There was a weekend. I know this because I had an OKRWA meeting and it’s only on Saturdays. And there was baseball. Of the 14U variety. I even ended up keeping score during Sunday morning’s game when the catcher’s mom/scorekeeper got dirt (love that Oklahoma wind–NOT!) in her eyes. It was fun. At OKRWA, I read the entries for our Halloween Writing Challenge. Mine didn’t win. If you ask nicely, maybe I’ll post it tomorrow as a Tuesday Tidbit. 😉 Not a tease because it’s not a book, simply a very short story.
Sports: OSU had the day off. OU beat up Kansas State. And I shouldn’t have been rooting for Michigan. I think I jinxed them. Sorry, B.E. 😦 Baseball, the Cubs aren’t doing too good against the hated Mets. Royals are up 2-0 over the Bluejays. ‘Nuff said ’bout that.
Writing: THE DEVIL’S CUT came out about 71K. Longer than I anticipated. It’s out with my CP and my betas. I admit I’m sweating this one a bit. Still not sure I got the opening right. We’ll see what they say. I’m also waiting on the cover. I’ll do a reveal as soon as I have it in my hot, little hands. Spent a few days last week dickering over the title for RDR#3. At the moment, it looks like it will be THE BOSS AND HIS COWGIRL. It’s Harlequin category, being in the Desire line. I can live with it. It will release Summer of 2016 but I don’t have an exact date yet. Will pass it along as soon as I know. I’ve got to do some formatting on TDC while I’m waiting on edits and then I’m diving into RDR#4, which will hopefully be easier to title. Working title is LAST COWGIRL STANDING. I do have a backup but it’s a secret. *shhhhh* #4 is more lighthearted and will be fun to finish.
Reading: I’m still in a slump, mostly. Rereading bits and pieces of both of Nalini Singh’s series–Guildhunter/Archangle and the Psi/Changlings. I made myself stop a full reread of Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels. And no, Ev, no spoilers. Just…listen faster! 😆 New books–DRAGOS GOES TO WASHINGTON. Thea Harrison has written a fun one. Big changes coming for Dragos and Pia. Currently reading A KISS BEFORE THE APOCALYPSE (Remy Chandler #1) by Thomas E. Sniegoski. Remy is a Boston PI who also happens to be an angel. It’s…interesting. Evidently, there are quite a few books in the series and luckily, my library system carries them. Not sure I’ll keep going after the first but so far, so good. Oh, I’m at 199 books on my Goodreads challenge, which was originally 200. I’ve upped it to 210 and will likely up it again.
TV: Uhm…I’m way behind on the DVR. New shows still in the mix: “Code Black,” “Blindspot,” (though I’m behind on it), and “The Player.” I also need to catch up on “The Bastard Executioner.” I have to be in the right headspace to watch it.
Aaannnndddd….that’s about it from here. Who are you rooting for, writing about, or reading?
