Rebecca Zanetti | When the Voices Think I'm Crazy
April 3, 2014
I think authors hear voices. Different ones at different times, all wanting
their stories to be told. Sometimes I'm a little wary with the voices and story
ideas...but these days, things are crazy in the real world. During the release
time of RISING ASSETS,
right now, we are moving houses. With a hubby, two kids, two dogs and an insane
cat, I am trying to move after living in our current home for twelve years.
I am losing my mind, but I've found a lot of lost socks.
We're only moving a few miles away, up on a mountain with a gorgeous view of a
lake and more mountains that reach all the way to Canada. This is my dream
house, and I really want to move. At least I thought I did until I actually
started boxing up stuff.
My son packed his room this weekend to take up to the new house, and thus has
been wearing the same shorts to school all week. My daughter has packed
nothing, and frankly, I'm afraid to look under her bed. There have to be
monsters down there...or more socks. Lots of socks. The cat is running around
like he's on meth, and the dogs keep pressing their noses to the sliding glass
door, clearly afraid we're skipping out on them.
My husband is the true calm in the storm, and I want to smack him sometimes.
There is no calm during moving! If you pop into my blog or FB page once in a
while, you know I call him Big Tone. He earned the nickname in grade school
because there were a lot of Tony's, and he was always the tallest. Big Tone is
a rock who keeps rearranging the items I place in the house—and things
look more orderly when he does.
Tony and I were friends in grade school, lost touch, and found each other during
college. Going from friends to dating was a risk, and a fun one. Just like the
hero and heroine in RISING
ASSETS. (Was THAT a segue, or what?!?) RISING ASSETS features
financial wiz and cowboy, Colton Freeze, who turns around one day and sees his
best friend, Melanie Jacoby, in a whole new, want to get naked, very hot light.
So what's a cowboy to do but become a friend with benefits...and maybe more?
Right now, RISING ASSETS
is on a special release sale of less than a dollar. I hope you enjoy Colton and
Melanie Jacobs is in trouble. With three jobs—including running her
ranch—and dwindling funds, she's exhausted. Not to mention desperately
trying to hide a secret. Unfortunately, her best friend Colton Freeze knows all
too well that's something is going on, and he won't give up until he knows
exactly what he needs to fix.
Then Colton learns the truth—that Melanie's future happiness rests in the
fickle hands of fate, and her chances for having a family are shrinking with
every passing day. Her only comfort is Colton, but when a heated argument
between them turns into an even hotter kiss, the boundaries of their friendship
are erased, leaving only a scorching-hot hunger for more.
Every kiss—every touch—is a stolen pleasure. But will their new
friends-with-sexy-benefits arrangement bring them closer together, or destroy
everything they once shared?

What makes me crazy? Someone talking to me when I'm reading a really good book! Can't they see the "Do not disturb" on the cover?

Family. Especially brothers, they know just what buttons to push.
We use to tease my cousin, before she married, that every time she
needed to do a deep clean she would just move, she moved that often for a

myself into it.

What makes me crazy? Intolerance and people thinking they "know better." But, poor and reckless drivers are a main reason I try to limit my driving to necessary trips, only.

People being unorganized. We were at Disney World last week and waiting for our food in those lines was crazy. They take the orders quickly, but the people in the back getting it together needed help. At times we'd see our tray sitting there for 3 - 5 minutes just waiting for someone to hand it to us. Every time this happened, I'd tell my hubby "If I was running this, they would be doing this and not doing that." He just humored me.

What/who drives me crazy? Folks who just don't know when to stop talking....people who put on their turn signals WHILE THEY ARE TURNING or who cut you off only to make a turn a few seconds later....so, what's the rush?
(Felicia Ciaudelli 12:45pm April 3, 2014)
Hmmm, what makes me crazy... sometimes my family... little quirks that bug me big time!

What makes me crazy is when I am reading a really good book and I keep
getting interrupted. It's like everyone knows I am at a really good part!!!
Or when you are telling a friend about a great book you are reading that
they have already read and they ruin the end for you.

Getting interrupted when reading, studying or listening to a favorite television program. Thanks for the giveaway.

I am so glad that authors "hear voices", it makes a book more interesting, especially when the authors talk back in print. I think its really called having a wonderful imagination and being able to write what you see and hear. If the book is something I am interested in, I hate to leave a page just to do something like answer a phone or the doorbell. Your latest book sounds just like a good one to get lost in.

Moving again would make me crazy. We last moved when my son
was 4 and daughter 2 -- they are currently 19 and 18. I've
sworn that if my husband ever wants to move he has to drug
me and show the house with me passed out in our bed. I will
NOT participate. :-)
Also, 2 faced people who kiss up and complement everything
about you to your face when you both know they don't like
you. Please people. Let's just be honest.

What drive me crazy is being constantly interrupted when I working with numbers and data and there are some people that don't seemed to understand deadline and focus.

Politics!! Ugh and everyone seems to have very strong feelings about their positions now.

I do not own an electronic reading device. I enjoy reading paperbacks. Please DO NOT include me into your contest for this, but I wanted to comment on what drives me crazy. I must say, just the other day, I had an appointment for an oil change, and upon lowering my car from the lift, they broke the large spring by the stabilizer. Instead of telling me they did this when they drove my car out, I had to find out for myself as I tried to leave. The car was making a very loud noise and scraping by the front tire. Upon inspection, they admitted they did this, however, only bent it away from tire so that car was driveable. No offer to replace at their cost...but told me they'd order the part and I could have it put on the following day for $100-$150. Came the next day for appt., and they didn't have the part even ordered yet to put on! He saw me walking in and started going online to order the part, but couldn't find one, only sold in pairs for $359. He finally decided to try salvage yards for used and found one, which couldn't be gotten until the following day. He wasted my day telling me to come back tomorrow! This was so irritating and very inconsiderate when someone does this. Used cost was $159. Quote wasn't even right, since he'd told me less than that for new!! Great customer service! I also dislike when people lie to you and try to worm out of what they've said, when confronted. They lose your trust by not being honest about it.

When I tell someone that I am low on minutes and to call my
other phone or message me and they call me 27 times on my
cell in less than 24 hours. Ugh!
