Lost with my Muses

I've been neglecting my online homes lately. I've been mad busy with a lot of things. One is a WIP that my muses have just taken off with! I think I'll finish it shortly. The other is revision of a submission. I have one final scene to revise and edit before I can submit. I also want to clear out some finer details since it gets a little complicated.

I just read the Adrien English mysteries by Josh Lanyon. I do love an ending that isn't fairy tail but still satisfying. I'm moving on with Lanyon books to read Mexican Heat. It comes up a lot in fan discussions and reviews for Undercover Sins. I'm curious to see how closely the two are related. I've read a lot of free fiction on forums, but I've only recently started in on the published romance. I'm a late bloomer. I like Josh Lanyon for the lack of lengthy sex scenes. I feel comfortable reading his novels at work. No glancing around, worrying who might have super vision and can read a Nook from 15 yards away. (Note: no one I work with can.)

I've finally convinced my day-job boss that the world is moving into the digital age. After a year of making fun of my Nook, he wanted my opinion on which e-reader he should buy. (he listed iPad in the lot...I'm not a fan.) I still don't think he'll make the jump, but he's thinking about it. I wasn't sure I'd like the e-reader, but I truly do. I can sleep with it and not bend pages.

Six Sentence Sunday

It's very late and I'm very tired. I'm sure I'll check this entry tomorrow and wonder what made me type what I did.
I'll try to make Six Sentence Sunday a habit! Time washed away from me last week as I edited and read too much online comics. (why are those things so addicting?) The weather is also very nice now and I want to enjoy it before summer takes a hold of my house and makes it an oven. I find June and July just dreadful.

Anyway. Here's this week's Six Sentence Sunday from World on Fire.

Lucian picked up Wilcox the lobster, smiled at it, and pinched one claw to hold it out. The other twisted in a desperate attempt at escape.
“My point is that you have no real connection to—” Cole dropped his sentence when Lucian moved away with the lobster. His steps toward Victoria were sweeping circles to the left, and...Cole shook his head, astonished. Lucian was dancing a waltz with the lobster while moving into the breakfast nook.
