Hey there Book Monsters and Literal Addicts!
I have the day off today and the lovely and amazing Rebecca Zanetti is taking over the blog for the day. Make sure to show Rebecca some love by leaving her questions and comments below.
GUEST POST by Rebecca Zanetti:
Hi all! It’s wonderful to be back here at Book Monster Reviews! I’m a regular reader here, and it’s an honor to be able to jump in and play a bit. I’ve been wearing all four of my hats this week. I’m a mom (which includes attending basketball, softball, and lacrosse games this week), a college professor (it’s advising week—eesh), a lawyer (no, I don’t have time to file a materialman’s lien), and an author (I have a book due May 1st.)
So, in other words, like most of you…I’m juggling. Yeah, juggling. My hats all look different, you know? Lists are saving me right now, so I’ll make you a list of comparisons.
1) Wardrobe. It’s very different for each job.
a. Motherhood – There’s nothing wrong with the yoga outfit. Do I practice yoga? No. But hey, I wear the outfit.
b. Lawyer – Slightly wrinkled because I hate to iron suit…and great shoes. GREAT shoes!
c. Professor – I’m cool in a pair of jeans with hot shoes and a suit jacket.
d. Author – Jammie time, baby. Comfy jammies and snuggly socks.
a. Motherhood - If you’ve ever had to sew a bunny costume at midnight…you know how creative moms have to be!
b. Lawyer – Trying to convince a jury about anything requires analogies and some creative juices.
c. Professor – Trying to make ‘contracts’ interesting takes some major finagling in the creative realm.
d. Author – vampires. Really…vampires exist and they’re hot. You want them. Yes, creativity is a must…but hey, I’m in my jammies and am comfortable…so it’s easy to be creative.
a. Motherhood – Now, really. What’s wrong with Ramen noodles or Mac and Cheese? A good PB&J sandwich will also work in a pinch.
b. Lawyer – Usually lunch at a business meeting, so..salad. Yeah, it’s easy to eat and hard to spill.
c. Professor – We have an amazing deli at the college – it’s a surprise every day.
d. Author – Diet coke and coffee. Sometimes chocolate.
a. Motherhood – Making kids happy, secure, and safe is always a challenge, and it’s the most important thing you can do.
b. Lawyer - Clients, judges, and juries. All challenges. J
c. Professor – Time is the biggest challenge – there’s so much to cram into a semester!
d. Author – Deadlines. It’s sometimes difficult to be creative with a date looming over your head, but it’s doable.
5) How my amazing husband helps with it all.
a. Motherhood – My hubby is an amazing dad who coaches teams, brushes hair, and even can help out with a bunny costume if necessary.
b. Lawyer – Big Tone tells me he loves the shoes. Good enough!
c. Professor – Tony picks up kids and gives me more time to work.
d. Author – He’s very supportive, often taking the kids camping for the weekend so I can meet that darn deadline.
As you can see, my life works because it’s fun and my husband is amazing. He’s a hot Italian, too. J
Check out the upcoming release in the DARK PROTECTORS series:
DARK PROTECTORS, Book 3
Publication Date: April 24, 2012
Moira Dunne is a witch–the quantum physics kind. Time and space are her playthings. Which might explain why her one-night stand from a hundred years ago has turned up to “claim” her–and request her family’s assistance with the war he’s brewing. But the more she learns about Connlan Kayrs, the more she comes to think this is normal behavior for him…
There’s Nowhere to Hide
When Conn and Moira tumbled on the moonlit grass, Conn hadn’t meant to mark her for his mate for all time. She was only twenty! But it wasn’t easy to wait for her. It was even harder to forget her. So when he finally returns for his wicked-hot witch, he’s ready to let the sparks fly. Even if he burns up in flames…

A DEADLY DECISION
As King of the Realm, Dage Kayrs has learned to practice diplomacy. Still, it’s taken three hundred years to find his mate, so he’ll stop at nothing to protect her–even if it means turning his back on his own kind…
