Random updates and lying to my health coach...

 I have been a lucky sucker in this whole publishing business. I have met, both online and in person, the most amazing people. 

My next book Love's a Witch is in line on the Samhain Publishing website getting ready to be unleashed on the world. (It's only $3.85 right now if you pre-order in the Samhain Store. Ya case you wanted to order it. *subtly drops hint*)

I am working on blog posts and promo ideas for that book, but what I am really working on is my 2015 release schedule. 

Book three in the Hart Clan Hybrids series is still on my computer, because Shelly is giving me a hard time. Imagine that, right?

So I distracted myself with some robosex. If you follow me on twitter (@RoxyMews) you have heard me babbling about this for awhile. I hope to have some official announcements regarding that project soon. 

I can't use con recovery as an excuse anymore. That's only good for a week max. So I needed another excuse to not do what I am supposed to. Sooo...I got a kitten! 

Enjoy the incredible cuteness
We have been struggling to kittenproof the house and keep the dogs from chasing him. With hubby working lots of overtime it's been a struggle getting much of anything done, but it has been full of adorable kitten fun.

I have also been trying to lose weight, and overall be a healthier person. Writing tends to involve a lot of sitting in front of a computer and a diet consisting of coffee and chocolate. I packed on a few. So I am trying to eat better, get some exercise, you know...all the unfun things.  

I signed up for a health coach to hold me accountable. The only problem with this is...I totally lie to him. 

But I feel really bad about it! That counts for something, right?  It makes me eat better and work out the couple days before he calls. And my clothes totally weigh the extra five pounds I deduct from my weight. *watches out for lightning*

So in summary...I can't announce anything official, other than the fact that I have acquired a kitten.

Distracting you with kitten pictures!
BUT make sure you save some space on your e-reader for Love's a Witch. Below are some easy links for your 1-click desires.

SAMHAIN PUBLISHING **best price at the moment**

And just a little tease...because you get to hear a male voice in this upcoming book. I can't wait for you all to get inside Craig's head.

NOW...I need to get back to wrangling Shelly. If I don't get her under control soon, I think my editor may reach through my computer and smack me. 

Let me know what you are hoping to hear about in the trilogy. Because after the end of June...I wrap up writing it!

The Romantic Times Booklover's Convention (#RT14) is just a week away!

Some people are reading every post they can find about RT, and some are so sick of it all that they are running screaming from social media.

Me? I am in a very real panic of how to get everything done that I want to. I am trying to tidy up the story line of my Hart Clan Hybrids book #3. Seriously, Shelly is being difficult. It's not my fault.

I am also trying to figure out what to pack, and where my luggage is. I don't travel all that much (read at all) so I always get a bit nervous around this time.

I will be traveling with Samara Blu. She's a new author, and she is in charge of fun. We are both on the RT Guidebook app so feel free to find and connect with us. We are always looking for fun places to visit and people to meet.

Below are the events I will be participating in. I am linking to the RT convention site, so if you somehow are missing out on this fabulousness, you can add it to your schedule pronto.

Tuesday May 13th

Cinema Craptastique - I will be playing along from home, so you will have to see me online. My flight leaves at 6am on Wednesday. I will be hopped up and tweeting as @RoxyMews along with the movie using the hashtag #RTCC. Make sure your twitter app is up and running, or if you aren't attending the con, this is a great way to play from home.  There is also a Facebook event set up for this, so check out all the details HERE.

Wednesday May 14th

Mardi Gras World Carnivale  - I am going to be a "float walker" at this event. I am going to have on a sash identifying me as a Samhain Publishing Author and from what I have heard, I will have beads to fling at all of you. Make sure you stop by, because according to the schedule I have been given it is going to be an AMAZING party.

Thursday May 15th

Samhain Saints and Sinners Party - This event is going to be an absolute blast. I am going to be with Jodi Redford representing our group blog Lust With a Laugh.

Even Mary Hughes will be sending some goodies for everyone who ventures over to the Sinner side of the party space to sit at our table.

I'm bringing buttons and magnets and some more beads, because we all need some beads to wear around New Orleans.

I will be adding a few more events that I am attending for fun, but since Samara is in charge of fun, who knows where the night will take us?

To find me, just look for my swag bag with my book covers on it (see below and pet your computer screen if so inclined). My purple hair will probably also let you find me fairly easily. And before you ask, yes, it's my natural color. ;p

A Love Worth Biting For (Out NOW)
Love's a Witch (June 2014)

Come up and say hello. I'd love to chat with everyone I can. Can't wait to meet all of you!
