Why is it every time you make plans, something happens so that your plans can’t happen. It seems that this is especially true when you try to make plans to benefit your own well-being and lifestyle. I have to apologize for my recent absence from Boudicabooks. Unfortunately, bed bugs have invaded my home and I have had to fight back against the invasion with all of my skill and dedication. In my war against the bed bugs, my writing time became one of many casualties. I am, however, back and I believe I am winning the war. My advice to anyone fighting against bed bugs is to schedule an exterminator as soon as possible, clean everything you can, put everything possible into the dryer at a high heat for at least forty-five minutes and find a bug exterminator spray that targets bed bugs to keep the infestation low until the exterminator arrives.

woman-with-speech-bubble-mdDue to the bed bug war and other events that have occurred during the month of July; I have not been as successful as I would have preferred in my Action Plan. I have not achieved any of my writing goals and I have not followed through on many of my plans. Consequently, I am repeating last months Action Plan again this month in hopes that I can discover what truly brings me bliss. I plan to focus on the Book Club part of Boudicabooks as I feel that it has been ignored lately. I look forward to sharing a wide variety of novels this month with you.
