Terrific Tuesday with Lexi!

I hope you had a marvelous Monday. Mommy decided not to let me post yesterday because she shared a review of The Talisman of Darktree Hollow by E.M. McIntyre. She said it was only fair of me to wait until today because other authors get at least one full day in the spotlight on the blog.

The Talisman of Darktree Hollow (The Red King Trilogy, Book 3) by E.M. McIntyre

Darkness. One that seeps into hidden crevices, enveloping all it finds with crushing power. Trapped for so long in a prison without shackles, she knew her resistance would soon fail. She sighed, running a hand over the ever-familiar shapes drawn on the cave wall. Shutting her eyes, she willed herself not to lose hope. Would salvation find its way to Shay? They must make haste or all will be lost. She turned toward the cave entrance and gazed down upon a valley painted in colors of the rising sun.

Marvelous Monday with Lexi!

Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (The Muse Chronicles #2) by Sara Crawford

She's worried she'll have to face the wounds of losing Vincent, her Muse, her love.

Marvelous Monday with Lexi!

So... A couple of weeks ago, Mommy got it in her head that she should submit a photo of me to a calendar contest that a local pet store has organized on Facebook. This is the photo she submitted:

With no false modesty, this picture is pretty darn epic.

You didn't hear about this until now because Mommy assumed the organizers of this contest would remind her a day or two before the first round of voting, and she was going to announce it so our followers could vote for me. Apparently, the organizers of the contest erroneously assumed that Mommy had nothing better to do with her time than to sit on Facebook and wait for an announcement from them. Long story short, she missed the first round of voting and I didn't make it to the second round.

Mommy was pretty butt-hurt when she found out and ranted about it being nothing more than a popularity contest that was rigged from the start. I wasn't butt-hurt until I found out a duck (Mommy says it's a goose... WHATEVER!) made it…

Marvelous Monday with Lexi: July 30th!

Uncle Mike took this picture of me a few days ago. It's the bed I use when he and Mommy are working on their computers. I use it a lot on Mommy's days off because she spends a lot of time writing book reviews and visiting social media.
