Friday Fascination

Well…Hello and Happy Friday!


It’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted on my blog and, for the record, I have no intention of jumping into the regular blogging routine again. I may review a book I love from time to time, I’ll definitely share book news, and I may participate in the ever-so-rare blog hop. Ain’t that enough? 🙂 In my defense, my site kinda-sorta crashed a few months ago and I lost a ton of information, so I took it as a sign to update my website (which it seriously needed).

I made my first website, which I was quite proud of, but let’s be honest…it wasn’t exactly professional looking. Now, it is! Thanks to the amazing Jena at Pure Textuality. And if you’d be so kind as to comment if you received notification of this post (in everything I lost during the crash, I have zero idea how many contacts went with it) and let me know you’re still there, I’d appreciate it!

Also, in case you don’t follow me elsewhere, I’m so excited to share that I’ve contracted with Totally Entwined Group to publish my contemporary romance series, Music, Love & Other Miseries.


I’m just a little excited about it. 🙂 While I don’t have covers yet, you can check out the blurbs and my Pinterest boards (on the lovely “Extras” tab above). I have no shame in saying I love these characters and their stories. I’ll keep you posted when I get cover news!


  1. Cute kittens!

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Thank you, Ann – Jena did a great job with figuring out a design from my minimal input. She’s a genius!

  6. P.J. Coldren says:

    I have a mind like a steel sieve, so I can’t comment on the differences between this and your previous site. This looks marvelous. Thanks for the chance to win.

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Thanks, P.J., and I can assure you the new design is SO MUCH better! 🙂

  8. Danielle Hammelef says:

    Purple is my favorite, so I love the look of your site. Plus, it looks very organized and clean, which is also a plus!

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Thanks, Danielle! Purple is my favorite, too, so it seemed like a good choice, something that could blend PNR with contemporary without being overwhelming.

  9. bev taylor says:

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Ha! Just a friendly smile, Bev. 🙂

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Thank you, Kat – happy weekend to you too!

  11. Hutton says:

    Love the teeth!
    Reminds me of “Honey, I’m home!” Grrr!

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Or is it “Heeeere’s Johnny”? 🙂 No, no definitely no psycho, ax-wielding vibe here!

  12. jennifer c. says:

  14. Cindi Knowles says:

    I never saw your old site but I do like this one. Your gifs are funny! The shark still has me laughing!

      Well, we’ll just pretend the previous website didn’t exist…glad you like the shark!

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Thanks, Glen!

  17. Katrina Dehart says:

      Thank you, Katrina!

  18. Kara Marks says:

    Hi—the page looks great!

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Thanks! <3

  19. Tannie Lowe says:

    Hi. Love the purple heart design.

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Isn’t that sweet? I gave Jena an idea of what I wanted and she made it perfect!

  20. Bonnie Raymond says:

    Hi! Very cute kittens. Sad about the destroyed plants but it could have been worse. My sister’s cat is appropriately named “Demon Spawn.” Killing plants would just be a warm-up act for him. Count your blessings. (:->

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Ha! That’s what I’m afraid of…that they’re just learning the ropes before moving onto bigger, more challenging prey.

  21. Sue MacKenzie says:

    The new site looks great, and well done on whomever decided on all of the purple 😀

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Thanks, Sue – purple is my fave!

  22. Yay! Good for you on all fronts.

    My website is deplorable. Since I switched to a new maintenance guy who does my hosting and updates and such I hate almost everything about my website. I just have to bite the bullet and find the time somewhere to build myself a new one. (sigh) I guess the good news is that I can still pride myself on learning new tricks right?

    Looking forward to more updates!

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Ah, I feel your pain – that’s exactly where I was, so when the site went kerflooey I had to decide whether I wanted to take some of my very precious, nonexistent free time to make a new site or hire someone. I’m SOOOOO glad I had Jena do it. Zero regrets and it saved me the headache of dealing with it (and there’s no way I would have made it as pretty). Worth every penny!

  23. Melissa says:

    Looking good!! Can’t go wrong with kitties either!

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Thank you, Melissa- and you’re right on the kitties. They’re adorable stinkers.

  24. Rose Wright says:

    Hello! I subscribe to your newsletter and I, too, like kittens! I loved the picture “My brain has too many tabs open”. That is sooooo me!

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Aw yeah…I’m feeling that today for sure! Thanks for keeping this particular tab open, Rose! 🙂

  25. Julie Waldron says:

    Hi, I subscribe to your newsletter! The site looks great! 🙂

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Hi, Julie!!
