4 Lips!!--When it rains...

....it pours. And this is the best rainy day I've had in ages LOL


4 Lips from Two Lips Reviews!

I truly enjoyed The Apple of His Eye by Stacy Dawn. Shane tries his best to show Eden how great marriage can be when entering into it for the right reasons. The book really flows well. Stacy Dawn shows true talent for constructing a fast paced passionate novel. Her characters feel like real people and I liked them all. Stacy Dawn is an author to watch!

Review


Not much left to my fingernails, I've been chewing them so much waiting for a review--any review of my novella, The Apple of His Eye. Well, one came into the inbox today from Road to Romance...and it's good!!
Stacy Dawn has dealt with a dicey subject of love blossoming between a guy and his best friend’s girl in perhaps the best way possible. This makes for a sweet romance in what is potentially a bitter situation.
The Gallagher clan and Eden’s best friend’s (marriage witness) Leah all end up having to deal with the situation.
“The Apple of His Eye” is a fun read and its even more fun to pick out all the “apple” references throughout this short and sweet story. So people go ahead get your copy and enjoy!

Out and About

My husband has an unusual four days off so we've been busy out of the house with family things. We visited a free zoo about a half hour north of us and discovered they are adding in a lot of new exibits and a little splash park--yay!! It'll be great in the summer to take the boys too. They have some basic animals now. Camels for one which were HUGE! I never realized just how big a camel really is until you are standing next to one with all it's winter fuzz.



We did my oldest's peewee bowling this morning and he got his first strike!! Yipee!! He was so proud (and us too of course LOL)

Tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeous so we'll head into the Toronto Zoo. This one has pretty much everything and even though it's a bit of a distance to drive too, we're glad we have the yearly membership--also helps that the father-in-law is only twenty minutes away from it so it's sort of a two for one LOL. The pictures below, though not mine, are from our zoo.

So, as you can see, it's been family time this weekend and fun time too!

Love Floats

My newest release is available now in the form of a novella in..


Love Floats

Garden landscaper, Kelsey Ryan, is surprised to find her current client doesn’t have any land. Yet the challenge isn’t in creating a deck garden for his houseboat, but in keeping the hunky graphic artist from growing on her, especially when she thinks the garden is for his wedding day. Will a few marigolds and misunderstandings leave her matchless...or make her his first mate?

Carry Over...

So, carrying over my post from Word Flirts yesterday, Happy Spring Everyone!!

And in a carry over from my blog post at Sweeter Romantic Notions Blog today and appropriate for a Wednesday...this time of year is like getting over the hump of winter where you can finally see the light of the sun. The dreariness is gone, the days are getting longer, and the feel-good fuzzy spring mood starts to set in.

Check out the Diva Bookshelf where I've been busy adding more books for you to browse through!

Episode #41

Welcome to another episode of ESCAPE the Mondayn here on the Sensibly Insane Channel.

I'm your host, Stacy Dawn, and I think we're taking this episode back to the sea. There is just something about a man in water so maybe we should see who washed up on shore this week.


Mmmm, hello dark brooding and intense merman...perhaps we could share a dip in the pool after the show?


Why don't we let him dry off for just a moment and spin our prize wheel? Let's see what one lucky contestant will win this week.

Tickety-tickety-tickety-tickety....tickety-tickety-tickety....tickety-tickety...tickety...tick.

It landed on a funky dragonfly bookmark, soooo....

What's up?

I'm crawling out of life for a few minutes to see what's going on around me. Seriously, I've been a horrible blogging friend, have missed checking in on half the boards for the past two weeks, and am getting tired of staring blankly at the revision cave walls. I think yesterday's day off helped to loosen a bit of the stress.

So I just wanted to say...

Sorry I'm so late posting this today. We took advantage of the beautiful weather and skipped off to the Toronto Zoo today....uh, so did EVERYBODY else LOL.

Okay, so we threw the names into the hat and came up with ESCAPE the Mondayn's very first double week winner! Congratulations Robyn!!

Who's Afraid of a Happy Ending?

Wow, what a great documentary. When it comes to the States, you all have to watch it. Major named authors gave their interpretation of romance and their styles, Debbie Macomber sat their knitting and Nora Roberts had more attitude than I would have thought LOL. Jennifer Cruisie did NOT look like I pictured her in my head (never seen her before) but she was cool. Then the three writers they interviewed were really interesting.
