Music Monday – Just Give Me A Reason

This is one of those songs that I could listen to every day and never tire of it. Mainly because there are days and weeks where I do listen to it a lot. And I think I’ve done this one for Music Monday before but it bears repeating.

It’s one of those songs that tells a story… Could be fear, uncertainty, insecurity. All of the above, maybe. But the voices of Nate Ruess and P!nk together just give me chills… In a good way.

Have a great Monday and in light of the pain in the world, please hug someone you love.

I Love Brene Brown

She has some of the most incredible words and insights that get right into the heart of things, right into the heart of me. She has studied and published and talked about ownership of our pain, vulnerability, courage, love, and parenting…

I saw this on her Twitter account and given what is going on in Charlotte, North Carolina, these words from Brene Brown touched me…

Hug your loved ones. Hug your neighbors.

Show love. Not hate. Show understanding. Not anger. Show compassion. Not harm.

On My Ellora’s Cave Books…

I can’t give a lot of details, mainly because I don’t have any really, but I wanted to let all of you know that I received an email today from Ellora’s Cave regarding the rights of the 7 books I have with them. Effective October 7th, 2016, all the rights to those 7 titles will revert back to me. This means several things…

  1. I will no longer be an Ellora’s Cave author.
  2. I will be able to revise, re-cover, and republish these titles on my own with more reasonable prices.
  3. I will once again be able to ask: Do You Know Vinter? 😉

I have waited a long time for these books to come back to me and we’re so close, y’all. So. Close.

I will keep you updated with the progress and the re-release schedule.

The titles I am getting back are as follows:

Trouble In The Making
Slide Down On Me
The Swing
The Demon is an Angel
Ink Spots
Carnal Ecstasy
Simple Need

Thank you for keeping the faith!

Music Monday – King Of The World

I love this song.

If you seen any Toyota racing commercials, you’ve heard it. It’s a great, up beat song by a group that calls themselves Young Rising Sons, and it’s basically about storytelling.

I hope you enjoy it!
