My friend’s birthday is today. She is terrified of mice even though mice tend to find her anywhere she goes and leave little presents next to her computer and phone. This woman will knock over feeble, old ladies to get away from a mouse. A month ago, she followed me into my office in the morning as we caught up on life. My office was still dark as offices tend to be in the early morning. I stepped on something soft and brown. I paused, glanced down, and made a sound that sent my friend into instant panic. She has a spidey-sense for small, furry creatures (bunnies, squirrels, mice). She screamed and threw herself out of my office. She didn’t just run as I would’ve. Nope. The nimble woman catapulted her body through the door and into the hallway. The furry thing was not, in fact, a mouse, but my brown glove that I had unknowingly dropped.
I love my friend, btw. She makes my life a lot better. So, that’s why I’m starting off this post by saying:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, M!!! Thank you for being you! xo
I am the first person to admit that I am not good about keeping up with my author blog and newsletter or posting regularly to Twitter. Although if you follow me on Facebook you’ll notice a lot of animal posts. I’m an introvert and although social media is a great way for introverts to connect with folks and readers or just share videos/pictures of animals, I still don’t regularly engage. The way I see it: I spend enough time glued to the computer for work and writing that spending MORE time on social media is too much.
So thank you if you’re here reading this. You must really like me.
I have two more things to say today.
- Anyone who knows me, knows I do NOT like music concerts. There. I said it. I just don’t find most concerts worth my time or money. And let’s face it, music concerts aren’t cheap. But I got a free ticket to see Florence + the Machine last night and let me tell you: FLO ROCKED MY SOCKS OFF!!!!!
- My next book in my paranormal series, THE REAPER’S SACRIFICE comes out June 27th. That’s next month. OMG! So, I’m offering two giveaways on Goodreads – 1 signed, first edition, paperback of The Reaper’s Kiss, Book 1, and 1 signed, first edition, paperback of The Reaper’s Sacrifice. You should probably sign up…I mean, if you want to win free books or something.
