Redesigned my blog - Take a look!

I've been reorganizing my blog instead of writing. Go on--humor me!! Come and see how it has changed before Blogger redesigns everything again and I have to play with it some more.

John Carter

Just saw John Carter last night. Great story and lots of action. I love time travel stories and this one had a cool twist. Set mostly in the late 1800s.

I've joined Goodreads!

I finally took the advice of many friends and created an author profile on Goodreads. Come and visit there if you want to view my book list. This blog is connected now so anything I post here will appear there, too.

Recommended Read for the week...

Even though I write romance, I'll read anything, if it's good, so my tastes vary. Sometime back, I read Twilight, based on a recommendation from my critique partner. I had never read a young adult novel, but was instantly engrossed in this one, to say the least. Since then I have become a very avid reader of YA and have found some really good books. What I like most about them is the creativity and vividness of the characters.

This week I finished "Never Cry Werewolf" by Heather Davis. It's a cute story about two kids at a summer camp for troubled kids. Here's an excerpt:

Moonlight can totally change your life.
And it all starts so simply.
You. Him
The moon.
You're toast.

The rest is this good, too....

New Years Resolutions

Of course, I have a few--to write more and write more often! Another one is to update my website regularly and to post writing news to this blog every week. I want to read more books this year, get better organized and lose some weight. You didn't think I'd leave that last one out, did you? Sure, and after I just had a bowl of ice cream topped with Reddy Whip. But I am working on losing weight. Really.

Seriously, I am resolved to writing more and refuse to be distracted by stupid stuff, like television, that wastes time. I'm not going to quit watching TV altogether (what--miss Downton Abbey??), but I am going to cut way back and spend the time working on my writing. To make sure I follow through on it, I'm going to post my work every week. See, now that I've opened my big mouth, I have to do it. Good.
