Happy Friday

My website went through updates, and now when I log in, I have to do math to “prove my humanity.” I kid you not. Apparently the ability to do math proves we’re human. Calculators and computers will be so sad to learn that :-( In any case,  I absolutely hate it. It’s just annoying more than anything. I can actually do simple math but why should I have to? I thought that was the point of usernames and passwords. Making me jump through more hoops just to get into my own website is frustrating.

Hmm, it seems I’m suddenly a ranty witch :-) With all that’s been going on, it’s pretty funny that I’m losing it over something like a simple A+B=C math problems that takes me about 3 seconds to complete.

In other news, I’m working my tail off now that I have a reasonable handle on revising CAGED MAGIC. I’m also finalizing details for the release date and will announce it soon. My assistant, Anna, is making plans too. Exciting times! And scary. CAGED MAGIC is a huge, some would say, insane risk. But risk keeps life interesting.

This weekend will probably be quiet, maybe we’ll see CPA Boy and for sure, I’m working. What about you guys? Any weekend plans?

    I blame all this extra security crap on the spammers and scammers. If not for them, none of this would be necessary. And get me started on the password hoops we have to jump through now. :steams: I don’t blame you.

    Anyhoo, this weekend I have to write a letter to the guy I’m hoping will do the covers for my genie books and finalize things with that. I’m also doing a read-through of another book that I’d like to slip into the late fall pub slot – since Accidental Death is almost ready (squee) and Djinnocide can wait until June. Have to run a couple errands today and then the weekend is all mine. Yay.

    I meant ‘don’t’ get me started. Ugh, you’d think with a case of edit-brain, I’d have caught that. =o\

    I can’t see the risk with Caged Magic. I think it’s going to do wonderful! The WS is how I found you. :) So think of all the new fans you will gain with the new WS.

    Yeah…spammers, have to prove myself just to post something has become so annoying. I’ve had to change PWs so many times I can never remember any of them! FB was making me prove I wasn’t a bot the other day just to share posts! Say wha??

    B.e., wow you ahve a lot going on with a publishing schedule. That’s awesome!

    Yeah I just went through password hoops on two different sites this week and had to give up. Neither were writing related but still annoying.

    Hope you have a good weekend!

    I want dates! So I can start my Wingslayer reread! Can’t wait to revisit that world. I’m formatting NIGHT SHIFT and hope it’s live by Monday. Stormageddon aka Sprout is coming tomorrow afternoon to play while his momma photographs a birthday party (for $$ even!!!) Lawyer Guy and I are going to do the Big Daddy and Jammie thing–right after we clean the house in the morning. Hello, DEADLINE! No time for cleaning! LOLOL

    Have a great weekend, witches!

    Oh man, I can see myself spitting bullets if all of a sudden I had to “prove” I was human to use the computer. So sorry you have to deal with this frustration. Maybe there is a way to turn off the second check.

    If Caged Magic is a risk, I’m sure it’s a risk worth taking. I can’t wait to read it. Anna teased us on FB with an excerpt ;).

    Sure hope you get to see CPA boy and celebrate his birthday.

    Not sure what we’re doing this weekend. I know that I am getting together stuff for Purple Heart to pick up Wednesday. Other than that – clean ;).

    Don’t work too hard.

    Have a great weekend.
