I think Facebook needs to get a grip but that’s just me… 馃槇

Are you dressing up tonight? If so, tell all. If not, tell me your fave costume from your past. Alpha Man and I are going as … Mr. and Mrs. Incredible. There will be pics. Stay tuned…

What’s in the bag

I was at the grocery store yesterday when I knocked my purse off my cart, where it proceeded to dump itself across three checkout lanes. No worries, it was only 6:00 pm, which means the store was packed to the gills. And in my small town, that means it was packed with people who know me.

And now these people all know that I carry, I kid you not, 14 variations of chapstick and lipgloss, a package of Chip Ahoy cookies, and three different sets of Skullcandy headphones.

Because you never know when there’s going to be a cookie emergency or you lose an earbud off the headphones hanging around your neck…

The woman behind me handed me a sample packet of Midol. I told her it wasn’t mine, I wasn’t packing Midol that day. “Just in case,” she said with a meaningful, understanding look.

I took the Midol.

So here’s my question today. What’s in YOUR bag?

It’s here!!!!!

My latest release hits the shelves today and I don’t want you to cringe but … there’s a little bit of holiday in the book. Just a little bit! You can get over that it’s too early for me, right? You know the rules, keep an author employed, buy her book when she sweetly begs. 馃檪 So I introduce you to CHASING CHRISTMAS EVE.

If you’re new to my Heartbreaker Bay series, this book stands alone. If you’ve been reading along, then you’ll remember sexy, genius, slightly geeky billionaire Spence, right?

I thought that might jog your memory. :rose: Anyway, I’m sorry it’s so early but I promise that Spence and Colbie are so hot and so very funny that you won’t mind too much there’s a teeny, tiny bit of Christmas in the book…

Conversations

Yesterday I went out to breakfast for lunch (my favorite thing to do) with Alpha Man. As we were leaving, I slowed and stared at the huge bowl of candy at the hostess area. And then, outside, this conversation took place.

AM: Need a cold shower?

Me: What are you talking about?

AM: You were staring at that guy…

Me: What guy?

AM: The one that looks like he’d fit right in on one of your covers.

Me: There was a hot guy and I missed him?

AM: What were you looking at?

Me: The Kitkat bars in that bowl!

Alpha Man about busted a gut laughing. I’m still bummed I missed the hot guy. And how sad is it that my eyes honed in on the candy over said hot guy in the first place?????
