The Midnight Kiss

The road to the perfect fairy-tale romance is sometimes windy and rough. But once you find your soul mate, it only takes the first kiss to know that it's the one. Abigail Carmichael has always been a skeptic where love was concerned. Never believing she was good enough, she gave up a long time ago on finding her true love. So when Zach Ridgeway, the Quarterback for the West Valley Tech Devils and most popular guy at school, asks her out she can't believe her luck. But will she let love in? Or turn and run as she always has?

*For those who read and enjoyed 2013's Halloween tale Legends, comes at the request of my readers a continuation of Abby and Zach's blossoming love story. Enjoy!*

51: Strange Bedfellows – Pt. 3


“His ability to coordinate complex investigations and work in the many public outreach programs speaks volumes for his capabilities as both an investigator and a civil servant. He is a 12-year law enforcement veteran who has distinguished himself throughout his career and a commendable leader in the Avondale community. And so, in recognition for his outstanding police service and going above and beyond his call of duty, we award Detective First Class Michael Rizzitello the Medal of Valor for his display of extraordinary bravery.”

The entire room exploded into applause as many of the men and women got to their feet in celebration. Mike wheeled himself up to the stage followed closely by his partner, Victoria. Taking a look at the plaque, he handed it to her and she pushed him closer towards the podium. The event had been long coming. Several police officers and volunteers alike had been waiting for the next awards ceremony to honor the men and women of law enforcement.

We're back!

Hello everyone!

As you may have seen, my computer has arrived and I have finished configuring the graphics, moving the CC and save files and basically getting everything ready to start shots again.

Tomorrow I will begin taking pictures for the completed pieces and should have a new chapter ready to go for each story next week! YAY!

Thank you for being so patient with me and just being there in general! You have no idea how motivating it is knowing someone is out there anxiously waiting and loyally reading my work.

So, to show my gratitude, have a teaser of a leading man. 


Teaser Derrick!

Lights, camera...ACTION!

Hello all!

Well after building my dream rig on February 6, being told it wouldn't rush shipment on February 11 as I'd hoped and then sitting and waiting through the Longshoremen's strike in Long Beach, California and then not getting notified of the build until February 24 and THEN having to sit and wait all day today March 3 for the delivery (Seriously, 7:00 p.m. delivery time?? Way to put me at the bottom of the list!)-- IT'S FINALLY here! (Damn, run-on sentence much?)

That's right! The birthday present I've been dying to get my hands on has finally arrived, in style...and bulking mass at that. I am so VERY pleased to announce that this beautiful piece of machinery is now in my home and currently updating as I type.

Shots of the Beast:


Weighing in at 55lbs and 22 inches of pure bliss! The TOWER of POWER, the MACHINE from my DREAM, ladies and gentlemen it's...Red Lightning! (That got weird fast). And really it's blue but um...The Beast from the East is probably more appropriate. Unfortunately, I ordered RED LEDs and they gave me BLUE. I wanted everything to be red & black (hence the keyboard and mouse). But I guess that's my only complaint thus far. Other than that, it's kicking ass in every stress test (WOOHOO!) I put it through every stress test I know (Furmark, Memtest, CPU/GPU, Prime95, Realtemp, OCCT, Hitachi & HW) and it passed with flying colors!

Specs:
i7-4790K
Corsair CX750 PSU
16 GB RAM
3TB HDD
LG 14x Blu-ray
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
Nvidia GTX 980
Asetek 590LX 360mm Liquid CPU (push/pull)
24" ViewSonic VX2452mh (2ms response time plus game mode)
Windows 8
Overclocked ;)

(x2) since the hubs wanted one as well. The only difference in the systems, he has a Thermaltake case and I have an AZZA Fusion

And a bonus shot of Jason's:


Jason's was correct...all blue and black. Le sigh :(

 --------------------------------------------------------


And it is OUT with the old! Ignore the wire spaghetti under the desk...I haven't gotten around to tying/taping/concealing. (UGH! STOP LOOKING!) 


Goodbye my dearest Widow. You were the perfect companion for 7 years but I have found another.

Ok, so I couldn't say goodbye forever. I'm using the old rig as a streaming PC. It sits between me and the husband.

Welp! After I finish all of the updates and such, I'll start the long process of moving CC and installing my games. Hope all that goes off without a hitch (fingers crossed). And then it's update city for me :D
