SUVs on ice

Last year we had a horrifically cold and snowpacked winter. We lucked out this year and have had moderate temps and just a dusting of snow.

Until this last weekend.

The snow wasn’t deep — only 7.5″ of the white stuff. But the below freezing temps are brutal.

It really hurts more when you’ve had mild weather, and then get slapped with this cold icy stuff.

Monday was the worst. I made it to work — left home early arrived late due to the driving conditions. Coming home that late afternoon, I did fine until I was a little over … Read the rest »

This and that

I just finished and turned in my sheikh book for Harlequin Presents, and am enjoying the writing break before the revisions/edits roll in. Though I want to enjoy the Holidays this year (instead of writing through them) I am anxious to start the next proposal.

Playing catch up on all that’s been left for want keeps me from doing that. And wow, a lot of stuff was ignored around the house. Eww

The fall newsletter just went out, so watch your inboxes.

I had a great time at the Moonlight and Magnolia conference. It was wonderful to meet my Kensington editor, Peter Senftleben. Such a great guy!

Had so much fun will fellow Presents author Lynn Raye Harris, and Modern Heat author Kimberley Lang. A bit bummed Kim didn’t win a Maggie. 🙁

Michael Hauge’s workshop was fabulous, and even as a non-plotter I saw ways to improve my haphazard (no, organic!) writing style. … Read the rest »

Where’d the summer go?

Well, for me, it was mainly consumed with writing. I had copy edits on In A Cowboy’s Arms, revisions on the continuity which was an experience, and RWA National conference in Orlando.

The conference was a fabulous break from the grind of a day job and writing deadlines, though I actually worked on my revisions at conference.

I connected with dear friends and met new ones — one who’s just gotten an offer from Harlequin Presents!!! Woohoo, Tatia! So thrilled for you!

There will be more on that later.

I’m writing my first sheikh book for Presents now and absolutely … Read the rest »

Taking a break

Copy edits on In a Cowboy’s Arms are done and turned in to my Kensington editor.

Copy edits on Captured and Crowned are done and turned in to Harlequin editor.

The booksigning at Books A Million is over and was a success. Thanks much to Ty and the staff for organising such a nice event for me! And thanks to the readers who came out in the rain for the signing. 🙂

I’m blogging Thursday, June 17, at Magical Musings where I’ll give away an autographed book to one lucky reader. I’m also blogging the same day at I Heart Read the rest »
