So I was all set to write something interesting and writing-related here today, but I called my mom to ask about my grandparents (who are nonagenarians and Grampa isn't doing all that well) and I find out that my dad had shortness of breath issues back home and is visiting the hospital to do a bunch of tests to make sure he's okay.
Fortunately my brother is there and is keeping an eye on him while my mom helps my grandparents. We're not too worried, just making sure everything is kosher. There's a lot going on.
However, on the fun side of things, I'm getting closer to my finished product of Not a Dragon's Standard Virgin (finished meaning the rough draft). The Las Vegas Romance Writers group has a Writer's Challenge this year of Write a Novel in a Year, and this one is mine. And I'm this close! So that's what I'm working on this week. Here's Jonarrion's photo if you want to stare at him (he's the hero).
Last weekend was my birthday and I had a wonderful time hanging with my writing sisters and well as my family to celebrate. I received many wonderful gifts, the best of which was all the company and the knowledge that my new computer is on its way (it should be here tomorrow morning! Squeeeee!).
The most exciting thing I did to celebrate, however, was get myself a tattoo that I've always wanted. I drew it from a piece of art I'd seen on a paranormal romance novel (crazy, right?) and the artist at The Skin Factory here in Las Vegas modified it and inked it onto my skin. I love it and my husband spends a lot more time staring at my ass these days! He says it's exquisite. I'm taking it to mean both the ass and the tattoo! :D
This upcoming weekend I will be at the Erotic Authors Association's Conference Sex in Sin City going on at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino September 9th - 10th if you'd like to meet me (and no, I'm not going to show you the tattoo). It's going to be a fun time and a great place to meet several authors who write erotic romance and erotica. I hope you can join us.
That's all for now. If you get a chance, I'm still doing a giveaway for a copy of The Dungeon Gourmet by Nara Malone, so comment for your chance to win it! :D Good luck and have a great week. Happy reading!
