Middle Monday of May

Okay, this pup just makes me laugh, no matter what his message is. May is half over. How did that happen? Here’s a recap of what’s going on in my neck of the woods.

Writing: Real Life™ threw some curveballs at me. As a result, I’m a bit behind on progress on NIGHT FIRE. I’ve hit a groove the past couple of days so I hope I can still get it released this month. I’ll also have some Red Dirt writing to do betwixt and between. I got a sneak peek at my Christmas book (releasing in October)–THE COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS PROPOSITION. Y’all….!!!!! I can’t wait until I get permission to unveil it! I need to find someplace with does like a puzzle picture where I can show a piece at a time. I’ll get right on that. *snort*

Sports: So…my Cardinals are in first place in the NL Central Division. Woot. Baseball has been fun to watch this past week. And the Women’s College World Series starts soon. Regionals and super-regionals and then the top 8. I’m hoping the OSU Cowgirls make it in. The last time I checked, their RPI was #37 so they should. As of typing this (last evening), the selection show on ESPN was still a couple of hours away. Since I was awake at 4 on Saturday and 5 yesterday, I’m getting this sucker preloaded and them I’m headed to bed, so just keep in mind, this was all stated last night. 😆 Are you as confused as I am? 😉

Reading: Contest reads are over. I had several really good reads and I’ll be happy to share them in passing come late summer after winners are announced. I also listened to the audio of Anne McCaffrey’s DRAGONFLIGHT. I loved the series originally and I have most of the books in hardback. But dude, I’m tellin’ you! The narrator was totally old school. I found myself laughing at him at inappropriate times. Still, it was on a daily deal so cheap and I’m leaning more toward audio books until my eyes get fixed and it was fun to listen to. Not sure what I’ll crack next. I’m looking forward to Iona Andrews WHITE HEAT (Hidden Legacy #2) and Christine Feehan’s SHADOW REAPER (Shadow Riders #2), both out the end of the month. Also waiting for SILVER SILENCE, coming mid-June in Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling world. Seems to me, there’s another book or two I’ve preordered but can’t think of them off the top of my head and I’m too lazy to go to Amazon to check. 😆

And…that’s about all the news that’s fit to share. OH! I forgot! I talked about this on my author page on FB so I’ll mention it here, just in case anyone is interested. After (and around) my current deadline schedule, I plan on creating at least 3 serial novels, each one about a different set of Wolves. The overall series name is either Moonstruck Mafia or Moonstruck Mob. The first serialization is set in Boston and is about the Irish mob–all of them Wolves. Rather than individual books about each couple, there’s on-going story lines with each serial entry short story/short novella length and selling for $.99. They’ll probably come out a week apart, maybe every few days. Not sure. It means writing the whole thing so each “chapter” can be released in a timely fashion. We’ll see how time and inspiration works. If I do it, it will probably be released wide, and won’t be placed in Kindle Unlimited.

Now that’s it for me. How about y’all? What’s going on in your neck of the internet woods?

  1. You amaze me. All the stuff you’re working on already, plus life stuff, and now you have something new, too? And you still have time for reading and baseball? Girlfriend, you are a rockstar.

    My neck of the woods? Fishing, reading, cleaning… Watching the boobtube. The Players Championship was fun to watch yesterday. AMC had a natural disaster movie marathon Saturday, so I watched bits of The Poseidon Adventure, Volcano, and Twister (seen them all many times, so I wasn’t watching that hard). Right now, I’m reading No One Lives Twice (Lexi Carmichael #1) by Julie Moffett. So far, it’s pretty fun. No sure if they have them on audio.

      I tend to watch baseball and read/listen at the same time. And the audio books are great while I’m doing house/errand stuffs. Gives me chance to stay up with my Goodreads challenge numbers. 🙂 And there’s no telling when I’ll actually move on to the mob Wolves. They’re in the back of my brain poking at me. 😆 Volcano? Was that the one with Tommy Lee Jones? With downtown LA getting fried? That was a good one!

Got something to say?
