Back from New York
Thursday, April 3rd, 2008

I was away attending the NINC conference in New York last Wednesday through Monday. I have so many things to talk about that I thought I might spend the next few days doing just that. Be sure to check back in for all the news and plenty of pictures of the sights and many friends I saw! I also downloaded the pics from my Memphis trip with Shayla Kersten and will share some of those, too!

But first, I thought you might like to see the cover for the cowboy book I just wrapped up. Kate Duffy handed it to me when I visited the Kensington offices, and I hope she didn’t notice the drool! I did a quick scan to share it with you, but hope to get the jpeg soon so you can see it better.

I also got a release date for the book–November 2008! So, mark your calendars!

    Judie!

    Thanks so much! Covers are the one part of the book where a writer has little or no input. I’m very lucky with this one.

    Think a reader will pick it up just on the basis of that chest? Ouch!

    Most of us will pick it up based on your name on the cover, but that cover will surely draw in some more readers.

    Fabulous cover, Delilah!

    I’m thinking of writing a cowboy story one of these days. Love the genre!

    NJ and Amie–thanks so much for your kudos!

    Ash–what’s keeping you from giving it a try? Cowboys are the easiest thing to write. Just think of a man who takes his time–with his words, with his hands–and you’ve got the essence of a cowboy!

    Debbie E!

    Thought you might like this one. We know what a Western fangirl you really are! LOL
