Writing: As most of you know, the proposal for RDR#4 (working title of LAST COWGIRL STANDING) headed off to Mr. HQEd last week. Now to get started on my next two projects–THE DEVIL’S CUT and MOONSTRUCK: LIES. I need to start multi-tasking ASAP. Plus, I need to work on LCS periodically too because once the proposal is accepted, I have a short trigger deadline on it as well. So, not much time on social media in my immediate future. I think I’m supposed to be sad but I’m not really. I know, my bad.
Reading: I’ve been doing my fair share since Insomnia is visiting. I’d like to kick it’s @$$ to the curb but that’s not happening. Ah well. I burned through Roxie Rivera’s Her Russian Protector series. They’re sexy and despite the fact the Russian mob was operating in Houston, which may or may not be a real thing but it made me go, “Huh?”, they were fun reading. A little gritty, very sexy, and dang those alpha men. *fans face* I also read and thoroughly enjoyed (5 BIG stars worth!) our own B.E. Sanderson’s new UF novel, WISH IN ONE HAND. I got to beta read this book way back when. Enjoyed the heck out of it then and loved it when I got to read the final version. If you’re a fan of Larissa Ione’s Demonica series, I highly recommend HADES, which is part of the 1001 Dark Nights anthology series. I always enjoy touching base in Larissa’s world.
TV: Saw DRACULA UNTOLD Saturday night. OMG! I love this take on the Dracula legend and OMG Luke Evans (who plays Vlad) is yummy awesomesauce. Someone PLEASE tell me there’s a sequel set in modern times in the works because the ending…REINCARNATION, people! And true love!!!! And a very bad guy!!!! So yeah. I really liked it, in case you couldn’t tell.
Stuffs: Lawyer Guy and I are co-teaching an on-line class, Letters of the Law, for the Kiss of Death RWA chapter. It’s open to anyone to take. You can get info HERE if you are interested. The course lasts through the month of September, starting tomorrow, September 1st.
We went shopping for Stormageddon on Saturday. Baseball Boy is coaching a 14 and Under baseball team and LG wanted a batting helmet with a face cage for Stormy. The kid is 17 months old. He has his own glove, balls, batting tee, helmet, and also a deal that blows up with like a basket ball net in the middle of it to catch balls when he throws them. Not that we’re expecting him to play baseball or anything, because The Only was just an NAIA All-American catcher and BB was a conference team first baseman.
And that’s been my life of late. What about y’all? What did you do that was fun this weekend? Read any good books? Seen any good movies?
