Friday Fun! (Talkin Bout a Heat Wave)

June 22, 2012 4 comments

Hello my lovely readers!

After an oddly cool month (which I was soooo not complaining about), Boston got hit starting Wednesday with a heat wave.  We’re talking 97 to 100 degrees (36ish degrees for my non-US followers).  You guys. I’ve. Been. Dying.

I am a northern girl. Cold weather is what I am all about.  Even if it’s super cold out, that is easily remedied by an electric blanket, hot chocolate, and a good book. What’s not to like about that picture?  Hot weather though. Ugh.  When it’s hot out your entire body is coated with sweat and then you proceed to look like a furry because your cat’s fur sticks all over said sweaty skin and everything itches and your feet are so swollen that you get blisters and bloodiness everywhere and…

Ok, maybe a lot of that is just me.  But still!

I tried so damn hard not to use my ac at all this summer, but around midnight on Wednesday night when my hair had dried in a record 30 minutes post cold shower I decided I had to cave, and I put in my ac unit all by myself.  (Sorry neighbors for the timing of that adventure).  In any case!  The gym must be working, because I was successful. Nothing was dropped and lifting that unit didn’t even seem that hard.  I am, however, relegated to sleeping on the couch directly in front of it until this heat wave is over.

Be sure to check out Waiting For Daybreak‘s Goodreads page, because the reviews and ratings are starting to come in!  Next week I will be announcing the tour schedule as well as the tour banner.

I’ve also been working on Ecstatic Evil‘s formatting and cover issues.  I am soooo glad I decided to do a novella first to practice.  I’m happy to say that the formatting issues are now entirely taken care of, and in response to multiple reviews not enjoying the cover, I’ve decided to give it a new one.  The original cover was designed by a friend.  Designing Waiting For Daybreak‘s cover showed me what style works for me and that I can do it myself.  So I’ve come up with a cover for Ecstatic Evil that will be designed by me in the more linocut fashion that you see on Waiting For Daybreak.  Anyway.  The new Ecstatic Evil cover will be announced next week, and there will be a surprise to celebrate it. 🙂

Happy weekends all, and I hope my fellow New Englanders manage to stay cool! *waves*
