What a week!

I had planned to blog right after the NE romance writer's conference last weekend, but it wasn't possible. I was hit with more craziness than I could have predicted. My final line edits came in for a story I have a 4/17 release date for. That had to be taken care of pronto. (See www.jasminejade.com on the 17th for my story, Djinn and Tonic!) The price of Quickies is being reduced to only $2.49! So do your part to stimulate the economy and save money at the same time!

I just submitted my story Giggles by Gabby for an anthology to benefit an employee of Ellora's Cave who lost her daughter in a fire. She held on for two weeks, but eventually expired. She was only 19 years old. Such a tragedy.

Today I'm sore, but my house is clean and fresh, and I feel so good about it. I hired a young woman (wonder girl) to help me with my spring cleaning. I can hardly believe the energy of that woman. She went for 6 hours straight. She wouldn't let me give her lunch or even water! She had two cigarette breaks (outdoors, of course) and that was all. I don't know if I ever had that much stamina! Maybe she's an immortal. One that has super strength and doesn't need food or water. Hmm...maybe there was a canteen of blood in her car? I can't believe what she did was humanly possible.

I'm SO hiring her again next year!
