I hate February. It’s so dark and cold and for the shortest month, it seems to last forever. I always think…if I can just make it through, then hopefully the start of spring is on the other side.
This winter has been particularly blah for me because I got to used to going out walking last fall that being stuck in the house now is almost painful. But not as painful as the two falls I’ve already had on slippery sidewalks and so I am not even trying to venture out for some exercise. I’m entirely too large to be hitting the ground that fast and hard.
I’ve decided to join a gym. A real one. I belonged to Curves before but I suspect that I need a little more “push” than I was getting there and they are opening a Snap Fitness here in town. Now, if only I can manage to get a routine going that will help me without breaking me and please god, don’t let me die of embarrassment. My brother’s wonderful fiancée is going to join with me and maybe my mom too so at least I won’t be there all by myself all the time.
Now, on the writing front. I had to sign autographs yesterday…and it was weird. Dreamspinner sent me velum sheets to sign that will be put into the first 20 copies of the “Wrapped Up in Chains” paperback that will be going up for pre sale soon. They are doing the cover reveal today over on the Blog of Sid Love. Check it out later! https://www.facebook.com/groups/428135920611583/
I still can’t believe I’m gonna have a paperback…**giggles uncontrollably**…I can’t wait to hold it in my hand.
Also, yesterday my short Valentine story called “Breaking Cupid’s Curse” Went on sale at Torquere press so if you’re looking for something short, sweet and a little hot, check it out. It’s available on Amazon and at ARE as well.
My wolf-shifter WIP is coming along slowly but surely. I have a few people who have decided I need to be poked and prodded along a little more and so they are taking that task very seriously. And they’re right. Every time I get a case of “insecurity” I tend to fall off the writing wagon.
I’m now down to one job after 5 years of 7 days a week and I’m hoping the extra time will be beneficial to my writing. Also, I’m getting my first three-day weekend in 5 years this coming weekend…whatever shall I do?
And how about those Olympics! I’m glad to see Canada doing so well. I’m not watching the events and I think Putin should be kicked in the ass, but I totally support all the athletes that are competing!
I do think the other countries that are competing should be offended and insulted at how unfinished everything is. The situation seems to be uncomfortable at the least and downright dangerous in some cases. They’ve known for how many years that this happening? Maybe they should have put some of the police to work as laborers seeing as how they can be bothered to do police work…like stopping members of the LGTBQ community from being terrorized by so-called “vigilante” groups. And at least if they were working, they wouldn’t have time to arrest people for being gay.
Yes, I may be a tad bit angry and disgusted with the whole situation.
Anyway, now I have some recommendations that Mr. Putin would definitely not approve of.
My dear friend Ashavan Doyon has two very different stories he’s recently released.
The Colors of Romance is a short story from the Dreamspinner Valentine anthology. It’s sweet and romantic and I loved every word. If you’re looking for a smile, this is the story for you! You can get it here: http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=4670&cPath=55_813
If you like to cry a little before getting your happy ending, I suggest “I Almost Let You”. It has angst galore and two men you will be desperate to see work things out. You can find it here: http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=4549&cPath=55_813
Now, if you’re interested in my new release, “Breaking Cupid’s Curse”, then you can find it here: http://www.torquerebooks.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=96&products_id=4134
And as usual, it’s on Amazon along with all my other stories. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=ntt_athr_dp_sr_1?_encoding=UTF8&field-author=Cindy%20Sutherland&search-alias=digital-text&sort=relevancerank
