    Monday Music

    What’s Jack up to? The Jackster is doing well. His rash is getting better and his ears are too, though he’s not enjoying taking his meds for both. I know he’s on the mend because his appetite is back and a person can’t make it near the kitchen and his treats without him fast on their heels. Go Jack.

    I’m still busy with NaNo writing. The words are drip, drip, dripping through slowly and it’s tough to find the time I’d like. At the end of the day I find myself wishing I had 3 or 4 more hours where I was feeling alert and creative to just sit write and be. But, um, no. Not gonna happen unless I say buh-bye to the few hours sleep I do get and if I did that who knows what hot messery I’d wake up too. Probably a page full of zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz’s. Hmm would they count towards my word count? Probably not.
    That said no long post from me today. Or any day for the rest of this month. Will you be back? While I’m in NaNo land please enjoy a little surprising Monday music from Michael Buble and the DD (so not her usual taste). Thanks DD.


    P.S. Have you check out Booksquawk yet? Why not? All the cool kids are doing it.

    Book Squawking

    What’s Jack up to? Jack had a calm and, I think for a dog, pleasant weekend this weekend. Knowing Jack he thought it was a bore. The weather was nice, so decent walks and the nights were cool, so good sleep. That plus food and treats what more could he want? With Jack-trouble.

    Today I’m happy to introduce you to a new blog called Booksquawk. It’s a writer’s book review blog and I’m honored to be one of the contributors. The tagline for the blog is: really good book reviews by professional writers.
    Now that for me is humbling. Really good? Hmm… I’m not so sure. Now I’m new to this review game, but, um, let’s just see how it goes. Shall we?
    And as for the professional writer part… I don’t think I’ve been a professional since my fashionista days and I sometimes had to wear heels and even then it was kinda loosey goosey. But hey, I am writing and I do want it to be my profession so, well, I guess that counts. Hey, they called me. I don’t know who did their background checks.
    Either way the cool thing about Booksquawk is that all different genres will be represented since the contributing writers have such varied tastes (yeah, expect some romance from me, yay!).
    So there is lots to look forward to and you may find a new favorite author.

    Please stop by Booksquawk here and stop by often because new reviews are popping up all the time. Heck, if you’re feeling fancy become a follower and get a big cyber type smooch from me! Thanks.
