I know it’s been forever since I sent you a letter. I haven’t forgotten you – oh no. I’ve been going through some changes lately. Life-altering ones – No! Not menopause, not yet. I’ve moved. From Texas to Arkansas. Might as well have been Mars to Venus, the scenery’s so different. I went from rocky, dry creeks, buffalo grass and wide open skies to dense pine forest that shuts out the stars. So dense I feel surrounded, even though I’m miles from a town and have a hundred acres around me.
Why the drastic change? So I can write full-time. That’s right. No day job. All the bills paid by my creativity. That’s very, very scary. Like walking a high wire without a rope. But necessary now that I have so much to do. Let me tell you what’s been happening!
First, Avon signed me for two more books in the Dark Realm series that I began with INTO THE DARKNESS (Avon RED, April 2007) and will continue with SEDUCED BY DARKNESS (Avon RED, February 26, 2008). Then just last week, Kensington offered me a two-book deal to write two single-author anthologies set in Texas! And do you think they’d let me write them after I delivered my books to Avon? Huh! I’ll be writing them in parallel. So, no breaks. No vacations. No sitting and day-dreaming. No part-time jobs. I have to write full-throtttle, pedal-to-the metal for the next several months.
In the meantime, I have some short stories already out and coming out. Read more about them here, then go support a starving artist and get your copy! I also promised you the continuation of the My Immortal Knights series – just sign up to my newsletter list and you will get to read it, one installment at a time, every month. So stick around!
One last thing. I love to reward loyalty, so every month I’ll choose one newsletter subscriber to win a signed copy of one of my books and a gift card.
