I almost didn’t post this week. I’ve been super mega busy with editing Veil of the Corrupter and for anyone who hasn’t noticed, it’s friggin Christmas!!! Which means decorating, listening to Mariah’s “All I want for Christmas is you” on repeat and spending ridiculous amounts of money while my husband yells “Rabble Rabble!!!!” and tries to hide his wallet from me.
Little does he know I’ve put a lojack on it… I’m kidding! I have my own money, I’m an independent woman and all that…
No but srsly I want his money to buy dancing santas…
As you all know, Christmas makes me giddy.
It also means that Starbucks have some new delicious themed drink. This year I tried the Peppermint Frappucino and I know some people hate Starbucks for ethical and economical reasons, but I just want my Christmas drink ok, leave me alone. I refuse to let you ruin my special holiday.
Anyways, for those who visit my little blog for book stuff, here are some fun facts you should know…
I will be announcing the release date for Veil of the Corrupter at the end of December. It will be available for pre order through amazon on kindle and paperback, as well as smashwords and itunes.
Bloggers or reviewers who are interested in an E-ARC of Veil can send me a message. I would LOVE to hear from you!
I will giving away autographed copies of The Empyrean Key in paperback, both here and at goodreads.com, also at the end of December.
I am working on a new YA Fantasy book that is a loose retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I’m hoping to get the first draft nailed down in the new year.
And now for those who just looove my midweek motivators…. Guess what?
IT’S CHRISTMAS THEMED !!!!!!*FREAKOUT*!!!!!!
EDIBLE: Pavlova – A Kiwi classic. It’s all meringue (Fun Fact: I never spell meringue right, I mean, that’s not what it sounds like; meringue, that doesn’t seem right. I bet the inventor spelled it wrong and everyone just went with it), whipped cream and fresh summer fruits like strawberries, grapes, kiwifruit and passionfruit. YUM. When this is on the table I feel like Christmas just exploded on my face! Wait. What?
VISUAL: This was tough because Christmas is not traditionally associated with hot dudes. Most guys in Christmas movies are dads who wear festive jumpers and a good pair of slacks. Oh but wait. Die Hard is kind of a Christmas movie. It takes place during Christmas, and who’s in Die Hard? Bruce “Yipee-ki-yay Mother#@!!@*#” Willis that’s who! Rather than a festive jumper he struts about in a bloody wife-beater wielding a Beretta 92F. Awww yeah.
AUDIBLE: Mariah Carey is straight up cray-cray but when this song is on the radio you better move aside because Jo is about to RIP.IT.UP.
