Good Monday All!
How was your week and weekend? For those of you who experienced Irene's wrath, how did you fare? I'm so glad it wasn't as bad as many had feared but looks like it still did substantial damage and unfortunately there was loss of life. My heart goes out to the families of the victims. I'm hoping and praying that hurricanes are over for the year. Even though the peak isn't until September 10, hopefully they'll die out in the middle of the ocean and leave us in peace.
Over the weekend, my family and I celebrated my mom's birthday. It was a rare treat to have both my sisters and my mom together. We went to see The Help, which was so very fabulous, then had a delicious dinner at Outback Steakhouse, then came back to my house for cake and coffee. Just a wonderful and SWEET time with family.
Last week I did a bit more promo planning and worked on a new proposal. I love meeting new characters--that's one of the most exciting parts of writing for me. And I so enjoy creating new stories and new worlds. That brings me to some bitterSWEET news. Several of you have asked if there will be more Last Chance Rescue books. I've put off answering until I knew for sure, but now I can reveal that SWEET REWARD will be the last book in the LCR series. I had hoped to be able to launch a new series with some of the secondary characters that I never got the chance to write about, but that's not going to happen either. Who knows what the future holds though--maybe at some point, I can do something with these characters, but for right now, I'm headed in a different direction.
So what's the SWEET part of this news? Well, I am working on something else and though I can't tell you what that is yet, I can tell you that it's a romantic suspense series. I'm already in love with my characters and storylines. Yay! As soon as I can share something with you, I promise, I will.
Tomorrow, as you'll recall, was supposed to be release day for SWEET JUSTICE. But then the release date was pushed back a week. However, I did promise that I would have a giveaway to take the sting out of having to wait one more week. So, tomorrow, be sure to drop back by for your chance to win a signed copy of SWEET JUSTICE.
Which brings me to next week. Tuesday, September 6 is the release of SWEET JUSTICE. I'll be having an all day release day party. Lots of prizes and books up for grabs, so be sure to mark your calendar!
After September 6, I'll start the month long giveaway I told you about. Everyday, from September 7 to the release of SWEET REVENGE on October 4, I'll be giving away a book, maybe two. I have lots of fabulous books I picked up at the national conference this past June, many of them signed. So be sure to check here everyday to see what's up for grabs!
This week I'm planning on continuing work on my new project as well as working on some upcoming guest blogs. As soon as I nail down locations and times for all of them, I'll let you know. Also, don't forget that the incredibly talented Marie Force will be here on Thursday, September 1 to chat about her awesome Fatal series and all of her upcoming releases. And she's generously offered to give away a PDF file of her entire Fatal series to one lucky commenter! Wow! Don't miss this opportunity!
No recommends from me today. I'm reading a bit here and there but when I'm focusing on a new project, I have problems concentrating on anyone else's story but mine. I'm hoping to complete my proposal this week and at least read a few more books before a new deadline hits.
Okay, that's it for me. Hope you have a fabulous day and don't forget to come by tomorrow for a chance to win a signed copy of SWEET JUSTICE!
Now, tell us what great books you're recommending this week!
