A Very Very Cold Sunday

"Winter either bites with its teeth or lashes with its tail." ~ Anonymous

Brr! They promise single digits overnight, and they were right (for once!). It's crawled up to a blistering 14 degrees and is supposed to top out at 17 for the day. So I'll be staying inside for most of it...

Last night's author party was fun! Not as many people showed up as we originally thought, but it was still cool to hang out and talk books. One women drove 2 hours to come chat with romance authors - now that's dedication! (Or a really devoted sense of stalking, as she joked). I would definitely do it again - I think the idea is a good one.

Update on the Winter Reading Challenge: I finished Carrie Pilby a few days ago. You can read my thoughts on it here.

I'm currently finishing up a book review for another small press (ideally they'll put a clip from my review along with my name on the book cover itself, which would be nice promotion), and then I have a few choices as far as what I want to read next. I'll probably review one for LASR, but I also have a stack of Tori Phillips historicals next to my desk (I found all 6 in the "Cavendish Chronicles," on Ebay...I'm so excited!). Then The Red Tent is sitting patiently next to my bed as well, and I've been wanting to read that one for a while.

Hmm...we'll see what mood strikes me later today!

Stay warm, girl! It's cold down here, for south Georgia, but nothing like y'all get.

I have some reviews I need to write before my "boss" has my head! I've read the books... just to get the reviews done.

I loved The Red Tent. Loved it so much that I've read it a few times. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of it.

It's cold here too!

It was freezing (and continues to freeze) here!

The Red Tent . . . I hadn't heard of it, but now that I've checked it out at Amazon, I'm interested. I need more NEW, INTERESTING things to read.

BTW, I've tagged you . . . "A Roar for Powerful Words"--it is an easy one!
