Waited too Late

Every year, I convince myself that THIS is the year we’re going to do our Christmas shopping early. Get it over with in September, or something like that. Guess how much Christmas shopping I’ve done? That’s right. NONE. I even waited too late to properly shop for Izzy’s birthday, since it seems like every reputable…

State of the Black Romance Novel

I recently ran across a forum thread on Goodreads that left me feeling rather disappointed. The gist of it was there was no interest in the black romance novel. That people would much rather read interracial, or even white romance. They seemed to be of the opinion that all black romance does is perpetuate negative…

Looking Forward

November was quite a busy month! Now that December has arrived, I am greatly looking forward to the things this month will bring. •The end of this semester. I’ve said it before, but I’m kinda over school. Just for right now though, lol. I’m anticipating all A’s, or at least mostly A’s, so it has…

Feels like – Randoms

It’s 23 degrees here right now. But according to my app, it “feels like” 16…..O_o I understand heat index and all of that, but dagnabbit, if it “feels like” 16 freaking degrees, that’s what it is! I woke up to 19 sales of my novel, Love and Other Things. This makes me feel all tingly!…

Writing Myself Into a Corner

It’s 1am. Instead of doing something useful, (like getting some sleep, since I’m fighting an ear infection, and I have class in the morning) I’m sitting here in my bed, thinking about my book. I’ve put a lot of time, and a lot of energy, and lately, a lot of tears into this book. You…

So Over It!

Breastfeeding, that is. Seriously.  With the exception of the first maybe…two months, I have been struggling with my milk supply for the entirety of this round of breastfeeding.  I have sinus/allergy issues that won’t resolve themselves without antihistamines.  Antihistamines dry you out, and my milk supply isn’t immune from it.  I’m one of the *ahem*…
