UPDATE: 2nd Annual Local Author Celebration!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hidey ho my fantabulous little love monkeys!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

As promised, I’m here to update y’all on the 2nd Annual Local Author Celebration

fol

So, as you see there are going to be panel discussions and I just found out that I am going to be on the Romance Panel from 2:30-3:00.

I’m not even going to pretend that I’m not freaking the hell out. I think I mentioned that before in my last blog. Yeah. As the day gets closer the more I’m freaking out so by the time next Saturday gets here I’m going to be a giant balloon of nervous gas. I’m terrified that someone is going to ask me a question and I’m going to open my mouth to answer and belch. Or fart. Or babble like an idiot. Or, quite possibly, all three at once.

It should be interesting to see what bodily function pops out first 😉

Have a fabulous weekend my darling little love monkeys, stay safe and tip your waitress on the way out!

Until Next Time,
Patty <3

Happy Friday~This Is Really Good!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my splendiferous little love monkeys! Did you grab this week by it’s proverbial horns and take it down like the bitch that it is? You’re fling-flanging right you did!

Dang I hadn’t realized how much I missed doing the “Happy Friday” until just now. So glad to be back in the swing!

Okay this week I started a self imposed fitness program. Why? Well, ever since I got sick in March and had to change my diet I figured, if I was changing what I ate to keep myself healthy, why stop there? And because I was tired of being a sedentary creature. Luckily I’m quite a realistic thinker, shocking I know since I’m a novelist, but in everything outside of my books I am very steeped in reality. I know that I’m not fit and I know that this isn’t going to be an overnight transformation. I also know that I’m going to have to sweat, which I hate to do, and I know that the biggest obstacle that I’m going to face is myself. I know that this is going to be the hardest part, the fight with myself to get off of my ass and get out there and move.

I also have to remind myself that I crawled before I walked, I took baby steps before I walked sure, and that I walked sure before I ran. Period. It isn’t brain surgery. So why is it so hard? Partly because it just is. It’s harder to stand up and do something than it is to just sit back and watch. It’s like that with everything in life so why should this be any different? The answer is simple, it’s not. I need to take the words of Tallahassee from one of my favorite movies Zombieland, “Nut up or shut up” or as I like to say, “Grow a set of tits and just do it!”

Granted this isn’t the first time I’ve tried to get fit but I really think that this is the first time I’m actually serious about it. In my past efforts I let the smallest thing thwart me. A cold, the weather, time, a hangnail…anything that I could think of. I always thought that it was the universe’s way of telling me that it wanted me to stay sedentary and I accepted that. Until now. Take last night for example. Last night I did a faceplant in the front yard. Seriously, I went down hard. Yeah this morning I feel like I got into a fight with a baseball bat and lost but I dragged my ass out of bed, I got dressed and I got out there. You know what? I went farther and faster than I had all week. Today I looked the universe in the eye and gave it the big ol’ bird! Today I said, you may want me fat, dumb and happy, universe, but you are going to have to settle for FIT, dumb and happy!

That is going to be my new slogan!

Oh! I got so worked up about that that I almost forgot about the Photo-A-Day in May! I don’t know why because it’s in the title of this blog,

This Is Really Good!

5-3 This is Really Good

 

I know, you were expecting food right? I thought I’d go outside of the box with this one because sunscreen IS really good and this is my favorite. Okay so I guess when you are looking at SPF 50 it is not so much sun SCREEN but more sun BLOCK but remember, I’m a pasty white, Irish/English girl. My people don’t tan, we hail from countries with no sun. I have two colors, white and red. If I want any shade of “brown” I have to buy it and apply it.

Well, that’s all I have for you today my darling little love monkeys! Stay tuned because I will be posting photos over the weekend as well! Stay safe and move, no matter if it’s for 60 mins or 6 minutes just move!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Now, onto zombie march news! I’m so excited for the march!! I have purchased the most awesome thing ever, a zombie baby! We’re not talking any old zombie baby, oh no, Horace (yes I named him) doesn’t just sit there doing nothing, he wiggles, growls and laughs when you push his belly! You have no idea how much I love his little veiny head, I can’t wait to put him in a baby carrier, give his a splash of some fresh blood and give him a disembodied finger to gnaw on 🙂 If only I can get my girls to leave him be. Seriously, they carry him around the house and beg to make him wiggle and growl. I swear, they are going to run out his battery before the zombie march can get here.

Happy Friday! Clarity~A Divinity Prequel!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my cheeky little love monkeys! Did you toss this week back like a martini; shaken, not stirred? You’re 007 right you did!

Alrighty my lovelies, you might have seen some talk on Facebook and Twitter about a Divinity prequel short. Well I’m here to tell you that it is true and my awesome publisher, Omnific Publishing, is working diligently to get it up and running for my wonderful readers! Until then, let me share with you the amazing cover and the official back cover summary!

Gasping for air inside an ice-filled tub. Convulsing from an electric shock to the brain. Struggling against restraints that bind and gag…

Just another day at Agnews, The Great Asylum for the Insane.

But for Evelyn, the night is so much worse.

Demons—wearing white coats and crisp white hats—prowled the halls, searching for a patient who would serve as their evening’s entertainment. And from the moment I’d arrived, I seemed to be their favorite play toy.”

A young woman committed to the asylum during the late 19th century, Evelyn knows she isn’t insane, that the creatures she sees and suffers at the clawed hands of aren’t hallucinations. Yet she’s all alone but for their unholy company and the doctors trying to vanquish these “visions.”

All alone but for the others who can see what Evelyn sees, too. And they’re coming for her.

In this short-story prequel to Patricia Leever’s Divinity, we meet Evelyn Brighton before the tattoos—before a century of training and supernatural combat makes her an official bad-ass. Both eerie and endearing, Clarity transports us back to Evelyn’s origins, revealing the crucial turning point that delivers her from misunderstood maiden to deadly demon hunter.

~~~

Now when I saw this cover I couldn’t help but see what it would look like next to Divinity and you know what? It’s looks so freaking COOL!

 And then I thought, you know what, that would make a freaking awesome wallpaper so I slapped that sucker on my laptop AND my phone and you can too! Just right click and save and you too can have Evie as your wallpaper!!

I’m still waiting to hear when Clarity will be released, but I do know what it will be really really soon and of course as soon as mama monkey knows, my little love monkeys will know, so stay tuned!

Be go to each other and have an awesome weekend!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Happy Friday: Pajama Rules!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my scrunchy little love monkeys! Did you gut this week, stuff it with frankincense and myrrh, wrap it in linen strips and close it up in a sarcophagus? You’re mummerifically right you did!

So, did you see my new trailer? It’s kind of awesome!

Oh, there is the giveaway on Goodreads, where we are giving away not one, but TWO copies of Divinity!

Okay, so yesterday I was reminded of a Facebook conversation I had with my friend Cindy regarding the wearing of pajamas all day and the rules that go with that practice. What reminded me of that? Well, on my way to pick up my girls from school there was a mom walking to the school in what was clearly pajama pants.

Now look, I’m all about owning what you wear and all that stuff, but there have to be some kind of rules in place or otherwise shit like this happens.

Also, as a stay-at-home mom, I’m alllllll about kicking around the house in my pjs all day. HOWEVER, after discussing this with my friend, we agreed that there should be rules for the practice of all day pajama wearing.

Rule #1- If you are going to be in public you MUST put on clothes of some sort UNLESS you will NOT be exiting your vehicle or it happens to be October 31st, in which case the wearage of pajamas is completely acceptable.

Rule #2- At no time is wearing your pajamas to the store okay. Ever. You can toss some sweats or some yoga pants on but your SpongeBob SquarePants drawers need to stay home.

Rule #3- Wearing sweats do NOT count as sweats if you are accompanying them with a pair of slippers. The wearing of the slippers transforms the sweats into pajama pants.

Rule #4- If you have asked yourself, “Hmmm, will anyone be able to tell that these are my pajama pants?” the answer is always a resounding YES! If you even half contemplate that said pants MIGHT pass as actual pants, no, no the can not!

Rule #5- I can’t reiterate Rule #1 enough, it is NEVER okay to wear your pajama pants in public! Sweats/yoga pants are just as comfy as pajamas and they are completely acceptable in public.

By the way, my friend Cindy has an awesome blog, everyone go give her some love will ya?

Alrighty, that’s all I have for you today, stay tuned for more blog fun next week!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Happy Friday: Introductions!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my perky little love monkeys! Did you wrap this week up into a neat little package with a big red bow to prove how much dominance you had over it? You’re flingin’ flangin’ right you did!

Okay so, keeping in the vein of introducing character’s from my upcoming novel, Divinity, let’s take a peek at someone that is pretty important to the story. He’s the head of the house, the direct line to the big wigs at Lebriga, the boss man himself, Mr. Alexander Gaius…

Brought to you by the amazingly beautiful, Mr. Jude Law! *dreamy sigh* Now, as I mentioned, Alexander is the boss. He’s always proper, always in a suit and is that guy that just gets better looking with age.

I think Jude is a perfect fit for Alexander because of that reason. As pretty as he was when he first sauntered onto the movie screen, he’s even better looking now, don’t you think?

He just exudes everything about Alexander, the fact that he is just so pretty to look at is just a bonus 😉

Okie dokie, that’s all I have for you today, stay tuned for Alexander’s theme music for on Monday and as soon as I can share the cover with the world, I promise that you will all get a peeky-poo!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Happy Friday: Introductions!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my fuzzy little love monkeys! Did you leap on this week and take it down like a lioness going after a gazelle? You’re rip roarin’ right you did!

So, a couple of weeks ago I introduced you to Evie and I mentioned her handler and that I’d be telling you more about her later. Well guess what? It’s later!! Today, I have for you, our first handler, Miss Tessa Jean Mayweather.

Brought to you by the lovely, Emily Browning! Now Tess is quite the character. She’s goofy, she’s fun and quirky.

Tess’ job, as Evie’s handler, is to work behind the scenes. She’s the one that gets all the deets on an assignment, she makes sure Evie has what she needs to get the job done. These two have been working together from day one, which works out to be about 112 years. That’s a long ass time!

The hunter and handler bond is one that is tighter than any other bond imaginable, it’s something almost otherworldly and cosmic. As a matter of fact, one basically cannot exist without the other, the connection is that tight.

Alrighty, there you have our first handler! Whatcha think?

Don’t forget, you still have TWO DAYS to enter in the Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop Giveaway for your chance to win an ARC of Divinity AND an ecopy of Cat O’ Nine Tails! Just click this little guy **HERE** and you get not one, not two, but THREE chances to win! You know how I like my threes 🙂

Okay, that’s all I have for you today! Stay tuned for Miss Tessa’s theme music on Monday as well as our giveaway winner! Have a safe and fun weekend my lovelies!

Until next time,
Patty <3
