Happy Friday Five

Let’s do our random Friday Five

  1. 3 more days until Savaged Dreams is released! That’s the good news.
  2. The bad news is we had a senseless murder in a convenience store not far from us. It’s so heartbreaking and enraging.  All of us are left wondering WHY, DEAR GOD, WHY??  But there is no answer, and I just have to remember that there are more good people than bad.
  3. We’re going to a niece’s high school graduation party this weekend. I’m looking forward to that.
  4. I’m making Twix Cookies to take to the a party because Wizard asked me to :-)
  5. My shoulder/arm thing is the same, and I still don’t have the referral to an orthopedic. But I’ll see my RA doc next week, and he will try to help if he can so I’m hopeful.

So that’s my Friday Five, what are yours? I hope you all have a great weekend!

Our weekend was good. Saturday we were busy doing errands and looking at houses we can’t afford. On Sunday CPA Boy (oldest son) came out, and we had a great time going to breakfast and catching up. Then CPA Boy showed me of video of himself swimming with sharks in Tahiti. SHARKS PEOPLE! I don’t know where I went wrong with that boy…but the picture was cool :-) CPA boy assured me that the sharks don’t bother people. And since he showed up alive and with all his limbs intact, I’ll take his word for it.

Otherwise, I am writing Savaged Devotion (book 3 in Savaged Illusions series) and stressing about the story. Wizard keeps reminding me that I do this on every book and hands me a glass of medicinal wine. I just have to just trust my writing process.

And the wine. Lots of wine, LOL!!

How was your weekend?

Friday Five

Let’s share 5 random things about our week!

  1. Insomnia is dogging me this week, and I just want to say, Thank God for my Kindle. I read or watch You Tube videos. If I’m not watching puppy videos, then I love Trevor Noah and John Oliver :-)  (This isn’t political, they just amuse me at 2 a.m.)
  2. I love our pool, but the salt system is giving Wizard fits right now. And it’s not cheap. However, Wizard is fantastic at troubleshooting this, so he’ll get it fixed. This stuff really falls under normal maintenance for a pool, but it’s still annoying and I’m very glad I don’t have to deal with it.
  3. My son called yesterday to tell me all about his trip to Tahiti.  For awhile as he talked, I wished I was in Tahiti with a Mai Tai. I don’t think I’ve had a Mai Tai in decades but it sounds tropical. However once my son told me how long it took to travel to Tahiti, and how tired they were once they arrived, I remembered why I don’t travel to exotic places — I’m too lazy. I’ll just have a frozen margarita in my backyard :-)
  4. I bet Wizard a lunch and he lost! But this is bad news for me. My GP’s office screwed up, not getting the right referral so I can see an orthopedic for my shoulder. This is insane people. Seriously. I had two phone calls with them today trying to make them understand they referred me to my regular rhematologist not an orthopedic. They swore they’d check into it and call back. I told Wizard, “I bet you a lunch tomorrow they don’t call.”  Of course they didn’t call back as promised, so Wizard has to eat lunch at home tomorrow. Good thing I’m just in pain rather than seriously sick. And really, I’m okay, but there are people whose lives depend on better care than this. I worry about them.
  5. In good news! Both me and my team (my assistant, Anna and my formatter, Amy) have been working our butts off, and we have SAVAGED VOWS up for pre-order! Seeing both these books up for pre-order represents almost a year of work for me, and is tangible proof that I’m accomplishing what I set out to do! For so long, I wasn’t sure if we’d pull this off. In addition to Anna and Amy, also want to thanks my cover artist, Jaycee DeLorenzo, my editor Sasha Knight and my copy editor Kimberly Cannon. I’m very fortunate to work with an extraordinary team. Now I just have to get Savaged Devotion written in record time with a crappy shoulder. I love a challenge, LOL!

Okay that’s my Friday Five. Time to share yours! I really do enjoy reading them :-) Have a great weekend everyone!

Weekend Roundup

I can’t believe it! Two more weeks until Savaged Dreams is released! Liza and Justice will go out into the world. One of the advance review (on Netgalley) says;

…holy shit this book was absolutely mesmerizing and there was no way on Earth I could put it down!! 

All the work, sweat, insomnia and gut cramping worry is worth it when I see an honest review like that! Savage Dreams is up for pre-order now, and book 2, Savaged Vows will be up for pre-order soon, probably in a week.

Book 3 is currently torturing me. But this is what happens when I have too many balls, and decided throw them all up in the air.

Then set the on fire.

Oh and did I mention the fiery balls are rigged them with an explosive device so if one of them hits the ground…

KABOOM!

And there I am on the ground, staring up a  dozen flaming balls arcing toward me. And somehow I have to catch them all.  But you know, no pressure…Bwhahahaha!!!

Anyhow…in good news, tonight Wizard and I are meeting a friend at a wine bar for Martini Madness.

How was your weekend?

Happy Friday!

I saw my doctor yesterday for my arm/shoulder/neck pain…and it’s more specialists and increasing meds. Hello? I’m not going to just mask this with pills. We’re pretty sure it’s a pinched nerve, among other things. The x-rays showed some problems with my neck, but nothing in my arm and shoulder. So now I wait for more referrals.

I was frustrated when I got home. Wizard, however, had the solution.  Right after dinner, he left then returned with these:

Two extra-large Hershey’s chocolate bars. The man is crazy but in the absolute best way! He always knows how to cheer me up and make me laugh.

So what gesture cheers you up?

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
