Pulling My Hair Out
Sorry I haven’t been around.
Actually, I HAVE been around.
I’ve been on Facebook.
And in my minivan a lot because that is where moms get sucked into a vortex of doom and where their souls go to die.
I am also at my laptop a lot trying to wrestle the words for my new book out of my head and onto the keyboard. That explains the hair pulling.
Some books flow naturally from my mind and onto the page completely unencumbered. However, this book is totally cumbered. It’s cumbering the heck out of me.
So there you have it … the reason I haven’t blogged and where to find me.
Where are you these days?

The real side effects of caffeine withdrawal
The world is not a safe place for the consistently clumsy or the awfully awkward. I’ve found that this is particularly true now that I’m caffeine deprived. I gave up coffee for a couple weeks and I’m not ashamed to say that, in the beginning, I was as jittery as a heroin addict jonesing for her next fix.
In addition to being sluggish in the morning, the lack of caffeine turned me into a bungling butterfingers. I was dropping things, bumping into corners and tripping over real and imagined objects. In one particularly bizarre incident, the belt of my housecoat snagged in the door of a cupboard (I re-enacted the horror in the photo above). The snagging of my belt caused me to fall to the floor, spilling my mug of herbal tea (it tasted like old gym socks anyway) and I smashed my already sore shoulder on the tile floor. It was like I was auditioning for my own part on Loony Tunes .
The good news? I am now able to consume a cup of coffee every few days and my overly clumsy stage seems to have ended (although I’ll never be graceful) . Other good news? I’m totally enjoying the current book I’m writing. It hasn't found a publishing home yet, however, so if you're looking for something to read click here for some suggestions.
How about you? Are you the poised and graceful type?

Ode to my ice pack
Although it was mucho fun writing most of Dead Suite and all of Drop Dead Beauty using mostly my right hand, on Tuesday I had surgery on my left shoulder and am now typing with two hands!
I never thought much about my shoulder until it became extremely owchie last July. Many x-rays, MRI's, doctor visits and sleepless nights later, the problem is fixed. At least it will be, after months of physio. However, I'm back to 80 words-a-minute and, with the help of my beloved ice-pack, I'm writing with BOTH hands.
To celebrate, here is an Ode to My Ice-Pack. You're welcome:
Tis the gentle coolness of thy touch
That makes me sigh with relief
That thou relieves my shoulder of its pain
With numbness I desire much
Although evil physio causes hurtiness
Your lovely freezing doth help my gain.
There's reason I'm a novelist and not a poet!
Now I return you to your regular day while I go about writing my next book. Hope you're feeling poetic today too!

FOUR is much better than THREE
Although there’s nothing wrong with the number three, you have to agree that four is sooo much better. Need proof?
There are Four Noble Truths in Buddhism. Unless you’re a liar, I bet you like the idea of truths and 4 truths is better than 3 lies any day.
If you’re Jewish, there are Four Cups of Wine to drink on Passover. If you like wine, this is a win.
There are four different blood types (A, B, O, AB). I’m not sure why we need 4 blood types, but blood is important so this has to be a good thing, right?
Four is a stable number. If you don’t agree, try eating at a table with only 3 legs while sitting on a 3-legged chair.
Four was Lou Gehrig’s number with the New York Yankees.
Four is the only number that has the same amount of letters as its actual value which is pretty cool.
I have four kids.
Soon the fourth book in the Ghost Dusters series will be out!
Dead Suite will be released as an ebook on February 19th.

Scratching an itch
Like my current kitchen renovation.
This is great when it comes to writing stories. If a book idea is jabbing at me, I'll let it simmer in my brain for a while. If the idea won't stop pestering me, I'll start research and then writing.
Another itch I often get involves travel. Truthfully, I can hardly finish one vacation before planning the next. It's an expensive sickness.
What itch do you like to scratch?

I just wanna give you a SMOOCH!!
It's been an exciting week for GROUNDS TO KILL!
Here are a few fabulous reviewers who made my week extra specials:
Dru Ann at Cozy Chicks
Mish's Book Shelf
Mary at BookTrib
When an author puts pen to paper (fingers to keyboard) it is a miracle if your agent likes it enough to support it and a second miracle if an editor likes it enough to throw their company name behind your work.
It's a leap of faith and a third miracle if readers also enjoy your story. I'm well aware readers have dozens of new choices in reading material every single day. You've taken a risk when buying my book. You hoped to be entertained and engaged and I hope I didn't disappoint. Of course, you can't be everyone's cup of tea (or coffee) but I'm grateful to each and every one of you who enjoyed my humble attempt to entertain.
Today I want to thank each of you who took a that leap and bought any of my books. If you liked my stories and actually took the time to say so either by email, or review, I'd love to grab you and give you a sloppy smooch right on the lips!
I consider it a blessing each and every day that I can put my thoughts on paper and then have someone I've never met take a chance and read my work. YOU are the biggest miracle of all.

Everyone should shoot a penis now and then ...

You can find GROUNDS TO KILL in ebook or audible format wherever great ebooks are sold. Fo example:
Feel free to share your near-penis shootings in the comments.

Do you have GROUNDS TO KILL?
Asking people if they have GROUNDS TO KILL has brought me some interesting looks and even more interesting replies. I get anything from "Grounds to kill who?" to "Hell yeah I do!"
Even more interesting are the Google Alerts I receive in my inbox each day. A Google Alert allows Google to email me links to sites that mention Grounds to Kill so that I know who's talking about it, who's reviewing it, and, apparently, who has grounds to murder their spouse. You may be surprised to learn that there are many more people out there trying to justify homicide than reading my book.
However, YOU are not one of those people, right?
YOU are one of my kind, considerate, enthusiastic readers, right?
And, if you're not, you soon will be, right?
I'm almost positive you've come to my blog to read about my latest book and not because you're looking to justify the killing of someone. I hope so.
Please buy my book instead of murdering someone.
If you HAVE considered killing, maiming, or even maligning someone who's done you wrong feel free to confess all in the comments. I won't judge you. I've been there.
