Monday Talking Points and Stuff

Monday coffeeI have no time to fool around, Monday! I will not let you get me down. *nods*

So, I did two podcasts when I was in San Diego for The Disaster Podcast. Fun times but OMG it’s been too long since I did “free-style” speaking. The “uhs” and “ands” had me Gibbs Slapping myself continuously as I listened. 😆 If you’re curious about my take on the Murrah Building/Oklahoma City Bombing, check out the PODCAST HERE. There will be a second one in a week or so about my experiences with the F7 tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma.

My Cardinals sucked this weekend. I haz a very large sad over it. I couldn’t watch the game yesterday. It was just…sad. 😥 I keep telling myself it’s a rebuilding year, especially with all the injuries to the starting players but…yeah. :/

So, I read a lot, due to many sales and Kindle Unlimited. Three books, and started a fourth. THE DEVIL’S LADY, an old school medieval romance. It was nostalgic and fun and I liked the characters, despite their predictability. Read a new-to-me author, Suzanne Johnson. The first book in her Fae Hunters series is free on Kindle Unlimited. It’s the first in the series so I hope the author publishes the second one in a hurry. Thoroughly enjoyed it because basically, the Wild Hunt and its Captain in located in New Orleans to hunt down Fae who’ve crossed between the realms without royal permission. Can you say “CATNIP!!!” Plus, it was well-written and I’m totally fangirling over Falconer/Faulkner. *swoon* And finally, Jayne Castle’s latest Harmony book, ILLUSION TOWN. I’m a huge fan of her various series all relating to the Arcane Society. Fun times! The book I’m starting is the latest in Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changling series, ALLEGIANCE OF HONOR. I’m finishing up the book right before it on audio, to refresh my memory of the events leading up to this book.

Didn’t watch much TV except I discovered a new-to-me show on HGTV–Vintage Flip. A couple in southern California buy vintage homes, restore them, and then flip them. Pretty cool stuffs.

So, that’s about it. Lawyer Guy and I celebrated a low-key 33rd anniversary. He brainstormed a new Nightrider book with me while we made a morning road trip in the rain. I laughed for like ten minutes. It will be AWESOME! An unnamed (because I haven’t decided who yet) Nightrider wins a mail-order bride¹ in a poker game. You do the imagining. 😀 Got home in time for a late lunch with Only, BB, and Stormy at our favorite Mexican place and then we had dinner out at a local sports bar, wherein we enjoyed good food but watched the Cards lose. Still, it was a nice day with my best friend and other half.

What all did you fine people get up to over the weekend? Reading? Writing? Movies? Fishing? 😉

¹It’s an arranged marriage between two Irish Traveler clans and she turns out to be the Nightrider’s mate. *bwahahahahahaha*

  1. Yay for a lovely anniversary and spending time with your sweetest. Can’t wait to read the book you two brainstormed. Whoa, girlfriend, you are a reading machine. Sorry about your Cards. I’m not ready for podcasts yet this morning. Need more coffee.

    As a matter of fact, I did go fishing. LOL And I totally lazed out on work yesterday. We’ve been watching the Olympics. Which really isn’t an excuse for not working. But ‘Lympics! I need to hit the bank and Wallyworld this morning. And then I have to chain myself to this desk so I can meet my self-imposed deadline. Ugh.

    • Silver James says:

      Yeah. Deadlines. Ugh. I haz them too. I basically blew off the weekend where work is concerned. I’m looking forward to the “gypsy” book, too. 😀

      Knew you’d gone fishing and thank goodness the USA has retaken the medal lead. Was gettin’ a little worried. Saw the French gymnast. *shudder* Get another cup and get to Wallyworld.

    I was in a reading slump this weekend until I finally decided to DNF the book I was trying to read for review. Seriously if at 51% I still am not buying the romance, I’m not going to keep reading. Finally started reading Fatal Affair by Marie Force and was completely hooked from page 1. Why did I wait so long to start this series?!?! Also listening to Allegiance of Honor. I read it before release, but love the audiobooks too.

    Glad y’all had a great anniversary weekend. Sorry about your Cards. They were my Pawpaw’s favorite team, so I always keep up with them during the season.

    • Silver James says:

      Now I’m totally curious about your DNF. I’m about halfway through SHARDS OF HOPE so next up is ALLEGIANCE OF HONOR. Yay! I’ve never read Marie. The last thing I need is another must-read series. 😆

      • Liza says:

        The review is up on my blog today…just saying. I usually don’t post too many DNF reviews, but I got the book from the publisher and didn’t feel right about not posting the review, even if it wasn’t glowing. I did wait until the book had been out almost a week before publishing my review.

        • Silver James says:

          I just read your post on my blog roll. I’m a little slow getting around all my social media stops today. 😆 Yeah…that’s too bad but I understand. I used to never DNF a book. Now? I only have limited time to read and if the book isn’t working, I skip to the last chapter so I can at least see how it ended. Then I move on.

Got something to say?
