Manic Monday: iPad iBooks, Waiting on the Mailman, and Shiver Book Review…

5 Apr
We Finally Meet iPhone’s Mama…
Well, I guess I should say that no, I did not run out and buy one. I’m an author, and quite frankly, an iPad won’t do much good for me other than reading books (typing without real keys = not going to happen). At the rate I read books, though, the screen will hurt my eyes.
I think it should have been named iTab…
Anyways. So my books are making their way into the iBookstore, if they’re not on there already. I got a notification telling me Feather: Book One made it, and so far that makes me very happy. So all you iPad-dlers out there, look for me 😀
Also look for me, coming soon to: Sony e-reader, Barnes and Noble Nook, and just about any other form, including in the Indonesian market, in your language! That’s right, we’re going global.
Waiting on the Mailman…

I’m awaiting my Author Review Copy of Knight Angels. Very Exciting!
He never comes at the same time, and there’s no way of knowing if it will come today, or tomorrow. It’s killing me, and it’s so fun to finally get to see what it’s going to look like in person!
*biting nails*
Shiver Book Review…
Ah, I love holidays.
I read the whole book cover to cover yesterday, and I don’t think I could have done it any other way. I am a sucker for romantic stories of star-crossed lovers. I figured that was rather obvious because of my writing…
I regret that I waited this long to read this book, and no, that does not mean I finished Beautiful Creatures. I’m still knawing my way through that one, not that it’s bad, it just wasn’t my taste. It’s like wine – personal taste.
what made it better was the fact it was cold and windy yesterday, so I really got a sense of the story. Of course today it snowed again, like it did friday… Gotta love April.

Just Another Manic Monday…

9 Feb

Happy Monday, right? Well when you’re a literary shut in like me, it’s no different than any other day of the week, unless you count the fact that I get to catch up on all the shows I missed last week on my DVR.

My highlight from last week:

Saturday I spent most of the day at the local pub (slowly consuming Hefe) Afterwards, my husband and I went to the Washington State University Basketball game where I met this big guy! He’s a Golden Eagle, and if you look closely (at my admittedly blurry picture) you’ll see that his eyes are quite black. This is because he was rescued when he was one, completely blind…

Needless to say I adopted him.

Well not ACTUALLY, but metaphorically through donation. Darn that beer, lowering my inhibitions till I buy a giant wild Raptor…

But it felt good, regardless 🙂

The good news is we won the basketball game, and I went home, I played a riveting game of Frisbee golf on the Wii…

Best Song of My Day

I was folding laundry, the most horrible chore in the world, aside from emptying the dishwasher, when I heard one of my newest, most favorite, songs. I’ve always liked Taylor Swift, and this song flexed her vocals away from the country, but not away from her talent. I’ll leave you, this oh so bleary Monday, with the song 🙂
