Sum up...
Bad girl....

I know, I know... I've been a bad girl about updating my blog. I've been so busy writing that I haven't had much time for anything else. I did get three more contracts and have an additional two stories started. It's my hope that by sharing this I can avoid the beating you all threatened to give me if I didn't get back on here and blog. LOL


Hubby is on vacation this week so that means one week of my kids losing their minds and him walking around behind me asking if I need anything done. I get that's it's mean to say 'go away' but really can't he go somewhere for a bit. LOL

Stupid thing of the week...

We had a computer problem here a while back. The power surged and Shane's computer wouldn't turn back on. He MADE me call the insurance company and jump through all these hoops which I did. The insurance man comes to the house and takes photos. He then has me take the thing to be repaired. They have it a week. I call to check on the status of it and they say that they can't find it (never good). They then call me back and tell me that once the tech took the 3 1/2 floppy out of the drive it booted up just fine. ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR I called Shane at work and let him know how pleased I was for having to take my writing time to fix his non-problem. Oh, I also told him that I was free to pick on him about this forever!

Kid update....

I took my oldest two boys school clothes shopping. They suddenly turned into girls and got all picky on me. Four full blown arguments later we were heading out of the mall and I do not plan on going back. They better hope they don't grow!

My youngest one was listening to me talk on the phone to my mother-in-law. I was telling her about a mysterious order from my oldest sons room (I have boys what do you expect). All of the sudden my youngest breaks out into That Smell by Lynyrd Skynyrd. I thought that was pretty darn funny.

Book/writing up date....

I got paid... I got paid! Sorry, it still amazes me that not only would someone want to read what I write, but they'd want to pay me for it too! I'll be on a natural high over this for months so bear with me please. I will tell you that for being a brand new author, for mixing many genres, almost no HEA(happily ever after endings), and just barely qualifying as romance I was VERY please with my sales with NCP!

I think I mentioned above that I signed three more contracts. That brings me up to 11 with NCP thus far. I'm heavy into a Rockin' Vamp one that I hope you'll all like. I promise to finish the Italian Gods one soon!

I wanted to give a quick shout out to Jack, a friend of mine, who is helping me with weapons questions. He is an amazing asset! I'd also like to thank One (don't ask) for his help ahead of time too.

Well, I'm off to listen to some more Alice in Chains and write my Rockin' Vamp one. Wish me luck! :)

    About bloody time you updated, girl. Are you going to keep this thing up to date? If you are, I'll list this blog on my links page. But you have to promise to update at least once a week *shaking finger*.

    And congratulations on DOD going to paperback-- that's fabulous!
