I've also been working on the 7th Cyborg Seduction book about Krell. I'm having WAY TOO MUCH fun writing it. I love mouthy characters. LOL! I have a lot of fun with cyborgs since they are dealing with women from Earth and our slang that only Sky (cyborg) understands since he studies Earth often. I DO plan to write Sky's story. I get a lot of emails asking about him. With Krell you'll get a peek into the past when Cyborgs were still living on Earth. Yeah...I'm having way too much fun writing this. It's probably why it's taking so long. I don't want to give him up!!! I'm loving Krell.
My family and I had a 'vacation day'. We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific. It was really neat seeing all the tanks of cool stuff. We even got to watch them feed the larger fish with divers in the tanks. I took a bunch of videos so the kids can watch it over and over and over!!! I have to edit out the sounds first though because if you've ever filmed with other people around....you know why! Fifty voices talking in the background. I'll find some neat, mellow music for the kids and they can hopefully watch it and um...fall asleep! We hit the gift shop on the way out and of course I HAD to buy myself some stuffed animal turtles (2 of them). I have NO CLUE what to do with them. The first night they adorned my night table. Last night Mr. Laurann thought it would be funny to put one of them on Dude's back to peer at me over his ears (my 2 foot gargoyle next to my monitor). Currently the stuffed turtles are hanging out on my printer looking huggable. Yeah...I know. But they were just too tempting to not buy! LOL!!! They look like Squirt from Finding Nemo. Who could resist??? (okay...most of you probably could have but not me...) We did buy the kids lots of stuff too.
I love turtles! I had one as a kid. It broke my heart when we went on vacation and someone stole him. Yeah. Sometimes people SUCK! I never forgot King Tut. He had that whole 'regal' thing going on about him. My daughter was recently given a turtle and he's adorable. He swims around in his tank looking way too cute for words. I almost want to steal him and find room for him on my desk next to my gargoyle but you know...she'd cry...so I guess not! Bad parenting 101 to confiscate your child's pet because you want it for yourself. LOL!!! So here's a picture I took outside on our way home.
In other news...I wrote some anthology stories and they were accepted by Ellorascave. I mentioned it before but I still don't have a release date or an official cover. Here's a link to Jaid Black's blog talking about it. LINK I always wanted to be a part of an anthology and I feel so honored to be in books with such amazing, talented authors! As soon as I get the official word about a release date and the official covers...I'll post! I'm ecstatic!!!
I hope everyone is well and happy! School starts at the end of the month and I have to admit...I'm looking forward to some quiet time again during the day. It's been rough with a house full of people. I can relate to Vampires now with their odd hours...only I don't burst into flames when the sun rises. I just realize I worked all night again and should have gone to bed hours before! It's slowed me down a bit but I'm getting in some word count and that's all that matters. LOL!
I updated my author video if you want to take a look at it.
