Hello Dixie Darlings!
So, I suck at social media. There, I said it.
I’ve realized that I haven’t been reaching out to y’all as much as I want to. In an effort to connect with readers and other writers, I’m going to be more present on social media channels. You’ll be seeing some changes in the upcoming months.
One of those is a personal monthly blog post. Since I love the written word so much, this seemed like a natural choice. I was the girl in school who got straight A’s in English class and always won the spelling bee. Except for once, but we won’t talk about that, cause I hold a grudge.
So, I’m writing this at 4:30 in the morning. I’m not a morning person by any means, but I’m much more productive if I can get my ass out of bed by 5 am. So here I am, with a coffee mug as big as my head, typing away. And yes, it’s a Christmas one, but it’s the right size! Hey. At least I didn’t leave my tree up.
What’s on my Kindle
So, this month I’m reading High Voltage by the amazing Karen Marie Moning, and I’m giving Trickery a try. I haven’t started Trickery yet, but I’ll let you know how it goes. It’s one of those reverse harem books.
I’ve been reading KMM’s Fever series for the past 12 years. High Voltage is about Dani and the lethal yet urbane, Ryodan. I stayed up until midnight reading it; the book was that good. Because I’m not the night owl, I used to be.
I’ve found that I read more non-fiction than fiction since I started writing professionally. I’m not sure why. Maybe I get my daily fix of fiction by writing?
Oh, and yes, I’ve got two Kindles. Priorities.
So this is one of my fur babies, Moon, who has never met a box he didn’t like. I rescued him from a Dumpster. I can’t believe someone threw him away like garbage. He was barely a pound, covered in filth, and crying. So, I took him to the vet that day, and he slowly got better.
And now, he’s 14 pounds and spoiled rotten. Moon is my writing buddy. I’ve got an L shaped desk, and he cuddles beside me while I’m banging out my 4,000 words a day.
Moon is a mixed blessing. He’s 50% snuggly and soothing, and 50% wild child. He loves to put his toy mice in my shoes, knock stuff off shelves (apparently it’s entertaining?), and demand food at two in the morning. All I can say is, he’s lucky he’s so damn cute.
So, I love owls. You’ll find them all over my apartment. I’m not sure why they are so appealing to me. Maybe it’s the association with wisdom? I’ve got mugs, knick-knacks, necklaces, you name it.
Well, that’s all for this month. I’ll catch you again in April. Look for Black and White on April 16th. So far, I’m loving King’s book. He’s such a big softie.
And, oh yeah, I love ya like biscuits and gravy…
