Release Week

So April 14th, 2013 should be marked on all of your calenders...why you ask? It's Second Hand Lace release week! Within that week you'll be able to order from a variety of online bookstores, and on your kindle, kobo etc. Woohoo!!

Now that the excitement is easing off the work begins..Line edits..grammar patrol..all sorts of goodies. I've spent most of the day fixing my unknowingly awful formatting and eating cupcakes. Yum.

My FIL is doing a little better though they have him on a breathing tube for precautions sake. It is scary but it's for the best I'm sure.

 I'm trying to think of ways to make my blog more interesting...perhaps book/movie reviews....jokes of the day...umn...hot dudes of the day? maybe ladies for any fellas out there? Alright..lets give one or two of these ago...

Daily Joke:

What's invisible and smells like carrots?

A bunny fart.

Movie Review: Hobo with a Shot Gun.


Alright. Well that was fun. I have a sick husband at home, and as you know, the man cold is far worse than any type of sickness a lady could have..so...I better scurry home and tend to him.

Have a good day!!!

It's Official!

Good Morning Kittens!

It's a great day to be alive, isn't it? So. I got to do an incredibly grown up thing the other day..I got to sign my first ever publishing contract !!! My debut (that word called for something fancy dancy) novel, Second Hand Lace, is being published by Turquoise Morning Press ! They have tons of good books if your kindle needs a boost, or if you're old school like me, you need a new paperback!  My book will come out in the Spring of 2013, pending I don't make any colossal eff ups. I got to fill out all this fun stuff about what I thought the cover should look like, and who I'd dedicate it too..and all that jazz. Too.Much.Fun.

In other news, I did a guest blog on rantingsofawinehag.blogspot.com. I love her blog. It makes me chortle. Loudly.

If you're into praying, or sending good thoughts, send some over to my Father in law ! He just had surgery which has rendered him cancer free ! Thank you Lord.!!

Other things I'd like to thank God for today are:

Gum Balls

People who put their hazards on to say "Thank You" when you let them in a lane

Tim Hortons ( not roll up the rim though!)


Memory Foam


Any who. I finally got a cool idea for my new book...which I could use a couple readers for....so I shall be furiously scribbling into my notebook anytime the kids I'm babysitting for tonight are not screaming or hitting each other.

Have the best weekend ever!

Sick rhymes with Ick.

I am sick. and I freaking hate it. I'm pretty sure Lady of the Wine's sister in law', guest blogger, and my very dear friend Courtney's, kid gave it to me. Thanks Paige, you little jerk. Just kidding. I love her, but she did have her sickly teeny baby hands in my mouth for a good 5 minutes. After being on an airplane. I feel nauseous. But seriously. I effing hate being sick. My whole body hurts and I turn into a sweaty puddle of self loathing girl goo. I also cry easily. Like super easily. My husband takes full advantage and can reduce me to tears with a series of pokes. My dogs can also sense my weakness. Just last night Indi, my 50 ish lb boxer, stood on my chest and unleashed one million kisses, and about a liter of drool, onto my face. Not cool Dog, not cool. It also makes me completely useless. I have missed three days of work the past 8 working days, and haven't written a stitch. Not my fault though. The characters in my WIP have stopped whispering to me so I've moved onto my other one. A delightful tale of a girl who finds Mr. Right when she's about to marry the other Mr. Right. A far cry from my previous baby, a ghost story, but this one will steam up the windows. Yes that's right. It's going to have sex in it. Good sex. Completely unrealistic, doens't-actually-occur-outside-of-hollywood. vase breaking sex. My only issue is every time I start writing the sexy time I imagine my Mother, Mother in Law, and grandmothers sipping tea, reading it together. Instant buzz kill. Obviously. I now resort to writing my sex scenes slightly drunk while vampire diaries plays on repeat. Ian Somerhalder..or however you spell his last name...is disgustingly attractive. He's on my list of people I can bone whilst still married. Matts list contains Kathy Bates, Rosie O'Donnel, Rosanne, and Rihanna.
Any who. I  have to work now. If you're in the Greater Calgary Area come on in for a spray tan :)
