Mini laptops/netbooks

Here is my dilemma, DH and I share a laptop....when he gets home, I stop my writing and relinquish control over our "third child". My choices are to write on paper, which is fine for the most part, or wait until he is done....leaving me up till sometimes 2 in the morning writing.
I am considering a mini because it's light weight and easily portable....I can put it on the kitchen counter and use it while I'm waiting for the sauce to boil or stick it in my purse and use it at...well, anywhere I want really. The one I have my eye on at the moment is the Acer Aspire One in Sapphire blue w/ Linux....but I have questions, maybe you can help....I would certainly appreciate any advice.

A. Are mini's a good thing for writers?

B. Will Linux interfere with how I send my manuscripts to my publishers?

C. Do any of you have one or would recommend a different mini?

Inquiring minds want to know....HALP! ;)

Night Owl Romance...

Review.... 4.75 out of 5 hearts!! Read entire review here.

From Danni
I enjoy reading anthologies because it gives me a chance to try new to me authors. And Mating Season is a well-rounded anthology because it offers a little bit of everything for everyone – shape shifters, contemporary, interracial and paranormal stories. The stories take readers on a journey with forbidden lovers, life lessons, shapeshifters and hot, steamy, erotic sex. With most anthologies there are usually one or two stories that stick out above the rest. I am happy to say that this was not the case for this book. All of the stories were excellent. I would definitely be reading this anthology again and will be on the look out for more stories from each of these authors.

Home stretch

I love when I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with a book and this one seems to be sewing itself up pretty nicely. I have filled in some of the gaps that I was worried about over the weekend.

After I finish up Cubo, I really need to have a girls day and shift out of Mom mode for a night ;) Then it will be onto the sequel for A Hare's Breadth....still debating weather I'm going to finish up the story or leave it open for a third (even though I haven't written one word for it yet). Still playing around with titles for it as well.

I'm really excited about getting Cubo out there though. My poor husband made the mistake of stopping for two seconds just as I finished a good chapter and I talked his ear off about it for a good half hour. That will teach him to ask me how it's going! :)

So back to it, fingers crossed for a Wed finish!!!

Cerebral Reviews the new Mrs. Giggles???

I'm all for honest reviews, but WOW seems like this site was just started so they can feel above any author that DARE send their book in. This strikes me as an excuse to be a grammar natzi and tear down authors and publishers that they don't care for.

Needless to say, I will not be sending any of my books to them and would caution other authors to think about it before they send in as well.

I did some investigating because the blatant venom and favoritism was bothering me. I have figured out who one of the "reviewers" is, (will not name)....but shame on them for skimming through 2 books (they admitted it) and then condemning a publisher! That's someone's livelihood you're messing with because one of the authors pen names is too similar. You're messing with MY livelihood because I have a book coming out with them in Aug. I'm telling you right now, you don't try to take food out of my kids mouths and not have me get upset.
Hey, no problem on having to read books from Sugar and Spice....or Amira Press, Mojo Castle, Kensington, Phaze, Ellora's Cave or some of the other publisher's that my writer friends have books with.
End of rant.

Weird week

Last week was a doozy was it not? Not only did we loose quite a few celebrities, I read about quite a few Face Book friends loosing loved ones and friends. Such a sad time in a lot of lives and that was on top of what's going on in Iran. I am going to keep my politics to a minimum however.
It seems the muses are working over time....most of my writer friends and myself have been finishing stories and coming up with new ideas left and right. I am finishing up Cubo, very excited that this will be my first print book. Also have added to my list of projects! The sequel to A Hare's Breadth will be a stand alone book and not part of Amira's Fall anthology; I am creating a young adult spin-off from that for Sugar&Spice AND I have another young adult story in the works. This is on top of the other books I have on the back burner. I am so thankful and grateful that most of those books have homes to go to and that ideas keep coming. I am also thankful for all of the wonderfully talented friends I have....I got a chance this past Sat to bounce ideas with Dahlia Rose and Morgan Hawke; two ladies that I love dearly. We had so much fun in fact that we are going to be setting up a small writers get together for a chit chat/ bouncing session. Should be fun!
Well, I am off to write so that I can get this finished and into your hands! I'll post a little teaser soon.
