The Best Of Times

I have the day off and I've been lazy for most of it. I think about all the cleaning I could be doing and then I pick up Monica McCarty's Highlander Unmasked again.

I was recently introduced to the hero and heroine who will star in book #3, and WOW!!! They're going to explode on the page once I figure out who they are, what they're conflicts are and why they're perfect for each other. All I know right now is he is HOT and she's so confused by him. Or maybe that's me. Hhmm, either way I don't care. I just know I haven't been this excited about new characters in a while. Well, yes, I was excited about Heather and Malcolm when I started TCAFS, but these 2 new characters bring about a different type of excitement. I can't really explain it yet, but I promise I will when I find the right words.

My heart patient relative came through her procedure all right and the doctor says she may not need another. But, one blood vessel was 90% blocked! Thank God she went to the doctor's when she did.

Kudos to my blog friend Jenna Black who writes paranormals for Dorchester. She just sold 3 more books! YAY!

Congratulations to Austin RWA member Laura Griffin whose debut romantic suspense novel, One Last Breath, just took over 1st place on the best-seller list here in Austin. YAY!

Oh, and of course, my New England Patriots beat the Dallas Cowboys yesterday!!! I took my life in my hands, wore my Patriots T-shirt and went out to have some food, some drinks and watch the game on a big screen. A fun time was had by all...well, the New England fans anyway. Now if some of that winning mojo could rub off on my Boston Red Sox for Game 3 of the American League Championship Series. Come to think of it, I need that winning mojo to rub off on me too! Come on, baby, Lexi needs a book contract!

The Dallas/Patriot game was pretty good:)

Ooh -- new characters to fall in love with. Nice.

I just re-fell in love with the characters in my current WIP. Things were in the dumps for a bit, but I'm back on track, so it's all good. And luckily, I *did* fall back in love with them -- 'cuz it would really suck if it turned out that, after a "break," I despised them. *:?)

Lexi said...

Crystal, at least one of my New England teams is winning!

Kerry, if you don't love them, who will, right?

Tez Miller said...

Ah, so you found me via the comments in Jenna Black's blog, aye?

Have a lovely day! :-)

Lexi said...

Ah, yes, Tez! I try to spend some quality time every few days glancing at new blogs. Thanks for stopping by!

Don't you love it when you meet new characters and just LOVE them!

And congrats on entering the GH!

Isn't it hard to live in Texas and be a fan of another team. I take lots of abuse for being a dirhard Saints fan.

Geaux Saints!
