Uhm…It IS Monday

funny-pictures-my-official-monday-face[EDIT: Yeah..I sorta forgot a subject/title line *headdesk* Which means WordPress grabbed the first line…] Time just keeps marching inexorably along, doesn’t it? Ah, well. How was your weekend? Mine…was. It’s never long enough, which is weird because I work most weekends. 🙄 What should it matter, right?

So, here’s what I did…

I celebrated the acceptance of COWGIRLS DON’T CRY. Next step is line edits and getting on the production schedule. 🙂

I discovered that the first three chapters for the proposal for COWGIRLS SWEETHEART aren’t the first three chapters at all. So…more work. I also figured out I really hate writing a synopsis for a book I haven’t written yet. I don’t write linearly and writing a synopsis is too much like doing an outline. *shudder* Ah well. I shall persevere.

The family celebrated Baseball Boy’s birthday at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill. Giant chicken-fried steaks. And cheese fries. Yeah, no dinner for me! We got to see (and HOLD!) Bean Sprout. He slept through lunch. He’s such a goo’ boy!

Oh, and I discovered a new-to-me author. I should not read blogs listing ebooks on sale. I found one where the blurb intrigued me. It was .99 so why not? I mean, it’s not like I don’t have 5 books to read for contests or already have 100+ books on the TBR pile. Nope. Had to go buy a new one. And then get stuck in a long checkout line. Without the contest book I’m reading. So what did I do? I pulled up that 99 center on my iPhone. And couldn’t frickin’ put the book down. Grrrr. And then downloaded the second book and had to read it. Instead of working. Or read contest books. *headdesk* The author is Dannika Dark and the book is SEVEN YEARS. It’s about Shifters. She’s funny but knows how to be dark. I’ll have quotes on Wednesday.

Today, I HAVE to get SWEETHEART sorted out. I have to hide my Kindle. And at some point, I should consider doing housework…or not. shifty-eyes-ani2faster

Who had fun and what do you have planned for the week?

  1. *slapping Silver’s hand* for posting new author info-lol
    Just ordered Seven Years and Six months for tablet, with what I have starting on Friday buying E books should not be one of them. If everything keeps going forward, I should close on the new house 4/11!!! Then the fun begins!!
    Happy Monday!!

    I went to JR Ward’s Q&A session in Cincy over the weekend. Nothing like spending an entire day with other readers. It was mega awesome and if you read the BDB series, I have posted my Q&A wrap up on my blog already.

    Have my first 5K since my foot surgery this weekend, so am trying to to freak out too much. My foot has decided it wants to swell again for some reason this week.

      No, no bad foot! You must cooperate with Liza so she can run! I’m proud of you for training and getting out there to run it.

      I read your breakdown. It almost made me want to go back and read the books. I read the first one a couple of years ago because it seemed like EVERYONE I knew loved the series. Except me. 😦 Ah well. I’m not sure why it didn’t resonate with me. At first glance those books should be my reading crack. Maybe when I get through with my current TBR pile…

  3. Okay, I have no idea how I missed this on Monday. I think Monday somehow oozed onto Tuesday a bit.

    Plans for the week? Electric Dude fixing our screwy wiring. Getting eye exams. Pest control – if it’s not raining on Friday. Other than that? Who knows. Trying to make my brain do some of the thinking type stuff. So far, it’s a crap shoot. ;o)

    • Silver James says:

      Janet missed it too. Who knows? It was Monday! 😆 I’m glad ED is there fixing the wiring. No fun when things go POP-FIZZ-SIZZLE.

      If you get your brain on line, let me know how you did it. I’m not having much luck with mine either.

Got something to say?
