Not Monday!?!

Monday again baby Yeah, yeah…. I’ve been hiding from the blog. And Facebook. And Twitter. And G+. Mostly. I have cleared out my inbox, checked on friends and family, yada yada. I hit a mental wall last week and just needed time.

Writing update: COWGIRL’S SWEETHEART came in at 50,500 words. It’s now in the hand of two beta readers. I was pleased. Now to see what the readers have to say. I also got line edits from Mr. HEd. He said some awesome things about my writing in his email but I hadn’t opened the document until late yesterday. I didn’t freak. 😆 So far, he and I are agreeing–mostly. I can say that the book will be even better because of his input. I’m sooooo lucky! As soon as I’m done with it, I’ll start work on both BLUE MOON (Moonstruck Wolves) and the first Nightriders book because those darn bikers won’t shut up. 🙄 I’m also trying to decide if I should make the four main bikers werewolves. NOT the same world as my Wolves. These guys would be the “old-fashioned” kind–bitten in. Thoughts?

Had lunch with Lawyer Guy, Only, and Magic Bean Sprout on Saturday. As sprouts do, MBS is shooting up. And yes, he’s still darling.

On a reading binge. Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series has me by the throat. Damn, this woman can write. One book ripped out my heart, the next one made me laugh every other page–despite the threat of death). Yeah…she’s that good. I’m currently on #11. I have two more novels and then four novellas. I will be sad when it’s over but I can at least stop reading a book a day. 😆 Oh, wait…I normally read a book a day. *sigh*

This week? Finishing line edits on COWGIRL, last minute touches on SWEETHEART, completing my Psy-Changling read, and then it’s back to contest reads. I have both pubbed and unpubbed to read. Yay. Mostly, though, I’ll be staying under the AC because summer has come back with a vengeance!

What about y’all? Reading any good books? Do something fun? Want to vent?

  1. Well, hell. I missed this yesterday – but then again, I was working in the yard and by the time I got done, I was toast, so there ya have it.

    Hey, lady, hide as long as you need to if it means getting stuff sorted out. We’ll all still be around here somewhere. :hugs: Congrats on getting CS finished and on the good feedback from your editor. But you make me tired just reading about all the irons you have in the fire. Damn girl.

    I’m currently beta reading for an acquaintance. Pretty literary stuff, but I’m enjoying it. And I’ve been slowly making my way through a non-fic – Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. Interesting stuff. I read Jen Apodaca’s Sex on the Beach Book Club the other day and that was pretty fun. Nothing worth venting abou… Wait. Can I vent about the morons who used to own this house for a sec? So that digging up the foundation and sealing the remaining walls thing… We discovered that the corner of the crawl space ISN’T wet because the roof runoff is pretty gnarly right there. It’s wet because the sewer drain pipe came apart at the joint right there – YEARS AGO. Hubs thinks they didn’t wait for the glue to set before filling in the hole and when they tamped the dirt down, it popped apart. Ugh. We’ll be dealing with that today if it ever stops raining.

    Other than that, though, everything is lovely. =o)

      UGH on the drain pipe. What a pain, but at least you’ve found the problem and it’s a fix Hubs can hopefully do. And digging out, sealing, and refilling will all keep the foundation good in the years to come. But yeah, it’s like that awful orange stain they used. *shudder*

      I posted late yesterday. I was hiding. 😆

  2. Yeah, luckily it’s a really small gap, but just enough to be noticeable. And the crawl space isn’t wet wet, just damp. But when stuff like this happens, it just feels way bigger than it is. Ya know?

    OMG, I wish it was stain. It’s latex paint. Over untreated wood. But you’re right that once all this gets done, it will be done right and will all last so much longer.

    Heh. I get the hiding thing.

    • Silver James says:

      Latex? Ugh!!! But that should come off easier than oil-base or stain. I’d think. But then I’m not a painter. Still a major PITA! Which totally should have been on the internet acronym list, if it wasn’t. 😉

Got something to say?
