Writing Time 

by Louisa Bacio

Lights darkened. Quiet settles through the house. An occasional snore breaks the silence. Finally, I’m able to breathe. It’s past midnight, and it’s writing time!

As a mother, it’s a tough sell to my kids. I’d like to go “off-duty” around 10 p.m. The late nights during the summer, though, kills the curfew. They sleep in later, which means they stay up later. No idea where they inherited the trait to be night-owls-in-training. (Not me! *cough*)

So when I get up by 7:30 every morning, how do I manage to stay up until 2 a.m. working? Ah, the joys of caffeine. Yes, I can relate to a Coffee Addicted Writer. I’m right there with you – hooked.

A certain type of peace exists at this time of the evening. Not only does the inside quiet down, but the world outside does, too. There are no interruptions by telemarketing fools trying to remodel our home, or sell the latest season at the philharmonic. I don’t hear from recordings pimping a political candidate. And certainly, no one knocks on the door to give me some “free” discount pizza coupons, or to lure me into a new religion.

At the end of the day, the mental to-do list has been put on the backburner. Even if something hasn’t gotten done, by a certain time I give myself the night off (and the item moves to tomorrow). Ever weigh what’s actually important to get done? Amazing how when time gets tight, suddenly making that pizza dough isn’t as necessary as finishing some grades. (And many stores now sell some awesome ready-made dough.)

The closer it gets to that time of night, the more I turn off. I’m a bit like a gremlin. Instead of not feeding me after midnight, you better not talk to me.

How about you? What’s your favorite time of the day, or night? What activity do you most look forward to? (That could be a scary question to ask.) Is it sad that I cherish my quiet, alone time? Blame on me being an only child: I’m used to it.

The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf: A Threesome Wedding Adventure

By Louisa Bacio

Planning a wedding can be stressful and crazy-making.  Planning three weddings at the same time? That’s insanity. While The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf embark on a nuptial excursion, Silver & Nick hold down the home fortress in New Orleans.

And as if everyone doesn’t have enough to deal with, the Voodoo King comes calling with a magic elixir that diminishes sexual inhibitions and an eerie quiet spreads across the French Quarter. Life as they know it may never be the same.

The threesome is forced to put off honeymoon bliss in order to banish the demons of their past, and embrace the uncertainty of the future.

Available via Ravenous Romance, Amazon and other eRetailers.

So tell me: were my rants unwarranted? Anything within life that you’d rather ignore?
