His wife records him while he talks in his sleep, then posts the messages on their blog. He lives a “colorful existence in his dreams” usually cursing and saying random oddities. My sweetie follows the blog and sends me her favorite ones. It makes for a humorous break when I’m working.
So today I thought I’d share the link and a few recent messages from Sleep Talkin’ Man:
“Fuck me, fuck you. Simple choice, really.”
“Everybody wriggle. Everybody wriggle. It’s maggot mayhem.”
“My ass and my personality are the same thing. Huge and in your face.”
Once a week I post about something I’m loving (tv, movies, books, art, photos, romances, authors, or anything else). So here is this week’s For the Love of…
I was the guest blogger over at Fiction with Friction yesterday, talking about my first book and my first love. I’m feeling a bit sentimental on both counts, so I thought I’d share the link to that post for today’s “For the Love of” Friday blog.
The post is titled: I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.

I’d love to hear about your own first love story. Feel free to leave a comment here or on the Fiction with Friction blog.
After a short break I’m back to editing my next book Breathe, and so I thought I’d use a quote today that says something to me about the story, the characters, and their relationship.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.
- Flavia Weedn
This isn’t an exact fit, but it does capture a lot of what the story means to me.
Hope you all meet someone today who will leave a footprint on your heart.
I’m delighted to announce that my first release, More, is now available at Loose Id. It was a long journey to get here, and I’m thrilled to see More hit the digital shelves for readers.
Many thanks to everyone at Loose Id who helped with this book. Special thanks to my editor, Antonia Pearce (you rock!!), for all the wonderful input and to April Martinez for the gorgeous cover.
Also a big thanks to my local RWA chap mates at MVRWA for all the support and encouragement over the last several months. And last (but certainly not least) to my sweetie for all the love and support to get here.
Hello. Hope everyone is doing well and is as happy as I am today. Tuesday (March 23) is release day for More at Loose Id! I couldn’t be more excited to see my first book available for others to read.
To help celebrate I’m joining with other authors at Kayelle Allen’s two-day party (March 23 and 24) on her yahoo group, Romance Lives Forever. You’re all invited to come join the fun. I’ll be posting an excerpt and giving away a free copy of More.
Kayelle writes both m/m and m/f romances. She has two releases next week: At the Mercy of Her Pleasure on 3/23 and The Last Vhalgenn in audiobook from AudioLark on 3/24. She’s also a 2010 EPIC Award Winner in Erotic SciFi Romance. Congrats, Kayelle! And thank you for the invite to your party.
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.
Today I’m loving Julianne Moore. She’s filmed her cameo appearance on “As the World Turns” to help say goodbye to her old daytime soap (her role on ATWT ran from 1985-88). ATWT will be ending its 54-year run later this year. You can see a photo of her on the ATWT’s set at Zap2it. Her appearance will air on April 5.
Not many Academy Award nominated actresses would take the time to return to their former daytime career. Pretty classy of her.
Oh and she’s just plain gorgeous, so yeah I’m kind of a fan. ;)
Cheers to her and Happy Friday to all my blog followers,
Sometimes when I’m writing I listen to music. Occasionally a song will remind me of a character I’m writing about. Then whenever I hear that song, I’m right back into the story, into the character’s head. I find myself listening to it over and over.
I’ve found several songs that really hit home when it came to my book More.
“Numb” by Linkin Park fits Luke in so many ways. Since Moreis releasing next week, I thought it was the perfect time to post some of the song’s lyrics for my quote of the week. There’s also a video below if you want to listen.
“I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless
Lost under the surface
I don’t know what you’re expecting of me
Put under the pressure
Of walking in your shoes
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you
Can’t you see that you’re smothering me
Holding too tightly
Afraid to lose control
‘Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
