New Release and Idol Musing

Filed under: Uncategorized — carlacassidy @ 2:06 am

It’s here!  The last of the Lawmen of Black Rock series!  Special Agent’s Surrender is on sale now and I love this hero!   I love this cover!      Is this guy hot, or what?!

And now a confession – I’m hooked on American Idol this season.  I haven’t watched much of it the last couple of seasons, but this time there seems to be so much amazing talent!   It’s an indulgence I’m giving to myself, one that I normally don’t because I discovered long ago that I can’t work to music. 

I do my best work while watching television.  The better the show, the better my writing goes, but music screws me up.  I think maybe part of it is because as a senstive writer type (okay, quit laughing) music speaks to something deep inside me and I find it pulls emotion that is often inappropriate for what I’m writing, so it’s a no-no.  Then there’s the problem that I am an entertainer at heart and I want to sing with every song that I know the words to.  I also can’t fall asleep at night listening to music for the same reason.  I either want to get up and belt out the tune or dance in the middle of the bed. 

Back to the writing life, I’m working up a synopsis for a new series and hope to get it sent off by the first of next week.    It’s cowboys and danger and love…what could be better?

Thanks for stopping by and keep reading!
