I’ve been trying to take a couple of days off to sort of get my bearings. Life was a little out of control, so since the kids are gone this week, I’ve been doing some regenerating. ;-)
Spa day yesterday with waxings, nails etc. Today I did spray tan. I’ve been eating right and reading a lot.
I’m telling you right now– Gena Showalter’s new series is going to pop like nobody’s business. It’s the Lords of the Underworld and begins with Darkest Night. I laughed. I cried, and I stayed up all night reading. I’m not kidding. I LOVE THESE BOOKS! BUT They should come with a damn warning. I’m serious. You cannot put them down. I was exhausted the next day. :-) The first book in the series comes out in May and YOU HAVE TO BUY IT!!!!
I also finally read Julie Kenner’s Demon’s are Forever. Loved it! Love this series. The book has been in a sack in the back of my car for months, and when I found it I sat down and devoured it.
Okay, now for a little serious biz. Most of you guys read my books. And you’ve probably noticed that things that are important to me empowerment of women, stopping child abuse, etc. end up in my books some how some way. One thing that was really bugging me two years ago when I wrote Charmed & Deadly, was what’s happening in the Congo. I just saw that HBO is doing something April 8, on what’s happening there and I’m grateful. I know the atrocities are tough for us to take, but we at least need to make people aware.
See, this is what makes me just a little bit crazy. One minute I can be talking about spray tans, the next atrocities around the globe. ;-) It’s what makes me me.
So I want to know a couple of things….
What causes are close to your heart?
What’s the nicest thing you’ve done for yourself in the last few weeks?
