I've never heard of 'pantser' before - love it. Best of luck with your book.

Debra St. John said...

Yea for Star Wars and Dove Dark Chocolate...and for yummy vampires!


Arial Burnz said...

Hey, Maddy! I never heard of a pantster before I went to my first RT Convention in 2009. If you don't know what it means...it means you write your book by the seat of your pants, not knowing how the story will end until you write it. Hee hee!

Arial Burnz said...

Hello, Debra!! You can't go wrong with any of those, huh? I'm with you, girlie!!

Arial Burnz said...

Oooo! Maybe I should get Broderick to make an appearance on the blog. >:)

Nice to learn a bit more about Arial Burnz - the most amazing of cover artists! :)

I've always wanted to move to Ireland too. I've family there - my cousin having been the captain of Kerry's Gaelic football team and a national heart-throb (couldn't see it myself!)

All the best with your future projects. You are one busy lady!

Arial Burnz said...

Awwwww!!! Thank you for the wonderful compliment, LaVerne! :D You just made my day!!! WHEN we move out there, you and I will have to touch base!

AJ Nuest said...

Ahem...well...you truly know how to make a girl's day. Favorite author? HA! That's it...I'm coming to Ireland with you. Love you, sweetie!

Well, here I am again, a day late and a girdle short. Loved getting to know a little about you, Ariel. I've always imagined Ireland a lovely place to live. Scotland, too. And Berlin--my stepson lives there. But Paris...sigh...ohhh, Paris is my dream. Love it there and always hate leaving. But on to more important stuff than my ramblings. Your first kiss with your hubby is your most memorable moment? Well, now, (slides closer to the monitor)DO tell...

Arial Burnz said...

Hey, Vonnie!!! Ohhhh, Paris!!! I've been there myself and I have the same sentiments. Never wanted to leave. If I spoke more French, perhaps we'd move there. Hrmmmm...I have a few years before we move. Maybe I will!

So, what was so memorable about my first kiss with my husband? I'd been waiting for him to kiss me all night. I KNEW he wanted to kiss me as much as I wanted to, but he was just too shy. About 3/4 of the way through the evening, he worked up the courage to do it. The kiss curled my toes! So sweet and sensuous and full of passion. With foreheads together, he breathed, "I've been wanting to do that all night." I said, "Well what took you so long?"

Is that enough juicy details...or too much? LOL Hugs to you, Vonnie!
