Goals for Week of AVENGERS!!!

WOW, last week was a crazy week, with yesterday being the craziest, but I made it! Thank God for monitoring during testing, is all I have to say.

This week will be a sad one. We’ll be saying goodbye to Dukey, our oldest cat. She’s 15 and, well, we probably should have taken her a month ago, but we just couldn’t, after Stormy. I had no idea she’d hold on this long, but she’s miserable. On top of that, my youngest cat has been missing since the terrible storms that rolled through Thursday night. So I’m super-stressed about that.

Today will be one more party with my visitors, then back to work tomorrow!

1) Dinner at Salt Lick

2) Vet for Dukey

3) drum circle inservice

4) Go see Avengers

5) WORK ON AVALON ISLAND!!! I haven’t written since Thursday, y’all! This is BAD. It is due to my editor May 18!!

Happy Birthday–and Happy Release Day–To ME!!!

The Cowboy’s Promenade is out today at all retailers, only 99 cents through the weekend, as a thank-you to my loyal readers. It’s the story of single mom Juliana and single dad Trace trying to make a go of a relationship, when both have been hurt before. I’ve had this pairing planned since the first book, Waltz Back to Texas, but Trace was a lot harder than I thought to convince. His divorce hasn’t been final long, and he’s in the middle of a custody battle….so how about a marriage of convenience? Only Juliana wants more.

I listened to a lot of country music while writing this. My playlist is below.

And I used Scott Eastwood and a young Debra Messing. Can you see it?
