Lost in my own world.

I've been in a groove with the current story I'm working on. Still I've had time to ponder which conferences I want to attend this year. With thinking about moving I'm not sure if I should just wait until next year. More importantly do I want to wait until next year. My husband says I should just go. What ever I do i've decided I'm not going alone. I'm going to drag either my daughter or sister along with me.

Humor Unbound

What men and women find funny can sometime be on different ends of the spectrum. I'm glad my husband an I find a lot of the same things funny.

That said his sense of humor was not appreiciated this morning when he woke me and said "Hey guess what you're old. Chazz (our son) is going to be fifteen today."

Well hell he's older than me!

I didn't feel old until my daughter turned eighteen 2 years ago, which made me 36. Ouch!

Info on upcoming workshop

Thought I'd give a shout out incase anyone was interested.

Angela James, editor extraordinaire, is coming to Romance Divas for a 3 day class on Epublishing! Come join us Jan 13-15 and ask her anything.

Everything You Ever Needed to Know About Epublishing (and some things you didn't know you should know)

Why doesn't epublishing offer advances? What are some of the pros and cons of publishing my manuscript via epublishing? How do I research publishers? Can I really make money in epublishing? What exactly is POD? Can you give me a snappy comeback for people who say that epublishing isn't real publishing?

Epublishing has evolved and grown, especially in the last 5 years, but with growth comes pitfalls and problems, and trusting an epublisher with your baby might seem like a risky proposition. We'll cover the basics of epublishing, from choosing an epublisher and contract details to methods of ebook and print distribution to reasons why you might not want to epublish your manuscript.


In 2005, Angela James joined Samhain Publishing, Ltd, a small press company focusing on digital publishing, as its executive editor, where she has played an instrumental role in building the company from the ground up. In her executive position at Samhain, Angela is responsible for managing the publisher's editorial services division. Her responsibilities include the management of editorial staff, quality oversight, networking and marketing efforts at regional, national and international writing conferences to promote the electronic publishing industry as well as Samhain.

In addition to her administrative duties, Angela continues to edit more than 50 authors including national bestselling authors Lucy Monroe, Lilith Saintcrow and Deidre Knight

Like right now I have to take this stupid computer course and I could do it in like five minutes, but NO there's a 2 hour minimum attedence. Yeah right come on like I want to sit here and read this for two hours. Not to mention I already did it before so since nothings changed let me take the test and get the heck out of here. UGH!

Harley Taizer wasn’t used to dealing with her greedy parents. They’d never wanted her and made it perfectly clear by giving her to her grandfather. It’s funny how things change when money is involved. Discovering the trust fund her grandfather set up for her, her parents show up demanding the money be given to them. Afraid of just how far his son and daughter in-law will go to get it, her grandfather brings in a security specialist to help protect her.
Kasper Drake hasn’t met a trust fund baby he liked, though he is one himself. Upon meeting his uncle’s newest client he’s willing to throw out all his preconceived notions out the window. He’s trying to get Harley to admit to their fierce attraction when her father shows up demanding to know who Kasper is. She tells him that he’s her fiancĂ©e. Kasper latches onto her lie hoping to make her see how good it could be.
