Sitting Pretty

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , | 2 Comments
So we all survived the winter storm, more or less. Not that 30 inches is anything to sneeze at – but we didn’t lose power, and quite frankly that was the one thing I was really worried about. The kids were off of school for over a week, but aside from that, everything was pretty good. No harm done. Not sure if we’ll be getting anything else this winter or not, but I’ve about had my fill of precipitation at the moment. It’s cool with me if we move right into Spring now. In the meantime, I’ve been editing away on this new(ish) book. Finally got that out to the agent the other night, and I’m giving myself a few days to not look at anything of my own.

Posted in blog | Tagged , , | Leave a comment
I’m over at Word Whores today talking about my own guilty pleasure (computer gaming, of course.). Stop on by if you enjoy a little tank and spank of your own. πŸ˜‰ Otherwise, due to snow issues, I lost power last night from about 6 PM to 4:30 AM this morning, so I missed the craft chat over at Savvy. Hopefully we can get that rescheduled soon, so many apologies there. Almost tried to get out to the local B&N to steal their wireless, but the roads were pretty bad and quite frankly I’d be surprised if any of the stores stayed open past nine anyway. So, there we go. I’m also over at Night Owl Romance today, talking a little bit about animal sidekicks. Check it out for a chance to win a copy of A Brush of Darkness. πŸ™‚… Read more
