Sugar Skull Cupcakes!

My favorite time of the year is upon us! I'm always so excited, carving of the jack-o-laterns, ghost hunting, ritual ... so much to do!

Guess what?

You get to join me in some of it!

But first off, I want to say welcome to my newest followers! It's awesome to have you on board, and I hope my hubby and I can keep you entertained.

Now, onto the fun stuff.  The XIII Hour™ Halloween Masque. Such fun!!  I am beyond nervous and excited about this.  It's not like anything I've ever done before. This is going to be a virtual birthday party put on by not only myself, but my good friend and book reviewer and blogger Tobi Helton over at Forget The Housework, I'm Reading

I encourage everyone to jump over to her blog on Halloween and see what's going on.  You'll get to meet the characters of the series and another good friend or two of mine and see what they are up to on their birthday and how they are celebrating.  You'll even be able to interact with them by leaving comments about what you read.

You know what's even better?  You can join us on Facebook RIGHT HERE to see what other fun activities we have going on as well!

Any questions, don't be afraid to ask. I love to answer them. Until next time, my eebil ones... <3

Part Deux!

Tonight was as if I was some sort of mad scientist testing the effects of torture on a poor helpless soul. Muahahahahaha.....Okay, so maybe it was just me pushing Blue through a great workout. Haha
So onto the update, Blue did fantastic! Of course if you ask her I'm sure she would gladly fill you in on the horror of how hard it was and how horrible she did. But she pushed herself through some strength training and even did some self motivated cardio. I am very proud of her for sticking with this and am sensing many great workouts to come.
I can already tell that she will accomplish her goals and then some. I am very excited to be guiding her through this journey.
That is all for now, there will be more to come!

The Reckoning

Ladies and Gentlmen I am writing today to announce that Blue's reckoning has arrived. Yes, you read that right, not only am I training her but now we have a membership to a gym. That might sound like a great thing, but for her it means that I now have access to lots of wonderful torture devices. (insert evil laugh)
Tonight will be day one for her at the gym. She thought she knew what sore was before, HA, if only she knew what was in store for her. I will stopping back in later to discuss the results or as I refer to it the aftermath! : D

At it again!

That's right everyone I've done it again, Blue is once again limping around the house cussing me under her breathe. Today's training involved a 30 minute run....of course I just couldn't resist adding a hill for her to sprint up. Hahaha 👿! As I push her towards her goal one step at a time it never ceases to amaze me just how motivated she can be. Even after she was sweating, wore out and gasping for breathe she wanted to know the details of the next work out.

Now to move on to one of OUR favorite topics HALLOWEEN or as we refer to it Samhain. That's right it's October and in our house that means an entire month of horror movies and ghost hunts. I would say decorations but they stay up year round around here. And we love it that way! Even as I type this Blue is glued to the television watching the third installment of the Exorcist. Horror movies and supernatural shows are a way for her to energize her creatively complex mind. It's almost like watching a battery on a charger : )

Well I think that's a wrap until next time. But before I go maybe some of you out there have questions about Blue you want answered, and if you do feel free to ask....just beware you never know what I might say next.

You got "The Look"

Okay, so I got picked by Jojo and Amy to do this whole "Look" blog post thingy.  As we all know, I HATE blogging, which is why Josh has pretty much taken it over. But hey, I couldn't pass this up.

So, you're supposed to pick your favorite paragraphs that surround the word "look" in your current WIP.  Well, From Hel is my WIP, so here is my choice ...

“Put. Me. Down.” Each word was laced with venom as she stared up at Maelstrom’s face. It was a silent order to do exactly as she commanded while she moved against the unsolicited touch, or he was going to face a punishment he might not like.

            “Easy, Raven, he was just trying to help.” Annabel sniffled as she looked up in adoration at Maelstrom, forcing an eye roll from everyone in the office.

All Annabel got was a look from Raven who swallowed down the instinctual urge to slit the Viking Chieftain’s throat as he set her to her feet.
There ya go kiddies!  It was part of the opening scene, a teaser if you might say ...
Now, I'm supposed to name five authors to follow me in my footsteps and well, I suck because I don't know everyone's blogs, and well, every one has pretty much done it, so I am tagging a butt ton on FacePage and forcing them to do it.  That's right, hate me later!  <3
