I did it! I finished Kissed by Nemesis!! It is the first book I've successfully completed in almost two years. I am so happy I was able to work through my writer's block and thanks to my characters the story went pretty smoothly. They had a good story to tell.
I've sent it off to my editor so now the waiting begins. I hate this part. Ugh!
There will be three more books in the Kissed by an Immortal series. I'm really anxious to write the third book in the series, Kissed by Keres and hope to have it done by the end of the year. I've started the next book in the Men of Charlestown series and there is another book Color My World that I'm currently working on now. I'm also going to try and squeeze a Christmas story in there somewhere too. So if things go the way I plan...by the end of the year I hope to have four more books done.
Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Now, I'm off to stalk my email....ugh.

I am so tired and as you can tell by the picture above, Sasha my four-legged son, is exhausted too. He's with me every step I take and supervises me while I write, cook and everything in between. I love him so much, I honestly wouldn't have it any other way. He is my sweet boy.
Between working hard at finishing my book and running back and forth to Little Rock *which is 2 hours away* this girl is exhausted. I attempted to write tonight, but when I found I kept repeating myself and having to continuously go back and fix things, I knew it was time for a break. Plus, by the look of my son *See Picture Above* he is ready for me to take a break too.
So I decided to walk away from it for one night.
I am SOOOO close to being done, so I should still achieve my goal of finishing Kissed By Nemesis today or tomorrow. Is it okay to say that I really love the two heroes in my book? Jared and Nemesis really work hard at making their relationship a successful and happy one. I liked them both and loved the story they had me tell. I'm very excited to see if you guys will love them like I do too.
Another fantastic thing that's happened this week is that Kissed by Death has been read and reviewed by several review sites AND they really liked the story! This is an oddity for me because I NEVER get reviewed so I am so thrilled and appreciative to anyone who takes time out of their valuable day to read and review my book. It really makes all of the hard work worth it and it totally makes my day.
So, I hope to actually finish my book and do some darn laundry around here soon. I keep hoping the laundry fairy will come and do it all while I'm asleep, but alas she never does. I guess she's to busy having a blast at the beach, drinking Strawberry Daiquiris and hanging out with hot men...lucky girl!
I think Sasha and I need a vacation.
Have a great day:) See you soon. *HUGS*

I hope everyone has had a good Father's Day weekend. Ours was a quiet. We mainly stayed home and did things around the house.
I've got good news!! I'm almost done with my book, Kissed by Nemesis. I've got about three chapters to go and it will be completed. At this rate, I should hopefully be finished with it in the next couple of days. I'm so happy that I've been able to work through the writer's block I've had for the past two years. It's been a hard journey, but I did it!
What's even better is that I really like the story I created. I love my two heroes, Nemesis and Jared and truly hope you guys will adore them like I do.
Well, I'm off to bed. Have a great day.

Nothing is better than a rainbow themed party and sharing some cheap pizza with friends. :)
I loved her outfit...particularly those rainbow colored socks. Her hair bows rocked it too!
She had a blast and later said it was the best Birthday Party she ever had. Can't believe she's eight years old already and it will be interesting to see what changes she goes through in the next year.

Want to know more about Kissed by Death?
Here is the Blurb:
When Gregory Harris was fourteen he had a massive heart attack during a baseball game. While others are desperately trying to keep him alive, a tall, handsome man in a hooded black cloak suddenly appears beside him. Young Gregory instinctively realizes this man is the Grim Reaper, and has come to take him off to the afterlife. Just when he’s ready to be taken by the Angel of Death, Gregory notices his parents so grief-stricken, he begs the Angel of Death for more time on Earth to be with them. Shockingly, he manages to convince the mysterious being to allow him to live a while longer, knowing the consequence of not having an active life. Even though Gregory was around the Angel of Death for just a few short moments, he never forgets his handsome face, the surprising attraction and kinship he felt for the mysterious creature.
Seven years later, the Angel of Death has come back to claim Gregory’s life. Even though he is ready to move onto the afterlife, Gregory can’t help but feel regret because he’s never had a lover to call his own. Just as the reaper is about to take him away, Gregory remembers he once read if you are able to trick the reaper, you can be granted more life or even able to escape death itself. But Gregory has no intention of escaping the Grim Reaper, instead he intends to do whatever it takes to make Angel of Death realize they truly belong together forever.
Thank you for checking it out:) I really appreciate it.

Today is a reason for me to celebrate. My book, Kissed by Death is re-released through Extasy books today and to make matters even BETTER...it is my gorgeous niece's 8th birthday today...how is that for an amazing, awesome and positive sign? WHOOP!
To celebrate Snow White's 8th birthday we are attending her first roller skating party tonight. She will be wearing her new skates and since her party is rainbowed themed, she's definitely going to rival Rainbow Bright by the fun and many colors she wears. I'll post pictures of the party when I get home.
I hope everyone has a great day today. Thanks so much,

I apologize in advance because I'm about to do some venting and will probably use some salty language. I normally don't do this, but after the news we've had today, I think I might be entitled.
So, when I last blogged I shared that the trial for the woman who hit my brother-in-law in a head on collision was supposed to be tomorrow. We, as a family have been ready for this. It's been a year of sheer hell. No lie. To think in one moment he was lost due to someone being on a narcotic, passing in the fog because she didn't want to be late for her husband's appointment pisses us all off. To make matters worse, she has been very cold about all of this. But, that's neither here nor there. If I get too much into it I will probably need a drink or four in a few minutes. The woman has been a monster about this and it's made shit worse than it was already.
We get a call from the prosecuting attorney. Guess what? Her lawyer requested a continuance so the trial is being postponed until August 19th. Now, please don't get me wrong. We know how it can be with these kinds of things. Things are postponed...etc, but it still hurts. It hurts because my husband and in laws are unable to get on with their lives because of this bullshit. Watching the events progress since JR's death have been educational at most. It's very apparent the court system...in our case at least, is catered for the defendant. No thoughts toward the victim and his family. No thoughts for the hell they've gone through. No thoughts for the loss they've had. As long as you have a good defense attorney and well...money, you're set.
This sucks. My mother-in-law had a horrible weekend and a bad day yesterday. She's been crying and extremely emotional *the anniversary of his death is also coming up* and both my in-laws are living in sheer hell. They can't not think about the upcoming trial. They can't help but worry. They can't help but vent and grieve over every damn thing that's happened to them. Now, they get to worry, fret and worse for ANOTHER two months because we're just putting off the inevitable. I'm sick of it. I'm sick of seeing my husband and his family be heartbroken. I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.
Sorry for the rant. I'll be better next time. I'm just frustrated, heart hurt and angry as hell.
Thanks for being there.

Sasha and I Wish You a Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was good. Did some writing and spent time with hubby and his parents.
The woman who hit and killed my brother in law is on trial Wednesday. I'm worried, but ready for it to be over. It's time for some justice for him so we can all lay him to rest peacefully.
If you don't see me before the 10th, have a great week ahead.

It's been a long time since I've posted recent pictures of my niece, Snow White. She just finished her last day of second grade and I thought I'd share her pictures with you.
There is a comparison in the first picture between the first and last day of second grade. As you can see, that girl is growing up so quickly! Oh my goodness!! I love seeing her develop and grow into her own person, but I'm mourning for the young child I once knew.
She has a heart of gold. If you need something she'll give it to you. She actively includes others, befriends everyone, is sharp as a tack, loves to be creative and LOVES to read! I am super proud of her and love her so very much.
In the last picture, she's just having fun in the front of the camera. She has a sense of humor that keeps all of us laughing all the time.
We get to keep her some this summer and I'm looking forward to it. One day, she'll be too busy to hang out with her boring Aunt and Uncle, *she thinks we are fun now...wink* so I'm going to enjoy all of the moments we spend with her.
I love this little girl and am so proud to call her my niece. She is awesome and one day she'll grow up to be the kind of woman I know I'd like to one day be.
