Thursday Thirteen - 13 things you probably don't want to know...

Image
Welcome to the Thursday Thirteen for November 29th, 2012

Here are thirteen things you probably don't want to know about my dog:
1. Although he is a purebreed (PBGV), he is always mistaken for a mutt. (Is that a cross between a basset hound and a schnauzer?)

2. Because of his preposterously short legs, he needs to use steps to get on the bed; but when my daughter's chihuahua was able to leap up with ease, his pride wouldn't let him use the steps anymore. Now he spends 5-10 minutes trying to jump up before he finally makes it (or my husband gives in and puts him on the bed).

3. His favourite foods: Shoes & panties

4. He gets carsick unless he rides in the front seat, which means on a road-trip, I'm in the back

5. The volume of his bark/howl rivals that of a jet engine but with the pleasantness of nails on a chalkboard.

6. He watches television, especially enjoying procedurals, but he does not like American Horror Story.

7. He desperately wants to talk. He will sit and …

Hump Day Hook #5 (Rated R excerpt)

Welcome to the Hump Day Hook Hop for November 28, 2012!

With this blog hop, each author posts one paragraph from a WIP or finished book for all to see. Then, it would be really cool if you could visit all the writers participating and comment on their paragraph!


This sensual paragraph is from my current work in progress, Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth, the sequel to Pulse and Prejudice, the vampire adaptation of Jane Austen's classic love story.  This scene takes place just after the first Hump Day Hook I posted.

By request, this is a hotter scene than usual, although it does take place in the snow!
(This excerpt is intended for a mature audience. Reader discretion is advised.)

Check out Indie Jane this week for a new 5-star review of All My Tomorrows AND a chance to win a paperback or an eBook! Be sure and enter this week! Click Here All My Tomorrows is losing the ratings war.
For headwriter Alice McGillicutty, the past year has had enough drama. Her mother passed away, her last relationship ended in disaster, and now poor ratings are catapulting her long-running soap opera toward cancellation. For comfort and creative inspiration, she begins reading The Edge of Darkness, an old melodramatic paperback she found among her mother’s belongings.
When scandal rips Hollywood bad boy Peter Walsingham off the tabloids and into her studio, Alice doubts the small screen is big enough for his ego – or his entourage. In their battle of pride and prejudice, will Peter’s vanity and arrogance compel Alice to write him out of her script, or can she find a role for him in All My Tomorrows?
This contemporary romance not only follows Alice and Peter as they wrestle with …

Although Peter has seen Alice McGillicutty from a distance, this is the first time they meet, and he doesn't get off on the right foot when he flounces into her office addressing her as "Mrs."


Thursday Thirteen for Thanksgiving

Image
Since this Thursday Thirteen falls on Thanksgiving, I expect most people will be spending time with their families and football instead of reading blog posts!

So here are 13 things I think of about Thanksgivings past...

1. Table - Thanksgiving was always one of those rare occasions when we went all out with setting the table with cloths, centerpieces, crystal, and china.

2. Handwashing - Alas, after dinner, I always had to handwash all that crystal and china! And I wouldn't let anyone else do it - better I be the one to break something!

3. Ambrosia salad - Any salad that includes whipped cream and marshmallows works for me!

4. Native Americans - Those people we invited over for dinner before taking all of their land in exchange for small pox and alcoholism.

5. Kick - The wide-left field goal kick that allowed the Saints to beat the Cowboys on Thanksgiving day 2010.

6. Sauce - Cranberry. I always want to get creative with the cranberry sauce, trying out different recipes using fre…
