Spotted My Book-WOO HOO!

Yep, it’s official, I’ve spotted OFF LIMITS in one of my local bookstores (Borders if you want to know which one.). It hasn’t hit the grocery stores yet. At least not the ones that I frequent, but I plan to keep looking. We took some photos because that’s what you do at these occasions. It still such an odd thing seeing a book on the shelves that you wrote. Truly surreal. I can’t imagine what I’m going to be like when RED hits the shelves. My guess is much tears and shouting will ensue. Not necessarily in that order. 😉

The editing is coming along slowly. I only managed twenty pages today. I really must push that ball faster, if I want to get this book turned in by Friday. And yes, I will have it turned in ontime, even if I have to pull all-nighters toward the end. I hope it doesn’t come to that though. :-O

The new website is coming along nicely. I’ve seen some teaser pages and really like what she’s done. Can’t wait to see the whole thing.

I’m looking forward to cooking class this Tuesday because we’re making bread. Yes, I’ll be rolling out the door in a carb coma for sure. *g*

I’m still a little bummed about cancelling RT because it’s turning out that I won’t get to see many of my friends this year because of it. We writers spend so much time alone that the occasional conference is all the socializing we get to do. So when it’s not there, it really hurts.

I picked up Mark Henry’s Happy Hour of the Damned today. Couldn’t resist a zombie story. Currently I’m reading Black Magic Woman by Justin Gustainis. Really enjoying the book so far. It’s got a real dark tone to it that I love.

  1. Congrats on the sighting! It’s so cool that it still excites you after several books. And I can’t wait to hear the recap from the bread-baking session. I’m always in search of the perfect bread, so those tips are appreciated.

  2. Echoing congrats on the sighting. I can imagine the feeling. And enjoy this week–nothing like the smell and taste of fresh-baked bread!

  3. Mmm, bread. Mmmm. And hooray for spotting your book! : D

    Zombies are fun. I just finished Dead Witch Walking, which I’ve had forever but wasn’t reading because I was working on witches. Finally said the hell with it and dived in. Now I need the rest of the series, STAT!

  4. Caryn, Thank you. 🙂 I’m not sure how excited I actually get (I don’t get excited by much.;), but there is that tiny thrill and then the oddness that follows. *ggg* It’s trippy. (wg) Yes, I’m really looking forward to the bread class. I love bread FAR too much. I will take lots of notes.

  5. Raine, Thanks! Like I said, it’s ‘real’ now. My mouth is watering just thinking about the bread. Yum.

  6. Charli, Thank you! I like zombies too. Kim Harrison is terrific. Great world-building and interesting characters.

  7. I actually bought Off Limits from Borders this weekend. I was surprised to see the March Harlequins out, so I snagged those on my To Buy list.

    Can’t wait to read it!!

  8. Hey Jordan! Congrats on your release and YES it IS in grocery stores. At least it was in mine the other day. Yey! 🙂


  9. Jana, Thank you! I really hope that you enjoy it. It’s a HUGE departure for me. Like you, I was surprised to see the March books out so early. I didn’t expect them to appear until at least this week. I have to grab Rhyannon Byrd’s new Nocturne. I loved her EC work. 🙂

  10. Thanks for letting me know, Patrice! My grocery store is a little behind. :/

  11. Congrats on the sighting! I’ll keep an eye for it in our local bookstores. Heh!

    Sorry to hear you had to cancel the RT convention. We’ll have to come up with something fun to do in the blogsphere for those who can’t attend. Hehehe!

  12. Jordan, congratulations on spotting your book. Is there any better feeling? And I LOVE zombies! Let us know what you think about the two you’re reading. I might have to go hunt them down myself. 🙂

  13. Tempest, Thanks! Yep, RT is a bummer. I do wish that I would’ve been able to keep it, but it was just too much. Very overwhelming. I’m sure we could come up with something fun. *g*

  14. Thank you, Delilah! 🙂 No, not really. *g* I’ll let you know about the books. I’m over halfway in the Black Magic Woman book and really enjoying it. It is different, but good. The Zombie book comes next. (wg)

  15. Congrats on the Blaze, Jordan!!! I’m so happy for you!

  16. Thanks Suzanne! 🙂

  17. I’ve been keeping an eye out for it, but I haven;t seen OFF LIMITS YET. Soon I know it will be in my greedy little hands though. 🙂

  18. Thanks Sasha! Let me know when you spot it. My guess is it’ll show after the release date 3/1. 🙂
