I have the middle of the week blahs. The weather isn’t helping. Cold, wet, terribly un-June like, and it’s not just happening here. I’ve gotten reports from people everywhere that this month hasn’t been up to snuff.
I’m sitting on the couch wearing a fleece-lined jacket. This is unheard of during any “normal” year.
I admit I like sleeping under the weight of a couple of blankets, and having AJ to curl up to is one of the finer things in life, but when the sun is up, I want HEAT and there hasn’t been much yet this year.
I’d hate to go into next winter not having enjoyed summer!
In other news… AJ’s new book, Safeword, is doing very well on Amazon, scoring high on the various lists both here and in the UK. I am not surprised. It’s a wonderful story, well told, and fans of the first book, Power Exchange, will love this sequel.
This raises an interesting question. Am I jealous of AJ’s success? Short answer: YES. I’ve experienced nothing like it the entire time I’ve been writing for publication.
Long answer: Fuck, no. He worked hard for this and deserves every dollar he makes and all the accolades that come his way. Well, I guess that wasn’t all that long an answer, but I think you know I support AJ completely and the little jabs of jealousy I feel once in a while are natural and human and are gonna happen because we’re both writers. I bet two actors living together experience this, too.
I figure, one day, it will be my turn. In the meantime, I enjoy his success vicariously and wish him huge sales numbers and wonderful reviews. He’s a terrific writer, and he worked long hours to make this story sing. Talent will out, and AJ is loaded with it.
Besides, he’s gonna make so much money off this sucker, he can take me out to dinner at the best restaurants in town. And I plan to make him do it, too. 😉
Oh, hey! Got a nice review for A Silence Kept here. They kept using the wrong title, but we know what they meant, right?
I have some pics in the camera I hope to post either Friday or Monday. The weather has been so abysmal, I haven’t been in the mood to take any. I mean… SUN! Where is it? The upper Midwest has been under an everlasting cloud, something similar to the everlasting gobstopper from Willie Wonka, only in a bad way.
The weekend is coming! See you Friday.
