October's coming…
Friday, September 26th, 2008

…which means soon I won’t be able to gut out a swim in the cooling waters of my pool. There goes my tan and the new muscle I spent a summer discovering.

It also means I have to start a new book. The fourth in the Dark Realm series. I have the first four or five chapters firmly in my mind, but not a clue what’s going to happen for the rest even though I did write a synopsis and run it by my editor. As always, she says there’s too much plot because she worries there won’t be enough sex or the story will be too complicated and with too many characters. The cast is firmly in my mind, so it’s hard for me to see it from a new reader’s point of view. She’s probably right, so that’s why I have to re-dream the rest of the book.

There’s also the release of my next book, Down in Texas, and the accompanying promotion I have to do, including a fifteen day countdown that will be lots of fun. But I have to dream up all the selling points of my novel and use them to tease you—so it’s work just the same.

And I still have to finish unpacking from the Lora Leigh convention and get my pictures uploaded. I’ll try to get to that today, but right now I have a 4-year-old underfoot who wants me to sit with her and watch Forbidden Kingdom, so we’ll see how far along I get.

It’s nice having another few days to relax before I have to start the next marathon.

:roll:

    I’m glad you are writing more of the Dark Realm series, I loved the first 2 books. You can always tell people that Texas has real cowboys and if you can’t go to Texas get close by reading Down in Texas.lol Welcome back and have fun watching Forbidden Kingdom.

    I’ll be ready for some serious timed writing in about a week! I’ve lined out several projects I want done over the next couple of months. We can crack the whip on each other!
