Friday Fabulosity!

Apologies for the lateness of today's post - blogger apparently had some issues.

Each Friday I plan to post about some fabulosity that I encountered during the week - whether it's wine, movies, food, books, favorite or new to me authors, and well - whatever strikes me as pretty fabulous. So, let's get fabulous!



I enjoy wine with my meals. My preference is red and living in Oregon allows me to be close to some fabulous wineries. A most enjoyable one is from Forza Cellars. Particularly their 2007 Syrah. It's also affordable and pairs well with roast chicken, lamb, and most red meat.




I don't often read sci-fi, but I picked up Song of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy and I'm hooked! I had to order the next one because there's no way I can wait to find out more. The story drew me in immediately - always a good sign. I may have to rethink my sci-fi interest.




Not sure if you caught this gem of a movie, but The Astronaut Farmer is fantastic. It's sweet, funny, suspenseful, and exciting. I always love a movie about the underdog - though I didn't actually appreciate the actual movie Underdog - just the cartoons. Anyhow - back to The Astronaut Farmer, it stars Billy Bob Thornton and Virginia Madsen with a great cameo by Bruce Willis. Check it out if you haven't seen it.




Looking for amazing hot reads with heart? Be sure to check out N.J. Walters. Not only is she fabulously talented, a total sweetheart, and super nice, but she's prolific as all get out, and to prove it she has over 50 books waiting for you to read! Pick one, you won't be sorry. You'll be hooked.




And this morning started out with extra oodles of fabulosity with an acceptance of my historical/fantasy/adventure romance Her Warrior Heart. It will release June 8th from Resplendence Publishing. Once I get the cover (which I'm sure to love and will be fabulous) I'll post it along with a blurb. Can't wait!


Thanks for stopping by. What fabulosity did you discover this week? I'd love to hear!

Those ARE fabulous, Ann! :) As for fabulous finds this Friday, I'm quite enjoying Sherryl Woods' writing--stumbled upon her Rose Cottage stories, and am enjoying these four sisters. Also, red velvet cupcakes. Which I don't currently have, but am wanting...

You are such a sweetie for mentioning me in your Friday Fabulosity post. Thank you so much, Ann!

The wine looks good. I think it might be time for a glass. :)
