Yes, it’s true. I’ve taken the plunge and moved to a self-hosted blog…and have to say a HUGE thank you to Breeana Puttroff, author of one of my favorite series, The Dusk Gate Chronicles, for helping to get me started.

Myndi Shafer on My NEW Blog…today!

I don’t know if you’ve seen it yet, but I’ve set up housekeeping on a new, self-hosted blog/website (so I can stop hopping between a blog and a website).

So anyway…

Pop on over to the new digs so you can read the interview with Myndi Shafer. She’s telling us all about her the release of her latest book, The Darkening.

The Vampire Diaries Disappoints Yet Again

***SPOILER ALERT***

If you haven’t seen the most recent episode (2/21/13), you might want to skip this post.

~~~~~

If you watch television, there’s no getting around the fact that once in awhile…someone you love is going to die. It’s almost always because an actor wants to leave a series, but fortunately it doesn’t happen too often.

Unless we’re talking about The Vampire Diaries. And apparently the writers can’t figure out how to make the show interesting without killing off main characters every season.

In some ways this show gets better and better, but that aspect of it is getting really old.

Frankly I didn’t care when they knocked Vickie, Anna, Tyler’s uncle, Caroline’s father and a few of the others off. Given the theme of the story, people dying is pretty much a given.

However…

Jenna Sommers, John Gilbert, Lexi Branson (yeah, I know, she wasn’t an MC, but I liked her), Carol Lockwood, Alaric Saltzman (I’m still a little ticked over that), and now…Jeremy Gilbert?!

We’re talking not quite four seasons here, and the cast is dwindling more and more. The only humans left are Liz Forbes and Matt Donovan – and if Matt dies, I probably will stop watching the show.

Maybe it’s time to hire a few new writers. People who can come up with interesting scripts that don’t rely on reducing the cast every time we blink.

I’m going to stop here before this turns into a rant, or more of a rant than it is. But I have to say…if I wanted a steady dose of depressing ‘reality,’ I’d turn the news on. I don’t watch much television, and when I do, I watch it to escape, not to walk away feeling bummed out when the hour is over.

Valentine’s Day, Book Release, & An Interview

First…Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone! I hope you’re enjoying sweet cards, pretty flowers, books, and special treats on this February 14th. More importantly, I hope you’re spending it with someone you truly care about, be it a significant other, a good friend, or your kids.

On four hours sleep, I’m going to be spending some quality time with my pillow and blanket here before too much more time passes. Much as I don’t like to take a nap, when it starts looking like I’ve ‘had a few too many’ when I walk from one room to another, it’s definitely time to catch up on a little sleep.

And now for the book release. Yup. Almost two months later than anticipated, but the 3rd book in my Coach’s Boys series, A Harry Situation, is finally here!

A Harry Situation-Cover 1

It’s available on Smashwords as I write this. As soon as I get a URL for Amazon.com, I’ll post an update. Hopefully that will be later today.

And now for the interview. Over the course of the past year and a half or so, I’ve gotten to know a lot of people I’d never have had the opportunity to ‘meet’ were it not for my writing. A few have become very good friends, and one of them…Shineka Robinson…has become one of the best. I did an interview with her last week, and it’s up on her blog, Cause Everyone Needs Romance, right now. Stop by and say hi. There will be a drawing for ten digital copies of The Daddy Pact for those who leave a comment.

And now, because I’m almost as hungry as I am exhausted, I’m going to go get a small bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream…and then I have a date with RDJ, Bruce Willis, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Hey, as long as I’m going to visit dreamland for a couple of hours, I might as well get in some major Valentine’s romance, right?
