Nuts and Bolts

Okay, you'll have to bear with my giddiness today. First off, I'm about to embark and a little gambling spree to Vegas which always leaves me excited and second off I FINALLY am happy with the ending of Plundered Booty. That means as soon as I get back I'll do one more read through make the final correction and then start the process of peddling my Booty. For those who do not know that is the title of my most recent novel. I've been finished for a while, but the end didn't feel quite right and now I'm satisfied on the whole. Puns intended by the way.

Also you may notice, I gave up on highlighting the individual blogs I subscribe too and just added every last one to my list on the right. I never seemed to have the time so I'm sorry to those I didn't get to which is the vast majority of you.

Also do not forget that I will be gone and therefore unable to link every one's My Town Monday posts this week. The talented and soon-to-be-published Barrie Summy has graciously offered to assume the role of link master for this week so drop her a line and let her know when you get yours up. I still hope to have one done myself but we'll see how that goes. And I have scheduled a few posts to come up while I'm away so don't abandon me completely.

Have a great Vegas trip.
I'm not a gambler but I would see every Cirque Du Soleil show in town if I had the chance.
I do know that there is a daily Texas Hold 'em tournament at the Rio with a $44 buy in. There are rarely more than three tables, so the odds of winning aren't too bad.
See ya on the flip side.

Ah Travis, have a super time and I'll bet Jen looks hot, hot, hot in her capri's (no pun intended!) Check out my blog when you get another chance, still trying to figure out this whole linkin' thang! I just posted something that amused me...but amusing myself is what I do best!

Hooray for finishing your book! Have a good time with those one armed bandits in Vegas.

Blogging is like work after awhile and everyone needs a break from it.

Congrats on finishing your novel, Travis! As a fellow author, I know how difficult it is to get those final touch-ups nailed.

Have a safe/fun trip!

"Peddle My Booty" sounds like a delicious follow up to Plundered Booty. Seriously. Of course you might have some thinking it's total porn but, hey, think of how many *more* people will buy it. :D

Have a great trip and I know Jen will look FABU in her Capris. Don't forget to pack the eyelash curler. :D

Melissa Marsh said...

Hope you win big money in Vegas! That will be a sweet complement to finishing the novel!

Congratulations, Travis!!!!! Hope you're having fun in Vegas and best of luck on the upcoming submissions.
