Down sick ... blah

Blah is right!! I started a great new 'day' job today and what starts happening ... *Drum roll please*

I start feeling the sickness, nope not Dope's Down with the Sickness :-) sillys.

But the flu, cold aggravating body aching stuffy head sickness that I really did not need!! AND THEN, AND THEN...I get home to find out that my son is  ... boom boom boom ...sick too.

Thank you Uncle K (you know who you are - giving you the stink eye man.) who brought this wonderful little present from NY, LOL, and passing on this Christmas gift, although if I could give it back I would, and i don't think anyone would blame me!! Hahahahaha

So it's chicken noodle soup for me, some cold/flu meds and off to bed, along with my puppy so I can hug him and cuddle him and get a good night's rest. :-)

 Sleep well all!!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas
Yes, I said Merry Christmas. I know some will say, why didn't she just put ' happy holidays?'. Well because I celebrate Christmas and being politically correct all the time is a pain in my butt. Especially when I like to say it plainly, but use the moderator in my head to speak politely
 So which ever holiday you celebrate, I'm hoping you have a grand one!!
I plan on spending time with family and eating lots of great food!
On the writing end...

The second manuscript for The Other Kin Series has been sent to my publisher - Whiskey Creek Press Torrid and I am currently working on the third manuscript for the series with the fourth plotting in the back of my head. LOL.

Again, Merry Christmas to all and read lots!!
Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you're home.  ~Carol Nelson
One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day.  Don't clean it up too quickly.  ~Andy Rooney

Quotes about Children

We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today. ~Stacia Tauscher

You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance. ~Franklin P. Jones

Children make your life important. ~Erma Bombeck

A child can ask questions that a wise man cannot answer. ~Author Unknown

Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.  ~Neil Postman, The Disappearance of Childhood (introduction), 1982

A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.  ~Bill Vaughan

 Children seldom misquote.  In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.  ~Author Unknown

   And Finally, I do believe this is the one I like the best...
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz 

Have a great Sunday and read lots!!

4 out of 4 Stars = AWESOME REVIEW for The Werewolf's Mate

The Werewolf's Mate has everything it takes for a fun and sexy read. It has hunky Lyken, sexy vampires, and bad-ass fairies all living together in peace until an ancient evil threatens not only their town but their very souls Now, an outcast has returned to save them all - and to claim the man she still loves. 

I'm a big fan of the paranormal genre and of shifter stories in general. That being said, it was the heroine that stole the thunder in this short story. Kala was one kick-ass Fairy. She protected what was hers. That meant she was willing to go to the mat to defend her mate, her daughter and her town. I also liked the fact that instead of being a vindictive bitch, Kala came back to save the same people who had treated her so badly.

I must say that I was very impressed with the author's writing. The plot was very interesting. The storyline was consistent.

I enjoy the story more when I get to experience not only the POV of the heroine but that of the hero also.   
That being said, I still liked the story enough to look forward to a next entry in the series.
