Echo

I don't even know if anyone out there still has this blog addy or not, so I may just be wasting a whole lot of time even posting this. I'm having difficulties with the server that I had the wordpress blog on. I miss my blog. Who do you use as your domain keepers/website hosts?

Hair today, gone tomorrow....

I can't stand my hair. It's lifeless and for some unknown reason is deciding to turn red. Age? Have I mentioned they called my grandfather "Red" ? Apparently, the older I get, his genetics are showing up in my hair folicles.

I have to take my mom to physical therapy this afternoon. Where it is, there are three beauty places/spa's. My favorite is over there, so that's where I'll be headed once I get her settled in. It occured to me, one of the things stopping me from going to the local bookstores is my appearance. I don't think it'd be wise to show up in a baseball cap proclaiming "I'm a new romance author." I think a short and sexy cut--something easy for this fine-haired girl to fix and style is just what the DR. ordered.

There's a woman whose son plays baseball with mine. She's become my new PR person. Hi, Beth! She has the greatest hair!

I need a pick-me-up. I need rid of this hair. It's shorter on the one side because the last person who cut it did it with a hack-saw. Okay, so she really didn't have a saw...I wish Tory from this next book coming in the fall was real enough to jump out of the book and give me the haircut I deserve. But, she's only in my head and no way would she tell me to pick up scissors to walk me through it. '-)

Anyone else have trouble with their hair?

Website Woes

I had no idea that changing domains was going to be such a damned nightmare. This is why I should've went with someone who knew what they were doing, paid the extra money and was just done with it. Now, I currently have no website and am the owner of two domains in which I can't so squat with. I'm worried I'm going to be out all this money and nothing to show for it and have to start again from square one.

Yes, it's one of those days. I don't know why this isn't working. Perhaps Mercury is in retrograde. I'm too afraid to look.

I was really looking forward to switching to Wordpress and having it on my site...at this point, I just want my site back. *sobs*

Meddling landladies, fashion-tortured canines, psychotic best friends - is that what it takes to bring two love-jaded people together, or will they be killed with good intentions?

Allison Leavitt is great at living in a make-believe world - she'd created one in her best-selling mystery novels, home of her fantasy man, a hard-nosed detective with a granite-encrusted heart. It's taken years for an artist to finally capture his image, the one she's lived with in her head for far too long. Imagine her shock when she discovers him standing in her living room!

When the shock fades, one question remains: now that she's found him, what is she going to do about making fantasy reality?

Displaced Los Angeles detective Jay Cantrall isn't happy with his Spokane, Washington assignment, and even more disgruntled with his whacked-out apartment house. The landlady runs around in muumuus whispering sweet nothings to her bizarre canine companion, who hates Jay but has romantic tendencies toward his leg. One tenant thinks nothing of staging mock murders, another is a man-shark, and his next-door neighbor, Allison, although incredibly delectable, seems to be incapable of little more than fish imitations.

Besides, he learned his lesson where women are concerned: nothing can bring a man's downfall faster than a woman's lies.

It seems that whenever Jay and Allison are near each other, disaster strikes. And when one of the disasters leaves Jay injured, guilt-ridden Allison decides to nurse the cranky cop back to health. But will her ministrations heal the wounds deep inside both of them, or will it end in yet another disaster?

Warning: this title contains hot, steamy sex explicitly described.

Happy Father's Day....SURPRISE!

So, what are those? They're brand-new baby Russian Dwarf hamsters. And they were what I found when I went to clean my oldest son's cage. He named his hamster "Skooter". Skooter, apparently is a she. Skooter damn near took my finger off and she is never like that. It wasn't until she moved like a tigress to attack my innocent pinky did I see why. My youngest thinks we should keep these. 8 Russian Dwarf Hamsters to clean up after, I don't think so. I've never seen a baby rodent before. They're uh, so ugly they're cute. I'm just hoping their mama doesn't uh, eat them.

I just want your extra time and your KISS

Okay, so while I profess that I'm not good at talking about myself, I mean it. Which is why sometimes it takes friends to encourage me to put myself out there and try something new. They usually have to bend, twist and finally dare me--double dog dare me into submission. This was the case when Donica Covey twisted my arm behind my back and made me beg for mercy.

Donica persuaded me into submitting a kiss to ecataromance. You know, the same gracious people with whom I did my very first chat with as an author. I really love the first kiss Eddie and Grace share and it was so fun to write that I thought I'll use that one. Lo' and behold, it was picked. My "yummy" smooch was selected as "Smooch of the Day".

Now, in keeping it real, when I read the email, I did the cabbage patch, or at least my version of it and my youngest son aka J-Man wanted to know what a smooch was. So, I grabbed his little face and kissed him. He said "ooh" and did a little wiggle. "Mommy's in loooove"

"With who?" asks his dad.

A dramatic eyeroll ensues. "With me, silly! Who else?"

Thank you so much to ecataromance.com!
