Greetings! Love the idea of the covers all being alike except with different colors.

By Anonymous Jackie, at 2:29 PM  

Just checking in to see what's new. The books sound interesting and I like the covers also

Writing historicals

I'm working on a historical. Betrayal of the Betrothed. I think I mentioned it before. It's already won an award.

Or, maybe I should have said, I would be writing on it if I didn't have every interruption in the world. Emails galore, phone calls.

And cookies. I'm baking toll house chocolate chip cookies and have to get up every ten minutes. I had the whim last night. I used to bake all the time, but have gotten out of the habit now that three of my five kids are out of the house. The other two, and my husband, won't know how to act when they see these. I made some normal sized ones and then a few palm sized ones. Monster cookies for the monsters. hehehe

I always use real butter and like real vanilla too, so they are pretty tasty.

I'm typing this while being on phone (for 45 minutes now). Someone calling me, wanting to talk about getting Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I don't love those. They have too much icing. Is it politically incorrect to admit I don't like Krispy Kreme doughnuts?

I gotta go get busy. Catch ya later!

My husband doesn't like Krispy Kremes either. He'll eat them to be polite if someone has them and is going on and on about them but he doesn't think they're all that special. He says that if they're warm they're okay but if not they taste too...something he can't define. Maybe, like you, it's the icing. For me, I don't love or hate them but I don't get the hype. So you're not alone on that one.

Krispy Kremes are absolutely disgusting! Way too sweet, way too much sugar/icing. So, I agree with you. lol

I love writing historicals. :) "Kiernan's Curse" and "Devon's Wish" have both won awards at OCWI. I'll see how they do at OWFI in May. :) I need to be working on "Benen's Burden," but he's not urgent enough yet, I guess. lol

Gotta love redneck humor

Bubba & Earl


Two rednecks, Bubba and Earl, were driving down the road
drinking a couple of bottles of Miller Lite.

The passenger, Bubba, said, "Lookey thar up ahead, Earl, it's a
dadgum police roadblock!! We're gonna get busted fer drinkin' these here
beers!"

"Don't worry, Bubba," Earl said. "We'll just pull over and finish
drinkin' these beers then peel off the label and stick it on our
foreheads, then throw the bottles under the seat."

"What fer?" asked Bubba.

"Just let me do the talkin', OK?" said Earl.

Well, they finished their beers, threw the empties out of sight & put
labels on each of their foreheads.

When they reached the roadblock, the sheriff said, "Howdy boys, ya'll
been drinkin'?"

"No sir," said Earl while pointing at the Miller Lite labels... "Me
and Bubba's on the Patch."

Writing historical today

To the tune of Buck Cherry's SORRY over and over again, I'm writing historical romance, circa 1346 France. My hero's sustained a head wound. He's not exactly thinking clear.

Perhaps that's why he's thinking about sex, and regretting that he didn't take the virgin living in his house when he had the chance.

His name is Jean. (Szon) The Marquis Jean Paul Le Chaluner. (Shall-ooh-nay) Doesn't that have a ring to it?

He's thinking about a girl named Lysanne--but that's just because he needs another blow to the head--and to meet Natalia, an Italian beauty that is really gonna make him hurt.

You people are gonna love this story, I think. Twisted affections. Lots of ins and outs. (Three books in this series. Two already started.)

The one I'm writing now is titled Betrayal of the Betrothed and it's already won an award.

14th century France -- oh la la! lol

I love the title and it sounds intriguing just the little bit you've described. Great character names, too. :)

By Blogger Jen, at 10:30 AM  

OK, that's going to be a good one! Can't go wrong with a name like that and France as a setting. :)

Don't forget about possible side-effects of head injuries -- blurred vision, memory loss, seizures... Yeah, I was mean to poor Kiernan. lol It got 'im Maeve though. :)

What do you like?

I've had this blog for awhile now and I've gone in spurts (stop thinking about sex for a minute please!) where I talked about sex (okay, go ahead an think about sex, I guess I can't put two sentences together without innuendo or blatancy.)

I've also talked about family drama, given excerpts, talked about what I'm writing on, and doing outside of the professional field. I've given rants on more than one subject and posted about health, diet, and vitamins, etc. And I've posted jokes and pictures that I thought were funny, and given you some links to go check out.

What do you, personally, want to see more of?

All of the above? lol

Seriously, I think it's whatever you want to do. :)

Is that a cop-out or what? I don't mean it to be, though.

By Blogger Jen, at 7:21 AM  

I think it's all good: writing stuff, family stuff, opinions, whatever you have on your mind at the time.

How smart is your right foot?

THE WORLD AND BLOGGER ARE MESSED UP. I CANNOT SEEM TO GET A TITLE TO POST THIS WEEK. TOOK me several times to get a title on this one. Geez.

Jennifer Nipps sent this to me via email. It is too funny. (Yes. We have already determined that I am too easily amused.)

HOW SMART IS YOUR RIGHT FOOT???

Just try this. It is from an orthopedic surgeon............

This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't. It's preprogrammed in your brain!

1. WITHOUT anyone watching you they will think you are off your tree...) and while sitting where you are at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction.!!!!!!!!!

I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it!

You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.

Send it to your buddies to frustrate them too.

I must be easily amused too, then. :)

However, I will NOT admit to how many times I tried that. lol.

Fake Monkey wins talent contest!

Okay. This is just too funny. Brits Got Talent--and it's a fake monkey.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqRd_4wY8hs

We've all wondered what Sam Cowell (spelling?) really likes. Now we know. He thinks monkeys are funny.

This sparked a question from me...goats and monkeys always make people laugh. Any other animals do that for you? My daughter said a Platypus did, just because the name is fun to say. I thought maybe a beaver would make most people laugh--because of the sexual connotations.

And, of course, we have a beaver in our front yard these days. (Yes. Remember, I live in the sticks, a haunted friggin' hollow in the Ozarks.) And it is a big honkin' beaver, too.
