Multifarious Day 8
Morrigan by Laura DeLuca – “Morrigan felt decidedly shaky… The reading hadn’t made everything as crystal clear as she had hoped, but one thing was certain. She would soon be leaving on a journey—a journey that would undoubtedly end in death.” Visit Laura DeLuca’s blog to read an excerpt from Morrigan, and see why I’m so excited about her October arrival.
I guess I can tell you a bit, huh? I’ve been biting my nails for the release of Morrigan because if the novel is half as wonderful as the excerpt suggests—and I’m pretty sure it will be—then this young adult tale will not only be fun, but it will offer yummy glimpses into a witchy world I don’t know much about. And you know how I LOVES me some learning ;-)
Oh, yes, I almost forgot. Morrigan flies in trailing a mind-blowing giveaway.
The Bewitching Home – Party! One of the things I love most about All Hallow’s Eve is the festive atmosphere of the witchy holiday. This year, I plan to party my heart out all month long. I’ve already signed up for The Bewitching Home blog party hosted by The Witch of The Howling Creek. I will also sing with the Samhain Sirens, and plan to join as many Dia de los Muertos, Hallowe’em… themed parties as I can. In the words of a dear friend, “This only happens once a year.” So, party, my Luvs!
Happy Witchy Loons – There is nothing that makes me smile wider than the joy on the face of a person who has just opened a gift they love. The grin on Amanda’s face, after she told me that she, too, donated her hair, tells me that I’m not the only one who grins like a happy witchy loon after giving.
Speaking of Giving... Yummy Sage, Sexy Rocks, Earrings and a Journal – I was bathing when my Piano Man stuck his head in the shower and… um, I know what you are thinking, and yes, there was some of that, but this bit of writing won’t discuss soapy skin or sexy grins. I’m bringing it up because it was when my Piano Man told me that I had received a package from Magic Love Crow. And although I didn’t know it yet, it was the perfect moment for the revelation. Stacy’s gift is one of passion, night and sage. Thanks so much, my dear friend! The earrings I bought from Cameron’s shop, aren’t they lovely? She sent stickers for me and the Little Princess, too. And the journal was a present from an instructor who said that my “words are life in colors.” Well, Gracias!
Shero’s Manliness in 5-Inch Heels – My Naughty Bits of Fiction is a fairly new blog, so I don’t have many followers there *sniffs, sniffs, and wipes face* But don’t fret, my Wicked Luvs, for I will keep you updated here. Yep, I like you that much. The latest bit of naughty fabulousness is “Shero: Glam, Bam, Thank You Ma’am,” my take on a couple of books that left me roaring, gasping, and with an intense desire for killer shoes.
Words of the Week
“When I was in the military they gave me a medal for killing two men and a discharge for loving one.”
~Epitaph of Leonard P. Matlovich, 1988
Smile, n. A peculiar contraction of the features of the face, which naturally expresses pleasure, moderate joy, approbation, or kindness “peculiar contraction?” Really? How peculiar, huh? ;-)
Gift, v. To endow with any power or faculty
Gay, n. Merry; airy; jovial; sportive; frolicsome. It denotes more life and animation than cheerful. I searched for the words transgender, homosexual, bisexual… but my ancient dictionary offered no meaning. It gives an expected
definition for sodomy—crime against nature. So I glared at the ridiculousness of it, and chose Gay instead. Because I
can. Because I know. Because I love.
(Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary, 1861)
