All I can do is yawn and sigh today. I'm exhausted. I wasn't intending to start Blood on the Bayou in the middle of the night... but well I was checking my email really fast before sleep and apparently when I pre-ordered it there was a giftcard on my account so there was an error in processing the purchase. Which meant it was beckoning to me hardcore... I figured I'd just read the dedication and acknowledgements, maybe the first chapter. Mind you it was almost 2AM at this point.
So I'm reading through the quotes for the series and smiling 'cause I love seeing real bloggers/reviewers like Scooper Speaks getting their thoughts quoted and I get to the acknowledgements and right behind Stacey's family, editor, and author friends is MY NAME! Me. OMG it's meeeeee! There was much eye-rubbing and self-pinching to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I had no idea at all that I was listed in the acknowlegements beforehand. I know, I know... it's not THAT big of a deal... but it made me feel special and kind of famous. lol
So then I read until 3AM and got up at 8AM and chugged like 5 cups of coffee so I can get my brain even close to focusing on what I'm supposed to be doing today. I'm at 17% according to the Kindle and so far it's dayuuum good. I missed Annabelle! I'm finally starting to cast the characters in my head too... 'cause I saw a flick a while back and the actress was, in my worthless opinion, a terrific choice for Annabelle if ever there were a movie made from the series. Alas, I can't see that ever happening but a girl can dream can't she?
