Can’t Stop. Must Breathe.

So… life’s a bit twisted about and my deadlines are chasing me. I’ve got a book due on Sept 15th and well, I’m hacking at words to hit that deadline.

No, there’s no moving deadlines.

Nothing I was writing was hitting. Like nothing. There’s a certain feeling you get when you start writing a book and it begins to lay down but that wasn’t coming. So I had to shift gears…

And try something completely different.

I don’t know where this is going. Hell, I don’t even have a title. It might not make any fricking sense but screw it… Sept 15th and I’m over the halfway mark with only a little bit of plotting screwed down and ready to go.

So… do you trust me?

OOOhhhh movie!

I do want to see this. Of course I’ll have to wait for English Subtitles but it looks well done and from what I hear, a bit “X-Men / Avengers” but really, how can that be a bad thing? It’ll be interesting to see the different take and perspective of a Superhero movie from a cultural / social standpoint I have very little anchor in. This kind of thing fascinates me. It’s one of the major reasons I love watching foreign action films is because of how the world is portrayed from that cultural viewpoint and what a director brings to the table.


In Case You Missed This… Half Moon Bay #2

This will be released by Dreamspinner Press on December 5th.

Hanging the Stars (Half Moon Bay #2)
Angel Daniels grew up hard, one step ahead of the law and always looking over his shoulder. A grifter’s son, he’d learned every con and trick in the book but ached for a normal life. Once out on his own, Angel returns to Half Moon Bay where he once found…and then lost…love.

Now, Angel’s life is a frantic mess of schedules and chaos. Between running his bakery and raising his troubled eleven-year-old half-brother, Roman, Angel has a hectic but happy life. Then West Harris returns to Half Moon Bay and threatens to break Angel all over again by taking away the only home he and Rome ever had.

When they were young, Angel taught West how to love and laugh but when Angel moved on, West locked his heart up and threw away the key. Older and hardened, West returns to Half Moon and finds himself face-to-face with the man he’d lost. Now, West is torn between killing Angel or holding him tight.

But rekindling their passionate relationship is jeopardized as someone wants one or both of them dead, and as the terrifying danger mounts, neither man knows if the menace will bring them together or forever tear them apart.

979462095-angry-wet-catI am by nature, kinda grumpy.

Like wet cat grumpy. I admit it. I try not to be but for the most part, I like to stew in my own head and mutter dark, foul things at my thoughts. It works for me. I try not to inflict that on others.

But some days… you just cannot fight the wet, grumpy cat inside of you.

Yesterday evening, the nasty hellspawn of a wet cat reared its sopping, disgruntled head and made itself known.

And I still kind of hellspawn pissy at the moment. There are some reasons for it, minor ones and usually I can let those go but apparently, not today. I MIGHT just need more coffee. Or I have a disgruntlement going. That happens too. And I just have to let it seep out and go away.

What about you? Whatcha do to get rid of the grumps?
