Fallen is out today!

"From the lochs of Scotland to the shores of America comes a gentle romance about two lonely hearts who find each other only to be torn apart by betrayal." —Romantic Times BOOKreviews

Finally after what seems like an eternity, Fallen is here! If you're in the Winston Salem area I'll be signing at New Beginnings in Rural Hall on Thursday Feb 5. Then on Saturday, Feb 7 I'll be in Raleigh at the Briar Creek Barnes and Noble with authors Claudia Dain, Deb Marlowe, Jenna Black and Beth Williamson.

I hope you enjoy Fallen.

Slow and steady. I've built up to 1000 words a day. I'm going to push it up to 1250 per day for the rest of the week. I'm on track to finish by my target date of April 15.

Laughter is good medicine... with Positive Side Effects!

Why, Why, Why?

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are almost dead?

Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they already know there is not enough money?

Why does someone
believe you when you say there are four billion stars; but have to check when you say the paint is still wet?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'?

If people evolved from apes,
why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses
are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, 'It's all right?' Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, 'That really hurt, why don't you watch where you're going?'

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

Someone sent me this in an email and I found it amusing. I don't do chain letter so I cut out that part put thought the rest was worth saving. Anyone else have any observations on life in general that can be added?

Cute video about publishing

A tongue in cheek look at the publishing industry. I'm thinking of applying for a job as an editorial assistant.
