Goals the Week of MEETINGS

Yes, we have reached the time of year where there is something going on about every day. The reward is that this week one grade level will be on a field trip one day, and we have inservice next Monday, so next week will be “short.” Right now my classes are going well except for the SPED pre-K. I don’t really know what to do with them to keep them occupied for 45 minutes. I’m taking giant Legos tomorrow to see if that helps.

Eden’s Promise is on sale this week on Amazon, and I’ve been working on Facebook ads this morning. I’ve not had great success with those, try as I might.

We spent yesterday cleaning the garage and painting a cabinet, so busy day. Then I finished my edits last night and sent them to the boxed set I’ll be in next month. Whew! I’m looking forward to decorating and working on a new book today.

Happy Release Day To ME!!! Her Next Mistake, Out today!


Her Next Mistake Final

The third book in my Off-Season series is here, the story of a wild child and the soldier she wakes up married to!

Mercedes Fonseca has kissed a lot of frogs looking for her prince. The party girl of Avalon Island is looking for Mr. Right to take her away from her job as a maid in the hotel. She would make an excellent Real Housewife. Unfortunately, not many filthy rich men came to the island, so she’s just out for fun.

Efraim Tavitas is on leave from the Army and has come to Avalon to help his buddy open his new motel on the beach. He’d rather be on the Texas coast than home in Las Vegas. He’s attracted to the playful, sexy Mercedes, but he’s not ready for anything more than a fling.

So when he wakes up in bed with her with a ring on his finger…he has to decide if the fun-loving girl is wife material. And she has to figure out if she really wants to be a soldier’s wife.






New TV Season

FINALLY my favorite issue of Entertainment Weekly landed in my mailbox–the fall preview issue. I love checking out new shows, though I don’t always stick with them. And yes, I already watch a heck of a lot of TV, But I am always excited about the new season.

Sunday–I have to watch Blood and Oil, being it’s set in a Boom Town. Alas, not a Texas boom town, and not like Evansville, but still.

Then there’s The Walking Dead and The Strain.

Monday–Big Bang returns, Castle returns, Gotham returns. I’m adding Life in Pieces, the comedy with James Brolin, and Minority Report, and Supergirl when it starts.

Tuesday–Adding The Grinder with Rob Lowe, The Bastard Executioner, Grandfathered with John Stamos, Scream Queens with Jamie Lee Curtis, and possibly The Muppets to Fresh Off the Boat, SHIELD and iZombie. Hmm, that’s a full night!

Wednesday–American Horror Story: Hotel is added to Arrow and my Wednesday night comedies.

Thursday–Adding Heroes Reborn to Scandal, Sleepy Hollow, Mom and Project Runway.

Friday–Adding Dr. Ken to Haven.

What are you watching? What are you looking forward to?
