My God It's Monday

Wow, I nearly didn't make it through last week, but I spent the weekend working hard and finally got everything done and turned in, etc. Yay. And now it's a new week has started and I'm determined to make it a good one. I'm certainly starting off well -- I've got the back door open as the humidity isn't too bad today and its cooler. It's going to get hot and yuk later on, but right now, it's nice. Soon this will be every morning. September looks like it's going to start out hot, but I have faith that the fact that this is Ottawa will eventually pull that cooler and then cold weather in.

Watched the first episode of Better Late Than Never. I think they got the idea for this one from Idiot Abroad, which I love. This one was hilarious. I loved Bill Shatner going "I'm not 84!" when someone said he was. The truth is he's actually 85. But my absolutely favorite line is when they're eating a Japanese dish in a little wee restaurant and they ask the lady what they're eating and the answer is pig's vagina. Henry Winkler goes "Huh. Who knew?" And William Shatner, who had ordered it for them all grins and says "I did." Anyway. It was a hoot and I laughed the whole time. I'm looking forward to the rest of them.

Speaking of TV - The Great Food Truck Race just started a new season. I don't know what it is about this show, but I love it so much. I'm always excited that it has started again. I mean, I enjoy a lot of the cooking competition shows, but this one... I just love it so much!

I got the cover for Underground: Emergency Services and it's awesome. Kris Norris does great work. I'm trying to decide whether to do a cover reveal myself or to see if I can find a blog to do it. I'm also going to look for blogs to do a few guests posts on for when the book comes out (which I'm hoping is in the first week or two of September - will depend on how quick I am turning the edits back around.)

From the Get Go has just hit the coming soon page of Dreamspinner. Wicked Reads has done the cover reveal. That includes my reaction to the cover, the blurb, an excerpt and a giveaway! You can check that out here.

From the Get Go was first published in 2005 and has been cleaned up and re-edited, but it does not have new material in it. Thank you so much to Dreamspinner for picking it up and re-publishing it!

When easygoing Texas artist Dakin McBride makes his way to Ottawa, Canada, for a showing, he meets Jeff Tamrin, the fastidious manager of the Sussex Gallery. Despite coming from different worlds and being opposites in almost every way, the attraction is immediate, and soon Dakin and Jeff negotiate their own brand of diplomatic relations, forgetting all about art or seeing the sights the city has to offer. They get wrapped up in the moment, each of them intrigued by what he feels for the other.

The more they get to know each other, the more they like what they see. Dakin has a life to go back to in Texas, though, and Jeff has his own in Canada. Is there any way for their budding romance to survive the thousands of miles separating them? The relationship seems doomed, but at the same time, it feels too right to give up without a fight.

It's currently available for pre-order at Dreamspinner Press. It'll be available for download on September 28.

Have a great Monday all!
