New Year’s Resolutions Redux

Since last week I offered up my list of New Year’s Resolutions, I thought I’d follow up this week with letting you know just how I’m doing with mine! Feel free to let me know how you are doing with yours.

On the eating healthier, it’s a big “yes.” So far we’ve been watching what we are eating and staying away from lots of bad things. I’ve even started cutting back on my use of artificial sweeteners and the number of diet sodas I drink.

On the exercise, another “yes!” I’ve been going to the gym every day for a combination of aerobic and strength training. I’ve also been tracking how many steps I take and have really cracked that 10K barrier every day. In fact, I’ve been over 20K every day.

On the spending I earn a maybe. I’ve been good about not only brown bagging it, but today I made my first microwaved eggs. Pretty tasty I must say. So why only a maybe? My daughter and I hit IKEA last week to buy a needed piece of furniture for her bedroom. The clothes on the floor have finally found a home! Nevertheless it was a kaching on the wallet.

Still, there are lots more days in the month to offset that one big expense.

On the writing, I’ve had to put aside BORN TO SERVE, the first Diana and Ryder book in the REBORN vampire novels to do edits on NIGHT OF THE COUGAR which is another of the Nocturne Cravings I am doing. COUGAR will be out in June of this year and here is a little teaser for it:

A year ago, Jamie Morrison found passion in the arms of Galen Hawke, but a car accident ended their relationship. Now, she is reunited with Galen and discovers that he is something other than human. With a full moon on the horizon, all hell . . . and passion . . . are about to break loose.

I’m having a blast writing these erotic CRAVINGS stories and hope you’re enjoying them as well. In fact, I wanted to share the cover for my February CRAVINGS release with you.

Whoo, that is one sexy cover for NOCTURNAL WHISPERS!

So share your thoughts on your resolutions, the cover, anything really.

  1. This year I’ve decided to skip resolutions *lol* and instead live by a word I’ve chosen.

    My ‘word’ for 2012 is GRATITUDE – giving thanks to the Lord for all my blessings that have come to me and my family, and many more yet to follow. This will hopefully make me humble and a better person overall ;o)

    I’m grateful today for the opportunity of assisting my sister!

    All the best for 2012 and your resolutions. It goes without saying but your covers are SUPERB!!!!

    *MWAH* — sending warm sunshine from sunny South Africa ;o)

  2. I’m having trouble with the healthy eating: too much leftover chocolates, pie and cookies.
    Exercise doing OK, I’m walking again every day.
    Your cover looks great!
    Shopping!!! I just spent $70. on a pair of shows; and why you say? For work; I stand on my feet all day every day and my feet have finally said enough is enough. So after talking to friends I went out and bought a good no great pair of shoes for my poor aching feet!

  3. You got me hooked on your book covers since aztec gold. I love the pyramids. You always write what I like to read about. Can’t wait to read more of your books. I am saving alot & spending less. It really was not a resolution, but since my hubby works & I stay home you always have to watch your outgoing income.—Rachel
