New Links

I added about seven new links to my 'Favorite Blogs' sidebar. Check 'em out...they cool. :)

I've just been writing and waiting for news. It's all about patience and persistence these days, and I constantly surprise myself that I still have reserves of both!

Let's Talk About Jill Monroe

So her book, Never Naughty Enough, finally came the other day. Jill sometimes posts here and on the blogs of some of my friends, and she seems like an all-around great lady. So I was really looking forward to reading this book.

Oh. My. God.

You guys are going to love it! Annabelle and Wagner are wonderful characters. Annabelle has worked for Wagner for four years, and has loved him nearly as long, but he never notices her and she hasn't tried to make him...that is until she's hypnotized at a party, hypnotized to be more 'daring' and a host of other things that are so funny, you'll be smiling silly throughout the story. Though we know Annabelle has always had it in her to be this way, the hypnosis gives her that little push to start doing things to make Wagner, a former corporate raider now in business for himself, take notice -- and boy does he ever!

What I loved most about this story is that it was so real. It reminded me of what it was like to fall hard for my Hub, and all the wild and crazy things one does when one finds true love. :) And Wagner's reactions and thoughts are so true and typical of a man. Annabelle completely throws him off balance, and it's so fun to watch. I started it about 11pm last night and finished it a little before 2am. And I know I'm not great at writing 'reviews' -- but trust me, you guys will love this book.

Great job, Jill! Can't wait to read your next one. :)

Hectic

Things are hectic here - family stuff and a four-day school break happening. Hope everyone is doing well. I'll try to get back on track and post something 'worthy' by Wed.

I'm in the newspaper!

Oh, boy, did I get ribbed by my friends, but it was still fun seeing my pic on the FRONT PAGE! Ha! This is the online version of the article. Check out my 5 min. of fame...

A New Day

Can't reveal the details as of yet, but things are really heating up with my film and TV work. There are fires burning people! If things turn out as hoped for, I'll post here right away. :) Looks like lots of travel may be in the near future. I feel like I've been on the phone constantly -- and if anyone knows me -- they know how much I dislike having to talk on the phone. This sounds like a horoscope, doesn't it?

Well, anyway, lots of stuff going on - some great, some not so great. But, that's life, and I've been reminded why family and friends are so very important.

I'm Writing...

So, obviously haven't been posting regularly. I'm working on a female-based fantasy, something I feel I've leading up to these last few years with trying my hand at romance, then moving onto paranormal and now this. My goal is to finish it by end of March.

One thing I did do was pay my RWA conference fee and hotel room. I'm all set for Atlanta. Yippee! I have a feeling this year will be a fun, laid back, relaxing time. Anyone else going?

Musing of the Day

1. My treadmill makes very good storage unit. You can sit all kinds of things on it. :)

2. When you're trying to speak to someone who doesn't speak your language - if you just use their accent somehow they'll understand you. This cracks me up.
