Weekly News & Goals – 2/27/11

You’re probably aware by now that I succumbed to a serious head cold last week, which was a rather unpleasant experience I do not recommend if you can help it. My apologies for missing Friday’s chapter of The Biker’s Wench. The story continues as usual on Tuesday – thanks for waiting.

This week, it’s back to business as usual with a very full posting schedule around here. Some fun stuff coming up for you, including a guest post and giveaway by fantasy author Amy Rose Davis on Wednesday, and two sample sex scenes from Carol & I on Tuesday and Thursday for the Sex on the Page series. I hope you’ll join us – I think it’s interesting to see how very different Carol & I approach sex in our respective genres.

This Week on The Variety Pages

Tuesday: Chapter 50 of The Biker’s Wench

Wednesday: Author Interview/Giveaway – Amy Rose Davis

Thursday: Sex on the Page – Sample Scene from Tempest

Friday: Chapter 51 of The Biker’s Wench

Saturday: On the Bookshelf – On the Big White Oak by Corrine Coleman

Chris Brett posted a lovely review of Tempest on his blog yesterday, along with an interview with me, so check that out at The Pirate’s Bounty . If you’re interested in winning a print/ebook combo of Tempest, I’m giving one away over there, so leave a comment and your email address. Or just stop in to say hi, and see who my hero is.

And if you’re interested in my sales stats for the last couple months, stop in at Beyond the Words on Tuesday.

Goal Reports

Thanks to that stupid cold, about the only things I got done last week were the short story (which I’ll be releasing this Friday), and more sleep (because I really, really needed it to combat the cold). Otherwise, it was pretty much a wash, which always annoys me. I’m looking forward to getting caught up again, even though it will be a chore.

Goals for the Week


  • Edit, format & upload The Entertainer for release Friday.

  • 5 new serial scenes

  • Crits for 3 people


  • Update BSB site with new release info.

  • Send out 2 newsletters

  • Order business cards!!

  • Catch up on an interview & other requests I couldn’t get to last week.


  • Catch up manicure (one week off, and I’ve got broken nails everywhere)

  • Sleep enough to finish healing

  • Catch up personal finances (today’s payday)

That’s what’s going on around here this week – what are you up to? Anything fun, or are you playing catch-up too?

    Glad to hear that you are feeling better :-)It sucks doesn’t it when we are reminded that we are human, and everyday we plan to work might not work out so well.

    Good luck with this week’s goals 🙂
