Is it just me or does that sound naughty?

How's that for a blog title?
Are you like me? (God, I sure hope not!) Do you tend to get bogged down in the day to day minutia? Do you worry about what "comes next" in your life, like you actually have control of any of it? If you do, then you are a silly fool like me. I feel your pain.
It seems I am always throwing road blocks in my own path. I can't enjoy the successes for worrying about what skulks behind door number 3.
What the hell is she talking about now? Life.
As a property owner. (Yeah, baby!) I have certain responsibilities. (Read TONS of responsibilities) I try to triage, to prioritize, but in the end...I obsess.
There was an old building on the property that needed to be demolished and a leaky pond needing either repair or to be filled in. Both things were taken care of this week. Whoo-hoo! Right? Nope. Now I am stressing over the next thing in line...fence repair. Oh, and finding a new job...my love life...the weather...what's for dinner...the book I'm writing...the one about to release and a contest to give away free copies of each.
Yes, I realize I have a problem. That's the first step to recovery, right?
I'm a work in progress. God hasn't finished with me yet.
What for my contest here, on Facebook and Twitter. Some lucky stiff will win a copy of both Dare to Dream and my new release, Mr. Fix-it!
Until then, stop to smell the roses...I can't...mine died...from lack of rain...
I've got my lovely cover posted (thank you Jinger Heaston!) on "my stories" page along with a story excerpt and a link provided to the adults only excerpt on my blogger site. I hope you enjoy them.
My release date is set for August 30th but Mr. Fix-it should be available for pre-order before then. Check my publisher's site for details. Siren Publishing, Inc.
Well, as most of you know, my second book is going to be released soon. Mr. Fix-it is a contemporary, romantic suspense published by Siren Publishing, Inc.
The date has been set fro August 30th! I have lovely cover art and Banner. For a sneak peek check out: my stories.
I hope you enjoy it. There are more twists than a worm on a hot rock!
Watch for my promotion where I will give a way not only a copy of Mr. Fix-it to some lucky reader but also a copy of Dare to Dream as well.
It's been a hell of a week for yours truly. Where to begin?
At the urging of a friend, I signed up for one of those on-line dating thingamabops. It's a new age, people are busy, who has time? I understand the concept. But remember, I've been out of the dating loop for over 3 decades. (God, that makes me sound so old!) So what do I get right out of the box? Two, count them, 2 internet predators. It was quite the learning experience. Perhaps more so for them, than me. LOL
Boys, we southern girls didn't just fall off the cabbage truck. We will find you and it won't be pretty.
So you pick yourself up, dust your bruised ego and climb back on that bronc. Time will tell if I'll find Mr. Right or not. I'm in no rush. Much.
I spoke to a very nice man last evening...
Two job interviews this week as well. Waiting on the outcomes. They are still interviewing so I will have a lot of competition.I should know something by the end of next week.
Dare to Dream is out on Amazon! Yeah, it surprised me too. I have my release date pretty firm for
Mr. Fix-it--August 30th. I still need my cover art and line edits, but all systems are go otherwise. Check My Stories page for blurbs and buy links.
The folks in New York still have parts or all of my urban fantasy series.
~sigh~ New York has their own time table which I am pretty sure will result in my posthumous acclaim. When I said I wanted to be on the New York Times Best Seller's list in five years I didn't mean five after I died.
My fault, I wanted to be a writer.
Speaking of dead. It's been 105 or more for a week. Zero rain. I'm feeding my winter hay. This does not bode well.
Imagine my surprise when I went to Amazon to search for a friend's book and discovered my own! Is the author always the last to know?
Whatever the case it's there and I'm a happy camper. So go buy my darned book will ya?
Buy Dare to Dream on AmazonWhile you're at it, scope out Marges Church's new release Hard as Teak, from Noble Romance . Check out the blurb on my Books and Contests page and then go visit my Get Bit by my Free Reads blogspot, for a hot, hot, hot adult excerpt!
Feast in the workplace and famine at home?
What the hell is she talking about now, you might well ask. I have two job interviews this week. That is a good thing, right? Sure, unless they both decide to say yes. Then I have to make a decision. Just now, I am not sure I am capable. (Of course, they COULD say no...)
My second book is due to release very soon. Great! Yes, it is, but I have to make a decision there as well. I need a few more naughty words to get into one category and a few less for another. Yep, believe it or not, publishers count the words in more ways than one.
So there is my professional life. My personal one ain't no better. How's that for grammar folks? (My publisher is cringing.)
My experiences in on-line dating have been eyeopening to say the very least. Both my first and second "friend" ended up being internet predators. Oh! Lucky me! So, ladies check all your files for a man from Nigeria (or possibly Paris, Houston and parts unknown) who is in some sort of export business. firstname.lastname@example.org has many aliases, Peter Cannon, Kelvin Collins, Bradley Jones, Mike Francis to name a few. He's been on Face Book and all the networking/dating sites.
And guys, could you read the profiles before you clink the little button? No smokers means NO SMOKERS and ditto for HUNTERS. I want Bambi in the forest NOT with his ass on the dinner table with his head over the fire place.
Rant over. Work now.
