Happy Friday and Mother’s Day!

Sending out a special wish to all the Moms!

Today I’m finishing up CAGED MAGIC to send off to the editor. I’ve been clocking 12 to 16 hour days (I wish I was exaggerating!).  I can’t wait to get a break — but not this weekend. Saturday I’m making enchiladas to talk out to my mother-in-law for dinner. I haven’t seen her in a while, so that’ll be nice. I volunteered this because I thought the kids were busy (and I always understand that). But it turns out they are coming over Sunday so I need to figure out something to have for them too. We’ll barbecue hamburgers or something easy so it’ll work out and we’ll have fun.

So what are your plans?

    Yay for finishing Caged Magic for the editor! I know you’ve busted your butt on this one. :hugs: At least you’re getting a break from writing – if not from life. That’s good. Enjoy your enchiladas (dang, now I want enchiladas) and your grilled burgers.

    Nothing’s going on here but work. The Kid’s been out of work so long, I told her not to get me anything. She started a new job last week, but she needs to hang onto her money. Hubs and I will play it like it’s just another day – cuz it pretty much is. Plus, I have to get these proofs done so I can set Accidental Death for pre-order next week, and make it live on the 18th. I really love this book. Here’s hoping the rest of the world feels the same way.

    Dang! 16 hour days, teeth work and kitchen nightmare all at same time. That would push anyone over the edge of sanity.

    And I feel like I was ignoring everyone too. Yesterday, was release day and had a HUGE FB even bash…lasted all dang day. Well worth it, got some fans I think. So all is good. But I was wiped. I’m still answering questions and stuff from that event.

    Have no clue about mom’s day. Prob nothing. If I had my way, I would curl up with the hubs and just veg all day. We never get to do that anymore.

    And I gotta say thank you for all the hard work you’re putting into CM. We WS lovers appreciate it more than you know. <3

    ACK!!! FRIDAY!!!!???? NOOOooooOOOOO!

    Okay. I knew it was Friday but I’m still not ready. I have a book signing at a tiny community library in a tiny town in SW Oklahoma on Saturday. We’re making a partial family roadtrip–LG, Only, Stormageddon, and me. BB has to work. I’ll visit with readers, maybe sell some books–not expecting to–while the others go photograph the scenery. Only has been asked to display and sell her photos in a Native American art and jewelry store. Then we’re hitting another little town at the base of the Wichita Mountains for burgers before a quick detour through the Wildlife Refuge. All that depends on the weather. We’re supposed to be under the gun today and tomorrow.

    Sunday, I plan to write because I’m behind! Getting ever so close to CAGED MAGIC. YAYAYAYAY! Have a great weekend, Jen and enjoy some down time. Happy Mother’s Day to all!

    Happy Mother’s Day to you also…. I just want to spend a quiet mother’s day with my kids and family…. It will be nice to barbecue and hang out on nice sunny Sunday. Can’t wait to read Caged Magic….

    B.E., I just sent the manuscript :-)

    I saw ACCIDENT DEATH on Goodreads and marked it this morning, thanks for letting me know! You’ve got a lot to do before the release. Exciting times!

    Hope you do something special for yourself on Mother’s Day!

    Ashlynn, congrats on release day! Dang I missed it! I’ll head over now and get the book. I really was snowed under but hope to catch up a bit now.

    I only work those insane days at the end of a project. I don’t like doing it, but it’s just how it goes these days. And thank you on CM. I’m pretty freaked (and we all know that’s normal for me). I want it to be good, but I just don’t know.

    Hope you have a great Mom’s Day!

    Silver, that’s an ambitious road trip with a busy toddler :-) I hope your signing is fantastic. By the way, love the name Stormagedden.

    And wow on Only being asked to sell her photos in the store –that’s huge validation for her!

    Hope the weather is cooperative. I saw the tornado on the news and thought of you.

    Congratulations on getting Caged Magic sent off :). Now you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    I love the bear :)!

    You are so nice making the dinner for Saturday. You now have me wanting enchiladas :). I’m glad your boys will be making it Sunday. You’ll have a wonderful time. Relax. Oh will Bailey be joining you?

    My day has been what one would call horrid. Took my car in because the bakes have felt soft for quiet a while but hubs wouldn’t believe me. After several months he finally drove it and agreed. So I take it to BMW where they inform me that my detailing of the car got silicon on the brake pads which caused the rotors to glaze. Needless to say all has to be replaced. Mega money :(.

    Tomorrow we go out to celebrate hubs and youngest birthdays. Should be very nice. We’re going to a place right on Lake Erie. I’m looking forward to the sunset :).

    Happy Mother’s Day!

    Viki, oh man, I am so sorry about the car repairs! It sounds expensive. I feel so bad for you!

    I really wanted this weekend off, but just got copy edits for Exposing the Heiress that need to be done ASAP. Could have been worse though, at least I have CM done for the moment.

    I don’t think Bailey’s coming this weekend :-(

    Hope you guys have a great birthday celebration for hubs and youngest, and you have a good Mother’s Day!
