The Monkey on my back and other distractions

Here I am again, letting so much time go by between blogs.  I've been working hard on pounding out critiques and writing my newest novel, titled: Keeper of the Southern Gate.  I'm excited to be writing again after the hectic running around during the holidays.  That monkey from them didn't climb off though.  I find that January with all its birthdays has me running around like the proverbial chicken without a head.  TIME!!! Just a bit of my own would be lovely.

Well there is the number one thing that everyone wishes for.  Splitting mine, between children, music, writing, advertising, finding book reviewers.  HINT HINT.  If any of you reviewers out there are interested my door is wide open, and that means a free copy of Quicksilver for you.  YEAH.

Okay, so I'll stop yelling.  I want just two days a week to write and have time to myself, but that monkey hanging on my back keeps just digging in.  There is not enough days in the week, and I just had more added to my plate.  Oh well, I'll knuckle down and spend more time doing the little things, and less time wasting.  Is that true?  Do I really waste time.  Well I don't waste time blogging, that's for sure, huh. 

Okay, so that little monkey will get worn down and let out of that cage that seems to be holding him.  I hope you have time in your life to spare.  Any hints?  Feel free to comment and let me know.


  1. Great photo! Don't we all want more time? Sometimes we need to settle for finding more joy in the things that are on our plate. I'm interested in finding out more about being a reviewer. I've posted some reviews on my blog or on Goodreads. More info, please: type of books, how often, etc. Find me at

  2. I read "Quicksilver," and it is a very interesting book with great characters that are really believable. I really loved the female character. I really felt compassion for both main characters and all that they were going through to have a normal, loving family. At the end of the book, it is very unpredictable. One moment, you think it is going to end one way. The next moment, you think it will end the other way. The middle is very tense and exciting.

  3. Quicksilver is about a werewolf who lives in the modern world and wants to be a normal human, and, later, his love, who just wants to have a family which includes children. The 2 fight many odds throughout the book, and are very in love. The romance is very good in this book. She describes it very well, without giving the details you don't want to read.

  4. I can't say much more, because I don't want to give SPOILERS!

  5. I have a monkey, too. Blasted thing won't let go. Happy writing. :)
