Belgium? Bulgravia? Boston? I meant to take a couple of days off. I got lazy. And I didn’t have anything to say. So I hid. I also killed my Bunn coffee maker on Sunday. 😦 This makes me have a very large sad. The replacement will be here today. Yay for Amazon Prime and one day shipping, though I ordered it Sunday and one-day shipping only works on business days.
In the midst of my laziness, I watched softball–every game of the brackets. University of Oklahoma plays University of Tennessee in the Women’s College World Series in a best of three finals series with the second game tonight. OU came back to win it in the bottom of 12th last night. Go Big Red!
I read. I’ve long been a fan of Julie Leto and I finally got around to reading her Dirty series. OMG! I wanted to *headdesk* for not reading this series sooner! This is sexy suspense. There’s romance but not a HEA and the heroine, Marisela Morales, is a Latina from Tampa who is all kickass and smart, even though she just managed to get through high school. The books are on sale digitally. The first one DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS is the place to start. Wow. And Frankie Vega, Marisela’s ex might be a pain but he’s like dancing the salsa on a hot Miami night. Just sayin’…
I caught up on some business things, like dealing with contracts, etc. for the NRCA reception in Atlanta at RWA Nationals in July.
I wrote some. Not much, but a little. Still waiting to get edits back on ROGUE MOON. Tomorrow, I’ll get all the “back up” material ready to go–links, blurbs, upcoming release info, etc. necessary to go into the final document for formatting. I have hopes it will be live by the weekend. I also settled on a name for the Penumbra Papers prequel novel–BLACK MAGIC WOMAN. Here, have a taste of the opening:
This was only Day One of a what was shaping up to be a bloody weird week and the gods had been drinking again. Too bad Sade Marquis didn’t have that option. She was still on duty. Dammit. Not to mention it was only nine in the morning. If things got any stranger, she might just change her mind.
Am I happy to be back in Sade’s head? Damn straight I am! Also, look for some additions around there. I really need to get a Penumbra Papers page added and actually…you know…get some pictures put on my Heroes and Villains page. Ah ha! Procrastination. I must look at sexy men on the internet.
