After much consideration, I have decided to break the Series "Elemental Eden" into a six part Novella. That will be followed by even more thrills. I will have more information on the release of the first book Eden in Ice soon!

It's going to be a ghost town around my blog and twitter pages for a few days while I work on some re-writes.  I'm ready for the showdown, six guns are blazing!

Last night we had a birthday party for my husband, someone asked how old he was, sparking an entire conversation about the crazy parties we have planned through the years. There was the going away party for his hair when he turned 30, the everything's falling out of place party for my 30th, the look who's back in diapers party on his 40th. There are more... I put on a going grey party, and older than dirt party among others.

He is already planning thr end of the world party for my 40th birthday the day after the world is supposed to end DEC 21, 2012. I really don't think it would be that bad of a deal if the world ended that day. I would never have to turn 40 on December 22, but they have been wrong about theses things before....soooo who knows

From the blog - I'd rather be writing

From the Blog I'd rather be writing
Are you a night writer? Does your muse have a favourite time to come alive?

My comment:
I have been known to write complete chapters in my sleep. Especially if I have something on my mind when I go to bed. I just can’t seem to rest until I get it out of my head. So I wake up to these scribbled blotches of text that..maybe..sorta…look like words. It’s a big deal for me to sit down and figure out what I wrote before I can start my day. I get so excited about it that my husband bought me a recorder, now I can talk in my sleep too & truthfully I have gotten some great ideas from my notes. Now, I keep a notebook in the night stand all the time and my voice recorder in my bra all day. Just in case!

After I posted that comment, it reminded of an old TV sitcom called Night Court. There was an episode that always stood out in my mind as the best show ever-

There is a beautiful woman that everyone called the man eating lawyer, the entire cast kept their distance seemingly afraid of being devoured. She was overheard talking to "someone" in the bathroom about having her way with the judge, who's character in the show seemed to be more spineless than desirable. The girl talk spread like wildfire until the lurch like bailiff encouraged the judge to go for it.

It was the shock of the evening to find out she was secretly writing Romance novels. Her conversation had been between her and a tape recorder; she had no interest in the judge and in the end became the vulnerable one... now that he knew her secret. He could hardly believe a woman that was all business, could have a soft side. 

Personally, I think she should have scared him into keeping her secret or else, but that's just me ~

Wow, what a day! You never know what bridge your going to be faced with next. I have had my book named since the beginning; It was a "sure thing" or so I thought. C'est la vie, I was able to take the copyright conflict and twist it in my favor. Now I have a temporary copyright in place while I file the paperwork on the registered copyright Not even the google cloud find a match to the new names so I'm thinking this one will work!

If your not sure about how copyright laws effect you be sure and check these sites, and don't wait like I did. If I had sent in the copyright paperwork when I first came up with the name I would have been safe with the old titles. I waited... someone wrote a song and registered a copyright who new??

Here goes nothing... New editor.... Halloween release date (maybe a few days before or after) on Amazon assuming we can all agree. And I here I am; re-arranging chapters, ugh what was I thinking?

Wow! This is it; the very first post for my official writers blog. After working on my book for so long, it hardly seems like the beginning. I still have so much marketing to get done.

Work in progress is a 3 part YA Paranormal Drama.
