Happy Friday: Location, Location, Location!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my bubbly little love monkeys! Did this week sneak up on you like a ninja in the night, try to best you with its ninja like ways and did you take it down with your nunchucks like a magic super ninja? You’re ding-dangly right you did!

Just a wee little note that next Friday begins the Sizzling Summer Author Extravaganza! I would like to thank the lovely Lisa Sanchez for hosting this event, I’m so honored for the opportunity to participate! Make sure you pop on over to see the list of amazing authors participating! So so many talented authors, I’m humbled to be among them.

Okies, let’s get to the grit! Now, you may or may not know that our fair Aeron has a secret island that she resides on when she is not off doing her piratey type things. So strap on your bathing suit, grab a beach towel and a drink with an umbrella in it and behold Aeron’s Island…

Can you just picture Orrin lounging on the sand?

Or maybe sprawled across a rock in the sun?

Or maybe, just maybe, taking a wee bath under a waterfall? Hang on, let me help you a bit…

Okay, so I just wanted an excuse to post these photos of Ben Hill, is that so wrong?

Well, my chocolatey little love monkeys, that is all I have for you today. Stay tuned for next Friday when I bring you another little treatastic treat! Don’t forget to pop on over to the Sizzling Summer Author Extravaganza calendar and scroll to July to check out who is blogging when and mark YOUR calendars! Also, pop on over to my Facebook Fan Page and say hey, I just love hearing from you 🙂

Have a great weekend my little love monkeys!

Until next time,

Patty <3

Happy Friday: All Aboard


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my cheeky little love monkeys! Did you smite the June Gloom with your delightful little sunshiny selves this week? Darn right you did!

Okies my darlings, today we have official b’ness so brace yourselves. If you took a peeky-poo at the first blog mention by A Tale of Many Reviews you read that Cat O’ Nine Tails was to release in September and you may have said to yourselves, “But, Patty told us the release was in August.” *cue collective confused faces* Have no fear my sweets, unfortunately things happen that are beyond the realm of mortal control and dates change, but it’s all good! The new release date for Cat O’ Nine Tails is September 20th!

Now, no frowny faces because I have a bit of news that will cheer you right up!

Next month I will be participating in Lisa Sanchez’s Sizzling Summer Author Extravaganza! What is that you ask? It’s an extravaganza of sizzling summer author awesomeness, silly! Seriously though, authors will guest blog many with exclusive giveaways of books and swag! YAY! Free bits!!

So, I hear your wee little voices saying, “But Patty, your book isn’t due out until September, what do YOU have to giveaway?”

I’m so glad you asked my lovelies! I will be giving away an ARC (Advanced Readers Copy) of Cat O’ Nine Tails! That’s right my crunchy love monkeys, you, yes YOU, can be one of the very first people to get your pirate on! I’m super excited about it, I hope that you are too!

Well, I was going to leave that as your Friday treat because that is a lot  of information in one little blog, but I can’t just leave you all with nothing to look at!

So, I will introduce you to Aeron’s pride and joy, the one thing she treasures above all else, her beloved ship, The Mermaid…

She is a beautiful vessel, is she not?

She flies her colors proudly

But really, don’t you think Aeron would fly this flag?

It’s like it was made for her!

Well my darlings, I must get my hind-end in gear, I have an assload of things to do today in prep for the weekend! Gonna be having my daddy and my brother over for Father’s Day! They are great fathers, as is my amazing husband! So give the fathers in your life some love this weekend! However, as much as I love my pops, he’s still not allowed to read Cat O’ Nine Tails 😉

Stay tuned for next Friday my love monkeys and be sure to check out my new links to the right——————>

There is all my stuff, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, my publisher, Sizzling Summer Extravaganza and my sister authors from Omnific, check them out, they are some amazingly talented women!

Until next time,

Patty <3

Happy Friday: Math, Cat O’ Nine Tails Style!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my fabulotastic little love monkeys! Did you open up a can o’ whoop-ass and feed it to this week and show it who’s boss? Yeah ya did!

Well, at least this week was a little less hectic for yours truly. It was the last week of school for the girls which means no homework! WOO HOO! Plus, as you saw in my blog earlier this week, the manuscript is off to the boss lady managing editor! Again I say WOO HOO! Aaaaaaand to round out the fun, it is a mere two months until Cat O’ Nine Tails release! TWO MONTHS!! That’s just 60 days! I think that’s deserves a wave, don’t you?

All together now…WOOOooooooOOOOOOoooooooOOOOOOOOOooooo!!!

So, in celebration of all that, I’m going to give you a little math lesson, Cat O’ Nine Tails style!

It’s no big secret that math and I are NOT friends. Heck, I have to get the boys to help the girls with their arithmetic homework sometimes because it’s beyond my skill level and we’re talking 4th grade stuff here.

That being said, this is the way I like to do math 🙂

Let’s take our heroine, she-pirate extraordinaire, Aeron Lynch…

Brought to life by none other than the fabulously gorgeous, Rachelle Lefevre…

And add one super hunky hero bounty hunter, Orrin Walsh…

Brought to life by what we assume is a Photoshopped version of, Ben Hill but could very well be just a mystery man. I’ll give you all a moment to stare deep into his blue eyes and ogle his manly self….

And then add one lagoon, complete with waterfall on a secluded pirate island…

All of that equals…well, in my head, it equals this…

Now THAT is how I like to do math 😉

Well there you have it my sweet little love monkeys! Did you like that treat? Don’t forget that you can find all these photos on my Facebook! I now have one of those author/fan page things so that is where all the photos will be from now on. I will be changing the link in the upper right but I will also give it to you here Facebook Fan Page you can go over there and click the little “like” button and like me because I not only like you, I LOVE YOU!

That is all from me this week my darlings! I hope you have a great weekend, mine is starting off great because I’m heading off to get my hair did! Be safe and be good to each other! Stay tuned for next Friday when I whip up some other little bit of treaty goodness for you 🙂

Until next time,

Patty <3

One Step Closer!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hidey ho love monkeys!

Just a quick little bloggly boo to keep you posted as to how things are shaping up in the publication of Cat O’ Nine Tails. The manuscript is now in the hands of my managing editor *aka* The Boss Lady.

I have to admit, my first thought was, “EEEP!” followed by a series of neurotic freakouts that included but not limited to, odd noises, spontaneous hyperventilation and jumping around the house in glee.

Yeah, I’m a dork, but this you already knew right?

That’s all for now, my darlings! Please stay tuned, I’ll be back on Friday with your treat 🙂

Until next time,

Patty <3

Happy Friday: The Tunes


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my sparkly little love monkeys! Did this week lay down and behave for you like a good little week should? You’re darn right it did!

Whew! Another bonkers week here in the 661 filled with not one, but two days at the school for Gold Rush Days. Why two? Tis the joy of being the parent of twins, I get to do everything twice. On top of that happy happy joy joy bit of fun, the oldest boy spawn began drivers education yesterday. I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, he’s 16 and it’s what 16-year-old kids do, I did it when I was 16. On the other hand, I still have to remind the boy to do things one shouldn’t oughta have to remind a person to do and in that case does he REALLY need to be behind the wheel of a car? So far he’s doing well though, they took a quiz in class and he got 100% so maybe, just MAYBE I’m just being a super paranoid parent. Honestly, I know myself and I do tend to lean toward the paranoid side where my kids are concerned, go figure.

Anyway, moving on to what you really want, you’re Friday treat!

So, for this week I thought I share with my special little love monkeys the music that got my creative writing juices flowing while I was creating my little world o’ pirates 🙂

[gigya width=”450″ height=”470″ src=”http://www.musicplaylist.us/mc/mp3player_new.swf” quality=”high” flashvars=”config=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.indimusic.us%2Fext%2Fpc%2Fconfig_black.xml&mywidth=450&myheight=470&playlist_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.musicplaylist.us%2Fpl.php%3Fplaylist%3D85972956%26t%3D1307119673&wid=os” wmode=”transparent” ]
Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

Now, hopefully you all can see the little playlist thingy. I’m technologically challenged so I may have very well royally screwed up the code dohickey thing and you are all staring at a blank space where said playlist-a-majigger should be. If that’s the case, I will grab my techno master, the Divine Miss Mindy, to walk me through how to fix said sitch.

If in fact you ARE looking at a playlist, please enjoy the tunes! There is quite a few tunes from the Pirates of The Caribbean series, as well as the music from the ride, because who doesn’t love that right? I even added one from the Jonai because as much as I hate to admit it, I liked it. Yes, I liked something by the Jonas Brothers, sue me. Also, the first song, Truth of the Legend by Kevin MacLeod, is quite new to my repertoire as it is the music in my book trailer! Yep, that’s right, as sneak peek in a manner of speaking 🙂

So there you are my darlings, your Friday treat! I hope you enjoy music as much as I did, music can be such a huge part of the writing process I wanted to share mine with you!

Because nobody loves their love monkeys more than I do!

I will also be posting the playlist on my Facebook page so you can find it there as well! What? We aren’t Facebook friends? Shoot me a request and let us fix that situation, shall we! And while you are at it, pop on over to Twitter and Goodreads and let us be friends EVERYWHERE! Links are up to the right 🙂

That is all from me, my bombdiggity love monkeys! Please stay tuned for next week’s Friday treat!

Until next time,

Patty <3
