Wednesday Worthy

Yesterday I was grocery shopping when I remembered that Bailey Dog is supposed to be coming over this weekend. So I ended up on the pet food aisle where I chose two kinds of treats for Bailey. I tossed them in my basket and resumed shopping when it dawned on me: I’d bought treats for Bailey but not Wizard.


So I doubled back and bought Wizard some ice cream and some cheesecake treats. (Neither of which I care for, but he loves.)

At dinner that night, I described my decision making process to Wizard.

He stared at me. “Let me see if I understand this correctly, you were compelled to buy me the same amount of treats that you bought a dog?”


Wizard nodded. “Man I love that dog! I get Neapolitan ice cream and strawberry cheesecake dessert cups! Bailey rules.”

See? I’m NOT the only crazy one in this house.

Here’s our candidate for today:

Handsome Young Muscle Man Standing In Water PondWhat do you think, is he worthy?

I’m playing a life and death game of “Can This Book Be Saved?” It’s an awesome game if you:

1) Think stomach acid pain is exciting

2) Believe sleep is for losers when you can lie awake and get some quality worrying time in.

3) Don’t want to have a life. Any life.

4) Think it’s acceptable to go to the store to buy paper plates but come home with paper towels.
I mean they are on the same aisle, right? At least I got close.

All that said, I love this editor. She’s make me dig hard and find the emotional crux of the story, along with the cleanest way to tell the story. This is what an editor is supposed to do, and I’m extremely happy with her work.

Tomorrow we’re having the granite counters put in the kitchen. I’m still a little shocked we’re ding this after years of talking/saving/hoping. I’m not sure how I’ll work through that thought. I’ll probably have to do it on my laptop.  But all this means that today I have to empty out the cupboards and clean out under the sink. In my spare time. Hey! I know I should multi-task and do that while I’m not sleeping :-)

I don’t have a good pictures, so I’ll throw this guy up today because I wish I could sleep like that!


So what do you think?

Wednesday Worthy!

Today’s The Baby Bargain Blog Tour stop is Page Flippers. Stop by and enter for a chance to win a $50.00 gift card!

So, The Baby Bargain has been out about four weeks now.  When I originally singed with  Entangled Publisher I was cautious and a bit unsure. But now, after three solid weeks in their top ten (the first week out the sales were just building) , I am thrilled with the publisher. I’m very pleased with the editing process (I’m sure mistakes got through–digital is like that for many reasons) but their editing at all the stages including revision, copy edit and proofreading was as rigorous as any I’ve ever been through. My editor not only edits, but answers every question I have and cares as much as I do about the book. So far, I love this publisher :-)  All they work me hard, that’s something I respect (when I’m not griping, LOL).

Then there’s my beloved THE PROPOSITION. It did pretty well for the first of three books in a series. I decided to take a risk and offer it to a reviewer known to be brutally honest.  She read it last night and contacted me today to let me know she really liked it. This, for me was a huge personal validation. The review will be up on her site next week, and I’ll link it then. But you guys have been with me through all this so I just wanted to share.

Now  for our Wednesday Hunk, I went to iStock to use up some credits I had leftover there. It’s a small picture, but what do you think?


Is he hunk worthy?

Wednesday Worthiness!

We’ve gotten two estimates on the two bathrooms.  Yeah…it’s going to be a process.

Then I got up yesterday to find out THE BABY BARGAIN is a B&N bestseller and my publisher, Entangled is doing a special promo. So cool! They are having a contest for a chance to win 5 free Indulgence books! Here is the link, go enter here! It’s really easy.

It’s all so much fun, but a really wild ride.  I’m pretty sure I haven’t processed it all yet except to be very grateful–so many people have helped me. And frankly, a lot of this is pure luck. And I’m also absolutely thrilled.

So onto our candidate! I couldn’t find any really good candidates at Bigstock. I think I’ve drained them :-) So this is the guy for today:

Sexy man

So what do you think?

Wing Slayer Worthy

Okay, someone needs to buy the Hostess/Wonder Bread Brand and immediately begin producing Home Pride Bread again.  Because Wizard is NOT HAPPY. I have gone through the entire selection of breads at the grocery store, and nothing is up to Wizard’s standards.

Which means *I* have to hear about his displeasure. Every Single Day.  Even his beloved helicopter isn’t distracting him anymore. I’m running out of ideas here :-)

Okay, enough about our Bread Trauma. Lets move on…

I waited until too late last night to look for a candidate, sorry! I worked until eight last night doing one last read of THE PROPOSITION.  But here’s the guy I found on Bigstock, and it’s up to you to decide if he’s worthy!


So what do you think?

Wizard and Wing Slayer Worthy

Have you guys seen the commercials with the T-Cell Phone Girl? Okay I made up that name, but I bet you know who I mean.   Well Wizard has, and he likes her.  So much so that I was working the other day–my “office” is open to the rest of the first floor–and Wizard says, “Witch I don’t want you to be upset, but I’m giving the T-Cell Phone girl a ride in my helicopter.”

I look away from the computer. “Your toy helicopter that’s about four inches tall at the highest point?”

Wizard says, “Yep. Don’t be jealous.”

Me, “Uh, yeah, I’ll do my best.”

So Wizard flies his helicopter, snickering to himself about the imaginary T-Cell Phone girl in there. Telling me how much she loves flying…

“UH OH.”

I look up again. “What?”

“My helicopter is sinking!’

“What?” I look over, and sure enough, his little helicopter is sinking. “What’s going on?”

Wizard looks so sad. “The T-Cell Phone girl is too fat.”

I cracked up. I swear to you I was crying. “She’s not even in there! She’s not real! It’s just a commercial.”

“Nope.” He shakes his head sadly. “She’s too fat. She sank my helicopter.”

Okay the truth is that he hadn’t charged his battery enough, but he insists on blaming the the imaginary (and very tiny!) T-Cell Phone girl.

Wizard gets an A+ for imagination :-)  (And P.S. to the T-Cell Phone girl–I’m sorry! You’re NOT fat! Seriously. And Wizard still things you’re hot!)

And now, here is today’s  Candidate

What do you think, Wing Slayer Worthy?
