Come by my blog and read all about M.D. Water's debut novel, Archetype—the next big novel of 2014!
"“Archetype” is the literary equivalent of a big-screen blockbuster with its beautiful but deadly heroine, tragic love triangle and grim futuristic setting. The closest thing in print may be Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” but Emma is Offred with mixed martial arts training. Given a chance to flee the male-dominated, baby-obsessed culture in which she has been ensnared, Emma picks up a gun and goes down fighting."
I did 1 hour and 40 minutes of Zumba today. I've been exercising 6 out of 7 days and eating healthy. The scale isn't really showing much difference, nor is the mirror, but my calves and thighs are hard as brick. I guess maybe I'm putting on more muscle than losing fat?
Anyway, here is a playlist of my favorite Zumba routines.
This is one of my most anticipated moments of 2014—celebrating the release day for Archetype by M.D. Waters (who just happens to be my critique partner). Totally bragging. Get over it. Barnes & Noble Amazon iTunes Goodreads " Emma wakes in a hospital, with...
A few inches of snow fell two nights ago. My husband pulled the curtains back and glanced down at our driveway. "Who came up our driveway this early?"
I peered out and sure enough, there were tracks leading from the street into our driveway and back out. Upon further inspection, these tracks did not make their way to our porch, but instead made a circle around both of our cars.
"Someone cleaned our cars off," my husband said, his forehead wrinkled.
"Who would do that? Who would get up at the ass crack of dawn to clear off someone else's car?"
The day went by, the mystery unsolved. My sister, a local hair dresser came over for dinner. "Wasn't that nice of Dave to clear off all the neighbor's vehicles this morning?"
My jaw dropped. Our neighbor, Dave, who moved here permanently after being laid off a few years ago from his job on Wall Street, not only cleared off our two cars, but the cars of everyone on our street? Who does something like that?
Well, Dave does things like that all the time. I shouldn't have been surprised. With no children of his own, he's so good to my kids that they've taken to calling him Uncle Dave all on their own. He brings child-friendly baked goods just for them whenever there is a neighborhood cook-out. And it's not just the kids. His mother owns an antique store and he brings me furniture that he thinks I'll like and won't take a dime for it. He looks out for everyone in our neighborhood as though we were his own flesh and blood.
Dave is not only a great neighbor, but a great man. I'm touched by his Random Act of Kindness.
