What the Heck Wednesday?

Hello, Blog Peeps!

I feel like I've been hungover for days. Although that's true for this past Saturday, (wedding), it's not true for the rest.

PSA: When the groom's father offers you a drink at the after-wedding party, just say no. Cause, if you're polite and say yes, you get a solo cup full of flavored vodka on ice and you can't function as a human being the next day.

I think I'm just rundown and need some time to recoup. Oh wait, I'm a mom. Scratch that.

I want to thank all of you that helped me spread the word about Already Home being back out in the world.

I really appreciate it.

I saw this on Twitter the other day and I know most of us can appreciate it. It said, How authors should handle bad reviews.

Anyone see this?





Gillian Anderson tweeted it on June 8th with the words: And so it begins...

Vincent Bugliosi passed away. He wrote a few of my favorite true-crime books including Till Death Us Do Part, And the Sea Will Tell, and of course, Helter Skelter. If you haven't read his work, head to the library!

I'm kinda working on two projects.

Working a bit on editing my original manuscript. The one that started it all because I actually finished it. The Riley and Colin story. I thought I would spruce it up and send it back out to the world. Worth a shot, right?


And, working a bit on book 3. I think I know what one of the problems are. My hero needs to be much more Alpha. I think I was writing him as the good guy because he's former military and a cop, but good guys are boring. :)

I'll leave you with some funnies from FB.

  1. The Captain Jack pic is absolutely how we should handle those bad reviews. Love the eCards. Especially that second one. I experience that all of the time.

    Hope you're feeling better soon!

    (Sorry I missed the Almost Home re-release. *hangs head in shame*)

  3. That's why I say no to anything that's not wine or beer.
    I know some people who fit that first funny.
    Now, work on making your hero less boring!

  6. It was my pleasure to have your book on my blog last Friday. I've stayed away from flavored vodka since St. Patrick's Day over thirty years ago.

    3. I'm so totally stoked about The X-Files' return. Do you watch NBC's "Hannibal?" Anderson's FABULOUS as Lecter's therapist/companion/lover?
