I've been STUNG!

Hello, lovies!

It seems like I haven't talked to you in a really long time. I'd gotten back into the habit of blogging and making art, and then darn, I had to be a novelist again. But you'll be happy to know I've done my edits for The Exorsistah 2: X Returns, and there was a lot of demon butt kicking and girlfriends, and a hottie who loves Jesus! I think you'll like it. Comes out in September, but you can get a head start by reading The Exorsistah! Pocket books, 2008. No link, it's late, and I'm tired.

Now that I've shamelessly plugged my books, indulge me while I shamelessly plug B Sting Studios. B is for Burney, as in my last name. And Sting is all about the needle at the edge of my husband Ken's tattoo gun. I've been stung several times in the last four months, and tonight B Sting struck again I now am the proud wearer of an Immaculate Heart of Mary. I just love her. I didn't always, but she totally RAWKS, and if she's Jesus' mom, what's not to love. And now for the tat.

BOO yow!

Okay, how fabulous is that? Seriously? You can't see the details, but the heart has itty, bitty roses wrapped around it, and fire coming out of the top like my Sacred Heart of Jesus tat. And the fire has a lily in the middle. And of course, there's the sword that goes with Simeon's prophecy that a sword would pierce her heart. I LOOOOOOOOVE it!

How fabulous is Ken?

That wasn't rhetorical, lovies. Ken is way fabulous, and it'd be great if you visited him. He just started a blog for his design company. Just in case the link goes wonky, the URL is I'm sure he'd love to hear from you. So will ya go say hi to my papi for me. I'd be much obliged.

I'm off to Lexington tomorrow for a visit with my bff! I'll talk to ya'll upon my return. Pray traveling mercies for me.

I'll be thinking and praying for you.
