My Favorite Websites

As mentioned previously in my Time Suck post, I am a bit of an internet person. I swear, I really need an unplugged machine, but I would die. When the zombie apocalypse comes, I'm going to be the zombie sitting in an internet cafe, pressing a button over and over again while the tiny light of my previous light goes out. So here are the websites I visit most: 1. Facebook - I generally stop here several times a day. But I call it work because I stop by my Jesse Petersen Author Page. That makes it Read more [...]

My Top 5 Productivity Time Suckers

This is not a statement that will shock you, but I'm on the computer a LOT. Between writing and promoting and also being a huge nerd, it's kind of ridiculous how much I'm clicking around. Sometimes that's good! I get a lot of pages done every day on my books and I can have fun interacting with readers online. But sometimes, I'm just screwing around. And here are my Top 5 Productivity Time Suckers (most of them online): 1. Pinterest. One day Pinterest showed up in my life and now I could waste Read more [...]

Catching Up on The Walking Dead: Season 2

When The Walking Dead started airing on AMC, I actually did recaps for Orbit for the entire first season. I loved it, just like everyone else, although I had so many problems with the female characters (you'll see that doesn't change much as I catch up). Eventually those problems kind of made the show hard for me to watch and I got... behind. Like WAY behind. Like, it's been recording on the DVR and I have episodes from February 2012 (or second season) on it. Yeah. That much behind. But now that Read more [...]

Childhood Flashbacks: Why Toy Hunter Makes Me Squeal

Have you guys been watching Toy Hunter on the Travel Channel? It's a reality show about Jordan Hembrough, a toy collector and dealer who goes out into the world and seeks out collectible toys from people's attics, collector rooms, basements and just about everywhere. He buys them and then resells in his store, at shows and online. Sounds kindĀ of meh, I know. But seriously, it is AMAZING!!!! But let me back up. I am a child of the 80s. I loved Star Wars, My Little Pony, Care Bears, Rainbow Read more [...]

Oscar Picks

I've actually watched a lot of movies this year. For me. It's funny, I love movies, LOVE THEM. But I hate GOING to movies. It is something about sitting in a theatre, not being able to multi-task and it I hate it I can't get out easily that makes me all... twitchy. So I have to build myself up to seeing something in the theatre. It's sad because my sweet, awesome husband LOVES going to movies. So this year, espeically over the holidays, I did my best to swallow my movie theatre anxiety and go with Read more [...]

The 6 Favorite People I Follow on Twitter

Oh Twitter, how I love you. Facebook, you're good, too, but I feel like I can respond more to general stuff on Twitter, versus the way Facebook makes us set up pages, I can't see anything my 'fans' post there beyond what they put on my page. They both have their value, but sometimes I can get into random conversations with people on Twitter, and you all know how much I love random stuff. So here are my 6 favorite people I follow on Twitter. They are awesome and maybe you'll like to follow them, too: 1. Read more [...]

The Best Show You (Probably) Aren’t Watching

So if you've ever visited here before, read my books or met me, you probably know that I'm a bit of a geek. More than a bit, to be fair. I like fun, weird, quirky stuff, including television shows. There's one that is coming up in about four days that I cannot wait for!!! A show that blows my mind just about every time. And you know what, you probably aren't watching it and you should be. FaceOff is a reality show on SyFy Network that is about make-up artists. They bring in ten or twelve up and Read more [...]

Documentaries I’ve Liked Lately

Okay, how much do we love Netflix? Seriously, it's like the best thing ever. Not only do I get to keep up with every television show ever made in history, keep up with movies, watch a bunch of shit I loved as a kid (Um, we watched the He-Man and She-Ra Christmas special over the holiday and...wow. Wow. Wooooow.), but I also get to watch Documentaries. I actually love documentaries. There's something compelling about reality under a lens, something I might not know about before I watch it. So here Read more [...]

Opening the Floor for Questions

It's a new year and with new years always come new promises. I've made one to myself that I'll blog more often and I have some pretty cool topics I'm hoping I'll be able to cover in the next 12 months. But I also want to write things that are interesting to you all, so I'm opening up the floor for questions. If you've ever wanted to know anything about: Writing Publishing Zombies Monsters Where Ideas Come From Where Babies Come From What My Cats are Doing Right Now What Awesome Read more [...]
