Hello, Fire Enthusiasts. As always, I really appreciate you dropping by. I hope you and yours are well. For those keeping track at home I have finally begun to feel better. It’s been nearly three weeks since my allergy shot and it seems to have finally kicked in. Trust me when I tell you that it is no longer irritating to hang around with me. The constant clearing of the throat got on everybody’s nerves. And that was the least of my issues. In any event, I’m better.
It is Sunday night as I type this and I am enjoying the heck out of the long President’s Day Weekend after having worked the past two Saturdays. We just had my parents over for a bar-b-que which was nice. My dad came over early and he and I watched Skyfall together. Are you guys Bond fans? Did you enjoy the newest film? You have seen it, right? If not, come on over. We’ve got the whole Blu-ray Theater System now. Seriously, it very well might be the best Bond ever.
Speaking of films, my wife and I watched the new Soderbergh film, Side Effects. If you can get through the first half which deals with the main character’s depression, played very well by Rooney Mara - then you will enjoy the payoff at the end. The film was worth seeing, but I doubt I see it again. The beginning was just too depressing. Have you seen it? What did you think?
As you probably already know I haven’t been hanging about the social networks as often as I used to. That is due to the workload of the day job as well as my attempt to focus on my writing. I’m going over my WIP at the moment one last time before handing it off to beta readers. Sometime next month it will go to the editor. I’m really looking forward to having a paranormal novel this time around, especially one with romance. I haven’t abandoned my horror roots or anything. I just believe the market is huge there, and I think I’ve got something to add to the discussion, as it were. I shared a teaser last week, and promise to reveal further teasers in time.
For those of you who get a long weekend, enjoy it. I plan to spend Monday morning working on my manuscript before catching up on blogging. For those of you who are simply beginning a new week, I hope it’s a good one. Hopefully our paths will cross at least once.We’ll talk soon.
