Where’s the bus stop….

because I’m ready to get off this ride.  It has made me nothing but dizzy, tired, and downright ornery.

It has been a most intense month I can be certain.  Without delving too deep I can say that internal and external conflict have made things rather difficult to focus on my main agenda.  Not a day went by that it wasn’t filled with one extreme or another and everybody had a say in things whether I was a part of it or not.  So a damned if I did or damned if I didn’t kind of thing.  What makes it worse is that its hard to pull yourself out of something you tried to stay away from in the first place.  I’m the chosen lightning bolt apparently.  Family and friends have fallen ill, some have become better; some have unfortunately taken a turn for the worse, a friend of mine got engaged (woohoo!!!!!), and solemn anniversaries have passed (September 11th was also my deceased mother’s birthday), and all in total there are just good days and bad.  With the good ones I spread the energy into my writing and enjoying a day just as beautiful as this one.  With the bad, the bed calls, the mellow music plays and I can only hope I can pour some of it into my work.

Bad news in me geek world, I missed DragonCon once again.  One of these years, I swear I’m going to make it.

Some good news, for sure since i seem to have not kept those up to date like I should have, is that I had finally collected the funding needed to have Ares tested and they came out well enough, although we are keeping watch on certain levels. Considering he will be 11 in a few months he is doing well.  

Some other good news, my promotional days went off well and am getting some wonderful messages telling me their thoughts.  If those turned into reviews I would go through the roof!

As life keeps shooting its arrows in my direction, some even full of vile poison, I dodge the best I can.  So no fear.  I will sleep better once that nice new king size bed comes to my door tomorrow.  Oh I am so looking forward to some  great comfortable sleep.  It is definitely needed.

Oh my Gosh I can Breathe…almost

As some know, I have been very very busy.  I have been on the phone, researching, emailing, paying for things and all of the above daily.  It’s been a nightmare. The worst thing is that half my notebooks are in a box I’m going through withdraws so obviously I’m doing the best I can with my laptop.  

But today I get to breath, for maybe an hour or so, then back to what I was doing before.  I’m glad I have high energy, but by 8 I am passing out on the couch.  I hope all this ends soon, which it will.  Until then, I may have to hide behind stacks of clothes for quiet time.  Oh wait!!! I have a bottle of cherry vodka in the freezer….that just might do.

As of late, with everything I am doing, my technology rants keep going with a mixed message.  Thank goodness I get to use them but *#!@ at the same time I have to use them and no way around it. SO booooooooo.

On a good note, the Goodreads drawing is getting a great response and I have already had two successful e-book giveaways on twitter for my followers.  My Queen will live as long as someone has her story in their hands.
