Panic. That’s the mood at the moment. And that over there? That meme? Yeah, That’s exactly how I feel with every new release but especially with this one. The Nightriders is such a departure for me–first person POV, dark and dirty, gritty, violent. Don’t get me wrong. The F-bomb and I are BFFs so it isn’t that. It’s the other stuff–the violence, the sexxor-sexy times. We’ll see if my readers go for it. We’ll see if it picks up a wider audience. I shouldn’t worry about it but this? Yeah, I’m worried and I’m not really sure why. So, here’s the hard sell: GO BUY MY BOOK! ‘Cause I don’t want to live in a van down by the river! That would be like living a Rob Lowe Direct TV commercial. I just like my comfy house. Here’s the AMAZON LINK, plus go mark it WANT TO READ on Goodreads so it shows up in your timeline and people will see it. *nods*
Anyway, on to the next project, DOUBLE CROSS in the Hard Target series. This is Master Chief Duke Reagan’s story. He’s not very happy with me–not because I put him on hold to write NIGHT SHIFT, but because he doesn’t like the opening of his story. He’s a SEAL team leader. He HATES the beginning. But sometimes, you have to deal with the pain before you get to the HEA. Right? I’ve also got THE DEVIL’S CUT on tap, too. As things hit me, I’m working it it sort of simultaneously. The Penumbra peeps are jabbering and I’d be foolish not to listen.
In other writing news, THE COWGIRL’S LITTLE SECRET garnered a 4 star (out of 4.5) review from RT Book Reviews Magazine.
The weekend was fun. We had Stormageddon (Sprout’s new moniker) for six hours. There’s video on my FB page–the personal, not the author. There are new NIGHT SHIFT memes on my FB author page. Go check them out. I’ll be adding one a day all this week. Anyway, we gave him a metal coffee can, a plastic container, and a wooden spoon to play with. Forget that big tub of toys. He had a ball banging away. Yes, he’s a cutie pie. Yes, I love him to pieces. Yes, I’m glad I can send him home with Only! 😆
Sunday, I played graphic artist and made up the memes I’m sharing on FB. I’m also considering adding a meme page here. What do y’all think? Would you go check out the memes I’ve made for my books if I had a dedicated page? Probably under [Stuff and Nonsense] – which never gets updated. 🙄 I also watched Cardinals baseball, checked out “Messengers” on the CW–I’d taped the episodes. Interesting. Angelic messengers, Satan, and good vs. evil. Unusual cast of characters. I’ll stick with it awhile. I also need to catch up with the DVR’d episodes of the series, “Dig.” It’s about an archaeological dig in Israel. It looked intriguing but I haven’t taken time to watch it. I’ll do a marathon at some point. 😆
Reading–still doing the RITA thing. Dang. It’s going to be hard to judge this category. Every book I’ve read so far should be a finalist and I have to rank them. Argh! In between, I’m catching up on some paranormal reading. Nothing that really stands out–good or bad. Mostly entertaining but nothing I’d recommend highly.
So, plans for this week. Writing. Staying current with social media. Writing. Laundry. Writing. Did I mention I have a lot of writing to do? 😆 My life is so predictable and boring. What about y’all? Fun weekend? Good TV or movies? Good books? Good writing? Distract me! Because…who wants to think about a team of sexy Navy SEALs?
