Happy Friday

**Sorry for the late past, apparently my internet was down when this was scheduled to post.

So it’s been a week, huh? But we made it, and I wish you all a Happy Friday, my friends!

Yesterday I had the chance to see an old high school friend whom I hadn’t seen in decades. And I wondered–will I recognize her when she walks through the door?

The answer? INSTANTLY. For some reason, that made me feel good. The connections that we form in life matter. We were both so young then and in very different place. My years before Wizard came into my life were hard, and this friend was a tremendous solace as only a true friend can be. I’m glad that my heart remembered her. We spent hours catching up and I’m sure we’ll see each other again.

Saturday I’m going to my local RWA chapter meeting. Bestselling author Lisa Kessler is speaking, I’m looking forward to that and seeing friends.

I’m working hard plotting out the rest of the Savaged Series (the first book is in copy editing). Writing his trilogy is exhilarating and scary. But that’s exactly how it should be! To writers, fear means two things, we are challenging ourselves to grow and stretch in our craft, and we are telling a story we are passionate about. Hopefully readers will feel that passion too.

What are your plans this weekend? Whatever they are, I hope you have a great weekend!

Choose Your Wednesday Worthy

Because we can all use a break from Real Life this, we have two candidates to choose from today.

Candidate number 1 apparently really likes to pose. I think he’s going for sensual and smoldering rock star. (Should I admit he’d be my pick?)

Candidate #2 is all about brute strength, although that biceps challenges my perception of reality. I’ve seen some intensely ripped guys from my more hardcore gym days and growing up around a karate studio, but I’ve never seen this outside of bodybuilding competitions on TV. (This guy had me at his forearm and lost me at his biceps. However I’d totally buy this in a paranormal romance.)

Which one do YOU think is more worthy?

Weekend Roundup

So how did you do with the time change? A few of you are in states that have the good sense to NOT MESS WITH TIME (I’m looking you, Arizona). So Saturday afternoon, I reset all my clocks, and dang, I was proud. I was ahead of schedule!

Then Wizard ruined it. “Witch,” he called out from upstairs, “Did you reset your clocks?”

Ha! Usually Wizard is the one who does all this, so I happily shouted out, “Yes I did! Even my watches!”

He came down the stairs and says, “You set them all ahead an hour. It’s Fall Back, not Spring Ahead.”

And sure enough, he was right. I’m rolling my eyes so hard as I type this, I’m giving myself a headache. How is it I can keep an entire Wing Slayer Hunter world in my brain, but I can’t figure out how to set the clocks back an hour for the time change???

I’m writing this before we go to dinner for our anniversary, but I’m assuming it’ll be really good and we’ll have a great time.

How was your weekend?

P.S. I may not be able to answer comments until later in the day.

Happy Friday!

Ugh, the heat! Here in Southern CA it’s hot and dry, and both Wizard and I are cranky. Plus, I hate writing a synopsis, and I’m trying to write two of them for the next two books in the Savaged Series; Savaged Vows and Savaged Devotion. You all know how I love these books, but getting all the story beats and emotion into a synopsis for my editor is a massive challenge. I’ll get there–I always do, but I seem to like to take the long way :-) I think a lot of it is just the weather, sinuses and Wizard’s back issues getting to me. Today will be better!

I have something to look forward to this weekend–it’s our anniversary and we’re going to one of our favorite restaurants on the beach. Being married to the love of my life for a few decades is something to celebrate and I’m really looking forward to it!

Do you realize the holidays are here? My calendar is already filling up with Thanksgiving and Christmas plans! Wasn’t it just summer? And how can it be the holidays when it was over 90 here yesterday? I’m confused, LOL!

What are your plans this weekend? Whatever it is, let’s all have a great weekend!

Wednesday Worthy

I can’t say I’m in love with this candidate although I like the idea of the leather jacket. But that’s just me.

Muscular male in blue jeans and black jacket wearing on shirtless body. Isolated on grey background.

What do you think? Is he worthy?
