So, there I was - perusing the landing page of News.com.au to find an interesting story to share with you all today, when this caught me eye.

It's a fried egg with bacon, nestled in the middle of a GLAZED doughnut! Yep, you heard right, you get protein, you get fat - not only from frying the egg and the bacon, but also from frying the doughnut; and on top of that, it's all dipped in sugar! Holy crap! I think my teeth just rotted, fell out of my head and landed on the floor while my arteries clogged up and I clutched at my heart - and that's just from looking at the picture! lol 

Now but seriously - has anyone tried this yet? It's not available in Australia so I have to live on the edge with my US friends. 

Was it good, or was it horrible? I'm dying to know.

I can't imagine it will be that popular long term, but then stranger things have happened!

I have an exciting Friday feature for you all today - it's a debut novel from author Jennie Jones, who you may have seen around Facebook land lately as she gets involved with other authors and chats about her work. 

Her novel is called The House on Burra Burra Lane and it releases tomorrow - so we're going to see a very excited Jennie! 

Here's all of her info - 

The House on Burra Burra Lane

debut novel by Jennie Jones (Contemporary fiction with romance and humour at heart).

Release date: 1 June 2013 (tomorrow!). Published by Escape Publishing (Harlequin Australia digital-first imprint).

Author Bio:

Born and brought up in Wales, Jennie loved anything with a romantic element from the age of five. At eighteen, she went to drama school in London then spent a number of years performing in British theatres, becoming someone else two hours, eight shows a week.

Jennie wrote her first romance story at the age of twenty five whilst ‘resting’ (a theatrical term for Out of work). She wrote a western and sent if off to Mills & Book in the UK who politely and correctly declined. She put writing to one side after that and took a musical theatre job. Which brings Jennie to her favourite quotation: “Fate keeps on happening.” - Anita Loos.

When Jennie’s life changed and a new country, marriage and motherhood beckoned, she left acting and the UK.

She now lives in Western Australia, a five minute walk to the beach that she loves to look at but hardly ever goes to due to there being too much sand. (Sand is like glitter; once it gets between your toes, you keep finding it in the house for months.)

Jennie returned to writing three years ago. She says it keeps her artistic nature dancing and her imagination bubbling. Like acting, she can’t envisage a day when writing will ever get boring.

Blurb:

A dilapidated house, a city girl looking for a tree change, and a rugged vet with a past. Just another day in rural Australia…

Just ten days after her fresh start in the isolated Snowy Mountains, Samantha Walker trips over a three hundred pound pig and lands in the arms of Dr. Ethan Granger — and the firing line for gossip. It was hardly a ‘date’ but sparks of the sensual kind are difficult to smother in a community of only 87 people. Now there’s a bet running on how long she’ll stay and what she’ll get up to while she’s in town.

Ethan has his own issues — Sammy’s presence in his childhood home brings with it painful recollections of family scandals and a bad‐boy youth. When the gossip around them heightens, his life is suddenly a deck of cards spread on the table for all to see. Then Sammy's past catches up with her... and it looks like all bets are off.

Excerpt:

            Sammy threw herself on top of her, lying flat-out. ‘Don’t move. Please don’t move.’ The pig’s body had sunk another four inches already. Sammy petted her nose and spoke softly. ‘Not long, baby. Ethan will be here soon.’

 

            As though her prayer had been answered, the sound of his ute’s engine sang on the breeze. She couldn’t see over the ridge high above her but she recognised the engine’s hum the way a faithful dog left at home would. And Mrs. Johnson’s 4WD was behind it.

 

            Both vehicles stopped, engines running. A door slammed, the children’s voices rose, sounding like pleas, and then Ethan’s voice, the low steady timbre telling the children to stay clear.

 

            ‘Here we go,’ Sammy whispered, and wondered if she was calming Ruby or advising herself to remain controlled when she saw him.

 

            The ute’s engine purred, then the tow bar came into her view. The door opened and closed. The tarpaulin ruffled on the tray. Some shifting sounds, and his voice again, asking the children to bring his bag.

 

            Sammy breathed deeply, steadying herself when he stepped to the edge of the ridge.

 

            The afternoon sunshine shone on his back. The wind billowed his tan checked shirt and blew his sandy hair across his brow. For a moment, he melded with the breeze and the tall gum tree behind him like a painting from another era. A time of bushmen, and horses and roping; the layers of oil on canvas darkened at the edges. The sunshine glistening through the emerald green of the tree branches, resting like a halo on the shoulders of a man at home on the open land.

 

            Legs akimbo, rescue gear in his hands, he looked as though he could ring any bell in the world.

 

            Sammy’s heartbeat skittered. She hadn’t seen him or spoken to him since yesterday in the kitchen and hadn’t expected to be in touch with him until … She didn’t know. Didn’t have any idea what would happen between them next.

 

            He had his gaze on Ruby. Then it moved to Sammy, and his eyes narrowed.

 

            Ruby shuffled her snout, as though she sensed his presence. She oinked, and wriggled in the mud.

            Sammy put her hands flat on the pig’s midriff, and pushed to keep her still. She glanced up to the ridge again. It was the strangest moment to feel thrilled. She had no right to it, but no matter what he was doing - holding rabbits, patting horses or saving pigs, her heart would always burn with pride at his composure. He was a flagship of strength and her eyes would forever welcome the sight of him.

 

            She straightened, wanting to meet his eye and let him know it was okay – she wasn’t going to create a fuss or behave in any different way than she had before yesterday. Her hand of friendship was still there, if he wanted it.

I am currently working with Angelien on book two in the Confidante Trilogy - Confidante: The Escort. 

It's due out at the end of June and if you'd like to add it to you TBR list, you can find it on Goodreads HERE 

The cover image will be changing, so stay tuned for a cover reveal during the next week! 

If you haven't even heard of the Confidante Trilogy yet - here is the first book in the series, Confidante: The Brothel - 
Picture
BLURB - 

Ok, I'll admit it - My mother in law used to be a sex worker. She worked in a brothel, as an escort and, as a madame in and around Sydney Australia in the late '80s. It's something that she has confided in few people outside her immediate family until me. We are polar opposites in many ways but we get each other - as a result I have become the confidante in her life which is how this series has been born. 

The exact year was 1989; Angelien was 32 when she made the decision to enter a brothel to help support herself and her two sons. She quickly became the most popular girl there with her Kathleen Turner looks and her excellent 'acting' skills. 

This is a biography about friendship, discovery and of course sex.

While reading www.news.com.au recently, this article caught my eye. 

It always amazes me that in the year 2013 there is still such a thing as racism and that it is still being taught. 
Teenage girl apologises for racist insult in letter to Adam Goodes
  • by: Jessica Evans, Mark Hayes
  • From: Sunday Herald Sun
  •  May 26, 2013 12:00AM

THE teenager at the centre of the Adam Goodes racism scandal has apologised for "being racist", but the Brownlow medallist she abused does not blame her.


In a remarkable day in Australian sport, AFL greats and players united in their fight against racism, but spoke of their empathy for the girl who caused the furore.

Collingwood fan Julia Surowka, 13, abused Goodes with only minutes to go in Friday night's Indigenous Round game and was ejected from the MCG after a long grilling by Victoria Police.

She told the Sunday Herald Sun she is sorry and will now "think twice", as she did not realise her denigrating comment was a racial slur.

The visibly upset Swans star stormed off the ground after Julia called him an "ape", leaving the rest of his team to celebrate a 47-point win.

Her mother, Joanne Looney, 43, agreed to speak about the incident with her daughter, saying the racist episode had upset the entire family.

In an open letter to Goodes given to the Sunday Herald Sun, Julia apologised for "being racist".

"Dear Adam, it was good to talk to you on the phone. I'm sorry for being racist.

"I didn't mean any harm and now I'll think twice before I speak. From Julia."

Goodes said earlier he was shattered but did not blame the teen.

'Racism had a face ... and it was a 13-year-old girl - but it's not her fault," Goodes said.

Julia spoke to Goodes and Magpie president Eddie McGuire on the phone to apologise for her actions.

She vowed in her conversation with the dual Brownlow medallist and premiership champion she would learn from it.

After telling the Swans forward "I'm the girl who called you the ape yesterday", she apologised.

"I'm sorry for calling you racist names and I'll never do it again," she said of her conversation with Goodes.

"I'm really sorry for what happened. I didn't know it would be offensive."

Goodes explained to the teen why the use of the word "ape" was insulting to indigenous people and she had to learn from her mistake.

The family says a gracious McGuire told the teen she was still part of the Collingwood family.

McGuire says Julia will be welcomed back to Collingwood matches.


The Magpies president was angered and saddened at Friday night's events, but that "evolution, not revolution" was vital in alleviating future racism.

"We've organised counselling services ... for her, her friends and family and we won't be abandoning her," McGuire said.

"We want her to know it's side by side we stick together. You made a blue, but we all do. We're a forgiving club, and we want to make sure that she feels she can come to the football and help her get through this situation.

"I'm sure Adam Goodes will help us in our pursuits.

"It's really important, though, that we remember she's a young girl and not to walk away from education rather than humiliation."

AFL boss Andrew Demetriou described the incident as "extremely disappointing".

Ms Looney is upset by the treatment her daughter had received from MCG security - who told her family to remain seated as they ejected Julia - and police detaining her for what she said was two hours.

"It was ridiculous that she was in there for so long. For two hours they interviewed her over her saying, 'You're an ape'," Ms Looney said.

"I hope it's done and dusted. I think it was blown out, for a 13 year old, it was blown out of proportion. I think she would take it back if she could. I'd just like to apologise to Adam for it being said and apologise to the Collingwood Football Club."

Lucia Reynolds, Julia's grandmother, said they had only started attending the football this season and it had hurt the entire family as well.

"I was totally shocked when she said it," she said.

"Given the circumstances of the Indigenous Round it was not appropriate - it's not just insulting to Adam Goodes, it's insulting to all indigenous people."

Witnesses say angry footy fans booed Julia as she was led from her front-row seat by MCG security.

Nearby spectator James Molony, 23, said the crowd lost interest in the football after the taunt, focusing their energy instead on an "extremely vocal" reaction with lots of swearing.

"It was extremely abusive and on both sides; not just the Sydney supporters, but the Collingwood supporters as well," he said.

"You could see she couldn't get out of the stadium fast enough."

Collingwood ruckman Darren Jolly reportedly comforted Goodes, telling him: "Please don't let one person ruin your leadership this week."

Salvation Army Major Brendan Nottle, who acts as Collingwood's chaplain, said he had offered to talk to the girl and her family to help them cope with social media backlash.

"There absolutely has to be zero tolerance towards that sort of behaviour, but at the same time the girl is 13," he said.

As you may well be aware by now I get a little obsessed with my TV shows. They're my down time and I love a good series that captures my attention, plus it's the time I set aside to hang out with my hubby every night and chat about what we think will happen next - it can't be books all the time unfortunately! 

Now that most of my favourite shows are finishing up for the season we are in limbo waiting for the Summer schedule to start up. 

I've started watching Kyle XY which is actually a pretty good series - it's had a lot of funny moments in it and I loved the first season, but the second one isn't quite as good as the first so far. BUT it's a great filler show while we wait. 

I found the following post at TV.com and it outlines what shows are coming and when they are airing and thought you might like to check it out too. 

Personally, I'm dying to watch Falling Skies  Hell on Wheels, Breaking Bad and Teen Wolf again - I absolutely love those shows! 
 

What shows are you looking forward to returning?

It's Sunday afternoon in Australia so it's time for a bit of a sneak peek at my most recent book available on Amazon and Kobo for only 99cents until the end of May. 

Here's a short excerpt - 

“Mia, I think you’ve waited long enough,” he said, his tone soft and reassuring as she handed back his phone. She’d tried to call Eric four times in the last twenty minutes and reached nothing but an inactive mailbox.

She had been waiting for him to show up for two and a half hours, and after witnessing the frustration and disappointment on her face while she tried in vain to contact Eric, Cayd didn’t want her to wait any longer. She was only upsetting herself.

“She must have figured out I was going to meet him,” Mia said quietly.

“Come, I’ll buy you dinner. We can figure out our next move there,” Cayd said, inclining his head to entice her to walk with him. 

Nodding, Mia stood up from the table and followed beside him as they exited the coffee shop.

“I noticed a pub down the road a bit, we can walk there if you’d like?”

Nodding again, Mia followed along beside him, even taking his elbow when he offered it to her, sliding her own arm through the crook of his and leaning into him a little for support. So grateful right now that she wasn’t doing this on her own anymore.

As they rounded the corner, the pub’s beer garden came into view and the sounds of happy dinner time chatter filtered through the air towards them. Mia found herself scanning the tables with interest, noting how each person seemed ecstatically happy compared to her own internal turmoil. Especially the couple in the corner that looked so familiar to her that she almost stopped walking and stared.

“Keep walking Cayd,” she insisted as her heart started to thud in her chest, her coffee filled stomach, swirling uneasily.

“Why?” he asked, following her gaze and raising his eyebrows as realisation dawned on him. “Oh wow, that’s her, and is that - ?”
