This week was pretty good, calm. Some might consider boring, but I don’t mind uneventful times in my life. I’ve had many eventful times, both bad and good. So, easy coasting is fine with me.

I sent a lot of books off to New York this week, some were giveaway prizes and some purchased books. Thought it was odd that most were headed to the same state.

I went shoe shopping. I haven’t bought shoes in a long time. I got a real cute pair of over the knee brown leather boots and a pair of gray suede short boots with zippers on either side. Booties, maybe? I don’t what they are called. All I know is they will look good with jeans.

I had a friend over for dinner last night. Made chili in the crockpot. The place smelled wonderful, like fall. I don’t like my chili spicy or too soupy. And I always top it with Fritos, cheddar cheese, and a spoonful of sour cream.  When I was a kid we used to call these lead bellies.


By the way, this isn’t my chili. Looks good, though.

Discovered a new show on Netflix. Technically it’s not new, but new to me. Derek starring Ricky Gervais.


This is one of the best shows I’ve watched. It’s original, sweet, funny, heartbreaking, heartwarming. I don’t use this word often, but it’s brilliant. And Ricky Gervais . . .incredible. If you don’t have Netflix, sign up for the free month just to watch Derek.

Book Report

Book #5 is coming along. The talented Murphy Rae Hopkins of Indie Solution and I worked really hard on the cover design. It’s gorgeous. So different than my other covers. I can’t wait to share it with y’all.

Here’s a song from the playlist that’s been on repeat.


fall back


Hope y’all have a great weekend. ~Alison
