Day 678 of This Cold

Biggest problem I have when I’m sick is…

I am irrationally angry.

Like rain-soaked badger with a sore tooth angry.

I don’t know why. I do know I wake up angry and literally just want to chew through everything and everyone in my path.

This has been a lifelong thing. And I don’t fit it so much as manage my expectations. And most of all, try not to chew on heads. Because that’s a good way to damage relationships.

I’m working on the cover for Ramen Assassin and honestly, it’s a pain in the ass. Because managing that image of what the book is about with current genre trends is a bitch and a half. Give me strength. And coffee.

Badger, the black and white monster cat, is doing well. He’s learning to bite less and is less pointy side up. He does however demand to be in the bathroom with you and if you would please turn on the faucet to a thin stream so he can stick his head under the water, that would be great. I’ll try to get a current picture of him at some point.

Harley, our grey tuxedo baby girl cat, is teaching Badger there’s right and wrong ways of how to play. He’s a slow learner and she’s not so patient. They’re getting there. He’s learned Love of Box from her and that the cat scratching cube is awesome. But she loves being brushed and that’s not something he likes, even when it’s being done to her and not him. Or he just wants the attention.

Gus Gus is slowing down. He’s an old man cairn terrorist and well, Badger is an asshole to him most of the time. He puts up with it for the most part but sometimes needs the hallway cleared of the Evil Menace so he can get from the front of the house to the back. Turtle, however, has become a favourite toy although there will always be Love of Red Ball in his life. The rain makes him sleepy. The sun makes him sleepy. He trundles over to his dog bed and settles in there then wakes up a bit later to sprawl out on the carpet. An hour or so later, back to the dog bed or if I am home, gets up on the couch next to me. He does need a bit more exercise but going outside to chase after Red Ball is out until the rain lets up.

And the rain? Because I had the Firebird detailed. So… rain. I was feeling groggy but okay last week. It was sunny. The Firebird was dirty. Wash and Wax. Pampering for the Pontiac.

And rain. 😀 CUE RAIN!

Heh. But that’s life.

I’m finishing up the John Lee Quarrel books by Nick Russell and I’m enjoying them. I’ll move onto his other series when I’m done. Which reminds me… I need to charge my kindle!

Nominated for Paranormal Romance Guild 2018! WOOOT!

Okay… first off, please keep in mind… I’m on a four day bender of li hing mui, sweet black tea and cold meds. It’s a magical combination but like all heavy duty colds, it’s a slog of sleep, coughing and wondering what day it is.

BUT a glimmer of sunrise on the dark horizon! Paranormal Romance Guild has reached out and told me I’m up for several awards for their 2018 roster. I am quite honoured and blessed to be among such fantastic writers and I wish everyone the best of luck!

Blergh

So at some point, I came into contact with an agent of Satan.

Probably that toddler on the plane.

Now I have a cold.

It’s at the point of mostly icky, some miserable and just want sleep.

The dog is handling the sleep portion of my cold because I have to work so I had to outsource. He does a good job. Because man, he’s asleep and snoring.

Hellion’s going well. Or so I think. I’m excited about a plot point. It’s just a matter of trying to hit it right. That’s always the struggling point in a book. Is this angle working and did the author pull it off.

Sadly, I can’t actually use a lot of cold medicine because of the meds I take. I also hate NyQuil. And half a Benadryl will take me out into a coma for days. Seriously. I don’t know how people take two of them. I look at a damned Benadryl and I pass out.

So, it’s going to be sweet black tea…hot and with li hing mui lemon in it.

Twenty-Nineteen

I wanted to drop a quick hey and wish you all a Happy New Year.

After spending two weeks or so in the wilds of Hawai’i, I am back home in San Diego having fed my friends and family much food. Now is the time to head back into the grind and work on Ivo’s story.

I’m much happier with the plot and hope I can do the boy justice. *grins*

And now… Connor and Forest.

“She’s only getting the two,” Forest muttered, digging through his suitcase for the pair of jeans he knew he’d packed in its voluminous interior. “Shit, I didn’t even give birth to them and I feel every single damned stretchmark and worry line a mother’s got. No more. We’re not having any more.” Continue reading “Tutus and Tinsel Blog Tour’s Last Stop! Connor and Forest!”

Tutus and Tinsel
Zig Reid-Harris has everything an eleven-year-old girl could ever want: a great home, two fantastic fathers named Deacon Reid and Lang Harris, and all the books she could possible read.

When a school assignment about holiday traditions unexpectedly broadsides her, she discovers burying the past isn’t as easy as it looks, and the stark reality of her life before her adoption sinks in. Ashamed of the bleakness and poverty she came from, Zig struggles with the assignment until an epiphany strikes the whole family—it’s time to start their own traditions.

Zig and her fathers plunge into the insanity of holiday joy, exploring everything the season has to offer and learning how precious family truly is along the way.
