You know, I realized something the other day. I am so over vampires. Pretty much over werewolves, too, except for a specific author. Still okay with other paranormals, though. It's just when I see 'vampires' in the detail for a book, I keep scrolling. Meh. I guess they're okay as a tertiary character - vampires make an appearance in Wish Hits the Fan, for instance, but they are only present because reasons. And none of them are core characters or even minor characters with a chance at their own story. I thought about doing a side story with the Rusalka, but never with the vamps.
You know how sometimes it seems like as soon as you buy something, you see it on sale somewhere? I think it's working in my favor right now. It seems like as soon as I have a a Kindle Countdown Deal set up for one of my books, someone buys a copy at full price. I feel bad for that person, whoever they are. The universe is cruel sometimes.
I can't believe it's Thursday already. Not sure where the rest of the week went.
I bought some votive candles the other day in a few nice scents - hazelnut, vanilla, and a blue one I can't figure out. They don't last very long, but they were cheap. A side-happy about them is the cupboard where I keep them smells lovely right now.
Tick season has arrived. I found one when I was cleaning leaves out of the gardens. Ticks love leaf litter, doncha know. Anyway, I saw it crawling along a dead leaf, so I got it and squashed it. It made me sad - seeing it, not killing it - because it means my time in the woods is drawing to a close until autumn. =o(
Which reminds me, I need to order more pesticide so Hubs can spray the yard. Tick-mageddon 2019. Yay.
Speaking of ticks, we had a possum in the yard the other day. Yay! Possums eat tons of ticks. So do turkeys, and we're seeing a bunch of those. Turkey lovin' is in the air once more. The main rafter of about 15 hens is back and the two dominant toms are following them everywhere - all puffed up and in the mood for romance. Too bad for them the girls aren't quite ready for romance yet.
Okay, that's enough out of me this morning. You got anything to share?
