**This week, my youngest and I, have been sick. He had fever, chills, and congested while I had the "nothing will stay down" side of it. He feels better today! (yay!!!) 
Since Sunday, I've been living on popsicles and crackers, because hardly anything agreed with me, but yesterday I was finally able to have a meal. (yay again!)

**Haven't been able to continue with revise because of the above, but lots of thoughts have been brewing so I think that's something to celebrate, too!

**Three of my boys have basketball games tomorrow. Can't wait to see them hoop it up! :D

What celebrations do you have for the week?

Cover Reveal for Catherine Peace's Complete Me


I met Catherine Peace on QT around five years ago. While I was shy and lurked about, she was bubbly and befriended me with open arms. She's an amazing writer and friend. I'm excited to help in her cover reveal for Complete Me designed by her fellow Decadent Publishing author Mina Carter.
Congrats, Lex! You rock!



Blurb:
Out of the dating game for five years, best-selling romance author Claire Ergleston is convinced that writing out the romances she’s always wanted is a lot safer than trying in real life. Then she receives the news that she’s been signed up for a 1Night Stand date “to give her something to talk about in interviews.” Nothing worse than a romance author with no romance to pick apart.

Former rock star Ty Krause has let his past rule him for almost a decade. Unable to let the former love of his life go for good, he spends his days writing passable songs for a British boy band and his nights wishing he had the balls to say goodbye. In a last ditch effort, he signs up for 1Night Stand, thinking that a night of no-strings-attached sex will help him cut the other strings holding him back.

When the two meet, their instant attraction and connection muddy the waters a little too much. Will past hurts hold them back from each other, or will they be able to move forward and live out their dreams together?

Express Yourself - Chores


It's EYM time ... the weekly meme that I co-host with Dani. Each week, we come up with a question/topic of some sort for other bloggers to share. Please join us HERE!

This weeks topic:  Name a chore you dislike, and one you love to do.




**Washing dishes by hand is not my favorite thing, but I have no choice because our dishwasher took a crap this summer. And with money being tight and me being picky on which one I want, I'm not running out to buy a new one. So, I will continue to wash by hand until I find the one I want, and when enough money is saved up.

**My favorite chore would be laundry... especially separating and folding. With six of us, it piles up, but for some reason, I don't mind. It calms me. When my boys are grown, I won't have so much laundry, and I'll miss it (and them) terribly. 

What about you? Do you have a chore you love or dislike?

*One of my critique partners books came out on Monday. Laurelin Paige's Forever With You. I love this series!

*Last week, on a windy and snowy day, my license, debit card, shopping list, and coupons flew out of my hand in the grocery store parking lot. I scrambled to pick everything up, but never found my license. I ordered a new one, but I'm praying that a good soul will turn in/mail my license. That may not seem like something to celebrate... so what am I celebrating with this? That I was, at least, able to recover my card! 

*I'm doing a revise on one of my projects. This time, it feels right. Like, these suggestions and changes are for the best, and it's what is needed to make this story shine.

Laurelin Paige's Forever With You available NOW


I'm happy to announce that one of my amazing CP's has a book release today....

Laurelin Paige's Forever With You!!!




Alayna Withers relationship with Hudson Pierce has tested both her and his ability to trust. They decide that the only way they can move forward together is with open doors and transparency. It won’t be easy for the scarred lovers, but they’re committed to each other more now than ever. Alayna, in particular, has grown through their trials, and has emerged more confident and faithful to the man she loves. 

But while the pair is focused on the future, their past shows up again to threaten their fragile bond. Promises that were made are broken, and Alayna learns that Hudson still has very potent secrets—secrets that will tear them both apart. As much as she feels for him, her ability to forgive and forget is tested beyond her limits. 


Even though she found the only man who could fix her, a forever with Hudson seems more and more out of reach. 

Purchase Links:


The Fixed Trilogy is my favorite series. Laurelin can write her bootie off, especially when it comes to romance and plot twists. 
Only a select few books have made me cry. Sure, I'm a crier when it comes to certain things, but books? It's hard to make me shed a tear. But Forever With You... I sobbed. TWICE. Laurelin took my heart, shook it around a bit, tossed it across the room. Then picked it up and put the pieces together again, all the while making me crave more. That, friends, is brilliant writing. 

A song that I dub Hudson and Alayna's song is, of course, from my fave band, Maroon 5.
