Happy Sunday, everyone!
Is it Spring yet? I think it’s trying, but so far we’ve just got the typical April showers bring May flowers thing going on. But we’re not going to let that get us down!
You know the drill. First we will list all the things we’re happy & grateful for this week, & then if there’s something you aren’t particularly happy about, you can join the gals on my HappyBookers YahooGroup where our very own Darling Laura J. has created Bitch & Moan Monday as a way for us to vent about the everyday annoyances that get us down. It’s a blast, believe me. And very therapeutic.
So this week, I AM HAPPY to be a double finalist for Orange County RWA’s “Book Buyer’s Best” Award for KNOCK ME FOR A LOOP & INHERITING HIS SECRET CHRISTMAS BABY. Yes, I know we already did the big Happy Dance celebration here in The Dungeon, but I’m still absolutely delighted. It makes me smile every time I think about it. :chick
I AM HAPPY that there’s a Burn Notice marathon on USA Network today—nothing better than spending the day writing during a good television marathon :howyoudoin —leading up to the premiere of the two-hour special Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe. I loves me some Jeffrey Donovan, but I loves me some Bruce Campbell, too. Yeah, baybee! :us
I AM HAPPY to finally have my MUST LOVE VAMPIRES copyedits finished & turned in. I’ll be chatting more about that this week, but I was really happy with how they turned out & even happier to see how well the story held together after being away from it for so long.
And I AM HAPPY that I can get back to my “Dynasties: The Kincaids” story now that the MUST LOVE VAMPIRES copyedits are in the mail. It is not easy to jump from a Harlequin Desire set in Charleston, South Carolina, to hot & sexy vampires living in Las Vegas, Nevada, then back again in the space of a week. Oy. :knock
So that’s my list for this week. How about you? What are you happy about that you’d like to share? :jump
And now to announce the winner of this week’s Free Book Friday giveaway…
:getdown Jessica!!! :getdown

I am happy it’s finally spring. I am happy my roses are blooming. I am happy I am now employed again. I am happy that the Doctor gave me a clean bill of health and I am happy that there are books to escape in. Have a great sunday. BTW if they don’t want the Jules Bennett book I’ll take one off your hands. :angel

I’m still waiting for some happy, but I know it will come. Trouble with getting blood work done, then the loss of a friend and fun day with the family ruined due to cold weather and rain. An almost broken finger….Oh wait, I’m suppose to do this on Monday.
So……It’s not been all bad. I have managed to get 5 scarves knitted up since Thursday. Tomorrow I will be go back to the surgeon and should be released.
