Uhh....Seriously, we're waiting!!

      I know, I know.  You've probably been wondering where we have been.  Well, truth be told, your guess is as good as mine!   Wandering around the corridors of reality and looking--in earnest--for the emergency exit.  Real life has a way of derailing our engines and putting them on a completely different track.  
      
     During the spring, my kids happened.  From sports to plays, the driving is endless.  During the summer, my kids--again--happened.  Though, in Hartford, Hereford and Hampshire hurricanes hardly ever happen.  (Sorry about that, I had a moment.)  In the fall....do we see the pattern here?  Good.  So, between the kids' activities and school, hubby's work, my work, still remodeling the house, and my newest occupation as college student, I have very little room on my plate for cookies.  But damn-it, I like cookies.  I would love to roll naked in cookies!  Only metaphorically, I have no wish to explain those crumbs at the next gynie visit.  That, ladies, is called thinking ahead.  
Just a tip.
     
     I was looking over some past posts and had to chuckle.  Alright, I guffawed.  I really think I'm funny.  (The vacation post was a good one.)  I got to thinking, "you know," I thought, "it's really mean spirited of him to drink that coffee in front of me like that.  Does he have to be so smug about it?!"  I thought this because I was currently in class, and, my instructor was, indeed, being smugly superior about his current state of coffeed bliss.  I did not neglect to mention to him that this was hurtful.  He merely smiled, I almost threw my shoe at his head.  I was, fortunately for my g.p.a., too tired to remove my tenny. 
    
     Anyhow, and to get back on topic, in all our cases(Moira and Willow, too.) real life got in the way.  Moira has been wrestling her own family train and Willow is consumed with school.  She is a senior this year and has a full load of classes, including Calculus and college English.  She's looking at colleges and studying for the S.A.T.s.  Yikes!  Hopefully we can get back to posting for you, our loyal readers, on a somewhat regular basis.  I know for all of us reading has been a valued, if meagerly managed, pastime.  At least we can try to post little anecdotes about the happenings in our harried lives.    

     So, in closing, I would like to say "Never taunt a lady who has no coffee!"  Safety first, you know.

  1. Busy lives can make for a less busy blog. And personally, that's okay because I totally understand, especially given my own single-parent, full-time gig, writing, marketing, promoting (not really doing a good job on those last two lol!!)

    So keep it going Brazen Broads and we the readers will be here.

  2. So glad to see you back! I wish there were more hours in the day. Actually, more at night would be cool, too, then I could sleep more. LOL

  3. Thanks, it feels good to be back. It can get crazy and hectic, but it's nice to be able to take time for yourself, too. Also, more sleeping hours would never make me sad!

Fantasy Writing, Vampires, And A Dash Of Romance...




The title of this book is somewhat deceiving as the story is told from Michael Allen's perspective. Beginning with his normal young adult life in Chicago and taking the reader through his brutal transition to vampire, this novel continues into the present day where our hero leads a solitary life. Haunted and tortured by the memories surrounding the night he was bitten, Michael maintains a lonely existence, fighting against 'The Beast' and hating the very nature of what he is.

When Michael begins hearing a strange voice and finds himself inexplicably drawn to Kiara, a local young woman with a life almost as strange as his own, a longing takes root deep inside him - a longing that could end in disaster. What Michael doesn't know is that Kiara has secrets of her own, some she doesn't even know she keeps. Together, Michael and Kiara discover the peace of self-acceptance through their unconditional acceptance of one anot…

I've not started this novel yet, but it intrigued me as I browsed my local library's shelves.  The reviews vary widely, so I imagine this will be a 'loved it/hated it' sort of read.  Here's a teaser to get us all started, and I'll post a review when I've finished.  We'll see how this Broad rates this controversial read.

Pg. 1 - 'It is one of the wonders of the twenty-first century that a beautiful, brilliant and broad-shouldered man could reach almost forty …
