Tune-In Tuesday: Unconditionally

Happy Tuesday! The American Music Awards were this past Sunday night, and Katy Perry had the honor of opening the show with her new single, Unconditionally. The set, the dancers, the lyrics, her voice … all of it was fantastically top notch. LOVE Kady, and every time I see her perform, she gives me hope and leaves me looking forward to what she’ll do next. And this video? Amazing. 😉 Enjoy!     Related posts: Tune-In Tuesday: Titanium Tune-In Tuesday: Peace of Mind […]

Video Fun Friday #1

I watch way too many hilarious You Tube videos throughout the week. So I decided to start sharing at least one with all of you on Fridays. So … welcome to Video Fun Friday! Video #1: This one’s just too cute to pass up. I really need to post a video or two of my cats since they enjoy playing with water, too. 🙂     Video #2: Tom Hiddleston impersonating a velociraptor! LOVE this one! And I discovered this jewel […]

Are You a Multitasking Writer?

This past weekend I experienced something that could be considered the ultimate in multitasking: cooking while writing. 🙂 Believe me, I knew this could’ve ended in one or two ways. Either everything was end up “sorta” okay, or the food was gonna be burnt, burnt, burnt. Bad news is the hubby caught me in the act. Good news is the food turned out GREAT. The even better news is that I managed to get at least 700 fresh words written […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Demons by Imagine Dragons

Welcome back to Tune-In Tuesday! I’m just now realizing how long it’s been since I’ve posted. *head desk* When the muse hits and demands you edit, edit, edit one project and write, write, write another project, you listen. And sometimes when we listen and obey we get so caught up in that work that everything else falls through the cracks. Agree? Cool. Now onto today’s music. 😉 I’ve been loving on the band Imagine Dragons lately. As in, I’m listening […]

Special Excerpt from A Touch of Darkness by Yelena Casale & Tina Moss

Last week I reviewed A TOUCH OF DARKNESS by Yelena Casale & Tina Moss. And this week I have a special excerpt from Yelena & Tina. 🙂 Take it away, ladies! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Gabe might be the hero of the story and he is quite the sexy-broody-mysterious type, but if Yelena and I are honest…well…we sort of have a soft spot for bad boy, Rafe. He’s the kind of character you want to kill for his arrogance, but you just can’t […]

Review: A Touch of Darkness by Yelena Casale & Tina Moss

I’m SO excited to share my review today for Yelena and Tina’s debut novel, A TOUCH OF DARKNESS! Book Blurb: Cassie’s working for a tightwad boss at a pretentious NYC diner, dealing with paralyzing pain that doctors can’t diagnose, and trying to hide her hands that glow purple whenever she …well, whenever. So, when a mysterious stranger walks out of her dreams and into her life to spout some nonsense about her being a mythical creature, she chalks it up […]

Gotta Go Dark…

I had hoped to avoid this, but I guess you can’t fight City Hall, can you? O.o This is the time of year that’s absolutely insane for me–mostly at the day job where I’m usually stuffing 60 hours worth of work into a 40-hour work week. So. Not. Fun. But I love my job and it keeps me on my toes. The only problem is that something always has to give around this time of year. Unfortunately, it’s consistently blogging […]

Where in the World is ARCHETYPE?

  So there’s this publisher called Dutton Books, who decided to publish this book called ARCHETYPE by M.D. Waters. GREATEST. DECISION. EVER! No joke. There’s a reason why there’s been an insane amount of buzz in the publishing world about this book. Check out the blurb from Goodreads: Introducing a breathtakingly inventive futuristic suspense novel about one woman who rebels against everything she is told to believe. Emma wakes in a hospital, with no memory of what came before. Her […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Peace of Mind

We’re taking it back this week on Tune-In Tuesday to an old favorite by Boston: Peace of Mind. The good thing about writing playlists is you can have such a variety of music–from Boston to Thirty Seconds to Mars, from The Beatles to Muse, from Madonna to Evanescence. I, for one, really enjoy the good vibes and inability to sit still when bands such as Boston, AC/DC, and Foreigner come on the radio. Enjoy! What about you? Are there any […]

Tine-In Tuesday: The 2nd Law–Isolated System

Welcome back to another installment of Tune-In Tuesday! This week, we’re visited the world of my current work-in-progress, RETRIBUTION, with a song from Muse called “Isolated System”. For those of us who’ve seen the movie World War Z, this song is going to sound eerily familiar. This song is not only the opening music for the zombie-flick, but it played throughout the film, mostly during transitional scenes. Enjoy     Related posts: Tune-In Tuesday: Peace of Mind Tune-In Tuesday: Follow Me by […]
