To Dragon or Not to Dragon?

Is anyone out there familiar with the Dragon speech-to-text software?  Not the free sample that comes with your phone’s swype keyboard, but the actual computer program?  I’ve been wondering if I should try it or not, since my hands keep having problems.  Of course, I don’t exactly write the kind of books I can speak aloud around my kids, either… which is why I’m only ‘considering’ it at this point.  If anyone has any feedback or opinions on it, though, I’d greatly appreciate it.


The Zen Lounge has another tour stop this week.  Starting tomorrow morning, I’ll be over at Dena Garson’s site Real… Hot… Romance… with another exclusive interview from yours truly, as well as a chance to get in on the prize rafflecopter!  That’s a FREE $10 Amazon / B&N gift card or a FREE e-book copy of The Zen Lounge each going to a random participant, and it doesn’t matter when you join, just as long as you get in on it before March 10th!

Have A Great Week Everyone!


We Don’t Wanna Talk About It

Yeah… that sports thing that happened on Sunday.  We’re not speaking of it, but we still love our team! That’s the way it should be.  We don’t, however, have to love that blasted Chevy commercial that gave us all heart failure for like 3 seconds!  Not okay, Chevy! Not okay!

Now, for some happier, far more exciting news:  The Zen Lounge’s next blog tour stop begins tomorrow morning at Unabridged Andra.  Another awesome blog filled with reviews and giveaways, to include a $300 Valentines Dinner for two, so if you’re still looking for that perfect Feb 14th magic, you might want to hurry on over to Andra’s and enter to win.

Thanks to the help of the wonderful Goddess Fish Promotions, who has organized my entire event, a FREE e-book copy of The Zen Lounge has now been added to the tour rafflecopter!  So if that $10 gift card wasn’t incentive enough, now you have two reasons to come check out an exclusive Interview with my two favorite sub-characters, Matt Gryphon and Hilo Mehnce.  It’s definitely entertaining, as even I have very little control over how these guys respond to their little Q&A.

Hope to see ya there!






(World of WordPress… hehehe)

First, I really hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday!  Ours was great, hectic, fun and then I got a little stomach bug right afterward, or I would’ve been back sooner.  I do have an exciting announcement, though, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that everyone’s hangovers aren’t too bad in the morning, because…
