The Thing About the Golden Girls

They are inconsistent as all get out but I still love them. In season Rose’s love interest is Arnie, who appears later as Miles. Dorothy’s daughter changes. Blanche’s daughter goes from being married with a 14 year old to a younger, single plus size model.

And it doesn’t matter. It’s like the writer’s had fibro fog or amnesia, but it worked.

Thank you for being a friend!

ICYMI: Something New for the New Year

The end of 2016 was pretty hard. Who am I kidding, it seemed like 2016 was hard for a lot of people! I know for my family and me, it was probably the hardest hard we have ever had to face, and there have been a couple.

But 2016 is over and we are moving full steam ahead into 2017. A few things that I have decided:

  • I closed my reading group, Arrington’s Angels, due to lack of response/interest. I may reopen it in the future but that is still to be seen.
  • I thought I had Dangerous Turns ready for publication but the more I thought about it, the more I didn’t like it. I felt like I would be letting my readers down by releasing something that didn’t feel finished. So I am pushing it to a Spring 2017 release.
  • Oh and I am the new social media coordinator for Lust Bites Magazine!

Don’t you love how I just casually dropped that last one in there? I am totally stoked about joining this team of amazing people/authors. I hope that I can do them and their readers proud! I will also be a contributing columnist so look for my name to pop up occasionally. I already had my first pitch approved!

If you are an author/blogger that would be willing to talk with me, please email me at lisa@lisaawritesreads.com or by using the contact form.

2017 – Page One

Or day one. However you wish to look at it.

I tried to find a Happy New Year picture to share, but none of the ones I saw depicted what I see the new year as. The same old, same old. I’m still me and I still have an illness that’s not going to get better. In fact, I may never have full hearing out of my right ear again, time will tell.

And as I write this, I’m not sad and bitter, I’m actually smiling. I know that my life will always be a challenge and making some silly promise that I am in surely going to break by the weekend isn’t going to change that.

I do wish all of my friends and family and readers the best 2017 that you can possibly have! And who knows, maybe some of that will rub off on me too.

Another (another?) Side Project

I am happy to announce that I am trying to push myself and my writing for 2017. Along with the Tillie Miller mystery, the personal story I am writing about my illness, the final books in not only the ROSE trilogy AND the Quake trilogy, I am adding my name to the hat for an anthology! Not all will be published next year, but I am hoping to write all of them!

Am I overdoing it? Yep.

Have I taken on too much? Probably.

Will I need to be hospitalized for losing my shit? Most definitely, lol

But hopefully you all will send words of encouragement and laugh along with me during this madness.
