Monday. There was a weekend. I remember it. Sort of. Weirdly dressed people came to my door demanding candy. We had just enough. Except Lawyer Guy gave a dollar to the teen-age sibling shepherding the last herd because there was just enough candy left for younger ones. She didn’t seem to mind.
In case y’all haven’t heard, THE DEVIL’S CUT is live on Amazon. And just in case you’ve been living under a rock or something, here’s the blurb. Go forth and buy if you haven’t already. I’ve heard people say it’s a pretty good story.
The Devil’s in the details…
What do two werewolf teens missing in the New Mexico desert, a stolen pouch of Native American fetishes, and a drug lord calling himself El Diablo have in common? Undercover FBI Agent Caleb Jones would sure like to find out. The trail leads to Denver where CSI Adele McCoy is investigating the cases of two diabolically murdered men and the pouch of Native American fetishes discovered at one of the crime scenes. She doesn’t believe in magic, but the whole situation gives her a creepy supernatural vibe she can’t deny.
And the Devil always gets his cut…
When their cases collide, Caleb and Adele are soon running for their lives—and fighting an attraction that threatens to combust. Hot on their trail is Caleb’s best friend, Special Agent Sade Marquis. She’s bound and determined to find the wayward werewolf. Death is a dialogue, love hurts, and you don’t know the measure of a man—or a woman—until it’s time to pay the Devil his due. In this Case from the Shadow’s Edge, it might just be a werewolf and the woman he loves who pay the price.
I spent the weekend working on formatting TDC and DOUBLE CROSS for print. DC is going into the National Readers’ Choice Awards and the Daphne Awards in the Romantic Suspense and Paranormal Romantic Suspense categories respectively. Gotta have print copies for that. And speaking of awards, BLUE MOON won the International Digital awards in Short Paranormal Novel and NIGHT SHIFT placed 3rd in the Erotic Novel category. 😀
This is November. That means National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Since I have a November 30th deadline for RDR#4, this is a Very Good Thing! I have to get back into the Red Dirt mindset. Yippee. That means C&W music on I ❤ Radio.
Haven't been watching much TV because…edits/revisions/formatting/release and it's the World Serious! Seriously!!! As of the hour I'm typing this on Sunday night, Royals and Mets are playing game 5, Royals up 3-1 games in the series. If they win tonight it's over. If not, back to Kansas City for game 6/7 (if necessary). [EDIT: Royals came back in the 9th and tied 2-2, went 12 innings final score 7-2. Royals WIN!!!!] I'm trying to read SIX OF CROWS, of which there's been a lot of hype about. It's a fantasy. It's…slow. The book itself is lush, the prose detailed, the characters interesting, as is the world, but it's….slow. Could be I'm not in the right head space because I keep going back to my comfort reads–books I've already read once, twice, even three times. Yeah, I'm weird like that.
Last night, Lawyer Guy and I both wanted something ooey-gooey and sweet. I made brownies. Only I experimented. Because he has a blood sugar test coming up and he's been good. So I used about 1/2 cup of stevia mixed with 1/2 cup of regular sugar. And I didn't have any Crisco to greased the pan so I used butter. Which then melted over the low end of the brownies where the batter didn't rise so much. They were hot. And chocolaty. And had pecans. It eased the craving. LG wants me to experiment and make "crownies." Just in case you haven't seen the commercial…
So…that's pretty much been my weekend. What's up in your world?
