So, I’m full of all sorts of Random Stuff™. In no particular order:
REDEEMED BY THE COWGIRL is a finalist in OKRWA’s National Readers Choice Awards. Woot-woot! This is one of my favorite books. I made myself laugh more than a few times and at two seperate points, I had to stop writing/reading/editing so I could sob a little. I’m glad that “real” readers liked it too.
LUCIFER has been cancelled by Fox. The season finale is tonight and there won’t be any resolution. This bums me out tremendously. I can only hope that Amazon, Netflix, or Hulu picks it up. If not, I’ll be totally pissed at Fox, on the entertainment side at least. Since Fox Sports covers my St. Louis Cards, I can’t be mad at the whole outfit.
LIVE PD makes me shake my head. A lot. This past weekend, I loved the “Pink Ladies” in Slidell, Louisiana, riding their bicycles all lit up with LED lights on the wheels. They were celebrating a birthday by riding from the party site to a “margarita bar.” The cop who “pulled” them over posed for pictures and then gave them an escort. Made me smile. Then there were all the people who copped attitudes, chasing the cock (as in game rooster), and a dog that led them on a chase that lasted for a couple of miles, with commentary by the cop. The lab pup led them back to his home at a junkyard.
My OSU Cowgirls made the NCAA D1 Softball Tournament. They’re the #2 seed in the Fayetteville regional with #1 seed Arkansas, #3 seed Wichita State, and #4 seed DePaul. OU is hosting their regional as #1 seed and #4 national rank, #2 seed Tulsa, #3 seed Missouri, and #4 seed Boston. Yay for softball. The Cowboys should be in the Baseball tournament but teams won’t be announced until the end of May.
I’m enjoying my reread/re-listen of Joanna Wylde’s Reapers/Silver Bastards series. I also discovered that Ilona Andrews is going to treat fans of her Hidden Legacy series to a novella, releasing this fall. The subject? Navada and Mad’s wedding. I. Can’t. Wait. I one-clicked that puppy so fast I sprained my finger! 😉 I keep waiting for new books to read but the ones I want are all spaced out over the next six months. Of course, that gives me time to reread/re-listen to all the books in those series will give me fodder for both Kindle and Audible.
Not to get political, but…
I wish California would decide to secede from the Union. Get ride of presidential birthdays and replace one or both with a Communist/Socialist holiday? What’s up with that?
We should be worried about the current crop of college students. The stuff they spout? But then I remember that they are being spoon-fed pablum and have never been taught to think for themselves. By and large they’ll be followers and the smart ones who think will be leaders. I look at them and have hope.
I watch the news and just shake my head, much like I do when I’m watching the stupid people on LIVE PD. I just…there are no words.
And on that note, I’ve run out of words. Well, at least words for this post. I have ideas for Digger’s story. I think Noni is going to visit her “Roo.” 😉 What’s up in your corner of the world?
