Volume 9

A brand new month...

Happy Monday, y’all!

Another week behind us, many more to look forward to. So, I did not finish writing Volume 6 last week, but I’m close. Really close, so don’t fret. That’s for me, by the way. I tend to panic when I miss a deadline I’ve set for myself. It wasn’t a hard deadline. I’ve got time, but when it comes to this book, I want to be ahead of the game. These guys (and girl) are always on my mind. I enjoy writing their story. 

When I’m not writing this week, I’ve got a couple of appointments to take care of. Hennessy has his 8-week check-up, which I’m looking forward to because he is doing so well. I am excited for him to get back to his previous exercise routine, but not until the vet gives me the go-ahead. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Did you know there’s one less hour this week? At least for those of us who experience the thrill that is daylight saving time. To be honest, it’s ridiculous. It throws off my sleep patterns. I am very routine in that I go to bed early so I can get up early. For me, the earlier I can get up, the better because that is when I write best. Before the stresses of the day have time to interfere. The little blip of adding an hour or taking it away always throws me off for a few weeks.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for now. 

Much Love!


Epic Cuteness… a.k.a. my pups

This is Hennessy's daytime nap spot. Right outside my office, he can easily keep an eye on me when he needs to.

Photos from my week…

I had to take a pic. That's coffee, y'all.

A day in the life of the hubby…

I love when he sends me pics of himself during the day

What I'm writing...

I’m working on Primal Instincts Volume 6. Since there are 9 volumes, that means I’m past the midway point. There is a lot left to go, but now we’re heading toward the happily ever after. However, there are still quite a few obstacles they have to overcome.

What I'm reading...

I have been binge-reading CD Reiss for quite a while now. At least two months. With each book I finish, I want more. I just started reading the Forbidden series. This one is definitely dark but so far so good.

What I'm watching...

The Mentalist

I’ve watched this entire series once before, but now I’m going for round 2 because … well, Simon Baker’s smile, of course. It wasn’t at all what I expected. The description makes it sound dark, but while it can be at times, there’s a lot of humor and a great cast of characters.

A famous "psychic" outs himself as a fake, and starts working as a consultant for the California Bureau of Investigation so he can find "Red John", the madman who killed his wife and daughter.
