This just in...Yay!!!

Hello all!

Happened to drop by the Romantic Times site to see if the new issue was out. And it is!!!

Here's my review for Fire Goddess in the November 2007 issue:

Inman makes the old plot of a great love between a star and a common laborer new, exciting, fun -- and just plain hot. The misunderstandings are so funny that readers may laugh out loud, while the love scenes are very graphic and sexy. With a bit of mystery thrown into the mix, this read has something for everyone. This is set up to be the first of a series; here's hoping Inman will follow with more of this delightful storyline.

Summary: The four Guardians must each help a woman become a success in the areas of health, home and heart. Wilda picks Kelly, a soap opera diva who is the polar opposite of her character, to find love and happiness. Descending to Earth as her wardrobe consultant, Wilda finds Kelly's career a success, but she has no friends and wants someone to love. Enter Sloan, a builder, brought on to build a beautiful castle set. Sloan is sure Kelly is just like her character and is determined to dislike her. But with Wilda's prodding, they just may find love.

Writerly thoughts

I'm addicted to writing. I've already shared the fact that I'll be finishing one book by the end of this month, editing it, and then editing another one.
BUT...I also have an idea for another book-due by the end of October, and an Amazon Short I want to put out there. And did I mention Wind Goddess and Earth Goddess? I didn't???

I've also been thinking about what I'll be discussing at the Red Dirt Festival in Oklahoma in November. It just keeps going 'round and 'round in my wee little head. What am I going to say to these lovely people when they come to the panel with Me, Merline, and Christine?
Should I tell them that writing on a good day is orgasmic and on a bad day is the fifth level of hell? Should I mention that sanity is no good indicator of anything? Should I just scare the hell right out of them? lmao
Let them find that out for themselves. *grins*

I've never known anyone else but a writer who gets another writer. Period. Spouses and children will sympathize and emphathize...but they just don't get it. God bless them.

Writers are odd creatures. I make no apology for it, myself. Hell, I revel in it. I'm the square peg. And don't you wish you were the square peg, too? rofl
Uh huh.
We have great fun. *wink*

So I suppose I'll do my best to encourage them and tell them to hold onto their dreams.
But leave the sanity at the door. You don't really need it.

Blogger Buddies

I love the people on my sidebar. Adore them beyond words. And I think you should, too. They are creative, witty, and entertaining. So go forth and check them out!
Here's my opinion on a few of them:
Tori is great. She'll read this and probably let it go to her head. *shrug* But oh well. *grins* Tori is a television afficianado. She always has her head wrapped around current events and what's going on NOW! She's outspoken and funny as all hell. Her take on events listed on her blog is NOT TO BE MISSED! Oh...and she shares my Dr. Who affliction.
Rene is a busy mom and wife. Her three darlings are excellent blog fodder, and she is the QUEEN of layouts. Go forth, I'm not playing here. I have layout envy. *grins* Renee is quietly sarcastic and witty as hell.
I love Lyvvie. I swear to God. If I were a hellbitch in running shoes redhead...we could be separated at birth. I don't care what mood I'm in, I laugh every time I visit her blog. It's a gift. And she's got it.
Bryan is a bit of a quiet sort. He's rather deep, I believe. And his snark is finer edged. I adore him for that. He'll lull you into a false sense of security and then zap the hell out of you. I respect that. Go to his blog and then zip from there to some of his photographs!

These are definitely my Top Four. Or maybe I should give it a cute, little name like Fabulous Four or something. Foxy Four? Fearsome Four?
Help a woman out! Better yet...go check out these blogs!!!

Chicken Update

Here's the news:

Oldest Chicken tried out for a play Tuesday. And guess what? She got a part!!! *dancing* I'm sooooooooooooooo proud. Of course, she's a little ham anyway. So should be just wonderful. And if I understood her correctly...the title is "Snow White in the Seventies."
Take a moment amongst yourselves and discuss the obvious ramifications. lmao

Middle Chicken is now scandalized. That would be because I, the Mama, talked about her getting her first boyfriend. Well, apparently, for the first time ever to MY knowledge, the little heifer accessed this blog. Apparently her scream of embarrassment could be heard from miles around. *snickering* It was enough to have classmates running, and she pushing the "X" button with all her might. rofl

Baby Chicken has been a bit difficult of late. It's neither cute nor pleasant when one's eleven year-old daughter channels her snarky thirty-five year-old mother.
Just saying.

That's about it for the little heathens. They've been good for the most part.

I had a lovely, busy day today. McSis had vacation and took Mom and I to Tulsa to visit Incredible Pizza. There was mini golf (got my ass whooped) and bowling (another ass whuppin') and air hockey (do you see where this is going???).
However, there was a small bit of redemption in bowling when I bowled two strikes in the final frame. *pumping fist in air and singing "We are the Champions"*
So. There you have it.

Middle School Dynamic

Hello all!

Took my chickens (and an extra chicken friend) to a middle school dance Friday evening. And yes, it did feel like Sixteen Candles to some extent. There were children from a bunch of area surrounding schools. And they rather kept to their own little cliques. My girls' school had two normal children and then a group of about eight that thought they were too cute and didn't have to listen to anybody. Oh...and they liked to Dirty Dance.
Yeah. At a middle school dance. *eye roll*
It was interesting to sit back and watch the activities. Contrary to earlier threats, I didn't shake my groove thing...though they DID have some great music. If the crowd were a little older, you just never know. *wink*
But the girls seemed to have fun. And that's really all that counts.
And speaking of the chickens...Middle Chicken has a boyfriend. Her FIRST boyfriend. *slightly hyperventilating* Sheesh! Can't believe it. So we'll see how that goes. She's in that giddy stage right now.
And oldest chicken is trying out for a play today! I'm so thrilled! I don't care whether she's the lead or third tree from the right...I'm very proud.

Saturday was shopping. On a Labor Day Weekend. Uh huh. I am way too bright for my own good. lmao
Shipped off middle chickie to her friends house. (The same one that spent the night before at OUR house) and chilled out with other two chickens. Watched some movies. Stuff like that.
Sunday I wrote.
And NOT just a little bit. I'm averaging between 6000-7000 every Sunday when I write. So guess who's going to make their deadline?
Oh YEAH, baby! That would be me!

As for the movies...we got TMNT (still haven't watched), Unaccompanied Minors (didn't want to watch), Wild Hogs, and Disturbia.
Here's the lowdown:
Wild Hogs was mediocre. And even though I adore the cast, it sucked exhaust. On a scale of 1-10...I'd say 2. I did get to see William H. Macy's butt. I suppose that should bring it up to a possible 3. *GRINS*
He's just too talented to be reduced to showing his ass on film, IMO. *eye roll* I just couldn't get into it. Seemed to be spliced together with no real direction.
And now that I've massacred that one...onto Disturbia.

Let me just say, I LOVED this flick!!! Holy shit! I'm not kidding. The story was great. The actors were wonderful. It had humor. It was scary as all hell. I just haven't seen anything like that which has caught my interest in a long time. I think Shia LaBeouf is amazing. Utterly amazing. Not to mention I think he's going to be so damn handsome when he grows into those acting skills he has. Rather reminds me of a cross between Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant. High praise, indeed.
Now that I've gushed like one of my girls...that's that. *grins*
Hope you had a GREAT long weekend!
