The sound barrier has been broken

Aaah!!!! I can't believe it! Just by chance, I check the Phaze.com website last night just to look at my cover and see if there were any new updates. My novella, "Adam and E-V-E" is on sale NOW! I wasn't expecting it to go on sale this soon. I've been trying to drum up sales without being a pest. That's hard. But I'm so happy that I actually have a work out for sale. People can buy a story I created. That's an awesome feeling, let me tell ya'!

So now that I've updated my website and worked out my daily blog, I need to fix something to eat. I have a huge day in front of me. I have to make sure I'm all packed and ready for RT tomorrow. Big day. Big event. I hope I don't get swallowed up in it. Gulp!

Stay sexy,

Wet hair and an overstuffed suitcase

I know I'm close to being ready to go to the RT convention but I feel so behind. I feel like I'm missing something. It's all happening so fast for me that I'm a bit overwhelmed at times. In a matter of months I've gotten a novella accepted, about to be published and I'm going to be signing it at a huge conference. Talk about your coming out parties! Aside from packing, I still have gifts to buy and a website to update since I mentioned I would be offering a contest. Me and my big, adorable mouth. And I have to practice signing my name. Don't want to slip and sign the wrong name. I would do that because I'm an idiot.

So I'm sitting here with conditioner in my hair. My plan of packing one suitcase into another so I can bring more stuff home is not going to work. Hey, what can I say? I'm a woman and I love shoes. I could fill one suitcase full of shoes. But I won't...this time. And I have to finish that story for Erotique. I can't believe how behind I got this weekend. And look at what I'm doing now. Damn it! Damn blog. It's addicting, I tell ya'!

Okay, going to rinse and write in that order. Then spend all day tomorrow packing for real and getting all of my goodies together. St. Louis, here I come!

Stay sexy,

My first booksigning!

I've posted this everywhere but I just had to put it here to make it real...at least for me. It's that whole, "If a tree falls in the woods..." sort of mentality I have. If I don't share, then it's not happening.

Anyway, I've stalled long enough. I got news from my editor with www.Phaze.com that I'll be signing disc copies of my novella, "Adam and E-V-E" at the Romantic Times convention this week! And here I thought I was just going to go and smile and give out my candy. I actually have to work! But that's a good thing. I've been wanting to do this writing thing for years. It'll be great to be able to do a book signing and show off the fruits of my labor. I'm going to call it grape but you can pick any fruit you want.

Now I need to make up my candies to give away and finish writing this novella for Erotique. I'm starting to suck with my deadlines!

Stay sexy,

It's 2:30 a.m. Do you know where my head is?

Good morning, all. Man, what the hell am I doing up this early? Had a hard time sleeping. I'm working on a story for Erotique Press. It's not working out the way I wanted to and I promised to have it to the editor this weekend. Thought sleeping on it would help. Only made it worse. I kept thinking about the story, the characters, the conflicts. If you're a writer then you know what I'm talking about.

On a good note, the editor of Phaze.com where my first novella, "Adam and E.V.E." will be published liked my final edits. Whoo! Hoo! Again, if you're a writer, you know that feeling too. She's going to clean up the formatting and send it off to be proofed. With any luck, I'll have disk copies of it to sign at the booksigning in RT (I guess). I'm not sure how that goes. Gee, is my novice showing? Haa! Haa!

I also want to rework a couple of short stories for the Phaze.com Heatsheet Sparklers contest. What can I say? Once a contest slut always a contest slut.

Okay, now I'm just stalling. I'm going to finish this damn story by breakfast if it kills me! Hopefully it won't. I want to be able to sign my novella at the convention (or not, still not sure if that's what I'm doing.) Sigh. It's a bitch being so new at something. I feel like a virgin again!

Stay sexy!

Kiss them for me. I may be delayed.

I went in kicking and screaming but look at me now. I have my own blog! Never thought I would ever say that.

So who am I? Just a girl with a dream...to write sexy romances. And what can I say? Mom's proud so I guess I'm doing something right!

Not going to stay too long on this blog. I would get tired and you would get bored. Neither are good things to happen. So I'm going to work on a short story for Erotique Press. Oh! I guess I should tell you what's going on with my little world. I'm going to have a novella published through www.Phaze.com called "Adam and E.V.E." Before you Bible-thumpers start praising my name, it is an erotic romance. Lots o' sex. It's a science fiction tale about what happens when you really enact the phrase, "Make love, not war." If you want to read more, go to my website at www.BridgetMidway.com and read an excerpt. I should warn you. The excerpt is unedited so it's not the spit-and-polish version it should be. Let's see. I just said sex, Bible, spit and polish. I'm going to Hell.

Happy reading! I'm going to get going.
