A little breathing room
Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Just a little, before I have to go into promo mode again. Now that Texas Men is out, I have to look forward to next week’s two releases. Thanks to those of you who let me know how much you enjoyed TM—you know who you are!

The weather’s been crazy here—in the upper 60’s and raining constantly. The temperature dropped last night, so there goes my hope that the pool will actually heat up enough that I can slip into my wetsuit any time soon.

My life’s been a little crazy. I’m babysitting dogs while my parents are out of town. Could at least one of them have a bladder bigger than a peanut?! Both of them are Yorkies, which I find annoying. You have to remember, I was married to a canine instructor and am used to serious dogs with big barks. I’m not accustomed to watching where I step.

The past couple of months, I was hard at work on several projects—finishing up proposals, plus editing several works that are coming out later this year. This week, I took a breath and entered hibernation mode because I’m between contracts and nothing is pushing me to start on the last little deadlined project. I can’t write without adrenaline kicking my ass.

I had a couple of hopeful messages today. One concerning a publisher I thought might be a closed door. Another from my Dark Realm editor who loved by latest offering. Thank goodness. I was really worried she’d hate my crazy view of Hell. I have some revisions to make to the manuscript, but nothing really significant. Looks like the book’s a go! Woohoo!

Oh yeah, I did have one last contest winner to announce today. The last for the Texas Men countdown. On Sunday, I’ll post the name of Michelle’s winner. The winner of my contest is…Brandy. Brandy wins a $25 gift certificate from Amazon.com. I was going to offer her books, but I think she has just about everything I’ve written. She’ll make good use of the GC, I’m sure! :wink:

    Brandy!
    Let me know where you want me to send it! I know you’ll put it to good use!

    Thanks so much. And it’s not a horrible chore looking after the ankle biters. I just get grouchy when I’m not sleeping.

    Brandy!
    It’s on its way! Enjoy!

    Sasha!
    Thanks, but some break. I spent the morning writing five pages of responses to interview questions, and I’m not done. Then I wrote a two page article for the next issue of Rose’s Colored Glasses newsletter. I feel wrung out. :)
