#NaNoWriMo2017, Day 7 or My Dogs Are Always Scared

Once again, this shouldn’t surprise anyone…

My oldest daughter’s boyfriend was over last night and we were watching the movie MAX about a Military Working Dog whose handler dies in battle and goes to live with the brother. At one point Max, the Belgian Malinois, is fighting off two bad guy Rottweilers. As dog fights go, it was fairly tame, especially compared to what it would have been like in real life.

But my dogs wigged out. Mr. Benny shook like crazy and Jett ran around barking at everything. Finally, I snuggled Benny close and, well, Jett kept barking and occasionally checking to make sure Benny and I were okay.

Today’s post is much later than I have been the last few days, in large part because I was trying to do a home improvement project that Just. Didn’t. Work. Sigh. More on that tomorrow. Maybe.

To answer a question I got on yesterday’s blog (I saw it, but haven’t approved or replied yet… your first comment has to be approved, but after that you should be good to go)… In Concert with the King is King Benjamin’s story! I’m so loving it! But it’s book 5 in Crowns & Courtships. It’s being written before 3 & 4 because it’s dedicated to my cousin who is quite ill and I want to get him a copy ASAP. As soon as this draft is done and winging it’s way to him, I’ll hop on book 3 and hopefully have it out by the end of the year.

You missed book 2 you say? Well it released TODAY! A Kaerasti for Clari is in the Out of the Blue Bouquet collection that released this morning! Be sure to check it out – it’s a super fun set where each book has a misdelivered bouquet of flowers and the in the last book you find out why for each of them! Plus, these are some AMAZING authors!
