Monday…Again!

The wizard and I went to dinner Friday night to celebrate our anniversary. We went down to the beach for dinner, very nice! I had lobster and a couple glasses of wine.

calamariI even tried Calamari! Wizard has been “suggesting” I try it for years.

He swears it doesn’t taste like fish. I don’t  like fish, although I love shellfish.

So we’re in this lovely restaurant, overlooking the boats and I get a sudden infusion of courage (it tasted like wine) and we ordered a calamari appetizer.

Okay, I’ll concede it doesn’t taste like fish.

It tastes like fried, stringy rubber. But the dipping sauce was really interesting so I ate it.

And drank wine :-) It went down real smooth that way!

The rest of the weekend was mostly spent working.  One thing I never knew before publishing was how hard I’d work.  But I chose this life!

Oh, I had to run to Target for something else, and accidentally came out with a book. Nalini Singh’s BLAZE OF MEMORY! I love Nalini’s books but now I’m all testy because I have so little time to read. The book is sitting here on my desk taunting me.

So how was your weekend?

Addiction and A Commercial…

So the Wizard and I were watching TV and some character said everyone has an addiction. Wizard turns to me and asks… “What’s your addiction?”

Umm, hello? Coffee!!!

He laughed, because he knew he was just getting me to admit it. Sneaky wizard! Yes I KNOW I’m addicted to coffee, thank you.

Seriously, are all husbands this helpful?

Sigh…

Anyone else want to confess and addiction?

Monday Mania

cat-makes-evil-plansSee the picture? That’s what I’ve been saying! It’s a lot of work to come up with evil plans!

And now I’m completely slammed with work. Hey…evil plans and books don’t come up with themselves…

And how the neck did November sneak up on me?

Anyway, I might be scarce for a while.

But don’t leave me alone! Please!

For starters, tell me how your weekend was,  I really want to hear!

My weekend was fine.  Halloween night was a light turnout.  The rest of the weekend I was either working or fretting about working!

Okay you’re turn!

Release Day!

You guys are so incredibly awesome, I just want to say a big THANK YOU! The last year has been wild. Seriously. Huge ups and downs.  And through it all, you guys have kept me smiling. Whatever happens with SOUL MAGIC now, at least I’m hanging out with friends :-)

How I want to share a picture that made me happy dance! Wild Witchlady from Facebook, known as Wildwitchca on Twitter, a bookseller in Canada sent me this pic of Soul Magic as her Staff Pick

Soul  Magic Staff Pick

You can see her review of the book here

Don’t you think that’s worth blowing off work and having appletinis all day? (If my editors read this, I’m just kidding! Really!)

One More Day!

Soul Magic is out tomorrow!

Over the weekend, a bookseller (wildwitchca) read SOUL MAGIC and commented on TWITTER.  She loved it, but it was quite an experience for me, checking Twitter to  see what she thought as she progressed through the story.  At one point, she said she only had about 90 pages to go when I signed off in the evening.

Did I actually get up in the middle of the night to check and see if she finished?

Almost. I woke up and thought about it, but then I knew that if I did it, I’d never sleep.  If she hated it, I ‘d be crushed. If she loved it, I’d be excited. If there was no comment,  my imagination would go into overdrive!

I waited until morning and was thrilled that she loved it and said she was going to make SOUL MAGIC a Staff Pick in her store.  So cool! I’m Appletini-Happy!

I believe my guest blog is will go up at RR&H Novel Thoughts today if you’d like to hop over. I scheduled these a while ago,  so I’m gong by my calendar.

Still VERY slow in reading–one book this week. SILVER FALLS by Anne Stuart.  I have to say, I found the actions of the heroine uneven and often baffling, BUT the plot caught me. I love the good brother/bad brother dynamics. All in all, it was an interesting read.

Your turn! How was your weekend?
