Obsessed? Who me?

As you can tell, my obsession for this band continues... my gosh, I've even got the hubby and daughter hooked on 30 Seconds to Mars. Lol. We can't get the songs out of our heads, and can't get enough of listening to these awesome tunes. Man, this is one brilliant band!

I'm very, very impressed with Jared Leto's songwriting skills, as well as his musical talent, and the way he sounds when he sings live. Being in a band REALLY suits him too. ;) And I don't need to go into how cool the band sounds as a unit. I'll just say: AWESOME! :D

Anyway, enough fan-girl gushing for now, I think.

You know, it's our 8th Wedding Anniversary today. Yay! Wow. Very cool. We're hoping that the hubby gets out at a good time so we can go out for dinner somewhere nice. Knowing us, we'll probably end up at the HRC. Love that place. Good music, cool atmosphere, yummy food... and it's one of the first places the hubby took me to when we started dating.

Damn, the naughty and very cheeky kitty has just jumped in front of the computer screen. This is his new thing. If he wants to get my attention, he gets in front of the 'puter. Darn it, he's too clever. :/ Oh good, he moved. Heeeee. Heeeeee.

I really surprised myself yersterday, and got through the entire second draft revision of my Vampire Oracle novella. The word count is now below 20k - 19,999 words. Lol. I deleted some stuff, added some stuff and made a few notes on the side. There are just a few (minor) Savannah details that I need to double check before I get started on the third draft. I'm still very excited about this tale, and found it very easy to read and get engrossed in the story. I hope everyone else that reads it feels the same.

Today I got started on a X-mas/Horror with Romantic elements story I want to rewrite a little. It's a completed novella that I want to enhance so I can sub it. At the moment I only got 7 pages in because my daughter woke up really early. Yeah, if it's not the lappy, it's the kid... or the kitty. Gee!

So last night I picked up another book. I'm in a Shomi-kinda mood. You know, last week I cast the hero and heroine in my own Shomi idea. And since then, their story has been circling around inside my head. How cool. Anyway, I started this book and got 60 pages in before bedtime. Man, it's really, really cool so far. I wanna get back to it. Lol.

This Friday I will be the featured author over at Mandy M Roth's blog. Aphrodite's Apples is featured this week. So check it out from Mon-Fri so you can read some cool interviews with some very talented authors... and me. ;) Lol. Click on the graphic to get there. It'll be a cool week!

Speaking of AA, do you know that I've got two different eBooks being released over at Aphrodite's next month? Yay, I do! :) Very excited.

Okay, I better get going for now. Here's hoping that today turns out as productive as yesterday... can't wait to listen to 30STM again today!
