Welcome back to Not Enough Time in the Day! It's been a bit hectic around here trying to juggle all of my hats and get time in for my writing. Of course there are always those unforeseen issues that crop up to throw a wrench into the best laid plans and I'm beginning to wonder if the entire tool box hasn't been dumped on me! LOL
Currently I'm on a "sabbatical" if you will. It's not something I chose to do, but it's being "forced" upon me. It seems the state of California doesn't feel it needs to move into the 21st century and give all of it's regulatory agencies automated. They rely on the good old snail mail for their license renewals and they tell you it can take up to 14 days to process said renewals. FOURTEEN DAYS!!! Who the hell takes two weeks to post a check? The California Veterinary Medical Board that's who! Even the Department of Motor Vehicles would rather you do most of your business with them online if at all possible. Why can't this agency do the same?
I have my own idea on that subject...and yeah it will be made into one of my books! HA!
So since I now have a bit more time on my hands, I thought I would get caught up on some of the things I had to put on the back burner during the last holidays. I've updated this blog and gave it a new look. Do you like it? Let me know. I can always change things up. Blogger makes it so easy to do...unlike some other agencies. :P
I'm going to work on cleaning the house for our little family get together this weekend. I was sick during the Christmas break and missed seeing the nieces and nephews. Now we get to have a second Yule/Christmas celebration here at our house and I couldn't be more excited about it. I'll be back in my element cooking for the bunch. LOVE IT!
I have multiple packages to mail out this weekend as well. Several people have won prize packages for the various blog hops I was a part of and now they will finally get their rewards! Like I said, it's been hectic around here and I wanted to be sure their packages wouldn't get lost in the mail. The winners will receive emails when the packages go out. I have one special winner who waited so patiently for two hand crafted crochet bunnies. Well, I have a surprise for her. She'll get her bunnies and a few other goodies as well. Thank you so much for your patience, Jean P! You are the best!
Sassy Vixen Publishing is getting larger and moving into a new area. We will be creating a shared world series set on an island where you will find Temptations Resort. It's a place where adults go to fulfill all of their sexual dreams and fantasies, whether they are sweet, sensual, exotic, or erotic and taboo. Temptations will have it all for them and more. Check with Sassy Vixen Publishing tab at the top of this blog to learn more. I'll be releasing my second book of poetry through Sassy Vixen within the next few weeks and within the next month new poet Doug Beindorf will have one out with us as well. I've known Doug since high school so to have the chance to publish his poetry is an exciting venture.
The Vixen has also branched out into book reviews. Sassy Vixen Reviews with The Vixen got started in response to Amazon deleting reviews of books posted by other authors. Now before you get your panties in a bunch, Amazon was trying to make the playing field fair. There were some authors behaving badly by creating dummy accounts to give themselves great reviews and then slam their competition. So until they get that worked out, Amazon was going around and randomly deleting reviews and stopping some authors from tagging books.
Not Enough Time in the Day will still continue the Writer's Words of Wisdom on Wednesdays and start up a new feature called Furbaby Fridays with Dr. Tammy. I'll be setting up those posts to cover the various funny things that happen to veterinarians and their staffs on a daily basis as well as try to touch upon animal health issues. As always, this blog is open for guest authors of any genre. I've tried to keep the adult stuff on my other blogs so the fans who are under 18 can visit here without having to worry about posts that have rated X excerpts from the erotic romance authors. If you would like a guest spot here, see the tab above for the guidelines and contact information.
Well, that's about where things stand for now. Here's looking at a bright new year for one and all!
