Howdy! It’s a windy day here, but what’s new? At least there’s no snow.
Work in Progress News ~ Going back to my roots, and working on my western set in the late 1800s. Which means I’ve got one browser tab open to the etymology website so I don’t mess anything up. It’s name is Jared, but that might change, it’s still a baby. I swore I’d never do historical again! Somebody talk me out of this!
Favorite Song of the Week ~ I love everything these guys do, but I’m trying not to use them every week. Here Pentatonix is covering Say Something by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera.
Tweet of the Week ~ I hope the gif works for you. It’s so true!
This is how it feels to write a book… http://t.co/Ebi60n1l5N

Industry News ~ Looks like Barnes and Noble sold off their Nook division. [source: http://nyti.ms/1lna5y9] I hope this is a good move for BN, I’d like to see some steady competition in the digital reading world.
What I’m reading ~ Defining Destiny by Deanna Chase. Here’s half of the blurb: Singer-songwriter Lucy Moore thought her life was perfect. At just twenty-one, she’s already met her soul mate and together they’ve landed a recording contract. But when her father dies and the love of her life betrays her in more ways than one, she returns home to pick up the pieces. On the shores of Mendocino, California, Lucy has some decisions to make. Should she start a solo career? Or should she leave it all behind for some semblance of normalcy in the quiet town she grew up in? And what about Seth, the tortured artist who always seems to be there when she needs him?
Today’s Tearjerker ~
Book Snippet ~ From Falling Star:
He followed her into her house, and even into her bedroom, despite her feeble attempts to kick him out. “If you brought some of your things over to my house, we wouldn’t have to go through this.” He peeled last night’s dress off her. Again.
“You wouldn’t mind a woman’s things in your bachelor bathroom?”
“Hell no. And when you aren’t with me, I can go in there and sniff them.”
“No, Depraved is what I would do after I sniffed them.”
“I think I’d like to see that.”
“I think I can arrange a private showing.” He pulled her into the shower, and lathered the loofa while she shampooed her hair.
“You, sir, are a distraction, and I can’t be late for work.”
“I’m just helping so you’ll be ready faster.”
“Then keep your tongue in your mouth.”
Not hardly. She did make it to work on time, but only because Adam drove like Mario Andretti. “And now I’ll have to pick you up tonight.” He kissed her cheek.
Okay folks. I’m off! Have a great weekend. Be sure to check out Dee Carney’s blog at http://deecarney.com to see what she’s been up to!
