Birthdays and National Holidays

My birthday sometimes falls on Memorial Day. When I was little I always associated my birthday with the holiday weekend - is it any wonder I grew up feeling special? lol - seriously, I appreciate all of the men and women who serve our country - it is a hard job and I can only imagine how tough it truly is. Thanks, thanks and thanks :)

Back to my national holiday, er, birthday - I had a great time. My son graduated a few days before, so my mom, my mom in law and my dad in law, were all in town - a built in party already. By the time we had mimosas at the Crab House, we were on a roll! I was only sort of kidding about being special and the entire month of May is dedicated to moi and scary movies. We've seen Hatchet, the old classic Evil Dead, some new good ones and some that really stretched the B movie into the bottom of the alphabet. Thirty Days of Night, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake with Matthew M and Renee Z, Lost Boys, Fright Night, Dusk til Dawn - I adore cheesy horror movies - really really love them, lol!
Tonight we're watching Army of can be sweet :)

What this has to do with writing? Nothing at all - but good news is that Her Wiccan, Wiccan Ways finaled in the 2008 Indie Book Awards - and Love's Magic got 4 out of 5 stars from Romantic Times :)

Love's Magic is available June 1st at a bookstore near you!

Thanks to all of the wonderful people in my life

Woo Hoo - Love's Magic in Print !!!

From this....

to this! Plotting and writing and staying on page count is all worth while now that my author copies have come, and I'm HOLDING MY BOOK IN MY HANDS :):)
I can't get over the rush of it. A dream that has come true. A goal accomplished - a faithful lunge toward my writing career!!!
All of the hard stuff is nothing compared to this. it's like childbirth - you don't remember the racking pain once you cuddle that baby in your arms.
I screamed, I cried - as you can see, I didn't bother with make-up :) My terrific husband brought me champagne and roses. This is his journey too. Thanks honey!
