Good Monday Everyone!
Hope you had a good weekend and you're all geared up to have a fabulous week. Can't wait to hear about all the great books you read last week. I'm still in the midst of judging Rita contest books and am thoroughly enjoying myself. Lots of great romances were published in 2011!
Writing was a little stilted last week as my characters and I got together for a brief conference and couldn't agree on anything. Now however, due to an intervention by a new character, we are chugging along much better. I think, since this is a new series and so different from the LCR plot-lines, my muse and I were struggling with the new cast of characters and different motivations. With the introduction of this new character, we're both feeling better about our direction.
Also, I got a bit of disappointing news last week. The first two books in this new series won't be released until next year. Tentative dates are May and October 2013. In one way, that's not bad news since I'll have more time to write but not having a 2012 release is going to feel so odd. However, I do plan to continue editing some older manuscripts for self-publishing. So even if there aren't any new paperbacks from me, there will be some ebooks I hope you'll look forward to reading. Stay tuned for more on that!
My television interview airs today at 11:30 and I'm quite anxious about it. Seeing myself on camera is not one of my favorite things. (So glad my dream wasn't to be an actor!) I'll come on a little later and post the link if you want to take a look.
Okay, just aired. Here's the link: http://www2.alabamas13.com/lifestyles/2012/feb/13/local-romance-novelist-36462-vi-118970/
This week's plans include lots of writing and reading, which to me, is about as perfect of a week as one could get. (:
In celebration of Valentines Day and because I love you guys so much, everyone who recommends a book here today will be entered in a drawing for a box of assorted romance books, including two Last Chance Rescue books of your choice, and a $10 Barnes and Noble gift card. I'll announce the winner tomorrow morning. Be sure to leave your email address in your comment so I can get in touch with you.
Okay, that's it for me. I'm headed to my fictional little southern town where it's summertime and the fragrance of honeysuckle is wafting through the air. It should be the perfect atmosphere to fall in love but there's a murderer afoot!
Have a great day everyone. Now, tell us what great books you read last week!
