    Types Of Exercise I Enjoy Suffering Through

    All right, who is choosing these Wednesday topics? When forced to choose, the types of exercise I enjoy would fill a very short list! I didn’t grow my bottom to this size by enjoying exercise!

    I don’t like the gym, because I’m a bit self-conscious and I have no idea how to use the equipment. I fall down a lot, so running is out. You can do so much more damage to your face when you fall down at speed! Trust me on THAT!

    Also, if you fall over while rollerskating, your face—and your glasses—can take a beating! I have first-hand knowledge of this fact!

    Walking is about the only thing I’ll embrace, but I need to have a target—I don’t want to walk around the block just for the sake of it. I’m happy to take the dog for a walk. Or walk to the local KFC for a snack! Hahaha! On holiday we tend to find ourselves in places where long walks lead to fun discoveries and in those situations, I’ll walk all day and all night to see the sights.

    So, I guess my answer is walking. And if there’s a reward dressed up as cake at the end, all the better!

    Now, tell me, fit people reading this, what types of exercise do you enjoy?

    Are There Books I Want To Reread?

    Ah Mah Gahd!  Books I want to reread? Rereading? No! Just no!

    Once upon a time, when I was a teenager without access to my own money to buy books, I reread my favourites. Little Women, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Nimbin all had dog-eared pages by the time I was done.

    Before I had a Kindle, I might have occasionally reread something on my bookshelf, and I definitely gave my well-loved copy of Twilight a workout. (I have to admit to skipping to the part where Edward comes back on subsequent reads. Who needs any part of that book without him front and centre, eh?)

    Now? With eBooks so reasonably priced, and an unlimited supply of new reading material available online at a second’s notice, I’d no more reread a book than fly to the moon! Every time I read something awesome I’m thrilled to move onto the next!

    And the next! And the next!

    I’m a bad blogger this week, thumbing my nose at the topic. So how about you tell me what you like to reread? Because I know that almost everyone will say they love to revisit their favourites!

    My Celebrity Crushes

    Hehehe…. Celebrity crushes.

    A laugh to some and a fight to the death for others (mostly those peeps fighting over whether the Outlander dude is hot. For the record – not hot! Hahaha!)

    Anyway, I never took too much notice of who was cute and who wasn’t. Until I started writing romance. I blame it on hours spent scouring stock photo sites searching for just the right kind of smooth bicep for a book teaser, or a guy with just the right lips so that when we cut his head off for the cover, there’s still something to drool over. It could also be the hundreds of books I now read where that first meeting makes your heart skip a beat. Either way, I can confess to two men I find particularly hot.

    First, and I’m pleased to say he’s older now so it’s not as lame, is Robert Pattinson. *fans face*. I also have a particular favourite photo, just to complete the horror, which I’m sharing with you here. You’re welcome! If you click on that fabulously square jawline you can read the article about how perfect he is and how he is officially the world’s most handsome man.  Take THAT Sam-whats-his-face. You cannot argue with

    Best Book, Movie or TV Couples?

    I’m at a loss for this week’s challenge.

    Besides the couples I’m making do weird shit together in my latest book, (The Billionaire’s Surprise, if you’re interested! lol) I don’t really pay much attention to any others once I’ve moved on to my next target.

    I read books and watch movies and tv, then usually forget about whatever goodness I just enjoyed. There’s just so much content in the world these days that I find it impossible to keep it all in my brain.

    I do have one vivid recollection of a couple though. Does everyone remember THAT kiss from Spiderman? The upside-down kiss? When I think of perfect couples I think

    The Secret Billionaire’s Club Is Nearly Finished

    I’m so excited to report that my latest book series, The Secret Billionaire’s Club is nearly finished.

    Complete. Done. Finito. Secret Billionaire's Club

    It’s equal parts exciting and sad!

    My nine billionaires and their attempts to win a dating bet have taken up the better part of my writing attention for a whole year and it’s nearly over. The last book will see us visit each couple to find out how they’re doing since they found love in each of their books. It’s super fun to tie up loose ends and mess with them a bit. Gee, I love messing with them! Hahaha!

    The Secret Billionaire’s Club started as a group project.

    Late in 2018, ten authors joined forces to each write ten books related to a holiday during the year. The result was a whole lot of diverse and interesting stories that I’ve totally loved reading. You can check the list of authors in the back of any of my Secret Billionaire books, and I’ll probably do a post later on each of the authors in the group.

    Merek, Sayer, Danny, Cross, Cole, Kent, Sam, Wyatt and Everett have captured my imagination. They’re funny, and different, and quirky each in their own way, and the women they choose to be theirs are equally as sassy.

    Why don’t you check them out for yourself and see if you have a favourite?
