    BeckyB What R U Doing?

    I’m glad you asked. On Wednesday I finished the initial edits to my next manuscript and put it out to peer review (currently just one reviewer – so no one get your panties in a bunch because I haven’t called…) and as she (Annie at the Small Book Blog) devours it I’ve been working with flamingos. Training them, buying them, and overall rolling around in pink. I’ll have stained fingers when I’m done with all this. But here’s a sneak peek at the current rough draft tour badge . . . which will also be on the bag for the giveaway. WOOT!!

    Burns, Rabbie Burns *wink*

    Photo credit: Wikipedia For those who noticed the Q&A wasn’t up yesterday, I apologize. I caught the plague that’s currently going around at my office and I was down for the count. So, we’re one day late in celebrating Scotland’s most loved poet Robbie (or as they say in Scottytown Rabbie) Burns’ birthday. And because it’s the day after I’ll leave you with a lovely poem instead of the planned Q&A, because this my friends, is so much better. Enjoy the Robbie love. I Love My Jean. Of a’ the airts the wind can blaw, I dearly like the west, For there the bony Lassie lives, The Lassie I lo’e…

    I’m on Fire

    Well this is one of those times where I think to myself: Becky back the fuck away from your keyboard. What you say today a) no one will understand and b) you’ll be so sorry you said anything. . . 10 years from now. You ever have one of those days? Where you just want to light everything you see on fire because the piss n’ vinegar that you have within you is up to your eyeballs and you’re afraid it’ll seep out your tear ducts if you don’t do something soon? I’m sure now that Facebook has the new “timeline” feature I’ll be able to plot events and see…

    Slash n’ Burn

    It is interesting. I’ve gotten to the last 25 pages of editing Of Gears and Blood manuscript and stopped. I stopped so long that when I picked it back up this week I decided that the ending had to go. So I ripped it out. Yes, like a woman who hates the new drapery pattern – I tore them down and have burned them. How does it end now? I’ve no clue but it’s coming in pieces and it’s really creepy. As in I have to work on it in small segments because diving into the mind of a murderer is like turning your world upside down and calling it…

    Gobble-Gobble!

    It’s that time again!! And raise your hand if you thought you had at LEAST a week or two more until the big Turkey Day??  *raises hand* As we all are hustling about running errands or “doing it” (read blog post here) I thought I would throw out a recipe that my gran made every year. It was that pink frozen thing that would show up after the turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes had been consumed. It’s one of those desserts that’s so strange that I have to post it here for folks to make. It’s called Grammies Arctic Freeze. Grammie Banks’ Pink Arctic Freeze 1 can whole cranberries2 3…

    Do It

    Love and the making of it. This topic often comes up at cocktail hour with the ladies, each of us comparing love lives – and it’s something of a revelation for me to hear the confessions of those who’ve gone months and years, without an intimate moment with their husband. And not for medical reasons. When was the last time you made love to your husband? The man you’ve committed your life to? Yesterday? Couple months? Was it a year ago or more? Today we’re breaking the love ban. Today, entering the most stressful time of year we are going to find time, make time, invest in the time to…

    Modicum of Normalcy

    Warning: this is a random post.I’ve been laid up with my annual cold from Wednesday thru today. Little on the mildly insane side today as I’ve watched my entire Netflix queue, read all my fun fluffy (read: easy on a snot filled head) books and now have just the internet to entertain me… which as we all know is the rabbit hole of rabbit holes. Well, I’m off to google stalk, chat, take cold medication and be a downright nuisance to anyone within arms and vocal reach. And since the hubby left me to my devices that means the only ones left to do my bidding are my pug minions. …
