M.I.A --- and a Cover Reveal!

Wow!
I know I've been M.I.A. and I'm sorry. In fact, I'm starting to wonder if I know how to use blogger any more. Everything looks foreign! 
Okay - it's not that bad, but still!

A quick update on me...
I've got a job! Yes! I work as a computer lab manager at an elementary school. Basically, I get to teach the kids about computers and keyboarding! Awesome, right? I love it, but adjusting to the schedule and trying to get everything figured is EXHAUSTING!!! Even breathing requires too much energy! Especially when I still have  household to run and three kids to take care of at home. And don't forget soccer season! WHOOT!

Just know that I love you and miss you and I'll be back! Thanks for being patient with me!

Now here's a shout out to the fabulous ~ 
The cover for her book, STRENGTH is freaking awesome! So much so, that I don't mind staring at it a little each night before I go to bed. *swoon*

STRENGTH is set to be released on March 7, 2013, by Sapphire Star Publishing

I can't wait!

Here's a quick synopsis:
When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, she’s stunned. Wallace Blake is everything she’s ever wanted in a man—except he can’t touch her. His uncontrollable strength, a so-called gift from his bloodline, makes every interaction dangerous. And with a secret, supernatural war brewing among his kind, there’s no time to work it out. To keep Wallace in her life, Rena will have to risk a whole lot more than her heart.

Congrats Carrie! I can't wait until I have this baby in my hands!!! The book - not the guy - although I wouldn't mind BOTH!

Yum! I've been seeing this sexy cover all morning. What an awesome Monday it's turning out to be :)

Congrats to Carrie!

I know! It's already on my reading list. Leigh, I hear you on that balancing crazy. I just got hired to write a bunch of promo music pieces, had a publisher request one of my manuscripts, am home schooling 3 kids, and got asked to be the president of a children's organization. Forget the house. How about the woman's sanity?

Best of luck with all your busy, and congrats on the job!

Hmm it almost sounds like she's fallen in love with Hercules. It reminds me of the line, "He's my little Hercules. Hercules! Hercules! Hercules!"

Job + kids + blogging + writing is exhausting. And don't beat yourself up for it taking a little while to get a feel for the schedule because you can do it and caffeine may become your friend :)

You can do it!!!
