South Florida is on fire. Yikes!
I don't mean the other side of Florida, although that's possible. I mean MY part of Florida.
The piece of the Sawgrass Expressway that lies between my day job and my house, was on fire. It was closed off. Helicopters hovered overhead. My hubby called to warn me to take a different way home. Our switchboard operator at the day job who fancies herself to be a traffic reporter announced to avoid that route.
The air was a bit hazy but not as bad as I would have expected since my day job and my house are not that far at all from that stretch of burning road.
A commercial for tonight's 11 pm news showed houses gutted by fire. I imagine that's further away, but I'm not sure. I'll have to watch at 11.
We've had fires almost every summer in the Everglades which is only a few miles to the west. But this is even closer.
On a happier note...

Here's a blurb for my story.
'Best Mates' by Ashley Ladd
Lovers Alec Russert and Kevin Cosby feel horrible for their best mate, Jennica Chapman, when her current beau dumps her. And yet, they're glad he's out of her life.
Unfortunately, thirty-six year old Jennica thought this was her last chance to have a baby, and she's much more upset about this than losing the boyfriend. As Alec is feeling his biological clock also, he suggests to Kevin that they help her out of her predicament.
But, they're the ones in for a shock when Jennica tells them they may be too tame for her sexual likes. It turns out that Jennica is a submissive and she loves to be bound and spanked by her master. The shock wears off quickly when Alec and Kevin decide that Jennica will like two Dom masters much better than one.
Soon they realize their best mate really is their best mate, and that she's always owned their hearts.
In addition, I received a review on my book, WILD FANTASIES, today that put a smile on my face.
Ashley Ladd has created a fun, erotic tale. She leaves nothing up to the imagination, and delivers tantalizing sex scenes. Her characters are a source of immense desire which sets the backdrop for extremely intense sexual encounters. I found this story breathtaking and hard to put down. WILD FANTASIES takes us on a pleasure ride that is impossible to resist. No one can go wrong with this quick, sexy story.

Oh! And I'm still waiting for the hubby to send the wedding and Daytona pics to me. Soon as I have them, I'll post them, including the drive-in church (no kidding).
