Post-Deadline Recovery aka I Missed So Much TV!

For the lasts weeks of September, I was chained to my desk* trying to finish the book that was due on October 1. As the summer ended and autumn began, I was writing for 10-12-15 hours a day and was not allowed to watch tv.  So, as all the new shows began and the old ones returned, I had to listen to my hubby laughing at BIG BANG THEORY or BLACK-ish or MODERN FAMILY and especially at THE GOLDBERGS!
It was not fair! Simply not!

 I turned in my book - BLAZING EARTH - and then moved into the recovery phase that follows my deadline binges o' manic writing. Now, when I was younger, in college, I could pull all-nighters and live to tell about it the next day. As I near one of those significant birthdays that end in "0", gosh, it's really hard to bounce back! I've found it takes two or so weeks to finally get back on my regular life schedule, catch up on sleep, read all the books I've piled for R&R reading. . . and WATCH TV!!

Now, I've begun catching up with our joint favorites - like SCANDAL and HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. First or next, I need to finish up my summer series like DOMINION (they've cancelled it!), CONTINUUM (last season), STRIKE BACK (holding onto last episode to savor it) and SLEEPY HOLLOW awaits!

Then I'll turn my attention to trying a few of the new shows, like BLINDSPOT
and a promising couple of shows like LIFE IN PIECES

So, how's it going for you? Any new favorites or promising shows? Any of your past favorites returned or, alas, been cancelled? I'll be giving away two copies of RISING FIRE: Book 1 in the Novel of the Stone Circles series to two people who post and share their guilty pleasures aka tv shows here!  

 Terri has just finished writing BLAZING EARTH (book 3 in the series) while celebrating the release of RAGING SEA (book 2 in the series) and while also celebrating that RISING FIRE (book 1 in the series) just won the NJRW Golden Leaf award as Best Paranormal Romance!  Wooohoooo! She'll be signing at Turn the Page Bookstore in Boonsboro MD on Halloween (along with Nora Roberts and others) and has some other events in the works. FMI - visit her website or FB profile or FB Page or Tweet her!

My favorite has to be the Big Bang Theory. I don't know how guilty I feel watching it, but it's loads of fun.
