This n' That

I'm brain-dead. It must be the Sudafed and Coffee. I've been trying to think what to blog all morning. It shouldn't be that difficult. Maybe I'm trying too hard.

I could talk about the rising cost of gas---ugh! Way too depressing. Texas hasn't been as bad some areas. I saw on the news it was getting worse.

My yard is cracking because it's so dry here. We really need rain. The weatherman said that we had a thirty percent chance of rain over the next few days. Why doesn't he tell it like it really is. We have a seventy percent chance it won't rain.

I figured out the difference between Atlanta, Ga and Texas while I was at the RWA conference. Atlanta was like walking into a sauna and Texas is like walking into an oven.

I'm so ready for fall.

I'm less than 100 pages having my current book finished. Woo-hoo. Hey, I can't stay depressed for long--summer cold or not. And Rosemary Laurey, Dianne Castell and I are counting down the days until Texas Bad Boys hits the shelves. It's already available for pre-order. I always get excited when I have a new book coming out. Keep watching for a fun new contest.

Okay, back to the grindstone :)

Hi Karen,

maybe I should send you some rain, we got lots of it here in Germany, after the heatwave broke here.

Texas Bad Boys is really a fantastic book!

I'm with you on wanting fall. I'm sick of the heat, and I'm ready for a wardrobe change. I got a couple of L.L. Bean catalogs today featuring wool blazers. Can the dreaded winter parkas be far behind? LOL.

I'm really looking forward to TBB. Lots of good books coming out in late August/early September.

Karen, I hope you start to feel better soon.

The weather has been crazy this summer that is for sure. We have been getting lots of hot weather, with rolling thunder and lightening storms....which I totally dislike.

Fall would be nice, but I am not ready for winter. It gets too cold here.

Saving up my money for the terrific books coming out at the end of the month and into September.

HI Danny! You're so sweet! Yes, send rain!! I may have to get the candles out and chant tonight. LOL

Hey Barb V, I so hear you on this heat. I'm just dragging around the house.

Canadianfriend, We've gotten some lightning but no rain. With the lightning comes the grass fires.
We might see snow a couple of times a year. Freezing cold here is anything below 30 LOL. That's one thing going for Texas--we have milder winters.

Thanks everyone for all your support! I appreciate it.

You described Atlanta perfectly...and it still feels like a sauna here.

HI karen,

Hope you are feeling better soon. this has been one sucky summer. Its even to hot to go to the pool unless you want to stay in the water 24/7.

I so want fall or just temps in the 70's would be nice. I don't like waking up and its already 90 out. Yikes.

TBB is awesome. I worked on my review at lunch today so I am almost ready to post it. As soon as we get out copies at my bookstore I will put it out at my staff pick.

I have to say that except for maybe one - two weeks of 90+ degree weather, it's been beautiful here in Chicago, plus we have had rain. Yesterday I think it was 83 degrees - perfect.

But I'm sending you lots of rainy thoughts, and inspiration for more stories :)

Karen, I hope you feel better soon. I think where I live in Northern California is one of the few places in the U.S. that's not super, super hot. I always think to myself, "I'm never going to complain about the weather here again" after I experience humid, hot weather in other places.
