    How I Love Your Scandalous Heart …

    How much do I heart as well as admire the folks over at abc and Shondaland?  All you long time followers and especially twitter friends know I’m a TV fanatic so this probably comes as no surprise. Don’t ask me about state’s capitals, but quiz me on Real Housewives trivia and I’m on it.

    That said, I am discerning when it comes to my TV watching and to quote the lyrical poets of Three 6 Mafia, “It’s hard out here for a pimp.” I don’t give my loyalty or my time frivolously and when I’m in, I’m ride or die. So I’m giving huge props and much respect to the Shondaland family for the kindness that they gave when sending out such lovely thank you gifts to some loyal watching, tweeting and recapping fans (check my latest recap over on Heroes and Heartbreakers). Seriously, in this society where you don’t always get a thank you for what you do (and Scandal is so great I’d be shouting about it regardless of the thanks) I was truly touched to receive such a thoughtful package.


    How cool is this? And there’s a copy of Gone Girl. How did they know I’m the only person in the world that hasn’t read the book yet. I’m fixing that now!


    These coasters are everything!

    So here’s my thank you back abc and Shondaland. I can’t wait until the next #TGIT. I’ll see you all on twitter. Look me up @kwanawrites 🙂


    Olivia popcorn. I die. No way, Jack move along doggie!


    All the best,

    Friday Hangover and a Winner!

    Happy Friday! I hope you all had a good night last night with plenty of treats and no tricks. Things started out slow over by me. I decorated the porch along with Jack who was without a costume this year but still feeling festive and we sat and waited.


    And waited some more. But once it got dark and my purple lights came up the kids really started to come out and it was quite a lot of fun answering the door in my Witch’s Hat. It started to drizzle around 8:45 which put an end to the Trick or Treaters wich was fine by me because it was  getting on time to settle in for the real Halloween scare with Scandal.

    Wow! It was so good. You can check out my recap for the week over at Heroes and Heartbreakers. I’d love to hear your comments.

    A big thank you to all who commented on the fab Lise Horton’s WORDS OF LUST interview. I’m so grateful to Lise for being here. Thanks to random number generator I have pulled a name for her book giveaway and the winner is Maria Ferrer! Congrats Maria! Lise will be in touch. And no worries if you didn’t win you can click here to buy your own copy of WORDS OF LUST.

    Have a great weekend!

    Babbling about Seduction and Thanks!

    I had the best day yesterday (thanks to everyone for all the well wishes here and on twitter and FB. It was amazing). I’m a little hung-over today from eating so much goodness last night. Sidebar: Calories do count on your birthday. Who knew? Today I’ll be trying my best to get my head back in gear in the real world and the writing life, but all I want to do is play with my fantastic birthday gift: My gorgeous new PEN camera (so new,  I still have packaging on)!



    I suspect for the rest of the summer I’ll be wandering around the city having my own Mika photography fantasies ala THROUGH THE LENS. This will be so much fun.

    But today it’s not all pretty pictures as I’m hanging over at Katie’s blog: Babbling About Books, and more talking Seduction’s Canvas and my favorite obsession Scandal! Please stop on by.


    All the best,

    Good Morning Heartache

    Good Day World. I’ve woken with a major migraine today and I’m trying to figure what brought it along. Could it be allergies, hormones, stress or could it be just be and my awful migraines or could it be something deeper like today being one of the most stressful days of the year doing that it’s the season finale of Scandal? Gah! & Wah! And Holey Moles Batman! Somebody Hold me!


    Have I already gotten myself worked up and into a state over the state over Olivia and Fitz and my impending withdrawal? Good thing that after today I’ll have to go cold turkey with my Scandal sobriety. Oh well, at least I have tonight and one last bender to live it up. As usual you can look for my recap on Heroes and Heartbreakers tomorrow and you can also see my past ones there too.

    Also tomorrow 5/17 I’m chatting with a great group off authors over at Coffee Time Romance and the subject is Coloring Outside The Lines. We will be taking questions, talking about our new projects and giving away prizes. Please stop on by and join in! Thanks!



    All the best,
