2. Weather's been brutally hot this whole week.  Ugh.  100+ temps.  Then a freak storm blew in:

It didn't hit us but blew right over.  Other places in Riverside and the desert weren't so lucky.

**I'm afraid it's going to be one of those winters this year.

3. Watched the first episode of FOX's new TV series RED BAND
SOCIETY.  One thing really stood out to me: the stereotypical mean cheerleader that everyone hates.  She's skinny, blond, and white.  Is it just me or has this character been overdone?  The cheerleaders from my own High school were always friendly and had a smile.   Photo courtesy of

4. Excited for former critique writing buddy P.J. Hoover's latest success.  Had to go to local Barnes and Noble bookstore to grab a copy of her MG book TUT: A STORY OF MY IMMORTAL LIFE.

5. Hope to read the latest in the GATED series:

**And here's the cover of writing buddy's Christine Marciniak's upcoming book: 

And finally--Fun interview post of two of my characters from NO MORE GODDESSES:

**Guilty pleasure:

Hope to see Maze Runner either today or tomorrow!  Loved the series!  And Dylan O'Brien, Stiles in Teen Wolf, is Thomas!  Yay!!

After I have blood drawn for my thyroid check-up(pray I find a tech who can work with hard draws like me), I plan to grab a Starbuck's Salted Caramel frappuccino with soy and no whip cream.
