Goodbye Year of Detox. Hello Year of Habit.

2017 wasn't bad. It was actually a pretty good year, though it started rather rough. In February I learned I needed a pacemaker, and that mentally rocked me. But after I got my robot in April, most of my anxiety issues have disappeared. In other words, the pacemaker...

My Year in Books (2017)

I love the year end summary Goodreads gives its readers (you can view mine here). It always surprises me to see how long ago I read a book, or how many pages I read in a year, or how few books I got around to reading. Last year, I read 21 books. Not great, but...

A Kindle Clean Out Win!

Why did I put off reading this book for so long! It's been on my Kindle since it's Bookbub ad, which was a million months ago. I just never felt like I was in the mood for a Young Adult novel. A Young Adult novel. After reading this book, I had to jump...

Kindle Clean Up #1

I've been in the mood to read lately, but am at a total loss as to what book to pick up. I'm not sure what my mood is, and every new book online seems just like another. So I decided to read some of the novels that have been sitting on my Kindle for a while. I'm...

Spreadsheet Guy and the Secret Coffee Club

A day dedicated to coffee? Yes, please! It's hard to believe that I once turned up my nose at coffee. Always loved the way it smelled, but despised the way it tasted. Until Spreadsheet Guy stumbled upon the Secret Coffee Club. It was at his old work place, a former...

One of my few auto-buy authors

I know I'm a sci-fi and fantasy romance author, but I also read a wee bit of historical romance on occasion. One of those occasions is when Joanna Bourne releases a new book. Joanna Bourne. Man! I don't know whether to love her or hate her. Okay. I do know. I love...

Progress

It's been a month since my pacemaker surgery, and I finally feel like I'm getting things under control. Most days, I've been writing first thing. This is huge because I've barely written at all these last two months. I have an extreme amount of mental clutter. Much of...

You Need to Watch M. Night Shyamalan’s New Movie, Split

Raise your hand if you've heard of this movie? I hadn't until two weeks ago. A Facebook friend mentioned how good it was (thanks Jen!), so Spreadsheet Guy and I decided to watch it. We watched the trailer first, and I have to say, that made me almost not want to watch...

Write a Review Wednesday, on a Thursday (again!): Evolution, Beginnings

It's not completely my fault. I was at the doctor on Tuesday for THREE hours waiting to get an xray of my right rib cage, which hurts like HELL every time I cough. (Don't even ask about sneezing. I've come close to crying.) The rib pain started almost two days after...

WARW (on a Thursday): A Breath of Fire

I finally finished A Breath of Fire. The book has been out for around three months. It took me a few weeks to get started reading it, but I was immediately hooked. I love this book just as much as the first one, A Promise of Fire. The book picks up soon after the...

On Cokes and Cars and Chucking It

If you're born in the south, or at least in Texas, there's a good chance you refer to any can of soda as a coke. If we're at a restaurant and I tell Spreadsheet Guy to order me a coke, he knows I don't mean Coke. I hate straight-up Coke. When I say coke, it means Diet...

An Apology and a Beginning

Today I looked up the date that I published Shades of Honor. I couldn't quite remember when it was, but I was still shocked that it's almost been two years. Two years! It felt like one, and it's just crazy that it's taking me so long to write the third anomaly novel....

Want to know what Rykus smells like?

I know. That's, like, the weirdest headline ever, right? But I'm serious! I've been playing around with essential oils for almost a year (it was part of my need-to-get-healthier kick). I recently bought Vetiver because I read somewhere that it can help with focus, and...
