Freebie Friday!

For #FreebieFriday, I decided to post a link to a bunch of free ebooks for your reading pleasure.  I am a bit harassed right now but slowly catching up after my two week illness.  So enjoy reading!



What’s Up Wednesday

Hello all!

Today, I’m joining the blog hop What’s Up Wednesday which was thought up by the lovely Jaime!  Visit her blog to see a list of participants in the What’s Up Wednesday hop.

Now on with the show:

What I’m Reading

Currently, I am reading two books by two very different authors.  First is White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout, who is an amazing YA author.  I haven’t gotten very far into the book yet, but so far it seems to be a good read.  I’ll get to see once I can sit down to read.

The second is the Devil of the Highlands by Lynsay Sands, which is a book I have read before but I felt the urge for a Scottish Historical Romance.  I find this book to be a humorous easy romance to read and it is quite enjoyable.  I love Cullen.  ^_^

What I’m Writing

I’m writing a review to When I Break by Kendall Ryan right now, but we’ll pretend I’m actually making progress on it right now when I’m really, really not.  I want to start my next fiction project (i.e. novel) but my time spent writing has been diminished.  And I got off-topic again.  As I was saying, I’m working on a review.  See it on A Caffeine Addict’s Books soon (I hope).

What Inspires Me Right Now

Right now I’m having a lot of thought on animal rights issues such as the wolf hunts, the zoos killing off their animals, shelters euthanizing animals, and endangered species being delisted before they are properly ‘recovered’.  It’s my thing right now despite the fact I should be trying to immerse myself into my paranormal world.  This is why I’m having such a hard time writing.  However, these issues are important.  Maybe I’ll somehow incorporate them into my next story.  We’ll see!

What Else I’ve Been Up To

I’ve actually been insanely busy.  I’m trying to write an important letter, organize the books on my computer, run scans, organize email account, spring cleaning of the apartment, write, read, and related activities that include Facebook and Twitter.  I am also busy watching my 3-year-old nephew who is just about the cutest freaking kid ever.  My brother and his amazing girlfriend made one adorable and funny boy.

Hopefully all the above activities will make my day a tad more productive once I am organized.

And goodnight folks.  I’m off to read and go to bed.


Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

In case the title of this blog entry escaped you, today I’m excited to write about coffee.  You see, I love coffee.  As in, if I could, I would elope with my coffee.  Coffee has not let me down, ever.  Unlike people, coffee is always there for you as soon as you brew it.  It does what you want it to, when you want it.  And it tastes sooooo good.

I am not a coffee snob, except that I don’t like burnt or old coffee.  I don’t care if it’s gourmet, ground from beans, or Folgers Classic Roast.  I don’t care if it’s Starbucks or Liquid Planet or any of the zillion kiosk-type coffee huts around town.  I simply love coffee.  So in honor of coffee, I will share these wonderful coffee links with you.

(And if I forget any, feel free to shoot me an email at selenityjade @  After all, I live in Montana.  My exposure to nice coffee is Starbucks.)

There is of course the classics:

What IS Coffee?  Wikipedia – Coffee

Famous Coffee –

Crazy About Coffee –

Humorous –

Coffee & Health

And lastly, I want you all to tweet something about making coffee.  You’ll get a bot response.  No joke, it’s happened to me twice.  I laughed so hard I snorked!  It was great.  Only a coffee addict would think of that.

Now go forth and drink that coffee!  I will.


Mind-Blowing Art

I’m still zombified from Daylight Savings Time so I’m still behind on everything.  So I’m up extremely late and working through my Facebook notifications when a Twitter friend asks me if I saw these pics.  I was completely blown away by these!  Keep in mind, I do not know who designed or took these photos but I just couldn’t help but share.  They are amazing!

A Beautiful Gate


Both of these are just beautiful.  Take a look, especially if you’re a paranormal or fantasy fan.

Now off to read White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout and write a review on Kendall Ryan’s When I Break.


The Internet is a Vast Place

Yes, I said it.  The internet is a vast, vast, VAST place.  I have spent two days (which is why I didn’t post yesterday) messing with my blog settings and widgets, with twitter, HootSuite, Facebook, my Google mail folders, and such.  I am still not done!  I’m still messing with the look of this blog and my book blog, plus my Google+ page(s) and how they’re connected to HootSuite (which is annoyingly elusive!), and my Remember the Milk list, plus Facebook notifications so I know what’s going on with my favorite people!  I’m so mind-blown it is not remotely funny.

In fact, if I wasn’t so blasted tired of this crap I would have linked all these awesome applications and social media pages.  However, right now… I just don’t care!

Actually, if any of you happen to know the Google+ navigation well, I’d love to ask your help.  I can’t get my freaking pages to link together right.  So email me at  This is my problem:  my blogs, which should link to my Selenity Jade page, don’t.  And my HootSuite which should link Twitter to my Rochelle Pritchett page, also don’t.  They’re backward!  I mean seriously!  Gah!

So I’m currently suffering Internet Vastness Overload.  I guess I’m lucky I hate photos so I don’t take pictures I need to organize.  There is always a silver lining I suppose.


Frantic Picture Search

Why do people wait until the last minute to do things?  I have to admit, I am very guilty of this sometimes.  For example, it’s 10:25 pm where I am at as I’m typing this out in a quick attempt to post again for the sixth day in a row.  However, since today I insisted on trying to walk (in slushy snow rain no less) for my back exercise, and then I’m dragged into helping my mother find pictures of my father from way back when, and then I’m trying to post anything worth reading and the day is almost over!

I completely created a giant run on sentence there.  My point is I have had absolutely no chance to come up with a valuable blog post.  I want to start reviewing the books I read, plug my favorite authors, post about my struggles with agoraphobia and pain, and all of that fun stuff, and here I am digging through a box for 30 year old pictures.

My mother and I did finally find some, but not the recent ones of my father’s grave, which my mother is frantically trying to find now.  We have no idea where they are and she needs them before she leaves for New York City in a few hours.

Hence the title of my post.

My advice? Do NOT wait until the last minute.  It really, really sucks.
