New flavor of the month

“Shut up,” Jillian chuckled.  “You know what I mean.  These women that are willing to risk losing what they have.  If she thinks John is fucking around call him on it, or divorce him and take half, not find some new flavor of the month.”--Lisa Loomis (Gem Rats--a novel)

He fell in beside me, and we jogged back to camp.  The feelings swirled in me like a kaleidoscope, anger, hurt, love, and hope.  I realized if he didn’t feel the same, there was nothing I could do.   It was there or not.--Lisa Loomis (Casanova Cowboy--a novel)

Finally we got the sizing right, very exciting, but a few more tweaks needed for it to be right.  Coming soon.................

He kissed me again before I could get anything else out.  I kissed him back.  I could taste the beer and the marijuana.  I didn’t want to kiss him and I wanted to kiss him.  Stop.  I wanted him to stop, and not to stop.  Why, why, why, kept flashing in my head.--Lisa Loomis (Boy in a Band--a novel)

"He wants to keep you hanging, coming back for more.  Initially maybe he didn’t want to scare you off with reality.  Stella don’t you see what he is?  You’re not his first rodeo girl he has done this same thing to other women, the girlfriend for one."--Lisa Loomis (Gem Rats--a novel)

A Horse Named Joe--coming up

I finished my fourth novel yesterday.  Now as I've come to learn, is the hard part.  I will spend the next weeks reading it again and then re reading, editing, editing, editing.  I have a ways to go before trying to get it out there, but I'm excited about the book.

This is a picture of the real Joe--in some future form, to be the cover.  The book is not about a horse though per say, he's in it, but the story isn't his.  It's Roni's story, an Investment Banker from Wall Street.  More to come.............................

Finn and Geo snag

I have run into a snag with getting Finn and Geo out.  A whole new learning curve with a picture book.  With the publisher there just seems to be email support, not a live person, so it takes longer when you have to go back and forth.  I hope Brandie and I can get things resolved this week.

First Day

Today is the first day of college for both my kids.  It is so sad that summer is already over.  Coming up to the cabin today I was reminded that fall is just around the corner--some of the lower trees are already starting to change color.  Fall will zip by and before I know it snow will be flying again.

Home Alone

It feels sort of strange to have both the kids gone.  They were never home much anyway but I guess it feels different now that they have their own places to go to every night.  I'm sure I will find more reasons to go to Salt Lake than I used to, maybe stop by and say hello, bring some groceries, whatever.  School starts for them on Monday and they will get into a routine and be busy.  At the same time I miss them I am excited for them and this time in their life.

“Liar, the cowboy boots gave you away.  To think if I hadn’t stayed here last night, I might not have put it together.  Bad luck for you, me figuring it out.  Sadie?” I said pondering.  “She’s what, twenty something years older than you?--Lisa Loomis (Casanova Cowboy--a novel)

My kids our last summer trip to Lake Tahoe this month.  Today I check Hunter into her dorm, Parker is already in a house with roommates.  Both off to college--Empty Nesters.  Will seem a little strange.

A.M.!  That has recently become my waking time.  I hate it.  I look at the clock and toss and turn, wish I wasn't awake, and then I start to write in my head.  I've already come up with two new book ideas--I mean that part is good, but I need to be writing faster or something.  This morning gave in at 4:15--off to write.

Doing crazy

           “Morgan, don’t do anything crazy,” he whispered.
            I looked at him and the anger rose up in my chest.  It rose higher and higher and then welled over and made me feel mean.  I bit my tongue a little.  A small frustrated laugh escaped my lips.
            “Ha.  Crazy?” I said locking eyes with him.
            He stared back at me, saying nothing.
            “What’s crazy is the way you act.  Now that’s crazy,” I said through a clinched jaw.

Coming home yesterday I was able to write on A Horse Named Joe.  I got to write for several hours straight which I just love.  What's even better is when the story takes a twist I didn't see coming but which makes the second to last chapter tie up some ends I was concerned about.  I am so excited to finish the book today or tomorrow, and then revision starts------

Emotional Yoyo

            He’d chosen my favorite song.
            “Wild, wild, horses, couldn’t drag me away from you,” he sang.
            My heart didn’t feel desperate for him tonight like it could.  I was such an emotional yoyo when it came to him.  When he finished he looked up at me.  I felt calm.--Lisa Loomis (Boy in a Band--a novel)

Jillian’s voice was low, a little raspy even, but had a sexiness to it that was easily heard by both men and women.--Lisa Loomis (Gem Rats--a novel)

Jillian woke up with a hangover and her sides hurt from laughing.  She remembered the drive home at one thirty in the morning being a tad too sketchy for comfort.-- Lisa Loomis (Gem Rats- a novel)

New laptop

I said I wouldn't buy one until a book went big.  Well when my HP turned ten and the screen is going, five years of writing, and no best seller.....YET, I had to break down.  Kids talked me into an Apple.  It's thin and light and keyboard lights up.  No going crazy in the car in the dark with a pen light.  Today I get to write--I'm so excited.
