Mornings and other unnatural events…

Oh mornings, the smell of fresh grass, the chirping of the birds, the quiet stillness that blankets the land, the blast furnace of heat that hits you in the face when you step outside.

Yes, that’s what happens when you walk out your front door starting in the month of May in the Southwest. Of course, in the morning it’s a tad cooler than say eleven o’clock, but you only have about an hour or two window of opportunity to enjoy the temperature, before it climbs to miserable.

When I was flying for a living, I always wondered why I saw so many people jogging at four in the morning. Now I know. It’s the only time it’s cool enough to do so. Can you tell I’m not looking forward to summer?

I’m going to have to make peace with mornings if I want to get outside into the big ‘blue’ room. This is a difficult prospect for a NON-morning person. It feels downright unnatural.

Troy Opens Today!

Is anyone else looking forward to seeing this movie? It looks absolutely massive in scope. I can’t wait to see what aspects of the story they keep and what gets tossed out. I have my fingers crossed they’ve created a good story to go along with the ‘visual’ appeal. Now off to the movies.

Can’t Get That Song Out Of My Head

I keep hearing the ‘All Star’ song from the Shrek soundtrack running through my head. Talk about effective marketing. I’ve only seen the preview a couple of times. All that glitters is gold, stop it, stop it, stop it! It’s like the ‘It’s a Small World’ song that Disney bludgeons you with on that ride. You hear it once and it’s stuck to your brain like super glue. Until next time, enjoy the songs. 😉

Brava Author Chat and Other Quiet Events…

Well I went to the Brava Author chat tonight. Not that I don’t like the attention, but I was the only Brava author there. To make a slow night worse, I kept getting booted off the chat site, until I finally gave up. (Sigh) Oh well, there’s always next month.

What’s New!

I went to see Van Helsing last night. It was enjoyable enough. A bit over the top. The biggest hitch I see about the film is the choices the writer made about one of the main characters. I won’t go into detail, because I don’t want to spoil the movie for those who haven’t seen it yet. Tomorrow we’re off to see Kill Bill 2. Next up will be Troy and Shrek 2.

I have a release date for my second Kensington Brava novella. It’ll come out in April 2005. I’ve been given a tentative title, but can’t announce it until it’s been confirmed. I will keep you posted. In the meantime, please check out the newly added unedited excerpt on my Books page.

Van Helsing is Here

Picture me jumping up and down like a little kid here. I am so excited to see this movie. My fingers and toes are crossed that my dh can get off work in time for us to catch the early show.

I received good news today. My editor likes my hypnosis story and it’ll be coming out in April of next year. Yeah!
