Sunday Update - Week 10

Sorry I'm late.  I woke up obscenely early and then went back to bed.  I'm on my first cup of coffee after the second sleep now. 

Well, In Deep Wish is up for pre-order at pretty much everywhere - Amazon, B&N, Kobo, and Apple.  The links are here.  Huge thanks to the people who've already pre-ordered.  You rock.

Wish in One Hand is on sale for 99 cents (or whatever the equivalent would be in your native land).  Also at wherever you buy books.  The links are also there, but at the bottom of the page.  So you can read the first one before the second one arrives on your ereader. 

Right now, I'm taking some time off from writing or editing (can't ever take off from marketing), and just reading other people's books.  I finally inhaled my BFF JB Lynn's latest - The Hitwoman and The Chubby Cherub.  Man, she delivers.  I loved it.  At the moment, I'm about 1/3 of the way through Compulsion by Allison Brennan.  Totally awesome stuff.  Next up will be either an urban fantasy I picked up on a whim or an urban fantasy I've been meaning to read for years. 

THEN I'll get back to work on Up Wish Creek.  It's not due out until August, but I have until the 19th before my May release comes back from A.W.E. and I can't just do nothing.  I don't have the time for lengthy periods of nothing anymore.

On the 'do something active every day' front, day 60 was Friday.  I missed five days out of the 2nd 30 day period, so not bad.  (Like 9 days total out of 60.)  I'm still hanging with this longer than I've hung with anything else, so it's a win.  I was at the doctor on Tuesday for a shot and made them weigh me.  By their scale, there's a 2 lb difference from what my scale said thirty days ago.  2+ but I'm not freaking or anything.  Like I said before, I'm not in this to drop weight, I'm in this to be more active and I'm winning there.  If you want to point to anything for those 2 lbs, though, point to hormones and point to Easter candy.  Robins Eggs are my downfall.  And Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs.  Easter kills me every time.  I have no willpower against those things. 

Spring is sproinging all over the place here in the Ozarks.  My bulbs are all coming up.  My crocuses and my hyacinths are blooming.  My tulips have buds.  My lilac bush has its first little green leaves.  The robins are singing in the trees.  The mourning doves are hoo-hooing all over.  Bitch squirrel is desperately trying to gain access to her preferred nursery - which is to say inside our eaves. The Sanderson Home for Unwed Squirrel Mothers is CLOSED.  Ya know, I wouldn't really care if she was in there except she is not housebroken, and ewww. Plus, she and her brats chew on everything up in there. 

What's up in your world?


  1. LOL re: Mama Squirrel! She is a persistent little pest.

    I can't wait to read Up Wish Creek! I loved In Deep Wish. I need to go write some reviews.

    I finished (loosely, I'm not thrilled with them) 28 pages this week. And I got a sewing bug to work on a corset pattern. Unfortunately, my sewing room has turned into a storage room, and every time I go in there to uncover my sewing machine, I decide I really ought to be WRITING! :-)

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed In Deep Wish, Deb! Up Wish Creek is slated for August. The next book on the schedule is Fertile Ground, though - SCIU #2 (in the same world as Dying Embers). That's May's release. Anyway, thanks for the reviews!

      Yay for finishing pages even if you aren't thrilled with them. You can fix them into something awesome later. You'll get back to sewing, but yay for the writing! =o)

  2. I'm a newcomer to Reece's cups but oh my lord I just love them.

    Instead of housework, I spent the weekend knitting a blanket for Project Linus UK, and I'm dead chuffed with the way it turned out. I haven't done much knitting in the past 10 years, so I'm glad I haven't lost the skill.

    Mother's Day yesterday, so spent a nice day with No. 1 son and had a lovely chat with No. 2 son. Nice!

    1. Happy Mother's Day, Fran! I'm so glad you had a lovely day and got to chat with your sons.

      I sometimes forget that everything we have here isn't available over there and vice versa. I'm glad you found Reese's. They're awesome.

      Yay for knitting! I'm so glad your blanket turned out well. =o)
