When I thought about starting a blog, I really wanted to make this a place for us to get to know each other. I want to get to know you as you get to know me. I want to know what you like, what you don’t. What stories would you like to see written? What makes you crazy in books, in a good and bad way *wink wink*. I haven’t been doing a whole lot of that, so this is my mission to get better. This blog challenge will give us something to talk about every Friday, but I don’t want it to be about me. I want it to be about you too, so each month I will be giving away prizes to a random commenter of the blog challenge posts! Sound good to you? At the end of the year, everyone who has commented will be put into random.org, and I will choose one winner to receive a signed paperback from me. 🙂 So come, on! Let’s play!!!

I’m playing catch- up because I missed all of January! Oopsies!!!

Week 1-A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS.

Reading, writing, scrapbooking, visiting family, meeting new people, chatting with friends, making covers/logos/teasers/promos for other authors, mini golf, bowling, coloring, stickers, legos…… I have lots, but the post says a few, so that’s all you get *giggle*

Week 2-HOW MY FAMILY SURVIVES MY WRITING

I am not all too sure that my family IS surviving my new found love for writing. When I get the urge to write, I have to dive in, and I can shut out my entire world while I am doing so. During the editing process, I am not easy to live with because all of my grumpies come to the forefront. I hate editing. It feels so hopeless sometimes, but then I step back and look at the big picture and good edits really matter. So I will suck it up and try to endure. My family? You might want to pray for them. Lol

Week 3-TV SHOWS I BINGE

My thoughts on binge watching… Is there another way to watch a show? I’m a professional binge watcher. If I am stuck on a show, then I will see it through to the very end. At the moment, hubby and I are binging Blacklist, I freakin love James Spader, and my friend and I are binging Once Upon a Time, greatest show around. Any suggestions for where I can go next?

Week 4-“Sorry Editor!” MY COMMON WRITING MISTAKES

My manuscript is a mess when it goes to my editors. I always have to add more detail, more feeling and “show don’t tell.” They tease me because my sexy scenes are a mess. I do NOT like naughty words, but I really want to write naughty books, so therein lies a huge problem. I have been told that my next book, we are going to practice, but I am digging my heels in hard!!!!!

The only time my phone is not within reaching distance is when I am in the shower. No joke, I have it All. The. Time. So when asked who my best friend is, why pick one, when I can pick all of them. You guys, I seriously have the most amazing friends (You all know who you are). I am so blessed.

My other best friend is a thesaurus, but not just any thesaurus, but this one…
