Bloggin’ Medley!

Over a week and I haven’t posted a thing. In my defense, this past week was quite busy with baking, decorating, writing and wedding plans!

Last week, I worked on my WIP because the inspiration hit me and I found some clarity in the direction of the story. I’ve had writer’s block for quite some time, not knowing where I was going with my novel. Now my current WIP is at 40,231 words. Another thing I was happy about is that my dark, psychological novel Net Switch received another 5-STAR rating. I don’t know who E. Fontenelle is but s/he made me smile for the rest of the week. 

So here’s a shameless plug for Net Switch. Christmas is coming up and Net Switch makes a great stocking stuffer or Kindle/Nook surprise. It’s a great page-turner (if I say so myself) to sink into the couch on a cold, snowy weekend, sipping a hot toddy, and riding the thrill wave from Chicago to Seattle. 

Now you might be saying to yourself, “There are so many other books out there that I want to read. Why would I waste my time on an unknown author’s book?” Well that is a great question to ask. My answer would be, “Net Switch was written by an unknown author who is currently building a readership audience. The book is dark with many twists and turns, it doesn’t disappoint, but it is missing one thing—YOU!” Think of it as your Black Friday Refreshment. I put the ‘fresh’ in refreshment. Okay I’ll stop...but go ahead, click on the picture.

We went to Spain this weekend to discuss our wedding plans there for February. We hope to marry in a church that’s 1,000 years old. I was going to share a picture, but Picasso won't let me.

When we came back to our flat, I spent the days putting up Christmas decorations and baking cookies. I baked one of my mom’s cookie recipes. They’re peanut butter kisses cookies. I remember these as a kid during the holidays. They’re good but not as good as when my mom made them.

Have a great Hump Day!

Holidays and Gifts,


  1. Peanut butter kisses cookies are one of my favorites. They rank up there with oatmeal raisen, no bakes, and just regular ol' peanut butter.

  2. And the one great thing about it is they turned out sooo good. I love peanut butter, especially the crunchy. I've been eating it on a piece of bread with some banana.

  3. Peanut Butter Kisses cookies are definitely the best! But a February wedding in Spain has to be even better. Here's to the Christmas spirit and to LOVE :)

  4. Your book getting a good rating is SUCH a good feeling. Warm fuzzies times 10! Congrats!

  5. Jeri, Cheers to all of us for the ending of a year, and the beginning of a new one.

    Libby, It is a great feeling receiving these ratings, especially when you don't even know the people. Not that I don't appreciate my friends and family's praises...
