good sign, yes? Of course it helps that Wizard now has a new best friend.

Wizards's Transformer

This is an Asus Transformer-it’s both a small laptop and a tablet. The three boys and their girls got it for Wizard as a retirement gift.  He spent several days learning and setting it up. He’s in love! This little beauty is doing double duty–keeping him entertained AND off my desktop. Wizard had a tendency to wait for me to get up and go do something like laundry, then I come back and he’s at my desk. That makes me insane and I end up pacing and sighing waiting for him to get off my computer. But now he has A.T. keeping him totally entertained!

On my end of things, I’m back to revising Exposing the Heiress. I’ll get it done this week I hope. It’s pretty funny actually, my editor loved the book, but there’s been some debate about which line it will fit in. This is the story of my writing career, LOL! But it’s all fine now, I think.

I could’t find a new Wing Slayer Worthy Candidate tonight so I brought back an oldie:

Young man and panther

I think the panther is totally worthy! What do you think?

Weekend Roundup!

Friday took one of this weird turns that left me yelling out, “PLOT TWIST!”   What this means is that my editor asked me to stopped revising Exposing The Heiress until we get a gltich sorted out, probably today or tomorrow, I hope. Everything will be fine, it’s just, well, one of those unexpected plot twists :-) When I have a clearer picture, then I’ll tell you all more.

See how fun my job is? Sometimes I’m so confused, LOL!

The weekend was really nice. Biker Witch and I had a great time the mall, including a lot of chocolate cake to celebrate her birthday.

Wizard is so happy to be retired, but I think we’re both trying to actually get our heads around the fact that he really is retired now.  I’d say where in the honeymoon faze right now, not really getting on each other’s nerves. In a couple weeks, I think we’ll be in the You’re Breathing My Air stage :-)

Okay I have the final cover for CAGED MAGIC but I can’t show it. Blame Carla (my assistant). She’s cooking up some cover reveal for either the holidays or New Years or something. I showed her the cover, then got this insanely excited email back rattling off all these ideas…and I’m like. “Carla, switch to decaf, dude!”

She laughed, and said she was wired. No kidding!! But I love her enthusiasm. She’s a huge WSH fan, so I’m not complaining. But no way am I reading that email again–promo always scares me. I just get out of her way and let her do her thing, then she bullies me into doing whatever it is I need to to. It’s a crazy process but it works for us. The point of this is, it’s totally Carla’s fault we’ve got the cover on lockdown, LOL!

And while I’m waiting for Exposing her Heiress to get sorted out, I’m going back to work on the Wing Slayers.

So how was your weekend?

Happy Friday!

This is a quick post to wish you all a happy Friday and a good weekend! I’m deep in revisions but I’m taking a break on Sunday to go hang out with Biker Witch (my sister). What are your plans for the weekend?

The FB Party last night was fun but FB was being strange,  and even the guests were having issues. It was still fun, and man I was wiped out after that! Carla is holding the contests open for another twenty four hours so if you want to go enter into any of the contests, link here .  Once again, I am so touched by all the support. I even had a private message by a well-known author telling me how much she loved the Plus One Chronicles. As wonderful as that is, it’s the fans that are out there so tirelessly spreading the work that truly take my breath away and make me incredibly grateful.

In other news…Today is the first day of Wizard’s retirement. Since I’m actually writing this blog last night (hmm…that doesn’t sound right!), I’m not sure how it’s going yet.  But we are both ready for this. Stay tuned, I’m sure there will be some stories, LOL!

But for now, since OUTLANDER is so popular and I’m totally missing out because I don’t have Starz or whatever that show is on (although I read the books), I chose this picture for our Wednesday Worthy Candidate:

handsome highlander

What do you think? Is he worthy?
