Thank you, readers! <3

As I write this, Flying Monkeys (Drunk Monkeys 6) is currently up to #6 on BookStrand’s menage bestseller list. Thank you, readers!!! <3 Also, thank you to everyone who’s purchased Geek Chic (Bleacke Shifters 2) and Hubby’s book, Dancing on a Tightrope. I know there’s been a lot of negativity in bookland lately, so I … Read More

Monday Mish-Mash, Music Style.

When I posted the two Meghan Trainor videos the other day, I left out another great rendition of All About That Bass, an a cappella version by group Home Free. You HAVE to see a group of country guys singing this song. Great rendition, funny, light-hearted, and still sounding phenomenal. Enjoy! 🙂 Click here if … Read More

Dear Readers.

Dear Readers: I am NOT rich. Just because I’m a “published author” doesn’t mean I’m making Stephen King money. (Don’t I wish!!) I know that readers who pay to buy my books and who give me word of mouth advertising by pimping me out are the people who pay my “salary,” so to speak. Without … Read More

No corkscrew? No problem.

Guess this wouldn’t work on fizzy wines, but here’s something I never knew: you can open wine bottles with a shoe. Yep. Just watch. For those of you about to embark on Labor Day vacays without your corkscrew, you’re welcome. (Here’s the link if the embedded video window doesn’t open.)

I miss Buffy.

There, I said it. I miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Yes, I have seasons 1 and 2 on DVD (and plan to eventually get them all). Yes, I know they’re probably available on Netflix or something. That’s not the point. … Read More

Respect the bubble!

Been a pretty horrible 24 hours in the news cycle. I’ve declared the Trybe a happy place. So if you’re on Facebook, feel free to come join us in our virtual blanket fort. I hear someone brought a Spirograph, and Sparkles the unicorn has been running around snorting confectioner’s sugar. Prayers and blessings to … Read More

Extending iPhone battery life.

Yeah, yeah, I know. If you don’t have an iPhone, feel free to ignore this. I, however, LOVE my iPhone, after switching from a Droid X2 (and having had the Droid X before that). I’ll freely admit I’m a full-on Mac girl now. Okay, this is for those of you who notice after an iPhone … Read More

It’s all fun and games until someone Googles “spider p*rn.”

Ah, the Interwebz. Purveyor of recipes, cat videos, the Mighty ‘Zon…and spider porn. No, you probably do not want to Google search that and click on the Images tab. (It’s okay. I’ll wait while you do.) So how the fark did I end up running a search for THAT? Well, I’m a sadist. And despite … Read More

Fargo Episode 1 – my blant.

*Spoiler Alert* You have been warned thusly, and so begins my blant (blog+rant). It’s taken me a week to process how I feel about episode one of Fargo (on FX, episode two is on tonight). Yes, I realize it’s not supposed to be a reboot of the movie. However. … Read More

Oh, the things you can see…

I love going to the flea market. We don’t get to go very often. But when we do, it’s always fun to do our own version of Jay Leno’s skit that he used to do on the Tonight Show about things from the dollar store. Now, the naked ladies aside, I got a giggle out … Read More
