Happy Friday!

A crazy busy week!

The best part? HER TEMPORARY HERO took off after Entangled put it on sale and placed a Bookbub ad. I was stunned but happily so!

Worst part? Writing the same freaking blurbs. True story, yesterday Wizard came in the house, looked at my wild eyes and said, “Uh, what’s going?”

“The blurbs! Especially Soul Magic, which I can’t get right!”

He backed up a step. “You mean the same ones you’ve been working on?”

Tearing at my hair, I snapped, “Yes. Stupid, freaking–”

“Uh, yeah, gotta go Witch! Later!” And he grabbed his wallet, muttered something about being out of propane for the BBQ and vanished.

No idea why getting propane was such an emergency since I had dinner cooking in the crock pot. Seriously, I’m not that bad :-)  (Just don’t ask Anna, she’ll agree with Wizard when it comes be me and blurbs!)

And now for a little fun! CPA Boy and Special K (oldest son and his wife) have a new addition to their family. Meet Max:


He’s a six month old Maltipoo who needed a home so they took him. He’s all of seven pounds. CPA Boy calls him Max Muscles. Wizard and I haven’t met him yet, but we will soon!

Here is their entire pack:

Cookie, Corky and Max

That’s Cookie on the left, Corky in the center and Max on the right.

This weekend I’m working and cleaning bathrooms. I know…you’re all jealous, right? What are you doing?

    I know you’re going to want to hit me, but what was wrong with the original blurbs? Did they belong to the original publisher? Rewriting them would have to totally suck. :hugs: Aww, Max looks like a sweetie-pie. And, of course, I’m a little biased about the name. Here’s hoping their Max is a easier to have around.

    I already cleaned bathrooms – sorta. Hey the toilets and sinks are cleaned, and those are the most important things. I’ll get the tubs and the floors next time. I clean in stages. LOL

    I’ll be working this weekend like usual. Bloodflow is off to the editor, so it’s time for new words on the next SCIU book – Fertile Ground. Same world as Dying Embers, but different characters. And I have to start putting the cover together for Bloodflow.

    B.e., I don’t want to hit you, it’s a fair question. The publisher wrote the original blurbs and I don’t want to cross any lines. Plus those blurbs tended to focus on the worldbuilding more than the characters and story hooks.

    You’re ahead of me on cleaning, but I’m getting there.

    You’re juggling as many projects as I am! How exciting to work on a new cover.

    Have a great weekend!

    I hate writing blurbs. I’ve taken classes on them. I still suck. Hang in there. You’ll find the right combo of world and character teases to make it work.

    KYOOTE puppy! How do they get along with Bailey Dog?

    Wiz is a wuss. Just sayin’… And he could have at least brought you wine after getting the propane. ;)

    Weekend? Oh. Yeah. That’s tomorrow. Huh. And it’s a long weekend. Huh again. I’m working. I think. And eating out. LOLOL Have a great weekend, witches!

    Silver, I know, right? Blurbs are mean! I know the formula and still can’t nail it. Anyway, Soul Magic is done, the other two are drafted.

    We don’t mix Bailey with other dogs. While we all adore Bailey beyond words, he just has a crazy switch when it comes to other dogs (not people though). But these three all get along great.

    LOL on Wizard!

    Hope you get a break this weekend for a little fun!

    I feel for you. I’d have one heck of a time coming up with just the right blurbs. But, you always seem to get it right :).

    I clean bathrooms on Thursdays ;).

    I love the pup. I just got an email form my middle son that he and his girl just adopted a kitty. It’s they’re first animal.

    Have a great weekend :)!

    Viki, thanks! I don’t know if I get it right, but I sure go through a lot of words trying :-)

    I used to clean bathrooms on Thursday too, until the last few years. I love schedules.

    Awww!!! How exciting for your middle boy and girlfriend!

    Hope you have a great weekend too!

    LOL the blurbs. The Blurbs!!! So very mean to be torturing you so. They’re gonna be fab though. *nods*

    And oh my word. The cute of the pups. It’s ridiculous!

    Totally cute! All 3 furbabies. What is it about cleaning anyway? Just when you think you’re done you have to start it all again from the beginning *sigh*

    Anna, thank you for the confidence in The Blurbs! LOL! I’m on the last one, so it’s probably safe to talk to me again :-)

    The pups are adorable. And they all get along which is pretty amazing.

    Peggy, you are so right about cleaning! I do it over and over. I’d much rather go to my son’s and play with this dogs :-) Hope you had a great weekend!
