Well I hope your weekend has started better than mine! I feel like I should be banging my head against the nearest hard surface, and I've no doubt you guys have been in the same frame of mind at one point or another.
My weekend was supposed to be babysitting my 2 year old granddaughter all day Friday, and for a few hours Saturday for my son to work. Not too bad, I hear you say. Well I agree with you. But, what I wasn't expecting was for him to crash his car on Friday, which meant taking him to, and bringing him home from, work on Saturday. Not only that, but it's the worry of him keeping his job. There is no other way for him to get there.
And, just to put the icing on the cake, he's your typical 24 year old. What does that mean? I hear you ask. Well, it means his attitude is pretty much "Oh well!". So we (the parents) are left worrying, and he still laughs and jokes around. I wonder who gets the better part of that deal. The next generation seem to be very laid back, and I honestly can't decide if I think that's a good thing or a bad one.
Well, I'm going to leave that one there for now, who knows? I might even have an answer to it one day.
I think that might just scare me a little :).
I guess that means the weekend can only get better, at least that's what I'm banking on. There will be work in the garden, so let's hope the sun puts in an appearance, and dinner to cook, and I'm pretty sure the list will grow by the time I strike the first item off it :).
Have a great weekend, and I'll check in soon.
Bye for now,
Hi guys :),
I hope you're all ready for the summer, I know I am. It's been a long winter, and it's about time summer showed his face for a while if you ask me.
Now I'm pretty sure I've mentioned a shortage of time before, many moons ago, and I find I still struggle with that. Between my normal daily routines, and FB, Twitter, and my blog, it's hard sometimes to find the time to do what I enjoy the most, writing. I have an awful tendency to be up until 3 am, and that's just trying to keep up with the normal things.
Lately, though, there have been more things I've been doing. I've got a joint effort in the works, which I can't say anything about just yet. There's book 3, which I've just got a few paragraphs of so far. But then there's a story that I started for said project I can't mention, which is not now for that project, which has taken on a life of it's own and has grown into something in its own right. I'm guessing that will turn into another book, though it will be in no way linked to the Angel's Blood series.
I do have to wonder where I will get the time, as 3 am seems late enough for me, or early enough if you want to look at it that way. So I tried to sit and work out some sort of schedule, and guess what! You got it. It was a no go. I think the only thing I'll be able to do is take one day at a time, or I'll be like the preverbial dog chasing its tail. Getting close, but never quite getting there. Or if I do it's a false catch, so to speak, and the caught tail just slips right on loose. So a day at a time it is for me, let's hope that it'll all work out in the end :).
Well take care, and hang tight. Summer is just around the corner, and everything looks better in the sun, right?
I just had to drop you a line to let you know there's another 5* review for Hybrid Justice on Amazon. I have to say I was over the moon when I read it, and I thank Ian for taking the time out of his busy day to write it, and place it up for all to see. And now I'd like to show it to you all :), so here it is...

I was privileged and fortunate enough to have been given a draft copy of this book shortly after Sallyann completed it. So taken by the first book Angel's Blood was I, that I pressed and pressed for the second instalment and well, what can I say? Having ploughed into the draft I found it equally enthralling. We see the relationship evolve between our lead characters Tavi and Cade, not to mention a healthy measure of romance between other members of the Camden Falls Pack.
What makes this series different from any other werewolf genre book? It's the addition not only of the "angel" element of things, the effect it has upon Tavi's already formidable abilities, but we also have a strong sense of family ties, we have vampires not only as friends but also arch enemies. The storyline will take you through plots, twists and turns and Sallyann's style of writing is one that you simply cannot help but warm to from very early on. There are scenes described that actually take you to the places in your mind. There are times when you could cut the tension with a suitably sharpened silver bladed knife and times when a werewolf could have been sitting next to me while I was reading and I'd have been none the wiser.
I know already that whatever Sallyann does next is going to be worth reading, indeed I'm already waiting for the next book in this series to be written, along with a long list of other people who have discovered her ability for story-telling. The plots, characters and ease with which the story comes to life are all elements that a reader wants from a good book. In this one, just like the first, you'll not be disappointed I can assure you.
Having read a similar genre book by a much more well-established author some time ago, I can honestly say that these two knock spots off that particular one, to the point where on several occasions throughout Hybrid's Justice, I actually kept reading instead of doing what I should have been doing. For me to do that, it has to be a book with bite ... this has plenty of that! Well done Sallyann, no pressure but ummmm, when's book three coming? :)
It sure is a buzz to know that someone is waiting to find out what happens next besides me. I'm never quite sure what the characters will do next, or where they'll go. All I do know is they want to kick some serious butt, so I'm going to have to get started, before the complaining in my head turns to yelling :).
Well thats all today folks, take care and I'll see you soon.
