Reminders about giveaways, what I’m up to, and a question!
Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Before we talk, I want to remind you that two contests will be ending on this coming Thursday…

First, I’m giving away a pendant on the Smokin’ Hot Firemen website. There are two things you have to do to be eligible for the drawing. (Both are easy and painless!). Don’t miss out!

Second, my Two Signed Books Contest I’m hosting on this site also ends. And all you have to do to be eligible is post comments on blogs.

Okay, so back to our little chat. I’m up to my ears as usual. So many projects in so many differing stages. My mother asked me what I was working on, and by the time I finished listing them her eyes glazed over. It’s that bad. I did finish one little project on Sunday. Whew. So glad to mark another done! Have I shown you my work chart lately? It lists everything due January through June. Keep in mind it’s what I HOPE to accomplish.

1 BDSM novel (done)
2 CL-13–zombie short story (done)
3 Serialized novel, First   3 Episodes (late!)
4 Serialized novel – Episode 4
5 Delta Heat-4 novella: Twice the   Bang (done)
6 CM –   Episode 5
7 CM –   Episode 6
8 BDSM-2 novel (untitled)
9 Super-Secret short story (done) 
10 CM –   Episode 7
11 Triple Horn Brand-3 novella
12 Strokes-2, short story compilation
13 CM –   Episode 8
14 Femme Noir-3 novella
15 Cowboy Heat-short story
16 Cowboy Heat anthology
17 CL-14: short story
18 1-chapter proposal for novel
19 Penthouse short story
20 Kindle novelette
21 CL-15 short story
22 Decadent publishing novella
23 Paranormal novella for Samhain

It’s completely ridiculous, right? But some of these are very short. One is something I parcelled out, because the publisher wants it parcelled out. But still… And I’ve started the Smokin’ Hot Firemen blog. Another blog for the High Octane Heroes will be coming shortly. And three different book campaigns will begin.

I’m tired just thinkin’ about it. And now you know why I have so many guests lately. So if you see me screwing around, remind me about priorities. I don’t mind nagging. I respond very well to the crack of a whip. ;-)

So here’s the question for you…

If you could build a recreation area atop a penthouse rooftop of a 20-story building, what would be the theme of your elevated playground? Would you open it to the public? Or would you keep it for yourself and your besties?

    If I could build a recreational park it would be themed after some of my favorite childhood characters like Mickey Mouse or Curious George, or Domestic Monsters, Garfield the cat, or Peanuts because I have always seen theme parks as something for kids to enjoy. I would also share it with everyone, because lets face it, theme parks are no fun unless you can share it with others.

    I hope your writing projects go well Delilah! I am curious about your paranormal novella for Samhain. What is the major folklore you draw on?

    I would have it open to my family and close friends. There would be a pool, hot tub, pool table, a place to cook, and then one separate section that be my library. Reading to be is recreation! Unfortunately none of this will ever happen :( So for now my library will continue to be my library and we will go visit other places for our recreational needs.

    Wesley! All I have right now is a title for that paranormal story. but there’s “moon” in it. So, it could be vamp or were or witch. Not sure where I want to go… And I like the idea of a theme part on a roof in Manhattan.

    Teresa! That sounds awesome. And cozy. And something doable on a smaller scale. :lol:

    If I could build a park it would be open to evryone and I would have everyone design their own childhood fantasy on it. bibbiesparks@yahoo.com.

    I would open it only to family and close friends. The theme would be flowers, I love flowers. It would be a calm serene place.

    Good luck with all your projects.

    Ooh, I like Teresa’s idea–a reading wonderland! Ultra comfy lounge chairs, some gazebos with cushy reading spots, maybe some hammocks for peeps who like that sort of thing… snacks and drinks at the ready for when you need to refresh yourself… How fun!

    And Delilah, YOU are a crazy woman! In the best possible sense of the word! I cannot believe how much you have on your plate! But I’m thrilled because that means all the more for us ultimately to read! WOOOT! Write, DD, WRITE!

    Definitely for me and my besties. I would make it an adult playground. I would have a huge playground area. A pool with a couple of waterslides. A bar area with some pool tables, video games, and dartboards. I would also have several televisions, with DVD players and tons of movies. I would also have grills, with a patio area, and food for anyone that wanted it. I would also have an area with comfy chairs and books galore to sit and read. Definitely some hammocks, lounge chairs, and chaise lounges to relax and read.

    My recreational park atop a high rise would have an infinity waterslides, an infinity pool, a gym in an enclosed area up there and a juice bar stocked with alcohol, too. People would be welcome if they pay the small surcharge for such a neat establishment.

    I would keep it for friends and family.
    A hid-a-way for us.
    Something with a pool, lawn chairs, BBQ area, Hot tub and anything to kick back and relax.

    :-) Keeping my fingers crossed on the contest. Thanks.

    Holy Hannah. I’m an underachiever 8-O
    You’re one busy lady.

    I’d have a tranquil garden and BBQ area plus maybe a hot tub and it would definitely be just for me and close friends.

    My playground would have to be my own private library, complete with 24 hour refreshment service.

    I love the idea of a pool, hot tub and library that would be open to friends and family. Of course the pool would be heating and open for physical therapy also.
