I Did It!

So on my way to Rhode Island to be a hair model for my friend’s show (I know, again, 😉 She must have liked my work ha ha) I got a call. Barnes and Nobles would like to offer me the position. 😀 SWEET!

That’s awesomely good news. They’ll be calling me this week with the training dates and such. I’m actually quite giddy with excitement. Ha, ha.

In the meantime, I’m trying to catch up on sleep which I’ve been really short on lately. I still feel exhausted, but it’s better, I’m thinking more clearly at least. Although, I have to say there were some pretty funny moments where I said really random things in public. Ha, ha.

While I tried to get my brain back in functioning order, I finished two really great books:

Caressed by Ice by Nalini Singh, who’s Psy/Changeling world is my new obsession. Her characters are bold and strong. It’s amazing to see how many there are and how truly individual she’s made them. 😀 It makes me smile when I see the older characters come into the new stories… I particularly loved Judd, because he was such a stubborn male, and unlike the changeling heroes who’ve been wild and needed taming, he needed to be broken. 🙂 Good stuff.

Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning. I’ve read Ms. Moning’s Highlander Series which was amazing… and I expected a lot from this story. I wasn’t disappointed, if that’s what it sounds like, but I think I was surprised. It’s a very different style for her. The 1st person POV reads very strongly, but it caught me off guard. I wasn’t sure I liked it at first and then she introduced Jericho Barrons. And I was like, ok, changed my mind. Ha, ha. The man’s an enigma I’m dying to figure out. Which is why I nearly yelled at the book when it just ENDED. I know it’s part of a series… but umm… hello? Books aren’t supposed to just END. So, I’m waiting for Bloodfever to quench my thirst.

The reading has been good for my writing too. I’ve managed to get my WIP to a hefty 68k. I’m a bit stuck, my plot’s gotten a tad bit strange… but I have to fix it up and work on it. I’ll get it right. Hopefully.

  1. WOOOHOO on the job offer! Chica, that’s like a dream come true. Oh… working in a place surrounded by books. Only one job would be better – working as bartender at an all-male strip joint. *LOL* Congrats!!!

  2. Congrats on the job offer. If I worked at Barnes I’d probably spend all my pay checks there, LOL. It would be so fun though 🙂

    I have a hard time reading 1st person books. I usually skip over them which means I’ve probably missed out on some really good books.
