Meet Author Liza O’Connor (#MaGM 10)

So, Liza O’Connor had this idea. It was going to be great. She was going to interview my book, Lucky in Love, on her blog (and she did!–interview my book, that is, not me) and I was going to post this fantastic interview of Liza on the same day. Then, we were going to madly cross-promote, doubling our chances for hijinks and giggles.

Yeah, that didn’t work out. Thanks, gallbladder. Yet another disappointment to lay at your feet. Continue reading


Five Things Friday: Slacker Edition

I’m back from my overly long absence with a quick shot of five random things you should know on this fine Friday.

1. Beware the cholycystectomy.

Gallbladders sometimes don’t go without a fight. I ended up with muscle spasms, a partially-collapsed lung and some other stupidly debilitating side effects. After three weeks, though, I’m mostly all good. Embarrassed to say that I got beaten up by something the size of a walnut, but mostly all good.

2. MaGM will be back next week, and will feature the fantastic Liza O’Connor

I can’t wait. She’s super funny!

3. FYI, coconuts are deadlier than sharks. 

According to the article I read, “There were 91 incidents of shark encounters last summer, Burgess said, including 76 unprovoked attacks on people by sharks.” What I want to know is, what the hell were those 15 other people thinking?

4. If you write, you should be following Kristen Lamb’s blog.

She made me give a character a conflict transplant this week. The character is still prickly, but now she’s got legitimate (and not too overblown) reasons.

5. …aww, forget it. 

I’m too tired to find another fact. Have a great weekend!
