As I write this it’s about 1:30 on a Monday afternoon. It’s the middle of a workday, and I’m still in my pajamas. And I don’t care! 🙂 Yesterday Mother Nature threw a bit of a hissy fit on us, dropping sleet, freezing rain and snow. To be honest, it was kind of interesting to watch because it kept switching back and forth between these forms of frozen precipitation, and you never knew what you were going to see when you looked out the window. Of course, this morning I looked out and saw this:
Now, to those of you to whom an average snowfall is measured in feet and not inches this is laughable. But to this Southern chick? It means one thing: Hibernation. So I’m semi-hibernating today, and that’s why I’m still in my pj’s. Because when I saw Her Majesty out in the driveway all covered in snow and sleet I knew there wasn’t anywhere I needed to go.
So what does a housebound author do all day? Why,
she works on her book catches up on housework goofs off on the internet takes a lot of pictures with her phone. (Let me note here that I attempted to take pictures with my real camera, but it’s decided to be difficult and refuse to acknowledge that the fresh batteries I put in it are actually fresh and shuts itself off the minute I turn it on.) Since the zoom on my iPhone camera isn’t exactly cutting-edge, I end up with a lot of pictures like this:
The pictures may be blurry (to say the least!), but the birds themselves are entertaining. I’ve seen about six different varieties of birds (varieties? species? kinds? You know what I mean, right?) this morning, and I’ve found it a very pleasant way to pass the time. But now I guess I need to get to work. Unfortunately, Sister Golden Hair refuses to write itself and requires my input.
But before I go, let me share with you a total squee-worthy thing that happened last week! I opened up the latest issue of InD’Tale Magazine and discovered they’d reviewed Song Without Words. And not only did they give it a spectacular review, rating it 4.5 out of 5 stars, they awarded it a Crowned Heart for Excellence! I pretty much danced on air all weekend!
And one more thing – all three of my Romances that Rock are on sale for the month of February! They’re just $1.99 each, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Crimson and Clover’s price is available on Amazon only, but Athena’s Daughter and Song Without Words are on sale at all online retailers. If you’d like to grab the graphic below and share the hell out of it I wouldn’t mind a bit. 😉 But these prices are only good this month, so grab ’em now and get sex, drugs & rock ‘n roll in London, betrayal & redemption in Memphis, and music & murder in New Orleans for less than six bucks!
