I opened up my inbox and found a surprise! I got a review of one of my very old stories, "Miles From You" (and, if you haven't bought it -- it's on sale until the end of today, only $1.35... what a deal!).
From The Romance Studio:
Ms. Arkins has done a great job with this book of memories of a different time in our history. Even though I'm sure there are still people like Paul and Millie around, we don't hear about them much. I'm glad the author reminds us. This is a sweet read. But remember what I said about needing tissues handy!!
It impressed me so much, I had to pull it out and read it again. And, yeah... I got a little sniffley.
I did quite a bit of my pre-plotting workshop for my cowboy story (maybe I should just call it "Bode"??) yesterday. My "workshop" is actually something I put together buy smooshing a great deal of info from "Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook" (seriously the best book I've read on getting your work in shape) and some of "No More Rejections" and "How to Write a Damn Good Mystery". Lots of tough questions, and I didn't finish it all, but I got scene ideas popping up all over the place. Food fights, and crazed bulls and .... well, I don't want to spoil it for you, but I'm excited.
Wonder if I can get it done before NaNoWriMo?

Of all the types, you're the most likely to eat for comfort.
You tend to have the same thing for breakfast every day. Why change what works?
Ah... YEP. All of it. You?
