It’s my birthday! It’s my birthday! I’m gonna… well you know the rest and honestly, my partying days have pretty much fizzled out. But it is my birthday today and I’m somewhat celebrating as much as a woman of a certain age, with kids of a certain age, who enjoys TV and her own company way more than nights out a da club does.
In other news as part of my birthday celebration I’ve put together a couple of great things.
My novel THREADS OF DESIRE is FREE for a limited time. But don’t sleep, this one will not last long.

THREADS OF DESIRE!
Have a super June!
It’s amazing how 22 years can seem like the blink of an eye to one, but to another be a lifetime. So many changes both seen and unseen. So many moments, lots of them I wish I could go back to, rewind, look back, slow down even or at least live again, this time though really enjoying and savoring each moment. If only they had that type of machine for mothers wishing to turn back time. If only we really knew how fast it would all go.
All that melancholy aside, I’m so happy for you and proud of you both on this day. And all I truly wish for you is not what I wish for myself, but what I’ve wished for you each year, each day, since you’ve been born which is for God to keep you safe, for you to fulfill your dreams, have all the joy your hearts can handle and shine brightly like the king and queen you were born to be.
I can speak for both me and your dad here when I say, we love you both with all our hearts.
Happy 22nd Birthday!
Mom & Dad and Jack too
Please join me in wishing a very happy birthday to the sweetest little bad dog I know, Jack! It was his birthday yesterday and he got quite a few new toys that he destroyed faster than a zombie on The Walking Dead.
SMH it’s so very Jack. 9 years and he hasn’t slowed down yet.
Love you Jackster! Thanks for keeping me on my toes.
Tomorrow is my birthday. Hold the applause please. Like for realz, I’m getting in the age range where I’d kinda like to not blow horns or wave banners, but still me being well… me, I can’t just let the day go by. So I thought I’d have a little celebration by sharing the birthday love and having a giveaway instead.
When I was at Book Expo I was able to get a signed ARC from one of my favorite bloggers and now come to find out she’s a fellow June birthday girl and Gemini, The Smart Bitch herself Sarah Wendell!
Sarah signed an advanced reader copy of her new book:
EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT LOVE I LEARNED FROM ROMANCE NOVELS.
The book is not due out until October 2011 but you can win a signed copy here now!
Here is a bit about the book straight from Sarah’s site:
“Combining the wisdom and wit of romance readers and authors, this book puts to rest the idea that romances create unrealistic expectations of love, relationships, and sex. Romances can teach us about finding the ideal partner, weathering conflict, discovering our preferences, and, most of all, about loving and appreciating ourselves.”
Just leave a comment and I will announce the winner Monday!
You can visit Sarah at her site and find out about pre-ordering here.
What’s Jack up to? Well he’s gotten into something (maybe it’s all the tissue?) so he’s feeling a little low and quiet today. Let’s see how long it lasts. Maybe until 10:00? I hope he’s back to his old self soon.
Happy Monday and Welcome June!
It’s my birthday month! The month I love and loathe the most. I put way too much pressure on June. I guess too much pressure on myself in June. But we’ll save that for another post, another day…
So it’s back to the grind. I had a pretty decent weekend. It started really strong. I could not resist going to see Sex And The City on Friday night even though I’m on a writing deadline the darn movie was calling me and apparently every other woman in Westchester county, and from the strong box office, the country. It was packed!
But, I had a ball! It was an estrogen fest in that theater with woman ranging from 20-60 all smiling and happily decked out in their best accessories at our local theater. The thought of all the stressed men ordering pizza with children pulling at their pants legs just made me smile.
It was a gab-fest in the theater until the lights went down and the first familiar tunes of the SATC theme started then there was actual applause. Fancy that! I’m telling you it was like we were all hungry for a sweeter simpler time, a time when we all had hope, better abs and higher breasts!
To me, despite what the New York Times says, the movie did not disappoint. Sure it could have been better in spots but so what. So could anything. I had a a blast! Loved it!
See it with friends. See it with Fans. See it with Fashionistas!
Have fun. Don’t take it too seriously. It’s not about that. It’s about, friends, family and LOVE!
The Fashions were fab-u-lous. I could not stop grinning during a certain fashion sequence. Sigh. What a geek I am! I also just loved the use of white and bright color. Sort of a pop art splash/clash thing going on.
Fans of the show will be glad to know that all the old faves are back and the characters are true to form. I walked away loving Charlotte in this movie. There were some laugh out loud scenes with her.
I can’t wait for it to come on video so I can go over the fashions again and again. Just delicious. Yum!
Then on Saturday I was up bright and early of our church’s annual AIDS walk-a-thon. Thank goodness we didn’t get rained out. We had a nice crowd for a little walk though Mount Vernon. Thanks to our kindly police escorts and to the drivers that we annoyed while holding up traffic. It was for a very important cause. It’s everyone’s issue. Thanks so all my friends for their pledges of support!
Oh, and for you writers and folks of faith and even those of just a little hope check out this blog that writer, Trish Ryan has put up called forty days of faith.
Then it was all writing all the time and still is. I’m way into my new proposal and have to be all about that. Shh… must keep it under wraps. I will say this though. It’s H-O-T!
So… how was your weekend?
Wow, I have another writer friend who finaled in the Amazon Shorts Contest. Head on over and check out Kerri Mahon’s YA short: Much Ado About High School.
It’s a fun read with a cool Shakespeare theme.
And it’s a free download. If you like it, give it a review. The semi-finalists will be based on customer reviews.
Happy 9th Birthday to my beautiful God-daughter Lemiah!
Have a wonderful day!
