Happy Gay Friday & A Free Story, Werewolves, A Song and Dropbox

I wonder what these cookies are up to and where else that lipstick will end up, don’t you? ;)

Today I’ve finally signed up for Dropbox, and thanks to a referral from Chris she and I got some extra free space besides the 2 GB you already get for free. Dropbox is basically a place to store your digital files safely on a secure server, which makes it possible to access your files from every computer or device you possess, even when it’s not your own (which can come in handy on vacation as well). I was getting tired from emailing my files back and forth between my iPad, PC, laptop and phone, so I think this is a good solution for me. There are apps for the devices too and I’ve tried it all out this afternoon and it’s working. Yay!
It’s especially handy to assemble all my cookies in one place, and it also works well for my music - no matter what happens, I can always access my favorite songs, like this classic one for example:

On a more bookish note: at the moment I’m trying to catch up with JL Langley’s With or Without series. I’ve read With Love a little while ago. According to Goodreads this is the first book in the series, but it’s not really connected to the other books. I’ve also read the second book, Without Reservation and now I’m in the middle of the third book, With Caution. Recently the fourth book was released, With Abandon, which will be one of my next reads. All these books are werewolf shifter stories with a very strong element of mating, aka instant love. And I’m loving it so far! Wow, these guys are unbelievably sexy! And additionally the books have a good plot aside from the romance arc.

A different type of sexy: Sloan Parker has a new short story available on her website: The Break In! And the best thing about it is that it’s for free! Just go here to download it (in several formats). I’ve read it during my lunch break yesterday and it completely lifted my mood. It’s a hot, surprising and touching story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Have a Happy Friday everyone!


  1. Hm, dropbox sounds really good. I have to take a look

  2. Hey hon, happee Friday! You know I'm interested in all things regarding IPad and this dropbox is very interesting! I must investigate *grin* For some reason JL Langley books hasn't come calling but I hope you enjoy catching up!!! Have a great Friday & weekend hon!

  3. Blodeuedd - Get a referral from Janna or I before you sign up for Dropbox - you'll get extra free space. :)

    Janna - Have you checked out the free short stories related to the series on JL Langley's website?

  4. Happy Friday, Janna!

    I just read With Abandon a few days ago. Nice but for some reason I just didn't like it as much as the others.

    Hope you have a great weekend! :)

  5. Hmm. Might have to think about drop box. I something "lose" books temporarily when I forget to download them from one place to another or put them on a stick and can't find it for months and months. Ooops.

    Thanks for the tip on the freebie. Have a great weekend.

  6. Yes, Blodeuedd and Leontine, what Chris said. Ask one of us for a referral! I should've mentioned that in the post perhaps...

    Thanks Chris! I haven't checked them out yet, but I will, as soon as I've finished book #3. :)

    I think you'll like this series, Leontine! Maybe not the first book (it's pretty short), but the second and third very likely.

  7. @Lily: Yeah, I've been hearing some disappointing sounds about the fourth book... Have a fab weekend too, Lily! :)

    @Tam: Look at Chris' comment about the referral too when you're going to sign up, Tam.
    Enjoy the short freebie! :)

  8. I LOVE the with/without series and have had the book on my kindle since release day (I had preordered) but with my review schedule I haven't yet fit it in. I'm hoping to in the next couple of weeks. Like you (and on what Lily said) I've heard it's not as great. Oh well... can't wait to read!

  9. Oh, it's definitely the cookie's color ;)

    Happy Gay Friday...even though I'm a day late. Hope you're having a great weekend!

  10. Those two are totally hot, even with the lipstick! :-)

    O_O you haven't read the With or Without series? Shame on you! Go read them! They are only among the best books out there!

  11. Happy gay friend Janna!! xoxo

    I have dropbox but I don't think I'm using it to it's full potential. Right now I have it synced with Calibre to back up all my ebooks. Beyond that I haven't used it to access my books with my iPhone or iPad.

  12. Love, love, love Dropbox. I used to accidentally wash my flash drives, so I finally tried Dropbox for storage. The best part ended up when I realized I'd accidentally deleted my entire WiP folder. I was able to recover it through the Dropbox website. It's nearly 100% foolproof!

  13. @Twimom: It's a great series so far. I might wait a bit before reading With Abandon and maybe it helps that our expectations aren't that high anymore, Jen. :)

    @Ava: I agree. :) And I hope your Friday was a happy one too!

    @Lis: Or maybe because of the lipstick. ;)
    I'm catching up and about to start the fourth book, so... not that much behind anymore. :D

    @FV: I don't know if I'm going to use it to its full potential either. I guess it's particularly handy when I'm on vacation, to back up my photo's and have access to all my books. :)

    @Pia: Oh I can see why you love it so much!! Especially the WiP folder would be a big, big loss I imagine! Thank goodness you started using Dropbox before that one got deleted! :D

  14. I've had a close friend recommend DropBox. I should really check it out.

  15. @orannia: You can get an app for your iPhone to access the files from any place you want. :)
