Surely much of it is self-inflicted but it is December and I do enjoy baking goodies and making gifts; there’s just so many delicious things to cook and each year we add more recipes to our collection. At the same time I am anxious to wrap up Armand’s story but the muses are playing hide and seek – in another dimension, occasionally popping their heads in for a few moments just to tease me. Anyway, I grew up in Minnesota and that usually meant snow on the ground before Christmas – usually. But now I am in North Carolina and while we have had some chilly weather, we have also enjoyed some very warm, 70 degree weather, which I love even though it makes it slightly more difficult to get into the Christmas spirit. But we have put up the lights and we got our tree and the presents are wrapped and snuggled underneath said tree and the ingredients are out and the gift containers are lined up and the Christmas music is playing….
And Armand is still waiting.
Just a little video the kids took; Lucy loves her ice cubes, unfortunately they don’t love her.
So, my eldest son has been making scarves – super duper long scarves – and is getting ready to sell them on etsy, or some such site; he is just working on getting all of his ducks in order. He had his little sister “model” the scarves, showcasing the many ways they can be worn – and all of the colors he has so far. The last picture is of him and his GF.
And a video of a song the kids enjoy – it’s very catchy.
I have been hard at work this past week, writing and what not. I am having someone read Stone Romance that has not read Stone Lover to see if everything makes sense to the uninitiated. Once that is done I will be able to edit and clean it up and get it published. I am aiming for a September release – keep your fingers crossed. Stone Destiny is coming along – I love Armand and am looking forward to seeing his HEA. I’ve only gotten about 10,000 words written but i have only been working on it for a few days. If I can get Stone Destiny done I will be able to have the trilogy complete in time for Christmas. I plan on having a giveaway for hard copies of all three books plus some swag to celebrate. I am test running the t-shirt and if it turns out as awesome as the picture suggests it will a t-shirt will be included in the swag bag. I still have to figure out how to run the Gargoyles for Christmas contest but at least I have a name.

ETA: I was going to renew Siren Song in the KDP select program and for a day it was there. But I wanted it to end after the next 90 days so I un-clicked the automatic renewal button and somehow it became un-enrolled in KDP so now it is going up on smashwords and will be available at other retailers.
Turn off the lights, light a few candles, get comfortable, close your eyes and picture Vaughn or Rhys or Armand or Duncan or Feryn or Wilson….
I absolutely had to post this – it’s my favorite band and the song title is Song to the Siren. And it’s awesome. So, enjoy.
okay, so the song is sad, the lyrics are painful (in a good way), the video is depressing but, my God! this is an awesome song. I love The Dreaming and pretty much all of their music. No, I take that back – I love all of their music, going back to the days when Christopher was in Stabbing Westward – another fantabulous band, by the way. Waking Up Beside You is one of my all-time favorite songs.
I freaking LOVE this song- Marco has an amazing voice.
