Oops. My Bad.

*swipes finger along shelf*

Whoa. Look at the dust in here. Um, sorry about that, folks. In addition to having the new babe in the house, I’ve been suffering from a sore throat/achy head & neck for the past few days. So what that means is I’m *really* drained, and I apologize for being absent. Things will get better eventually!

At least, this is my mantra, anyway.

I’ve checked my stats, though, and want to thank those loyal readers who keep comin’ back, regardless. You guys rock! I truly appreciate you!

And here’s a little secret between you and me — I have a release date for Higher Learning! My newest story will be in your hot little hands on October 6, 2010! Yeah!

The cover’s a scorcher, too — just wait ’til you see it. I’ll post it soon!

Anyway. Anybody out there have a chance to read Lovely yet? What did you think? Inquiring minds want to know! :)

Hooray For Holly-Wood!

I am just plowing through DVDs lately. It’s turning out to be the perfect activity for nursing time — I watch 15-20-minute chunks at my computer, and it’s a great way to catch up on all of those good (and definitely not-so-good) movies that passed me by along the way.

If you want to see what I’ve been watching, check out my Books and Movies list (the link is on the sidebar). The reading part has diminished rather abruptly, but the viewing part has jumped.

So between library borrowing and utilizing home video collections of friends and family, I am glutting on movies. And B.E. doesn’t mind — most of the films I’ve been watching are fluffy rom-coms or hokey things that he’s not interested in, so that’s okay, too.

Have *you* watched anything really good lately?

Hey gang –

I’m talking babies over on Shelley Munro’s blog. Come by and say hi! You could win a PDF copy of Lovely!

(Please make me feel a little bit popular. Okay? Pretty please?)

August? Wow…

Is it me, or did July just fly by?

I wanted to say thanks to all of you who’ve been stopping by, checking for new posts and/or updates. This “new baby in the house” thing has seriously played havoc with both my brain and my creative time. The only thing that it’s helped with has been my movie watching.

Hey, it’s one way to help make that fifteen minutes of nursing go by much faster. And this way, I also get to watch (that phrasing makes it sound like a privilege, but in some cases that is NOT true. Yeah, I’m talking to YOU, The Back-Up Plan!) movies that I know B.E. is absolutely not interested in. So that’s okay. I’m going through them pretty quickly, though, so I’m going to have to start borrowing more and/or upping my library usage.

Anyway. That’s my life right now. :P They tell me it’ll get more exciting eventually. I’ll let you know if/when that happens.
