It's November Already?

Just a quick update on what's going on in the world of Marie these days.

New e-book, Irish Squeeze, is set to release on January 1st, 2014 through Whiskey Creek Press TORRID. Very excited about this one! I've been spamming the crap out of my Facebook page about it so anyone who has liked my page should already know. (For those of you who haven't visited my page, what are you waiting for?!) I'm really pleased about how this one turned out and I poured a bit more of my soul into my main character than I ever have in the past. So, this one is pretty personal for me but it's also a humorous, fun read with some yummy, steamy moments. 

Also coming in January is my fourth child, Caitlyn. Yes, this will be girl number four. Apparently boys just aren't going to happen but I love my girls and wouldn't trade them for the world. This has been the most trying pregnancy so far and I'm hoping she won't come early and decide to be a Christmas baby. Umm, no little one, hold off!

Extra Life 2013 went really well. Participants worldwide raised over 4 million dollars this year! As far as my friends at Power-Ups Not Included, the six participants raised a combined $2,355. Nice! All this money will go to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals of their choosing. I'm so proud of Team PUNI for really sticking to their guns and gaming for 25 hours straight. You guys are awesome!

Though my gestational diabetes is not going to let me have a happy Thanksgiving meal this year, (No pumpkin pie? NOOOOOOO!) I'd still like to watch the Macy's Day parade with the kids and make hot chocolate for them that night. If it's actually cold that day, you never know in Eastern NC.

Assassin-Kitty Customs

Hello everyone! Hope your Halloween was scary good fun!

Today I want to get back to talking about another deviantART favorite that I follow: assassin-kitty. This person doesn't draw pictures though, she creates customizes ponies, hair accessories, jewelry and more.
As a huge lover of My Little Ponies, old and new, I always get excited when she puts up pics of a new customized pony on deviantART. She creates merponies, faerie ponies, pegasuses, corset ponies and more. It's always fun to see what new, unique feature she's sculpted on a pony body, or what elaborate art she's painted as a cutie mark. 

She also has an Etsy store where she sells her customized ponies so if you have something in mind, make a request and she'll create a perfect work of art for you! Click on the link to check it out. This year, her Lady Rainicorn pony won 1st place in the UK Ponycon G4 custom competition!
Recently she sculpted a couple tiny dragons that were just too adorable. Seriously thinking about getting a customized dragon since I know I'd never be able to decide what kind of pony I would want. They definitely have the awww factor going for them. 

As far as previous pony creations, here are links to some of my favorites:
