Happy Birthday to Bartley! (FREE Books for Everyone!)


Today, my little cuddly buddy turns two! (January will mark two years since I've had him.) I honestly think my life has been better because of this little guy. He's a constant source of cuteness. He loves to cuddle. He winks at me! He's playful. But most importantly, he makes me so happy and he can make me laugh when I don't feel like it. Bartley is my best friend and I'm very happy to have him. Happy birthday, Bartley!

Let's celebrate by making my books FREE! 

That's right! I'm making all of my books (the Bold as Love seriesDon't Panic, and Breakaway) free today only! Be sure to snag a copy if you haven't done so yet.

Happy reading, everyone!

When I Need Inspiration I...

Inspiration is hard to come by sometimes. I have a couple of different techniques to help me become inspired. Today, I'm going to share those with you.

  • Listen to music. Pretty much any kind of music. My favorites range from country to R&B to rap to rock to the oldies.
  • My family. Sometimes, I get inspired by what is happening in our lives.
  • Reading. This should be first. Reading is the best way to get inspired. When I read a wonderful book, motivation sets in and I'm off to my laptop.
  • Quotes. Quotes are a fantastic source of inspiration. They really get my mind going.
  • Pictures. What a great way to wonder what the story is behind a picture and then creating it.
These are my top five resources for inspiration. What inspires you?

Ask the Characters

It's Monday and a question has been submitted for Emily. If you have a question for one of the characters, click on the tab above and submit it. It could be answered next Monday. Hopefully, everyone will have a merry Monday instead of a moody Monday.

Q: Why do you keep worrying over your mom? I understand how she treated you better than you think but Jake loves you why didnt you trust him?
A: It was hard to not worry over my mom. It was even harder to trust someone that I just met after experiencing what I did. I'm sorry that you understand so well how she treated me. I've come to learn that trust is earned over time. Hope this answers your questions.

Update Time!

Hey y'all! I hope y'all experienced a sunny day. It's been storming on and off here all day. It's one nasty storm! A couple things have occurred since the last time I did an update post. Therefore, I know it is that time again.

Sweetness is in the works of getting translated into Spanish and French. If that gets successful sales, then I'm Yours will be translated as well.

If you are looking for a sweet deal on the paperback for Sweetness, then send me an email for a special link and coupon code to purchase Sweetness for only $5! Limited number will be given out so hurry up and email me at lindsay_paige@ymail.com

My birthday was a huge success. I spent the day with my brother's girlfriend. I renewed my license, registered to vote, bought a lottery ticket (won two bucks!), and bought a can of air. Those ultra duster's for the computer...yeah, you have to be 18 to buy those. My friend and I went to the Adam and Eve store (not much there really) and Victoria's Secret. The ladies at Victoria's Secret were fabulous! They were extremely helpful and sweet. They even sang happy birthday to me!

After that, I went and got a tattoo. Yup. The girl who faints from a shot or drawn blood went and got a tattoo. No worries. As long as I'm laying down or leaning forward, resting on something, I am fine. My tattoo is special to me because it has the colors and popular symbol (puzzle pieces) of the National Autism Society.

This is an image that was taken right after the guy finished. It's on my left shoulder. Isn't it adorable?

Sweetness and I'm Yours will be available on various e-formats (other than Kindle) the second week of March. (I think that's right.) Whatever It Takes is a bit behind schedule. I've got a couple of things to wrap up and then it's back to editing. I've got roughly 50 more pages to write before I can start editing.

As for my other projects, I haven't worked on them much. I haven't been in the mood, but that's no excuse, right? No worries. I'm putting my butt back to work tonight.

That's it for this update post. Have a lovely weekend folks.

Bad Habits-Everybody has some.

Today, I'm talking about bad habits. Everybody has at least one bad habit. Emily, Jake, Drake, Mike, and myself are here today to share our bad habits. Feel free to share your bad habits too!

Lindsay
  • Procrastination. -When it comes to school, I put the pro in procrastination.
  • Impulsive. -Sometimes, I have these impulsive sprees. It's like a shopping spree, but worse. Thinking things through can be a tough task sometimes!
  • What my Dad said: Not keeping my clothes put up. (Lame!)
  • What My Momma said: "I don't know where to start!" Haha, thanks Momma.
Emily
Hi everyone! When someone asks about your bad habits, it's hard to come up with some. Here are the ones I have (and a couple of Jake's too!)
  • One of my bad habits is that sometimes, I care too much about what others think.
  • I'm scared to speak my mind when it matters most.
  • I try to handle things on my own instead of asking for help when I need it.
Enough about me. Let's talk about some of Jake's bad habits that really irritate me sometimes.
  • He can be hard to talk to sometimes.
  • The littlest things can make him jealous. Who knew he was the jealous type?
  • Oh, who am I kidding? I love all of his habits- good or bad.
Jake
Such kind words, Sweetness. Thanks. :) I'll work on those habits. I, on the other hand, will not list any of Emily's habits. I'm just that nice. (That probably made Sweetness smile.) Let's see...my bad habits?
  • Occasionally, I get my priorities mixed up.
  • I take Sweetness for granted too much. (Thanks for all you do Sweetness!)
  • I have to agree with Emily. Sometimes, I talk when I should keep my mouth shut and listen.
  • I don't always handle things as I should.
Drake
Someone thinks I have bad habits? What?! I don't think I have any bad habits.

Jake
I can list some for you.
  • Talks too much.
  • Way too hyper early in the morning.
Shall I continue?

Drake
Those aren't bad habits. Those are just things that make me Drake. :p

Mike
  • Emily is my baby girl. I have to admit that pretty much let her do whatever she wants. I have a hard time saying no to my little girl. That's my biggest bad habit.
Lindsay
Well, I hope you enjoyed everyone sharing their bad habits. Except for Drake that is. :) What are some of your bad habits? Do you share any with us? Please share!
