Yes this weekend I didn’t get anything done, I take that back, I did get some research material for the novel I’m working on that takes place in Austin. I picked up two travel books one on Austin and the other on TX. Yes I grew up in Dallas and I should know “everything” about TX but I don’t. I didn’t want to keep bugging my friends that live in Austin since they all have better things to do than answer my questions. I did ask them some but for the more general things I bought the books.
Saturday night I celebrated my friend and neighbor’s birthday which is when I got toasted. I’m not sure when I became a lightweight but I have. I had a total of 5 shots which toasted me. This never use to happen. Four of the shots were Tequila, really good Tequila, which I’ve had before. I’ve never gotten toasted after five shots, not even from Tequila. The last shot was of a Rum, again nothing special it was only one shot. I drank water before and after, during the party. So this whole turning 34 is not something I like if I get toasted after 5 shots. Personally I don’t care about getting older, the only issue I’m having is that I’m getting toasted.
The other reason I didn’t get work done is that a family member went in the hospital and things aren’t looking so hot. They are asking the family members to donate blood.
I’m in love with the illustrations I saw today. Legacy has been changed it’s no longer a tree but I’m not telling you anymore than that. All I will say is that it looks wicked cool and it fits a scene in the book to a T, best part Mary hadn’t even read the scene and she nailed it. I also saw the sketch for Blood, and Little Boy Blue I think they are going to turn out pretty wicked too. When Mary is ready I will have a spot for her information so you guys can check out her work, and I don’t just mean what she’s doing for me. I can’t wait for you guys to see what she’s come up with.
Did a pitch today!!! I also get to go see the illustrator she has some ideas on paper I can’t wait. I’ll let you know how it goes. I’m excited!!!
A house’s thirst for blood, along with the secret of murders that a demon doctor performed, will expose a family secret when a young empathic law student inherits her family’s long forgotten haunted house. Things get interesting when deceased relatives arrive to help her learn about her Legacy.
After attending her Great Uncle’s funeral, Alexandria Galinari, learns that the family mansion she’s inherited is on the outskirts of Boston. On her first official week in the house she learns that the house is haunted and that she is being watched by a man named Brenton who is an ex-special ops Captain recently escaped from Leavenworth. Brenton made a pack with the demonic evil doctor who wants to come back from the dead and take over the house but needs Alexis to do it. The same doctor who performed murders in the house decades before. To settle the house’s full time guest Alexis must learn about its history, her family and what it all means for her while trying to help the FBI and her boss catch Brenton.
I finished reading Hexbound by Chloe Neill and this week I’ll but my thoughts up on that. Last week was crazy between doctor appointments and my workshop but I did get the hook figured out so I hope you like it. Let me know what you think. I’m going to try and work on the website I haven’t had a chance to do that lately but yesterday I did meet with an illustrator who’s going to work up some sketches for Legacy, Blood, Little Boy Blue and Wicked Cool Flight. I can’t what to see what Mary comes up with.
Going to work on Blood and Legacy this week. With all the traveling we’ve been doing I have ideas bouncing around my head that I can’t get read of.

I have so many wicked cool ideas to add to Blood that it might become more of a novalle than a short story but we’ll have to wait and see. The journey has been helpful even as I’ve gotten sick with a migraine and had to vomit which isn’t fun but will add to Blood’s content perfectly. We even saw snow today which I think I can use during the main characters travels. So the drive is truly working out well for research.
It isn’t making me feel any better about Artemis. I still miss him and wish he was traveling with us, but I know he’s with Cleo and Ladybug playing and having a good time. When we get to Dallas I’ll put pictures of Arty up like I did Cle. I just haven’t been able to yet, I don’t have all the pictures with me.
