I've got the rights back for Got Mistletoe?

It's been a good week. I've been doing a good amount of writing. I'm enjoying how my characters continue to talk to me and so far I'm really loving what they're saying.

This week I received the rights back from my first book, Got Mistletoe? Now I face the dilemma of what to do with it. Should I submit it to another publisher? Should I add to it and self-publish? Should I make it a free story? Should I just let it go for a little while?  I honestly don't have any idea what to do with it. The thing is...I really love those two men and I always intended to write more about them. But then I'd wonder if I should let the story end where it should...ugh...I'm so conflicted.  Do y'all have any suggestions?

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Meet Sasha

Hello Friends!

It's been a pretty good week for me. I've been working hard on my current WIP and hope to have it finished soon. My boys are being quite talkative, so it's been a pretty smooth book to write. 

I've been trying to be more active on the social media. I think I'm doing better, but in all honesty, most of the time I wonder if people really do care about what I post or not. I mean, who really wants to know what I ate last night? One thing that totally mystifies me is the 'selfie'.  Now, I will be first to admit that I avoid the camera like the plague. I hate getting my picture taken, so me taking a selfie is pretty slim to none. *grin* But having said this, what makes someone want to take a pic of just about any situation...even if it's embarrassing or not and want to share it? I have a few people that I follow that take selfies of themselves everyday. Between us, it really kind of cracks me up because I wonder if other people really DO want to see a picture of the same person everyday.

I can't believe I forgot to tell y'all that we adopted our first cat!!  (pictured above) Three months ago, I was in the front yard with my dogs and I look up and see this skinny, young cat running to me as if the hounds of hell were after him. I immediately fell in love and to my delight, our dogs and my sweet husband soon fell under his spell too.

He has taken to our family perfectly. Our dogs get along great with fact, he and Snookie are pretty close. Now I can't imagine life without him. We named him Sasha and everyday his cat behavior ends up fascinating me more. They are very different than dogs, and I find that I've become a cat person...which is something I never thought I'd be. He's a total indoor cat, so he often looks out the window and pines to be outside, and to his dismay, he's going to be housebound. There are too many stray dogs and wild animals that live in the forest right across the street from us. Sooo...I'm giving y'all a fair warning...I love our four legged babies, so expect pictures and for me to gush about them in the future! 

Here is Sasha sleeping comfortably with his best friend Snookie:

Aren't they adorable together? We sure do love our babies!

I hope everyone has a great week ahead!! *HUGS*

Happy Thursday!!

Happy Thursday!

I had a good couple of days with my husband. He works weekends and  a lot of overtime, so the moments we spend together are precious to me.  We are both getting over the flu and we still have the cough from hell, but we're better. Last night, we rented movies and spent the majority of it watching them, which was really nice.

I'm going to finish one of my WIP's before the month is over. I'm pretty excited over finally taking the time and finishing it, but it's been on my mind heavily these past few days and it's time to finish their story. I'll have more about it at the end of the week...promise.

Have a great day, everyone!! *HUGS*

I'm back!

It's been awhile since I've blogged. Frankly, my life has been pretty hectic last year, so I hope that this year I'll be able to focus more than I have in the past. My resolution this year is to get out of the cave I've put myself in and become more socializing on the social network scene. We'll see because I've never been one to post a lot on here, facebook and twitter...but I'm going to try harder.

On a positive note I've got three works in progress I'm working on. I hope to have at least one of them finished by the end of the month. I think I'm going to submit it somewhere new, so I'm pretty anxious about it.

My beautiful niece is in first grade...can you believe it?  I had to post a picture to show you how much she's changed this past's amazing how much she's growing up!
