Monday Musings in June

When I get caught up in finishing off one of my self-pubbed books, I tend to forget which day of the week it is so the meme I used today is very apropos. The good news is, NIGHT FIRE is live on Amazon and as all the other Nightrider books had come off Kindle Unlimited, I put them all back on. In late August, all the books come off at the same time and I’ll probably go wide distribution with them. A lot will depend on royalty received between then and now. It’s always a tightrope as to whether to go wide, loosing the pages-read funds. My wide sales aren’t really as good as what I make on Amazon. *shrug* This is one reason I’m slowly doing the compendium volumes of the Moonstruck books. I can take those wide while leaving the individual novellas, under different ISBN numbers, enrolled in KU.

Okay, enough business. Reading…or in my case lately, listening. I paused in my re-listen of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series because two books I’ve been waiting for both released on the last day of May. Figures, right? 😆 Anyway, I did a quick listen to Ilona Andrews’ BURN FOR ME then rolled over to WHITE HOT, book 2 in the Hidden Legacy series. The 2nd book was total awesomesauce! Then it was Christine Feehan’s SHADOW RIDER listen as a refresher and now I’m listening to SHADOW REAPER. I’m liking it better the first one. There are a few irritations both books share, but the stories and characters are interesting enough to keep me from more than the occasional roll of eyes. Next up? Back to the Psy-Changelings because SILVER SILENCE comes out later this month. Yay!

TV/Sports: Because here lately, they are one and the same. Regular TV hasn’t much held my attention and even when I sort through what I have on the DVR? Yeah…not even NCIS calls to me. This makes me have a big ol’ sad, let me tell you! But in the long run, that’s okay. I’ve always been a reader and lived in my head/imagination so as long as I have books, I’m happy. My Cards are running hot and cold which makes me have a sad. I’ve also been glued to the Women’s College World Series. The finals are today. It’s a battle between top-seeded Florida and defending national champs, #10 Oklahoma. Go Big Red!

Writing swings back to contemporary this week. I’m stepping out of the dark with my Wolves and heading to Nashville to work on the misadventures of Tucker and Zoe. It’s kind of a madcap adventure for our two mismatched lovers. Upcoming projects include another book in Susan Stoker’s Special Forces world and Roman’s story this fall.

That’s it for my round-up. What’ about y’all? How was your weekend? What’s on tap for your week?

    Agreed on Feehan’s book. But still waiting on the Russian’s story, particulatly as you made him almost human in your recent book. Just can’t wait!

      😆 The Russian is something of an enigma. He has a soft spot for hurting Wolves and small children, but he is a Dominant and Alpha so their isn’t much back-up in him. And his backstory? Yeah…he’s an enigma. 😉

  2. Night Fire is made of awesome. Jus’ sayin’. I totally inhaled it yesterday. Loved Smoke and Leigh. Yep, sports. That’s something we can watch without major irritation. (I mean other than, ‘OMG, he walked another one :facepalm:’ LOL) We also discovered two new channels – AWE and OAN. AWE is for rich people – mansions, yachts, island retreats. Their tagline is ‘A wealth of entertainment’. OAN is a new news channel – One America News Network. All news, all the time with no spin and no hype. Very refreshing. I think the two channels might be affiliated with each other, but I’m not sure.

    Other than that, we did yardwork and I read. Your book and a suspense called Brain Dead, which was also awesome. No fishing because weather and weekenders. And I got an adequate night’s sleep last night for the first time in weeks. The secret I think was moving the clocks so I can’t see them when I’m in bed. Hubs slept better, too. Huzzah. Which is good because I was contemplating buying some over the counter sleep aids, it’s gotten so bad. One down. I’m hoping to turn that into a streak. LOL

      Crossing fingers on the sleep thing. I know that feeling well too well. And thanks on NIGHT FIRE. I have so much to do and I’m just…brain dead. I know what I need to do. I’m actually inspired, but actually sitting down and doing it? Yeah…that’s not happening. I need to just “ger ‘er done!”
