Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! And you know what Valentine's Day means, right? That's right, sexy books!

Come on over to LustBites, where our vivacious group of Black Lace and Cheek authors are holding a giveaway. In the upper right of the picture, you can see a British copy of Teresa's and my very own Cat Scratch Fever. I know you have a copy already, but why not try to win one for a friend? You'll get a fabulous goody bag of other books, including Sex in Public, which contains the Sophie story "Make Me Come at the Ball Game"! (It's not even out in the US until April, so here's your chance to read it early!)

All you have to do to win one of the goody bags is to leave a comment over at LustBites. Nothing fancy, nothing profound. Just say "hi," and you'll be entered in the drawing.

As if that isn't enough, there's also a fun little quiz--can you figure out which statement is true or false about each of the authors. Most importantly, how well do you know me: do you know if Sophie Mouette's "fact" is true or false? ;-)

So please stop by. It would make my day if one of my friends won a prize!

Fear my power

Words Written: ~1700 words notes on a new novel (ack!)
Writing Stats: Prepped and/or mailed a total of 12 stories.
Exercise: up and down the stairs I go…

Woke up about 8 a.m. today, decided that was way too early, and went back to sleep for a couple more hours. Had weird dreams and woke up with a crick in my neck. It’s all a trade-off.

But boy howdy, have I had energy today! I worked. I made a loose menu plan for the week, made a list, and did a big grocery shopping. I did two loads of laundry (still have to put ‘em away, though). I finished prepping and/or mailing a total of 12 stories. My e-mail in box is mostly down to reminder e-mails (as opposed to things I have to answer—I have only one of them left to go).

Dangnabbit! And only a few hours later, a story gets rejected. Muttergrumble. Back to the drawing board. (Update a few hours later: back in the mail. Fear my story submission power!)

Aaaand, that novel that was bugging me the other day? Crap. I may have to write it sooner than I thought… No idea where I’m going to fit it into the schedule, but hey, that’s why I said this year was all about flexibility, right?
