Nothing to say

Captain’s Log, Stardate 04.17.2007

I have nothing to say today.

Well, aside from the fact I have edits due in 3 days and I’m still working on them.

And I just realized I have Daphne contest judging due in 3 days also, which has gotten shoved to the side in deference to Genesis. Why did I agree to judge? Oh, that’s right, because Donnell asked me to.

And I feel positively fat because I haven’t exercised in two weeks. But does that stop me from eating? Noooooooooo.

And Genesis stuff had me busy much of yesterday and I got so stressed I had to take a couple hours to do some knitting.

I’m working on the second sock of a pair using some really cool yarn from, Memories in Rocky Mountain Dusk. Feeling brave, I sort of made up my own pattern. I altered the cable design from the Learn to Cable scarf pattern on Lion Brand yarns website.

Okay, I’m back to edits. See? I really didn’t have much to say today.


  1. You're becoming a knitting whiz, girl! Not much to say, huh? Gee, I wonder why? ;-)

  2. The longer you knit, the more days I have time to exercise! Tee hee, keep knitting, girl.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

I joined Sweet Romance Reads!

I just joined Sweet Romance Reads, a group of authors who all write sweet romances in a variety of sub-genres. I’m friends with several of the authors from my days writing for Harlequin/Love Inspired, so it’s nice to be able to join their group. If you’re on Facebook, this is their Facebook page , and this is their Facebook group . I posted my introductory post yesterday on the Sweet Romance Reads blog (Blogger), where I listed three strange things about me.

Year of the Dog serial novel

About Year of the Dog : A month or two ago, I remembered an old manuscript I had completed but which hadn’t sold. It was a contemporary romance meant for Zondervan, titled Year of the Dog . The book had gone into the pipeline and I even got another title ( Bad Dog ) and a cover for it, but eventually my editor at the time decided she didn’t want to publish it, for various reasons. She instead requested a romantic suspense, and so I cannibalized some of the characters from Year of the Dog and thrust them into the next book I wrote, which was Protection for Hire . Honestly, I didn’t take a lot from Year of the Dog to put in Protection for Hire , aside from character names and a few relationship ties. I was originally thinking I’d post Year of the Dog as-is on my blog as a free read, but then it occurred to me that I could revamp it into a romantic suspense and change the setting to Hawaii. It would work out perfectly as (yet another) prequel to the Warubozu series and introduce
