You make my speakers go BOOM BOOM…

I don’t know about everyone else, but I absolutely love music. It can make you smile, laugh and sometimes even cry. Some writers use it to help inspire their muse. Artists have even been known to use it while they create their masterpieces. Whether it be on canvas, in sculpture or a mural, there are just so many ways to show the world our creative side.

My personal music tastes vary so greatly that I don’t think I can choose a ‘favorite’ type of music. When I was young my very first concert was Rick Springfield. Yes, that Rick Springfield. LOL. Hey it was a long time ago, what can I say? Then as I got a little older I was a HUGE Motley Crue fan. With that came all sorts of hair bands, Poison, Def Leppard and Kiss. Although I don’t really think you can call Kiss a hair band. Then I started growing up. I know what you’re thinking, Grow Up? My goodness why?? I know, I know.. it happens though, and with maturity and leaving the ranks of high school came my love of country music. As I’ve gotten older – which is only 29 by the way, regardless of what my drivers license says *wink* – I’ve broadened my musical preferences that much wider. Just when I think I would never listen to a certain type of music someone releases something that changes my mind.

My tastes are eclectic and I wouldn’t change that for anything. Music can inspire the mind, awaken the body and touch the soul. For those of you who know who Luke Bryan is, you understand where I got the title of today’s blog. His song, “Drunk On You” coins that phrase in the title and I think it can be applied in many different ways.

So, open your ears and your heart to the wonderful inspiration music can provide us. Oh and did I mention that I’m giving away an eBook today? Leave me a comment below telling me what one of your favorite songs this summer is and what you love about it. I’ll draw one random winner on the morning of 8/31/12 and that lucky commentator will win an eBook copy of my June release When Promise Meets Passion.

Also, I invite you all to take a peak at my new website and blog. They’ve been updated and are all sparkly and shiny. And if you’re on facebook, I love to be “LIKED” so please visit my FAN PAGE. You can see all my Siren Bookstrand titles HERE and all my Silver Publishing titles HERE.

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope you have found something that makes your speakers go BOOM BOOM.. 🙂

Oh my goodness…

I am a frequent guest at Melodee’s blog and being that she is one of my Siren Publishing sisters, I always enjoy visiting or chatting with her. In my previous posts I’ve discussed everything from chaotic daily life, to finding happily ever after and you would think that somewhere along the lines I found a way to better manage my time and be an efficiency wizard. Oh, but you would be wrong if you thought that. LOL.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have at least 3 internet windows open at once, if not more. Between email, facebook, twitter and writing, there are countless things going through my mind at all times. I shutter to think what a psychologist would think about the goings on inside my head. One minute I’m posting a quote on social networking sites, the next I’m returning an email and the whole time I’m thinking about my work in progress and where the story is going to go next. That doesn’t even count the real world. Oh yes, I know many of us may not believe it’s true, but the real world truly does exist. There are three dimensional people and everything! LOL

If it sounds chaotic, maybe even a little bit crazy, then you’re right. It is, but in a way I think many authors are exactly the same way. A million thoughts are running through our minds all at once. Maybe we’re all “crazy like a fox” or “evil geniuses”, I don’t know. I am sure there is an upside to being pulled in 20 different directions all at once. The only thing I can truly come up with is that my life is never boring! I get up and the chaos ensues. Then after a whirlwind day I lie down, close my eyes, telling myself without a doubt that tomorrow I will be the most organized and efficient woman. So much so that I will put Martha Stewart and the Stepford Wives to shame, but alas that doesn’t happen. Murphy’s Law rears its ugly head and before I know it it’s 11:30 and my breakfast is sitting on it’s plate – untouched and cold – just as it was when I put it beside the computer 3 hours ago.
I’m posting this guest blog late, can anyone guess why? If there is any confusion why, please re-read the first paragraphs of this post. LOL. Let’s face it – because I am coming to terms with it – I will never be super organized. I will never be Super Woman and I will never get every task I set out to accomplish done every day. My fiance may have gotten me a cape (do with that what you will…Haha) so I feel like I can accomplish anything, but each day I set out to push myself and give myself more task that even the most organized could get accomplished. It’s not that I can’t get things done, not that I don’t want to. It’s simply that I love what I do so much that I will keep piling tasks on top of my plate even knowing that it will take me awhile to get it done. So, I push myself, I try  harder, strive for perfection, and in the end hope that I eventually get the job done and do a bang up job! Oh, and I also hope to eat my breakfast too. LOL

PLEASE leave me a comment below letting me know I’m not alone. Surely there are others out there who have chaotic lives, right? Guys? Anyone?

And please take a look at my upcoming release, Intimate Seductions which is releasing August 23rd! It’s going to be a HOT one down in Texas!!!

Here’s to Happily Ever After in today’s crazy world…

Nearly one month ago I was a guest here on Melodee’s blog and wrote about chaos mixing with creativity. The basis of the post was trying to find a way to hurdle over those obstacles life throws at you every day when we are trying to get a laundry list of tasks done on a daily basis.You would think that in the past month things would have slowed down, at least a little. However, that just wouldn’t be the way Murphy – the evil law maker – would have it. LOL. Luckily since my last post I have been fortunate to experience something wonderful! So, while it’s made my schedule even more hectic and chaotic, I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

Drum roll, please…

July was filled with more than 4th of July fireworks for me…I GOT ENGAGED! To a very wonderful man – might I say – who’s been in my life for quite sometime. He did the whole kit and kaboodle too. He got down on one knee, said the most wonderful things and even made the ladies at the table next to us cry. It was absolutely perfect and I feel so lucky to have a real life prince charming to come in and sweep me off my feet. As romance writers we all write about happily ever after. Our heroines always get their man in the end. Isn’t that what we all want after all? That perfect someone to make everything worth while?

If you have already found your soul mate, hang on tight and don’t let go. Love is a precious commodity that too many take for granted in this day and age. And for those of you still looking, you will find it! If this adventure of falling in love with Mr. Right has taught me anything, it’s that there is someone out there who is the perfect fit for each and every one of us.

My days are still hectic and there are still countless things to do which I can never seem to get through, but at the end of the day I have someone encouraging me through the chaos, someone who makes sense of the craziness and makes it that much easier to grin and bear those mountains we must climb. So, open your hearts and let love find you!

Thanks for having me as a guest, Melodee. I had a fantastic time sharing my news! For those wishing to be just a little bit Impetuous, please follow the link below and read about my newest release with Silver Publishing!

Happy Reading everyone!!

What happens when Chaos mixes with Creativity?

In today’s world how do any of us get anything done? Sometimes it seems no matter how hard we plot and plan out our days we invariably end up running into a few roadblocks along the way. Things from leaving the house a few minutes late, getting stuck behind a train or in traffic, or finding out the one thing you went to the store for was also the one thing that you forgot. How we handle that moment of frustration when we want to pull our hair out is what truly matters.

As I write this it is nearly 6 o’clock on Wednesday night. My day was supposed to entail just three hours of running around. Between getting the kids to their events, grocery shopping, filling up the gas tank and a million and one other errands that three hours quickly turned into five. Then it was time to put the groceries away, start some laundry and bring in the trash cans. After all that was done, I finally was able to sit down and check emails and start getting some work done. I had originally planned to start writing three hours ago, but soon it will be time to make dinner. So, I ask you all what does one do when chaos interferes with our creativity?

I’m sure we’ve all had those days. It’s not just exclusive to Authors. Regardless of what one has on their agenda fate will always jump in to throw a few curve balls our way to keep us on our toes. Years ago you would have found me either screaming, crying or even a little bit of both. Like a fine wine, I have aged well and gained wisdom from those tantrums. The fact of the matter is at the end of the day what we don’t get done pales in comparison to what we do. We’re alive, we’re free, we have the sun and the stars and the knowledge that tomorrow will be a new day.

Life gives us obstacles because it keeps us fresh and thinking at all times. How do you handle those overwhelming times when you can’t get enough done? Do you throw your hands up in the air and give up?  Or do you grin and bear it, promising to try harder tomorrow? I hope it’s the latter. What you don’t accomplish today, I’m sure you will conquer tomorrow!
