It's Coming! It's Coming!

The Symbolon Series Book 2 cover reveal is coming soon! I worked once again with the amazingly-talented team at Berto Designs in Australia and, I must say, the end product is far more beautiful than I imagined. And I can imagine big, okay? Ha! Thanks to all of you for reading and following. I love you guys!

Peace, Love, and Junior Mints,

The Week in Photos - 3/4-3/12

Yeah, yeah. I know this is more than a week, but I couldn't leave out Geek Fair and then I took one of my wee man climbing stuff he wasn't supposed to climb in Lowe's. Which is pretty much everything, right? I mean, they won't even let you on the ladders. What if I need to see over all the aisles? You didn't think about that, did you, Mr. Blue Vested Lowe's Man? No. You only think of yourself.


Fantasy author Lela Robichaux and I had a fantastic time at the Shreveport-Bossier Geek Fair on Saturday, March 4. We bought art, soap, cupcakes and too much coffee. Oh! And the true icing on the cake (or cupcake, as it were...) was meeting all the amazing readers who not only bought books but actually CAME UP AND TALKED TO US! It was absolute insanity with sprinkles and unicorn dust on top. We chatted about books and authors and Game of Thrones, because, hello...July, are you here yet?

And then, as always, I got silly with SnapChat, because I'm a sucker for nutty filters. It's like trying on Halloween costumes all year long. Sigh...Halloween. Does anyone else pine for October like I do?

I never can remember why we go to Lowe's, but it's one of my husband's favorite stores, second only to Best Buy. When we're there, the only stuff I find even remotely interesting are the lights and ceiling fans, which is rather silly, because I don't need either. I imagine this is how he feels when he trudges behind me into Barnes & Noble or Ulta. Like...what do I do here? Should I just sit on the floor and catch a nap or something?

At least the Little Man had fun. Since he doesn't know what's what in Lowe's, either, he just climbs stuff. "Mommy, take my picture!"

Peace, Love, and Junior Mints and here's to a bright new week!

The Week in Photos

My Five-Year-Old's Depiction of Him in Mommy's Tummy

Thought I'd try something different, as well as stick to my New Year's Resolution to take more photos. I didn't do so well over the past few days, but hopefully content will improve as I go along. It's been an interesting week, busy preparing for a book signing (March 4!) and also implementing a solid workout schedule. Maybe it's cliche, but, man, I didn't realize how out of shape I was, until I started doing crunches--I mean...REAL crunches--again! Yeesh! But I've slept better at night and I think I may even have more energy. Score!

Have I ever mentioned how addicted I am to SnapChat? Addiction may be a little strong. I can put it down, after all. But the filters! OH the filters! Even my kid loves it. Plus, the sparkles make everything look better. And who doesn't love a bunny nose?

While going through rewrites, I usually put Friends on. Now, let's be honest, if you know me, you know I'm a 90's girl. So, yeah, Friends is my...jam? Whatever. I can talk to you in straight Friends quotes, okay? And, yes, Netflix totally passes judgment on me. The Emma Bridgewater catalog came in this week, too, but all I can ever do is drool, because shipping is ridiculous! Almost as much as whatever product you're ordering--no lie. The Mum mug may be worth it, though. As for Avril...no idea. I think maybe YouTube suggested I watch one of her concerts and, boom, there I was and now here I am, listening to every album she ever cut. SO MUCH FOR MY HAPPY ENDING.

The hubs made this amazing banner stand out of PVC pipe. Gotta tell ya...it's pretty hot seeing your book cover THIS big (4'X6'). I totally hope people wanna do cameos beside it at the Shreveport-Bossier Geek Fair, a la red-carpet style. At least I'll have fun posing with my girl, Scylla. Love you guys!

Peace, Love, Junior Mints, yadda yadda yadda...
