Mixed Bag

I’ve managed to finish my 121 pages of edits. One of my dear critique partners came up with a solution to a problem I was having with the manuscript. Bless her heart. I owe her SO many drinks. *g*

I picked up a book while I was at the bookstore the other day. Shocker, I know. I swear I’m like a kleptomaniac, except I pay for my purchases and the books don’t have to be shiny to catch my attention. (Shaking head) Anyhoo, I brought home ‘Working for the Devil’ by Lilith Saintcrow. I’m only on page 41, but I am enjoying the book so far. The more I read these types of books, the more I want to write them. They combine everything I love in a single story, action/adventure, a kick-ass heroine, a paranormal world, and a hot guy. (wg) What more could you ask for? 😉

  1. Great job on the edits!! Whoo Hooo.
    As for the klepto thing…I’m assuming it only happens with books??? *grin*

  2. Not many books are holding my attention lately. I’m looking for something new, so I might check this one out. *g* Too bad our local Borders doesn’t carry her books.

  3. I’m reading Keri Arthur’s Full Moon Rising. It’s wonderful. I’m only six chapters in but i can’t put it down!

  4. Sasha, Thanks! Yep, lol, it only happens with books. (wg)

  5. Silma, I’m sorry your bookstore sucks so bad. At least you can order things online.

  6. Vivi, I’ll have to check it out. 🙂

  7. I know exactly what you mean, Jordan. I’m something of a compulsive book buyer myself. 🙂 If my deadline wasn’t kicking my butt right now, I’d be off reading a good book 🙂

  8. My name is Eve and I’m a bookaholic. Hey look, it’s deja vu all over again …

    Yay on the edits!

    What more could I want … (snort, snicker)

    Oh goodness, I think I’m up way past my bedtime. Really, great about the edits.

  9. Tina, You don’t think that would stop me, do you? LOL!

  10. Thanks Eve! I think I’m going to get myself to bed too. I’m tired and I’d like to read, but first I’m going to watch CSI.

  11. Congrats on the edits, Jordan. 😉

  12. Thanks Raine! The inputting is going to keep me busy for a while.

  13. Jordan – Yeah, thank goodness for Barnes &! If it weren’t for it, I wouldn’t have survived it for 3 years after The BookShop closed and there were no other bookstores around. Too bad they no longer have their mastercard card. I used to get points for the money spent with them, which I could later redeem for vouchers to buy – what else? – more books. *g*

  14. Evil! I want that book! LOL.

  15. My favorite kind of books too, Jordan. I can’t seem to resist them. I need to get Working For the Devil since everyone seems to have read it but me *g*.

    Good luck on the edits!

  16. Sounds like my kind of book! I need to make time to read more.

  17. I loved the advertisement I saw for that book in RT. If you get a chance, read the story behind it. 🙂 I LOVE kickass heroines so I know I’ll be picking this one up. Congrats on getting your edits done, Jordan!!

  18. Silma, Sorry that B & N took away your points. 😉 At least you still have access to all those lovely books. 🙂

  19. May, (wg)

  20. Jaci, Thanks! Yep, you’re missing out. So far it’s entertaining.

  21. Tess, Don’t we all? (shaking head)

  22. Thanks Patrice! I’ll have to check out the story behind the book. I saw the ad, but only scanned it. My bad? 😉

  23. Is there such a thing as online kleptomany? Because I purchase a lot more books from than my bank account allows.

  24. Gabriele, I think as long as the purchase involves books you’re covered. *ggg*
