Monday Morning Updates: Girlz With Guns, Velveeta-Free Reviews, & Mamma Mia



1. I survived the weekend. My 9 year old daughter's laser tag party was a big hit. 15 screaming kids ran around shooting each other, consuming enormous quantities of sugar products, and producing ear-piercing screams that could shatter fine crystal. All in all, a fine party.

2. I am tickled that the sales for Sweet Inspiration are popping up this Christmas. I got a great review from Dead Trees and Silver Screens. I think it's hilarious that Amanda calls it "Velveeta-free." I personally love cheesy stories, so I wouldn't mind some Velveeta with my book, but that's just me.

3. Historical romance author Mia Marlowe is hosting me today at her blog. We are discussing my penchant for beardy men, Oskar Klaus, and tube tops. Stop by and leave a comment--Mia is giving away a copy of Sweet Magik, as well as one of her own stories, A Duke For All Seasons or My Lady Below Stairs. I love the name Mia...it reminds me of Mamma Mia, which reminds me of ABBA, which reminds me....

I'm so glad the party was a hit. Congrats on the review. I'm finally reading Sweet Inspiration now. Just started last night. I'm not as fast as you though. :) I was back in my 20s.
