Friday Fun Times

How about a few notes of appreciation and shout outs for today. Toni DePalma is kicking off her blog tour for her newest release, The Devil's Temptation. This is on my TBR list. Love that cover and here's a short blurb.

Fighting the Devil brought Cooper and Grace together. But without a little evil to spice things up, the everyday life of a normal teenager is pretty dull. A summer job crewing on a billionaire’s yacht in sunny Italy might be just the ticket to rekindle passion. While the setting is perfect, the winding, sinister back streets of Naples are also the perfect playground for a scorned Lucifer to wreak havoc. And if evil doesn’t rip them apart, the sultry billionaire’s daughter and the sexy First Officer might be what it takes to finally destroy Cooper and Grace’s love forever.

Buy The Devil's Temptation today.

A special thanks to Crystal Collier. I won a book on her blog. I'm very much looking forward to reading Scotland's Guardians by Katharina Gerlach. Watch for my review.

A little wisdom from the Old Farmer's Almanac to think about this weekend. "To avoid nightmares smell your socks before going to bed." Let me know if that works.

Hopefully next week I'll be sharing the news that I have my A to Z posts finished. Those are my weekend plans.

Don't forget to read those wormfest posts. They're all so thought out as we embrace the future at the same time we have concerns of where it might take us.

Congrats to Alex J. Cavanaugh for reaching 2,000 followers. Just wow!

Saturday I drive my daughter to the train station so she can return to college in Boston. Sunday I drive my son to Penn State so he can dive into those last seven weeks of his college career.

Are your weekend plans as exciting as mine? Any special shout outs you want to share?


  1. Ooh, The Devil's Temptation does sound interesting. Also, congrats on winning a book from Crystal--that's awesome! And smelling socks before bed seems more nightmarish than actual nightmares, to be honest... XD

  2. Yeah smell the socks, then you won't sleep, no nightmares, guess it works haha

  3. You had me with the title. I'm a sucker like that. :)

  4. That's a lot of temptation.
    Congratulations on winning the book.
    And thanks for the mention. Yes, wow! Where will I put all those guests?

  5. You have a lot of driving in your future. I bet your son is eager to finish college.

  6. This book looks like a sequel. Is it?

    Be safe on the road, Susan!

  7. Hm, I have a lot of nightmares (always have) but I'm not sure about trying the socks! :)

  8. Congrats to Toni! Sounds like a fun book.

  9. that's a lot of driving susan---does sound like a fun book --happy weekend :)

  10. I'll be smelling my socks. It's an interesting experiment! My weekend includes a meeting with my local critique group and a 4 year old's birthday party with parents I don't know. Awkward!

  11. Smelling socks before bed. That's a new on me. Safe driving and Happy Weekend :-)

  12. I should tell my four-year-old about the Old Farmer's Almanac advice. She claims to have nightmares all the time, and she might just try it!

    Have a safe and wonderful weekend. ☺

  13. I very rarely have nightmares. Maybe it's because I don't smell my socks before bed.

    My wife is coming home today after being in Houston for the past 8 days. My vacation is over :) Actually it will be nice to see her.

    Tossing It Out

  14. Sounds like you have a big weekend planned. It must take off a huge weight to have nearly all your April posts completed. That's the way to do it. I don't know about the smelling your socks thing. I think it might give me nightmares. :)

  15. Thanks for all the links Susan!
    Aw, I know you'll miss your kids. Mine go back to school Monday and we had such a nice family week camping. I got to see so many sides of them without the interference of electronic devices distracting their attention. They've grown so much. And they're only 9 and 7!! :)
