Multi tasking

So the Cassie rewrite is finished and sent back. 8500 words longer. Funny how that works out each time. For those who were wondering... This is Pastor Jack. I had fun going through google finding a pic of him with auburn ish hair. Finally did though. See way more hair than... Stops before she gets into heap big trouble.

Joni is almost done. One more section to come back from my CP then I can submit that one for the Christmas submissions.

Then I can go back to John/Jo and the never ending series lol. I'm also reading a lot and thinking about sewing and working and all sorts of exciting things. Still haven't got dreamweaver working and having read the reviews of the latest version and windows 7 64 bit i'm not paying £400 for something that crashes constantly. Same goes for photoshop. Might try loading it on the laptop, and seeing it it runs on that - that being vista 32 bit we'll have to see.

Tricia Goyer speaks about her new novel, Beside Still waters

New Release - Light the Fire by Mary Manners

Light the Fire by Mary Manners


A choice, a tragedy, and life-altering consequences… When Rena Dunigan flees New York City and her dream of becoming a Broadway performer, she returns to her hometown harboring a life-altering secret and the shame of a shattered past. When her friend talks her into helping build a house through the local Shelter the Homeless program, Rena meets Cody and his mischievous Saint Bernard. Cody is dealing with a devastating loss of his own, yet his gentleness and patience melt Rena's resolve never to trust—or to love—again. But what will Cody think when he learns the consequences of Rena's past? Will he reject her, or can she trust that love will heal hurting hearts and forever bind them together?

My Review:

Rena and Cody are both trying to put the tragedies in their past behind them. It’s not as easy as it seems. Brought together by friends, a construction project, bunch of kids and a slobbery dog called Sammy, they find they both have to learn to trust and let go of the shadows of the past before they can move on. This is another gripping tale from Mary Manners. The characters bring the story right off the page, lingering after the last page is turned. With smiles, laughs and even tears as the story cut a little close to home for me, it shows that nothing is too big that it can’t be forgiven. As Ms Manners writes “The Lord never denies one who comes to Him. He doesn’t pick or choose which mistakes to forgive. None is too big or too small.” Not to be missed, this heart warming story is one to curl up with and read over again...

good day turned bad

Today started off as such a good day. Went to work with a huge smile on my face.

Then things went pear shaped. I learnt from a parent - during a normal conversation - that a fellow member of staff had passed away two days ago. It was just dropped in mind sentence.
- I'm doing this because H isn't here.
-Is H sick
- No she died
-She what???

All the kids at school knew. All the staff knew. Let me rephrase that. All the staff bar me and B - the girl I work with knew.

Right now i dunno whether to cry or just be angry that i wasn't told.
