Happy Friday!

nurbeidir-189x300 Book One Cover


So cool, the German edition of THE PROPOSITION released yesterday (Dec. 4th) on Amazon! They are releasing the trilogy in  two books instead of three, the first now and the second one in January 15th 2015. Here’s the link to the book on 

So in other news,  I’m two thirds of the way through the revisions on EXPOSING THE HEIRESS and holding my breath that this works.  This essentially had a been a “square peg into a round hole” revision to make it fit the new line. I hope I’m doing it, but I’m too deep in the middle of it to really know. So this weekend, more work. I’m hoping to get it done next week so I can tackle Christmas and get back to CAGED MAGIC.

And I’ve fallen in love with audio books! To relieve stress, right now I’m walking…and I’m doing a good two miles while listening to audio books. I swear it’s saving my sanity. I was MAD this week because it rained and I couldn’t go. Which is super petty of me since we desperately need the rain here in So Cal. And I can listen to audio books at the gym too, but I have to actually drive there :-) Anyway, the book that I got hooked on is REAPER’S STAND by Joanna Wylde. The male narrator on that book is hot! So hot! Now I’m listening to REAPER’ S PROPERTY. Unfortunately there’s only a female narrator on this one, and not the super sexy guy :-(  The point however, is audio books + exercise + stress relief for me.

What are your weekend plans?

    Congratulations on the German editions. They look lovely. Did it strike you funny that the took the trilogy to two books? I’d think the sales of 3 would be great than 2 but what do I know ;)?

    Great idea with the audio books. I’m glad to hear you can relieve the stress you’re under using them while walking. And you get more reading in. It’s a win win :).

    I’m sure the revisions are going to be fine. We know you always second guess yourself but it all works out good.

    It’s been a blessing watching the weather report out there and seeing rain. You guys are in such need for it.

    We’re going to put up the tree w/o decorations and see if it survives the cat ;).

    Have a great weekend :)!

    So glad you’ve found a way to relieve stress, in a healthy way. I used to walk all the time.

    So proud of you getting your books in other languages! That is super cool!

    And we all want you to finish those revisions so you can work on WS…I love them!

    Have a great one!!

    Guten Morgen! (My German skills consist of: good morning, good night, good day, thank you, you’re welcome, sh*thead, & moron.) Yay for your release! I hope they love your stories as much over there as I do here. =o)

    I’m so glad you found a good stress reliever. You’ve been a busy gal this year and could probably use some de-stressing. :hugs:

    Plans for this weekend: hammering out these edits so maybe I can clear my brainpan for writing again. Maybe if the weather gets nice, I’ll work in the woods to do my own de-stressing. ;o)

    LOVE the Reaper series. I haven’t really gotten on-board the audio book thing. I think I got a Darynda Jones book free in audio for something but haven’t opened it yet. And I’ve got THE PROPOSITION on audio. Nope, haven’t listened to it either. I don’t “listen” well. :( My brain doesn’t seem to be wired that way.

    You’ll get the ins and outs figured out on HEIRESS. *nods* You’ll find the key and it will all fall into place. I’m working this weekend too but that’s my excuse for not having to decorate. ;)

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Viki, great question on why LYX (the German publisher) split the books that way. Their print books program has a word count requirement and as three books, the length wasn’t long enough. So after some discussion, we decided to make them two books. Now the Brazil publisher is doing it in three books as their program is different.

    I do always second guess my work, but this is a little different as this wasn’t my choice so I’m trying to transform this book into something it wasn’t meant to be — if that makes any sense :-)

    The rain really has been great and we may get a tad more this weekend.

    I hope the kitty let’s the Christmas decorations live, LOL! By the way, how is PeeWee doing?

    Ashlynn, the thing that has bummed me most about the time it’s taking to do these revisions is not moving forward on Linc’s book. That book is hard, but I love doing it.

    Thanks on the books in other languages. It was all surreal when the offers came in and now it’s real and super awesome.

    B.e., Love your German! It’s better than mine.

    I hope your edits are going well. I know that feeling of wanting to get it done to clear the way for writing.

    Maybe you’ll see a deer this weekend or some cool critter (NO SNAKES!) have a great weekend!

    Silver, I’m trying so so hard not to buy the Reapers for my Kindle but just listen on Audio. It’s been awesome to walk to, and I’m covering a lot of territory. (I need a break from the gym.) But I can’t listen to audio books while working or anything like that.

    “I have to write” is a great way to get out of a lot of things, isn’t it??? LOL! Sigh, I have no idea how I’m going to pull off Christmas.

    Have a great weekend!

    Jenn, It’s going to kind of strange for you having the series in different formats throughout world :).

    Oh, I get it on the revisions. That makes it even more difficult for you.

    I just got back from the vet with the kitty. He had is 1st birthday physical. Needless to say he hates me right now since he got a shot in each hip. So tomorrow I’m betting he’s going to let me know how he really feels with the Christmas tree. At least I’m prepared.

    PeeWee got his cast off this past Tuesday but he still has to take it easy – aaaa right. He’s doing what he wants.

    Love that photo of Corky :).

    Have a great day!

    Viki, it’s surreal on this series :-)

    Yay on Pee Wee getting his cast off, but I’m sure he’s tired of taking it easy. I bet your daughter-in-law if feeling protective right now — I would be.

    Poor kitty getting two shots. And yep, he might take any opportunity to express his opinion of that experience. Hope you guys have a peaceful weekend, LOL!

    Oh and thanks on Corky. He’s too funny.
