A Little Pirate Action on the Way!

A brand spanking new print book is now available at Ellora's Cave.
Two, count them TWO modern day pirate stories in one book.
Landlocked by the talented Cindy Jacks and my humble story Marauder.

I read Landlocked and let me tell you it is one hot story.A woman's heart knows what it wants and in this story, it wants the hot, sexy pirate Brett Logan. Get ready ladies, he's one scrumptious morsel.

Grab a copy and get ready for some steamy action.

Did You Feel That?

What an interesting day. I felt my very first earthquake this afternoon. A very freaky sensation to say the least. Since I've never experienced an earthquake before I had no idea what it was. My husband at first thought it was the gas companies doing mapping in our area. They have large trucks that pound the ground to find the natural gas pockets beneath the earth. Que the news! Earthquake hits Virgina and is felt all the way into Toronto.

After absorbing the information, I found it rather exciting. I do like to experience new things. Don't care to do it again, but still, it was kinda cool. I do hope everyone in Virginia is well. I'm sure those on the West Coast are laughing at our reaction, but since we don't have building codes for earthquakes, because we don't get them, I believe we have the right to be anxious. I know in my area buildings are old and wouldn't stand a more powerful quake.

Anyway, It was interesting.

A side note, I have exciting news but don't know when I'll be able to share it, so stay tuned.

Proud Mom Post

As our racing season begins to come to the end, our kid is stepping up his game. Over the last month he's been improving at a rapid pace. Last night he was two laps shy of winning his first feature win. With the drop of the green flag, Nathan jumped into the lead and held his position for 18 laps. As each lap ticked off, the dust got thicker in the air and with that comes visibility issues. Two laps to go he came out of the second turn and couldn't see where he was. Unfortunately, he was too high on the track and went off the back stretch cutting a tire and finishing his night.

Was he upset? Not really. He made a statement last night and showed his fellow drivers he's serious about his racing. The kid opened a lot of eyes and received cheers from the crowd. He's still learning and with each race comes a new lesson. Last night was one of them. His win will come and it will taste so much sweeter when it does.

On a another note, our second car driven by a good friend of ours did WIN! The 02 started in the rear of the field and came up to second as the two lap signal was given. It looked like we'd have a one - two finish, but things happen and the 02 brought home the win.

All in all a great night for the Miller Racing crew. We all had fun and that's why we're in the sport.
