Howdy! Welcome back. If you reached this post via social media, you’re one of the lucky ones!
No status last week, since I was part of the JustRomance.Me blog hop. I know the three of you out there in the world really missed my status post. (Hi, Mom!)
Work in Progress News ~ Back to work on Jackson. I don’t know why, he’s just the guy who started talking when I opened the WIP folder, so I’ll keep writing as long as he keeps talking. This is a standalone (at least for now) M/M. It’s actually a GFY, and I’m hesitant. Hope I can pull it off. Luckily I have a plethora of M/M authors I can rope into giving me advice on this thing.
Favorite Song of the Week ~ New country duo, new label, new single. I’m gonna have to say these two are going to be pretty big. This song is great for many reasons:
Tweet of the Week ~
Damn girl, are you an apostrophe? Because you’re really possessive and always jump in at the end and change what I’m trying to say.

Industry News ~ Amazon has begun “same day delivery” in very limited areas (and with very limited merchandise options). I don’t think they get to use drones yet though, so I’ll hold out for that! I’m still hoping Hatchette and Amazon will work out their differences before my favorite author Sandra Brown’s book comes out later this month. If not I’ll have to read a hardback copy like the old days!
What I’m reading ~ Oh, you guys. I read a horrible book, and by chapter two I knew I was going to hate it, and I kept reading anyway. By chapter five I had several passages highlighted where the hero is such a JERK! I mean rude and mean and lots of fill in the blankishness. I shouldn’t have wasted my time, but this was written by a fairly well known author, so I figured I must be missing something. Anyway, I won’t be showcasing it here for you because I’m pretty disappointed that I won’t get those few hours of my life back.
Today’s Tearjerker ~
Book Snippet ~ From my wip Jackson, because I feel like sharing.
Noah slouched over his whiskey, trying like hell to ignore the dry-humping couple on the seat beside him. He’d get up and move, but the place was packed, and he had to hold onto this bar stool or he’d end up standing against the wall. Facing the crowd. That would lead to eye contact. Eye contact led to conversation.
Noah wasn’t here for conversation. He was here for ninety minutes and as much alcohol that his twenty dollar bill would buy. Unfortunately it wasn’t much, so he nursed his drink until the ice melted. He showed up fifteen minutes before this busload of bar-hopping college students. If there is a God, they’ll get bored and look for a club with dancing.
All right, you guys. Football has already started, and baseball is still in full swing (haha!), but go out and enjoy these few remaining summer weekends.
