I've redesigned the look of my blog. Now that everything is great again I felt the need to redo my blog a bit. Blue is my favorite color and totally matches my chipper mood. What do you think? But don't worry, I still have my links section, my list of favorite reads, and the upcoming ad. However, I am changing the upcoming ad a bit. I will no longer just be doing upcoming books. I'll be doing upcoming books, PC games, DVD's, and games for the PS2. In other words, all the stuff I am into.:-) However, I am starting with the upcoming release of Divine By Blood by P.C. Cast which is due out September 1st.

My upcoming ad will now start to change once a week. Every Monday there will be something new to check out. And, I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend. Have a great one everybody!

Back In Business!

Ok people I am back. I know I promised to start updating at the beginning of August but my monitor died. Sorry. I have so much to gush about now that things are getting back to normal. First, I have a brand new monitor and this thing rocks. It's totally cool. It's a 19 inch widescreen LCD monitor by Acer. The picture is totally amazing and I am totally loving this!

Now I also quickly want to touch on last month. My mom, who is my best friend in the whole world, was admitted to the hospital on June 30th and they kept her until the 4th of July because her condition was life threatening. And, even though they let her go, she still had to have surgery to truly repair the problem. All of July was taken up dealing with this crisis. Fortunately though, she is doing much better.

August, as it turns out, has started off just as bad. Hopefully that will clear up soon. My mom's bank got absorbed by another bank and there have been so many screw-ups with the transition. My monitor died, and this month my health became the immediate problem. I suffer from seizures. On August 3rd, I had a bad one. I take handicapped busing because I am not allowed to drive with my seizures. I cracked my head in the glass and have broken my finger. Typing is interesting.:-) So August has not been that much better than July. But things are improving....I hope.

Like I said, I have this great new monitor and it's awesome. My mom is doing better and eventually I will heal. So it could be worse. Now, on to what I gush about. I read Safe Harbor by Christine Feehan. It was even BETTER than I had dreamed of. I loved it and will re-read it so many times. In fact, it arrived while my mom was in the hospital and I was afraid I was gonna lose her. It helped me get through that time. And it helped her during her recovery period once she got home. I am eternally in debt to Christine's creative mind for getting us through a very difficult time in our lives.

Next, I got a new game for my Playstation 2 called Marvel Ultimate Alliance. This game is awesome. It combines so many popular characters with so many obscure characters. And you even run into many characters from the Marvel world during the course of the game that you don't get to play as, but you do get to interact with. Awesome game!

I just got the final installment of Harry Potter and though I haven't read it yet I can't wait to. I also got the audio version of Dark Melody by Christine Feehan too. This is my favorite so far of her Carpathian series and I can't wait to listen to the book. I will do that this weekend. Speaking of her Carpathian series, the next one will be out in both book and audio formats at the end of the month. August 28th to be exact. She has both the book teaser and the making of the book trailer up on her website. Just click the link I have on my links section. She'll have the full trailer up shortly.

Well I think that's enough for now. I've rambled on long enough. But now that I have a new monitor, I promise to update more regularly.:-)
