Adventure and Romance in one

Looks like I’ve done nothing but read in the last few weeks.

WHAT I READ SINCE LAST TIME:  An Invitation to Scandal by Kelly Boyce.  The Disappeared by Kristine Kathryn Rusch.  Merchanter’s Luck by C. J. Cherryh. Double Dexter by Jeff Lindsay.  Mercenary Instinct by Ruby Lionsdrake.  Number the Stars by Lois Lowry.

I did more.

In addition to all the reading, I binge-watched season two of American Horror Story (Asylum), got BABY SINGS THE BOOS up and ready for CreateSpace trade paperback publication, got the car maintained, got Merry Maids fired (actually they fired us, didn’t want to come this far from home base), and I’ve almost finished the first draft or rough draft or the non-critical brain version of my next book THE CIMARRON BRIDE. Next up will be a science fiction novel THE GOODALL MUTINY. And then the third in the Boo Done It mysteries CHECKING OUT THE DEAD DUDE. And I hope for a fourth novel this year, another short romance, THE TEXICAN BRIDE. I’m also deep into an online Dean Wesley Smith writing workshop that’s downright fun (so far).

What I haven’t done is eat properly or get any exercise. Taking the golf cart out for a ride doesn’t count as exercise. Not even in Texas.

The armadillo didn’t see his shadow on groundhog day. I think our short (very short) winter in Texas is almost over. Bluebonnet driving trips are just around the corner. Texas highways during the Spring are fantastic things to behold. People stop on the shoulders and walk out into rattlesnake-infested wildflower fields just to get a great selfie.

These are poppies. Bluebonnets are sort of purple.
