I’ve been doing some website updates – I still have work to do on the book pages and can’t get the Men of Honor series in the right order even though I’ve numbered them correctly within the wordpress pages. But hey, you can’t have everything, right?
Anyway, I’ve finally got Blue’s (aka Free Falling) cover! I’m in love – thanks to the wonderful Frauke from CrocoDesigns! I’ve also got an excerpt up for Free Falling here. Release date is November 27, 2012 and I’ll let you know when everything goes live, since I’m self pubbing it.
Sometimes falling in love is the most dangerous thing of all…
Blue’s a thief who lives for adrenaline and danger. When he meets Mick, a mercenary and a hitter, he feels an immediate attraction. But Mick reneges on a bet they’ve made, leaving Blue pissed and confused.
When they meet again a year later, Blue’s in terrible danger after having walked into the middle of one of Mick’s jobs. Mick saves him, and although the two men have fallen for one another, they have no idea how to handle that kind of intimacy that’s been forced on them.
But when Mick goes missing on a job, Blue’s the one to go after him, determined to save the man he loves no matter the cost.
And the first two chapters of Bound for Keeps: Men of Honor book 5 is up here. That’s a February 19, 2013 release. Again, please feel free to contact me for ARCs of both books if you’re a reviewer or it you’ve got a blog you like to do reviews on. Or even if you’re very active on posting Amazon and Goodreads reviews, I’ll for sure consider giving you an ARC. Just contact me – email addy’s on this page.
In other news, preschool is killing me. Snack is working out okay, as is the baggie clothing situation, but it’s killing my writing time. It’s hard to explain, because it’s only a couple of days a week for a couple of hours, but I can’t get into real writing knowing that I’ve got to go back out into the world. I can do some writing, but nothing settled. But the moms are all nice. One of the teachers I love (I actually know her from competitive swimming when we were both like six plus)…and the main teacher…she’s nice, I guess. But she’s got this idea in her head that I told her that I let my son do whatever I want at home and I’m like, uh, I’d never say that because I don’t let him do whatever he wants.
But she doesn’t believe me. And yes, I was also the first mom called in for a parent-teacher conference. Because my son is what they call a kinesthetic learner. Which basically means that I’ll be sitting in parent teacher conferences constantly for the rest of my life, because he likes to climb and move and experience everything. He loves school – loves it.
So yes, he moves a lot. But he can also focus for long periods of time and he’s improved a lot with his climbing on things since the start of the year. (He’s also disassembled the fire alarm. Several times.)
But when I asked the teacher how he was with the other kids, she said, “He’s so good to them – he’ll actually bring over toys to give to them. He’s so kind. And he’s the happiest kid – he’s always smiling.”
And I’m thinking, honestly, I’m not really listening too seriously to anything else you have to say. Because he’s kind. And he’s two. And he loves school. And what more can I ask for?
I’m thinking of getting him a drum set for Christmas. And yes, I realize you’re all looking at me in exactly the same way my husband did when I told him this.
