Two items of business this week .....
First, I finished the NaNo *YAY* and can now have some of my life back LOL It was an amazing experience and hopefully I can keep the momentum going and finish the novel completely. It felt so good that last time I did a word count and saw that I reached 50,000 words and I'm pretty sure I'm going to sign up again next year. Thanks for all your support guys :)
Second, *insert some mumbled words with the hope that no one understands it* LOL Ok I'll say it louder...
I fell of the no buying books wagon
and did it SPECTACULARLY!!
Here's some loopholes I thought of using -
1. I was in a Vicodin induced fog for a week and so any manic book buying is automatically forgiven
2. I don't know how they appeared on my Kindle. Must have been my Book Godmother. Aaah so nice to be loved.
3. I dreamed I was buying books and when I woke my Kindle was fuller (UGH that was really bad English)
4. "I was buying books? Wow how strange I thought I was *insert something lame and bizarre because I'm too tired to think*
For whatever reason, I fell hard and I'm left wondering whether I'll continue. LOL so *insert trumpet announcement* here's the damage!!!

This was a HUGE shock. I came home to find a package from Karen Ukraine at Hachette Books on my doorstep with no note. I open it up and out falls Sin Undone by Larissa Ione. This is where it gets real Twilight Zone - a week or so before I was tweeting about not ever reading it and then suddenly I have it in my mailbox. Thank you so much Karen - you made my day!
Talk about making my day, another package came to me with a new sexy installment of my book crush Vance Mangum. Blood Of The Witch was just released and the author (and my BFF) sent me a signed copy!! This one's especially special because I'm mentioned in the acknowledgments.
