(no subject)

My little guy's fever is back, and now he's complaining about his brain hurting. He seemed so much better today; I hate these flash fevers.

So I'm going to leave him home from pre-k tomorrow and cancel my guitar lesson so that I can keep him in bed all day to fully fight whatever it is his little body is trying to get rid of. Another week of practicing will do me good. And hopefully a day of being pampered will be what Alex needs.

Random facts

I got tagged by psubrat and I'm looking for distraction, so I'm actually doing a meme.

Write a journal entry with six random facts about yourself. Then, pick six of your friends list and tag them - no tag backs. These rules should be included in your entry.

1. I'm double-jointed. This is both a good and bad thing. It gives me great flexibility, but it also means my joints are a lot looser than normal and creates problems when there might not necessarily be one.

2. I've never lived at a single address for longer than 2 years since turning 18.

3. I have a small suitcase filled with spelling bee trophies that I can't bring myself to part with. It even traveled across the ocean and back with me.

4. My closet is organized by garment type, color [from light to dark], and sleeve length. For tops that get folded, they are separated by sleeve length with clean items always going on the bottom of the stack to ensure rotation of clothes. Yes, I'm mildly obsessive/compulsive about it, lol.

5. What's considered "literary" fiction mostly bores me to tears. I read to escape and be entertained, which is why I tend to prefer heavily plotted stuff instead of character pieces.

6. I adore board games of all types. And puzzles. Christmas isn't Christmas without hours of family game time.

Review for Two Lives in Waltz Time

So, last August, I chipped in for a group ad for Chains of Jericho and Two Lives in Waltz Time for the December issue of the biggest review publication in the romance market, the Romantic Times. One of the perks of advertising is that they pick random books to review, and I got lucky when they selected Waltz. Now, this is *the* pub to review you, mainly because they're notoriously tough and it has a huge readership.

Well, the issue hit some of the newsstands today. And sadbhyl picked it up to let me know what it said.

I got 4 1/2 stars!!!

Dean's tale of sweeping erotic romance has compelling characters, delightful settings and a magical plot. This charming time-travel romance is sinfully addictive, and readers are going to hate turning the last page.

Hee. I'm sinfully addictive. :D

Huge kudos to sadbhyl for her 4-star review for And a Star to Steer Her By, too. We so rock. :)
