Naked World Dominatrix Issues Orders


I hereby order the following:

SUN: Show up EVERY DAY for the next 3 weeks. You've made a very poor showing and you really need to make up for it.

POLAR VORTEX: You are henceforth BANISHED! Nobody likes you. And while that may not be adequate for banishment, the pain and suffering you caused in January are. There IS a young man in the Netherlands willing to host you from time to time, but other than that, you would do well to stay above the 60th parallel.

SNOW: Give it a rest already, will you, you attention hog? We get it. You are pretty and can keep us at home in our jammies all day long. But you know what? Some of us have LIVES to get to, and frankly, it's getting a little old. Especially this collusion with your buddy vortex that has kept us from just throwing you out when we got tired of you. I don't want to see you fall from the sky again for 3 weeks, at which time you may fall on a Friday and Saturday and then say your good-byes for the year. Got it?

FEBRUARY: You are ordered to move along at a normal pace. None of this wibbly wobbly taking three months in spite of having twenty-eight days stuff you normally get up to. And while we're at it, you've posed a very poor role model for March, so by the end you need to clean up your act.


So, erm... Guess you've noticed by now I'm back... I'd like to say I'm all rejuvenated, but that isn't true. Work just keeps getting larger and larger. It is AMAZING, FABULOUS work we have ahead of us. A real difference we can make. But MAN, my brain is frequently fried at the end of the day.


29 Days to Keeping Mum!!! (Seeking Blogs for a Tour)

Since I have a book promotion coming up, I need to get back to it, whatever it takes. Speaking of... I only have a couple blogs on my blog tour scheduled (Alex and Dru Ann at Dru's Book Musings) but if anyone is willing to host me, here is what I propose... CHALLENGE ME! Give me an oddball topic of your choosing and I will do my best to tie it back to my series, characters, mysteries in general... Ought to lead to at least some bendy laughter, eh? You can either leave it in the comments and I will come find you to schedule, or you can email me (so we can surprise people) (hartjohnson23@gmail.com)

I ALSO am releasing Book 7 from my serial this week (Thursday or Friday, I think) and ideally book 8 before the end of the month so I can concentrate on the Cozies in March.

I hope there's a light at the end of the tunnel, Hart! And yes...gosh, we need some sun. We don't have the winter clothes here in the South to deal with this weather!

Not naked weather, that's for sure! Good luck with the release!

You don't want to go naked in freezing weather. Body parts will freeze and fall off.
Looking forward to hosting you on your tour!

I read the last paragraph, and was all, "thank GOD. Oh wait, not PC. Thank GOODNESS for Book 7!" After re-reading 4, then reading all of 5 & 6 before leaving my toasty warm bed yesterday morning, I'm going thru massive withdrawal. Twitching and everything. Not a pretty site.

Excited to know I get to read lots of awesome books this month!! Or at least 2. ;)

Hmm... Where did leave book one?

I know it was cold here in FL when I had to put on sweats. :)

Hang in there! And good luck with your work and your writing and book promotions.

Oh come on! Only 4 - 6 tonight! Besides, you have a resident two-legged snow machine (i.e. teenage son). You'll be fine.

You are however not adding enough black rum to your tea.

I'd love to have you by for a post but I don't have the readership to do the effort any good. I will however buy a copy.

Glad to see the cover. Looks great. Love the title. Glad you're back.

Welcome back! The last couple days and nights here in Denver have been brutally cold and snowy, but we've had our warmer days at least. What you're going through with the now legendary polar vortex -- it's enough to drive anyone batty. Enough already!

And of course I'd love to offer you my humble, obscure blog for your Keeping Mum tour. I'll try to come up with a splendidly odd topic.

The weather has been weird this winter. We only get western winds, which is always dry. We haven't had any precipitation since late November. But at some point the white gold will fall from sky, I'm sure >:)

Cold As Heaven
