Pick Me Up Monday

Happy Monday All
Well it's the start of another week. Monday's are never my ideal day personally. I have great positive sayings to get through these. Like, you have to have a Monday to get a Friday. But whatever the positive reinforcement I use lets face it. Monday's, for me at least, sucks rocks!
Now with that said, you can understand why I need some positive visuals to turn to in order to get through the day. Well you can't get better than this. Dang, I could look at that chest and abs all week long and never get tired.

Well, now that we have a perky visual to set the mood for the week I am ready to delve into my worlds and see what kind of mischief I can get my heroes and heroines into. I guess you could call me their idea of Murphy's Law. Whatever can go wrong, etc.  I put them in the middle of a bad situation and then enjoy seeing how they get out of their dilemma.

Here is the basic concept from the latest WIP's of Knights of Excalibur which I'm working on. How much fun would it be for Arthur to come face to face with the one woman he ever loved and the one who betrayed him. Worse, she has no memory of him let alone her adulterous affair with Lancelot. He would want to punish her and yet what good would it do if she had no memory of him or the events that took place so very long ago.

Or Zeke's book in the Dark Breed series where he is forced to  marry a woman he never met and from a warring race he thinks beneath him. Bad but not very earth shattering. Until you add the fact Zeke's new bride is found over the body of the king, Zekes father, a bloody dagger in her hand and of course poor daddy dearest is full of holes. And she has no recollection of the act of violence.

With The Summoning I put the leader of the Sentinels, a man known for his distrust of women as the protector of a woman who is the key to saving two worlds. That is a bit uncomfortable for the Hero but not very alarming. That is until it is discovered the only way to save the two worlds is with her death by his hand. Yeah, that can kind of suck.

Well I better get back to work and I hope you have a great week with no sign of Murphy or his stupid Laws for you to contend with.

Until next week take care.


  1. Good luck to you, Shannan! It sounds like you may need it this week. ;)
    I just have to say, all of them sound very intriguing!

  2. Where would we be without good, old Murphy. He shows up in my books, as a matter of fact my paranormal has much the same vibe, not entirely mind you, but Murphy's finger prints are all over it.
    Have a great week.
