Closing Time

I'm noticing a lot of things are being recycled. Commercials no longer have original jingles that they hired folks for during the heyday of commercials (the 50's?). Now they mainly play oldies (but goodies) either with their original lyrics or changed to fit the product they're selling. New movies are basically old ones remade. Same with new commercial music coming out. It kind of makes you want to turn back the time just to experience the originals again rather than the carbon copies.

Just a mini rant instigated by the title of this blog. The song Closing Time by SuperSonic was originally released somewhere in the 90s (or 00's?) and HBO has been playing it during its promos. It got me thinking about all the other things currently re-released including (horror of horrors!) The Day The Earth Stood Still. I'm not going to even begin to rant on that nor the fact that Sunset Blvd is being remade else we be here forever. ;-)

In other news (outside of my old timer rant lol) I've finally finished my current WIP and after a few edits and responses from my awesome crit group I came in over my goal word count! Woo hoo! I sent it off to the pub I was aiming for and now it's a waiting game. Which I am totally fine with at this point. I think I pushed myself a bit too much that last bout so I figure a little time off would do me good. I took some time yesterday to just rest yet still my brain is thinking of the next project. I still have edits to do for London before my editor comes after me and I'm throwing a few ideas around for what to dive into after my short anthology project (which I will let you guys know about laters ;-)).

Strange thing, though. During my morning blog visits, I noticed that all of the blogs (save for like one) hasn't been updated. Hmmm. Wonder if I wasn't the only one vacationing! Tomorrow's Friday so maybe everyone took the weekend off early. I'm thinking of taking the rest of the week off myself just to reinvigorate. I think my TBR pile will thank me for giving it some attention again. ;-)

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

~Excerpt~ My breath caught as soon as he said the name and my eyes searched his features, looking for the little boy I had known…

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
