Success and Failure

My goal was to publish 3 short stories this month and I’ve utterly failed. I have one written, and it’s not ready for publishing. But…

I did successfully complete my first Camp NaNoWriMo! I wrote the first draft of “The Vampire’s Prey.” My first full length novel involves a royal lycan and her sexy vampire mate.

What I learned from this month is:
1. Novels are hard to write
2. Writing is hard to write
3. I should own stock in Coca-cola.
4. Don’t commit to a publish date unless you have completed the first draft.
5. If I type too much my fingers don’t like me.
6. Joe Manganiello is hot
7. I already new number 6 and 3.
8. I have the best readers in the world! Thanks for putting up with my crazy antics.

Also, I was going through a “About Me” crisis and updated the whole “About” page. Do I sound as weird as I think I do? 🙂

Tasty Tuesday Treat 2 for 1

It’s Tasty Tuesday with a little two for one. 🙂 I couldn’t decide which I liked better. They are essentially the same picture except one has been involved in some very strenuous activity. hint hint. wink wink. So I’m calling them my before and after pictures.

Before:
Part of a man's body on a dark blue background

After:
Part of a wet man's body on a gray background

Happy Tuesday!

Wishing I was at RWA 2014

Here’s why I wish I was at Romance Writers of America Conference in San Antonio right now:

1. Cowboys
2. Smore’s Bar

3. Bella Andre, Barbara Freethy, and Courtney Milan are all giving workshops on self-publishing!
4. Sylvia Day, Nalini Singh, Lori Wilde, Elizabeth Hoyt, Sabrina Jeffries, etc… all in one place!
5. Cowboys
6. Banana Split – Oh Harlequin how you make me drool…

7. Great advice like…

Next year please please please.
Okay I’m done now, back to writing.

Tasty Tuesday Treat and Poll

I go through a lot of stock photos every day. A LOT. Some pictures really speak to me and this tasty guy said one particular word… VAMPIRE. What do y’all think? Is this guy a vampire? Or just a HOT tuesday treat?

Also keep voting on my poll…

Thanks and Happy Tuesday!
