Welcome 2014

Well, today is a fresh start in some respects. People will be making and trying to keep all those resolutions, and in general, preparing for what lies ahead. I decided to lay out some general goals for this year. I know, I know: goals are supposed to be specific, measurable, realistic, and attainable. I think for me, though, general works better!

By the way, as I’m typing this, I’m listening to the soundtrack from the CW’s show Arrow. Ahh…new episode January 15th. Sorry, sidetracked already!! Continue reading “Welcome 2014”

The Wrap: Vol. 2

It so good to back on the blog! I’ve missed it this week!

Day_lilies_webPhoto of the Week: (left) More flowers. This photo of day lilies was taken by a friend. I used it as inspiration for a sketch. Just loved the colors!

Word to Describe the Past Week: Sore!! I’ve tried to start exercising again (as in more than walking), and my body doth protest! I’ve not be held back by motivation but by aching muscles as in “Oh, I had muscles there?? Really??”

Books: I started reading Stephani Hecht’s Lost Shifter series. It’s an m-m series that focuses on feline shifters. Pretty interesting! The first one is Primal Passions; the second is A Feral Christmas. I awarded both 3.5 stars.

Writing: Edits are finished on Avery’s m-m story, Drama on Skyline Drive. Yay! It will be part of Torquere Press’s Charity Sip, to be released in mid-September. Unfortunately, the words weren’t flowing yesterday so I only added just under 2K to Manny and Chad’s story. It is so very close to being done!! Grr!!

“Pie” Theme: After my friend Nicole and I finished our bike ride, we treated ourselves to Apple Pie a la mode. The town where we rode didn’t have a coffee shop (our normal haunt for post-ride sustenance) so we settled on a small restaurant and pie!

TV/ Movies: Still addicted to Teen Wolf. Yeah, it’s bad. I finished the second season and am now re-watching the first season. Have to say that Derek Hale, who is played by Tyler Hoechlin, is so very drool-worthy. Here’s a link for some pics of Tyler. Heating_Up_The_Summer1

Pimp of the Week: Gotta do it… Heating up the Summer (the anthology that includes Latin Heat) is available in paperback. Whoo hoo! I’ve ordered several copies and want to plan some giveaways. http://goo.gl/QkIHDY

The Wrap: Vol 1

This post is a test of my new idea. Now that my schedule is changing (insert grumbling here), I know I won’t be able to blog as much as I have been. I’m going to try – try being the key word – to post The Wrap on Saturday. It will give an overview of the past week, a kind of summary all things Denise.

Feel free to give me comments/ feedback 🙂 Continue reading “The Wrap: Vol 1”
